OnePlus 5T first-impressions review

OnePlus 5T first-impressions review

The Moto Z2 Force costs an insane £719, the Samsung Galaxy S8 sits at £669 and the HTC U11 is £599. So, is it worth upgrading to the OnePlus 5T? It also uses a default theme that is a mix of sunset oranges, pinks and blues, which produce a pleasing effect that's immediately eye-catching. The Chinese OEM's latest flagship offering is obviously an improved version of the OnePlus 5. Let's also not forget that most OnePlus phones ask us to take a hit in the camera department.

Whenever costly phones like iPhone X or Google Pixel 2 are bashed (here and here) and their alternatives are discussed, OnePlus is always mentioned.

OnePlus has also made a decision to keep the headphone port once again.

There is no waterproofing of any kind, nor any form of wireless charging.

While OnePlus has kept the pricing of the OnePlus 5T the same as its predecessor. The phone will officially go on sale on 28 November in India. OnePlus has incorporated an electronic image stabilization feature into the rear camera that works when shooting 4K, 30-FPS video, as well. Instead of the traditional combo of a wide and telephoto lens like in the OnePlus 5, the new phone packs a second "low-light camera".

The front facing camera is a 16Mp sensor with f/2.0 aperture and is pretty decent in daylight.

Other than these changes, it's essentially the same phone as the OnePlus 5.

Underneath the hood, the OnePlus 5T packs the same Snapdragon 835 processor, along with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which are the exact same specs on the OnePlus 5.

Making the OnePlus 5 obsolete so soon may annoy its users who spent a lot of money to get their hands on one, but the company has its eyes on competition. The screen also has thinner bezels. This is hidden by default, creating a pleasing full-screen effect on apps, but can be revealed by swiping up and can even be pinned in place if you prefer. The device will come with some new features including Gaming DND, OnePlus Reach to make data transfer faster and duplicate apps for social media accounts.

In addition to the Sunlight Display feature, the OnePlus 5T also comes with a game mode that disables notifications for when you play games so that you can play uninterrupted. We'll update these initial impressions to a full review with score and verdict in the coming days. The Oreo beta shouldn't be too far off - it's already being tested on the 3 and 3T, but it's nevertheless a little unfortunate that OnePlus couldn't bring Oreo at launch. It'll be interesting to see how much of a difference there is in endurance between these two phones, but we'd guess the OnePlus 5T will still be the better one due to the more efficient chip.

OnePlus has designed the OnePlus 5T with a metal chasis with optimised ergonomics to save the device from looking like "an uninspired brick".
