Honestly, no phone is perfect. Jelly screen was overblown with the 5 as most people don't notice it. Even still, people flocked to the Galaxy S8 after the Note7 battery issues, people gobbled up iPhones even after Antennagate & Bendgate, so I'm pretty sure an upside down screen that most people don't even notice is not even going to cause a blip in terms of sales.

I'm happy with my 5 though, so unless I get a strong urge to sell it this week (before we know the pricing of the 5T),I'll probably just hang onto my 5.

Wishful thinking but will it be water proof and have dual front speakers?

The Oppo R11S that the OnePlus 5T is a basic clone of doesn't have water resistance, so it's unlikely the 5T will. Given the "bezel-less" design of the chassis, it's also highly unlikely it will have dual speakers. It has the S8 style tiny front bezels along with retaining the headphone jack, so there would be no room to put a second speaker.

So no IP67/68, no OIS and no expandable storage yet, and they kept the battery the same as the OP5?

Yup, and it sounds like the telephoto camera is the only one with a new image sensor - main one is the same. The display clearly is the focus here; otherwise definitely not worth upgrading from my 5 (thank goodness).

What about coming from a fully functional OP2 sort of stuck at Android 6.0? ( I know I can upgrade, but I am stuck due to some early issues with the bootloader and TWRP, I just don't care to out the effort forth now)

What about the back? The best thing about the OP2 is the sandstone back. Love the way it feels in hand.

They have a slim case with the sandstone back. I personally prefer a case just because of how thin the 5 is. The 5T would probably be a nice upgrade for you.

The OnePlus 5T is available in Midnight Black. It begins at $659 CAD for the 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is unclear how much the 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage variant will be in Canada.

Not available to pre-order yet. Sales of the OnePlus 5T via the OnePlus website start on Tuesday, November 21st in North America.
