Value For Money
While everyone used to tout earlier OnePlus devices as flagship killers, I would say that with OnePlus 6, this company has set new standards which others might have to kill. I would not be saying that if you can't afford the Samsung's and the Pixel's of this world, then go for the OnePlus 6. Instead, it makes more sense to directly opt for this phone.

From tying up with Avengers to placing its OTT billboards directly alongside Samsung’s at major places, OnePlus went all out with its new phone. Too much hype or substance? This was the question asked by the people who were not the early adopters of the OnePlus 6 smartphone. When I got the device in my hands, I too had this question. So what is the right answer?
As more and more companies are bringing out phones with notch displays, the design is not really a big differentiating factor these days. Saying that, OnePlus 6 does feels premium in terms of looks. The glass back adds that royal touch to the device. The mirror black variant which I have is a bit slippery though. So you would be good with the rubber case which comes with the box.
The phone comes with a 6.28 inch Full HD+ display. Phew! That’s too big a phone you might think. But the dimensions of the phone are exactly similar to the previous generation OnePlus 5 and 5T. This means more screen presence in the same form factor.
The AMOLED display makes watching movies, playing games and overall display a pleasant experience. The presence of the Gorilla Glass 5 add robustness to the device.
With Snapdragon 845 and 8 GB of RAM, there is nothing in the world of mobile that this phone cannot run. No task is too big and no application is heavy for this beast. The same goes for the 6 GB RAM variant. These are pure powerhouses when it comes to performance. I repeat, throw any game or app at OnePlus 6 and it will never fail you.
The phone comes with a 16 MP + 20 MP camera at the back. While this might seem like the megapixel count on the earlier OnePlus devices, the real life performance is better. The phone easily compares with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Google Pixel 2 in camera department.
For videos, the phone has Optical Image Stabilisation and Electrical Image Stabilisation (Gyro) both. This ensures that if you are recording a video while walking or perhaps while travelling, the outcome will not be shaky.
On the front, there is a 16 MP camera which promises amazing selfies with great amount of details. The front camera too comes with gyro Electrical Image Stabilization which is good enough for your video shoots via the front facing camera.
There is 3300 mAh battery inside the hood. While this is not really huge, by no means it is a pain point. The battery lasts well to the late evening. Moreover, the dash charge ensures that you get quick juice on the go. I mean, seriously, with OnePlus devices, dash charges is a huge relief as I never charge my phone completely!
