Thus Is The OnePlus 3T against High-End: an Uneven Battle, But Only at The Price

Despite having a very small catalog, OnePlus is one of Chinese brands that arouses more excitement among the staunchest supporters of the Android platform. The company headed by Pete Lau is governed by a different strategy: try to offer the best combination money betting everything on a top, Until now.

The Chinese brand has broken with tradition and, as it had already confirmed a few days ago OnePlus 3 has left him a brother. The 3T OnePlus joins the company’s offering and makes it keeping the same formula in sections such as the design or display, but offering some changes at the level of memory, power and camera. If the first model already stood as a ‘flagship killer’, the new 3T OnePlus gives a twist. We see how it is against some of the high end more highlights of the year.

Perfecting the beast

Just take a look at the images to realize that the OnePlus 3T is not a revolution, if not rather an evolution about what they already knew. OnePlus has decided to keep intact the design, with the only difference that now the model in silver becomes ‘Graphite’ tone ‘Gunmetal’, which has a slightly more metallic finish.

The 3T OnePlus also maintains the same front design with of 5.5 inches and FullHD resolution AMOLED display, He will again covered by a sheet of glass Corning Gorilla Glass 4, as well as the home button which has been placed a fingerprint reader to unlock the device or make payments.

The differences are found in the processor, memory, front camera and battery

The rear camera does not modify its configuration with f/2.0 lens, and 16-Megapixel sensor although OnePlus leverages this renewal to protect it with a sheet of Sapphire Crystal, much stronger. Where there is most notable changes is the front camera whose sensor goes up to 16 megapixels resolution.

But where there are more changes internally, specifically in the processor and memory. The chip that drives the new 3T OnePlus is the 821 Snapdragon, Qualcomm more pointer model that we are being installed in newer models of the brands. It’s a version of the Snapdragon 820 which increases the frequency of the CPU and GPU to offer one point of power.

In the case of the RAM 6 GB of the first model are maintained and will continue to remain a model 64 GB, but in this case added a second version with 128 GB -Although that Yes, we still do not have slot MicroSD. To close, and how it could be otherwise, OnePlus has increased to 3400 mAh battery, always keeping the fast load DASH Charge.

OnePlus 3T against first division

If the first model already had everything to put on the ropes more pointers androids on the scene, the new 3T OnePlus still tightens them nuts a little more. However, all these changes have a consequence in the price, but 439 euros for 479 euros for the 128 GB and 64 GB version They seem one difference more than reasonable taking into account their characteristics.

Under these lines we enclose a comparative chart in which We face some of the most outstanding Android smartphones of the year, recent models including as the Google Pixel or Huawei Matt 9, most with much higher prices, but not so many technical differences.
