OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 3T: Is it worth the upgrade?

17 Novembre 2017

After weeks of speculations, and leaks that revealed the phone much in advance, the OnePlus 5T has been launched in India. We couldn't fetch any samples shot on OnePlus 5T, but we'll be sharing unedited images when we review the sample. OnePlus 5T will come in two variants, the first one with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage while the second variant will come with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.

The starting price of OnePlus 5T is $499 for the 64GB version with 6GB RAM. It is an Amazon exclusive smartphone which will also be available on OnePlus India Online Store. However, OnePlus does say that an update to Oreo will be provided at a later date. Open sales begin in 33 regions from November 21. We don't care about the latter too much, but the former is something the OnePlus 5T lacks in comparison to almost every other Android flagship this year.

Without further ado, here's everything that's new on OnePlus 5T and OxygenOS 4.7, its Android-based operating system. This offer will be available until December 2. The OnePlus 5T open sale will begin on November 28 2017 in India along with the European Union and United States market. And in addition to a proper Adaptive Screen Mode, the OnePlus 5T comes with three other display profiles: Default, sRGB and DCI-P3. It has the same design, that uses a metal body with expertly curved corners. "The 5T's 6", 2160x1080 display doesn't grow the overall size of the phone much.

The display is altered with a 6.01in Optic AMOLED panel that uses a 1080x2160 resolution to create the 18:9 aspect ratio.

You can also double tap the power button to quickly take a picture when the screen is off. The screen is now taller, which has pushed the fingerprint reader to the back. However, OnePlus says the optimisations it has introduced ensure the new handset loads apps and games faster than any other smartphone in the market.

OnePlus is trying to make up for the relocation by offering an alternate unlocking solution using facial recognition technology. There's also a 16MP front-facing camera (IMX371) with an aperture of f/2.0.

Not to be left behind by Apple's new Face ID tech, the OnePlus 5T comes with its own face snapping smarts. The battle for swappable batteries in desirable phones is long over, and the 5T packs a 3300-mAh non-user-serviceable battery. The difference between both phones is that OnePlus removed the telephoto lens over the 20MP sensor and gave it a standard lens with an f1.7 aperture. This camera comes with improved portrait mode, low-light photography, and video stabilisation compared to its predecessor, the company says.

The lack of OIS always hurt the OnePlus 5 so the company's is trying to fix that with something called Intelligent Pixel Technology. The device is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked at 2.45GHz coupled with Adreno 540 GPU. OnePlus 5 was one of the best performing smartphones we tested, and there's no doubt the OnePlus 5T is going to be any different on that front.

When looking at the OnePlus 5T, it is hard to believe that it is not a completely new flagship killer.
