Digital Camera World Verdict

The OnePlus 8T is a beautiful phone. Glass and metal join forces with a great screen to impress, and it’s powerful too. The camera system may be a similar spec to plenty of OnePlus’s before it, but its implementation on the 8T is great, with images and video packing stacks of detail. The lack of a telephoto lens does hold it back, and despite its mighty fast charging, the OnePlus 8T’s battery could last longer, especially when gaming. Still, a solid, well-priced option for anyone upgrading from the OnePlus 6T.

The OnePlus 8T is official, shaking up the line’s design and returning to a flat-screen finish, it combines flagship power with a stunning 120Hz display and very fast charging.

Pricing is a touch confusing this time around. In the US, the phone can be had for $749, with 256GB storage and 12GB RAM. In the UK, it’s available from £549 with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM, or the higher capacity version (256GB storage and 12GB RAM) is at £649. Confused? Indeed - and we haven’t even come onto the regional differences with colors or the price in India.
