OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition

OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition

Star Wars, the iconic series that took off in the year 1977 has a long history attached to humanity when you look at it today. Created by George Lucas, the space opera has defined modern technology in ways that could not have been fathomed back then. With the second film in the sequel trilogy, hitting theaters on Friday, OnePlus has launched a Star Wars Edition of their latest flagship smartphone, OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus’ homage to the series is an interesting take on the whole franchise. Here is a company of modern times welcoming back Luke Skywalker, 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. And if that itself doesn’t give goosebumps to the Star Wars fan in you, their Star Wars Edition OnePlus 5T surely will. While this special edition has design tweaks, the hardware that comes with it is the same as that of the normal 5T. You can read our full review of OnePlus 5T here.

In a galaxy far, far away

The OnePlus 5T comes in a black box with the markings of Star Wars The Last Jedi, OnePlus 5T in red and white accents. It’s a special edition and the company has made it feel just that. Pop-out the cover and you will see the smartphone in all its glory.

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition has a Sandstone white finish on the rear which is how it is placed inside the box, surrounded by the dark side.

It just feels like a surreal mix of Star Wars legacy and smartphones that every fan of the franchise will feel nostalgic, hyperactive and happy when unboxing this special edition. This experience is elated even further when one removes the sheet on which the phone rests. Underneath, there’s a custom-made case for the phone which resembles a miniaturized version of Kylo Ren’s mask.

The case feels sturdy in hand, like one of those Otterbox or Spigen armor cases. It’s one thing to have just another armor case to protect your Star Wars edition smartphone, but having this case is just straight-up pizzazz. It has Star Wars The Last Jedi stamped on the inside and the OnePlus insignia engraved on the bottom-right side.

With all of this, you will probably feel overwhelmed just like the fan inside me did. Next item inside the box is the proprietary Dash Charger in a mix of white and red. Things don’t end up there. There’s the usual paperwork followed by a OnePlus Star Wars sticker which looks amazing, ready to go on the laptop.

OnePlus seems to have left no stones unturned with the Star Wars Edition of OnePlus 5T and you will be thrilled to unbox it just like us.

Design and build quality: How’s it like?

OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition treads the line between the dark and light side of the force. The back of the smartphone has a similar finish to that of the Sandstone Black variant of previous OnePlus phones, only white. It’s a rough white finish with the OnePlus logo beneath the fingerprint sensor in metallic black and the Star Wars emblem in red outline.

On the right edge, the lock/unlock button and the SIM slot have a black accent while on the left only the volume rockers are black colored. The alert slider on the left edge has a red accent (which OnePlus calls Red Mineral) to it that looks really cool.

Now, one might think as to why OnePlus went with the White and Red combination here. One reason for it is that the back of the Star Wars Edition is a reference to the light side of the Force while the all black front more than makes it up to the dark side.

The second reason is that the Sandstone White finish on the rear has got to do with a new planet that will be introduced in The Last Jedi. Planet Crait, which has already made its debut in the film’s trailers, is an uninhabited planet in a remote location of the galaxy. It is a small planet with its surface covered with white salt. Hence the back of the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition. Underneath, its red mineral cover forms the base of the planet.

In one of the introductory videos, director Rian Johnson curiously says, “what would a battle on a planet like that look like?” and if you have seen the trailers, you do know how they look like.

This red mineral covered planet is the inspiration behind all the red elements on the Star Wars Edition OnePlus 5T.

The phone looks really nice to hold in hand and as OnePlus has done away with the metallic back in lieu of Sandstone White, the 5T feels lighter than the normal version. 

To make the OnePlus 5T feel more like a tribute to series, OnePlus has created a special Star Wars red theme for this edition which looks awesome and goes with the theme. Apart from this, there are special Star Wars wallpapers which are really cool and fulfils the overall experience the phone demands.

Other than the design and the theme, it’s everything that the OnePlus 5T is. A powerful smartphone powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and internal storage of 64GB/128GB.

Made for fans

The Star Wars Edition is something that will attract many fans because it stays true to the pop-culture icon that Star Wars is with its design and aesthetics. It’s a treat for every fan of the series because the panache is strong with this one.

OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition price and availability

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will go on sale starting December 15th midnight at Rs 38,999.

Along with this, the Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro feature real-time heart rate monitoring, automatic activity detection that detects motions like walking, running, cycling along with other such dynamic activities.

