OnePlus 3T Features

The OnePlus 3T follows the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 2, OnePlus X and the OnePlus One as the fourth major smartphone to be released by OnePlus. As expected from a OnePlus smartphone, the OnePlus 3T packs a powerful punch when it comes to specifications, while costing just a shade more than half of what a true flagship of 2016 like the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the LG G5 would cost.


Display & Design

The OnePlus 3T comes has got a similar design and build quality from the OnePlus 3. While the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 featured a sandstone back, the OnePlus 3T like the OnePlus 3 has got a metallic back giving that extra bit of premium-ness. The front of the phone is dominated by a 5.5 inch Full HD display. The screen on the OnePlus 3 uses an Optic AMOLED display. The edges of the phone are nicely curved so that the phone does not feel sharp on the palm, a stark improvement from the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2.


Hardware and Features

The OnePlus 3T is powered by the latest flagship chipset from Qualcomm in the form of Snapdragon 821 chipset. The Snapdragon 821 chipset is coupled with a 6GB of RAM on board, to ensure a lightning fast performance from the device. In terms of features, the phone comes with a fingerprint scanner that is embedded in the home button of the phone. The fingerprint scanner claims to unlock your OnePlus 3T in less than 0.2 seconds.


Camera & Storage

The rear camera on the OnePlus 3T is a 16MP sensor with a single LED flash. The front facing snapper is a 16MP shooter that should suffice for the selfies and video chat requirements. The rear camera is capable of shooting videos in 4K and has OIS, so that the shots come out without any blur. The OnePlus 3T will be available with 64GB and 128GB internal storage options. There is no slot for a MicroSD card here, so you have what you have and cannot expand the memory. Although 64GB should be sufficient for most of the things you want to store, else you could go with the 128GB variant.


Battery and Connectivity

The OnePlus 3T comes with a 3,400 mAh battery, which is non-removable. It comes with a quick charging technology that OnePlus is calling ‘Dash Charging’. On the connectivity front you have a Dual SIM card slot with Nano-SIM cards. This is not a hybrid SIM slot, so do not end up inserting your MicroSD card here. You have LTE support on both the SIM cards as well as the usual array of connectivity options including WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC. There is no radio here, though you will get a USB Type-C port for charging and syncing.


Competition

The closest competition to OnePlus 3T comes from the Google Pixel as both the phones are powered by Snapdragon 821. However, the Pixel features just 4GB of RAM. The LeEco Le Max 2 would be an interesting alternative to the OnePlus 3T too, if you are looking to pick a phone with strong specs at a reasonable price point. If not, all the flagship devices like the LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 would make for good choices.
