OnePlus 7T Review


The ONEPLUS 7 Pro introducing a whole new look for the brand than a few months later. Oneplus announced the refreshed 7T and 7T Pro models. Giving the timing of the launches the 7 & 7 Pro is still relevant today. So why did one plus announce a phone so identical to the 7T Pro? Let’s find out I’m Sudarshan Gautam with TechCruzz. What will be OnePlus 7T Price in Nepal?


The 7T has a refined glass and metal design. I like the contrast of the polished metal frame against the matte glass. Not to mention this matte finish feels really nice in my hand. I feel like I have a better grip on it. I just really enjoy soft things. This is the glacier blue one plus 7T and it’s got brighter shades of blue compared to the finish of the 7 pros in nebula blue. Though I do prefer the more mysterious one the 7T.


It doesn’t have a pop-up camera instead the selfie camera is housed in a notch which I got used to right away. The screen isn’t curved and I think I prefer this over the 7T pro’s curved display. But it really depends on what your preference is I will say the curved screen does make it easier to do the back gesture. But I don’t like how a phone with a curved display can sometimes distort the edges of the video or a website that you’re looking at. Anyway, going back to the design there’s a bunch of talk about this round camera ring. A lot of you guys don’t seem to like it but is it really any different than a square one.

So, I kind of get why some people are turned off by it but it really is just an aesthetic. After all, there has to be a way for one plus a differentiate.

Oppo Case

The refreshed models from the other models we just wonder if Oneplus will go with the same circular design next year. Or go with I don’t know a triangle or something when using it on a table the ring does raise the 7T up quite a bit. So, if you’d rather protect the camera ring from surfaces. You can try one of one pluses case, I really like the red silicone case. The sandstone black is a classic one plus material. Otherwise being ClearCase is not bad and protects the corners pretty well.

This is one of the best displays that one plus has ever used on a device. On paper, it’s the brightest and most colour accurate we’ve ever tested from one plus. I like how one plus makes it easy to understand which colour profile you should choose when first setting up the 7T. You can choose something accurate semi vibrant. If you’re into something more obnoxiously saturated, we won’t judge.

The display is a 6.55-inch fluid AMOLED screen with a slightly longer 20:9 aspect ratio full HD resolution. Viewing the screen in direct sunlight is never an issue. I didn’t notice any problems with polarized sunglasses. Oneplus is using the 90 Hertz fluid AMOLED screen for all its phones. I appreciate that even though the phone is cheaper than most flagships. The display is somewhere that one plus decided to spend a little more on. And it helps the phone stand out.

Gaming Experience

So, for those asking “is the 90 Hertz display really necessary?” Absolutely, not but it does elevate the user experience not to mention it’s a better experience. If you play games as long as those games support the higher frame rates and not gonna lag PUBG mobile is pretty awesome in 90 FPS.

Operating System Oxygen OS

The one plus 7T comes with Android 10 out of the box laid over with a customized oxygen OS. The Android 10 update brings more ways to customize the UI. You can change the accent colour you can change the shape of the icons either the launcher or the quick toggles. You can apply system-wide dark mode which also comes on with supported apps. There’s also the customizable shelf which lets you configure short cuts and add widgets. I like the parking feature that remembers where you parked and for how long.

Phone lock

The in-display fingerprint scanner is among the quickest I’ve tested. These days it’s accurate and reliable. You barely, even see the animation when unlocking the phone.


You can choose between the standard navbar or Android tens gesture controls. The new Android 10 gestures are more intuitive. There’s smoother action and you can switch apps in one move to gesture back you swipe in from either edge of the screen. But the one plus gesture wasn’t like that before you had to swipe up from the bottom. Both the 7T and 7T Pro no longer used the old one plus gestures. But I’m also glad that Google’s two-button nav bar is long gone that was terrible just it was. It was just a mess, oxygen OS is so smooth and so fast. The AMOLED display really amplifies that feeling, I’m really happy with the software.

Battery Power and Performance

The 7T is a thirty-eight hundred-million-amp-hour battery (3800mAh). It uses the same warp charged 30 adapters from before. But the One plus 7 now supports warp charged 30T. An update was made to the batteries hardware to accept the adapter’s max output for longer.

