Any idea if you're getting the new Moto G4plus??

 

 

Not likely to be soon. It's (currently) way too many dollars for what it is, and there's nothing differentiated about it.

The 16 gig version sells on Amazon India for NZ$282 Inc 14% sales tax so it shouldn't  be too bad here.  That said I'll be interested in your OnePlus 3 when it gets released..

I've ordered one from Oneplus website. I mistakenly chose it to go to Youshop Europe, they called me and said we can't ship a phone to New Zealand. They refused completely. I had the chance of returning back to sender or getting it sent to someone in Europe. Lucky my sister is in Budapest. So I have had to get it delivered to Budapest and then she will post it to me in New Zealand.

 

This has been going on for the past three weeks. Kinda over the phone now lol

Solid, better than expected - pushing 5 hours screen-on - and the dash charge is no joke.

I'm seriously considering replacing my tired S4 with one of these.  The main attraction is lack of bloatware the extra RAM.  General reviews seem positive, but can't help but think I should wait for the OnePlus 4.  I don't upgrade my phone that often, so 700 bucks is a big phone investment for me.

OnePlus 3 only recently came out, not sure why you would wait almost a year for (maybe) the next one

 

I have one currently, its by far the best android phone i have ever owned. Over a month of use now and there is still zero lag. The battery life is fantastic, the phone is just ultra fast. Only negative for me is the camera, its not that great.

 

The phone may seem pricey at $700, but the hardware and performance you are getting is half the price of other android equivalents.

I know it just came out.  But I'm not one to flock to the store to upgrade every time a new phone comes out.  I like to carefully pick and choose and I could technically nurse my S4 for another year if I wanted to.

 

It sounds like a great phone and great value for money compared to other options.  Zero lag sounds very attractive to me also!  My S4 is a pig!

i had to change it to Nova

 

I tried to keep everything stock but i was getting annoyed there were no notification badges on the stock launcher

 

I loved loved loved the shelf dock when you swipe left from the home screen, as thats where i kept the one or two widgets i use.

 

but i really needed notification badges.

 

i'm getting old, forgetting things.
