Author’s Opinion

The OnePlus 6T, being a successor of the company’s OnePlus 6, is an amazing smartphone in almost every department. The configuration, amazing set of camera and the superfine display reveal its feature courage. The battery is increased and is decent enough to provide a backup though out the day.

As of now, there are only two cons — no headphone jack and no physical LED Notification light.

Overall, Considering the price and overall aspects of the smartphone, we will recommend this smartphone to users who are planning to buy a premium smartphone with a budget around 40K. If you own OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 5T or any other smartphone with high-end specs then skip 6T.

Note: These are my initial impressions of the smartphone. For Full Flash Review, Stay tuned with our Instagram Page.
