The OnePlus 10T returns to the winning formula of high specs and low price ($649)!

Four months after the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro, OnePlus is back with a new device, the OnePlus 10T. After we beat the OnePlus 10 out earlier this year for its high price, the OnePlus 10T looks like a decent correction: It’s $649, $250 cheaper than the $899 OnePlus 10 Pro.

Let’s look for the $250 missing on the spec sheet: The OnePlus 10T is slightly faster than the more expensive OnePlus 10 Pro, thanks to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 SoC. This has a slight 10 percent MHz faster boost than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and shifts in benchmarks around that amount. This 10 percent speed increase finally brings Qualcomm’s 2022 CPU performance back to the level of the 2021 chip — previously it was a bit slower.

The phone still has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (and a new class 16GB/256GB for another $100). There is still a fingerprint reader on the screen and a USB-C port. The battery is 4 percent smaller at 4800 mAh instead of 5,000 mAh, and wireless charging is gone. The phone does not support Wi-Fi 6E (only Wi-Fi 6), and the cameras seem to be all low-key, as the phone now has a 50-megapixel Sony IMX776 camera, then for fun it’s only 8 MP ultrawide and a 2 MP macro camera.

The 10T has a 6.7-inch, 120Hz, 2412 x 1080 OLED display with a dynamic refresh rate that switches between 120, 90 and 60Hz, depending on the content. The more expensive 10 Pro features a higher resolution, 3216 x 1440, and a more dynamic refresh rate that can be scaled down to 1 Hz to save more power. For the price, I’ll take both tradeoffs. We have always said that phone screens have too many pixels, and the extra resolution is not visible in real life. The 10T’s screen is still 394dpi, which is perfectly fine.

I actually prefer the cheaper 10T screen over the OnePlus 10, just because it’s flat. Most of the major brands from Samsung, OnePlus, and Google use a curved screen along the long edges. Years ago, it was technically impressive to be able to bend an OLED screen, but in real life, these screens only seem to have downsides. They distort any video or text along the edges of the phone, and lead to more accidental touches on the screen. There is absolutely no point in curving the screen. OnePlus may view it as some kind of cost-cutting measure, but in fact, the flat screen is a huge improvement.

Another cost-cutting measure: OnePlus’ three-position wake switch missing from OnePlus 10T. Previous OnePlus phones had a physical switch on the side that changed between playing sound, vibrating only, or no sound/no vibration. Send OnePlus via a file seven paragraphs The PDF is titled “Statement about no alert skater,” as if the company thought it would respond to some massive controversy. The concluding paragraph even promises: “While the OnePlus 10T doesn’t have the alert slider, that doesn’t mean it will be removed from all future OnePlus devices.” I wouldn’t have paid much attention to removing it and wouldn’t have noticed if OnePlus hadn’t said anything. Most phones don’t have a wake up key because the volume keys work just fine!
