OnePlus 3 vs 3T

You have one last chance to get the cheaper OnePlus 3

You have one last chance to get the cheaper OnePlus 3

It’s a cut-throat world out there for a young Android phone that just wants to make it in this difficult job market. The OnePlus 3 was a sleeper candidate for the best phone of the year when it launched back in June, but it’s already been unceremoniously killed off just five months later.

Now, it’s not really dead — instead, it transformed into the upgraded and more powerful OnePlus 3T. But the upgrades come with a price hike, and with OnePlus discontinuing the current OnePlus 3 once it’s out of stock, this might be your last chance to get a OnePlus 3 at a lower price point.

OnePlus 3T Release Date

Refreshed OnePlus 3T is a powerhouse Android phone that fills the void left by Samsung

November 15th at 1:30 PM

Refreshed OnePlus 3T is a powerhouse Android phone that fills the void left by Samsung

Samsung still hasn’t figured out exactly why its popular Galaxy Note 7 smartphone was exploding in users’ hands, so it had no choice but to discontinue its flagship phablet and recall every single one of the millions of devices that had been sold to users. In doing so, Samsung left something of a void this holiday season. Shoppers looking to purchase a brand new flagship smartphone during the holidays always have plenty of great choices, but fresh new iPhones and Galaxy Note phones have been at the top of the list for the past five years. In 2016, however, Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t have any new competition from Samsung, which is instead pushing its eight-month-old Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to holiday shoppers.

There are a number of flagship Android phones out there that could fill this void. Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL are well reviewed, LG has a new phablet called the V20, and LeEco burst onto the scene recently with the affordable Le Pro3. On Tuesday, however, OnePlus took the wraps off of its refreshed OnePlus 3T, and it could be just what Android fans have been looking for. More →

OnePlus teases November 15th launch event for OnePlus 3T

OnePlus is an Android company that still receives plenty of attention for its high-end handsets that are sold around the world for reasonable products. The OnePlus 3 is already one of the best Android devices of the year, considering what you get for your buck. But OnePlus will not wait until 2017 to release a hot new smartphone. The Chinese company has been working on something else, and we’re going to see it next week. It’s probably the OnePlus 3T, which appeared in a bunch of rumors so far.

OnePlus 3T Release Date

OnePlus is officially releasing an even faster smartphone

OnePlus is officially releasing an even faster smartphone

When the OnePlus 3 launched earlier this year, it was one of the very fastest phones on the market. But since launch, new processors have come out and a new iPhone has launched, leaving OnePlus struggling to keep its crown as the fastest handset in town. That could all be about to change.

We’ve already heard rumors that OnePlus is going to launch a spec-bumped version, the OnePlus 3T, with a faster processor. Qualcomm seems to have just confirmed that, tweeting that “something new” is on the way from OnePlus, and it will have Qualcomm’s best Snapdragon 821 processor inside.

The next hot OnePlus phone might not be released until next year

The next hot OnePlus phone might not be released until next year

OnePlus is already rumored to soon release a mild update for the OnePlus 3, but that’s not the next phone coming from the Chinese handset maker that you should be excited about. Rather than replacing the OnePlus 3 with the OnePlus 3T, you’d be better off waiting for the OnePlus 4 that’s due next year, which should bring over a slew of improvements. More →

Leaks show OnePlus is about to release an even faster smartphone

Leaks show OnePlus is about to release an even faster smartphone

The OnePlus 3 is one of the fastest (and least explosive) big smartphones that you can currently buy. But it was released before Qualcomm unleashed its new Snapdragon 821 processor, and OnePlus doesn’t like having outdated specs.

As a result, it looks like OnePlus is planning on releasing a version of the OnePlus 3 with bumped-up specs called the OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus 3 RAM Screen

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

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

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

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 →

The OnePlus 3 might be incredibly cheap, new leak suggests

We’re getting closer and closer to the moment many Android users have been waiting for: The arrival of the OnePlus 3, the next “flagship killer” coming from the now-famous Chinese startup. The device launches in mid-June, and for the first time in three years, there’s not going to be an annoying invite system to buy it – at least according to current reports.

A few days ago we saw the full specs list and final design of the OnePlus 3, in documentation published on TENAA, the Chinese communications regulator, and a new report seems to reveal the incredibly affordable pricing structure of the 2016 OnePlus flagship. More →
