The 3 year old Chinese company breaking the trend of cheap smart phones created the amazing phone called ONE PLUS ONE The company face lose with its second phone one plus 2 but come up with amazing One plus 3 and merely after six months it came up with its upgraded version called one plus 3T . and it is absolutely master class While the looks, design, OS, 6GB RAM and even the rear camera continue to be the same, it still has some incremental upgrades.


Overview of Phone:

The body of one plus 3 phone is metallic. It continues to have a 5.5inch full HD Optic AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Within the display setting is screen calibration allowing to switch to sRGB mode or even customize the display from warm to cold tone.

Along with the regular buttons, there is a notification button on the left panel that switches between ring, do not disturb and silent. This comes really handy to use while stepping into meetings. USB Type C port along with audio jack and speaker grill is at the bottom. The fingerprint scanner is below the display is quick to unlock the device. It is comfortable to grip with a single hand. The OnePlus 3T is 7.4mm thick and weighs 158 grams.

Key Features :

OnePlus's products are simple. The company is providing the Best Features and focusing mainly on Performance.

The OnePlus 3 was powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with was very fast and offered superb performance. But then the other phones such as the Google Pixel or even the Samsung Galaxy Note 7  came out with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and OnePlus followed the series  by adding the same processor to its OnePlus.

It is giving the 6 GB RAM which no other product is giving also other than that we cannot see any visible difference in performance but when we start playing Heavy graphics games and browsing multiple apps, we would see the difference. One in all multitasking was much smooth.

Phone also doesn’t have heating problem.

The battery is upgraded than One plus 3 The battery has been increased from the 3000 mAh to 3400mAh on OnePlus 3T. It also supports Dash Charge and as per the company claims, it is capable of charging 60 per cent battery in 30 minutes. And it lived up to the claims as our completely drained device charged close to 54 per cent in the time mentioned above. Even with heavy usage, a full charge lasted me over a day and a half.

The rear camera continues to have the same lens and is now covered with a more durable sapphire glass. There is also an updated Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) algorithm and updated software that enhances color tones of the image captured. Front facing camera has been bumped up from 8MP to 16MP. This is a welcome edition for selfie addicts. The images captured from the front facing camera are better than the predecessor.

But the phone is not Water Resistant. I feel this is only thing to worry about so, OnePlus 3T is undoubtedly the best Smartphone at its price. It offers performance and battery improvements over the OnePlus3.

Price: Rs 34,999 for 128GB and Rs 29,999 for 64GB
