Now the company launched 2nd flagship of the year i.e. OnePlus 5T which comes with the new design.

With this smartphone, OnePlus moving the position of the fingerprint sensor to the back side. But I think a front Home button gives a premium looks to their smartphones.

Here is the next upgradation in the OnePlus 5T i.e. camera upgrade. In Oneplus 5 also we have dual camera setup in which one is 16 MP and another is 20 MP. But Now in OnePlus 5T, we have both the camera of 20MP to capture more natural n perfect clicks. In this dual camera setup, one camera is our normal RGB camera and the second is moving camera means its lens can move forward and backward internally so that you can get better zoom at the object or to get best portrait mode.

This camera module also comes with EIS i.e. Electronics Image Stabilization which can help you to take a clear photo in the shaky environment also like while running, trains, etc. You can take 4K videos with this EIS features!!! so clearer videos while moving also. In One word, The camera module is just awesome and perfect. This rear camera capable to record 4K resolution videos at 30fps,1080p resolution videos at 60fps,1080p resolution videos at 30fps,720p resolution videos at 30fps AND Slow Motion 720p videos at 120fps Time-Lapse.

OnePlus 5T has a 16MP front camera with aperture f/2.0 and this camera is also used to unlock your phone. i.e for face recognition. This camera also capable to capture 1080p resolution videos at 30fps and 720p resolution at 30fps Time-Lapse videos.

Other Features:-

1] Face Recognition:- OnePlus 5T support only 2D face recognition but still the speed of unlocking is very fast then expected or compared to any other devices. you just take the device in front of the face and it gets unlock within 1 Second. How can it be soo fast and accurate? To use face recognition feature, the display should be powered on. as soon as u press the unlock the button keeping device in front of the face, the device gets unlocked so fast that you are not able to see lock screen also. But this doesn’t work if you are wearing glasses or hat etc. If you just want to check out lock screen for notifications or any other stuff, you are not able to do that on the lock screen. because as you take the device in front of face it gets unlock and shows home screen directly without asking any confirmation like in iPhone X, you need to slide up after facial unlock.

2] OnePlus again did a good job by not removing 3.5mm headphone jack. Thaks to One plus.

Sensors and Connectivity:-

List of Sensors:- Fingerprint sensor, Hall,  Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Proximity, RGB Ambient Light Sensor, Electronic Compass, Sensor Hub etc.

Connectivity options:-  4G LTE support, 2×2 MIMO, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 2.4G/5G, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB 2.0, Type-C, Support USB Audio, OTG support,NFC enabled 


This Handset has 3300 mAh non-removable battery with dash charge(5V 4A) support. your getsice get charge more the 60 % in just 30 minutes.


OnePlus 5T is the very good choice in the range of above INR 30,000 with full loaded specifications in it. For those who recently bought OnePlus 5, No need to upgrade for just large display and camera improvements in 5T. But for those, who are planning to buy a smartphone I strongly recommend this OnePlus 5T for you if plannig to buy a new and long lasting smartphone.OnePlus also keep the pricing same for one plus 5 and 5T which is a good thing.But I think Waterproof is still missing in the oneplus device hope that next onePluse 6 came up with waterproof feature out of the box. OnePlus also did a good job by keeping 3.5mm headphone jack with USB Type-C port. As I said earlier, face recognition is very fast but one disadvantage is that whenever you looked at your device, It get’s unlocked. you cannot check notifications on just lock screen when face recognition is enabled.
