The 7T also has the familiar OnePlus complaints: it doesn’t support wireless charging (which might not matter to you, but it matters to me); it doesn’t have an official IP rating for water and dust resistance; and you can’t expand the storage with a microSD card. It also tends to aggressively shut down apps when I’m not using them, which is something the company says will be changing. I mostly notice this when I’m using Android Messages on my computer, and I can’t send or receive messages until I wake the 7T. Also, while this phone is definitely smaller than a 7 Pro and is slightly easier to hold, it still might be too big for some people.
But I can forgive and forget a lot of those things when I consider the fact that I’m getting this great screen and this fast performance for $600. We are expecting Google to put a similar 90Hz display in the upcoming Pixel 4, but I guarantee that won’t be available for anywhere near the price of the 7T. You can’t even get a 90Hz screen on any phone from Samsung, Apple, LG, Huawei, or others, outside of niche gaming phones.
In fact, when I compare the 7T to any other phone right now, even the 7 Pro, I’m not sure anything can touch this combination of display, performance, and price.
Correction, 2:45PM ET, September 26th, 2019: An earlier version of this article said the name of the new charging system used by the OnePlus 7T was Warp Charge 30 Plus. It is in fact Warp Charge 30T, but honestly, who cares. We regret the error.
