OnePlus 5T flagship phone gets a New Look

OnePlus 5T was officially launched on Friday, November 17 in New York City and it became an instant favorite among fans and reviewers.

Chinese OEM OnePlus already told us about the Open Beta program.

Starting off with the value, OnePlus 5T is fairly and reasonably priced-US$499 for the 6GB/64GB variant and US$559 for the 8GB/128GB variant. The facial recognition software of the Galaxy Note 8 is not as safe as one would have expected it to, and it's not as fast as the one featured by the OnePlus 5T either. The fingerprint sensor has also been moved to the rear of the device to accommodate the all-screen display. This results in a rear-mounted fingerprint reader.

The new OnePlus 5T builds upon the original OnePlus 5 with a new screen, a new camera, and updated software. Unlike the iPhone X, this device does not use hundreds of data points to recognize your face.

Elsewhere, design-wise, the iPhone X features a premium all-glass design surrounded by a metal frame.

OnePlus has rejigged the camera department with its latest offering.

Is it worth the upgrade? Its 3300mAh lithium-polymer battery supports OnePlus' proprietary Dash Charge (5V, 4A) to enable fast charging.

Larger in all departments from the OnePlus 5, the same holds true for its when compared to the iPhone X as well. It does not sacrifice security for speed though, as the feature only really unlocks the OnePlus 5T. While we're yet to benchmark the smartphone, it's unlikely many will have complaints when it comes to performance. Neither phone offers a built-in microSD port. I'd imagine paying for goods via contactless should be fine, though, since as long as you have PIN protection, and your phone is unlocked, you can use Android Pay in shops. Unlike on the iPhone X, you have the option to choose either one here.

How the OnePlus 5T stacks up against Apple's iPhone X

Now OnePlus has released yet another Open Beta update to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

It's worth noting that even the OnePlus 3 had to face a similar fate past year, but owing to the fact that its successor only came with non-cosmetic improvements under the hood, which only revealed themselves when put to the blade by benchmarking tests, the news of the upgrade did not seem as harsh on the millions of users who had invested their money in the OnePlus 3.

Camera: When it comes to camera features, the OnePlus 5T sports the same one that was present in the OnePlus 5.

In lighting below 10 lux, the OnePlus 5T will switch to the secondary camera, which can also combine four pixels into one to produce cleaner images in low light.

The front camera is identical to the OnePlus 5, which boasts a 16-megapixel Sony IMX371 sensor of 1-micron pixel size and an aperture of f/2.0.

OnePlus 5T is a dual sim, Android 8.0 (Oreo) smartphone, with Octa-core (4×2.45 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo) CPU, 6/8 GB RAM, 64/128GB storage, 6 inches display, 16M display colors and 35000 mAh battery.

OnePlus ships the phone with Android Nougat mixed up with Oxygen OS 4.7.

There are also changes made to its dual-camera setup, now the secondary camera a dedicated low-light shooter (a claim which we can not believe till we see the results).
