OnePlus 3T: 5 best and 5 worst things

by birtanpublished on September 26, 2020

The 1 plus 3t is one of the best smartphones out there right now but just like every device out there it has its upside and it has its downside so in this video we're going to take a look at five great things about the 3t and 5 not so great things about the 3 – first the

Good stuff we've got the price starting at four hundred and forty dollars the 3t is easily the best phone under five hundred dollars and it just might be the best bang for your buck overall putting this into perspective the 3t is two

Hundred and ten dollars less than the iPhone 7 and II Google pixel and that's not even the excel yet it's a spec sheet translates into a phone that could probably run a few hundred bucks higher everything that I mentioned in this

Category can be tied back into the price of the phone making it one of the better values as far as smart phones go next up we're talking about speed the 3t is easily one of the fastest phones I've ever used thousand back-and-forth

Between applications using two of them at once playing games and overall use is an absolute breeze with this phone with little to no lag here that I've noticed in my youth even the fingerprint reader is blazing fast it's also one of the

More reliable and accurate sensors that I've used but not only does this phone perform quickly and data than you it also performs quickly when you're not using it I am of course referring to – charging according to 1 + this allows

You to get a 60 % charge in 30 minutes and this has been proven mostly accurate by a few sources – charge is significantly faster than Qualcomm quick charge 2.0 making it super easy and convenient to get your phone from

Completely dead to 100% in no time at all moving on to the camera the cameras on the 3t are nothing short of impressive and they're especially so considering the phone's price tag the 3t sports a 16 megapixel main shooter and a

16 megapixel selfie camera as well the primary camera is actually a Sony IMX 298 sensor with an S 2.0 aperture and oh is which is super important sectors come out nice sharp and surprisingly solid 4k video is pretty nice as well and the

Added stabilization is a huge bonus so please come out very nice – thanks to the 16 megapixel front-facing camera making this one of the best phones for selfies sure this set of cameras may not be on the level of iPhone galaxy or

Pixel cameras but by no means should they be overlooked so don't get it twisted the 3t has what are in my opinion the best cameras on a phone in its class second and last we have customization the 3t is running a near

Stock version of Android it's called oxygen OS and there are some nice features out of here you can change the UI color way seen there's a our mode which i think is a great and underrated addition nowadays you can

Choose between software or hardware keys and you can choose the orientation of either one there are off-screen gestures for opening up the camera a triggering the flashlight as well as media controls and on the hardware side of things you

Have the alert slider allowing you to customize your sound profile rather easily so out of the box the 3t has a nice selection of customization to get you started helping users make the phone work the way they want it through last

But not least we've got the hardware 3t is wrapped in glass and aluminum the phone's got a very nice and solid feel in the hand making one of the most premium looking and feeling devices in this price range and the top of that is

Got a rather thin frame coming in at just 7.4 in millimeters which is 0.3 millimeter spinners in the s7 edge now inside that frame oneplus managed to cram a three thousand four hundred million power battery along with six

Gigs of ram and these Snapdragon 820 one chip and we can't forget the headphone jack yes on paper the three T could be pressed in the 650 700 plus range but it's not which is great because what's on paper actually translates into

Real-world usage with a 3t making it a potential and sometimes probable flagship killer of course not every phone is without its faults but to be honest the 3t doesn't have as many significant downfalls as you might think

Which brings us back to the hardware sure it's built very well with nice materials in all but there's no getting around the fact that this phone is slippery as heck which of course is easily remedied by a case or a skin like

The one that I've got here from D brand next up is the lack of expandable storage of course not everyone cares too much about this but for the people that do care it would have been nice for oneplus to have made one of the slots in

The dual SIM slot tray and micro SD card slot the base line 3 T comes with 64 gigs of storage which just isn't enough for some people they may not be listening to congregate all their pictures and music to the cloud just yet

And any more local storage the thing is a micro SD card slot wouldn't really get in the way or take up a lot of space this is definitely something that's missed by a lot of people nowadays and then we've got the lack of water

Resistance just like the last topic not everyone is going to care about water resistance and perhaps equipping this phone with that would result in a higher price tag but there's room for that something important about smart phones

Nowadays is recognization whether it be drop protection or water protection and one way or another there's always a chance for your phone to meet water and lose and even if it's not by accident some people take advantage and just wash

Their phones or take pictures and videos underwater it gives users that peace of mind knowing that if their phone doesn't fax come in contact with water whether it's on accident or not the

Phone will be saved and now we're talking about that speaker something that's always stuck in my mind about smartphones are their speakers the 3t sports a single bottom firing speaker it doesn't sound awful I've definitely

Heard worse but it doesn't sound good either you could say why not just connect it to a Bluetooth speaker that's the obvious workaround but there are times when people just don't have their speaker's on them and they just have to

Rely on the built-in one at the end of the day it gets the job done but we all know it could have been quite a bit better lastly we have a weak vibration motor again not everyone will find this an issue because they just turned

Vibrations off but when using the phone the phone's vibration motor is pretty sad and it makes for a not so satisfying response when pressing capacitive buttons and typing on the keyboard for foam like this I'd expect it to be solid

In all aspects but something as little as a week vibration motor actually has an impact budget phones like the honor eight has very pleasing and solid feeling vibration response to navigation controls and keyboard hammering so it's

Definitely not impossible for oneplus to pull this off maybe on the next phone so that about does it for the video what do you guys think of the 1 + 3 T in the future of oneplus what should they add or take away in the next phone go ahead
