OnePlus 3 firmware updated to fix RAM and screen, but you’ll have to wait

The hottest Android phone right now is the OnePlus 3. The third flagship from the Chinese company is far better than predecessors, but it also has some flaws. Luckily for buyers, the RAM management and screen color issues can be fixed with the help of a firmware update. However, there’s a catch: It’s only review units that will receive the over-the-air (OTA) fix initially, with a public release expected to go out in the future.

OnePlus 3 vs. Galaxy S7 edge: The specs showdown you’ve been waiting for

OnePlus 3 vs. Galaxy S7 edge: The specs showdown you’ve been waiting for

OnePlus’s most recent launch has been anything but conventional. The company announced last week that the new OnePlus 3 would go on sale today at 12:30pm EDT, but it didn’t offer any additional information at all. No specs, no images of the phone, and no pricing. In fact, details surrounding the hot new “flagship killer” weren’t even official until 1:00pm today, thirty minutes after the phone went on sale. All that is water under the bridge now though, and the OnePlus 3 is available for purchase for just $399. $399!

OnePlus calls its new phone a flagship killer but can a $400 phone possibly kill any flagships? Now it’s time to find out. More →

OnePlus 3 review: A ‘flagship killer’ that really kills other flagships

OnePlus 3 review: A ‘flagship killer’ that really kills other flagships

Think about how difficult it is right now to break into the smartphone market. You’ve got Apple and Samsung at the top of the pile in developed world, gobbling up well over 90% of the global smartphone market’s profits each quarter and toppling former heavyweights like BlackBerry, Microsoft and Palm. Then you’ve got established players like LG, Sony and HTC struggling beneath them. Despite their big budgets and sleek smartphones, they haven’t been able to get much traction at all in recent years.

At the low end of the market, you’ve got a slew of Chinese smartphone companies churning out shockingly capable handsets at rock bottom prices. Then you’ve got Xiaomi, which took the world by storm when it copied Apple’s every move but sold smartphones at half the price of the iPhone. But even Xiaomi’s sales have hit a wall, so the company is looking to expand its reach in search of growth.

Is there any room for another player in this crowded market? OnePlus found a niche by creating unique flagship-grade smartphones that appeal to hardcore Android fans but sell for far less than any high-end iPhone or Galaxy S handset. Now the company is back with the OnePlus 3, a stunning device that is easily OnePlus’s most impressive accomplishment to date. More →

If these leaked pics are real, OnePlus 3 might actually be the hottest Android phone ever

If these leaked pics are real, OnePlus 3 might actually be the hottest Android phone ever

What would you get if you took the iPhone 6s Plus, HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, and somehow mashed them all together into one gorgeous flagship phone? Well, if these leaked photos end up being real — and there’s every indication that they are indeed real — you’d get the OnePlus 3, a hot new flagship phablet that OnePlus will release next week on June 14th.

In a curious move, OnePlus announced the phone’s release date without actually revealing any details about the device itself, but leaks appear to have painted a fairly complete picture at this point… and if that picture even comes close to representing reality, OnePlus will likely have managed to build the hottest Android phone the world has ever seen.

Leaked OnePlus 3 photos show one of 2016’s most exciting phones powered on for first time

As it does each year with its twice annual flagship Galaxy phone launches, Samsung has stolen the show so far in 2016. Sure there are other Android flagship phones that are as impressive as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge — perhaps even more impressive, depending on whom you ask — but Samsung’s size and marketing muscle doesn’t leave room for much else at the top of the Android camp. Next week, however, a new smartphone will be unveiled that is shaping up to be one of the most exciting smartphones of 2016, and it might just steal some of the limelight away from Samsung among enthusiastic Android fans.

Now, photos of a live OnePlus 3 that is powered on have seemingly leaked for the first time. More →

OnePlus 3 finally has a release date: June 14th

When OnePlus released its first Cyanogen-powered smartphone back in 2014, it was one of the biggest surprises of the year. The phone was an incredible value for Android fans looking to stray a bit from the mainstream, packing specs and a design that could have easily commanded far more than its modest asking price. 2015’s sequel pushed things even further, offering improved hardware along with even better specs compared to rival smartphones at the time. Now, the world is eagerly awaiting the OnePlus 3, the third iteration of OnePlus’s flagship smartphone model.

Good news, Android fans: The wait is almost over. More →
