2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Stylish, premium design, and striking aesthetics - curved-edge metal frame with both front and back glass - with a 15-layer "light-catching finish" for the back that plays with ambient light in a way that looks great!
  • Incredibly fast, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Very good, bright display
  • Huawei's EMUI looks good, and a has an iPhone-like app-drawer-less interface
  • Very good speed/performance
  • Superlative rear camera with a dual lens setup - overall, one of the best cameras on a smartphone - and comparable to the very good camera of it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Good front camera, too
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Good battery life - should get you through the day comfortably - although not as good as it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Fast charging support (full recharge in under 100 minutes) - although again not as fast as the "dash charging" on OnePlus 3
  • 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
  • Incredibly fast and accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Chamfered details around the display and charging port catch and reflect light to add to the looks
  • Bright, sharp AMOLED display
  • OnePlus' useful notification toggle is carried over from the previous OnePlus device, and is handy as ever
  • 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
  • Good battery life that is helped by good software optimizations - lasts the whole day even with heavy use
  • 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
  • Decent loudspeaker, with good volume levels
  • Excellent audio quality via headphones
  • 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
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • All glass design attracts smudges/ fingerprints and is slippery (so using a case is a good idea)
  • While the phone performance is pretty good, it doesn't hold up against the top performing Snapdragon 820 phones that rule the market currently
  • Video recording quality could be better

No Major Negatives!
