OnePlus likes to be disruptive, both in terms of the products it makes, and the way it sells them. In a price conscious market like India, it’s no surprise the company has managed to make a name for itself rather quickly. Each flagship over the years has consistently offered top-of-the-line components at nearly half the price of the competition, which is what has earned OnePlus its fame.

OnePlus 3T Summary

The OnePlus 3T is an upgraded version of the OnePlus 3, and features a bigger battery, higher resolution front camera and a faster SoC. It’s built using a high quality aluminium alloy which makes the 3T look and feel incredibly premium. The 5.5-inch full-HD, Amoled display is brighter this time around with more accurate colours. Powering the phone is the efficient Snapdragon 821 SoC, 6GB of RAM and choice between 64GB and 128GB storage, depending on how much you’re willing to pay. Overall performance is excellent as the 3T easily handles heavy apps and games. The front camera takes sharper and more detailed pictures with better colour reproduction. The rear camera is equally competent and performs well in low-light shots too. Battery life gets a nice boost thanks to the larger 3400mAh battery. With a starting price of Rs. 29,999, the OnePlus 3T continues to be the best Android phone you’ll want to buy in this segment.

  • excllnt phone... no dobt .. grt value fr money.. don't blve the ngtv rvws
    Dev646@gmail.com (Apr 20, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    hi all, this phone is really good and lives upto your expectations... grt value for money... i bought this phone on 14th april 2017 ... after one week of usage and system update, this phone still amazes me ... grt camera (i shot my sisters dance performance in this, grt clarity but 10min of video was 1.5 GB !, it comes with the clarity)... selfies are too good ... grt music player ... good vivid color display... the best part is fastest charging ever experienced! (0 to 100% in 1hr 5 mins !)... and give me 14 hrs of backup with 4G on all the time ... take care to switch off background net using apps like facebook etc.. movies are too good to watch ... take care only charge using the official dash charger coming with this phone, the charger takes up most of the heat without transfering it to the phone ... still a slight heat does come up while it's getting juiced up... the speaker i've exprncd some less power than other phones, may be due to only one sided 6 drilled holes, but one would not mind that much... blv me it's still loud only... the fingerprint sensor is really good , one of the fastest .. faster than my frnd's iphone 7 ! dfntly buy a protective case, the phone feels very premium and you don't want to have it scrtched ...

  • Advice not to experiment and waste your money.
    Sai Prabhu (Feb 4, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    This is my of the product after using it for almost 4 months. Although I am against Chinese products but I could not found better mobile than this at this price range. 6GB RAM: does not deliver what it should actually do. 64GB internal space: more than enough for moderate users 16MP Camera (front and back) : primary camera is awesome but the problem is secondary camera (front camera) is of no use in low light or in dark as there is no flash neither enough screen light for selfie. Display Quality: Good Battery backup: initially I had very good battery back up but as days pass it reduced and now i charge twice a day to support me for gaming / browsing / calling. Overall: 2star for such a bad experience

