Found 29th Sep 2016
I'm looking for something better than my current phone (LG G4) and not from LG (Had 2 LG G4's get the bootloop issue, so I'd rather not have the LG G5) or apple.

I'd like a phone that has the following features:

- Same or better processor than LG G4

- Fingerprint

- Type C

- Screen size: Min 5", Max 5.8"

- Resolution: Atleast 1080p

- Doesn't get too hot when in use

Interested in the New Google Pixel phones too.

What's the best place to buy a One Plus 3? I normally get my phones from amazon, but they don't sell them. I'l need a quick delivery time too, if possible.

Ships within 4 weeks for Graphite, although Soft Gold says 7 days. Are they good with repairs? LG took around 2 months just to fix the bootloop issue for my LG G4.

I've had the OPO, OP2 and the OP3 I never had any problems of any type so as for the repairs I couldn't tell you, some people have said that they have had problems but it must be the same as most mobile phone brands. If you bought it I don't think you would be disappointed, the only thing that I think it should of had was a 2K screen but the 1080 screen is fine.

Thank you, I'll go for it! As for the resolution I'm not too fussed, 1080p is fine for me, I prefer the extra battery life.

Much appreciated.

Does the dash charge affect battery life over time? I've heard charging a battery quickly shortens its life expectancy.

​I don't know whether the dash charge feature reduces the battery life but you could always use the USB C cable you get with the OP3 and use or buy a 1 or 2 amp charger block to charge the phone but it would take longer to charge it.

​Got the OP3, it's by far the best phone I've had. It doesn't even get hot after long uses. My G4 was untouchable and felt like it was melting.

The battery lasts so much longer thanks to the 1080p screen. It hasn't lagged once.

Thanks everyone for the recommendations.
