I would like to start my review with the reason why I bought exactly this smartphone.In advance I read some product tests or watched the corresponding videos on YouTube.The lack of features was always the reason for my criticism. It lacks wireless charging, a certification against splash water, a SD card slot for memory expansion and a jack for headphones.I was aware of all this before I bought it and I won’t criticize it in my review, because:– wireless charging is eyewash. Cable is still necessary, you put the mobile phone on the charging station, which is connected to a power outlet with a power cable. Where is that wireless? Especially since this technology fills up a smartphone with energy slower than normal via a plug connection. In my opinion this is not progress, but another method that looks cooler and offers no added value. I’m really glad that Oneplus has continued to focus on improving warp-charging.– Smartphones are usually not usable when the display is wet and I want to keep it dry for this reason alone. My previous smartphones didn’t have that and all of them have lasted for years, although a few raindrops have sometimes landed on them. This certification is nice to have, but not a criterion for me to influence a purchase decision. I ordered the 128 GB version and always got by with the predecessor. If someone should have the need to store a lot of movies and music on his smartphone, of course he needs an appropriate expansion. For me, in a time when almost every content is streamed, a memory expansion is not necessary.– I only own wireless headphones and for this reason it doesn’t bother me at all that the 7t has no jack plug. But I can understand that especially audiophile users always need a cable connection to listen to music. There are USB C adapters for this purpose, which do not cost a fortune.
My predecessor models are the Galaxy S 1 and S 2, as well as the Oneplus 1 and currently the 3t. I have partly lived through the hype around the Oneplus 1. Oneplus has done a lot of things right so far. I bought the One still with Cyanogenmod and was thrilled how easy it was to rotate. At the moment it runs Android 9 (lineage), unfortunately without the Google Apps, because Google does not allow the use of the Gapps on custom roms anymore.I use my smartphones a lot for reading news, internet research, writing news, listening to music, watching videos and occasionally for taking pictures. So I have my smartphone in my hands a lot and just for this reason I’m interested in mobile technology and I try to keep up to date there and I also go to Saturn or Media Markt to check out the news on the smartphone market.Why am I writing this? Meanwhile there are cheap smartphones from Xaomi and Realme which are equal to the Oneplus 7t in terms of hardware and price. But all of them do not have Oxygen OS. What Oneplus makes out of Stock Android is so fine and sensible that I don’t feel like dealing with other interfaces. Especially since I have looked at the user interfaces of various smartphones in the mentioned stores and couldn’t convince myself of any of them (I couldn’t look at the devices from Realme yet).Gest control, the shelf, Zen mode and the automatic up and down of the smartphone which can be planned in advance are only 4 features which are not combined in this combination on other devices. The update promise of Oneplus to provide the smartphones with system updates for at least 2 years and with security updates for 3 years, will be kept! This is very important to me!!
The question remains open, why I strike now. I have the 3t for almost 3 years, further updates are unfortunately not in sight, it still runs absolutely stable and will surely take a meaningful place with me. You can also use such smartphones as a surveillance camera for your 4 walls in the network.I was already toying with the idea of buying the 7, but was not so impressed by the features, the jump to the 7 Pro was too big for me, which I did not consider because of the size, the price and the for me silly Pop Up Selfie camera.And since in autumn always the t model comes out, I had the hope that here the 7 is drilled properly and the 7t will not be far away from a Pro model. And so it is. Triple camera, 90 Hz display and the newer chip were the things I wanted compared to the 7 model.
But now for the actual review:I was able to test the 7t extensively in the last 2 days. I won’t go into the technical specs here, they are well known and easy to find on the net – I’m going more into the technical leap from the 3t to the 7t. Because this is what is important for me, I don’t only want to buy a smartphone because my old one is not updated by the manufacturer anymore, but also or especially because the innovations in software and hardware make the new investment worthwhile.
Display: regarding sharpness and brightness there is practically no clear improvement visible to the naked eye compared to the 3t. Disappointing.
Tempo: The 90 Hz, the new processor and the 8 GB Ram make themselves felt, everything runs very smoothly, nothing sticks or jerks.But that was to be expected with the specs and is better than the performance of the Snapdragon 821 from the 3t, but also not outstanding.Neutral.
Camera: A clear leap forward. The night mode is great, the macro mode is exactly my taste and otherwise the 7t shoots clean and crisp, sharp, detailed pictures.I am very convinced of the camera and it is a clear step forward.
Oxygen OS: That’s already great. OnePlus has consistently developed the system further, e.g. added a reading mode and drilled out the Zen mode and kept the proven things. There’s a lot more to discover.Full enthusiasm with me.
Loudspeakers: Ui, strong. Super, so it must be the progress. For a smartphone very voluminous, very clear and also brings out clear tones at high volume. Top! br>>br>Battery: In 90 Hz mode the battery lasts approx. 20% longer than the 3t. Warp Charge is really fixed, but also only slightly faster than the Desk Charge on the 3t.The expected minimum of progress has been achieved in my opinion. It is simply not well thought out. The sensor works just as well or badly as the physical one from the 3t (rather slower) but it makes one more step necessary. With the 3t I only had to touch the sensor when the display was black and the display was unlocked.At 7t I have to activate the sensor by moving the smartphone or tapping on the display to make the sensor visible.This is a clear step back to the 3t. Here, an additional proximity sensor should have been installed or a sensor with standby function should have been installed.Very awkward and disappointing.
Conclusion: The 7t is definitely a great device, but unfortunately not as innovative compared to a 3 years older device as one might expect. I will keep it, but more because of the fact that the 3t doesn’t get any updates anymore and custom roms without Google Apps come along and not because of the news.That’s why only 4 out of 5 stars.
