OnePlus 3 Review

7 Julio 2016, 21:10:38

OnePlus 3 ReviewSimilar to Apple, OnePlus is a smartphone manufacturer that does not rely on an extensive portfolio of devices, but rather on creating one or two feature-packed smartphones per year that have an affordable price, or what OnePlus has used to say - "a flagship killer". 2016 is the third year in a row, which sees a new OnePlus smartphone. The devices are unequivocally named One (2014), 2 (2015), X (2015) and 3 (2016). However, each one of them offers improvement over its previous generation. Moreover, the third iteration of the OnePlus smartphone shook off the strange invitation system for ordering devices and is available for purchase as any other mainstream smartphone, which we deem as a serious plus. In this review, we will check whether the company "never settles" and lives up to its strategy of offering a flagship smartphone for half the price of other flagships.

Specifications

Officially unveiled a month ago, OnePlus 3 is already available for purchase. It features a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display with an FHD resolution, which is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 with 2.5D curved edges. It graces an anodized aluminum body, which is only 7.35 mm thin. The device brings some serious horsepower with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset that employs a 2.15GHz quad-core Kryo CPU and an Adreno 530 GPU clocked at 624MHz. It is coupled with generous 6GB of double-channel LPDDR4 RAM clocked at 1.87GHz and 64GB of UFS 2.0 internal memory, which is non-expandable. The dual-nano-SIM smartphone packs a plethora of sensors, including a fingerprint one, embedded in the home button, along with many connectivity options - support for a wide range of networks bands, including 4G LTE Cat. 6 with VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, Cast display, NFC, GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, etc. In terms of multimedia, OnePlus 3 promises high-quality sound as it features Dirac Power Sound technology for speaker optimization, OnePlus Music technology, and a dual-microphone with noise cancellation. In addition, the smartphone boasts a 16-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX298 Exmor RS sensor that has a 1.12µm pixel size and works together with an f/2.0 lens. It has EIS, OIS, PDAF, a manual mode for the camera settings and can shoot 4K video. The front-facing snapper packs an 8-megapixel Sony IMX179 sensor with a 1.4µm pixel size. The shooter has an f/2.0 lens, EIS, fixed focus, and can make FHD videos at 30fps. The handset runs OxygenOS 3.1.3 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and is powered by a 3000 mAh battery with a fast charger. The latter is called Dash and has a 5V/4A (20W) output power, meaning you can reach 63% of the battery's capacity after only 30 minutes of charging. The Dash charger is interesting, also because it has a special protective system against overheating. If you're interested in further details, here's the full OnePlus 3 (A3000) specifications list.

What's in the box

True to its style, OnePlus ships the 3 in a white-and-red cardboard box with the OnePlus logo and the number 3 on top and some information about the model at the bottom. It contains the device itself, placed on top of a red envelope with a quick start guide, warranty card, safety information and a SIM tray pin inside. Below it, there is a compartment for the Dash charger and a second one for the thick and red USB to Type-C cable, which is held by special clips in rolled position. The charger has two flat pins for plugging in as per the US standard for electric sockets, so if the standard in your country is different, do not forget to prepare an adapter. The device arrives with a screen protector, which is pre-applied, but as usual we have removed it and tested the handset without it.

