OnePlus 3 equals four?


OnePlus 31. The screen

AnandTech had a bad review on the screen’s color gamut.  Which they subsequently reversed after OnePlus released a new firmware.

But for me, the fact that it’s a PenTile AMOLED display is a huge negative for me. Especially at this screen size (5.5″).

2 The camera

Some people think that it has bad low light performance. But AnandTech’s review gives it a glowing tick. They reckon it’s even better than the iPhone 6s!

For me low light performance is expected, so that’s another strike against the OnePlus.

3. The memory management

I had bad experiences with memory management with the HTC One X.

I would write a SMS, take a note in a text editor or in Evernote, or type an address in Google Chrome, swap to some other app for some reason or other.

When I returned, whatever I had typed in would have disappeared because of aggressive memory management. 😦

I haven’t been able to ascertain whether the memory management suspends the apps or closes them (and hence losing interim data entry) but I’m not going to take that risk.

4. No go

Adding up these 3 negative points, I’m leaning towards taking the chance on OnePlus 3 3 and buying it.
