The OnePlus 6T’s launch is a landmark moment for the Chinese smartphone manufacturer as this is the first time the company has scored a deal with a US-based telecom carrier. This allows the company to gain a foothold in the US market and try and boost its sales there. However, is the OnePlus 6T a great fit for India? OnePlus 6T offers similar hardware in an all-new design but is that good enough to merit purchase? Reviews editor Jamshed Avari and fellow reviewer Aditya Shenoy join host Pranay Parab to discuss. We begin this episode by talking about the OnePlus 6T’s design, which is where we mention the new waterdrop style notch. We then look at all the other changes to the design of the phone and how they affect the overall experience. This includes the removal of the headphone jack and the Screen Unlock feature, also known as the in-display fingerprint reader. There are always trade-offs to adopting new tech and we discuss whether OnePlus 6T’s price is worth those trade-offs.
Then we talk about the OnePlus 6T’s software and performance. Here we look at how the OnePlus 6T performs against its predecessor, the OnePlus 6. OnePlus 6T’s specifications don’t show much difference when compared with the OnePlus 6, but does that mean performance is also similar? Jamshed shares his thoughts. Then we talk about the camera performance of the OnePlus 6T and how it fares against the competition. Finally, we look at the OnePlus 6T price and whether it is worth the money. Are you getting flagship features at a low price or is the OnePlus 6T a mid-range phone with a couple of flagship features? We try our best to answer that question.
