OnePlus 6 review: Slick looks and blazing speed make this the best OnePlus

Phones
This is the new OnePlus 6. It has a Snapdragon 845 processor, 64 gigabytes of RAM, dual rear cameras, and a rear fingerprint reader. Wait, Kim, that's the wrong phone, that's the Galaxy S9 Plus. Hold on, let me just go slowly, and no one will notice me swapping them out, and putting the OnePlus 6, hint of the shot there, but You cut to this shot. Hello! Looks like you caught me guys, but you got to admit that there is a bit of resemblance between the Galaxy S9 Plus and the One Plus Six and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The Galaxy S9 has a glass back with two rear cameras and the One Plus Six does as well. The center stack camera and the fingerprint reader are underneath it. I kind of like the new One plus six's looks. It's like a little tuxedo make-over. Glossy and refined on the back. With a bow tie notch on the front. What the notch does is it makes room for the ear piece, the centers, and the front facing camera. But If you don't like the Notch, you can go into the settings and minimize it. And what it does is put's a black bar across the top, but it still shows the date and time. It has a 6.3 display and looks fantastic and bright. Videos and scrolling through Instagram is a delight. The colors are vibrant without being too over saturated. The one plus six has iPhone ten like gestures, which I'm not a big fan of. It took a few frustrating days to get a hang of it, but after that they became second nature. The one plus six like many other phones these days has a dual rear camera The main camera has a bigger sensor than last year's 5T. In fact, you get 19% more light and maybe even a better background blur. According to OnePlus, the second camera is exclusively for portrait mode photos. Which by the way, are some of the best portrait mode photos on any phone. And here's the reason, it's all about the blur. The way it creates the bouquet, that background blur, is gorgeous. And it looks like a DSLR with a fast lens. But it also keeps the details in the face nice and sharp. It works really good on objects like food, avocado toast. And it works great on cats. Probably dogs too, but I didn't get to take any pictures of dogs. The OnePlus 6 has my favorite camera interface ever. It's simple but you can get to almost everything within one or two taps. So right up front we have video, photo, and portrait. But if I want more modes, I just slide the drawer up, and now I have access to Things like slow motion and pro mode, time-lapse, and panorama. One of my favorite things is the [UNKNOWN] ratio is right there. So if I tap on 4x3 and go from that to 19x9, which goes full screen. Side note, it is cropping in so you do lose a little bit of image quality. But it just looks magnificent on this OLED panel. If I go into video mode here I can go into 4k 60 frames per second. I could also go into 1080 60 frames per second, or just regular 1080 or 720. [MUSIC] The image quality of videos has a nice punchy contrast which looks film like and dramatic. It also has electric image stabilization for video which looks pretty good. And if regular slow mo isn't enough for you, the OnePlus 6 just like the Galaxy S9 Plus has a super slow mo mode. How much use you'll get out of it, I don't know [MUSIC]. Because your accents have to be very fast and very well lit for them to look good. Does the one plus six look a lot like the Galaxy S9 Plus, have phone ten like gestures and symbol interface like the pixel too? Absolutely and I welcome that. One plus has managed to take some of the best features from Android. And iOS and package them in a beautiful, gorgeous, glass body for a prize that is hundreds of dollars less than other flagship phones. And I absolutely like that.
