OnePlus explains how it plans to fight Face Unlock spoofing

OnePlus explains how it plans to fight Face Unlock spoofing

One of the new features of the OnePlus 5T is Face Unlock. Unlike other manufacturers, however, the company isn’t making such a big deal out of it, and for good reason. OnePlus itself doesn’t believe that face recognition technology is at a point of being 100% secure and is using Face Unlock only has a matter of convenience. Nonetheless, in order to assure owners of some amount of security, CEO Pete Lau explains some of the things they plan to implement to make Face Unlock harder to trick.

OnePlus 5T teardown is a mixed bag of surprises

OnePlus 5T teardown is a mixed bag of surprises

The OnePlus phones, from the very first One to the newest 5T, have always been tempting options. They always offer some of the best combination of hardware while keeping prices down to almost half of the competition. It is, of course, far from perfect and one of its still present flaws is the lack of waterproofing. The OnePlus 5T, sadly, doesn’t buck the trend. Or does it? As with many questions in life, the answer isn’t as straightforward as we’d like.

OnePlus 5T narrowly beats iPhone X in speed

OnePlus 5T narrowly beats iPhone X in speed

Apple has always been lauded for how it is able to squeeze out maximum performance from its hardware. And that has become even more evident when it started making its own A processors. Indeed, recent benchmarks have shown the Apple A11 processor to run circles around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. But benchmarks are one thing, real-world performance is another. And in one rare instance, when pit against the newly launched OnePlus 5T, an Android phone might have had the last laugh.

OnePlus 5T’s “T” could stand for “tough”

OnePlus 5T’s “T” could stand for “tough”

There are a couple of design trends going on in the smartphone market these days. One is the 18:9 screen aspect ration, the other is the switch back to glass backs. Ever the contrarian, upstart OnePlus is saying no, at least to one of those. With the OnePlus 5T, it has jumped on the 18:9 bandwagon, while still retaining the Full HD, FHD+ actually, resolution. It isn’t, however, joining the glass sandwich party just yet, which is probably for the best, as JerryRigEverything finds out.

OnePlus 5 will soon be discontinued

OnePlus 5 will soon be discontinued

OnePlus has done it again. It has brought out a flagship device at half the flagship price. And it has also ruffled the feathers or some of its own loyal fans. Although the gap between the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T is now just a wee bit longer than the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, so is the gap between features. And with the news of OnePlus unsurprisingly phasing out the OnePlus 5, buyers of the early 2017 flagship are naturally left wondering whether they have just waited a few more months after all.

Should I trust the OnePlus 5T?

As the OnePlus 5T is released worldwide, we've discussed the lifecycle of each OnePlus device - and the software updates therein.

OnePlus 3, 3T finally get their sweet Android Oreo snack

OnePlus 3, 3T finally get their sweet Android Oreo snack

The long wait for cookies is finally over. At least for owners of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. While the latest OnePlus 5 and 5T have yet to even see the shadow of a beta, the OEM has finally got the ball rolling on bringing the Android Oreo OTA to last year’s flagships. This ends a long string of OxygenOS betas and opens up time and resources to bring the same beta to the OnePlus 5 pair before the year ends.

OnePlus 3/3T get Android Oreo beta, OnePlus 5/5T end of the year

With the launch of the OnePlus 5T, you might think that OnePlus could call it a day and declare 2017 over, right? Absolutely not. While the hardware story for 2017 is definitely finished, the software story is far from done. Especially considering the OnePlus 5T didn’t even launch with Android 8.0 Oreo. But even before the latest and greatest could get its cookie treats, last year’s OnePlus 3 and 3T are first in line. Fortunately, the Oreo beta train is still running at full speed.

Even OnePlus knows the OnePlus 5T’s face unlock isn’t as secure as iPhone X

Even OnePlus knows the OnePlus 5T’s face unlock isn’t as secure as iPhone X

The OnePlus 5T was announced earlier today, and just like another certain flagship device, it'll have users unlocking their phones with facial recognition. This seems to be the direction the industry is headed, and so far, the iPhone X gives us our best example of the technology through Face ID. Though the OnePlus 5T also uses facial recognition as a marquee feature, it seems that its creators know that it won't be as accurate as it needs to be before it's the only option for verification.

OnePlus 5T vs 5: specs, pricing, release dates

This morning we saw the OnePlus 5T for the first time, and now we're comparing the device to its nearest predecessor. The OnePlus 5T is meant to be a half-step between this past generation and the next, with a T to signify the change. As OnePlus suggested onstage today, the letter "T" is in place because Apple uses an "S" for their half-step phones every other year.

OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition leaked

A tip was sent this morning on the appearance of a OnePlus 5T with a special edition on its name. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a month away at this point, and Lucasfilm hasn't been stingy with access to their licensing rights for products of all sorts. OnePlus has been known to release special limited edition versions of their smartphones, too - remember the Colette OnPlus 3T, and the midnight black edition 3T, and the OnePlus 5 JCC+ release earlier this year.
