OnePlus has been established as a kind of flagship-killer for quite some time, but with the OP6 it has gone one step further. In our household we also have a S9, so that the direct comparison was possible.
Pro:
– Good battery, holds with about 4-5h display time (thereof performance-intensive use e.g. games, maps) a good day, to mostly longer.
– Extremely fast. Much faster with Apps, install, uninstall etc. Than the S9. Incredibly smooth and reminds the OS of Apple’s processing speed
– top. Extremely high quality.
– Oxygen OS gives you a lot of possibilities, is very clearly arranged and personal, easier to handle than e.g. S9
– Fingerprinting and face recognition work incredibly well, even under bad light conditions.

Con
– Good camera, but compared to Samsung and Apple even worse, especially in bad light
– Glass back very fingerprint sensitive

I came across Oneplus rather by chance while searching for a new smartphone. For me the risk to buy a mobile phone from a manufacturer I never heard of before was worth it. I have been using the OP6 with 8/256 GB memory for a good month now and am still enthusiastic about it.

The device fits well in the hand, is fast and has not shown any weaknesses so far. The battery is charged from 0 to 100% in just under 70 minutes and lasts 1 to 1.5 days with my usage pattern. AccuBatery Pro shows after one month of use that the battery lasts 11 hours 20 min with the display on and 172 hours with the display off. These values are in line with my experience, so they could be correct. It takes really good pictures. For me this is rather secondary, I don’t expect my mobile phone to compete with my DSLR. But under normal lighting conditions the quality is really good.

I also noticed the fingerprint sensor to unlock it. It reacts almost without delay.

My conclusion:
The OP6 is a really cool part that I like optically and despite the 6,2 inch it fits quite good in my hand.
I’m used to the (also for me new) Notch by now, but you can also switch it off if you don’t want to have it.
Oneplus also does without unnecessary software stuff.
All in all I can recommend the OP6. Just a great part.

I own the pixel 2 Xl and wanted to give One Plus a chance.
I think the design is great and I think it’s one of the nicer devices, besides it just feels like a 800 Euro mobile phone.
Display is great and the resolution disturbs zero, colors and the minimal borders I like very much.
Sound for a loudspeaker very good, but can’t keep up with stereo, but the jack is there.
The lack of certification for water resistance bothers me a bit personally, because I like to take my pixel with me in the pool to take pictures on vacation. br>The Google mobile phone is the king of mobile photos for me and friends can’t believe that a mobile phone generates such pictures.br>>br>Because I personally set a high value on this criterion, I will send this phone back.br>>br> Nevertheless, I think the phone is very good and would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a current phone with good specs at a fair price. It is worth every cent.
Maybe it will be the next one for me. If I would not know the quality of the pixel phone, I would have kept it.

The OnePlus 6 is my first Android smartphone. I have only used Apple devices since 2009, but I have always followed Android development and watched it curiously. Then on Sunday my iPhone 6 gave up the ghost after 3.5 years, so this time I chose an Android device because of the huge curiosity and then the new OnePlus 6 (my friends have been using the OnePlus 1 for years and are still enthusiastic about it, so I chose this manufacturer with a bit of prejudice and did not make 100 cross comparisons, because I also needed a new smartphone quickly)

The jump from the iPhone 6 with iOS 11.4 to the OnePlus 6 with Android 8.1 is gigantic. I notice the direct difference in really all areas. In the processor, the screen, the camera and also in the operating system. I get along well with both operating systems, but Android offers me a bit more depth – so it seems to me – and so far doesn’t make me regret buying it at all. On the contrary – I’m glad to have made the switch this time and even more happy about using a really great smartphone, which at first hardly leaves anything to be desired.

My requirements for the new device were only 08/15 basics like:
– Shortly check social media (Reddit/Twitter/Instagram)
– Read news, browse and stay in touch with friends via WhatsApp
– More battery capacity than the former iPhone 6 to last for two days
– Take good/satisfactory pictures
– Be halfway supplied with updates compared to other manufacturers
– Nearly Stock-Android
– 3, 5mm jack connector – I still like to use the analogue solution

The OnePlus 6 fulfils all the points for me easily, it even surpasses them and I am always delighted how quickly it reacts.
For my part I am very satisfied and can only recommend it, especially to those who want to switch to Android or are looking for a device that has similar requirements to mine and are willing to pay this price.

Update after more than two weeks of use:
The 19:9 display still seems a bit big, but I now find it really pleasant to have so much space in all my apps and to look at a well illuminated display, which can also be calibrated in the settings.
This display, the speed and this long-lasting battery in combination make the smartphone a perfect everyday companion for me, which makes my iPhone completely forgotten. (This was my constant fear that I’m mistrusting my iPhone and that I might regret the switch to an Android device. Which fortunately turned out to be absolutely wrong! ) I am very fond of this Smartphone, because it confirms me every day again and again how well hardware and software make my everyday life a little bit better 😉

