OnePlus 3 or Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe

Tumpster 873 114 June 28, 2016 at 07:54 PM
Considering one of these but can't figure out which. I currently own a OnePlus One which I love, big on rooting and utilizing different Roms. However the ZenFone looks like a hell of a phone for the money, I'm trying to make the next phone my phone for 2-3 years. I like the expandable storage and all the specs but I don't know what community is out there or how friendly is Asus with unlocking their phones. I've been a fan of Asus and have been using their products for years but I do enjoy OnePlus and what they offer. I would appreciate anyone's feedback or opinions, thanks!

The OnePlus 3's screen is said to be an utter failure, but you can't beat the development for the phone. Everything else looks to be perfect.

The ZenFone looks insanely good, but I'd wait until it's reviewed more in the US, and gets some work done to it.

Personally? I'd see if you can get an HTC 10 for close to the price. Development and roms are great, and the phone is absolutely spectacular. If you can find it for close to $500, it's a steal.

Looking more and more like the ZTE Axon 7 will come with an unlocked bootloader, might leans towards that one too. More phone for the $$$$$

ZTE has typically not been developer friendly with their previous phones when it comes to bootloader unlocking. I would stick with OnePlus since they have been pretty developer friendly.

Considered this and decided on a OnePlus 3. I'm loving it so far and the skys the limit with the community. I'm liking the changes that have been made/implemented to Oxygen OS. Thank you for the help on this one.
