ONE PLUS 6T REVIEW
One plus entered the smartphone market with its “One plus one” in 2014. Since then, one plus launched flagship smartphones at affordable prices. One plus never backed to impress us with its new flagships and bi-annual launches. Whenever a new phone is launched by One plus, it is always filled with excitement and enthusiasm. And One plus 6T is no less. “One plus 6T” was recently launched in November 2018. The specifications of this smartphone are:
One plus 6T comes with the 6.41 inches optic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 19.5: 9 screen to body ratio. The screen resolution is known to be 1080 x 2340 with 402 PPI and it is protected by the latest corning gorilla glass 6. This time one plus introduced the water drop notch or a dew-drop notch which seems negligibly small to distract the screen. However, you can hide the notch in the settings. There are different modes like the adaptive mode which changes the brightness and the contrast of the screen according to day-light conditions. The reading mode changes the settings accordingly so that our eyes don’t become strained. The night mode shifts the colours of the screen to make the screen more adaptive to the eyes. The display also features sRGB colours and DCI-P3 for more vibrant display look.
The One plus 6T is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845(10 nm) SoC. It is an octa-core processor with four cores of 2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold and four cores of 1.7 GHz kryo 385 Silver. This phone comes with the latest Adreno 630 GPU for high-end gaming performance. It works with the One plus’ Oxygen OS 9.0.5 User interface. The operating system is the latest Android 9.0(Pie). The gaming mode is another feature which blocks the notifications, maximizes the data to the game, and changes the display and sound settings so that the gaming works perfectly. The gesture control system of the One plus is quite different to the one with iPhone XS Max and the Huawei mate 20 pro but using it frequently will make it easier.
The phone is available in three storage variants: 6GB RAM with 128 GB storage, 8 GB RAM with 128 GB and 256 GB storage.
The camera didn’t get an upgrade from the One plus 6. The rear camera of the One plus 6T is a dual lens with the primary lens having 16 MP f/1.7 aperture (Sony IMX 519 sensor) wide angle lens with Phase Detection Autofocus(PDAF), OIS(Optical Image Stabilization), and the secondary lens having 20 MP f/1.7(Sony IMX 376K sensor) telephoto lens with PDAF, 2x optical zoom, dual tone dual-LED flash. We can take 2160p 4K videos at 60 fps(frames per second), Slow motion videos at 720p at 480 fps. The front-facing camera features a 16 MP f/2.0 aperture(Sony IMX 371 sensor) lens with OIS, Autofocus. We can take 1080p Hd videos at 30 fps.
The intelligent screen recognition feature recognizes the frame and adjusts the screen settings according to it. The night mode changes the camera settings during low lighting conditions. By using the camera, we can say that it is not the best among its competitors but better than the one plus previous versions.
The One plus 6T comes with the full glass body similar to the previous one plus 6. It comes with aluminium framing on the sides. It is water and splash resistant but the IPxx is not specified by one plus. The top of the phone is kept empty while the bottom has the stereo speakers and the USB-C port. The volume button is to the left and the power button and alert slider to the right. This phone comes with the new in display fingerprint scanner and also comes with a face ID unlock. One plus removed the headphone jack this time contrary to its presence in one plus 6 The USB C to 3.5 mm converter is available within the box.
One plus 6t is available in three different colour variants: Midnight black, mirror black and the thunder purple(recently launched). All the variants look beautiful but the thunder purple version is the new variant which must be given a try.
The One plus 6T comes with 3700 Mah battery capacity providing a complete day of battery life if heavily used. The space of the headphone jack is occupied by this extra 400 mah(3300 mah in one plus 6). It comes with One plus Dash charger which charges from 0 % to 70 % with 30 minutes of charge.
One plus 6T has features comparable to the top flagship smartphones like the iPhone XS Max, Google pixel 3 XL, Huawei Mate 20 pro, Samsung galaxy note 9, etc.. The price is nearly half of what the other phones cost. With new features like the in-display fingerprint, waterdrop notch, upgraded camera and battery, one plus 6t is a phone worth every penny you pay for it. There are no other alternatives you can get with the same features and at that price range.
