Features, Performance, and Reviews for the OnePlus 3

The camera function of OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 3 has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The OnePlus 3 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 3 has a relatively large battery with 3000 mAh. The OnePlus 3 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

OnePlus 3's size

The OnePlus 3 is 2.9 inches (74.7 mm) wide, 6.0 inches (152.7 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.4 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the OnePlus 3, it weighs about 158 oz (158 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the OnePlus 3, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

OnePlus 3's screen

The OnePlus 3 has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the OnePlus 3 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of OnePlus 3

The 2.15GHz+1.6GHz×4(Quad core) processing speed of the OnePlus 3 is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The OnePlus 3 has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The OnePlus 3 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

OnePlus 3's storage capacity

The OnePlus 3 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The OnePlus 3 is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

Overall assessment of OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 3 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
