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 …
