If there is any smartphone that knows to bring the smartphones with the flagship grade specs but at lower prices than the prevailing flagship smartphones, then that is certainly OnePlus. Because of such endeavors, the brand is also remarked as the flagship killer. And this time around, this popular smartphone brand came up with the OnePlus 6. The smartphone was launched globally in the third week of May. In less than two weeks of time, the smartphone is now available in Nepal.

In terms of design, the OnePlus 6 comes in an all-alluring glass body with Corning Gorilla 5 on both ends. In the past, OnePlus had been quite fixated with the metallic body despite the leap of other top-tier smartphone brands like Samsung and Apple. This time, OnePlus finally made the switch and it received galore of applauds from the fanbase. But despite the fancy upgrade, there is still not the wireless charging feature. Also, the smartphone is not yet IP certified. It means it is not water and dust resistant and the smartphone will get damaged in the prolonged exposure to water.
On the display front, OnePlus 6 comes with the tall 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display. The display contributes to 83.8% screen-to-body ratio, all thanks to the narrow bezels on the phone. Speaking of the bezels, the smartphone lacks bezels on the top and there is only a small notch to house the front camera, earpiece, and the sensors. The presence of the (nearly) all screen display and a notch on the top gives the vibe of the iPhone X. But it is not bad by any means, other smartphones like Vivo V9, Oppo F7, etc. have also adopted the similar design with the cutouts in the display.
In terms of performance, the OnePlus 6 is nowhere less than the prevailing flagship smartphones in the market. It comes with the powerful Snapdragon 845 chipset with an overkilling 6GB RAM alongside. On the storage front, the handset boasts 64GB of onboard storage. However, the smartphone lacks an SD card slot. So users cannot expand the storage on the device.
Talking about the camera, the OnePlus 6 comes with a dual camera setup on the rear panel. The camera duo comprises 16MP and 20MP sensors. Both the cameras boast a wide f/1.7 aperture lenses. So we can expect appealing images even when shooting during the low lights. And up front, there is a 16MP selfie shooter, which comes with an EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization).
On the software front, the smartphone enjoys the latest Android Oreo (v8.1) out of the box with Oxygen OS on the top. Google has also promised the smartphone with the regular software updates. The smartphone also comes with a 3300 mAh non-removable battery with the Dash Charging (Fast Charging) support.