  • I will share good and bad things about OnePlus 3T along with the ...
    Adv.Abdul Q. (Dec 16, 2016) on Amazon
    5.0 out of 5 stars OnePlus 3T: More than a "flagship killer".By Divaksh - 23 December 2016Amazon Verified PurchaseI have used all of OnePlus devices as my daily driver before and I have posted an in-depth review of OnePlus 3, and now using the OnePlus 3T, So in this review, I will share good and bad things about OnePlus 3T along with the reasons to choose OnePlus 3T or OnePlus 3. So let's get started.--------------------------------------📰 UPDATE (01-01-2017)--------------------------------------OnePlus 3 and 3T both gets OxygenOS 4.0 based on Android N officially via OTA.----------------------📦 Box Contents:----------------------1. OnePlus 3T with Pre-Applied Screen Protector.2. Dash Charge Adapter.3. USB Type C Cable (USB to Type C).4. Sim Card Ejector Tool.5. User Manual.6. A message from company co-founder Carl Pei.7. ₹300 Promo Code of OnePlus India Store.7. Some OnePlus stickers.---------------------👍 The Good:---------------------+ Build quality, this phone has awesome build quality and beautiful metal construction same as OnePlus 3, lighter than OnePlus 2 and with equally weight distribution.+ Sapphire lens protection on the rear camera, no worries for getting it scratched.+ Look, It really looks CLASSY, design is great, curved 2.5D glass.+ OnePlus 3T gets charged 10% to 85% within an hour with its new Dash Charge. All heat dash charge keep in it and it has the ability to keep OnePlus 3T temperatures low even while fast charging, it is the new charging standard OnePlus created for mobile industries.+ Latest Lighting Fast Snapdragon 821 Processor.+ Fast 64GB/128GB UFS 2.0 Flash Storage with read & write speed of ~500MB/s & 250MB/s which is 87% faster than compared to old eMMC 5.0 and 6GB LPDDR4 RAM with R/W speed of ~12000MB/s these are one of the fastest memory modules for smartphones (Faster the memory, lesser the loading and launching time of the apps).+ This is the thumb rule, bigger the display more will be the productivity and Mi Beautiful 5.5 inch Optic AMOLED. display along with the 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4. (The display is not 2k or 4k and you will not even need it when the screen size is 5.5 inch, in fact, 1080p display is good for the performance.). (OnePlus 2 has a IPS display)+ One of the fastest fingerprint sensors which is embedded in a touch home button.+ Both front 16MP and the rear 16MP camera are the best in the class, no shutter lag and takes good pictures in daylight even low light performance is not too bad. The front camera has a wide-angle lens which covers more area than a normal lens. Overall great camera experience.+ Oxygen OS is lightweight and butter smooth.+ NFC Support, I mostly use it to connect my camera to mobile.+ The audio output is good, loud and clear tested with Sony XB70AP wired earphones, Bluedio T2 Bluetooth headphones and Moto Deck wireless speakers.+ Speaker located at the bottom so no matter how OnePlus 3T lays it isn't blocked. speaker volume is good but not excellent like OnePlus 2 but better than the Galaxy S7, S7 edge and iPhone 6s which cost twice of it.+ Good battery backup with the large 3400mAh battery just you need to tweak it a bit.+ Bundled charger and cable quality are awesome. No compromise is done with them.-------------------👎 The Bad:-------------------- No FM, No IR Blaster, today almost all phones packed with this feature but unfortunately both OnePlus 3 & 3T do not have it.- A huge camera bump which does not let you use the device without a case although now it has sapphire protection.- The device is slippery, there is no sandstone back OnePlus is known for.- The very delicate device, dropping it once will break it as the glass has no frame around it to protect.- The headphone jack is now moved to bottom which is really something not in trend and it makes trouble in holding the device in one hand during earphones are plugged.- No lesser focus and dual flash. It has only single LED flash.- No wireless charging.- The charging cable is no longer reversible from the USB end.- No FREE accidental death protection this time, but you can activate it by paying additional Rs1899.---------------------------------------👉 Reasons to choose OnePlus 3:---------------------------------------1. Better front camera although it has low resolution than OnePlus 3T.2. Available at 2k less than OP3T.3. 12 months of FREE accidental damage protection with OnePlus Care.4. For Graphite and Soft Gold colour.---------------------👉 Other Points:---------------------Battery Saving Tip:1. OnePlus 3T has an Optic AMOLED display so keeping the black color on the screen will save OnePlus 3T's battery life. So make a black wallpaper and use dark mode. Additionally, you can install substratum and InversionUI to change everything in black from the play store if you have rooted your device.2. Install and use greenify, people think there is no use of greenify as there is doze mode in Android M but Doze doesn't do anything while your device is in use, whereas Greenify can happily hibernate non-essential apps and boost battery performance.Performance Tweak:Go to phone Settings > About Phone > Hit "Build number" 7 times > back to Settings > Developer Options here change animations speed to .5x from 1x or turn them completely off.Bugs & Fixes:1. OTG not working. To fix this is to jump into Settings > Storage & USB and hit the three dot menu button to ensure that ?Enable OTG? is activated.2. Vibration is disturbing loud (noisy). Opt for replacement.Screen Protection:OnePlus 3 & 3T have a curved 2.5D display because of that no tempered glass will completely have no glue middle of them at the screen area, in this case, you there will be a rainbow effect due to gape between the screen and the tempered glass. Most of the covers will also peel of these full tempered glass so I would recommend you to not buy them.I personally using the no tempered on this mobile, the pre-applied screen protector is good enough to take care of scratches. I will apply another good quality screen protector(not tempered glass) in one or two months.Dash Charging:Dash charge only works with the bundled Dash Charge Adapter and the Cable, if you are not using one of them or both then Dash Charge will not work. In other words, Dash Charge works with only bundled Dash Charge Adapter and the Cable.Current While Charging:Some users may feel electric shock/mild vibrating sensation while charging, which is completely normal. This is known as "current leakage", and is usually caused by the device being grounded differently than your body is. It happens with many devices like laptops, mobiles, etc. It mostly happens devices with the metal frame. OnePlus 3/3T, OnePlus 2 both have solid metal construction so using a case will fix the issue.But if we take the pictures of moving objects it's not good.Thanks for reading my review, I hope it provided all the information for a wise and well-informed purchase decision.
