Design

The new Aquamarine Green colour looks great, and having a glossy finish. The OnePlus 8T also comes in a Lunar Silver colour, which is said to have a matte finish. The camera module is shifted to the left instead of being in the middle. This year is all about the squarish and rectangular rear camera design. The OnePlus 8T has a rectangular camera module with 4 camera sensors.

The primary camera can capture images with good details, and dynamic, though there could be colours oversaturation at some scenes.

Performance

OnePlus 8T uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, which is an interesting choice.

General

It is remarkable smartphone to use in day-to-day usage. It is absolutely lightening fast at opening apps, switching the apps, and multi-tasking. However, the phone does tend to kill off background apps rather quickly due to aggressive RAM management, so heavier apps like games don’t stay open in the background for long.

Battery Life

The OnePlus 8T have 4,500mAh battery. The slightly bigger battery is required due to the 120Hz refresh rate. You can stretch the battery life little longer, but not significantly longer. The phone will not last for full day if you are sing both 120Hz and Always-on Display. On normal days, a fully charged phone in the morning will drop to 15-20 percent by night.
