OnePlus 8T detailed evaluation: 3399 yuan (USD $486) really fragrant screen super flagship

There are many factors for the overall experience of a mobile phone, but a good screen is always decisive. Because the moment the mobile phone is picked up, the interaction between humans and intelligent systems first starts with the exchange of visual information, so this has also become the focus of competition among major mobile phone brands. Among them, OnePlus has shown great sincerity in the design of screens in recent years. Following the popularization of the concept of high refresh rate, it has brought users a brand new perception of professional color accuracy. Of course, OnePlus has not kept its technology at the flagship level. This time, it has launched a 120Hz direct screen design. JNCD has an average of 0.3 OnePlus 8T. I believe that more friends can experience the uniqueness of a good screen, and more importantly, this The price of a mobile phone starts at 3399 yuan (USD $486) .

OnePlus 8T is one of the high-performance products of OnePlus in the second half of this year. We see that the screen is one of the highlights of this mobile phone. The screen of OnePlus has always led the industry. In addition to the high refresh rate, OnePlus 8T is also currently rare A mobile phone that can obtain Displaymate A+ certification, and the addition of a 2.5D flexible straight screen allows OnePlus 8T to have a better display effect.

First, let’s take a look at the hardware parameters of OnePlus 8T. You can see that OnePlus 8T uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, providing up to 12GB+256GB memory combination, using LPDDR4X memory and UFS3.1 flash memory, which brings lower power consumption. It also has a faster speed. Of course, based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform, OnePlus 8T can support WiFi 6 high-speed network, support dual-mode 5G, and support dual card dual standby.

The screen is the focus of OnePlus 8T. OnePlus 8T uses a 6.55-inch 2.5D flexible straight screen customized by Samsung. The screen supports 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling frequency, provides 1080P level HD resolution, and the maximum screen brightness can reach 1100nit , The screen has passed the DisplayMate A+ rating, HDR10/HDR10+ standard, has the industry’s top color accuracy, and supports 8192 brightness adjustment. This also allows OnePlus 8T to have a more refined texture, and the narrower screen frame allows mobile phones to maintain a higher screen-to-body ratio.

OnePlus 8T offers two color options, silver hour and cyan. The cyan version adopts a brand-new process, which presents the high-quality texture of ceramic glaze and is not easy to stain fingerprints. The key OnePlus 8T has a body weight of only 188g and a body thickness of only 8.4mm. It is also very rare to be able to achieve this body thickness and weight when the phone has a built-in 4500mAh battery.

Display effect test, high color accuracy is justice

The screen can be said to be the biggest highlight on the OnePlus 8T. The OnePlus 8T screen is customized by Samsung. The 2.5D flexible straight screen can effectively reduce the thickness of the screen and bring better fit. Effectively increase the screen-to-body ratio. Another point is that the current flexible screens are all high-end screen products, and the display effect will be better than the general straight screen. Moreover, the OnePlus 8T screen supports 120Hz high refresh frequency and 240Hz frequency, which is one of the fluid AMOLED screens with the highest specifications in the industry.

The OnePlus 8T screen is also the first 120Hz direct screen to be evaluated by Display Mate A+. We see that only OnePlus 8 series, Samsung S20 Ultra and OPPO Find X2 have obtained DisplayMate A+ certification in 2020. It can be seen that DisplayMate has a screen rating The assessment is quite strict. Each screen of OnePlus 8T has been professionally calibrated at the factory, and the average JNCD is approximately equal to 0.3, reaching the top level in the industry.

OnePlus 8 series screens have achieved 4096-level automatic brightness adjustment. OnePlus 8T has increased the automatic brightness adjustment of the screen from 4096 to 8192, which makes the brightness adjustment of the screen more smooth and natural.

We tested the OnePlus 8T screen with professional testing equipment. The OnePlus 8T screen color gamut can reach 99% DCI-P3 color gamut. From the theoretical data, it can be seen that the OnePlus 8T screen has a wider color gamut. For better color performance.

JNCD is a standard for measuring the accuracy of screen colors. The smaller the value, the more accurate the color display. JNCD can distinguish the smallest unit of color change with the naked eye. One unit is called 1JNCD. JNCD average 0.3 means that the average value of the distance between the "measured color" and "accurate color" of the OnePlus 8T screen is only 0.3, which is far lower than the current industry standard that is JNCD<2. We conducted a ΔE test for OnePlus 8T. The minimum value of ΔE is only 1.38 and the average value is 2.75. This data shows that the human eye on the OnePlus 8T screen basically cannot distinguish the difference in color, and the color accuracy is very high.

In terms of actual display effect, the screen performance of OnePlus 8T is also quite good. First of all, the screen has high color saturation and rich color performance. At the same time, it is very eye-catching. At the same time, such high saturation does not make people feel dazzling. Secondly, the details of the screen display are also quite good. The screen based on the wide color gamut brings better color display effect and the screen looks more comfortable.

The OnePlus 8T screen supports 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling frequency, 120 frames per second, twice the traditional 60Hz screen, bringing a smoother visual experience. At the same time, the screen supports a touch sampling rate of up to 240Hz, making sliding operations and touch operations in game scenes smoother, bringing a more user-friendly experience.

Macro camera with four cameras, richer image gameplay

OnePlus 8T uses a rear four-camera solution, a 48-megapixel high-definition main camera plus a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5-megapixel macro camera with a 2-megapixel unique black and white lens that supports optical protection. Shake and electronic anti-shake, with video portrait, video night scene and other photography functions.

