Oneplus 5T has the new 18:9 Screen Aspect Ratio. It looks beautiful and also Ditched the Home Button altogether replacing the Software Buttons. The Fingerprint sensor is now on the Rear. The screen Navigation is getting boring at least for me. Also now the Oneplus 5T is little more massive than the Previous Oneplus 5. It is about 162 Grams now. The Oneplus 5T is available in color Midnight Black like the iPhones and Looks cool.
Oneplus 5T Camera:
Oneplus Removed the Telephoto Lens and Instead Increased the Aperture of Camera Sensor.

They replaced it with a New Low Light 20-megapixel Sony IMX376K Camera Sensor. This New Lens is best for Ideal Low Light Conditions and Gives a Better Smartphone Camera from the Competition.

But this Pumps the same amount from 1% to 75% in no time.

Oneplus to compete with Apple iPhones, they released their version of Face Unlock Feature for the new Oneplus 5T. This is not available for the Oneplus 5, even though Oneplus 5 also Sports the very similar hardware. There is no Special Face Unlock Hardware in here, and that means this is not gonna be like iPhone X where you can make payments even with third party Apps.
Also, Face Unlock on Oneplus 5T has its Shortcomings like you need the phone to be awake to scan your face. It is Gonna end up more like a Gimmick until a Developer steps in and Supports it on Applications and Payments.
