The Android phone has created a buzz, since its launch with its glass body, a notch on the top, big screen and latest Snapdragon processor at a reasonable value. To further add to the smartphone’s list of compliments is the Vogue magazine cover shoot, which was done on OnePlus 6 – starring Aditi Rao Hydari.

Thus, let’s dig deeper into the details of this OnePlus smartphone…..

OnePlus 6 Review: Design & Display

OnePlus 6 is a premium device with handsome looks. It has a glass body with a notch and vertical dual rear camera. The smartphone has a solid-sturdy figure. However, if the smartphone is used without a cover it could get scratches and fingerprints.

The OnePlus 6 body looks good but can be slippery and heavy for few. The size of the screen can make it difficult to hold the device longer in one hand.

The size of the display is 6.28-inches with 1080 x 2280, 19:9 ratio and optic AMOLED display, which makes the smartphone huge. It has vibrant colours with gaming and reading mode. So, if your weekend is about Netflix and books, then the big screen of OnePlus 6 is ideal.

Another significant change that has been made in the OnePlus smartphone is shifting of the Alert slider to the right side. The bottom of the mobile phone comprises of – single speaker, USB type -c port and 3.5mm headphone socket.

OnePlus 6 Review: Performance

OnePlus 6 is truly the speed you need. With massive 8GB RAM and Snapdragon 845, the experience of using this latest entrant in the OnePlus family is flawless. A full day usage with calls, emails photography, chatting and entertainment – the OnePlus 6 doesn’t offer much trouble.

It could be considered one of the fluid devices with Oxygen OS based on Android 8.1 oreo. You can simply multitask various applications on the device. It supports dual VoLTE, which enhances the cellular call quality with network receptivity.

With 8GB RAM, the mobile phone is excellent for gamers. All the heavy racing games can be smoothly played on the smartphone.

However, the single speaker of OnePlus 6 won’t satisfy the music lovers. Also on full volume, the sound shrieks.

OnePlus 6 Review: Camera

The OnePlus 6 has a dual rear camera – the predominant 16-megapixel with optical image stabilisation and the other 20-megapixel to add depth to the photos taken on portrait mode.

It is certainly a boost from OnePlus 5t. The OnePlus 6 camera clicks great images in low light along with more clarity and details in the photos. Whereas, the second rear camera is especially used for the portrait mode. It is similar to OnePlus 5t but gives an improved performance by adding sharpness to the pictures.

While the 16-megapixel front camera of the OnePlus smartphone is not that impressive.

OnePlus 6 Review: Battery

The 3,300mAh battery in OnePlus 6 works well for the whole day. It is similar to Oneplus 5t. Whether it’s playing heavy games or binge-watching movies and TV series, the battery life of this latest flagship smartphone supports it all. Besides, its dash charger can fully charge the smartphone in a matter of an hour; dash charger is the fastest charging option one can get.

Also, while taking the Video loop test, I watched a couple of movies over wifi with full brightness and volume and the battery lasted for more than 8 hours.

Whereas, not having a wireless charging option with a glass body, makes OnePlus 6 stand step back when compared with other smartphones such as Apple and Samsung.
