The best OnePlus 5T deals for Christmas 2017

The OnePlus 5T is a phone that might look like an incremental upgrade, but there are some real pluses (forgive the pun) that make this a phone to look out for. And OnePlus 5T deals are only a tad more expensive than those on its predecessor.

For your money you're getting a cheaper phone than many of the top handsets on the market, but with up to 8GB of RAM and the latest Qualcomm chipset - coupled with an imminent upgrade to Android Oreo - you can see it doesn't skimp on power.

The AMOLED technology on the front of the OnePlus 5T has been extended over its predecessors - that means you're getting an 18:9 display in the mix, and while it's not QHD it looks great and feels sharp enough. The facial recognition is also a neat way to access your phone, and while it's not in the same league as Face ID on the iPhone X, it's accurate enough.

The cameras have been upgraded on this new 'T' model from OnePlus 5, which bring a stronger image, and battery life has received something of a boost too.

If you're a student, then there's good news for you, too. OnePlus is offering you a 10% discount on your new OnePlus 5 through StudentBeans. Check out the details and claim on the OnePlus website

OnePlus 5T review in brief

Easily the most impressive OnePlus phone we've seen since its debut

Release date: November 2017 | Weight: 162g | Dimensions: 156.1 x 75 x 7.3 mm | OS: Android 7.1 | Screen size: 6-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 2160 | CPU: Snapdragon 835 | RAM: 6/8GB | Storage: 64GB/128GB | Battery: 3,300mAh | Rear camera: 20MP + 16MP | Front camera: 16MP

Premium design and feel
Improved camera
Only Full HD display
Still on the pricier side for OnePlus

The OnePlus 5T takes the power and design of the OnePlus 5 and adds to it smartly. The 18:9, 6-inch screen on the front is more immersive and still uses AMOLED technology.

To achieve a lower price point some corners have been cut, but they're not as severe as you may think. There's no QHD resolution display, stereo speakers, expandable storage or standout camera, but what you do get is a highly capable Android smartphone that more often than not outperforms its price bracket.
