"Most people put their phones in a case, so why does it matter what color you buy?" I hear a variation of that sentence very time I talk about phone colors and materials. But if that were the case, companies would release phones in one color — "Model T" black — and call it a day. Instead, we've seen color trends come and go, and increasingly a variety of hues, materials, and shimmer to suit anyone's tastes. And while many people do cover their phones with gaudy cases, there are an increasing number that choose to go naked, or use a clear case, to see the phone as it was intended. The OnePlus 6 comes in three colors, and each feels as distinct as it looks. Choosing which one to buy won't be easy, but hopefully, we can help. Mirror Black Mirror Black is the obvious choice for the OnePlus 6 because it's the default choice — if you want the cheapest variant of the phone, you have to choose Mirror Black. Given that the OnePlus 6 is covered in glass, the Mirror Black … [Read more...] about Which color OnePlus 6 should you buy?

OnePlus introduced navigational gestures to the OnePlus 5T earlier this year, and the feature has made its way to the OnePlus 6 as well. Gestures offer a new way to interact with the interface, and in many instances, they're a more intuitive way of navigating the UI.
