OnePlus 5T - Flagship features without digging a big hole in the pocket
By Vinay Sonion
ONEPLUS 5T REVIEW? I was using Iphone 5s for almost 4 years(After 2 months it would have been 4th year anniversary for 5s).? Iphone 5s served its purpose, but after heavy usage, body damage and battery problems it died in December, 2017.? I was looking for a new Smartphone. My first choice was Iphone 8 , cause I am familiar to iOS and it was a best device offered by Apple after Iphone X. But price of Iphone 8 64 GB was in the range of 55K – 60K. Big thing to take into consideration that design is similar to its predecessor (only difference was glass back to enable wireless charging) and features wise bit up gradation from predecessor.? Now quest was begin to find a device which is value for its price.? Started watching YouTube videos of tech bloggers. They were all praising OnePlus 5T for features it is providing and the price label.? I was bit sceptical about android operating system. Heard various users saying about their devices that they hang, they get slow down after a time, late software and security updates. It was confusing to pick a device.? Best device in android was Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. These devices were facing criticism for their display and other software related problems. The price of these devices also starts from 50k. I could not take a risk to buy a device which is facing all these problems.? Finally after calculating all the scenarios decided to order OnePlus 5T – 8 GB RAM – 128 GB storage on 4th December, 2017.? Device arrived on 6th December 2017.BOX CONTAINED:1. OnePlus 5t2. Dash charge adapter3. USB type-C cable4. One transparent case5. Information and start up guide6. Some OnePlus stickersFIRST HAND EXPERIENCE:? Big 6.01 inch AMOLED Display with 80.5 percent screen to body ratio? Slick metallic design around back and sides? Powered by 2.45 GHZ octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor? Tactile buttons? Booted up the device? Running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat? Set up all the information and face unlock? Clicked few pictures? Played a YouTube video to check display and sound quality? Downloaded all the appsFAST FORWARD TO 6 MONTHS: After using the device for six months I can talk about the device adequately.1. SOFTWARE:? Device is running on Android 8.1 Oreo, Oxygen OS 5.1.2 and security patch level May 1, 2018.? In this department OnePlus was consistent and provided regular updates.? RAM optimization is so good that if you leave an app in certain condition comeback to that app after some time you will notice that it is same as you left.? Oxygen Os provides some nifty features such as night mode, reading mode, gaming mode, battery saver, parallel apps, app locker etc. These all things come in handy and I use them most of the time.? OnePlus provided navigation gestures kind of like Iphone X. After enabling it I don’t like to go to navigation buttons. I am quite used to it now.? Due to Software Optimization and top of the line processor of 2017- Snapdragon 835 (provided by Qualcomm) battery can last a whole day with moderate to heavy usage.2. CAMERA PERFORMANCE:? Device has rear dual cameras, one is 16MP with aperture f/1.7 and another one is 20 MP with aperture f/1.7.? Rear camera does a good job in good lighting conditions. HDR picks up long range of colours and details in the picture. Portrait mode is hit and a miss. Sometimes you get a portrait with good edge detections and sometimes edges are not defined enough. 20 MP lens is for low light conditions but pictures are okay-ish in low light conditions.? For video capturing it offers 4k, 1080P at 60FPS, 1080P and & 720P resolutions. There is no OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) only EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization). EIS does a good job but as there is no OIS when you move the camera in 4k you will observe some frames are lagging. So I like to shoot videos at 1080P with 60 FPS resolution.? Pro mode offers you control on ISO, shutter speed, focus and white balance. You can also take pictures in RAW format.? Slow motion is only available in 720P. So cannot take high quality slo-mo video.? Time lapse in available in both 1080P and 720P.? Now let’s talk about front camera. Front camera is 16 MP with f/2.0 aperture. It can take good selfies but angle is not wide enough so you have to stretch your hands to capture all the people into frame. It has beauty mode which enhances your facial features to take a good selfie but i find it bit cartoon- y. So beauty mode is always turned off in my device. Front camera can capture videos in 1080P & 720P resolutions. EIS helps to stabilize the video but quality of front camera is good not great.3. DISPLAY:? 5T has 6.01 inches Optic AMOLED 18:9 display. Screen to body ratio is 80.5 percent. From my time spend with device I found display is crisp and accurate. There is no blue color shift issue on tilting. Display is big enough to enjoy video content and read books.? It has various screen calibration such as Default, sRGB, DCI-P3, Adaptive mode, Custom Colour. You can calibrate screen as per your preference. My screen calibration is DCI-P3 because i feel colours are punchy and have a good contrast in this mode.? There is ambient display option which lets you know of the notifications and time as you lift the device without unlocking, which is quite handy in my opinion.4. FACE UNLOCK & FINGER PRINT SCANNER:? Face unlock uses selfie camera to do a 2D scan of your face and store it. Whenever you want to unlock your device you just need to look at it.? Face unlock is really fast, OnePlus said that they clocked the face unlock, it took only 0.07 seconds to scan and unlock (not fast than fingerprint scanner). It is very much accurate too. I think 8/10 times it let me unlock my device without putting a finger on scanner or typing password/passcode.? Face unlock