DxOMark | The OnePlus 6T manages to slightly outdo the OnePlus 6
OnePlus’s entire brand is focused on the provision of great value at sub-premium price points and while the company’s phones have seen a gradual increase in MSRP over the past several releases, OnePlus phones still manage to offer excellent value, even at full price. The latest device to come out of the company's stables, the OnePlus 6T, made its way over to photography benchmarking platform DxOMark last week, and performed reasonably well.
The 6T made it out of the review with an overall score of 98, about par with devices like the Pixel 3 (101), iPhone XR (101), Samsung Galaxy S9+ (99), Mi 8 (99), and its own predecessor, the OnePlus 6 (96).
In the still photography category, the 6T earned a score of 101, about on par with the Pixel 3 (103), the OnePlus 6, and the iPhone X. In the video category, the 6T managed a score of 91, a slight increase on the OnePlus 6’s score of 87.
All considered, the OnePlus 6T did just about as well as expected, and even scoring as much as the S9+ is worthy of praise.
As usual, you’d do well to note that DxOMark’s scores are far from gospel and should, at best, be used as reference points. The company’s evaluation criteria may offer a level playing field but the final scores don’t quite tell the whole story.
