huxley1t , via OnePlus 5T Midnight Black , Nov 25, 2019 : Hello everyone, It’s Huxley here from the west side of the US. I just ordered the 7T to replace my 2 year-old 5T and I wanted to share with you my journey of how I made this decision. A little background about myself. I am a Product / User Experience Designer, this translates to my enthusiasm for tech and new products. However, I am not someone who upgrades every single device to the newest because I just don't find the need to upgrade every year and develop the same emotional connection with newer products. Since my dad’s Nexus 5 (I know) was dying, I thought it was about time to pass along my 5T to him and get a new phone for me. I had been eyeing on a few phones (Redmi K20 Pro Premium, Meizu 16s Pro, Oppo Reno Ace, Realme x2 Pro, OnePlus 7T Pro, and OnePlus 7 Pro to be exact) for months before I finally pull the trigger of getting the 7T. All of them are great phones, but I just don't find the emotional connection with them due to OS or design that I am not personally a fan of. What won me over about the 7T was not only the new technology that wasn't available on my 5T, such as the 90Hz display or the Macro Mode camera, but the overall design of the 7T. Weirdly to say, I had a strong connection to the back design of the 7T. Unlike the 5T, the 7T is more recognizable compared to all the other phones above, which is a new experience that I never had with my 5T. Adding on to that, the non-curved screen with a teardrop selfie camera on the front also helped the transition from the 5T to the 7T. Combining new technology such as the 90Hz display, macro mode, and new battery technology, with a fast and smooth OS, and a much more recognizable design, I thought it was time to say goodbye to the 5T and say hello to my brand new 7T. Never Settle! 真香!
