OnePlus 6 long-term review

GSMArena team, 18 Sept 2018.

Introduction

The OnePlus 6: still a top notch deal? If so, is that despite or maybe even thanks to its top notch? On the surface, it definitely seems like this is a worthy contender in the flagship realm even today, with its glass back, minimal bezels, and top of the line internals for 2018.

The OnePlus One was the 'flagship killer' four years ago, with its high-end specs and crazy price. In the meantime, OnePlus' journey has altered its products somewhat, but since 2014 the company has consistently put out some of the most interesting handsets of each year. The OnePlus 6 represents the culmination of its work in making devices that are more affordable than their competitors while sacrificing less and less to achieve that with every year that goes by.

Join us over the next pages of this long-term review in order to find out whether that makes the OnePlus 6 a true spiritual successor to the original OnePlus One. We'll tell you what it was like to live with the OnePlus 6 day in and day out for an extended period of time, during which we've used it as our one and only smartphone. Is it worth the asking price? Do its performance and smoothness match those of other flagships? Let's find out.
