Watch this review for details................
1. The reviewer is using the China/Asia specific variant of the ZTE Axon 7 running a fairly heavy overlay. The U.S. variant is mostly stock Android, until the U.S. model is tested in the same way - it is not a proper representation of the final product.
2. Most people won't notice the benefit for extra RAM, it was useless anyway until OnePlus patched it to keep more apps in memory.
3. The 1440p is significantly sharper for the same screen size for the ZTE Axon 7. Oneplus out of the box has crazy color inaccuracy
Later software allows for sRGB mode which fixes the problem but isn't the default:
Without proper RGB pixel layout on AMOLED screen resolution is much more important than anything else since the various sub-pixels size.
4. Some of us enjoy our music and the DAC built into Snapdragon 820 used by OnePlus is just "meh". ZTE's Dedicated chip/amp for a headphone jack should be a dramatic improvement for all headphones (cheap or expensive) - if it's anywhere close to the one used in the LG V10.
5. There is a likely chance ZTE will enable WiFi calling for T-Mobile and full Verizon/Sprint CDMA support - not happening on the OnePlus 3. (based on their history with previous ZTE Axon Pro)
6. Along the same lines, OnePlus has anemic LTE band support considering it is a dual SIM phone, poor global roaming.

6. Good luck with OnePlus support in the future, hopefully they've addressed most of the criticism by now.
