OnePlus 6T hands-on review: optimization for a small surcharge

OnePlus 6T hands-on review: optimization for a small surcharge

Another new mode found in the OnePlus 6T is Studio Lighting Mode which when the smartphone detects a face on-camera, it will tweak the lighting to improve the portraits.

There's one hardware regression we need to get out of the way - the already acknowledged removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Does OnePlus 6T work with Verizon?

The OnePlus 6T is more about offering a visual update over the OnePlus 6.

Having a high-quality, low-priced phone like the 6T sold by T-Mobile is going to help win over customers from other carriers who may not know OnePlus, but may have seen buying a new phone as a barrier to switching carriers, he added.

The OnePlus 6T's price in India starts at Rs 37,999 for the base model that comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

An initial hearing is set Monday afternoon in Florida federal court for 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc , who faces five federal charges. Federal prosecutors want no bail for a man accused of sending pipe bombs to prominent Democrats around the country.

Like the OnePlus 6, the 6T features Qualcomm's current flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 845, and up to 8GB of RAM.

"It was not high on our agenda to be first with these technologies", a OnePlus spokesperson told Buzz.ie in a pre-briefing last week.

For the first time on a OnePlus smartphone, the 6T comes with an optical under-display fingerprint sensor. Another highlight upfront is an in-display fingerprint sensor, which OnePlus calls "Screen Unlock". With curved edges, both the devices are easy to hold and features similar design except for the fingerprint sensor which has been moved from the back on to the display. OnePlus says the new phone is water-resistant, too. As for the screen itself, it has a 2340x1080 resolution and as mentioned, measures 6.41-inch (slightly bigger than the Huawei Mate20 Pro and much bigger than the Apple iPhone XS). Other features on the phone include Full Screen Gestures 2.0 for smoother navigation, bottom facing speakers with Dirac Power Sound, Lift Up Display. However, the rear camera sensor remains the same as that of its predecessor. The small footprint increases the screen area on each side. Plus, the chin has been reduced on the OnePlus 6T and the top notch is tiny in comparison to other premium smartphones on the market. The 6T houses a 3,700mAh battery which is 400mAh more than the OnePlus 6 and will deliver 23 per cent better battery life, OnePlus claims.

This new tech means the handset is slightly thicker and heavier than the OnePlus 6, but otherwise, the design remains largely unchanged; the 6T comes crafted nearly entirely from glass and it will be available in Mirror Black and Midnight Black colour options.

Buy Oneplus 6T or wait for OnePlus 7?

However, OnePlus also insisted the new mode is arriving for the OnePlus 6, giving owners of the device a major upgrade. The idea being that shooting in Nightscape will improve clarity of shots, produce less noise, more accurate colour reproduction and better dynamic range.
