OnePlus came out of the blue… in 2014. No one really knew about this phone back then. People thought, OnePlus as just another phone brand, alike “Karbonn” or “Micromax”. But, it didn’t quite turn out to be what people expected prior to the release of their first “flagship-killer”. After the OnePlus 1 was released, everything changed.
The self-proclaimed name, the “flagship-killer” didn’t really just live up to the hype, but actually massacred! Yes, OnePlus killed it, in terms of performance, in terms of price, in terms of every god damn thing! No other smartphone till date had achieved such a feat. Since then, OnePlus has never looked back and every single phone they have released have been a massive freaking success.
The OnePlus has a new “top-notch” design this year, embracing the ongoing trend. It has got a glass design this time which makes the phone look more premium. It has a 5.5-inch FullHD IPS LCD display. Under the hood, it’s rocking a Snapdragon 845. The phone is powered by Octa-core (4×2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) processor and an Adreno 630.
This device offers 128GB internal storage and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. It is also backed by a big 3300 mAh battery. The OnePlus 6 has a Dual 16 MP f/1.7, 27mm, and 20 MP f/1.7 camera setup. The front-facing camera is a 16MP f/2.0 shooter which will help you take some high res selfie photos.

OnePlus 6 is straight up a great smartphone. Who knows, it might turn out to be the bestseller for 2018. Embracing the notch was one of many 2018-y things OnePlus has done. The infamous notch has finally made its way to OnePlus 6 and this is good and bad depending on the person and situation. I am not a great fan of the “notch” but there are people who admire it. Even here at TechLekh we often have debates about whether the notch is the right way or not.
The other thing that OnePlus has done this year is the glass back. The glass back on this device looks absolutely stunning. You get three colors– midnight black, mirror black and silk white, silk white is a limited edition. However, in Nepal, you can only get the mirror black one. The one thing OnePlus failed to do this year was the wireless charging. This might be a deal breaker for some people, but I don’t care about it, I mean there’s already the dash charging.
You are getting this phone for a sub 75 thousand price. If you compare this to the flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Apple iPhone X, this phone gives you great value for the price. Actually, way more. I know, the camera might not be the best one, but it certainly is up there. So, I would not think twice while buying this device.
So, tell us about what you think of the OnePlus 6 in the comments down below!
