2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Great build quality
  • Premium design, with magnesium alloy frame
  • Good ergonomics - the sandstone rear offers excellent grip
  • Nifty alert slider - a three-way slider button on the left edge that essentially switches between the three notification modes on Android
  • Very good, sharp display - has very good viewing angles, natural color reproduction, and decent sunlight legibility
  • Oxygen OS is a nice and light (almost-stock) Android UI, and works well - issues with earlier versions of Oxygen OS are now sorted
  • Excellent speed/performance backed by powerful hardware
  • LPDDR4 RAM gives a seamless multi-tasking experience on the phone
  • Good camera - images are sharp and have good color reproduction
  • Excellent loudspeaker
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Decent call quality
  • Decent battery life
  • Decent fingerprint scanner
  • 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
  • On the whole, the OnePlus 3 is easily one of the best and most well-rounded Android phones ever made, and the fact that it manages to be so at a price well below current flagship devices, makes it nothing short of exceptional
