Upgrading from a OnePlus 6 to the latest OnePlus 7T. Is it worth it?

If we say, “OnePlus has done it again!”, it means two things. Either it has made a killer flagship smartphone yet again, or has basically made the same phone twice. The company releases new flagship phones at a maximum interval of 6 months, and hence just in within 18 past months, it has travelled a journey from the superhit OnePlus 6 to the latest OnePlus 7T, comprising of OnePlus 7 pro in between. Although the OnePlus 6 was a phone with the best specs and performance at the time, people didn’t even get the time to explore all its features before the next one was launched. And that leads us all to the question, are the newer phones by OnePlus actually an upgrade or are they just changing names and screen size? Looking at the OnePlus 6 one may easily figure out that a lot has changed at least on the outside of the 7 gen, but the difference between 7 pro and 7T remains minimal. Yes, the OnePlus 7T Pro is similar to OnePlus 7 Pro in more ways than one. Not that you won’t be able to access online casinos in any of the above-mentioned devices but the 7T also has many new features we need to go through before giving our verdict. Just like clicking on would introduce you to a detailed inspection on online casinos, reading below is going to help you be the judge for yourself if you should upgrade or not.


  • 6.67-inch, QHD+, Fluid AMOLED
  • Snapdragon 855 Plus
  • 8GB RAM
  • 16-megapixel front camera
  • Triple Sensor: 48-megapixel main, 8-megapixel telephoto, 16-megapixel ultrawide rear camera
  • 4085mAh, Warp Charge 30T


The OnePlus 7T Pro has the same design as its predecessor, the 7 Pro. In fact, if there’s one of each kept side by side, it’s hard to tell which is which without touching them. But it’s similar because it’s good.

It’s still got the same pop-up front camera that has the 16-megapixel front camera that hops back into its shell at the slightest hint of danger. The pop-up camera means that the phone’s 6.67-inch QHD+ screen is completely notch-free. You’ll appreciate the beautiful, massive screen especially while playing games — from action games like PUBG to betting games in BlueFox Casino — and watching movies.

Additionally, the visual experience of the 7T Pro is further boosted by the Fluid AMOLED’s superb screen quality, 90 Hz refresh rate, and the dual Dolby Atmos speakers. All of which is similar to the 7 Pro; but can it be called a bad thing?

The 90 Hz max refresh rate which created a buzz when it was first introduced by OnePlus is still a big conversation starter for this phone. The extremely smooth screen display has a higher refresh and polling rate and reduces the delay between command and execution. Gamers should know that the increased refresh rate will give them a tiny competitive advantage while playing online.


While the OnePlus continues to be a trailblazer and a flagship killer in most of the aspects of the smartphone space, it hasn’t quite been able to catch up to standards set by other brands like Apple and Samsung.

Regarding its looks, the 7T Pro has the same camera setup as the 7 Pro. It has a triple-sensor rear camera setup paired with a 48-megapixel main, 8-megapixel telephoto and 16-megapixel wide-angle sensors.

However, there is indeed something new — Macro mode. This mode will let you click usable pictures of subjects that are just 2.5cm away, a range a which most other phones can’t even focus.


The biggest changes between the 7T Pro and the OnePlus 6 or even the 7 Pro lies in the hardware aspects. The newer phone has the Qualcomm’s latest gaming-centred Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU. It also has a battery capacity of 4085 mAh supported by the custom Warp Charge 30T technology.

This fast charging technology means your phone will go from 0 to 70% in just half an hour. In regular usage, you’ll get about two days’ worth of charge out of the 7T Pro. This isn’t quite industry-leading but is understandable since the Fluid AMOLED screen puts extra strain on the battery. You’ll notice that streaming on the device discharges it at a rate of 6 to 8% per hour and gaming bumps it up to 14 to 17% per hour. These scores are fairly standard with most flagships available today.


So what should you do? Should you buy the new OnePlus 7T Pro or stick with your existing phone? If you’re already invested in a 7 Pro, there’s little reason to upgrade now since most of the features are the same. However, it stands that OnePlus 7T Pro is a great phone on its own and won’t leave its user hanging for more.
