PROS
  • The OnePlus 5T has a bigger screen and its camera takes better low-light photos than the 5. It's few software tweaks are useful in small ways.
CONS
  • The phone's face unlock doesn't authorize payments and its dual camera's digital rather than telephoto zoom is a step back. There's no expandable storage, and it's not rated for water resistance.

    My god what a beautiful piece of hardware. The phone is FAST. Faster than any mobile device you’ve ever owned. The fingerprint reader is the fastest in the industry. The facial recognition is accurate and lightning fast. Dash charging is AMAZING (30 minutes for a charge that lasts me well over 20 hours).The price is high, don’t get me wrong. But you’re buying a phone that’s on-par-with if not better-than the iPhone x, the Galaxy line, the Google Pixels, and every other flagship phone going for 800+ new.Pros:-The phone comes with no bloatware whatsoever. You’re getting a very true android experience. The OnePlus custom apps are high quality and unobtrusive.-The screen is BEAUTIFUL (Seriously, the AMOLED screen on this thing is the best looking screen I’ve ever seen on a phone).-The battery life is absolutely bonkers. I’m talking take it off the charger at 10am and by 10pm you’re only at 70%. You can use a mostly-true-black wallpaper to save battery as well, thanks to the way AMOLED screens work.-Did I mention it’s pretty? It’s thin but sturdy. The bezels are small and clean. No weird wrap-around edges or anything. Mine came with a big serial number/production info sticker on the back under the oneplus logo, which kind of blows. I could take it off but it’s going in a case and I’d rather have access to that info.-Dude I don’t even know what to say at this point. I am still in the honeymoon period with this phone (This is day 4 with it) so take this review with a grain of salt. But even without new phone goggles, I can see this thing lasting a while. It’s all-around a magnificent piece of tech. OnePlus is new to the phone game and buying this is a show of good faith and an investment in the future of mobile devices.-This is the only phone I’ve ever bought that comes with a case. It’s not a great case, but it’s something. It means a lot to me as a consumer, spending 600 dollars on a cell phone, that the manufacturer included some amount of protection in the box. It shows that OnePlus knows you’re making a big purchase, and they want you to take care of it. This is a super neat thing to me as it’s basically unheard of for a smartphone to come with a case.-OnePlus as a company is amazing. The customer service is tops and they push out updates faster than any other manufacturer at the moment. OnePlus is possibly the only company using android to its full potential right now. Most others, google included, are simply using it as a platform to copy whatever the iPhone does. I hate this. And I’m happy to spend my money with a company moving against the grain. Never Settle.Cons (so you know I’m not a shill):-Dash charging is definitely a little funny. Your stock cable will work 100% but it’s a crapshoot as to which other cables work. If you’re going to use dash charging, buy the cable from OnePlus. Otherwise, a nice Anker cable and brick will get you a good charge in a pinch, it’ll just take a bit longer.-The dash charger that comes with this one is an international charger. So be prepared for that. It does, however, come with an adapter for US plugs. And using the adapter doesn’t seem to slow down or inhibit dash charging at all.-USB-C is great for the user, but it’s a consumer nightmare right now. Be prepared to do a lot of research into cables. You can’t just pick these bad boys up at a gas station any more. You’ve got a 600+ dollar phone.-It’s slick yo. Without a case it feels like this phone just wants to jump out of your hand. The case it comes with isn’t that great either. But it comes with one.-The case selection is kind of wack because it’s not an iPhone or a Galaxy. But you can find some really nice ones on the oneplus website, plus here on Amazon there are a few good ones. Most OnePlus users get one of about 10 different cases, but I imagine the market will open up on those soon.-Fingerprints all over my beautiful screen. :(-I’ve personally never been a fan of the software menu/home/back buttons so I’m putting this as a con. I prefer hardware buttons at the bottom of the phone on the bezel. That being said, this phone may make me a believer soon. It’s so pretty.In conclusion I don’t have a lot to say really. 5 stars. This is a five-star phone. The term “flagship-killer” gets thrown around a lot when we talk about the 5 and 5t. And I think it’s true. This is a $650 phone that will outperform, outlast, and outshine the $1000 iPhone X. This is a phone priced fairly to the consumer, rather than priced against the iPhone. You pay what it’s worth, not on a scale of “how much cheaper than the new iphone do we want to make it.”If you hate Apple you will love this phone.I will fistfight a person over my opinion of this phone.

