OnePlus 5T or LG V30: which one do you like better?

So, the OnePlus 5T is here and we bid it welcome to the world of 18:9 flagships. It packs all the cutting-edge hardware you’d expect and still maintains a rather affordable starting price — especially when we consider the competition — at $499.

But one can argue that the 5T is walking a path that has already been beaten by other outstanding handsets this year — the Galaxy S8+, the LG V30 come to mind when looking at its new all-screen front.

LG has had a shaky track record with its phones over the past couple of years. But the V30 seems to be a really, really …


Results: do you like the OnePlus 5T?

With the new “flagship killer” hitting the ground running, we thought we’d ask you what you think of it. It’s pretty much a OnePlus 5 with a changed-up secondary camera and a screen that has been given the stretch. On the inside, it’s still the same stuff — Snapdragon 835, 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB or 128 GB of storage, you know the drill.

So, it’s not an extreme upgrade over the OnePlus 5, sans that display ratio change. Well, the price also got a slight bump up to $499. But does that change the 5T’s desirability levels? We thought we’d ask you. Check out the …

PSA: OnePlus 5T won't work on Verizon and Sprint


The OnePlus 5T is launching in the US and other
markets tomorrow, November 21, less than a week after being officially
announced. 
If you’re planning to buy the smartphone and use it in the US, you have to know that it won’t work on two
of the largest carriers: Verizon and Sprint. More exactly, the phone is compatible with some
of Verizon’s and Sprint’s LTE bands, but that’s not enough. As OnePlus puts it:
“Even if a device supports some or all of the required frequencies for a
carrier, it will not be able to connect unless the device is approved for the
network.”

 

Of course, …

The OnePlus 5T: do you like it?

So, the OnePlus 5T was announced just last week. Stretching out its display to an 18:9 ratio and keeping its bezels thin, the new “flagship killer” is steadily headed into the new era of “all-screen smartphones”.

There hasn’t been any significant leap in hardware over the past 6 months, so what the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T both pack is pretty …

OnePlus 5T: all the official images

Sandblasted to oblivion, and with three 14 microns coatings applied to get the Midnight Black color, for instance, the new OnePlus 5T is certainly a looker. A fingerprint-prone layer is finally applied to prevent smudging, and the whole thing is made of aluminum alloy, so it won’t be as fragile as those glass-and-metal flagships of late. 
No matter what you think about OnePlus, the current design is shaping up to be both durable, practical, and pleasing to the eye, what with the 80%+ screen-to-body ratio, rear ceramic finger scanner, …
