I've been a one plus fanatic since 2014. I absolutely love their phones and had the chance to get a 1+ 6 last week for the Black Friday sale at only 329, new. This is a great value for money proposition. The OS is great, the cameras are both great. Super fast, and excellent quality. In my view one of the best Androids on the market, bar none. Had the chance to go for something else (Google Pixel 3a for instance) while changing phones, but I am really convinced by the value of this brand and it has consistently delivered for me. A deciding factor for me is the headphone jack, which is missing in most phones today and I still enjoy having one for now. The feel of the phone is nice, black gloss and relatively light for the hand, but excellent screen real estate size. Highly recommended.
I'm a massive fan of OnePlus. I had the OnePlus 5 when it originally came out. I lived it all the way until I broke it accidentally at work. I ended up opting for a cheaper Lenovo phone and wasn't impress so lo and behold I'm back for the OnePlus 6. I must say it's not a massive jump over the 5 but to make me happy it doesn't need to be tbh. Fairly priced and just a fantastic phone.
Had this phone about six or seven months now and I'm very happy with it. Great build quality, excellent performance, clean interface and a HEADPHONE JACK!
Fingerprint scanner isn't the most accurate I've used and the screen could be a bit brighter in direct sunlight but these are minor gripes. It's an excellent phone for the money.
I have contemplated buying this phone for a long time, I've been a big fan of OnePlus and have been following the iterations of the smartphones for a few years now. Finally I've made the switch from an iPhone 6s Plus to, in my opinion "The perfect phone" OnePlus have to offer. I have to admit, the decision to switch was a difficult one as I have been a loyal Apple customer for many years, the deal breaker was the battery life for me. The iPhone I was using was just not cut out for all day use, I would have to stop what I was doing every day just to look for a charger or socket. The OnePlus solved all these problems for me, no longer do I need to constantly look at the battery percentage as the phone consistently lasts for a full day of use only needing to charge once every night. Even during high usage, I can always rely on the OnePlus dash charge to juice up the phone in just a few minutes. The reason I did not decide to purchase the newer OnePlus 6T was purely because of the fact that it was more expensive and it did not include a physical fingerprint sensor. Upon reading the many reviews of the 6T, the in-display fingerprint sensor was actually a downgrade from the sensor the 6 had to offer.
The build quality of this device is outstanding, comparable to Samsung phones. I decided to purchase the mirror black version which is stunning to look at, however as soon as you start touching it, it quickly attracts fingerprints and is prone to scratches. A case is highly recommended. Switching from the iPhone 6s Plus, the weight of the OnePlus 6 is far lighter and easier to hold. Especially at night, when you are trying to hold it whilst in bed.
The phone supports dual sim usage, which means you can put two sim cards (Nano) in the phone and use both of them. You can customise the usage of each SIM card, for example, you can select a SIM that you want to use for mobile data. Personally I love this feature as Apple have not offered it until the recent release of their iPhone X, but in reality it is nothing new as many phone manufacturers have adopted this.
Moving on to the display itself, it measures 6.28 inches and is a stunning optic AMOLED display, perhaps not as stunning as the HDR equipped iPhone XS, but it will definitely satisfy your visual cravings nevertheless. It has a notch similar to the iPhone X but is far shorter in length than expected. This allows more notification and status icons to appear on either side of the notch, far more functional than it's more expensive rival. Watching videos in landscape mode does invite the OS to present black bars on either side of the video. To zoom and magnify the video to full screen mode, you need to use a 2 finger reverse pinch to zoom gesture to get the video to fill the entire screen, this however presents the problem of the notch covering a small portion of the content. In my opinion it is not that noticeable and is definitely not enough to be a deal breaker. In addition, the OnePlus 6 has no home button like the iPhone I had, therefore there is on screen controls to access three main functions: back, home and recent apps. You can also change this to swipe gestures which in my opinion is far more intuitive. The gestures involve swiping up from the centre of the bottom of the screen to return to the home screen and swiping from either the left or the right of the bottom of the screen to go back. This can take a while to get used to if your coming from an Apple device but once you've learned it, it will become second nature.
The operating system is neither here or there as most modern smartphones come with a decent OS and at the end of the day is purely based on preference.
In terms of hardware, the devices comes equipped with 2 cameras, a 16MP and a 20MP camera lens. Although I am not entirely sure of the purpose of having 2 cameras if neither of them are telephoto or wide angle, I can say that the overall image quality is decent, but by no means the best out there. The iPhone cameras and Pixel cameras are definitely somewhat better in term of image quality, contrast and low light performance. The front facing camera is also 16MP and is used for the facial recognition to unlock your phone. I can safely say it is one of, if no the fastest facial scanner on the market. It is so fast that sometimes you do not even see your lock screen, it just unlocks straight to your home screen. Definitely useful for those who need to unlock their phones fast. In terms of security, it perhaps does sacrifice some security for the speed, as it may not be as secure as Face ID that Apple offers. Similarly, the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone is just as fast, it does struggle to recognise your fingerprint edges sometimes but often it will unlock your phone in the blink of an eye. The USB C port located at the bottom of the phone is brilliant, allows me to carry only one wire for my MacBook and phone and the inclusive of the dash charge feature means I only need to charge for a few minutes to give me a substantial amount of battery. Another reason I decided to pick this model over the 6T is the fact that this device still has the headphone jack which is important to me as I do not have a pair of wireless of USB C headphones and have no intention of purchasing them currently. The speakers on this phone are similar to the iPhone 6s Plus in that they operate from the bottom of the phone and are single outputs, this means you can easily distort, muffle or completely mute the sound by covering the speaker grills. A stereo speaker set would definitely be a desirable option for this phone. Another noticeable thing I found with the sound is that the volume rocker on the side tends to have very minor effects to the sound itself, for instance, clicking the volume up button once has little to no affect from my perspective. You really do have to press it a few times to notice the difference in volume.
Overall, I love this phone and chose it because of it's price, amazing battery life, sleek design, headphone jack, fast unlock. The number of useful features it has over its competitors for the price is countless and it really has shown it's worth over the past few months. The same cannot be said for its successors the 6T, 7 and 7 pro as the price has started to enter premium territory and they are starting to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple. All in all, would definitely recommend.
First time using a OnePlus device and I have to say I'm impressed.
If you want speed, simplicity and a brilliant all rounder this phone is a good choice.
Nice clear screen
One of the fastest fingerprint readers
Face unlock is the fastest I've ever seen
Oxygen os is brilliant
Camera is quite good but you can install gcam to improve it further
Audio isnt great, it's made even worse by the odd placement of the speaker.
I've had to uninstall a few dodgy system apps using adb, i can only presume they are Chinese apps used for analytical purposes, they aren't necessary to use the phone therefore they are bloatware.
Software updates are quite slow which is a major disappointment, what's the point in stock if you don't get quick updates.
First of all the look and feel of this phone is top notch however there are a few issues in my opinion;
1. Face ID is really bad (to the point I didn't use it).
2.poor speaker and earpiece
3. Really disliked the camera
4. Buggy software made it reboot about ten times a day
So overall great looking and feeling but a few features lack todays standard of smartphones
