OnePlus 7T: is it worth your purchase?
The OnePlus 7T is much better than the standard OnePlus 7, with a larger 6.55-inch screen, larger capacity battery, better camera configuration, and up to 30 W fast charging support.
The design is subtle as well as striking, highlighting the enamelled matte glass finish with which fingerprint marks are avoided. While this is an incredible terminal, some shortcomings and omissions prevent us from listing it as the definitive smartphone of 2019.

Excellent Review: OnePlus 7T Pro
The OnePlus company recently introduced its new OnePlus 7T smartphone model at an event in New Delhi (India), where the company has also announced other interesting developments such as the arrival of its OnePlus TV TV range.
Prices and release date
As expected, and based on the fact that the 2018 OnePlus 6T with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage was priced at € 559, expectations were met and OnePlus launched its new OnePlus 7T in the market at a recommended price of € 599 Launched, 40 more expensive than the previous version. You can buy it on MediaMarkt, Amazon and OnePlus websites from October 17.
In this way, the OnePlus 7T with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage is placed in the barrier below the € 600 range of the Android terminal. This is not the same case of the OnePlus 7T Pro model, which we also know is priced at € 759 for a configuration of 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It also goes on sale on the same day in Spain.

First level screen
According to our impression, the new internal components are not the protagonists of this model, but rather the visual quality offered by the stunning OnePlus 7T screen, which helps in the fact that it supports a 90 Hz refresh rate.
And is that the OnePlus 7T has a generous AMOLED fluid screen of 6.55 inches (compared to 6.41 inches on the OnePlus 7) and with an aspect ratio of 20: 9. Its resolution is 2400 x 1080 pixels, 40% DPI and maximum brightness Is with 1000 NITs, there are enough arguments to improve its use in daylight.
You’ll also get HDR10 certification, another feature of the OnePlus 7 Pro that provides better contrast ratios when viewing HDR content from platforms such as Netflix or YouTube.
The terminal combines it with a new generation display panel which, according to OnePlus, reduces the emission of blue light beam by 40% to offer a better viewing experience that doesn’t affect the view that much.
But obviously, what everyone is talking about right now is the value of the refresh rate offered by your screen. The 90 Hz refresh rate makes the 7T great, whether you’re browsing social media or reading an article on our Ontrendingplus website.
The tones are very soft, a premium viewing experience compared to most smartphone phones you can currently find in the market.
The on-screen fingerprint reader returns with the arrival of the OnePlus 7T, and apparently it’s faster than ever. This is mainly due to the improved algorithms that drive such technology.
As a final result, we see that fingerprint scanning takes one second and almost instantaneously without failure or rejection of the recorded fingerprint at the time we are using the system.
We would dare to say that it is one of the fastest and most sensitive scanners ever.
Apart from the mentioned technology, the OnePlus 7T panel is very close to the bezel, it improves the user experience, with the feeling of being in the highest possible layer of the screen.
It maintains the distinctive notch of the front camera, this time, as a drop of water, with the incentive that it is 30% smaller than the standard OnePlus 7 this time around, and receiving less attention than other smartphones Qualified market signals.
With the new screen, the OnePlus 7T has a better design that makes it different from the standard OnePlus 7 when you look at it from the back, as both devices have very similar finishes on the front.
The main change is given by the set of cameras now included under a central spherical part rather than the rectangular housing present in the previous model.
This circular area, although slightly stretched from the back of the mobile, is fully supported on any horizontal surface once you include the silicone case as standard.
Some may find that the spherical area of the cameras is particularly large, but we think this is not a problem, especially if we consider what this set of cameras can offer us.
The phone is also covered by non-glare glass with a matte glass finish, but matte matte, which gives the device a unique look of its kind.
The new Glacier Blue option is excellent for capturing light, but is not as reflective or bright as a smartphone with a mirror-like finish. We appreciate that subtlety in the sense that it does not become a magnet for our fingerprints.
It is also only 8.1 mm thick, thinner than the standard OnePlus 7’s 8.2 mm, in addition to feeling light in the hands with a weight of 190 mm. The ‘alert slider’ button lovers are in luck with their return.
Without a doubt, there is a quick and practical way to mute a sound, vibration or terminal when you need it. All of this is to unlock the terminal quickly and without any need.
Update on your cameras
As we mentioned earlier, the OnePlus 7T has a triple camera configuration, a general leap against the double camera present in the standard OnePlus 7.
The focal aperture F / 1.6, with the main sensor OnePlus 7 Pro 48MP, is similar to a seven-magnification objective to provide optical image stabilization and a high-quality quick shooting experience, jumping between its modes.
As expected with a camera of these specifications, the performance is impressive. The images offer all kinds of detail, balanced and avoiding saturated and unnatural brightness levels.
There is also pixel-binning technology that improves the quality of the captured images, as well as the Pro mode that allows you to take RAW images of 48 Mp at its best if you wish.
Next to the main sensor already mentioned, we have a camera of 16 Mp ultra wide angle of 117 degrees, whose objective of six elements allows to expand the angles in an exceptional way.
Complete the photo set with 12MP and 2x telephoto lenses with electronic image stabilization in all your photo and video capture modes. From OnePlus they emphasize that the 7T’s wide angle can be used by third-party applications such as Tickcock.
