OnePlus 5T: Should you pay extra for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage?

Everyone wants more, but that’s usually dependent on cost as well. Like the OnePlus 5, we once again have two distinct models of the OnePlus 5T, giving you a choice of RAM and storage options for a nominal increase in price. You can stick with the default 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which is plenty for most people and more than many other phones, or you can bump up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for just $60 more. Which model should you buy? Here’s the…

OnePlus 5T review: Come for the value, not the excitement

This company never stops moving, and that means we get a fresh look at the latest hardware twice a year. OnePlus isn’t interested in holding back on specs, features or capabilities to make a big reveal of a new phone just once a year. The scrappy company has settled in on a refresh cycle every six months, with a big release followed by a mid-cycle bump to bring in the latest things it’s been working on. The OnePlus 5T isn’t meant to be an innovative leap of technology that blows…

From the Editor’s Desk: How far can OnePlus go with community-driven software and hardware?

It’s always a tough balance between listening to customers and having a central vision. OnePlus held its first ever in-person launch event in New York City this past week. The OnePlus 5T clearly wasn’t a groundbreaking product deserving of a launch event in itself, but OnePlus used this gathering more so as an opportunity to talk directly to fans and curious onlookers alike. Presenters took an inordinate amount of time talking about things the company had already done. Talking about the history of how OnePlus phones are made, and how…

OnePlus 5T vs. OnePlus 3T: Should you upgrade?

The iterative march can make it tough to know when to upgrade. The average OnePlus phone owner likely upgrades faster than owners of other brands, but even they have limits. Most won’t drop the money to get a new phone every six months … but jumping up every year is totally reasonable. With the release of the OnePlus 5T there are a whole lot of OnePlus 3T owners eyeballing this upgrade who understandably passed on the quick jump to the original OnePlus 5 while their own purchase was still nice…

OnePlus 5T hands-on preview: Relentless iteration

The march of innovation never ends. OnePlus has perfected a strategy over the last two years. Rather than expanding its product portfolio, it simply takes its flagship phone and iterates on it, adding subtle features and updating the design, while sticking to the core principles of having fantastic specs for the money. And in the past two generations now, that has included a mid-cycle refresh of its phone with a “T” variant. Understanding that the diehard fans don’t wait to wait a whole year for a new phone, for fear…

OnePlus 5T specs: 6-inch display, Snapdragon 835 and new low-light camera

Everything inside the latest from OnePlus. Unlike the jump from the OnePlus 3 to the 3T, moving from the OnePlus 5 to the 5T focuses on exterior changes and leaves the internal specs near identical. The same core components of the processor, RAM, storage, battery and charging remain. The only notable changes are the screen size, fingerprint sensor placement and switch to a secondary camera that focuses on low light performance rather than a telephoto lens. Here’s everything you’ll find inside the OnePlus 5T. Category Spec Operating system Android 7.1.1…

The OnePlus 5T is official!

It’s time for another T. For the observant phone geeks, the OnePlus 5T hype cycle and leaks have revealed much of what there is to know about the phone. But of course, we needed confirmation from OnePlus itself: yup, the OnePlus 5T is here, and it’s up for sale earlier than many would’ve thought. Unveiled at its first in-person launch event in New York City, the OnePlus 5T focuses on improving a shortcoming of its predecessor, the camera, while modernizing the design a bit with a move to a larger,…
