Performance of Oneplus 3

Well, specifications may have got it all cleared till now but moving on to the detailed analysis of its performance this handset is the best you can get between a range of 25000 to 30000 INR. Despite 6GB RAM, Oneplus 3 does not let the smartphone heat up on executing heavy applications, not even the camera could. The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor drives it as fast as you want without any hanging problem. The battery too lasts longer but cannot compete with those heavy batteries in case of its rival phones like Xiaomi Mi 5 etc. Besides, Multi-tasking can easily go through. In the case of the connectivity speed/performance , this phone has 4G/ LTE technology enabled thereby ensuring that you are taken to a higher speed network without delaying your notifications/texts/work even for a second.
