Just like the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T is powered by a 2.45GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with Adreno 540 GPU. In the end, X iPhone a little faster coped with all tasks.

But put simply, Project Treble is a Google driven initiative which will arrive aboard Android Oreo; it's a bid to counter Android's age-old problem of fragmentation and slow updates to the latest software going forward.

The initial success of the iPhone X was deceptive, because the next phase of the Chinese OnePlus 5T looked better due to the increased amount of RAM.

Although OnePlus is smart to adopt 2017 flagship-like features on the OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 5 is becoming more obsolete as a result, looking more like a phone from 2016 instead.


OnePlus joins the bandwagon of facial unlocking with this device. With all the upgrades that the company has already introduced on the 5T, it's really hard to imagine what the 6T would be able to offer differently from the OnePlus 6 at this point in time. According to OnePlus, the handset's camera is designed in a manner so as to deliver quality performance especially in low-light settings. While we, of course, don't have any specific numbers on how well the phone has sold, knowing it's the fastest selling OnePlus device is an impressive feat. Although OnePlus 5T comes with a face recognition tech, many don't find it secure enough as reports have been floating around that the tech can be fooled using a mere print of the face.

If you check the video, the teardown does show that OnePlus may have been thinking of waterproofing ─ but it was not implemented. This leads to easier and faster customisation of Android by OEMs. Currently, the smartphone is out-of-stock on both the platforms.

Those who plan to buy the smartphone via Amazon India during the next sale can take advantage of various offers, which include Rs 1,500 off if the purchase is made using HDFC credit and debit card.
