OnePlus has just launched Oneplus 7t on 26th September and it’s great on papers as well as real-life. But the only thing that makes us crazy is what about 7 Pro now? 7 Pro was launched on 23 April and this smartphone has shown a lot of new features to the community which is why we feel bad for it as now it’ll be easily replaceable by the successor 7t. You might find a lot of similarities between the two smartphones in the market. But hey let’s be real and talk about differences in this quick review of and whether you should buy this smartphone for an extra of ₹11,000.
The design of OnePlus 7T might look like a downgrade from that of OnePlus 7 Pro which has curved display, but this curved display has it’s own pros and cons. Curved displays may look just beautiful at a single glace but they were also a reason for accidental touches and an uncomfortable-ish video watching experience when placed in the landscape mode. Both 7T and 7T Pro displays have a 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10, and HDR+ which looks just beautiful. The resolution of OnePlus 7T is set to 1080P+ vs QHD Plus on OnePlus 7 Pro but this difference is not at all visible at all until and unless you compare them side by side.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with up to 12 GB of RAM, creating a benchmark-setting incredible performance until 7t was launched. Oneplus 7t has Snapdragon’s latest offering Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ that company claims to have 4.2 percent faster CPU and 15 percent faster GPU than 855. Unlike 7t, you get to choose among the 6,8, or 12GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal non-expandable storage varients, whereas 7t you’re stuck with just 8 Gb RAM and 128/256GB of internal non-expandable storage but most people will be just fine with 8GB of RAM.
OnePlus 7T retains the same triple camera setup that comes with OnePlus 7 Pro. Both of them have a 48MP main sensor, 16MP ultra-wide sensor, and an 8MP telephoto sensor to get nice and crispy shots of the objects. But the new OnePlus 7T has a circular camera setup whereas 7 Pro has camera vertically aligned. 7t also brings out new macro mode that allows you to get super-close to the subject without losing focus. Macro mode is a hardware enhancement, so it would not be available to 7 Pro by updates in the future. Oneplus 7t has improved video recording capabilities as it can now shoot 4K videos at 60 fps and now it combines EIS and the OIS to create the super stable mode that is super interesting to watch.
The battery also gets a mild update on 7t to 3800mAh when compared to the 3700mAh unit from the OnePlus 7. However, Warp Charge 30T on 7t is claimed to recharge the battery 18 percent faster than the Warp Charge 30 system on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Speaking of Oxygen OS, OnePlus has given it meaningful update on its latest 7t. 7t is based on Android 10 out of the box and as we saw with the Android 10 update for the OnePlus 7 series, it brings in a couple of new features as well as custom UI changes to make the experience better than ever.
Apart from the processor and charging speed, which is in favor of newly launched OnePlus 7T, there’s not much of a difference between the two phones. OnePlus still offers dual stereo front-facing speakers like the 7 Pro with Dolby Atmos that makes the sound crystal clear and the same super-fast in-display fingerprint scanner. The new upgraded vibration motor on the OnePlus 7T delivers more natural haptic feedback. Apart from these, both of these smartphones offer great overall experience which something that cannot be described in this quick review.
OnePlus 7T offers almost every feature that OnePlus 7 Pro has to offer. The only reason to pick the OnePlus 7 Pro is the higher resolution screen but the full-HD+ and a pop-up camera. OnePlus 7T is a major upgrade over OnePlus 7 and is even better than OnePlus 7 Pro in some aspects.
By now you would have properly understood the differences amongst the two smartphones through this quick review. If not then to sum it up I would say if you are someone who is too much into looks and macro- photography isn’t your thing, you should buy Oneplus 7 Pro, but if you prefer some basic but important advancements like better haptic feedback, macro mode,18 percent faster charging than do not have to spend an extra of 11,000 INR and should definitely go for OnePlus 7t.
