OnePlus released it’s flagship OnePlus 5 back in June 2017. The phone was supposed to be a flagship killer, but it was a hit and miss from OnePlus. Nonetheless, it was one of the best phones of 2017. As usual, OnePlus came up with the upgraded version of its flagship; OnePlus 5T was more of what we expected from OnePlus. And now the OnePlus 5T will be making its way to Nepal.
According to Oliz Store, the official distributor of OnePlus, the OnePlus 5T will be released at the end of the December. And the OnePlus 5T price in Nepal is expected to be around Rs. 60,000 – Rs. 70,000. The phone will be available in 64GB and 128 GB variant.

It carries a 6.01 inches Optic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080*2160. As always OnePlus doesn’t hold back when it comes to the RAM as it has 6GB/8GB of RAM along with 64GB/128GB of internal storage.
OnePlus 5T also features a dual camera setup, a standard 16MP lens, and another 20MP lens. The front camera is a 16MP sensor that helps for face unlock too. It consists a fingerprint sensor on the back & is powered by 3300mAh battery.

OnePlus 5T is hands down the best phone of 2017 under the budget. It costs almost the same as the OnePlus 5 but it offers far better experience. Following the bezel-less trend of 2017, the display on the OnePlus 5T looks awesome. And surprisingly the face unlock on the 5T is faster than the iPhone X’s. Not to forget it also has a fingerprint sensor on the back. Oxygen OS offers almost the same experience as the stock Android and the phone is just too fast. Though, the bigger display will drain the battery faster than on the OnePlus 5.
OnePlus 5 used a normal lens and the telephoto lens for its dual camera setup. But, the 5T now has a 16MP and 20MP Sony sensors, both of which boast an increased aperture of f/1.7 for better low-light shots and the same 27.22mm focal length. This camera setup improves its low light performance but it is nowhere near the likes of Google Pixel 2.
So, if you are looking for a high-end phone that doesn’t break your bank then OnePlus 5T is the go-to option. You can never go wrong with the OnePlus 5T. Moreover, the 5T is the most sensible flagship phone of the year 2017 when it comes to price and performance. Although, OnePlus 5T price in Nepal is yet to be confirmed.
So, what do you think of the OnePlus 5T? Will you go for an iPhone X when you can get OnePlus 5T for half the price?
