During the launch of OnePlus 7 Pro in May, I was really impressed by the new upgrades. The OnePlus 7 Pro surprises me a lot, featuring a novel pop-up selfie camera.
Even though it doesn’t provide the best picture quality, I am certain that it is a beast in the making, because this smartphone provides features that you can’t find in Apple and Samsung smartphones.
OnePlus 7 Pro is not a budget-friendly phone, as it costs almost as much as a Samsung S10e and an iPhone XR.
OnePlus 7 Pro: Design
From its screen to feel, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the most striking phone the company has produced. The aluminum design, gradient color, glass body, and a matte finish are the reasons why I am in love with the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The screen of the OnePlus 7 Pro has no bezel or notches. That’s definitely a plus in my book, including the fact that it has 3 cameras at its back.
The display of the OnePlus 7 Pro is impressive because it uses a 3120 x 1440 Full HD resolution. Its HDR10 and HDR+ compatibility make its users have a smooth and exquisite viewing and gaming experience.
Other users may love this new camera that pops out, but I don’t. I feel the camera may get damaged easily, but it’s a unique and cool feature for OnePlus 7 Pro.
The novel pop-up selfie camera uses a motorized system which automatically retracts the camera back inside to keep it safe in case of a fall. That’s a pretty cool function because the camera is designed to be durable.
OnePlus 7 Pro is the first smartphone which has UFS 3.0 flash storage. It’s pretty awesome! More surprisingly, to ensure that your Apps work faster, OnePlus 7 Pro uses a 90Hz display so the screen refreshes 90 times per second for unprecedented viewing experience. Obviously, this is an awe-inspiring and top-notch feature.
Its fingerprint sensor is in-display, and it is extremely fast and accurate. OnePlus 7 Pro also features Face ID that facilitates the phone owner.
OnePlus 7 Pro: OS and Specs
OnePlus 7 Pro runs the Oxygen OS 9.5, but it runs Android 9 OS when it is unboxed. The Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is a 7nm processor which ensures short loading time, fast file transfer and smooth multitasking experience.
It is the best phone that enhances your gaming experience, because, during gaming, you can turn on “Do Not Disturb” (DND). I find this feature is amazing, thanks to it, I am truly able to be more focused.
When you use it to play any game, you will have an incredible gaming experience with no lags and amazing graphics even at the highest settings.
I use the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and I am satisfied with the functionality and speed. OnePlus 7 Pro provides three different options, including 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, 8GB RAM with 256GB storage, 12GB RAM with 512GB storage. You can get any variant freely.
OnePlus 7 Pro: Camera and Battery Life
The camera of OnePlus 7 Pro makes it one of the most sought-after smartphones. I love the fact that it has a triple rear camera setup with a 48MP high-end sensor. Each photo I took with the 48MP sensor looks impeccable, all details are clear even when zoomed multiple times. I love the way it automatically focuses on the object and makes it stand out.
The 8MP camera is perfect for taking portrait photos because it has a 3x optical zoom which enables you to take clear photos of objects far away. The last rear camera is a 16MP camera with an ultra-wide-angle sensor which can capture any object that is wide apart, so long as they are within the same field of view.
My favorite, the front selfie camera is a pop-up 16MP camera. The images taken by this camera is high-definition and perfect. However, I’m afraid that it might be damaged easily because of the avant-guard mechanism.
As a heavy user, I am impressed with the OnePlus 7 Pro battery life. It uses a 4,000 mAh Li-Ion battery which can last up to 20 hours for the regular use and 7 hours for the heavy use.
It is partly because the higher-resolution display and faster refresh rate make the battery life to drain out fast. Luckily, users can lower the resolution and refresh rate to have better battery life.
Like any other OnePlus product, the 7 Pro features Zen mode which limits the time I spend on the phone. It also has other additional features like a screenshot editor and a screen recorder.
If you plan to buy OnePlus 7 Pro, get a case for it. A phone case is necessary because the phone is slippery and sometimes difficult to hold.
Don't make any compromise! OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the best smartphones that you can get so far. Choose among the gorgeous colors, i.e., Nebula Blue, Mirror Gray, and Almond, and get started!
