So here are my thoughts. Picked up the oneplus one figuring I could sell it of course. It's a nicely built device especially for the price. Packaging was excellent as well really impressive. I did a side by side comparison for a few hours between pictures videos fluidity.
Having the screen side by side I truly believe the g3 screen is better. Colors seem to pop more, everything and I mean everything is crystal clear on the g3. Video looks exceptional on the g3 and on the opo to me it looked washed out compared to it. The opo also didn't look nearly as clear side by side but of course that was expected but even text in a Web browser just looks so much better on the g3. The only thing I did notice screen wise browsing the Web is the whites are really milky white on the opo and more toned down on the g3. The opo goes much brighter too but I would never keep it on that high of a brightness to begin with. I think the g3 screen has spoiled me and I don't think I can use a 1080p screen any longer.
Loud speaker: the opo impressed me with its loudspeaker it was pretty loud I must admit but the g3 wiped the floor with it. Just louder and more of a fuller sound.
Camera: g3 is definitely better. For the back. Clearer pictures faster focus and better colors. The front facing camera definitely has to go to the opo though. Again this was expected considering the g3 is a 2 mp compared to opo 5 mp.
Fluidity: in my honest opinion I couldn't tell the difference. They both felt smooth.
Final thoughts : for the 5.5 inch screen size the g3 has worked wonders in making you think you are holding a smaller device it really is incredible how they designed this phone. The opo is just way to long for me. Don't get me wrong the back felt nice and the build quality was top notch for a $350 phone but it's just too big for me. There are too many pros that out weigh the cons for the g3 in my opinion. Add removable battery and SD card to me it's a no brainer. I usually get 4.5-5 hours of battery life for SOT on my g3 to begin and can normal get me through. A day on moderate use but I have a second battery so that's no issue for me.
Verdict : I'll be keeping my beloved g3 and selling my opo on eBay.
