OnePlus 6T Review by Engadget

This smartphone looks pretty nice … 

Never missing an opportunity to spread the good word, not only did OnePlus push out the 6T just in time to mark its fifth anniversary but it also released a tantalizing Thunder Purple edition shortly afterward, followed by the limited McLaren Edition with a whopping 10GB of RAM.

It wasn’t like the company needed this extra marketing ammo; the 6T brought exotic features, like an in-display fingerprint reader and dewdrop notch to the West. It’s also the company’s first ever tie-in with a US carrier, available on T-Mobile.

The biggest question was whether the OnePlus 6T would make a fitting successor to my previous main phone, the OnePlus 6. Back in May, I concluded that the 6 was a very compelling package tagged with an attractive price. It’s a hard act to follow. I’ve since switched to the 6T, and while it does offer some upgrades, there are some new trade-offs, too.

 

Pros

  • Usual solid build quality
  • Slick software performance
  • Great rear cameras 

Cons

  • Sluggish in-display fingerprint reader
  • Removal of the headphone jack
  • Weak haptic vibration
  • Sometimes blurry selfies

 

Summary

OnePlus continues to deliver great hardware and software features with the 6T. However,a sluggish in-display fingerprint reader and the controversial decision to remove the headphone jack might give you pause. The 6T would have otherwise been a fitting successor to the highly praised 6.
