CNET First Look
OnePlus 5T equals a few key upgradesThe step-up 5T is a tiny bit more expensive and adds a larger screen in a similar body. Is it the powerful budget phone to get?
[MUSIC] There's a great big world of affordable but impressively powered phones. The OnePlus 5T is definitely one of them. Its a slight a upgrade to the OnePlus 5, which arrived earlier this year, and became one of CNET's top phone picks. The 5T keeps the same body design, more or less. But it adds an even a larger six inch OLED display. It's only 1080p but it still looks good. The OnePlus 5T has a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 3300 mAh battery, and dual 16 and 20. Megapixels cameras. That offer depth effects for portrait shots like many top-end phones now getting. There's a fingerprint sensor that moved to the back of the phone but 5T also adds face unlocking that promises easy and fast setup in use. I tried it and definitely worked quickly. The phone is not water-resistant for accidental dunks but it does have a headphone jack. OnePlus has it's own variation of Android called Oxygen OS, that looks clean, and has it's own set of apps. Android Oreo will be available in early 2018, or in beta mode by the end of this year. The OnePlus 5T manages to also be a lot more affordable that the other premium phones. at $4.99 with 64 GB of storage or $5.59 for 128 gigs. Pretty pretty good, It'll arrive on November 21st. [SOUND]
