OnePlus 5T vs Galaxy S8: What You Need to Know

Fill 1

The new One Plus 5T

The OnePlus 5T has made its official debut and with it comes the age old question of whether or not you should upgrade. So, you will have to put up with Android Nougat until the company rolls out the software update. Also, with OnePlus 5T going bezel-less, this is now a clear trend across the smartphone segment and is likely to become the standard in the coming year.

OnePlus' latest, a "T" release similar to Apple's "S" phones, is kind of like a mid-cycle release.

For the rear camera in its new phone, OnePlus has also changed the lenses.

The OnePlus 5T will be first device from the company to feature an immersive display with a resolution of 18:9. From the screen sizes, cameras, specs, release details and more. You're able to change the navigation bar and the order of the buttons, for example, and assign different long press or double tap actions to each key. Oh yes, the fingerprint sensor is now moved on to the rear.

OnePlus confirmed ahead of the launch event that the 5T will keep its headset jack, a port that's now an endangered species on high-end phones. Sunlight Display automatically adapts the screen's brightness to use cases such as browsing the gallery, taking a photo, recording a video, and gaming. How useful is that to you? The OnePlus 5T is available in three colour variants - Midnight Black, Slate Gray and Soft Gold.

There are a handful of quality of life improvements with the OnePlus 5T, which runs the company's own skin of Android, known as Oxygen OS. For those of you who will soldier on with a OnePlus 5, the Oreo open beta is starting later this month.

The OnePlus 5T is already shaping up to be everything an upgrade should be.

OnePlus 5T specifications on other fronts, however, is the same as that of its predecessor.

The elephant population declined 6 percent overall in Zimbabwe but dropped by 74 percent within one specific region. Conservation groups had blasted the move as further imperiling an already endangered species.

OnePlus 5T also comes with Dash Charge technology, powering the same 3,300mAh battery.

One thing that has yet to be considered here, is perhaps one of the most important factors about upgrading - cost.

The device comes in two variants - 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant priced at Rs 32,999 while the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant priced at Rs 37,999 in India.

What you have to realize about what I just listed is that nearly all of those have been a part of the equation from day 1.

The OnePlus 5T in both the 64 GB and 128 GB (Midnight Black version) storage options will be available in the USA and United Kingdom on November 21. What's sure to be a victor among existing fans and new customers, OnePlus has given the 5T the flavour of a high-end smartphone, at a price you can stomach. Yes, it is a dual camera like the OnePlus 5, but now both the 16MP and the 20MP sensors offer f/1.7 aperture making the rig really efficient in low light situations.

A year is a long time in tech, and almost every internal aspect of the OnePlus 5T has been upgraded over the 3T. As well as a little more user friendliness, this is particularly angled at faster and more consistent updates, presumably due to the amount of controversy that the company has had to face in recent months. If you're looking for value then you've come to the right place.

"Overall dimensions still grow just a bit compared to those of the OnePlus 5 at 6.1" tall, 3" wide, and 0.29" thick (15.6 cm x 7.5 cm x 7.3 mm). Which camp you fall into is something only you can decide.
