Easy to lose the adapter, and it doesn't help if you're in a car with only an AUX cable and need to charge your phone at the same time.

(The only two cases I see this being an issue - since I don't drive and I have Bluetooth headphones, it personally doesn't affect me at all.
ok, I guess that could be a problem if your car doesn't have bluetooth and you're playing music from your phone through and AUX connection. I've got BT in the car and I either stream from an app or play FLAC through BT while it's plugged in to charge for Google Maps.. I guess you can't win them all.

1. I'm sure it's compatible with all major cell providers. They have a compatibility list on the OnePlus site.

2. Comes with a black/clear silicone case with a plastic screen protector pre-installed.

3. It is worth it if you want the dash charge function. It does charge the phone really fast - one of the best in the industry

4. Haven't noticed a black sale before but since it's new I highly doubt it would go on sale
From my experience with the OP5, I only had the one Dash adapter that came with the phone and bought a few of the red dash USB-C cables .. I kept one in the car, one in the office and a spare at home. The dash plug is nice but the standard power adapters were sufficient for the odd time I needed to charge so I didn't spend the $25 or whatever it costs for an additional dash specific adapter. I also use the anker 3 port USB 12v for the car and found that to be sufficient for charging in the car. 1 USB for my dashcam, one for my phone, and one for the wife's lightning cable. If apple standardizes their products to use USBC that'll make it a lot better for everyone.

Also for those looking for dash cables.. you can find them on bang.good for around $7 I bought my three cables from there about 2 years ago and they work perfectly fine for dash.. They are listed as original and arrived packaged like the original in case anyone was wondering.

The adapter is also $19 there if you're so inclined to buy another spare adapter.. I didn't buy one so if someone buys one please report back. It's cheaper than buying from oneplus, or amazon and there's no minimum shipping. Only thing I recall was it took like 2-3 weeks I think like most items ordered from China.

I don't know who's asking for phones to get thinner that they need to eliminate the headphone Jack.

Like I said this is business move or they're simply running out of ideas.
Marketing departments are asking for phones to get thinner. That's who. Because they need a new gimmick every year in order to sell more phones. "Same as last year, just a bit faster with better battery life" isn't sexy enough when your CEO is up on stage announcing the latest amazing thing, sadly. Personally, I don't care either way about the headphone jack since I gave up on wired headphones years ago, but I'd just love to see phones getting thicker again in order to fit a bigger battery. Give me an extra 2-3mm and 50% extra battery life any day.

I know it's marketing. I forgot to add a smiley. It was a rhetorical remark.

That's the point these companies are out of ideas, hence the foldable phones that they are willing to sacrifice battery life and functionality.

How is screen quality on these things? I remember the first OnePlus phone having that horrible yellow tint and I never went back since...

The yellow tint issue wasn't even a problem with all batches of the original OP1. They've grown a bit in the 4.5 years since then. You can even get in-Canada warranty service now.

Pretty good. The display type is different...

One: LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
6T: Optic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

+1000

Add 2mm thickness and cram a 5000 mAh battery in a flagship phone. Yes please.

Just setting mine up now. Love it so far.

What's the consensus on the screen protection that came on it? Are we happy with it? Or are people just pulling it off for a glass protector?

I have always used glass, and find the film feels too grippy so far but I am sure I would get used to it.

Have the phone's original protector on now for a few days now. It is ok, but I would rather get glass too. Haven't found any good ones on Amazon yet.

Did anyone try any glass one and recommend it?
