The OnePlus 6: do you like it?

The OnePlus 6: do you like it?
Well, it’s here, folks! OnePlus’ brand-new flagship, shiny and beautiful in three (somewhat) different colors. With top-notch hardware and an aggressive price-tag, it will surely draw a lot of smartphone fans’ attention.

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”.

So, what do you think about it? Will your cash be going towards a OnePlus phone this year, or are you going to skip this one?

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)

This phone was almost perfect just missing a few things...

Do I like it? Definitely not. Livable? Probably, given the fact that one can hide the notch with a black border, system-wide.

If only they made a version not taller than 145 mm...

I'm more annoyed by the width. S7 Edge is as big as I'm willing to go, and this is noticeably bigger.

I wish they would simply release 2 models, a standard Oneplus 6 and then a smaller version, as the standard one is quite large.

yeah, i think a 5 inch model will do well if they can swing it with no compromises

I think this is the first comment I’ve agreed with you on. OnePlus phones are big slabs once you get one in person

It's because i'm not commenting on Samsung, which you hate with a strange passion. I approach all companies the same, but your opinion of the companies that i'm commenting on changes. An open mind is crucial. Oneplus definitely are big slabs. I was gifted the S6 Edge as a birthday gift, but if didn't then i would have bought the OnePlus X. In hindsight i'm happy i didn't, as OnePlus didn't even remotely support that smartphone, did it even receive a single OS update?

Not a Galaxy S9 competitor. Next!

It's not, but it's not trying to beat it, it's just trying to be better bang for your buck, which i think it might be. I think you're going to have a hard time making a case for anysmartphone with flagship-grade specs, which are better bang for your buck than the Oneplus 6.

How's this phone different than all other flagships? It costs €100 less that's it.

I'll choose pixel over one plus any day.

What about a pool... Ugliest notched phone?

That'd serve no purpose on account that all notched phones are universally... Ugly. No, perish that though! Ugly is not the correct 'terminology'. Its more about asymmetry, to be precise. It's quite natural for a human mind to mistake asymmetry for ugliness or perhaps... Err... Ah yes, Grotesqueness! G'Day!

Is that like a poll?

I wish Cyanogen was still a thing, a thing that OnePlus still used. I know why they went away, I just miss the heyday of flashing dev releases every day.

You still have Lineage continuing the CyanogenMod work.

I'll have to buy my next phone with a bootloader I can unlock. I made the mistake of getting my current S8 from Verizon.

Man I’d choose the P20 Pro or S9+ over this. Pixel 2 XL as honorable mention.

This and the Zenfone 5Z should fight to the death.

Wish it was $50 cheaper. Everything else is looking good

I don't know yet, I still don't like the notch but you can at least hide it, somewhat. We'll see what reviews say and of course the all important user feedback.

Too big, just like 99% of the flagships post 2015

Notch (at least can be hidden), Glass back (increases cost, decreases reliability), tiny battery are the issues... Rest is OK...

Notch = FAIL 1080p screen = mid-ranger

I like that OIS is back.

I still do not see the usefulness of taking up part of the screen with a notch. Just waiting for my Razer phone to arrive so I can drop the Note 8.
