We have been about hearing about One Plus since its prior launch of its One Plus One smartphone. One Plus One shattered the smartphone world by bringing the high end galaxy specs within the range of $350. However, this year the company has increased the price of its flagship predator, One Plus 3.

Yes, in this version too, you will get almost all the specs as those of other flagship phones like Galaxy S7. Firstly, let’s have a closer look at the specifications of this phone.

  • Snapdragon 820 Chipset
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 64 GB Capacity
  • OxygenOS
  • 3000MAH Battery (Non Removable)
  • 16 MP Camera
  • 5 inch optic AMOLED display with 1080p resolution

You are getting all these features within the price range of $399 dollar (Roughly INR 30000 or NPR 48000). Though it may not sound like a budget smartphone to many people, it is really worth the price you are paying for. The phone is filled with a latest smartphone chip from Qualcomm. Therefore, you will be able to get a smoother and groundbreaking performance. One Plus has fitted the phone with gigantic 6GB RAM. One Plus Co –Founder revealed that the RAM is meant to be utilized in a different way so as to boost battery life and user experience. Unfortunately, you will be getting 64 GB “non-expandable” memory storage with this device.

In this generation of One Plus, you will be blessed with NFC. You may use this for android pay or for other utility functions. Talking about the operating system, OxygenOS, it resembles the stock android version. The OS works great for a normal user experience.

Generally, when you pay lower price for a phone, the camera quality tends to degrade. However, in One Plus 3, you will not experience that annoying feeling. The camera is equipped with the optical image stabilization for shooting better photos. Here, the camera might bring minor compromises, but its worth what you pay for.  The finger print sensors show a fast response and speakers have a typical quality with less distortions.

Oh! How can we forget about the battery? One Plus has a good battery which lasts typically for a day with heavy use. With a dash charger you can even charge the battery from 0% to 60% in 30 minutes. This is faster than the Galaxy S7 charging option.


Overall, One Plus 3 is the best available budget phone in the market of 2016. It may not be the best smartphone for a crazy phone user. On the other hand, If you are a normal phone user whose budget meets this price range, I recommend you to grab it.
