    I'm shocked to admit that even though I've used Nexus phones for years, as a OnePlus 3 owner I can't think of any good reasons to "upgrade". I'm so happy with this phone. It gets bogged down by nothing I throw at it. What would have made me consider is better front facing speakers and water resistance, both of which Google omitted from the Pixel. So is the slightly better camera worth the upgrade? I can't imagine so. Care to give me a reason to reconsider?

    I am even though I think it's ugly and over priced. I've watched the reviews and it's the software of course my addiction.

    I sold my last two OnePlus 3 (Graphite & Soft Gold) not because I wasn't happy but addicted. I actually think the 1+3 is the best of 2016.

    I sold the Soft Gold for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 but now that I got a full refund I'm thinking of going back to OnePlus. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I WENT BACK USUALLY ONCE I UPGRADE I'M DONE.

    What's stopping me is the Pixel and I heard rumours OnePlus is release a REFRESH?

    I waited for the Pixel announcement, laughed heartily, and ordered a OnePlus 3. It will be here October 28th.

    Same here. I like the Pixel, but I can't justify paying that much. Hoping the phone gets here soon!

    They do have top of the line specs and build quality as well as a great stock Android experience. But I do hope that high range phones are not the future for Google.

    I got my OP3 back in 9/23 after decided to give up on the note 7. Saw the pixel announcement on the 4th, and was like Yep definitely keeping the OP3 and waiting for OP4. Well lo and behold, just ordered the pixel xl 128gb black yesterday and eagerly waiting for it to arrive. Lol call me crazy. Once it comes I'll see if my cousin wants to buy the OP3, if not swappa here I come

    I was eagerly awaiting the announcement, but as soon as I saw the price I ruled it out completely. My wife has been wanting a new device and I was waiting on the Pixel potentially for her. At that price point I just bought her another iPhone, the 7+ specifically. It's what she knows so she is happy.

    Unless you love taking photos and it's your main camera. I wouldn't say the upgrade is needed. Sure it is a little better in terms of performance but nothing massive.

    The only other reason to possibly switch is if you want to be the first to receive updates.

    I ordered a pixel but I'm not sure when it will arrive. So I called google fi support and asked if I could use my fi sim in another non-google phone without being cut off. The answer is yes, BUT, I'll only be able to run on T-mobile towers and I won't be automatically sent to wifi (except home wifi) . So I'm considering the oneplus 3,and ZTE axon 7. Because im an audiofile, im leaning towards the ZTE. Any input would help.

    If you really consider yourself an audiophile, there should be no doubt which to choose - Axon 7.

    I had the Axon 7 together with the OP3 for a week. Audio capabilities definitely much better than OP3, but I couldn't get past some software quirks of the axon, and really hated the capacitative buttons layout, along with it being not back-lit. Plus the OP3 at the moment is getting much more software support, and development is much better on the OP3

    Whatever the Google Pixel XL may, or may not, offer.... is it worth more than twice the price?

    That comparison video is epic. Alas I will have to wait a bit longer due to the clownshoes in Shenzhen customs:

    Going to call DHL on the phone.

    Played with pixel in BestBuy today. Not impressive with those huge bezels at the bottom. Looks weird and it did lag when swiping to see Google now (usually I always see reviews hype in their reviews for a new phone). I think OP3 nailed it this time in design and software optimisation. Axon 7 looked great too (not sure about camera, heard update released today to fix some issues)

    I think the next Pixel will be the one to go for when Google have ironed out some kinks. In the meantime I'll enjoy the OP3 and my Pixel C Tab which arrives tomorrow.

    Everything I do on this phone is absolutely instant.

    Waking up with the fingerprint sensor? < 0.1 sec
    Waking up and taking a picture? < 1 sec
    Switching apps? Instant.

    I don't know if it's the lack of bloatware or the 6GB of RAM, but after a week of use, I have not in any way found this phone to be lacking in horsepower or capability. I have not experienced lag even once on this phone despite having tons of apps open, switching around, etc. I regret nothing, and I will have software updates long after a phone that costs $350 more has been abandoned.

    I hesitate to use the term, "flagship killer", but this phone can certainly hold its own against the latest smartphones... and at roughly half the price.
