OnePlus 3 first look: 10 reasons to choose it over a Samsung, LG, HTC, or iPhone

 

I purchased my first OnePlus product and am already questioning why I pay $200 to $500 more for the big brand smartphones. The OnePlus 3 may change my future purchase plans.

OnePlus 3 review:

 

Last year, my idea of a fantastic "high-end" budget phone was something like the Google Nexus 5X -- a bit smaller than your usual flagship with a decent-but-not-mindblowing camera and a processor that, while not at the top of the class, still made...

The OnePlus 3's sharp camera, powerful processor and enduring, quick-charging battery make a knockout combo when you factor in its low price.

The camera has a distinct bulge. Power users may be disappointed that the phone doesn't have a swappable battery or expandable storage.

At $400, the OnePlus 3 is the best budget Android phone you can buy, with a premium look and feel, and performance fast enough to go head-to-head with any high-end handset on the market.

OnePlus 3 review: The best phone you can get for $399

 

OnePlus is back with its third-generation flagship phone, and it has more than enough horsepower to duke it out with devices twice its price. The phone's construction feels first-rate too, and OxygenOS -- the custom version of Android it runs -- could...

First-rate performance ; Excellent build quality ; Mostly stock Android, plus some neat features ; Dual SIM support ; It's $399!

Ships with a few minor bugs ; Limited memory options ; Dash charger doesn't work with all cables

At the end of the day, no phone is perfect, and the OnePlus 3 doesn't try to be. What it does try to do is capture the essence of a flagship smartphone -- impeccable performance, smart software and top-notch build quality -- and squeeze it all into an...

OnePlus 3 review: lessons learned

 

Carl Pei wants you to believe in OnePlus. It's been three years since this 26-year-old co-founded the company, and as he's talking to me, the OnePlus 3, the company's latest flagship, is due to...

Great build quality ; Fast performance ; Bright, sharp display

Doesn’t work on Verizon or Sprint ; No SD card expansion ; Quick charging limited to included cable and power brick

OnePlus 3 (Unlocked)

 

The unlocked OnePlus 3 smartphone delivers tremendous bang for your buck, with top-of-the-line performance for $400.

Segment-leading benchmark performance. Long battery life. Good call quality. Sharp photos in good lighting.

Lower-resolution screen. Some corners cut in network and Wi-Fi support. Low-light imaging isn't great.

Comparisons and Conclusions The OnePlus 3 is a sleek, powerful Android phone. That's unquestionable. But $400 is an odd price for a phone right now since it's outside the budget realm. Our Editors' Choice budget unlocked phone, the Blu Life One X ,...

OnePlus 3 Review

 

Is it time to start taking OnePlus seriously? With a massive launch on day one with availability in 31 countries across the globe and fast shipping, the OnePlus 3 means business…

Hard-to-beat price ; Great design: solid build, thin and lightweight, comfortable to hold ; Very fast and smooth performance ; Excellent image quality ; One of the best selfie cameras we’ve seen on a phone ; Dash charging is extremely fast (you can...

Colors on the display are not properly balanced, whites appear blue ; Battery life is below expectations ; Super slow adaptive brightness ; Loudspeaker is not loud enough, lacks a bit in clarity

Some two years after launching with a loud bang, the OnePlus company is still going strong. It has done away with the invite shenanigans, and it allows consumers to buy the new OnePlus 3 right away.

Review: OnePlus 3

 

The OnePlus 3 boasts top-level specs and performance, but is more affordable than you might think. Those interested in exploring the unlocked Android market will find a lot to like in the OnePlus 3. Here is our full review.

OnePlus managed to create a compelling handset in the 3. The phone covers all the necessary bases to be deemed a flagship, and yet it doesn't even come close to flagship pricing.

OnePlus 3 review: Refining a flagship killer

 

A Snapdragon 820 SoC, a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, a whopping 6GB of RAM - how does the OnePlus 3 fare in the sea of 'affordable high-end' Android smartphones? We find out in this review.

Truly premium design ; Flagship-tier hardware at an affordable price ; Beautiful Full HD display ; Quick-charging battery

No microSD card support ; No new major software features ; Average camera performance

A phone under S$700 that isn’t a pain to buy makes the OnePlus 3 a very tantalizing option. If you’re gunning for a smartphone with a Snapdragon 820 processor at a price point lower than typical flagship devices, the OnePlus 3 is a no-brainer. Against...

OnePlus 3 review: going mainstream

 

OnePlus has come a long way since the OnePlus One was released a little more than two years ago. Watching the trajectory of this Chinese startup is like seeing a child celebrity grow up, shaking off the demands of fame and maturing. But it's not what...

High performance ; Premium design ; Hard-to-beat value ; Dash Charge is fast

Smaller battery than OnePlus 2 ; Underwhelming display ; No microSD support

OnePlus has iterated on a compelling formula for three years now. The OnePlus 3 doesn’t differ from what made its predecessors great; there are upgrades to the hardware each year, upgrades that all manufacturers employ, and sooner or later we buy in....
