    Hi , I'm thinking of getting the 8t , I still use wired headphones as well as Bluetooth , I've seen a OnePlus usb headphone adapter but in the description it says only for OnePlus 7,7t,8,9 etc no mention of 8t BUT further down the description it say it's ok with the 8t ! Has anyone tried it on the 8t , does it work ??? Thanks

    Hi there, here is a line by line comparison https://m.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=10747&idPhone2=10420

    I would recommend going for OnePlus 9 because of new processor and camera. Even though you are not interested in taking photos being but getting future proof is always good.

    However, I would finally say that you should consider the price difference. The trade off in selecting OnePlus 8T is camera and older processor (which doesn't heat).

    The 8t supports most standard headphone adapters on USB C. It could be that you need to turn on OTG for it though.

    OnePlus haven't updated the list of devices in the screenshot. It is compatible don't you worry.

    Neither, tbh. The 9 has a plastic frame, which will lead to slower heat dissipation and the Snapdragon 888 is known to heat quite a bit. The 8T will get updates for a year less, has a lot of issues like system UI crashes, fluctuating battery charging speeds, and highly inconsistent battery backup (do check the threads in each of their sub-forums. You'll find a ton of users complaining about issues in each of them).
    If software isn't a top priority, the Xiaomi Mi11 Pro is a better bet (and you save a lot of money as compared to the OnePlus 9) or if you can wait for Asus Zenfone 8 Flip (huge battery, no punch-hole, SD888, and should be cheaper than the 9 too). Else, the S20 FE 5G is also a good bet (better customer service, Waterproofing, gets updates for longer, better camera even if it doesn't matter to you, and similar battery to the 8T)

    Thanks , unfortunately here in the u.k we get the Exynos chip in our Samsung phones which is one of the reasons my galaxy S10 is getting quite poor , has the UI crash on the 8t not been fixed ???

    Hi there, you can use this thread if you have any questions on the device instead of creating multiple threads.
