Going to the design, it is withal oculus catching as well as flauntable. The corporation brushed aluminum torso w/ arching dorsum style, textured buttons, as well as 2.5D drinking glass top are super sleek. It is also unbelievably sparse for a handset w/ beastly configuration. Our solely fry travelling steal is its protruding primary camera.

The OnePlus 3T is very flauntable!

Moving on how it feels inwards the hands, nosotros withal enjoyed that its incredibly lite as well as comfortable to hold. For us, its upward to the bird of Huawei P9 inwards damage of ergonomics as well as the joy of belongings it. It isn’t as well as then slippery to concur equally well.

Then aside from its all-easy to hit properly placed buttons as well as ports, the OnePlus 3T withal has the useful textured soundless push clit at left. Personally, I also liked that it isn’t using a physical domicile push clit / fingerprint scanner anymore.

However, there’s a chip of  learning crease to acquire used to. The physical capacitive buttons isn’t lit as well as doesn’t fifty-fifty bring markings.

Initial findings

1. The blueprint is withal the same. If you lot had the former OnePlus 3, you’ll detect it boring. But, if you’re a novel OnePlus user, you’ll live on amazed past times its bird of craftsmanship for a device this affordable. Then fifty-fifty if its concealment isn’t on QHD yet, the FHD Optic AMOLED panel it used produced around real accurate color reproduction.

2. Even if you lot tell that this is a 2016 handset, no 1 tin deny that its specs is withal top-notch as well as tin withal compete w/ almost of the best inwards a head-to-head battle. On paper, it fifty-fifty has to a greater extent than RAM than the LG G6 w/ similar Snapdragon 821 chip. Only the newly announced Samsung Milky Way S8 series as well as Sony Xperia XZ premium is slightly ahead on it on processor used. We also liked the fact that OnePlus upgraded its battery performance, nosotros tin experience the difference.
3. We also noticed that nosotros got our unit of measurement at Android 7.0 Nougat w/ Oxygen OS 4.0.3 out of the box instead of the listed Marshmallow OS inwards almost of the spec-sheets nosotros saw. That’s a expert affair equally nosotros easily felt its improvement inwards snappiness compared with the older OnePlus 3. The icons also looked better.
4. The primary photographic idiot box camera functioning is withal the same. For stills, it tin withal contend upward with almost of the flagships on around conditions. For videos, its correct upward at that topographic point with the likes of ZenFone iii Zoom inwards quality. For selfies, its upgraded xvi MP front end photographic idiot box camera ranks with the nicest nosotros saw. It reminds us of the ageing OPPO F1 Plus inwards quality.
5. OTG via USB Type C work, opposite charging is present, LED notification is on top, as well as capacitive keys isn’t lit.

As of the moment

Its already Apr of 2017, but nosotros withal call back that the OnePlus 3T rank with the best value for coin outcry upward inwards the world, pound per pound. The specs to cost to build ratio is nearly unmatched as well as this tin withal go along upward with almost of the real best devices out there.

We are withal non done with our review as well as testing, but equally early on equally instantly nosotros believe that this is the affordable flagship to get.
