OnePlus 6T vs OnePlus 5T: Worth the Upgrade?


OnePlus 6T vs OnePlus 5T: Worth the Upgrade? is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

When it comes to choosing your next smartphone there are plenty of choices in 2018. And with the new OnePlus 6T your decision is even more difficult. If you have the still excellent OnePlus 5T and are considering the upgrade, here’s what you need to know and how the two compare.

Each year OnePlus releases two phones. The T model is the second half of the year has a few subtle improvements over the earlier model, which usually gives them a leg-up over devices like the latest Galaxy S9. We’re seeing the same thing this year with the OnePlus 6T.

Coming with a big 6.4-inch display, in-display fingerprint sensor and the latest Android 9 Pie all for $549 it’s a big deal. There’s nothing wrong with the 5T, but it’s a year old and you might be considering that $300 trade-in deal from T-Mobile for the OnePlus 6T. And you should.

In this post, we’ll go over everything you need to know about each smartphone. From the screen sizes, specs, to what’s new and different just one year later. This will help those trying to decide on which phone to buy, if the OP6T is worth the upgrade, or if you should look elsewhere.

Trying to decide which one to buy is no easy task. With excellent big-screen phones readily available like the Galaxy S9+ and Pixel 3 XL, you’ll have to look at other aspects to decide if the 6T has enough to stay with OnePlus, or if you want to try something else.

If you’ve enjoyed the OnePlus 5T over the last year you know exactly what to expect from the new 6T. A great design, decent cameras, blazing fast software, and timely updates. It’s the same thing, only better. And yes, while the screen is bigger and the cameras better, that doesn’t instantly make it worth the upgrade. Even if it’ll only cost you $300 if you trade-in the OnePlus 5T.

While both phones have pros and cons there are a few very important differences that will make or break the upgrade. Like the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, or the increase in battery life that’ll make your OnePlus 5T feel old. Here’s how the two compare by the numbers and what you can expect.
