Recently, the OnePlus 3T was revealed, and the engineers declared that they have managed to fix some major issues on the previous model. You will receive a far better performance with an improved battery life and a new storage option. All of these come with a reasonable price tag for the end consumers.
The OnePlus 3T 64 GB model starts at $439, and it used to cost $399 before the update. If you are a person who likes to take more photos, then you can go with the 128GB storage option, which will cost you around $479.
The model was released in the United States on November 22, while European consumers had to wait six more days until the 28th.
The design is completely the same as OnePlus 3, including weight and size. It features a full-metal design, and it comes in a new soft gold color, which looks just astonishing. Moreover, it has a mute button, which is something new for this brand.
The front offers a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display and a stylish fingerprint button below the screen. It takes only three seconds to unlock you phone, which is much faster than with the previous model.
With the AMOLED Display, the phone was kept as slim as possible, while maintaining the same fantastic colors.
On the left side of the phone, you will find the notification slider and volume rocker. With the notification slider, you can set priority notifications or silent all. It is really something that the fans of the brand appreciate.
On the right side is the lock/power key, similar to the iPhone, and right below it is the SIM tray, which can handle up to two cards. The bottom consists of a headphone jack, speakers, and the widely used USB-C port. It looks like that OnePlus aren’t ready to take the required step and ditch the 3.5mm jack. Users reveal that the design is quite flawless and the phone fits perfectly in the palm, making it easier to use.
The OnePlus 3T has improved its rear camera to 16MP, and it now offers some great features such as AutoFocus, Dynamic De-noise, HDR & Phase Detection, which make the pictures quite amazing.
The front camera isn’t bad at all with its 8MP, which shoot simply great selfies.
The owners of OnePlus put all their efforts to make the new 3T model one of their most powerful ones with a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 6GB of RAM. This makes the phone perfect for multitasking, photo editing, and gaming.
Company representatives claim that the third-generation of their phone provides a 35% performance increase and 40% graphic boost.
The new model of the company comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, which is smaller than the predecessors and it isn’t enough to get you through the day if you are an active phone user.
OnePlus have revealed its exclusive product Dash Charge, which allows you to charge your phone up to 60% in thirty minutes. Moreover, the engineers have decided to shift the main power regulator to the plug block to reduce the amount of heat generated through the process.
What surprises me is that the Chinese startup prefers to listen to their users and they have put a lot of efforts to eliminate the issues within the previous model.
A huge setback for many users is the lack of a microSD slot for the individuals who wish to upgrade their memory. We also believe that the Chinese owners should consider improving their battery, or else you have to bring your USB and Dash Charger with you everywhere.
All in all, it’s an excellent smartphone sold at a reasonable price, which provides all the required features for the end consumers. If you are looking for an affordable phone, which offers fantastic camera and excellent performance, then this is your perfect choice.
