The OnePlus 3 was introduced quite recently. This is the company’s third-gen flagship, and unlike its predecessors, it sports a full metal design. Initial reactions to the device are actually quite good, the phone is really well built, it comes with high-end specs, and despite all that it costs only $399 (price varies from region to region). The device’s aggressive RAM management and inaccurate (oversaturated) colors of the display have been pointed out as the phone’s weak points, but the company addressed that really fast by releasing an update to review devices, an update which will be hitting all (consumer) phones really soon.
That being said, it seems like some users are experiencing some additional, real issues with the display. There are two videos embedded down below, and they basically show off a yellowish smudge on OnePlus 3’s display which is covering a large portion of the display when the display is displaying gray tones. Granted, this sounds more like a software issue than anything else, but it could be a hardware issue, we cannot know for sure. It seems like this issue is not affecting a large portion of users though, and it will be interesting to see whether OnePlus will address this issue, explain the situation, or perhaps the upcoming update fixes the issue altogether. In case you’re having this problem, you can return your device within 15 days, OnePlus won’t even ask why you returned it, so there’s that.
The OnePlus 3 features a 5.5-inch fullHD Optic AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of non-expandable internal storage. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, and a 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package. The 16-megapixel OIS + EIS camera can be found on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel is available up front. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on this phone, and the company’s Oxygen OS is available on top of it. The OnePlus 3 also comes with a fingerprint scanner which is placed below the display, and it is protected by a sheet of ceramic. The device is already available in a number of regions, and as already mentioned, it costs around $399, depending on where you live. If you’d like to know more about this phone, read our full review.
