Its a hardware prowess

The OnePlus 3T employs a Snapdragon 821 processor that makes it more powerful and efficient. In comparison to the OnePlus that uses a Snapdragon 820 processor, this one will be much faster in gaming and it will offer many other additional benefits.

There's ample storage space

When it comes to storage, the OnePlus 3T comes in two variants and one of these variants has 128GB of default storage space. If you like to store a lot of files in your phone, then you need not be bothered about space crunch anymore.

Android Nougat is yet to arrive

Earlier, OnePlus assured to roll out Android 7.1 Nougat update to the OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones by the end of this year. However, the company hasn't used the latest iteration of Google's mobile OS on its latest smartphone.

Micro SD card slot isn't there

Of course, there is 128 GB of default storage, but it would have been great if the manufacturer incorporated a micro SD card for expandable storage capacity in the smartphone. Its always nice to have a micro SD card slot as it will help in keeping a backup and transferring files better devices.

Water is still an enemy

Unlike the other flagship smartphones that exist in the market, the OnePlus 3T is not water resistant. Despite the fact that waterproofing is still not a priority for a majority of the smartphone users, it is an important aspect that will keep the phone protected from unexpected water damage.

Its more expensive this time

OnePlus smartphones have always been appreciated for packing all the possible high-end specifications and features despite being priced reasonably. However, the OnePlus 3T is expensive with price tags of Rs. 29,999 and Rs. 34,999 respectively.
