OnePlus says the 5T is the fastest phone ever

OnePlus today announced a new flagship smartphone - theOnePlus 5T. Presented with the tagline "A New View," the 5T sports a6-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, and, thanks to its thin bezels, itspredecessor - OnePlus 5 - now looks outdated.  


Refreshed design aside, the OnePlus 5T isn't much differentfrom the OnePlus 5, packing the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB, or 8 GB of RAM (depending on model). Still, OnePlus boldly claims thatthe 5T is the fastest phone ever made - thanks to a combination of the powerfulhardware mentioned above and software improvements included in OxygenOS (basedon Android 7.1 Nougat). 


Here's what OnePlus, via its official Twitter account, says:



Note that the company doesn't say "no other Androidsmartphone," but simply no other smartphone - which obviously meansOnePlus believes the 5T is faster than Apple's latest handsets - iPhone X,iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. Of course, for now, we can't say if that's true ornot. We will have to thoroughly test the new phone and see how close to thetruth OnePlus' claim is.


Stay tuned for our upcoming OnePlus 5T review, and, in themeantime, make sure to check out our OnePlus 5T hands-on from earlier today.

I know that, 5T speedtest didn't exist back then, but did you expect 5T will be slower than OP5? if OP5 can beat iPhoneX, OP5T will crush iPhone X

Don't rely on these useless tests, real life usage will always be different & no matter what, pixels are always gonna be fastest Android smartphone,it's a shame this year was a bust for pixels, iPhone is completely different platform, so I won't compare them.

With light skin I wouldn't surprised at light task. With heavier tasks it need Better processor to beat iPhones.

Define heavy & while at it, also state one thing that iPhone does heavily.

Light to medium task like navigating UI, loading apps. Heavy task like processing on web and uhm heavy stuff.. I don't know which one, tasks that use CPU full potential.

They sure like to be bold but they exaggerate and overhype a lot.

"4. Seany (Posts: 41; Member since: 28 Sep 2012) No Oreo out the box?? That's seriously bad" And yet it will still get Oreo before most Samsung phones.
