Skipping the 5

    So im not sure about the rest of the community but I was hyped for the oneplus 5 until it was actually unveiled and now I decided to skip on the phone. The reason why is simple......its a marginal improvement over the 3t. I was one of those people that got sucked into to the hype and bought the 2 when I had the one and the 2 was just slightly better. From that point on I had my reservations about Oneplus because 11 months into having my OnePlus One I already spent another $400 bucks on a slightly improved version and it wasn't worth it especially for a phone that was underclocked, overheating issues and will not be receiving Android nougat I am highly dissatisfied with OnePlus. Dont get me wrong the Oneplus 3 and T are great phones definitely worth the buy...... however the 5 seems just as over hyped as the 2....seems like the reincarnation of the same mistakes hopefully the 6 brings that excitement back

    From that point on you should have had reservations regarding hype.

    I would like to announce to the few people that are surfing the forums that my favorite color is black and not blue.

    Why you might ask? Reasons.

    Thanks for reading, have a nice day !

    I unintentionally skipped out on the 5. I ordered the 3T before I knew the 5 was getting unveiled and tbh, I'm glad I saved myself the $50. The main differences would be the RAM and the camera. Honestly I'm not a power user, and don't need that much RAM. If you do, then the 5 would be great!

    As for the camera, the 3T has an amazing camera. I'm able to take DSLR-esque pictures without the dual camera function. I'll probably hang onto the 3T for the next 3 years as I did with my original OnePlus1 phone and hope the company continues to please their loyal fans :)

    For me, once I heard the camera missed its mark, my mind was made up. I don't have enough gripes with my 3T to justify the "upgrade". Should the 5's camera software be subject to some software tweaking, then maybe I'll revisit the possibility. If not, I'm perfectly happy hanging in to my 3T.

    I actually had the 2 for a while, decided to upgrade skipped the 3/3t because didn't really see a big difference with the 2 and 3. Decided to get the 5 it's pretty decent right now I'll give you guys a quick screenshot of what it looks like.

    Me too for now & my disappointment is the lack updated display .... Second disappointment is:
    It looks to much like the IPhone..
    So, I'll wait for more cover colors. perhaps ceramic and camera updates.

    My 3t is a fine phone. I'll revisit this issue when the 5T is released.

    "nuff said!

    likewise, i will and have to hang on to my op3, though i do i wish i had bough 3t :/ still, not much of a differe bw op3 n 3t. and fewer improvements bw op3(t) and op5. yes i do wish i had waitrd a bit n gotten my hands on op5. yes i do love camera results for op5 (they are better than my op3). but i now i come think of it, I wouldn't spend more just to have 2gb additional ram and better camera, something more should have been there, anything cool. or maybe this all is just me trying to talk myself out of the sadness on missing this phone by not waiting[e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    You will never have wireless charging with a metal back. Stereo speakers is a waste as it won't be stereo. IP68 they should have done. SD card slot they should have done, maybe using a combo slot like on the OPX.

    There is nothing magical about an 18:9 ratio. If you want that, you just admit to being Samsung fan boy and buy yourself an S8. Be real. If you want bezel-less that's fine. Dictating the same ratio as Samsung? The OP5 was an iPhone copy, so you want them to copy Samsung next?

    OIS will take some space. You want battery, OIS, dual speakers and a head phone jack ... and you'll need a 6.5" phone to fit them all. Actually ... I may have a way, but it might not work with screen protectors and OnePlus would never do it.
