As OnePlus 7 is approaching, let's talk about why 6T is still good – Review Geek

OnePlus 6T was the best Android phone released in 201

8. It can be one of the best Android phones I've ever used. Let's take a look at the things that make this a good phone when its successor approaches.

Looking back at OP6T since I reviewed it

I reviewed OnePlus 6T back in December almost five months ago. Considering the problems I had with the company in the past, it was my first go with a OnePlus device. But the times changed and after a conversation with the company it was clear that it had become a lot since the days of users beating their phones or women to pull the OP logo on their bodies.

My name is "I think" for the simple reason that OnePlus proved me – a tough critic of the company since day one – that it knew how to make a really fucking good phone. However, what I didn't realize was how much it had won me.

I told myself that I would go back to my Pixel 2 XL after the review. But a week later I still hadn't changed my SIM card. Two weeks gone, then three weeks … you get the idea. Then I struck myself one day: I didn't want to change. I had no desire to go back to my Pixel, which is what I would say at the time was "the best Android phone you can buy."

So not only did I admit that OnePlus made a good phone with 6T, but I also acknowledged something I never thought would say: I prefer it over Pixel.

But even now it's something I stand in.

OnePlus 6T is the reference value for other Android phones

Now there is a head that I never thought I would write. Calling a OnePlus phone – not a Pixel or even a Galaxy – the cream of the Android crop is an interesting concept. But man, this phone has been a beast since the day I popped it out of the box.

Every Android phone I've ever used has suffered from many of the same problems, with the largest being . After a few months of use, apps are installed and uninstalled, and – let's be really here-heavier than the average user, 6T is still an absolute speed demo. It has kept pace better than any other Android phone I've ever used.

And this rule applies across the board. One of the most annoying problems I've had with all other Android phones, from the original Pixel to the Galaxy S9 is the Android Auto team with my car's main unit. I would connect the phone and wait. And wait. And wait a little more. Sometimes it was minutes before AA was ready to go. Minutes! But 6T has been a champ day and day out. I connect it, AA starts and away we go. No sweat. I love it.

But performance is only half the problem that plagues most other Android phones. There is another big battery life. While Android has historically been given a bad rope to have terrible battery life, recent years and newer Android versions have done a lot to fix the problem. But as a performance, every Android phone I've ever used has fallen off a cliff at some point, it's like a switch, and suddenly the battery is rubbish.

as a performance, this is a problem that OnePlus 6T has not had. That being said, I must also keep my expectations in check. I've only used the phone for about five months. Still, I have seen absolutely no degradation in the battery life over that time. In fact, it might have got better . I can't quantify it for sure but it feels safe like that. It's one of the only Android phones I've ever owned in my life that can consistently skip the charger two or three nights a week. It's wild.

It's still hard to believe that the best Android phone you can buy is also one of the most affordable (comparatively, anyway). For as little as $ 550, it's a giant steal.

Its imperfections are hardly a compromise

It's no regret that OnePlus 6T is a great phone. But it still falls in some areas. The largest that gets the most users is the camera. It is a good, useful camera of all standards. It's just not the best. If you compare it to an iPhone X series, Pixel or even a Galaxy camera, it won't come out on top. It's just not.

But sometimes we have to remind you that just because something is not "the best" does not mean that it is automatically the worst. Funny Fact: I took my favorite picture I've ever shot on a smartphone with OnePlus 6T.

6T's fax lens shot the picture above. And, according to most standards, it's a pretty great picture, especially considering the conditions: a dark room full of people, lots of movement, smoke and who knows what else. They were not the perfect conditions for shooting good pictures. But 6T delivered a picture that I love.

In my review, I also called out not to be waterproof and the lack of wireless charging. While the latter is still a bit of a luxury, the former is something I would still expect to see on a phone of this caliber, and I stand for that criticism. Having said that, I have become 6T wet on several occasions, and that has been good. It has never been completely underwater, but I have had it in the rain and knitted in my jersey pocket on the bike where it may not have been exposed to more sweat than it should have been. It's still good. (Probably because, as OnePlus 7, it is probably waterproof without being IP certified. It is a stupid distinction that led to OP dropping a horrible video that teased the 7th non-official water seal. Or)

At this time, the 6T's fingerprint sensor in display is the only thing I don't like about it – but it is also generally seen. In-display fingerprint sensors are a solution to a problem no one had; They are slower, have proven to be less secure, and is generally not a good experience, I still prefer back-mounted fingerprint sensors across the board.

A Look At The Future [19659013] OnePlus 7 is just around the corner. Two different models – 7 and 7 Pro – will be announced on May 14th. 7 is rumored to be a marginal upgrade compared to 6T, with a very similar form factor, appearance and set of features. It will have a faster processor and better camera. These are the things that someone would like to see from a new phone model.

But 7 Pro looks to take OnePlus to a whole new level. It will have a triple camera set on the back, with a 48MP primary switch, a telephoto lens and an ultra-angle sensor. The front camera will be motorized and pop up from the top of the screen instead of being housed in a notch like 6T or 7. It will have more RAM and a larger screen. It will be a beast.

And I can't wait to take care of it, because for the first time in a long time I'm excited about a new phone. At a time when everything that is not a collapsible look is "boring", OnePlus still gives a fresh air in a way that is meaningful and should provide some kind of meaningful upgrade over, yes, everything else out there.
