Deal | OnePlus 10T with similar specs to Nothing Phone 2 drops to $264.99 for a limited time

Teaser
The OnePlus 10T launched as a better-equipped Android phone than the OnePlus 10 Pro. While it's a bit old now, with the same Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 found in the Nothing Phone 2, it can still smoothly handle almost everything you throw at it. The good part is that the smartphone is available for just $264.99 at Woot, but note that this discount will expire in 11 days.

The OnePlus 10T might be about two years old, but it was one of the most popular affordable flagships in 2022. As a matter of fact, its core specs match the Nothing Phone 2, which is the company's latest high-end phone. Now, considering that the phone is a bit old now, value-wise, its $649 starting launch price makes less sense.

But with this limited-time deal on Amazon-owned Woot, you can score the 8/128 GB configuration of the phone for just $264.99. That's a nearly $400 discount from the starting launch price, and at this price, the device offers a much better value than the Nothing Phone 2.

As for the specs, the OnePlus 10T has one of the fastest flagship SoCs from 2022, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. While it's definitely not as fast as the current flagship, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, you can still expect a smooth performance in most of the resource-intensive apps and games.

The display of the phone is up to current standards, though. OnePlus equipped the 10T with a flat AMOLED screen, which we have praised in our in-depth review. This 6.67-inch panel sports a 120 Hz refresh rate, has HDR10+ certification, and boasts native 10-bit color support.

One thing to note is that the OnePlus 10 T's display isn't a LTPO OLED panel, which the Nothing Phone 2 has. However, given how bright and color-accurate it is, you can easily overlook the lack of adaptive refresh rate support, especially at this discounted price tag.

Besides, the OnePlus 10T camera setup isn't great, but it gets the job done. What's really good about the phone is the charging speed. It can charge at 150 watts, which can offer up to 63% battery in just 10 minutes. The phone also offered great battery runtimes in our real-world tests.

While all that makes the OnePlus 10T a great purchase at the discounted price, you still need to consider a couple of drawbacks. One of them is the fact that the phone is nearly two years old. So, in terms of software support, you will be getting major Android updates till next year and security updates till 2026.

Another thing to note is that, though the phone has a decent build, it has a plastic frame. So, if you do end up scoring this deal, make sure to at least use a protective case (such as this TUDIA DualShield case that you get from Amazon for $16.99).
