Design And Display
The OnePlus 3 smartphone boasts of a sweet design. By that I mean that the phone is  light weight but at the same time it has a full metal body. The width is optimally thin and it will not drop out of your hands.

Now coming to the display, the phone features a 5.5 inch full HD display. It got Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection which makes the phone a sturdy one.

Performance
6 GB of RAM and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, need I say more. The OnePlus 3 simply blew me mind in terms of performance. It got a score in excess of 1,25,000 on Antutu.

Oneplus 3 benchmarkFor regular users: Download as many apps as you want and keep as many tabs open in the browser, the phone will serve you well. It is fast and zippy. At the same time, the Oxygen OS on top of the Android Marshmallow is really stable.

For gamers: If you are looking for a gaming phone, then OnePlus 3 should be your pick. I played heavy games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5 and Walking War Robots on this device. The graphics were top notch and heating was minimal. A superb gaming device.

Camera
The phone sports a 16 MP rear camera and a 8 MP front facing camera. Before I say anything, do check out the images below.Click on them in order to enlarge.

As you can see the result is pretty impressive. Obviously, it is not as good as the iPhone 6S and Samsung Galasy S7 but that does not means that the phone cannot provide you crisp images. The performance is good in low light mode from front facing camera as well as the rear camera. The three images which you see above have been clicked in normal mode, HD mode and then the HDR mode. The camera of the OnePlus 3 performs best in the HD mode.

Battery
The 3000 mAh battery could have proven to be the Achilles Heel of the OnePlus 3 but thankfully they have provided a dash charge adapter inside the box. This is a 4 Amp charger and provides a 67 per cent charge in 30 minutes. This is an awesome feature and I never faced any issue of low battery due to this. The Science behind the charge is that the adapter dissipates the heat and does not lets it reach your phone.

Verdict
There are some phones which are hero and some are zero. The OnePlus 3 is a true hero. It has the best processor, 6 GB of RAM, a rocking camera and dash charge feature. A big thumbs up from my side.
