Like always OnePlus 5T is another flagship killer smartphone from OnePlus which not only looks good on paper but it actually fills the gap as well as correctly fits into the gap between mid-range smartphones and high-end flagship devices.

OnePlus 5T comes in two memory variants and talking about its strength there is Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa-Core CPU, Dual Rear Cameras, AMOLED display, Narrow bezel design, fast / Dash charging and few others as well.

Now coming to its drawbacks, OnePlus 5T is not IP68 certified, which means unlike most of the other flagship phones, it is not water and dust resistant which is one of the biggest downsides. Secondly, in terms of memory, you can either go with 64GB or 128GB storage variant and that’s it, as there is no microSD card slot on this handset.

  1. Hi admin,

    • Hi Arjun,

      As per the official information from the company OnePlus 5T is not IP68 certified devices which means it is not water and dust resistant. Yes, you are right there are some YouTubers who have done a water test on this phone and OnePlus 5T has survived those tests, but please remember if the phone stops functioning due to water residue, it will not be covered in the warranty. Hope so that helps.
