    Convenience, style, performance, and speed — these are the criteria that, as users, we look for in a smartphone. OnePlus delivers all four in one powerful device, the 10T 5G. With its evolutionary speed, the OnePlus 10T 5G surpasses expectations.

    Design: 5/5

    Our review unit came in a stunning Jade Green color. Its front and back are made of glass and are supported by a plastic frame. Despite its glass material, the smartphone is durable. The package includes a red USB-C cable, a 125W SUPERVOOC charger, two hard protective cases, a pin ejector, and a user manual.

    The power button is on the right side; the volume rocker is on the left; the USB-C charging port and sim card tray are both located at the bottom; the fingerprint scanner is in-display; the rear and front cameras are at their usual placements.

    Hardware: 5/5

    The OnePlus 10T 5G runs on OxygenOS based on Android 12 and is powered by a flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 that delivers x4 speed and the most advanced platform that Qualcomm offers. It also features a 6.7” 120Hz Fluid Display with 10-bit color for accurate colors and top-tier brightness, plus 120Hz adaptive frame rate. Our test unit has 16GB RAM and 256GB storage. Its battery is 4800mAh with a 150W SUPERVOOC fast charger. Its triple rear camera consists of an 50MP wide with an IMX766 sensor, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro. The front camera is 16MP wide and includes HDR.

    User Experience: 5/5

    When the test unit arrived, I felt like a child unwrapping her gift on Christmas day, as the box that the phone came in was as large as a shoebox. When I took out the phone, I was in awe to see the OnePlus 10T 5G. It was a gorgeous smartphone made of glass, luxurious to the touch, and far one of my favorite designs. In addition, as I tested whether its performance lived up to the hype, I was pleased that it did not disappoint. 

    First, camera performance and quality are remarkable. The IMX766 sensor enhances stability when capturing photos and videos, and although the colors were slightly off, the results are crisp and sharp.

    Second, the OnePlus 10T 5G uses a Fluid AMOLED display, so videos are buttery smooth, colors are vivid with true black, and the screen is bright. You also have the option to change your screen’s color display on its Screen Color mode, including a video color enhancer and a bright HDR video. 

    You won’t have any issues playing mobile games with the 10T 5G. Just like watching videos, gaming graphics are as smooth and seamless. I didn’t experience overheating or crashing, and the games did not lag. 

    Another plus point for media consumption on this smartphone are its dual speakers that produce crisp and clear sounds.

    Its performance is unquestionable. With the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the OnePlus 10T 5G is without doubt a fast smartphone. Launching and switching between applications can be done in a snap.

    Last but not the least, its 4800mAh battery can last you the whole day, depending on your usage. Its charging capability is also very impressive, as you can get your phone from 0% to 100% in just 20 minutes with the 150W SUPERVOOC charger.

    Value: 4/5

    If you’re looking for a smartphone that has great performance, camera, style, and extended use, the OnePlus 10T 5G is a must-buy for a reasonable PHP35,990.
