OnePlus 6T VS OnePlus 6 : Should You Upgrade?

In summary we can call OnePlus 6T the improved OnePlus 6. When you check the hardware nothing much has changed. The phone has a dewdrop notch design for the camera and has also included an in display fingerprint sensor. It has a 3700mAh battery capacity but there is no room for a headphone jack.

If you have OnePlus 6 you can hold onto it for a while. It is still one of the best devices out here. There is nothing great about OnePlus 6T. If you want wired audio then you are better off with OnePlus 6.

Every year OnePlus has been releasing two flagship phones for the last two years. When they release the second device they are just trying to make some minor improvements here and there. That is what has happened with OnePlus 6. There are very little changes when it comes to the hardware. Let's see if you should upgrade to OnePlus 6T.

Should you upgrade from the OnePlus 6 to the OnePlus 6T?

When it comes to releasing new models OnePlus doesn't change a lot of hardware elements or the design of the phones. The specs one OnePlus 6T and those on OnePlus are just the same. The main difference between these two phones is that OnePlus 6T has a dewdrop design cutout at the top and now it has an in display fingerprint scanner.

OnePlus 6T has a bigger screen display of 6.41 inches while OnePlus 6 has a display screen of 6.28 inches. OnePlus 6T is 0.6mm narrower than OnePlus 6. OnePlus 6T is heavier than OnePlus. The larger battery capacity of 3700mAh makes it heavier.  The notch at the top is easily ignorable and it is not annoying. The in display fingerprint sensor is a cool way to unlock your phone. It is not the most reliable way of unlocking your device. There is an optical in display module with takes a second to unlock. It is quite annoying when the phone is placed flat on a table.

At times the sensor may fail to recognize  you fingerprint on several occasions. If you want to upgrade because of the in display sensor then its better if you just wait. The tech used is amazing but how it was implemented is the issue. The face unlock feature on OnePlus 6T is just as accurate as that on OnePlus 6. Face unlock feature is among the fastest way to unlock your phone on Android today.

When it comes to the processor both phones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which has 8GB or 6GB of RAM. They both have Bluetooth 5.0, AptX HD and dual cameras. On OnePlus 6T you will get an internal memory of 128GB. Both OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have a Gorilla Glass 6 at the back and at the front. It gives this phone the protection that it needs. But it's still advisable to buy a protective case for more durability.

There have been a trend of manufacturers not including a headphone jack on their devices. OnePlus 6T has followed suite. Fans were puzzled with the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Most manufacturers are moving away from wired audio.

OnePlus has never disappointed when it comes to its performance. With the support of Snapdragon 845 you can be confident of the best performance on an Android device. There will be no slow downs when you regularly use this device.

OnePlus is utilizing its huge RAM to the fullest. They have included a new feature called the 'smart boost' which caches data from those apps which are frequently used by the RAM. it helps in boosting the RAM. This feature was designed for games. It would help games such as PUBG to load faster.

 Smart boost is only available on OnePlus 6T but i believe it maybe available in other OnePlus devices soon. When it comes to the software department things are just the same. OnePlus didn't make major changes. OnePlus 6 picked up the Android Pie 9.0 and OnePlus 6T is also running on Android 9.0. They are both having the latest software. They also have their own operating system called the OxygenOS. OxygenOS has one of the best third party software experience on an Android device.

When it comes to the camera department there is no difference. OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have the same camera. OnePlus 6T has a Nightscape mode that stacks numerous pics to produce a more clear image in a low lit area.

OnePlus 6T has nothing new or cool that will make you want to upgrade. The in display tech is being perfected. It will take a while before it is accurate and on the same level as some other manufacturers. The traditional fingerprint sensor is still faster and much more accurate than the in display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have the same hardware specs. OnePlus 6 is still a very capable phone in 2018. Users will always love it and it still has a 3.5mm headphone jack which is good for those who like wired audio.


The in display fingerprint sensor is quite cool but it is not the best. It's not as fast and as accurate as the traditional fingerprint sensor.

The software on both phones is identical. There are no major differences between the two phones. They are almost identical. The performance is also the same.

OnePlus 6T

Uses everything on OnePlus 6  and makes some few minor adjustments and improvements. With OnePlus 6T you will get a notched phone and an in display sensor. This is the first phone from OnePlus with a notch design and an in display fingerprint sensor. The hardware is just the same as that on OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6

This phone is still among the best phones of 2018. It has been compared to the likes of IPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9. This phone was launched just 5 months ago and is still among the best phones of 2018.

Gorilla Glass 3 protects the front of this screen. When you check the back of this phone HMD decided to also use a glass. The glass has been termed a 'toughened' glass. The glass makes this phone to look slick. Some consumers would have loved if the back of the phone was made of metal instead of glass. Metal is more durable than glass.

The glass back of this phone is constantly covered with fingerprint smudges. When it comes to wireless charging it is not supported on this phone. The glass is just for design and aesthetics. It doesn't help in wireless charging. When you check the back of this phone you will find a fingerprint sensor just below the camera.

The build on this phone is quite impressive and superb. The frame on this phone is aluminum. The edges on this phone slope towards the screen and to the rear. The phone stands out because of the colors used for the edges and the frame. The copper accents used on this phone makes the phone look superb.

