Returning from exile

    I have decided to return to OnePlus product after being in Pixel exile. All I ever owned were Nexus phones until OnePlus One in 2014. I jumped ship after 3T because 5 and 6 series were a disappointment (to me). I ordered my own 7 Pro today. Don't let me down again Starscream.

    Your link isn't working, but my he does seem like a flighty one.

    It's hard to keep up with the zigging and the zagging.

    Oh look, it's the fake MKBHD again. Did you spend the last year waiting for me to return so you can write that one sentence? I'm flattered :)

    Will the real Slim Shady please stand up.

    Hey man, missed ya :) Glad to see you still prowling the dark web. Where's your GTi counterpart?

    Welcome back and enjoy!

    I hope the device lives up to you expectations. Care to share your initial thoughts about it?

    Thanks - long time no see. I see you moved up in the forum hierarchy. Congrats - I mean that with zero ill-thoughts. I am still to receive it, most likely on Friday. The 3T set a bar high for me (it still works, and my mom uses it as a daily driver). Yes, I was rather reluctant at first, but it grew on me and community feedback has been rather positive. The problem with forums is that majority of threads are from people who have something to complain about. The vast amount of people who are happy with a device don't comment as much. I went to my local T-Mobile store and I was impressed with the 7 Pro. That was what I called stripped down version so my expectations from an unlocked version from OnePlus are high. We'll find out soon enough.

    That's the spirit!

    Feel free to share your review in the User Reviews section when you're ready:

    Even my OnePlus One still feels solid (but unfortunately cannot used it as a phone due to SIM tray broken pins), but I love the new display and the camera is a huge step up over the OnePlus 5T I was using.

    I gave my OnePlus One to my dad in mid-2016; he put it through living hell of construction worker's daily abuse. It never failed him. We traded it in for $300 at T-Mobile last year and got 6T for my son who's very happy with it. I personally didn't like the notch, so I stayed with Pix 2 XL. If it wasn't for $300 credit, I would have kept it and it would probably be still working. Dad bought used OnePlus 3 and it works great. Mom like I said uses my old 3T. They're both in their 60s and just want phones that work without having to do any tweaking and both 3 and 3T are so far delivering.

    I can relate. My dad is using the OnePlus 2 and will probably use the OnePlus 5T as soon as my wife updates to a new device. Recycling and recycling. ;)

    I still have working Galaxy Nexus that I use as music player on long trips. My Nexus 4 still works and quite well at that.

    Links working fine from my end .
    I'll give you two weeks use and you'll be back with another reason to dump the your new OnePlus again.

    Mark my words Mr.

    I've been using the phone for two days and aside from being slippery, this is one spectacular device. OnePlus is definitely in the big leagues now. I got the 12GB/256GB version.

    It's a pretty solid phone. I keep wanting to take my case off and use it caseless and then I'm reminded how slippery it is!

    Been rocking my phones naked since Nexus 5 days. Engineers spend thousands of hours designing every curve, edge and crease for me to just slap a generic piece of rubber on it? Nope.

    What's with the trolls on the forum with fake YouTuber avatars? You're not Zac and neither is he MKB.

    This is the first phone I've used a case on full-time in years. The curved screen makes me scared about its structural integrity.

    Oh man, I still remember your "going away" thread. Welcome back. Is it bad to say I hope we have another one soon? It was damn entertaining.
