Save up to $160 on a Budget-Friendly OnePlus 10T 5G Phone at Amazon – CNET

If you’re looking for a new smartphone with 5G that won’t break the bank, the OnePlus 10T is an option worth considering. It’s the newest member in the 10 Series, the company’s flagship lineup. And it’s nearly half the price of many of its competitors, yet still offers features like a high-resolution camera and long-lasting battery. And right now, you can snag one for even less with Amazon offering serious discounts on unlocked models, dropping the price down to $490 for the 128GB model ($160 off) and $650 for the 256GB model ($100 off).

Amazon is also offering $50 off a pair of OnePlus Buds Pro 2 with this purchase, which drops the price down to $130. To get this discount, just add them to your cart with your OnePlus phone. There’s no set expiration on these offers, so we’d recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you don’t want to miss out on these savings. 

The OnePlus 10T features a 6.7-inch display with 394 ppi. It’s not as bright as competitors, or its sibling the OnePlus 10 Pro, but for basic everyday use it should be just fine. It runs on Android 12, and with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (or 16GB on the step-up 256GB model), it should be able to handle multitasking across apps and store all your photos and videos. 

In fact, the 10T has three rear cameras: a 50-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a 2-megapixel macro lens; as well as a 16-megapixel front-facing camera. It captures 4K video at 60 frames per second. 

And the phone doesn’t skimp at all on its battery. Just 20 minutes on its 125-watt fast charger can charge a dead phone up to 100%. That means you can stay on the go with minimal hassle when it comes to your battery life. 

This phone does compromise on certain things — for instance, it forgoes the alert slider, which was standard on previous OnePlus devices, but it does sport a powerful Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. If you need the most high-end features, it may be worth considering a different phone, but for $490, this phone definitely has a lot of power and is a deal worth checking out at this price.
