The good

  • Much more affordable than the competition

The bad

OnePlus delivers another high quality but highly affordable premium handset with the OnePlus 6.

Chinese company OnePlus has established a cult following over the years for producing flagship level smartphones at a mid-range price tag that give the likes of Apple and Samsung a run for their money.

The OnePlus 6 is the company's latest attempt at shaking up its more premium rivals and after spending a few days with the handset, it's clear to see the phone has a lot going for it.

Design

  • All-glass body looks and feels every bit as premium as the competition.

  • Doesn't fare so well in low-light conditions.

Performance

  • One of the fastest handsets currently available.
  • Impressive software optimisation gives the OnePlus 6 an edge on competing handsets.

Battery life

  • 3,300mAh battery should get you through a day of moderate usage.
  • "Dash Charge" technology makes charging the OnePlus 6 quick and painless.

Verdict

  • Premium performance at a killer price.
  • The few small concessions are easy to look past.
