2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Exquisite design and materials, in-line with the price of the phone - the iPhone X is a piece of desire
  • And of course, there is no home button, just a stunning 5.8-inch screen that hugs the edge, reaching for the silver band that’s just millimeters away - the iPhone X is a looker
  • The steel construction is of a gorgeous surgical steel, up to the highest standards of industrial design
  • Measured diagonally, the iPhone X screen is the largest on any iPhone ever made, yet the device fits comfortably in your hand - thanks to the bezel-less display
  • The back of the iPhone X is protected by ultra-hard glass (the same Corning custom blend that backs the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus) with a smudge-resistant oleophobic coating on the outside - touching the smooth glass exterior and looking at the steel-and-copper-plate frame underneath, the iPhone X feels like a beautiful contradiction
  • The display itself is simply gorgeous - in addition to being Apple’s first OLED display on a phone — the 5.8-inch screen is the highest-resolution smartphone display Apple has ever made - the 2436 x 1125 resolution screen has a whopping 458 pixels per inch - the iPhone X display also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range), which means you see a greater contrast range and more colors than on non-HDR screens - this is simply the best iPhone display ever - you have never seen such bright, touchable colors or inky blacks on an iPhone handset, nor have you ever seen an iPhone screen hug the virtually bezel-less edge and corners of a device the way the iPhone X does
  • One of the first results of that is a highly effective iPhone X unlocking routine, based on FaceID - unlike pressing and holding the home button, accessing the iPhone X feels like a single gesture - it is also super accurate and extremely difficult to fool
  • The other function of the home button - to get you to the iPhone home screen - is replaced by system-wide intuitive gestures - they will take a couple of days to get used to - but once you do, they are pretty seamless
  • Apple Pay and Siri also now live under the now substantially longer sleep/lock button - it takes a double press to access Apple Pay - pressing and holding down the side button activates Siri
  • The Apple iPhone X runs the exact same CPU as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus - the A11 Bionic chip is super powerful and impressive with killer benchmark scores and significant, built-in AI power - expectedly, it runs silky smooth, and responsive, whatever you throw at it
  • Like the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X has a dual-camera system (one wide-angle lens and one 2x telephoto) on the rear camera (though it is interestingly turned 90 degrees to align with the long edge of the device, adding to the iPhone X's distinctive looks)
  • Among the current top crop of flagship phones - the Galaxy Note 8, the Pixel 2, and the iPhone X - it's a close contest for the best camera, but they are all really really good
  • Video recording performance is top-notch too, with excellent stabilisation
  • Low-light photography is excellent too - and again comparable to other top cameras like the Galaxy Note 8
  • On the whole, the camera performance is a little bit better than the already amazing iPhone 8 Plus camera, especially in low light - and comparable even to professional stand-alone cameras
  • The front camera takes things up another notch with "TrueDepth" - the same technology that helps with FaceID - unlocking some fascinating and often entertaining use cases
  • Firstly, the 7-megapixel camera is now a Selfie Portrait Mode camera - relying on TrueDepth to create the bokeh effect, even with a single front camera - given the right light, the results are truly impressive
  • The TrueDepth camera is also responsible for animojis - another of Apple's innovations - adorable animated heads that can move in sync with your mouth, head and facial expressions - Animojis tracked virtually every head turn, nod, wink, smile, eyebrow raise, and furrowed brow - and integrate seamlessly with iMessage
  • The TrueDepth camera will also take third-party apps to new places - Snapchat for instance is already developing new 3D skins that take advantage of the TrueDepth camera
  • Very good call quality
  • Best in class speakers
  • Very good battery life - comparable to the excellent iPhone 8 Plus - should comfortably last the day even with heavy use
  • Also supports wireless charging and works with any Qi-compatible charging base
  • Fast charging is supported too
  • On the whole, while there are similarities between the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus, but the way the iPhone X looks, feels and, most importantly, works, puts it on a different plane
