The handset will be made available from Amazon India and company’s own website from May 21 and comes with a starting price of Rs 34,999. However, before you plan to buy the handset, there might be some features you may want to look that will help you decide if you want to buy the device or not.

To buy: Display
OnePlus 6 comes with an improved display unlike what we have seen with the OnePlus 5. The smartphone has a 6.2-inch Optic AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio and a ‘notch’, something found in many flagships these days.
To buy: Cheapest phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
The smartphone, although priced more than OnePlus 5T, is still the cheapest to run Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB and 8GB RAM.
To buy: Slightly improved cameras
The cameras may seem to be the same with a 16MP+20MP count, but feature newer Sony sensors, which aim to make resulting images better. It also the first smartphone to shoot 4K videos at 60fps.
To buy: Glass design
OnePlus is known for its design and build. This time the smartphone brings a glass back design to give users the sense of premium-ness.
Not to buy: Storage options stay the same, no microSD card support
OnePlus 6 still lacks support for microSD card. This means you would either have to settle with a 64GB model or a 128GB model.
Not to buy: Same battery
The battery capacity of the OnePlus 6 also stays the same as that of the OnePlus 5T. The 3300mAh battery also supports Dash Charging tech.
Not to buy: Waterproof smartphones available in lesser price segments
With OnePlus 6, the company is introducing a certain amount of water resistance. The device is splash-proof but not completely water-resistant. Nonetheless, this is a welcome change for many.
Not to buy: Slow-mo video limited to 480fps
OnePlus 6, unfortunately, still limits at 480fps slow-motion video. Some of the other flagships come with 960fps slow motion video shooting ability.