Samsung Gear Sport

The Gear Sport comes with a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 and feels a lot like the Gear S3 Frontier which was launched earlier this year. It features a rotating bezel which helps users interact with its UI just by rotating it and selecting an option via tap. The Gear Sport also has an Always On display feature which will show a watchface of user’s choice throughout the day. It comes with an internal storage of 4GB and runs on Tizen based OS. The 300mAh battery onboard will last for 2-3 days with moderate use of GPS, claims Samsung. Users will be able to charge the smartwatch with a wireless charger provided in-the-box. The Gear Sport smartwatch will be available in Blue and Black colour variants.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro

Unlike the Gear Sport, the Gear Fit2 Pro is a fitness tracker by Samsung. It features a 1.5-inch Super AMOLED display that has been curved to fit on the wrist. It feels as part of your wrist on wearing it because of this curved display. Users can interact with the watch via touch input and view fitness features like steps, swim, cycling, exercise tracking and changing watchfaces. Gear Fit2 Pro also doubles up as a display for showing map directions, activities and replying to text messages. The Gear Fit2 Pro comes in Black and Red colour variants. 

Price and availability

The Gear Sport smartwatch is priced at Rs 22,990 while the Gear Fit2 Pro will retail for Rs 13,590. Pre-orders for both the smartwatches begin from December 4 followed by general availability from December 11 on Flipkart, Amazon and Samsung India e-store.

Cyber Monday 2017 FAQ

What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is the biggest day for online deals of the year. It’s the Monday immediately after Thanksgiving, and the day when retailers shift their attention away from sales in-store and towards sales online.

When is Cyber Monday?
This year, Cyber Monday falls on November 27. Black Friday is on November 24, and that’s the day after Thanksgiving, which is on November 23. Some deals may start at specific times on the day.

Where are the best Cyber Monday deals?
Cyber Monday deals happen all over the web, but the best place to stay on top of them is, of course, right here on TechRadar. We’ll be updating this page with new deals as we find them, and we’ll tell you whether the discounts are really worth it or if you should keep looking.

How do I get the best Cyber Monday deals?
There are plenty of things to keep in mind when you’re shopping for new deals. For starters, it’s best to make a list of things you actually want so you can avoid falling into sales traps during the day and buying products that give you buyer’s remorse. It’s also a good idea to note beforehand how much you’re willing to spend as it’s easy to spend more than you otherwise might.

How do I stay safe while buying things on Cyber Monday?
We recommend always buying from companies that you know are legit. The likes of Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, Walmart, Target and other big names like these are your best bet for safety online, but even then it’s a good idea to look into things like return policies. 

Be very wary of phishing emails as these can be a big source of income for scammers during this busy shopping season. In fact, even if an email does appear legitimate we recommend going straight to the website offering the products rather than clicking on links in emails.

The best OnePlus 5T deals in India

The best OnePlus 5T deals in India

OnePlus 5 was one of the most awaited smartphones of the year, the flagship killer that would go up against the likes of Galaxy S8 and LG G6. At least that was the general consensus in the first half of the year. What has happened since then is nothing groundbreaking but the market sure has shifted towards better-looking smartphones that provide a new kind of user experience.

The OnePlus 5T is an upgrade by the company that shift their focus towards the growing needs of the market. In this case that happens to be a gorgeous, sturdy, powerful and dependable smartphone. Now, OnePlus might be on the receiving end of consumer backlash as it’s not even 6 months and they are out with a new smartphone, a successor. But we’ll leave that to the consumers to decide.

The 5T has a few new features, upgrades, if you will, to make the brand noticeable for the next six months. And while some of us may not be comfortable with a 6-month cycle, it exists just to make OnePlus take a stand for the next year.

As it was previously expected, the OnePlus 5T was launched in India starting from Rs 32,999. 

Here are some of the best offers on the OnePlus 5T

The smartphone is an Amazon India exclusive and is priced at Rs 32,999 for the 6GB/64GB variant and Rs 37,999 for the 8GB/128GB version. The OnePlus 5T is available in three colour variants – Midnight Black, Slate Gray and Soft Gold.

So, what are the reasons to buy the OnePlus 5T?

The OnePlus 5T is like an old wine in a new bottle, but a nice looking bottle. With its 6-inch minimal bezel display, the 5T looks more in line with the current trend. The fingerprint sensor has made its way on the back panel and there’s a face recognition feature with an improved front-facing camera.
