OnePlus 7 Pro Review – This is the Best Smartphone so far in 2019


“By no means Settle” has been OnePlus’ mantra for the reason that model launched its first smartphone, the “Flagship Killer” OnePlus One. For years, the “By no means Settle” motto and “Flagship Killer” title have been the butt of snarky headlines. Each new smartphone that OnePlus launched would evoke criticism that the corporate was, the truth is, “settling” on one thing. As the costs of latest OnePlus smartphones slowly crept upward, encroaching on the territory of the Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone, OnePlus followers have puzzled when the corporate will launch a very no-compromise smartphone that deserves the worth hike. Right this moment, the corporate did simply that with the brand new OnePlus 7 Professional.

The OnePlus 7 Professional is the most important generational leap for OnePlus in its whole historical past. The listing of what’s modified from final yr’s OnePlus 6T is exceptional: an upgraded show with a better decision and refresh-rate show, the elimination of the notch and practically all bezels, a triple rear digicam setup, the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, 30W quick charging, as much as 12GB RAM, sooner storage, a greater fingerprint reader, and way more. Within the U.S., the OnePlus 7 Professional begins at $669 – $120 greater than the OnePlus 6T, however $70 lower than the Samsung Galaxy S10e. Is the OnePlus 7 Professional with all these upgrades actually value the additional $120 over the OnePlus 6T, and is it higher than the entry-level Samsung Galaxy S10? Let’s discover out in our assessment.

About this assessment: I acquired the Nebula Blue OnePlus 7 Professional (12GB RAM + 256GB storage) from OnePlus on Might 2nd, 2019. I’ve used the system as my day by day driver since receiving the system. OnePlus is a sponsor of XDA, however they didn’t have any enter on the content material of this assessment.

OnePlus 7  Professional Boards


The Nebula Blue OnePlus 7 Professional is a magnificence. Shining gentle on the again reveals a purple-ish hue close to the highest and a lighter sky blue close to the underside. There are a number of layers of glass together with an anti-glare layer. The again doesn’t entice fingerprints such as you would assume, although you possibly can see smudges should you shine a light-weight straight on the again. In addition to the OnePlus emblem and branding textual content, the triple rear digicam setup with an LED flash may be discovered on the again. There’s no fingerprint scanner on the again as a result of the OnePlus 7 Professional, like final yr’s OnePlus 6T, helps Display screen Unlock.

The body on the OnePlus 7 Professional is metallic and feels sturdy. On the underside, you’ll discover the twin nano-SIM card tray, the USB 3.1 Kind-C port, a microphone, and a speaker. On the appropriate, you’ll discover the ability button and alert slider. On the left, you’ll discover the amount buttons. Lastly on prime, you’ll discover the pop-up digicam and one other microphone.

The entrance of the OnePlus 7 Professional is nearly totally adorned with the 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED show. The cellphone is unquestionably tall and laborious to make use of in a single hand, but it surely’s skinny and never very broad so it’s simple to succeed in throughout the show. Coming from the massive 7.2″ Huawei Mate 20 X, the OnePlus 7 Professional doesn’t really feel that large to me, however I notice I’m within the minority right here. It’s undoubtedly an enormous cellphone that you just’ll need to get used to.

There are nearly no bezels to be discovered on the OnePlus 7 Professional other than a tiny backside bezel and a good smaller prime bezel housing the second speaker and proximity sensor. The show is curved and thus wraps across the edges, leading to minimal aspect bezels. The fingerprint sensor is situated underneath the show. The show is, for my part, the very best half in regards to the OnePlus 7 Professional, however earlier than I dive in too deeply I’m going to handle how OnePlus managed to make the smartphone notch-less.

In regards to the Pop-up Digicam

To realize such a excessive screen-to-body ratio (93.22%), OnePlus moved the entrance digicam from the highest bezel to the highest of the system, retracted into the physique of the cellphone. Not like the mechanical slider mechanism of comparable bezel-less smartphones (the Honor Magic 2 and Xiaomi Mi Combine 3 come to thoughts), the OnePlus 7 Professional’s pop-up 16MP entrance digicam is managed by a motor. There’s no satisfying click on to indicate and conceal the entrance digicam, however the noise you hear from the motor is quiet and the lighting impact on the sting of the show is fairly. Additionally, for the reason that entrance digicam seems mechanically while you unlock the display screen (if face unlock is enabled), you possibly can unlock your cellphone way more rapidly than you possibly can on mechanical slider telephones.