Design and build

Unlike the previous models, OnePlus 3 has a unibody design and each unit is made of a single piece of aerospace-grade anodized aluminum with a custom sandblasting finish for a premium, fine grained matte surface. The back is very slightly curved towards the vertical edges, which, on one hand, provides comfortable grip, and on the other, creates a very thin profile, which makes the device look slimmer than its 7.35 mm of waistline. Actually, the model is one of the slimmest flagships at the moment. The vertical curves finish in sharp edges, while the front edges, rimming the screen are very slightly chamfered and literally blend with the 2.5D curved edges of the top glass layer of the display. The visual result is quite appealing. You get a device that is distinctively stylish in a very subtle way. The aluminum body is also solidly built. You cannot simply twist or bend the device by applying a normal amount of force on it, even at its weakest point at the center of the back. All small details are done to the perfection. The ports, mics and speaker holes are excellently crafted. The metal physical buttons as well as the ceramics-covered capacitive home button, fit perfectly in their places. All are quite tactile, while protruding only very little. Being slim and solid, OnePlus 3 is also more compact than an average smartphone with a 5.5-inch display as its height and width measure 152.7 and 74.7 mm, respectively. The device weighs 158 grams and is comfortable to hold for long. The model is available in two color variants. The first one is graphite, made to re-produce the crystalline nature of titanium mineral ore. The second is soft gold and is created following the classical golden tones found in traditional Japanese art. The soft gold color option will be launched in the market later in time. We are reviewing a graphite color unit. You can purchase optional back cases, which are very thin and will protect the back from scratches without adding a lot to its thickness. These include a sandstone finish cover, a carbon-fibre one, and several with different wood textures.

Controls

OnePlus 3 has a practical and intuitive layout of the controls. On the left hand side of the device are placed the alert slider and the volume rocker, while on the right one are the dual-SIM card tray and the power button. This positioning is very convenient, especially if you have to use together the volume and power buttons a lot. The alert slider allows you to switch from all notifications, to priority notifications, silent mode and shift backwards, without even switching on the screen. It can be managed from the Alert Slider menu in the Settings. The top of the device remains untouched, while the bottom houses a speaker grille for a single speaker inside, a USB Type-C port, a mic hole, and a 3.5 mm jack. To the top end of the device's back are the primary camera, slightly protruding from the body, a single LED flash and the OnePlus logo below it - all vertically centered. On the front of the smartphone, above the screen you can see the LED notification light, managed from the corresponding menu in the Settings, the front-facing camera, proximity/light sensor and earpiece. Below the display is the capacitive home button, which embeds a fingerprint sensor and has a ceramic coating along with a metal frame. Two capacitive backlit dots on the two sides of the home button serve as a Back (the left one) and a Recents (the right one) button. There is a Buttons menu in the Settings, which allows you to switch the places of the Back and Recents buttons and to turn on and off the light of the capacitive dots. You can also opt for having on-screen buttons (switched off by default) and even choose to have the home button active, even with those on. Furthermore, this menu allows you to set the behaviour of the capacitive navigation bar buttons, by setting an action for a long press or for a double tap on each one of the three.

Display

OnePlus 3 boasts a 5.5-inch "Optic" Super AMOLED display with an FHD resolution (1080 x 1920), 401 ppi pixel density, dual-polarizing layer (anti-reflective coating) and a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 with 2.5D curved edges. Classic Super Active Matrix Organic LED displays are used mainly because of their low power consumption, faster pixel switching response times, infinite black levels and thinner display units. Under "optic" OnePlus means several custom-engineered gamma corrections of the colors, which are applied to the display in order to achieve more "vivid and true-to-life" colors and a "more natural viewing experience". Indeed, as already mentioned earlier, OnePlus 3 is very compact and thin for its class, and the display bezels are lessened to a great extent, measuring 0.755 mm only. So far, so good. However, the guys from OnePlus have over-done the "gamma corrections" of the colors and have achieved the opposite to the desired effect - they are unnatural. To put it simply, the colors are incorrect and the color shifting is visible even to inexperienced users. For example, the blue color in the icons of the apps looks more cyan than normal, while the red is paler and more orange. Watching videos, playing games and viewing photos is also affected by this. This problem is due to the extensive color gamut coverage as seen from the CIE diagram below. The strongest deviation is in the green and red color range. This color shifting problem has been recognized by OnePlus and the company even promised in its forums a software update, which will bring an sRGB mode for the display. If correct colors on your phone's screen is not an issue with great importance to you, you will be more than happy with it. The display is very quick and responsive, works like a charm and has some of the best viewing angles we've seen on a smartphone, almost without any brightness loss when looked at from aside. The infinite black effect of AMOLED displays is due to the fact that they shut off the pixels in order to display the black color. Therefore, the black value cannot be measured at any brightness level and the static contrast ratio cannot be calculated. Secondly, the white value at one and the same brightness level changes, depending on the portion of the display that is lit up. This is because AMOLED panels can provide more power to each pixel, if only some of the pixels have to be lit instead all of them. Respectively, OnePlus 3 provides excellent blacks and contrast levels (though the latter cannot be measured). The display is also very bright and the luminance in nits consistently decreases with the decrease in brightness percentage. The temperature of the white point is an average of 8600 K, which is slightly on the colder side. The display panel has a Diamond PenTile architecture as seen from the micrograph below. It is known for its subpixel rendering, which means that the number of green subpixels is the same as in a classic RGB stripe architecture, but the number of red and blue subpixels is twice as less. Subpixel rendering allows the number of pixels as in classic RGB stripe displays to be preserved with only 2/3rds of the number of dots. With an FHD resolution and a pixel density of 401 ppi, you must have the sight of an eagle and to look for specific problems with text rendering in weak points like red text on a black background, for example, in order to actually find any flaws. To cut the long story short, we're OK with the 1080p resolution of the OnePlus 3 display.

