Oneplus 5 and Android N packs quite a punch

It’s been a couple months of using my OnePlus 5 phone. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the brand, it’s a Chinese Company that is a subdivision of the company that makes Oppo phones among others.
I got mine with the code they handed out at the keynote speech.
They phone comes with a whopping 6GB Ram and the latest Snapdragon 835 SOC. It’s fast and responsive and quite an upgrade to my 3 year old HTC One M7.
I simply love the camera which visibly takes great pictures with both cameras. I have  actually taken great selfies with fireworks in the dark. Portrait mode and pro mode help you leave your heavy DSLR home.
They are getting a bit pricier but at 479 USD, they are a great bargains to the Samsung S8 and the iPhone although the S8 comes with a better display that is more suitable for VR applications.

Android N is a great upgrade as well but I see a few annoyances. The Hangouts app or in general the Google chat fiasco has moved me to whatsapp. I am still looking for a good car app. Android auto is still too slow for handsfree use on the road.
