OnePlus 5T

 

OnePlus 5T review: Despite the OnePlus 5 being out for barely 5 months, it now has a successor: the OnePlus 5T. We take a look at the new device.

Good OLED screen ; Slick software experience ; Still excellent value ; Seriously fast

No water-resistance ; Average camera

When the OnePlus 5T first leaked it was rumoured the new 18:9 display would be complemented by a much bigger battery. Those rumblings didn’t come to pass though, and the 5T ships with the same 3300mAh cell as its predecessor.

OnePlus 5T review

 

The OnePlus 5T gives you this year's must-have mobile tech for less.

6-inch AMOLED screen with slim bezels ; Great performance, simple software ; Competitive price ; Face unlock works well ; Capable camera with strong portrait mode

No water resistance ; Old version of Android installed at launch

OnePlus continues to make it difficult to justify spending more on a smartphone. So don’t. The OnePlus 5T is really all you need.

OnePlus 5T review

 

The OnePlus 5T is the mid-season substitute to the company's flagship (and, as of late, only) smartphone. The T doesn't bring radical changes - on the contrary; it's a minor update to help the 5 stay in fashion and, as a side effect, why not spark up...

OnePlus 5T review: A $500 mid-range phone with the heart of a $900 flagship

 

The OnePlus 5T refreshes the 5 with a new 6-inch screen and skinny bezels, and a camera that's better but still a step below the best.

Display upgrade brings it in line with premium Android phones. ; Chip and battery life are simply stellar. ; OxygenOS is nearly as good as stock Android.

Camera is better, but the loss of a telephoto lens is a bummer. ; No expandable storage, water resistance, or wireless charging.

Despite its Never Settle mantra, OnePlus’s phones have always come with certain caveats. The the OnePlus 5T has its compromises, but the company's aggressive strategy of rolling out new handsets twice as fast as its Android peers has paid big...

OnePlus 5T review

 

Editors' Note : This review was originally published on Nov. 20, 2017 and was updated on Nov. 29, 2017 with additional battery information and an Editors' Choice Award.

The OnePlus 5T has a bigger screen and its camera takes better low-light photos than the 5. Its few software tweaks are useful in small ways.

The phone's face unlock doesn't authorize payments and its dual camera's digital rather than telephoto zoom is a step back. There's no expandable storage, and it's not rated for water resistance.

The OnePlus 5T is a superb, affordable phone for new buyers, despite only minor changes from the OnePlus 5.

OnePlus 5T review: Tough to beat

 

The OnePlus 5T impresses with a larger screen and better camera, at the same price.

Great screen ; Affordable price ; Premium design ; User friendly features

Camera slightly behind rivals ; Screen still 'only' HD

OnePlus 5T

 

The OnePlus 5T is the best midrange phone out there, but it's too expensive to be an American midrange phone. This creates a quandary in the US market.

Fast processor for the price. Bright screen. Better-than-average front camera. Well-placed fingerprint sensor.

Low-resolution screen for its size. Not water resistant. Modem doesn't have the latest features.

There's an 'uncanny valley' in phone pricing in the US. We buy a lot of phones that cost less than $400, but if we're going to spend $500, pretty often we spend $700, especially if that $700 phone comes with a monthly payment plan.

OnePlus 5T review: polished to a T

 

In practice, this phone isn't the total fulfillment of every objective that OnePlus set for itself nor every promise the company has made. But it's damn close.

Minimalist, elegant design ; Fits 6-inch display within the dimensions of a one-handed phone ; Thoughtfully optimized software ; Reading Mode

The main camera is still not as good as flagship competition ; Shipping without the latest version of Android is not encouraging ; Face Unlock grows frustratingly inconsistent in challenging light ; Still not waterproof

The best phone without a great camera

Want to see the OnePlus 5T before everyone else? It’ll cost you $40

 

OnePlus is set to unveil its latest handset, the OnePlus 5T, at an event in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Nov. 16. And if you want to be there, you can buy a ticket for $40.

OnePlus 5T review: A true flagship in every way

 

Although it isn't as cheap as OnePlus phones from years gone by, this - on first impressions - still seems like an incredible phone, that just also

Big and vivid 18:9 ratio display ; Dash Charge is great as always ; Solid ergonomic build ; Speedy and smooth performance

Still no QuadHD resolution ; No Android Oreo yet ; No IP-rated water or dust resistance ; Camera not quite a flagship

Being hyper-critical, there are still a couple of areas that need improving if the OnePlus 5T is going to be a genuine killer of flagship phones. It would be nice if the camera offered that "instantly brilliant" automatic performance of the Samsung...
