The OnePlus 6T has only been on the market for a short time. The release of the smartphone was accompanied by a considerable media hype – the opinions on the device were consistently positive. We have taken the extensive reporting as an opportunity to take the highly praised device into our own hands and subject it to a practical test. The following report reveals whether it can live up to the high expectations raised by the reporting.
Design and Workmanship
The manufacturer has opted for an elegant design for the new model. The smartphone is only available in two black versions. Both underline the claim of having chosen a comparatively timeless design. Unlike many other smartphones, the OnePlus 6T is thus largely immune to the latest fashion – albeit not completely, as Notch reveals, for example.
In the matt black version, which bears the name “Midnight Black”, a wonderful reflection effect is created. All in all, the device is very noble and of high quality due to the colouring and the surface design. Also in the mirror-black version, called “Mirror Black”, the device knows how to convince optically. In addition, the device is now also available in the colour variants “Speed Orange” and “Thunder Purple”.
It is also worth mentioning that the device has a glass housing. The choice of material may not be practical, but it definitely benefits the design. However, the phone is excellently finished – all edges are smooth, all transitions look flawless and the device lies very well in the hand. The choice of the best materials can literally be felt.
In summary, it can be said that the tested device is completely convincing both optically and in terms of design. The first impression also arouses curiosity – what such a noble looking device can offer in practice?
