‘T’ series phones usually have good features and attractive designs that are modified on the basis of customer feedback. OnePlus does its best to provide its customers with all the features it can in OnePlus 8T.
Features of OnePlus 8T
The smartphone has attractive designs and upgraded specifications as expected by the customers of one Plus. In an attempt to make the non-pro version more attractive and appealing to the customers, the smartphone is embellished with an aluminum frame and a glass back.
The design of the OnePlus 8T is quite different as compared to the OnePlus 8 pro. Oneplus 8 has curved sides whereas the new model of OnePlus 8T has edged corners. Although it does not look as attractive as its predecessors, it is more handy and practical.
Another thing that is noticed in the OnePlus 8T is its weight. The phone is heavier (188g vs 180g)and thicker(8.4mm vs 8mm) than Oneplus 8.
The main reason to make it heavier and thicker is not known but it really feels heavy when used for a long time, one-handed users are greatly facing this difficulty.
The smartphone Oneplus 8t comes with the usual set of accessories. The box contains a data cable, charger, SIM eject tool, sticklers, silicon case, and user guides.
The charger you are going to get in the box is a 65 Watt charger that enables fast charging of the phone. Probably, this is the biggest advantage you are going to get if you buy the brand new OnePlus 8t.
Just like the phone, the software is brand new. Oneplus 8t runs on OxygenOS 11, which is the latest version based on Android 11.
OxygenOS 11 gives the phone a bold look similar to that of Samsung’s One UI. The stock apps in OnePlus phones are seen in big and bold letters when you open the phone but as you scroll down the stock apps appear in regular size.
You can easily see this in most of the OnePlus stock apps like camera, clock, setting, Notes, Recorder, and many more. However, this phenomenon is not seen in the file manager app for an unknown reason.
when you swipe down the home screen you can see the recently launched apps and some contextual information from the apps. If you want to change this gesture you can easily change it by pulling down the notification shade.
The dark mode setting is quite different from the rest as it can work independently irrespective of the different themes. Oneplus has also added an Always-On-Display feature.
This feature is quite interesting as it can show you how many times you have opened your phone. OnePlus is probably going to add more features to its stock apps and the AOD through updating software by November.
OnePlus 8t also contains the feature of Google’s stock dialler and message apps similar to OnePlus Nord. Even after the Android 11 OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 pro will continue with the OnePlus’ apps.
Another interesting feature of the OnePlus 8T is the soothing themes and the phone lets you share a detox experience with other OnePlus users.
Oneplus 8t is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Soc. We have usually noticed that OnePlus usually uses Qualcomm a bit speedier ‘+’ variants.
Unfortunately, this is not true in the case of the OnePlus 8t as it supports the usual Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Soc.
This is available in two configurations- 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage and 12 GB RAM and 256 GB storage.
This Device has upgraded the flash storage and it uses USF 3.1 that was earlier 3.0 in OnePlus 8. OnePlus 8 Pro has RAM DDR5 which is changed to LPDDR4X RAM in OnePlus 8T.
There are various additional features like an in-display fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, face recognition, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC.
The phone has the facility of multiple satellite navigation as well as a flicker detection sensor in its camera module.
OnePlus 8T Better Than OnePlus 8 Pro
when we talk about the price of the phone in India, it is approx rs 42,999 (8GB RAM/ 128GB storage); rs 45,999(12GB RAM and 256GB storage). The next upgrade that is noticeable in the OnePlus 8T is its 4500mah battery.
With the new 65 Watt charging the phone becomes the fastest charging smartphone in the world. OnePlus 8t has an AMOLED display that has a 120Hz refresh rate while it simultaneously maintains the accuracy and brightness level.
The phone has Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Soc. The size of the screen of the OnePlus 8T is 6.5 inch that makes it a bit smaller than the OnePlus 8 pro. Nonetheless, the display is brighter and can go up to 1100 nits.
What Makes OnePlus 8T Unique
when we talk about the look of the phone, although it has a clear OnePlus look. It is less flashy , this phone has got a camera module that is the biggest OnePlus ever had.
The phone has a quad-camera with multiple lenses. It has a front camera that is placed at the left corner of the phone. The phone comes in two different color variants; the new aquamarine green color and the lunar silver color. both the colors are unique in their own ways.
The former color looks a bit glossy while the latter one has a matte-frosted finish. Oneplus has made a few amendments to the display. Although the size of the screen is the same as that of the OnePlus 8, (6.55 inches and full- HD+), the phone supports a 120Hz refresh rate.
The touch sampling rate of the phone has also increased up to 240 Hz that was 180Hz on Oneplus 8, which gives a better touch experience to the users.
The phone has an HDR10+ certified display and JNCD color accuracy that can be increased up to 1100 nits. OnePlus claims that 8T has a slimmer chin, but the difference is not noticeable when compared to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8T.
when we talk about the button layout of the phone, we find that it is similar to other OnePlus phones. the power button is placed on one side while the volume button is placed on the other side of the frame.
This has an alert slider to switch from one ringer profile to another, the phone additionally contains a USB 3.1 type-c on the bottom of the frame.
It has no headphone jack. The phone supports dual sim but it doesn’t provide the facility to increase the storage of the phone.
Can We Go For OnePlus 8T
OnePlus 8t has all the features that are not present in its previous version. Although OnePlus has introduced many changes in OnePlus 8t, there are some features that need to be added to the phone.
Customers of OnePlus were waiting for some big changes like wireless charging and IP rating. Unfortunately, they were disheartened when they found out that these facilities are not available on the new phone.
Most probably Oneplus has deliberately left to introduce these features in the phone as it will mean a complete change from the existing flagship.
The same thing happened when the Nord was launched, it took away the interest of the customers from onePlus 8. Perhaps, OnePlus doesn’t want to repeat the mistake.
Although the price of the phone is a bit higher, you can go to the OnePlus 8t. As there is no reason to buy the OnePlus 8 anymore until the price of the phone is permanently reduced to some extent.
If you are willing to buy the OnePlus phone, you should surely go for OnePlus as it offers various features that I think you are not going to get on any phone at that price.
