    I don't understand why people are saying that the phone is going to be lagging behind with updates the phone is already updated to November security update I should know because I had the phone and when staying up at 2 due to updates already. and the updates are actually being ran by OnePlus cuz I called OnePlus and they said they are doing the updates for the OnePlus phones on T-Mobile to. and you would think that he was going to do it quickly because it's one of their 5G phones. will probably get December security update next week or so. as well as we're on December the play store update as well. I'm very confident in what T-Mobile can do.

    5G is perfect for people with urban lifestyles. The low range will be no problem with small modems being everywhere in the city. The only downside is maybe those who live in more rural areas, the range may not be as effective. I think 5G is a step in the right direction! T-Mobile is pioneering its way forward into a fast 5G world!

    As indicated with the 600Mhz, while not speed boost, rural users will have much of an improvement in signal coverage. I currently have the older OnePlus 7 Pro. I'll probably not upgrade immediately as this phone is rock solid at this time and continues to perform very well. If I happened to win a 5G phone, I'd be sure to evangelize my experience. As it its currently, I continue to show my OnePlus 7 Pro and encourage family, friends and those strangers who are curious as to what I use to look at OnePlus. The fact that the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren is the current phone is all the better!

    Love that pop-up camera with no notch or punch-out on the display of my phone and so do all that see the device.

    because TMobile 7 pro user have not gotten Android 10 updates yet. TMobile is holding it for some unknown reason

    I currently do not have the OP 7T Pro ME 5G phone. I just recently upgraded to the 7pro literally before T mobile stopped selling them. I am really looking forward to trying this new 5g network. Currently I have very spotty coverage at my workplace on Ft Bliss Texas. the coverage map shows that I have really good coverage but my experience has me wondering. T-Mobile is refered to as T-Maybe on this post because your phone may shows you have service but you may still have trouble accessing your phone service and data. I really hope that this new network will turn T-Mobile's reputation around on this military post. I really love the value that this company has brought to my family for what have. I can't wait to try it

    The part of 5G to get excited about is TMobile offering unlimited home internet via 5G. They are already doing a test run. They could be the 1st to really rival the cable internet monopolies in the US. It would be great to see 100mbs internet service be affordable to all.

    that is probably a business standpoint in order to try and sell the 7t and 17 pro

    if you still really like your 6T and it's working great don't get a 7 just wait till the spring and get the 8. I got the 7 pro and I think it's a great phone, but I'm guessing if you bought a 70 or 7 pro you wouldn't see a lot of performance difference, yeah the camera would be better and the 90 Hertz is definitely nice but if you wait for the 8 I'm thinking you're going to see a performance bump a better camera and you'll get 5G so...

    I absolutely agree! That's why I'm deciding to wait. I've had the OnePlus One, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 6T. I'll probably wait for the OnePlus 8T (if it is still a thing by that time).

    I'm having major issues with battery life with my new OnePlus 7 McLaren 5g on T-Mobile. 3 days old. I've factory stored it and tried all kinds of things. my battery is dropping fast, even with good signal, and 60 Herz 1080p selected.

    I seem to be having the same issue I got my phone on Sunday. I'm waiting out a couple more days to save the battery settles and start seeing better. if not I'm going to call OnePlus and see what they can do so they see if they're aware. if not I may have to take it back and get a different phone. though I love the phone a lot though so.

    this is why I held off on 5g ..that's speed is awesome but a constant battery drain..I suggest download cccleaner on the phone and using to hibernate apps not being used in back ground regularly to cut battery drain. I do this on my regular 7 pro and great almost 18 hrs of battery life between charges

    Congratulations to OnePlus and TMobile for making compatible device and making good use of 600MHz spectrum. I can't wait to see lot more value in this solution.

    My first question is for most mobile usage, max need may be streaming YouTube when in commute or streaming movies currently to basic daily needed apps, how does needing higher bandwidth really help beyond what's already available over current 4G LTE?

    I can see it's usefulness unless say having internet services at home including rural OR providing coverage where 4G LTE didn't exist earlier and similar fixed geo based needs including MAN's.

    Second, I use an EV that currently uses 4G LTE. If it was using it's good capacity, it's good enough to load logs, data for neural networks and may occasional uploads using WiFi networks. So I think 4G LTE is still good enough. I think.

    Plus 4G LTE has longer range for it's signals. With the 600 MHz may be 5G signals may go further but do we really need it? I can't see real value.

    Suggestions welcome.

    I really don't think it's 5G is the issue bass you I believe it is is is not having great standby time. 5G is not going to drain the battery as fast as you think. this is not like I'll see you when I was a new technology this is just using better bandwidth and better spectrum on 600 and four by four. I think it's has to do with the last update they did a update us to the ember security patch which I think we're going to get updated December soon as well in the next week or so. they could have just introduced a bug. that several times on my Sony xz-2 because Sony was doing updates every month. things do happen it just sucks us with a brand new phone but it happens I love the phone other than the battery life. I'm thinking about calling T-Mobile to talk to them.

    can add one more thing using cleaners on Android is not a good idea as Android runs best when it's running things fully in the background. I never had to do this with my Sony xz-2 and it lasts me at least 18 to 20 hours I would expect a phone like the one I have now with a 4085 milliamp battery to last longer or at least the same.

    I would just wait it out. keep battery saver on and hope for new update soon. I don't think calling T-Mobile will help at all. as they are most likely aware of this issue.
