OnePlus 3T Midnight Black: It's so black, you'll question the concept of black

Midnight isn’t necessarily black/dark everywhere, but in most places it is and therefore that is now a shade of black that sounds cool.

What is black? Why, it’s the lack of color! Something is only truly black when it absorbs so much light that what you actually look at is true darkness that is devoid of any light whatsoever. Therefore, the only thing that can truly be called black is a black hole, because everything else is just kind of black.

Smartphones can be black, and I’m happy to say that black is making a comeback in a big way. It’s fashionable once more to own a black phone, and some nifty marketing from market leaders such as Apple and Samsung have made buying black phones a fun thing once more (Jet black fingerprint smudge magnet, anyone?). And of course, the formula to successful marketing is adjectives, so that’s why OnePlus has introduced the limited edition ‘Midnight Black’ 3T, which is basically just a 128GB OnePlus 3T, but in a fun new color.

What definitely works for Midnight Black is its lack of gloss. The matte finish gives the phone a sophisticated look that never feels too gaudy, and the anti fingerprint coating also doesn’t let any grime stick to the surface of the phone. The antenna lines are grayed out to offer a bit of visual relief, and this actually does work in favor of the device. The only thing that really shines at the back is the mirror-finished OnePlus logo, and the entire package is pretty good looking to say the least.oneplus 3t midnight black bottom Also Read - OnePlus RT or 9RT: Which is the next OnePlus launching in India?

OnePlus has worked really hard to get the shade and finishing on the Midnight Black OnePlus 3T just right, and after such polarizing options as Sandstone and Soft Gold as color options, it seems that Midnight Black is the kind of color that can be universally loved. But is anything else different about the Midnight Black OnePlus 3T. The answer is a big, fat NO. Well, okay, the box is a matching shade of black, but who even cares about the box, apart from your annoying used phone dealer?oneplus 3t midnight black box 2

It’s a 128GB OnePlus 3T. And while that seems a bit anti-climactic, I assure you it isn’t. Because after all, a 128GB OnePlus 3T is just fine. It’s a great smartphone that checks all the boxes and offers you serious quality for a price that shames everything else that can match it for spec. Here is the best value-for-money flagship smartphone that you can buy right now, and you arguably cannot do better for the price.oneplus 3t midnight black comparison

Unfortunately, the OnePlus 3T Midnight Black edition is available in very limited quantities when it goes on sale today at 2pm on Amazon India. Which means that even if you want it, there’s a very good chance that you can’t have it, and in that case you have no choice but to accept that you aren’t deserving enough. But feel free to try your luck. Maybe you’ll get a hold of one, maybe you’ll have to settle for Gunmetal or Soft Gold (shudder/yuck/ew/meh). So I shall now take your leave to admire my Midnight Black OnePlus 3T review unit, which you (probably) can’t have.