If you don’t want to read the whole review you can just read the conclusion.
I was an iPhone user until now but since iOS was bothering me a lot i wanted to switch to Android.
I was looking for a smartphone that has enough processing power and speed in general to play some mobile games and it definitely has. It will also have enough computing power for a few years without getting slow. At least that’s what I expect. The price/performance ratio is not to be neglected compared to the competition, I think.
The exterior: I think it looks very stylish especially with the Midnight Black design. I don’t like it when you see fingerprints everywhere. Even if it’s a glass back you can hardly see any fingerprints, which I think is very nice, but I personally will only use the phone with a cover anyway. The whole phone looks very well made and there is already a screen protector applied. The scope of delivery: A OnePlus charging cable and Dash Power Adapter is included. These feel really valuable and robust (much better than what I knew from Apple before) and charge the phone really fast thanks to Dash Charging! Just a dream if you need a little power in between. A simple silicone cover is also included. This is not the most beautiful one, but until my other case is delivered, it will serve its purpose.
The performance: 6GB/8GB memory (depending on which one chooses the 64/128/256 GB memory) and a Snapdragon 845 processor speak for themselves. But to whom this does not mean anything: performance, power and even more power. Face recognition and the fingerprint sensor to unlock the device work reliably and practically without any delay. A short tap on the fingerprint sensor is enough. (A tip from me: The finger that is mostly used to unlock the device is simply stored twice in the settings. Each time in a slightly different position. Thereby the finger is recognized clearly better again). PUBG Mobile and other mobile games run smoothly on highest settings and internet pages load in a split second with a good internet connection.
The operating system: As a former iOS user I got used to the operating system very fast and I was able to set everything as I wanted it. The only thing that bothered me were the default settings of the operating system. For example, it was set up so that the vibration motor came on every time the button was pressed, which just bothered me, and the face unlock is set by default to automatically unlock the phone when the display is on and the face is recognized, so you couldn’t even look at the lock screen. But after I went through all the settings once, that was the problem.
Other: The camera takes nice pictures. They are not the very best now, but they are easily enough for Instagram, Facebook and co. The display is only Full HD+, but the battery life benefits from that, too. I can’t see any single pixels in normal viewing. Colors are displayed either vividly or naturally, depending on your preference, and the viewing angles are also good, although not the best. The battery lasts for 1.5 to 2 days of moderate use and, as I mentioned earlier, it is quickly recharged. One of my few points of criticism is the speaker on the underside, which unfortunately doesn’t have the best sound. It’s enough for a YouTube video, but I wouldn’t want to listen to music with it. It also gets covered quite quickly so the sound becomes very quiet when you hold the phone in your hand. Also, the phone has no wireless charging despite the glass back, which would make this possible. However, this is manageable, as it can be charged so quickly with the cable. Also, the memory is not expandable, so you should be sure how much memory you need before you buy. To be sure, I chose the 128GB version.

Conclusion: Except for a few minor things like the sound of the lower speaker, the lack of wireless charging, the strange defaults of the operating system and the fact that you can’t expand the memory, I am absolutely thrilled with this phone. Clearly, I would recommend buying it if the points just mentioned can be tolerated.

As with many stands, after 3 years a new mobile phone is being offered. But the market has become so opaque. A few thoughts have helped me personally. br> br> br> At the beginning, for what do you use the mobile phone, what should it have. For me it was a good camera, reasonable battery life, a headphone jack and my dream, a Notch, as well as a large display. My previous S7 Edge is also not a small mobile phone, so that size only played a minor role. Much more important was the price question, must it be 800, 900, 1000 or even more € for a pocket phone?
The new Samsung devices were quickly out s9 and s9+ are said to have very poor battery life, a camera comparison test showed – only pictures with max. medium quality, no Notch.
Nokia, well, display edges to Athens, no Notch, a design like a brick and simply already damaged from earlier – also out.
Iphone – too expensive and also only 4 GB Ram, a Notch, but not a nice one.
Google Pixel 2 or now 3 are optically not my cup of tea, photo quality good, but for me not impressive enough, but all this about data octopus Google is running, but it’s already very annoying.
We still have the Huawei / Honor devices. Of course there are plenty of mid-range phones, like the Honor 10 and P20 Honor Play …. but for the lower prices you have to cut back on display, features or camera / battery.
Xiaomi with the Pocophone – as good as the tests are, as satisfied users are, I don’t like a direct copy from the iPhone. The notch size has to be to your liking.

OnePlus was left – the positive reactions have confirmed me once again. A camera that takes decent pictures, stabilized video in 4k 60fps, slow-motion function, a battery that lasts for a day and a half, a nice clean Android, 8GB Ram (at 128 GB), a great display and a wonderful haptic. I don’t regret the change and can only recommend it.

2 minor deficiencies, USB C only data rate 2.0, and only one mono speaker. But I had no other choice with the S7, so it’s no problem for me. I would buy it again anytime. if this review has helped in any way, I would be happy to use the helpful function.

The Oneplus advertising slogan promises too much. I have been the happy owner of a Oneplus Two with modified software for over 4 years now to be provided with the latest security updates. But with current games even under minimal graphics there was not much fun to play. But with the Oneplus 6 this has changed completely. Everything runs smoothly even under maximum graphics. The change from the old to the new device ran smoothly and quickly.
The technical specifications already betray that a super device is offered at a top price.

The service life is only one day for me, but I am very satisfied with the device as a whole.

A special plus point for the Oneplus is its software policy. Even if the manufacturer himself would no longer offer an update, everyone is free to install any other Android-based software. For this purpose there are also good instructions from the official side, which make the installation easy and understandable. If something should go wrong, the support team hopes that it will continue and reset the device to the factory settings. This is one of the unique selling points of Oneplus.

All in all, I can recommend the device for purchase so far and join previous speakers and other techblogs.
