You get a more modern, more appealing phone at exactly the same price as the OnePlus 5, so of course the 5T is the better pick. While a number "5" is prominently slapped dead center on the front of the white-red box, it's indeed the OnePlus 5T we're dealing with here - evident in the OnePlus 5T name found around the sides.

There are two OnePlus 5T variants to choose from: one with 64GB of built-in storage and 6GB of RAM and the other with 128GB of built-in storage and 8GB of RAM. Why wouldn't it? OnePlus launched the 5T at the same launch price as its predecessor, even though the new handset bagged upgrades such as new design, camera improvements and new facial unlocking software.

This is a significant upgrade over the telephoto lens that we saw on OnePlus 5 as we liked the device for its better low-light capabilities.

Not many changes have been made in the hardware of OnePlus 5T.

On the connectivity options of Oneplus 5T include MIMO 2×2, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, headphone jack, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, USB Type C 2.0, fingerprint sensor and dual-SIM.

At a price tag of Rs 32,999, OnePlus 5T is also one of the cheapest in the market to sport 8GB RAM. Apparently, the company doesn't want you to see the T models as new phones, rather, they are just variants of the previous models.

Google said it discarded all of the cell tower data and didn't proceed with the plan like they originally wanted to. Cell tower locations are very important, although not a very precise indicator of where you might be.

The OnePlus 5T features a 6.01-inch full-HD+ (1080x1920 pixels) Full Optic AMOLED with an 18:9 aspect ratio, 401ppi pixel density, and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Thus OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are similar when it comes to features.

Unfortunately, this update also brings bad news, as it will not come with Project Treble.

Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU. It has the same 3300mAh battery that supports Dash Charging tech.

Continuing with its precedent of introducing a "T" variant - OnePlus 5 that came five months ago became the bestseller - 5T with a few hardware changes and no change in pricing makes OnePlus 5 nearly obsolete. Carl also said that they have opted for the new 20 MP F/1.7 lens for the improved portrait mode and low light performance. At its launch event, OnePlus said that the Android 8.0 Oreo update will rollout for both the models early next year. Also, the location of a fingerprint scanner in OnePlus 5T is shifted at the back compared to OnePlus 5 in which the fingerprint scanner is present at the front.

OnePlus' "Dash Charging" feature works quickly and we managed to get nearly 65 per cent juice on a single charge.
