I thought the last OxygenOS update was suppose to fix the WiFi connectivity...I returned the OnePlus 5 back to the manufacturer because it was still not working properly. After having two phones not working correctly and having to return them back on MY DIME, I said enough is enough, give me my full refund and I will take my business else where. The phone was awesome but with no WiFi it's a moot point, I sure hope they fix this issue but I doubt it will be fixed with continued software updates. If anyone has good information on the WiFi issue please post.

8 GB Version
ZTE made a 6GB premium version of their Axon 7. I can't say enough great things about the phone. Hopefully they come out with a similar successor with 8GB like the One Plus 5. Giving customers choice is great.
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 may seem minor but for me it is very important. Without this you cannot activate the Google Assistant with your voice when the screen is off. This seemed like something all good phones would have today and I assumed it would have this being a near flagship phone. I also checked settings and even tried attaching the charger but when the screen is off it stops listening. Doing research online I confirmed that this feature is missing. Problem is that I d...

I got this phone during the "early" pre-sale event. So it was at my doorstep last Friday. My old Moto X 2013 had served me well but was long in the tooth. This was quite a bit of money for me to spend... but. I also bought some extra chargers and car charger for the 5volt 4amp charging capability. It's just stupid fast at charging!
I have had 4 System Updates from OnePlus since Friday.. That's commendable considering I didn't know anything was wrong. They list the "bug" fixes and the apps and phone features that were tweaked also. This phone is blazing fast. I am not a gamer so the 1080P screen was okay for me. In direct sunlight a bit dim. The phone is plain... so its not for the "image" snobs out there. I think I got... (continues)
I've almost always opted for the "flagship" branded phones, mainly due to their better performance, camera and battery life. With the phone industry maturing rapidly, I have really started considering some of the alternate brands now over my high priced choices so far. 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... (continues)