works in low light too. You need to enable Face Unlock assistive lighting from settings. It lights up your display so selfie camera can see your face in low light and recognizes you.? Fingerprint scanner is located ergonomically just above middle. It is distinguish from back.? Fingerprint scanner is faster than face unlock, OnePlus claims that fingerprint scanner only take 0.02 seconds to scan and unlock. It is more accurate. Mostly it works for me. I haven’t had any problem unlocking device using fingerprint scanner.? Fingerprint scanner also support some gestures like 1) if you swipe downward it pull down notification tray 2) While clicking pictures you can take photos by only holding finger on fingerprint scanner for few seconds.5. BATTERY & DASH CHARGER:? OnePlus 5T comes with 3300 mAh battery which is not great in number but due to software optimization and full HD resolution display, the device can last a whole day with heavy to moderate usage.? Device comes with a 5 Volt and 4 Ampere power brick with a USB type-C cable. OnePlus call this mechanism a Dash Charger.? OnePlus claims that It can charge your device from 0% to 63% in just 30 minuites.? Dash Charger comes in handy when you have less time to charge and head to somewhere.? I don’t charge my device more than an hour. In an hour battery is upto 80-85 % which kind of last me whole day with heavy to moderate usage.6. ALERT SLIDER:? Alert slider is very handy when you instantly want to turn your device to Silent, Do not disturb and Ring.? It is textured button so you can identify it easily.? Iphone has similar thing which is mute switch. You can only mute your device in it.7. OTHERS:? OnePlus 5T comes with a downward firing mono-speaker which can turn pretty loud. But you can block it with your palm while playing a game or watching a video.? Notification light is a good thing I have noticed in Android. If your device is in silent you can notice from blinking notification light that you have notifications. You can also assign a color to a certain app’s notifications.? Call quality have been good but few times I had this problem- when I am talking on a call suddenly sound from other person get muted, I have to disconnect and call again.? Signal reception is good and LTE speeds are also up to the mark.COCNCLUSION: You get a device which is leveling to flagship ones but without digging a big hole in your pocket.

This thing is a beast at any point!!
By Akshay Mohandason
You can't get more from this price range.I was a well satisfied member of Oneplus family from oneplus 3 to Oneplus 5. This phone I've purchased for my brother and I was using it for a month before giving it to him so that I can tell more about the phone. As I told you I was a oneplus 5 user I am very satisfied with the rear finger print scanner and the massive 6.01 inch display. The display is gorgeous, even you can compare it with some high end panels of Samsung's galaxy flagships. And with snapdragon 835 this thing flies. The camera in low light have been significantly improved from the one plus 5 and more appreciable price range which no other competitors could even get closer. The dash charging is a magic that the phone gets charged within fraction of time and the screen on time is superb. Ive got about more than 8 hr screen on time with data and wifi ON and it never gies below 5 with any sort of hard usage. Don't think whether it will get slow in time, you'll be terribly wrong, with even 6 or 8 gigs of ram this thing is a beast. Even my oneplus 3 didn't get lag till date which is almost 2 and half year old then how could this beast?
Poor man's iphone
By Bharath Ron
I have been loving the device each year and without any doubt, I can claim it to be the best premium smartphone in its range. The latest entrant OP 6 is a bit improved version but stills needs a work on its notch. Waiting for the day, it gets the notch removed soon for a full end to end display.The best thing about this phone is that it's price range does not change drastically and the features it offers in its orice range is worth every penny you put in.The camera built in is good and is over hyped for the portrait mode which surely needs an improvement from dslr user's preserpective. This is because the bokeh effect they are claiming about is not indeed the natural one. Its just a workaround. Otherwise, the colors are pure and virbant. Eith minor tweaks, you can get a sturdy camera.The sound is quite moderate but clear. As we know, the speakers wont be loud in premium flagships.The battery is very good but, I crave for more with every release. The build quality is certainly the best selling point. The have such a premium finish, that you 'll die fir the looks.I am certainly an anti-apple guy who knows the iphone is quality but will always fall for one plus for its beast like features at 1/4 the cost of an high end iphone.Go for the new OP 6 or wait for 6+ , the device never disappointsPlease like this review if it was helpful and give it a thumbsup.I like to give honest feedback as I expect one such when buying online.
The 5T is a solidly built phone. It has a premium finish to it. The processor on par with the 6GB RAM crushes anything the phone has to handle, so fragmentation and lag is out of the picture. The alert slider is a nice touch i must say. I haven't seen this feature in any other phones except for Apple and OnePlus. Updates are regular, comparing to other android devices. The front camera is good but the back dual lenses aren't exceptional, they're just average.For the price, we can't really complain. The phone has a lot of features we can mod. The battery life is amazing, Easily lasts a day/day and a half.The only negative thing that bothers me about this phone is that, it's slippery and it is not gripping. You can easily drop your phone.This shouldn't be the case. A phone should always, be able to, be held by the user without the frequent thought of it falling or not.
