The OnePlus 3t offers Qualcomm's top-end chipset Snapdragon 821 and a whopping 6GB of RAM at a price point that is significantly lower than the rivals from more established manufacturers. Add 64GB of internal storage in the base model to the mix and the 3T does not have to worry about comparisons to the flagship models from Samsung, Sony, Apple and the rest of the bunch. Purely on paper the camera module is not quite on the same level as the powerful processing components but still looks very promising. A 1/2.8" 16MP sensor is combined with an F2.0 aperture, phase detection, and optical image stabilization. 4K video, DNG Raw support and manual control over shutter speed are all on board as well and selfie-shooters will be interested in the front camera that offers a whopping 16MP resolution.
