OnePlus 5T still misses out of waterproofing, wireless charging and memory expansion, but that is probably for the next time. The visual experience offered by the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is definitely better than the one of the OnePlus 5T, mainly due to the fact that this is a SuperAMOLED display. The flagship is priced at $499 for 64GB and $559 for 128GB.
Rest of the specifications are identical to OnePlus5, you still get The Snapdragon 835 processor with Adreno 540 GPU, two storage and RAM options: 6GB/64GB or 8GB/28GB respectively, DASH charging via USB Type C 2.0.

To answer this question, let's take a quick look at what the 5T has to offer with respect to the OnePlus 5. The highlight of the device is its price; 5T is incredibly cheaper. It's largely evaded questions of how this is possible, maintaining a loyal following of power users and tech enthusiasts sold on its high-performance phones with near-stock Android. We spent a very brief time with the OnePlus 5T. The sensor has been moved to the back of the phone instead of the front. The 16MP and 20MP real dual-lens camera is by far best camera in OnePlus devices with 16MP snapper.
Elsewhere, OnePlus' Intelligent Pixel Technology will see the secondary camera merge four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity, while a new Portrait Mode will make selfies less fuzzy, the company claims.
The iPhone X, on the other hand features two 12-megapixel rear cameras - one wide-angle, and another telephoto.
OnePlus's Oxygen OS overlay on Android 7.1.1 Nougat is quite clean-looking. The handset maker also announced a new Open Beta build for the OnePlus 3 and 3T phones, adding some new features and improvements to the beta Oreo firmware.
