OnePlus 5T price, specs and where to buy in the UK

OnePlus 5T vs iPhone X: At less than half the price, would you pick OnePlus' new flagship?

Biggest ever OnePlus screen for new 5T flagship smartphone

Yes, the OnePlus 5 was released in June this year, but when compared to the trend in 2017, the phone looked so 2016.

The spate of leaks and "hands-on" videos ahead of the OnePlus 5T launch meant we all knew what OnePlus was going to reveal. Despite having been in the rumor mills for quite some time, the excitement is still there. Simple - "when we've got new technology ready to go we don't want to leave our users with older devices", said OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. Unless we hold both the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T devices, we don't notice these minor differences. It comes with a 6.01-inch display with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio, thinner bezels and a resolution of 1080 x 2160 (FullHD +). It is incredible that Samsung has put a much bigger display on a device of nearly the same size. Apart from this, rest of the specifications largely remains similar to the original OnePlus 5.

With the bezels slimmed down, OnePlus has moved the fingerprint scanner to the rear of the aluminum-clad 5T. However, there are also some noticeable changes, especially now that the phone has a near bezel-less design. Which led to OnePlus ignoring the feedback of their ardent fans and the OnePlus community while crafting the OnePlus 2.

First introduced with the OnePlus 3, Dash Charge is one of the fastest charging solutions on the global market and a favourite feature amongst OnePlus users. Instead, it relies on the front-facing camera to unlock the device.

As seen on the OnePlus, the new OnePlus 5T also comes with the same 20MP + 16MP dual camera setup on the rear.

One of the chief complaints OnePlus received about the OnePlus 5's camera was that it kinda sucked in low-light. Previously, aperture of the secondary camera was f/2.6 but now it's down to f/1.7. So, why have a second lens that is similarly optimized for low-light performance? With Intelligent Pixel Technology, the OnePlus 5T's secondary camera merges four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity. Whether this is hardware specific or has to do with software is still unclear, but hopefully, it's worth the change. There will also be dual apps mode and a stable camera with the future OTA updates. Newly added to OxygenOS is Face Unlock, which allows OnePlus users to unlock their phone just by looking at their device. We say, "No"! The OnePlus 5 is an excellent smartphone and still a flagship.

Last but not least, what makes OnePlus 5T a worthy buy is that the company retained all the essential features of any phone in 2017. To the relief of many, the headphone jack is intact on this OnePlus handset. The phone also lacks waterproofing. While the OnePlus 5T is running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, OnePlus has announced the rollout of open beta as well as a rough idea for the final build Android Oreo.

For all the RAM junkies, yes this one gives you colossal 6GB and 8GB RAM options with 64GB and 128 GB of storage.
