How can OnePlus be left behind if there are already mobile giants always on a run. To keep upbreast in the mobile market OnePlus went on to launch 5T. Year 2017 have been a competition for bigger screen for mobile giants. Samsung Galaxy with curved screen, iPhone X with full-screen, same is the story of Oppo F5, Vivo V7 Plus, Honor 9i. All these mobile phones are with taller screen and occupying full-screen.
With 6.01-inch AMOLED screen has a 1080×2160 pixels. It has 18:9 aspect ratio with 401 ppi pixel density, and 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass 5 protection. The sad part is OnePlus 5T is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat running on Oxygen OS 4.7. However, OnePlus have promised to come up with Android 8.0 update early next year.
One feature which was not yet seen is now available in OnePlus 5T is face recognition lock. You can lock & unlock easily by authenticating your face with the help of front camera. Fingerprint sensor have been displaced from the front bottom section of the phone to the back of the phone. It is said that some issues were faced by placing it on the front face of the phone. This is one drawback because users usually prefer fingerprint sensor in front since it’s not so comfortable at the back of the phone.
Coming to description of the phone, at the bottom of the phone is a large speaker followed by Type-C USB port, and 3.5mm audio socket just beside it. On the left you can see the OnePlus alert slider which will bring the phone to DND mode, and volume buttons. On the right, there is a tray for two Nano-Sim slot and power button. Sadly, there is no option for expandable memory storage slot, so there is no micro card SD slot!
Moving to camera features, there are 2 rear cameras where the secondary will be for low-light performance. So you can get 16mp as well as 20mp (being the secondary camera) sensor on the rear with f/1.7 aperture lenses. If there is low light then the camera will automatically switch to secondary camera for better output. Front camera is also a 16 mp sensor with f/2.0 aperture lenses for better selfies.
