Results: OnePlus 6 pushes some fans away, wins over others
OnePlus’ brand-new flagship was just announced yesterday — shiny and beautiful in three different finishes, a modern-looking notch on its edge-to-edge display, glass back, and top-tier hardware. It looks sleek and is sure to run super-fast as OnePlus handsets have been known to do for the past few years.

But, of course, everyone has their own taste. Some don’t trust the up-and-coming company, others are sworn to despise The Notch whenever it appears on a phone. There are plenty of reasons to like the OnePlus 6, but we are sure some will have their reasons to dislike the new “flagship killer”.

We thought we'd ask you how you feel about it. 23% of the voters were previous OnePlus fans that were turned off by the OnePlus 6, but 25% are now interested in the company while they weren't before. A pretty even switch.

OnePlus 6: yay or nay?

Love it! (been a fan of OnePlus before)
I like it! (never cared for OnePlus before)
Nope... skip this one (been a fan of OnePlus before)
Not for me... (never cared for OnePlus before)

Copied HTC M9, created OnePlus 3/3T. Copied iPhone 7+, created OnePlus 5/5T Copied iPhone X/S9+, created OnePlus 6. 1+ broke up with originality after 1+2.

And the 3, 5 and 6 are the best phones it's ever made. The 3 and 3T were massive improvements over the M9. So is the 5 and 5T over the the iP7. Meanwhile the 2 was a smoking pile of hot garbage that should have never made it to market (we mostly have the 810 to thank for that, but OnePlus's handling of the chip was flawed as well).

Definitely wish it was more original. They are part of the same Conglomerate as Vivo/Oppo and would be interesting since they are the more internationally known entity if they finally pushed a flagship priced device that gets some stuff Vivo/Oppo usually get maybe release something like the Vivo Apex all screen concept as a device with higher price as a OnePlus 6X or something. I'm partially just annoyed only Samsung is avoiding the notch.

Only 2 things wrong with this device: 1) The price is more of a flagship than a "flagship killer" 2) It only works on fully GSM networks (no Verizon here in the US).
