OnePlus 10T smartphone review: The more efficient OnePlus 10 Pro thanks to Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, accompanied by insanely fast charging

Making phones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 look old? The OnePlus 10T is considerably cheaper than the flagship smartphone from OnePlus, while offering a better processor and faster charging with an incredible 150 watts. Read this review to find out where the top-class smartphone has to make compromises and whether it is worth buying.
OnePlus 10T smartphone review

Although the OnePlus 10 never saw the light of day, the Chinese manufacturer is now bringing the T-model onto the market for the second half of the year. The OnePlus 10T deploys the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is supposed to be slightly faster and more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the OnePlus 10 Pro. Another highlight of the high-end smartphone is the inbuilt fast-charging technology: the 4,800 mAh battery can be charged with up to 150 watts via SUPERVOOC technology.

Compared to the Pro model, the camera system of the OnePlus 10T not only omits the Hasselblad branding, but also the telephoto camera, which has been replaced by a low-resolution macro camera. The basic model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage is expected to be priced at around US$ 700, while the top version is equipped with a full 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. For this, OnePlus estimates that the RRP will be around US$ 800.

OnePlus 10T in Moonstone Black
OnePlus 10T in Moonstone Black

The OnePlus 10T has a flat OLED display on the front where the edges are nice and narrow. The ratio between the screen and the front of the device is a good 87.9%. In contrast to the OnePlus 10 Pro, which uses Gorilla Glass Victus, the T model only uses Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides.

The design of the OnePlus smartphone is strongly based on that of the sister models from Oppo. The glass back of the OnePlus 10T joins seamlessly with the main base, similar to a Find X5 Pro. Thanks to a special glass hot-bending process, there are virtually no transitions between the camera module and the back that can be felt with the fingers. The latter is available in two color versions, namely Jade Green and Moonstone Black. If you want to minimize fingerprints, you should not choose the high-gloss version, but the black version with its basalt-like texture.

We like the workmanship and the feel of the upper-class smartphone. Only the plastic frame does not really fit into the image of a US$ 700 smartphone. OnePlus justifies this with a novel antenna system consisting of a total of 15 individual antennas that is supposed to improve signal performance when held in landscape mode. This antenna system, which is arranged in a ring around the case, also requires considerably more space, so that the trademark of high-end OnePlus smartphones, the Alert Slider, has been sacrificed. 

As with the OnePlus 10 Pro, the manufacturer has disposed of IP certification for its latest premium smartphone, so there is no official protection against dust, splash water or rain. Like the OnePlus 9, the 10T has the same sealing, according to OnePlus, so contact with water should (theoretically) not be a problem.

Features - OnePlus 10T with USB 2.0

The OnePlus 10T offers fast UFS 3.1 storage, which possesses a capacity of 256GB in our sample device. However, the actual available storage is significantly lower at 224GB due to the operating system and some preinstalled apps. Users who need more space for videos or photos will have to look for other alternatives because storage expansion via micoSD cards is not possible. 

Unlike the Pro model, the USB-C port of the OnePLus 10T is only of the 2.0 specification, but external peripherals such as memory sticks can be connected via USB OTG. Wireless transmission of display content to external monitors via Miracast is also possible, and video content from streaming services can be viewed in HD quality thanks to Widevine L1.

Software - OnePlus smartphone with Android 12

The OnePlus 10T ships with Android 12, which will be combined with version 12 of the in-house Oxygen OS user interface at market launch. In the review period, the security patches were from July 2022 and prior to market launch. The manufacturer promises three major Android updates and four years of security patches after the initial release.

The update schedule foresees an upgrade to OxygenOS 13 with the new Aquamorphic design for the OnePlus 10 Pro later this year. Like the OnePlus 10 Pro, the user interface is based on a unified code base called Unified OS, which merges the operating systems of the Oppo and OnePlus smartphones. A special feature of the OnePlus 10T with its 16 GB of RAM is said to be the multitasking - the manufacturer claims that over 35 apps can run simultaneously in the background.

