Should you Buy it?
OnePlus 8T is a good 5G handset launch by the company if you’re users who are on phones that came before the OnePlus 7 even it is a better option for OnePlus 8 users also as it comeover in every comparison with OnePlus 8. It is an excellent upgrade model for all OnePlus users.
OnePlus has tried its best to leave some edge for the OnePlus 8 Pro, but this clearly comes in the middle. In fact, with the performance of the past Ts, the OnePlus 6T, 7T and now the 8T, consumers might just be inclined to wait for this and not buy the base model, which also faces heat from the more affordable Nord series.
The Smartphone is not a better competitor for any of the OnePlus phones that have come recently like OnePlus Nord but clearly is a better phone with more time spent on perfecting the hardware and software. This is now one of the top options available in the market for those who are hunting for an Android flagship and the 5G.
