We love OnePlus. However, it’s a brand that isn’t the most popular here. Their devices are amazing. Seriously, have you seen the OnePlus 7T before? It’s a beast that we’ll be talking about below.
The 7T is a good-looking phone, just look at it. Its frosted back is mesmerizing no matter the lighting. The phone’s camera set-up is intriguing as well, it’s very Lumia-like.
If you have smaller hands, you might not like to hear this, but the 7T is huge. It’s a 6.55-inch phone, towering over most devices on the market.
The 7T is built well. This isn’t a surprise considering its price. You’re getting Gorilla Glass 5 all over its body. We love how durable the glass is, but we have a complaint. How do you feel about fingerprint magnets? That’s exactly what the 7T is.
It’s got some heft to it too, being 190 grams.
You’re purchasing a pretty slim phone. Its dimensions are 160.9 x 74.4 x 8.1 mm. We’re total fans. We’re also fans of how easy its buttons are to reach.
When looking around its sides, you’ll be glad to see a headphone jack. You’ll also see a USB-C port, but its presence isn’t surprising. What about a MicroSD slot? Unfortunately, the phone doesn’t come with one.
OnePlus recently unveiled an all-white version of the 7t in order to mark the one-year anniversary of the phone's release. Beautiful as it is, this variant of the device only seems to be available in China at the moment.
The 7T rocks a Fluid AMOLED display. You’re probably wondering what a “Fluid” AMOLED is. It’s similar to a regular AMOLED, just that its display is super smooth. It comes with a 90 HZ refresh rate, making animations buttery.
If notches aren’t your cup of tea, the 7T is the phone for you. You’ll barely notice its notch as it’s so small. You’ll notice that the phone barely comes with any bezel too. It rocks an impressive 86.5% screen to body ratio.
There is Gorilla Glass 5 on its rear. Just like its back, the glass is on its front.
Having an AMOLED display, colours are very vivid. The fact that the 7T is so sharp makes its viewing experience even better. Its screen resolution is 1080 x 2400 pixels.
The cherry on top is its ability to play HDR content. The OnePlus 7T is an HDR10+ device, after all.
What do you think about the OnePlus 7 Pro? Everyone loved its display, especially the fact that it was curved. OnePlus decided to not curve the 7T’s display. We’re bummed as it would’ve made its viewing experience extra better.
A 3800 mAh battery is by your side. Its screen and processor are powerful. This is why you shouldn’t expect its battery to last very long. You’ll barely get a day from it.
Charging-wise, the 7T comes with 30 W fast charging capabilities. Pop Netflix on, you’ll be chilling for 70 minutes while it charges.
For a former flagship, you’d expect the 7T to be able to wirelessly charge. To our surprise, it doesn’t come with the feature.
Let’s not forget that the 7T is a flagship that was released just a year ago. It comes with a processor that’s still a beast by today’s standards. The Snapdragon 855+ chip inside of it. It’s godly.
It’s no surprise that the phone has Android 10.
You get impressive storage variants. The 7T offers variants with 128 or 256 GB of space with 8 gigs of RAM. If you’re looking to expand its storage, we hate to remind you that it doesn’t come with a MicroSD slot.
Of course, OnePlus’ OxygenOS is on the phone. It’s extremely customizable and comes with little bloatware.
Its intriguing set-up hosts 3 sensors. The primary sensor is a 48 MP wide lens, the secondary sensor is a 12 MP telephoto lens and the third sensor is a 16 MP ultrawide lens.
Shots are sharp. We’re fans of how crisp they look. Colour accuracy is incredible too.
However, we noticed that its telephoto, wide, and standard modes take shots that are a bit different in colour accuracy.
Its contrast is good, yet the phone doesn’t get aggressive with its dynamic range.
A 16 MP front camera is on the phone. It’s excellent, performing similarly to its main set up.
The 7T is a phone that knows what it’s doing. Let’s see how it fairs when compared with alternatives below.
The S10 isn’t the most comfortable to hold. If you look at its edges, you’ll see that they aren’t the smoothest. Size matters, which is why we’re not too big on the S10 being smaller than the 7T.
You’re getting a 6.1 inch device. Its OnePlus counterpart towers over it.
It’s a lighter device too. It’s a feather compared to the 7T, being 157 grams.
Let’s not forget that the S10 is a former flagship. It’s impeccably built, with a Gorilla Glass 5 body.
In terms of display, it packs a punch. Its punch hits harder than the OnePlus 7T’s as you get a Dynamic AMOLED display. It’s similar to a regular AMOLED but has deeper blacks. Speaking of its display, we just have to talk about its screen to body ratio. You’re barely getting any bezels. The S10 rocks 88.3% screen to body ratio.
Your jaw will drop when you hear how sharp it is. It rocks an incredible 1440 x 3040-pixel screen.
