cnet8.9/1089/100The OnePlus 5T has a bigger screen and its camera takes better low-light photos than the 5. Its few software tweaks are useful in small ways.he phone's face unlock doesn't authorize payments and its dual camera's digital rather than telephoto zoom is a step back. There's no expandable storage, and it's not rated for water resistance.

The main camera is still not as good as flagship competition
Shipping without the latest version of Android is not encouraging
Face Unlock grows frustratingly inconsistent in challenging light
Still not waterproof
