Home New Launches OnePlus 6: First Impressions

OnePlus 6: First Impressions


OnePlus really sticks by its tagline – Never Settle. Barely 6 months go by and the company puts out another update to its product. This time, after the rather nice OnePlus 5T, we have the OnePlus 6. Here are our first impressions.


With the OnePlus 6, we have a similar (yet somewhat changed) look, a more powerful processor, and a new screen. There’s also a dual lens camera set up, this time with optical image stabilisation for the main camera. Video recording up to 4K 60fps and a 720p 480fps slow-motion mode also feature.

It’s a fairly powerful phone, powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, along with 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM depending on which variant you pick.

There’s also a large 3300mAh battery, with a power packed 5V 4A Dash charger in the box. No wireless charging though, despite the phone being made of glass on the back this time.


Speaking of Glass, it’s the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that the device has both on its front and back. And of course, with that 6.28 inch screen, there is a notch on the top. OnePlus has been spending some time pointing out that the notch includes a multi-colour LED, so that’s some compensation to those who’d rather have done without it.

On the color front, we’re being Midnight Black, Ceramic White, and the more glossy Metallic Black. They’re all rather good looking, but we feel the Metallic Black version will steal the show.

Whilst stick to a 1080p display, OnePlus has done a pretty good job with the AMOLED screen they picked. It’s bright and vibrant, and pretty good to look at!


While India prices are yet to be revealed, it’s listed internationally starting at $579, which is just under Rs 39,000. While that’s expensive no doubt, it’s still cheaper than its equivalent counterparts. You could save even more on this upgrade though, just sell your current phone on Cashify before you jump ship!
