Reviewers from Arstechnica have found the following[***]:
In the US, this device will be sold alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro. The 7 Pro is still the more impressive phone, with a motorized pop-up camera. With a notch design, the 7T looks like a lot of other smartphones out there. The best feature of the 7 Pro, the 90Hz display, is still here.
Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
The new OnePlus 7T is a mid-range phone with a 6.55-inch screen. It features a 16-MP 117-degree ultra-wide camera alongside its 48-MP main cam and 12-MP 2x telephoto cam, which brings triple cameras to the non-pro OnePlus 7 for the first time. Sadly, after axing the headphone jack on its phones earlier this spring, the 7T's only port is a USB-C connection on the bottom.
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7T isn't as "premium" as the OnePlus 7 Pro, but it's still made of the best bits. It has a 90Hz screen, a triple rear camera that takes excellent low-light shots and a fast-charging battery. The phone will be available unlocked and, in the US, through T-Mobile too.
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7T is the most intuitive high-end smartphone you can buy. It's not as wide as many big-screen phones, like the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but it still has a big screen. OxygenOS is neatly organized, doesn't require much learning, and is free from massive design alterations.
Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
At €759, the OnePlus 7T Pro offers a Snapdragon 855+, 8GB of RAM, Warp Charge 30T quick charging, and a 90Hz AMOLED display. I prefer the 7T to its Pro version. A slightly more powerful camera, the absence of a notch on a 6.67-inch larger screen and a lower battery life are the main reasons for this price difference.
Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7T is available in two different colors. Compared to the OnePlus 7, the T model now has a third camera to cover the ultrawide-angle range. The camera takes portraits with either the telephoto or the main camera. On the video side, the new Super Stabilization is quite useful.
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
OnePlus 7T has been introduced in India now, and we've received a review device. The device is significantly longer and minimally slimmer than the OnePlus 7, so that there's more screen area. This year, OnePlus offers only one storage version, namely 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $599 OnePlus 7T is not actually a sequel to the 7 Pro. The screen is flat, not curved; the extra edges make the difference. There's very little bloatware on this phone; OnePlus relies on Google's apps. The phone supports HD calling with EVS for the best call quality.
Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
The 7T sports a Full HD AMOLED display with rich colors and the screen looks beautiful. You have two pre-set color options: vivid and natural, where the natural one features more toned down colors. The 7T features a brand new vibration motor that is much stronger than before and provides a sharper, more concise vibration feedback for all sorts of notifications.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7T has an upgraded 6.5in Fluid AMOLED display. It ships with a new 20:9 aspect ratio too. The display is as near to bezel-less as you'll get without ditching the front-facing camera or implementing a pop-up solution. It's also impressively thin at only 8.1mm – down from 8.2mm of the standard OnePlus 7. The smartphone is available to buy right now via OnePlus.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7T shares a similar design language with the OnePlus 7. There's the same slightly curved back and a waterdrop notch at the top of the screen. Unlike previous 'T' upgrades, you won't struggle to tell the 7 and 7T apart. The price was $599 / £549 / ₹37,999 for the 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage version at launch. That price has since dropped - after the company unveiled the OnePlus 8 - to $499 / €34,999.
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The $599 OnePlus 7T includes many features that you would expect in a flagship phone in a trimmed-down and cheaper package. The 7T might not be the largest phone in the world, but if you're coming from an iPhone XS, Galaxy S9, S10 or Pixel 3, it will feel a bit unwieldy. The iPhone 11 lacks a zoom camera, so it cannot pull in anywhere near the same level of detail as the 7T.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7T is one of the best mid-range phones on the market. It has an upgraded Fluid AMOLED display, more powerful CPU, better fast charging and a new triple-sensor rear camera. The design looks and feels as good as it did on the OnePlus 7 and 6T and overall I have no complaints.
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The 7T replaces last year's 6T in OnePlus's circle of life, which sees new phones launch every six months. It is set to compete with smartphones such as the Google Pixel 3a and Huawei P30 in the mid-market. The Chinese brand has perhaps made the biggest leaps in camera technology, although upgrades across battery, screen and software all combine to provide a worthy upgrade. A triple-camera arrangement now sits within an unusual spherical notch with a dual-LED flash.
