Short Review:  One of the best phones on the market for the best price out there!  This phone is powerful, I MEAN POWERFUL!!!  It’s fast, snappy, speedy, great battery life, and more!! Screen is huge!  Screen is bright!!  Build quality is excellent..  This phone is GREAT!!!  This review is from the heart, its about my use.  It’s not a professional review like you would see on the tech sites

Pros
1.) Size/Screen – The large 6+ inch screen is great!!  It does have the notch, but I don’t mind the notch.  It makes the screen even larger and it looks nice!!  The size of the phone is thin and it fits great in both my hands and pockets.

2.) Powerful – This phone comes with several different configurations.  One includes 6GB ram and the other 8GB.   6GB is plenty and super snappy paired with the best mobile processor on the market currently!  This phone feels as snappy as my MS Surface.  I mean, this thing is awesome and great for anything or anyone that needs a powerful phone!

3.) Battery Life – I consider myself a very heavy user and so far my phone hasn’t died on me YET!! it makes it all day/night long!!

4.) Dash Charge – Works very well and is quick!

5.) Oxygen OS – I like O2OS.  It’s snappy.  It’s clean!! It’s “Naked”… It’s google!!  I really enjoy using it

6.) Price – The best part of the OnePlus 6?? PRICE!!!  Where else can you get the most powerful phone on the market for under $550!! NOWHERE!!!!!

Cons
1.) No wireless charging, but wireless charging sucks anyways

2.) Can’t find accessories in stores.  But they have plenty online

Man.. What else can I say?? I love oneplus and always have!!!!!

MetroPCS vs Cricket & MetroPCS Review

Another Phone Service Review

Short Review:  I have received a lot of questions after my Cricket Review to compare Cricket with MetroPCS.  Simply put, in East Tennessee, Cricket kills MetroPCS in coverage BUT MetroPCS kills Cricket in speed.  And guess what?  The areas I use a cell phone MetroPCS works fine!!  Do the MetroPCS dead spots even matter then?  Well to some they will but not to me!  Cricket has dead spots as well!  All carriers do!!

Comparison:

I compared the $50 Unlimited plan on MetroPCS and the $60 ($55 with autopay) plan on Cricket,  Both plans offer 100% unlimited everything including High Speed LTE.. Neither plan includes HotSpot

Speeds:  Cricket in my town almost always hits 7 – 8Mbps.  MetroPCS hits 45+Mbps the majority of the time BUT during rush hour I have seen it drop as low as 4Mbps..  Cricket will normally hold the 7 – 8.  Both are very useable at all times however.

Features:  Features are nearly identical.  One pro for Cricket is that they offer HD video on the $55 plan.  Metro charges a $10 add-on for HD Video.  Metro does offer a limited plan option that includes HotSpot.  Cricket DOES NOT offer this on their unlimited.

Coverage:  Like I mentioned above, coverage is fairly similar but I have ran into a few areas where MetroPCS doesn’t work like Cricket did.  On the flip side, I have found several areas where Metro works that Cricket didn’t!

Features:  This is one area metro shines.  While both carriers are limited on “base” features, Metro offers several paid features that you can add to your service.  One way these prepaid brands keep their prices lower is the lack of features on the base plan.  Cricket doesn’t offer many add on features but Metro has plenty.  You can pay to have an itemized bill (Can’t with Cricket), you can pay to have numbers blocked (Can’t with Cricket) and the list goes on.  Personally, I don’t need these features but I love having the option for them!!

Overall:  Whos the winner!?!  Well I enjoyed both services a lot.. However, for me, MetroPCS is the service I am sticking with!! Why?  I plan on upgrading to the $60 plan so I can have tethering.  So the value, in my eye, is much better on MetroPCS
