OnePlus 5T unboxing

In an era when these ultra-premium smartphones are increasingly becoming the new norm for flagships, the OnePlus 5T is a delightful and defiant offering that provides for the comforts we crave in these ultra-premium devices, but without the immense cost. With a cool starting price of $500 outright for the base version, it absolutely undercuts the majority of the competition in the space. It’s a bold strategy to say the least, however, we’re more eager to see the level of consumer interest in it.

We just got a final production model, so a proper unboxing video is ready …


Results: LG V30 wins popularity contest vs OnePlus 5T

The OnePlus 5T is here and is a part of the 18:9 flagship flock. 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.

Unlike the G6 before it, the LG V30 really seems to have made an impact — fans love it for its super-compact footprint, light weight, …

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 …

OnePlus 5 confirmed to be discontinued once it's sold out

OnePlus 5T is certainly one of the hottest devices in the smartphone industry these days. A flagship that offers powerful specs at almost half the price of an iPhone X is something that everyone looking for a top-of-the-line smartphone should consider.

However, the OnePlus 5T is not a major upgrade over the OnePlus 5. With the exception of the display and camera, these phones are almost the same. That’s what makes OnePlus’ decision to phase out the OnePlus 5 perfectly justifiable.

OnePlus India’s General Manager Vikas Aggarwal confirmed that the OnePlus 5 …

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”. Other changes include a new secondary camera module — the telephoto lens is gone and we now have a camera that specializes in low light shooting —, a new placement for the fingerprint scanner, face unlock, and… well that’s it.

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 3 and 3T now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

The moment you’ve all been waiting for has finally come, as OnePlus announced the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update is now available for two of its popular flagship: OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Two months ago OnePlus released a beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3, but the update was available to a limited number of users. However, the company promised to make the update available to everyone by the end of the year.
