OnePlus 6T: 90-Day Review

  • Published on Feb 6, 2019
  • Our OnePlus 6T review is finally here, after spending 90 days with the phone. In our OnePlus 6T review we dive into the similarities and differences the phone shares with the original OnePlus 6 and also compare its features to the new Honor View 20 which is probably the best OnePlus contender we've seen in a long time.
    The OnePlus 6T is an incredible smartphone and offers the best bang for your buck if you're looking for a flagship Android device.

    Hope when the Oneplus 7 comes out, they'll bring the 6t to the Sprint network like they did with Verizon when 6t first came out.

    I used the note, iPhone and one plus. Note is by far the best but because of pricing one plus is my killer choice. Love it and not regretting it. iPhone in no offense is a piece of sh*t

    Why buy a phone to get the launcher you want when you can just change to the Google launcher? Or Nova? Or any other number of options... this IS Android after all.

      Having a clean Android experience is more than just having a clean launcher. There are quick settings, notification panel, lock screen, main setting app and many other features to consider.

    I think the one plus is water proof but they don't advertise it because they'd have to raise prices due to cost of certification

    Installed a glass screen protector on my 6t and it basically killed the fingerprint scanner. Sad but luckily the face unlock works great.

    My problem is that OP6T costs the same as S9+, and I still don't know which one to buy... I don't like S9+ because of the bad battery, but I'm not sure how much the 6T camera is competitive with S9+... Please help :)

    Scan your primary finger again so that it has multiple points to recognize. The machine is a beast for half the price of any other samsung/apple product out there

      My guess is it depends on the quality of your fingerprints. Some people (usually older) have very faint prints.

    Did u have problems with battery life comparing to first days? In my first days i had like 7 or 8 hours with normal use like gaming and Instagram etc, and in think with the 9.0.11 version, i only get 5 hours with a lightier use xs
    ( Already rebooted the phone like the Brand said me to do but its the same ...)

    I chose the OP 6t because of the bigger battery, smaller notch,smaller chin, and gorilla glass 6, but not gonna lie I do miss the headphone jack

    The Fingerprint Sensor works for me 90-95% of the time and it has even got faster with time. I use the right thumb most times and the left one a few times. The left one is still that tid bit slower however the right one over the 100 days has become as quick as the rear FP Sensor. I even managed to get the McLaren Edition animation and that for some weird reason has increased the unlocking speed even more.

    I've been rockin' my OnePlus 6 since it went on sale on the website back in May. I absolutely love this phone. I had Androids in the past (HTC and Samung Galaxy's), before I switched to an iPhone 5, then 6 plus. I researched constantly before narrowing it down to the Pixel 2 XL and the OnePlus 6. 300+ dollars just for a better camera? Nah. I love everything about my phone, and I'll probably buy another OnePlus product, unless Google's Pixel 4 makes me think otherwise.

    • Phandroid
      Phandroid  9 months ago

      I sure did. There's a difference between basic components and good implementation. Compared to what Samsung, Huawei, LG and other OEMsbare doing, the camera hardware on the OnePlus 6T is pretty basic, but the results are not.

      @Joseph Capocci Actually, I bought the 6t and instead of keeping it for myself, I gave it to my fiancé and kept my 6. LMFAO!!!!!
      You don't know nearly as much as you think you do, Einstein. But you stick with your theories, smart guy, they seem to be working for you.😂😂😂😂

    • Joseph Capocci
      Joseph Capocci 7 months ago

      The 6t is a larger screen, less chin at the bottom, more notifactions at the top, no notch and when you put them side by side looks much cleaner and more immersive. The battery life is much better on the 6t, alot better. Also the 6t starts at 128 gigs, there is no 64 gig version and its the same price for base version, this means anyone who bought the 6 with 64 gigs got ripped off because the 6t 128 gig model sold for same price. speaker is also louder. When you put both phones side by side they look nothing alike, 6t is much better looking. I could go on but no need to. I think your a little mad you bought the 6 and didnt wait. LOL

    I don't have any problems with the in screen finger print scanner, it scans right, 99% of the time, i just pay attention to how my finger should be placed, after a few weeks it became muscle memory and i don't think about it and get like i said 99% of the time, and that 1% is user error.

      If you need a phone now, just get the OnePlus 6 or 6T. You can always play the waiting game, but there is always something new coming up so you could be left waiting forever.

    Seems to me that the Oneplus covers alot more LTE bands than the View 20. IMO, using the View 20 in the U.S. is risky in terms of coverage.

    • Phandroid
      Phandroid  9 months ago

      Correct. The View 20cdoes have LTE coverage on AT&T and tmobile, but not all bands. OnePlus 6T is better here in the US. Over in Europe, they are both about even.

  • Rero
    Rero 9 months ago +2

    Spreading misinformation with the IP rating. OnePlus doesnt have one cause its not worth it to pay for the rating. It is at least the equivalent of an IP67 with MANY youtubers showing it in action.

    • Rero
      Rero 9 months ago

      @Phandroid what are you even talking about? It shows the phone can clearly withstand water equivalent to a IP67. You cant just dismiss those tests when they clearly show it being resistant for a long period of time.

    • Phandroid
      Phandroid  9 months ago

      I'm sorry, but just because a RU-clip puts the phone in water and it survives does not mean that it has equivalent IP rating. You can also find quite a few tests where people tried to put the phone in water and it did not survive. An official IP rating means that there have been testing to ensure that the phone will service within certain conditions. That testing was not done.

    This device will survive a drop in water. Someone submerge the 6T plus in to a glass of water up to five minutes without any damage to the device.

    • Phandroid
      Phandroid  9 months ago

      The pressure inside a glass of water is dramatically different than being submerged up to 1 meter or more. The pressure from the water is what forces the liquid inside the cracks on the phone. This device should be fine if you get it wet in the rain or spill some water on it.
