OnePlus 3 Smartphone First Impressions

Daniel Schmidt (translated by Martina Osztovits), 06/19/2016

Power-Player. All good things come in threes. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer might have thought just this and launches the third generation of the flagship killer: the OnePlus 3.

For the original German preview, see here.

Three follows two and thus, the name of the new flagship killer is not surprising. The OnePlus 3 is the successor of the OnePlus 2. The look remained almost unchanged. The OnePlus dismisses the sanded rear side and uses a aluminium unibody case now. Inside, the current Snapdragon 820 makes for fast performance. 6 GB of RAM are an enormous capacity and the future will show if this is really necessary. The internal storage device features 64 GB and cannot be expanded. In return, there is a dual SIM slot. A 16 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera are suitable for this class; at least on paper.

The display brings similar specs as its predecessor: a diagonal of 5.5 inch and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. As the OnePlus 3 also is designed for use of VR content, we would have wished for an QHD panel at least. OnePlus does no longer use the IPS technology, but incorporates an AMOLED screen. In addition, the OnePlus 3 is finally also available with NFC.

OnePlus offers a powerful product for just under 399 Euros. Definitely, the price is an incentive to buy. Learn how the device compares to the high-end competitors in our in-depth review in a few days.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 5 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (25.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 5 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 6 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (40.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 243.9 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 243.9 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 243.9 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9705 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.
