OnePlus 3T Q&A: Ask us anything!

The OnePlus 3T is here and we just got to review the latest low-cost flagship that's sailing under OnePlus' flags. Yes, even at $439, we'd still consider this device a low-cost one as it sells for way less than multiple top-shelf devices. Even for the pessimists out there is quite hard to shoot down the great value for money this phone boasts.

However, there's always the chance that you might want to ask us something we haven't made absolutely clear in our review. By the way, make sure to check it as well, since it covers all areas in depth.

As we usually do with the more popular and interesting devices we review, we are giving you the chance to chime in with a relevant question right in the comments section below. We will then answer these in a couple of days in a separate article. All set? Let's go then, Ask away!

Okay... Q1: How's the build quality of the OnePlus 3T compared to the OnePlus 3? Q2: How efficient and color-accurate is it's AMOLED display? Q3: Does the OnePlus 3T have the RAM management issue which plagued the OnePlus 3 at launch? Q4: What about the new SD821 SoC in the OnePlus 3T: Any noticeable performsnce difference versus the SD820 in the OnePlus 3 in real-world tests? Cheers!

As per your Oneplus 3T review, the battery scored lower than the Oneplus 3. Why is that?

I know that this phone is a CDMA+GSM device. 1st question: is this phone dual-band, that is, both CDMA 800 MHz and GSM 900/1800 MHz work at the same time? 2nd question: I think, this device is GSM unlocked, for example, if I buy this phone, I will be able to use it on Ucell, Beeline, UMS, Uzmobile’s GSM 900/1800 network in Uzbekistan. Can I use it on Perfectum’s CDMA 800 MHz in Uzbekistan easily or will I have to make it unlocked to use for Perfectum’s network? (Ucell:, Beeline:, UMS:, Uzmobile:, Perfectum:

Is there any reason to pay 800+$ for a flagship from another OEM when Oneplus charges for half the price?

Yes, features and quality. But that's something each individual will have to decide for himself.

How good is the signal quality compared to other phones using the same network?

Well I really like this phone, but it doesn't officially sell here in Iran. So I have to bring it from Canada (my only option). The problem is North American version won't support Band 3 which is used in Iran for 4G. I had the same problem for my current nexus 5 (D820), but I safely enabled band 3 via a loooong and complex patch. I want to know if there's a similar hack for A3000?

Does OnePlus 3T has same weak WiFi as its predecessor??????????

Weak? How did you come to that conclusion? I'm not facing any issue here, in fact, the WiFi is even faster than Snapdragon 650 on Redmi note 3, which has the same WiFi protocol.

I noticed too many people are facing weak signal including me. When I do speed test then it is slower than my galaxy s5 by 18MBPS


Posts: 1168; Member since: Oct 05, 2015

No, my OnePlus 3T has amazing wifi strength

Does the screen have Panel Self Refresh tech, ie. loading static images from graphics ram. for better power efficiency?

Why can't this phone score higher than the iPhone? Why is the iPhone always higher on your site?

Is this phone having the same microphone problem which the older devices from the company had? Terrible noise suppression problem while recording audio and video?? If there is then its a deal breaker for me... Why can't they provide the better audio recording like Samsung or Moto?

Oneplus 3T or Note 5? Mostly for battery life, updates, and stability. Also, Oxygen vs TouchWiz vs Stock

1: Is the single LED flash enough for snapping and shooting in dark conditions? Compare it to the quad flash of the iphone 7 plus and tell which is brighter. 2: Does the oneplus 3t also have RAM management issues as the 3, or are they absent? 3: Why does it get only a 9, when the price is also taken into consideration. Remember you gave the 7 plus a 9.3 score just like the iphone 7, even though it has a dual lens camera and an extra Gig of said it's because the $100 increase equalizes the extra features the 7 plus has....due to which same score has been given. So I guess the 3t must recieve atleast a 9.5, for it's very low price and flasgship specs! 4: Why don't you correct your battery life score of the oneplus 3t? In ur review u wrote it gets over 6 hours of SOT, but in the benchmark chart it gets less than 6 hours. 5: Which is faster in opening heavy games, the oneplus 3t or the pixel xl?

When you said "the pre-applied screen protector is a nice touch", is the Tempered Glass Screen Protector? You have to buy it with the phone to get it? Or it's a courtesy?
