Best OnePlus phones 2023: All the latest OnePlus phones ranked


If you’re a dedicated OnePlus fan unsure of which model to buy, then this is the guide for you. The expert team at Trusted Reviews has reviewed and thoroughly tested all the best OnePlus phones and selected the top choices for every budget.

Back in 2013, OnePlus started life as a small startup, releasing a single flagship smartphone every year and building hype with a dedicated fanbase. However, that model has shifted in recent years following a buy-out by competitor brand Oppo. As a result, OnePlus now tends to release multiple phones a year, producing multiple product lines targeting various price points, be it budget, high end or even a rumoured foldable.

Even if you have narrowed down your choice of smartphone to OnePlus, the decision of which to buy can still be a difficult one. Prices range wildly and it can be a challenge to work out which features you actually need – you likely won’t need the flagship OnePlus 11 if you only use your phone for basic tasks, for example.

That’s why we at Trusted Reviews have recommended multiple devices at varying prices, from cheaper options to full-blown flagships.

All the OnePlus phones below have been fully tested by one of our product experts, who used the smartphone as their main device during the review period, transferring their SIM and favourite apps for at least a week. As a result, our recommendations all have good screens, adequate battery life and reliable build quality.

We also have a selection of other best lists for those who are open to trying products from other brands: our best camera phone round-up, for instance, while our best cheap phone and best mid-range phone lists focus solely on more affordable options.

How we test

How do we test OnePlus phones?

All the phones included in our Best OnePlus phone list have been thoroughly tested and used by one of our product experts. We never review a phone based purely on specs and benchmark scores. We use them as our everyday device for the review period, which is usually at least five days but often a lot more.

Whenever you read a phone review published on Trusted Reviews, you should be confident that the reviewer has put their personal SIM card into the phone, synced across their most-used apps and logged into all their typical accounts. We do this so you’ll feel confident in our review and trust our verdict.

OnePlus 11

Best OnePlus phone
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Stunning 6.7in AMOLED display
  • Solid flagship performance
  • Great rear camera performance
  • All-day battery life


  • No wireless charging
  • Basic selfie camera setup

The OnePlus 11 is a fantastic all-rounder and one of the best OnePlus handsets for those who want their phones to take on everything, from photography to gaming. It features a top-end 6.7-inch AMOLED display with LTPO 3.0, which allows it to dynamically drop down to as little as 1Hz to save battery, and reach up to 120Hz refresh rate for more intensive tasks. We loved the display, as its 2K resolution is able to present video and media content with striking detail, making it a great device to binge-watch your favourite TV shows on. 

The triple-camera set-up is also nothing to sniff at, with the camera sensors including a 50-megapixel main camera, a 48MP ultra-wide camera with a 115-degree field of view as well as a 32MP 2x telephoto lens. This trio is truly capable and can handle a variety of scenes and environments, with night-time shots being produced with plenty of detail and light, more so than we could see with the naked eye. 

OnePlus packed this phone with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset which provided top-end performance. During our time with the handset, we did not experience any lag or stuttering, even while scrolling through media-heavy apps like Facebook and Twitter. Our benchmark testing showed impressive results, and it was more than capable of running games like Call of Duty Mobile. 

While this phone is not as affordable as some other OnePlus handsets, like the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite and slightly older OnePlus 10T, it’s nowhere near as expensive as some other flagship Android and Apple phones on the market, and we think it’s well worth the price for the performance.

If you’re after an all-around handset that can tackle night photography and packs a vibrant screen, the OnePlus 11 could be the phone for you.

OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite

The best affordable OnePlus phone
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Camera holds up OK during the day
  • Eye-catching green colour
  • Large display
  • Loud stereo speakers


  • No ultra-wide camera
  • Limited performance
  • Default colour tuning doesn’t look great
  • Not great for video or low-light photos

The OnePlus 11 might be the best high-end OnePlus phone, but if your budget is a lot lower, we’d recommend the Nord CE 3 Lite instead. This is a more modest phone, but it still outperforms its price tag in many ways by offering a great build, decent performance, some of the fastest charging around, nice software and 5G support.

The star of the show is the phone’s fast charging. While the battery life isn’t a complete success – our reviewer noted that it was a solid all-dayer but lacks the stamina for a full second day – the fact you can get a 50% charge in 18 minutes with the plug included in the box is great value at this price. It trumps most of the budget and mid-range options around.

