The OnePlus 7 Pro is a great phone. In his review, Ryne went so far as to call it "the best smartphone you can buy". It's so good that we've had trouble limiting this list to just five of the best features. Although it is OnePlus's most feature-rich device so far, had to make some concessions to achieve a distinctive "flagship killer" award. After careful consideration, here are the five best and worst aspects of the OnePlus 7 Pro.
If anything indicates that OnePlus is serious about the status of the 7 Pro as a flagship, it is this ad. It's a huge 1440p, 90-hertz AMOLED panel with tiny bezels on all sides and which, thanks to the flip-up design for the front-facing camera, will not interrupt. The screens in Samsung's cell phones were the benchmark for outstanding hot screen quality for a hot minute, but this one will give any Galaxy a serious win.
Considering what the 7 Pro has to offer – the crazy display, the overkill specifications, the solid workmanship – no-one would mind if the thing started at about $ 900 , But the OnePlus overall price surpasses the price weight, and the company has noted here: You can buy a OnePlus 7 Pro for only $ 669. The Samsung Galaxy S10 + has several features that the 7 Pro does not offer – but are they worth an extra $ 300?
OnePlus continues to supply software with the Oxygen operating system, which is designed for Android. The adjustments made here are minimal and inconspicuous, including the ability to customize the colors of the user interface to your liking, scroll screenshots, and an on-screen recorder. There's also an interesting feature called Zen Mode that temporarily disables all but the phone's most basic features: You can make, receive and take pictures, but that's it. It's a small gimmick, but if you're having trouble getting away from your device, and you've determined that more standard screen time-out measures are ineffective, this might justifiably be helpful to you Change behavior.  Warp Charge
Warp Charge used to be the proprietary OnePlus wired charging protocol (until Amazon disputed the use of the word dash ). It's crazy. By moving the heat-generating electronics from the inside of the phone to the charging stone, OnePlus has developed a system that can charge the 7 Pro with up to 30 watts. If you have half an hour to recharge, you can probably pack enough juice to last a full day: 30 minutes with Warp Charge will bring the 7 Pro in half.
The optical fingerprint sensor of the OnePlus 6T under the display was small, sluggish and just not very good. The 7 Pro solves this shortcoming with a sensor that covers significantly more display area and reads your tiny thumb grooves with a pleasant accuracy and sharpness. It also surpasses the ultrasonic sensor found under the Samsung Galaxy S10's display (though this is not a very tall bar).
You've seen the photos and read the descriptions and it's completely true: the OnePlus 7 Pro is absolutely Titanic. It's probably bigger than the biggest phone you've ever used, with a 6.67-inch screen and a weight of almost half a pound. Given the lack of UI-like optimizations to improve reachability, you need to do serious finger acrobatics to get all the elements of the UI.
The size preference is of course subjective. You may prefer a tablet that also makes calls. Since OnePlus (my kingdom for a 5-inch OnePlus 7 Mini!) Does not offer a much smaller option, the size of the 7 Pro is rightly a deterrent to many potential buyers.
Non-functioning glass bottom
The glass-on-glass construction is one of the more polarizing smartphone design trends when traveling. A beautiful glass bottom can give a device a very high quality look, and it's one of the things that makes the OnePlus 7 Pro feel so good in the hand. Despite the fact that glass meets trends, it's a known fragile material, and the 7 Pro is the third consecutive mobile phone that OnePlus uses for aesthetic reasons only. For no practical reason to use glass here, it would have been nice to see a sophisticated aluminum or even polycarbonate design.
No Wireless Charging
This goes hand in hand with the Nothing-Do-Glass of the 7 Pro: Why can not I put this thing on a Qi Pad to replenish it? Warp Charge is almost unbelievably good, and if I had to decide between the two, I would probably keep the incredibly fast wired store. However, the lack of wireless charging is not due to technical limitations – it's just one of the corners that OnePlus lowers to keep costs down. Not everyone is sold for wireless charging, and many people probably do not mind not having it, but every other premium phone offers it, and I've been expecting it from a flagship device.
No headphones jack
People like headphone outlets. Phones should have them. The 3.5-millimeter jack is increasingly being positioned as a budget feature (the reason being that you probably already have or can afford Bluetooth headset when you buy a stylish phone, I think?), And the 6T did too none, so his absence in the 7 Pro is not surprising. Nevertheless, it is a disappointment. OnePlus adds salt to the wound and does not include a USB C to 3.5mm dongle in the box. That's just cheap.
This is not a phone you should buy for the cameras. As you'd expect, the OnePlus 7 Pro cameras are the best in OnePlus phones – the primary sensor has a whopping 48 megapixels, and again, there are wide-angle and telephoto lenses. Nevertheless, OnePlus can not compete with the capabilities of larger players like Samsung, Huawei, Apple or Google.
Shooting with the 7 Pro is often overexposed and washed out, even when the HDR mode is activated. aggressive ISO can make photos grainy; and Shooting in Low Light OnePlus shots are sometimes out of focus due to too long shutter speeds. These are by no means bad cameras – but the mobile photography has progressed far enough that is well at stake, and the 399-pixel 3 model's camera almost defies the $ 669 7 professionals every scenario.
