Thanks for the clarification, apologise for the misleading info, probably was sleeping when reading. Wouldn't expect much from them anyway, just go with custom ROM. Just expect O will be the last OS update for OP3.

Your wife didn't complain why so complex? What is Lineage?
She does not need to know what she is using as long as she can use it for her needs. I maintain the phone for her, e.g., updating etc, so she just needs to use it, don't need to bother with anything else.

actually not many companies have managed to have a good software update cycle
For absolute best software updates go for iPhones absolutely no contest. 4 years+ support is insane. But then the huge Android OEMs like Samsung at least guarantee 2 Android version updates. Even S6 series are now getting Nougat. OP2 only got one (Lollipop to MM).

Yeah it's a strange decision made by OnePlus, as the Snapdragon 810 is able to handle Android 7 well.. Heck, even the Sony Xperia Z3+/Xperia Z5 series that's released in the same year with the same SoC has been updated to Android 7 already..
Sony is one of the more underrated Android OEMs that actually deliver fast Android updates and support for 2 years+. And their phones are reported to not slow down as much over the years unlike Samsung, and their skin is quite stock-like. Too bad their hardware design is super underwhelming with huge bezels and basically same block shape for many years or I would consider a Sony phone.

For me, 2 years is good enough - won't use any phone longer than that. We'll see if they screw it up again once OP5 is released.
True this, but OP2 didn't even receive 2 years worth of updates (I only count 1, since it only got one Android version update from Lollipop to MM). Quite unforgivable since they promised Nougat. They basically lied to their customers.

Yeah...no excuses. Probably because it sold like crap, they just didn't want to waste time updating it for a small user base. What matters now is how they deal with the OP3 crowd and the sales for OP5.

More or less confirmed the dual cam will be the same as R11 in OP5, i.e., fruit dual cam style, as suspected & expected.

"OnePlus, meanwhile, admitted to “rigging” benchmark results earlier this year to try and make its OnePlus 3 and 3T flagships appear more capable than they are."

Quoted from here.

If HTC makes it, maybe smaller screen but with huge bezels resulting in same phone size as xl?

Actually s8 smaller than G6 lol so if same form factor as S8 very good liao. But then again, the aspect ratio will be weird like the 2:1 on the G6.

Hahahah.....not practical lah. If the XL is small then the non-XL no reason to exist.

Unless they only release one model this cycle.
