With this huge number of smartphone manufacturers currently present in the market, it is almost unfathomable for the general audience to remember the names of all the companies, let alone remember the names of the smartphones they make. In such times, there come brands like the OnePlus, making it easier for anyone to remember the names of their smartphones. They came with their One, Two, X, and now the 3rd Generation line of OnePlus Smartphones, and boy have people been impressed!
To begin with, the OnePlus 3 is a smartphone launched by the company in mid-June, and has a tough armour to fight it out in this battle of the phones. Here, we bring to you a detailed spec-list that the “3” is sure to have!
In terms of the hardware, the OnePlus 3 is packed in an all-new Metal and Glass design, which reminds us of another Chinese company, but the change in the design from the older brushed-plastic (or whatever that oddly satisfying scrubby-finish at the back of the previous generation model was) is a welcoming change!
The front would sport a 5.5 inches full HD 1920*1080 pixel Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen, with a home button right below it. The home button also works a fingerprint scanner, similar to last year’s model, but what we don’t know yet, is whether the button would have tactile feedback (last year’s model didn’t allow the users to actually press the button: again, a bit weird for the OCD in some)!
The dimensions of this model would be at a 7.3mm thickness that seems to make the phone look fairly slim, and weighs at roughly 160gm. But this does resemble the likes of an iPhone and Samsung S Series of devices.
Under The Hood
Underneath the chic metal design, runs the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, with 4 cores clocked at 2Ghz (for 2 cores), and 1.6Ghz (for the other 2 cores), and with 2GB, 3GB and 6GB RAM variables for different memory models.
This is probably the first smartphone to bring with it, a 6GB of ginormous RAM, which might just help in running extremely heavy tasks or graphic-intense games, without a glitch.
The software running all this hardware is the Android v6.0, Marshmallow, with OnePlus’s decent User Interface on top of it.
Although there are very few Ui’s running on the Android OS, that actually look decent enough and work smoothly, we appreciate OnePlus for the and beauty they bring to the Interface.
The camera models include a 16MP back sensor, with an f/1.8 aperture for more light intake, and Laser Autofocus.
The front sensor is an 8MP shooter, with an f/2.0 aperture, and full HD Video recording.
The video capabilities for the back cam, come at a 2160 pixel at 30 frames per second.
The cameras in the previous models of the OnePlus have turned out to be pretty good, as compared to other smartphones in the similar price range, and we have no doubts about this one’s capabilities too.
To conclude, we would assume that this smartphone is definitely going to be another hit, much as the first two in the line-up, and we can’t wait to get our hands on one of these beasts.
For about 25K, this is one of the best in the range one could buy, if one is looking for a big full HD High-Res screen, a more than decent camera, and tons of memory to use to run applications and games at the same time.
We would give this one a big thumbs up! Cheers to OnePlus!
