    Not only that, the screen seems to be the same mediocre pentile one used on the OP3 and 3T. On top of that, the camera still makes awful videos and lacks manual controls for videos, the software is the same as the 3 and 3T, the speaker is the same, the software is the same, and so on. It's basically the 3T with marginally better processor, and a huge bump in price.

    Not worth it imo.

    1080 is ok only if you listen with music with a $5 headphone. It is the same thing. Some people feel $5 headphone is the same as $50 or $500 kind, some don't.

    I have the 3T and just bought the 5, Being as I got it early I can always sell it if I don't find it to be an upgrade. I did it mostly for the camera. I have a 1.5yr old and hoping that it will be better at taking pictures of her when she running around.

    At least not insulting other people. I have seen higher res displays and I don't need them. It's a nice gimmick, but not necessary.

    Personally I'd have gone for a Samsung or HTC if I just wanted a decent camera on my smartphone. Not sure what OP are now offering if it's not fantastic value for money?

    So you rather have less performance, diminished battery life and a price bump for nothing?

    Btw I know the difference between 5 € and 500 € headphones. fullHD would more be the difference of 300 € and 500 €, whereas some 300€ headphones are better than the more expensive options!

    401ppi is already a more than satisfying quality and every pixel more is just a waste of money

    idc what optimization they make. regressing in MAH per hour to make anorexic phones is not viable. it's as disappointing to look at as the op2.
    pass!

    For VR, the Sony only uses 4K when you request it.

    Guys, we need and expect much from OnePlus 5, yes. But we also need to know quality comes with a cost. S8 should not be compared with OP5, not on design and the screen resolution. let's talk about the camera, the performance swift...then we can come close to the other Flagships.

    One day OnePlus will make a better phone, but be ready to pay the price that takes up to Apple and Samsung.

    Yeah that's a good deal. Wish my son's iPhone wasn't bent, I'd trade that in like yesterday. Hope they do the same thing when the Note 8 comes out because I'd trade my note 5 in no questions asked.

    there's zero benefit to a 2k screen except for VR which no one uses unless it's an HTC Vive which no one owns. and no, you can't see the pixels on a 1080p screen during normal use. stop looking for the pixels while your phone is at an unusable distance.

    I'm confused, because I haven't said it. Maybe a quotation would have been better. Is "Schmucks" an insulting word? I'm a non-native speaker, sorry.
