It is the first iPhone to lose the home button since the iPhone was first ever launched.

Releasing the OnePlus 5T will solidify OnePlus’ launch pattern it is trying to set in the market, as it released the 3T a few months after the OnePlus 3 was launched in mid-2016.
The edges are curved and the bezels remind us of the Samsung Galaxy S8 which is not a bad thing, because the Galaxy S8 is one of the best [...]
