Although, they aren't as huge as they are on the Google Pixel 2 XL. It stretches nearly, but not quite, to the edges on the left and right, leaving just over half a centimetre of bezel above and below the screen. Apple iPhone X's 2716mAh battery stands much lower than the OnePlus 5T's 3300mAh battery. You can still revert to the older version if you wish.

Speaking of hacks, OnePlus was in the news this week for leaving a factory test mode app on its phones that could make it unusually easy to get root access to the phone.

If you take a look at the gallery down below, you'll be able to see 5 wallpapers that Hampus Olsson shared via his blog, and all of these wallpapers ship with the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T has two photo shooters at the back. The fingerprint sensor has also been moved to the rear of the device to accommodate the all-screen display. It's now circular and has shifted to the rear, just above the OnePlus logo. However, the questions about its screen have affected an otherwise fantastic phone. While both the phones remain on the same software platform, the OnePlus 5T runs certain new features that are yet to come on the other phones.

The display is where the biggest change lies in the OnePlus 5T. "How about a Snapdragon 835-equipped handset with the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio 6" display that fits in a body at the size of 2016's 5.5-inchers, with 8GB RAM/128GB storage model, fast charging, dual f/1.7 aperture cameras on the back, and, thankfully, a fast finger scanner also placed there, for less than $600? A quick half-hour charge gives the OnePlus 5T enough power for the day.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is probably one of the best Android phones of the year. Instead, it relies on the front-facing camera to unlock the device.

"Low-light photography was one of the key pieces of feedback we got from users, so we designed a system that merges four pixels into one to reduce noise while having two cameras to produce portrait mode shots and a hybrid zoom system that could replace the 2x zoom of a telephoto lens", explained Pei.

Needless to say, we are going to have to test the low light camera in a non-launch-event scenario.

First, OnePlus 5 will get the open beta for Android Oreo 8.0 in November this year. We don't yet know what OnePlus has cooked up in the software, but this is a topic of detailed reviews. "OxygenOS" has "Face Unlock" feature which allows users to unlock the device just by looking at it. "Face Unlock" uses over 100 identifiers to unlock the OnePlus 5T. Best of all, it can be used in a single-handed operation. O2 is offering a 50GB data tariff for the cost of 10GB on pay monthly and, if you pre-order or order the OnePlus 5T before 6 December, you'll also get 12 months free of Xbox Live Gold.
