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/
