OnePlus 5T top features you should know


Face Unlock

The major difference that the OnePlus 5T came up with in terms of features is the Face Unlock, which is a facial recognition feature as the name suggests. The Face Unlock feature uses the selfie camera instead of the infrared depth-mapping camera used for the Face ID in the iPhone X. Later, the OnePlus 5, 3 and 3T also received the Face Unlock feature via updates. Being a software-based feature, it isn't as secure as the one on the iPhone X, OnePlus users are happy with it as it is faster.

Gaming/DND Mode

The OnePlus 5T comes with the Gaming Mode or DND Mode just like the OnePlus 5. There is an alert slider at the left edge, which can be enabled to block notifications while select applications and games are active. This is a feature, which is a part of the OxygenOS software and can be activated and configured via Settings.
