Everyone should just go get a OnePlus 3. Pretty darn good phone, and the price is unbelievable.

I see the price as being about $100-200 less than an iPhone, but with a worse screen, slower processor, worst camera, and, of course, without the ability to take 9 years of paid content with me.  No thanks.

Larger screen, equal resolution, better camera. Probably equally impressive processors... I don't know the SnapDragon 820 vs the A10 Fusion. Double the RAM means the processor has more to work with on the OnePlus 3 though.

And that's if you're getting a top-of-the-line iPhone.

Also, the price is $570 cheaper for the OnePlus 3.

Compare to a regular iPhone 7...

Larger screen, better resolution, better camera, significantly better battery, triple the RAM.

And it's $450 cheaper there.

And the battery on the the thing is ridiculously good. 30 minutes on it's Dash Charge and I've got enough power for 3 days. I find my battery dying simply because I forget that I have to charge the thing at all anymore.

Why would you compare the most expensive price of the iPhone to the cheapest price of the OnePlus (meaning, the MSRP which I cannot find anyone charging for it...retailers seem to be charging $20-150 more for the MSRP.  So, again, for very little more money you get a ton more quality plus, for people already using the iPhone, they get to keep everything.  This is a no-brainer.

I got mine for $399 direct from OnePlus.

I'm using the prices quoted from a neutral site.

The quality argument is opinion. "Ton more quality" is ridiculous, though.

I don't hate Apple products, but the OnePlus 3 was a no brainer for me.

So you'd give to the data mining bastards at Google instead?

Easier to max out your privacy settings on Android etc than Apple...they seem to automatically want you to use their poxy icloud for storage and they make it difficult to avoid it....also they want to tie you into their shitty products and charge you more for the privilege...no thanks.

Of course, Google are data mining bastards too, but they don't try to ensnare you in the death grip that Apple does.

Instead of using prices from a neutral site, why not use actual prices?  You know, ones that make sense?  Also, you might want to go to a real site and see how the specs compare.  CNET is a good one.

I just went to, and I don't have an edit button for it?

My edit button seems to disappear after about 24 hours. Let me get some screenshots.

I've always assumed this was something that was taken away from me in 2013, along with the Chat Room feature and other stuff. I'm not complaining, this is the first time it's been there when I've wanted to actually edit something.

Yeah, the edit button is only temporary.  It's been that way as long as I can remember.  In a case like this though you can message a moderator and ask them to remove the link.

Yeah, wasn't a fan of it at first, but am now used to it. Makes much more sense, actually, if you use Touch ID.

I like iOS a lot. But I love android too because it gives you way more power and customization. I also like iOS because of how simple it is.
