User Review


This phone is snappy and responsive. For it’s price range it feels like a flagship 1000 plus phone. Very light phone too. This phone is perfect for people on the go. This phone does not have wireless charging but man does it have something better. Warp charging charges this phone in 30 plus minutes making wireless charging useless. I hope to keep this phone as long as I can.

This phone is a beast. The specs are comparable to alot of flagships that cost quite a bit more. I don’t know of another phone with 12 GB ram and 256 GB storage for $600. It runs the SD 865 chipset which is last year’s chip but it is blazing fast. The 120hz refresh rate makes scrolling buttery smooth. The in screen fingerprint sensor is very responsive. I got the aqua green color and it’s a very attractive phone. It feels premium in the hand. I got this phone as an early bday gift for myself. I’m extremely pleased with this phone and do recommend it.

Review: Android Authority

The OnePlus 8T is a slight bump from its predecessor with a design that’s more in line with the firm’s mid-range OnePlus Nord. It’s a great smartphone with a lot to give, but lacks a flagship-level camera and doesn’t do much to stand out. Read More

Review: Android Police

The phone is hefty in a way that feels premium. It’s technically slightly thicker than the prior OnePlus 8, but you’d never notice it in hand — especially once you’ve got a case on it — and that extra space comes with a larger 4,500mAh battery. Sadly, the unlocked version of the phone is not IP rated.  Read More

Review: Wired

The 8T supports “sub-6,” the type of 5G that offers marginally faster speeds than 4G LTE with decent range and coverage, but it doesn’t have “millimeter wave.”

OnePlus’ software update schedule feels like a step behind. You get two years of Android version upgrades and three years of bi-monthly security updates, Pixels and Samsungs get three years of version upgrades and monthly security updates. Read More
