From 0 to 100 in just 21 minutes: OnePlus 10T 5G in the test

According to OnePlus, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen.1 calls for a new, better cooling system. In any case, the performance is fantastic: The 10T only needs 1.9 seconds to load our large, extensive test PDF. The graphics test confirms the excellent gaming performance with a strong 109 frames per second. This puts the OnePlus 10T 5G with its 16 GB of RAM at the same performance level as the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro gaming smartphone. For more benchmark results, please see our leaderboard.

In our demanding battery online runtime test, the OnePlus 10T 5G lasted for 12 hours and 3 minutes – a strong value. We set the display to 200 candelas per square meter, which is suitable for indoor use, and let a script continuously browse the web and play videos.

For us, the clear highlight of the OnePlus 10T is the sensational charging time of just 21 minutes to completely fill up the battery. The built-in charging unit charges the 4,800 mAh battery with up to 156 watts at its peak. A 160 watt fast charging power supply is included in the scope of delivery. Incidentally, the gaming smartphone GT Neo 3 from sister brand Realme loads just as quickly.

From a physical point of view, such a charging time is no fun for the individual lithium cells. The battery could therefore have a slightly shorter lifespan compared to the competition. However, OnePlus still assumes a battery capacity of 80 percent after 1,600 charging cycles, which corresponds to about four years. This is made possible by a “smart” algorithm that keeps an eye on the current maximum charging capacity of the individual cells. In the event of an impending overload, the system then regulates the charging power down. In addition, a kind of “self-healing” should reduce the damage to the anode and cathode.

If you don’t want to trust these marketing promises, you can also create an individual charging plan in the corresponding settings menu – or simply switch off the fast charging function completely. Wireless charging is not possible with the OnePlus 10T 5G.
