From an exclusive brand to one of the largest names in the industry, OnePlus’ phones are out of this world. This is more than true for the OnePlus 7 Pro. We’ve run through everything you need to know about it and more, so what’s holding you back?
We know that this is a huge price difference. Don’t fret, as the warranty and onboard memory you get would influence its final price. Store warranties are much cheaper than company ones.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is a really heavy phone. The device is 206 g, so it’ll weigh your jeans down. Don’t get me wrong, the heft makes it feel pretty premium, but it’s not the easiest on your wrists.
The 7 Pro utilizes Gorilla Glass 5 on its front and back, which as we know, is pretty durable. Bordering it is the phone’s aluminum frame. The metal is soft and easy to grip.
The device is enormous. This is great as its back has enough space for its eye-catching effect to pop. To be honest, we can’t tell what OnePlus did to its back, but the phone has a stunning chrome-like shine.
It only comes in 3 colours. This shouldn’t be an issue as they’re unusual tones. They are Nebula blue, Mirror grey, and Almond.
The phone’s rear is pretty curved. You will see the glass towards the edge concave, making the phone easier to grip. It also makes the OnePlus 7 Pro look good. It cancels out how straining its heft can get, to an extent at least.
Although some users love tapered edges, we don’t. The 7 Pro’s edges will prick your palms; how fun does that sound?
There are 3 cameras on its rear, centered in the middle. No, there’s no fingerprint sensor on its back. It’s become the norm to have it on the screen, which the OnePlus 7 Pro does.
We have some bad news for you:
The phone doesn’t come with a headphone jack. There isn’t a microSD card slot either.
The phone’s screen is 6.67 inches. It’s all screen as it has an 88.1% screen to body ratio. There’s no notch in sight, and its bezels are nonexistent.
They’re calling the OnePlus 7 Pro’s display a ‘Fluid AMOLED’. This is as it has a 90 HZ refresh rate, making animations livelier.
So, if it doesn’t have a notch, where on earth is its front camera? It’s motorized and hidden away. With a click of a button, it emerges which is a pretty cool trick.
You get a screen resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels, so everything you see is highly detailed. The screen resolution is much better than the resolution on more expensive phones, like the S10.
Overall, colours pop and shadows are deep. This along with the immense detail, this allows you to get a superior viewing experience.
Let’s touch on its fingerprint sensor, pun intended. Know that it’s pretty fast. It certainly beats the OnePlus 6T’s.
The 7 Pro has an adequate sized battery. It’s 4000 mAh and can last about half a day with very heavy use. Of course, we were disappointed, but its screen is powerful, so drainage was expected.
It comes with a fast charge. If it didn’t, we’d be worried. You get a 30 W Warp charger that gets the device from 0-50% in 20 minutes. At least, that’s what OnePlus says. In reality, the phone takes around half an hour to reach 30%.
The 7 Pro is pretty expensive. That’s why wireless charging would’ve been a nice touch. Unfortunately, the phone doesn’t come with the feature.
As its back is sealed up, don’t expect a removable battery.
Out of the box, the phone comes with Android 9. It won’t be getting the Android 10 update which is a shame. However, something you should be excited about is its processor. The 7 Pro comes with the Snapdragon 855 chip which makes it run like a dream. Then again, the 7 Pro isn’t the most budget-friendly, so this was expected.
As mentioned, it doesn’t come with expandable storage. This is disappointing, but the phone has some major storage space. There are two memory variants, which are 128 and 256 GBs. The amount of RAM the OnePlus 7 Pro comes with is out of this world, 12 gigs.
Not all OnePlus 7 Pros come with 12 GBs of RAM. Some variants come with 6 or 8 gigs which contribute to the phone’s snappiness.
As expected from a powerful chipset, the phone’s Adreno 640 GPU makes stuttering nonexistent.
Since the OnePlus 5 was released, almost all the OnePlus’ flagships have come with similar cameras. This isn’t a bad thing, but the brand takes an ‘if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it’ approach. OnePlus decided to shake things up with the OnePlus 7 Pro and has an ultra-wide and telephoto lens, coming with OIS. You can take superior shots in low light as the phone has an f/1.6 aperture lens.
