The OnePlus 8T may not be a massive upgrade over its predecessor, but it is still among the best value flagships currently available. It has a gorgeous 120Hz AMOLED display, great battery life with 65W fast charging, 5G connectivity, and runs Android 11 out of the box.

  • What's that wallpaper? Anyone knows?
  • Better look around before accepting this update...many people complaining about broken Gpay among other things!!!! I know I am waiting until I see more reviews. Seems like somebody pooped this one out a little too quickly. Might be an Android 11 mess! YMMV
