Announced on November 15th is the OnePlus 3T. This is essentially the new king when it comes to budget smartphones. Taking everything that made the OnePlus 3 the best smartphone for under $400, and making it even better. 

The OnePlus 3T is almost identical to the OP3, but a few improvements for only $40 makes it even more compelling. Here's the rundown. 

It is available right now for just $439, and will be the phone to get in 2017. The best price/performance smartphone in the world. If you ask me. Well, until others start to arrive this year. 

Specs include the same 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display as before, but there's a new Snapdragon 821 processor with 6GB of RAM. The same processor as Google's Pixel. Users will get 64 or 128GB of storage, a bigger 3,400 mAh battery (compared to 3,000) and now both the front and rear cameras are both 16 megapixels. Of course there's a fingerprint scanner, it's made entirely out of metal, and comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and the latest Oxygen OS which is nearly stock Android. 

OnePlus is offering it in a brand new and beautiful Gunmetal Grey color, as well as Soft Gold. It's basically a prettier OnePlus 3 with double the storage, better performance, an improved camera and much better battery life. This will seriously give the Galaxy S7 Edge a run for its money, and at half the price.
