While you were refreshing Engadget to see all the new stuff Apple, Microsoft and Sony announced this week, you may have missed the fact that OnePlus came out with a new phone. The OnePlus 3 -- yes, that would be its third-generation flagship -- comes in at a reasonable $399 and as usual, boasts some impressive specs for the price. In addition to offering top-notch internals, it brings a more premium-feeling aluminum design as well as dual SIM support.

Pros

  • First-rate performance
  • Excellent build quality
  • Mostly stock Android, plus some neat features
  • Dual SIM support
  • It's $399!

Cons

  • Ships with a few minor bugs
  • Limited memory options
  • Dash charger doesn't work with all cables
That said, we wish it came with more storage options (just one 64GB version) and the supposedly fast-charging charger isn't always that fast. If money is no object, we still prefer the Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 -- at least in absolute terms. But if you want a flagship-caliber phone but don't have flagship money to spend, this is your best bet.
