With a tagline of “A day’s power in half an hour”, OnePlus had launched its new flagship phone of 2016 “OnePlus 3” and it has proved that it is really a phone without any compromises. With a feature like Dash Charging, OnePlus ensures to provide faster, safer, cooler and simply better than any other charging technology available today.
The design and built quality itself is a masterpiece as its metal uni-body is carved from a single slab of premium aluminum, resulting in an ultra-thin design with a satisfying solid build although it is just 7.3 mm thick.
The huge 6 GB of RAM gives plenty more space to handle the multitask with an ease and 64 GB of internal storage which is enough for storing all kinds of your favorite files, pictures, songs and movies for decent users as it does not supports external memory expansion, and UFS 2.0 technology moves data three times faster than the ubiquitous eMMC5.1.
OnePlus 3 runs on the latest version of OxygenOS which make this phone lot more exciting and easy to use because of its fast, clean, and bloat-free OS, based on Android Marshmallow. Features that give you more control to personalize your smartphone experience, like screen-off gestures and customizable buttons, are all built right in. It’s the pure Android experience you love, enhanced for customization, performance, and battery life. Sounds pretty sweet, right?
Another fascinating feature of OnePlus 3 is its improved fingerprint sensor which unlocks in just 0.2 seconds, even from a sleeping screen. With simple and easy camera app, 16MP camera is equipped with f/2.0 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization and phase detection autofocus on the rear of the OP3 and there is 8MP front camera which captures your photo whenever you smile. Isn’t that a cool feature?
The OnePlus 3 is available in two striking color variants, Graphite and Soft Gold. But here in Nepal, the sole distributor iHub Pvt. Ltd has only introduced soft gold variant and is priced as Rs.49,900 which is close to the international market price. You can buy this brilliant phone from various OnePlus official retailers available around the country.
