The big picture: The OnePlus 10T 5G comes with a lower-resolution display and a worse camera system than the company's flagship 10 Pro handset but makes up for it with an upgraded SoC, faster charging, and a lower price point. Some might also prefer the 10T's flat screen over the Pro's curved one.

About half a year after revealing its flagship smartphone, OnePlus is finally introducing a more affordable non-Pro version, the 10T 5G. While still a premium handset, it cuts $250 off the launch price of its Pro sibling while improving some specs (and downgrading many others).

The handset features a 6.7-inch, 1,080 x 2,412 AMOLED display with a dynamic refresh rate that switches between 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz based on content. The screen also has a 360Hz touch response rate, 10-bit color depth, and HDR10+ support.

Powering the OnePlus 10T is Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (the 10 Pro uses the non-plus version) paired with up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The company developed a new cooling solution for the 10T with the largest vapor chamber in any of its phones.

The camera department has seen the most cost-cutting measures, with OnePlus even dropping the Hasselblad branding and software features. The handset comes with a 50-megapixel IMX766 main camera with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultrawide, and a 2-megapixel macro. On the front, there's a 16-megapixel fixed-focus camera located in a hole-punch cutout.

Other noteworthy downgrades compared to the Pro version are the lack of an alert slider, missing Wi-Fi 6E support, and a relatively-paltry IP54 rating.

The OnePlus 10T has a decently-sized 4,800 mAh battery with 150W fast-charging support, with a full charge allegedly taking only 19 minutes. However, in countries with 100-127V power outlets, the charging speed is limited to 125W, making the phone charge from one to 100 percent a whole minute slower. The company claims the battery will retain about 80 percent of its capacity after 1,600 charging cycles.

The phone will ship with the company's Android 12-based OxygenOS 12.1 preinstalled, and claims it will receive three major Android updates and four years of security updates.

The OnePlus 10T 5G will be available in Moonstone Black and Jade Green, with pre-orders in the US starting September 1 and shipments beginning on September 29. Pricing starts at $649 for the 8GB / 128GB variant, while the 12GB / 256GB model will cost $749.

Oppo needs to just kill off OnePlus. Heck, everyone knows OnePlus is just a less expensive version of Oppo. The OnePlus One was nothing more than the Oppo Find7 with a few things missing.
The entire OnePlus thing was just a way for Oppo to get brand recognition outside of Asia. Produce a decent phone, cut rate price, use viral marketing. It worked. Now Oppo is known globally so to speak. They had an 8 year run, but now the phone is to the point that you'd be better of just dumping a bit more money for the Apple/Samsung phone, especially when it comes time to upgrade and you try to trade in a OnePlus phone and get hardly nothing back from it.
I had 3 of them. OnePlus One, 5T, 7T, but no more.

I would like to see how batteries hold after 2-3 years with these ultra fast charging.
Hopefully well. I expect my phones to be working perfectly after 3 years
Personally I'd much rather have a flat back, no camera hump, with a much larger battery so that fast charging isnt needed, it has plenty of capacity to last multiple days and can be (slow) charged overnight to cut down on battery wear.

When you remember you did not charge your phone and you gotta run, that fast charging helps a lot though

When you have a big enough battery that really isnt an issue, unless you forget for multiple days, and a larger battery would tolerate fast charging with less wear then a smaller battery would. More cells = less wear per cell.

I have a big battery, but I still forgot to charge it over night and it shut down. When I was about to leave for work I had to plug it in :)

Luckily I have 65W fast charging on my phone. It only took a few minutes to get up to a decent level.

I keep my s21+ in powersaver mode at all times. With the way that I use my phone, I understand that it varies greatly depending on the user and usage, I can get 3 days out of a charge. I really only charge my phone two or three times a week.

I do have a battery health app and it says my battery has gone from 4800mah to 4530mah in the ~18 months I've had it. I should be able to get atleast another year out of it. when the time comes I might just put a new screen on and replace the battery then get another 2-3 years out of it. Samsung is pretty good about longterm support

It died after exactly 2 days of normal usage (work personal calls, music + bt headphones, light reading, light web browsing). I could get more out of it if I didn't have the brightness really high so I can see well during the summer daylight and 120Hz turned on.

Wouldn't touch Chinese brands with a barge pole, if you thought other brands had privacy issues...
