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.
The OnePlus One was one of the best-priced Android phones to come out in the last few years; made in small batches which created demand from those without invitations to purchase, it combined many of the features that people liked from different phones to create one single shockingly inexpensive, well-built and well-featured device. Dan and I both bought one.
Judie and I were both lucky enough to get invitations to purchase a OnePlus One smartphone (thanks Julie G.!). If you haven’t heard about this device, it is a premium quality, premium speed phablet with rock-bottom, unlocked smartphone price. We’ll be reviewing the phones soon, but I wanted to do a quick review of the $14.99 OnePlus One Flip Cover.
I sure wish I had had the SpareOnePLUS after SuperStorm Sandy took out most of the power in my area last fall. Sure, Elana and I had charged up all of the eternal batteries we had on hand and immediately went into “smartphone power conservation mode”, but the SpareOnePLUS Emergency Mobile Phone would have made our smartphone-worries disappear. Judie got…