Update after 2 weeks of use:Some things about the software don’t work as they should. For example, double tapping the display to activate it only works every 2nd time. Even if you move it, it will often remain inactive. The battery drained much faster than the 3t.That is really bad! Therefore a star trigger and therefore only 3 of 5
Super execution! Concerning the withdrawal of the second star I have to say that I also observed this problem. This problem is also known in the community. First I attributed it to deep sleep and that with it the service for typing on the display as well as the wake on raise goes to sleep. Press the power button once and it works again. Wrong thought … It also happened after half an hour lying in the evening. During the day it works perfectly at all times, which is why it does not work at times: It depends on the light conditions I came up with. Apparently the surrounding brightness has to be right (movements have to be detected or something …?) for the display to react. I bet that the missing reaction always occurs in diffuse or dark light conditions …? If it occurs again, then illuminate it with another light source (flashlight, light bulb, …) directly and you will see that it wakes up immediately… I know that this explanation is not really satisfying but at least it is a verifiable error and not an arbitrary error. OnePlus should definitely work on this because it really does not have to be. But now that I know it I can at least live with it. LG
So much for the QI store. In the household I see it exactly the same as the reviewers, but when we are mobile, this form of charging is valuable for me in my vehicle, my car has a QI charging station in the storage compartment, cable tangle in the vehicle, goodbye, just put it in the compartment and be happy that the reception of the antenna is also outside and thus better.
Christian nonsense. QI-charging is a) inefficient because of the high charging losses, b) it is slow, c) you put a source of electromagnetic interference in your living space. If you find plugging in a USB-C cable annoying, do not argue objectively. Slipping off would be a masterpiece of motor skills as well!
QI store is supposed to be eyewash..soso! You save yourself the annoying plugging in of the USB C cable and if you slip off etvl. you get a scratch in the frame. QI loading is sometimes the best Must Have Future of a flagship.
Ba-dum-tss! your comment helped me with the choice.
If you are willing to spend a higher amount on a smartphone, you will first have Apple, Google, Huawei and Samsung on your screen. Only because of the many good test reports at the moment, in specialist publications and on the Internet, I hesitantly considered buying a smartphone of this brand. After weeks of research, I decided to buy the new 7t from OnePlus.
Exactly in advance: I have not regretted the purchase and am extremely satisfied with the device!
The phone is excellently manufactured, the buttons are great to use and give a nice, haptically crisp feedback when pressed. The back of the phone is made of matt glass that feels velvety and is also much less sensitive to fingerprints. Exactly as I imagine and wish.
I would like to refrain from listing all the technical specifications of the phone in detail, which everyone can read up on the net. Just so much about the technology: The built-in components are all first-class and represent in almost every respect what is currently possible. The main processor is the latest Qualcomm 855+ with increased clock frequency, the GPU is an Adreno 640 with even higher clock speed, and the memory is a fast UFS-3. 0, the sensors of the main and front camera come from Sony (IMX 586 + IMX 471) and the display was developed together with Samsung and is also manufactured by Samsung.
In practice, the combination of the 855+ with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB UFS-3.0 memory results in rocket-like performance in every respect. There are simply no delays or jerking, no matter whether playing computationally intensive games or other applications, which is hardly surprising given the Antutu benchmark of 480,000.
Internet reception as well as the reception and call quality during phone calls are flawless. The stereo loudspeakers produce a pleasant and sufficiently loud sound during hands-free talking. This also applies to the reproduction of film sound, audio books or music. Of course, you can’t compare the sound reproduction via mobile phone speakers with the reproduction via a correspondingly high-quality headset or a good Bluetooth speaker, but the speakers offer a good and clean sound despite the physical limitations of mobile phone speakers.>br>The display is a dream. I previously had a mobile phone that was also equipped with an OLED display but with a QHD+ resolution of 2880×1440 pixels. The 7t has ‘only’ 2400×1080 and offers nevertheless a better picture impression in every respect. With the display size of a smartphone, a QHD+ pixel density is a rather theoretical advantage anyway, if the normal viewing distance to the screen is appropriate. I noticed this quickly in my predecessor mobile phone and set the resolution to HD, as the battery life was noticeably extended and I didn’t notice any loss of screen content. Due to the refresh rate of 90 Hz, contents on the screen are displayed noticeably smoother and clearer when scrolling. This is a feature which is a big advantage for the user.
I had the biggest concerns about the form factor of the phone before I bought it. 6.55 inch and 20:9 is already a word. But now, after days of real use, I am thrilled. The phone fits great in the hand and feels lighter than comparable sized models. Especially when watching movies on Amazon Prime or Netflix, the size and form factor of the display is a real added value for me. By the way, streaming with Full-HD resolution is possible without any problems due to the ‘Widefine Level 1’ certification. Colors, contrast as well as the black level and viewing angle stability are on an exceptionally high level due to the very good OLED display. There is also no reason to criticize the brightness. It is said to have been increased once again compared to its predecessor. I can’t check this, but even outdoors I can still see and read everything on the display very well. Normally the brightness is adjusted between 45 and 60 percent of the maximum possible. The pictures I took with the cameras are perfect and convincing. Image noise is not noticeable in good light conditions. Sharpness, colours and contrasts are excellent in relation to the price range and even fine details are captured extremely satisfactorily. Only in very poor lighting conditions or sometimes when zooming in, other current top-of-the-range smartphones (Apple, Huawei and Samsung from my circle of friends and family) were able to deliver slightly better picture quality for some motifs. I’m talking about nuances that only become visible when you look at the pictures on a larger screen and specifically compare them. What I wrote about the main cameras also applies to the selfie camera. It provides some absolutely respectable results and also what is taken in the selectable portrait mode is flawless. Also, I cannot complain in the least about the recording quality of the videos. The camera menu is very tidy and thus pleasantly comfortable to use. Overall, I am more than convinced of the camera quality. If you want to enlarge pictures to A1 size, or shoot professional videos for television, you should not expect a mobile phone camera to be the right recording device for this.
Android 10 is already included in delivery. This is slightly modified by the user interface of OnePlus (Oxygen-OS). So you are very close to Stock-Android which I like quite well. I also like the fact that the system is not cluttered with permanently installed crapware. I still can’t understand why many manufacturers of Android phones believe they can pretend to offer their mature customers non-erasable apps, which have to be grafted with goods paid for with the customer’s money. If I want any app on my mobile phone, I am quite capable of installing it on my own.
