OnePlus 5T launched - here's how much it will cost in India

The latest to embrace this trend is OnePlus with its 5T smartphone, an updated version of the excellent OnePlus 5, which was released back in June.

OnePlus 5T comes with the same camera that we saw in ONePlus 5. I still believe that the some other ultra high-end phones - the iPhone X may be - could have screens that some people prefer over what OnePlus 5T packs in but for all practical purposes, my quick impression of the OnePlus 5T screen is that it is right up there with the best. Talking about unlocking, the OnePlus 5T also has a unique feature called "Face Unlock". And despite packing in a large screen, it is barely bigger, or heavier, than the OnePlus 5.

The camera set up is now two Sony sensors.

On the front the OnePlus 5T has a 6.01-inch display and it stretches almost edge-to-edge.

The iPhone X offers a similar dual-camera setup (it's quickly become the industry standard) but also features optical zoom-OnePlus can't do that. Yes the newer phone has more features, but in terms of raw shot-to-shot photo quality OnePlus just hasn't made massive strides in the a year ago. With aggressive prices comparable to previous year, OnePlus aims to tackle industry giants like Google, Apple and Samsung by offering a similar package in nearly half the price.

The phone is powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. The company's latest phone, the OnePlus 5T is no different, offering the kind of tech you'd expect from the latest Apple or Samsung device, but for half the price. A few niggles have popped up over the past couple of weeks though, and the two main things some users seem to take issue with are the "notch" and Face ID. There's also a 16MP front-facing camera (IMX371) with an aperture of f/2.0. It's not secure, though, and won't work for mobile payments. The OnePlus 5T comes in only one colour and that is Midnight Black. OnePlus is already working on Android Oreo 8.0 update for its devices but there is no confirmed date for the Oreo update.

However, enrolling my mug to begin with was at times frustrating. The device is also reported to have a software-based face unlock feature. You can now unlock the phone with your face for instance.

The screen isn't only bigger on the 5T, but it has a higher-resolution too: it's now 2160 x 1080 as opposed to 1920 x 1080. This happened at least five times, until, inexplicably, it worked.

This also makes the One Plus 5T a tad taller than its precursor

The OnePlus 5T camera has been touted as a low-light expert and that might be true considering that the primary camera comes with aperture of F/1.7. OnePlus also included fast auto-focus and electronic image stabilization to reduce shakiness in your videos. This feature combines four photodetector sites on the sensor into one, making for larger "pixels" that capture more light - the same thinking behind HTC's UltraPixel system.

Some significant changes have been made when it comes to the dual camera, which has been revamped for use with low light photography.

And that's about it, since the phone is pretty similar to its predecessor. That's a real-world improvement you'll see in battery life day after day.

This isn't a "sure thing" sort of upgrade, but you can find reason for it - and it may not be expensive.

OxygenOS also has a whitelist that forces apps into 16:9 compatibility mode if they do not support the phone's 18:9 aspect ratio. Perhaps you need a refresher that compares the OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 5. OnePlus 5 was one of the best performing smartphones we tested, and there's no doubt the OnePlus 5T is going to be any different on that front.

You may have needed an invitation to buy the OnePlus One in 2014, but the clamour was justified when the phone cost just £229 at a time when the then-flagship iPhone 5s sold for £549 and could compete on specs.

With the addition of an 18:9 display, Android's budget darling has a golden opportunity to truly join the ranks of 2017's premier handsets.
