OnePlus team answers user questions in a Reddit AMA

OnePlus started out as a scrappy underdog from China and carved out a niche for itself in the smartphone industry to an extent that today nobody would tell you to not get a OnePlus because it’s Chinese. All has not been well for the flagship killer company though, but after a rough 2015, the company seems to be back on track with a more than amazing 2016 and two successful flagships.  The company managed to deliver one of the best and consistent experiences that one could purchase in its price bracket.

But OnePlus has once again made headlines with the launch of the OnePlus 3T: an “enhanced re-release” of their best product, aiming to solidify their position as one of the top dogs despite the continuous barrage of new competition.  Continue reading “OnePlus team answers user questions in a Reddit AMA”

OnePlus 3T is official at $439 (USD), $599 (CAD), €439 and £399

The OnePlus 3 is, without doubt, one of 2016’s very best smartphones because it offers true flagship performance at half the price of most rivals. But just five months after release OnePlus has controversially announced an upgraded version called the ‘OnePlus 3T’.

For this mid-cycle refresh, OnePlus has focused on bumping the specs and adding a few extra hardware features to the OnePlus 3T. The core of the experience in terms of external hardware, display and main camera components remain unchanged. But internally we have some new additions with a better processor, new front camera, 128GB storage option and a larger battery.

OnePlus Australia website is fake, devices still won’t be available in Australia

If you’re not living in Australia, you probably might be surprised to know that OnePlus has yet to bring a phone to Australia. A website went live today and those who spotted it saw a bit of hope, and if you were one of those, you’d probably not like to hear that it’s not an official OnePlus website nor has it any affiliation with the Chinese OEM.

The website sure seems legit and closely mimics the main OnePlus website which makes the intentions questionable. Continue reading “OnePlus Australia website is fake, devices still won’t be available in Australia”

Unknown OnePlus device (A3010) gets certified in China : OnePlus 3S?

It seems like OnePlus is working on a refreshed version of OnePlus 3 smartphone. A mysterious smartphone bearing model number OnePlus A3010 has received 3C Certification in China. For those who are unaware, CCC certification (compulsory) in China tells consumers that the product has been properly test and is safe for use.

OnePlus 3 has model number A3000, thus the A3010 listing indicates that this could be some variant of the OnePlus 3 since variants of OnePlus 2 were numbered as A2001,A2003, and such. Co-founder Carl Pei noted in a blog post yesterday that there is a one month delay on shipping the One Plus 3 because of a shortage of AMOLED screens.

Specs Comparison: Galaxy Note 7 vs. Galaxy S7, Moto Z, G5, OnePlus 3, and HTC 10

The day is coming to a close and even though you are probably burned out on all of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 coverage, since it has fully dominated the past several hours, we wanted to toss out a specs comparison of Samsung’s latest flagship to the other top tier devices of the moment. After all, the phone arrives with a steeper than usual price and a set of specs that few can stand up with. But is all of this worth it when compared to say, the OnePlus 3 and its $400 price tag? Or is it better than the S7 Edge, which can be had for decent discounts these days? Or does it need a modular aspect like the G5 and Moto Z?

We’ll let you weigh in on that for now as we lead up to our full Galaxy Note 7 review. Let the battle begin.
