    Yesterday, smartphone company OnePlus released their new flagship device, the OnePlus 3. OnePlus is known for striving towards making affordable and easy to use smartphone devices that include all of the typical features you would find on any other flagship smartphone, but at a lower price, so let's take a look at what they have for us this time.

    The new OnePlus device is meant for those people who are interested in buying a smartphone that won't break the bank, but will still pack a punch when it comes to performance.​

    The new smartphone measures at 7.4mm thick and weighing in at 158 grams. That's about the weight of a hockey puck. The OnePlus 2 measured at 9.9mm and 175 grams because of that larger battery which OnePlus should've stuck with because, let's be realistic, who doesn't want a larger battery?

    The standard Sandstone Black from the OnePlus 2 has been replaced with a nice, soft, cold aluminium casing with a non-removable 3000 mah battery. OnePlus does allow the user to customize the back with protective cases available from their site. These cases are the typical Karbon, Rosewood, Sandstone, Bamboo and Black Apricot casings.

    The OnePlus 3 has a new design, unlike before where its camera was inside the body of the phone with the flashlight. This time OnePlus has ditched that idea, and has gone with a camera that pops out of the back. The rear camera is a 16 megapixel from Sony with a f/2.0 aperture and phase detection autofocus. The front facing camera is a 8 megapixel camera with a 1/3.2. This is a step up from the OnePlus 2, which had a rear camera that was 13 megapixels and a front facing camera which was 5 megapixels.

    The device will be a powerhouse. It'll be housing a Snapdragon 820 with the Adreno 530, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Unfortunately there will be no expandable storage. The OnePlus 3 will come with OxygenOS which is customized version of the Android OS made by OnePlus for their devices. OxygenOS is near stock Android. The new OnePlus 3 also has Dash Charging, which is their version of fast charging. OnePlus has mentioned that their Dash Charging feature will charge the phone up to 63% in 30 minutes, which will last about a day, but it will only work with the massive charger that is included in the box.

    The smartphone will start at $399 USD and £309 GBP. What do you think? Do you like this new powerful, feature packed OnePlus 3 better than its predecessor, the OnePlus 2?

    Just a recommendation for people who are interested in buying this, check out the ZTE Axon 7 which should come out any day now. Much better specs, only $50 more. Still rocks the 820, 6GB of RAM, 1440p display, first ever phone with Dolby Digital audio in the US, and first phone to be compatible with Google DayDreamer.

    Damn look at those specs and it's only for £309! It's also got fkn 6GB of ram, while you look at expensive *** phones like an iPhone which has dog sht specs yet it's over priced. I don't understand why the sheep who buy apple products don't relealise they're being ripped off badly.

    $400 for a phone that I've never heard of is supposed to be cheap?! I bought my S7 during a sale and got 2 for $700 so $350 a piece. This seems like something that will fail.

      One Plus make really good flagship phones for a really good price. This phone's specs with its price will kill the market.

    See, people made fun of me because I suggested more RAM in the OnePlus 2 would've been nice seeing as it is a OnePlus device and RAM is what they do..
    Now who is laughing!
    Hell, it's more than half the notebooks out currently.

      It's excessive as the device uses up to 4GB usually, but who cares? You can say that you've got more RAM.

      I can see it happening already...
      "You only got 4GB of RAM?"
      "Yeah, so?"
      "I've got 6GB, my RAM is bigger than yours!"

      I'm going to be getting the same phone.

    OnePlus certainly made a well built device this time. The OnePlus Two wasn't just ugly, it seemed like an upgrade wasn't even worth it. I'll surely be picking one of these up for my collection.

      Scarlett Johansson I get what you mean, but that's not quite how it works. Without having personally tried the product, YOU shouldn't recommend it to others who are looking for a fair opinion. The OnePlus 3 is PROBABLY an amazing phone, though.

      I'm going to be buying it very soon.
