Top 5 Alternatives For OnePlus 8T- Read Before You Buy
The OnePlus 8T is a decent device, with plenty of features and top of the line specifications, but it is always good to check different devices in the same range before making a decision. Here we talk about the 5 alternatives of the OnePlus 8T, which include devices from Samsung, OnePlus, and even Apple! Read away to see the best options in the 40-50k price range.
Highlights of the Story
- OnePlus 8T is the latest offering from OnePlus, which is an upgrade to the OnePlus 8 that was announced a few months ago.
- In case you are looking for smartphones that are as good as 8T and are priced similarly, here are some options from Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi.
The OnePlus 8T is the latest smartphone that OnePlus has to offer and while the device is good, there are other options out there, which can be sought after, since, it is never wrong to look at the other alternate options. So, what are the fishes in the sea? Let us list them out. Before we discuss the same, lets recall the specifications of the OnePlus 8T.
The OnePlus 8T features a 6.55-inch FHD+ display, which is of the AMOLED variety. This panel also comes with a refresh rate of 120Hz, a feature that was limited to the OnePlus 8 Pro. In terms of performance, the device retains the Snapdragon 865 present on both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro and comes with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. As for the optics, the device retains the same 48-megapixel sensor as the OnePlus 8, which did not provide promising results. The major headlining feature of the 8T is the presence of 65W fast charging, which according to OnePlus offers a day’s power in just 15 mins.
The device starts at INR 42,999 in India and is available in Aquamarine Green, Lunar Silver, and a special edition Cyberpunk edition, although that is limited to the Chinese market.
Now that the 8T has been discussed, let us list out some alternatives to the OnePlus 8T.
1. Mi 10T Pro
The Mi 10T Pro is the first device on our list, and, it promises some features that the OnePlus 8T does not have. The main highlight of this device is the display, which is a 6.67-inch LCD display, which might seem odd, considering the 8T features an AMOLED panel, however, the best thing with the 10T Pro is the 144 Hz refresh rate, something that is not common with regular devices in any segment.
The performance of the device is similar to the 8T due to the presence of the Snapdragon 865. The cameras of this device are a bit better than the 8T as well since it features a primary 108-megapixel sensor, capable of some amazing shots and, the video capabilities are far better than OnePlus 8T. One area where it loses out is the software, wherein Oxygen OS is far better in terms of usability.
Overall, the Mi 10T Pro is one of the best alternatives to the 8T, and, being priced at Rs. 39,990 it is cheaper than the 8T, a bit of a better value proposition as well.
2. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is the next device on the list, and, considering how it is a bit more expensive than the 8T, it might not appeal to those on a tight budget. However, it is a good alternative and, hence we thought of adding it to the list.
The device features a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED panel, which in itself is a great thing, considering how good Samsung panels are, and, the cherry on top here is in the form of a refresh rate of 120Hz. This combo makes this device’s display far more appealing than alternatives at the same price with LCDs or 90Hz refresh rates.
The performance however is not as good as compared to the OnePlus 8T, considering the device comes with an Exynos 990 chipset, which has some heating issues and is beaten quite easily by the Snapdragon 865, but, for most people, it will be just fine.
Cameras are a place where the S20 FE does a clean sweep, considering it features a 12-megapixel primary sensor, coupled with a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor with up to 30X Zoom and a third 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. All these cameras are flagship-grade and in nine out of ten scenarios, beat the 8T. For Rs 50,000, the S20 FE is quite a bit more expensive, but, for a Samsung fan, this might be the best option, period.
3. OnePlus 8 Pro
Confused? No need to be. The OnePlus 8 Pro is still the flagship. In case you have a higher budget and do not mind handing over a little bit more money for a device and, if you are a OnePlus Fanatic, the 8 Pro is still the best option.
To add to that, the cameras of the 8 Pro are much better and more importantly, if you are in need of a device with an IP rating of IP68 and, wireless charging, the 8 Pro is the best. Basically, in the words of OnePlus “The 8 Pro is our flagship”

4. iPhone 11
Available for INR 50,000 as of the time of writing this article, the iPhone 11 is one of the best options for those who want to shift into the iOS bubble. While the new 2020 SE is a cheaper option, the 11 is the best in terms of value.
The iPhone 11 features a chipset better than all the chips featured in this list. The cameras too are much better than other devices featured, even if it is a 12-megapixel sensor. One major feature is also software support, which will run longer than other devices. To sum it up, the iPhone 11 is not only a good alternative, it is also the best option for a person contemplating a shift to the iOS ecosystem.
5. Realme X50 Pro
The final option comes from Realme, which is part of BBK electronics, which incidentally also owns OnePlus. The Realme X50 Pro is one of the cheapest options in this list, but, that does not mean the device itself is not good. It features a bright, vibrant 6.44-inch panel, which is an AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz.
The performance of Realme X50 Pro is similar to most devices on this list, with the Snapdragon 865 processor, which also means the device has 5G support. The cameras are adequate, with a 64-megapixel based quad-camera stack. Retailing for INR 34,999, this is also the cheapest option on this list.
This concludes our list of 5 alternatives to the OnePlus 8T. We hope it has been helpful and you can now make a decision on which device to get.
