  • All the internet flooded with appreciation about Oneplus. I recently brought OnePlus 7 Pro after decent price cut but still I am regretting for my decision. Camera sucks. Forget about compare with Apple or Samsung flagships, the Camera in it is not worth compare to Galaxy M20. The crap camera I had ever used in last 6 years. I love photography so I have my own DSLR also I am not believe in mobile camera photography but still if you spent for a flagship then the decent camera should be there. The phone is heavy and big. Not a phone its a phablet. In practical use I dont like its design and form factor. Rest all things good in it. I love it but the same time hate it and missing my old S9. How practical that was to use. Except these 2 points I dont have any issue with the phone.. and yes whenever someone described Oneplus 7 camera, I feel like "Really" is it worth to discuss about it?

  • Just picked this one up for $450.00 from T-Mobile. At that price it's a no-brainer, especially with the price hike on the 8's.

  • @03:39 - Dude, the fisheye look is a hallmark of the wltrawide, it's the go pro look! Why do all of you reviewers suddenly sound like it's a bad thing? Wut ?

  • @01:52 - You don't need in-display fp sensor to get good screen to body ratio. You can stick it at the back like the OnePlus 6 or countless other phones.

  • This is an awesome phone. I have the One Plus 7 Pro 128GB RAM + 256GB ROM and it's awesome. I hardly ever have to charge this phone and a day and a half charge is more then enough for me, especially when thinking about wireless charging. Wireless charging is a nice feature but Warp Charging is ridiculously fast; faster then any phone I've ever owned. The camera is fine for me. Just basic photos are all I need. I'm not a photographer.! I need fast performance in my phones with a lot of ROM storage to save my files. The UFS 3.0 speed is cool but the 128GB of RAM; not sure of the speed, is awesome. Lets not forget about that 90Hz refresh rate. I love this phone. If you want this phone I would suggest that you not purchase it from a retailer since tax will drive up your cost. Do as I did and purchase it from and if you're a student expect an additional discount besides not paying a tax. This purchasing method allowed me to get the top tier model that OnePlus had at the time. I'm Happy..!

  • This video is 100% wrong !! This is by far the best smartphone of 2019 ! I got mine for $549 ! No other phone even comes close to this in sheer performance, style or price !! Camera is fantastic and for most people ( like you ) that are NOT professional photographers this is more than fine !! Makes me laugh how these TH-vision people think they are the experts LOL

    Steve CeaSteve Cea5 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • I don't think you can find a better new phone at the price (especially with the Black Friday promo they have going on right now.) You're paying $549 (less with student discount) for a huge QHD+ AMOLED screen with a 90hz refresh rate, 256gbs of storage with UFS 3.0 for quicker read/write speeds, 8gbs of RAM, a Snapdragon 855 processor, 4,000 mAh battery, some of the fastest (if not the fastest) charging rates, dual stereo speakers, amazing haptic feedback motor, and so forth. You could spend more money if you want 12gbs of RAM or more storage, but I think the specs on the $549 model is more than enough for most people. The camera isn't the best compared to other high end phones, but those phones costs much more (with the exception of the Pixel 3a). You're also missing wireless charging and IPS rating, but those are some features most people looking to spend this amount of money don't usually get anyways unless they're buying an older model phone high end phone. Even then you have to outweigh the pros and cons of wether those features are worth the extra cost for similar or less powerful hardware. The MSRP difference between the OnePlus 7 Pro and other high end phones might be around $100 or more, but the deals OnePlus offers tend to be much cheaper than the MSRP. Couple all of that with OnePlus' support/updates and I don't think you can find a better phone for $549. The OnePlus 6T is $100 less, but you're getting better hardware and storage one the OnePlus 7 Pro. Even the newer 7T isn't as great as the 7 Pro and that costs more. Just got the OnePlus 7 Pro in the mail yesterday and I couldn't be happier. I was recently mugged and was looking to purchase an iPhone 11s or a used iPhone XS to replace my stolen iPhone. Saw the deal for the OnePlus 7 Pro and couldn't pass it up. It's my non Apple phone and while it does take getting used to, I have no issues with the phone at this price. The only downside is that I can't use the $10,000 first gen Gold Apple Watch my father bought me when I graduated.

