Some time ago we moved to Instagram, in a profile where we uploaded videos, photographs and different tips for all of you. Weekly, we usually do a live interview to answer your questions and answers, and yesterday it was the turn of OnePlus 6.
We have already thoroughly analyzed this phone and the truth is that we liked it a lot. Gathering the questions that users asked us yesterday, we have a few answers for you, so we are going to finish with the curiosities that were raised yesterday, to help also all those who read this.
23 questions about the OnePlus 6
What specifications do you have?
Mainly, it highlights its Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal and the double camera of 16 + 20 megapixels. There is a version of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal for the most pro. The screen is Optic AMOLED of 6.28 inches with FHD + resolution and the 3300mAh battery with Dash Charge.
Is it better than the Samsung Galaxy S9?
No, nor is it required of you. They are two different ranges, and aspects such as audio, camera or screen will always shine more in a device that has a retail price close to 1,000 euros.
The worst of OnePlus 6
Camera, audio and latency. It is a spectacular device as a whole, we have to take into account that it costs 500 euros, and that somewhere we have to cut back. Weaknesses are not so bad but as points to improve. The device is complete, and although we can demand more, it still has a great value for money.
How many megapixels and aperture do your cameras have?
The main sensor is a Sony IMX519 of 16 megapixels with OIS, f / 1.7 and 1.22μm, the secondary a Sony IMX376K of 20 megapixels with opening f / 1.7 and pixel size of 1.0μm. The front camera is also a Sony IMX371 16-megapixel sensor, with f / 2.0 aperture and 1.0μm pixel size
What autonomy do you have?
About 6h of average screen. If you give a lot of cane it will not go down to 5 and if you treat it with love you can reach 7. An outstanding autonomy taking into account the amperage that the device has.
Do you think the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 can beat the OnePlus 6?
Yes. The Mi Mix 3 is destined to be a higher range than those currently available. Not everything is software, since MIUI has improved a lot, and it would be quite logical that the Mi Mix 3 is a couple of steps above the OnePlus 6.
Is it compatible with Apple AirPods?
Yes it is.
How about the notch? Does it block much?
It does not bother at all. It is the smallest of Android today, we can make it hide forever, or schedule it to close in X apps. By default, it is hidden only in YouTube, Chrome, Instagram… You end up forgetting that it exists and does not bother, something that we can not say in the case of iPhone X.
Does it weigh a lot?
No, 177 grams. Considering that the iPhone 8 Plus is smaller and weighs 202 grams, we can not say that it is a heavy terminal. It is pleasant to the hand and manageable, in spite of its size.
Which camera is better, the OnePlus 6 or the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S?
The one of the Mi Mix 2S, by – to our liking – too much difference. Artificial intelligence makes the photos of the Xiaomi are bright, day, night, in portrait mode… The OnePlus 6 has a camera a step below what we expected, although it does not stop being a good example in this aspect.
What memory configuration do you have?
6/64 GB, 8/128 GB, 8/256 GB. GB for everyone!
Will the OnePluss 6 camera improve with future updates?
Yes, he will do it. OnePlus updates with improvements in the camera throughout the life of updates their phones , so we will find improvements. We do not know how long it will take – and if it will arrive – at the level of, for example, a Mi Mix 2S, but I hope it does.
Do you have a fault on the screen like the OnePlus 5?
No, the screen is excellent and presents no problem beyond the viewing angles of the AMOLED screens. It’s a pretty good panel, to which we would only ask for more resolution **.
Do you have gesture navigation? Are they like the iPhone X?
They are virtually identical to those of the iPhone X, saving that the gesture of going back is a swipe up on either side. The gestures are one of the best points of this device, and it works amazingly.
What screen relation does it have?
19: 9, narrow strait.
Do you have NFC?
Yes, you can pay with it anywhere.
Does it come with Android One?
No, it comes with OxygenOS. A modification of AOSP that adds a lot of customization.
Is it water resistant? What certification do you have?
It is not resistant to water under certification, although some Internet tests claim that it holds up pretty well a dip. We do not recommend wetting it, but if you drop a beer on it this summer, it will surely survive.
How about the maximum brightness outdoors?
Excellent, high-end shine in every rule. You can take it out in the sun and the screen will still look bright. It is another of the strongest points of this phone, large panel.
What is the lowest price for which you can buy? Where?
Currently, if you want it with a guarantee and shipping from US – something we recommend – you have it in Amazon at a lower price than the official one. They send it in 1 or 2 days, and you have a guarantee in Spain, a joy. If you want to buy it in China, you have it at $ 699, with a worse guarantee, without a European charger and with a considerably slower shipment.
What are your strengths?
Speed, battery, screen and cleaning the ROM. The price is something that we should not forget, since they ask us for 500 euros for a terminal with a superlative performance, something that we must not lose sight of.
- Is it a fragile phone?
Yes, like everyone. No crystal phone is free to be fragile. A transparent cover or a skin of Dbrand is the best option in this case.
