For the past few years, OnePlus has focused on delivering the best smartphone experience possible for their userbase. Their marketing motto Never Settle emphasizes on aiming and challenging for the best. We’re not quite sure about whether their mobile handsets still qualify for the flagship-killer throne, but things definitely look exciting from a technological point-of-view.
Design and Display
Weighing 188g, OnePlus 8T feels surprisingly light as compared to flagship devices sporting a similar spec sheet. The screen is a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED unit fresh out of the box with the display set at a 120Hz refresh rate by default. The resolution stands at 2400 x 1080 pixels with 402ppi density.
It’s a flat finish on this thing. The elliptical-square camera cutout at the back fairly compliments the glassy finish that has a premium feel to it. Sporting a sturdy dimensionality and unique visual appeal, OnePlus 8T comes in Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver colors.
Performance and Hardware
OnePlus 8T packs 8GB/12GB RAM with UFS 3.1 128GB/256GB storage variants. Both modules sport an SDM 865 chipset with a 5G Qualcomm modem collab. There’s a standard Type-C support, Dual SIM slot and speaker function in the bottom belly, as usual. The audio module is a Dolby Atmos stereo with noise cancellation.
Gaming looks top-notch, as you’d expect from a OnePlus flagship. You won’t find any problems here; look out for some power management issues.
Side Note: The in-screen fingerprint scanner is lightning fast!
OnePlus 8T sports a 4500mAh battery and there’s a 65W Warp Charger included inside the standard OnePlus Box. AS advertised, the Warp Charger is a junkie for W-steroids – it charges all compatible OnePlus devices from 0-100% within 45 minutes!
If you’re in it for a fancy charging animation, you won’t be disappointed.
Starting from the back – the rear quad camera bump has a 48MP main camera with OIS, EIS and 1.7 aperture. Then there’s the 16MP ultrawide and a 5MP+5MP pairing of macro and depth sensors.
The front camera cutout is a 16MP HDR sensor with [email protected] video recording capability.
Overall, the camera setups look good. The main camera setup supports 4K video recording at a standard 60fps, and the results are top-notch.
Snapdragon, 5G, refresh rate, 65W Warp Charging; the all new OnePlus 8T is a full package for everyone. The device is a little smaller in size than the previous OnePlus 8 Pro variant, but that won’t matter. It’s a $900 smartphone with all qualities of a formidable flagship. GO for it!
