For then OnePlus is also a brand for which many people are eagerly waiting for it’s launch. 

Nearly 2 Lakh people are watching the live stream on YouTube on the other side in previous Apple even there were only 50 K people watching.

Its clearly shows that OnePlus got its ball in the right side. The launch event went good and many new things we got to know from the launch event. 

Here in this article, I will mention the ONLY difference between OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T by which you can decide yourself to go for it or not. 

Let’s get on with the first difference that is…

1) Size of OnePlus 6 and 6T

Now-a-days people are just going mad on bigger phones with larger display’s. 

So is there any improvement in size of OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T. ?

What is improvement of size meanr of ? Bulky phone ? hehe… Don’t worry…Just little more grams than OnePlus 6 which doesn’t make a difference. In practical OnePlus 6 weighs about 177 gms and OnePlus 6T weighs about 185 gms. Just a little bit ! 

Unfortunately , you’re gonna disapoint by this. Phone got lots of features and it just became fat. Yeah!  Thickness is the scene where you can notice a slightest difference even. 

OnePlus 6 has the thickness of 7.8 mm but coming to OnePlus 6T it increases to 8.2 mm which is pretty noticable

But trust me while you hold this in your hand it feels very comfy compared to OnePlus 6. 

2) Display of OnePlus 6T compared to OnePlus 6

Let’s get back to OnePlus 6 once to get to know, what was the display upto…

OnePlus 6 comes with 6.2in 2280×1080 Full Optic AMOLED 19:9 display and the screen to screen to ratio is just 83.8 %.

So what’s special in OnePlus 6T ? 

Something must be there… Guessed it ? No ? Yes ?  Anyways I am going to say here… Just don’t give much stress to your CPU… hehe… 

The change in its screen to screen ratio which has increased by 2% and it is now 86%. Which makes phone looks so premium. 

Something special with Notch as well…

This time there is no need of guessing… So this time you will get Waterdroplet notch, actually the shape is in that form it’s not an official name.

Tear drop notch

This notch looks so cute and I am in love it… I personally feel OnePlus can easily compete with iPhone’s. 

Let’s have a look what are the techs installed in the notch itself. 

  1. Proximity Sensor 
  2. Front camera 
  3. Ambient Light

There’s a little problem with the earpiece which is place at very top of the phone which may not be comfortable. It doesn’t seems to be so distribuing but it feels at the start later it doesn’t effect you. 

In Display-finger print sensor 

You may see this feature in Vivo, but now finally it is integrated into OnePlus 6T.

It looks premium and those who are habiated with the speedness of physical fingerprint sensor then this In display finger porint can be slower to you.

Instead Face-unlock works so well compared to in display finger print. 

However OnePlus offers sRGB and DCI-P3 color modes on the OnePlus 6T. You can select either one according to your prference. 

Screen protection of OnePlus 6 VS OnePlus 6T

OnePlus 6 is protected with Gorrilla Glass 5 whereas OnePlus 6T is protected with Gorrila Glass 6. There is no much difference just only the number. 

3) Performance of OnePlus 6 VS OnePlus 6T

There’s no much difference in terms of performance but even though let’s recall them. 

OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 both use a Snapdragon 845 chipset and come with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, so there’s no difference there.

1+   6 comes with three variants 64 GB, 128 GB. 256 GB, on the other hand, OnePlus 6T doesn’t offer 64 GB.

6T will ship with the Android Pie and along with that OnePlus 6 also will get the upgrade of Android Pie.

4) What is Smart Boost In OnePlus 6T ?

In our phone generally we use Booster Apps to clear memory which can make our phone faster a little bit. 

As same OnePlus comes with smart boost by this your phone stores data of frequently used apps. By this you can your phone works faster. However with the high end snapdragaon chipset you won’t notice much difference but ya… 

5) Is there any difference in camera aspect ?

The camera can be a catchy aspect in any smartphone and if made any improvements then OnePlus 6T would have reach tremendous hipe in the market. But unfortunately, there’s no much difference in camera so there’s not much hype in the market. 

When it’s come to specification of OnePlus 6 , let me remind you… 

OnePlus 6 camera is equpped with 16MP + 20MP configuration on the back with an f/1.7 aperture and OIS + EIS

The front also sees the same 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. Is there any improvment ? No right ! OnePlus 6 users are so happy and can stick to the same for next 6 Months. 

You may heard of some Nightmode , Nightscape… Whatever you may call… It’s not much a point to talk about because it the photo quality increases a little bit in Night that too because of HDR algorithms. It’s nothing related to hardware. Thumbs down !!

6) Removing 3.5 mm jack 

What’s wrong with these companies… Jack had commited a serious crime , Think so… They are in Love with these tiny little dongles which connect to port and to the dongle you need to insert your wired headphones. 

On other side Apple is totally against it , they don’t even provide dongle. hehe…

Funniest part , reply from OnePlus team regarding removal of headphone jack was there is no much space available so that we need to remove the headphone jack. 

7) Battery performance of OnePlus 6T

Here is the right upgrade which makes real difference. OnePlus 6 comes with 3300 mAH battery wheras OnePlus 6T equped with 3700 mAH. 

This can be considered the best upgrade and may be due to this headphone jack been removed. RIP.

No need of much explanation… No means No… No discussions hehe… But ya… seriously I recommend you for next upgrqade till then enjoy OnePlus 6. People who are ready to buy their first flagship smartphone then OnePlus 6T is for you.