Since the display uses AMOLED panel, a correct measurement of the white value requires the usage of the Average Picture Level (APL) - the correlation between the portion of the display surface that is lit up and the whole display surface, when it is lit up. The graph below demonstrates how the white value drops with the increase of the APL percentage. For more detailed overview, we have also made to measurements of the white value at the five main brightness level - one at 100% APL (on a full white image) and one at 10% APL (on a white image that is 1/10 of the whole display). The graph below demonstrates how the max luminance changes when increasing the area of the screen that is lit up: sRGB Update: Honoring user feedback, OnePlus have been quite quick in releasing a major software update, which among other things contained a craved by many sRGB mode for the display. The end result is quite impressive. We have made new measurements of the brightness and white point temperature as well as new CIE diagram. The results show that under the sRGB mode the display covers almost exactly the sRGB color space. Color shifting and over-saturation are gone, colors are accurate. Moreover, the temperature of the white point is noticeably warmer and is an average of 6500-7000K. In order to enable this mode after receiving the update, you have to go to the Developers section in the Settings menu and switch it on. It disables the Color Balance option under the Display set of options.

OS, UI and software

OnePlus 3 runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with OxygenOS 3.1.3 on top. This means you will enjoy pure Android experience coupled with various customization tools and optimized performance and battery life. The lock screen allows you to access directly the voice search, camera app and the user management section from the Settings. On the Home Screen are placed a docked row of apps - Dialer, Messenger, App Tray icon, Chrome, Camera. Above it you see a folder with nine Google apps and a shortcut to PlayStore. The App Tray icon opens the list with apps in classic Marshmallow layout. Swiping the Home Screen to the right gives you access to the signature Shelf of OxygenOS. In the Shelf you work with boards, which can be added, removed, rearranged and resized. Pressing on and holding a board enters the edit mode, swiping it will remove it, and dragging is used for rearranging. Pressing and holding on a board longer brings up a resize dot, with which you can resize a board. By default, you see a board for memos, one with the most frequently used apps and one for a preferred widget or frequent contacts. You can also choose to display weather information in here.
A single swipe from the top of the display downwards opens up the Notifications and a second one - the Quick Menu. The latter includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on/off options, Night mode and Airplane mode, Auto-rotate, Flashlight, Location, Cast, Hotspot, and Invert colors. If you press the pen icon, you can rearrange these shortcuts by dragging them or show/hide them by tapping on them. A long press on the Settings icon activates the System UI tuner and there is also a shortcut icon to the User management menu. Pressing the volume rocker brings up the standard volume screen with levels for the system sounds, media, and alarm. Below it is displayed the current sound mode of the device, managed via the physical Alert Slider. There are three possible modes, which can be switched on and off without even turning on the display. The first is the default one and is called All Notifications. The second is Priority Notifications, and the third is called Silent Mode. By default, pressing the right capacitive button from the Navigation bar opens up the Task Manager, or the so called Recents menu, from where you can view the list with the apps you have opened up and an option to close some or all of them. Note that there is a 'Clear All' option, which closes apps running in the background and a 'Clean All' option, which not only kills background apps, but also stops all background processes, thus freeing up more RAM. There's also a link to App management. Pressing and holding on an empty space on the Home Screen brings up the Widgets and Wallpapers menu. It includes one additional setting called Customization. With it you can change the size of the icons as well as the size of the app screen and number of apps that appear on one screen. Pressing the power button longer opens up the Power Off menu, from which you can choose to turn off the device, reboot it, or make a screenshot.