  • Yep you buy a phone for the camera. But my main reason is regular software updates and decent chip set that will see me through at least 2 years. Samsung phones slow down and they are very slow at up dating there phones. The cheaper end Pixel has a lower tier chipset and will slow down. Also I feel that reviewers and user need to get real. You keep wanting OnePlus to improve but it shouldn't cost. How many phones can you get that are new with OnePlus reliability of software. Yes the Samsung phone has gone down in price but I had the S10e for 2 months the software had a lot of lag. At £649 show me a phone with near stock android barring a few extras that runs this well and will see this amount of updates Mr Fisher

  • I bought this phone after watching all the tech youtubers. Your review is the one I should have watched . The phone has pathetic camera. I dont use camera to take pictures but I use it for Video calls. An old iPhone 6s's Facetime is generations ahead of Oneplus 7 pro. This phone is solely for playing games.

  • Yeah, I totally agree with you on the camera shutter fire lag. Last phone I use is the note 9 and I have no problem whatsoever with the camera and the shutter fire. But this oneplus 7 pro, I experienced a totally noticeable shutter fire lag. Just yesterday, I met one of our local tech reviewer which he is quite popular on fb and I ask my sis to take a photo of us. After a short amount of time, I thought the camera have captured a good photo. Then when I arrived home, my eyes were closed. I am sure that with the same amount of time, my note 9 would take a perfect picture of us. As much as I love the 90hz screen and everything, I am gonna change back to note 9. Just miss the perfect phone with a perfect stylus for me.

  • I'm still Using My Oneplus 3T and 3 years on its still going strong. I'm hoping that the New Oneplus 7T or 7TPRO will push me to upgrade. Fantastic brand that keeps getting better year on year, all it needs now is to bring back the headphone Jack and possibly an IP rating for waterproofing. 👍

  • I agree on the camera. But honestly, everything else destroys anything on the current market. The OS is the snappiest I've ever experienced. Refresh rates insane. The feel of the phone with the haptic feedback is superb. The battery never lets me down... I can't say that anything has ever come so close to being absolutely perfect (save for the camera, pixel 3 XL had me there). It's by far the best smartphone experience I've ever had.

    • Not really. With smartphone companies putting so effort into their cameras, they're quite important nowerdays. Especially as many people rely on their smartphone instead of owning a DSLR now.

  • Huge respect to Micheal because of being honest while all the other bloggers are probably getting Chinese support for their channel this channel remains neutral. My previous phone was one plus 3T and it can not even be compared to my galaxy note 3 which I used for 3 years. One plus with its huge marketing in youtube and internet kept its quality barely one year. And then it began terribly slow down freeze and eventually became a piece of garbage. If I compare that to my old Galaxy note 3 phone which lasted 3 years under heavy use, no way Samsung has heck a lot of reliability. As what comes about dishonest TH-visionrs like Dave2D, MHKB, and Unboxing Therapy they are simply making money and when it comes to chines junk producers they realized that internet marketing particularly youtube marketing is way more effective than tv and others. In one word from my experience DON'T BUY ANY CHINESE JUNK.

  • The OnePlus 7 pro has the hardware to impress and the software is blistering. I can't say it's the greatest phone I've ever owned but I can say it's the best media phone I've ever had bar none. It's my big screen phone for TH-vision and Netflix etc and it is perfection. It's loud, it's screen is amazing and it's cameras give incredible flexibility. It's my boom box at work while I cut meat. I left my note 9 for it and my daily driver is now the OnePlus 7 12 gigabyte ram from China and the T-Mobile OnePlus 7 pro. If Samsung is going to ditch my headphone jack and prepare to drop expandable storage then I'm dropping them. The Note 10 is the note 5 reborn and I didn't buy that thing either. I encourage others to try OnePlus and find out what buttery smooth feels like without touching a single setting.

  • Have the Oneplus 6. Never will I buy a Oneplus again. Such a dull boring smartphone. And after 1 year it seems battery life is already degrading. Don't like the screen don't know exactly why. My Nokia 1520 WM phone was much more satisfying. I will receive Samsung Not 10+ today. Have to wait what that brings. Not an Android or pseudo Android (iphone) fan. Seems all the same to me. The bigger screen and IP68 enclosure should make the Note more usable on my motorcycle. Oneplus still doesn't have certified IP value I see.

  • This review feels like you took the worst feature of the one plus 7 pro and decided to put it center stage. It’s as if I was reviewing a Lion and talking about how poor it performed at the pool x) “ Yeah, it’s true it’s got a nice ROAR, and yes it will hunt an antilope but, when we through it in the pool, it had minimal swimming skills. I can’t recommend the Lion, it’s an underwhelming animal “ 😂😂

  • Not a great phone?? Really?? Camera is not everything you know? The oneplus 7 Pro is the fastest and most gorgeous phone on the market and one of the phew phones with an actual 90 hz display that goes up to 1440 p... What more can you demand? If you are a photographer you should buy a camera. Oneplus may not have the best camera but instead they focus on the performance of the device...
