Hello friends welcome to Hindibloganish.com today’s I am going to (today I am going to Review One plus 7 pro .)}
This is the new OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus is a companythat has really built up a cult following over the years. Their shtick has always been making phones that don’t cost as much asa typical iPhone or Galaxy, but do punch way above their weight class. This year, with thisphone, OnePlus decided to just go all-out and make a flagship. But it’s still a little bitcheaper than the competition. And you know what? They’ve pretty much pulled it off. So, right at the jump,here are the prices.
The base model is $670,the middle one is $700 — and that’s the one thatT-Mobile is selling — and then there’s a top-endspec beast for $750. They come in gray, almond,and this one, nebula blue. The 7 Pro is a really large Android phone. Like, kind of huge. It has a gigantic OLED display. But the thing that most peopleare probably going to notice about it is the selfie camera, which pops up with alittle motor, like this. Okay, sorry, yeah.
I’m going to come back to cameras, I promise, because the thing thatyou are going to notice every day is this screen. It is stupendous. OnePlus calls it “FluidAMOLED,” which, fine, whatever. But they can’t decidewhether it’s 6.67 inches or 6.46 inches because it’s different depending on whether or notyou count the rounded corners. Fine. It’s also super tall, witha 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Look, it’s just really bigis what I’m getting at.
But what’s special aboutit is that it not only goes edge to edge, but it also curves around the sides just like a Galaxy phone. And just like a Galaxyphone, it looks great. It gets really bright,and it gives you lots of options for calibrating the colors. There’s no notch, of course, thanks to that pop-up selfie camera. But OnePlus has included a feature that’s still pretty rare on phones: a high, 90Hz refresh rate. I know you can’t really see it on the video here, butin person it’s awesome. It’s the thing thatinstantly separates the 7 Pro from almost every other phone, except for weird gaming phones.
And the 7 Pro will ratchetthat refresh rate down in apps where it doesn’t make sense, like when you’re watchingvideos for example. The resolution of the screen will also dynamically ratchet itself downto match the video content. While the phone has QuadHD, it’s 3120 by 1440, it will drop down to1080p when it needs to in Netflix or YouTube. There’s also a Night Mode,it blocks blue light, and there’s a ReadingMode that gray scales the entire screen. You might think that some of this stuff is a little gimmicky, butit kind of does matter.
I really did use the Reading Mode and I definitely notice thesmoothness when I’m scrolling. I’m spending a lot of timetalking about the screen because, like I’ve saidin previous videos, that’s what you have todo with top-tier phones. You’re spending a lot ofmoney and you want the thing that you’re looking atall the time to look good. This screen looks greatand it has features you can’t get on evenmore expensive phones. Also, under that screen is another one of my favorite features,the fingerprint sensor. It’s way faster and more reliable than last year’s OnePlus6T, and it’s also way faster than the Galaxy S10’s ultrasonic sensor. OnePlus stuck with an optical sensor, but it made it much biggerand more responsive.
The screen does have tolight up to scan your thumb, so that looks a little bit weird, and you might haveissues with wet fingers, but I haven’t had anyproblems with it at all. You can even choose faster animations if you want to speed it up more. It’s just fast and it’s super easy to use. Thumbs up. Spec-wise, you’ve got aSnapdragon 855 driving the thing. And depending on which model you buy, you’re going to get 6,8, or 12GB of RAM. This one’s got 12. And it’s going to have either 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage, which is faster than what you’d get on a lot of phones. Look, it’s fast, thewhole thing feels fast. And I have had way fewerapp restarts than usual. Performance is no problem. The speakers sound okay,they’re much better than the ones on the older OnePlus phones, but they do get a littlebit chippy at max volume.
“This is a Galaxy Fold.” Battery life, though, is even better. I’m getting through a full day super easy and often a good waythrough the second day. Standby time is alsojust ridiculously good, probably because OnePlusis a little bit more aggressive about turning stuff off when it thinks you’re not using the phone. I really like OnePlus’ customversion of Android, too. It’s called OxygenOS. It’s based on Android9 Pie, and it’s filled with nice little toucheswithout being overbearing. And it gives you a tonof customization options. You can set gestures up to get around, so swipe up for home or swipeup on the side to go back. You can turn on a “Zenmode” that locks you out of your phone for 20 minutes so you can go look at a damn tree or something.
