Some of them were pleasant, some of them were not. It is also the most dazzling part of the OnePlus 5T.
The 6in screen on the 5T is the biggest display on a OnePlus handset yet. In a Open Beta build of the Oxygen OS, OnePlus has given new features, enhancements and optimisations for OnePlus 3/3T.
The OnePlus 3/3T are receiving another major beta update under the Nougat open beta program.
Given that so many new phones are dropping the 3.5mm headphone jack, it’s worth noting that the OnePlus 5T has one. Unlike its predecessor, the 5T boasts an all-screen design around the front, which has seen the fingerprint scanner shifted to the rear of the device. The low-res screen also means that battery life will likely be good, given the 3,300mAh cell. The smartphone comes in two variants. The OnePlus 3 had OIS – which helps reduce blurring associated with the motion of a camera – but for some reason the company made a decision to remove it from the OnePlus 5. But the OnePlus 5’s 2x zoom camera is gone, replaced by a 20-megapixel “low light” camera that combines four pixels into one, to supposedly offer better images in very low light. The super-high-res 16MP front camera looks great so far, though. The new model doesn’t support wireless charging either, it sticks only with the fast charging support.

On November 16, OnePlus launched OnePlus 5T in New York City.
If given the chance, would you be willing to trade off your OnePlus 5 for the new OnePlus 5T? The phone will be available from November 21 in a single black color option. Practically speaking, the OnePlus 5T might as well be the same phone, with all the buttons and switches in the same place.
Even in terms of feel, the OnePlus 5T manages a much smoother finish as compared to the iPhone X. While the steel sides do offer the iPhone X a premium feel, it isn’t really as smooth as the OnePlus 5T’s. On the other hand, the same feature also makes it more vulnerable to minor accidents. They feature the same Snapdragon 835 chipset and same amount of RAM. Crucially, the OnePlus 5T will debut at the same price point as the OnePlus 5: the 64GB variant will retail for ₹32,999 ($507), whereas the 128GB edition will cost ₹37,999 ($585). This feature is not available in the OnePlus 5T. The company also said the phone will gain a whole day’s power in just 30 minutes of charging. In addition to giving you the best possible selfies, this lens also doubles as a facial recognition tool, what OnePlus calls Face Unlock. Fans have started calling time on the brand, which has faced calls to “stop faking it” by rebranding old phones from its parent company.
If we only look at the specs, the OnePlus 5T doesn’t necessarily seem to be the victor in this race.
