Root OnePlus 8T
OnePlus 8T

OnePlus 8T has a gorgeous design. This device is premium mid-range device with flagship level specs. The phone’s back and front are made from Gorilla glass 5. It is very comfortable in hands because of matte aluminum frame.

Display of this device is not curved, a bad news for people who love curved display. Unlike the oneplus 8 pro, the 8T doesn’t have official waterproofing.

The oneplus 8t’s display is a 6.55 inch amoled with a 1080p resolution. You also get a super fast 120hz refresh rate and 240hz touch sampling rate.

You get a set of stereo speakers with a bottom firing unit and the earpiece acting as the second one. There’s no 3.5 millimeter jack.

Battery life of this device is pretty great. It has 4500mah battery. I love the warp charge technology of OnePlus. It comes with a huge 65 watt adapter.
