OnePlus is as said in my previous article a Chinese brand
smartphone and headphones created in 2013. Following the first two
generations of smartphone. The brand had to develop and confirm its
lowcost luxury image and value for money almost
Let's go into more detail about these models that may have surprised or
to reinforce the idea they had of OnePlus.
Three years after the beginning of its existence, OnePlus releases its famous
OnePlus 3. After a mixed OnePlus 2 and promising OnePlus X, the brand
resurfaces with the OnePlus 3 again high-end!
Here are the characteristics of this technological monster:
Operating system: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with a
OxygenOS 3.1.1 interface specific to OnePlus
Screen: 5.57 inches with an Amoled system and a full HD definition
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (MSM 8996)
Core: 2 x Kryo @ 2.2 GHz and 2 x KRYO @ 1.6 GHz
Physical memory: 64 Go
Cameras: 16 Megapixels with optical back-end stabilization
and video 4K - 8 megapixels in front
NFC present contrary to the old models
Price : 399€
The OnePlus unlike its predecessors does not contain any
important concession. It is also powerful in all areas see
more powerful than some high-end models far exceeding
The design is above all the big improvement. The smartphone is
qualifiable as pretty unlike the previous ones. OnePlus really
working on the visual aspect of his phone in order to make beautiful and
nice that was actually missing on the OnePlus 2 for example. However
the design is not very original because it is strongly inspired by others
smartphone brands. Comparison with competitors makes no difference
Following the continuity of the OnePlus 2, the OnePlus 3 is equipped with a
Fingerprint reader acting as Home button. It is
also very easy to add fingerprints for
unlock your smartphone. The sensor is very efficient and effective
for different uses. Whatever the meaning of your finger
on it, the reader will recognize your print with a bluffing ease

rivals all the best smartphones of the time on
The OnePlus camera has also evolved to make room for
a rather exceptional quality of photography. Despite an application of
basic photography the image quality of OnePlus 3 is pretty
The OnePlus 3 battery is back on a more classic model to
3000 mAh. This model fits about a whole day of use, but
not really anymore if you use it a lot. However the advantage of
OnePlus compared to its direct competitors is that it benefits from a
FastCharge. This FastCharge allows a quick update of the
battery. In about an hour we can go from 0 to 100% of
battery. This system is really very interesting when the user is
in a hurry and needs to quickly recharge his phone.
With the competition, the OnePlus 3 is doing extremely well. By
example the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, which was the direct competitor of
the era has almost the same technical characteristics. With a
screen quality and a slightly higher battery capacity, the
Galaxy S7 disappoint on his camera his memory and his memory
internal by comparing to OnePlus. The price difference, however, is
extremely feel. Indeed the OnePlus 3 being 399 €, the price of
Samsung around 800 € does not leave indifferent.
The Huawei Ascend Mate 8 was also a direct competitor of this
OnePlus 3. Slightly bigger than the OnePlus and with a little less
RAM, the technical characteristics are substantially the same.
With however once again a difference in price, since the Huawei
is around 600 €.
The American competitor (Apple), released the iPhone 7 the same year.
Possessing a 3G memory for the Plus model, the OnePlus
stands out very widely. With a processor more worked, the iPhone yours
despite everything, the comparison. We must also take into account the
Apple's operating system which is much more worked and neat
that OxygenOS 3.1.1. However, does this justify the difference in price?
again very important? The iPhone 7 Plus with 32GB of storage
is found at 909 €, a difference in price exceeding 500 €.
The OnePlus 3 highlights the difference of OnePlus towards others
smartphone brands. OnePlus has been able to correct its neglected image for
to wipe all its faults. The OnePlus 3 is therefore a product of great
quality, high-end with a very affordable price in comparison to
Marketed on November 28, 2016, the "big brother" of OnePlus 3,
the OnePlus 3T is marketed! This improved version of OnePlus 3
once again increases the capabilities of OnePlus in terms of
Indeed, the OnePlus 3T with a lot of similarity between him and his
younger, accentuates the rise of OnePlus range. Indeed, the news
parts can only delight those wanting an overpowered smartphone. The
Operating system: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with OxygenOS 3.1.1 interface
specific to OnePlus

Processor: Snapdragon 821 à 2.35GHz
Cores : 2 x Kryo @ 2,2 GHz et 2 x Kryo @ 1,6 GHz

The main notorious difference between the two smartphones is at
processor level. The Snapdragon 821 of the OnePlus 3T exceeds very
largely the skills of the OnePlus 3 Snapdragon 820. There is a gain
about 10% performance between the two processors.
The battery also changes, it increases by 400 mAh thus passing
at 3400 mAh thus allowing a better autonomy, amount of approximately
15%. OnePlus was able to boast a full day autonomy with a
loading only 30 minutes!
The front camera is also changed to 16
Megapixels. The resolution of the photographs are thus multiplied by two
on the smartphone compared to its predecessor.
Amoled technology has also been modified to allow
better color management. It was a flaw in the OnePlus 3 that was shooting
a lot about blue due to poor color management of OnePlus.
This time the colors are much closer to this
that they must be.
Despite some notable differences, the OnePlus 3T remains
very similar to the OnePlus 3. With increased performance
general, he erases the small defects of his predecessor to make
a near perfect smartphone.
For its third generation smartphone, OnePlus has erased the
main defects of the first two generations. This new
generation puts forward especially the purely high characteristics of
range of OnePlus by not letting any major deficiencies reappear.
OnePlus thus passes the brand new with its many defects
to a nearly irreproachable constructor who must start taking at
