The device design is based on all the aspects of Star Wars: The Last Jedi from color combination to its alert slider. The device is painted in Crait white with an explicit Star Wars logo on the metal back of the phone.

The wallpapers are adapted to the new AMOLED long screen and also comes with a Kylo Ren phone case.

The brand has more supplementary functions like the latest app folder design to the OnePlus launcher, and Parallel Apps, notification dots.

OnePlus 5T Review – Its all about the screen size

oneplus 5t review

Just like OnePlus 3T, we nearly got the same body finishing like OnePlus 3 but with different specs which includes a processor, RAM and battery life. This is year was full of bezel-less display and screen size and so OnePlus also launched OnePlus 5T soon after the launch of OnePlus 5 approximately 5 months after launch of OnePlus 5. OnePlus has come up with a taller screen which is the current trend in the mobile market. 5T launch sounds great but also disappoints those who have recently brought OnePlus 5. Let’s find out the details of the smartphone in the OnePlus 5T review.

Design

The new OnePlus 5T is somewhat similar to its forerunner OnePlus 5 in screen size. OnePlus 5T comes with 6-inch screen size, which covers a larger area of the display. Because of the huge screen size, the company had placed the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone which is quite similar to brands smartphones.

With 18:9 aspect ratio, you need to start playing a video or a full-screen mode accessing app to enjoy the bezel-less display feel. Since the display occupying much of the screen, the camera is slightly moved a bit on top of the bezel. The edges of the device are rounded as opposed to the sharper angles housing the OnePlus 5 camera.

OnePlus 5T Design

 

The dual-rear camera is placed on the back of the device with a fingerprint sensor, which gives the device a premium look and feels. OnePlus has replaced the 1.6x optical telephoto lens with a 1x 20 MP shooter that uses groups of four pixels to capture more light and apparently do better in low light circumstances.

The device body is almost same as its forerunner OnePlus 5 and it uses the same aluminum alloy shell and also same antenna lines as the 5 only difference we found is the body is just a bit bigger. The power button and volume buttons are placed exactly same as that of OnePlus 5 and the alert slider is also placed exactly as of OnePlus 5.

The device is packed with 3300 mAh battery just like OnePlus 5 and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon and 6GB & 8GB RAM. In our OnePlus 5T review process, we have slightly found a difference between the design of 5 and 5T but then we agree that OnePlus 5T still the smartphone you need to go for.

Display

One reason to buy OnePlus 5T over OnePlus 5 is its display. The OnePlus 5T is using 1080p AMOLED panel from Samsung with a Diamond Pentile arrangement and has 6-inch long screen size. Though some features of 5T are similar 5, there are features which yet updated to align with the updated OxygenOS look. The ambient display gives you an easy readout of any notification that pops up and is quite easy on the eyes to read it out.

One of the best features of OnePlus 5T is reading mode which is also available in OnePlus 5. we get a black and white display but with a color temperature balancing, which increases the comfortability in reading.

oneplus 5t display

 

OnePlus 5T doesn’t just give you default mode on display, it also provides you with a variety of option to the adjust the display as per liking. You can use the sRGB mode to get a more color-accurate experience or use the color temperature sliders to find a warmth that works for you. It’s this kind of customization that makes us love OnePlus devices, along with the ultra-customizable but still very simplistic Oxygen OS.

During the OnePlus 5T review process, we found the display really great to watch videos and play games because of its taller screen size.

Software & Hardware Performance

Even 6 months after the launch of OnePlus 5, 5T comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6/8GB RAM and 64/128GB of internal storage and these are still top of the line components. In our OnePlus 5T review process we never found any slow down in the performance even while playing very high-end games. While using multiple apps at the same time, didn’t cause any performance issue in switching between apps or launching new apps. The lightweight nature of OxygenOS, abundant RAM and Snapdragon 835 probably the reason behind the great performance of the phone.

We were quite worried about the battery performance of the device as it is packed with 3300 mAh. But, the result turns out to make us happy as the battery lasted for more than 8 hours even after being continuously used to test. The phone still comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack which is a really great news and the built-in speakers are really great to listen to music. But there is no official IP certificate, so you need to be careful while listening to music on 5T near pool or sink.

OnePlus 5T Display

The OnePlus 5T also comes with OxygenOS just like OnePlus 5, the UI remains the same with a few changes. The phone runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is upgradable to Android 8.0 Oreo. The best part of OxygenOS is that it is more like Stock Android with few of the additional features to enhance the experience. The only “bloatware” present on the device is the OnePlus Community app which can be uninstalled.

One of the security features which needs to be discussed is Facial Unlock. Facial Unlock is present in many of the android phones but more exposed in OnePlus 5T. During our OnePlus 5T review process, we found the facial unlock feature to be working great and quickly unlocks the phone. OnePlus 5T also comes with parallel apps feature which is a most needed feature for few, it helps you to log in with a different account in the same app, for example WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.

Camera

OnePlus has been known very much for its camera quality since OnePlus 3 and I have been using OnePlus since June 2016. I have always loved the pictures that are captured from OnePlus devices and so does the trend goes on. In OnePlus 5T favor a 20 MP 1x camera that uses groups of four pixels to perform better in low light.

OnePlus 5T Camera

With the Bokeh effect, the camera captures a great picture with blurred background and we found that the subject is focused enough to give a good output. The camera performed well in the bright daytime and we could find best results but couldn’t perform well in the low light area. Compare to other brands, like Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the phone doesn’t perform well based on the quality. The secondary rear camera only works great only in good light area and phone analyses when to use it.

The front camera appropriately captures good pictures and gives a quality output which you can share it on social media. Video recording goes up to 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps, or 720p slow motion at 120fps. This is slightly disappointing, as other phones on the market can capture better slow-mo video. However, the video is still smooth and crisp, and the quality should be adequate for most people.

Verdict

In our OnePlus 5T review, we came out to a conclusion that 5T is slightly better than 5. We started the review with its display and we are glad that out of the all features of OnePlus 5T, its display turned out to be the best with AMOLED screen. In our review, we figured out that if you already own OnePlus 5 then you need to buy OnePlus 5T but if you are planning to buy a new smartphone in this price range then we would suggest you go for OnePlus 5T.
