Should you upgrade?
If you are looking to upgrade from OnePlus 6T or even OnePlus 6 then OnePlus 7 isn't a big leap and it doesn't offer anything new. Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 of OnePlus 7 is definitely a better processor than the Snapdragon 845 chipset of OnePlus 6T but the S-845 will still give you a smooth performance. However, if you are looking to buy a new premium phone then OnePlus 7 Pro is worth every penny.
