OnePlus 6T vs OnePlus 6

Should you buy the OnePlus 6T? Here’s how the newer phone compares to the company’s other 2018 phone, the OnePlus 6

Should I Buy The OnePlus 6T Or OnePlus 6?
As is the case with every new OnePlus release, you can’t buy the older phone anymore. If you want to buy a OnePlus phone direct from the company, it will have to be the 6T. 
It has a larger display and bigger battery, but if you want a headphone jack you might want to seek out a OnePlus 6 second hand online.
But the OnePlus 6T is technically the best OnePlus phone ever and its performance in the Android world is second only to that of a Pixel 3.


Price When Reviewed
  • OnePlus 6T: 6/128GB $549 | 8/128GB $579 | 8/256GB $629
  • OnePlus 6: $529 (6GB/64GB); $579 (8GB/64GB); $629 (8GB/128GB)
Buying a OnePlus phone is great – it’ll cost you less outright than most other phones with the same specs and you’ll get a clean Android experience in a well-designed piece of hardware. But OnePlus only sells one phone at a time and replaces that phone every six months.

The OnePlus 6T replaces the OnePlus 6. The newer phone looks pretty similar with an all-glass design, but there are some key differences. If you have a OnePlus 6 and want to upgrade or if you want to know how much has really changed, read on.

Read our full OnePlus 6T review.

Price And Availability
The OnePlus 6T costs £499 and is available directly from OnePlus from 6 November. In the UK it’s also available from O2, EE, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.

In the US the phone starts at $549 and you can buy directly from OnePlus or T-Mobile. You can also get it earlier on 1 November.

OnePlus no longer sells the OnePlus 6 but you may be able to find it on eBay or stock left in the UK with O2.

Design
Both phones have a similar all-glass design. The backs of both are pretty identical except for the fingerprint sensor on the 6. The 6T has an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

The OnePlus 6T has a notch but it’s smaller than on the 6. A small teardrop shape, it’s basically just there to house the single front facing camera, with the earpiece a tiny sliver in the top edge of the phone. The 6’s notch held both of these, so was bigger.

The 6T loses the headphone jack but is slightly taller and fatter than the 6, in part to accommodate a larger battery. Both phones have the same curves, alert slider and power button positioning.

You be hard pressed to tell these two phones apart if it weren’t for the different notches.
Features And Specs
When two phones look this similar, you’ll find that most of the differences are in the specs.

Here’s a handy comparison table:

Weight177g
Battery3300mAh3700mAh
As you can see, there are not a lot of differences. Both phones have the same processor, cameras and come in the same two black colours.

The 6T has dropped the 64GB storage option, offering 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, or 8GB RAM with 128 or 256GB. Storage on both phones is non-expandable.

If you’re on the lookout for a OnePlus 6, make sure you check with RAM/storage model you’re buying.

Screen sizes differ with the OnePlus 6T having a huge 6.41in display with a tall aspect ratio of 19.5:9, compared to 6.28in on the OnePlus 6. There’s also a larger 3700mAh battery in the 6T.

Neither phone has wireless charging despite both having glass backs. They also share camera components, though OnePlus claims the 6T can shoot better pictures – it’s unclear how, but our review will uncover if this is the case.

Software
Both phones run Android 9 Pie – the 6T out the box, and the 6 is receiving updates globally. OnePlus’s version of Android is pleasingly clean and not much is changed, Unlike on the Pixel 3, you can choose to use the old-style Android navigation buttons, Pie’s new gesture system or even OnePlus’ own gestures that are a tad different.

We like the simple app drawer and level of customisation you can make to a OnePlus phone – it works well whether you’re an Android newbie or a seasoned enthusiast.

Verdict
You may find that if you are looking to buy one of these phones that you have to go for the OnePlus 6T as OnePlus no longer sells the 6.

If you already have the 6 and are looking to upgrade, you probably don’t need to. The only difference is a bigger battery, slightly larger screen and an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

Otherwise you should wait for the next big change in OnePlus design that will probably come just six months after the 6T.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
