One Plus 3 Quick Review
It is dual SIM, Dual SIM is the way to go. It features dual Nano Sim cards. Both SIM cards work on standby so you will be on by both operators or SIM cards.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is the CPU of the One Plus 3 and I kind of love it. Performed is upped. The processor is a quad core Kyro TM two of the core clocking at 2.2GHz and the others at 1.6FGHz. Adreno 530 does the graphics bit. It handles it with care.

With 6GB RAM I think performance and efficiency is boosted. 6GB iis bigger and better. The best phone have used was a 3GB RAM phone and I loved it. 6GB to me is revolutionary and more improved. 

One Plus 3 lacks a MicroSD card slot. Not don’t worry the internal storage of the One Plus 3 is not a 16GB memory, it is a 64GB ROM. Storage wise you are loaded and taken care of. 

The camera system of the One Plus 3 is dual. Features dual cameras the front shooter and rear snapper. The rear one is a 16MP primary camera with auto focus and flashlight. 

The front camera perfect for selfies and video calling is the 8.0MP secondary  camera. You love that don’t you? I hope to get a hands on the One Plus 3 and compare it with Tecno Camon C9, not all specs but the cameras;  yes cameras that’s what Camon C9 would be matching here.
