Why the OnePlus 5T Star Wars limited edition is the one you should get

OnePlus recently came out with a Star Wars limited edition of their OnePlus 5T . The launch event took place in India and the phone received excellent initial impressions.

It features a bevy of new features like-

  1. The limited edition comes in a huge Star Wars themed box which is a nice collectible for die hard fans.
  2. It also comes with a Kylo Ren themed case, another exclusive collectible for die hard fans.
  3. The phone itself has a red accented Mute Slider which looks sharp on the white body of the phone.
  4. There are a couple of easter eggs along with the phone which while nothing groundbreaking, are a nice touch to the limited edition experience.

But the number one reason that you should get this phone along with these features is the Sandstone back. The white Sandstone back feels almost exactly similar to the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2’s sandstone backs. This makes the phone extremely grippy unlike metal and glass phones which are slippery and fragile. Carrying this phone without a case is very confidence inspiring as it feels extremely rugged and rough in the hand.

Another advantage of the Sandstone back is that you don’t have to worry about the body of the phone catching scuffs or scratches or even cracking, all worries that come with buying metal or glass phones. After a year of fragile metal and glass flagships, the grippy Sandstone textured body of the OnePlus 5T is a refreshing relief from the mundane trend.

Of course the internals of the limited edition are exactly the same as that of the regular 128GB+8GB OnePlus 5T. This means you get blazing fast performance, pretty much the fastest you can get on any android smartphone and a well rounded package.

So what do you think about the Star Wars 5T? Do you like it? Or do you think the regular one looks better? Let us know in the comments section below.
