I'll stick with the OP5. This is just a bigger screen and less bezel, right?

Same screen, same battery size, slightly different rear camera.

The idea of buying a brand new 'flagship' phone today is silly. Kind of like going out and buying a brand new MacBook or car off the showroom floor.

My $550 all-in still under warranty Kijiji 128GB iPhone 7 is just fine and silly cheap compared to a $930 + tax iPhone 8 64GB for example.
My $1500 all-in Kijiji Macbook 15" retina mid 2014 model works just as well as a new $3200+tax model (and has just about identical specs)
My 2015 GMC truck is hardly any different than a 2018 model, yet I paid $10,000's less for it with only 35K KM on the clock.

Mobile phones and computers these days are no different than cars - tiny incremental improvements from one year or generation to the next with rarely any reason to drop the big bucks on the newest model.

Wait 8 months and pay someone $300 for their OnePlus 5T. Let them take the depreciation hit.

Of course this depends on viewing distance. Nothing will look good with your nose up against the screen.
My point is that 400ppi is plenty sufficient. If you want that extra ppi at the cost of shorter battery life, that is your prerogative. I choose the latter.
Going reductio ad absurdum with the 'nose up again the screen' argument...come on, be realistic...I mean who looks at a phone's screen like that? We are talking about averages and at the average viewing distance, many people can see a difference between 300 ppi and much higher ppi such as 550, as in the example I gave with the S7. If we were talking 450 ppi vs 550 ppi, then I would tend to agree with you. In short, maybe you can't see the difference but don't get all riled up because you got fact checked...In the end, I'm glad you don't care what I choose...that would just be weird and creepy.

Back to the phone at hand, the OnePlus 5T is 400ish ppi...I would certainly be annoyed and would notice the reduced ppi as it is similar if not identical to the zenphone 3 that I returned awhile back because I felt the screen wasn't sharp. Other than that, the phone is solid, especially w/ the dual sim feature for the price.

Kinda agree with you but sometimes you found something in kijij that are totally bad and still they want to sell it for good money. No warranty sometimes is a risk but for q phone I'd take it

Is the Dual SIM in standby mode?
No, both sims are active all the time. You seamlessly can use either.

Good, because that is my point. This phone has ~400ppi, which is good enough.

Is the 5T waterproof? It is why I bought the S8 over the 5, but 5T waterproof at this price point would be a steal.

They didn't advertise it but someone tested it on youtube with the OP5. It can stand water but it is by no means "waterproof". It may be water resistant

We have a 1+3 and a 1+3T in the family. Working like a charm still. And I believe the Android O support is coming. Looking forward to it. New phone price is indeed coming up but not crazy. Any phone more than $800 might as well get a laptop for the price.

I hate you OP ... I was happy enough with my cracked screen S8 and had forgotten about 1+ 5t release ... It looks sexy as hell ! Will probably bite.
There should be a study conducted to figure out the exact cost on the global economy of the touchpad's price drop. It should account for the lack of productiveness from employees across Canada and the US for a whole three weeks and the replacement cost of all those f5 keys ....
