OnePlus 7T first impressions

OnePlus has evolved as one of the top-selling smartphone brands in the mid-to-premium category. The company is known for offering powerful hardware loaded with tonnes of features.

However, one of the most striking aspects of OnePlus smartphones is OxygenOS. The Android skin used in OnePlus smartphones is close to stock Android with minimal bloatware, but at the same offers aplenty customization options.

Another department where OnePlus shines over its competitors is providing regular updates. The company has made serious efforts to speed up the OxygenOS update delivery process in recent years.

OnePlus announced its software maintenance schedule in June 2018. According to it, the company will offer two years of regular software updates from the release date of the phone and an additional year of Android security patches.