The missing features, which were evaluated as negative in most tests, are not relevant for me. The missing jack plug is not important to me, because I am currently using only Bluetooth headphones. If I still want to use wired headphones with a jack plug, this is always possible with an adapter. I am also basically not interested in contactless charging, especially as in this case an extra charging station is still due. This has to have a fixed place in the own flat and always be connected to the power supply system so that this supposedly big advantage can be used at all. Last but not least, charging is still much slower with this technology. The possibility to expand the memory with a SD memory card is of course always an advantage, but in the past years I have managed with 64 GB without problems. If you plan to dip your mobile phone in chlorine-free fresh water, or take a shower or bath with it (without using cleaning gel or other additives), you should make sure that you have IP68 certification. Since neither of these is planned by me, the splash water protection of the 7t is completely sufficient for me.
Finally a few words about the ‘Warp Charge 30T’ charging technology from OnePlus. The manufacturer states that 30 minutes is enough to charge the battery to 70%. I have tried this with a nearly empty battery and can only confirm this. The charging performance of this technology is brutal! After about 30 minutes, the power supply pressed enough juice into the battery to get me through the day with my user profile. With my normal use (2h internet/mail, 2h watching movies, playing a game or listening to music and about 20 minutes of phone calls as well as taking some photos or a short video, the battery lasts 1.25-1.5 days. The display is always at 90Hz. If you screw it down to 60 Hz, the battery has a slightly higher charge level in the evening. In some tests it was written that the battery should last a good hour longer at 60 Hz. I would say that this could be true in terms of feeling, but in practice it always depends on the actual use. In any case, this has no relevance for me, because the advantages of 90 Hz more than compensate the pseudo disadvantage of the increased power consumption. Especially if you don’t have to save electricity anyway, because you can get through the day safely.
Anyone who wants to acquire an extremely high-quality smartphone in terms of workmanship, design and the technology used, in conjunction with special features that you don’t get from other manufacturers and which offer direct and immediate added value for the user, should definitely take a look at this phone. Not to mention the much lower price compared to other devices of the so-called premium segment.
I hope that my review has provided useful information that is helpful for any kind of purchase decision.
At the end of 2017 I made my first experiences with the company OnePlus and bought the highly praised OP 5T which has served me very well ever since. Since I like to be up to date with the latest technical standards, I decided to order the 7T through the direct sales department of OP. The 7T is delivered in a nice, red but meanwhile strongly grown packaging. Tidy as usual, the good piece incl. a 1m long charging cable and the Warp30 Power Adapter as well as a transparent protective cover and pre-applied protective foil is in the box. So unpack quickly and switch on the good piece. The large display, which covers almost the entire front, is bright and sharp and allows you to comfortably go through the usual setup dialog. I also took the opportunity to migrate my data from the OP 5T to the new phone with the OnePlus Switch app, a very convenient process that is done very quickly via a WiFi Direct connection.The first time I scroll through my app launcher and when visiting websites, I notice how smooth the scrolling is thanks to the 90Hz technology, a circumstance to which one gets used very quickly and then finds the classic 60Hz a bit jerky (on the 5T). Of course, the higher refresh rate also requires a little more power, so energy-saving foxes can also switch to the classic 60Hz. Anyway, it’s noticeable that there isn’t even the slightest jerk and the ‘thinking times’ when opening apps are surprisingly short, thanks to UFS 3.0 memory! I’m a bit angry that the memory requirements of the system have increased significantly compared to the 5T, the system partition needs 27GB which means that only 99GB of 128GB are actually usable, which is 6GB less than the Android Pie Rom on the 5T. Whether this huge reserve is really necessary will surely be shown with upcoming updates, so it’s a pity that in Europe there is no 256GB variant without import.After I was busy with the setup for some time now, the battery wanted to be charged for the first time. Since I was now especially curious about the new Warp30 quick charge function, I took a look at the charge current in comparison to the old 5T with the app ‘AccuBattery’. With a start of 13% battery level, an amazing 5800mAh charge current is stuffed into the device, which results in an insane charging speed. A complete charge took about 70 minutes, from 13-70 I would say about 25-30min (start 11:04 at 13%, status 11:37 87%). In fact, this means a whole evening’s electricity in just under 15 minutes, which is a considerable, noticeable increase compared to the 3500mAh that was already flowing before. To save the battery I got used to not charging overnight, now the time tomorrow after getting up to go to work is enough for me to charge the device completely.Another important aspect for me is the camera. It was so semi great when the 5T was released, but the quality has increased a lot compared to the beginning and in combination with GCam it is quite good. The 7T comes with an additional third camera and should score with the possibility of a telephoto and a wide angle lens. The new possibilities that result from this are already great and especially the possibility of wide angle shots is great for group photos or nature shots. Noticeable here is the much worse noise ratio of the two additional lenses compared to the main lens, which takes quite low-noise pictures with a good F1.65 under decent lighting conditions. In practice, this means decent pictures with the main camera even in darker surroundings. If one uses a double zoom or wide angle, a clearly increased image noise is noticeable. But apart from that, I like the pictures very much and even better than with the 5T, for me a clear upgrade, especially because of the greater variety when taking pictures. I also really like the possibility of the optical image stabilizer when filming video. The combination of the three lenses absolutely compensates for slight jerking of the hands, a clear difference compared to when the function is switched off. I also like the quality of the video very much and possibilities of time lapse or slow motion are also possible. Other great features are the integrated fingerprint sensor in the front under the display and the still extremely fast face unlocking, which takes only a fraction of a second to unlock the device. The fingerprint sensor doesn’t work as fast and reliable as the old one in the 5T on the backside, but the position on the front side and the very reliable function makes it fun.After I’ve been raving a lot so far, I now come to a few downsides. One of them is the missing notification LED, which I already knew before. With the 5T I already got to know the function of the Ambient (inactivity display), which informs about the status of incoming messages, time etc. when touching or lifting the device. If the 5T still worked perfectly, I unfortunately have to notice dropouts under the current OOS 10.0.4. Mostly