Question: How is the design and build quality?

Answer: The OnePlus 3 comes with a full aluminium design this year. While the OnePlus One came with a plastic shell, OnePlus 2 came with a metal strip around the sides. This year, the company has gone all-metal with the OnePlus 3. A minimalist design approach and a excellent overall design sense has resulted in a stunning looking phone. The build quality is fantastic as well, which should clear the doubts in many previous OnePlus users’ minds. The only drawback could be that it is slippery, but that is expected from metal phones.

The OnePlus 3 is an very good value for money device. While the OnePlus One created a big splash at its launch, the OnePlus 2 was not really as much of a success. The company seems to have learned really quick from its experience and that reflects in the OnePlus 3. It ticks almost every box that we can imagine of, surpasses our expectations in many areas and leaves very little to be desired. At Rs. 27,999, the OnePlus 3 is a steal.
