OnePlus 3 – The Camera Interface & Menu Options

So earlier today you got to see some camera samples from the OnePlus 3. The front and rear cameras take great shots in reasonable to good lighting. The rear camera in lowish light does start to introduce noise but that’s not a surprise considering the 1.12 microns size of the camera lens.

But what is the camera interface like? Lets take a look –


Top right on the camera screen is the menu icon which when tapped reveals all the different shooting modes.


Manual mode introduces control of a number of items with shutter speeds up to 30 seconds. You can also change the aspect ratio from 16:9, 4:3 and 1:1 in most modes. You can also turn on a grid and timer control options.


Above is the shutter speed options.


In any of the shooting modes, if you press bottom left menu you get the 3 extra settings options shown. Grid, timer, aspect ration. HDR is set to auto by default. This can be turned on all the time or switched off. There is a HD mode too for combining photos to create a higher quality version. Each mode has a range of options as follows –

Time Lapse – Grid Lines, 720p or 1080p
Slow Motion – Grid Lines, 720p only
Photo – HDR, HD, Grid, Timer, Aspect Ratios
Video – 4K, 1080p 30fps, 720p
Manual – Focus, Shutter, White Balance, ISO (100-3,200), Grid, Aspect Ratios, Timer
Panorama – no options
Front Camera – Beautify Controls, Beauty On/Off, Grid Lines, Timer, Aspect Ratios.

It is worth noting that double pressing the power buttons opens the camera, in addition to using gestures (if turned on it settings).

The camera app is easy to understand and use too.

And that is the OnePlus 3 Camera Interface.

  1. Besides looks, the other reason I got the HTC 10 was I did not expect the audio quality of the One Plus 3 to be better than average. What have you found?

  2. Would attribute more noise in low light on the +3 compared to the 10 or S7 due to the latter two having a full stop advantage over the former.

    The smaller 1/2.8″ sensor is little over half a stop behind the larger ones on the other two by itself, and then has the smaller F2 aperture in addition.

    1/4 – 1/30 will have twice the iso on the +3.
