OnePlus 6 Factory Tour

Recommended Posts

I have no problems with sponsored factory tours and showcases like the "initial opinion" thing they dropped today but I don't think LTT should review this phone now like Linus said he would at the end of the initial reactions video. 

 

Also, they jacked up the prices so much but didn't get an IP rating or wireless charging? The amount of RAM is definitely overkill, and this one is subjective but the design just looks ugly AF (what's the forum policy on swearing btw?), would be skipping this one.

Yeah thought so, haven't been involved in these forums before but I did notice the lack of profanity.

The mods have good judgement on here.

I'm about 6' tall plus footwear, a phone falling 1.8M with me is 100% possible if at the ear.

 

Beyond that it was a awesome video :D

I don't tend to swear much at all in RL. Full-blown profanity is reserved for when things go horribly wrong, as in "Huh, I thought I had ten fingers when I came in" wrong.

 

 

Modern phones are an impressive engineering feat. This manufacturing line serves to exemplify the amount of work going into producing one. There are very many steps involved in the QA, though there are also lots of things that are crammed into a phone that can go wrong too.

It's most likely necessary on a mass production scale, but having a metal frame holder with one cutout for the screw on each step is just crazy overkill compared to ifixit repair guides, LOL

 

(also TIL I'm technically taller than linus ._.)

That’s an impressive looking factory thought I’d wager that many top-level phone manufacturers would have this sort of QA testing to some degree.

 

Regardless, back to the phone. I can’t help but feel very “meh” towards it. It’s the expected incremental update but also nothing really special or anything. In fact, the move to glass made it stand out less IMO. I know a lot of tech bloggers want phones to stand out but just adding a glass back just makes it blend in IMHO.

 

Also not big on the price hike. OnePlus is slowly becoming less and less of a value proposition with every new phone it releases and I really hope the camera is upgraded enough to justify the bump

Yeah I think it's pretty cool there isn't swearing.

When repairing phones, the quantity is very minimal compared to what is required for mass production. Every little advantage that can improve efficiency will (within reason) be take. Much like a cpu pipeline, bottlenecks anywhere in the chain can slow down everything else.

 

A production line looks a lot like a cpu pipeline, actually, or rather, the other way around.

I mean, when you're doing it potentially 1,000+ times per day I'm sure the frame comes in handy xD even if it only increases efficiency by 3-5 additional reps, that's 3-5 more phones for them to sell.
