I want to transfer all my info, apps music, photos from my old phone to the oneplus3
If you had a Google account it should sync across including photos if you use Google photos that is. Apps I think do to, if not I just manually select my apps in one go and install them.
I also just plug my old phone into the PC and copy stuff across onto the new phone. It doesn't take to long really but I would imagine there's also apps on the store to copy certain things.

Could you use:

AirDroid - Android on Computer

To achieve transfer ?

Nice, never seen that.

That meen looks awesome, simple idea but a great idea.


I currently have the Moto x force but my other half said she will buy me the plus 3 for my birthday, very tempting!!
It should all be linked to your Google account. I swap phones regularly, all my contacts are Google ones, all my apps install again and some even keep their settings.
WiFi passwords are stored too

Interestingly

Oneplus have admitted that the oneplus 3 does not address the full 6gb of ram as standard as it has a significant impact on battery life apparantly, and that it is there for developers to utilise if they wish.

I assume that means it only uses 4gb as standard, probably not an issue as 6gb is overkill but I am not sure I am happy at being misled.

Yes my Google contacts are intact. But my photos aren't as there stored on my SD card. Yes I've read the not 6 gb in use story this morning. That's a bit poor from one plus, users should have a choice on how they use their phone

There's an easy fix to use 6gb if you wanted but they should have put a simple switch in the settings and informed people.
I personally don't see the point in 6gb on a phone and would rather have it reduced along with a price reduction.

Its more a principle than anything, companies should not claim something if it isn't true.

If they gave you the option of using it in the stock rom and defined the impact on battery life then fair enough, but they don't

Companies should be honest with their customers and I am not sure I want to purchase a product from a company that clearly is not veing honest in their marketing.

I'm not disagreeing at all. Its the same as saying you have a 2ghz CPU but then underclocking it to 1.5 to save battery.
However, it wouldn't discourage me from buying it tbh but understand it could some.

I do love this phone, but it's pretty slippy to hold. Need to get a cover for it

So new owners, can you give us a run down on the battery performance once everything has settled down.
Also the display got a bit of a slap from the Anadtech review, any thoughts?
Cheers

For those that have already received their phones, how long did it take you to receive them from ordering/shipping?

And also, is the enclosed fast charge USB cable the only way to charge it now or can you just used a standard USB cable?

The dash charge will only work with the official charger and cable as its proprietary tech from opo. Also it uses Type C USB (phone end) which is physically a different shape, so you would need a Type C at the very least or a small converter.

I ordered mine on the 16th and I just got the shipped message today, I will let you know when it arrives

Received mine today.

I am extremely happy with it so far, it's too early to make a proper assessment on battery life etc but the phone is silky smooth in operation, I have had no slow down or lag in anything so far.

I can see what some reviewers have mentioned in regards to the colour temp/blue tint to the screen. It does not seem fixable via the colour temp settings, but I believe a firmware fix is on the way.

I have come from an lg g3 and it is a significant improvement. My eyes are getting older but I do not really notice the drop in screen resolution, in fact I positively welcome some sense on this issue as all the extra resolution does is increase battery drain and put greater strain on the internals as they have to push far more pixels around for no practical gain (vr excluded).

The build quality is excellent, fingerprint sensor really fast, speaker better than I expected so long as you don't cover it.

Something I hadn't expected from reading reviews was the improvement in call sound quality over my old g3.

Another plus is the availability of physical controls for home, back etc. The lack of these on the g3 effectively made the 5.5 inch screen on the g3 significantly smaller in practice than the same size screen on the OP3.

So very happy at the moment, some reservations on battery life but I won't make any judgement until it's gone through a few cycles

An update currently being rolled out to reviewers is supposed to allow better RAM management and make better use of the display for the sRGB colourspace - Oxygen OS 3.1.4
