OnePlus 3

See at OnePlus

The OnePlus 3 is the latest and greatest phone to come from OnePlus, and by far the best flagship they've released thus far. Featuring all the hardware specs and features you'd expect from a top-tier smartphone — a great screen, solid camera, speedy software, and long battery life — it's one of the best Android phones of 2016.

And best of all is the price. At only $399, it costs significantly less than any other major 2016 flagship. While there are more affordable OnePlus phones available, none of them come close to matching the high quality experience you get from the OnePlus 3.

Bottom line: After years of fine-tuning, OnePlus has finally introduced a phone that's worthy of competing in the competitive high-end smartphone market. That phone is the OnePlus 3.

One more thing: The OnePlus 3 comes in a single 64GB version, which is plenty of storage space for even the most avid of media collectors. And it's dual-SIM too!

Why the OnePlus 3 is the best

Premium package at a mid-range price!

OnePlus has been trying to make major waves into the mainstream phone market, and they really hit their stride in a big way with the OnePlus 3. After previously dabbling with different materials, the OnePlus 3 gets a premium full aluminum build. Paired with the beautiful 5.5-inch, 1080p display protected by Gorilla Glass 4, it's a stylish design with no compromises.

Powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB of RAM, there's plenty of power for running a mostly pure Android experience from OnePlus' Oxygen OS. There a solid 16 megapixel camera on the back and an 8MP front-facing camera and in terms of storage, the OnePlus 3 comes with 64GB, but sadly no external SD slot. Other features such as a fingerprint scanner, NFC for Android Pay and two sim card slots are

On top of all that, there's a capable 3000mAh battery which offers fantastic battery life during an average day of usage. When it's time to top up, use the included Dash Charge wall plug to get your phone back up to 60% in just 30 minutes.

Here's what Android Central's Andrew Martonik had to say on it in his official review:

No longer are we looking at a phone that's "good for the money" or downplaying shortcomings in light of the phone as a whole — the OnePlus 3 is aiming to just be a top-end phone, before you discuss the price or the company behind it.

OnePlus 2

See at OnePlus

The OnePlus 2 was a somewhat interesting release in 2015. Following their "Never Settle" motto, OnePlus went with the year's top chip: a Snapdragon 810 processor with 4GB of RAM for the 64GB model of the OnePlus 2. There is a handy notification slider opposite the power and volume buttons, allowing you to discretely silence your phone without taking it out of your pocket. However, OnePlus also left out features such as expandable memory, NFC support, and included a removable backplate but no removable battery. Depending on your usage habits, those might be deal breakers.

Even though it's a year old, it's a capable device that could be a decent option for folks looking for a mid-range phone with good specs. Currently running on Marshmallow, it should get an upgrade to Nougat along with the OnePlus 3 in 2017. The build quality here is quite nice as well — after the OnePlus One's all-plastic body, the company transitioned to an aluminum-magnesium alloy frame with a swappable back cover. It's a unique look that won't be to everyone's tastes, but the included sandstone cover is quite comfortable to hold.

Bottom line: If affordability is your top priority and you don't care about lack of external storage or NFC, at $299 it will still serve the average user well.

One more thing: The OnePlus 2 features haptic feedback and a very quick fingerprint scanner.

OnePlus X

See at OnePlus

OnePlus put style first with the OnePlus X. With an engraved aluminum frame and black Onyx glass on the back, the compact OnePlus X has a polished look and feel to it that stands out among all other OnePlus phones. It's got a brilliant 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display and performs well running the streamlined Oxygen OS.

This is a true budget phone, so it has a weaker camera than the OnePlus 2 and 3, but it does include the flexibility of either using two sim cards, or one sim card and a microSD — up to 128GB supported. Starting at only $199, it's the most inexpensive of the three.

Bottom line: If you're looking for an affordable, stylish phone in a compact size, the OnePlus X is a decent option.

One more thing:: The OnePlus X almost certainly won't get Android 7.0 Nougat due to the use of an older Snapdragon 801 processor.
