The 1+ reality distortion field

oneplus-5-vs-iphone-7-plus

Did your favorite media outlet fall for the 1+5 hype? Hats off for them to create such a perfect social media storm. Not so much for copying the iPhone design wholesale, signing up The Verge for peddling their "we are so special" story, and cheating on the benchmarks. Watch this:

There are much more important things than some irrelevant benchmark results or potential similarities with other existing smartphones:

Thumbs up OnePlus!

Lügen, klauen und betrügen zeugt von schlechtem Charakter. Mir ist das wichtig.

ich habe das Video noch nicht angesehen. Aber von der Firma sind wir doch nichts anderes gewohnt. Damals beim Oneplus3 war das doch schon mal.

Und klar sind die Ergebnisse des Benchmarks irrelevant in der Praxis, aber warum machen die das nochmal?

Interessantes Video, danke!

Leider immer hinter dieser komischen Youtube - nocookie URL die es auf Smartphone schwierig macht das Video vernünftig zu schauen und evtl dann noch zu subscriben :(

Shame on companies like that! I got rid of my Engadget and The Verge RSS feed a long time ago.
Buy that phone if you feel like it. It won't make a dent in the smartphone world.
Design is more than looks but not everybody understands that.
Thanks Volker, for bringing this topic up!

To give The Verge some credit, this is from their OnePlus 5 review: "It now looks like a OnePlus 3 that’s put on an iPhone 7 Plus costume [...] It’s more than a passing resemblance, and it frankly makes me uneasy."

"How do you feel about plagiarism? Your answer to this question will be essential to deciding how you feel about the OnePlus 5’s design."

Too bad every smartphone manufacturer seems to be afraid of colours, unlike the Lumias.

Apart from the things already mentioned here, the 5 is not much cheaper than other flagships. I think that was their major appeal when they started with the One.

ich bin dem hypezug mal aufgesprungen und habe spontan bestellt, danach dann kurz an der luft gewesen und mit ein bisschen abstand und den cheating Artikeln, nach 1Std meine order canceln wollen - das ging über deren webseit per button sehr einfach , einzig verschwand meine order nicht.... 2 Chats und einem unbearbeitetem ticket später heißt es vom Chat Mitarbeiter : ätschibätsch wir können da auch nichts machen und ich könnte ja den transport DL anrufen ??? oder die annahme verweigern.
klar kann ich das machen, will ich aber nicht.
jetzt guck ich mir das dingen dann halt doch mal in ruhe an, vielleicht kann die Kamera (welche den kaufgrund darstellte) mich ja live wieder besänftigen.
Support & Webseite sind mehr never und viel settle
