Flagship smartphones need not be priced over-the-top--this philosophy has brought OnePlus success in the past. The OnePlus 6 is no different. It's packed in the latest and optimal hardware in an elegant design, at a price that usually hits a sweet spot with many. It has a starting price of Rs 34,999 for 6GB RAM with the 64GB storage variant. Here's our experience with the 8GB RAM with 128GB storage variant priced at Rs 39,999.
Camera: OnePlus had embedded some praise-worthy camera set-ups in the earlier versions and expectations run high, and rightly so, from this vertical dual-camera setup. It has a 16-megapixel Sony IMX 519 sensor, f/1.7 aperture, OIS+EIS main, and a 20-megapixel Sony IMX 376K sensor, f/1.7 aperture secondary camera at the rear. The images shot on the OnePlus 6 retain fine details with great colour reproduction. The Portrait mode for bokeh images works smoothly- focusing the subject and blurring the background perfectly. Swiping up from the bottom displays more camera options, which includes Pro Mode, slow motion, time-lapse and panorama. The Pro mode comes to rescue for low-light photography as the images shot in auto-mode at night had some noise. OnePlus plans to add a new artificial algorithm for capturing Portrait selfies using the front camera with a software update. There will be some new bokeh effects including hearts, circles and starts for customising portraits, which are yet to be introduced. The slow-motion videos shot at the 720p resolution at 480 frames per second came out well.
