The OnePlus 5T is supposed to replace the OnePlus 5 and the company has confirmed that once stocks clear out, OnePlus will not be making any more OnePlus 5 models. However, does it mean that you should buy the handset? Well, that is not an easy question to answer but we will try to do that here.

 

 

OnePlus smartphones were once famous for selling flagship hardware at unbelievably affordable rates, but those days are long gone. Make no mistake, in nations like India and the company's own home country of China, the phone is still a lot cheaper than other flagships such as the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, Pixel 2, etc. Nevertheless, in America and Canada particularly, the carrier offers and Samsung's own offers make these flagships almost as affordable as the OnePlus 5T, but with better hardware. The OnePlus 5T cannot beat flagships from other more established OEMs in terms of display quality, camera or even water resistance (it doesn't have any!) and if it cannot even beat the price by much, they need to up their game. Nevertheless, if you are in one of those regions where the 5T is a lot cheaper than its competition, it makes for a good buy. By the way, if you already do have an OnePlus 5, do not even bother to buy a 5T because everything about the two phones is identical, except the full-screen display and the back-mounted fingerprint scanner. It might look a bit better, but that facelift doesn't warrant buying a 5T by any logical means.

A YouTuber has just leaked the OnePlus 5T ahead of time in all its full glory! Although the video has been deleted from YouTube officially, Dailymotion still has it so do check it out by clicking on this link right here. You better hurry up because it might not be there for too long now! Also, check out our screenshots just in case the video is deleted by the time you get to it.



One might question the need for upgrading to an OnePlus 5T though, because all the phone really has over the OnePlus 5 is the "edge-to-edge" form factor which in truth, is purely aesthetic. Do not get me wrong, people's buying decisions are indeed influenced greatly by the aesthetics of the phone, but unlike the OnePlus 3T, which came with a faster SD 821 SoC (OnePlus 3 had SD 820), the 5T does not really offer any significant improvement over the OnePlus 5. The fingerprint scanner is at the back now, but I am not sure whether that's an improvement! Everything else from the dual rear cameras to the 1080p AMOLED panel seems to be the same, only with a higher price tag.
