Each time that Flagship killer is left that they were from the beginning, for good and bad, but OnePlus is still among the big and their terminals are expected as rivals for the other flagships. We do not know how many there will be this year, but at least we have already tried one thoroughly and we told you in the OnePlus 6 Review.

The one that at the moment is the unique mobile of the manufacturer in 2018 bursts almost in the middle of the year with the last thing of Qualcomm and some guts that promise “the speed that we need”. True to tradition, OnePlus update their offspring on an aesthetic level by betting on their own software to spice up Google’s, keeping a price below some of its rivals.

The first thing you should do after buying Android device is to launch VPN app designed for mobile devices. Virtual private network application will allow user to access the content that is even blocked in his location and most importantly it will protect user’s device from being hacked while being connected to public WiFi.


Although there is no suspense too much, the appearance of OnePlus 6 has become the most familiar stranger. Before the official debut, this flagship that has attracted attention has been exposed to 7788 by the accessories dealer and roadside messages. Is the appearance of OnePlus 6 like that? Don’t worry, surprises are behind you.

The front of the fuselage, the OnePlus 6 follows the flagship trend and uses Notch’s design with a 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED screen that provides a wider field of view, and supports DCI-P3 wide color gamut display with a resolution of the FHD+ level. From the perspective of being able to get started with the scene, the detail and color of the screen have improved.

From the aspect of screen share ratio performance, the display area from bottom to notch is further reduced. Even users who are used the Oneplus 5T can feel a significant increase in visual effects. With the gesture operation interface, there is no pressure with one hand.

The biggest surprise came from the innovation of the body material and finally transitioned from the all-metal body to the double-sided glass. The 5th generation of Corning Gorilla Glass is used on the back and is integrated with the middle frame. The surface has AF coating and has an anti-fingerprint effect. Because of the use of glass, the feel has just become comfortable.

OnePlus 6 offers three colors, Crescent Moon, Moorish Black, and Bright Porcelain Black, as well as the Special Edition of the Avengers, which was created in conjunction with Marvel. At the same time, there are classic wood grain and carbon fiber zebra shells, which can satisfy different users’ preferences.

The most attractive spot on the scene is the version of the crescent moon, which is different from the rendered image. The real device texture of the crescent-white version is even more outstanding. The sleek body lines are matched with a matte textured box and are more sublime.

The rear layout adopts vertical aligned dual camera, fingerprint recognition is also placed on the back, and the matching area and the middle frame part adopt the same color, which does not make the back look too monotonous and has a certain degree of recognition.

The classic slide-type switch is not absent, and the power button is placed on the right side of the fuselage, and the volume button is placed on the lower left side. It should be a consideration of the ease of one-handed operation.

Finally, in terms of interfaces, the 3.5mm headphone jack was not absent due to the presence of Oneplus cloud earphone, and a Type-C interface supporting fast charging was also provided. Although the trend of wireless audio devices, but for the pursuit of sound quality for users, the use of wired devices to listen to songs will still make some people feel at ease.

Operating System Experience

OnePlus 6 runs on Android 8.1-based H2OS 5.1 and continues to retain the pure interface and operating experience close to native Android while adding customization capabilities for local use.

Feel clean interface, inherit the features of the original system without too many complicated elements, the operation is as much as possible with the Android 8.1 native version, through the slide out of the application drawer. Slide to the left to see a negative screen, no ads, rare refreshments.


In addition to a variety of color modes available, the new system also provides different options for Notched display. The user can choose to expose the display of the concave area, or the dark color notification bar can be resident, and the concave area can be visually displayed” The “hidden”.


In providing easy-to-use features for everyday use, practical options such as lock screen fingerprint quick payment and game mode are not absent. So even if it is close to the original system experience, but on the degree of convenience, H2OS 5.1 does not lose many mainstream custom systems. On the other hand, the sleekness of the Snapdragon 845 processor on the OnePlus 6 is a perfect match.

However, the IMX398 sensor is larger in size (1/2.6″), and the area per unit of pixels has been increased from 1.12 to 1.22 μm, providing a larger light-sensing area, and the large f/1.7 aperture has brought about lens quality and edge imaging quality. Certain challenges.

The IMX519 and the first echelon of the IMX380 and other sensors have a certain gap, but the imaging performance of mobile phones has never been a simple hardware stacking, software and algorithms are also essential, below we may wish to see through the samples.

The light conditions at the conference site were more complex and brought certain challenges to the imaging of mobile phones. Oneplus 6 had a large aperture of f/1.7. The larger amount of light allowed it to adapt to a wider light range, bringing quite good results. Imaging performance.

The Low-light macro performance is acceptable, and the effect and details of the exploitation of the depth of field are worthy of recognition. The picture is also transparent enough.

The light in the product experience area is dark, but the performance of Oneplus 6 is still worthy of affirmation, the screen exposure is accurate, and the shadow details are also well preserved.
