2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Gorgeous, premium design - the OnePlus 8 Pro uses a familiar soft-touch glass back and an aluminium frame - the OnePlus 8 Pro shares the same core design ethos as the OnePlus 7 Pro
  • On the front is a beautiful edge-to-edge display and a hole-punch selfie camera
  • OnePlus’s handy alert slider is still here, which enables you to quickly switch between silent, vibrate and sound-on modes
  • With a rating of IP68, the OnePlus 8 Pro is protected against total dust ingress, and submersion in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes
  • The in-display fingerprint reader is quite accurate and works quickly
  • A gorgeous 6.78-inch, QHD+ screen, with excellent viewing angles and what looks like spot-on colour reproduction - the display offers an industry-leading 1300 nits peak brightness
  • OnePlus has bumped up the refresh rate to 120 Hz which results in smooth scrolling in apps, and better graphical fluidity in games, overall providing a more premium experience - you can even use the 120 Hz at QHD+ resolution, unlike it's Samsung counterpart
  • When it comes to video playback, content can be enhanced further with two additional settings - 'Vibrant color effect pro' optimises the colours and contrast in videos to provide a more vibrant picture - 'Motion graphics smoothing' increases the frame rate of the video for clearer and more smooth playback
  • Overall, the OnePlus 8 Pro display is one of the best on a smartphone, at present
  • OxygenOS continues to be one of the most thoughtfully-designed, clean (stock-like) UIs for Android with a host of additional customisation
  • Blistering performance from the Qualcomm's top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865 chipset - with its 120Hz display, highly-optimised OxygenOS software, and plenty of under-the-hood tweaks, the OnePlus 8 Pro feels like the fastest phone around
  • Excellent quad-camera setup - consisting of a 48MP primary camera, a 48MP ultra-wide lens, an 8MP telephoto lens and a 5MP colour filter sensor
  • Shots taken with the primary camera are sharp and well-exposed with plenty of details, dynamic range is quite good with true-to-life colours, and white balance is consistent with the scene
  • The ultra-wide camera takes great shots as well, it pulls double duty and can shoot close-up macro photos as well - images shot with the ultra-wide lens have good details
  • Image quality from the telephoto camera is pretty good, colours and white balance are mostly consistent with the other cameras - it lets you zoom up to 3x optically and 30x with a mix of digital zoom
  • "Color filter camera" produces interesting images with its photo-chrome filter over the sensor (though, it feels more like a gimmick that normal people will hardly use)
  • Lowlight performance is quite good and the ultra-wide camera can also be used to shoot Nightscape photos
  • Portraits look pretty good, and the subject separation is on point - the portrait effect is quite convincing with smooth and silky bokeh around the subject
  • The 16MP selfie camera is the same one used in the OnePlus 7 Pro - it takes great-looking selfies with excellent dynamic range and just the right amount of sharpness
  • Portrait photos are quite good on the selfie camera as well - the subject separation is quite well
  • Video recording looks great with detail and dynamic range - stabilisation is also excellent with the Super Steady mode
  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, providing richer, deeper sound
  • Very good battery life with the 4510 mAh battery - which is the biggest OnePlus has ever put in a handset, and larger than the power pack you'll find in the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, Huawei P40 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro - it will comfortably last a full day on a single charge
  • Excellent fast charging - OnePlus has upgraded its Warp Charge 30T charging, to get you from 0% to 50% in 23 minutes via a wired connection
  • OnePlus has included fast wireless charging called Warp Charge 30 Wireless, and it takes you from 1% to 50% in 30 minutes (though, the faster charging can only be achieved with OnePlus wireless charger which costs extra)
  • With the OnePlus 8 Pro, you get an unabashed flagship, with all the bells and whistles - powerful specs, an amazing display, fast wireless charging, and water resistance make the OnePlus 8 Pro a great alternative to the Galaxy S20 Plus, and it saves you thousands of rupees
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • The OnePlus 8 Pro is a large handset, and many users will find that two hands are required to hold it securely
  • There doesn't seem to be any 'palm rejection', which could be an issue while dealing with the extreme curved display and you might see frequent accidental touches
  • Overall, the OnePlus 8 Pro has a great set of cameras, but they're still not on the same level as the best of the best like the iPhone's and the Pixel's
  • However, if you want the very best smartphone photography experience, the iPhone 11 series and the S20 series are still the way to go
