Unfortunately, the OnePlus 5T doesn't feature a microSD card slot, so in this case, what you see is what you get, storage-wise. Practically speaking, the OnePlus 5T might as well be the same phone, with all the buttons and switches in the same place. While it was earlier expected that the phone would be priced slightly higher and the OnePlus 5 would remain on sale, it is now known that the OnePlus 5 is to be discontinued and completely replaced by the OnePlus 5T, which has maintained pricing at the same level.

The new OnePlus 5T builds upon the original OnePlus 5 with a new screen, a new camera, and updated software. One feature that is new is the facial recognition. OnePlus also introduced the new Face Unlock feature with the OnePlus 5T smartphone. During the OnePlus 5T's announcement yesterday, OnePlus also took the time to provide an idea of when it would land on the OnePlus 5. The device also feels good to hold in the hand even though it has the same footprint as that of the OnePlus 5.

The OnePlus 5T has a bezel-less display, with which, the device looks futuristic and sleek.

While the iPhone X is covered front and back in glass, and the sides in stainless steel, the OnePlus 5T is made of much lighter anodised aluminum.

VerdictDespite the glaring price difference, the OnePlus 5T and iPhone X are fairly evenly matched on paper.

OnePlus 5T vs LG V30 first look
OnePlus 5T will get stable Android 8.0 Oreo update early next year

OnePlus 5T sports 18:9 aspect ratio display with 1080 x2160 resolution. It has gained the backing of O2 in the United Kingdom, which sells last year's OnePlus 3, a significant consumer confidence boost for a relatively unknown brand.

The phone still runs OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat which is quite a disappointment, Android 8.0 Oreo is out for months and OnePlus should have launched the phone with latest flavour of Android. OnePlus says the 20MP lens will take care of photography matters when in low-light conditions by grouping pixels in batches of four so that more light and details are captured thanks to something known as Intelligent Pixel Technology.

In comparison, the iPhone X also offers a dual camera set-up which features optical zoom.

The front camera is identical to the OnePlus 5, which boasts a 16-megapixel Sony IMX371 sensor of 1-micron pixel size and an aperture of f/2.0. While it has the same battery as the OnePlus 5T, it does support wireless charging, and it offers Samsung DeX and Bixby, both of which lack from the new OnePlus smartphone.
