    Thank you Maarten! unfortunately the images are a bit boring but you have to work with the scenery you have, in these times ;)

    thank you! I -as a bit of a camera snob- was certainly impressed with the performance! it's not quite the same yet, but you can make some very nice shots with this nonetheless!

    Nice to hear an honest review.

    As I've complained about many times before, curved displays are not fit for purpose. You've mentioned the glare and distortion that I can't abide, and have no doubt suffered a multitude of false touches due to your palm hitting the edge of the screen.

    Please @Pete, do NOT make another curved-screen phone!

    The accidental touches are quite limited in my experience, but maybe because I already came from a similar screen so I know how to deal with it?
    But yeah the shadow and hue cast is certainly annoying and distracts from the otherwise excellent screen. With Samsung now going back to less curved edges, it feels like OnePlus is still a few years behind on that knowledge...

    Great review, loved unbiased writings there... one thing though, who keeps their SLR photos on phone :) Waiting for further review.

    I don't know if the 8 is as bad as the 7, but here is the thread I started last year after attending the launch event.

    I watch a ton of TV and movies on my commute every day (when I'm allowed to go to London!) and a curved screen would drive me absolutely potty.

    Yeah if you don't like curved screens I'm confident you won't like this one either. In harsh sunlight it can get annoying, although it's not as big of a problem indoors. I was kind of used to it at this point so I don't feel like it's a step back (it's just more of the same for me, haha), although I wouldn't mind if all the phone manufacturers would now just go back to flat(-ish) screens... But you know, it can always be worse: take a look at Huawei who decided to make the P40 pro curved on all four sides haha!

    Yes - form over function!

    Don't get me wrong, these are beautiful phones to look at. Just unsatisfactory to use!
