The OneStep+ is the first Polaroid Originals camera that uses Bluetooth wireless technology that allows it to be paired with the official Polaroid Originals app. In doing so, it enables you to use six new features, including a remote trigger, double exposure, light painting, self-timer, manual mode, and noise trigger.

The camera features a big square viewfinder, boxy shape, large base, a retro-style flash, and a large film ejector.
Bluetooth-enabled shooting modes. Large, excellent prints.
I’m happy to report, as in the I-1, the bluetooth feature is easy to use and the camera pairs without any fuss. The app is quick to download and easy to use. It leads you through the pairing process quickly, and you can have it up and running in a few short minutes.

What reviewers didn't like

May be challenging for some users to learn to use, but not for those familiar with polaroid cameras. Some faulty models reported.
Film is expensive. Polaroid Originals sells packs for $15.99. Each includes eight shots, which brings the price of each photo to about $2.
Extra features useless without a phone to hand
Expensive film, Color materials are finicky.
There's also the issue of the price of Polaroid Film. It's very expensive, just as it was many years ago. Eight prints (yes, just eight) can set you back around $15.

Built-in battery only. Expensive per shot.
The viewfinder still isn’t super accurate, so don’t be surprised if you have a bit of trouble framing at first.
