Great Device all around

Gotta say, I really like this phone. The looks and the experience is top notch. I have been using this phone for about 3.5 months now and the only bad thing I could say is that the battery does seem to drain a bit too fast; which of course is a big deal, but thankfully a 5-7 minute charge will bring the battery from 30% to 55%, but I worry about the battery's longevity.
Overall, the user experience of the phone is great, and the build is great as well... The case that comes along with it is also great and gives a good and snug feel to it.
If you need longer battery life out of this phone, you will have to change the screen refresh rate to 60 and turn off 5g, and I gotta say, while those features are great, they are very power hungry. Thankfully this phone is still a great device overall; even if you gotta sacrifice the extra cool features every now and then.
I don't live in a 5g area, but I will say that when I traveled through Nevada in the first days of having this phone, it did seem to struggle with keeping a GPS signal. I mention that because it seems 5g is causing some GPS issues... I cannot confirm that the issue has been resolved, but I have already received an update about a month ago that claimed to have solved it. And also note that T-mobiles 5g network is not yet a standalone feature. Meaning that, you'll still be connected to 4g while using 5g and it seemed to cause some issues when I got to test it out on my road trip... buut, there has been an update to supposedly...

Great hardware spoiled by poor software

Firstly, good impression count. The packaging of the McLaren edition is beautiful. It comes in the McLaren papaya orange branding. Inside you get the leaflets, a McLaren branded charger and charging cable, a SIM tray tool, a McLaren protective back cover (which is cleverly hidden away in another compartment) and the handset itself.
The handset itself is beautiful. The McLaren branding is not obvious unless you look at the back of the handset. The amalgamation of glass and metal makes the 7T Pro McLaren handset look super cool and expensive. The orange highlights are presented around the edge of the phone, the slider switch and around the camera lens assembly. There’s the USB-C port (no headphone ports here), a speaker at both ends. A rocker switch is present on the left hand side acting as the volume control and the on/off button on the right. So far so good.
The 6.67” display is spectacular (and it is factory fitted with a screen protector). Power it on and you’re greeted by an OnePlus logo followed by a McLaren logo.. The 90hz screen refresh may sound like a gimmick but once you’ve used it, you won’t go back to using the 60hz setting. Loading up YouTube videos, Netflix or your own pre-recorded content looks superb. The built-in speakers are loud and don’t distort.
The Oxygen operating system is based on Android 10 out of the box. It is sleek and quick. There’s no jarring performance bottlenecks switching from one screen to another.
The battery is rated at 4085 mah. It sounds...