The Settings menu is pretty standard for Android 6.0 Marshmallow with small additions to reflect the customization power of OxygenOS 3.1. The first set of options is the Wireless & networks one with a More... list of functions, which includes switching on and off the NFC function with Android Beam. The second set of options is Device and it starts with the Display menu. Under it are placed some useful features such as a Night Mode, which makes the display more yellowish by reducing the blue light and ultimately - the strain on the eyes. There's a color Balance option, which allows you to make the colors colder or warmer. The Ambient Display feature wakes the screen when you receive a notification, while the Proximity wake, wakes the display after waving your hand over the front-facing camera when the screen is off and will switch on showing the time and notifications (if any) in black and white. Under Device you can also manage the Sound & notification menu, Storage & USB, Apps, Users, Memory, Battery, and the Alert Slider. The settings of the latter let you choose for which events you want to have a sound notification under the Priority and Silent modes. The User management set of options allows you to add Guest users to your device, which limits their access to sensitive information and you can choose whether to allow them to have access to making phone calls or not.
The third set of options is called Personal and contains the standard Location, Security & fingerprint coupled with an App Permissions feature, Language & input, Accounts, Google, and Backup & reset options. However, there are three menus in addition to those. The first is called Customization. It lets you switch on a Dark mode that enables a system-wide dark theme. You can also choose the accent color for the menus, customize the LED notification light color and the icons that are displayed on the status bar. The second new option is called unequivocally Buttons. From this section you can choose to turn on the on-screen navigation bar, which is hidden while playing games or watching videos, enable the home button, even if the on-screen navigation is on, turn on and off the backlight of the capacitive buttons as well as swap the places of the Back and the Recents buttons. For all three buttons from the navigation bar, you can also choose to assign a function when it is long pressed or double tapped. The third new set of options is the Gestures one. It is limited only to four functions - a double tap for waking up the screen, drawing an O to open the camera and a V to toggle the flashlight, and music control gestures - drawing || with two fingers to play or pause music and drawing < or > for the previous or next track in your playlist. System is the fourth and final set of options from the Settings menu and includes Date & time, Accessibility, Printing, System updates, About Phone and System UI Tuner (when activated from the Quick Menu). It allows you to show the battery percentage inside the battery icon on the status bar, when the device is not charging. There is also a separate Demo mode. During our testing time there have no been system updates. If you're interested in tinkering with the device you can unlock the bootloader.
OnePlus does provide a very clean Android experience. This is very obvious after accessing the truly uncluttered list of apps from the App Tray icon on the home screen. Typically for Marshmallow, all apps are listed in alphabetical order on one screen that can be scrolled down and back up. However, the usual list of most frequently used apps on the top is missing. There is only a search bar, which lets you search among the apps you have installed. Besides the ten standard Google apps - PlayStore, Chrome, Gmail, Google, Maps, YouTube, Drive, PlayMusic, Hangouts, Photos, you also get the standard Calculator, Clock, Contacts, Calendar, Messenger, Dial pad, Downloads, Files, Gallery, and Voice Search plus the Settings icon and a second Music app made by OnePlus. There is no special app for playing videos. When you click a video file the system prompts you whether you want to open it with the Photos or Gallery app and plays it with either one. You can also access the Now on Tap function by long pressing the capacitive home button. It is capable of searching on the internet based on data found in an active app or on your current screen.

