    The OnePlus 5 will get a dual-camera on the back of the device and will become available in black. A color that was't immediately available with the launch of the last OnePlus phone 3T....

    What does your last sentence even mean?

    As to it looking like a phone, yes, it looks like a phone just like all phones. Not a whole lot of ways you can make a phone look without making it inherently ugly. So does it look like an iphone? No. As an iphone looks like a phone, a galaxy looks like a phone, an LG looks like a phone, they all look like a phone.

    Why are smartphones STILL increasing in price. I don't wanna spend £800 on a flagship, or a bit less than that for the OnePlus...

    OnePlus was good, but now it's expensive so it's useless and crap, thank you but no thank you. Xiaomi are the only ones worth it right now it seems.

    As a proud owner of 1+1,1+3 all I can say. It's been emotional 1+, but no thank you. For that price am coming back to Xiaomi or smth else. Anyways the 1+3 will last good couple of years at least for me

    That sentence means that you are just trolling, your contribution had zero added value.

    Well, the Nokia 3310 is also a phone and the clam-shell phones (copied from the Star Trek communicator) are also phones. Does the OP5 look like them? No. It looks like an iPhone 7 Plus (or if you go even further, Apple copied the HTC design). Even though Samsung also did a lot of copying, they ended up with a design that's not reminiscent to other phone (that much).

    All the OnePlus phones till now had a distinctive design. They made a conscious decision to dump that and copy Apple.

    No, it definitely looks like an iPhone. Evidence of that is an overwhelming number of people saying it looks like an iPhone. Saying they all look like 'phones' is dumb. You're able to walk into a store and differentiate multiple different flagships based on their aesthetic design. Clearly other companies were able to find ways to make that happen - One Plus didn't.

    Absolutely disgusting. Hope Oneplus gets sued by Apple to hell and back. I lost all respect for Oneplus which was already low recently.

    They all are trying to mimic Apple designs. Why? Because it sells.

    Samsung has been doing it for years, LG has, HTC has, Motorola is about the only big company that hasn't.

    But let's be real, aside from antenna placement Apple does not hold a patent for a rectangle device with a black back and 2 cameras side by side. There's only so much you can do with a device design.

    Who cares if it looks like another phone? It it's a good phone I don't care if it's an identical clone of another one

    Tell what to samsung? That they got sued by Apple for the same reasons you guys are coming up with?

    So, basically what you're saying is you're ok with Apple deciding to sue, and win, for someone making a cellphone, because it was not apples cellphone?

    also, your picture is a fake. I'm not saying that using an actual picture you could try and say they are similar, but the problem with the picture you used, is its not the same design as the picture used in this article. There is no band right above the cameras. Nor does the camera look the same, as on the iphone, the outer casing kinda "rides" up to the camera. According to your fake picture, the one plus does this as well, even though it doesn't. I'll post a picture of the iphone 7+ casing "riding" up to the camera as well as a direct comparison to the one plus 5. It's not even as close to the edge as the fake picture implies. Someone made that picture for the sole purpose of making people believe it was a direct copy, and apparently it was successful on some people.

    I tried to see where you got this fake picture from and as far as i can tell, it was used on twitter to try and do exactly what you are doing. And as well there were some smart people on there, thankfully, who noticed its a complete fake.

    They do all look like phones, because they are all phones.

    Can't help that you can't see reality.

    Exactly.

    Where oh where do you think you could get an S8 for that price?

    According to this, the cheapest one will be ~$513, which means in USD it will likely be somewhere between $499-$549

    Cheapest S8 you can get is $724.99, around $200 more expensive, and that's for the S8, with less ram, let alone the S8+ for $850


    Because: Life. Everything gets more expensive, mostly due to inflation, but also due to newer technologies generally costing a premium.

    Personally, i got the Moto G5+ for $300, and couldn't be happier at the price i payed with the performance it offers, you don't always have to go flagship.

    LOL my G5 has dual rear cameras. And one is a wide angle. I can take a photo with 3 cameras on the phone.

    To even further showcase how fake that post is.

    Not even placed correctly, way to far to the left, again, to try and make people believe something looks like another product.
