    there is no studies about 5G yet and the one about 3G/4G already proven that it damage the blood brain, especially for young kids.

    the rest is all a problem of politics that are lobbying by telecom associations etc...

    The video oneplus made to introduce 5G must be one of the most ridiculous things the company has ever created!!
    Comparing the morse code, bell's invention, first mobiles, that actually changed people's lives,
    With the transition from 4G to 5G, which will change virtually NOTHING, it's just a higher band, faster internet, not anything we haven't seen before.
    They are setting the bar so high, they are bound to disappoint and all that out of greedy purposes, in a desperate effort to convince some fools to buy a newer, more expensive phone. They are losing credibility here, major blow in my books...

    Well shit, nobody ever expected a technology company to over-promise on an exiting new technology.

    Please tell us, how were you so far ahead of the curve that you could see this happening?

    I have experienced the transition from landlines to mobiles, then to gprs, smartphones, 3g, 4g.
    The experience of these transitions made me grew wiser and gave me perspective of what matters and what's not.
    Also i have an extended inside view of the pricing policies of my country's GSM networks, in the past 13years, as far as mobile data consumption is concerned.
    In my opinion the transition of going from 4g to 5g, will not be as fundamental as the transition from not having the ability to send a message, till the day we did. Not as fundamental comparing to the first day we could make a phonecall through a landline, in a remote island, till the day we could. Not as fundamental, as the day phones became mobiles and could help you keep in touch with loved ones anywhere you stand.
    Not as fundamental as having access to the internet and unlimited info, anytime, anywhere.
    It is a disgrace to compare those jumps of human evolution, as i consider them, to the baby step, of going from 4g to 5g, just to help you promote the sales of one mobile!

    Good day,

    Based on what I read and heard, ALL the hardcore FANBOYS/FANGIRLS will NOT be honest & transparent about the problems they have, ever.

    Because psychologically, they have to put in their mind that their hard money and the choice they made was put in the right spot (even it's not).

    We have 2 OnePlus 6T and in the process of being swap/trade-in for S10 & S10 Plus.

    * Camera is BLURRY & WASHED OUT (so we end up installing the Google Pixel 3 XL APK and it's much better, clearer & sharper)
    * Battery life is shorter now (especially after 9.0.3 update for T-Mobile version)
    * The call quality is not as clear & loud, like our NOTE 9 & S7 EDGE
    * SOFTWARE UPDATE for the T-Mobile version is very late, as OnePlus is not giving the software to T-Mobile in a faster fashion (OnePlus people already said that they still not given the new software update to T-Mobile)
    * Bluetooth is constantly dropping since last update
    * Etc........(means many more problems)

    For the people who are reading this: "YES, we reported it (sent multiple bug report), then called the customer service/technical support that's in the Philippines for 8 times, then Factory Reset, clear this and that, uninstall this and that, etc.... with the SAME results.

    The ONLY REASONS that many people who are using T-Mobile (USA) bought it was (this is based on ALL forums, sales agents in the stores, social network, etc.....:):
    * It's CHEAP
    * Futuristic In Display fingerprint
    * People heard the faster software updates (but we are duped, because it isn't)
    * The $300 trade-in
    * And support the underdog mantra

    Those are the FACTS but to OnePlus (they don't care) & to the FANBOYS/FANGIRLS, they will sweep it under the rug & talk about 5G now.

    Have a great day to y'all
