OnePlus 6 Performance Test: Packs a Mean Punch

One thing that OnePlus has always gotten right with its smartphones is performance. I have been using OnePlus devices since the OnePlus 3 and I have never suffered any lag or stutter, even after using the devices for over more than a year. In fact, my original OnePlus 3 is still going strong even after being my daily driver for the last two years. So, it came as a no surprise when I tested the OnePlus 6 and it handled everything that I threw at it with quite an ease. In a time where the prices of flagship devices are touching $1000 mark, OnePlus has managed to provide impeccable performance at its killer price. In this article, we are going to take a look at OnePlus’ latest device, the OnePlus 6, and find out if and how it manages to push the bar even further as we put it through our performance test:

Note: The OnePlus 6 model we tested has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

OnePlus 6: The Specs

The OnePlus 6 packs the top of the line hardware which provides it with enough capabilities to scream through any task that you want it to handle. For those who are interested in numbers, the OnePlus 6 brings the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor which is an octa-core processor with 4 high-performance cores clocked at 2.8 GHz and 4 energy efficient cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. OnePlus 6 pairs this chipset with Adreno 630 GPU, 6 GB of super-fast LPDDR4X RAM, and 64 GB of UFS 2.1 2-Lane storage which brings lightning fast file transfer speeds.

OnePlus 6 Performance Test: Oxygen OS

While most people think that the raw specs is the only thing that makes OnePlus 6 fast, that’s not entirely true. To gain every milli-second of the speed possible, OnePlus has optimized its Oxygen OS to render only the things that are on the screen and nothing more. It ensures that the processor is utilized in an efficient manner giving you a fast and speedy user interface. Not only that, the Oxygen OS itself is so light that it just takes seconds to load. The OnePlus motto for Oxygen OS, “Do more with less“, certainly seems to be paying off when it comes to the real world performance of the smartphone.

Honestly, as you can infer from the title of this post, the OnePlus 6 is a beast. The performance is so good that the phone just fades into the background and feels more like a portal for getting things done.

I tried really hard to make the OnePlus 6 miss one frame or show some lag, even for a second, but I failed. The OnePlus 6 gives one of the smoothest smartphone performance I have ever experienced.

    128 GB of ROM… Read Only Memory,????.

    The 128GB of internal storage can be use to store apps and user files so it is not ROM.
