OnePlus series phones got the quantum with OnePLus 3T smartphones that were a step ahead of OnePlus 3. The smartphone featured power-packed processor, added RAM, and a greater battery life. Meanwhile, OnePlus offering for this year is OnePlus 5T, which seems a pretty nice offering from the company. However, Qualcomm has not yet revealed any of the new processors but the smartphone looks promising with whatever it has got.

OnePlus 5T is all about the screen

The device features 6.8 GB RAM that is pretty good for a device that comes under this specification. Everyone was looking forward to what the company will offer this year and here comes the review of the smartphone.

As soon as you will have your hands on the device you will encounter a premium gadget that looks impressive. OnePlus knows how to make an impression and the company has done the same with its 5T offering. With the iconic red and white Dash charger and cable nestled underneath, the smartphone is an impressive offering.

Talking about the design, OnePlus 5T seems quite similar to its predecessor. The new 6-inch screen steals the attention but occupies greater front part of the device. With this offering, the company has welcomed a smart change in the pattern of its flagship device. Talking about the fingerprint sensor, it is quite convincing and suits the overall aesthetics of the gadget. It is interesting to see how much attention the company gets with its device.

Premium yet affordable smartphone

The camera bump is now more pronounced as the smartphone doesn’t have all the components fit behind the top bezel.

This is a change that we noticed as soon as we started reviewing the smartphone. The sharper angles of OnePlus 5T camera phone is worth mentioning that of course adds more to the overall aesthetics of the device. The body of the smartphone is almost the same as it has always remained with all the devices from the company.

When it comes to the display, the phone features a 6″ 1080p Optic AMOLED panel along with a Diamond Pentile arrangement. OnePlus 5T also features contrast display that makes it a perfect smartphone to take outside. Some of the features of the phone will seem identical while others have been changed a bit to suit the updated OxygenOS look. And the examples include the Ambient display, impressive reading mode, color temperature for comfortable reading and much more.

The verdict

5T is a healthy addition to the OnePlus series that makes the company’s ambition of being into smartphone race much more prominent. This time the design is refined and the software is more robust. The 6-inch 18:9 display really makes the smartphone experience richer for a user. OnePlus 5T is thus the most amazing offering for the users who are looking for a budget phone. Talking about the camera it is just fine within the budget the smartphone is coming. All in all OnePlus 5T is a smart offering that users can have.
