Review of the smartphone OnePlus 5T: look at him
OnePlus 5T won’t even say improved version of OnePlus 5. It’s completely different smartphone, just with the same shell and the platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Otherwise, everything else: brand new 6-inch AMOLED display in the fashionable format 18:9, slightly better camera, built-in facial recognition system (however, OnePlus 5 with the new firmware it is also attached) and a host of other changes – small and big.
At this price OnePlus OnePlus 5 and 5T are the same. Moreover, with the release of the 5T production of the ordinary “five” turned – it looks somewhat like a sophisticated mockery of the buyers instantly obsolete version, but those who know about the traditions of OnePlus and paused for a moment, turned out to be the winner. Or, perhaps, there is no special reason to worry and 5T is not as better than its predecessor? Understand.

Appearance, ergonomics and software
Despite the significant technical differences, 5T outwardly not so very different from OnePlus 5. Yes, because of the use of the screen, which almost completely covers a front panel, it disappeared the key “Home”, and the rear settled a fingerprint scanner, but the General features remain unchanged: and switch sound profiles on the left side, and the contours of the rear panel with the signature engraved plastic inserts for the correct operation of antennas.
Talking about the incredible similarity of this gadget with the iPhone no longer have to – Yes, something OnePlus 5T looks like the iPhone 8, but more or less elusive, outstanding borrowings. So “ten” is not similar at all.
If OnePlus 5 was available in two pretty boring colors (black and gray), the 5T has no such luxury: in the manner of Ford cars of the early twentieth century, these smartphones can be any color under one condition – this color will be black. Not very exciting, but practical.
When this is done the body good the front panel is covered with a slightly curved (2.5 D) tempered glass Gorilla Glass 5, the back and sides are made of metal. The fifth generation of Gorilla Glass you’ll be unpleasant “soft” — it is likely to withstand a drop from a small height, but can be easily covered with scratches and fading. By the way, right out of the box OnePlus 5T provided with a protective film on the screen – it is not very good looking, but protects the smartphone from premature physical aging.
Also included is and a simple silicone case – Yes, you might want to buy something more beautiful and individual, but still similar customer care “budget flagship” is very nice.
T version, despite the difference in half-inch diagonal screen, is not very different size – fractions of a millimeter in each dimension. This, of course, need to thank display format 18:9 (2:1). Use a six inch smartphone with one hand, I still does not work – at all desire, even my long fingers barely reaching the corners, but it fits easily in any pocket, and the hand does not break.
As in OnePlus 5, the new flagship OnePlus need to get used to the control scheme. Mandatory navigation Trinity (“Home”, “Back”, “Menu open applications”) in a virtual view located on the screen — it’s business as usual, but the volume button suddenly Android smartphone is moved to the left side. The power button at the same usual place on the right. You can also find familiar from the iPhone switch sound profiles – in this case with him, though, not two positions, but three. You can individually configure to suit your needs.
The fingerprint scanner is on the back, very far from the camera unit. The location is comfortable, the hand is in a natural position, each time to shift the device in your hand to work with the scanner it is not necessary.
However, to work with him is usually not required. Yes, it is possible to hang the confirmation of payments through Android Pay, but to unlock the default is to use the system of face recognition. She works at the OnePlus really a great obligatory, however, adjusted for normal lighting. In the dark you have to enter a PIN or tap the fingerprint sensor. But most just take a smartphone and calmly work with it – no delays, the percentage of unsuccessful recognition is small.
It should be noted that the competitive advantage of 5T in comparison with their predecessors, the ability to recognize the face of the wearer will not last long. OnePlus has already added this feature and “five”, and plans to add to model 3 and 3T. Technically there are no obstacles – use a normal front camera, without any additional sensors. In theory, this opens up opportunities for manipulation via basic photos, so if you’re worried about the safety of their personal data, it is best to use only the fingerprint, or is a pin — the old-fashioned way.

Operating system – Android 7.1.1 Nougat with a proprietary shell Oxygen OS. At the time of testing the actual version is 4.5.6. It is, in fact, a funny story – the Chinese have successfully updated the OS OnePlus 3/3T 8.0 to Android, but with new models not in a hurry. In fact, buyers pozaproshlogodnie smartphones are in a better position than fans of the home team. Much, of course, is to the user experience does not hit between Nougat and Oreo the difference is not too huge, but the fact is somewhat puzzling.
The shell is exactly the same as in OnePlus 5, major updates in six months for her did not. Neat appearance, written basic applications and forum site One Community as the only pre-installed applications, as well as the window Never Settle instead of Google Now. It’s branded service, located to the left of the main desktop where you can make notes, see the last contacts with whom you have dealt with recently used apps and system information on the smartphone. You can add additional widgets to your taste. It’s nice that it works pretty stable. Judging by the experience with the OnePlus 5, it is rather a pleasant surprise. Critical lockups during testing was not alone to call emergency services smartphone not tried. Is that lose charge in standby mode still could be less active.
After the text was written, it’s the upgrade to 5.0.3 Oxygen in company with Android 8.0 Oreo. Better late than never, but the story is that buyers of the old models OnePlus got the updates sooner than buyers of fresh smartphones, still remain. From the differences in the new shell, select a new gallery for viewing images and slightly different design in General. Also, the developers promised in this “patch” with a weight of 1.68 Gbytes to improve stability – it is hoped that the loss of energy in idle mode will be reduced.
