Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality
  • Premium, high-end aluminum unibody design that gives the phone a truly elevated aesthetic compared to its predecessors
  • Super sleek at 7.35mm
  • Chamfered details around the display and charging port catch and reflect light to add to the looks
  • OnePlus' useful notification toggle is carried over from the previous OnePlus device, and is handy as ever
  • Bright, sharp AMOLED display
  • Oxygen OS UI keeps things nice, simple, and close to stock Android, is quite stable, and adds useful touches like the "shelf" homescreen, as well as handy customization options for power users - overall it works very well, and doesn't include any bloatware
  • Breathtaking, and flagship-beating performance backed by powerful hardware and an astounding 6GB of RAM
  • Excellent heat management - the phone doesn't get hot even when put under high stress levels
  • Very good camera, that compares well with the top flagship phones
  • Camera interface is fast, minimalistic, and intuitive
  • Support for 4K video, as well as time-lapse and slow-motion movies
  • Front camera is excellent too
  • Good battery life that is helped by good software optimizations - lasts the whole day even with heavy use
  • Super quick charging battery (OnePlus calls it "Dash Charging") that can completely charge the phone from 0 to 100% in a little more than 1 hour, beating other "quick charging" phones by a good margin
  • Incredibly fast and accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Decent loudspeaker, with good volume levels
  • Excellent audio quality via headphones
  • Premium metal design, with amazing attention to detail
  • Top-notch build quality
  • Brilliant in-hand feel, with edges that curve perfectly
  • Good display with vivid colors, wide viewing angles, and good sunlight visibility
  • MIUI is one of the better interfaces built over Android, and has a lot of useful functionality, but is still simple to use
  • Top-level, power packed performance with best-in-class hardware - and 3GB of RAM results in very good multi-tasking performance too
  • Excellent battery life - this phone is an absolute road-runner
  • Excellent, responsive fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The camera forms a distinct, thick bulge at the back of the phone
  • Camera is pretty decent, but could have been better
