Review: OnePlus 6T
OnePlus has done a fine job with the 6T. The device is a true upgrade to the 6 thanks to the larger battery, greater default storage, sharper cameras, and reduced display notch. Some OnePlus fans may be dismayed that the company erased the headphone jack, and I wish the in-display fingerprint reader were faster.
The sleek design and high-quality materials compare well to phones from Apple, Google, LG, and Samsung. The AMOLED display is very good, battery life is better than most, and data speeds were among the best. It's a bummer that voice calls are barely average. I'd love to see the 6T's ringer switch show up on other phones. Similarly, I wish the stereo speakers available on most other flagships would find their way to OnePlus devices.
OxygenOS is the best user interface skin on the market right now, better even than stock Android. It's clean, fast, and includes tools that are truly helpful. OnePlus' camera application is straightforward and quicker than most. I'm pleased that OnePlus has stepped up its camera game; the phone takes excellent pictures and video.
The OnePlus 6T starts at $549 for the 6 GB / 128 GB combo. I say pay the extra $30 to jump to the 8 GB / 128 GB configuration. Even at $579, the 6T is $300 to $600 cheaper than comparable phones from Apple and Google. In this case, the savings are absolutely worth it.
The OnePlus 6T is the company's latest flagship, and it further refines the company's hallmark "affordable flagship" approach. New is the in-display fingerprint reader.
