dnagpaldg, May 20, 2019 : Before starting, I’d like to thank OnePlus for letting me review the device. It was a lot of fun to talk to my fellow reviewers OnePlus has matured as a company but it still knows the importance of building a community. In fact, aside from the OnePlus Lab and sending their devices to established reviewers, they have a dedicated but little-publicised developer seeding programme in which top developers for the previous models (who, by the way, are often full-time students with restricted budgets) are provided with new devices so that they can develop Kernels and software for the device. This is a big part of why OnePlus devices have such an active modding community. I’m Dhruv. I’m a college student and have been into technology and phones in general since around 2011. I like customizability on phones but also believe in making sensible phone instead of throwing features in. For the Lab, I got the Mirror Gray, 8GB+256GB variant. I've structured the initial review like this: 1. Unboxing 2. Design 3. Display, stereo speakers and the fingerprint scanner 4. Benchmarks and real-life performance 5. Battery and Warp Charge 30 6. Telephony 7. OxygenOS and software-based features 8. Camera 9. How the device integrates into my workflow Let's go!