Communication & GNSS - OnePlus phone with WiFi 6

The OnePlus 10T is supposed to have a total of 15 antennas installed to ensure first-class 5G and Wi-Fi reception. As expected for smartphones in the price range of around US$ 700, the high-end smartphone uses Wi-Fi 6, but the 6 gigahertz frequency band cannot be used for WLAN transmissions.

In addition to the current Wi-Fi standard, the OnePlus 10T also offers multi-user MIMO, which ensures high and consistent transfer rates in the home network. In combination with Asus' ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, we measured peak transmission rates of over 900 MBit/s.

The OnePlus phone supports all current mobile standards, including 5G for mobile internet access. The range of frequencies is very extensive and users are generally very well positioned. With a total of 24 supported LTE bands, nothing stands in the way of trips abroad with the OnePlus 10T.

In order to assess a smartphone's real-world localization capabilities, we record the test route with a Garmin Venu 2 for comparison purposes. The OnePlus phone determines its position with most satellite navigation systems that have at least dual-band connectivity. 

Deviations are satisfactorily low overall, so that the recorded routes are often identical between the high-end smartphone and the Garmin smartwatch. Only minor inaccuracies are revealed in the GPS data, mostly in curves or turns.

OnePlus 10T smartphone review

The OnePlus 10T offers dual-SIM functionality so that two nano-SIM cards can be inserted into the smartphone at the same time.

Voice quality is decent, and the smartphone also enables clear communication with the caller during video calls in loudspeaker mode. VoLTE is also supported.

The 16 MP front-facing camera hidden in the punch hole delivers good selfies with pleasing exposure levels and strong color reproduction. In portrait mode, the bokeh effects are spot on.  

The OnePlus 10T does not depend on Sony's IMX789 like the 10 Pro, but uses the IMX766 sensor of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G's main camera. The 50 MP lens, stabilized with OIS, impresses with good image sharpness and vivid colors in bright light. However, OnePlus still has to make improvements regarding the exposure of bright image areas. The OnePlus 10T quickly reaches its limits in darkness. Especially in terms of light sensitivity and subject illumination, the 10 Pro operates on another level.

The same applies to the ultra-wide-angle lens, although a regression in terms of photo quality between the 10 Pro and the 2021 flagship was already visible here. The lens of the OnePlus 10T produce a 199 degree field view, some artifacts, relatively few details, and pronounced blurriness in the peripheral areas. The resolution of only 8 MP is also very low. 

There are also cutbacks in video performance: an 8K option as well as UHD recording with the front cam or ultra-wide-angle camera are not available. The stabilization of the Sony IMX766 lens at 4K30 is decent and the recording quality is average. Changing lenses during recording is only possible at 1080p.

Our color analysis with the ColorChecker Passport reveals relatively high deviations compared to the actual reference colors; the blue and green tones in particular don't really match. The colors are clearly brighter under controlled lighting conditions, but weaknesses are also visible in the gray tones, which could definitely be better for this price range.

160-watt power adapter of the Oneplus 10T

The OnePlus 10T's scope of delivery includes a 160-watt power adapter, a red USB 2.0 cable (Type C to C), a SIM tool, and a quick-start guide. A protective cover is not included, but a protective film is installed ex works.

OnePlus offers a warranty of 24 months in Germany. This may differ from region to region, so be sure to check with your supplier before purchasing.

Input Devices & Operation - OnePlus 10T with 360 Hz

Those wanting to use face recognition to unlock the screen can do so via the front-facing camera. However, biometric identification with the face is not very secure due to the 2D process. The fingerprint sensor under the OLED screen should be used for reasons of security. Although this only works optically and not via ultrasonic technology, as in Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra, the sensor reacts quickly and usually recognizes the finger precisely.

The installed vibration motor provides nice haptic feedback in everyday use, but could be a little stronger for our taste. Good vibration qualities aside, operation of the smartphone is very smooth thanks to the high refresh rate of 120 Hz as well as the sampling rate of up to 360 Hz. The capacitive multi-touchscreen is even specified as having a touch-detection rate (via software) of up to 720 times per second in special applications (including games). A one-hand mode is also available, but has to be enabled in the settings first.

