The OnePlus 6 is here

The OnePlus 6 has finally landed in the hands of many consumers this week.  This will be a brief look at the phone and a few of the features that stand out.  There are many sites showing the unboxing, so we will skip that part, since it is the same.

I’m sure you already know the specifications of this hot phone, if you are searching for it.  But, just in case you heard the name and nothing else, take a gander over here for the full run-down.

While many users might compare the OnePlus 6 to the Samsung Galaxy S9+ because they are similar in size, I will compare it to the smaller, less expensive Samsung Galaxy S9 model.  This will put them closer into the price range of each other; The OnePlus 6 starting at $529 and the Samsung Galaxy S9 starting at $720

The OnePlus 6 will work with T-Mobile in the US just fine with support for bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 66, and 71.  For AT&T it has support for bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 17, 29, and 30.  There is even support for T-Mobile’s VoLTE and VoWiFi features as seen here:

There is an Over-The-Air (OTA) update for the OnePlus 6 today, so you may see that when you are configuring the phone for the first time.  This update will bring the system to OxygenOS 5.1.5 with the May security patch.
