Just few months back OnePlus 5 came out and now we have a new phone. This is the frequency of big companies. Same thing happened with 3 and 3T also. Official price of 64 GB OnePlus 5T is Rs 64,900 and 128 GB model is Rs 72,900. We experienced this new phone and it is really good looking and packed to top with features.
BBK Electronics really knows the market and demand. OP 5T is well recognized phone by tech enthusiasts. Many people call it best value phone due to its price and features. The new flagship holds 6.01” tall aspect ratio Optic AMOLED screen. Its panel has resolution of 1080×2160 with Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
The new tall screens make phones have less bezel design with higher real estate. This beast is rocking Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SOC. It is an Octa core processor with two quad core sets. One is low power at 1.9 GHz and next is 2.4 GHz. Powering GPU is Adreno 540 for pushing those pixels. There are two RAM or storage models available.
One is 6 GB RAM variant with 64 GB storage and next is 8 GB RAM with 128 GB storage. Be careful while choosing storage because there is no SD card slot. Space is most important because 6 GB RAM is more than enough for multi-tasking. OP5T is running on Android 7.1.1 with Oxygen OS which is near stock UI.
One of the interesting thing is camera also. OnePlus doesn’t compromise with hardware and camera because they only make few phones actually. The new 5T comes with two camera (16+20 MP) f/1.7 sensors at back. Front side also features 16 MP f/2.0 shooter with Gyro EIS. There is no OIS in any side because inclusion of that could have made it brilliant.
Users can shoot at 4k at 30 fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p at 120 fps. There is auto HDR, manual mode, RAW shooting capability and lots of modes. Dual back camera set is specialized to take photos with blur background or bokeh. It does a pretty good job getting high details and better look. Photos come out fantastic as well as videos look great.
OnePlus 5T has a very slim design and light weight. We personally love that black version, actually we love black color gadgets. It holds a 3300 mAh battery which can easily run the phone for whole day. There is Bluetooth 5, Dash Charging, fast fingerprint sensor at back and ridiculously fast face unlock.
In our test, the face unlock was exceptionally fast than expected. The 5T packs all the basic necessary sensors, powerful hardware in a neat package. Overall we really love the the phone and recommend it all the way. If you are a videography lover and media collector do get model with higher storage.
Higher RAM and storage model will serve better in all terms. There is higher head room for multi-tasking and double storage at a little addition of money is good. We still want companies to add memory card support and keep head phone jack.
