8.8/10
Informr score
The OnePlus 6T currently has an Informr score of 8.8 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 72 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The OnePlus 6T hopes to keep up the company's record of producing devices that rival top-tier phones on the market while offering prices closer to the mid-tier. The 6T is an iterative update to the popular OnePlus 6 .

As such, most changes were subtle. But there are a few additions -- and subtractions -- to consider when deciding if the phone is for you.

Around front, you’ll see one of the biggest changes to the phone. The 6.41-inch AMOLED panel is nearly bezel-free. Running at 2340-by-1080 pixels, reviews indicate it offers outstanding clarity and punchy, vivid colors to help make games, pictures, and movies pop. 

The screen also includes with one of the smallest notches used on a mobile phone to date. It’s a slight dip for the single-lens camera and nothing more. The earpiece is located on the top edge of the phone to keep the notch as small as possible. Unfortunately, OnePlus also removed the notification LED to save space.

The screen also hides an in-display fingerprint sensor. While the technology looks cool, reviewers found it hit or miss. So you might be better relying on facial recognition or a PIN to secure your phone.

To make matters worse, OnePlus removed the 3.5mm headphone jack to make room for the in-display scanner. But they include a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box should you need it.

The OxygenOS software running the device is based on Android 9.0 Pie. It offers a nearly stock Android experience. Reviewers loved the snappy response time in menus and panels and the minimal changes made.

The only other change to the phone is a larger battery. Now rated at 3,700mAh, the battery should have no problem lasting through a day of regular use. 

Otherwise, the phone is identical to its predecessor. For more on what to expect from the phone in terms of performance, cameras, and more, check out our summary for the OnePlus 6 .

In terms of the camera, you get a well-rounded set of specifications.

OnePlus' success over the years was built on its obsessive focus on speed. The OnePlus 6T delivers the same level of performance as flagships that cost nearly twice as much, and OxygenOS continues to be the best third-party skin around. Sure, the 6T is missing a few features, but for what it costs,...

Should you buy a OnePlus 6T at a cheaper price after the launch of OnePlus 7 series then yes by all means. You will not regret the purchase six months down the line but along with that, it is worth noting that you will make some compromises in return. The primary compromise that I am talking about h...

There's a lot of choice in the mobile world right now, and the OnePlus 6T stands out in two ways. First, the performance and its speed. It matches or outdoes every other Android device out there in that, although with the newer competitors the difference is barely noticeable. Second, the 6T has a un...

Admittedly, with a full glass design I expected wireless charging to be present, but it is difficult to find any other faults with this phone. It has solid battery life and the cutting edge under display fingerprint reader. But I don’t think I will be buying the OnePlus 6T. My reason for this is tha...
