The competition is high in all niches. The top brands have at least one representative in each of them. But the customers recognize a brand due to annual flagships. That’s why the manufacturers pay the most attention to the high-end products. And though the top five is led by Apple and Samsung, there are other companies doing their best to find their place under the sun. Besides the aforementioned top companies, the smartphones market is also led by Huawei, Xiaomi, and OPPO. In this sense, we have to pay tribute to the Chinese smartphone makers that are gaining momentum nowadays. As you see, OnePlus is missing. But it doesn’t mean this manufacturer is out of the game. Recently, Time Magazine came in with an interesting article titled ‘The 5 Best Smartphones You Can Buy Right Now’. Guess what! The OnePlus 5T was the only Chinese model appeared on the list.
As you guess, the pricing doesn’t matter. That’s why the list includes such models as the iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, and Google Pixel 2/2XL. If the OnePlus 5T competes with such beasts, we can assume the influencer, such as Time Magazine has found something interesting in it.
The first thing Time Magazine wants the buyers to take a look at is the price. It notes though the OnePlus 5T costs a few hundreds of dollars less than the Samsung Galaxy S8 and roughly half the price of the iPhone X, it is quite good. What’s more interesting, the OP5T comes with an AMOLED screen that provides an outstanding viewing experience. Apart from this, the phone is packed with a dual-camera, which captures crisp and bold photos. Finally, the source mentions a couple of shortcomings. Among them, the most noteworthy is incompatibleness with Verizon or Sprint.
