The OnePlus 8T is better specced in almost every way than the OnePlus 8 it succeeds from earlier this year. It’s got quicker 65W fast charging, a higher 120Hz refresh rate display, a bigger 4,500mAh battery, and an extra camera.

  • For those wondering, the model I was using with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs £549 in the UK, but OnePlus says it won't be sold in the US. - Jon

    • @Bobby Edwards be appreciated cuz One Plus thinks that the US is a slightly more high tier consumer market and they assume that US Americans are affluent enough to buy their premium model with best specs. Lol.

  • Another tech influencer complaining about a phone that can charge up to full in 40 minutes not having wireless charging... As for the monochrome sensor, it's there to help you take better night time videos and pictures. I think that's a pretty handy addition to the camera module and I hope Oneplus keeps it in future.

  • please do not charge your phone over night. it will hurt your battery. i charge my phone every morning with only 20 W charging and its totally finde. 3,5 years later with the phone and I dont have any battery issues unlike other people who charge their phones over night. those people tend to have battery problem 1 year after purchase. so stop charging over night if you dont have some battery modes which will prevent the phone to stay at 100% for 6 hours straight

  • Verge is one of the valuable youtube channels to get technology review. Well they are playing number games since t series n pro model launch ups. Please do say clearly it is useless too spend this many dollars for such a cheap product. I mean they are increasing price of the phone like that actually costs them so much but they are playing with numbers for grabbing higher price for the real first model pricing. Please let lights be on the reason for so many phones from oneplus. Take them down to see their real filthy number games

  • Personally, i do not care about wireless charging cos i use the sony WH1000mx3 which cannot be wirelessly charged; . 65W means i can afford i leave my laptop charger at home. I do not care about IP rating even if it was included. I would have hoped for a headphone jack with improved audio. mmwave is not a prioty but for CDMA customers, it is a must. wifi6 is great and 4G is good enough to get me through the day. Camera is not so special but can be improved with software updates; i care about performance and battery life and it delivers. software is close to stock which is acceptable.

  • I could actually tell the difference between the Monochrome sensor picture and the Monochrome filter. The one using the monochrome sensor is ever so slightly more dramatic with a better dynamic range, the blacks more accentuated (check the columns of the bed), and the color temperature is warmer. I don't know if this is something a filter can do, but I just like it more and I appreciate the presence of that sensor. I had a Huawei P10 previously, which had a monochrome sensor, and I recall a very large percentage of the photos I took with this phone was with the monochrome sensor. I loved it!

  • Do what I do...give them 5-6 month, OnePlus always starts dropping the prices and offering deals. Then, you end up getting this thing for about 60% of the cost new and the technology of any other phone isn't better. Never been a bandwagoner personally. But I switched to an XS Max with the last jailbreak for IOS, and I really have learned to hate Apple once again quickly and their terrible ecosystem and poor apps compared to their Android, simple things like organizing icons, or customization the launcher etc..widgets blah blah...I will take a slightly less camera, which I don't care about, and a much faster charger and better display over any iPhone. At half the price in a few months. Great news, my XS Max will still be absurdly valuable for some unknown reason an probably almost pay for the new OP8T!
