Flagship phones from most companies are now aiming to set a new standard – loads of RAM, 6GB to be precise, enough to give your laptop a run for its money. 6GB RAM provides great multitasking and gaming experience. Most of these phones are based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 / 821 chipset, along with offering other features like Quick Charge 3.0 – which charges almost 80 percent of the battery in just 30 minutes. If you are also looking for such powerful smartphones, then you are at the right place.
So let’s dive right in.
Although the phablet has been replaced by a better version of its own self, the OnePlus 3 is still a great buy and remains an extremely capable smartphone. It features the Snapdragon 820, which has a quad-core Kryo processor. The company has also offered their own take on fast charging with “Dash Charge”. The 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display is Full HD and not 2K, which should be good for the 3,000mAh battery, and is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The rear camera is rated at 16-megapixel, while for selfies, it has an 8MP shooter. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with OnePlus’ Oxygen OS. The 64GB non-expandable memory however, may seem inadequate to some.
