OnePlus 7 first impressions: If you liked the 6T, you'll like this

To many observers, OnePlus somewhat betrayed the value proposition its become known for when it announced the 7 Pro since it costs $120 more than the 6T did at launch. The company also unveiled a regular OnePlus 7 model that is essentially an updated 6T but with some meaningful upgrades to justify the phone's existence. Unless you live in the US, that is, where this phone apparently does not exist.
