OnePlus 6 review: The best notch Android has to offer so far

...

OnePlus may have to come up with a new name for Dash Charge, thanks to Amazon

One staple of OnePlus phones over the years has been 'Dash Charge,' the company's proprietary fast charging technology. The OnePlus 3 was first to include it, allowing the phone to charge two-thirds of the battery in roughly 30 minutes. If you watched the OnePlus 6 announcement live stream, you may have noticed that Dash Charge wasn't mentioned once - and there's a reason for that.

The OnePlus 6 is the best Android phone with a notched screen yet

OnePlus is a company that, historically, hasn’t been known for adventurous smartphone designs. And while much of the OnePlus 6 merely iterates on the same rather staid, minimal hardware language, there is one part that stands out: this is the first Android phone with a screen notch I haven’t felt repulsed by.

Now, I don’t mind screen notches, in theory. The iPhone X manages to incorporate one well, particularly owing to the fact that the rest of the screen bezel around the phone is equally thin. Which is to say, there isn’t a chin.

The OnePlus 6 does have a chin - and there are reasons for that - but I think it incorporates that element far better than, for example, Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone.

OnePlus 6 emerges from JerryRigEverything's hands mostly unscathed

The OnePlus 6 was finally unveiled about 12 hours ago after quite a bit of shameless self-leaking, and it seems like a pretty solid phone. But how will its glass sandwich design hold up in daily use? JerryRigEverything got his hands on one to find out, and the phone did relatively well.

The OnePlus 6's alert slider key finally works like it should again

OnePlus is one of the very few Android phonemakers incorporating a physical volume mode toggle on its devices. Well, at least it sort of was - as of the OnePlus 3, the vibrate mode was replaced with “Do Not Disturb” (DND) on the three-position switch, and changes to DND in later versions of Android really messed with that. Eventually, it seemed most people just wanted the switch to go back to its basic behavior of loud, vibrate, and silent (everything except alarms).

So, after many, many, many complaints about this issue, OnePlus has decided to revert back to the switch’s original behavior, as it was on the OnePlus Two.

OnePlus 6 hands-on: A somewhat less obnoxious notch

After numerous teases, leaks, and deleted Twitter polls, the OnePlus 6 is official. OnePlus has made a number of significant changes that its fans might not love, but the OnePlus 6 is very 2018. This device sports a screen notch, which is all the rage among smartphone OEMs. There's also an all-glass chassis, which OnePlus has resisted for years. This is still a OnePlus phone, so it comes with killer specs and a pretty reasonable price tag.

Google Lens is coming to camera apps from Google, Motorola, LG, Sony, and more

Google is going big on machine learning at this year's I/O—much of the keynote was about Assistant and Lens, both of which leverage neural networks to make magic happen on your phone. Now, Lens will be faster to use because it'll be right there in your camera app. This is coming to Google's phones, of course, but that's not all. Devices from Sony, Motorola, and others will also have Lens in the camera.
