OnePlus 5 tipped to jump on the dual camera bandwagon

Everyone has a dual camera smartphone these days. Even Apple has one, too! And although the Galaxy S8 doesn't, Samsung is rumored to be eying that change later this year or with the Galaxy S9 at the latest. Given the trend, it isn't surprising to hear that OnePlus is planning to make that change as well. According to the usual people who are ever familiar with inside matters, the OnePlus 5 will be the startup's first dual camera model. And it will be interesting to see how OnePlus will try to sell this feature.

Galaxy S8, iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel, OnePlus 3T speeds tested

With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, you pretty much have the late 2016 to early 2017 smartphone flagships. Which means it's probably time to do a roundup of these smartphone's performance. That is what YouTube channel EverythingApplePro just did by pitting most, though not all, of them against each other in a massive speed test showdown. Who came out first or even second isn't probably going to surprise you. But who came out the last will.

OnePlus 5 is next, OnePlus 4 skipped because unlucky

OnePlus 5 is next, OnePlus 4 skipped because unlucky

Most of the world is probably familiar with 13 being the unlucky number, but for those with Chinese or even East Asian heritage, the unlucky number comes a lot much sooner. Case in point is the OnePlus' next flagship. Based on a certification in China, that will be the OnePlus 5, which will follow last year's OnePlus 3. If you're wondering whatever happened to the OnePlus 4, it didn't get scrapped. It just never existed at all. That's because in China and other East Asian countries, the number 4, not 13, is considered deadly unlucky.

OnePlus 3, 3T users can look forward to a ton of new features soon

OnePlus 3, 3T users can look forward to a ton of new features soon

One of the better things about being a small but successful smartphone maker is that you are able to iterate over smartphone updates more quickly than giant, slow-moving companies (like Samsung). OnePlus has, so far, proven itself to indeed be that agile and the latest OxygenOS beta for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T reinforces that image. In addition to bringing Android 7.1.1, the beta also teases the features that will welcome users when the final release starts rolling out.

OnePlus 3T Midnight Black limited edition now in the US

OnePlus 3T Midnight Black limited edition now in the US

Black is the new black, or at least as far as high-gloss black smartphones are concerned. Ever the contrarian, OnePlus is adding a different twist. It's not glossy mind you, but not its usual matte or old standstone either. It's all black but still also all metal, giving the new OnePlus 3T Midnight Black a very dark visage while still keeping the surface free of fingerprints. But if you have your heart set on this, better be quick on those fingers. There's no telling how long this limited edition will last.

OnePlus 3 and 3T calculator apps have a small Easter egg

So-called ‘Easter eggs’ in software are hidden bits of fun or amusement. Some Easter eggs come in the form of special games or content, while others are little more than a proverbial wink and nod to acknowledge you found it. In some cases, it takes users years to find a well-hidden Easter egg, but in other cases — such as this one — the company itself blows the surprise, telling everyone where to look.

OnePlus 3, 3T get Android Nougat in time for the new year

Just in the nick of time. OnePlus gave itself an end of the year deadline and it has just beat the deadliest of deadlines.

A fitting way to start the new year and end the old one, provided the update actually gets to users quickly.

OnePlus 3T Review : Budget Boss

OnePlus 3T Review : Budget Boss

The OnePlus 3T is a device that's stood on the shoulders of its predecessor to get ahead of the pack of top-tier smartphones on the market today. Instead of releasing an all-new smartphone, OnePlus has opted to chop their update schedule in two. Like Apple releasing an iPhone 6 one year then an iPhone 6s the next, OnePlus seems to be using the "T" - only here twice a year instead of just once. This is the better of the two devices, and a device that can truly match up against the finest smartphones in the market from all opposing brands.
