Hands-on: OnePlus 5T review

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. They're small, and that's great; it helps the OnePlus 5T look much more like a proper 2017 flagship. As the name suggests, you just look at the phone to unlock it.

We briefly spent time with the OnePlus 5T to test the new features that came with it.

The switch to a bigger screen necessitated changes to the chassis. You're able to change the navigation bar and the order of the buttons, for example, and assign different long press or double tap actions to each key. The fingerprint sensor has made its way on the back panel and there's a face recognition feature with an improved front-facing camera. The larger display with its functional benefits of size and more room for actual usable display surface in addition to the enhanced visual appeal are not the only improvements with the display. It can auto-adapt to bright sunlight and other harsh conditions, and you can tune the display's colors for accuracy (such as DCI-P3 or sRGB) or vividness. While the OnePlus 5T is nowhere close to a true "bezel-less" device, it features slim bezels that compare favorably to the Pixel 2 XL, LG V30, and other edge-to-edge devices. How useful is that to you? The OnePlus 5T is available in three colour variants - Midnight Black, Slate Gray and Soft Gold. Pair all that with the price of Rs 32,999, which is unchanged from their last flagship OnePlus 5. We couldn't fetch any samples shot on OnePlus 5T, but we'll be sharing unedited images when we review the sample. For me, OnePlus has always offered impressive devices that gives the user good value for money.

Keeping that in mind, if you're looking to the OnePlus 5T as an upgrade that will serve you with a new version of Android software, that won't really be the case until the end of next month, and that's if the software is actually pushed out on time.

It's a tiny bit taller than the OnePlus 5 to accommodate the new screen, measuring 156x75x7.3mm. Since it'll be in beta, there is a chance that there will be bugs which may cause some features not to work or work as well as intended.

The 5T will runs OxygenOS, the OnePlus version of Google's Android operating system, with an update expected for the newly launched Oreo 8.0 version of the software expected early next year.

One thing that has yet to be considered here, is perhaps one of the most important factors about upgrading - cost.

OnePlus has finally launched its latest flagship device, the OnePlus 5T at the launch event in NY. No matter how you slice it, that's at least $1,000 over the course of six months just for your smartphone.

Numerous other specs of the OnePlus 5T are similar to the OnePlus 5.

The OnePlus 5T comes with the same main camera as that of OnePlus 5, but there is improvememt in secondary camera for superior low-light photography with f/1.7 aperture. It sports a dual camera setup on the rear featuring 16MP + 20MP camera sensors with one wide-angle and one telephoto lens and a 16MP front selfie shooter.
