Oneplus phones have always had one core selling point: they’re as powerful as the latest flagship Android phones, yet cost hundreds of dollars less. That winning combination made the OnePlus 6 and 5T two of our top recommended phones of the past year. The new OnePlus 6T mostly continues that trend, but this time it’s bringing some cutting-edge innovation with it.
When OnePlus launched OnePlus 6 earlier this year, it called it its most sophisticated phone yet. Hardly six months later, it has followed it up with the 6T, with some noticeable upgrades. The biggest change on the OnePlus 6T is the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack and the provision of the in-display fingerprint sensor.
Speaking of the overall design, with its all-glass body, it looks as sophisticated as OnePlus 6. But thanks to the smaller bezels, the 6T looks even better. The screen of the OnePlus 6T is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6. As is the case with any glass back, the OnePlus 6T too is susceptible to fingerprint smudges.
It has also launched Bullets earphones, which are now available with USB Type-C connectivity. While it may not entirely be a deal breaker, it definitely makes it harder to not have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Coming to the performance, this is perhaps the best thing about a OnePlus smartphone. With the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, and RAM options of 6GB and 8GB RAM, OnePlus 6T is blazing fast. Have any number of apps open, the phone works just as fast. The battery too is larger on the 6T at 3700mAh. On a full charge, the smartphone lasted an entire day on moderate use. However, the Dash charge makes up for this.
There are very few changes made to the OnePlus 6T camera, as compared to that on the 6. The 20MP+16MP dual rear camera takes excellent shots. They look detailed, neat and capture colors very well. And like its predecessor, it comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), which ensure that even while on a fast-moving vehicle, you can take very stable images.
Battery life was excellent and still pretty good with those optimizations off. This is a dual-SIM phone – OnePlus has never supported expandable storage in its flagships.