For the reason that pop-up digicam is managed by a motor, there are two issues to fret about right here: Is it fast to look and is it sturdy? At a pop-up time of about 600-700ms, I can undoubtedly say that the mechanism is quick sufficient to not impede facial recognition. The OnePlus 7 Professional scans my face mainly immediately after urgent the ability button; I haven’t observed any main variations in face unlock speeds from my OnePlus 6T. Listed here are two movies I recorded exhibiting the front-facing digicam coming out of the highest and retracting into the physique.

Since Vivo introduced the NEX final yr, considerations in regards to the long-term sturdiness of motorized pop-up cameras have raged. It’s been a yr for the reason that Vivo NEX, and I haven’t heard of any main points with its entrance digicam. The OnePlus 7 Professional is a completely totally different cellphone, to be honest, so I can’t totally decide its sturdiness utilizing the Vivo NEX for instance. That being mentioned, OnePlus claims the OnePlus 7 Professional can face up to 300,000 cycles of popping the digicam out and in of the system or over 400 instances a day for two years. I can’t totally take a look at that declare within the time I’ve had the system nor would I need to topic my assessment unit to potential breakage anyway, however I did write a brief Tasker script to open and shut the OnePlus 7 Professional’s entrance digicam and take a selfie 10,000 instances. That’s greater than 3 months of use of the entrance digicam, assuming you unlock your cellphone with face unlock and take selfies 100 instances a day.

My 10k Tasker take a look at is certainly not a real stress take a look at of the motorized entrance digicam as a result of I didn’t take a look at the pop-up mechanism when there are obstructions, particles, or anything that might intrude. The entrance digicam must be protected in opposition to drops to the ground, nevertheless, for the reason that OnePlus 7 Professional will mechanically shut the entrance digicam when a fall is detected. I examined this by dropping my cellphone from just a few toes onto a mattress and the entrance digicam instantly closed after leaving my hand. After I picked the cellphone up, there was a warning that the digicam was closed to guard it. For the typical, on a regular basis person, the OnePlus 7 Professional’s front-facing digicam ought to final you all through the system’s lifetime. When you’re nonetheless not satisfied and need to see an goal stress take a look at of the system, you’ll have to attend for somebody like Zach from the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything to place the cellphone underneath the grinder.

Face unlock settings in OxygenOS 9 for the OnePlus 7 Professional. You possibly can both set face unlock to mechanically unlock the cellphone when your face is acknowledged or you possibly can set it to remain on the lock display screen. The previous means you’ll nearly by no means see the lock display screen whereas the latter permits you to see your notifications whereas skipping the entry of your PIN/password/sample.

Sadly, face unlock on the OnePlus 7 Professional continues to be insecure. Authentication works by evaluating a saved picture of your face with the stay picture from the viewfinder; the expertise is totally based mostly on the accuracy of the picture recognition software program that OnePlus applied. As a result of the OnePlus 7 Professional lacks devoted facial recognition {hardware} (the flood illuminator, IR digicam, and dot projector on the Xiaomi Mi 8 EE, iPhone X, and Huawei Mate 20 Professional, or the TOF sensor on the LG G8 ThinQ), its facial recognition may be defeated if somebody has a picture of your face. Whereas the OnePlus 7 Professional’s facial recognition is quick, it’s insecure and never really useful to be used should you care about securing the information in your system.


A big, bezel-less, curved 6.67” show dons the entrance of the OnePlus 7 Professional. The OnePlus 6T already had a number of the thinnest bezels we’ve seen of smartphones offered within the U.S., however the OnePlus 7 Professional takes issues to an entire new degree. Virtually your complete entrance of the cellphone is the show save for a really skinny bezel on the backside and an equally slim bezel on the prime housing a speaker. I’ve used a virtually bezel-less cellphone earlier than within the Honor Magic 2, however the OnePlus 7 Professional does a significantly better job at maintaining me immersed due to its superior 516ppi AMOLED show.

The show curves across the sides like on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. A curved show means the aspect bezels are nonexistent, the edges are simpler to provoke swipes from when the cellphone is encased, and the edges can be utilized for cool results just like the notification lighting. (The final one is very necessary for the reason that OnePlus 7 Professional, just like the OnePlus 6T earlier than it, lacks a notification LED.) Then again, a curved show means it’ll be more durable to use an aftermarket display screen protector; for higher or worse, OnePlus pre-applied a display screen protector within the manufacturing unit so that you don’t have to purchase one your self. When you haven’t used a smartphone with a curved display screen earlier than, don’t fear. It doesn’t hassle me in any respect when watching a video.