the function fails after some time of use, especially if apps are open in the background and the display is turned off. This is a bit annoying, because then the lock screen has to be turned on and does not inform in power saving mode. It’s also annoying if you just want to check if messages have arrived and have to pick up the device again. But I am quite confident that this function will be properly maintained. At first I thought that the problem would depend on the restoration of the backup, but I can rule this out. Even with a completely new system, the function fails again after a while. Furthermore the PocketMode was removed, which avoids wrong entries in the trouser pocket, I almost locked my device on the way. I’m not quite satisfied with the battery life, I always get at least 4-5 hours screen-on-time, but the 5T brought a bit more performance, especially in standby. Since I’m still in the running-in phase and have re-set the system several times, I don’t want to judge this point conclusively yet.Only interesting for people who want to rotate:On this topic I can say that there is currently a simple possibility to rotate the device without TWRP Recovery. To do this, the bootloader must be unlocked first, which results in the deletion of all data on the device. Afterwards the root can be brought to the device via Magisk and a modified boot image. This works perfectly for me. Please note that the widevideo level of the device is changed to L3 after the bootloader is open. This means you lose the HD support of Netflix, which can only be restored by closing the bootloader. Also, some apps may not work, but for most functions Magisk Hide Root works quite well, e.g. Google Pay is possible with it.All in all I am very satisfied with the purchase of the OnePlus 7T and it is a worthwhile upgrade to the 5T. The great 90Hz display, the in my eyes very chic design with a nice glass back and the really fabulous hardware equipment complete the overall impression. The camera is also a significant upgrade for me, but is still behind e.g. the Huawai P30 pro or the new iPhone. Thanks to the moderate price of 599€ compared to other flagships, you don’t do anything wrong in my eyes and have a nice, fast and dual SIM smartphone. There is still a star deduction, because I find problems in the ambient display functionality as disturbing and hope that this will be solved as soon as possible. From experience, the software on the side of OnePlus is very good.All in all I give 4 stars with the future option to 5. If there are any questions, you can leave them here as a comment, I will try to answer questions promptly and add to the review.
Edit 11/04/2019: In the meantime I have also got myself a 9H tempered glass as display protection. I think this one is very good, my review about it should also be published soonIf you liked the review, please show it to me by clicking on ‘Useful’.#
Edit 11/04/2019: In the meantime I have also got myself a 9H tempered glass as display protection. I think this one is very good, my review about it should also be published soon:
First of all, I should mention that I had very bad experiences with Android devices before through the bank.Dh. I was an iPhone owner.But after my last two iPhones with the same symptoms and absolutely the same course greased up when I installed a new update, I wanted to get away from apple. Especially as the prices are getting crazier and crazier.Many will say: charge your backup…that’s right, but that’s exactly what didn’t work…but now to the essential…
I’ve had the OnePlus for 3 months now and I’m really excited about it, in terms of battery, handling, value, speed, overheating under heavy load, connection- and I admit that I was sceptical at the beginning, because at this time of purchase, the Huawei story was not over yet. But this was solved after thorough research on the internet (mainly forums) and I am very happy that I bought this mobile phone.
The optics/handlingI personally like very much how the mobile phone lies in the hand (no big hands). But also only after you have a cover around it, because without it is a bit too slippery. But a cover doesn’t cost much if you don’t like the one that comes with it. The workmanship and the materials feel very high quality and very thoroughly and carefully installed. No light spots in the screen, it sits bombproof on the case, there are no gaps. The display doesn’t feel stuck in any whiteness, like with the Huawei Mate.My personal optical favourite on the mobile phone is actually the arrangement and position of the cameras.
The technology/use.First of all, hats off to this battery.Half charged myself, I can go on until the next day with the same use/load of the mobile phone. I.e. playing games, chatting, taking pictures, surfing, etc.Even with a heavy load the mobile phone doesn’t get a bit warm and runs smoothly.I was also sceptical about the quick charge function at first, because the spirits are divided, whether this is a curse or a blessing for the mobile phones, because the battery is then more heavily used. But this has been rejected. The battery is and remains top and the phone heats up little to not at all. The power supply gets a little warm but that’s normal because that’s where all the action happens.The camera is great in any day/night situation. The colours in the pictures are very sharp and offer a great contrast, no matter what colour spectrum. If you have little experience with physics and/or photography, I recommend to take a look at it, because it helps to take top pictures at night, but it is not a must. A little bit of trial and error also helps ,)The screen reacts very fast and there is no delay when scrolling.Speed, reception, settings for the mobile phone or apps are very good to brilliant.But there are two shortcomings for me when it comes to speed. Not the system performance, because it is outstanding.But with the automatic screen rotation and the adaptive light adjustment.I have to start 3-4 attempts to bring the image from vertical to horizontal. The other way round, funnily enough, maybe 1-2 times. You should continue to work on the haptics.The light adjustment has sometimes the wrong reaction for me and also reacts either too fast or sometimes too slow. Here, too, there is an urgent need for improvement.The sound during playback and the display leave nothing to be desired. The pictures and movies are pin sharp and the sound is really strong and clear at the same time. Of course, this is also dependent on the headphones or speakers.
Optional disturbance factorsThe lowest volume during phone calls is a bit loud. If you have good ears, you may be able to hear what the person on the other end is saying. OnePlus meant too well here. Apart from that, the volume control for music or movies is very gradual and really ok.The phone has hung up 3 times so far, but! without going out or creating a black screen. That speaks then again for the quality of the mobile phone in such situations. The hang ups were never long.
My conclusionFor the technology, the price and what you get for it on the mobile phone, OnePlus has earned a lot of praise.Whoever ignores the mentioned weaknesses (I can’t and don’t want to name them), which I can only guess, will get a mobile phone that will give you a lot of joy and fun.The only, for me annoying disadvantage is that on youtube there is much more advertising. Whether in videos or on the Frontpage. That was significantly less with apple.However, this doesn’t diminish the joy I have every day with the mobile phone.However, OnePlus should work on the weaknesses mentioned in the text, because – and you have to be so honest – other manufacturers do it better (see automatic rotation or light adjustment).