There is a midnight blue color with silver accents at the edges. There are no rough edges when you are handling this phone because of the curved glass at the front and at the back.


Nokia 7.1 comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. This isn't the latest processor but it does its job perfectly. There are two models.

Something good about Nokia is that it gets fast updates.

With Android One you will get monthly security updates for a period of three years and there will be version updates for a period of two years. The update to Android Pie will be faster than what other manufacturers do. This is quite impressive.

When it comes to the software there is nothing new added.

RED Hydrogen One review: An impressive Phone With Several Issues

Hydrogen One is a phone that we can't stop looking at. It has a nice 3D design and the technology used on this device is awesome.


This is the most unique phone of 2018. There is no other phone with such a design. It's attractive to the eye. The back of this phone has two cameras. The edges on this phone are ridged thus improving its grip. On the right side of this phone there is shutter button and there is also a fingerprint scanner on the same side. It also works as a power button.

You will find a TYPE USB-C charging port at the bottom. There is a headphone jack at the top. The fingerprint sensor responds quite fast. There is no delay in unlocking the phone. The front of this phone has a similar appearance to that of  Razer phone 2. There are chunky bezels at the top and at the bottom. The phone is bulky thus maybe hard to reach the top part of the phone. Red Hydrogen weighs 263 grams. It's quite heavy for s smartphone.

This phone can withstand several drops since the design quality is quite strong. This phone is made of aluminum and there is also a titanium model available. But it will cost you $1,595 to obtain it.


Red Hydrogen will have three mods. There will be a Battery mod, a cinema mod and an expandable memory mod. The cinema mod is quite interesting. You will be able to attach lens from Nikon, Sony, Canon and Fujifilm. All these sounds incredible but the problem is that all these mods will be expected from the fall of 2019. I'm sure it will also be expensive. By then other manufacturers would have already released new awesome gadgets. Thus the Red Hydrogen will be at the losing side.


Two features on this phone are really interesting. The cinema mod and the 4 view display are really exciting.  This phone can display content in 3D. The effect of the 3D is that it's not that perfect. It kinda looks fuzzy and it doesn't look great at all angles. What can you do with the 4 view?

You can record videos or take pice in 4 view using the camera app. Red Hydrogen have been in talks with instagram and facebook so that they could support the 4 View file format. There is an app called the Red Leia Loft which enables you to access apps and games that support 4 View technology. The app has minimal content. More content will be available later on.

Red Hydrogen has their own netflix. Theirs is called Hydrogen Network with which you can watch movies with 3D effect on your phone. Soon Warner Brothers Studios will be releasing several videos in 4-view format. Movies like Ready player one and fantastic beasts have the 4 view file format. The viewing experience is quite impressive.

Red Hydrogen has a 5.7 inch display screen with a picture resolution of just 2,560 x 1,440. The colors are sharp and vibrant. In broad daylight it look pretty awesome but it's not as good as the screen on iPhone XS or on Samsung Galaxy S9. Stereo speakers provide the sound on this phone. The sound quality on Razer phone 2 is better than that on Red Hydrogen.


Red Hydrogen One comes with a Qualcomm snapdragon 835 chip. This chip is quite outdated. It is from 2017. Most phones from 2018 came with a snapdragon 845. This phone also comes with 6GB of RAM.

The performance of this phone isn't exactly the best. It is good but it's not the best. Opening different apps on this phone is quite slow. There is lag when you are moving from one app to another. The speed on this phone won't always be 100%. At times this phone maybe slow or sluggish. From time to time the processor on this phone will struggle.

Red Hydrogen One supports Android 8.1 Oreo. There is no word if there will be any updates. You can customize this phone according to your preferences. Red Hydrogen One has an internal storage of 128GB and there is also a microSD slot on this phone. You can always expand your memory. The titanium model of Red Hydrogen One has an internal storage of 256GB.


Red Hydrogen One has a total of 4 cameras. There are two at the front and there are two at the back. With both the front and back cameras you can take pics in 4 view. On the camera app there is a button that you can press so as to use the 4 view. Pics in 4 view can only be shareed to people who have a phone that supports 4 view. If you share the pics to someone who whose phone doesn't support 4 view then they will receive the pics in 2D.

One problem that you will notice is that pics converted from 4 view don't always look as good when they get converted to 2D. This phone supports HDR and the photos taken in 2D aren't the best. Photos taken in low light tend to appear blurry and if you aren't still you will take awful pics.

Images taken in Potrait mode looked washed out and lacked details. The front facing camera doesn't disappoint. It took awesome pics in Potrait mode. In low light there is nothing impressive to talk about. There is also a feature called the Pro Mode. The camera department on this phone isn't exactly the best. It is not as good as that on Huawei P20 or pixel 3.


The best feature about this phone is in its battery. Red Hydrogen One has a 4,500mAh battery capacity. This battery can last up to Two days of use. Most phones last just a day of regular usage. This battery is quite huge and impressive.


Red Hydrogen One is expensive to buy. It costs $1,295 for the aluminum model and it also costs 1'595 for the titanium model. It will be available in most retailers from November 2.
