OnePlus 5T review, 4 months later: Still the phone to beat

Four months after its release, the OnePlus 5T is still one of the best options in the $ 500 category.

The Galaxy S9+ is a much better phone with a case on it

It’s a great device either way.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t love dropping my phone. It’s about as enjoyable as burning your tongue on hot coffee or stubbing your toe on the edge of a table. Not only can the phone crack or stop working completely, but the fear of dropping it can mar the experience of using it in the first place.