Display - OnePlus smartphone with OLED

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The OnePlus phone uses a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The resolution is 2412x1080, which results in a decent pixel density of about 400 PPI and a format of 20.1:9. Users can switch the refresh rate between 60 and 120 Hz. The OnePlus 10T does not have an LTPO display, like in the Pro model with adaptive control between 1 and 120 Hz. The panel offers HDR10+ certification and native support for 10-bit colors.

In terms of brightness, the AMOLED screen of the T model is on par with the flagship smartphone from OnePlus. Our measurements registered a maximum brightness of 873 cd/m² for the APL18, which is just as good at 861 cd/m² on a pure white background. However, a Xiaomi 12 or Galaxy S22 shine even brighter than the OnePlus 10T. The achieved luminance of less than 1000 cd/m² is also not optimal for HDR content.

The OnePlus 10T uses pulse width modulation (PWM) at a quite high frequency of 361 Hz for brightness control. We did not find a DC dimming mode in the settings menu, but the fluctuations in amplitude become much smaller at low brightness.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 360.8 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 360.8 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 360.8 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19681 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Series of measurements at a fixed zoom level and different brightness settings

The installed OLED display, in which individual pixels can be completely disabled, resulting in an "absolute" black, offers strong contrasts and good calibration. In our tests with the software CalMAN and a spectrophotometer, the panel of the OnePlus 10T delivers low color deviations (in the profile "natural") within the target range of <3. Furthermore, the upper-range phone offers many setting options which, in addition to different profiles, also affect individual parameters in Pro mode.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.2 ms).

The OnePlus 10T is very well equipped for everyday outdoor use. In direct sunlight and the accompanying reflections on the glass surface, content is always sufficiently legible due to the high brightness and strong contrasts (photos with protective film). 

The viewing angle stability of the AMOLED panel is also very good. Even at flat viewing angles, only a minimal loss of brightness is perceptible.

Performance - OnePlus 10T with Qualcomm SoC

In normal mode, the OnePlus 10T achieves significantly lower values
In normal mode, the OnePlus 10T achieves significantly lower values

As one of the first smartphones in Europe, the OnePlus 10T uses the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, hich not only promises up to 10 percent more CPU performance compared to the 10 Pro, but also 10 percent higher GPU clock rates.

But the savings potential is the main focus here: According to Qualcomm, power consumption drops by 15 percent compared with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and performance per watt increases up to 30 percent.

We used high-performance mode for our benchmark measurements. Similar to Huawei devices, OnePlus has been throttling the performance capabilities of the Qualcomm chipset ex-factory since the OnePlus 9 Pro. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is roughly on par with the performance of a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the single core of Geekbench 5, but the Plus version impresses with a score of almost 3000 points in the multi-core test.

The loading times of applications are pleasantly short in the OnePlus 10T, which is also due to the fast write and read rates of the UFS 3.1 storage. However, the speed of the installed storage medium lags behind the competition.

Gaming - OnePlus phone only manages 60 fps

In order to assess GPU performance in everyday use, we ran a few Android titles with the software of our GameBench tool. The manufacturer has implemented the PA Frame Stabilizer and GPU Load Control features especially for gamers, which should enable better system stability. However, only selected games support this so far, namely Genshin Impact and PUBG mobile. 

Indeed, both Android games run without major frame drops. As for PUBG Mobile, the Chinese manufacturer sets a 60-fps limit , no matter which graphics setting we choose - with the exception of UHD mode. Here, the OnePlus 10T runs stably and without notable drops at 40 fps. The limit is 30 fps in Genshin Impact.  

Even Armajet, which theoretically supports up to 144 FPS, only has a maximum of 60 fps. Even inexpensive mid-range SoCs, like the Snapdragon 695, manage over 80 fps on average in the 2D multiplayer shooter. Due to the high waste heat, the manufacturer seems to have played it safe with the OnePlus 10T because the case gets very warm during gaming.

Emissions - OnePlus 10T gets hot

Temperature

Although the OnePlus 10T has a new Cryo Velocity Vapor cooling system and a more efficient SoC in the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, we recorded a higher surface temperature (a maximum of 46.7 °C) than in the 10 Pro. Waste heat in normal mode also becomes a problem in the SoC's performance stability, because voltage- and overheating protection often kicked in during testing.

