OnePlus 6 Review

Rating: 9.0.

With its bi-yearly release cycle now well established, mid-2018 sees OnePlus release its latest flagship – the OnePlus 6. Things have changed a fair bit since we reviewed the OnePlus 5T earlier this year, with a larger design being the most obvious difference, though improvements have also been made to the internal components and dual camera system. With a slightly higher price of £519 for the 8GB/128GB model, is this a compelling option for those who want flagship specs without the flagship price?

Despite the price increase over the OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 6 is still considerably cheaper than rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S9+ or Huawei P20 Pro. That is despite the fact it sports Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor, a huge 8GB of RAM and an AMOLED display – all features we would associate with pricier flagships. The model we are reviewing today is the 8GB/128GB model priced at £519, but you can save £50 by going for the 6GB/64GB SKU which potentially represents even better value.
