OnePlus 5 & 5T: Comparative Review

Apart from the latest OnePlus magic in the OnePlus 6, OnePlus 5 and 5T rate among the brand’s very best smartphones to date. In fact, you can comfortably rate them with the top smartphones in their category.

Here, we will consider at the similarities and differences between these spectacular smartphones.

Design

There is not much to distinguish between the two smartphones when it comes to design. The smartphones feature full metal body, although there are some noticeable differences to the weight and dimensions.

The OnePlus 5 comes in at 154.2 x 74.1 x 7.3mm and 153g, while the 5T comes in a dimension of 156.1 x 75 x 7.3mm and 162g. This means the 5T slightly longer, broader and heftier than the OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 5S only comes in black, while the OnePlus 5 is obtainable in both black and grey.

The most obvious visual change for the OnePlus 5T is the location of the fingerprint scanner, which was moved to the back. The home button has also been removed to sit below the screen on the OnePlus 5.

Display

Another noticeable difference can be noticed in the screen resolution. The OnePlus 5T has grown to an impressive 6 inches and a resolution of 1080 x 2160 while the OnePlus 5 settles for a-5.5 inch screen and a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920, although the pixel density is 401 pixels per inch on both smartphones.

Both phones also boast an AMOLED screen, just like the popular Samsung Galaxy S8 and latest Apple smartphones like the iPhone X. it is worth nothing that the OnePlus 5T has a super widescreen 18:9 aspect ratio which can be compared to those of Samsung’s latest products, while the OnePlus 5 has a more orthodox 16:9.

Camera

There is a slight upgrade in the main camera quality of the OnePlus 5T. There is a dual-lens 16 MP and an additional 20MP blend, just like on the OnePlus 5. While the OnePlus 5’s 20 MP secondary sensor has an f/2.6 aperture, the OnePlus 5T features f/1.7, which should increase its low light performance.

There are also some developments to the camera features for the OnePlus 5T. An instance is that you can use the fingerprint scanner to take pictures and as well navigate the app with gesture controls, which makes a one-handed operation cooler.

Battery

There is no difference in the battery aspect, as both smartphones have a 3, 300mAh and support fast charging but not wireless charging.

Performance

Both OnePlus 5 and 5T boast a commendable high-end Snapdragon 835 chipset and either 6GB or 8GB of RAM depending on the model you are going for. Also, both smartphones come with an option of 64GB or 128GB of storage, run Android Nougat and will be updated to the popular Android Oreo. There are some variances in their software though.

The lack of a home button on the OnePlus 5T largely indicates that the entire direction finding is done onscreen with gesture controls, and the brand has added some new features including the ability to duplicate your apps which means users can login to various social media accounts with more than one account at the same time.
