OnePlus says 5T is its fastest selling phone ever, handset now ships in up to 2 weeks

Not long after launching the 5T - its newest flagshipsmartphone - OnePlus announced that this became its "fastest sellingdevice" to date. Earlier this year, OnePlus said the same thing about theOnePlus 5, which means the 5T is more successful than its predecessor.


According to OnePlus, it took only 6 hours to realize thatthe 5T broke its sales records. Unfortunately, the company did not share exactnumbers, so we don't know just how many OnePlus 5T units have been sold in those 6hours. In any case, right now, the new phone is a bit hard to get, at least inthe US.If you want to order the $499 version of the handset (with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB ofstorage space), this can ship within 14 days. The $559 model (8 GB RAM + 128 GBof storage space) can ship faster, but it may still take up to 10 days beforeit reaches customers.


Regardless of what OnePlus 5T model you're getting, youwon't be able to use it on Verizon and Sprint, though all other relevant US carriers aresupported. If you're thinking of buying this phone, but you're not fullyconvinced it's the right choice, perhaps our OnePlus 5T review will help youmake up your mind.

Ordered from o2 here in the UK and picked up the phone before it was available from OnePlus. I don't normally do this but I'm glad I did. Software for the camera needs work but otherwise I have no complaints.

Why don't people want to believe the 5T is selling like (for OnePlus) hotcakes? It's a great looking device that came out at the right time.

I don't believe, because most of comment about this phone are not that great(except for played reviewers) it costs like Samsung S8(which is better device) and on top of that op3 was great success for OP, that they will hardly outdone, after all problems that they had with false promising, spying software, bad support

i kinda agree with you. op3 was selling like crazy in my country even before it was officially on sale (early buyers got themselves imported units from China and UK).

A lot of people like myself have used student discount and various coupons that bring the price down some more. I can believe this

I can't believe so many people buying this phone to support the chinese nsa network.

It's great device, but it's hard choice between this or discounted S8+.

Now they managed 90% of OP phone series problems, just that camera, which for me is a deal breaker.
