One glaring ommission

So I finally received my OP5 and couldn't wait to get it setup. I did the firmware and restored my apps and data to it. I was busy testing it out (so far so good) when I discovered something that was missing that no reviews have mentioned to date that I read and that is an always on mic.

This seemed like something all good phones would have today and I assumed it would have this being a near flagship phone.

As much as I love my Pixel, It's not paid off yet and won't be when the next iteration comes around in the fall. If I do opt for the bigger one this time, it'll set me back another $800-$1000 if I get the damage plan again. This is a lot of money to drop on a new phone each year and it seems there's a growing amount of people like me beginning to question these high prices.
The OnePlus 5 looks amazing so far and your article is much appreciated in that it actually reviews wh...
