Camera could be better

The OnePlus 3T has still got the same beautiful all-metal design, the same 5.5-inch AMOLED display that's bright and vibrant and the fingerprint scanner is still lightning fast - all the main specs are there, and it's only the upgraded chipset and battery that make the biggest difference to the now-defunct OnePlus 3.

The lack of a microSD card, and a battery which only lasts around a day, may put some off but considering the price you're paying the OnePlus is good value for money, despite a price hike over the OnePlus 3.

If you're desperate for a high-end phone, but don't have the money to stretch that far, the OnePlus 3T will make you rather happy.

  • What's next? The OnePlus 5 (no 4 model coming) set for a raft of changes, from a dual lens camera to an all-new design language as well - it's going to be interesting.

Also consider: If OnePlus isn't doing it for you, then check out the Moto G5 Plus which has slightly less power, but a still very strong feature set, a lower price tag and a new metal design.
