OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6 which is the successor to the OnePlus 5T and while the OnePlus 6 is not a major upgrade when compared to the OnePlus 5T it is still a one that you would definitely want to check out. Here we brought you to the OnePlus 6 Review after 10 days of usage
While OnePlus with their “Never Settle” moto has definitely settled on this device, let me explain.
While they have added a lot of features which are important and should be in a flagship smartphone but features like wireless charging and waterproofing are lacking, and these are things that make a flagship a flagship.

OnePlus 6 Review
The OnePlus 6 for the first time has a glass sandwich design which looks premium but at the same time is pretty fragile and I have dropped it once from the waist level and nothing has happened.
While it has Gorilla Glass 5, glass is glass and it is easily breakable. I do like the design but I’m bored as you already seen it on the Galaxy S9 Plus and the iPhone X so it’s not very interesting to me but its accreditation.
The glass build looks pretty promising but we have to wait and see how it holds up with time.
The 1080p AMOLED screen is made by Samsung and it’s vivid and very clear. Honestly, it serves the purpose. It might not be ideal for things like VR but its great for daily use and watching youtube videos.
Performance Of OnePlus 6 Review
The OnePlus 6 sports a 2.8 GHz octa-core processor paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage for the base variant.Coming to the performance side of the phone. Well, OnePlus 6 lives up to its name and its tagline that is #thespeedyouneed.
It’s super snappy and its a totally different experience. Its just too fast and there’s no other way to describe it.
The RAM management is superb and I simply have no complaints except the few bugs which OnePlus has promised to fix with the software updates.
Camera And Video Samples
About Dual-Camera Setup
The Rear Camera on the OnePlus 6 sports a 20-megapixel primary camera with a secondary 16-megapixel shooter for helping with low light shots and a 16-megapixel front camera capable of shooting 4K 60FPS.
The primary camera has Optical Image Stabilization and the secondary Camera has Electronic Image Stabilization and Optical Image Stabilization. It will also come with support for the portrait mode in some time.
The phone produces true to life colours and noise does creep in low light shots which are expected.
The phone can also record slow-mo videos at 480 FPS at 720P and 240 FPS at 1080p, the latter being more practical.

The phone is the middle ground between a good budget smartphone camera and a flagship smartphone camera like the Pixel 2.

The OnePlus 6 runs on Android 8.1 with Oxygen OS on top with Android P Beta available right away.
Oxygen OS is fast as always and it strikes the perfect balance between an Android Skin and the Operating System itself.
With Minimal features added and they are pretty useful ones too. I still would like a screen recording feature like the one we get on iOS and Huawei phones with Emotion UI.

It lives up to its expectations and I don’t have any complaints.
With the New Dual Bands on the OnePlus 6, the speeds have surely improved and I have faced no issues with calls and the earpiece along with the speaker is perfectly fine.
The Battery life is decent and lasts for a day at max. I would want the battery life to be a bit longer but its fine as dash charge compensates it by charging the phone super quick.
The Haptic Engine is pretty poor and I don’t like the response. The Redmi Note 5 pro has a way better response and the support for NFC is also present.
Should you upgrade from the OnePlus 5T? The OnePlus 6 is a pretty minor upgrade from the OnePlus 5T and not a worthy upgrade.
According to me you would be better off with the OnePlus 5T and wait for the next OnePlus.
Overall I would totally buy this phone for this price but I still wish that they had brought something new to the table, checks almost all the pillars for being a great smartphone and makes buying more expensive flagships useless.
