Interesting that you mentioned lack of treble support but didn't mention its lack of widevine support. No HD streaming on Netflix, Amazon, vudu, or similar services. For a 2018 phone not to even support 720p is ridiculous.
On none of the mobile phones I've had since 1995 did I ever need them to be water resistant. Why is that a big deal for you? You can't dry your hands before picking it up? Or you can't resist taking a shower with it? Or you're so clumsy you've dropped every single phone you've had in your pool? What is it??? ;)
3:55 is every Android user & ex-Apple convert.. 😅😂 That jack is very important.. Just ordered this.. Has Oreo been released for it yet..? And is it worth upgrading the OS as soon as I get it, or waiting until the slowness u mentioned is fixed..? - @Acharich
Thanks for the review. My issue is that I often get kicked out of the keyboard because I might have slightly touched the lower bar with the home button. It's weird to me because I have ndroids phones since 2009.
Does anyone else have similar issues?
I see that you have transparent Google search widget, is it from some custom application like zopper or is it the standard?
Also is there a way to make navigation bar transparent during an open application?
How do you turn the screen brightness to the max?! have you seen how uncomfortably bright this thing gets? it can give you a tan! I rarely ever go past the 35% mark on the brightens slider.
Also, there is a sort of jelly scrolling if you're using the phone at minimum brightness at night, at least my unit, but it's not bad and I'd rather have it than have a higher brightness level in bed!
5:28 the OnePlus X did have SD card support, it had a hybrid sim/SD card tray. But their SD card support was disastrously bad. Maybe it was improved with software updates but they showed they didn't have the competence for proper SD card support.
So basically you really have zero negatives on the phone... Personally I know so because I ditched my Pixel 2 XL and finally replaced my trusted Pixel XL by the amazing OnePlus5T... other than camera that is not as good as Pixel (yet more than acceptable), this phone has nothing negative about it... Waterproofing, give me a break...Phone design is boring and slippery...who does not put a case on it anyway? Are there any (especially the stupid all glass phones) that are not slippery these days? Quick updates on Android, well let me tell you that I have had all the Nexus devices as well as Pixel (I also have a Pixel 2) and was also on Android Beta program and these new versions always brought crap that rendered the phones too frustrating to use, so for me, I would rather have a perfected Android experience with the extra amazing tweaks added to Oxygen, than having the latest that offers a promise, but doesn't work half the time...
I was considering getting a 5T, but the lack of treble support was a deal-breaker. IMO it would be stupid to buy an android phone without treble right now. You're just asking to have support dropped as soon as they have treble phones (though OP may be an exception).
Yeah good job and a good phone... But .. Right now there are some great deals Gal s8 and the Pixel to name a few.. So as the One+ keeps increasing the price it becomes less attractive as it's missing some of the Features the other phones have SD card, waterproof , cameras , treble supports for fast software updates, widevine level 1 support to watch HD video using Netflix, Google movies and so on ....that's not the 5t isn't a good phone it's just as the price Creeks up it becomes more of a just pay a little bit more and get a full-featured flagship phone.
gangstaBJK ... There's a bunch of Christmas deals if you look...Pixel 2 128 gb is $649 on Verzion right now... What is the Op5t $549... Have you checked out Amazon on the Gal s8... This was just a quick look...a little effort and you can save... The iPhone x price is crazy ...
Umbro Khan but the s8 is shit. Samsung phones have tons of bloatware and software bugs. They lag and become unusable after time. I've had the note 4, note, and s7 and they all suck and I'll never ever buy a Samsung phone again
my problem with this phone is the price. it's not cheap anymore. if you buy the phone out right , I can see that 300 bucks difference justifying your purchase decision. but most people finance their phones. plus a lot of the flagships are on sale at the moment.
