OnePlus 10T: a balanced smartphone
How to choose the best possible smartphone, the one that will become our daily companion? In parallel with tests and news, Frandroid has made it its specialty to advise you and help you in your purchasing process. There are now dozens and dozens of references of good smartphones, and it is sometimes difficult to find your way around, and especially to define which model would be the most suitable for our own needs.
Do you play a lot on your phone? Do you need power? In this case, we recommend the OnePlus 10T, the new flagship of the Chinese brand, and we explain why here.
We have also placed it without hesitation in three of our guides:
Why buy the OnePlus 10T in 2022?
The OnePlus 10T has plenty of good arguments in its favour. Let’s see the three main ones together.
For his power
This is THE big advantage of the 10T, the one no one could miss. We can not say that this smartphone lacks power. The latter indeed embeds the best of what is currently being done in terms of SoC: the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 from Qualcomm, designed to reduce heating problems. And the least we can say is that it is effective. OnePlus has also optimized everything very well, so that in game, the heating is perfectly controlled. It’s simple, it is able to quietly run all the most demanding mobile games in ultra and 60 IPS. Likewise, it will make short work of multitasking and other more demanding applications.
For its (very!) fast charging
A load at 150W is not that common. And yet it is very practical. If the OnePlus 10T has average scores in autonomy, this is largely overtaken by the speed of its recharging. In 5 minutes you recover a quarter of the battery, and in less than half an hour the phone is fully charged. A great performance that will be particularly suitable for those who use their phone intensively and do not travel without their charger.
For the changing software experience
The OnePlus 10T comes with OxygenOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12. So, in addition to a clean technical sheet, the OnePlus 10T runs with a very pleasant interface to use on a daily basis. OxygenOS turns out to be fluid and colorful. Some specific features are appreciable, such as being able to hide applications when consulting multitasking. Three years of updates are promised.
OnePlus 10T: the downsides to know
First surprising point for a smartphone of this price: it does not benefit from IP certification. So be careful with water and dust.
Then, it is necessary to approach the point which fishes (a little): the photo. Daytime shots are satisfactory for a phone at this price. But the selfies, as well as the portraits, lack a little precision, especially on the HDR… A point to take into account therefore.
