Expert review by : Lynn La (

The OnePlus 3 completely redefines the budget phone (review)


Last year, my idea of a fantastic "high-end" budget phone was something like the Google Nexus 5X -- a bit smaller than your usual flagship with a decent-but-not-mindblowing camera and a processor that, while not at the top of the class, still made...

The OnePlus 3's sharp camera, powerful processor and enduring, quick-charging battery make a knockout combo when you factor in its low price

The camera has a distinct bulge. Power users may be disappointed that the phone doesn't have a swappable battery or expandable storage

At $400, the OnePlus 3 is the best budget Android phone you can buy, with a premium look and feel, and performance fast enough to go head-to-head with any high-end handset on the market.

Decent phone


Decent phone with nice specifications, I don't really listen to music so the 64gb storage fits fine but I can see it being an issue as my apps keep growing in size It has fast charging but only with the supplied charger The camera is not as good as the...

Great power comes at an excellent phone


I've had this phone for close to a year now. Lots of power and RAM means an always-smooth experience. Regular updates mean that users get the latest Android features earlier than most. A good supportive community too if you have any problems (or want...

Love the masterpeice


I've been using this phone for 6-8 months now and I cannot fault it. It has been great. The camera quality is amazing and the screen is very responsive. For a phone which costs $400-500, it is value for money. Android OTA updates are working great and...

Screen failed, but fixed under warranty


exactly confidence-inspiring for my first foray into the world phones made by a non-mainstream manufacturer. The software is nice and clean and simple to use. The fast charge feature is very handy. At 64GB, the storage is generous and will meet all my...

For the money, you can't go wrong


charge. It also runs on Android 6 Marshmallow. There's very little bloatware added by OnePlus slowing it down and with that 6gb RAM it (most of the time) runs fast. It's one thing having great specs but quite another if it doesn't feel right (think the...

Fabulous phone


This is a fabulous phone. Heaps of RAM and a powerful processor so it is really, really quick. I just received the Android 7 update and that is good too. Two other family members have been so impressed that they too bought this phone (actually the 3T...
