In Android Police's latest video, we take you on a comparative journey or, as it is known in the YouTube parlance, a versus. The Galaxy S7 may be a smaller, more expensive phone than the OnePlus 3, that much is true. But if you're in the unlocked device market, the S7's frequent discounting could mean you're actually cross-shopping these devices. Or maybe you're just not sure if you want to get back on a carrier contract or payment plan, and want to see if the no-strings-attached model of the OnePlus 3 could sway you to pay that MSRP up front.

Some folks prefer to run a custom ROM on their phone than stick with the stock software. I'm one of them. But you need a good custom recovery in order to get the job done. That's why it's good news whenever we see more devices gain support from the TeamWin Recovery Project. Read More
The OnePlus 3 is out. We've reviewed it. We've reviewed it on video. By this point you know whether you want the device.
Those of you who have already jumped the gun may have received the 3.2.0 update. Or you may not have, since OnePlus paused the rollout. Now the update is resuming as 3.2.1 with additional improvements. Read More
The OnePlus 3 is a very good phone, but it's not without its issues. Today, OnePlus is starting the rollout of Oxygen OS 3.2.0 to address some of those problems. You may begin mashing the update button now if you want, but it's rolling out in waves. Read More
While you may have read our OnePlus 3 text review, you might be waiting for another take before pulling the trigger on the latest from the sometimes-controversial smartphone manufacturer. Well, another take is what we've got: Facundo Holzmeister takes it away in our video review of the OnePlus 3. Read More
OnePlus managed to integrate a fast charging solution into the OnePlus 3, but it's a non-standard one called Dash Charge. It's a licensed version of Oppo's VOOC, so it requires special code on the device and hardware in the adapter. Some OP fans were bummed that custom ROMs would not be able to support Dash Charge, but that will change next month when OP releases the code. Read More
OnePlus started talking a big game before its first phone even came out. The company's attitude can be irksome, but the OnePlus One turned out to be very good thanks to a combination of high-end internals and highly customizable Cyanogen software. Plenty of people still use this phone, but the OnePlus 2 does not seem to have the same dedicated fan base. It omitted several features like NFC and quick charge technology. Now, the third flagship phone from OnePlus is out, and you don't even need to beg for an invite to buy it. Is this the true successor to the OnePlus One? Let's dig in. Read More
OnePlus likes to talk a big game, but sometimes the company fails to live up to expectations. The OnePlus One offered solid specs at a low price, but it was hurt by scarce invites and the collapse of the Cyanogen partnership. The OnePlus 2 struggled with hardware and software issues throughout its life as well. In fact, that phone just got Marshmallow a week ago. That brings us to the OnePlus 3. Again, OP is making big promises, but at least it's not threatening to kill other phones this time. This is a big departure for OnePlus in terms of design, and for once you don't need an invite to buy it. I've been using the OnePlus 3 for a day, and I have some initial thoughts to offer. Read More
The OnePlus 3 was just announced yesterday with interesting specs and a very decent asking price. If you pre-ordered the phone and were thinking about getting something to protect that precious aluminum body but without adding much weight, thickness, or bulk, then you might be looking for a skin. Fortunately, dbrand didn't waste time releasing its own set of skins for the OnePlus 3.
The customizable skins are available for the back, top and bottom, logo, camera, and front of the phone. dbrand actually did something interesting there by following the OnePlus 3's horizontal black antenna lines on the back to let you choose different skins for the middle, upper, and bottom part.

Custom ROMs are fun. More than that, they offer ways to significantly extend the software life of phones. Manufacturer decides it no longer wants to support hardware? Hopefully someone out there will take up the mantle. But to do that, they need the kernel source code for a given device.
OnePlus has already made those files available for the OnePlus 3. Read More
