Are you searching for a smartphone under PHP 40K this 2023 that is good for gaming, multitasking, multimedia consumption, etc? Maybe the OnePlus 10T is what you are looking for. In this article, I will be sharing my review of the OnePlus 10T.
To recall, OnePlus 10T is a flagship smartphone that was released last August 2022. This model is just like a OnePlus 10 Pro with a powerful chipset and faster charging but with trade-offs in other features.
I have already been using this phone for 3 months and it is a great phone for me. To know more about this phone, let’s dive into it.
Unboxing the OnePlus 10T
OnePlus 10T also comes with a red box like others in this series. Its box includes the unit itself, welcome card, quick start guide, safety information, OnePlus stickers, SIM ejector pin, Type-C to Type-C cable, and the 150W power adapter. Yes, you read it right, it supports 150W fast charging. Let’s find out later how fast it will fully charge the phone.
Out of the box, it runs OxygenOS 12.1 based on Android 12, but OxygenOS 13 based on Android 13 is now available.
Moreover, the OnePlus 10T has a futuristic design and will surely fit your personality. It comes in Moonstone Black and Jade Green colorways. Moonstone Black has a matte finish, while Jade Green has a glossy design which makes both of them head turner.
On the bottom, we will see its SIM tray, microphone, USB Type-C port, and speaker. While at the top is another speaker and microphone. Its volume rocker is located on the left side, while its power button is on the right side.
This phone is also great for binge-watching your favorite Netflix series since it has a large 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 1B colors, and HDR10+. Its screen also supports a 120Hz refresh rate that allows you to experience more of its smoothness. In addition, its screen and back are also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Listening to music is also another level with this device because it has high-quality dual stereo speakers. Unfortunately, it does not come with a 3.5mm audio jack, but you can use a Type-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter cable like the one I bought from UGREEN.
One of my favorite features of this phone is its camera. In the back, it has 50MP Sony IMX766 main shooter, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and 2MP macro lens. It can produce superb images and videos. As a video enthusiast, I also love filming with this device because it can shoot up to 4K@60fps and supports electronic image stabilization.
Additionally, it also boasts its flagship photography capability especially in a low-light scenario using its Nightscape 2.0 feature which I also love. Its Super HDR feature is also amazing because it can improve your unevenly lit portraits. OnePlus 10T also produces excellent selfies with its 16MP front camera.
Here are the rear camera samples:

Using this device for 3 months did not disappoint me. All my tasks are done seamlessly as it features the powerful 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 octa-core processor. This device also features up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB UFS 3.1 internal storage.
Mine comes with an 8GB/128GB configuration and multitasking in this device is already great. With the latest OxygenOS 13 based on Android 13, you can expand its RAM up to 8GB Virtual RAM which allows me to switch apps without any lags.
For gaming experience, I tested playing Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Call of Duty Mobile, Apex Legend Mobile, PUBG, as well as Genshin Impact on this device. So far, OnePlus 10T is running these games fine with medium to ultra settings that I really enjoyed.
Among the games I have mentioned above, only the League of Legends: Wild Rift supports 120fps. I am just hoping Mobile Legends and other games support an ultra refresh rate in this device to take advantage of its 120Hz refresh rate.
Furthermore, the OnePlus 10T carries a large 4,800mAh battery capacity that provides me with a whole day of normal usage. When I play games straight, its battery last about 3-5 hours depending on what games I am playing.
One of the best features of this phone for me is its 150W SUPERVOOC fast charging support. I know you are excited about how this quickly fully charges the device so here it is. It only took 19 minutes to fully charge the device from 0% to 100%. It’s very fast, isn’t it?
All of the features of the OnePlus 10T are competitive and will greatly fit all your task demands this 2023. Having this flagship smartphone today will not fail you. Featuring a recent chipset, flagship camera, high-quality display, long-lasting battery, and fast charging support, making it a great companion for the long term. Speaking of the long term, this device has up to 3 years of OxygenOS updates and 4 years of security updates.
