oneplus has been making some of my favorite phones for quite a while, traditionally you get a great combination of good specs and flagship level features at a price they can be hundreds of dollars less than the competition .
that is where the OnePlus 6T comes in, it’s definitely a good phone but it does not revolutionize the formula, if you’re familiar with the oneplus 6 then you know the basics of the OnePlus 6T .
inside you’ll find that same Snapdragon 845 which has been in almost every major flagship of this year and that is paired with either six or eight gigs of RAM and 128 or 256 gigs of storage .
this is as good as it gets right now but it is no longer a unique selling point, previously oneplus is worth some of the cheapest phones with the high-end specs such as the Snapdragon 835 or 845 .
but nowadays you can pick up a Pocophone F1 that is going to be several hundred dollars cheaper than even the oneplus and it has that same spec .
it’s good, it’s great to have, in a phone like this but it is no longer some huge revolutionary feature, it’s just kind of what everyone expects at this point .
one of the most noticeable changes is the notch it is significantly smaller than now I pretty much anything else out right now but it is right alongside the essential phone .
which over a year later actually still has one of these smallest notches that we’ve ever seen, if we take a quick trip from garbage town up the road to notch city we’ll find an interesting evolution of oneplus phones over the last couple years .
so they oneplus 5 was the last phone with the full-size bezels which were significantly shrunk down on the oneplus 5t, come to the oneplus 6 and the notch is in full effect which thankfully is a lot smaller on the oneplus 6T .
it’s also a very slightly larger display at 6.4 inches as opposed to 6.3, and that applies to the entire oneplus 6t, it’s a little bit thicker, it’s a little bit taller and it’s a little bit wider and it is definitely on the the larger side of smartphones .
the display itself is a nice looking all in, in fact not only is it fairly bright, but it is one of the most accurate OLED panels we’ve tried right up there with the iPhone 10s .
you’ll also find something pretty rare and in display fingerprint sensor, you know I’ll go on are the days of having a fingerprint sensor on the back or on the home button instead it’s actually inside the glass .
it properly works too, so this little green icon right here if I put my thumb on it it will immediately scan my fingerprint, now to be fair this is not a perfect setup .
it does seem to be a little bit slower than a traditional fingerprint sensor I did notice that it is a little bit more prone to being slowed down or tripped up if you have any kind of dirt or dust on the screen, but generally speaking it does work well .
its quick its reasonably accurate but it is nowhere near secure to me is just using that fingerprint sensor, inside you will find an upgraded battery, before we had a 3300 milliamp hours so whereas this year we’ve gone out to 3700 milliamp hours .
now I haven’t spent enough time to really give it a full run-through but based on at least early impressions it’s pretty easy to make it through a full day of use with the OnePlus 6T .
unsurprisingly oneplus is stuck with their very stock looking oxygen OS software which is based on the latest version of Android 9pi, now the good thing is you have a lot of nice small customizations it doesn’t totally overhaul the look .
for example the alert slider we all know and love is still here to allow you to easily mute the phone, I really don’t understand why lots and lots of other people having to stolen this it’s just super useful .
what you won’t find is a significantly improved camera, no it is slightly better, so it’s mostly in the processing and the software side specifically with portrait mode it’s a little bit better at cutting things out of the background and there is an improved night shot mode which will get you a little bit of better low-light performance .
but generally speaking this is decent but nowhere near as good as the pixels and the galaxies of the world .
the speaker sounds decent but importantly it’s just that a single speaker, it’s 2018 and basically all other flagships have switched over to a stereo setup, which not only sounds a lot better but importantly isn’t easily covered I mean all these do you really put a single finger over the speaker and it totally closed the volume .
personally I wouldn’t mind a bigger notch if I meant that I did get those stereo speakers audio quality on a phone is really important to me .
speaking of the OnePlus 6T finally drops the headphone jack, now this isn’t exactly a huge surprise but it is they downgrade over the one plus 6 .
to be fair you do get a USBC headphone dongle on the box and the battery is slightly larger because of this but rest in peace sweet Jack .
,we also still don’t have any official water resistane, now you would think that by removing the headphone jack that would make it a little bit easier to water seal this guy up, but nope it’s still completely not okay to put this near even a single drop of water or else your warranty stickers will go screaming in agony .
speaking of what we do still have a glass back the 16 still completely omits any kind of wireless charging, this is a weird choice usually when you go from metal the glass when the main reasons is to get you a little bit of an easier target for stuff like say I don’t know .
wireless charging something again is on almost all 2018 flagships and yet it is nowhere to be found on the OnePlus 6T, the OnePlus 6T is a terrific phone and yet it’s not really much of an upgrade over the OnePlus 6, in a world where the Google pixel 3 is a true flagship it’s really hard to call this a flagship killer, it’s a great mid-range phone but that’s ok .
