You can now pre-order the OnePlus 3T with 128GB of storage for $479
If you're in the market for one of the best phones that costs less than $500, few handsets will offer you as good of an experience as what you'll get with the OnePlus 3T. Although the company recently went under some fire for juking the stats on performance benchmark tests for the phone, the 3T itself is still a very commendable product. Up until this point, you've only had the option of purchasing the phone with 64GB of onboard storage. That's a good chunk of space for storing all of your apps, games, photos, and more, but if you're someone that still hasn't jumped on the cloud bandwagon, that 64GB may not sound like quite enough for you.

Lucky for you, local storage hog, OnePlus has just opened up pre-orders on the 128GB variant of the 3T. The 128GB model is only available in the Gunmetal color option and not the fancy Soft Gold duds that just went on sale a couple of days ago, but even with this being the case, it's still great to finally have the option made available. The OnePlus website currently shows that the 128GB variant of the 3T will ship within 11 days of purchasing it, and while that's definitely a lot longer than the immediate shipping that is being offered for the 64GB flavor, our guess is that the higher storage option will get that same treatment as time goes on.

In addition to the massive amount of local space for keeping all of your content, the OnePlus 3T also offers the Snadragon 821 processor, 6GB of RAM, 3,400 mAh battery with Dash Charge support, 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED display, and lot more. The 128GB 3T will set you back $479, making it just $40 more than the 64GB model. Not everyone will need that much space, but if you think you're someone who will, a $40 premium is very reasonable.

No tnx, for same money i can get S7, which supports SD cards, and have better camera, plus it is water resistant. It is good offer from One+, it's just wrong all last year's flagships cost similar.

You are right. It was priced right like 6 months before but not anymore.

Still does more than the 3T. S7 comes with 25Gb sdcard free. The s7 is a better to some. Just because you dont see it that way, doesnt make him wrong. What is that extra 2GB doing on the 3T? Nothing! Its just taking up space.

I just bought the 3T 128GB... LG G6 is only getting the SD821 instead of the 835... The Galaxy S8 is only going to have curved edges... which I can't stand. At half the price of these unreleased phones, I'm finally upgrading my Samsung Note 3. I will still be waiting for SD slot, waterproofing, wireless charging, and front facing speakers.

You can get the le max 2 with 128GB for $269. It's a lot cheaper than the 3t.

With the powerhouse zte axon 7, whod get this pos 3t. This crap is not selling so every other day omeplus asks pa to write some nonsense like new gold color and available for immediate shipping or some 5 buck reduction. Im dying to see their financial report for 2016 This is the 3rd year flagship phone are with qhd and u can buy an EXCELLENT qhd phone for cheap. And once u use a qhd, u immediately notice fhd wont go back

I sold my OP3 to get the OP3T and when I got it it was defective. Had to send it back and since they had no stock to replace it I just went back to my S7 Edge on Nougat. The S7 on Nougat is a much better phone with many more features and all (mostly) the bloatware is disabled so not an issue. In hindsight I should have kept the OP3 instead of upgrading to the OP3T.

My old S7 Edge is still in hands of my dad (no nougat yet, though). And it's most definitely an awesome phone, I prefer the OP3. Mostly because of the dual-sim and awesome custom rom support. When I look at Android features, there isn't a single feature I miss from the S7E. I do miss hardware features (like the better screen and waterproofing)

Why is 6GB RAM needed. Coding? Video editing? Is it capable of playing GTAV? It's senseless.
