OnePlus 6 specifications: More expensive, more swagger

There's nothing particularly exciting about the spec sheet of the OnePlus 6, and that's perhaps the point. While everyone fretted that OnePlus would position its latest phone as a high-cost flagship to contend with the Galaxy S9s and iPhone Xs of the world, the price has jumped only modestly, in conjunction with its overall feature set.

  • I Think it's still decent.
  • Band 71?
  • Indeed it does
  • Just carrying on where the 5T left off.
    Nothing special but good price.
    DxOmark score?
  • Not bad, price isn't terrible either. Now if only it had full Project Fi support.
  • If it had Verizon support, I'd hand over cash today.
  • Is a great phone, I don't know what people think they are going to see, the level of work done on these phones is high, the fact that we are no longer that excited simply means that things have gotten so good that we take engineering for granted. The reason we were always excited before was because this tech was still at its infancy, every iteration made a big difference. Think of the jump from 720p to 1080p, it was so visible compared from 1080p to 1440p and later 2160p, and yet technically the later improvements are bigger jumps than earlier, it's just that we can no longer see that big difference with our eyes.
  • If OnePlus "pushes the limits," they why only an X16 LTE Modem. Should be an X24 LTE or X50.
  • Looks nice. Does it have stereo speakers? Ambient Display still only work when you raise the phone or is it a proper always on display yet?
  • Not bad but still not buying the OnePlus 6, I have my heart set on a Pixel 2 XL as it has everything that I'll ever need. Although I like Oxygen OS though.
  • Needs wide angle camera. All phones need a wide angle camera ...
  • Doesn't look like nothing special to be honest. Especially if u have the 5t. I'm gonna stick with the Asus Zenfone 5z
