OnePlus just launched its flagship OnePlus 3 smartphone at a price of Rs. 27,999
Quick Note: (All my points are based on comparison with OnePlus 2)
Slimmer than all other OnePlus Devices.
Quick on the FingerPrint - I mean really quick. My OP2 isn't this quick. it truly feels like 0.2 seconds fingerprint recognition.
There was already an update available Oxygen OS 3.1.2 - I am not sure why people have problems with this OS, I used Cynogen on OPO, then when i got my OP2 with Oxygen OS 2.0 i didn't feel it was that different form Cynogen, it definitely was not fully polished version but since the beta release of Oxygen 3.0 I have been using it daily and it has been really great with no issues whatsoever.
I was a bit disappointed regarding the Battery but the AMOLED display should help a bit. Speaking of display its really amazing, i think this is the best 1080p panel out there... comparing the same display side-by-side with the OP2 using the same wallpaper, OP3 shines out. It gets really bright as well.
While typing this I am updating the OP3 and its on Charging as well. It didn't get hot at all. and the battery went up from 42% to 70% in about 5 mins
Camera is really amazing much better than the last iteration. when you compare Side-By-Side you can see the true details in the textures.
Sound Quality is much better in speakers & the earpiece. After using OPO the OP2 speakers were minuscule in front of that, but now its much louder and crispier than OP2
Things that i didn't like:
Notification LED - I really like the big led of OPO, as i could see the phone anywhere in the room and know if there was any notification but OP2's led was smaller and i couldn't read it unless i am 5 - 6 feet away. same goes for OP3 it seems, i think they are smaller now but maybe thats just my eyes :p
Camera bump - I would have appreciated the extra 300 mAh battery rather than the camera bump
Its been just a few minutes since I've got this phone like literally 30 mins so these are just initial impressions of the device.. will have more as i get to use it more.
Here are some pictures of the Unboxing Experience. Overall Unboxing experience was really great. There were no regrets in purchasing this device.
