Appearance design, Display and Battry
The appearance of OnePlus Ace 3 is still the very iconic OnePlus mobile phone design style, and the camera module on the back has a sun texture scale ring. The Ace 3 in my hand is a blue version, and the back cover uses a quenched blue glass process – it feels more delicate to the touch, but it will also be stained with some marks. If you are more concerned about fingerprints, the black version with silk glass technology will be more suitable for you.
Also, OnePlus Ace3 also retains the classic three-stage switch design, which can quickly switch between ring, vibrate, and silent modes without opening the screen.
The body texture and hand feel have always been the core advantages of OnePlus mobile phones. On OnePlus Ace 2, OnePlus has made flagship glass technology popular in mid-range models. Then OnePlus Ace 2V further eliminated the screen plastic bracket and used a flagship metal middle frame on OnePlus Ace3, bringing a new 3D curved metal middle frame arc – it feels very smooth to hold.
OnePlus Ace 3 is equipped with a BOE curved screen with 1.5K resolution, and the black borders are well controlled. The quality of this screen is very good – except for the resolution, it is basically the same as the OnePlus 12’s screen. Supports LTPO adaptive refresh rate, up to 120Hz, manual screen brightness can reach 800 nits, and supports eye protection technology.
It is worth mentioning that the screen defaults to 1080P resolution, so you need to manually set the highest resolution and 120Hz refresh rate after getting the phone.
The OnePlus Ace 3 has a built-in 5500mAh battery and support 100W fast charging. After turning on smart fast charging, charging starts from 2%, and can be charged to 27% in 5 minutes, to 69% in 15 minutes, to 87% in 20 minutes, and to 100% in 25 minutes.
Configuration, Performance and Games Testing
OnePlus Ace 3 is equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 flagship chip, providing up to 16GB LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage combination. PLus, also has independent graphics chip blessing, VC heat dissipation area is 9140mm².
In terms of benchmark, I tested ANTUTU with a score of 1,712,056 points, GeekBench 6’s single-core score of 2,004 points, and multi-core score of 5,387 points. 3DMark Wilde Life Extreme 20 rounds of stress tests, the highest score reached 3678 points, and the stability reached 89.2%. This proves that the performance release of OnePlus Ace 3 is still relatively stable under long-term high load, and there will be no significant performance decline.
“Honor of King” Test: Turn on extreme image quality and extremely high frame rate. The game frame rate of OnePlus Ace 3 is maintained at 120fps, and there will be no lag. And the power consumption is only 3.855W.
“Genshin Impact” Test: Set the image quality of “Genshin Impact” to extremely high, turn on the 60fps option, eSports mode, adaptive superframe, and ultra resolution features.
At this time, the refresh rate of the PerfDog test “Genshin Impact” dropped from 60fps to 40fps – this is the effect of adaptive superframe, and the actual frame rate of the game has been increased to 120fps. Via testing, we can also see that the resolution of the game is 813×1787, and the image quality is also good.
The frame rate during the game is relatively stable, with the average frame rate hovering around 120fps, with occasional lags but not much. And the power is only 4.966W.
Photography of OnePlus Ace 3
OnePlus Ace 3 is equipped with Sony IMX890 main camera (50MP), support OIS optical image stabilization, and has a 24mm equivalent focal length. It also inherits the flagship imaging algorithm and supports ultra-clear image quality, hyper light and shadow image algorithm, and hyper light and shadow ProXDR display.
Also, OnePlus Ace 3 is equipped with a 112° ultra-wide-angle lens (8MP) and a 4cm macro lens, which can take into account the shooting needs of different scenes.
The performance of the main camera of OnePlus Ace 3 is still very good, the imaging is very fast and the colors are good. Even when cropped to 2x for shooting, the performance is remarkable – the image quality is completely adequate. The color performance when shooting food is very good, and with the ProXDR display in the album, the photos look drool-worthy.
Although the photo interface provides a 5x option, there is an obvious loss in image quality and the details are not rich enough. But if you don’t have high requirements for image quality, you can still use it.
Ultra-wide-angle and macro photography are not commonly used in daily photography. The OnePlus Ace 3 has an ultra-wide-angle equivalent focal length of 16mm, and its image quality is acceptable in well-lit scenes. If there is insufficient light, the image quality will be significantly degraded. For macro photography, the minimum focusing distance is 4cm, which is very good for shooting figures.
