$500 OnePlus 5T is an Android smartphone bargain

Spread the love



Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has been making waves lately with a slate of Android phones that are both capable and affordable. Now, the company has stepped up their game with the OnePlus 5T, a six-inch slab of color with some surprising features. First up is the six-inch AMOLED screen which sports minimal bezels, so while the screen is bigger, the phone itself is only a smidge larger than the regular “5” model.

The 5T also has another feature that’s been in the news lately: it will unlock using facial identification. The OnePlus system isn’t nearly as complicated as Apple’s Face ID – it’s mostly for convenience – and the 5T also includes a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone as the primary security measure. But it does seem to signal a bit of a trend towards using your mug as the key to unlocking your phone.

Anyway, the OnePlus 5T does pack a bunch of top-tier tech into a $500 phone. Get all the details in our hands-on review: https://www.digitaltrends.com/cell-phone-reviews/oneplus-5t-review/

    The slaughterbots video was very impressive. I am very curious what the future will hold. One thing though xD before those little robots can be really dangerous they first need to fight the wind, and also they lack battery. However lets all hope they are going to put some rules on AI. And I am not talking about the 3 laws of robotics…
