Top OnePlus 3 features: Why third-gen OnePlus is a big deal?

OnePlus 3, the much-awaited smartphone, was released through Loop VR headset on June 14 at Rs. 27,999 via Amazon India. The smartphone has already received rave reviews among various popular tech portals because of the integration of wide range of advanced features. In this article, we will explore the top features of OnePlus 3. After reading the article, you will know what makes OnePlus 3 so special despite its massive pricing.


Manufactured in full metal unibody, the OnePlus 3 is manufactured using a premium space-grade aluminum alloy, which is well known for its notable strength, light weight, and premium look and feel. Instead of molding and connecting several pieces, OnePlus 3 is designed using a single clab of the robust and durable metal to produce a seamless and resilient build. Moreover, the soft curves are balanced against sharp lines to produce not only a notable impression but also to provide a comfortable grip to handle the device in any environment.

With a thickness of just 7.3 mm, OnePlus 3 features an alter slider, which provides complete control over all your notifications. You can easily toggle between all notifications, priority notifications or silent settings without grabbing the device.

While the Graphite color variant of OnePlus 3 is calibrated to capture the natural crystalline nature of titanium mineral ore, the Soft Gold color variant features the typical classical golden tones found in traditional Japanese art for a sophisticated look and feel. Moreover, a customized sandblasting finish provides a fine-grained matte finish, which brings out a natural metallic luster.


Featuring a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED FHD display, the OnePlus 3 offers Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. You will be able to view real life pictures using the latest display technology.


OnePlus 3 offers Snapdragon 820 processor, which works 35 percent faster and also provides 40 percent boost in graphics rendering than the previous counterpart, OnePlus 2. The 64GB internal storage enables you to store plenty of files. The drive is based on UFS 2.0 technology, which is capable of working up to three times faster than eMMC5.1. Moreover, the 3000mAh battery provides enough power for a whole day depending upon the actual usage.

Talking about RAM, the OnePlus 3 is equipped with 6GB LPDDR4 RAM, which is new to the smartphone arena. You will be able to play 4K videos and graphic-intensive games without any delay or lag. OnePlus 3 will be future proof because of 6GB RAM. You need not have to buy another phone again.

Dash Charge

OnePlus 3 features a unique Dash Charge technology, which charges the device to up to 60 percent in just 30 minutes. It produces a larger electric current instead of increasing pressure to provide stable, consistent and safe charging speeds. You will be able to play high-intensity games even during charging without compromising on performance. Moreover, the heat generated through dash charging is dispersed via the Dash Charge Adapter and hence OnePlus 3 will not heat like other competing smartphones.


OnePlus 3 offers a premium camera with Electronic (EIS) and optical (OIS) stabilization technologies, a robust manual model, RAW image support, High-Dynamic Range – HDR (balanced photos), and Dynamic De-noise (to reduce grains). Moreover, you will be able to capture selfies via smile with the 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Fingerprint Sensor

OnePlus 3 offers improved fingerprint sensor which is capable of unlocking the device in just 0.2 seconds. Manufactured using a premium ceramic material, the sensor dynamically monitors your finger movements and improves the scanning speed after a while. OnePlus has also implemented several security features into the sensor.


OnePlus 3 is equipped with OxygenOS on top of Android Marshmallow, which is the latest stable platform.


The bottom-facing speakers are integrated with Dirac HD Sound technology alongside OnePlus Music. Moreover, the dual microphone with noise cancellation enables you to talk effectively.
