    Currently I have been waiting for the new iPhone coming out this fall, but realized that buying an Oneplus 3 maybe would be a better idea. I like how the iPhone syncs with my Mac, that I am able to send text messages and take calls on my Mac. How ever, I am not sure if I am willing to pay double for that..

    What do you think? IPhone 7 or OP3?

    By looking at rumours, I don't think the iPhone looks that promising...

    I think you are getting a lot for your monkey is you buy the OP3. The device is smaller and lighter then the iPhone 6/6S Plus but has the same screen size.

    There's a service called Airdroid that might help sending text from your Mac, but you will not be able to use iMessage.

    But i think the battery of the oneplus 3 is so worse than the good battery life of the iphone 6s plus, isnt it?

    I see, thanks! Do you think it will be a difficult transition going from 4 inches to 5,5?

    From what I've read, it should be quite similiar I think. I don't own neither of the two devices though..

    Not sure I agree with this. The OP3 is the most battery efficient phone I've ever owned!

    Do you have anything to point out that you have not been satisfied with? Regarding both hardware and software?

    Phrasing.

    It'll be an adjustment, but as long as your hands (and pockets) are big enough the 5.5 inch screen will be a huge blessing.

    Personally I'd prefer a 5.2 inch screen, I'm a 6'1" male, I don't have much trouble handling it, but it's a bit cumbersome in my pocket... Phrasing.

    Yeah, I've held the lg g4 and I did not think of that size as a problem. What phone do you have?

    Currently the OnePlus 3. It feels a bit better in the hand than the g4 in my opinion, but they're fairly comparable.

    Okay, thanks for the reply! How has your experience with the OP3 been? Any specific issues? Overall?

    I'm consistently getting around 7 hrs SOT with the OP3. 6S plus was around 5 with same accts and apps. That is my comparison.

    Haven't really put it through its paces yet but the videos I have taken have come out fine. Call quality is great.

    Overall the experience is excellent, aside from one issue...

    My task switcher will occasionally not show any apps... If I remember I'll take a screenshot the next time it happens.

    I actually think it might be an app rather than the OS because I seem to be the only person that's experiencing it, but it's quite irritating.

    Those are my results, as always ymmv. I run a ton of apps and have lots of email accts., social media and take a lot of photos. The iPhone 6S plus has great battery life for sure. This is just working better for me. Hope that helps.
