Now if OnePlus’ smart device updates in 2015 confused you, you’re not alone. The handset on sale is not the OnePlus 7 Pro that made it onto our list of favorite midrange mobile phones, but the 2 are actually rather similar. The OnePlus 7T debuted in the fall of 2019 and it took some premium includes from the Pro while devaluing other features. It’s a little smaller and significantly lighter than the Pro, making it a lot easier to hold. The 7T really has a slightly faster chipset than the Pro, too, operating on a Snapdragon 855+ processor. It’s just available with 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, which is different from the Pro since you have more memory and storage alternatives with the latter.
However probably the greatest distinction between the OnePlus 7T and the Pro is the screen. The 7T has a 6.5-inch 1080 p AMOLED display screen while the Pro has a 6.7-inch 1440 p AMOLED screen. Both support a 90 Hz refresh rate, but show geeks will likely desire the higher resolution that features the Pro. The 7T also has a slightly smaller sized battery than the Pro, however in our short testing, the handset lasted nearly 2 days before requiring another charge. It likewise supports the Warp Charge 30 T feature that guarantees to charge the gadget fully within one hour.
While those differences are very important, unless you’re a stickler for big, gorgeous display screens, you’re not missing out on much by opting for the OnePlus 7T instead of the Pro. The 7T is a strong Android smartphone that, at this list price, is probably as close as we’ll get in the US to the value used by the EUR399/$475 OnePlus Nord in the UK and Europe. If you’re tempted by this offer, you’ll have to make a choice soon– B&H Photo’s sale rate expires at the end of the day today.
