The Chinese company lead by Carl Pei, OnePlus, just a while back released their two new flagships for the year 2019. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. Both the devices are power-packed devices with top of the lines specs and are the best value-for-money phones one can buy in 2019.
We are here to discuss to the higher-end model i.e the OnePlus 7 Pro. We will help you decide if this new device from OnePlus is well worth your hard-earned money or should you skip it.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has an A+ rated display panel by Display Mate. This means the screen quality is one of the best among smartphones. The Pro variant has a 90Hz display which is an AMOLED Panel, the resolution of which is Quad-HD +.
The 90Hz screen makes every operation buttery smooth, be it gaming or scrolling through apps, the 90Hz panel is an absolute joy to use.
The all-screen is truly gorgeous and a thing to look at. There are no notches or any cut-outs for the camera Instead, we get a pop-up selfie shooter.
Performance and Camera
As this is a flagship device you also get flagship internals. The 7 Pro houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with a whopping 12GB of RAM and liquid cooling tech. The device also comes with superfast UFS 3.0 storage.
The camera system also gets an upgrade from the previous generation. Now we have a triple camera arrangement on the back with a pop-up front camera. The 48 megapixel is not the greatest but it will get your job done.
The camera also has something called Nightscape which basically helps you take better pictures during night time. You can shoot 4K videos at 60FPS and super slow-mo at 1080p 240fps.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has some cool unique feature. One such is Zen Mode. which simply put bricks your phone for 20 minutes.
What this thing does is that you can only take and place calls and take photos. That’s it. nothing else. This mode might sound extream but can come in handy for those why are addicted to their phones.
The device also comes with Widevine L1 DRM support. The device runs on Oxygen OS which is very close to stock Android but with added benefits.
There’s also the fast charging functionality on this phone.
Should I buy it?
Well, to be honest, it depends. No doubt the OnePlus 7 Pro is a good phone and has good value, but nothing is extraordinary. If you’re a camera geek than something from the Pixel line-up or Samsung will suit you better.
If you are someone who likes their phone to be super fast than the 7 Pro is made for you or love big screen devices.
Even with all these the lack of audio jack, waterproofing and a $669 starting price, the OnePlus 7 Pro could become a hard sell.
