OnePlus 3 Q&A: Ask us anything!

We know that some of you have probably received their OnePlus 3 devices already, but for all those other folks that are either still waiting for their units or are on the fence about whether to get one or not, we are kicking off one of our regular Q&A games. 

How does one play that game? 

Rather simple — you hit us with your best questions about the OnePlus 3 and then we try to answer as many questions as possible. Have in mind that we won't be going answering in full details about questions that will be largely explored in our upcoming review of the phone. Actually, we'd advise you to shoot us with such queries that are unlikely to be examined in our review.

Is the build quality of the OnePlus 3 better or worse in comparison to the build quality of the Xiaomi Mi5 (, which is worse than most current flagships from established manufacturers such as Samsung & Sony for example, because of the single lower quality aluminum alloy frame?

HAVE you updated the software to the newest version of oxygen? Any positive changes towards general usage?

16. Symon_Fleece

Is the oxygen OS is user freindly? What's the difference between this and stock android? Also, is that true that you can't use the whole 6gb ram of OP3? Last, Is the camera is capable of capturing RAW photos?

Can we use the type c headphones with the OP3 ? Will it provide the same experience as in Le Eco new phones?

With today's crop of OEMs battling for who makes the best QHD displays, do you think OnePlus made a wrong decision of going for 1080p for the 3rd straight year?

What is the warranty for the device? 12 or 24 months? I looked on their website but couldn't find anything. Does it have any waterproofing? Can I use it in mild rain? Does it have a normal headphone jack? Thanks!

To be fair please compare its screen between OP3 vs Galaxy A7,which one is better.Though both from same factory.(no to S7 because S7 screen is QHD)

When considering samsung amoled panel you should consider sub-pixel pattern too. Samsung's amoled FHD panel in 5.5" size is horrible compared to 5.5" IPS LCD panel in OnePlus One and Iphone 6SP.

Does it have OTG support? If you put a USB-C based pendrive in it, what happens?
