OnePlus 5T vs. Samsung Galaxy Note8 - The flagship killer strikes again

18 November, 2017, 00:56 | Author: Jan Cross
  • Launch of OnePlus 5T. What Features are we expecting ?

OnePlus 5T still misses out of waterproofing, wireless charging and memory expansion, but that is probably for the next time. This is one of the primary changes that we see on the OnePlus 5T from the OnePlus 5.

OnePlus has built quite a reputation for offering flagship spec at "budget" prices (by which we mean: more affordable than the premium handsets from the likes of Apple, Samsung, Sony and LG).

Under the hood of the OnePlus 5T you'll find Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, naturally, paired with an Adreno 540 GPU, 8GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB built-in storage. Like Apple's system, face unlocking on the OnePlus 5T can be used to unlock the phone and it works in 0.4 seconds according to OnePlus, so it's slower than the 0.2 seconds the fingerprint reader takes. On the back, it has the same aluminum cover, however, this time around, the fingerprint sensor is on the back cover too, as it has no room on the front.

These are the best OnePlus 5T cases to protect your phone and keep it looking new. The OnePlus 5 had stellar results (9 hours, 15 minutes of LTE video streaming) with the same-size battery.

The OnePlus 5T will launch at the same price point as its predecessor in India.

Its much costlier counterpart, the iPhone X, on the other hand, sports a height of 144mm, is 71mm wide.

He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did". In the first of three successive tweets Sunday morning, Trump hit back at his critics.


VerdictDespite the glaring price difference, the OnePlus 5T and iPhone X are fairly evenly matched on paper.

OnePlus has already rolled out the Android 8.0 Oreo-based Oxygen OS Open Beta update for the Oneplus 3 and Oneplus 3T users. However, low light conditions may make the Face ID a drag as compared to finger print scanners, but that nowhere takes away from the fact that Face ID is the future in terms of technology.

In lighting below 10 lux, the OnePlus 5T will switch to the secondary camera, which can also combine four pixels into one to produce cleaner images in low light.

In comparison, the iPhone X also offers a dual camera set-up which features optical zoom.

OnePlus has also introduced its own version of facial recognition using the front-facing selfie camera to make unlocking the device while on a desk a little more convenient, trading a certain level of security in the process.

The battery capacity is kept the same at 3300 mAh and there is the Dash Charge support that gives about a day's usage with just 30 minutes charge.
