Its time to upgrade the Z5 and I think this time around it will be a OnePlus
The 6 is a matter of weeks away from release (19th Mayish) and I will be interested to see its value.

The previous models seemed to be well received, any thoughts on the new one?

- Android 8.1 Oreo OS
- Dual-lens 20MP/16MP rear-facing camera with 'Super Slo Mo'
- Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Face Unlock
- Dash Charge support
- Waterproofing
- Alert Slider

Waterproof! Good one, finally. (Hopefully) I have a OP3, still very happy with it, but....this will be very tempting.

Without it being released, the consensus seems to be no so far

I've never used one. Does the OS feel odd or just like Android with different colours?

I have never had issues with the OS. I do like dark mode with green theme (highlights). It's close to stock with just a few extras

I am eagerly awaiting for this as well so I can finally say goodbye to my nexus 6P.

OOS is as close to dammit to "pure google" you wont notice any significant difference, there is some minor customization but overall it feels very "pure google"

How is its price likely to compare to the 5T here in NZ? Was planning on getting a 5T, so have to determine whether it’s worth paying much more. Waterproofing alone could be useful...

If it did it would be the perfect phone for me.
