Got the OnePlus 6T, coming over from iOS. The perfomance of the phone blows me away. I bought mine from PB and the package contained a fast charger as well as the one in the box. I'm a little mixed on the camera though. it seems to have issues maintaining focus. Other than that, the phone is great!





Hi! I'm TheoM, but you know that already. I run Linux mirrors in NZ together with 2degrees. Like a mirror added? PM me!

I sold my pixel 3 XL that I was using for work for a 6T, everything on the 6T except for the camera is superior imo, I was a bit apprehensive with swap but it turned out to be the best decision. 6T for work and XS Max for personal, best of both worlds.

Been using my new 6T for a few days now, so far so good, no battery drain issues.

Have set navigation to the iPhone-like gesture so can use the full real estate of the screen.

Still getting used to no LED notification and relying on the lockscreen display.

Only small issue I noticed is that I have set it to auto screen brightness but the screen always seem to very dim no matter under what lighting conditions.

So far had been getting 5 to 6 hours of SOT after each charge.

Isn’t Pie’s adaptive brightness supposed to learn from how the user adjusts screen brightness in particular circumstances?

But, interestingly, this is the same problem I had for the first couple of months with my 6, and it was a well-reported issue at the time - I ended up running a separate app to manage auto brightness. An updated OS release fixed the issue and I was able to go back to letting the device manage it.

i've joined the OnePlus community forum so will have a troll through there and see if this is an issue affecting others.

I got my 6T over the weekend from PBTech (8GB RAM)

 

Got the NZ fast charger with it

 

And seriously impressed with the performance of the phone

 

The camera on 6T - coming from S7 edge - I think the camera on 6T is really good. S9+ could have a better camera maybe but so far I am happy with the photos quality as well

 

Getting used to gestures to get a full screen experience - this takes a while to get used to

 

Only minor complain is the apps that do a finger print for going past security - banking, trade me, etc.. the finger print overlayed the app login - so wasnt very comfortable with that - but I am guessing just a matter of time before I get used to it
