Poll: Do you think the OnePlus 3T is a worthy successor to the OnePlus 3?

iPhone 7 is to the 6S, but more of a hardware refresh with updated specs to make the phone more modern and comparable when compared to more recent flagships that have entered the market. We've posted a few articles outlining the specs of the 3T, but for the purpose of this poll, here are the main differences between the OnePlus 3 and the 3T -The OnePlus 3T isn't necessarily a direct successor to the OnePlus 3 like the
- Processor - Snapdragon 820 vs 821
- Storage - 64GB vs 64GB and 128GB
- Front-facing camera - 8MP vs 16MP
- Battery - 3000 mAh vs 3400 mAh
- Price - $399 vs $439 (for 64GB of storage)
As for the rest of the specs, everything else is pretty much the same between the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The display is still a 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, 6GB of RAM is present for multi-tasking, the 16MP camera on the back remains unchanged (aside from a new sapphire crystal lens cover), and the overall design of the phone remains unchanged as well - give for the new Gunmetal color option in place of Graphite that was introduced with the OnePlus 3.
It's easy to see that a few changes were made, but the majority of them are quite incremental. However, costing just $40 more than the OnePlus 3, the 3T packs a newer processor, hugely improved selfie camera, and a beefier battery. So, with all of that said, do you think the OnePlus 3 is worth it?
Do you think the OnePlus 3T is worth it?
Absolutely. The updated specs make an already great phone ever better!
It is if you have an older smartphone, but OnePlus 3 owners need not apply
Not at all. Just wait for the OnePlus 4
Nope. There are better options out there for less money
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 16 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, Quad-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 3400 mAh

Nah, I like to consider it as a soft-reboot... Sort of like iPhone 6 & 6S... G'Day!™

Well, if you pit it in iPhone perspective... A memory upgrade for the iPhone costs $100. The OnePlus 3T costs $80 to upgrade from the 64GB OnePlus 3, and it also adds a SoC bump, increased front camera performance, sapphire lens for the back plus improved video performance (likely the stabilization), as well as a 13% battery increase. I can't see why people don't think this is a decent refresh for this that didn't buy rhe original 3 or some other 2016 flagship.

actually the 6s had a much better cpu, gpu, extra RAM, improved front (1.2-5mp) and rear camera (8-12mp), 1080p-4k video, 3d touch display from the 6. Is this appropriate to compare the op3-op3+ upgrade in the same way?

While it's a minor upgrade and despite owning an OP 3 at the moment, I am upgrading to the 128GB version.

You must be one heck of a rich man, to consider to upgrade a phone you purchased 4-5 months earlier with only major change being increase in battery size by 400mah
