PROS

  • Storage space

With 128GB internal storage space, SD cards seem to be the things of the past. Oneplus comes in variants of 64/128GB internal storage space. This fact compensates for the fact that its memory is not expandable. 128GB is more than sufficient for your selfies! Hence space is definitely not going to be the issue when you buy this phone. The massive 6GB RAM space that oneplus3T provides is totally worth its initial launch price of Rs.34,999.

  • Customized operating system

They include app permissions, Waves MaxxAudio, SwiftKey keyboard, off-screen gestures, custom icons, dark mode, manual camera mode, and RAW support for 3rd party apps, like Camera FV-5 2.75.

CONS

  • Weak customer care network

Now this is a major setback. Good customer care services are crucial for a company’s survival in the cutthroat business environment. Unfortunately, Oneplus fails at this junction. People reportedly have had to wait for several weeks to get their handsets serviced. Lately they have improved their customer care network. But it is still not up-to the standards other competitors are providing.

  • Not much different from OnePlus 3

OnePlus3 and OnePlus3T do not differ that much. Only minor differences are there to distinguish between them. If you are already an Oneplus3 owner then Oneplus3T is not going to create much difference in your life.

  • No FM!

Even though the fm culture is vanishing these days but still smart phones must provide us with at least an option.
