If you are looking for a instagram phone which AI enhance your pictures beyond recognition, OnePlus 6T is not the upgrade you want.
OnePlus 6T didn’t disappoint with it’s f/1.7 camera just like the original OnePlus 6. In fact, it carries on the good of the original OnePlus 6 and comes with an upgraded battery and memory foot print. With a bigger capacity of battery, the phone lasts longer without a recharge and more pictures can be stored on the phone.
With the Dash Charger, a full charge from 0 % to 100 % took around 90 minutes to complete which is pretty fast. It only took 25 to 30 minutes to charge up to 50%. The performance of the phone is consistent with other Snapdragon 845 out there and performs smoothly. Some brands have crippled carrier aggregation on it’s phone which results in hampered 4G speeds. Speedtest with 4G+ gets over 220 Mbps proves that 4G+ is working correctly on the OnePlus 6T.
We saw the OnePlus 6 took detail and good shots in our preview review. In the OnePlus 6T, the camera night mode is a plus for the phone which brightens up the environment by increasing the exposure. If you have shaky hands, you might end up with trials in the picture. When compared to the GCAM, we feel that the night mode of the camera has room for improvement as it couldn’t take objects that is almost in 90% darkness.
In Conclusion, the OnePlus 6T is definitely a contender for the best smartphone camera in 2018. The image quality is superb and is comparable to those taken using the Pixel 3 XL. The images taken are not artificially enhanced and looks natural. If you already have a OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T is just a minor upgrade, I would say you might want to wait for a OnePlus 7. Perhaps they will finally include a wide angle camera on it.
