From the above sample, its color is basically consistent with the actual scene at that time, the brightness is also very well controlled, even with double zoom, the building is still clear, the sky color is pure. On the other hand, the wide-angle mode can increase the shooting field of vision for the user, and it can stop the vast beauty without going back.


It is worth mentioning that in the daily shooting process, OnePlus 7T optical anti-shake to me a lot of help. Especially when I shoot with one hand, the optical anti-shake function greatly improves the film rate. The moment you press the shutter, even if there is a slight vibration in the hand, there will not be a picture of the phenomenon.


Another reason why OnePlus 7T camera are so popular is the Super Night scene. From the first generation of mobile phones, a continuous progress, no longer simply meet the excellent imaging results of the day, but focus on the field of night photography, deep ploughing technology to solve the pain point for users. Let's take a look at the imaging performance of OnePlus 7T at night.

In the light complex scene, OnePlus 7T performance is also very good, the light box board font has not been exposed, the dark detail processing is good, the font edge dazzling light control is ideal, the font is clearly visible and the edge is clear and sharp.

After turning on the super night scene mode, the overall brightness of the picture is improved, but the bright part of the screen is exposed at the same time to add more dark details, such as the plaque near the word more clearly visible.

With the help of the f/1.6 aperture lens, even if night view mode is not turned on, you can take a good picture with OnePlus 7T. After magnifying the sample, the texture on the surface of the building is still clearly visible, the details remain intact, and there is no obvious noise.


The most important test of the night scene is the control of noise and the purity of the picture. In these two aspects, OnePlus 7T can be shown in a circle. Compared with many mobile phones, OnePlus 7T does not blindly improve the brightness of the night scene, but to ensure the purity of the picture at the same time, increase the amount of light, suppress exposure, and detail retention and noise control are very good. In addition, OnePlus 7T should also have an ultra-wide-angle night view mode, which can make the photos clearer and full of picture tension.


In addition to the normal photo experience, this time, OnePlus 7T has not yet brought the macro shooting function, coupled with an exclusive custom super macro motor to achieve the super macro shooting function, so that the focus distance can be as close as 2.5cm.

In addition, it is worth mentioning that the way OnePlus 7T shoots video opens up a new possibility for mobile phone images. Users can switch freely between the main camera, long focus and ultra-wide angle at any time, and discover more surprises of the world from a new perspective. Looking for the most creative perspective.


On the whole, the camera performance of OnePlus 7T was a surprise, and the effect was satisfactory. Whether it is daylight or night, OnePlus 7T can handle the shooting well. The sufficient light input ensures the overall brightness of the photos. In a word, the photos shot in the day time performs well in color and details, while the noise control is also in place at night.

Today, users have higher and higher requirements for mobile phone cameras. They need to take pictures clearly during the day and return to the beauty of the original night at night. There is no doubt that OnePlus 7T has done so.
