Anonymous, 21 Oct 2020For people who don't like the 699€ price The midrange note 20 with handicapped soc is 10... moreThat's why I don't even look at those. Remember... OP claimed to be a "flagship killer", not just another flagship.
Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus all like to get endorsers that jack up the prices of their products. For OnePlus 8T its another Robert Downey Jr endorsed product. That's why the prices are so abnormal. I mean, am sure these endorsers are not doing it for charity? And who does these brands get to pay for these endorsers? the customers lol. Who didn't ask for these endorsements in the first place. Put out a good product, people will buy, we don't need endorsers to make the product super expensive.
OnePlus is pretty hard to find in my country the philippines, also they are overpriced/expensive. Good thing we have Xiaomi. Even their Oneplus Nord has not arrived still and its almost november.
These are the most b.s cons I've ever read about a phone in gsmarena.
This one is made for india because you can't find better device at this price. You can buy 3 OnePlus 8t's for the same price of iphone 11 or 12 pro's.
For people who don't like the 699€ price
The midrange note 20 with handicapped soc is 1000€ and it throttle to 300k and it has plastic build and midrange display for 1000€ and with one ui wich has more bloat ware and ads than miui
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2020And I'm here deciding whether to upgrade from Oneplus 5 now to an 8T or wait for the Onep... moreWhen the 9 series will come they'll start talking about 9t and 9t pro and when they will come they'll talk about 10 series. Its just a matter of requirement. I would say wait till 9 comes out because 8pro prices might go down as 8 and 8t are not even close to 8pro. And getting a 5g chipset is the only major upgrade you'll want in the coming time as Jio is working fast on it!
Yet another huuuge disappointment, oneplus is going down hard in 2020. This would have been an ok-ish phone, priced at the usual 550, but at 700 euros its just pathetic.
For such a premium price, we would ask for IP rating, Ddr5, better cameras and display etc.
It's embarrassing for them to be so greedy and try to make a fast profit in 2020 to balance all the value they had in the previous years.
Let's take the pocophone F2 for example, for nearly half the price it's a far superior device, a apart from the gimmick 120hz which is practically disabled since you can't use it on films and games...

I don't see the scree... moreI understand that iphone has the best security feature.. like you said it's all about trade offs for the display that you get... iPhone year on year comes with some new discoveries which might have been a feature in other phones since a long time....I assume that iphone will next bring 90 hz in the iphone 13 version saying it's something new or hitherto not seen in any smartphones!!!

Anonymous, 21 Oct 2020to be fair digital lossless zoom was a thing that Nokia used even before the pureview 808Older Nokia devices had regular Bayer sensors though, not Quad Bayer ones which would require sophisticated stacking algorithms to produce usable full-res images.
The US T-Mobile version does not have AOD. I repeat. No AOD for T-Mobile 8T. And they can't tell you if it's ever coming. The software feels like One UI. Just get the S20 FE. Or Pixel 5 if you want stock Android. Oxygen OS is no longer the happy medium.

2. Radio FM/IR port/DAC

I was soooo excited to get this phone. My OP5T is still not bad, but...
OnePlus is no longer true "flagship killer". I wish they kept their old scheme:
Regular phone in the beginning of the year and "T" variant by the end of the year. If it was $100 less it would be a steal here in the US. A lot of trade-offs to consider. After 9 years of Android, I am seriously considering iPhone 12 Pro, or I'll just wait for OP9 Pro.
"But here is something that few, if any, of the OnePlus competitors do - lossless 2x digital zoom. It is done exactly how we've mentioned numerous times in previous reviews it should be done - by cropping the center of the (enhanced) high-res output. In the case of the 8T, that's the 12MP center of the (multi-stacked) 48MP output from the sensor."
"The 48MP photos have the same quality as the 2x zoomed ones - they are just not cropped."
Isn't this just Honor View 20's AI Ultra Clarity 48MP mode back in 2018? Unfortunately though, detail wise the results look far worse on OnePlus 8T, probably due to poor sharpness uniformity of the lens.
Mr Parrot, 21 Oct 2020I dont think there is a reason to upgrade to 8t from 7t series as 8t lacks many things 7t hadAnd I'm here deciding whether to upgrade from Oneplus 5 now to an 8T or wait for the Oneplus 9. Most likely will try out an Android 11 ROM and if everything goes well I'll wait for 9. Especially with the potential early release (March 2021).
Android user, 21 Oct 2020You gotta be kidding...this is an 6.6 inch1080p OLED display with 120 hz refresh rate and 240h... moreYes, at this price you will have 1 or 2 trade-offs, as I mentioned. I don't see the screen as a big deal (maybe the cut-outs, but I've played with an iPhone and they're nicely incorporated in the software). 120Hz displays with HDR are just marketing gimmicks for me. I actually have a Samsung, the display is good (I wouldn't say much better than the iPhone I played with), but the phone size bothers me.
If you really care about the screen, at the same price there's the Galaxy S20FE mentioned in the review, although I have to say I am displeased with Samsung's Android customizations and their slow updates.
In the end, it's all about what trade-offs you want to make, there's no one-size-fits-all, even for the high-end phones.
