Oneplus 7T vs Oneplus 7T Pro. What to choose?

Hello! Today’s will be dedicated to two new products – OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro.

Appearance

OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro have many differences in appearance.

OnePlus 7T is smaller and lighter than the Pro version. The weight of the device is 190 grams, the thickness is 8.1 millimeters. The smartphone case is made of glass panels. The front uses 2.5D Gorilla Glass of the 5th generation, which protects the phone from scratches. OnePlus 7T has a large and bright display with very narrow frames, an integrated fingerprint scanner, and a tear drop-shaped cutout for the front camera. The volume control key is located on the left side, and on the right are the buttons to turn on the phone and switch sound modes. Below is one of the smartphone’s speakers, a USB Type-C connector, as well as a slot for two Nano-format SIM cards.

OnePlus 7T Pro has a glass case with 3D Gorilla Glass 5 in front. This model is several millimeters longer and wider than the OnePlus 7T, as well as a greater thickness – 8.8 millimeters. The weight is 206 grams. The screen, like the OnePlus 7T, is large, with narrow frames and a fingerprint scanner, but without a tear drop-shaped cutout, since the front camera in the Pro version is retractable. As for the location of other elements on the case, it’s similar to what can be found in the regular version. On the left is the volume key, on the right is the button for switching sound modes and turning on. Below – a speaker, microphone, USB-C connector and a slot for two Nano-format SIM cards.

On the back of the OnePlus 7T is a large round main camera module with a flash that sticks out strongly over the body. The back panel received a protective 3D glass Gorilla Glass 5. As for colors, the smartphone can be purchased in matte gray and blue versions.

The OnePlus 7T Pro, unlike the regular version, does not have a round module on the back side. Here the cameras and the flash are arranged vertically one after another. Protection of the back surface is provided by 3D glass, Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphone is available in blue. Also on sale is the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition, which has a patterned rear surface with an orange border around the edges, as well as a camera module and power button.

Screen

The OnePlus 7T received a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED screen. The aspect ratio is 20 to 9, the resolution is 2400 by 1080 pixels, the maximum brightness reaches an indicator of 1000 nits. The main feature of this display was the refresh rate of 90 Hertz, at which the animation on the screen becomes smoother. If desired, in the settings you can change this characteristic to the usual 60 hertz, thereby extending the battery life of the smartphone. There is also a color calibration and color temperature adjustment.

The OnePlus 7T Pro also has a Fluid AMOLED screen, but its diagonal width is more than 6.67 inches. The aspect ratio is 19.5 to 9, and the resolution is 3120 by 1440 pixels. Otherwise, this display is similar to that used in the regular version – high brightness, wide viewing angles, refresh rate of 60 or 90 Hz and flexible color settings.

Software

Both smartphones are running Android 10 operating system with the proprietary OxygenOS 10 shell. In this shell, the lock screen has become more informative – there is a time, calendar, weather forecast, playable track, as well as notifications from applications. With Android 10, the dark mode has become available, integrated into almost all applications. Gesture management has also been changed. For the “Back” action, you need to swipe from the left or right edge to the center. Swipe from bottom to top transfers to the main screen. The application menu is now available in two versions. In standard, all applications are displayed on the screen. The second option offers search and tags, where categories are displayed on the screen, clicking on which you can find the desired game or program. The Settings app is now better organized, and related functions are grouped together. A new lighting effect has been added – Horizon, which highlights the lock display on the sides in your choice of  blue, red, gold or purple. In addition, you can customize the appearance of notification icons, change application icons, their color and font, all directly from the new design settings page.

Camera

The OnePlus 7T received a Sony IMX586 48-megapixel main camera with a 1.6 aperture, a 16-megapixel super wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 117 degrees, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with a twofold zoom. Photos have good color reproduction and dynamic range in the daytime. Pictures in low light are also very good quality. Thanks to the night mode, the camera correctly exposes the picture, and due to competent noise reduction algorithms, saves a lot of details, which results in night photos looking quite sharp. In addition, the OnePlus 7T camera application has a new Super Macro mode, which allows you to use the ultra-wide-angle module to focus at a distance of 2.5 centimeters. As for recording video on the main camera, the smartphone allows you to shoot in 4K resolution with a frequency of 60 frames per second. There’s stabilization, and there’s also a 960fps slow motion mode. The 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 front camera allows you to take high-quality selfies with blurring the background.

Like the OnePlus 7T, the camera in the Pro version of the smartphone allows you to take high-quality pictures in any light. Macro mode allows you to take photos at close range. Video recording can also be carried out in 4K resolution with a frequency of 60 frames per second. There’s also video stabilization and a 960fps slow motion mode  in the OnePlus 7T Pro.
