Within five months of launching OnePlus 5, Chinese company, OnePlus launched one more flagship smartphone, OnePlus 5T at a glitzy event in New York in September 2017. The most specifications of OnePlus 5T are old ones. Variants are also two and most importantly there is no difference in price. In a way, this Chinese company has broken its favor with OnePlus 5 in one stroke. It is so certain that in view of the price of OnePlus 5T, those people will be annoyed who spend about 30,000 rupees on OnePlus 5. On the other hand, the company also adopted all marketing strategies before launching OnePlus 5. The price difference between OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 is just 2,999 rupees. The OnePlus 5T smartphone has Face Unlock technology like Apple’s iPhone X. Let’s know how is onePlus 5T. Here we come up with an expert 2018 OnePlus 5T review in India.

OnePlus 5T Design
The company has not made much changes in the design of OnePlus 5T. Its display is different from the previous smartphone. The company has introduced OnePlus 5T with a badge equipped display. There has been no change in the things used in this construction. Aluminum body has been given in OnePlus 5T. The company has removed the ‘horizon line’ from the design of this smartphone. While there was ‘horizon line’ in the design of OnePlus 5.
Type-C USB is given in OnePlus 5T. 2.0 rated device is given at the bottom of the device. This smartphone has a 3.5mm headphone jack. At the bottom there is a 3.5mm audio socket and a large speaker grill with USB Type-C port. On the left side is OnePlus’s trademark oneplus alert slider, which will help you move to Do Not Disturb mode quickly. In addition, the volume buttons are also on the right side. There are two Nano SIM slots on the right and the Power button is on the same side. Storage can not be increased, because of this there is no MicroSD card slot.
OnePlus 5T Display
The main or only reason for launching OnePlus5T can be the 18: 9 aspect ratios display. Because the FullView display has been in trend in 2017 and OnePlus was looking forward to other companies. Even though the specification of OnePlus5 is still strong, but in the case of look it rarely attracts customers, especially in front of the current challenges. In such a way, oneplus could have the risk of staying behind. That too when this company is known to sell only one model at a time.
The resolution of 6.01-inch Amoled Screen is 1080×2160 pixels. We believe that this setup will become the standard of this price level. The screen is bright and vibrant. We did not have any problems during use. Interested customers would be pleased to know that the lack of one-of-five jelly scroll effects did not make us appear in OnePlus 5T.
OnePlus has given a long screen while in trend. But the company missed the phone without a border. The sides of the front glass are curved. The borders are still visible all around the screen. We have also seen something like Oppo F5, Vivo V7 Plus and Honor 9i. The funny thing is that this phone will be available only in black color. It is possible that OnePlus will also present a new color variant in the future, as it did earlier.
OnePlus 5T Price in India
The smartphone was launched at a starting price of Rs 32,999 but now its starting price is Rs 34,999. OnePlus 5T is only available on Amazon at a handsome price tag of Rs. 34,999 with 32 GB variant and other 64 GB model is be sold at Rs 39,999. It is the lowest price of OnePlus 5T at Amazon. This smartphone is not available in other online stores. This phone comes with in 64 GB, 128 GB storage variants.
OnePlus 5T Face Unlock Feature
The location of the fingerprint sensor has changed. So far it was present at the bottom of the display, but now it has gone back to the previous part. It is easy to reach and it works fast. OnePlus has also used Face Recognition Technology in the phone. You will be able to unlock the handset using the OnePlus 5T front camera. It works just like Oppo F5. It takes a little time to set up. But after that unlocking the phone becomes fast and easy.
OnePlus 5T Processor and Storage
The news of the Snapdragon 836 processor being the OnePlus 5T was completely rumored. Because Qualcomm has not yet installed such a chipset. The Snapdragon 835 processor has been used in the new smartphone, which is the best mobile chipset in today’s date. Like the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, this mid-cycle upgrade has nothing new in terms of performance. A variant is of 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage and the other variant has 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage.
OnePlus 5T Software
Talking about the software, it is frustrating to know that OnePlus 5T still runs on Android 7.1.1 Nuga. The company has its own oxygen OS 4.7. The company promises to release an update of Android 8.0 in the beginning of 2018. Oxygen OS still has many customization options, yet the experience is almost the same as the stock Android.
OnePlus 5T Camera
We had only one complaint from OnePlus 5 that the outer edges of the rear camera were going down easily. It seems the company has removed this shortage this time. The camera’s bulge does not seem strange. Now it is closer to the design of the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 8 Plus. The responsibility of the existing secondary camera on the back of the new smartphone is now to give better performance in low light. You will get a 20 megapixel sensor with 16 megapixels on the rear side. Both of them have an aperture F / 1.7. In low light the camera app will automatically switch to secondary rear camera so that performance is better. Because there are two cameras, support for Portrait mode is available.
OnePlus 5T Battery
OnePlus 5T has a battery of 3,300mAh. This battery has a non-removable lithium-icon with dash charging technology. The battery of this smartphone will be charged soon through Dash Charge Technology.
- Large, bright and clear screen
- Excellent battery Power
- Mind blowing software features
- Superb performance
- Photo quality in daylight could be better
- There are lacks of weatherproofing or wireless charging
Will iPhone X get the challenge from OnePlus 5T?
Like Apple iPhone X, Face Unlock feature is also available in OnePlus 5T. Although Apple’s Face ID technology is already surrounded by questions. Now it is to see how much Face Unlock ID of OnePlus 5T is useful.
