  • I have myself a 6T and compared to phones I've had previously such as the LG Stylo 3 Plus I find this phone to be leagues ahead of what I've experienced so far. Obviously not as strong as those Galaxys and Pixels but it certainly holds up

  • The OP6T is hands down the fastest and smoothest Android device I've ever used, camera is really good, using the ported Gcam for the night shots, that's the best of both worlds. Headphones Jack and wireless charging is not a deal breaker for me since I only use great quality wireless headphones and my device lasts me 2 days on heavy use, and charges ridiculously fast. So overall it's a superb device!

  • I own the 6t and really like it but I think Oneplus made a mistake with the in display finger print scanner. Three reasons - 1) It is slower and not as consistently accurate compared to dedicated fingerprint scanners. Even my OP 5 has a faster scanner. 2) Oneplus said that they had to sacrifice the headphone jack because they needed more space for the in-display sensor. That for me is absurd because they sacrificed a well loved feature for a gimmick. 3) Having fingerprint sensors on the back as opposed to the front just makes a lot of sense. The index finger naturally rests there and it's the most convenient spot. So in display or not - front facing scanners are just not that well positioned. These 3 reasons combined make the OP 6 a better rounded and more logically thought out device than the 6T, and that frankly should not be the case with a newer flagship. Great overall device but some flawed logic at play here for sure !

  • The face unlock is blazingly fast, practically instant. What I don't get is why everybody always mentions it's not as secure as some other device. Kind of like people always mention it doesn't have wireless charging (especially when the cable is much faster anyway) or rating IP rating. None of that really matters to most people. More interestingly, you can actually root the device to have stereo speakers. I wonder if OnePlus itself could make that possible without rooting. I didn't actually realize that the bottom speaker was on the wrong side as I tend to mute it all the time. I don't regret buying 6T, but it will take some time to get used to it. Rounded edges are actually bothering me more that the notch. Some games are not optimized yet and I lose content. Still, it's a pretty device with plenty of good features.

  • Water damage is not covered by warranty even with an IP rating so that little point is totally mute. Also, the 6t absolutely has water resistance, just not rated by IP since that costs more money. I take mine in the shower on the daily and it's totally fine, I also have friends with the OP6 who have been doing that for 6 months with zero issues. Watch Jerry Rig Everything's teardown of the 6 and 6t, it's quite sealed.

  • The phone doesn't have wireless charging due to the heat concerns of its usage. I imagine that they're working on a way to charge wirelessly faster than the Dash chargers do. Otherwise, this concern wouldn't really be acceptable.

  • Now, I'm not even mad of the headphone jack being gone. Everybody is doing it, I suppose that I need to adapt to this new thing. I got a wireless headphones, I got a phone with no headphone jack, everything seems alright. But what I dont agree with the removal of the headphone jack is how the company treats it. Some company did it to sell their own headphones and some say its the future, the lack of transparency is what bugs me.

  • Its not a midrange since it got a flagship processor... The phone is as i would describe: is like a toyota with shitty light weight seats and dont have any 2018 but only 1990's extra stuff but it has a higher class faster 2018 bmw motor and car design than the competition so it will be a better choice for racing and then you have iphones as rolls-royces that are that better... Thats how i see it..

  • Jonathan Morrison's camera comparison with the iPhone 10S Max, Pixel 3 XL and the Note 9 and he consistently praised it for sticking with them. Not only that, there were a handful of shots where it outperformed all three. Simply regurgitating the same stupid line every TRvisionr seems to say isn't cool, especially when it shows (and proves) you took no time to actually confirm this. And bitching about no wireless charging when it has the best charging technology in the world is absurd. If you'd rather take a millennia to charge your iPhone on a wireless charger, go right ahead.

  • I think it's out there that the phone does have some water resistance, just not an IP rating because that would've driven the cost up to an estimated $30 per unit. In fact, Matthew Moniz did a video where he submerged the 6T several times for durations ranging from 1 minute to 5 minutes, and it worked fine afterward.

  • (4:45) So... a phone that consistently outperforms almost every other phone out there (including the iPhones of the world) is considered a mid-ranger since it doesn't have wireless charging or an ip rating? Seriously? Neither of those options are worth an extra $400 to me. So to your logic, the Pixel 2XL at $949, which didn't have a headphone jack, didn't have wireless charging, didn't have expandable storage, and only had 4gb of ram is considered a flagship. Ah, got it.

  • You missed the entire point of the flagship killer concept... OnePlus 6T is not a flagship killer because its a "better" phone. Everyone knows that Samsung, Google and iPhone flagships will ultimately still be better spec'd. But it all comes down to spec to price ratio. Sure, Pixel 3, Note9/S9 and iPhone Xs are "better" when you look at the overall spec of the phone (although OnePlus beats them on some things). But those phones are near or even over the 1k price tag, while the OnePlus starts at mid 500s for similar specs. So while the overall score of the phone will obviously not surpass the overall score of a flagship, it comes close, and for half the price, you are essentially getting "more for less". The OnePlus is as good as any flagship minus the Camera, which is actually VERY GOOD, but it's not at the same level as the flagships, the display is just as good, same SD845, more storage and even more RAM... The only lacking feature of the OnePlus is the speaker. Yes no wireless charging, but they have DASH charging and include the brick.. I'll take dash charging over wireless charging anyday So this phone is spec'd amazing for the price. Apple gives you less and charges more (iPhone XR anyone?). So this is a flagship killer? I think so, mostly because of how its priced. I dont see why anyone would ever get a flagship for nearly or over 1k when you can get something just as good (if not better in some aspects) and pay half the price. Unless I guess you're into photography then yes, get something with a better camera. But for the average consumer, the OnePlus is the "better" phone.

    • No they wont like fx the s9 line is highend and phones like 6t and the note 9 are the premium flagships.. but if you areaaying that the 6t is a mid tier phone... Then the pixel 3 that also runs the same processor are a mid tier!can you hear how stupid that sounds?? If note 9 are a highend device then what is the premium handset??

  • Apple does not revolutionize the cellphone industry but it's hard to deny that they lead the industry since everything that they have in their new flagships such as notch or the lack of headphone jack is being followed by the rest of the competition
