OnePlus 5T Review: Price to Performance King!

Rating: 8.5.

For £499, the OnePlus 5T looks like it has everything you'd expect from a phone that costs hundreds of pounds more. There's a 6in AMOLED display, Snapdragon 835 processor, dual camera setup, fingerprint scanner and new facial recognition technology. Is the OnePlus 5T as good as it gets for a mid-range smartphone, or is it just too good to be true? Let's find out.

With the OnePlus 5T available in black, white or red variants, I must admit I was somewhat relieved to be sent the black model – a red phone isn't quite my cup of tea. There's also a choice when it comes to RAM and internal storage: the 5T can be had with 6GB RAM/64GB storage, or 8GB RAM/128GB storage, though neither supports microSD cards. I was sent the latter configuration, though the former does save you an extra £50.

You will no longer need a Facebook account for your Quest VR headset starting this month

Back in 2020, upon launching the Quest 2 headset, Meta made it a requirement that Facebook accounts be used to log in to the headset, a policy that caused a lot of issues and controversy at the time. Just one year later, the company changed its mind and began working on a new Facebook-less login system. It has been a while since the last update, but later this month, Facebook logins will no longer be required for VR headsets.
