OnePlus 3 Review
Note globale5
  • OnePlus précédents smartphones ont prétendu être «tueurs phares». C'est pas encore tout à fait exact, mais les OnePlus 3 est un très bon téléphone intelligent au prix de moins de la moitié du prix des meilleurs rivaux.

Corps en aluminium haut de gamme, bon écran et la caméra, grand scanner d'empreintes digitales, logiciel libre ballonnement, et la batterie d'un jour - à la moitié du coût d'un Samsung

Les OnePlus 3 est le dernier smartphone haut de gamme vendus à des prix de milieu de gamme du constructeur chinois OnePlus, qui offre une expérience raffinée pour beaucoup moins que Samsung, HTC, LG ou Apple.

Le 3 est le quatrième smartphone de OnePlus - une petite start-up chinoise vise à fournir la meilleure expérience produit possible pour beaucoup moins d'argent que ses rivaux - et est un grand pas dans toutes les directions au cours de l'année dernière OnePlus 2.

Les OnePlus 3 est un téléphone tout en métal avec un dos courbé légèrement, bords lisses et profilé avant en verre qui se rétrécit vers les bords. Il se sent très bien mis en place, vraiment bien dans la main et aussi bon que le meilleur de rivaux à prix élevé.

L'écran Full HD 5.5in est dynamique, avec des noirs inky, des couleurs riches et des blancs très bien blancs. Il est pas aussi haute résolution, et donc pas aussi pixel-dense comme Samsung Galaxy S7 bord, cependant, qui est côte à côte notable. Il est également pas très bien pour une utilisation dans les casques de réalité virtuelle, mais la plupart des acheteurs seront satisfaits de la qualité de l'écran.

L'affichage a également biseaux très étroites de chaque côté, ce qui rend les OnePlus 3 assez étroite pour un smartphone à grand écran, and more manageable than most because the overall size of the device is kept quite small. Compared to the best 5.5in smartphone available, la Samsung Galaxy S7 bord with its curved screen, the OnePlus 3 is only 2.1mm wider. It’s also only 1.8mm taller than the Samsung.

One of the things unique to OnePlus is a notification slider on the side of the phone that switches between silent, priorité et toutes les notifications. It’s great and every Android phone should have one.

Top spec is almost overkill

Les OnePlus 3 runs Qualcomm’s latest top-end smartphone chip, le Muflier 820, which will likely power most of the flagship smartphones for the remainder of 2016. It’s a pretty powerful chip that will handle almost anything anyone is likely to try to do with a smartphone.

One thing that sets the OnePlus 3 apart from the pack is its 6GB of RAM. Most smartphones have 2 or 3GB, with some such as the Galaxy S7 Edge having 4GB. The more RAM a phone has the more apps and tabs in the browser they can have open at the same time, but frankly 6GB is a bit overkill for what’s possible at the moment. Looking at the memory monitor built into Android, of the 5.6GB of RAM available, I barely ever used more than 3.5GB. As with computers, cependant, you’re only ever going to need more memory as things progress, so you could look at it as future-proofing.

Les OnePlus 3 was snappy and performed well throughout my testing, with little in the way of noticeable lag or stutter anywhere. It even handled 30-minute gaming sessions without getting too hot on a day when ambient temperature hit 25C.

Used as my primary device with four hours of listening to music through Bluetooth headphones, trois heures de navigation passées ou en utilisant applications, jeux occasionnels et de prendre des photos, avec des centaines de notifications push tout au long de la journée, the OnePlus 3 lasted just over 24 heures entre les charges.

I noticed that battery life during the day was quite goodon par with some of the more power efficient smartphonesbut that standby time overnight was poor, losing between 12 et 16% of charge while left on silent on a bedside table for seven hours. Most devices lose around 1% of charge per hour.

Dash Charge

Dash Charge looks and operates just like any other fast charging solution, but the phone doesn’t get hot and you can use it while it charges and still top it up at the maximum rate. Photographie: Samuel Gibbs pour le Guardian

OnePlus has licensed sister Chinese smartphone manufacture Oppo’s fast charging technology, which operates differently than most other quick charging solutions by moving the fast charging chips to the power adapter, rather than the phone. The Dash Charge system moves the largest source of heat during charging from the cramped confines of the phone near the battery to something plugged into the wall, meaning the phone can charge faster without you having to worry about it overheating.

Charging from zero to 100% took 72 procès-verbal, while zero to 75% took 36 procès-verbal. That’s not a lot faster than the best of the rest when not in use. The difference is that the phone didn’t heat up at all, and could be used like normal without impacting the charging rate. Most devices get too hot and must slow down the charging speed, particularly when someone is using the device with the screen on.

