OnePlus 3 review: Time-saver edition


Thin metal body, solid build quality ; Sharp 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED screen delivers pleasantly punchy and vibrant colors ; Impressive 16MP shooter, especially for stills ; Snappy performance and virtually no bloat on the Oxygen OS ; Truly impressive...

A quality act is hard to follow, especially so, when you've already done it twice and you are gunning for nothing short of gold with a "never settle" attitude. The third flagship in OnePlus's modest device lineup represents a new and quite difficult...

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


In June, the OnePlus 3 redefined the boundaries of what a midrange phone could deliver. For $399 or £309 (about AU$590), you get a top-of-the-line processor, a nimble 16-megapixel camera, and a long-lasting battery. You also get a speedy performance...

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: 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 ,...

The OnePlus 3 Review


In 2014 OnePlus was a company that was basically unheard of. Despite that, there was great anticipation in the Android enthusiast community about a new smartphone coming from this new company. Their first smartphone ended up being called the OnePlus...

As it stands, my recommendation on the OnePlus 3 is exactly that, a conditional one. If the problems with the display don't bother you then there's a lot to like here. Despite the small problems it has besides the screen, the OnePlus 3 represents a...

OnePlus 3 Smartphone Review


Power player. All good things come in threes. Probably this is just what the Chinese smartphone manufacturer was thinking when it launched the third generation of the flagship killer: The OnePlus 3. But it is not all roses.

build ; high performance without throttling ; decent camera ; fast storage device ; fast WiFi ; dual-SIM ; USB Type-C ; notification slider ; decent screen ; generous internal storage ; decent call quality and noise suppression ; Quick Charge

LTE Cat. 6 only ; regionally varying band connectivity ; non-expandable storage ; no radio ; no infrared ; noise-laden speaker ; useless sRGB mode

The OnePlus 3 is a successful smartphone that not only offers a solid configuration, but also looks good and is well-built. It features a fast Snapdragon 820, very generous 6 GB of working memory, a fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM, long-awaited NFC, a...
