OnePlus 5T first impressions: A worthy successor for the OnePlus 5
Nov 17 2017
Battery Even with its svelte chassis at 7.3mm thin, the OnePlus 5T is accompanied with a 3,300 mAh non-removeable battery. The OnePlus 5T comes with a Snapdragon 835, a 6-inch OLED, and.
For many of us, as well-received as OnePlus phones are (and we're certainly fans of them around here), they often force us to settle in various ways. OnePlus will offer two versions of the 5T. These are impressive phones, and here's how the two compare for those considering the upgrade.
After more than a few leaks and not-so-subtle teasers, the OnePlus 5T is official - and it's at once everything you expected and a bit more. With excellent big-screen phones readily available like the Galaxy S8 and Pixel 2 XL, you'll have to look at other aspects to decide which one is right for you. It takes up more space on the front, giving you the impression that you are in for a completely different experience.
Another major change in the OnePlus 5T is that the smartphone maker has moved it fingerprint sensor the back. There's no longer room for a front fingerprint sensor, which the company has shifted to the rear panel instead.
For the rear camera in its new phone, OnePlus has also changed the lenses.
The Full Optic AMOLED display features a dedicated sunlight mode, which adapts automatically in harsh lighting so that the screen remains visible, with colours bright and clear.
Another cool feature on the smartphone is Face Unlock. How useful is that to you?
Look, I'm not here to trash the OnePlus 5T.
Other than these changes, it's essentially the same phone as the OnePlus 5.
So, what are the reasons to buy the OnePlus 5T? The 5T is fractionally taller and wider than the 5, but it features the same rounded edges and same button placements as its younger sibling.
This is the same price the OnePlus launched at earlier this year. Worth mentioning though is that it will be the beta version of Oreo software serving as the base for that version of OxygenOS, and with the phone launching on November 22nd, those who are thinking about picking it up will have about a month wait before they get bumped up to the Oreo beta with all the new goodies that are likely to come along with it. With the 5T, you'll be able to unlock your smartphone by tapping on a smiley at the screen's bottom and looking into the device's front camera. The open sale, says OnePlus, will start from November 28.
The OnePlus 5T will run Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) with Oxygen OS 4.7.
One thing that has yet to be considered here, is perhaps one of the most important factors about upgrading - cost.
The OnePlus 5T has been revealed today during a major event held in NY today by the Chinese smartphone start-up.
What you have to realize about what I just listed is that nearly all of those have been a part of the equation from day 1.
The OnePlus 5 is a popular phone with a lot to offer at an affordable price. "The OnePlus 5T features the same main camera as that of the OnePlus 5, but boasts an improved secondary camera equipped with a large f/1.7 aperture for superior low light photography".
