OnePlus continues to rewrite the playbook with an update to its outstanding smartphone OnePlus 3 flagship. Packing a massive 6GB RAM, the OnePlus 3T, boasts improved battery life, updated software and even more blistering speed.

In short, the OnePlus 3T is a sublime blend of inspired design and full throttle performance. The 2017 flagships have already started to surface but the impressive OnePlus 3T remains one of the best options on the market, especially for those that are price-conscientious.

Firstly, let's have a comparison overview of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T siblings.

OnePlus 3 vs OnePlus 3T

So, what exactly does the OnePlus 3T bring to the table and why should we buy it?

Let's dive in and find out.

Exquisite Metal Unibody

In terms of the design, the OnePlus 3T looks exactly like its older sibling featuring the same full metal unibody construction with a slightly curved back, accentuated by rounded sides and corners. It still conveys premium styling in the same understated way as its predecessor.

The flagship-quality body is molded from a single piece of space-grade aluminum, effortlessly combining strength with elegance – making it a true delight to handle. Despite being constructed entirely from metal, the phone is surprisingly light at just 5.6oz (158g) and it feels slimmer as well at a mere 0.29 inches (7.4mm). This makes the svelte device not only pocket-friendly, but incredibly satisfying to hold in your palm.

Powerful Performance

Under the hood, the OnePlus 3T comes with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, clocked at an imposing 2.35GHz. The 3T retains the 6GB of RAM that was available with the OnePlus 3, allowing it to juggle countless tasks without any notable performance overhead. While not external storage option exists, internal storage ranging from 64GB to 128GB means running out of space is a thing of the past.

Not surprisingly, the phablet delivers a remarkable user experience. Opening, closing, and switching between apps is silky smooth and snappy, and the touch responsiveness is precise and excellent; gaming enthusiasts, in particular, are in for a treat, with graphically intensive games handled seemingly without breaking a sweat – dropped frames are nowhere to be seen.

Powerful Battery and Dash Charge

The OnePlus 3T packs a generous 3400mAh battery, delivering enough juice to take you through the day and beyond. The battery still uses the proprietary OnePlus DASH™ Charging technology, a fast charging solution featuring smart power management that significantly reduces heat generated. It's fast too: a quick 30-minute charge replenishes the battery up to 57 percent.

In short, DASH™ Charge is faster, safer, and cooler. Unlike other technologies, charging speeds remain remarkably consistent even while gaming, live-streaming or performing otherwise hardware-demanding activities. With both innovative hardware and software optimizations, class-leading power efficiency ensures your battery goes even further.

Software Tailored for Everybody

The OnePlus 3T runs the latest iteration of Oxygen OS 4.0.3 (based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow), while more adventurous users can install the Open Beta 3 that pushes the phone to the bleeding edge Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This incredibly fast adoption of the best that Android has to offer sets the manufacturer and the phone far ahead of its competitors, making the most of Android's core functionalities while adding a slew of powerful customization options.

OnePlus always wants to give a little something more in the software department, so there are more gesture controls to enjoy. For example, you can now turn the phone over to mute a call and take screenshots by sliding three fingers downward. You can also change the shape of your icons and assign a password to individual apps for extra security. The file manager app, usually poorly implemented on many Android phones, received a facelift making it much easier to navigate.

Dual 16MP Camera

The OnePlus 3T adopts superior 16MP sensors in both the front and back camera delivering professional-grade results to photography and videos. The exclusive Smart Capture technology makes taking the perfect photo even easier, allowing you to capture your most precious memories effortlessly. Videos are shot at a retina-searing 4K (2160P) at 30fps, while 720P HD video is captured at a breathtaking 120fps.

The cameras come with an f/2.0 aperture, OIS (optical image stabilization) and phase detection auto-focus which makes OnePlus 3T a superb phone for taking pictures and selfies.

Unsurpassed Value Proposition

It ultimately comes down to value: the competitive price and flagship specs/performance combine to turn the OnePlus 3T into one of the best offerings currently available on the smartphone market. The Flash Sale price is just $449.99 at Gearbest. It's also worth mentioning the incredibly active and dedicated user-based community around all OnePlus devices, fully supported by the parent company itself – this is evidenced by the phenomenal support and constant update pushes to its devices.

Wrap Up

The OnePlus 3T smartphone is a true goliath even among high-end flagship devices. It is aimed directly at more demanding users who demand performance without compromise. With its 6GB of RAM and top-of-the-line Snapdragon 821 CPU, the OnePlus 3T runs every app or 3D game currently available without any issues. This is a phone enthusiast’s smartphone that, performance-wise at least, will still deliver exceptional performance for at least the next 2 years, especially considering that 2 or 3GB of RAM is still the standard for mainstream smartphones.

Bottom line: if you want to own a cutting edge smartphone with unparalleled support, a great price and blistering specs, look no further than the OnePlus 3T. It's available right now at Gearbest.
