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
  • Eye-catching, attractive design, like a lot of recent Vivo and Oppo phones - the back of the phone is all sorts of interesting, with gradient style colorways - it’s definitely going to turn heads
  • On the front, the phone is all screen - and looks really damn good - it's an expansive viewing field that is as close to the concept of all-screen devices as we’ve gotten to so far
  • This is not a small phone, but the gently curved edges and back make it very comfortable to hold - Vivo has also done a really good job with weight distribution, and the phone nestles very easily in the palm of your hand
  • There’s a direct shortcut for Google Assistant on the left side of the phone - double clicking the button activates Google Lens or Vivo’s own Jovi image recognition
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner works perfectly well
  • There's also perfectly capable face recognition that uses the unique pop-up selfie camera (takes less than half a second to pop-out)
  • The large, vibrant, 6.23 inch display Super AMOLED display of course stands out - the screen is nice and sharp with crisp text rendering - it's also excellent for media consumption, with no notch to disrupt a clean experience - it also gets sufficiently bright for outdoor use in direct sunlight
  • On it's own, FunTouch OS UI is pretty functional, customizable, and smooth
  • The Snapdragon 675 is a pretty good performer, just a notch below the 710 is real life use cases - navigating through the interface and jumping between apps is very smooth, and playing games like PUBG is also a very enjoyable experience (even with graphics set to high)
  • Pretty decent set of rear cameras - especially in day light - the Vivo V15 Pro has three different rear camera modules - there’s a 5MP depth-sensing camera, an 8MP wide-angle sensor and of course a 48MP primary camera - while you can shoot full resolution, 48MP, shots from the camera, it works best when pixel-binned to 12MP
  • Particularly useful is the ultra wide lens - which gives a really nice way to get a very different perspective
  • Very good popup selfie camera - that pops out in under half a second - and produces some good quality images in most lighting conditions - there's also a very powerful beauty mode, if you are into that sort of stuff - overall, as far as selfie cameras go, this is one of the best, not just in this price range, but on any smartphone
  • Good battery life with a 3700mAh battery -with moderate use the phone can give you up to 1.5 days
  • Supports fast charging with Vivo’s “Dual Engine” charging - you get a 25 percent charge in 15 minutes - and a full charge in about 1 and a half hours
  • Overall, the V15 Pro is another great, innovative device from the Vivo camp - you can go for it if you want a good balance between performance and design, and an amazing, true 'full screen' display - if on the other hand you are looking for the best rear camera experience or the best performance - look instead at the Poco F1, OnePlus 6T and Honor View 20
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 volume rocker is a little bit too high up, sometimes requiring a little shimmy to reach
  • The location of the fingerprint touchpoint for the in-display scanner is a little too low on the screen and you might find yourself having to bend your thumb over a bit too much to unlock the phone
  • Coming as the the Vivo V15 Pro does with a glass back, the usual caveats apply - the phone is slippery, and is nearly impossible to keep the back clean of fingerprints and smudges (having said that, Vivo is throwing a well-designed case in the box, which takes care of these issues)
  • The lack of Widewine L1 certification means that the phone can’t stream HD videos on Netflix or Amazon (they will stream at 540p resolution)
  • It is still pretty much a clone of iOS though - and that might not be everyone's cup of tea
  • It also packs a bunch of bloatware (mostly un-installable, thankfully)
  • It's also somewhat buggy at places - for instance the aggressive battery management means that it sometimes force closes apps unexpectedly
  • It does get slightly warm though, when put under heavy continuous load
  • Sound quality during video recording is pretty average
  • Overall, the rear cameras are good, but they are still a notch below the top competitors - the Pocophone, Honor View 20 and OnePlus 6T (on the other hand, the front camera of the V15 Pro is arguably better than that of these three)
  • Uses the old microUSB standard, instead of the modern USB-C
