Believe it or not, with the OnePlus 7T, that’s exactly what you get.
OnePlus today in India announced the 7T. The device strikes a well-known and innovative balance. It’s beautiful, the performance is top-level, and the display gives a run for their money to more expensive devices.
OnePlus 7T provides Note 10 Plus display quality on a budget
Historically, despite their relatively low resolutions, OnePlus has released good displays. This helps to maintain expenses down as the battery output improves. With the 2,400x 1,080 display on the 7T, OnePlus took this strategy again. This time around, our assessment gives the recent OnePlus device the same 8.6 ratings as Note 10 Plus.
The display of Note 10 Plus is a higher resolution of 3,040 x 1,440, but with the naked eye, you can barely tell. What really matters in a display is quality that is perceived. With the display of the 7T beating Note 10 Plus in any other category, the perceived quality is close to one-to-one.
The two devices have very similar gamma, max brightness, and colour temperature, though in all three categories the 7T always comes out on top so slightly. Where Samsung really beats OnePlus is with the precision of colour. The display of the 7T is far and wide the more realistic colour display of both.
Pair the more natural display with a slightly better outdoor view, and it is easy to see how the devices got the same score despite the higher resolution of Note 10 Plus.
Ultimately, it’s about personal preference. Some people will always prefer Samsung’s devices ‘ punchy, over-saturated colours. The OnePlus 7T is the best choice for those of us who want a more precise display. Moreover, when the 7T goes in at a fraction of the price, it’s difficult not to fall in love with what OnePlus brought to the table this time around.