System Update to OxygenOS 3.2.1

The new update for the OnePlus 3 is actually quite extensive and does not only include an sRGB mode for the display, which is already explained in the Display section of this review. Among the minor changes are fixes of bugs and issues with the notifications, SIM recognition, clock, music, and gallery. The update also improves GPS performance, enhances audio playback quality, updates custom icon packs (new sets appear in the Customization option from the Widgets and Wallpapers menu), implements the latest Google security patches. It also says it improves RAM management, which is probably addressing the issue with the aggressive restriction of RAM usage by apps, and also improves the camera quality/functionality.

Networks, calls and connectivity

OnePlus 3 is a device made to work anywhere in the world as long as it concerns network support. The model has a North America variant supporting WCDMA bands 1/2/4/5/8, FDD-LTE bands 1/2/4/5/7/12/17/30, and CDMA EVDO BC0. The Europe/Asia variant supports WCDMA bands 1/2/5/8, FDD-LTE bands 1/3/5/7/8/20, and TDD-LTE bands 38/40, while the China version works with WCDMA bands 1/2/5/8, FDD-LTE bands 1/3/7, TDD-LTE bands 38/39/40/41, TD-SCDMA bands 34/39, and CDMA EVDO BC0. Of course, all support the four bands of 2G GSM networks. The handset has a dual-SIM card tray with two slots for nano-SIM cards. Call quality through the OnePlus 3 is truly excellent. Reception and signal have been steady and strong at all times. The device is also excellent in quickly detecting and connecting to Wi-Fi networks even in areas where Wi-Fi reception is generally weak. The model supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC with Android Beam, and USB OTG. The latter has to be switched on from the Storage & USB menu from the Settings. As long as it concerns location and positioning, the smartphone supports GPS/A-GPS, Glonass and BeiDou. It was quick to detect satellites from all three systems with very good accuracy of up to 3 meters. Another connectivity feature of the model is the Cast screen one, which lets you cast content from the device to a large display, suffice you have a compatible adapter attached to your TV/monitor.

Performance

After Xiaomi Mi 5 Standard Edition and LeEco Le Max 2, OnePlus 3 is the third device in a row we review that is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chipset. The SoC is built after the 14nm process and includes 2x 2.15GHz Kryo and 2x 1.6GHz Kryo cores as well as a 624MHz Adreno 530 GPU. It is known for being a very power-efficient chipset, yet providing the best performance among all available in the market. Compared to OnePlus 2, the third generation provides a 30% increase in speed performance and 40% increase in graphics performance. Indeed, OnePlus 3 is the current top performance beast on the AnTuTu chart with a score of 144140, which knocks down Vivo XPlay5, Le Max 2, ZUK Z2 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 5, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and iPhone S6. The device also scores excellently in Geekbench 3, Basemark, 3DBenchMark and PCMark tests. Graphics demanding games at the top graphics level, like Asphalt 8, run impressively smoothly with great visual detail. OnePlus 3 arrives with a healthy amount of dual channel, LPDDR4 RAM - 6GB. However, the manufacturer has implemented a very aggressive memory management system, which actually does not allow you to take advantage of all 6GB of RAM on board. This is not a bug and does not mean the device lags or is not good at multitasking. On the contrary, this is done in reference to saving battery life. In case you're tech savvy, there are ways to change these management settings, including creating an entire custom ROM for the device. The manufacturer will address this issue in the update, in which it includes an sRGB mode for the display.
The on-board storage is generous as well, measuring 64GB, however, it cannot be expanded. More importantly, it utilizes the UFS 2.0 technology, which is three times faster than the eMMC5.1. The Androbench test also puts the OnePlus 3 at the top places for sequential and random reading/writing from/to the memory. Typically for a flagship device, the 3 packs a plethora of sensors, including an accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, motion detector, step counter, light, proximity, rotation vector, and of course - a fingerprint sensor. The latter is embedded in the home button and has a top ceramic layer. It is very easy and quick to setup a fingerprint ID and unlocking is instantaneous. The manufacturer claims that the sensor actively learns and progressively improves, so with time it should become more accurate and faster.

