Here are more photos captured with the OnePlus 5T. Click on each image to view its full resolution.
While only by a small margin, I think the OnePlus 5T takes better photos than its predecessor. The difference is hard to spot in good light because they both have that OnePlus-y post-processing (saturated colours, over-sharpened edges) about them, the differences are more obvious in low light. Noise management is slightly better and that makes a difference when the going gets dark.
One small touch I enjoyed about photography with the OnePlus 5T is the fact that you can add a semi custom watermark. Rather than have the generic manufacturer ones, you can also add your name or Instagram handle or whatever you want to it which is a pretty cool touch.
That said, I don’t think the difference in camera performance is big enough that OnePlus 5 owners should be kicking themselves. They’re both more than good enough for casual photography.
In this photo, OnePlus tendency to overprocess their images comes out:
This image was taken in pretty much a pitch black alley with auto-exposure. It still captured the colours reasonably well:
The 5T kind of failed in this first image. Perhaps the lighting was a little challenging for it but it wasn’t very bokeh-ed:
I would also like to apologise for the lack of a Bonus Selfie. I know you guys love that. Fret not, it’ll return in the next phone review!