IMX586 main camera

OnePlus 8T uses a rear four-camera solution, a 48-megapixel high-definition main camera plus a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5-megapixel macro camera with a 2-megapixel unique black and white lens that supports optical protection. Shake and electronic anti-shake, with video portrait, video night scene and other photography functions.

OnePlus 8T main camera uses IMX586 sensor, which is a relatively mature sensor. This sensor has a 1/2-inch outsole, supports four-in-one pixels for greater light input, and supports optical image stabilization.

IMX586 is indeed a relatively mature CMOS. With OnePlus's tuning of this CMOS, you can see that the shooting effect is very good. With the processing of AI scene recognition, the 8T main camera can bring very rich color performance. , And the detail performance is also satisfactory. In the case of backlighting, the HDR algorithm allows the picture details to be preserved, and the overall color style maintains a high saturation. The photos are very eye-catching.

OnePlus 8T uses a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, which is also the widest wide-angle lens in OnePlus's history. This wide-angle lens combines high-definition image quality and wide-field vision to bring better photo performance.

The 123° ultra-wide-angle lens allows OnePlus 8T to easily shoot large landscapes. The 16-megapixel lens brings good detail performance. The stretch of the wide-angle lens brings better composition and gives the picture a more sense of depth. The picture is even more shocking.

Using the OnePlus 8T macro camera can take some microscopic photos to capture the details of plants or small animals. At the same time, you can also take some different scenes through the macro lens to bring special shooting effects.

OnePlus 8T uses the IMX586 sensor. Because the sensor has a larger area, it brings a greater amount of light. The night scene mode is used for shooting, which brings better shooting effects. With the support of the night scene algorithm, the OnePlus 8T night scene can be effective Control the noise, bring a cleaner picture, and at the same time control the light properly, so that the night scene shooting effect is improved.

Game experience: performance and visual effects double harvest

Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, UFS 3.1 flash memory and other high-specification hardware, with a 120Hz direct screen certified by DisplayMate A+. I believe that many friends, like me, will immediately think that OnePlus 8T is a mobile game weapon, even though this is not a gaming phone.

Although everyone's eyes have different perceptions of color, the smaller the JNCD value, the better the color accuracy is an objective parameter, and this is also well reflected in the game experience. Adopted with friends, OnePlus 8T can feel the advantages of screen color in the default state. To describe it in one sentence, it is thick but not gorgeous, sharp but not dazzling, and it looks really comfortable.

In the new version of the system, OnePlus 8T also adds game console settings. During the game, it is convenient to chat on WeChat and QQ, and record screen quickly. I personally feel that frame rate switching, performance mode, and one-click screenshots can also be added here.

The actual game fluency is also good, and the straight screen design reduces accidental touches. But because I got a test prototype, the OnePlus 8T on my hand has not yet adapted to the high frame rate. So here, through code cracking, two gears of 90Hz and 120Hz are run respectively. Judging from the frame rate curve recorded by sex-nenggou, there is no pressure to eat chicken at the high frame rate of OnePlus 8T, and the game process is quite smooth.

Continue to try the recently popular "Original God". Although this new game does not yet have a high frame rate mode, the hardware requirements for refreshing at 60Hz and the highest picture quality are quite high. In this setting, mobile phones that are not equipped with Snapdragon 865 can only be played with middle and lower picture quality. During the game of "Original God", the frame rate of OnePlus 8T also fluctuates more obviously than when eating chicken, but it mainly appears in the transition, and it is generally smooth.

The fluency has gone up, what about the fever? The size of the OnePlus 8T is quite compact this time. What is surprising is that the heat control is still in place. After all, the VC soaking plate has increased in the limited internal space. Like the less demanding "King of Honor", when the brightness is 100%% and the room temperature is 25°C, the maximum temperature of the body is only 38.5 degrees when connected to WIFI6 for gaming. When playing 120Hz Chicken Eater and the highest quality "Original God", the fever will be slightly higher, but it will not be very hot.

In the same state, we also tested a battery life plus 8T. Under the highest performance and maximum brightness output, OnePlus 8T 4500mAh battery can be considered to withstand the pressure. In fact, in daily use, 100% brightness is generally not used, so playing mobile games with OnePlus 8T can basically be fun.

After all, OnePlus 8T also has 65W fast charge. It can be charged from 1% to 71% in 20 minutes, and it only takes 35 minutes to charge to 100%.

What's interesting is that the standard charging head of OnePlus 8T uses a CtoC design. In addition to supporting 65W Warp flash charging, it is also compatible with PD and PPS charging up to 45W. The OnePlus 8T itself also supports up to 27W PD input. In terms of charging speed and compatibility, OnePlus 8T provides a very good configuration.

In general, OnePlus 8T has done enough in the game experience, and it belongs to the current first echelon in terms of fluency, heat, and battery life.

Test summary:

OnePlus 8T continues the highlights of OnePlus in terms of screen, hand feel, fast charging, etc., and brings a 2.5D flexible straight screen, which has also been evaluated by DisplayMate A+. In the actual experience, the OnePlus 8T screen confirms that it brings very good visual effects. First, the high refresh rate of 120Hz and the highest sampling frequency of 240Hz make the display of the phone smoother, and the operation of the game is also more user-friendly. .
