Let’s start with the design. The OnePlus 6T solves a problem that could be common in its predecessor. The use of glass in the body made it more vulnerable to falls and slides. However, this time the company has applied a subsequent treatment on the glass layer that manages to simulate both in grip and design, a metal casing. Its resistance is noticeable and is that it has not been marked with our footprints exaggeratedly.

Its general design is elegant, and its dimensions make it comfortable in the hand, and its weight does not make it a nuisance when using it. The front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6, technology that is appreciated has been implemented to give additional protection to the Smartphone.

Another one of the wonders of the OnePlus 6T is its intrepid bet on the notch. Today it is common to see many Smartphones adopting this design to locate the necessary peripherals such as the front camera or speaker, sacrificing the least possible screen space. Anyway, if you are one of those who does not like this notch, you can reconfigure the phone so you do not use it, but of course, losing a bit of screen space.

Let’s now turn to this OnePlus 6T Hands-On Review to analyze the power of this terminal. Many people will get weird that, despite being a revision of a model from a few months ago, the phone does not have substantial changes in its hardware.

The cameras have not changed with respect to the views in the OnePlus 6. And is that the combination that it had with 2 Sony rear sensors of 20MP + 16MP did justice in the terminal. The front camera follows closely, being a Sony IMX371 16MP with a f/2.0 focal aperture.

The operating system is OxygenOS 9.0.3 (which is based on Android 9), specially designed by OnePlus for its terminals, so the fluidity is amazing inside the Smartphone. One point for OnePlus here, and is that the terminal comes without installed applications, so it does not require us to keep anything.