The downside is that if you charge the OnePlus 3 via any non Dash-charge compatible power adapters, such as a computer, the phone charges at the slow, normal rate. Dash chargers cost £16 eachso it’s worth buying another with the phone.

Les OnePlus 3 is also a dual-Sim phone, which is quite rare in the UK, meaning you can have two different plans, networks and phone numbers connecting to one phoneuseful for carrying a work phone and personal phone in one device, par exemple.

Better still, it can support two Sim cards in standby simultaneously, which means both cards can be connected to a 4G/3G network at the same time. Most only support one card in 2G mode, discounting networks such as the UK’s Three, which do not use a 2G signal.

OxygenOS, unless you don’t like it

OnePlus produces a custom version of Android called OxygenOS. The latest version is based on Androïde 6.0.1 Guimauve and on the face of it looks no different from the version of Android running on Google’s Nexus smartphones.

OxygenOS has a slightly different launcher with the company’s so-called Shelf on the left-most homescreen panea place for putting widgets, apps icons and the weather. Users can also have on-screen navigation buttons, or using the capacitive touch ones below the screen to save space as well as customise what they do.

Par exemple, I set a double tap of the recently used apps button to immediate switch to the last used appa feature that’s been added to the next version of Android N. A selection of other gestures, as well as an ambient display mode that wakes the screen when notifications come in or uses the camera to detect when your hand is over the screen to wake up, are also available.

OxygenOS is one of the better, stripped back and bloat-free versions of Android.

The home button functions as a fingerprint scanner, which is fast and responsive. Most of the time it would recognise my thumb first time, but occasionally would struggle when my thumb didn’t quite cover the whole sensor at odd angles.

It is significantly improved over the OnePlus 2, and only slightly worse than the very best from Huawei.

The main 16-megapixel camera on the back is capable of some pretty good shots across varied lighting conditions. With good lighting the camera produces detailed pictures with fairly lifelike colours without much trouble. In difficult lighting conditions, such as those under artificial light, the images can look a bit grainy at full crop.

It’s not quite the best camera available, but it’s still up there with smartphones costing half as much again.

The camera app is relatively simple to use to get good pictures, and has full manual controls with RAW support if so desired. Slow motion 720p video at 120fps is also available, with 4K recording at 30fps if required.

The 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front produces some of the most detailed selfies I’ve seen, even in relatively difficult lightning conditions.


  • The grey aluminium has a slight red tint to it in certain lights
  • The tiny bezels made it easier to hold, but I found it quite easy to activate the capacitive navigation buttons with my palm
  • Silencing the phone with the notification slider is easy and fast
  • Dash Chargers power other devices up to 2A, which is normal charging rate
  • OnePlus sells a Dash car charger for £25
  • It’s got NFC, which the OnePlus 2 oddly didn’tgood for Android Pay
  • The phone ships with an unlocked bootloader making it easier to load custom Android versions, should you not like OxygenOS
  • It comes with a screen protector pre-installed, but like most screen protectors on contoured or curved glass, stands out like a sore thumb.

Les OnePlus 3 costs £309 ($399) available in grey with a gold colour available later. The phone will be available straight from OnePlus without the company’s controversial invite system.

En comparaison, le 5.5in Samsung Galaxy S7 bord coûte 639 £, la Google Nexus 6P coûte £ 449 et Huawei P9 Plus costs £500.


OnePlus précédents smartphones ont prétendu être «tueurs phares». C'est pas encore tout à fait exact, mais les OnePlus 3 est un très bon téléphone intelligent au prix de moins de la moitié du prix des meilleurs rivaux.

For your £309 you get a beautiful, well-made metal smartphone, with reasonable battery life, good screen and cameras, and snappy performance. You also get dual-Sim support and 64GB of storage built in. It is easily the best smartphone OnePlus has made.

The biggest complaint of previous OnePlus smartphones was how difficult they were to actually buy, which shouldn’t be the case any more, while the company has worked hard to improve support options.

There’s still a question over the speed of software updates, but for a top-spec smartphone at a mid-range price, you don’t get much better than the OnePlus 3.

Avantages: tout métal, grand capteur d'empreintes digitales, bon écran, recharge rapide, bonnes caméras, un excellent curseur de notification, Dual Sim avec double veille, moins cher que ses concurrents

Moins: pas de batterie amovible, pas de stockage extensible, charge lente des adaptateurs de puissance de charge non-Dash, écran basse résolution pour VR
