The OnePlus 5T offers a lot for your money, just like the Honor View 10 - a clear, 18:9 OLED display, a decent slug of battery and a good camera with a nice bokeh mode. The price is low, but many people would hanker after this brand even if it wasn't so cost-effective.

Screen: The 6-inch AMOLED display on the OnePlus 5T is fantastic, especially given the low price tag. It's the best screen ever seen in a OnePlus handset and features the same 18:9 aspect ratio seen on the other Android flagship phones. 

Battery life: Solid all-day battery life is what you'll get out of this phone. So it fits nicely in with the competition then - not as good as the LG V30 but comfortably as good as the Galaxy S9 and the rest.

Camera: The camera, again, is decent without being standout. You won't have any problems with it and you'll be able to take some amazing photos with it. It's not as good as the Pixel 2 but the far cheaper price tag will explain why.

Mini verdict: If you're willing to put up with a few small compromises then you could argue the OnePlus 5T could be even further up this list. One thing is for sure though: in terms of value for money it won't disappoint.
