OnePlus is putting the rest of the smartphone world on notice with the launch of its newest smartphone, the OnePlus 7 Pro. With a bigger bill of materials budget behind it, OnePlus has created the best Android phone on the market. The phone has a 90Hz display, a motorized pop-up camera, super-fast storage, and top-of-the-line specs.
Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
Starting at $670, the OnePlus 7 Pro is easily the most expensive OnePlus phone yet. It has a stunning display without any notches or cutouts, triple rear cameras, and a pop-up selfie cam. The phone adds a handy built-in screen recorder so you can natively save videos.
Reviewers from Anandtech have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the most awaited devices of the year. With the 7 Pro, the company is promising to deliver a significantly better “ultra-high-end” device than ever before. We investigate the device's outstanding performance, the new unique 90Hz 1440p OLED display, and OnePlus' take on a new triple-camera setup.
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 90Hz display with a crisp 1,440-pixel resolution. Because the front-facing camera sits on the top edge and the left and right sides of the display spill to the edges, the viewing experience feels more immersive. On its rear the phone has an ultra wide-angle camera, a standard camera and a telephoto.
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro starts at $670 for the mirror gray version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. The nebula blue or almond version also comes in 8GB/256GB at $700, and the top-of-the-range 12GB/ 256GB version is $750. At just $400, you get a relatively short jump to the very best phones on sale at the moment.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is a really big smartphone. Even if my hands are not the smallest and I have relatively long fingers, it is difficult to get into every corner of the smartphone's display in everyday life. A full 206 grams are already noticeable when you first pick it up, and the weight is especially an issue if you want to watch longer videos, play games or just read long emails.
Both devices run Android 9 Pie: Honor relies on its Magic UI, while OnePlus relies on the increasingly popular OxygenOS. Both Honor and OnePlus use high-end SoC, respectively the Kirin 980 and Snapdragon 855. Both smartphones also offer a 4000 mAh battery that they are able to manage thanks to an excellent optimization of the software.
OnePlus 7 Pro can be pre-ordered immediately, while delivery will take place on 21 May. With the OnePlus 7 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer finally has a product in its hand that can be seen on the red carpet. The hardware in combination with OxygenOS catapults the 7 Pro past Huawei's P30 Pro and Samsung's Galaxy S10+.
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The 7 Pro is the first smartphone to have a display that can constantly refresh at 90 Hz. Both devices have an in-screen fingerprint sensor and come with 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM, although the 7 Pro also has a 12 GB variant. The 7 Pro starts at £649/$669 and rises to £799/$749 for the 12 GB/256 GB model.
The 6.67-inch, 3,120-by-1,440 resolution screen is a Samsung OLED panel tuned to OnePlus's specifications. In its standard UI, the OnePlus 7 displays 1.5 frames for every one frame most other phones do. The phone's 48-megapixel camera has also appeared on Oppo and Vivo phones in China, but hasn't been seen here until the 7 Pro.
Sprint currently operates the most usable, meaningful 5G network in the US. While AT&T and Verizon struggle with thorny millimeter-wave technology, T-Mobile waits for phones that will support its low-band network. With its super-smooth 90Hz screen, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the smoothest-running Android phone out there.
The OnePlus 7 Pro offers flagship performance for much less than you'll pay for an Apple or Samsung phone. The front of the phone is dominated by a 6.67-inch curved AMOLED display with almost nonexistent bezels. Of all the Chinese phones we've tested, the in-display fingerprint sensor is the most consistent and easy to use.
Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
OnePlus is changing. The "never settle" company started as a bit of a phone nerd dream factory. For years, it focused on selling just one flagship-grade smartphone with a clean Android experience, and a price about half that of similarly powerful flagships from Samsung and Apple.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The 7 and 7 Pro phones mark the first time that OnePlus has released two phones at once. It's a full-blooded flagship, trying to prove once and for all that it can make phones to rival the likes of the Galaxy S10 or Huawei P30 Pro if it wants to. The 7 Pro is one of the latest proper full-screen phones to hit the west, in this case by shifting the selfie camera into a small slider that pops up when needed, and retracts just as quickly. We're keeping tabs on the best OnePlus 7 Pro (and standard 7) deals right here.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro is closer to delivering everything you want from a flagship phone than any previous handset. It's closer to Google Pixel 3 and Huawei P30 Pro quality, but not the best camera phone. A cheaper, less flashy OnePlus 7 will be sold eventually in the UK and Europe, while the OnePlus 6T will continue to be sold in the US. For those tempted to dip their toes into the brave new world of 5G, OnePlus also has you covered.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is only available in a few countries at the moment; the US, UK and Finland. The cheapest monthly cost is £64 (over two years) with a £50 upfront outlay. If you want the most data available, you're looking at £79 per month (plus £10 upfront) over two years for 120GB of data. The handset has a large 6.67-inch, QHD display, 256GB of storage and a whopping 12GB of RAM.
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro sports a unique full-screen design with a large 6.67-inch display. T-Mobile originally offeered the 8GB/256GB version of the 7 Pro for $699, though that phone is no longer available. You can still buy the entry level 6GB/128GB version for $669.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The OnePlus 7 Pro looks and feels unlike anything the company has produced thus far. While the standard OnePlus 7 bears more than a passing resemblance to last year's OnePlus 6T, the Pro model is a wholly different beast. The phone boasts enhanced versions of the company's Nightscape (version 2.0) scene mode and pixel-binning technology as a result of that huge 48-megapixel main sensor.
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
Priced between £649 and £799, depending on the finish, storage and RAM options. The 6.7in QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display will please those who want to watch an episode of their favourite TV show on the commute. We experience a familiar feeling of disappointment at the OnePlus's 7 Pro lack of 3.5mm headphone jack.
