Khiav ceev 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. Duab: Samuel Gibbs rau Tus Saib Xyuas

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 feeb, while zero to 75% took 36 feeb. 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.

lub 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, Piv txwv.

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 Hauv xov tooj ntawd 6.0.1 Marshmallow 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.

Piv txwv li, 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.

Tswvyim

  • 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.

Nqe

lub 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.

Rau kev sib piv, the 5.5in Samsung Galaxy S7 Ntug nqi £ 639, lub Google Nexus 6P nqi £ 449 thiab lub Huawei P9 Plus costs £500.

Kev txiav txim

Previous OnePlus smartphones tau yuav lav yuav tsum "flagship killers". Uas yog tseem tsis heev muaj tseeb, tab sis lub OnePlus 3 yog ib tug zoo heev smartphone luv nqi tom tsawg tshaj li ib nrab ntawm cov nqi ntawm sab saum toj rivals.

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.

Pros: all-metal, great fingerprint sensor, zoo screen, fast charging, good cameras, excellent notification slider, dual-Sim with dual standby, cheaper than rivals

Cons: no removable battery, tsis muaj expandable cia, qeeb them los ntawm uas tsis yog-khiav ceev xwb hwj chim adapters, screen tsawg res rau VR
