Review: OnePlus 5T

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

The 5T is OnePlus' finest handset yet. It may be a minor update to the 5, but it's the right update. The 5T adopts the modern screen shape and accounts for the missteps of its predecessor's camera to deliver a more well-rounded and competitive device.

The 5T has a tall footprint to accommodate the larger 6-inch screen, though I think trade-off is well worth it. Around the display you'll find a simple, yet pleasing, piece of metal hardware that looks as good as it feels. Other positives include good signal performance, stellar battery life, and the right selection of ports/jacks.

OnePlus' variant of Android is perhaps the best on the market. It leaves the core functionality in place while adding a wide range of useful controls and tools. The revised camera software is even easier to use than that of the 5, and, more importantly, the 5T takes even better pictures.

The OnePlus 5T is available online and is sold unlocked for $499. It's about the same price point as the Motorola Z2 Play. You're not going to score Galaxy S or iPhone performance from the OnePlus 5T, but you'll spend $300 less and still come pretty close. If you prefer unlocked phones and want to keep costs down and performance up, the OnePlus 5T finds the right mix of both.
