OnePlus released the Nord in Europe some time ago with the promise that it would eventually arrive on our US shores. They later released the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 in Europe with promises to eventually bring them to the US. I’ve been testing the European OnePlus Nord N10 5G, and I am quite impressed. It is an excellent phone in its own right, and it represents OnePlus returning to its roots and the approach that first put it on our radar.
I’ve been testing the OnePlus 8T for well over a month, and although it showed up at a time when I had four other different phones on my desk to review, it soon won me over and became my daily driver. Yes, there are a few caveats, but for someone like me who wants a brilliant, large display with a high refresh rate, fantastic battery life, an even better than expected camera, and almost all of the bells and whistles, it is a great choice.
This Holiday Season will be unlike any we have previously experienced, and gift-giving will be too. After all, people feel the financial pinch and, many of us are spending more time in our homes than ever. Here are some of the items that might make meaningful and practical gifts this year. You might see something for you, too!
OnePlus and T-Mobile know a few things. they know how to make excellent smartphones, they know how to blanket the country in 5G, and they know everyone is crawling the walls because there’s nowhere to go in the middle of a pandemic. They can’t totally fix that third issue, but they’re trying with their new OnePlus Go Farther scavenger hunt!
OnePlus continues to live up to its mantra of “Never Settle,” which has never been more evident than its latest flagship, the OnePlus 8T. Boasting a 120Hz screen refresh rate, Warp Charge 65, quad-cameras, Android 11, and the top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G Mobile Platform, this mobile powerhouse is a stunner.
If you’ve been paying attention to the build-up surrounding the OnePlus Nord, you know that it is the brand’s latest accessibly-priced smartphone. The Nord is not going to be for sale in the US, but if you can get your hands on one, it doesn’t sound like you’ll be disappointed. The OnePlus Nord was formally introduced to the world this morning during an AR launch event.
I’ve been testing the OnePlus 8 series for a bit over a month, and I have good news: the phones are very well made, and the cameras are better than expected. Long story short, starting at $699 for the OnePlus 8 and starting at $899 for the OnePlus 8 Pro, both of these phones have a lot going for them. Let’s dig in.
I’ve been a fan of Pitaka’s insanely thin yet protective Aramid cases since I first received one to try on my iPhone 7 Plus. I used them on every iPhone I owned until I switched to the Pixel 3 XL, when I was disappointed to learn that Pitaka wouldn’t have a case for my phone. When I moved to the 4 XL, there still wasn’t a case available, but that’s no longer true.
June 21st is Father’s Day. Let that sink in for a moment; we are already halfway through 2020. While it may seem like this has been the longest year ever, there are still six more months just waiting to spring their surprises on us — which is all the more reason to take a minute, slow down, and celebrate the fathers in our lives.
In a stark reminder that we are in the middle of a global pandemic with travel bans and stay-at-home orders in full effect, the highly anticipated OnePlus 8 flagship series was finally formally announced this morning via a YouTube live stream.
Today, the OnePlus 7T goes on sale in the US, and I can safely say that if you’re in the market for a new phone, it should be a front-running contender. Loaded with flagship features, at $599 the 7T is almost a no-brainer. Let’s take a look at why I think this is the best phone for your money.
I covered the OnePlus 7 Pro announcement with excitement. This flagship smartphone features a gorgeous 6.67″ AMOLED display; it has a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, and you can get yours with 6, 8, or 12GB RAM and 128 or 256GB user memory.
We’ve all seen the rumors, and now the OnePlus 7 Pro is a fact! OnePlus has just a released their flagship phone, boasting a gorgeous 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It also comes equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and up to 12 GB of RAM. Perhaps most exciting? No notch and no screen cutouts!*
As the end of 2018 was beginning to coming into view, OnePlus made it clear that the year was still had some life left. They released the OnePlus 6T, their mid-year iterative update that takes the best of their most recent model and further refines it. The phone won immediate acclaim, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts.
I’ve been impressed by OnePlus since Judie and I each bought the original offering. Since then, they have continued to deliver ever-more-powerful phones. I’m currently reviewing the OnePlus 6T. The phone is so impressive that my review has taken on a life of its own. In this short review, however, I want to look at the OnePlus Type-C Bullets Earphones.
Today, OnePlus announced their brand new OnePlus 6T, and to kick off their new flagship phone, OnePlus is announcing that T-Mobile is their first US wireless partner to carry a OnePlus device in their stores. You’ll finally be able to fondle one in person before buying!
People like to dress up in white for the New Year, and it seems that so does OnePlus. To that effect, they have just announced a Limited Edition Sandstone White model. The device combines the signature OnePlus Sandstone texture with a bright white hue reminiscent of the OnePlus One Silk White. The design is complemented by a red alert-slider.
It has only been a couple of months since OnePlus released the OnePlus 5, and here they are with the newer, larger 5T. The 5T ups the ante by packing in a large 6” phablet size display with thinner bezels.
I loved the original OnePlus phone and was even more taken with the OnePlus 3. While I haven’t had a chance to check out the new OnePlus 5, I have little doubt it is a winner. And now, as a limited edition offering, the OnePlus 5 comes in Soft Gold; retailing for $479 it looks amazing!
Just about twice a year I leave my iPhone behind and flirt with Android phones for a period of time. Most of the time I’m happy to get back to my iPhone. Most recently, however, the transition back to iOS was tough. I was using the OnePlus 3 and absolutely loved it. Raina, however, wanted me back on iMessage.
After a week in Israel, I met Raina and we set out on a road trip to Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and now Bryce and Zion National Parks. For cameras, Raina brought her iPhone 6 while I brought my iPhone 6S and the OnePlus 3 I am currently reviewing. Do we regret not bringing dedicated cameras? Not. At. All.