You’re probably wondering what its camera specs are. The phone has a 48 MP primary sensor, an 8 MP secondary sensor and a 16 MP tertiary one.
Selfie camera-wise, the phone comes with the same hardware as the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 6T.
Without a doubt, the Oneplus 7 Pro is a phone that’s worth its hefty price tag. If you’re on the verge of purchasing it, going through some of its best alternatives is a smart move. We’ve run through them below.
The 7T comes with gorilla glass on its front and back. If you remember, the same thing was on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Surprise, the 7T also comes with an aluminium frame.
Compared to the 7 Pro, the 7T is light at 190 grams.
The same ‘Fluid AMOLED’ display we were fans of is on the phone. However, it would’ve been shocking if the 7T didn’t come with it.
The phone’s barely smaller than the 7 Pro, at 6.5 inches. If you’re a fan of phablets, the 7T will be right up your alley.
Out of the box, it comes with Android 10, so you don’t have to worry about an update.
It comes with the same CPU as its counterpart. So, it’s a beast. It also comes with 128 and 256 GBs of storage, but only 8 gigs of RAM. We’re not too mad as 8 is good enough to be snappy.
In terms of battery, the 7T isn’t as good as the Pro. After all, it has a smaller battery at 3800 mAh. The same 30 W Warp charger is present, which we think doesn’t do that much as it’s a glorified fast charger.
Unfortunately, the motorized selfie cam we love isn’t in the 7T. Before, you get too disappointed, know that their front cameras have the same specs. And although they both have a triple camera set up on the rear, the 7T performs better as it has a 12 MP telephoto lens, while the 7 Pro has an 8MP one.
We just have to mention how different they look. The 7T has a huge, circular camera on its back. Its camera set up just screams Nokia Lumia, and we don’t know how to feel about it.
The phone’s also on the larger side, at 6.4 inches. The device is heavy too. However, it’s a feather in comparison as it’s 175 g. There’s a version of the S10+ that’s made from ceramic, if you get your hands on it, it’ll be heavier at 195 grams.
The S10+ has Gorilla Glass 6 on its front, with the 5 on its back. Gorilla Glass 6 can seriously take a beating, so you’re in good hands. If you didn’t guess it yet, the Ceramic version doesn’t come with a glass back, but a ceramic one.
What sounds better? A Dynamic or a Fluid AMOLED display? We think a Dynamic screen sounds better, and it is. The one on the S10+ brings out the deepest black and the brightest white. Let’s not forget that its screen resolution is 1440 x 3040 pixels, with a PPI of 522.
Although it comes with Android 9 out of the box, it can be updated to Android 10. This wasn’t a surprise as the phone’s a flagship.
The Snapdragon 855 chip is seen in the S10+, at this point, you should know that we’re total fans.
Once you hear about the phone’s storage, your jaw will drop. Yes, it comes with a 128 and 512 GBs of space which is impressive, but the S10+ also has a 1 TB variant.
In terms of RAM, the 128 and 512 variants come with 8 gigs of RAM, while the 1 TB comes with 12. This makes the latter as powerful as a small computer.
The S10+ has triple cameras on its rear, and so does the 7 Pro, but the One Plus device takes the cake. However, the S10+ comes with a better selfie cam as there are dual, wide-angle sensors.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is expensive. However, it’s a device that’s worth your cash. It comes with the Snapdragon 855 processor, which as we know, gives an amazing performance. The phone comes with some great RAM and storage capacities too.
It’s an enormous device with a screen that is detailed and high definition, so you’ll get a spectacular viewing experience. As it’s big and quite hefty, it’ll be tough to hold. This is especially true as the phone has pointed edges.
Its cameras are good, and let’s not forget how cool its motorized front camera is. Although this is common, getting its selfie camera to pop up will turn heads.
In terms of its battery, we’re a bit iffy about it. It will be sucked dry by the phone’s powerful screen.
Certainly, the OnePlus 7 Pro is an amazing device, but phones like the S10+ are around too, which are the same price and perform better.
