OnePlus 5T First Impression : Same soul, but a new face altogether

OnePlus 3/3T get Android Oreo beta One Plus 5/5T end of the year

The company has claimed that they have made the OnePlus 5T based on feedback received from users and claim to have developed the most appealing smartphone ever.

The OnePlus 5T is a little larger than the 5 by a millimetre or so in width and height, but you need to stack the two phones side by side to perceive any difference.

OnePlus is now onto its sixth flagship phone with the newly launched OnePlus 5T. The fingerprint sensor isn't next to the dual-camera system and is instead in a more central position.

When is it out?

In the USA, the OnePlus 5T has been launched with price tags of $449 and $559, respectively for the two storage models.

OnePlus 5T will go on Early Access sale on 21 November at 4:30 pm on Amazon and oneplusstore in India along with North America and Europe. The display is protected by a 2.5D Curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. Spin the phone around in your hand with the display off and, initially, you might struggle to tell the difference between old and new.

OnePlus 5T packs a big 6.01 inch display which an Optic AMOLED panel like the previous OnePlus phones.

This also means that the physical home button which had a fingerprint sensor embedded into it is gone.

While it's true the 5T doesn't give you a display quality similar to what other top flagships offer, it is definitely the closest you can get. Unlike its predecessor, the 5T boasts an all-screen design around the front, which has seen the fingerprint scanner shifted to the rear of the device. The operating system has a "Face Unlock" feature that allows over 100 people to unlock the device just by looking at the screen. Unlike the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5T has a different shape than the 5 where it has an elongated shape moving closer to the shape of premium phones likes iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, Samsung Galaxy S8.

On to the camera, the device retains the same dual camera setup on the back.

OnePlus has swapped the OnePlus 5's telephoto lens with a secondary camera, equipped with a large f/1.7 aperture that focuses on low-light photography on the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T also has improved EIS (electronic image stabilization), providing smoother, cleaner video with less camera shake. Lately, we've seen major companies getting rid of the traditional headphone jack in favor of a universal USB-C port, but OnePlus hasn't, at least for the time being.

The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard.

It is the OxygenOS interface based on Android Nougat that is running in the OnePlus 5T, and while the Android Oreo update is slated for early 2018, the Beta version of it will be available by this year end. O2 is offering a 50GB data tariff for the cost of 10GB on pay monthly and, if you pre-order or order the OnePlus 5T before 6 December, you'll also get 12 months free of Xbox Live Gold.

Being an advanced Android phone, OnePlus 5T offers nearly all types of connectivity features including Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, WiFi Direct, DLNA, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0. These are some restrictions that are in place for the OnePlus 5T.
