OnePlus 5 Unveiled, Has Dual-camera And Looks Suspiciously Like An iPhone 7

I kid you not. At a glance, you may mistaken the new OnePlus latest smartphone, the OnePlus 5, as an iPhone 7. Seriously, if those curved edges don’t remind you have the iPhone 7, then perhaps the striking antenna bands at the top and bottom of the device would. Granted, the curved edges aren’t completely roundish like the iPhone 7, but still… Also, it has a dual camera setup too, complete with the ability to do iPhone 7 much advertised, Portrait Mode, and it is offered in a choice of “slate gray” or “midnight black” to boot, but with a slight twist. But more on that later. Whatever happen to OnePlus’s pride and joy, the signature sandstone finish? Continue reading OnePlus 5 Unveiled, Has Dual-camera And Looks Suspiciously Like An iPhone 7

OnePlus 3T Gets Sexy Midnight Black Hue, Available In Limited Quantity

OnePlus must be feeling the heat of the competitions. Perhaps, from mainstreamers like Samsung who is gearing up to announce the electronics giant’s latest flagship this week. Why? The independent company (who’s actually affiliated to Oppo, pffff…) had announced a successor to the OnePlus 3, the OnePlus 3T, barely six months after the 3 was unveiled. And just last week, we found another piece of news in our inbox: OnePlus 3T now has a new Midnight Edition which, in addition to limited online availability, OnePlus has collaborated with colette and Hypebeast to retail this very limited and arguably, sexy matte black iteration of the 3T.

OnePlus’s New Flagship Killer Goes Official, No Invites Required

When it comes to smartphones, OnePlus makes little to no ding prior to its new release, but when it does release, the China-based smartphone maker makes sure it does make a ding in the hard-spec. Speaking of which, OnePlus does indeed has a new phone, the OnePlus 3, which from the get go, all we can say is, we are tempted. Very tempted. We drawn to it not only by the beautiful, curved space-grade aluminum alloy unibody that measures a mere 7.3mm thin and the almost non-existence bezel, but also the hard-spec and innovations it has to offer, such as Dash Charge, a turbo-charging of sort, that promised to provide 6 hours of battery life with just 30 minutes of charge. But that’s not the only thing Dash Charge has installed. Continue reading OnePlus’s New Flagship Killer Goes Official, No Invites Required

OnePlus Slashes The Price Of Its “Flagship Killer” By $40, Permanently

Well, what do you know? OnePlus has slashed the price of its “flagship killer,” the OnePlus 2, to $349. That’s a good 40 bucks off the initial price tag when it was first introduced in July 2015. So, is it a sign of an upcoming flagship killer? We are not sure and won’t speculate either. Anywho, according to the horse’s mouth, the price cut is possible due to reduction in the cost to produce OnePlus 2 device. Adding that they believe it is the right time to introduce a new change and great things should be shared. But how is a price reduction, however small it maybe, possible for not-so-high volume device? Well, it wasn’t detailed, actually. So, I guess we will just have to take their words for it. Then again, why care when you are paying less, right? Continue reading OnePlus Slashes The Price Of Its “Flagship Killer” By $40, Permanently

Can you imagine a handset maker making drones? Nope we can’t, but our opinions will not affect China handset maker, OnePlus, from embarking on a prank that says they do and even setup an elaborate web page, detailing the remote control toy “features” and capability, you know, to be more convincing.
