OnePlus 5T vs iPhone X

Adjust Comment Print

After months of leaks, OnePlus 5T was unveiled to the world this Thursday. They continuously offer excellent accessories for every phone released, including the OnePlus 5T. The flagship is priced at $499 for 64GB and $559 for 128GB.

The device also comes with face-unlocking feature, similar to Apple's face ID for security goal apart from fingerprint sensor. It comes with 16 Megapixel Sony IMX398 sensor primary and 20 Megapixel Sony IMX376K sensor secondary rear camera with Dual LED flash. The company said it will disable that ability for 3rd-party apps to get root privileges in an upcoming OTA software patch. The notable changes in the 5T compared to OnePlus 5 are the fingerprint sensor on the back and display size.

And then there's face unlocking, which OnePlus didn't quite make the song and dance over that Apple did. But while the OnePlus 5T comes with an up-to-date bezel-less design and even Face ID, it notoriously ships without the latest version of its Android operating system. OnePlus 5 will be receiving the OS version later this month.

But some reviewers have also claimed that OnePlus's facial recognition feature is 10 times faster than iPhone X's.

A case will help prevent damage or scratches to the dual cameras on the back of your phone, make it easier to hold and keep the 6-inch screen safe.

Its much costlier counterpart, the iPhone X, on the other hand, sports a height of 144mm, is 71mm wide.

While the phone has been launched with Android 7.1.1 out-of-the-box, the OnePlus 5T runs OxygenOS 4.7.0, which is an improvement over OxygenOS 4.5 on the OnePlus 5.

Inside, the OnePlus 5T is identical to its forebear and I would expect it to produce near-identical benchmark results. OnePlus says the 20MP lens will take care of photography matters when in low-light conditions by grouping pixels in batches of four so that more light and details are captured thanks to something known as Intelligent Pixel Technology. According to a recent IDC survey, OnePlus devices account for 28% of the market share in the premium smartphone segment in India (phones worth over $400), with the company noting a sizeable bump from the 12% recorded in Q1 2017. While it has the same battery as the OnePlus 5T, it does support wireless charging, and it offers Samsung DeX and Bixby, both of which lack from the new OnePlus smartphone.
