New update, first the bad news because I’ve learned bad should come before good in these situations. The bad news is this Eyoyo C1112 is unstable, after leaving it plugged in too long the display starts flickering on & off & the audio becomes distorted. Also on some input sources certain calibration settings are locked out in user picture mode & yes sadly the locked out settings do effect the image quality from my observation. I hope I received a defective unit & they are not all like this, that would suck. Now for the good news, user picture mode calibration updates in the included photograph & user color temperature can now stay neutral. It seems the color setting under user picture mode oversaturates green if set over 25 leading to my wonky user color temperature workaround from previous calibration, also contrast is your choice but 35 seems the better option at this point. Now I need to finish my food & get ba... show more

If G-d had wanted us to use computers he would have made them "fit our bodies." It's Adam and Eveboard not Adam and keyboard. Being together has nothing to do with the great #stanleythoughts you can create together or your ability to come to interpret charitably and even admire another entity's flaws like I do my computer's computer panics. No, it's purely about fit. That's why G-d wants humans to fuck only zucchini and peaches. #5aday #mangerbouger.fr #wearables #innovation #tech #jesus

OnePlus 6T review: Making affordable unbeatable - Nobody builds a phone with so much bang for the buck like OnePlus


That is a pretty good summary of the OnePlus phones - they pack a lot of features in for the price versus some other high-end phones with their prices going ever higher and higher.

Be very wary though of which region's model you buy as the "normal" US/EU model has Android Play Store included (in the EU still too??) and is running OxygenOS, whilst the Chinese regional model has HydrogenOS running which excludes the Play Store and Google apps, and yes it is often cheaper.

There is a nice overview though about the OnePlus 6T at https://mashable.com/feature/oneplus-6t-review/
