Within the first half of the yr, it was the OnePlus 10 Professional that acquired 4 stars in our evaluation. Now we have simply reviewed the OnePlus 10T 5G with the identical consequence. That is purpose sufficient to check each fashions right here and to work out the variations. Let’s begin with the technical specs:

If we take a look at the specs, the 2 panels do appear to be nearly equivalent: 6.7-inch “Fluid AMOLED” panels, each armed with a 120 hertz refresh fee. Nonetheless, there are a number of variations between the OnePlus 10 Professional and the 10T: The previous comes with LPTO 2.0 expertise and a better decision. As well as, the ten Professional has rounded sides, which we don’t see within the OnePlus 10T.
Visually, OnePlus has stayed true to itself and continues the design language we already noticed on the OnePlus 10 Professional. The digicam array is organized a bit in a different way, however this distinction isn’t price mentioning if we disregard the lacking “Hasselblad” lettering. Extra noticeable is the omission of the alert slider, which was not effectively acquired by many OnePlus followers.
Aside from that, the 2 fashions share the lacking IP certification, the lacking slot for a reminiscence card, and the lacking 3.5 mm jack. A barely weaker show, lack of an alert slider—these components mix to ship some extent for the OnePlus 10 Professional.
Nonetheless, the OnePlus 10T desires to make up for its shortfall within the efficiency class. The Chinese language producer has put in the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which delivers much more efficiency than the predecessor Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The much more environment friendly cooling system and the upgraded working reminiscence additionally underline that OnePlus is severe concerning the efficiency of the brand new mannequin. The mannequin with 128 GB (non-expandable) storage nonetheless has 8 GB of RAM.
In contrast to the OnePlus 10 Professional, which launched with 12 GB of RAM within the 256 GB model, OnePlus now presents 16 GB of working reminiscence on the 10T. By way of connectivity, the 10T can also be forward with Bluetooth 5.3 vs Bluetooth 5.2. The underside line is that this: we’re coping with two very highly effective units, of which the OnePlus 10T is the stronger one on this division.
It appears like the benefits see-saw part to part right here, as OnePlus has slimmed down the digicam fairly a bit within the 10T. This doesn’t apply to the first digicam as OnePlus makes use of Sony’s IMX766 sensor with 50 MP within the 10T. The outcomes are often not less than nearly as good as these within the 10 Professional. However the remainder falls fairly quick in comparison with the OnePlus 10 Professional.
This begins with the lacking Hasselblad help on the 10T and continues with halving the selfie digicam’s decision to 16 MP, and at last ends with the lacking telephoto lens. Sadly, OnePlus changed it with a functionally ineffective 2 MP macro sensor on the 10T. I merely assumed that OnePlus might additionally put a sticker of a sensor rather than this macro cam and no one would miss something.
Nonetheless, actually good footage could be taken with each the first digicam and the ultra-wide-angle digicam, and the night time mode is on par with the OnePlus 10 Professional. If we are able to actually say that the OnePlus 10T has a weak spot, then it’s more than likely to be discovered right here within the triple digicam.
We wouldn’t have to spend a lot time right here, as a result of the 2 rivals are completely on par when it comes to software program. OxygenOS 12.1 which relies on Android 12 is utilized in every case. Even higher: As quickly as OxygenOS is prepared with Android 13, the OnePlus 10 Professional and the OnePlus 10T will obtain the replace later this yr.
We wouldn’t have to say a lot about OnePlus’ Android replace coverage both, because the producer presents three main Android variations and 4 years of Android safety updates. On this respect, OnePlus is sort of exemplary and simply behind Samsung.
The fixed ups and downs additionally proceed with the battery. On the one hand, the 10T costs extremely quick at as much as 160 watts. The 4,800 mAh battery is charged to 100% in simply 19 minutes. In distinction, the marginally 10 Professional’s bigger 5,000 mAh battery lags behind a bit with its “solely” 80 watts of charging pace. And sure, that’s nitpicking on a really excessive stage.
The place the complaining pays off, however, is that OnePlus has put its pedal to the metallic in terms of wi-fi charging. Whereas the ten Professional may also be charged wirelessly with 50 watts and even handles wi-fi reverse charging, we don’t discover both of those on the OnePlus 10T. Too unhealthy for the latter!
Each fashions can be found in two variants: with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and with 12 or 16 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. The ten Professional was launched for $899, with the 256 GB machine priced at $999. The worth distinction of the 2 OnePlus 10T fashions is also $100. Nonetheless, the enjoyable begins at $649, whereas the bigger capability mannequin will value you $749.
The worth of the OnePlus 10 Professional has simply dropped with the launch of the 10T, however you continue to need to pay $799 for the smaller capability mannequin and $899 for the 256 GB model. You’ll have to wait a bit longer for the OnePlus 10T although: The units will probably be obtainable from August 25, and you may pre-order them from August 11.
If we had been to lastly evaluate each fashions, we’ve to conclude that each have their respective strengths: Those that need probably the most highly effective OnePlus smartphone with the quickest quick-charging ought to go for the OnePlus 10T. Those that need to take higher images and don’t need to dwell with out the alert slider or the adaptive show choices of the LPTO 2.0 expertise can buy the OnePlus 10 Professional.
To be sincere, I nonetheless do not know precisely the place the corporate’s journey is headed, and the OnePlus 10T is not significantly useful in letting me accept a solution. Personally, there are a bit too many compromises within the 10T in comparison with the Professional mannequin to put it on par as a flagship.
Nonetheless, as is commonly the case, your opinion is vital: If you’re searching for efficiency and don’t care a couple of telephoto lens or an alert slider, you possibly can after all go for the 10T by all means. Nonetheless, my favourite is the OnePlus 10 Professional.