In our endurance tests

we saw a 90-hour endurance score. We tested the phone with the 90 Hertz feature turned off and while it did help the score. By a few hours, it wasn’t a drastic difference. Besides, if we turned it off, you’re depriving yourself of the intended user experience. There is just one downside to warp charge and instead, it requires the factory cable.

Charging Test

We tested the one plus 7T with a USB power delivery charger as well. It got 42% in 30 minutes which is not bad but with the warped charge 30T charger we got to 72% in the same amount of time. Thankfully there is a one plus car charger available but it’s a little steep at 50 bucks. It can be really convenient though on my 12-minute drive to the gym while also navigating with Google Maps. The 7T recharged from 18 to 38 per cent not bad and I made it through my workout.

Camera Review

The camera is where one plus made some changes by adding a third sensor that wasn’t present on the One plus 7.  The setup is made up of a 48-megapixel main camera a 12-megapixel telephoto with 2 times optical zoom. 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera with autofocus and a macro mode which we’ll get to later picture quality is mostly identical to the 7T and 7T Pro.

Since they all use the same 48 megapixels sensor images, generally look great with above-average. Dynamic range details aren’t the best. But you’ll only really notice this upon very close inspection with the telephoto camera. We noticed a minor issue when zooming in up close. It seems that one plus is slightly up sampling these images as it has done in the past. This isn’t a problem it just means that details aren’t as sharp as they could be

Camera Details

Aside from that the telephoto camera takes pretty nice shots with great dynamic range and vibrant colours. Though they don’t always match the main cameras. The ultra-wide camera captures nice colours and dynamic range. While this isn’t the best ultra-wide on the market. It does take very nice photos. There is a somewhat strong distortion that can sometimes cause chromatic aberrations. And that happens towards the edges of the frame. This means you can kind of see the primary colour separating. Again, this is only really visible at the edges of the frame. The 7T can take nightscape photos.

The image stacking works pretty well to combine exposures. The downside is that many details are lost in the process. Now, you can also take Medscape photos with the ultra-wide-angle camera. This comes in handy since the ultra-wide lens isn’t as bright as the main cameras F 1.6 aperture. There is a 16-megapixel selfie camera on a 7T. It’s identical to the 7 pro’s pop-up camera. Selfies are generally a bit softer than other flagships. But the details are still good enough. Skin tones are mostly accurate and HDR helps keep the backgrounds well exposed. You can also take portraits with the front camera. Subject separation isn’t bad on the 7T.

There’s a new macro shooting mode and it lets the ultra-wide-angle camera get really up-close on smaller objects and services. There are three zoom levels in macro mode but they’re all cropped from the same sensor. Portrait shots use the telephoto camera and subject separation is quite good. You can also shoot portraits using the main 48-megapixel camera. So, you don’t have to step back as far as your subject.

Video Recording

With oxygen OS 10, there are a few new video modes available. But only two of them, we were able to use. At the time of this review, there’s 4k video recording with the ultra-wide camera. There’s a new super-stable video mode. 9 60fps slow-mo is also coming in a future update. There are times when you’ll want to shoot video with the ultra-wide camera. But keep in mind that the dimmer lens will potentially result in noisy video indoors. Sadly, that noise is actually present in the super-stable video even in bright light. The lens on the ultra-wide isn’t amazing, to begin with. And there’s no optical image stabilization. So, we recommend you throw the phone onto a DJI Osmo if you want to shoot cinematic footage.

Pros and Cons

The 7T fills a gap left between the 7 and the 7 pros with faster charging, the addition of a third camera and the 90 Hertz fluid AMOLED display. It also fills gaps in markets like the US where the One Plus 7 didn’t launch. We imagine that it would do the vice versa with the 7T Pro in markets where the 7 Pro didn’t

Launch. So, the question is “should you buy the one plus 7T?”. If you don’t care for the 7T pro’s larger higher-res display with dual curves. The 7T Pro is a more compact design and you still get the 90 Hertz Display. Starting at 599 the one plus 7T can do everything that a flagship can do. Albeit without a polished camera experience. But it’s up to you to decide whether wireless charging and an official water-resistant IP rating are really worth hundreds more.
