OnePlus has come a long way ever since it entered the smartphone market a few years ago. It received instant recognition with its first flagship and its successors didn't fail to catch the attention of the gadget lovers. The OnePlus 3, third generation device of the company's flagship which was released in June this year, too earned the acclaims of the critics and sold like hot cakes.

The OnePlus 3 received praises for its impressive specifications, but it seems the reason for its good business is not the features or the aggressive pricing. Interestingly, the company's co-founder Carl Pei has said in an interview posted on XDA Developers that an internal survey has found out that the reason behind the good sales of the device is its battery which comes with Dash Charge technology.
