OnePlus 3 Review
Ka kakaretso Score5
  • 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.

Premium aluminium 'mele, skrine se molemo 'me khamera, leholo menoana itlho, bloat-mahala Software, and a day’s battery – at half the cost of a Samsung


Tsamaisoa ka Guardian.co.ukSehlooho sena se titled “OnePlus 3 tekolo botjha: flagship fonong ha bohareng ba bo-lia fetana theko” e ngotsoe ke Samuele Gibbs, for theguardian.com on Tuesday 14th June 2016 17.00 UTC

The 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.

The 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.

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 Android 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.

Mohlala, 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.

Khamera

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.

hlokometsoeng

  • 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.

Price

The 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.

etsoe papiso, ea 5.5in Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge hloka £ 639, ea Google Nexus 6P hloka £ 449 le Huawei P9 Plus costs £500.

Qeto

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.

Pros: bohle tšepe-, leholo kutlo menoana, skrine molemo, itima lijo tjhaja, lik'hamera tse molemo, sekwahelo tsebiso e babatsehang, kopanetsoe-Sim le ba standby o kopanetsoe, theko e tlaase ho feta qothisanang lehlokoa