We checked for possible throttling of the chipset via a stress test of the GFX benchmark (OpenGL3.1), which repeated the respective test scenario thirty times in succession and logged the frame rates. Afterwards, the OnePlus phone was subjected to 3DMark stress tests. 

A reduction in the frame rate under high load does not occur in GFX Bench, but the case gets very warm here as well and system crashes occur. The OnePlus 10T also regularly overheats in both 3DMark test scenarios.

After around 10 tests, only the Wild Life stress test is completed in a fully cooled case without much prior use. However, a reduction in performance is hardly noticeable here as well, so OnePlus chose a fairly aggressive set-up in terms of SoC management. Either the high waste heat leads to regular system crashes or the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 does its work almost unthrottled until the end of the respective usage scenario.

Speakers

The dual speakers of the OnePlus 10T are not as loud or linear as those of the 10 Pro. Overall, the two speakers lack depth, and bass is absent. The mids and highs could also be much better for a high-end phone.

Headphones or external speakers can be connected via the USB-C port. Those who prefer Bluetooth for wireless output have access to audio codecs such as SBC, AAC, aptX, aptXHD and aptX adaptive as well as LDAC and LHDC.

Battery Life - OnePlus 10T charges quickly

Power Consumption

The battery of the OnePlus smartphone has a capacity of 4,800 mAh. The 150-watt SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition provides a capacity of 63 percent after about 10 minutes of charging, which is supposed to be enough for one day of usage, according to OnePlus. A full charge took about 19 to 20 minutes under testing, which is very good, though a Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra also recharges its two 2,250 mAh batteries in less than 23 minutes.

Despite the high power rating of the SUPERVOOC power supply, OnePlus promises a battery life of 1,600 cycles, which is significantly higher than the "standard" of about 900 to 1,000 cycles for smartphone batteries. This is reportedly ensured by 13 temperature sensors, a specially adapted smart-charging chip and 128-bit encryption. 

The power consumption of the OnePlus 10T is very good overall, even compared to a OnePlus 10 Pro. Under load, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 requires less power than its predecessor. Hence, the new Kryo-CPU seems to be significantly more efficient, as the measurements of Geekbench and GFX Bench show.

Battery Life

The OnePlus 10T delivers very good runtimes at a fixed refresh rate of 120 Hz in our two real-world battery tests, which are performed at an adjusted display brightness of 150 cd/m² and are thus very comparable. In the WLAN test, the upper-class smartphone manages over 14 hours, and an additional 13 hours in video playback with the WLAN module deactivated.

Verdict on the OnePlus 10T

Regardless of its somewhat strange product strategy this year, OnePlus delivers an interesting alternative to the OnePlus 10 Pro with the 10T. Although the T model is nominally inferior to the actual flagship of 2022, it houses the more efficient SoC and thus longer runtimes as well as faster charging technology and a slightly brighter display. On the other hand, the OnePlus 10T also has some drawbacks, such as the mediocre dual speakers, the comparatively weak cameras, and the lack of premium features.

Those who do not want to do without features such as an IP rating, USB 3.1 or Qi support should take a closer look at the Galaxy S22. Thanks to its update policy, the Galaxy-S22 lineup also provides a strong argument against the BBK smartphone. Another alternative with a long software support and a much stronger camera package is Google's Pixel 6 Pro.

The OnePlus 10T is a good smartphone, but it focuses too much on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 as a selling point.

Price and Availability

Although the OnePlus 10T was formally introduced on August 3 at a launch event in New York, pre-orders of the smartphone in North America will not be available until September 1, and open sales are expected to follow almost a month later on September 29. Interestingly, the 10T’s pre-order delay does not apply to potential buyers in the UK, where it has already been available for pre-order (from £629.00) since August 3 via OnePlus' website

Regarding global availability, OnePlus has not given any clear reasons for its haphazard release schedule and why the model is launching in some markets sooner than others. Interested buyers are thus advised to check regularly for availability via Amazon (or any other suitable supplier) or OnePlus' official website.
