The OnePlus 6T was among the most anticipated phones of 2018, thanks to a strong fan base and equally worthy predecessors.
The OnePlus 6T has the same processor and specs as the OnePlus 6 but came with minor improvements like the in-display fingerprint scanner.
A lot of work went into the software as well and this, in return, delivered a more stellar experience.
On the camera front, the hardware remains unchanged and consists of a 16-megapixel primary sensor along with a 20-megapixel secondary sensor.
The front has a 16-megapixel selfie shooter. On the software end though, OnePlus added Nightscape and Studio Lighting.
Here's how you can use the camera's to the fullest and get the possible shot every time!1. Trust Nightscape:
Nightscape is one of the big new features on the OnePlus 6T. In a nutshell, it lets you take better pictures in low-light surroundings without any manual inputs.
The feature is easily accessible from the camera app by swiping to Night Mode or turning on Automatic Scene Recognition. Once turned on, the system will take multiple shots of the same frame and merge them together, to create one stabilised picture.2. The Portrait Mode:

The dual camera setup is meant for THE best possible depth detection, and this feature comes in extremely handy when clicking portraits.
Thanks to Studio Lighting, a bokeh or blur effect is very accurate and lighting is well managed by the new addition.
The portrait mode has become a standard offering in all dual camera phones and with these little optimizations, the OnePlus 6T gets an edge.3. Two In One:

Up till now, you could either click a picture with bokeh effect or without it. You'd have to normally swipe between the two modes and this can often get annoying.
To make things easier, head into the camera options and select "Save normal photo", this way the phone will save two copies of the same shot, one with the bokeh effect, and one without.4. Shoot In Raw:
When pictures are captured in JPEG format, they tend to lose out a lot of detail thanks to compression and memory management.
Toggle the raw mode from camera options and the output will carry a lot more details about each pixel. This helps immensely when you need to edit the picture later using professional software like Photoshop or Lightroom.5. Slow & Steady:
The OnePlus 6T has optical image stabilization, meaning your videos will be a lot smoother and sudden jerks won't be a hassle. This also comes in handy when taking low-light shots since the exposure is high and shutter speed is low, hence even slight movement can spoil the picture.
You can also switch on the grid option that shows a line in the middle of the shot. When it turns green, you are shooting straight.
