The price of flagship phones are rising every year, but you don’t need to pay top dollar for a top-notch experience.
OnePlus offers flagship phones at a lower price point and while its first few handsets didn’t trouble the established names, its more recent efforts have really pushed the likes of Samsung, Apple and co.
The OnePlus 6T is the firm’s best flagship offering yet, with a host of high-end features and a price tag which is comfortably lower than the competition.
Screen: This may be a «cheap» flagship phone, but you still get a huge 6.41-inch AMOLED display providing colorful, bright and punchy images. It may ‘only’ have a fill HD resolution – and there’s a notch at the top – but for the price it’s difficult to knock.
Battery life: OnePlus has increased the size of the battery in the 6T over the 6 it replaces, and that’s resulted in improved battery life with the handset easily lasting a full day on a single charge.
Camera: There’s a dual camera setup on the rear of the OnePlus 6T, and while it doesn’t reach the same heights as the Google Pixel 3, Huawei P20 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S9, when you consider the price it’s still an accomplished offering.
Mini verdict: The OnePlus 6T is a good-looking and powerful smartphone that can compete with handsets from the larger and more established brands on the market while undercutting them in price.
