but if you provide evidence that they don't, I will change my opinion of course :)

Thanks man! The stuff on the volume levels is really weird indeed, the graph that I posted in this thread previously clearly shows that the V10 has more than double the dB as opposed to the Galaxy s7. Its really not scientific the methods that they are using.
 
In terms of performance, all these numbers could be explained by bad amplifiers as far as I can tell. But it is definitely fishy, also considering the errors they apparently make in the screen measurements. I will keep this in mind in the future

Definitely not, They use active external amplifiers when testing these smartphones, So blaming it on bad amp is not a valid explanation (plus the devices we mentioned has better internal amp than Mi5 if you are concerned).

I want to connect my OP3 to Chord Mojo so I need a USB C to microUSB cable.

To be honest i am pretty underwhelmed with the lack of power with the OP 3t. I confess i dont have the most efficient iems but i do have the Meze 99c and they are pretty darn efficient and with those even i find the depth the output lacking. I had great expectations from the 821.. hopefully an update will miraculously solve this.

DHL delivered my new OnePlus 3T today  (48 hours from China to TX.....not bad)
 
I copied a chunk of my music library and plugged in my UE TripleFi 10's.  I'm more than happy with the way this phone drives my TF10's.   However I should make the caveat that I immediately flashed Resurrection Remix (7.1.1).  My media player is Neutron with crossfeed enabled and a bit of EQ to bring my IEM's more to my liking.
  
 
I don't claim to be anyones audiophile, but I know bad sound when I hear it and after a couple of hours of listening, I've found nothing to complain about.

Thanks, finally I got this one and works properly with UAPP and Chord Mojo. Impressive SQ.
What a pity UAPP does not play Tidal offline
