    Dash charge is superb when compared to wireless charging,so am not seeing any advantage here for moving to a glass back. And with glass back even a single drop the chances for a cracked back is very very high.

    Until it's covered in fingerprints.

    The OnePlus X (the only OP phone so far with a glass back) is a wonderful (smaller) device, but this glass made it easier to slide over the table and to be dropped.
    I prefer a metal back, but: I always use flip covers with my OnePlusses, so the back is always hidden and does not really matter at all.

    This thread isn't really relevant. Your wants will not be considered for the next phone as it already exists. (perhaps for the 6t)

    Because you just have to see what the OPPO flagship is to see precisely what the next oneplus will look like.

    OPPO R11 = 5t, the OPPO r15 will be the OnePlus 6 just with the different processor for outside of the Chinese Market.

    Since they're owned by the same Chinese holding company, its obviously a lot cheaper and more profitable for Oneplus to just use existing designs, hardware, production methods by the holding company/other bigger and more established brands in China instead of spending any money making new designs etc.

    So if you want to see what the oneplus 6 looks like just Google the OPPO r15 and imagine it with a SD 845. That's all. It looks to be metal, I guess the most changes that will ever be made is just changing the colour and making it sandstone but the base oneplus 6 will most likely be that if the past experience from the 5,5t etc is to go by.

    well this poll is not official. You should have made a Google survey for this do that your responses are organized easily. The OnePlus 6 would be glass back.

    the amount of fingerprint and dirt is the same on both materials... if one is a disgusting pig, so will be the device... Just that one will stop being glossy.

    Glass has way more premium feel to it.

    the 1 and 2 had original designs, the 2 more than the 1. I like the design of the 2 a lot. I wish they kept on that line...

    Neither. Ceramic or Sandstone coating on top of metal.
