Reasons to Buy and Not to Buy OnePlus 5T Smartphone

OnePlus revealed its latest flagship named as OnePlus 5T in Australia a year back in 2017. The OnePlus 5T is a revamped version of OnePlus 5 and arrives with the exact same price as its predecessor. Since this sounds like an awesome deal at this price, we come up with a major reason to buy and not to buy OnePlus 5T. The phone is loaded with a modern display, and improved camera configuration, we estimate whether OnePlus 5T has that “OnePlus” aspect or not.

Reasons to Buy OnePlus 5T

  • Design

In terms of design, OnePlus 5T comes with the same Anodized Aluminum chassis as its predecessor. It looks pretty premium and offers fewer bezels and more screen. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back of the phone and is easily accessible. Moreover, OnePlus 5T is in the same size as that of OnePlus 5.

  • Display

Another reason you should go for OnePlus 5T is its display. The phone sports am 18:9 aspect ratio which puts OnePlus 5T at par with the latest flagships. There is a Full HD+ Optic AMOLED panel that stretches edge-to-edge in a design with minimal bezels.

  • Improved Camera

However, the OnePlus 5T camera isn’t a major update, but you will see a f/1.7 aperture. Whereas the sensors remain the same in the 16MP + 20MP setup. The OnePlus 5T is now optimized for low-lit and portrait photography. Considering every update count, a camera can only be taken as a polished over its predecessor.

  • Competitive Pricing

The OnePlus 5T price in Australia is the same as that of OnePlus 5. Perhaps it’s one of the biggest reasons you should get your hands on one. The OnePlus 5T costs you around AU$640 – this is one of the best value-for-money phones around.

Reasons Not to Buy OnePlus 5T

  • Camera Lacks OIS

Starting from the camera, OnePlus 5T lacks the optical image stabilization. The phone only relies on a brushed-up EIS but doesn’t boast OIS. However, we can safely say that OIS is a far better way to get stable videos.

  • Display

Above, we have mentioned that the display is one major reason to buy, but there is also a downside to it. A predecessor “OnePlus 5” offers sports a Full HD+ display which doesn’t compete Quad HD+ resolution offered by the other brands. However, OnePlus 5T offers an exquisite display, but it could have added a Quad HD Panel to enhance its viewing experience.

  • No Water Resistance

The OnePlus 5 was missing water and dust resistance. So, we were hopeful to see at least an IP67 water resistance, but seems like OnePlus didn’t pay much attention to that yet. The phone still remains disposed to water and dust damage with no water resistance certification to save it.

  • No Oreo OS

The OnePlus 5T comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat with OxygenOS on top, the software experience remains the same as of that the OnePlus 5. The software enhancements for OnePlus 5T will also be there for OnePlus 5 at the same time.
