OnePlus 5T Review

Disclaimer: This review is based on our limited experience with the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T, as the name recommends, isn’t a totally new handset – rather, it’s a much-advanced update of the super hit OnePlus 5.

If you are thinking that one plus is launching the new handset, then you need to know this that, one plus itself said that, OnePlus 5T is an upgraded version of previously launched smartphone OnePlus 5.


If we see the market in USA and UK, the OnePlus smartphone is not a just upgrade, but it is total replacement of the OnePlus 5.

As according to the OnePlus company, then have stopped sales of OnePlus 5 within launch of 6 months, and they relaunched the new smartphone OnePlus 5T. But in India the OnePlus 5 sale didn’t stopped, and have launched OnePlus 5T as well.

For the OnePlus company this is not the first time, they are doing. If we consider the model OnePlus 3, have the same story of launching OnePlus 3T.

So, what do you get with OnePlus’ second era ‘T’? The fundamental ideas are a greater screen, altered design, enhanced back camera and face recognition, in additionally few software updates. In simple words, there’s sufficient new stuff to accept it in the market.

OnePlus 5T Price and Availability

  • Launch price: from Rs 32,999
  • Release date: November 21

Fortunately, the OnePlus 5T cost is precisely the same as the OnePlus 5’s, which implies its price around at Rs 32,999 for the 6GB/64GB model, and Rs 37,999 for the 8GB/128GB variation.

It implies the OnePlus 5T is less expensive than the majority of its lead smartphones that available in the market today– however fundamentally the difference in specifications between them is the smaller.

To the extent an OnePlus company announced its OnePlus 5T launch date, that the smartphone will be available from November 21 in the India, alongside USA, UK, Europe, China, and Hong Kong. It will be only available on Amazon India.

OnePlus 5T Display 

  • Biggest-ever screen on a OnePlus phone
  • 6.01-inch Full HD, AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio

The single greatest change on the OnePlus 5T is its display, with the smartphone display is 6.01-inch Full HD AMOLED board with a 18:9 ratio, which followed the trend of the earlier released smartphone such as iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG V30.

It’s the first run through OnePlus has expanded the size of its display on their core handset (the littler OnePlus X aside), making this the greatest screen we’ve ever observed on a handset from the Chinese firm.

OnePlus has indeed selected to stay with a Full HD resolution, at 1080 x 2160 with a 401ppi pixel thickness, while competitors all boast with QHD (2K) display.

It doesn’t mean the screen on the OnePlus 5T is poor, and because of the AMOLED board colors are displays bright and punchy.

OnePlus 5T Design

  • Premium metal unibody
  • Fingerprint scanner on rear with smaller bezels up front

In OnePlus 5T, the major difference that can find is slimming down the bezels of OnePlus 5T. All smartphones that have launched this year, has a same feature as covering the complete screen with large 6-inch display.

In the OnePlus 5T design, fingerprint sensor is placed at the back of the smartphone, to give a fine attractive look to the front side.

Here you will find the Lock/power button on the right of the smartphone and volume button is on the left. Where unlike other smartphone released this year, this smartphone has headphone jack.

OnePlus company while at launch time, they have announced that, OnePlus 5T will be available in one color i.e. midnight black

OnePlus 5T Face recognition

  • Fast, easy and effective
  • Not as accomplished as iPhone X

In OnePlus 5T face recognition is the added advantage, but when we compare with iPhone X face recognition, OnePlus 5T stood second place on this comparison. As OnePlus 5T is not that much advanced as the iPhone X has, but OnePlus 5T has its own composition and where it uses 100 facial identifiers to verify it’s you.

OnePlus 5T Camera

  • Dual rear cameras: 16MP + 20MP Sony sensors
  • Revamped camera app for easier one-handed use

OnePlus 5T has the same lens when compared to OnePlus 5, when we analyses, we can get some differences in the lens. Where OnePlus 5T comes with the f/1.7 aperture. It has focused on low-light conditions.

OnePlus-5T-Camera-Review -Tech-Hemanth

OnePlus 5T has portrait mode, where like professional camera it blurs the background perfectly, with well-cut edges, here in OnePlus 5T you will find 2X zoom option on camera, but it is just digital zoom.

OnePlus 5T Battery

  • 3,300mAh may be a little small
  • Dash Charge gives you 60% in 30 minutes

The most very important thing everyone consider, apart from high end specifications is

How many Hours does smartphone battery last long?

If you offer more specifications with less battery backup, then it is very unfortunate. When we talk about OnePlus 5T this smartphone comes with the 3300mAh battery. Which is very pretty good compare to this session of smartphone launch.

This smartphone can with standby or it last whole day, for one time recharge. OnePlus 5T comes with another feature “Dash Charge Technology” means you can charge 60% in just 30minutes, which can last till a day with half an hour recharge. It does not have Wireless charging.

Other SmartPhones Relesed this year

Motorola Moto X4 is the moderate mid-range smartphone launched in this session, where Motorola Moto X4 with dual rear cameras is the one of the finest smartphone.

Whereas the Redmi Y1 Lite has made sale over 150,000 units in just 3 minutes, which is eye opening launch of this Redmi Y1 Lite product.
