1 "Mitigation patches are flying all over the place right now."
As of last night when I heard about this, the fear/rumor was that said patches would hurt performance a lot.
Supposedly 8th and 9th-gen chips are immune to this particular set of flaws, and I assume Zen is as well.  If I go Intel with my next CPU it'll almost certainly be something like the 9700K--no HT.

2 I don't get the love for wireless charging.  Well, I understand why people like it but I much prefer fast charging.  Also, the OP7 and 7 Pro prices...ugh.  Sure, they're better than the $900+ prices for other flagships, but a 6-128 Mi Mix 3 is $506 on Amazon and has a Snapdragon 845 and NO NOTCH.

3 The device where I most appreciate wireless charging is my toothbrush. It's a convenience for my Apple Watch, but I suspect the primary beneficiaries are the engineers responsible for the waterproofing certification.

4 I should say that I don't have a problem with the concept of wireless charging in general, and I know they're making strides with phone charging getting faster, but it's like, gee, I could do 10W wireless or 30W wired...I'll take the faster over the convenience.
Plus, glass backs?  Barf.

5 I've had three devices so far that still worked fine but wouldn't charge from the USB port anymore.  Two supported wireless charging, so that was just an inconvenience.  The other one became a paperweight.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
