How is the Speaker Quality? Many people asking us about the technology behind the impressive sound quality output at speaker, here is the answer?
The loud speaker on the OnePlus 3 is placed at the bottom and it’s a mono-speaker. However the sound output is surprisingly loud and output is commendable even at around 80-85% levels. At 100% there is a slight drop in quality but not many will notice it (not talking about you, audiophiles). And yes, you might have missed few calls on the OnePlus 2, you will not on the OnePlus 3

Heating Issue on OnePlus 3?
OnePlus 2 had the issue of going warm even on moderate usage and then shoot up the temperature during heavy gaming, until recently when an OTA started throttling the processor. This was also due to the fact that the Snapdragon 810 was notorious. With the OnePlus 3, it’s all good news, that’s in-spite of the phone having a metal build. Even during elongated periods of heavy gaming, it never went beyond acceptable temperatures and stayed within 43 degrees mark.
We will get into greater details in our review, but for now, the Oxygen OS as of now is surprisingly very stable and we hardly encountered issues. No app crashes or forced crashes and overall experience was super smooth. There are some additions like enhanced SHELF for adding more widgets, resizing the icons in the drawer but is rather light and simple. There are no glaring bugs and hope OnePlus maintains this quality.
How is the Vibration on OnePlus 3?
Yes, the one on the OnePlus 2 was rather weak but OnePlus 3 has a decent vibration motor. There was no instance where we missed a ring. Not the best one out there, but above average for sure.
Cameras and their performance in crisp?
OnePlus 2 had one of the good cameras in its range and the OnePlus 3 improves on this. The 16 MP primary shooter comes with f/2.0 aperture and does pretty well in color reproduction and overall image processing speed. Locking focus is also decent, though we would’ve loved a laser auto focus option. Slow motion videos come good and 4K videos can be shot as well.
The primary camera is the Sony IMX 298 sensor with 1.12 um pixel size while the secondary camera is Sony IMX 179 with 1.4 um pixel size. The phone also comes with SMILE capture for auto selfie
How is the cellular call quality on OnePlus 3?
It’s decent, but not great. It doesn’t match the likes of high end phones from Samsung or Motorola or HTC, but better than many other Chinese phones in its price segment.
The battery capacity is 3000 mAh. How does it perform? Does it drain very fast?
With light to moderate usage, you should be able to hit the evening but certainly not a full day phone for heavy users. If you were to turn on the auto-brightness, the battery life goes down by a bit. However if you were to turn on the DARK MODE, it can improve the results. There is no erratic draining observed, but the performance can certainly be improved given the fact that Snapdragon 820 is highly battery efficient and Android M has doze mode and N will bring more efficiency.
One positive we observed is the phone didn’t drain a lot during heavy gaming. A little more than one hour of heavy gaming affected the battery by ~18%, which is good to see.
How is the build, look and feel of the OnePlus 3?
The OnePlus 3 looks premium and feels premium too. The phone is sleek and good to hold. Certainly not easy for single-handed use, but you will get used to it. The phone is slippery though and you can buy a case. There is a sandstone option too in case you were a fan of it!
Is the phone heavy?
That’s something we frequently get asked for any metal build phone. But the OnePlus 3 is sleek at 7.5mm and 158 gms in weight and feels good to hold.
Is it a worthy upgrade from OnePlus 2?
Depends on one’s need and preference. The Snapdragon 820 is surely a good processor but if you’re a light to the moderate user the OnePlus 2 should suffice, especially after the new Marshmallow update. But if you have a OnePlus One then it definitely makes sense to upgrade with the support for Cyanogen coming to an end soon.