However, as of its launch date, we do not know the list of compatible applications, but will likely add mains to take advantage of their full potential.
On looking at the specification sheet of OnePlus 7T, we find that it is a software that really helps you get out of your cameras.
You can use the ultra wide angle sensor to provide a new macro shooting mode that allows you to take pictures of objects at a distance of just 2.5 cm, capturing small details that get lost in a standard smartphone’s camera Must have gone
The OnePlus 7T also features the new OnePlus’ Nightscape mode, but unlike previous models, it now offers you the option of capturing images using either the main 48 MPP sensor or the wide-angle sensor, which is more in light of the scenery Captures details.
During our tests, we verified that there is a significant difference in the quality of the images produced by each sensor, with the f / 2.2 aperture of the wide-angle lens that is not up to the main one, even lower with the post Supporting algorithms and techniques that overlap multiple images in one shot in light.
The OnePlus 7T also stands out for improvements achieved with portrait mode, thanks to the fact that it now has two different focal points (standard and telephoto), a simple system to jump between the two, allowing the frame It becomes easy to do. Shot.
A high-end flagship
Beyond screens and cameras, the OnePlus 7T, like all updates made on previous ‘T’ models, offers a faster chipset. In particular, it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ CPU with Adreno 640 GPU.
The chip is with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. While other manufacturers opt for different versions of the same phone with different RAM options, OnePlus has decided to retain a single version of the OnePlus 7T.
With this configuration team, we’re not surprised to see how fast the terminal is doing any task, even when it comes to playing the highest level of games, making the most of its 90Hz screen. goes.
In the videogame section, it should be noted that the screen appears at 90 Hz, making it seem like the OnePlus 7T still has a lot of game titles limited to 60 fps.(Review OnePlus 7T)
The OnePlus 7T offers most of the connectivity options that can be expected in such a terminal, including Wifi a / b / g / n / ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and GPS. Unlike the standard OnePlus, there is no 5G variant, at least for now.
This means that you will be made aware of the speed offered by your operator’s 4G LTE frequency band.
You will get a USB-C port with built-in OTG support with 30-W fast charging mode to charge the mobile. Those fans of using the 3.5mm headphone port should know that the OnePlus 7T spreads with it like its predecessors.(Review OnePlus 7T)
Battery, autonomy and charge
Battery life is an important segment for current smartphones. In the case of the OnePlus 7T, we have a capacity of 3800 mAh, with which you can cope with the full guarantee of the day of use under normal conditions.
In the next few days we will do an in-depth test on this section and update the section once the final result and real-life tests are done.(Review OnePlus 7T)
Meanwhile, the interesting fact here is that the 7T offers Warp Charge 30T support (known as 30W fast charging), which will allow you to charge the terminal in the blink of an eye.
OnePlus states that it provides 50% charge in just 20 minutes, using both the supplied charger and the brand cable with a special thickness of it. This allows to reach 70% charge in just 30 minutes and 100% in one hour.
These were our results with the load:
- 20 minutes: 46% charge
- 30 minutes: 69% charge
- 53 minutes, 23 seconds: 100% charge
Any 30 W charger should provide you with this charging speed, since OnePlus states that the improvements are all internal, with the 7T battery being the most efficient of all the generations that have seen the light so far.
OxygenOS 10 improves the Android experience
The speed of use and agility with the interface has always been a brand obsession and this is evident with the new version of the software. OxygenOS 10 supplements Android as a standard, positioning itself as one of the few serious options supported by users.
We count more than 370 customizations compared to the previous version, ranging from animation to terminal unlock or gesture support. All to improve the overall experience with the new OnePlus 7T.(Review OnePlus 7T)
Other 2019 smartphones use OxygenOS 10 as AI, but in a different way. OnePlus learns which applications are used to display its information wisely on the lock screen.
It varies depending on the people you use the most in your day-to-day, but we have noticed that related calendar reminders and multimedia playback information appear without asking us.
Zen mode is also back in OxygenOS 10, with the possibility of extending downtime in 10-minute increments (until now it was from hour to hour). This is perfect for situations where you want to turn off the equipment and disconnect.
OnePlus follows in the footsteps of other Android terminal manufacturers such as Asus or Nokia, offering regular updates and two-year operating system updates with a three-year security patch.(Review OnePlus 7T)
The OnePlus 7T is a SmartPathone that bridges the gap between the company’s standard and Pro range, with a larger 6.55-inch AMOLED screen and a 90Hz refresh rate that will better take advantage of HDR10 compatibility for video content.
The triple camera configuration is located on the rear, including the main lens, another ultra wide angle and a telephoto lens, complemented by the 30-watt fast charge innovation that enhances the phone’s performance and autonomy.
Finally, the design is also striking, as well as the form factor that is lightweight and manageable despite the large size of its screen, which makes it feel distinctly good.
It is true that the absence of wireless charging, as well as the zero probability of drowning in water with some guarantee of success, represents a setback against other models in the market. This prevents a high score on our part.
However, in the absence of knowing its final price, its innovation is undoubtedly quite interesting to excite, especially at the price point where the OnePlus 7T is expected to remain.(Review OnePlus 7T)
