2-minute Review [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
  • 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
  • Beautiful, polished-to-perfection, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail - and with its unique "edge" screen, the S7 Edge is a sight to behold
  • Compact for a 5.5 incher
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Gorgeous, large, curved screen, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The extra navigation tools on the "edge" are definitely useful when used judiciously
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions - easily one of the best around
  • Brilliant, beast of a battery life, that takes it a notch above the already excellent battery life of the Galaxy S7
  • microSD storage slot
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality

No Major Negatives!

  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
