Currently, you can get the OnePlus 7T in Glacier Blue with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $599. Alternatively, you can get the OnePlus 7T in Frosted Silver with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for the same price.
T-Mobile says it will start selling the OnePlus 7T on Oct. 18, offering both the Frosted Silver and Glacier Blue models. If you buy the phone in installments from T-Mobile, you can pay the phone in off in 24 monthly payments of $25 with no money down. As of this writing, the OnePlus 7T isn't listed on T-Mobile's website.
The new OnePlus 7T features an upgraded 6.55-inch (2400 x 1080; 90Hz) Fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ CPU. It sports 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. On the rear, you'll find its three cameras including a 48MP main camera, 16MP ultrawide lens, and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom.
The phone has a silky smooth display that looks better than the iPhone 11 Pro's own Super Retina XDR panel. That's due to the OnePlus 7T's 90Hz refresh rate, which may sound like a marketing gimmick, but it actually makes a huge difference.
In terms of performance, the new Snapdragon 855+ CPU makes the handheld fly through games, apps, and anything you throw its way. In Geekbench 5, which measures overall system performance, the 7T notched a multicore score of 2,759 — more than 100 points higher than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
You can check out its overall performance in our OnePlus 7T review, but simply put, the OnePlus 7T is the best value you'll find.
