OnePlus 8T vs OnePlus 8: Which is the better gaming phone?

OnePlus 8T has just been launched and it has taken the crown of being one of the most feature rich smartphones from OnePlus. The OnePlus 8T takes things up a notch in almost every aspect and today, we look at which phone is better for gamers. The 8T comptes with hardcore gaming phones including the likes of the Asus ROG Phone 3 and Xiaomi Mi 10.

Does the tried and tested OnePlus 8 hold up against its newest competitor? Or does the OnePlus 8T overtake its predecessor with all new bells and whistles. Here's how both the phones fare when we take their gaming prowess into consideration.

More Hertz for a smooth gaming experience

When it comes to mobile games, FPS is at the forefront of your gaming experience. To complement high frames per second, you also need a display to go along with it.

The OnePlus 8 features a 90Hz refresh rate display, but the OnePlus 8T takes it up by offering 120Hz refresh rate. This is at par with some of the highest end esports gaming monitors that professional esports players use.

The high refresh rate is very useful when gaming as is the rouch response rate as the lack of either could result in poor gaming experience.

Raw power under the hood

On paper specifications of both the phones will tell you one single thing. That these two phones boast the same latest and most powerful Snapdragon 865 processor with 5G capabilities. Both the phones feature Adreno 650 GPUs, making them nearly identical on these terms.

Additionally, both the phones come with upto 12GB LPDDR4X RAM and upto 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.

On the OnePlus 8T, you also get a dedicated multi-layered cooling system that keeps the internals cool even when the action gets hot.

Software enhancements to the T

OnePlus has always catered to the need of the gamers by giving the Fnatic mode software option. Since the OnePlus 8T comes with all new OxygenOS 11, it has a slight advantage.

OnePlus has honed the gaming mode (Fnatic mode), to provide more tweaks and features to the user. Designed for power gamers, the new software allow you to supercharge your mobile gaming with the brand-new Gaming Tools featuring Mis-touch Prevention and improved notification control.

Get your game on with Fnatic Mode, Screen Recorder, Floating Window and more for an immersive gaming experience.

The next level of Warp Charge

The OnePlus 8 has a pretty good, sizeable battery of 4,300mAH which can charge using Warp Charge 30T. The OnePlus 8T however, has a bigger battery at 4,500mAh and also charges faster using 65W fast charging standard called Warp Charge 65.

For gamers on the go, this is nothing short of a lifesaver. The ultra fast charging gets you from 0-100 in just about 40 minutes, which is all the time you need to gear up for your next game. And if you can't wait to get into the battlefield, just plug in the charger while playing the game and you won't miss out on all the action anymore.
