The OnePlus 5T gives you an "all-screen" experience and face unlock

The OnePlus 5T gives you an

Four months after introducing the OnePlus 5, the phonemaker is at it again with its latest marquee phone, the OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus 5T features a 6.01-inch, 18:9 ratio, 2,160×1,080 pixels, Full Optic AMOLED display that looks handsome with the all-aluminum, sleek body.

Moving on from the new display, OnePlus' next biggest update is a new camera system.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus 5T won't be shipping with Android 8.0 Oreo.

The non-removable battery is 3,300mAh, a day's use can be achieved through half an hour of charge via USB-Type C. The 8GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage variant is priced at Rs. 37,999.

According to OnePlus, the OnePlus 5T will be available for pre-order from the official store as of today with a price set at U.S. $499 for the 6GB/64GB version and USA $559 for the 8GB/128GB version. Face ID this isn't.

The smartphone is touted to come with new camera sensors on the back. It works works impressively fast, but it's not meant for serious security and can't authenticate payments.

Unlike the OnePlus 3T, the 5T does not get a notable bump over the previous generation in terms of core specs. As per the company, the result should be cleaner low-light shots.

The camera interface has also been tweaked to allow more gesture-based operations than visible menus on the screen. Stock Android requires a swipe even after recognition has been confirmed, and I liked that OnePlus cut that step out entirely. Only the massive-handed will be able to reach their thumb to the top of the display, and for us texting with one hand is impossible.

It's also definitely a two-handed phone. Repeatedly, our 5T got about 80 percent through the process and failed.

OnePlus 5T, the upgrade to OnePlus 5 is now official. The difference is that second lens.

Improvements have also been made to the real camera, which now packs a wider-aperture secondary rear camera. When it comes to imaging, the smartphone offers improved cameras coupled with Intelligent Pixel Technology and enhanced low-light performance. However, in ditching the telephoto lens, the new phone loses its predecessor's 2x optical-zoom capabilities. OnePlus's solution doesn't employ special hardware or software like FaceID on the iPhone X, and the display needs to be turned in order for it to work. Also, this gives a bit of a boost to the depth mode with portraits getting more character than before.

But the question is should you buy OnePlus 5T? Likewise, water resistance hasn't been bolstered; the 5T is still guarded only against splashes, without a proper IP rating. Instead, it will ship with Android 7.1 Nougat.

The OnePlus 5T comes with a parallel application feature where users can create a shadow app of their social media apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype and log into two different accounts at one time. It features the popular Snapdragon 835 processor, found on most of today's market-leading phones, backed up by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage - although there is a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage available. OnePlus said they weren't going to develop something until they are certain the can deliver the best to their customers and OnePlus 5T is just that. However, OnePlus, true to its reputation for quality at a budget price, is offering that same design experience at a much more affordable £449. The company still insists on the Full HD display and has thus passed over Quad HD display which most of the premium devices are offering.
