One Plus 3. The Flagship Killer?

OnePlus 3
The One Plus have made their name from their previous phones the One Plus 1 and the One Plus 2 and both were very well known for their impressive specs for a very reasonable price. Big specs and low price, that’s what one plus does the best. This year they are back with their new flagship device the One Plus 3. Will this phone also be called as the flagship killer like its predecessors? Lets find out.

Design

The phone looks  very simple. It’s has a unibody metal design with the fingerprint scanner on the front, USB C port on the bottom and the button placement is same like its predecessors. The only difference is the camera. The size of the optics has been increased and also the phone is much thinner now which eventually makes the camera hump pop out. This may not be an issue for many users but there would have been no problem if they would have retained the dimensions of the phone which could accommodate a larger battery. One Plus has also introduced a case with the sandstone texture on it just incase if the users miss the sandstone texture like that on the One Plus 1 or the One Plus 2.

Display

The One Plus 3 has a 5.5 inch optic Amoled display with a resolution of 1080x1920 (401 ppi). The screen is made of corning gorilla glass 4 and can withstand heavy drops. One Plus are still stuck to the 1080p panel to keep the price tag of the phone low. Though it a 1080p panel, the display looks very vibrant because of its Amoled screen. The colors are not over saturated and look warm in bright light.

Internals & Memory

It comes with the snapdragon 820 chipset and adreno 530 GPU. It is boosted with a whopping 6 GB ram which makes the phone very fast. The high end internals makes the phone one of the fastest on the market. Playing a heavy loaded game, multitasking, taking multiple images, etc can be done with no issues. The phone comes with 64 GB of internal memory and is not expandable. The phone comes with Oxygen OS 3.0 based on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Camera

The One Plus 3 has a 16 MP Sony sensor on the back and a 8 MP shooter on the front. There are no special features or something on this phone but just normal solid choices like OIS, fast Auto-focus, face detection, exposure, etc. The camera app is decently fast and can easily take a bunch of snaps with ease. The images are fairly well balanced and look really good. The camera with the design of this phone looks really simple. If One Plus would have added laser auto focus to the camera, the phone would somewhat look more premium.

Battery

It has a 3000mAh battery and for a 1080p phone this would be adequate. The battery life is pretty decent. The phone can easily last a whole day with 4-5 hours of screen on time. The One Plus now have introduced something called as Dash charging which is basically fast charging as they provide a 4 Amp charger which can boost up the charging in very less time.

Our Verdict

The One Plus 3 will undoubtedly be the best budget phone of this year. It has a fast performance, premium built, good camera and good battery life which is essential for a smartphone to be good. High end specs with low price tag makes this a really good deal.

One Plus 3. What's new?

One Plus made their entry in 2014 with the One Plus 1 which was one of the best phone in that year. Then they came with the One Plus 2 in 2015 again being one of the best that year. They also came up with the One Plus X which was one of the best budget phone last year. And this year which was one of the best year for the smartphones, do you think their new flagship would be one among the best?

There have been a lot of rumours about the new One Plus flagship smartphone. The one thing that is confirmed is that the One Plus 3 would be acquiring a complete metal body ditching the sandstone back like that on the One plus 1 or One plus 2. One Plus just like their previous smartphones will stick to the 1080p super Amoled screen for their flagship device this year. There are a lot of phones with 2K resolution and the One Plus are still stuck with the 1080p panel, why so? The reason for this would be to keep the price tag low just like they’ve been doing it since the last two years. But the new One Plus 3 would be boosted with a whopping 6 GB ram which is absolutely amazing. The battery capacity would also escalate to 3500 mAh. A huge battery with 1080p screen is perfect to have a long lasting battery life. They will surely stick to the snapdragon 820 without any question. The One plus 3 would come with Oxygen OS 3.0 based on the android 6.0 marshmallow. One more thing is that the NFC would be making a come back which most of the people missed in the One Plus 2. The rest of the things like fingerprint scanner, camera, etc would be placed in the same position with many improvements. The exact price of the phone is still not known but it will surely be under 30000 INR.


The One Plus smartphones have been called as the flagship killers having heavy specs with a very low price tag. Will the new One Plus device hang around with the rest of the top phones? What do u guys think?

The iPhone 7 Pro would be the most advanced of all the three. It would have the specs of its standard version but there would be a lot many add ons to it.

Dual Camera

The rumours suggest that the ‘PRO’ version of the IPhone would have a dual camera set up. One would have the normal lens and the other one would have a wide angle lens for a wide view of the image.

There’s one more rumour that says that the ear-pods which are provided with the new flagship would be plugged inside the lightning port in absence of the headphone jack.

iPhone 7 Rumours

No Antenna Bands and Water resistant

So far, rumours indicate that the next iPhone will be water resistant, feature liquid metal, and eliminate antenna lines. There are also rumours that it could sport a smart connector, though that’s in contention.

Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 vs HTC 10

Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 vs HTC 10

This year has been a great year for the smartphone industry. Lot of amazing smartphones have been released this year and many more are yet to come. But for now the Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 and HTC 10 are top on the list. How would it be if these go head to head with each other? Let's find out. 



Design

Galaxy S7 - The S7 has corning gorilla glass 4 on its front and back just like it's predecessor’s design except that it now has its glass curved on the back rather than being flat. The phone is IP 68 certified which means that it is dust and water resistant. The phone will easily survive if it falls into a bucket of water or into the pool. The S7 is available in Black, White, Gold and Silver colours.

LG G5 - The design of G5 is completely different from its predecessor. It has a unibody metal design and has plastic lining on the chamfered edges. The LG G5 is the first ever modular phone to be released. Basically the under part of the phone which is so called ‘Module’ can be swapped with a camera or audio module which is made by LG itself for a better camera or audio experience. It has a fingerprint scanner on the backside of the phone just like Nexus 6p or Nexus 5x. The G5 is available in Silver, Titan, Gold and Pink colours.


HTC 10 - The HTC 10 has a full metal body and looks very simple. The legendary boom sound speakers of HTC have now been removed and a fingerprint scanner has been introduced. Instead of the boom sound speakers it now has a small speaker on bottom of the phone and one big speaker for higher frequencies beside the ear piece. The HTC 10 is available in Carbon Gray, Topaz Gold and Glacier Silver .   



Display

Galaxy S7 - It has a 5.1 inch Quad HD super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (577ppi). The screen is made of Corning gorilla glass 4 and can easily survive few heavy drops. The display is one of the best looking one in the market after the Sony Xperia Z5. The color, text and everything else on the display would be really pleasing to the eye. 

LG G5 - It has a 5.3 inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (554ppi). The screen of G5 is also made of Corning gorilla glass 4. The display is really dim and the user has to strain his eye to see the display in the bright light outdoors. 

HTC 10 - It has a 5.2 inch Super LCD screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (565ppi). The screen of HTC 10 is also made of Corning gorilla glass 4. The colours on the display are very vibrant and look very appealing to the eye. 


Internals & Memory

Galaxy S7 - It has two variants. One is powered with Exynoz 8890 with Mali T880 MP12 as the GPU. Another variant is of Snapdragon 820 with Adreno 530 as the GPU. It is boosted with 4 GB ram and has 32/64 GB as internal memory. It has micro SD slot for expandable storage. The performance on this phone is top notch. Multi tasking is really smooth and the camera responses very fast.

LG G5 - It is powered with the Snapdragon 820 chipset with Adreno 530 as the GPU. It has a dual core processor and is boosted with 4 GB ram.

ANTUTU Benchmark Scores: 

Galaxy S7 – 134704
LG G5 – 133054
HTC 10 – 145325


Camera

Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 vs HTC 10

Galaxy S7 - The S7 has a 12 MP shooter on the back with OIS and a 5 MP shooter on the front. Though the MP numbers are less than its predecessor the camera has f/1.7 aperture which produces amazing pictures. The auto focus is ridiculously fast and in fact is the fastest compared to any other smartphone. The only downgrade is that it produces grainy images in low light. The picture quality is amazing in bright light and the colours in the images look very warm and vibrant. 


LG G5 - The G5 comes with a dual camera set up. The main one has a 16 MP f/1.8 aperture and the next one is a wide angle lens with 8MP. It has laser autofocus and produces stunning images. In low light or bright light, indoor or outdoor any person will have a great experience using the camera on this phone. We can even swap the ordinary module with a camera module for even better experience. 


HTC 10 - The HTC 10 has a 12 MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and built in OIS and has a 5MP shooter on the front which also has OIS. It has laser autofocus but the images produced are just above average. They are good in bright light and are not over saturated. The front camera is really good and would be perfect for good selfies. 



Battery

Galaxy S7 - It has a Non removable 3000 mAh battery which can easily last a full day with 4-5 hours screen on time. It comes with a microUSB port and supports fast charging and wireless charging.

LG G5 - It has a removable 2800 battery. It has a USB type C port for charging. The phone may die just before the day ends but as the battery is removable it can be easily swapped with another one. It also supports fast charging and can get up to 70% of charge in 30 mins.

HTC 10 - Just like the G5 the HTC 10 also has a USB type C port but has a bigger battery than the G5. The battery life on the HTC 10 is truly amazing. The phone may last a whole day on a heavy usage and two days on a normal usage. It also supports fast charging but not as fast as that on the G5. 


Conclusion

Pros:

Galaxy S7 – Great display, IP 68 certified, battery life, camera (good lighting), fast charging, wireless charging and fast performance. 

LG G5 – Great display, Modular design, fast charging, camera and fast performance.


HTC 10 – Bright display, battery life, fast charging , design, OIS for front cam and fast performance.
