Not just for fans of OnePlus, it’s the news of the year. The OnePlus 5T is here, the new top model from the Chinese manufacturer, which has come to bring top quality at affordable prices to the customers. And of course, after a quick glance at the key data, the question of all questions arises: “How good is the camera”?
First, let it be known that already had the OnePlus 5 in the connect test with the grade “very good” cut and currently occupies the eighth place in the connect leaderboard. The expectations of the successor are correspondingly high and the first test of the OnePlus 5T shows that these are fulfilled.
Three Sony cameras for optimal pictures and videos
There are a total of three Sony cameras in the OnePlus 5T. In addition to the obligatory front camera for selfies, there are two cameras at the back. It is a wide-angle model with 16 megapixels and with 20 megapixels. Together they make the OnePlus 5T the world’s highest-resolution smartphone and are the basis for pin-sharp images.
A lot of craftsmanship has gone into the dual camera system of OnePlus. For example, the correct alignment of the two cameras to each other is a science in itself. After all, even a small deviation would lead to blurred images. The Chinese engineers have therefore developed a special mount that guarantees that the cameras always keep their position accurate even in the toughest smartphone use. OnePlus has also collaborated with the renowned DxO company from France, which sets standards with its smartphone camera tests.A lot of craftsmanship has gone into the dual camera system of OnePlus.

GREAT POSSIBILITIES THANKS TO DUAL-CAMERA SYSTEM
All in all, the main cameras of the OnePlus 5T open up a lot of possibilities and extraordinary performance. On request, the OnePlus 5T shoots portrait photos with a bokeh effect. The gently washed-out wallpaper is popular with photographers because it brings out the subject very well. In traditional photography, the bokeh arises due to an optical effect. The OnePlus 5T counts it with its 8-core CPU lightning fast into your recordings. Thus, the pretty portrait photos are no longer reserved for the most expensive premium cell phones.
The telephoto zoom enables an optical image magnification of 1.6 times. Because the image is magnified directly from the lens, this is – unlike digital zoom – lossless. For the photographer, this means more flexibility. The software on the OnePlus 5T produces a magnification of an additional 0.4 without visible losses so that OnePlus rightly speaks of a double zoom.

EVEN BETTER PICTURES WITH EVEN LESS LIGHT
Thanks to aperture values of f / 1.7 or f / 2.6, electronic image stabilization and dynamic noise reduction, it is possible to take pictures even in low-light conditions, which many other smartphones have long had to adapt to. If only a little light is available, the second camera in the OnePlus 5T will automatically be used. Its Intelligent Pixel Technology reduces noise on images in a dark environment and improves detail accuracy.
Portrait mode also benefits from software enhancements that provide better noise reduction and the best possible residual light utilization.
In professional mode, you have full freedom over camera settings such as ISO, white balance, shutter speed and focus. In addition, the OnePlus 5T displays a histogram here that allows you to judge the exposure and shoot RAW photos. The front camera also offers a very high resolution with 16 megapixels.
In addition, the redesigned user interface even allows one-handed operation of all settings and modes.
ONEPLUS 5T: HARDWARE, CONNECTIVITY AND PRICE MODERN HARDWARE AT THE TOP LEVEL
In OnePlus 5T OnePlus installed a 6-inch OLED display in 18: 9 format. It covers the current UHD standard with the color space DCI-P3. The display is protected by Gorilla glass 5. The housing made of high-quality, anodized aluminum is only minimally larger than the OnePlus 5.
Inside the OnePlus 5T is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 System on a Chip, which proves to be particularly energy-efficient. Up to 30 percent, longer battery life compared to the previous OnePlus 3T is therefore possible. Incidentally, the battery holds 3,300 mAh. Thanks to OnePlus’ new Dash Charge quick charge process, it can also be recharged within 30 minutes to about 60 percent. OnePlus speaks of “power for a whole day in half an hour”. Within one hour, Dash Charge charges the OnePlus 5T to about 90 percent.
The Snapdragon 835 houses the Qualcomm Kryo 280, an 8-core CPU with a clock of up to 2.45 GHz. He is a whopping 6 or 8 gigabytes of memory to the side (depending on the model). So does the mobile phone even with the use of many apps and/or performance-hungry games the puff so fast not enough.
This is all the truer as OnePlus 5T also uses state-of-the-art storage space (64 or 128 gigabytes, depending on the model). It is connected to the rest of the system via the new UFS 2.1 standard. UFS 2.1 allows significantly more speed when reading and writing data, such as photos, videos and music. By comparison, the speed increase is felt to be as dramatic as switching from hard drive to SSD.
The OnePlus 5T offers extensive connectivity with USB-C 2.0, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and WLAN 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac. The dual-SIM phone supports category 12 LTE with up to 600 Mbps download and all German LTE tapes. Audio fans enjoy the 3.5mm jack for headsets and support for aptX Classic and aptX HD – two standards that dramatically improve the sound of Bluetooth playback.
On the phone runs OxygenOS 4.7, the OnePlus improved by numerous comfort features Android, based on Android Nougat 7.1.1. Thus, one of the reliable strengths of Android, all of which remain intact, is an enhanced user experience that can just as easily be adapted to personal needs. The convenient user interface of the OnePlus 5T is so accessible that it will also convince Android newcomers.
CLASSIC IN DESIGN
As for the chic design of the smartphone, OnePlus remains true to the style of the 5, but reduces the color selection of the 5T on a classic black, which is the most popular color among the fans of the previous models.
