Your wait finally ends. Here is the first review of the One Plus 5T. The phone looks solid right from the start. And it has got a lot of new exciting features. So without further adieu let’s dive right into the top 5 features of the new One Plus 5T.
Top 5 features of the One Plus 5T :
The Display –
The One Plus 5T is launched with a 6.01″ 1080p AMOLED display with a pixel density of 401ppi. The screen is protected by a 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The side bezels are slimmer than the One Plus 5 and the top and bottom bezels are also cut down like most other flagship phones of 2017. The screen to body ratio is around 80%.
The Design –
The design is same as its predecessor the One Plus 5. The buttons are crisp, clicky and tactile. The fingerprint sensor is again placed at the back which is the best position for that sensor according to me. I don’t actually like the fingerprint sensor at the front since it feels a little risky to unlock the phone because of its large size. It might not be an issue with you but its something which I don’t like personally.
The Camera –
So the camera is the one that has undergone a little tweak. The back camera is provided with two shooters. One is the 16 MP 27mm – f/1.7 which is the primary lens and the second one is the 20 MP 27mm – f/1.7 low-light shooter. Portrait Mode is still available but it now makes use of a software like the Pixel 2 to create a blur around the subject. One Plus explained that the phone is provided with such a technology such that it changes the camera to the secondary 20 MP camera under conditions below 10 lux of light. It also has Intelligent Pixel Technolgy which merges 4 pixels into 1 in low light to reduce noise and enhance clarity. It can also record videos at 4k 30fps.
Facial Recognition –
Moving on to the new addition. The One Plus 5T is provided with a Facial Recognition. And it’s insanely fast. It’s much faster than the iPhone X. It unlocks almost instantly as you look at your phone and if you are already looking at your phone and press the lock button it directly goes into the home screen. There’s no lock screen coming up in between. In terms of security, it’s still a little doubt whether it will provide that level of security. But as a Secondary unlock option it’s pretty fast and too good.
The Stuff that didn’t change –
The headphone jack is still intact. The Alert Slider is also present. One Plus users will know about this feature as they have already used it. The phone still runs on the Oxygen OS and is provided with Android 7.1.1. It comes with the same processor as the One Plus 5 – the Snapdragon 835 2.45 GHz octa-core processor. Dash charge is also there. So you get a day’s charge in around 30 mins of charge.
In the box –
You get a charger, a USB type-C cable, sim ejector tool, sim tray and the instruction manual.
About the phone –
The phone has the same specifications as the One Plus 5. One Plus has made it clear that the price of the 5T will be same as the One Plus 5 which is a big yay! The phone will be launched on 21st November on Amazon.