Cameras

OnePlus 3 is equipped with a 16-megapixel rear camera, featuring a Sony IMX298 Exmor RS sensor with a 1.12 µm pixel size. It has both optical and electronic image stabilization (OIS and EIS), phase-detection auto-focus, Dynamic Denoise and an f/2.0 lens. The camera is capable of shooting 4K and slow-motion video. The front snapper packs an 8-megapixel Sony IMX179 sensor with a 1.4 µm pixel size coupled with an f/2.0 lens, EIS and fixed focus. It can shoot FHD video at 30fps, arrives with a Beauty Mode and a Smile Capture option. The camera app is pretty standard. You have a large shutter button, switch key between the rear/front shooter, a quick settings menu for changing the aspect ratio, enabling a grid and setting a timer. On the top of the screen are the on/off/auto HDR mode and the LED flash icons. The list icon on the left opens up a menu for choosing from various modes, including a manual one, slow-motion, panorama, time-lapse, etc. The manual mode lets you change the ISO, aperture, and so on. There is also an additional Settings button, from where you can choose to save location info in the file, save photos in RAW format, and enable/disable the shutter sound. Sliding around the focus circle also lets you change the exposure and a long press on a spot on the screen enables focus lock.

Audio

OnePlus 3 does not have a special audio hardware, but does provide very good sound quality, even through its speaker. It has a single speaker, placed at the bottom frame, which is coupled with Dirac Power Sound technology for speaker optimization and a dual-microphone with noise cancellation. The device excels in frequency response and IMD + Noise, while it scores Average in THD + Noise, the rest of the variables being assessed as Very good. For the audio measurements we use the RightMark Audio Analyzer software and the TASCAM US-2x2 audio interface.

Battery

One of the most discussed features of OnePlus 3 is its Dash Charge technology. On one hand, it includes a solution for reducing the heat generated in the device, while charging, by moving the power management system and heat dispersion elements to the Dash Charge Adapter. On the other hand, the charger itself has a very high output power of 20W (5V/4A) and it managed to charge 60% of the battery from 0% in 27 minutes - 3 minutes quicker than the specified 30 minutes by the manufacturer. It took 1 hour and 9 minutes to charge the battery from 0% to 100%. Dash Charge works only with OnePlus' own charging adapters and USB cables. Besides providing an amazing quick charge tech, the guys from OnePlus have also improved the Doze mode, embedded in Marshmallow, so you can get the most out of the battery and rely on it for a whole day of normal use. There is no special battery optimization software. You get the standard Battery status monitor with an option to change the icon in the status bar as well as the Battery optimization and Battery saver as integral parts of Android 6.0. The PCMark Work battery life test, which actually provides very true-to-life results, shows 7 hours and 46 minutes, which is an excellent result for the combination of hardware and software in OnePlus 3. The test has been performed with the brightness calibrated at 200 cd/sq.m. as recommended by Futuremark.

Final thoughts

OnePlus 3 has several aces up its sleeve that might turn it into a love at first sight for many of you out there. Currently it is one of the fastest, if not the fastest, smartphone available in the market, equally suitable for business, entertainment, communication. Moreover, high-end horsepower is coupled with strong customization capabilities, which turn the device into a reliable personal assistant that fits like a glove. OxygenOS 3.1.3 simply flies on OnePlus 3 and enhances the otherwise clean Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow experience. The manufacturer did not intend to provide stunning battery stamina, but actually the device manages to get the best out of its 3000 mAh battery and the Dash Charge technology really delivers to expectations. The camera department is very decent and makes pretty good photos. In terms of connectivity this is an excellent all-rounder that should provide you with all the tools you might need in order to stay connected one way or another. Finally, OnePlus 3 definitely reaches its goal to provide a flagship experience for half the flagship price. The smartphone is a very balanced offering in terms of features, performance and price, and deserves a top place in everyone's wish list of sub-$500 models.
