2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 28+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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
  • The OnePlus 8 Pro is a large handset, and many users will find that two hands are required to hold it securely

Display

  • 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
  • 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

Software

  • OxygenOS continues to be one of the most thoughtfully-designed, clean (stock-like) UIs for Android with a host of additional customisation

Performance

  • 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

Camera

  • 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
  • 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

Audio

  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, providing richer, deeper sound

Battery

  • 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)

Verdict

  • 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
  • However, if you want the very best smartphone photography experience, the iPhone 11 series and the S20 series are still the way to go
