2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Immaculate fit and finish, and a pleasing, premium design - very similar to the OnePlus 6T
  • Pretty good ergonomics (similar to the OnePlus 6T, and better than the heavier/larger OnePlus 7 Pro)
  • The in-display fingerprint reader is very good - and even a bit faster than the already good one on the OnePlus 6T
  • Big, beautiful 'dewdrop' notch AMOLED display, again quite similar to the OnePlus 6T
  • OnePlus’ Reading mode is still there and is as useful as ever - it turns the screen to a reading-optimized monochrome, and it can be assigned to activate when you’re in certain apps
  • 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), the OnePlus 7 is a speed beast, and matches other top-end flagships
  • Good dual rear camera setup - there a primary 48MP camera and a secondary 5MP depth sensor
  • Overall image quality is good - it takes great outdoor shots, with vibrant colours and good exposure - and is a decent improvement over the OnePlus 6T (though not as good, or as versatile as the camera setup on the OnePlus 7)
  • It also has the new Nightscape mode, which lets you capture reasonably bright and sharp images even in very low light situations
  • Good 16MP front camera too
  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos
  • Good battery life with a 3700mAH battery - the OnePlus 7 will make it through a day of intensive use without a problem - and will give you battery life similar to the OnePlus 6T (and more than the OnePlus 7 Pro, which lasts less long because of the more battery intensive 90Hz screen)
  • OnePlus's Dash Charging continues to be one of the better fast charging technologies around - it goes from 10 to 100 percent in just 1 hour and 15 minutes - though it's a step below the Warp Charge tech on the OnePlus 7 Pro
  • Overall, OnePlus 7 retains the spot of the all-rounder, reliable, no-frills, budget flagship from OnePlus (while the OnePlus 7 Pro takes the more 'premium' flagship approach), giving you a high-end flagship experience for relatively less - and it makes for a decent update to the OnePlus 6T in the performance and camera departments
  • 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]
  • Still not fully waterproof (there is some water resistance but it's not IP certified)
  • Like all glossy finish phones (which is an increasing majority of phones these days), the glass back of the phone is a fingerprint magnet
  • It's not quite a match for the new budget-flagship camera champion, the Pixel 3a, however, which is ahead by a significant margin
  • No standard headphone jack - you will need to use either USB-C or wireless headphones (none of which is included in the retail package)
  • No wireless charging support
  • That said though, the budget flagship segment is much more competitive now (unlike when the 6T launched), so you will have some pretty good alternatives as well, not the least of which is the Pixel 3a/XL, which while not as beautiful looking, or as fast, will provide with a much better camera experience, a more compact design, and a headphone jack
  • 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