In this slightly longer review I would like to share my first experiences with the OnePlus 7t with you. First:If you only want to read the pros and cons and a conclusion, you should scroll down directly 😉
First of all: I last owned the OnePlus 6T and was very satisfied with it… The phone is now being passed on in the family – I treat myself to the very fresh OnePlus 7t Attention: I compare the 7T with the 6T
Here is the review of the new Top Smartphone (OnePlus 7t – 8GB RAM + 128GB in ‘Frosted Silver’)
## Design / Haptic / Case ##The new Smartphone fits perfectly in the hand, just like its predecessor It’s not too big, but a one-handed operation is, like with the 6T, already not that easy.The case has grown minimally on the data sheet, but this is not noticeable. The diagonal grows from 6.4′ to 6.55′ (more right away in the ‘Display’ section)The phone is super processed, it feels absolutely valuable. I haven’t noticed any quality defects on the case.Design: is of course like so much of a matter of opinion… I like it very much!5 of 5 stars !
## Display ##The display measures a diagonal of 6.55′The pixel density is now also a bit higher, we are now at 403ppiDisplay is razor sharp, just like its predecessor. This model is now a 90-Hertz AMOLED Display – first class !! The touch input is absolutely smooth, the fingerprint sensor is reliable as usual (but I use the unlock function mostly via face recognition)5 of 5 stars !
## Hardware ##OnePlus has improved its CPU only a little bit.Here is now a Snapdragon 855 Plus running (in the 6T it was still the 845)As already mentioned above, everything runs very smoothly, I haven’t noticed any ‘hooks’ so far. The main memory is big enough, the internal memory (for me) anyway.The operating system is as known nice and tidy and clear… other vendors add many (useless) apps. 5 of 5 stars !
## Camera ##The camera in the 6T did not convince me so much.Pictures often did not look sharp, you had to hold the device very still.In addition, in my opinion, the shutter release took too long to take pictures of moving situations. OnePlus has now given the 7T a triple camera.br>The camera has improved significantly, but it doesn’t come close to the top photo models such as the Huawei P30 Pro.br>I am absolutely satisfied with this camera.br>4.5 of 5 stars!
## Battery ##In such a Ferrari belongs of course also an accordingly strong battery 😉 The capacity has increased again a little bit, but this model has also a higher resolution display than the 6T. I can’t give you a reliable experience about the battery life yet… for that the mobile phone is too new and I’m still too playful.But I think that the device will last LOCKER one day or even longer in regular everyday life (depending on the usage behaviour).The battery can be charged very fast. I have not measured the time, but according to research the battery should be charged from zero to 70% within half an hour.That is a very good value !Attention: Wireless charging is not (yet) supported in this model either.4 of 5 stars, because I already miss wireless charging! Br> POSITIVE: Super razor sharp display Br>+ First-class hardware with super performance Br>+ design Br>+ price-performance Br>+ DUAL-SIM capable Br> Br> Br> Negative: – no IP certification (not dust and splash-proof)– no jack plug (for headphones)– no adapter cable (for headphones)– no wireless charging
NEUTRAL:0 memory not expandable (the 128gb is fully sufficient for me) Br>FAZIT: I can recommend the OnePlus 7T without reservation! Br>The price is absolutely fair in today’s comparison. Br> The 6T was already very good, the 7T is a good bit better. Br>Display, hardware and OS are absolutely world class!
I give full 5 stars !
If you liked my review, I’m happy about a click on the button ‘Useful’.Thanks a lot.
You should also mention that the f& memory is much too small for the price, 128 GB are given internally but in reality I have only 89 GB left with my new op 7t (not bought at amazon because it is too expensive) and I have set up the system completely new /clean, so the question is what are the 40 GB occupied with except the system ???? Otherwise hammer cell phone for me and the contra points are for me whining on a high level.
Great review from you/them about the OnePlus 7T, thanks for that. I still have the 6T, with which I am also very satisfied, and have been looking at the 7T (without Pro), and am now even more sure thanks to this review that I will buy the 7T.
In this somewhat longer review I would like to share my first experiences with the OnePlus 7t with you. First of all:If you only want to read the pros and cons and a conclusion, you should scroll down directly 😉
First of all: I last owned the OnePlus 6T and was very satisfied with it… The mobile phone is now being passed on in the family – I treat myself to the very fresh OnePlus 7t Attention: I compare the 7T with the 6T
## Design / Haptic / Case ##The new Smartphone fits like its predecessor perfectly in the hand. It’s not too big, but a one-handed operation is, like with the 6T, already not that easy.The case has grown minimally on the data sheet, but this is not noticeable. The diagonal grows from 6.4′ to 6.55′ (more right away in the ‘Display’ section)The phone is super processed, it feels absolutely valuable. I haven’t noticed any quality defects on the case.Design: is of course like so much of a matter of opinion… I like it very much!5 of 5 stars !
