OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 5: Specs

An important factor for any buyer is how fast and powerful a phone is. The specs and features it delivery is extremely important. OnePlus always delivers the latest and greatest, and the OnePlus 5T is no exception. Here's what completes this new phone, and how it's different from the original. 

OnePlus 5T Specs 

  • 6.01-inch 1080p HD Optic AMOLED Display (Small bezels)
  • Snapdragon 835 Processor (same as Galaxy S8, OP5)
  • 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, or 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage
  • No micro-SD card slot
  • Android Nougat with Oxygen OS (Oreo coming soon)
  • Dual Rear Cameras – 16 Megapixel f/1.7 camera and secondary 20 Megapixel f/1.7 aperture lens (no zoom, but better overall performance)
  • 16 Megapixel front camera
  • Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner
  • 3,300 mAh battery with Faster Dash Charging (0-92% in one hour)
  • USB Type-C Port, headphone jack, mute slider button
  • Bottom Firing Speakers, Face Unlock, NFC, more

As you can see, this is a powerful phone. Packing a big screen, tons of RAM, plenty of storage and dual rear cameras. Sadly the battery is the same size as the earlier phone. The biggest changes are the screen, camera, fingerprint scanner, and face unlock. 

OnePlus 5 Specs

  • 5.5-inch 1080p HD AMOLED Display
  • Snapdragon 835 Processor 
  • 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, or 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage
  • No micro-SD card slot
  • Android Nougat with Oxygen OS
  • Dual Rear Cameras – 20 Megapixel f/2.6 zoom lens and Main 16 Megapixel f/1.7 aperture lens
  • 16 Megapixel front camera
  • Front-facing ceramic fingerprint scanner
  • 3,300 mAh battery with Faster Dash Charging (0-92% in one hour)
  • USB Type-C Port, headphone jack, mute slider button
  • Bottom Firing Speakers, more

As you can see, the new phone has more than just a bigger screen. There is one notable change though, the OnePlus 5T secondary rear camera doesn't offer telephoto zoom like before. Instead, it uses the dual pixels from both cameras (four Dual Pixels total) for improved photography, great low light performance, and better Portrait mode. 

Either way, these are two powerful phones with plenty to offer. Only the new OnePlus 5T delivers even more in nearly the same package. If you passed on the Pixel 2 XL and Galaxy S8, this might be the perfect alternative.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To

Wait for a Smaller or Non-Existent Punch Hole

Wait for a Smaller or Non-Existent Punch Hole

The Galaxy S20 series features a punch-hole on the display. The Galaxy S21 may not. 

The vice president of Samsung’s R&D group, Yang Byung-duk, says the company plans to do away with the punch-hole, but that the move will take a few years. 

Before this happens, the company plans to reduce the size of the punch-hole on upcoming devices so that it's barely visible. 

A report from MyDrivers, citing South Korean sources, claims Samsung's working to release a "perfect full screen" experience where the front-facing camera is hidden until it's needed.

The Galaxy S20 series doesn't have an under the display camera, but the technology could make its debut on an upcoming phone like the Galaxy S21. 

According to leaker Ice Universe, Samsung is thinking about using under-the-screen camera technology on the Galaxy S21.

He claims the company is currently "evaluating the feasibility of the technology" which means that while possible, it's far from guaranteed. 

In a more recent tweet, Ice Universe says that while "Samsung Display's under-screen camera solution is much ahead of other solutions, the company has "stricter requirements for under-screen camera effects than other brands."

That said, Analyst Ross Young, who has accurately predicted information in the past, doesn't think the Galaxy S21 will have an under panel display.

If you aren't a huge fan of the company's punch-holes, and you're interested in a "perfect full screen" experience, think about waiting for potential design changes on next year's models.
