If I had to guess, it's because they don't do bloat. You get a Samsung phone, and you can't remove most of it without rooting it. You get it through a carrier and you get even more bloatware!I their OS are trim as hell and my understanding is that there's almost nothing for bloat.
What Oneplus says is that they opened it and closed it 150 times a day for five years straight. Now, this might be Oneplus blowing smoke, but even half of that would be impressive, though I agree with LTT that they've had great QC in the past.
I recently 'upgraded' my phone from the OnePlus 3 to a Samsung S9. I was getting fed up with the shitty camera on the OnePlus 3, so I went with Samsung.
Turns out... the camera is the ONLY thing that is better on the S9. Just about everything else is better on my old OnePlus 3!
Now, I'm kinda regretting my 'upgrade' to the S9. I wouldn't mind switching again back to the OnePlus, but I'm worried about buying the 7 Pro now, only for them to release a 7T Pro in October...
Depends on what your previous experience is. My last phone was an OP3, and that fingerprint sensor was incredible. This one is considerably more sluggish when it works, and has quite a few more issues reading your finger. It's functional, though .
No wireless charging and no headphone jack make this meh. I use both very regularly. I'll stick with my S10, although I do honestly prefer the pop-up selfie camera rather than the hole-punch in my S10.
Seems like a decent upgrade to my bloatware-ridden, 2 hour screen on time, with a none-functioning pos fingerprint sensor Samsung Note 8.
Also really psyched about seeing designs without notches - hide that selfie camera or get rid of it completely if you can't, it's hideous otherwise.
Most of the reviews I've seen have specifically praised the battery life, though? Screen on time can vary a lot based on individual usage. Like, sometimes my phone gets four hours SOT, other times it barely breaks two.
The battery life thing isn't an all out win for the S10 - like, from the reviews I've seen, it's probably gonna be better than the 10e or base 10 - and the camera's competitive with even the Pixel's according to The Verge's review at least. As for the screen, well, it's supposed to be pretty fantastic when it comes to brightness and colour reproduction - I haven't seen someone do a direct comparison with the S10 tho - and with the added advantage of the 90hz refresh rate... I dunno, I think you could probably make an argument that the OnePlus is better than or equal to the S10 in all these areas. The S10's definitely gonna win for after sales support and the accessory ecosystem, though. Plus, it has wireless charging, a headphone jack, and an IP rating.
If I were in the market for a new phone right now, I'd probably get the base 7 - the Pro is both too big and too expensive for me - but I definitely see the appeal of this thing.
Their review might be wrong. In other reviews where the options are shown, you set it to either 60 or 90 only and it doesn’t vary. The Verge review says it will change refresh rate or resolution dynamically but only the resolution (currently) has an auto switch option.
Somebody knows the SAR of the device?
I have an oneplus 5t and I'm very happy about it, but the high SAR doesn't feel very confortable, even that I know that it's harmless... I would prefer a slightly less value.
Oh my goshhh. The specs are wonderful, on a oneplus 3t and looking for an upgrade. The hidden camera is a huge plus for quirkiness, but I'm looking for a keyboard. The F(x)tec Pro 1 calls but for a little more the spec difference is crazy ;_;
1+ should stop with this popup camera shit, nobody likes them
shame that 1+ keeps raising the prices of their new flagships, the 1st few 1+ are incredibly cheap compared to their competitors, not just cheaper
4 hours of screen time is terrible
Gcam fixes camera, variable refresh rate should help with battery. Wireless charging is the only "negative" but consider that wireless charging is a huge waste of energy and I personally do not want to add to additional Co2 emissions especially for just because inserting a cable is a little bit inconvenient. But, opinions and all that
Super tempted to trade in my 5T...battery life is a bummer but sounds like vrr could help if/when implemented. HATE there's no headphone jack, I have nice wired headphones I use every day. TBH that's my biggest holdup in upgrading right now.
How is Tmobile in general, I've been using straight talk but my phone broke, and while I could buy the phone outright and stay with them, I think i should just save the money and switch to Tmobile for this, I had an s7 edge so not like my phone was new, I just want a phone that will last me another 2 - 3 years.
