    Not me either.
    I don't know what it is about OnePlus that I can't get behind. I don't think it helps that their cameras are never up to par either. Compared to other flagships.

    I know it's budget friendly, so you can't expect the earth and something has to give, but I'm all about a decent camera these days.

    And as soon as you buy it, apparently you will be able to get the P beta.

    I think they get them within a month or two of the newest updates. Sony is apparently the best skinned OEM though.

    Once a company that used to make affordable high end flagship killers now they just follow the notch train and make the phone more fragile and expensive. Great job!

    The physical slider / switch on the side of the phone t between sound, vibrate, and DND I think. And I think ita the standard Android DND. But it's been a year since I've used a OnePlus phone, so things might have changed

    That’s what people buy, though.

    If it doesn’t have a programmable DND mode, I won’t buy it. I hated the alert slider on my old OP3.

    Well, Oneplus always made flagship smartphones at a lower price than other brands. Considering now that Samsung and Apple sell 1000€ flagship phones, 519€ seams pretty low in comparison. In my opinion, oneplus never stood for cheap phones but for "cheaper" phones.

    I'm assuming it does. But again, wait until it's announced :) But it may be similar to your OP3 unless Oxygen OS has changed. I never use programmable DND mode, I just used the slider and loved it!

    I wish every phone had a mute slider/button like the OP and iPhones :)

    I like the iPhone mute slider. I hated the OP3’s alert slider. Redditors say it works the same way on the OnePlus 5/5T. Looks like I may not buy the OP6.

    What's the difference between Oxygen OS and Stock Android?

    Just a few small tweaks, nothing ground breaking. But every one of those tweaks is really useful. And OP phones come 'clean', there really isn't any bloat on them what so ever.

    But you can get that with Moto too, right? So what are the tweaks that are selling points? I really think it will be hard for me not to have an auto DND mode on the OP6.

    it sounds like it may have auto DND settings but just doesn't have the option (visibly) to change it or activate it. I saw this workaround using Nova Launcher and it's activities settings

    YMMV on OP 6 but looks like it can be done.

    I think that Nokia are going to be another big rival in the not too distant future, stock Android, great build quality and decent specs for not much money. Interesting to see what the new device is like from OnePlus as the Nokia X/X6 launches on the same day and looks like a great alternative from the leaked pics and specs.

    Watching the live stream.
    Had a chuckle already when the guy said 'we find it's important not to jump on trends'.

    Lol. K.
