It is a button that has three positions and allows to physically configure three performance profiles, according to the Android notifications to highlight as all, priority, or none. It remembers a little to what the iPhones carry, but more complete. It is really useful when you get used to it. We do not forget that there is also fingerprint sensor, and it is placed under the screen and it is generously sized compared to other solutions.
With AMOLED Display, the overall performance of the screen is remarkable, and not at all limp with respect to the rest of the features of the phone.
The screen retains the same size as the previous three models, which is 5.5 inches with a pixel density of 401 DPI. As for protection, it has a Gorilla Glass 4 with a pre-installed protector.
OnePlus 3T has very good levels of brightness and great colors. The phone is decently seen outdoors, since they have placed a layer with double polarization. Sometimes it presents the contents in a less realistic way, which the users find quite attractive.
6GB of RAM for Snapdragon 821
As a vital section in OnePlus, each generation of the phone tries to have the most modern chipset offered by Qualcomm. Now the best thing on the market is the Snapdragon 821, and it is one of the protagonists of OnePlus 3T.
The four cores of the OnePlus 3T SD281 run slightly faster than the last year’s model SD820, going from 2.15 to 2.35GHz. According to Qualcomm, its chipset is 10% faster in load time of applications with 5% more powerful graphics. It also comes prepared to play with virtual reality at the level of development tools and it accepts much more capable cameras.
128GB of Memory
Here the memory is fixed and there is no way to extend it, but almost we should not worry about finding two very powerful steps as the most basic gives us 64GB, achieved with a memory of type UFS 2.0, three times faster and more efficient than eMMC5.1 chip. The most striking thing in OnePlus 3T is a superior option with 128GB, an amount that only some high-end phones let us choose.
Reversible Connector 2.0
It seems to be conditioned by the proprietary DASH Charge system, which does not get along with USB 3.1 implementations, something Qualcomm offers with its Quick Charge alternative.
16 Megapixel Front Camera
The front camera is a protagonist by doubling its megapixels to 16, in a measure that seems more aimed at liking in Asian markets where the selfie is valued high. One of the points is the front camera, which now captures twice as many pixels, but this greater definition does not mean that it presents much better quality.
