The Marvel Avengers edition also comes with the same glaring finish along with a carbon fiber pattern.

The Midnight Black finish doesn’t feel like glass at a glance. That’s why ‘corroded’ name is given by the company for its finish and which is absolutely right. It comes with matte finish and stealthiness. While holding in hand makes the refracted pattern in the glass and first look makes you hold it once.

There is a silk white finish as well to allure your attention but it will be available after two weeks of a product launch with the black options.

Daylight shots have a warm tone, nice colors, great close-up subjects, but texture deteriorates with a slight distance. The portrait mode is not very satisfying in isolating subjects with a simple background. Low-light shots are good enough. With the bokeh lens effects mode, to distort the point of light to a star.

The front camera is normal performing and has a beautification mode. The pro model is available with manual controls and a live histogram. It covers video to 60fps at 4K in a five minute.

Mono speaker is a downside, the sound is good but at higher volume it distorts.

Battery life is good but you couldn’t see the percentage in the status bar which is annoying for many. The HD video loop worked for only 10 hours, 59 minutes which is the poor score. In just half an hour, the huge Dash Charger charges it to 50% and takes around an hour and a half in full charge.

It has a Gaming Mode, face recognition feature but bothering is the automatic unlock sometimes before the lock screen shown. Recognition feature performs low in low sunlight and bright sunlight.


With the new SoC, glass body and a new screen, it looks quite expensive than the predecessors.

With the high price tag, the camera is not that much good and battery life is average. The Mirror Black option at Rs. 34,999 makes it quite tempting. For a better life, it has a versatile and up-to-date software. OnePlus fans who are looking for an upgrade will find it quite relieving and updated.
