I read everyone justifying the removal of the jack for the bigger battery, but you guys realize that the Pocophone F1 has a 4000 mAh AND a headphone jack, right? I was waiting for the 6T to change from my 3T, but I guess I'll have to look elsewhere for what I need.

And before you get all bitchy about "oh, get a BT HP, qq", I have the Fiio BTR1 that I use with my headphones, but it would've been nice to have the headphone jack as a support when the battery drains, but oh well, I'll keep looking for another phone that has the capability that I need.

I wanted to add information on the topic for the readers.
These are the best phones (in-terms of squeezing large batteries into small bodies) available:

7,000mAh / 156 x 78 x 7.4 mm = 77.74 Score... Gionee m2017
https://www.gsmarena.com/gionee_m2017-8495.php

6,000mAh / 152 x 76 x 8.6 mm = 60.39 Score... Gionee Marathon M5
https://www.gsmarena.com/gionee_marathon_m5-7259­­.php

5,000mAh / 147 x 71 x 8.5 mm = 56.36 Score... ZTE Blade A6
https://www.gsmarena.com/zte_blade_a6-8970.php

4,100mAh / 139 x 69 x 8.5 mm = 50.29 Score... Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro
https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_3_pro-8007­­.php

3,300mAh / 131 x 69 x 9.0 mm = 40.56 Score... Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX
https://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_razr_maxx-4666­­.php

3,000mAh / 130 x 65 x 8.9 mm = 39.89 Score... BLU Life Pure Mini
https://www.gsmarena.com/blu_life_pure_mini-6041­­.php

As a reference, for the Density Score the higher the better. And anything above 51 is Perfect and anything below 39 is Poor. That means a Score of 50 is Excellent, a Score of 45 is Good, and a Score of 39 is Average.
....in comparison to these current phones/very poor performers:
4,000mAh / 162 x 77 x 8.8 mm = Density Score 36.44: Samsung Galaxy Note9
3,520mAh / 158 x 77 x 7.9 mm = Density Score 36.62: Google Pixel 2 XL
4,000mAh / 156 x 75 x 8.8 mm = Density Score 38.85: Xiaomi Pocophone F1
2,716mAh / 144 x 71 x 7.7 mm = Density Score 34.49: Apple iPhone X

In 2019 I would rather hope the industry go towards this:
5.7inch: 4,000mAh / 150 x 75 x 7.9 mm = 45.00 Density Score
5.2inch: 3,500mAh / 135 x 70 x 7.9 mm = 46.88 Density Score
4.7inch: 3,000mAh / 125 x 60 x 7.9 mm = 50.63 Density Score
....but I have a better chance of winning the lottery!

This is the problem, y'all just want this or that. Y'all are the reason why smartphones are getting expensive. Y'all want,want,and want. Yeah, it's stupid for them ditching the headphone jack but other than that it's turning out another great smartphone. The OnePlus 6T doesn't need a camera upgrade, it's already one of the best in 2018. How's the under display fps is stupid? It's the most convenient way to unlock your phone, major OEMs like Samsung are jumping on the ship. If OnePlus did made a huge upgrade on the 6T, y'all would complaining " They made the 6 obsolete, unbelievable!" ... Smh!

But is well known the conspiracy or plot between carriers/manufacturers/streaming services they charge you. So i refuse waste part of my data plan even having 10 Gb monthly. I'm not going to follow their game. This as many others isn't a cheap phone, but they cut features like the microsd slot, FM Radio, etc, to make you pay more in several ways.

No FM Radio = No party, so wallet closed. The lack of audio jack is another reason to look elsewhere. And if you remove features like the jack, you should have more space for a lot bigger battery.

KeitaiOtaku, 27 Sep 2018Exactly. I'm disappointed as well. This is no upgrade. They coul... moreThis phone wasn't meant for a huge upgrade anyway. Ya'll need to lower your expectations. No wonder smartphones keep getting expensive these days because Ya'll just want want want! Wait for the OnePlus 7 for that...

Soory but a 3,5 Jack is so use less. Get some good bt headphones but please dont cry like this . For me the 6t Perfect phone

The battery being at 3,700mAh is a good size for this phone. OnePlue phones as of late have always had fantastic screen time and usage endurance. This will be no different.

It's difficult to comment about everyone being upset about a 3.5mm jack. The phone has a very weak DAC so you won't be able to get any Hi-Fi audio out of it, and the adapter for USB-C is not going to result in any loss of quality. Wireless is the same situation.

Sushant Sic, 27 Sep 2018Not just the Headphone Jack, they also have a S Pen in there too... Correct!

A higher capacity battery would be awesome.
Ditching the headphone jack is perfect. In the age of Bluetooth, who needs a jack that came out in the 1950's?
A triple camera setup would be amazing. Preferably a wide angle, normal, and a telescopic (zoomed in) lense.
Actual waterproofing would be a deal maker. IP68
512GB of storage as an available option would keep up with the stiffest competition.
I would consider the latest version of android available a necessity to come pre-installed on the phone. PIE
Wireless charging would be great, which may account for the thicker phone design.
Adding CDMA networking for Verizon would give the phone a much larger customer base in the United States.
A heavy duty otterbox case would be a great accessory for those like myself who take life to the extremes. Working in all environments and having to use a phone constantly for business makes waterproofing and a robust case a necessity.
After nearly a year and a half of constant use, my oneplus 5 is still living up to expectations, so I expect a lot from my new replacement which I hope to be a oneplus 6T.

AnonD-784123, 27 Sep 2018Wait, So they remove the headphone jack to add a 3700 mah batter... moreNot just the Headphone Jack, they also have a S Pen in there too...

Guys, if you have Oneplus 6 - anyone experiencing issues like voice call cannot be heard, missing notifications for missed calls and WhatsApp received messages, incoming calls not going through, or other issues - someone posted a bunch of them.

Have Oneplus fixed them yet ?

Looking forward for 6T - but cannot afford to have those particular issues mentioned =(

My only Xiaomi still works properly after over four years. As much as I don't want another Chinese brand because of the heavy skin, I find Taiwanese (HTC, ASUS) and South Koreans (Samsung, LG) to NOT be any more reliable.

TOP 3
Google (USA)
Sony (Japan)
OnePlus (China)

Taiwan and South Korea are nothing special when it comes to reliability.

They could have made such a great phone had they copied the R17 Pro exactly as how it is and just stuck in an SD845 and put Oxygen OS on it. And no headphone jack is just ridiculous if there's nothing to compensate that. I was so badly hoping for Super VOOC like charging speeds....
