The OnePlus 3T was launched on November 28 and comes under the category of affordable flagships. It comes at a price (approximately Rs. 30,000) which is relatively cheap compared to what Samsung and Apple or even Google are offering with iPhone 7, Galaxy S7 Edge or the Google Pixel.
Although the price is lesser compared to what other smartphone manufacturers are offering, with the features and specs that the phone is providing, it has already earned the title of "flagship killer."
Thus, Oneplus 3T has been filling big shoes. Moreover, it is an incremental update over its predecessor, with a bigger battery, a better front facing camera, a speedier processor, and some software tweaks.
As such, there many be many reasons to buy the smartphone, but here are the 3 most important reasons which seem fit and could make you want or even buy the phone.
Great Value for Money
Well, as mentioned earlier, the device is priced at around Rs. 30,000, which is a reasonable price compared to what the phone is offering and compared to what other flagship devices cost.
The phone comes with a 5.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at a PPI of 401 pixels per inch. OnePlus 3T also packs a 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 16-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
Talking about the specs, OnePlus has left no stone unturned with a 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 6GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage. The OnePlus 3T runs Android 6.0.1.
So all this for the price said above. I think it is really a good deal.
A “Good-feel” Software Interface
The OnePlus 3 runs on Oxygen OS, developed in-house by OnePlus and runs atop Android Marshmallow. Oxygen OS succeeds dramatically is retaining the soul of stock Android.
This might be an important aspect amongst a sea of handsets running extremely customized and skewed skins atop Android like Samsung's TouchWiz or LeEco's EUI.
However, OnePlus allows the users to modify the interface's colors also if they find the stock Android to be too boring. They can brighten up the look of their menus without a problem.
Even better, you will be able to find some elements of Android Nougat such as the notifications bar or even night mode, which can already be seen on the Honor 8. Android Nougat might be available for the OnePlus 3T before the end of this year.
Built for More
Along with an efficient processor and software interface, the OnePlus 3T is powered by a 3400mAh non-removable battery. The OnePlus 3T might not hold the ultimate benchmark for battery life, but most users will be pleased with the battery- life.
OnePlus had announced that the device can last a full day with just 30 minutes of charging. This won't be the case for an intensive user, but it is possible for a more "traditional" one.
The phone does a decent job but when it come to charging, OnePlus has a weapon in its arsenal in the name of DashCharge. Charging is super fast-noticeably quicker than the Nexus 6P and about twice as fast as the glacial iPhone 7 Plus.
The Device can be charged up to 100% in little over an hour, with a 63% of charge in 30 minutes. This makes up for the rather uninspiring battery life.
All in all, OnePlus 3T stays true to the company's Never Settle approach. With its impressive specs, I am sure the OnePlus 3T will deliver the best user experience.
