Did you get your ticket for the bandwagon? I remember saying the 6T was the best phone but you kept saying otherwise indirectly.

Lmao the jealousy that’s dripping off of you like sweat in 102 degree temperatures because I purchased a OnePlus 7 Pro, while you couldn’t even get a OnePlus 6T that you yelled at the top of your lungs was the best phone ever, until you jumped ship when the Pixel 3A was launched is duly noted. It hurts you that much that I choose to support what I favor, as opposed to making empty statements about it like you do? Real fans support what they favor, like I did by purchasing a OnePlus 7 Pro. You bash Nokia branded smartphones constantly and yet you claim to own one, so dial down the hypocrisy.

Lol, please don't flatter yourself. Unlike you, I have nothing to prove. It's hilarious watching you try to justify your supposed device purchases. You're welcome btw. I jumped ship to the 3A because it was an affordable device that does everything that I need it to do. Why waste money on an overpriced flagship that will be irrelevant in several months? You first. You're the one who is in hypocrisy overdrive.

Lmao no need to flatter myself when you do it for me. And you’re correct: You have nothing. Definitely not a OnePlus device lmao. It’s so hilarious watching you get triggered over what I choose to buy. Pretty sure now you’ll feel motivated now to try and get one. You’re welcome. You jumped ship because you flip flop more than a fish out of water. And are you saying that the OnePlus 7 Pro is an “overpriced flagship that will be irrelevant in several months”? Lmao now you’re attacking OnePlus because I own a OnePlus 7 Pro, just like I knew you would. Thanks for proving me right, as usual. Pot, meet kettle.

Make the screen brighter. That's the only thing I hate about my 6t.
