Would you consider getting the OnePlus 6 over the Pixel 2?

Earlier this week, I wrote an editorial titled The OnePlus 6 is now my go-to phone instead of the Pixel 2. In that piece, I explained how the OnePlus 6's software features, Dash Charge system, alert slider, and more make it a better fit for me than Google's flagship.

Now, I'd love to hear from you — Would you consider getting the OnePlus 6 over the Pixel 2? Why or why not?
