What is it?

The latest smartphone from OnePlus.

Previous generations of this model from OnePlus received great reviews, including from me, so I was a tad concerned about rumours of a complete redesign for version 6.

While the digital grapevine appears to have been correct, the good news is everything that impressed me about the OnePlus 5 has been retained but with added improvements.

Good Points?

Unlike the traditional giants of smartphone technology, OnePlus provides sufficient storage and memory capacity for everyday needs.

With options of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, there is more than adequate space to store apps, images and downloaded Netflix videos.

A Snapdragon 845 processor and 8GB RAM provide the necessary thrust to run and switch between demanding applications that look stunning on the 6.2-inch FHD+ display.

Twin rear cameras give increased versatility when capturing special moments with the 16-megapixel lens used primarily for portrait shots and the main 20-megapixel camera providing everything else.

OnePlus has combined the simplicity of the Pixel phone interface with the hardware looks of a Samsung phone to create something special.

The OxygenOS android software promises easy navigation while requiring less interaction which is the holy grail of functionality.

Bad points?

Despite early talk of the device being waterproof, OnePlus has opted for what they say is water resistant materials instead. There is no official IP rating of water resistance.

Best for ...

Those who walk their own path of possibilities and leave the sheep behind.

Avoid if ...

The OnePlus logo won't get you the street cred you crave.

Score: 9/10.
