OnePlus created a stir in the crowded smartphone ecosystem with their viral marketing campaign for OnePlus One. They offered competent specs, if not more, and have kept the tradition alive with their subsequent phones, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3.

Launched in November 2016, let us see how their latest, the OnePlus 3T embodies the ”never settle” attitude.

The OnePlus 3T comes with 5.5 inch Optic AMOLED display with 1080p resolution and a very respectable 401 pixels per inch. The screen which has 73.1% screen-to-body ratio (Samsung Galaxy S7 has 5.1 inches with a 72.1% screen-to-body ratio), is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

The 7.3 mm thin dual SIM smartphone weighs in at a healthy 158 grams, and comes in two alluring colours – Soft Gold and Gunmetal.

The metal unibody is crafted using space-grade aluminum alloy and the phone does seem like a cross between an iPhone and HTC One series phone. The Oneplus 3T comes with a USB Type-C connector and has the fingerprint scanner built into the home button in the front like the iPhone.

Running on OnePlus’ Oxygen OS which itself is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the OnePlus 3T positively races along on it’s quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor. Graphics come through an Adreno 530 processor that is supported by the new-highwatermark of 6 GB RAM.

Just reading that, one realises that the phablet has very competent specs. In fact, the 3T comes in two memory variants (64 or 128 GB) and uses UFS 2.0 storage (which is a faster mode storage tech).
The Universal Flash Storage (UFS) storage brings higher data transfer speed and increased reliability to memory storage and is now preferred by OEMs like Samsung as a replacement for eMMCs and SD cards.
The one drawback to this would be the absence of the option of external memory expansion using an SSD card.

A non-removable 3,400 mAh Li-Ion battery is the power source, which allows the device to have approximately 70 minutes of additional power over OnePlus 3. It also comes with the “Dash Charge” technology that enables the device to charge to 60% in 30 minutes.

The OnePlus 3T comes with a 16 megapixel primary camera with a 1.12 µm pixel size and a f/2.0 aperture. The camera uses a Sony IMX298 sensor measuring at 1/2.8″ and is accompanied by a single LED flash.

The improvement in camera specs has actually happened in the front camera, which is now a fixed-focus 16 megapixel unit with a f/2.0 aperture. The camera app comes with RAW support with Panorama, Time-lapse and 4K with slow motion capabilities.

The outcomes of flash sales are a clear indication that the people lap-up OnePlus’ devices. Even thought the 3T is marginally costlier than it’s sibling the OnePlus 3, that didn’t stop people queuing up for it. I guess the specs and performance still seem to be a bargain at the ticket price.
