OnePlus 503 Jul 2017
I’ve had a Nexus 6 for the last 2 years and was finally due for a phone upgrade. I went through a pretty good fiasco with Google store trying to purchase a Google Pixel XL earlier this year so I decided to wait for the One Plus 5 (release late June). I ordered it the first hour it was announced.
Features that I’m loving:
- 8 GB RAM
- 128 GB hard drive
- dash charge
- USB C
- OxygenOS (Android fork)
- headphone jack
- fingerprint authentication
- dual camera (allows for portrait mode) 16 MP
- front camera 16 MP
- Dual SIM support
More detailed specs can be found here
Features I’m adjusting to:
- no Google Phone app install allowed
- no Google Contacts app install allowed
I’ll adjust to those over time.
I did entertain the iPhone 7 for a bit also but am not a fan of iTunes. The iPhone integration with Google apps has gotten much better since the last time I looked though.
