प्रिमियम एल्यूमीनियम शरीर, राम्रो स्क्रिन र क्यामेरा, ठूलो औंठाछाप स्क्यानर, ब्लोट-मुक्त सफ्टवेयर, and a day’s battery – at half the cost of a Samsung
यो OnePlus 3 is the latest top-end smartphone sold at mid-range prices from Chinese manufacturer OnePlus, which offers a refined experience for considerably less than Samsung, HTC, LG or Apple.
यो 3 is the fourth smartphone from OnePlus – a small Chinese startup aiming to provide the best experience possible product for significantly less money than rivals – and is a big step in all directions over last year’s OnePlus 2.
Aluminium top to bottom
यो OnePlus 3 एउटा अलिकति फिर्ता बाङ्गो सबै-धातु फोन छ, चिल्लो किनारा र contoured ग्लास अगाडि कि किनाराको तिर बन्द tapers. यो धेरै राम्रो तरिकाले सँगै राख्न महसुस, साँच्चै हातमा ठूलो र उच्च-मूल्य प्रतिद्वन्द्वी देखि धेरै राम्रो असल.

प्रदर्शन पनि धेरै संकीर्ण bezels या त पक्ष छ, जो OnePlus बनाउँछ 3 एकदम ठूलो जांच स्मार्टफोन लागि संकीर्ण, and more manageable than most because the overall size of the device is kept quite small. Compared to the best 5.5in smartphone available, को सैमसंग ग्यालेक्सी S7 एज 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, प्राथमिकता र सबै सूचनाहरू. It’s great and every Android phone should have one.

Top spec is almost overkill
यो OnePlus 3 runs Qualcomm’s latest top-end smartphone chip, को Snapdragon 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, तथापि, you’re only ever going to need more memory as things progress, so you could look at it as future-proofing.
यो 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, तीन घण्टा बिताए ब्राउजिङ वा प्रयोग अनुप्रयोगहरू, नियमित खेल र लिएर फोटो, दिन भर सूचनाहरू सयौं, the OnePlus 3 lasted just over 24 शुल्क बीच घण्टा.
I noticed that battery life during the day was quite good – on par with some of the more power efficient smartphones – but that standby time overnight was poor, losing between 12 र 16% of charge while left on silent on a bedside table for seven hours. Most devices lose around 1% of charge per hour.
OnePlus लाइसेन्स छ बहिनी चिनियाँ स्मार्टफोन OPPO गरेको छिटो चार्ज प्रविधि निर्माण, जो शक्ति एडप्टरमा छिटो चार्ज चिप्स सारेर अन्य छिटो चार्ज समाधान भन्दा फरक संचालित, बरु फोन भन्दा. यो ड्यास शुल्क सिस्टम पर्खाल प्लग कुरा गर्न ब्याट्री नजिकै फोन को cramped दायरे देखि चार्ज समयमा गर्मी को सबै भन्दा ठूलो स्रोत उत्प्रेरित गर्छ, फोन तपाईं यसलाई तात्दै चिन्ता बिना छिटो चार्ज गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ अर्थ.
शून्य देखि चार्ज गर्न 100% गरे 72 मिनेट, जबकि शून्य 75% गरे 36 मिनेट. 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 each – so it’s worth buying another with the phone.
यो 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 phone – useful for carrying a work phone and personal phone in one device, उदाहरणका लागि.
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 एन्ड्रोइड 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 pane – a 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.
उदाहरणका लागि, I set a double tap of the recently used apps button to immediate switch to the last used app – a 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.
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’t – good 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.
यो 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.
Previous OnePlus smartphones have claimed to be “flagship killers”. That’s still not quite accurate, but the OnePlus 3 is a very good smartphone priced at less than half the price of top 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.
