The best OnePlus smartphones

The OnePlus brand is a relatively young player in the mobile technology market, but at the same time existing since 2014, he managed not only to make a name for himself, but also to enter the TOP of the best manufacturers. The fact is that already at the moment of appearance, the company chose a cunning strategy of distribution and creation of gadgets, which to this day gives excellent results.

The OnePlus company began its history with the release of a smartphone, which, in terms of parameters, appearance and cost, put most of its competitors on its shoulder blades, including Apple and Samsung devices. The leaders of the newly created brand did not follow the path of Xiaomi by increasing the number of models and 5 years after the formation, they adhere to tactics - two announcements a year. That is, every year the brand produces two devices, which in most cases do not differ much from each other. At the same time, the firm does not wind up the price tags and makes limited quantities, thereby fueling interest.

Not having a large number of devices, the Chinese manufacturer continues to produce quite old models that remain in demand and may well argue with more modern gadgets. OnePlus smartphones available for purchase are presented in the review below.

  • Screen: AMOLED, 5.5 inches, FHD
  • Processor: Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
  • Memory (ROM / RAM): 6/64 GB
  • Camera (main / front): 16/8 MP

OnePlus 3 is the company's third smartphone released in 2016. If you look back, you can remember how a model called One created a sensation and became a true killer of the flagships, the second device turned out to be expensive and not the most logical in certain engineering points. The third phone was waited by many and feared that the brand could not. A company that produces one or two vehicles per year is at great risk. If the model does not go to the masses, it is extremely easy to go bankrupt and cease to exist. OnePlus 3 did not become the best device of the year, but for those who were looking for the best ratio of parameters and price, as well as an adequate alternative to expensive flagships from famous manufacturers, it became the most suitable option.

So, the gadget released in 2016 by a little-known Chinese brand got a different design from its competitors, a metal case, a good processor, an excellent configuration of high-speed memory (one of the first smartphones with 6 GB of RAM), high-quality cameras from Sony , a full set of wireless interfaces , including NFC , as well as fast battery charging . In other words, in 2016, OnePlus released a phone that looks quite decent on iron in 2019. At the same time, at the time of release, the manufacturer asked for the gadget not the biggest money - about 30,000 rubles when buying a phone abroad, in Russian stores the cost reached 35,000 rubles.

Of course, at the time of this writing, the three on the price tag is inferior to many devices from competitors, but for those who do not want to use a large glass or plastic device with fashionable bangs and FullView displays, OnePlus 3 will be the best choice.

Advantages:

  • Excellent memory storage.
  • NFC availability.
  • Metal case.
  • Quality cameras from Sony.
  • Quick charge.
  • Small size.
  • Type-C for charging and syncing.
  • AMOLED display with a classic aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 4 coating.

Disadvantages:

  • Old processor.
  • Non-modern appearance.
  • The screen is not very accurate.

Oneplus 3T

  • Screen: AMOLED, 5.5 inches, FHD
  • Processor: Snapdragon 821 MSM8996
  • Memory (ROM / RAM): 6 GB and 64/128 GB
  • Camera (main / front): 16/16 Mp
  • Battery: 3400 mAh
  • Operating system: Android 8.0

Price: from 24 940 rubles.

OnePlus 3T came out with a short break after the troika and did not receive significant changes. They touched the camera, battery and chipset. Design, wireless interfaces and the screen remained the same, so briefly go through the changes.

3T delivered the most powerful processor in 2016 - Snapdragon 821 (also relevant in 2019), added a 6/128 GB memory version, slightly increased the battery capacity - from 3000 to 3400 mAh and changed the front camera - instead of 8 megapixel from Sony, they used 16 megapixel Samsung. In fact, the company improved the already good phone and made it even more powerful.

At the moment, the difference between 3 and 3T for money is extremely small, but in the second case, the user will feel the difference in performance. It is recommended to choose it if newer and more relevant gadgets are not suitable for any reason.

Advantages:

  • Excellent memory storage.
  • NFC availability.
  • Metal case.
  • Quality cameras from Sony and Samsung.
  • Quick charge.
  • Small size.
  • Type-C for charging and syncing.
  • AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4.

Disadvantages:

  • Non-modern appearance.
  • Old OS.

