    Swap one plus 3 for Samsung galaxy S8 plus or wait for one plus 4. Can it match the competition?

    First it will be Oneplus 5 not 4. At the price of the S8 no thanks. Looks like a nice phone but fingerprint scanner is in an awful place. Even hearing it has reminders to tell you to wipe off the camera lens. Samsung reminded me a lot of HTC this time around. Great phone and screwed up one thing. Now the DeX sounds intriguing and I hope that we start seeing in other brands than just Samsung. For me I will be waiting a little longer.

    s8+ is like $800, while op4/5 will be $500 i would say since OnePlus keeps bumping the price.
    ama stick with op4/5, since it's way cheaper for me and also has good performance :D

    As previously mentioned yes there are a number of things that are strange with this phone, as mentioned the fingerprint scanner is in the weirdest of places. Just hoping it doesn't turn out to be another phone with 'Wasted Space' as Marques Brownlee describes

    I won't pay 500€ for a One+5, or else phone for that price. There's others manufactures on the market, offering good phones for less prices, no need 4k, bezels.... Nothing really new between the S7 and S8, and probably will be the same between One+3/T and One+5.

    I paid 400€ for my One+3, won't put +100€ on another phone giving same results as today...

    Above 400€, this is a ''none buy'' for me

    The OP3T is already $500 in the UK.
    By the time the OP5 turns up there will be very little difference in price in the UK.

    Hard to say because we can only speculate what the next OnePlus device will offer.

    However, I recommend the OnePlus 4 (or 5, whichever they call it) for the support alone. The OnePlus community is more accommodating, the phone will likely be more affordable, and you can root without voiding your warranty. There are also plenty of options of you run into any issues, whereas Samsung you would be screwed.

    This is all saying if the next OnePlus device isn't a bust.

    no, it's just way too much tax in it, my country is based on scam anyways so that's that, my cousin bought oppo for $300 from a chinese market and he had to pay $300 tax for it because the price is too low...

    Dude come on. Samsung sell Up to 100 million devices a year, every year.
    So either there are 100's of millions of people who are screwed or your just talking a load of ####
    Let's just see how affordable the next device ain't.
