Analyst says that the OnePlus 3 Plus is coming
posted by Alan F. / Oct 09, 2016, 12:16 PM
While Jiutang didn't mention any rumored specs in his post, we wondered what a premium version of the OnePlus 3 might look like. First thing that occurred to us is that the resolution of the screen should get bumped to 1440 x 2560. A OnePlus 3 Plus would also have to feature a larger screen, perhaps in the vicinity of 6-inches. Because enhancing the display would have a negative affect on battery life, we'd hike the capacity of the cell by 30% to 3900mAh. A Snapdragon 821 SoC might be employed, and a dual camera setup found on the back.
To be honest, this seems like one of those rumors that should definitely be consumed with the addition of a grain of NACL (salt). After giving this some thought, you can reach the conclusion that the OnePlus 3 is pretty much highly-spec'd as is.

I don't know. The HTC 10 takes it home for me. 1+ is cool and all, but their after sale support is terrible.

I switched yesterday to the OP3 and I like it a lot. So far I don't even really miss a custom rom, but I do think it will come when there is a good 7 rom out there. I really like the dual sim option, only minor downside of that, is whatsapp. But I hardly use whatsapp on my work number anyway.

Best value yes, best overall phone? Not even close. Does Not have the best screen, doesn't have the best camera, doesn't have water resistance, does not have any standing feature. In my list are 3. S7 Edge, HTC 10 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Even though it doesn't have a million half baked gimmicky features, they do BEST all the fundamental tech. No battery issues, No water resistant issues, NO LAG, No bloatware, No heavy UI, No explosions, and yes a very reasonable price. 6GB RAM is a stand alone feature for me. Camera is arguably very good. Display is also very very good. Performance is top notch!! What else would you expect from a "flagship"?? Buggy, slow and stupid looking Iris scanner?? Useless, flashy edge display?? Or also useless multi window??? (Idk how Samsung phones handle that feature with such a heavy UI, thus it lags as hell) Wireless charging is fine, not ground breaking though as it still need a stupid charging pad and charging rate is way slower than normal charging. It's not a must have feature in any way. If it's just contact less charging, that's great. Water proofing also not a must have as every person protects their phones anyway. In the past also we didn't have that feature and still we managed using valuable smartphones just fine. Aren't we. Good to have but not a must have for sure. The killer feature for me is the price. $400 vs $650/$750/$850

There is no phone that has NO issues, including the ones you mentioned. I'm not saying it isn't a good smartphone, but it isn't flawless either. There has never been and will never be a flawless smartphone. Hell, there isn't even a flawless dumbphone, and they only do a tenth of what a smartphone does.

If you're speaking best bang for the buck, I'd call it a tie between the OnePlus 3 and Axon 7. If you're talking about best overall Android phone I'd give it to the S7 Edge in lieu of Note 7s becoming unmarketable, or the Pixel XL sadly.

Omg they should do something about their branding. It's ridiculous! If your phone is called OnePlus models shouldve been like "A", "B", "C"... or something.

4 inch would be great , with exactly the same features off the one++3. An iPhone 4 size is what I'm looking for. Maybe I would actually buy the ip4se. Love that size. Great for going out and very small so it doesn't bulge or look big.

I'd like to see a 3+ with the same specs than the 3 but with 128GB or microSD support and a bigger battery (plus that'd make the phone thicker so no camera bump). Also, maybe the fingerprint reader on the back? That'd be like the cherry on top. The resolution is perfect, the CPU is perfect, the camera is good enough, the design is ok I guess, the quick charge is great, the OS is very good and there's always Cyanogenmod. I really don't have anything to complain about the OnePlus 3. Yeah, it doesn't have any impressively innovative or awesome new unbelievable feature but it doesn't seem to lack anything important either. It's the most well rounded phone of the year and for a good price.