I buy a new phone every year. Always the upper middle class in the hope to find a mobile phone, what a fair price to find a top smartphone. Up to now there have always been clear criticisms which in my opinion did not justify the price. Now to the Oneplus 7T.Only from the reviews and videos I had the hope to have found the right Smartphone. I can finally agree with that. Before I had Huawei and Honor, which were already good phones. Then Nokia 8 and HTC U12+. Both had good advantages, but neither had the certain something. I will not go into these phones now, but describe the Oneplus 7T.What really excites me is the charging of the phone. I no longer charge my Oneplus mobile phone overnight. It is enough to plug it into the socket from time to time. It charges so incredibly fast, you have to see that. So I understand Oneplus very well that you put your emphasis on this and do not offer wireless charging. In 30 minutes I can charge my mobile phone enough to get through the day.The battery is not overly proportioned, but it is enough. A little more would be great, but maybe then with the 8 version. Which is very good: If you have little reception, the intensity is lowered and the battery is spared. Since we are at work in a well insulated building, this feature saves me 30% battery per day. Super function quite inconspicuous, but for some a great enrichment.The speed of the mobile phone is indescribable. With the Snapdragon 855+ and the 90 Heart the phone is so fast, I think even the top dogs Iphone, Huawei and Samsung can’t keep up. You have to try it to believe that. I can reassure opponents of the Notch. Back when I bought my Nokia, one of the reasons was that it did not have a Notch. With the Oneplus 7T, the Notch is totally inconspicuous and is hidden in situations where it might bother you. Don’t worry, it won’t bother you.Updates and Android version is always very up to date and not defaced by unnecessary (advertising) programs. Clear advantage.Camera Mega good. My HTC has already made unbelievably good pictures. But the Oneplus 7T makes even better ones. Don’t be irritated by comments about Iphone 11 and Huawei taking better pictures. This is so inconspicuously better, nobody needs it. You will be satisfied with the photos of the 7t.Besides that, the mobile phone is great fun, you hardly want it to lie out of your hand.I still have one point of criticism, which I miss very much.With my Honor I could display notifications in different colors, with my HTC at least in one color. With the Oneplus this function does not exist. This is my point of criticism. So I could silently display whether and who wrote me. This was very advantageous in some situations. The size is also worth mentioning. The mobile phone has with 6,55 a stately size. Who is not sure here should have tested it at least once. I have relatively big hands and get along with it well, but nevertheless, I could imagine that a number smaller would also be OK. br> But who can live with the 2 small minus points will be inspired by the mobile phone. The total package for this price is unbeatable in my opinion. I have also considered ordering one of these many China Oneplus 7T, but decided against it because of warranty, payment processing etc. I regret not having saved 100 €, because I am completely satisfied with the phone.
Even after a long way off and several test reports, I decided to move away from the Huawei-P20 to the Oneplus-7T. The data transfer from the Huawei to the OnePlus-7T turned out to be quite easy via the app ‘OnePlus-Switch’.The Oneplus-7T is undoubtedly a quite high-quality device, at least concerning display technology, processor power and photography. In this concern, there is actually nothing to pass. The 60/90 Hz display is very fluid and delivers bright colors on demand (can be adjusted in 3 steps), the processor performance is easily sufficient for modern 3D games (I tested ‘Cover Fire’ among others) and the amazingly good photo and video quality of the Oneplus-7T makes a compact camera superfluous (small clown photo from dimly lit interior enclosed).The fingerprint sensor hidden in glass is also very fast and precise. Stereo sound is also provided, and if you want it to be quite loud without distortion. Regarding WLAN I can only say that I have about 38Mbyte/s data stream to the OnePlus 7T near the router. Which makes me very satisfied. The 128 Gbyte memory space is certainly sufficient for most things, but I would have liked 256 Gbyte for this T-version, as I already have about 30 Gbyte for operating system and apps. Reason beside some small unpleasantness (like the battery doesn’t last a whole day in normal use), is especially for me the Bluetooth function, which is very insufficient in the CAR area (my car is 2 years old). It is hardly possible to establish a hands-free telephone connection properly, let alone to listen to music without interruptions via Bluetooth. The problem occurs for me for the first time and only with this Smartphone. After a lot of research, it seems to have been a weakness of some Oneplus devices, even of the older generation. This is really disappointing for such a modern device, even if it could be due to an incompatibility only with my car sound system. Tips of the service, like deleting the Bluetooth cache, re-connecting the device etc. do not help. Here I have to wait for a One-Plus-Update or ask my garage if they can update my car sound system accordingly (?). My 6 month old Bluetooth headphones are supported by the OnePlus-7T without any problems. Most users will probably be spared this Bluetooth problem and thus get a top device, which can keep up with a Samsung S10 or iPhone11 (we also have in the family)…
Supplement, after about 3 weeks of use:Basically I’m satisfied, the camera is very good and the Oneplus7-T is fast, has a great display and is fun anyway.However, I would like to mention some more small anomalies. I have noticed difficulties with the unlocking from time to time. Not always the camera recognizes me or the fingerprint sensor appears and I have to unlock the device with the keyboard. After updating the Car-Sync software in the car, the connection via Bluetooth works a bit better. But there are still interruptions, e.g. during music playback. Therefore I use a USB stick in the car for such a thing again. 2-3 system updates have been made available for the Smartphone in the meantime and I hope for constant improvement. But basically 3 stars would be too bad for me because of the mentioned shortcomings. Up to now I had something with every Smartphone… Therefore I still have about 4 stars for this device.
More than satisfied. For 499€, in my opinion by far the best smartphone in this price range. Personally, I don’t need the very expensive flagships, because the additional features don’t give me the benefit that would justify a nearly double price. Wireless Charging had my old Galaxy S8. I used to charge 90% of my phone via cable anyway, but now with the 7T it’s 100%, and charges faster via cable anyway. I don’t need IP certification either. The phone can withstand simple rain, just like any other smartphone in the history of smartphones. I don’t plan to go swimming with my mobile phone and I probably won’t go swimming in the lake either. The fact that it doesn’t have a QHD display doesn’t bother me either. Basically, my Galaxy S8 had a QHD display and when I switched to FHD on it, I already noticed the difference. But with the Oneplus I don’t mind at all and it still looks very sharp. Also the FHD display increases the battery life. I get about 7 1/2 to 8h Display-On-Time with 90Hz. My S8 has recently given up the ghost at not even 4h. Also, the flute of 15% battery overnight is finally over. I don’t mind that the mobile phone doesn’t have the most outstanding cameras now. Normally, if I don’t want to take a quick snapshot, I always use my Canon. I rarely take photos with my smartphone, because if you take more ambitious photos, the quality of smartphone photos is in my opinion far from matching the quality of good real cameras. Basically the camera does not take bad photos. The main camera is good to use. The wide-angle camera pictures lose sharpness in the border area. But as a macro camera the wide angle lens can be used very well. The tele lens (2x zoom) doesn’t really convince me. These were the four features that distinguish this 500€ smartphone from the 900€+ smartphones. None of them are relevant for me. I don’t need 5G yet either, as it will probably not find any real use until the next smartphone purchase in 3 years. Furthermore I can say to the 7T that it runs. The Snapdragon 855+ in combination with the 90Hz is insanely fast and every app opens without delay. I also like OxygenOs better than Samsung’s interface, as it is simpler and visually more beautiful. The fingerprint sensor in the display always works for me. The display size is perfect for me. At 6.55 inches, the phone still fits my hands well. An even bigger display would have been a negative point again, so it still fits the size. The Teardropnotch is also a good solution. The small hole at the top in the middle doesn’t bother me at all and I find it a better solution compared to the punchhole and the extendable camera.
