OnePlus 7T review: 90Hz for $600!

by birtanpublished on September 13, 2020

The oneplus 70 is sort of a weird launch because it's coming just five months after the release of the oneplus 7 pro and while this isn't a pro model in fact there is no pro model this time around at least not in the States and you know what I'm okay with that because the 70

Is just so damn good on its own let's start with the specs because that's kind of one plus its thing the 70 is one of the first phones with the snapdragon 855 plus which is basically a regular a 55 with some added horsepower and a focus

On gaming performance there's just one configuration this year with 8 gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of u FS 3.0 storage coming in at $5.99 which is 70 dollars cheaper than the 7 pro just like with the oneplus 7 you lose the curve to

Display and trade the seven pro's motorized front camera for the old teardrop knotch but I've always preferred flat displays anyway so this is actually sort of a win for me there's a matte frosted blue finish around the

Back that I really like and the new camera dome actually looks pretty good too if you ask me you get three lenses now just like on the seven pro ones a wide-angle ones telephoto and the others an ultra wide

And one plus even marked the exact focal lengths of each lens of course you also get one pluses mainstays switch on the side for silencing your phone or putting it on vibrate which I'm a big fan of oh and let's talk about that display for a

Second it's a 20 by 9 dynamic AMOLED display with crazy fast fingerprint sensor sitting underneath and an equally fast 90 Hertz refresh rate if you've used the oneplus 7 pro before you already know what this is like but it's

Just so fast and fluid that it really does make it kind of hard to go back to a 60 Hertz panel you also get a handful of different color profiles to choose from and while it's not quite as bright or vibrant as samsung's panels i've been

Perfectly happy with the 17 just be warned that the auto brightness is very aggressive and very bad while we're talking minor Hardware gripes there's still no wireless charging or certified water is

Here and haptics while a major step forward from the oneplus 60 are still nowhere near the level of the pixel 3 iPhone 11 or even the Galaxy Note 1000 more expensive than the 70 and to be honest I've been enjoying the 70 as an

Overall package more than any of them a lot of that comes down to the software the 70 ships with Android 10 right out of the box which introduces a system-wide dark mode new theming options and plenty of behind the scenes

Changes but that's all been a part of oneplus as oxygen OS for a while I've said before that oxygen OS is my favorite implementation of Android and that's still true on the 70 it stays as close to stock Android as possible while

Giving you even more customizable options there's even a slightly improved version of Android 10's controversial new gesture scheme though you can always switch back to the 3 button layout if you prefer

What's more good news is that the battery life doesn't struggle to keep up with that 90 Hertz display anymore either in the last week I've ended almost every day with around 30% remaining and if you happen to run the

Battery down prematurely you can top it back up to 70% in half an hour with the improved warped charge 30t brick so this is normally where I tell you that for all of its positives the oneplus 70 is let down by its cameras but well they're

Actually pretty good the primary sensor is a 48 megapixel Sony IMX 586 that uses pixel binning to output 12 megapixel photos colors tend to lean a bit on the cool side especially when you're shooting outdoors

And the camera can be a little slow to capture but I've been mostly happy with the shots I've gotten there's plenty of detail and when you need to capture a different perspective you can always switch to the ultra wide or telephoto

Lenses of course they're not quite as good as the main sensor but this is the first time oneplus has included triple cameras on a non-pro model and you know what they're not half bad night mode is pretty good too it takes about 2 seconds

Or so to capture and it definitely pulls in more light but there's a lot of over sharpening happening in posts that I could really do without and this is I miss having the pixels nitesite or even the iPhones new night mode look the

Oneplus 70 isn't suddenly the best new Android phone on the market but I think at the very least it's my new favorite the 90 Hertz display is faster than almost any other flagships oneplus a software continues to be a joy to use

And battery life is more than enough for my day to day you're still sacrificing things like wireless charging and an IP rating like on any other oneplus phone but for me those trade-offs are well worth the otherwise stellar experience
