With the growing users base of the OnePlus smartphones year on year, every time the company launches a new smartphone, would it be wise to switch from your existing OnePlus 6 to OnePlus 6T?
Well with the launch of the OnePlus 6T, the smartphone sure grabs all the attention of OnePlus lovers as the phone gets an updated design when compared to OnePlus 6, but looking at both the phones side by side, there certainly is a lot that is similar about both the devices.
Although the OnePlus 5T users might be really excited about the new OnePlus 6T, the same can't be predicted about the OnePlus 6 users. Following are some interesting reasons why switching from OnePlus 6 to OnePlus 6T would be a bad idea.
A slow in-display fingerprint sensor
OnePlus is known for its fast unlocking features via Face Unlock and fingerprint sensor, in which the OnePlus 6 offers both but with the OnePlus 6T, the company decided to ditch the physical fingerprint sensor and went for an in-display fingerprint sensor, which happens to be slower than the physical sensors and happens to be in its early stages.
Removal of the headphone jack
One of the biggest disappointments of the new OnePlus 6T is the exclusion of the 3.5mm headphone jack, which has always been there in all the previous OnePlus smartphones. The no option of 3.5mm jack will surely put off a lot of OnePlus lovers that happen to still use the wired earphones.
The reason for not including the 3.5mm jack in the OnePlus 6T is a bigger battery and inclusion of in-display fingerprint sensor that left less space for the company to include a port in the device.
The new OnePlus 6T comes with the same camera units of the OnePlus 6 that includes the 16 Megapixel + 20 Megapixel configuration with f/1.7 aperture and OIS + EIS. On the front also is the same 16 Megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture.
This means that there won't be a major difference in the image quality of both the cameras of OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T. The only addition on the OnePlus 6T camera was the Nightscape mode that gives better low-light photography via HDR algorithms that is now available on OnePlus 6 via software updates.
Although there is a slight change on the outside of both the phones, but the internals happen to be the same in both the smartphones. Both smartphones run on Snapdragon 845 processor and come in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, which means similar performance.
