OnePlus 6 is what we expected and wanted from the Chinese manufacturer: an evolution. While the OnePlus 5 and 3 were not bad, the finishes were far from the top of the line of Android phones (Galaxy S9, Huawei P20 Pro, etc). This new release breaks with everything and shows us a new design with many things to consider.
We left the metal behind and finally got a back made of glass with metal edges. The fingerprint reader goes to the back with an arrangement that strongly reminds us of the Samsung Galaxy S9, and a double camera placed vertically. Below and silk screened on the glass, we have the logo of the firm.
The front of the terminal is the big protagonist with an impressive 6.28 inch screen in a very long format, 19:9. We stayed with FullHD+ resolution with 1080 x 2280 pixels, and AMOLED technology. While the change in OnePlus 6 has been very radical, they still don’t want to raise the resolution of the screen to a more conservative figure.
As expected, the OnePlus 6 joins the notch at the top, and in its defense we will say that the only frame we have remarkable, the bottom, is very successful and gives us a feeling of having a very good “full screen”. We’ll see if the decision not to go to an OLED panel takes its toll.
As additions, we have Corning Gorilla Glass, USB-C protection and we don’t lose the Alert Slider, the switch that manages notifications depending on where we put it.
The OnePlus 6 is a high-end product and we couldn’t expect less; it’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 that brings this device to life alongside the Adreno 630 GPU. Android version of Android is no surprise, and that’s good news, too, with Android 8.1 Oreo with OxygenOS, the custom layer (if you will) of OnePlus.
If anything characterizes the OnePlus devices is the extreme fluidity, and with such a powerful hardware coupled with a software so well treated by the manufacturer, the experience of using this mobile phone can not be less than magnificent. In the absence of some tests, we know for sure that this OnePlus 6 will be a brown beast.

As additions, we have the famous OnePlus ultra-fast charging, the Dash Charge that will help us to fill its 3300 mAh battery. Perhaps this figure seems a little low given the size of the screen, but as always happens, the range can vary. In addition, we have USB-C, Bluetooth and GPS, keeping NFC connectivity as usual along the way.
The cameras don’t seem to have changed much on paper, but now the rear allows us to use optical stabilization, the portrait mode and the possibility of using the portrait mode is maintained, although there is no 2X zoom on a telephoto. We do have the ultra-slow mode that the Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Huawei P20 Pro also have.
The 16 Mpx front camera will unlock the phone with our face, something that became fashionable in 2018 and that OnePlus was not going to ignore.
