As you may know, Ambient Mode appears when your device is being charged and gives you access to a wide range of Google Assistant-powered information. To opt …

OnePlus goes 120 Hz

So, you thought the super-slick screen on the OnePlus 7T was smooth ? That’s 90 Hz and slides along like butter on a hotplate, but now OnePlus want to go further. The company have just finished off a 120 Hz Fluid Display and they’ll be introducing it this …

CES – OnePlus makes cameras invisible

Our smartphones are now getting more and more cameras. Wide-angled lenses, macro-lenses and more – all packed in there, all clogging up the design. Then, as we’ve seen during 2019, there’s been innovative ways of hiding the camera up front too. Flip cameras, pop-up cameras and in-display lenses. …

OnePlus 7T Review – Part 3

It’s fair to say that I got a little distracted doing this review. It’s now three parts long (part one is here and part two is here), but I started writing this a month ago now. The truth? It’s become my daily driver. This is a stand-out phone, …

OnePlus 7T Review – Part 2

In our first part of this review the weather was pretty terrible, so I unboxed the OnePlus 7T in the car. During that video I mentioned the camera, so today it’s a deeper look into this. It’s quite a clever setup actually. The main camera that you’ll be …

OnePlus 7T Review – Part 1

I liked this particular phone the minute I saw it at the launch. Sure, there’s a “Pro” model, but I was more impressed with the design of this one. I’m not saying that the other one is bad, because it isn’t – this one was just my preference. …

OnePlus announce a Phone Piano

Back in February 2012 we spotted this flying horse in Barcelona. It was created by Huawei, and they’d made the thing using Ascend smartphones. Now, a few years later, OnePlus have emulated that trick, but with a piano. They’ll be showing off a piano made entirely of OnePlus …

OnePlus 7T Pro and the 7T Pro McLaren – Up close and personal

Available for £699 in a few days time (Amazon, John Lewis and the OnePlus website), this is the OnePlus 7T Pro. It sits quite neatly next to it’s more expensive £799 brother – the OnePlus 7T Pro Mclaren Edition. The latter won’t be available until November 5th. The …

The OnePlus 7T – Up close and personal

So, we have a bit of a problem here. We were in London for the rather large OnePlus 7T Series yesterday. It was, without doubt, the biggest OnePlus launch we’ve ever been to. Again, and I’ll be honest, the problems Huawei are currently experiencing mean that the competition …

OnePlus 7T Pro Series launch – LIVE

As we mentioned a bit earlier, we’re in London for the launch of the new OnePlus 7T Series launch. A lot of this has already leaked, with details of all that here, but there’ll hopefully be a few surprises in store for us too. The live feed is …

OnePlus – WarpChargeSOS on the streets of London

Want your battery charging? Let’s face it, there’s far too many people who rely on a charger or portable power pack being close to hand. The people at OnePlus are seeking to change all that, with their WarpChargeSOS fire truck taking to the streets of London to top …

On October 10th we’ll be seeing the launch of the OnePlus 7T. It’s a handset we’ve already heard about and the company themselves actually leaked pictures of it last month too. Now, we’ll be at the event but, if you want to take a look at the phone …

The OnePlus 7 Pro. Go get yourself one of these.

OK, it’s quickly turning into OnePlus day here at Coolsmartphone. Today we’re going to take another deep-dive into the OnePlus 7 Pro. It’s a phone which has taken up residence at the Coolsmartphone office and yes – we actually got told off by the OnePlus PR people for …

OnePlus leak pictures of their own handset

OK, an update then. On Monday we received an update on the upcoming OnePlus 7T. You can buy tickets to watch the launch here in the UK on October 10th or watch it one their site, however it’ll be revealed much earlier than that elsewhere. For example, in …

OnePlus 7T Series – Incoming!

Given the issues that Huawei and Honor are facing, it’s fair to say that the competitors are smelling an opportunity. One in particular is OnePlus, who’s today announced the launch event details for its OnePlus 7T Series. Things kick off at 4pm BST on October 10th, with the …

OnePlus 7 now available to order

Don’t get confused, this isn’t the 7 Pro (that’s the one on the right), so you won’t be getting the flip camera or Warp Charge. The screen is a bit lower resolution and the battery is slightly lower capacity, but it’s £499 for the 6GB model. That’s definitely …

OnePlus hire Iron Man

OK, story time. Get comfortable.. Once there was a company called HTC. They started off making phones and strange things called “PDA’s”, but nobody knew who they were because the networks would put their logos on the devices instead. Then, some years later, HTC got big. Really big. …

The OnePlus 7 – All you need to know
