OnePlus 5T gets a teardown video, not waterproof at all

OnePlus 5T gets a teardown video, not waterproof at all

Although OnePlus is smart to adopt 2017 flagship-like features on the OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 5 is becoming more obsolete as a result, looking more like a phone from 2016 instead.

OnePlus's decision to leave out Project Treble means their devices will not get faster Android updates.

But now OnePlus appears to have confirmed that it's an opt-in feature for phones being updated to Oreo from older versions, rather than an automatic upgrade.

The OnePlus 5 was a solid phone with a few quirks, but the OnePlus 5T improves on it in a lot of ways, and the company's work in fixing those problems is paying off in a big way.

OnePlus 5T is the new handset priced starting Rs 32,999 that sports Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Rest of the handsets in the given price range either come with 6GB RAM or 4GB RAM. The device further goes on to include a 6-inch full HD AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

Since the OnePlus 5T has been launched at the same price tag in India as the OnePlus 5, the former makes the latter outdated as it comes with better technology. But according to an AMA session about the OnePlus 5T on the company's community forums, OnePlus still happens to be indecisive for a "T" smartphone next year. There have been talks on whether the OnePlus 5T is a worthy upgrade from OnePlus 5. Off the bat, we can say that the OnePlus 5T is NOT waterproof, so don't throw it into the ocean just yet. In India, the OnePlus 5T was also made available for buying on November 21 - via early access - and is now listed as out of stock on Amazon India. Although OnePlus 5T comes with a face recognition tech, many don't find it secure enough as reports have been floating around that the tech can be fooled using a mere print of the face.

The OnePlus 6 rumors will gradually start swirling by the start of next year.

OnePlus' "Dash Charging" feature works quickly and we managed to get nearly 65 per cent juice on a single charge.
