OnePlus 5T review: A true flagship in every way

 

Although it isn't as cheap as OnePlus phones from years gone by, this - on first impressions - still seems like an incredible phone, that just also

Big and vivid 18:9 ratio display ; Dash Charge is great as always ; Solid ergonomic build ; Speedy and smooth performance

Still no QuadHD resolution ; No Android Oreo yet ; No IP-rated water or dust resistance ; Camera not quite a flagship

Being hyper-critical, there are still a couple of areas that need improving if the OnePlus 5T is going to be a genuine killer of flagship phones. It would be nice if the camera offered that "instantly brilliant" automatic performance of the Samsung...

OnePlus 5T Smartphone Review

 

It is back! Only a few months after its predecessor was released, OnePlus has now presented its newest smartphone. The OnePlus 5T comes in the modern 2:1 format and has improved cameras. But are there enough changes for it to be a convincing update?

very stable metal case ; wide range of LTE bands ; fast Wi-Fi ; fast UFS-2.1 memory ; very high performance ; color-accurate screen ; slim, up-to-date software ; precise GPS ; clear call quality ; optional dark software theme ; very good cameras ;...

rather heavy ; no microSD slot ; microphone distorts loud sounds ; lack of color at wider viewing angles ; not water or dust resistant ; heats up under extreme load ; minimal loss in performance at very high load

The OnePlus 5T is a great smartphone for smart spenders: A good price, low power consumption and a great price-performance ratio. The OnePlus 5T is currently one of the fastest smartphones available that also offers a very durable battery, good...

OnePlus 5T review

 

The best from OnePlus just got better

Great design and build ; Flagship performance at half of its price ; Face unlock is unreal

Still runs Nougat ; 'Only' full HD resolution ; No microSD card slot

While it lacks in few areas - no QHD display, stereo speakers, microSD support or the best camera in the class - we are still confident to call it the best value for money phone right now. It never disappoints.

OnePlus 5T

 

OnePlus 5T review: Despite the OnePlus 5 being out for barely 5 months, it now has a successor: the OnePlus 5T. We take a look at the new device.

Good OLED screen ; Slick software experience ; Still excellent value ; Seriously fast

No water-resistance ; Average camera

When the OnePlus 5T first leaked it was rumoured the new 18:9 display would be complemented by a much bigger battery. Those rumblings didn’t come to pass though, and the 5T ships with the same 3300mAh cell as its predecessor.

OnePlus 5T review

 

UPDATE: Sandstone white model tested - Bigger screen. Better camera. Same price. Need we say any more?

18:9 aspect screen brings it bang up to date ; Slight camera improvements ; Same great performance & battery life

No waterproofing, wireless charging ; Camera quality still middle of the pack ; A bit too soon?

The latest phone to super-size its screen keeps the price right, making it a great value choice

OnePlus 5T review

 

If you bought a OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T might annoy you by its mere existence. Is the six-monthly flagship phone cycle ever a good idea?

OnePlus 5T review

 

The OnePlus 5T gives you this year's must-have mobile tech for less.

6-inch AMOLED screen with slim bezels ; Great performance, simple software ; Competitive price ; Face unlock works well ; Capable camera with strong portrait mode

No water resistance ; Old version of Android installed at launch

OnePlus continues to make it difficult to justify spending more on a smartphone. So don’t. The OnePlus 5T is really all you need.

OnePlus 5T review: Star Wars edition launching in India

 

OnePlus' refreshed flagship has a swanky new screen and a camera that's intended for use in low-light; and a Star Wars edition is on the way

Big 18:9 screen ; Same size as before ; Reasonable price

No microSD expansion ; No waterproofing

For me, the OnePlus 5T strikes the perfect balance between affordability, performance, design and battery life. It’s pretty much the perfect smartphone.

OnePlus 5T review: A $500 mid-range phone with the heart of a $900 flagship

 

The OnePlus 5T refreshes the 5 with a new 6-inch screen and skinny bezels, and a camera that's better but still a step below the best.

Display upgrade brings it in line with premium Android phones. ; Chip and battery life are simply stellar. ; OxygenOS is nearly as good as stock Android.

Camera is better, but the loss of a telephoto lens is a bummer. ; No expandable storage, water resistance, or wireless charging.

Despite its Never Settle mantra, OnePlus’s phones have always come with certain caveats. The the OnePlus 5T has its compromises, but the company's aggressive strategy of rolling out new handsets twice as fast as its Android peers has paid big...
