    OP3 for me. Closer to stock OS, probably better custom rom and software support. And I'm ashamed to say this, but it looks much nicer.

    OP3 first ...AND then the Zenfone 3 Deluxe for me...:D

    From engadget @ http://www.engadget.com/2016/05/30/asus-zenfone-3-looks-and-feels-twice-its-price:
    "...the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is powered by a Snapdragon 820 so it also does Cat 13 LTE with tri-band carrier aggregation (150 Mbps uplink), USB 3.0 connectivity and Quick Charge 3.0. It also has a sharper camera; in fact, it's the first smartphone to use Sony's 23-megapixel IMX318 sensor, and apart from the added 4K video recording support plus the fact that the super resolution mode has been bumped up to 92 megapixels, the feature set is otherwise identical to that on the ZenFone 3. Starting at $499, you get 6GB of RAM plus 64GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage, and there'll be a 256GB variant arriving later."

    I honestly believe they are going to surprise us and basically offer us multiple models in OnePlus 3 like the Zenfone series

    I'm really hoping for our sakes at least lol really want to see that 6GB Snapdragon 820 in all its glory

    OP3 for price, specs and I've to to terms with the design. Axon 7 amazing specs no doubt, price is more than I want to spend. Deluxe also too expensive and 5.7" is more than I'd like. I currently own the Zenfone 2 though!

    How much are you willing to pay for a 6GB in US price?

    6GB, 8GB, or 12GB; does it even matter anymore? After all, it is a task to make ANY of my Android based devices (tablets, GoogleTV's, smartphones) use more than 2.2GB RAM under load. Unlike a Windows based OS, good coding on a Linux core should never be memory hungry. Make the RAM DDR4 and I would be happy with 4GB for the next few years.

    Zenfone is too expensive, axon looks like a pile of shit (those black bars... just... why?), so I guess that leaves the op3, in all of its htc-samsung hybrid glory.

    Hands-on reviews will make a big difference on what the best devices will be... There have been multiple devices that come out with alot of hype, but then are disappointing when reviews come in.

    Zenfone 3 Ultra has DTS Headphone:X :eek:
    It's freaking amazing audio via earphones....

    But it's too big, 6.8" is litterally too big.

    Why the Deluxe version has no Headphone:X?!
    (if only it was a matter of software codecs, the modding could do the trick)

    The Zenfone 3 Deluxe/Ultra camera sensor SONY Exmor RS IMX318

    It seems like after the Axon 7 I fell in love with this Zenfone Deluxe!
    (but the Headphone:X of the Ultra...damn it! I want it!)
    I like more the design of the Zenfone over the Axon 7 and OnePlus 3.

    But where is the OnePlus 3 in all of this?
    My fear is that, apart from the horrible design (IMO), the OP3 will not push at all the audio department.
    I hope to be completely wrong, since the presentation is still far, but, considering few people cared about quaility audio, answering to their "weekly questions about the ideal smartphone", I guess I have to look to another device :(
    The camera department feels good if the Omnivision is the sensor, at least on the chart it looks good.

    Clearly for me, a price over 400€ is out of range. I won't spend that much for a mobile phone.
    Just in case I have to buy an Axon 7 or a Zenfone 3 Deluxe (more likely) over the OnePlus 3, I'm going to wait the winter, the Christmas holidays, hoping the price will drop fast.

    I need full reviews of: camera/audio before deciding what to buy.
    On the software side, ZenUI looks good and OxigenOS has potential!

    the loudspeaker hardware is same for both of them, but ultra has got 2 speakers instead of one. and , I guess, the hardware of headphones jack would be slightly different ,ultra being the better.

    I don't like admitting to this, but I filled in their weekly question 5 times with high fidellity dual stereo speakers, a quality DAC, and a quality amp. The fact that they never mentioned audio in the captchas for the loop or hinted at audio at all is disappointing though.
