You Have Other Options in Early 2019
And last but not least, another reason you might want to pass on the OnePlus 6T is that you have other options right now, and even more coming in early 2019.
They might not be as affordable or have as big of a screen, but there are several excellent alternatives available now or coming early next year. We're already to December, so all the crazy cool phones for the first half of 2019 are right around the corner. From the Galaxy S10 to an even better OnePlus 7.
You can get the OnePlus 6 with a similar experience at a discount. Or devices like the Galaxy S9 can often be found for under $600 these days. So while that's still a few dollars more, it has additional features.
Consider this, at $579 the Galaxy S9 has a big screen, wireless charging, water-resistance, expandable storage, a 3.5mm headphone jack and other things. Basically, it's all about what you want, need, or can afford.
Just know that you have other options right now, and you have plenty of options coming in early 2019. We're even hearing Samsung is planning an affordable Galaxy S10, then a regular S10 and a bigger S10+. Three different models to compete with OnePlus, Apple, Google and others.
Also, leaks recently confirmed a Google Pixel 3 Lite with a big screen, great camera, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It could be the perfect stock Android budget phone you've been waiting for, and it's coming in early 2019.
The OnePlus 6T a great phone, there's no question about that. How badly do you need it though, is the question.
