OnePlus 5T Review: The Phone We’ve Been Waiting For

Hi guys, it’s MTG here, and today I’m going to be reviewing the OnePlus 5T I’ve had this phone for almost 3 weeks now, and with the holiday season approaching, I wanted to share my thoughts on the device

Is this phone inexpensive for a reason? Or is it really just a solid phone Hopefully, this video will help you answer those questions and help you decide if this phone is the one for you Let’s get right into it I’ll first go over the design and specifications of this phone, which on paper, look a lot better than some other flagships right now Right off the bat, you’ll notice that OnePlus followed the trend of 2017, and created a phone with minimal bezels

The body of the phone is aluminum, while the front is Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 The 5T has a 6 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160, and a screen to body ratio of 805% This phone comes in two different versions One with 64 GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM, and another with 128 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM

Both versions are powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core SnapDragon 835 chipset Despite the high-end specifications, the OnePlus 5T starts at just $499, and the 8GB of RAM and 128 GB storage option is just $559 With Apple charging a thousand dollars for their latest flagship, the OnePlus 5T literally starts at half the price of one of its biggest competitors Powering the phone is a 3,300 mAh battery that will last you all day, even on heavy usage days You can even forget to plug it in at night, and because it charges so quickly, you can get it almost full charge again before you have to head out for the day

This gets me to my next point about feeling appreciated Some companies, and you all know what company I’m really talking about, will charge you for something that should come with every phone, like fast charging adapters and cables OnePlus includes the fastest wall adapter and cable available, in the box Also, it seems to be of very good quality The case that you see here was also included in the box

And if you noticed throughout the video that there was a screen protector on the phone, that is because OnePlus included a pre-installed screen protector on the phone itself that does not have to be peeled off, and comes absolutely perfect and bubble-free It’s the little things such as these that make me, as a consumer, feel appreciated and more inclined to buy more of the company’s products, so good job OnePlus The main difference between this phone and all previous OnePlus phones is this new 18:9 aspect ratio AMOLED screen Although it has a lower resolution than other flagships out right now at 1080p, the quality of the screen is excellent Colors pop, text is crisp, and the screen is bright enough to see even in direct sunlight

Frankly, if you put the 5T next to the other big name flagships, the screen holds its ground If you’re holding your phone at a reasonable distance to your face, it will be really difficult to distinguish between this 1080p panel to other 1440p panels While using the phone for the past couple of weeks, I’ve grown to really like subtle features that OnePlus has included in their latest flagship The phone has an alert slider on its left side that allows you to toggle between its normal settings, whatever you set for do not disturb, and silent The slider just makes it really easy to toggle between notification settings, and adds that third position that even iPhones don’t have

In terms of cool software features, one that stood out to me was the inclusion of gestures You can set various gesture to do different tasks from your lock screen For example, you can draw an O and open the camera app, or draw a v to turn on and off the flashlight You’ll be able to use gestures to do other tasks and open any app on your phone When looking at the OnePlus 5T’s overall software experience, Android purists will be happy to see that OnePlus‘s Oxygen OS skin keeps the experience almost stock

This phone ships with Android Nougat, which also means that it has Google Assistant The phone may not initially open some apps as fast as the Pixel 2 XL, but the 8 Gigabytes of RAM means that you can keep a lot more apps open and ready to use throughout the day The user experience is very fluid and snappy With this phone, stuttering and lag will not be a problem The phone has a single, down-firing speaker that does actually get a lot louder than I expected

And yes, you can also rest assured that this phone, despite it being 2017, ships with a headphone jack As I’ve said in previous videos, there is still a level of ease plugging in a pair of wired earphones that don’t require a charge In terms of security, the OnePlus 5T gives you multiple ways of unlocking your phone with a fingerprint scanner on the back, and face unlock The fingerprint scanner works really fast as OnePlus has gone away with any sort of unlocking animation You just go right into your homescreen

The face unlock on the phone only uses the front camera so it’s not as secure and doesn’t work when it’s dark or if there is a lot of light behind your face But in all other scenarios, this is the fastest facial recognition I have ever seen Again, there are no animations, so as soon as I click the power button, it recognizes my face and just puts me right at my home screen Shifting over to the OnePlus 5T’s camera, I can say that the phone not only has a great camera for the price, but a very respectable camera overall disregarding price altogether The phone has a dual camera system, where the main lens is 16 Megapixels, and the secondary lens is 20 Megapixels

They both have an aperture of f/17, and interestingly enough, OnePlus has elected to ditch the telephoto lens and go with a secondary “low-light” camera OnePlus‘s explanation is that in very low-light, the phone will automatically switch to its secondary camera Utilizing it’s extremely high 20 Megapixels, it will intelligently combine every four pixels into one to reduce noise My initial thoughts are that the secondary camera doesn’t do enough better in low-light to justify taking away a telephoto lens

But if we just look at the main camera, it stands it’s ground when put up against other flagships The camera picks up a tremendous amount of detail during the day, and does a pretty good job at reducing noise in low light I have also taken some pretty good portrait mode pictures from this camera In general, the 5T’s cameras take really solid pictures in whatever scenario you throw at them Colors are accurate, and a tremendous amount of detail is picked up

Subscribe and stay tuned for my in-depth camera comparisons with the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL, which should be up a day or two after this video is posted Watch those videos to see more shots and to see how the 5T’s cameras compare to two of the best smartphone cameras on the market right now There are things that I consider as drawbacks of owning this phone But keep in mind, none of these made me think “ah that’s why this phone is only $500” They are just things I wanted to address

This phone doesn’t have some features that have been on other flagships this year, such as expandable storage, wireless charging, and water resistance The second lens doesn’t have too much functionality outside of taking slightly better night shots in really dark conditions The lack of any sort of front-firing speaker makes it easy for you to cover the phone’s speaker as you hold it in a natural position There is this minor issue that I have where the power button is too easily pressed It’s odd, but I have accidentally turned on the screen more times than I have accidentally squeezed the Pixel 2 XL

Another drawback has to do with service This isn’t a phone that is available at any electronic stores or through any carriers, you have to order it on their website and all issues and problems have to go through their website Repairs won’t be as simple as walking into an Apple Store or visiting your carrier or Best Buy Also, other big name phone manufacturers have built a reputation of creating phones that are not only functioning after more than two years, but are still doing well With OnePlus, I don’t know if I’ve seen enough from them to say that these phones will stand the test of time, but by all means they definitely could

After using this phone for about three weeks now, I want to give props to OnePlus for not only making a phone that is one of the best budget options right now, but for someone who likes a near stock Android experience and a great phone It’s really a great thing to have a phone this functional and well built at a price that is so relatively low The OnePlus 5T shows that great phones can still be made without insane price tags The OnePlus 5T is not a great phone for its price It is a great phone, period

It can charge faster than any phone out there, has more RAM than most of its competitors, and maintains a headphone jack The OnePlus 5T is a phone that more people should be looking into, because it just makes so much sense If you liked this video, please give this video a thumbs up I’m working on a lot of new content right now, so make sure to click the logo down below to subscribe, and make sure to have the notification bell clicked to stay up-to-date on my latest videos Check the description for links to my social media accounts, and as always, thanks for watching, and I will see you in the next video
