Why would anyone want to copythe notch that the iphone x has? Seems kinda dumb to me.
everydayfun (6 days ago)
one plus 6 phone killer huh wait for note 9 to defeat one plus 6 on speed performance then we will see how those one plus fans cringe just cause it defeated note 8 and S9+ with 6 gb ram note 9 will be the new flagship killer phone for the new one plus and the new iPhone's released if note 9 can't defeat the new iPhone's released then S10,S10+ and galaxy x will defeat the new iPhone's in terms of speed honestly I'll only trust Samsung cause they have no notch on their phones and they still kept their headphone jack.

If oneplus is gonna copy everything apple is gonna do could they at the very least make a 4.8" phone with an 18:9 display? Too many phones are huge now a days

the Hardware is not excelent as you say , I like very much my OnePlus6 but...Sound Quality of Speaker is very bad:/ no bass at all.And yeah the camera, I bought 1+6 for this 4K60fps feature but Focus-Hunting during recording of Video is annoying, I dont know, Maybe they can fix this through updates

Is stereo speaker possible with an ota update? Just curious hardware vs software
Sokar599 (12 days ago)
Wireless charging is just stupid. You waste a ton of energy, something we should cherish, and for what. Just so you don't have to plug on a cable? How lazy can you get.

Why keep using the phrase"perfect" no phone out there is perfect
tarno89 (13 days ago)
As you said. Wireless charging and stereo speakers are not a deal breaker. These features are not so important in my opinion. Dash charge is still the best in the world and I personally use headphones and external speaker. By the way, their bullets headphones sound fantastic.

Should I get this or the google pixel 2 xl? Looking for a phone that has good battery life, a clean android experience and reliable software updates (for longevity). Also: I am a student, so: is the google pixel 2 xl worth spending more money on? Any women who use this phone?

What people fail to realize is that... Wireless Charging, Stereo Speakers, Water and Dust Cert., QHD Display, etc.... costs money. If they were to incorporate most of these (or all) into the OP6 the phone could easily cost upwards of $650-$700. The company knows exactly where they can cut corners and keep prices true to their brand. You can't expect a phone to stay in the same price range forever. With inflation and competition packing the best of the best in their products but also charging a hefty (ridiculous imo) dollar amount. If you think about how much more you're getting for ONLY $30 extra it is really an amazing deal.

Hi. I've been asking this in oneplus 6 forums but it seems no one can give me the answer. So here it is: I'm a 3T user and I must say I'm very much happy about my phone that I didn't even bother buying OnePlus 5/5T. But this time, I am considering buying OP6. My ONLY concern is the camera. Why does OnePlus have to make a camera that has a higher resolution sensor, same aperture size as the main camera and only use it for portrait mode? I mean, isn't it just a waste of resources? Even with my 3T, I can do bokeh effect using this particular "google camera app". No wide angle, no crisp monochrome, no telephoto??? Just portait mode for the secondary camera? I hope you understand that many of phone manufacturers uses low pixel secondary cameras if it is just for portrait mode. This is not a hate comment but I really need enlightenment as to why so much resources is used for such a not-so-necessary feature? If would have made the cost lower and also the selling price as well. ARE THEY TRYING TO DECEIVE US? It feels like a complete downgrade."

It can never be a flagship or its killer. Its stuck in the mid-range from start till now.

Flames Tornado (21 days ago)
if they atleast enable the speaker in the notch to work as another speaker it will be awesome even if it wasn't really stereo speakers. but it will make it much better for sure. if not maybe root users make it but you know not everyone will try rooting a phone and for a new phone its more unlikely.

i'm debating between this and zenfone 5z which comes next month. hmm... hmmm...

No way for notch
monkeytown (22 days ago)
the notch looks pretty good on this one! saw some people talking about the xiaomi mi 8 being the "better oneplus 6" but their take on the notch is ugly as crap. liking this phone pretty much so far. the one thing i will never be able to understand is why so many people want the wireless charging. i´d take a "plug-in-and-still-use-it" over a "put-down-on-charging-pad" solution any day.

