With the OnePlus 6T you get a very fast smartphone, which is ideal for gaming, but it has since been superceded by the OnePlus 7 Pro family, -- so is the 6T still worthy of being in your pocket? Let's find out... Solid smartphone with small notch The OnePlus 6T is available in 2 colours: Midnight Black with a rugged structure and Mirror Black with a glossy surface, which is lovely, but very prone to fingerprints. According to our reviewer, the rounded edges and the back of glass make a noble impression. Compared to its predecessor the 5, the unpopular Notch in the display has become smaller. As a result, there is no longer a status LED. Also missing this time a jack and the back fingerprint scanner. The latter is now integrated in the display, as with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Also new is the face scanner: unlocking works flawlessly with both techniques. Of course, there is also a sample procedure and a PIN input. Few changes with the display and the camera With the display, the improvements are limited compared to the predecessor sadly. Again, an OLED panel is used, which is now slightly larger with 6.41 inches. According to TechAdvisor, it offers 4 times higher contrast, but the brightness has decreased significantly. The main camera has 2 lenses. One with 16 megapixels and another with 20 megapixels for depth effects. There is also an AI, which should get the best out of the photos. But all this has not led to any qualitative improvement - in the testing we did, the main camera even outperformed that of its predecessor. That said, colours, contrast and sharpness are convincing. Only in low light, the noise increases noticeably. Strong performance, long battery life In terms of performance, the OnePlus 6T is well-equipped with the Snapdragon 845 CPU. Not only everyday applications, but even elaborate games pose no problem. We noticed that it can outperform its predecessor in the Antutu benchmark by 11%. High-resolution VR content is displayed at an average of 57 fps. The battery capacity has grown from 3300 to 3700 mAh as well; according to our reviewer the battery lasts 1.3 hours longer than its predecessor. This review determined that with 14:25 hours a battery life is slightly better than the Galaxy Note 9. Our reviewer also praises the fast charge of approximately 1:27 hours, come up with similar values. Unfortunately, you have to give up here again on a wireless charging. Up-to-date software The operating system is Android 9 with OxygenOS used. It is fast, intuitive and always up to date. In addition to numerous extras, such as the cloning of apps, is now the first time a gesture control has been used in Android... The memory can not be upgraded, but you can use a 2nd Nano SIM card. Our Verdict "Unlock The Speed" - the slogan of the OnePlus 6T is indeed true. Only a few smartphones were currently faster at the time of launch, although this has now changed - but you need to pay a higher price for that. So the 6T is a great phone, somewhat similar to its predecessor which disappointed many reviewers as they like to see changes and updates made But praiseworthy are also the face scanner, the small Notch and the long battery life. Otherwise there are hardly any differences to the predecessor. OnePlus 6T price UK On contract expect to pay £20 a month for an 18 month contract. If you prefer to buy the handset, then the price is £349 in the UK currently.
