It looks like OnePlus may be regretting their decision on bundling Facebook services with their devices:
As far as I'm concerned, the damage has still been done.
@gray sounds fun but I doubt that it will get a LineageOS build. Which is really a requirement for me, phones without it are really not worth considering
@Matter Fantastic point. Thankfully that's not a deal breaker for me at this time.
However, the team are interested in custom ROM's and are looking in to it: https://community.myteracube.com/t/e-os-rom/715/15
So could be a possibility in the future.
@gray I have a OnePlus 6T with LineageOS installed on it. Works perfect.
@gray the📱 phone looks terrific and in another situation I'd be buying right now.
I have a major concern, tho: It has not been shipped so is just a promise and may not not be as good as their specs says. It may not even be a reality. It looks too good to be true.
Dec 2020 is just right on the corner and by now they should be having all the phones on a warehouse ready to be tested and delivered; do they have any evidence?
Sorry if I'm that negative and ruining your excitement.
@esparta I certainly share that concern, as with most projects like this. It has an element of too good to be true about it.
Thankfully I have until some time in November to cancel the order, so I'll be keeping a very close eye on it.
Fingers crossed this one comes through and I can do a write-up about the device! :)
