Due to issues with the go to first thread post not working we need to renew threads at 100 pages as that seems to be a trigger for the bug so as the thread was way way longer than that it has had a restart.

Oh I was hoping it had been because the Apple user had declared war and destroyed the very core of the old thread.

Think I'll go for the OnePlus 6.

Midnight or mirror black? Leaning almost certainly towards midnight.

I'm thinking the same. May wait to see what the Silk white version looks like in the flesh first though.

Anyone had hands on with both the OP6 and Honor 10? These are the options I'm considering but right now I think I the OP6 has the edge for me.

If you are getting a OnePlus 6, don't hang around. Otherwise OnePlus will have a T out before you know it and if like the 5 it is at the same price, it will be like a bit of a kick in the teeth. Also a pain as you find accessories are difficult to find.

I've got the Honor 10 and I'm really impressed. The camera is superb.

Photos taken on Pixel 2, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9+, One Plus 6 and the Huawei P20 Pro.

Which camera took which photo revealed at the end (avoid reading the comments).

Pixel 2 XL seemed like a clear winner to me. I thought iPhone X photos were the Galaxy due to how it treated the red fire hydrant.

From my experience of the OPO and OP5, the camera is not going to set the world alight. My daughter has an iPhone 8 and the photos she takes seem much better than on my OP5.

One of the many frustrations I have with my current phone (Moto G3) is the inexplicable battery depletion. I've done some general browsing today, that's about it. The battery report shows that 49% has been used on various things (screen, apps etc), yet the overall battery level has depleted by 85%. Where had the extra 36% depletion come from?

Upgraded my Gear S2 to an S3 Frontier, much nicer looking chunky watch and the battery in it is so much better.

I've had the same watch for a good few months now. Very impressed after owning a pebble for a long time. The battery is decent enough to last all day if you have always on enabled.

Probably a number of apps that have used less than 1% individually. Although thinking about it, 36% seems a bit too high for that explanation.

After checking my phone, 55% remaining but adding up what is used shows only 34%. Who is stealing our battery power!

Yeah with the S2 and having Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC (pointless on S2 as couldn't install Samsung Pay on it) and AOD by time I finished work it would be on 20% of I was lucky. S3 is on 55% right now and I've had it on since 7 this morning. And I can use Samsung Pay on it :mrgreen:

Bastard. Phone was left at a UPS pickup, Google said it closed at 7 so I leg it round, get there for 6.50 and it's already shut :(.

Anyone ever had an issue with the camera icon loading the gallery instead of the camera? It's happened all of a sudden for no apparent reason, and I don't know how to change it back. :x
