The 4 Reasons Why OnePlus Is A Great Travel Photography Phone

OnePlus, touted as a flagship killer, has gained a loyal following among Filipinos because of its lower price tag as compared to most popular brands. Despite the cost, OnePlus has managed to put together all essential flagship features and encase these in beautiful hardware.

Some people may not realize it but OnePlus is actually a good travel photography phone. Here are the reasons why this is great for taking travel photographs.

1. Display

OnePlus smartphone sports a slim and almost bezel-less design; its display occupying almost its entire front panel. At more than 6 inches, its screen is currently one of the largest and brightest among flagship models. 

An accurate, big, and beautiful display is important because it will allow the user to see the details of the photographs and know the areas where there is a need to adjust.

2. Operating System

The OnePlus comes with the Oxygen OS based on the latest Android version. Its operating system is one of its main selling points because it uses a version that is close to stock Android with just a few essential tweaks. 

That means the daily usage of the phone is smooth, fast, and with no hiccups, even when resource-intensive running applications. A good operating system also means that there is a good level of accuracy, stability, and reliability in the camera settings for capturing stunning photographs.

3. Cameras

One of the features that OnePlus is best known for is its cameras. OnePlus models carry awesome camera features such as big sensor for both the front and back cameras, optical image stabilization, and a good aperture. OnePlus' camera uses artificial intelligence for a stunning Portrait Mode.

4. Water Resistance

One last feature that makes the OnePlus a great travel phone is its water-resistance. While it has only been recently that OnePlus decided to carry an Ingress Protection (IP) rating, its previous models have internals that are lined with water-resistant foams to prevent liquids from reaching the batteries and motherboard.

It can withstand short drops in the sink, light rain, and accidental spills but OnePlus cautions users in submerging the handset for an extended period of time, much more in taking it swimming.

The added durability and protection, nonetheless, makes it the perfect companion for those who love to go out on adventures.

Price and Availability

OnePlus 6 is available at all Digital Walker outlets (SM Mall of Asia, SM North EDSA, Estancia Mall, Gateway Mall, and Ayala Center Cebu). The models retail from around P40,000 to P60,000 depending on the newness.
