OnePlus 7T review: Another near perfect phone
OnePlus 7T review: The OnePlus 7T is another testament of the fact that smartphones have hit a sweet spot where it is near perfect in every aspect from processor to the camera and battery life.
OnePlus is a very different company. It follows a different product cycle from others and usually comes out with a flagship phone which is followed up by a T version of the same later in the year. Of late it also has a Pro version of the flagship. This year, it first launched the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro and it is now time for the OnePlus 7T.
The OnePlus 7T has some serious changes, all pertaining to the three core areas of user experience — the processor, battery and, of course, the camera.
The design too is different, significantly from the rear where there is now a round camera module housing three cameras and a flash. Like with the iPhone, the camera module is a distinct identifier for the OnePlus 7T. That differentiated ID always works in favour or a phone.
Though the phone has a matte-frosted glass at the back, it feels more metallic. The glacier blue that we have for review is both stylish and unique.
The display is another area where there are some improvements. Now the 6.5-inch Fluid Amoled display comes with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1000nits brightness. When you use the fingerprint scanner on the display, it lights up like a lighting bold under your fingers and maybe hits this thousands nits making a bit of a spectacle. Also, the life wallpapers also showcase how this display is capable of showing more that bright and vivid colours.
The OnePlus 7T packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. Processing power has never been an issue with any OnePlus phone. It not an issue with the OnePlus 7T either. The phone is fast, responsive and can easily handle all multitasking, high-end videography and multi-tab browsing. With the unique So this means the phone can manage all tasks quite well. In the few days I tested the phone, I never felt it was slowing down or heating up.
