Keep in mind, only Oxygen OS firmware 3.1.2 / 3.2.4 will work with fingerprint scanners with custom roms. Anything higher will not work.

I'd stick to buying it in Canada. Exchange rate today is actually pretty bad. If you use a normal Canadian VISA, the exchange rate is actually 1.390478 right now (VISA Exchange Rate Calculator). That means $440 USD is $610 CDN or $10 more. Sure, you will still save some money on taxes, but then you have the hassle of going down to pick it up and the hassle of doing returns if there are issues with the phone.

If the exchange rate was better though, I'd be less hesitant.

My wife love the style of this One plus 3. But it is a Chinese device and price is more than $500. That's why I am bit confuse. Does it worth?

Not all Chinese-made products equate to lesser value and/or quality. I'm using the OnePlus 3 myself and I find it adequate for my needs and can still hold its own.

I suggest you watch reviews of the phone on YouTube and read more about it. What may be good for one may not be enough for someone else.

I think the answer is in your question.

I know, right? How dare those Chinese charge so much? /s

Updates above 4.1.6 break AGPS on some carriers, sticking to that for now.

Best phone I've ever owned, still as zippy as the day it was delivered to my door.
Koodo: $40 8GB + $0 5GB promo add on = $40 for 13GB.

It's an older phone now but I got one free 'cause it looked bricked. After much futzing with unbrick tool I finally got it working. Feels much snappier than my LG G5 and like @tk1000 said, the OnePlus 3 is slated to receive Android P soon. My LG G5 is still stuck on Nougat with Oreo possibly later this year...

What's wrong with Oreo? I heard/read a mixed bag of reviews regarding Android P.