Oneplus 5

  • Screen: AMOLED, 5.5 inches, FHD
  • Processor: Snapdragon 835 MSM8998
  • Memory (ROM / RAM): 6/8 GB and 64/128 GB
  • Camera (main / front): 16 + 20/16 Mp
  • Battery: 3300 mAh
  • Operating system: Android 8.1

Price: from 24 989 rubles.

Another smartphone from OnePlus was released in 2017. Earlier, the brand was inspired by the design of Huawei and HTC , then the top five were made to some extent in the image of Apple. At least the layout of elements and rounded shapes strongly resemble American products. As before, they chose aviation aluminum as the case material, bought the AMOLED matrices from Samsung and closed them with Gorilla Glass 5 glass. OnePlus does not back off from its practice of putting all the best - the device received the 2017 Snapdragon 835 top chipset, high-speed memory, and the operational volume now began to reach 8 GB.

Compared to 3T, the battery has become a little less - 3300 mAh and it may seem that this is not enough for a modern gadget, but the combination of an energy efficient processor and display has done its job - the phone lives a working day even under severe loads. Nowhere is fast charging, the NFC chip, the Type-C connector, the fingerprint sensor. The cameras are again being used by Sony - 1 in front and 2 behind. The dual module has a wide-angle sensor and a dual optical zoom lens. The quality of the pictures is excellent, there are no questions for them.

OnePlus 5 turned out to be an excellent smartphone, but as they say without zest. It is good in almost all criteria and has everything that active users need. The downside is that at the start of sales, it was comparable in value to numerous eminent competitors Samsung, Meizu , Huawei and this was the reason to think - and does it make sense to take a good, but not the most famous Chinese or choose the same for the same money an option that will not yield to the filling.

Advantages:

  • Powerful chipset.
  • Excellent display with lots of settings.
  • Excellent memory storage.
  • NFC availability.
  • Fast charging and good autonomy.
  • High-quality photo and video.

Disadvantages:

  • Unremarkable design.
  • Not the most current OS for 2019.

Oneplus 5t

  • Screen: AMOLED, 6.01 inches, 1080 * 2160
  • Processor: Snapdragon 835 MSM8998
  • Memory (ROM / RAM): 6/8 GB and 64/128 GB
  • Camera (main / front): 16 + 20/16 Mp
  • Battery: 3300 mAh
  • Operating system: Android 8.0

Price: from 25,590 rubles.

The model with the “T” index in the title came out six months after the usual five and traditionally the company made a minimum of changes that buyers did not like. From the point of view of the filling, practically nothing has changed. The company made the display diagonal more and changed the aspect ratio - now it is 18: 9 . To save space, the fingerprint scanner has moved from the physical button under the screen to the back panel. Visually, this is interesting, since previously the lid seemed too empty. At the same time, ergonomics became worse - the device and strives to slip out of hand.

The second change affected the camera. The additional module of the main camera previously had an optical approximation and made extremely interesting pictures. In 5T, the optical zoom was removed, but they reduced the size of the pixels — that is, in fact, the additional function was gone, but instead they offered nothing. Engineers OnePlus explained that the additional module with reduced pixels is better at night shooting and this is more relevant for buyers than the telephoto lens.

No other changes have occurred. 5T made for fans of large displays. With a practically similar cost with a simple five, users do not have the painful choice of whether to overpay or not for the big screen.

Advantages:

  • Powerful chipset.
  • Large display with excellent resolution.
  • A huge amount of memory.
  • NFC availability.
  • Fast charging and excellent autonomy.
  • Case included.
  • Unlock on face.

Disadvantages:

  • Unsuccessful ergonomics - the phone is very slippery.
  • Not the most current OS for 2019.
  • The camera in the opinion of many has become less interesting in features.
  • There is no slot for microSD (however, the internal memory is quite enough).

Oneplus 6

  • Screen: AMOLED, 6.28 inches, 1080 * 2280
  • Processor: Snapdragon 845
  • Memory (ROM / RAM): 6/8 GB and 64/128/256 GB
  • Camera (main / front): 16 + 20/16 Mp
  • Battery: 3300 mAh
  • Operating system: Android 8.1

Price: from 27,890 rubles.

