OnePlus 3 unboxing and first look
posted by Victor H. / Jun 16, 2016, 9:08 AM
The OnePlus 3 has arrived with a splash: a 5.5" phone with a stylish design and body built out of a solid, one piece of machined aluminum, it sports the Snapdragon 820 system chip, Android's most powerful one at the moment, yet it comes at a price that's nearly half that of its rivals.
Of course, we were quite excited to welcome it to our office: we received the full OnePlus 3 reviewer's edition box including all OnePlus 3-related merchandise and the phone itself.
charger (also a separate purchase).We will unbox the OnePlus 3 first, but also take a look at the OnePlus Loop VR headset (a separate purchase), the five thin and good-looking OnePlus 3 official cases, and the stylish car
So what's in the box? The OnePlus 3 is there front and center, then there is quick user guide and a SIM ejector, and finally, the powerful new Dash wall charger and a USB-C cable for charging and syncing the phone. The Dash charger is an interesting new addition. It's a super-powerful 20-watt (5 volts, 4 amps) wall charger that is protected against overheating and delivers up to 63% of charge in just half an hour. That could well be the fastest charging phone on the planet right now, on par with the impressively fast LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, and Oppo phones.
All in all, the packaging is neatly arranged, there are even special clips for the USB-C cable (it's in the signature for OnePlus red color) that make it easy to roll it in a neat circle.
Check out our OnePlus 3 video unboxing right above and stay tuned for the full review that's coming up in a few days with detailed battery, camera and performance tests.

Not quite true. Camera, unlike Samsung supports Camera2 API. The battery life is average, not sub par. RAM management is a question of custom rom as Oneplus released the kernel source. But yes, this phone is not for non-geeks.

Just got my new one plus. Initial expression phone looks beautiful with great build quality. Comparing camera to my iPhone 6s plus and s7 edge is of lower quality. Sound is okay. Screens looks good. I bought this as a gift for my father to replace his s6. But he didn't like phone due to its size so ultimately my moms one plus x got upgraded ;)
