The second aspect of the OnePlus 5T that is different from its predecessor is the camera. Now with the increase in screen size and the added pixels, the OnePlus 5T comes with three cameras. The front camera is unchanged with the 5T packing the same 16-megapixel front camera. And another 16-megapixel primary shooter at the back but this one comes with a full aperture. The secondary camera at the end is a new 20-megapixel camera with a different aperture lens. f/1.7 aperture lens to be precise. So the camera is a minor upgrade over the previous phone's camera but a definite improvement. The 5T comes with Android 7.1 although it should have come running Android Oreo right from the get-go, so that is another factor that goes against the 5T. It is powered by a non-removable 3300mAh battery which can last the day rather quickly. It also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint reader as well as Corning Gorilla Glass 5 display case, so your screen is as hard as a rock, well not really but that is pretty sturdy. The rest of the specs are somewhat generic, it comes with dual Sim capability and accepts nano Sim. Connectivity options on the OnePlus 5T include WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, 3G and 4G. The onboard sensors on the 5T include compass magnetometer, accelerometer, ambient light sensor and gyroscope.
So the OnePlus 5T is pretty much the same as the OnePlus 5, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing though because the OnePlus 5 is also still a very new phone and one of the best flagship phones out there. The people who want a minor upgrade over that can go for the more modern OnePlus 5T. That being said. However, the 5T does have its drawbacks, as pointed earlier launching at this time the 5T should have come with Android Oreo from the start but instead, people using the 5T will have to wait months for the update that does not work in favour of the phone. The other significant negative aspect of the phone is that it does not come with a MicroSD slot, so the memory isn’t expandable. 128GB is all you get. Now that is a lot, but a lot of people would prefer the option of expandable memory. The other thing that would bug people would be no stereo speakers but that is something most people would be willing to gloss over, and the camera could have been better. Overall the OnePlus 5T looks like an excellent value for money Flagship phone, and it is safe to say that OnePlus have got another hit when it comes to the OnePlus 5T. We would recommend getting it as a beautiful Christmas gift for you.
