OnePlus 6T Review
OnePlus jumped into the ‘dual flagship in a year’ bandwagon with the 3T that was unveiled two years ago. The company then launched the 5T which was a considerable upgrade over the OnePlus 5.
OnePlus had run a couple of polls asking its followers on how important they found the headphone jack to be several months back. But with the 6T, the company has completely ditched it, mentioning this was done to free up space for a new technology.
The technology that led to the lack of headphone jack on the OnePlus 6T is the in-display fingerprint scanner. Like some of the devices from Oppo and Vivo, this device too houses the sensor that is placed under the large display. It has been claimed that it will be able to unlock the phone in around 0.34 seconds. So, it will be interesting to see how fast this scanner is in real life.
The device now comes with a 3,700 mAh battery which is certainly a welcome move.
The OnePlus 6T comes with a similar camera setup like its predecessor, but a few features have been added to it. The camera app will come with Scene Recognition feature which will understand the surrounding and apply the necessary settings.
This feature takes various aspects (HDR, details optimization, noise reduction, and multi-frame stabilization) into consideration to capture a good night-time image. The company also talked about the new Studio Lighting feature which helps take better portrait shots.
OnePlus had claimed “a whole new UI” with the 6T, but even with the over 800 optimizations claim, that was not the case.
On the front, the OnePlus 6T now has a depleted chin and a tiny notch which is shaped like a waterdrop.
And as the notch shrunk on the 6T, the phone had to bid farewell to the notification LED. This notch is surrounded by the Full HD display which OnePlus has been opting for since the OnePlus One. This time though, the screen is the tallest one on any OnePlus phone measuring 6.41-inch with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
