Prise en main du OnePlus 10T : un très bon smartphone, sans surplus d'âme ?

In the absence of offering a complete test, here is a first opinion about the OnePlus 10T after a few hours in your company.

After a year without decline” T ” of its flagship, OnePlus returns to its semi-annual calendar in 2022 and offers a OnePlus 10T that aims to strike the right balance between the excellence of the 10 Pro and good value for money. Thus, it makes up for the conspicuous absence of the OnePlus 10 at the beginning of the year. Here is our first review of this phone.

OnePlus 10T

A OnePlus 10 Pro design

At first glance, the OnePlus 10T would look similar to the 10 Pro, but it still has some differences, starting with its photo block. Although it is still a huge plate on the back of the smartphone that contrasts with the colored casing, OnePlus took inspiration from the Oppo Find X5 Pro to offer a smoother and less angular transition. Aesthetically it remains just as marked, but to the touch the result is much softer and better integrated.

These are adjectives that qualify the entire design quite well. With its rounded shapes and its Gorilla Glass 5 glass coating, it is particularly pleasant in the hand. Nothing very surprising here, it is quite common for several years in this range that it is perfected from model to model without ever reinventing the wheel, and that is a good thing.

So OnePlus fans will be on familiar ground here, but one point still surprises those who have followed the brand since its inception: the absence of thealert sliderThis handy little switch allows you to quickly switch from silent mode to ringtone mode via the vibrator.

According to OnePlus, this is a design restriction aimed at optimizing space in the phone and integrating other components that allow, in particular, fast charging (150 W) and cooling. However, we wonder if this change will affect future generations. It’s a shame to lose this emblematic and popular element, showing that OnePlus is gradually losing everything that made it special.

Speaking of losses, the OnePlus 10T’s photo block also has other changes from the 10 Pro. Firstly, the flash is now placed in the upper right instead of the lower right. A detail. Then the statement ” hasselblad » that disappears. The association with the photography specialist has now ended, two years after his debut, leaving Oppo with the expertise of the brand that equipped the Apollo missions of the late 1960s.

Please note that this OnePlus 10T is only IP54 certified in France. The brand, however, ensures that it is a matter of cost savings, as was the case at the time of the first waterproof smartphones.

The OnePlus 10T screen is above all practical

On the front, there’s also a slight change: the front camera is now centered against the top edge of the screen instead of being housed in the top left corner. It’s a bit less discreet when consuming full-screen content, but it allows for a more focused gaze when taking selfies. A blessing in disguise, therefore, depending on its main uses.

At the same time, the edges remain thin and even and the curved screen gives way to a flat screen, which adds a small millimeter in width to maintain the 6.7-inch diagonal. As always with the T range, practicality takes priority over pure aesthetics.

We also find this in the technical characteristics of the panel: Full HD + (1080p) instead of WQHD + (1440p) and a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz that can only alternate at 60 Hz, 90 Hz or its maximum instead of adapting to uses by going down to 1 Hz. More than the screen, this mainly questions the autonomy, but to judge it, this will require a full test of the phone.

Beyond this purely quantified aspect, OnePlus has opted as always for a beautiful OLED screen panel, bright, contrasting and with beautiful colors. Once again, we’ll wait for the full test to publish the results recorded by our probe, but it’s pretty cool to look at.

OxygenOS 12 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1

Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, 8-16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128-256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The OnePlus 10T is equipped like a true champion. Add to that the animations of OxygenOS 12, OnePlus’ interface based on Android 12, and you’ve got an extremely smooth everyday experience, with the exception of the Google Discover panel, to the left of the home page, which may have a slight slowdown when open.

To this, OnePlus has added a larger heat dissipation area here and uses graphene for this, promising much better thermal management than on the 10 Pro. Its better-designed chip should also help solve this problem that many phones encountered earlier. of year. This was also the only issue raised on the performance side during our test of the 10 Pro, so we can say we’re pretty confident on this point.

Being the same interface in the OnePlus 10T as in the model from the beginning of the year, we will not go back to it. Fans will feel that Oppo has been there and OxygenOS has changed, but the plethora of customization effects are still there. We’ll just be sorry that it gets almost messy at times.

As always when prices drop, the biggest compromises of the OnePlus 10T are made at the camera level. The wide angle is still of quality with a 50 Mpx IMX766 sensor (the same as the Zenfone 9 or the Nothing phone(1) for example) coupled with optical stabilization, but the ultra wide angle drops to 8 Mpx (compared to 50MP). of the 10 Pro). The telephoto lens disappears completely to make way for a 2 Mpx macro sensor, whose usefulness is highly questioned.

A quick word about Hasselblad. In announcing the partnership, OnePlus explained that the photography specialist would first help it improve its software processing on the OP9 generation, and then bring its expertise to the hardware side thereafter. On the 10 Pro, the partnership was still focused on software. Therefore, your loss should not be felt unduly.

The main camera is pretty well done, with detailed sharpness and eye-pleasing processing, but similar setups can be found on lower-cost smartphones today. We found the algorithms to be good with a portrait mode that is smooth, progressive and precise in detail cutting. However, the handling of strong lights quickly shows some limits and night photos turn yellow very quickly. These are obviously extremely difficult conditions to handle, but a cheaper Pixel 6 does better.

Here are some sample photos taken with the OnePlus 10T:

Obviously we will have to wait for the full test to put it to the test in more diverse conditions.

OnePlus 10T battery and network

We only tested this OnePlus 10T very quickly, so we can’t really talk about its real autonomy. On the other hand, between its well-optimized chip and its 4,800 mAh battery, we can expect decent results. But the most interesting thing is obviously its 150 Watt SuperVooc charging, promising a full recharge in just 19 minutes. The artificial intelligence of the phone is responsible for optimizing everything according to the conditions and especially the temperature.

If you’re used to charging your smartphone overnight, charging will slow down to conserve batteries, even if it gets too hot or a game starts. Conversely, if it’s too cold, the phone will heat up the cells to make charging easier. like in an electric car.

Designed for gamers, the OnePlus 10T has also revised its network part with a total of 14 antennas, some of which are horizontal. This allows, in particular, to capture better when holding the smartphone in landscape mode.

Our opinion on the OnePlus 10T

The OnePlus 10T looks very promising, in line with its predecessors. A beautiful screen, superior performance, a smooth interface, extremely fast loading… All the elements that made OnePlus so successful are there. All, except perhaps the waste of soul that there was before in the search for little extras that would make a difference, like the late alert slider. Suffice it to say that, at first glance, the OnePlus 10T doesn’t seem to disappoint and gives its money’s worth… as much as a good Oppo smartphone, the two brands have standardized a lot in a short time.

The OnePlus 10T is available for pre-order at €729 for the model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, and at €829 for the 16/256 GB model.
