Just months after the OnePlus 3 came out, it’s being replaced with an updated model that offers better performance. For starters, the OnePlus 3T is one of the fastest phones on the market, thanks to its zippy new Snapdragon 821 processor. And now, post-update, it’s also one of the longest-lasting. Additionally, the phone’s new 16-megapixel front camera takes great portraits in low light. You still won’t find a microSD slot for expandable storage, and the lower price here means you’ll have to settle for a full HD display instead of a quad HD panel. Still, for $440 the OnePlus 3T delivers excellent value.
