OnePlus likes to be disruptive, both in terms of the products it makes, and the way it sells them. In a price conscious market like India, it’s no surprise the company has managed to make a name for itself rather quickly. Each flagship over the years has consistently offered top-of-the-line components at nearly half the price of the competition, which is what has earned OnePlus its fame.
The OnePlus 2 (Review) didn’t quite have that ‘wow’ factor, to be honest, but the company seemed to have gotten its act together with the OnePlus 3 . We loved the phone when we reviewed it and has been our go-to recommendation when anyone asks what’s good under Rs. 30,000, till now. It was surprising that OnePlus decided to do a mid-cycle refresh of OnePlus 3, which is just five months old. While this was met with cheer from those who were still on the fence, it came as a low blow to all those who had already bought the now-outdated model.
The OnePlus 3T is now on sale at Amazon starting at Rs. 29,999. The differences between the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 aren’t massive on paper and we felt the same the first time we got hold of one. We already know OnePlus 3T is good, but is it worth the premium over its predecessor? We find out.
