OnePlus 7T Review: Not very new, but still one of the best phones you can buy

After putting the smartphone world on notice with the best-in-class OnePlus 7 Pro six months ago, OnePlus is back with another smartphone, the OnePlus 7T. In the US, this device will be sold alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro, and there’s not a huge price difference between the two devices. The older 7 Pro is still $669, and the newer 7T is $599—only $70 cheaper.

That price difference does leave a lot of room for differentiation, and sure enough, the 7T is a very similar phone to the 7 Pro. On the one hand, that’s a great thing. The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the best smartphones you can buy, and now the OnePlus 7T is also one of the best smartphones you can buy. But even though the 7T is a great device, it isn’t that new or exciting. Let’s quickly go over what’s different.

Design

Whenever Google, Apple, or Samsung release a smartphone, they usually release two versions of the same phone in different sizes. The OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7 Pro feel a lot like that same strategy, just with two different designs instead of two different sizes and released, inexplicably, six months apart. Those design differences are mostly in the display, the selfie camera, and the rear camera arrangement. Other than that, you’d have to whip out a pair of calipers or a benchmark tool to discern any kind of difference between the two devices.