I compare the OnePlus 7T with my current device, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro – out of the box, without much setup, as for me the camera is the most important thing. The attached pictures were each taken with the Mate20 Pro and the OnePlus 7T, whereby we have a few normal photos with std. settings (AI) as well as a macro shot, a wide angle (no difference) and the night mode. First of all, the OnePlus’ display is great, whether set at 60hz or 90hz. The performance speaks for itself, the fingerprinter is powerful and better than Huawei’s. The sound is also better on the Oneplus, but this is certainly due to the lack of waterproofing. On the subject of photos – in normal pictures the 7T sharpens a lot, thus offering nicer contrasts, but sometimes details disappear in the background. At dusk, the 7T photos are sharper, but the noise is massive compared to the Mate20 Pro. In the wide-angle range, both devices do not give each other a break, whether wide or macro – the Oneplus delivers slightly warmer pictures. Without the night mode, the photos of the 7T in the dark are rather close to reality, you only see something where there are light sources. There is still some noise, but it looks a bit smaller but sharper than in the Mate20 Pro. Huawei is ahead in night mode, and the P30 Pro is probably unbeaten here together with the Mate 30 Pro. CONCLUSION: Personally, I think the differences in the field of everyday photography with the mobile phone are too small to keep the Oneplus 7T as an upgrade, but I am excited about the Oneplus 8, which has already been announced. Please note that this is my personal opinion – the 7T is a great device, no question about it. If you are looking for a better camera phone like me, the pictures might help you to decide 🙂
The Oneplus 7T fits well in the hand and is very well manufactured. The elongated form factor and the size of the OP 7T should be a matter of taste. Also the frosted glass back is very nice. However, I can’t get used to the camera shape and find it rather – well (but you don’t look at your mobile phone from behind…)
positive:– the Android surface (OxygenOS, Android 10) runs and belongs with the processor (Snapdragon 855+) to the fastest what is available at the moment. However, the security patch status today is from December (Samsung devices are there today already on February!).– very good AmoledDisplay with 90Hz (but you can afford it and simply need more battery. I don’t see any advantage to 60Hz displays here ;-).– built-in speakers sound really good. – very well working gesture control– best fingerprint in the display and fastest face unlock– quick charging– if you want: very good and easy to rotate– good OxygenOS– Android Auto works fine (not like Huawei or Xiaomi)
neutral: – 90 Hz display is nice gimmick, but you only notice it when scrolling fast and it uses more battery (even old Nokia Lumia phones run more smoothly! )– Battery performance is ok (better if you turn off 90Hz)– good photo quality – but not more, but you can take pictures quite well with GCam porting– for the size quite handy and not too heavy
negative (and therefore really 2 star deduction):– no Wireless Charging– no Dual SIM, but only Single SIM, no SD extension possible– in the settings some english words left over (e.g. in the menu where the Dark Mode and colors are set) – despite the setting to bright, the Dark Mode activates by itself again and again – no 16:9 photo format, but only 4:3, 1:1 and Fullscreen (20:9)– no AlwaysON Display ! !– due to the form factor 20:9 quite long– protruding and large camera module– occasionally stuck WLAN
– if you want to play in the top class like Oneplus, you also have to undergo a critical examination. And there it is enough for the Oneplus 7T to be very good, but certainly not too outstanding. There are too many small negative things that do not allow 5 or 4 stars.
Are you sure that the 7t doesn’t have a dual SIM? I have a 7t and 2 SIM cards actively in use in the device ?!
I don’t want to say too much about the technical specifications because whoever knows and loves oneplus knows what to expect in terms of price and performance. I want to write as understandable as possible with my own opinion… the legendary display yes it is very good because of the 90 Hz are incredibly smooth and the display is bright enough. !!
– the camera has improved a lot and shoots really good pictures whether you use wide angle or the triple tele the pictures are very respectable i am not a professional but i think they cut a good figure thanks to the new update ! Before a little muddy … can’t reach Apple from the iPhone 11 Pro but for the normal user it is completely sufficient and very nice for the price in any case really good
– to the size of the phone I also want to say something it is and remains a big club it is really not a small phone which for one or the other is very difficult to use it one-handed
– the stereo- Speakers are definitely a great achievement they are not the loudest and the bass-heavy ones but by and large they serve their purpose well
– the fingerprint sensor does not always work reliably will be updated again but by and large it does what it should
– what I think is a pity and what is very cheap for me is partly the sounds when you press the loud and soft button to lock the phone (I’m coming from the iPhone )
– but what I like very much is the new vibration motor which feels very high quality while typing and I actually start it because it doesn’t bother me
– the memory with 128GB is sufficient for most people but I don’t think it is future proof because with the oneplus 7T pro with 256GB you are better positioned – the system runs and runs and runs and runs clearly big plus nothing frills relatively close to Android ran on the other hand also not in some things find the app drawer could have been solved a little better with the search but already well everything
– the charging is just crazy, I have never seen a battery charge so fast, they have improved a lot
– what I would have liked is a usb-c to jack adapter included I need the original from oneplus to make phone calls in my car (via aux cable I have no bluetooth in my car) because the ones from other manufacturers don’t work properly which is a pity and you have to order it separately in the oneplus store
– Conclusion : I will stay with oneplus but I will decide for the oneplus 7T pro because of the sharper display and a little bit more memory which is more future-proof for me.
The chinese manufacturer knows how to combine current technology in a reasonable way and offer it for a fair price. About technical data and features of this smartphone of the I will not stay long, this has been discussed elsewhere enough. How does the 7T perform in everyday life?
