OnePlus 6T complete Review 2019

Every year, OnePlus makes sure it delivers one of the best Android smartphones that is worth the asking price. It seems to have cracked the premium smartphone market, especially in India, riding on two key factors — aggressive pricing and a good mix of specs.

There’s a smaller, nicer looking and less intrusive notch, for one. More base storage (that comes along with an increased price), and a slightly larger screen area. Oh, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Whether that was enough to sway you towards the OnePlus 6T when it came out last year is up for debate, but OnePlus’ business model means that it usually strives to offer only one model at a time. So think of the 6T as an improved version of the 6.

However, it makes little sense buying a OnePlus 6 and then switching to the 6T (or 5/5T, etc), specifically because of the minute differences involved. Then again, even if you were to do this, the financial hit you’re taking is a lot smaller than if you were to purchase two higher priced phones each year.

Conclusion
OnePlus' success over the years was built on its obsessive focus on speed. The OnePlus 6T delivers the same level of performance as flagships that cost nearly twice as much, and OxygenOS continues to be the best third-party skin around. Sure, the 6T is missing a few features, but for what it costs, you're still getting great value.