There are very simple theming options. There’s a game modethat’s way less annoying than Samsung’s game mode. And there’s a screenrecorder, which, thank you. Why doesn’t every Androidphone have one of those? This is the part of the review where you say “Dieter,what about the camera?” Because that’s the rulewith Android phones. Unless it’s a Pixel or a Galaxy, they fall down on the camera. The camera’s always disappointing, right? Nope! I think people are going to bereally happy with this camera.
Actually, all four of them. There are three on the back. A standard lens that’stechnically 48 megapixels, but mostly outputs 12-megapixel images unless you go into a special mode. There’s also an 8-megapixeltelephoto lens that does 3x zoom, and a 16-megapixelultra-wide angle. And of course, there’sa pop-up selfie camera, which has 16 megapixels. Maybe you’re worried aboutthis motorized selfie camera, moving parts are alwaysa thing that can break. OnePlus says it’s rated for300,000 uses, which, okay. It does auto-retract if it detects a sudden movement, like a drop. Sort of like a spooked prairiedog on top of your phone.
I can’t promise you that it won’t break, but it seems fine to me. The selfie camera, it’s not as good as I had hoped, but it’s passable. You just have to rememberto change the default away from mirrored selfiesso you’re not looking at your evil twin all the time. Here’s the news for the main camera. The shots are good, but to my eye, not quite as nice as a Pixel 3. But it’s very close, and I’m betting that some people are going to tell me that they prefer the OnePlus. It makes different choices. The images are warmer and just way less contrasty than the Pixel. I sort of prefer the Pixel’ssharper look and color choices, they seem more photographic to me. But the 7 Pro’s main camera is solid. On a technical level, the telephoto and wide-angle cameras arejust not quite as good, but they’re a hell of a lot of fun, especially when you’reoutdoors with good light. You can usually trust themto get something decent and I do love having all this versatility. But if you want the best-quality shot, you should use the main camera.
The OnePlus 7 Pro also doesa bunch of the camera tricks that you’d expect on a modern camera. It does instant HDR by usingall of those 48 megapixels in parallel instead of sequentially. It’s got a night mode thatbrightens things up pretty well, but it’s not the magicthat you’re going to get out of the Huawei P30 Proor the Pixel’s Night Sight. Portrait mode is about as good as everybody else’s,which is to say it’s fine as long as you don’t zoom in too much. And there’s a pro mode that I really like. Now I haven’t done a ton of video testing, but I also haven’t noticed anything really bad with the video, either. It has OIS and EIS, and it can shoot up to 4K at 60 fps or 1080p at 240 frames for slow motion. Here’s the bottom line on the camera: OnePlus did the thingthat they needed to do, the camera should notstop you from buying this.
Okay, but what might stopyou from buying this phone? Actually, fewer things than I expected. It doesn’t have an IPrating for water resistance. OnePlus is trying to do this thing where they say it’s not worth the money to get the official certification. But you know what? It is. We actually want to know howscary water is for this phone. It also doesn’t have wireless charging. OnePlus says it hasthis custom Warp charger that can charge it upsuper fast, and it can. But I like wirelesscharging, even if it is slow. Also, did I mention that it’s big? It’s big.
And heavy. More than anything, that’sprobably why it’s not for me and it might be a deal breakerfor a lot of other people. But if you like big phones, it should not be a deal breaker for you. What else? Oh, there’s no headphone jack. I mean, come on, did you really think there would be a headphone jack? So that’s the OnePlus 7 Pro. It’s a spec monster. And sometimes with phonesthat are spec monsters, I get a little bit nervous. It’s often a sign that the fit and finish end up being an afterthought.
But in a week or so of using this phone, I didn’t feel like OnePlusreally cut that many corners. The software is really well thought out, the ringer switch is stillhere and I still love it, and things like battery life, performance, and camera are all very impressive. Plus, you know, have you seen this screen? If you want a big Android phone, I’m sort of hard-pressed to think why you’d get a GalaxyS10 Plus or Pixel 3 XL instead of the OnePlus 7 Pro. This has a screen to matchor better those phones and the cameras are in the same ballpark and I don’t really see aperformance gap, either.
The bottom line is thatthe OnePlus 7 Pro proves that great phones don’tneed to cost $1,000. Hey, thank you so much for watching. And you know, I thinkthe story of this phone was really the screen and the camera. And let me know in the comments, which of those is more important to you? And also, if $700 is too much for you, we just did a review of the Pixel 3A, which starts at $400, and youshould check that out, too.
