    OnePlus 7T Pro vs. OnePlus 7T

     62     

    The OnePlus 7T and the OnePlus 7T Pro are the successors to the very recently launched 7 and 7 Pro. If you are wondering why these devices exist so soon after the release of the 7 and 7 Pro it's because OnePlus seems to no longer be following its self-imposed six month release cycle. It's also possible the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro may already be here before you finish reading this.

    You see, when the 7 and the 7 Pro released, there was a very clear delineation between the two. The 7 Pro had everything under the sun, from the curved 90Hz display, triple camera and higher memory options. The 7, on the other hand, was a more modest proposition with smaller ambitions. It was a very capable smartphone, just not the very best.OnePlus 7T specsAll of this begs the question, why even buy the OnePlus 7T Pro anymore when you can just get the 7T and call it a day? Well, it certainly seems that way on paper but maybe there's more to the story than what might appear at first glance. So let's break it down to the basics and see if the 7T Pro pulls ahead in a meaningful way to justify its cost, or if you should indeed just trust your instincts and go with the cheaper 7T.

    Jokes aside, the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro are iterative updates over two already very good phones. The OnePlus 7T Pro, in particular, is a much smaller update over the 7 Pro, while the 7T is a lot more noteworthy. So noteworthy, in fact, that there is now some confusion whether you should go for the 7T or the 7T Pro.OnePlus 7T specs Build: Aluminum frame, Gorilla Glass 6 Dimensions: 160.9 x 74.4 x 8.1 mm, 190g Display: 6.55-inch, 2400x1080 AMOLED, 402PPI, notched Rear wide camera: 48MP f1.6 26mm, PDAF, OIS, 4K60 video Rear ultra-wide camera: 16MP f2.2, 17mm, 4K30 video, macro mode Rear telephoto camera: 12MP f2.2, 51mm, not stabilized, 1080p30 video Front camera: 16MP f2.0, 25mm, fixed-focus, 1080p30 video Chipset: Snapdragon 855+ Memory: 8GB RAM, 128/256GB storage OS: Android 10, OxygenOS 10 Battery: 3800mAh, 30W charging Misc: In-screen fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, alert slider, haptic feedback