Although there is Gorilla Glass 5 on its rear, Gorilla Glass 6 is on its front. This makes it more durable than its OnePlus counterpart.
The phone’s also an HDR10+ device, going head-to-head with the 7T.
In terms of processors, can the S10 go head-to-head with the 7T? Not really. The 855+ beats its Exynos 9820 chip.
Its storage capacities eat the OnePlus up. You can choose from 128 and a massive 512 GB of space. The fact that the phone offers so much space but still comes with a MicroSD card is just mind-blowing. What about its RAM? You get a cool 8 gigs.
Unlike the 7T, you’re getting Android 9 out of the box. No surprise, the former flagship can be upgraded to Android 10.
The S10’s battery isn’t that great. There’s a measly 3400 mAh unit inside it. Considering that its processor and screen are taxing, the phone lasts less than a day. It’s unfortunate that it only comes with 15 W fast charging. The device takes around 2 hours to go from 0-100%.
What isn’t unfortunate is its wireless charging capabilities. You can reverse charge too, which is a nice touch.
Let’s talk about its camera. A triple set-up is by your side. The S10 has a 12 MP wide primary lens, a 12 MP secondary telephoto lens, and a third 16 MP ultrawide lens. Front camera wise, you can play with its 10 MP shooter.
The Note 10 Lite is a giant, rocking a 6.7 inch display. As it’s a premium device, there’s no surprise that it’s well built. It’s made from Gorilla Glass, but we have no idea what type. I guess Samsung wants to keep this a secret?
Its edges aren’t the smoothest. This makes it hard to hold. You’ll realize that the phone is pretty slippery too.
You can expect a great viewing experience. The Samsung device rocks a Super AMOLED display. This means colours pop. It’s not 90 HZ though, so don’t expect it to be that fluid.
It barely comes with any bezels, having a screen to body ratio that’s similar to its OnePlus counterpart.
Like the 7T, the Note 10 Lite comes with a 1080 x 2400 pixel screen resolution. You already know how we feel about this.
Yes, the phone can play HDR content but we have some bad news for you, it’s not an HDR10+ device.
We’re met with another Exynos processor. This time around, it’s the Exynos 9810. It gets gobbled up by the 855+ chip.
Unlike the S10, you get Android 10 out of the box. This makes the phone convenient to use as you won’t be waiting for the update.
The Note Lite’s memory variants aren’t the most impressive. You only get 128 GB of space with either 6 or 8 gigs of RAM. You’re probably wondering if its storage is expandable. Fortunately for us, it is.
How do you feel about a 4500 mAh battery? It has the battery so far. The phone can last well over a day. Charging-wise, things look good too. Its 25 W fast charger takes the device a little over an hour to go from 0-100%.
There’s a triple camera set up. The primary sensor is a 12 MP wide lens, the secondary sensor is a 12 MP telephoto lens and the third sensor is a 12 MP ultrawide lens. In terms of its front camera, a 32 MP shooter is present.
The 7 Pro comes with a frosted back like the 7T. It’s built similarly too, having a Gorilla Glass 5 body. The phone’s way heavier, though. It’s a 206-gram device. Height-wise, it’s slightly larger than its counterpart.
It comes with the same Fluid AMOLED screen.
Speaking of its display, an impressive 88.1% screen-to-body ratio is by your side. You’ll barely see any bezels and no notch.
It’s an HDR10+ device as well, which is nice.
How could we not talk about how sharp it is? The 7 Pro comes with a 1440 x 3120-pixel display. Don’t forget that its screen is curved too. This gives you a viewing experience to die for.
Enough about its exterior, let’s talk about its inside. You’re met with a Snapdragon chip again. It’s the 855, which gives the 855+ a run for its money.
What version of Android will the phone run? Android 9 out of the box. Like the other phones our list, the 7 Pro is getting the Android 10 update.
Its storage variants are kind of similar to the 7T’s. You can choose from 128 and 256 GBs of space along with 6, 8, or 12 gigs of RAM. Like its brother, its storage can’t be expanded.
The 7 Pro’s battery is 200 mAh larger than the 7T’s. We have no complaints as it can last about a day. We also have no complaints about how fast it charges. In a little over an hour, it’ll be done.
Yet again, we’re met with a triple camera set-up. The primary sensor on the 7 Pro is a 48 MP wide lens. The secondary sensor is an 8 MP telephoto lens and the third sensor is a 16 MP ultrawide lens. Remember how we said it didn’t have a notch? That’s because its selfie camera is motorized. It’s a 16 MP unit.
We love the OnePlus 7T. It’s worthy of the flagship title and a year later, it still delivers.
We’re huge fans of its Snapdragon 855+ chip. The phone not only is a beast, but it looks good too. All around, you’re getting a great device. What more could you want?
