OnePlus 7 Review Rundown
OnePlus 7 is either a more affordable, less exciting OnePlus 7 Pro, or a souped-up OnePlus 6T. The notable difference between the two 7 models is that the standard OnePlus 7 doesn't have the cool pop-up camera. The OnePlus 7 can keep up with high-end devices when it comes to performance, but it is outdated with its dual-camera setup.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
At £549 in the UK (with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage, as reviewed), it sits below the £699-equivalent 7 Pro. You do lose some of the pizzazz of the Pro with that extra money you're saving, but the additional power makes it a better option over the older 6T. The OnePlus 7 is not currently available in either the US or Australia.
Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 is available now in the UK and starts at £499 for the model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Pro model hit the shelves on May 17 at T-Mobile, followed by the OnePlus 7 at an unspecified later date. The OnePlus 7 will not be available in the US, though the Pro version will hit the US at a price of $669.
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The smartphone is currently only available in one color variant; this one differs from its predecessor: It's called Mirror Gray. The entry level device's price increase of 10 Euros (~$11) is moderate compared to the predecessor. The OnePlus 7 includes a quite large fast-charging power adapter in the box.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 is an iterative update to 2018's OnePlus 6T. Internal components have got a slight bump to the latest silicon. But otherwise the 7 represents excellent value as a better 6T for the same price. The 7 Pro costs much more than we are used to from the company. But if you don't want your phone to be absolutely huge and have a mechanical pop-up camera then the OnePlus 7 will be a better phone for you than the 7 Pro.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 starts at £499 (around $640, AU$930) for the 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage model. The screen has a tall, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, providing more space for landscape gaming, and a better viewing experience for video. The fingerprint scanner on the OnePlus 7 is embedded into the display, and while it does work, it's not the fastest or most accurate in-screen scanner we've used. While you still get dual rear cameras, their values have changed.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 bridges the gap between last year's OnePlus 6T and this year's 7 Pro. Despite its slightly lesser standing compared to its bigger brother, the 7 is equipped just as well as any other top-tier flagship. Numbered phones have always been powered by the latest silicon from Qualcomm, and while the continuation of this trend was never in doubt for the top-end Pro, there was a chance that we could have seen the cheaper 7 ship with a mid-range CPU.
