OnePlus discounted the OnePlus 6 by $100 for Black Friday. However, the price is still valid now for Cyber Week. So if you did not grab one on Black Friday, well you can still grab one for $100 off, bringing the price down to just $429. That is a really good price for the OnePlus 6, which is still boasting the latest specs, even though the OnePlus 6T is now available. If you don’t mind the larger notch, smaller battery and fingerprint reader on the back, then the OnePlus 6 is definitely worth picking up, especially at $120 below the OnePlus 6T’s current pricing. For $429, you are getting the 6GB/64GB model.
The OnePlus 6 is a pretty popular phone for a number of reasons. Firstly because OnePlus does offer the highest specs available, along with some very lightweight software. Some might even say that OnePlus has the best version of Android available right now. The OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage available. There is no micro SD card slot available, but with that much storage, you likely won’t need it anyways. There are two cameras on the back: 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel as well. Which is going to offer some pretty slick looking pictures. In fact, OnePlus just debuted NightScape on the OnePlus 6, a feature that came with the OnePlus 6T that allows you to get even better images at night. Now the OnePlus 6 does have a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. Which is still a good thing at this point, seeing as there have been complaints about the speed and reliability of the in-display sensor on the OnePlus 6T. So at least the one on the OnePlus 6 will work more often. There’s also a smaller 3300mAh capacity battery in the OnePlus 6 which is going to be great for keeping you going all day, and if not, there is always Dash Charge that will charge the phone up very quickly – almost unbelievable how quick it is.
OnePlus doesn’t typically discount its smartphones all that often, so grabbing it at just $429 is a pretty good deal. You will sometimes see third-party resellers selling it at a discount, but you gotta be careful there, as they might be the Chinese version (and won’t work in the US) or might come without a warranty. But this one is coming from OnePlus’ website directly. So that means you are getting the North American version, which is definitely important here. The OnePlus 6 is a great smartphone to pick up for those that are looking to get their hands on a new smartphone that doesn’t cost a lot but is definitely speedy. It’ll also make a great gift this year for those that are looking for something for the tech geeks on their list. The OnePlus 6 is definitely for them. OnePlus does offer free shipping on its website, and it will arrive in time for Christmas, of course, that is still nearly a month away, so that’s not too surprising.
