Equipped with top-tier specs and an affordable price tag, the OnePlus 3 is one of our favorite handsets of 2016. Originally launched in silver, the phone is now available in "soft gold."

Aside from the color, the device is exactly the same as before. It costs $400 or £309 unlocked (which converts to about AU$590).

If you plan on buying the OnePlus 3, know that it might not be available right away because of its popularity. In fact, OnePlus will soon halt sales temporarily in 23 European countries due to high demand.
