    ONEPLUS 3 REVIEW UPDATE: NEW SOFTWARE AND A NEW COLOUR, BUT AT A HIGHER PRICE
    Update 05/08/16: The best budget phone of year has seen a few updates since it’s introduction, and a new much pricier rival in the Please or Register to view links. The first thing I should address is the price-rise, as the OnePlus now costs £329 in the UK as opposed to £309. You can thank Brexit for that. It’s still a bargain though, especially for what you get in return.

    On to better news and OnePlus has been snappy in sending out updates to its flagship, the latest of which addresses some minor issues people had. OxygenOS version 3.2.1 tweaks the RAM management to take full advantage of that 6GB, keeping apps in memory longer and reducing the amount of reloads you have to do. I didn’t really have much issues with this previous, but it’s clear the update has made a positive difference.

    An sRGB colour mode has been added too, for those who found the default view a little overcooked. To access this you need to enable developer options and then flick the sRBG toggle. Personally, I would rather have that extra oomph and colour it had originally but it does look much more accurate with this new mode switched on. It’s all down to personal preference though.

    Finally, OnePlus has started shipping a new colour. It’s gold on the back, with a white front, and it looks good. It’s not as gaudy as other gold phones, and the white front is a nice contrast. I was disappointed OnePlus only had one colour option to begin with, so it’s nice to see another added so quickly after launch.

    WHAT IS THE ONEPLUS 3?
    Original Review: After two near misses, the third iteration of OnePlus’ grand experiment to show that great phones shouldn’t cost over £500 hits the mark. The OnePlus 3 is a marvel – a stunning phone in almost every way that takes the game to the Please or Register to view links, Please or Register to view links and even the Please or Register to view links.

    Previous OnePlus devices compromised, but the OnePlus 3 doesn’t. It has a lovely design, fast-charging, NFC for mobile payments and you don’t need a silly invite to actually buy one.

    If you want an Android phone off-contract, this might just be the perfect choice.

    ONEPLUS 3 – DESIGN
    Each OnePlus phone to date has offered a marked improvement on what has gone before. The original OnePlus One was an all-plastic affair, with a somewhat strange "sandstone" finish. The Please or Register to view links enhanced the body with metal sides, but retained the plastic rear.

    The OnePlus 3 offers an upgrade once again, this time by way of a metal and glass design. It's available in "Graphite" – a muted grey – and its 7.4mm-thick aluminium frame makes this handset a delight to both look at and hold.

    A 5.5-inch phone may still not be for everyone, but the OnePlus 3 is among the more manageable phones with such a screen size. The finish is excellent too: the aluminium rear is anodised sports the same type of non-shiny look you’ll find on an iPhone.
