OnePlus 7T Review

The OnePlus 7T is the newest device from OnePlus. Priced at only $600, this smartphone model confidently outperforms more expensive Android device competitors. It sports a 6.55-inch AMOLED Full HD display with 90Hz refresh rate, while many flagship Android devices still use 60Hz display. It means, the display of OnePlus 7T refreshes 90 times each second, ensuring smooth visuals when showing fast paced videos and 3D rendering. The display also has embedded fingerprint scanner for quick authorization. For extra performance kick, the OnePlus 7T uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. It offers slight improvement in performance compared to regular Snapdragon 855, but ensures blazing fast operations when running apps and games.

It has 8GB of RAM, which is nothing unusual for today’s standard, but it should be more than enough for any app. Another important feature is the UFS 3.0 storage standard, which makes it easier to read and write big files. Everything should load up much faster. The internal storage itself is plentiful at 128GB, realistically giving you around 100GB of free space. In some countries, you could also get 256GB of internal storage. It’s a bit unfortunate that there’s no microSD card slot, but the basic model already has ample storage space for average users. The OnePlus 7T is one of the first devices that come with the new Android 10 OS out of the box.

The OnePlus 7T has decent camera, but it doesn’t offer any breakthrough. The triple-lens arrangement of OnePlus 7T is consisted of 48Mp primary camera, 12Mp telephoto camera with 2x zoon and 16Mp ultra-wide angle camera. To the trained eyes, colors produced by the camera appear rather bleak. At low light conditions, results are sufficiently decent, but there’s no real night mode, when it is dark. Users get adequate 4k video recording at 60fps and with stabilization. However, the ultra-wide angle camera is only usable for still photos, not video recording. There’s nothing special with battery life. For web browsing, the OnePlus 7T could last for nearly ten hours, while Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ gives you 11 hours and iPhone 11 offers 11 hours 40 minutes. But, the OnePlus 7T comes with the built-in fast charging technology called Warp charge. In just 20 minutes, you could charge 7T to 50 percent battery charge.

Overall, at $600, the OnePlus 7T is a great value for the money with 90Hz AMOLED display, fast Snapdragon 855+ processor, fast charging, huge internal storage options and Android 10 on board. But, the camera quality is either decent or somewhat mediocre and there’s no ultra wide option for video.
