The device has been featured with extremely eye-catching design and the built quality is just one of the durability assurance. Similarly like iPhone 8 and 10, the screen is made up of premium glass and the whole body is crafted in Aluminium. The all-new One Plus 5T is one of the premium devices in today’s era including iPhone variants, Samsung S series and Note series. So, let’s have a look at the design of the premium gear.
On the back panel, dual 20 MP + 16 MP primary cameras, recording microphone, Finger-Print sensor, dual-tone LED flash along with OP branding are present. In the right-hand corner, there is Power Button present. On the left-hand side, the volume rockers and the silent-vibrate-Ring key are featured (same as iPhone variants). Let’s move under the device. The bottom of the phone shows us 3.5 mm Audio jack along with a Type-C audio jack, Microphone holes, and speaker’s holes. This time we have got nothing on the top. It’s clean and clear on the top same as iPhone latest gears.
One Plus is known to be the yet another fascinating camera phones producer. One of the top features in this gear is its mesmerizing camera combos. The One Plus 5T features 20 MP + 16 MP primary cameras with a larger & faster sensor so that the camera gives a better picturization. Take the right shot, every time. The OnePlus 5 automatically adjusts to your environment, by optimizing your shot quietly for accuracy and clarity. It’s professional quality, automated. The best part of the camera is that it tries to keep the video quality as stable as possible even in low light recording.
A new robust Pro Mode lets you customize settings like ISO, shutter speed, and more. Use the histogram, grid lines, and level features to take better photos. Then capture RAW photos for professional-grade post-production. The device also features a 16 MP front shooter that works extremely well as claimed by the producer.
Disclaimer: MTL is unbiased every time. So now onwards I will be putting up the contrast too under major features when discussed in detail about any device. So, let’s see what’s the contrast here.
Contrast: Though the camera of the device is being claimed as wonderful I along with some other users have found some glitch in the picture quality snapped by OP 5T. The picture sometimes lacks in depth and that also especially in low light.
With 6 inches Optic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, this gadget gives you a flawless show. The staggering High Definition (HD) quality show gives you the best perspective of a few visuals among gadgets within a similar price range. The constancy or let say the resolution of the display is said to be 1080 x 2160 pixels with nearly 401 PPI pixel density. Here One Plus assure us with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection. So, with this assurance, you must have got some rid of damages against drops, spills, splashes etc.
This gear from One Plus is featured with highly demanded and highest rated Chip Set till date. And that is Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 which decently gives the device a lighting fast processing at extreme levels of usage. The device’s performance is going to be lag less as the gear is running on Android OS, v7.1 Nougat. The device’s handling is quite smooth & moreover, it plays even fantastic when the talk is about high-end graphics gaming as this device comes up with Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB/8GB RAM variants. 6GB or 8 GB is not simply a number but it actually defines the level of performance that the device is going to show.
Contrast: No device uses more than 3.25 GB of RAM even at the peak level of usage. There is literally no use of putting 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM and thus exceeding the pricing of the device. It is even more than enough for an ideal laptop too.
