    Lol, there's nothing original about the OP3 so far, unless OP have kept the real design a water tight secret and the image going round is fake. The leaked image looks like anyone could have pieced it together in photoshop..

    Yep the mega/ merged thread is a certainty for sure.
    I watched a video with the voice recognition and it seems to work very well, play, stop, volume up/ down.
    It will be interesting to see how far reaching this function is.

    It's been certified at Tenaa, so that's pretty much it.
    Sorry there really are no surprises to come.

    Edit: To me it look like the OP2 with a metal body:confused:

    Eh, the camera didn't look too impressive to me. Samsung and LG still dominate the camera department.

    I don't seem to remember comparing them to LG or Samsung, if I did I would have said the Axon's camera was up there with the best.:rolleyes:

    They kinda look worse than the Moto X Pure sample shots tbh.

    ZTE has much better specs.
    OnePlus will lack in software experience, so the ZTE will not be worst in this case.
    Plus, OnePlus is letting me down with their awful support.

    The shots and videos I saw in a review were quick point and shoots, I'm sure we will see soon enough in a camera review what it can really do.
    One thing for sure it has the tools, supplied by Samsung.

    Oh well guess its time to move on from China. Glory days are over, everything's beginning to look the same on the surface now...

    I owned an Axon Lux for a few months. It had the potential to be beast of a phone but the bootloader was never unlocked. This was the highest end model but it was only available in China as the US and Europe got stripped down versions. The MiiFavour skin is terrible and took up 54% of the ram. Granted this wasn't in the US version but since it was stripped down i didnt want it. It also seems that the 128GB/6GB model will not make it to the US I guess this will be another Chinese exclusive. The OP3 will offer a better software experience and you will be able to root and install custom roms on it. Until ZTE unlocks the bootloader I would stay far away from them.

    The low light shots look really good! but the video seems to be refocusing all the time. Lets hope that was a test unit in the video and hopefully they fix it, but regardless I personally care much more about the low light shots than videos. This one is the low light test:

    I really hope the US gets the 6GB model, since TENAA has revealed that there's no 6GB oneplus 3 on top of corner cutting, this phone seems like the way to go.

    A bit fuzzy. I'm not too sold on some of these Chinese phones boasting high end specs. Whether and how they deliver those superior but cheap high end specs remains to be seen.

    For me the hottest device in 2016 so far (next to Zuk Z2). Lets see how the SW turns out to be. :)