As the release of new models OnePlus loses its revolutionary spirit. If earlier the company's goal was to “tear competitors to shreds”, then by 2018 it changed to the desire to produce quality devices without frills. In terms of performance, the 6-ka is very similar to the previous 5T phone. The screen diagonal has increased, the back cover together with the metal has become glass with the Gorilla Glass 5 coating. At the same time, the ergonomics have remained extremely unsuccessful - the gadget is slippery and, when vibrated, tries to move out from any surface. In addition, the glass on the back panel is extremely branded - prints appear instantly, since it is easy to wash them. From the visual changes it should be noted the movement of the main camera - from the corner it moved to the central part. Additionally changed the location of controls. OnePlus 6, in contrast to the previous models, was released in matte black and gloss black. Previously, instead of gloss you could buy a gold version.

There are no significant changes in the filling. As always, there is a top processor at the time of release, an enormous amount of memory (version 256 GB appeared), there are all modern sensors and interfaces. Pleasantly pleased with the fact that, unlike competitors, OnePlus did not remove the headphone jack. In the network you can find information that the phone has moisture protection - there is a special layer that prevents moisture from penetrating the case, however, no protection class is specified in the specifications, and therefore it should be treated with care - it is not recommended to bathe the gadget. The display received an aspect ratio of 19: 9, there is a cutout for the camera, which can be hidden through the settings. The function is not unique, but many liked it. The camera in the new set from 5T, but added a bonus optical stabilization. This is very useful, especially when shooting video.

In general, it turns out that the company has released another good-quality smartphone, which will appeal to those who are not looking for design and appearance frills, but want to buy a great device. There are plenty of competitors, but the device is for sale and is of interest, despite the fact that in some places it seems - something is missing in it.

Advantages:

  • Top processor.
  • Excellent amount of memory.
  • Good autonomy and fast charging.
  • A complete set of wireless interfaces.
  • High-quality camera with optical stabilizer.
  • Fingerprint scanner and unlock on the face.
  • High-quality AMOLED display with a large diagonal and properly tuned.

Disadvantages:

  • Boring design.
  • Brand surface.
  • There is no possibility to expand the memory.
  • Bad ergonomics - slippery body.

Oneplus 6T

  • Screen: AMOLED, 6.41 inches, 1080 * 2340
  • Processor: Snapdragon 845
  • Memory (ROM / RAM): 6/8 GB and 128/256 GB
  • Camera (main / front): 16 + 20/16 Mp
  • Battery: 3700 mAh
  • Operating system: Android 9.0

Price: from 33,890 rubles.

6T is the newest and latest smartphone brand. His release was marked by the statement of the OnePlus leaders that now they will not release limited editions, but will be available almost everywhere and in large quantities. Moreover, the company refuses the title of a startup, that is, from now on, the development of new gadgets will be conducted not at the expense of the money that was collected on crowdfunding platforms, but with funds earned from sales and received from investors. This means that the policy of creating devices is changing - now the opinion of customers will be taken into account less. And it can be seen on the new 6T. As always, she doesn’t have much difference from the six in the filling. The same processor, similar memory, wireless interfaces and camera. However, there are changes, they are described below.

With the growth of the diagonal, the company came to the conclusion that it was necessary to increase the battery - it became larger, it provides autonomy for a full working day. The display has lost an eyebrow, but received a drop-like cut. This decision led to the fact that the company got rid of the LED-indicator of events - it would seem a trifle, but very convenient and its absence is annoying. This is despite the fact that company executives at the OnePlus 6 presentation promised not to touch it. The second unpleasant change is the lack of a 3.5 connector, there is an adapter with a Type-C included, but it is hardly possible to find a person whom it will please. The finger scanner has moved under the screen. According to the statements of engineers - this is the fastest dactyloscope located under the display of the currently existing in the world. None of the competitors have yet been able to offer a similar unlock speed. The latest change is new work algorithms aimed at improving portrait and night shooting.

Advantages:

  • Top processor.
  • Excellent amount of memory.
  • Good autonomy and fast charging.
  • A complete set of wireless interfaces.
  • High-quality camera with optical stabilizer.
  • Fingerprint scanner under the display.
  • High-quality AMOLED display.
  • Improved algorithms for shooting at night.

Disadvantages:

  • Boring design.
  • Marked case.
  • There is no possibility to expand the memory.
  • Unsuccessful ergonomics.
  • No moisture protection.
  • No wireless charging .
  • No 3.5 connector.
  • No notification indicator.