  • The iPhone X changes everything - and takes you on a trip that is as refreshing as perhaps the very first iPhone was
  • All considered, this is right now the best smartphone (a lot of) money can buy - and if you find yourself on your phone more than you do on your computer, constantly staring down at it, then it might make sense to get the best one out there
  • You can of course opt for the significantly cheaper iPhone 8/Plus, but you'll lose the design and the screen on the iPhone X, which make for an experience in themselves
  • While, mostly, new phones are iterative upgrades to last year’s model, this, the iPhone X, feels like the future - this is the closest to smartphone perfection Apple has ever got
  • Absolutely top-notch build and design
  • The immersive, 'all screen' razor-sharp display on the front (notch-less) makes for an absolutely gorgeous looking phone
  • Super fast in-display fingerprint reader (comparable in unlocking speed to standard physical fingerprint readers)
  • Incredible, silky smooth, 'all screen' AMOLED display - with a unique 90Hz screen refresh rate that makes games and movie-watching look more fluid - even things like scrolling through webpages and apps feels really fluid (if you place a standard 60Hz phone side-by-side, you will feel the difference)
  • In fact the 90Hz display pushes the fluidity and speed of the feel of OxygenOS to a whole new level - in practical terms, seeing animations and scrolling at fluid 90FPS does more to make a phone feel performant than any benchmark score - OnePlus has hit the ball out of the park with this one
  • Crisp, high-res screen
  • Overall, this is arguably the best display on any smartphone, at present
  • OxygenOS continues to be one of the most thoughtfully-designed, clean (stock-like) UIs for Android
  • 2 new features that make it to the latest version of OxygenOS are screen recording, and Zen Mode (for exercising more control over your screen time)
  • With the super fast flagship Snapdragon 855, some ultra fast storage speed (UFS3), and the 90Hz screen, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a speed monster, and simply the fastest (and the fastest-feeling) Android phone to date
  • Good, versatile, triple rear camera setup - there is an ultra wide-angle camera, a standard camera and a telephoto camera
  • The phone's 3X telephoto zoom combined with a 10x digital zoom means the phone could zoom in on faraway objects while maintaining clarity and stability
  • With the wide-angle camera, you can fit way more content in each frame - though shots taken on the wide-angle camera appeared muddier near the edges
  • Overall, the photos are generally clear, bright and vibrant with some good HDR rendering
  • Portrait shots are pretty good too
  • The selfie camera is a neat pop-up camera - the mechanism works smoothly and quickly - and the camera takes some good pictures, including portraits
  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos
  • Decent battery life with a 4000mAH battery - you will get a comfortable one day of use
  • Super fast charging speeds - Warp Charge juices up a fully drained OnePlus 7 Pro up to 42% in only 15 minutes - and goes up to 91% in one hour
  • Overall, if you are not insistent on having the absolute best camera phone, the OnePlus 7 Pro is an incredible value, all-round great, flagship phone, which looks beautiful, runs blazing fast, has clean software, and is a multimedia beast with that amazing silky smooth AMOLED screen, and great stereo speakers
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The metal rim can scuff without a case
  • With the new home-button-less interface, you will need to learn a new gesture based approach to navigation (although, in fairness, it is pretty intuitive, and shouldn't take more than a couple of days to learn)
  • Fast charging is supported but you will need to buy new accessories for that
  • On the heavy and large side - and a bit too big to use comfortably with one hand
  • No IP-certified water resistance, that's available on some of it's competitors like the Galaxy 10e
  • Having said that though, the camera setup on the OnePlus 7 Pro, while an improvement on the OnePlus 6T, is still not quite as good as the best cameras out there - the Huawei P30 Pro, the iPhone XR/XS, the Pixel 3/3a, and the Galaxy S10 series - especially in terms of low light performance
  • No standard headphone jack - you will need to use either USB-C or wireless headphones (none of which is included in the retail package)
  • While the battery life is decent, the main competition - the Galaxy S10e, and iPhone XR - is significantly ahead here - in fact the OnePlus 7 Pro also falls a bit behind the OnePlus 6T, because of the larger, higher resolution screen and the high refresh rate
  • No wireless charging support
  • If on the other hand, you are looking for the best-in-class cameras or more compact phones, you can consider the likes of the Pixel 3a, or Galaxy 10e
