Users report some OnePlus 3 and 3T units have crooked cameras (Updated)
Update, March 23: The person who took the image above, which started the original Reddit discussion about crooked cameras on the OnePlus 3/3T, commented that the camera bump on his phone is NOT in fact crooked. The camera is actually straight, but it appears crooked due to the angle of the shot.
That said, multiple users over on Reddit, our own comment section, and other websites said that the camera’s on their devices are crooked to various degrees, so it looks like the story still has a kernel of truth to it.

If you are a OnePlus 3 or a OnePlus 3T owner, you might not want to read this.

Although it’s not a huge defect, it’s definitely something that you won’t be able to unsee once you notice it. And by the looks of it, it’s not an isolated case either. That’s not to say that this is a widespread problem though – while some comments show other OnePlus 3 and 3T users noticing that their devices also have camera bumps that aren’t perfectly aligned, most seem to have no issue.
OnePlus hasn’t acknowledged the issue yet, but if your device also has a tilted camera bump, you should give them a call to see what they can do. After all, the company urges us to “never settle.”
