The best phones OnePlus has created
OnePlus phones are becoming a bigger and bigger draw, with the company quickly amassing an Apple-like following of dedicated fans, and that's because of the quality of the handsets themselves.

OnePlus may have only celebrated its sixth birthday in December 2019, but in that time it has made several phones that have found themselves in our list of the best smartphones, with its 2019 lineup of phones being particularly impressive. We'd expect its 2020 devices, including the OnePlus 8, to be even more exciting.

OnePlus typically puts out two ranges of phones each year. There's the basic numbered series towards the beginning of the year, then the T phones at the end – the latter tends to be a slightly improved version of the former for each year, with the real tech boosts coming to the main series, but that's not always the case.

In 2019 those ranges had two devices each, but we're expecting the OnePlus 8 line to have three devices (including a new 'Lite' device) so this list could have even more new devices on it. The company also announced a mystery concept phone early in the year, but since that's not a commercially-available product we won't add it to this list.

So if you're in the market for a new OnePlus phone, there are lots of things to choose between – to T or not to T, older cheaper phone or newer flagship, and with the addition of the Pro devices in 2019, the decision to go with one of them is also a consideration.

So without further ado, we've ranked all the recent OnePlus phones that we've tested, to let you know what the best ones are.
