Oneplus is a Chinese startup mobile phone company. Since they’ve released the original Oneplus phone, it was a flagship killer in its own right. But, it did come with some shortcoming in which the company has rectified through the years.
Now, the company has just released the Oneplus 3 and boy, I tell you, this mobile phone is a true flagship killer. With amazing specs and a price that a lot of people can afford, you’re looking into a potential best mobile phone of 2016 right here.
The Oneplus 3 deviates from the standard mobile phone design and they opted for a more premium look and feel. The company opted for an aluminum unibody which gave this phone its astounding allure.
The concept isn’t entirely new but I love the fact that the company went for premium materials as opposed to the polycarbonate plastic of the original iteration.
Just below the screen is a home button that also acts as the fingerprint scanner. I found that the fingerprint scanner is actually quite accurate. I like this move by the company since a lot of apps that make use of fingerprint scanners are already in the market and it would be nice to always include this feature in mobile phones to make it future-proof.
As for the display, the Oneplus 3 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD resolution display. The screen is actually called the “Optic AMOLED”, which is the company’s fancy way of naming the screen technology.
The Optic AMOLED screen delivered amazing colors and it also has great contrast as well. You can really tell the blacks, whites, and reds in every image or movie you’re going to view with this mobile phone.
A lot of people might be put off by the fact that the Oneplus 3 only comes with 1920×1080 resolution but in most use case scenarios, this is actually the standard.
There is one key feature of the Oneplus 3 I really want to talk about and that is its fast charging feature.
Termed the “Dash Charge technology”, this feature allows you to charge your phone from 0% to 60% in just 30 minutes! Although this may not be true for all, the fact that the charger can charge your phone in under an hour is really a great thing to have.
Most people have mobile phones now and they often use it a lot. Having this ability to quickly charge it is a huge plus for me.
The Oneplus 3 is a performance powerhouse. This phone comes with the Snapdragon 820 processor, which is a quad-core processor with two cores clocked at 2.15GHz and the other 2 cores clocked at 1.6Ghz.
Furthermore, this phone comes with a whopping 6GB of RAM and it also comes with the Adreno 530 GPU as well.
A person asked the CEO of the company about putting 6GB of RAM in the Oneplus 3, he responded that it will really help the phone in the future, especially when you’re launching applications.
And lastly, the Oneplus 3 comes with a 16-megapixel camera with various technologies such as HDR, a PDAF sensor, phase detection autofocus, optical image stabilization, electronic image stabilization, Dynamic De-noise, and HD mode.
Just recently, the company released a firmware update that will further improve the HDR capabilities of the mobile phone.
To fully utilize the connectivity of the Oneplus 3, it would be wise to get a mobile phone signal booster as well.
The Oneplus 3 is a true flagship mobile phone killer. With a killer price of $450, this phone has got all the goods and more.
