OnePlus 6: An Affordable iPhone X Rival

OnePlus 6: An Affordable iPhone X Rival
OnePlus 6

The company OnePlus is only about four-and-a-half years old.

In that time it’s managed to grow exponentially and has produced eight phones, all of which offer impressive performance at prices lower than rivals.

Number eight on the list is the OnePlus 6 and it was revealed in London last week and goes on general sale on May 22, 2018.

The OnePlus 6 will be available SIM-free from OnePlus’ own website and will also be offered exclusively on contract through O2 here in the UK.

As with other phones on the market, there are different configurations at different price points.

You can pick up the OnePlus 6 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for £469 or you can jump up to 8GB/128GB at £519 or, finally, opt for 8GB/256GB for £569.

Those prices are more than OnePlus has ever charged before, but they’re still reasonable considering what other firms are asking for their top wares.

I’ve been using the OnePlus 6 for a few days and can really appreciate how much this phone brings to the table for the price tag slapped on the front.

And yet, there are still a few features absent that I feel should have been included.

Producing a great phone at a cheap price isn’t the headline-grabbing trick it once was. Both the Motorola Moto G6 and Honor 10 are cheaper than the OnePlus 6 and offer enough power and style to satisfy the majority of regular users.

But the OnePlus 6 still achieves a remarkably good balance of price-vs-performance that make it more tempting to the average Joe than Samsung’s £869 Galaxy S9+ or Apple’s £999 iPhone X.
