OnePlus broke onto the phone market back in 2013 as a plucky Android-powered underdog that amassed a cult following among the mobile community. It prided itself on its debut device’s ‘flagship killer’ persona, which saw it undercutting some of the biggest players at the time – especially in terms of price versus performance.
Since then, the company and its phones have matured greatly, with its latest flagships – among other things – offering up some of the best display experiences and software out there. In recent years, OnePlus’ links to sister brand Oppo have become more prominent, but their phones’ designs, OxygenOS user experience and aggressive price/performance proposition remain a unique blend of selling points.
A clean design, decent performance, a superb display, and brand-leading battery life mean this affordable flagship is a hit.
The OnePlus 12 could cost even more than the OnePlus 11, but the OnePlus 12R might give you almost as much for a lot less.
The mute switch likely won't make it to the iPhone 16, so OnePlus is your best bet for a phone with a physical switch.
It looks as though those outside China will miss out on the OnePlus 12 model with the most RAM and storage.
