A new phone debut typically means another new JerryRigEverything torture test, and that's indeed the case with the OnePlus 8T. Zack from JerryRigEverything has already taken some picks and blades to OnePlus's latest flagship, and it fares about as well as one would expect.
The OnePlus 8T was announced today, and T-Mobile is the only carrier that will sell it in the US. This time around, T-Mobile's model gets a "+" stuck to the end of the name. It turns out that the T-Mobile model will come with IP68 certification, something that the unlocked model does not boast.
OnePlus is the definition of "disruptor" in the smartphone space — or it used to be. Early devices like the OnePlus One and OnePlus 3 blew minds without burning wallets.