I prefer hardware buttons at the bottom of the phone on the bezel. That being said, this phone may make me a believer soon. It’s so pretty.In conclusion I don’t have a lot to say really. 5 stars. This is a five-star phone. The term “flagship-killer” gets thrown around a lot when we talk about the 5 and 5t. And I think it’s true. This is a $650 phone that will outperform, outlast, and outshine the $1000 iPhone X. This is a phone priced fairly to the consumer, rather than priced against the iPhone. You pay what it’s worth, not on a scale of “how much cheaper than the new iphone do we want to make it.”If you hate Apple you will love this phone.I will fistfight a person over my opinion of this phone.

    Thru a strange circumstance I’ve had two OnePlus 5t A5010 phones in the last 6 months, and(to say the negative firstly…)the finger unlock function has not worked on either one.That being said, given all the other sterling aspects of the phone as described by others,(whose comments I could emulate but not further explicate,)this sucker definitely deserves 5 stars.Being a 3/4 century old retired engineer, whose last cell phone was a “flip phone”,I am somewhat the bonehead when it comes to the technology incorporated herein:and I have been extremely happy with the responsiveness of their tech support,to which I would give 6 stars, if possible.

    I decided to get this phone after an extensive research in every phone currently available. After a lot of debating, I decided to get this one because it ended having the best cost per value and features I really liked. Some of those features were its metallic frame because I didn’t want a phone that breaks on contact like all the toys being sold right now. Really good performance because I’m coming from a really slow phone. And best of all, it has all of the top-tier characteristics without being super expensive.So far my experience using it has been great. The most notable things are the performance and the fast charging. My battery has lasted for approximately 7 hours while fully using it. And it’s so easy to just charge it for 15 minutes and having 50% or leaving it for around 30 minutes and having it being fully charged. It also handles really heavy apps, sometimes while all of them are running simultaneously.Another thing I really liked was the Oxygen OS. It always has constant security updates and if the rumours are true it will receive Android Pie before the end of the year. So I really like that there’s that security of receiving constant updates and a vibrant Oneplus community where I’ve resolved a lot of my questions.In terms of appearance, I really like it. It has a large screen without having a horrible notch. I choose the Sandstone White color and I couldn’t be happier. The texture feels really nice to the touch and the contrast with the colors of the buttons is really nice. I’m tempted to go without a case but it seems like it might get scuffed or it would absorb dirt. For now, I’m using the transparent case it comes with because it still shows the amazing color but it protects the corners in case I scuff it against anything. In the future, I will either be brave to go caseless or find one I like. But there no much hope of that because all the cases I’ve found seem designed with men in mind.The sound quality is fine for me, it’s not outstanding but I don’t expect that from a phone. But where it totally wins is that it still has a headphone jack! I only imagine the pain in the ass it would be to buy bluetooth headphones or to carry a dongle! never!!The camera is also really good, it doesn’t have all the fancy functions that other phones have, but I’m no expert photographer so I don’t need much.The only things I haven’t liked is that it seems to have connectivity issues, so my wifi suddenly disconnects several times throughout the day. It also doesn’t allow me to turn off my alarm in the morning by swiping my screen as indicated, instead, I’m forced to press the power button. That was a bit annoying to have to figure out at the crack of dawn! Also, I don’t like that Android Oreo doesn’t let me turn my phone upside down, instead I need an extra app for that. What annoys me is that most of these issues have been extensively reported by the Oneplus community, even for previous versions and they haven’t been corrected yet! So that discourages me a little but I hope they will be corrected in the future. Most of them are little issues, but my work is finding bugs in software so once I see them I can’t help but notice them. But apart from that I’m really satisfied and couldn’t wish for anything better!!!
