2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality
  • Premium, high-end aluminum unibody design that gives the phone a truly elevated aesthetic compared to its predecessors
  • Super sleek at 7.35mm
  • Incredibly fast and accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Chamfered details around the display and charging port catch and reflect light to add to the looks
  • OnePlus' useful notification toggle is carried over from the previous OnePlus device, and is handy as ever
  • Bright, sharp AMOLED display
  • Oxygen OS UI keeps things nice, simple, and close to stock Android, is quite stable, and adds useful touches like the "shelf" homescreen, as well as handy customization options for power users - overall it works very well, and doesn't include any bloatware
  • Breathtaking, and flagship-beating performance backed by powerful hardware and an astounding 6GB of RAM - now goes even one step better with the Snapdragon 821 processor (as opposed to the 820 on OnePlus 3), although the difference between the two will only be noticeable in the heaviest apps/games
  • Excellent heat management - the phone doesn't get hot even when put under high stress levels
  • Very good camera, that compares well with the top flagship phones
  • Camera interface is fast, minimalistic, and intuitive
  • Support for 4K video, as well as time-lapse and slow-motion movies
  • Front camera is even better than the OnePlus 3 (which itself had one of the best front cameras on a phone) and now takes even sharper selfies, even in low light
  • Decent loudspeaker, with good volume levels
  • Excellent audio quality via headphones
  • Excellent battery life, that goes one up even on the already good OnePlus 3 - comfortably lasts the whole day even with heavy use
  • Super quick charging battery (OnePlus calls it "Dash Charging") that can completely charge the phone from 0 to 100% in a little more than 1 hour, beating other "quick charging" phones by a good margin
  • On the whole, while the OnePlus 3 is easily one of the best and most well-rounded Android phones ever made, the OnePlus 3T takes it a step ahead, and makes a great phone even better
  • Premium, stylish, sleek design
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick and can also be used to click images
  • Beautiful, large, immersive Full View Display (Infinity Display), that is great for watching videos
  • Vivo's FunTouch UI is decent, and largely inspired from iOS
  • Seamless performance in day-to-day use, and multitasking and gaming are managed well too
  • Excellent selfie camera with a portrait bokeh effect available for your selfies - one of the best selfie cameras on any phone
  • Rear camera is decent too (though not great) and takes decent images in daylight, producing pleasing colors
  • Decent 1080p videos - come out with good contrast and colors
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day with moderate use
  • The phone also remains cool, even when pushed
  • Comes with dedicated two SIM card slots and a micro SD-Card slot as well (unlike the hybrid approach taken by some of the competition)
2-minute Review [Negatives]

No Major Negatives!

  • Plastic body
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Although daily performance is good, the phone is not meant for power users - there are better performing phones available in this price bracket
  • Rear camera performance in low light is average
  • No fast charging support

  2. This is our new favorite budget flagship Android, but if you have the OnePlus 3, you don't need to upgrade

  3. The OnePlus 3T is a refinement that not only feels timely, but also well-planned and executed.... you'd have a hard time finding a better phone for the price.