You’ll also get a headphone jack and expandable storage – two things you won’t find on the OnePlus 11 – plus a respectable 6.72-inch LCD display that can refresh at 120Hz, giving it a smoother feel and offering a decent gaming experience during our tests.

Our reviewer was impressed with the main 108MP camera and OnePlus’ approach to tuning in particular, with colours generally true to life, decent dynamic range enhancement and great depth to images. However, low-light photography is disappointing, and despite looking like a triple camera setup, the other sensors are junk 2MP depth and macro lenses.

Performance is fine for day-to-day use and will meet the needs of casual phone users, but the year-old Snapdragon 695 chipset is starting to show its age when compared to non-OnePlus alternatives.

OnePlus Nord 2T

The best mid-range OnePlus phone
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Classy glass design with refined haptics
  • Excellent gaming and general performance for the money
  • Strong primary camera, good low-light performance


  • Quite similar to the Nord 2
  • Speakers lack low-end weight
  • Disappointing display brightness in direct sunlight

The OnePlus Nord 2T may not have brought groundbreaking updates over the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, but the blueprint has been finessed to result in one of the best mid-range Android handsets around. With its restrained good looks, the classy design packs in refined haptics for better feedback and offers an in-screen fingerprint scanner.

We found that the 6.43-inch screen had a sharp resolution and good contrast, while the 90Hz refresh rate helped it to appear smooth, though it’s not quite as bright as we’d have hoped and consequently it does struggle a bit under direct sunlight.

The MediaTek Dimensity 1300 processor is great for the price, representing a real jump in GPU performance for sub-£400 phones. This device is a safe bet if you want decent gaming performance at a discount.

What’s more, the main sensor’s camera performance is surprisingly strong, delivering nice and sharp detail, though the ultrawide sensor is admittedly of far more limited quality. Battery life was also pretty good, generally leaving us with 15% at the end of the day, while the fast charging got us 50% of the battery in 17 minutes and was fully topped up after just 48 minutes. Note that there’s no wireless charging on board this model, however.

OnePlus 10T

The best flagship alternative
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Excellent performance levels
  • Great screen
  • Brilliant fast-charging


  • Middling camera
  • Controversial design
  • No IP rating or wireless charging

The OnePlus 10T is the fastest OnePlus phone around, and that’s really its main reason for existing.

It ditches the OnePlus 10 Pro’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip for the slightly faster 8 Plus Gen 1 to give this phone some of the best performance our reviewer has ever seen. RAM options go up to 16GB for the first time on a OnePlus phone.

The OnePlus 10T also charges faster than other OnePlus phones we’ve reviewed. The 150w charging took our reviewer from 0-50% in under 10 minutes and hit 100% in less than 20. This fast charging makes up for the fairly standard endurance.

Finally, a very fast 120Hz display can keep up with even the most intense games.

However, once you look past the speed, the phone is a little less interesting, and we’d say you’re still best off with the OnePlus 10 Pro if you want a true flagship. There’s no wireless charging, IP rating or 1440p resolution display, and a measly 2MP macro camera instead of a proper zoom.

OnePlus 9 Pro

Best affordable OnePlus flagship
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Excellent screen
  • Fast wired and wireless charging is a dream
  • One of the best versions of Android
  • Impressive ultra-wide camera


  • The camera can be frustratingly slow to open
  • No great zoom skills and better photos taken elsewhere
  • Not widely available on contract

The OnePlus 9 Pro might not be the latest OnePlus phone or even the current flagship, but it has seen numerous price drops since its release and if you can find one then it’s certainly worth a look.

While it doesn’t have all the latest features, including the 2023 Qualcomm chip, like the OnePlus 11, the 9 Pro remains fast to this day and packs a lovely 120Hz display and very fast charging. It even has an official IP rating.

Even in today’s market we found it’s fast enough for gaming and has a good, for the money, camera setup. Shooting in London the camera offers usable shots with decent autofocus speeds. The only downside is they’re not quite as detailed and the camera doesn’t perform as new flagships, like the Pixel 7.

We weren’t so enamoured with the look of the 9 Pro compared to the more distinctive 11, but if you prefer the more subtle camera design you might actually prefer it.
