    No but i could put my S8 into a washing machine as it is waterproof.
    Also it's not a "fon" - it is a smartphone just like your Oneplus device.

    @sfomin , i just downloaded Prime Video. The screen is gorgeous while watching HDR-content! It's hust stunning.

    indeed. the screen is like no others. my wife was getting 6+ hrs SOT on hers as well when she had it.

    also, used my note 5 for 2 years (longest i held on to a phone) and any lag was negligible after 2 years! i dont know what people do to their phones...

    Downloading virus-infected porn will affect performance on any phone haha ;). I also don't know what people to do their phones but when i see someone with "Cleaner-apps" that clear RAM etc. on an Android-phone i could just smack it out of their hands!

    4GB of Ram with SD835, i doubt it will slow down like the older Samsungs. Software has much improved and the newer phones are more powerful. All those saying stuff are probably the ones that owned older Samsungs.

    I have a Nexus 9 tablet, it's stock Android and it has slowed down so much that it's fustrating to use now. I don't see any touchwiz on my tablet.

    Can I just say I haven't read every comment, but I can assure you I have a problem in that I get very bored with my phones quickly. I change my phones weekly it has taken me 8 years to realize technology is great and most of us don't use it to its full potential. I have owned iPhone 8 and Samsung 8 note and they were great but my One plus 5 does more than enough at a fraction of the price and the workmanship of this phone is superb.

    Aside from a prototype photo from September (that you can't really tell if it's the F5 or the R11S) there was no relevant chatter about this model.

    Agreed. I'm also gonna get S8 but waiting for prices to go down. I always knew bigger displays are the future. Didn't get the OP5 because of that.

    Another reason for the S8 is Substratum.

    Gonna stick with my 3t daily driver for now. But I don't complain cause OnePlus needs to be OnePlus and Samsung needs to be Samsung :D

    I just wish OnePlus also makes compact versions cause currently Nokia is dominating the Spare Phone sector.

    ZTE makes mini versions of their Flagships. Something I think OnePlus should consider.

    One word. In time where phones are similar for me two things matter. Price and customer service. In second one Oppo is lacking. The way they behave with 5t is not good.

    well...i hope so buddy.. because hardware like 4gb ram or the processor were never the issue. it was the ill designed OS Touchwiz which messed with the performance

    Well "Touchwiz" has greatly improved, time will tell.

    isn't a ram cleaning app default on Samsung devices now? it is BUILT-IN to the settings app.