Can you do a microphone test on a loud environment? Like simulating a concert? I had the One and the 3t and the Mic makes cracking noise when is loud.
TheChameleon2008 (22 days ago)
it got nice specs but the camera's aint that great... no stereo speakers.... no sd card... no wireless charging... no water proofing.... so to me its not worth the money. I think a high end phone should have 1 point where they accelerate on other brands and it seems that oneplus doesn't have any
kornikof (22 days ago)
Oneplus 6 it's very good phone for the price. I believe! Now if you add a micro sd slot, a dual speaker set up, an IP68 rating and a wireless charging you will have a Samsung galaxy s9 plus, wich cost $840, so this phone cost $250 to $350 less and has more then a midrange phone plus the essential for phone a top shelf phones. You can leave with one speaker, phone charger much faster then Samsung phone, ip68.. 85% of the owners are still scare to trow it in the water even been waterproof certified, only thing for me is the micro sd slot, which is much convenient knowing that oneplus port are still 2.0 and not 3.1 means take forever upload all your content from a computer.

Christopher Cristobal (22 days ago)
Now that's some good news, thanks for the info Joe
joemann7971 (22 days ago)
Christopher Cristobal the one plus 6 is a world phone. Since telcel is GSM carrier, it should be compatible. Looks like you should have also have lte support as well since the frequencies telcel uses are supported by the one plus.6.
Christopher Cristobal (22 days ago)
joemann7971 oh thank you good sir, but what if i live in Mexico and i use a Mexican carrier like TELCEL?
joemann7971 (22 days ago)
Yes. They are unlocked. Dual Sim, but they only support GSM networks. So, if you're in the states, it doesn't support Verizon or Sprint. No CDMA whatsoever.
Red Hood (22 days ago)

Ledenk mems (23 days ago)
Its by no means a killer flagship and not even the 6T will be if it takes the same route. Bad screen, no wireless charging, no waterproofing, notch... And for $550. Im highly dissapointed.
Ledenk mems (19 days ago)
Michał L Im a kid? First of all, having phones with 2k screens for the last 3 years, I see a clear difference. Even a 2014 Galaxy S5 has a better screen and that shouldnt happen at that price point. Also, I much rather trust a phone thatd certified to last 30 min underwater than a phone thats splash resistant. And fast charging? Every phone nowadays has that. But wireless charging is important to some people. I rather leave my phone charging on my desk while working or on my night table when sleeping than having to look for a cable to plug it in. Its very hanfy for some people and you can get one for $10-15 on Amazon. Im not saying its a bad phone. Im just saying there sre better ones out there and that it was a large disappointment for me personally, because for the price I would have hoped they would have done more. Its not much of an upgrade over the 5T which already lacked many of these features. Soooo yeah. This sint really a killer flagship. Performance isnt everything and nowadays you cant reslly tell the perfomance difference between flagships.
Michał L (19 days ago)
The screen is great and 1080p is a smart and great choice. 4K display just drains more battery and you cant see the difference. They checked that on a blind test, actually. People can't see the difference so what's the point? There's none. Wireless charging again it's a gimmick, not a real feature. Charges way slower, charger costs extra. It's a con, how can anyone consider it a feature... I'll take dash charge instead, any time. OP6 has been already opened on youtube and has the same securities for water resistance as IP67/IP68 rated flagships. They tested it can stay drowned for 2-5 minutes without any damage, that's more than enough. Once more it's not a feature. Why would be a phone full water-resistant? What's the point? A phone can get splashed, can be dropped into the glass, pool or whatever, you instantly get it out and it'll work just fine, that's what OnePlus offers and that's what matters, no need for any IP ratings. Not to mention e.g. Samsung IP rating is bullshit since warranty doesn't respect drowning your phone haha. Btw, there's no such thing as waterproof phone, phones can be water-resistant. You don't even know that but of course has lots to say about it... so common :) Another kid falling for list of useless features.

Aakash Sharma (19 days ago)
Michał L I used OnePlus 3, 3T, OnePlus 5 - got used to of front fingerprint scanner.
Michał L (19 days ago)
The placement of fingerprint scanner is great. I don't understand why people would want it be under display? When you reach for your phone, you hold it on the back and your finger naturally lands on the scanner. That's the ultimate position for it. I don't have to think about unlocking at all because my finger does it intuitively. That'd be the worst idea to move the scanner to the front.
