OnePlus is a very young and too daring even by today’s standards. It appeared just three years ago, and the first tangible product was produced in 2014 and with great fanfare. The company does not hesitate to call the OnePlus One the flagship killer and even offered to all who wish to destroy your last smartphone, shoot a video and get a chance to buy the OnePlus One for $ 1. And all anything, but to destroy we had a very specific smartphones: iPhone, flagship Samsung, LG, HTC. Safely, right

? Despite a wave of criticism in the campaign “Smash The Past” was featured 140 thousand people, of which the company chose exactly one hundred lucky winners. And by the end of 2014 OnePlus sold nearly one million smartphones, initially relying on the tens of thousands.

Last year OnePlus “gave birth to” two smartphone OnePlus the OnePlus 2 and X, but it seems that only now the company has turned what was originally intended. New OnePlus 3 competitive on two fronts: he will resist as top-end smartphones And brands, and the Chinese flagship from Meizu and Xiaomi.

Design and ergonomics

Third OnePlus is really like a “killer flagships” in appearance. At least now only the manufacturer was able to get rid of the obvious contradictions in the design. The first thing you notice is the shape of the case: the second model was quite good from the point of view of ergonomics, but the body seemed too angular and created some discomfort when working with one hand. The OnePlus 3 profile was more rounded – thanks to the curved glass (same 2.5 D) and slightly more curved sidewalls. So in terms of convenience, the Chinese flagship could compete with the iPhone 7 Plus.

But behind the OnePlus 3 cool reminds smartphone HTC One M9: all-metal back with thin plastic “Windows” for antennas, a square unit cell. It is possible that the housing produced in the same factories. In General, OnePlus 3 similar to several devices, you can capture the General trend towards the depersonalization of smartphones.

Camera, by the way, rises above the surface of the body a millimeter and a half, and it has metal edging and the edges sharp. Smartphone it won’t cause any problems, but I would still recommend to be careful – you can inadvertently scratch the lacquered table. Better to just use the corporate cover, they have the OnePlus is very good.


The volume control is in the upper part of the left side, just like the iPhone, and next to it is a corrugated three-position slider that resembles a power button in the HTC One A9 or HTC 10. In the highest position it disables all sounds on the average – leaves only priority notifications, well, the lower position allows the smartphone to operate normally.

On the right side is the power button and tray for two SIM-cards (both with a nanoSIM card), but space to install a memory card is not provided at all. There will be enough 64 GB for comfortable work.


The top end does not contain any elements, and on the bottom is a USB Type-C connector, a speaker and a mini Jack for headphones. A little weird that the 3.5 mm connector is located on the right – the headphones are plugged in can interfere with comfortable retention of the apparatus.

On the front side of the smartphone is the mechanical buttons at all. In the center is a small touchpad, which acts like a Home button, it also built the fingerprint scanner. Left and right are invisible touch buttons for return to the previous screen and the list of open applications. Their depression is accompanied by a slight vibration.

   

Configuring the scanner of fingerprints occurs in the usual way, and the work of complaints. To unlock the phone, simply touch your finger to the touch panel is, in my opinion, this is perfect, full access to your device in seconds. The same iPhone 7 requires just a physical clicking, so that the lag when unlocking becomes larger.

   
   

In the role of the operating system is Android 6.0.1 with sheath Oxygen OS version 3.2.4. The interface is discreet, quite nice. I could find fault only to the performance of some of the icons in the main menu: they are a bit too disparate, colorful and stylistically cannot be combined with other interface elements, such as the settings menu and the quick access toolbar. But most importantly, OnePlus is not trying to impose tons of “useful” apps of its own design (Hello ASUS!), not presets the various Russian services (“Yandex” or Mail.ru) – from a functional point of view in front of us almost pure Android.
