The majority of modern smartphones have 120Hz displays, which look wonderful but can significantly reduce battery life. As a result, an LTPO display has made Adaptive Refresh Rate a feature that many flagships have started using recently.
Since the OnePlus 10T does not have an LTPO display like the OnePlus 10 Pro, the question now is whether or not its display is adaptable.
Yes, it is adaptive, is the response. But there are some restrictions.
Advertisement It is adaptable, but not as much as other phones. The OnePlus 10T cannot drop to 1Hz or 10Hz and ramp up from there since OnePlus is not employing an LTPO display. which would be fantastic for the 10T’s always-on display. Instead, it will increase and decrease gradually from 60Hz to 90Hz and 120Hz.
That’s fine, however switching from 10Hz to 120Hz would be preferable in this case. Given that it has a lesser battery than the OnePlus 10 Pro, especially in terms of battery life.
The settings allow you to change the frequency to 90Hz, which is what we advise for battery longevity. That’s excellent to see, then. While giving you a faster refresh rate, it has less of an impact on the battery than 120Hz would. However, as we noted in our review, the battery is fairly good. Additionally, it charges up quickly. Since it can charge at up to 125W in the US, OnePlus claims it can charge from 1% to 100% in just 20 minutes (150W elsewhere).

Additionally, this makes OnePlus’ goal of becoming somewhat more competitive with the 10T possible. The OnePlus 10T costs $649, while the OnePlus 10 Pro, which was formerly $899, is now permanently reduced to $799.