To make a long story short, excellent. The format with the 6-inch display is just right for me and thanks to the narrow form factor, it is usually easy to operate with one hand. It wouldn’t have to be bigger for me, so it is just about fit for my pocket. Unfortunately, the case is not splash-proof, but the headphone port is still missing (which I can cope with, but if you need it, you can buy a USB-C jack adapter for a few euros). Besides the power supply and charging cable, a perfectly glued display foil and a silicone case are included. I find this praiseworthy!
The display itself is clear and sufficiently bright, even if it can’t keep up with the top devices in direct comparison, I don’t miss anything. The response is very fluid thanks to the 90Hz refresh rate.
The OnePlus’ own operating system is based on Android 10 but does without unnecessary frills. The control with (wiping) gestures can fortunately be switched off in favor of the classic (virtual) controls. A practical detail, which I already appreciated in earlier models, is the mechanical 3-step mute switch! As far as performance is concerned, I am always satisfied with the small 8GB version.
The camera has been improved once again compared to the previous model and takes excellent photos in daylight. The artificial depth (un)sharpness (booket) works well and delivers natural results. In bad light the photos are still usable, but here the distance to the top smartphones becomes visible. Here the missing optical image stabilization is most missed.
Praiseworthy is the battery life and the charging time. Under normal use, the battery lasts for two working days without any problems, and thanks to the quick-charge function, the device is almost fully charged again after just under an hour.
Conclusion: A lot of smartphone for the money. Br> Positive: Price/performance: Features: Br> Display: Br> Battery life: Br> Camera performance in daylight: Br> Camera scope of delivery: Br> Negative: Br> Not dust and splash-proof: Br> Lack of image stabilizer
After some time in use, I can say the following about the OnePlus 7T:
Positive:+ Snapdragon 855+, fastest processor on the market It really makes everything run super fast and smooth.+ more RAM than necessary+ 90 Hertz OLED display+ an almost pure Android 10, with some good additions from OnePlus+ The optical fingerprint sensor in the display works really fast and accurate+ A display foil is already attached ex works+ A transparent cover is also included in the scope of delivery+ WARP charge is amazing. The device is charged so fast! br>+ The packaging design is really nice to look at and unpacking is really fun
Negative:– no MicroSD slot However, the 128 GB built-in are more than enough for normal use.– the 7T is quite heavy, but I don’t have the comparisons to other current smartphones of this size– no headphone output. Wired headphones can only be connected with a USB-C adapter
Neutral:The Notch is certainly a matter of taste. Meanwhile, other manufacturers do it better or differently. Personally I don’t mind it. The feature of the Pro version with the extendable camera is very stylish, but probably technically more error-prone than a Notch.
The size of the 7T is really… large, or rather it is quite long. You should consider this before buying. But it still fits in a normal trouser pocket. I can’t say anything about the camera, because I haven’t really tested it yet. But the quality will be so good that you can take very good pictures as a normal Otto photographer. The top devices from Samsung, Huawei and Apple can certainly do more in terms of the night mode, but you have to consider the sometimes big price difference. Also features like the highly praised Astromodus from Google and Apple are certainly nice, but you should probably ask yourself how often you use something like this and if it helps your own photo behaviour or not.
Super Smartphone at a comparatively low price. I have definitely discovered my new favourite brand with OnePlus.
I bought the device for the first time as an import version with 256GB internal memory about a month ago.
Because of the high price in Germany, which is still very cheap compared to other high-end devices available there.
And the fact that there is only the small 128GB version available in Germany.
Because OxygenOS with Android 10 pre-installed already occupies 28GB internal memory. So I decided to buy/order it as an import version here on this site.
I am coming from the OnePlus 7 which I have used as my first OP for about 3 months before.
Since the T-Upgrade version of the 7 series now also has a 90Hz display, the almost identical triple camera of the OP 7 Pro with the beautiful circular design and in my favorite color matt silver. The performance is just incredible with the OxygenOS software alone, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus and the 128/256GB internal UFS 3.0 memory do the rest. Let me put it this way: if you have used a 90Hz display you will never want to go back to a 60Hz display.
Camera quality is also a bit better compared to the OnePlus 7.
Even though the OnePlus 7T has real stereo speakers of the same quality, the OnePlus 7 has better or fuller sound. But that’s just grumbling on a very high level. In principle they are still very good, also thanks to Dolby Atmos.
Also WarpCharge 30T is unbelievable, in only 60min the device is fully charged. Significantly faster than the OnePlus 7 which took 90min.In addition, the fast charging technology is only built into the charger itself, so that the smartphone battery itself doesn’t wear out unnecessarily.
The runtime is also very good for such a normal sized battery with only 3.800mAh.
Instead of reviewing the device in detail (as many others have already done so and I can agree with most opinions), I write about why I didn’t keep it:
I noticed that the display has a strong green tinge in the upper third, while the lower 2/3 are reddish. I noticed this both during the day with full brightness and at night with low brightness and night mode it got worse. DC Dimming hasn’t solved this problem either.
The problem is called Grey Uniformity and is a common problem with the OnePlus 7T. While many reports are from November 2019, my unit was manufactured in March 2020. This means that the problem does not seem to have been fixed even on new models. Such problems are not uncommon with OLED displays, but with my device it was especially bad.
I decided to use the OnePlus 7T Pro although I was against a curved display in the beginning. This device does not have these display problems and in the lower eighth maybe a minimal green cast, which I can only see with Night Mode and lowest brightness at all. There you won’t notice it if at all.
Because in the upper third I look at the display most of the time. If I read text, then I scroll always so that the text moves exactly into the first third. So I never read from top to bottom, but always move the text to my eye position. This causes me to notice the transition from the greenish to the reddish part, which is unacceptable for me. Furthermore, the problem with the 7T felt 100 times worse and was easily noticeable once you noticed it.
That’s why I can personally advise against the 7T, unless you want to take the risk or have to deal with several returns until you get a device that has little or no problem. But I don’t want to play a display roulette à la Nintendo New 3DS XL and order such a product until it finally meets the standard quality. So I sent it back.
I’m used to the curved display of the 7T Pro and the display panel is worlds better than the 7T.
