OnePlus 7T Review
The 3-Minute OnePlus 7T Review
Smoother Than We Have Ever Seen
OnePlus has released the 7T this October. Odd as the 7 Pro was released only 6 months ago, but this seems to be OnePlus’s secret sauce as it allows them to capture both markets with the staggered release dates.
The OnePlus 7T is changing the face of phone displays as it has brought out a 90Hz refresh rate with its 6.55-inch HDR10+ fluid AMOLED display. All run with a Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon and 8GB RAM managed by the Oxygen OS 10.0.3 to give you smooth performance and zero lag time.
While the 30W Warp charger 30T charges your device in 30min with constant charge rate but still manage to keep the 3800 mAh battery cool.
Interestingly, the OnePlus has a similar look to the Huawei Mate 30 due to the halo ring around the camera. On that note the back cameras are a trio of 48MP wide angle, 12MP telephoto and 16MP ultrawide with image stabilizing and 16MP Selfie camera.
Features & Design: 4/5 | Performance: 4/5 | Value: 5/5 | Battery Life: 4/5
This device is really good value for money as it offers excellent performance from the chipset and 8GB RAM and 90Hz refresh rate makes for smooth and lag-less gaming. The storage side of things also does not disappoint as it offers 128GB UFS 3.0 storage which is lighting fast. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus offers faster graphics rendering. There is also an improved haptic feedback allowing for a more interesting gameplay.
The other upside are the cameras, they use a setup of triple cameras to give you a wide range of image and video capabilities. The design is very smooth and elegant with curved sides that blend the polished metal frame and the mat glass. This finish gives you a good grip and smoother on-screen touch.
The only complaint that we have, is the very sharp edge around the rear camera bezel however this is fixed with a protective case. The other common issue with OnePlus is the lack of dust and water protection with no IRP rating. The OnePlus 7T has a smaller screen to the OnePlus 7 Pro it also only has HDR 10+ versus the 7 Pro’s QHD+ display which offers better resolution and aspect ratio.
Is it for you?
The OnePlus 7T is more of the everyday business phone vs the 7 Pro which is geared more for gaming. This does not mean that this phone is lacking in any way when it comes to processing power and screen capabilities.
What we like
The wide versatility of the cameras allows for capturing every moment with clarity. The three independent cameras work in harmony for a versatile range of lighting and image conditions. The Selfie camera is back to the notch instead of the pop-up form of the Pro version. Some may like the pop-up camera over the notch, but we feel the notch form is just more functional for the device.
What we don’t like
So, there is a downside with some of the video capabilities compared to other flagship devices. When videoing there is no image stabilization in the ultra-wide mode, so using a manual stabilizing device, would be suggested.
Should you buy it?
The OnePlus 7T offers a lot of value for money and the combination of high range chip sets and high screen refresh rates really makes this phone stand out.