Loads of new smartphones are practically bezel-less, in order that’s not what makes the OnePlus 7 Professional stand out. As a substitute, it’s the truth that the brand new OnePlus has arguably the very best show available on the market with its 90Hz QHD+ panel.

90Hz and QHD+

The OnePlus 7 Professional packs the very best show that OnePlus has ever placed on a smartphone. The OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T all had Samsung-made “Optic AMOLED” shows working at 60Hz at 1080p decision. The brand new OnePlus 7 Professional has what the corporate is asking a “Fluid AMOLED” show working at both 60Hz or 90Hz and at both 1080p or 1440p decision. QHD AMOLED shows are already a rarity other than the flagship Samsung Galaxy sequence, however the inclusion of a show able to working at a 90Hz refresh rate is really exceptional. The OnePlus 7 Professional is the primary smartphone offered outdoors of China with such a show.

Out of the field, the OnePlus 7 Professional is about to its native 90Hz refresh rate however mechanically switches between FHD+ and QHD+ resolutions. OnePlus says the decision auto swap takes into consideration what content material is being displayed on the display screen. For instance, the decision will dynamically swap to QHD+ if OxygenOS detects you’re watching a video. Personally, I want leaving the OnePlus 7 Professional at 90Hz and QHD+ decision; battery life be damned, this mix gives the very best expertise! However as you’ll discover out within the battery life part of this assessment, enabling the OnePlus 7 Professional’s greatest show settings doesn’t have a major affect on battery life, although the GPU efficiency is affected.

For many individuals, the OnePlus 7 Professional might be their first smartphone with a excessive refresh rate show. It’s truly my first smartphone with such a show, although I’ve used 120Hz gaming screens and each generations of the Razer Cellphone for temporary durations of time. The good thing about the OnePlus 7 Professional’s larger refresh rate isn’t one thing that may be proven on video, sadly. It’s one thing you actually need to see for your self to grasp its greatness. Like on each OnePlus flagship, scrolling is buttery easy on the OnePlus 7 Professional, but it surely’s absurdly easy with 90Hz enabled. When you get an opportunity to play with the system in a retailer, attempt studying textual content as you scroll pages up and down together with your finger. At 90Hz, you possibly can truly make out the textual content as you’re scrolling. Not less than for me, that’s not doable at 60Hz.

Not like desktop PCs, the transfer to 90Hz on the OnePlus 7 Professional doesn’t present a lot profit for cellular gaming. The vast majority of Android video games are FPS locked, which means you possibly can’t push them past 30 or 60 frames per second. For players, having a excessive refresh rate show issues way more on the PC aspect slightly than cellular. Nonetheless, I’d argue that having a excessive refresh rate show is way extra necessary for normal utilization on cellular than PC. Customers scroll far, much more usually on cellular than PC, which means you’ll truly see the consequences of the upper refresh rate outdoors of gaming.

In-display fingerprint scanner

Final yr, OnePlus debuted “Display screen Unlock” on the OnePlus 6T. Display screen Unlock is their time period for the optical under-display fingerprint scanner. There are two sorts of under-display fingerprint scanners: optical and ultrasonic. Optical sensors are discovered on most smartphones with under-display fingerprint sensors. They work by lighting up the AMOLED panel within the space above the sensor and studying the reflection of the sunshine when your finger is pressed in opposition to that a part of the panel. Ultrasonic sensors, nevertheless, detect the ridges and contours of your finger by measuring the time it takes for an ultrasonic wave to succeed in your finger and replicate again onto the sensor. The one smartphones with an ultrasonic under-display fingerprint scanner are the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+.

Like all optical sensors, the OnePlus 7 Professional’s in-display fingerprint scanner can have bother scanning in low-light circumstances, scanning moist fingers, or scanning chilly fingers. Whereas I personally haven’t had a lot bother with the OnePlus 6T or OnePlus 7 Professional recognizing my finger, I’ve heard different reviewers and customers complain in regards to the expertise. A trick I like to recommend is to initially prepare your finger as soon as in a low-light situation after which as soon as extra in a shiny situation the place there’s daylight. I haven’t had to do that on my OnePlus 7 Professional, however doing this on my Black Shark 2 assessment unit, one other cellphone with an optical under-display fingerprint scanner, labored wonders to enhance recognition.

The fingerprint recognition on the OnePlus 7 Professional has usually been very fast and correct within the practically 2 weeks I’ve used the system. OnePlus says the 7 Professional makes use of a next-generation sensor, which suggests the popularity space is bigger when in comparison with the OnePlus 6T. I haven’t actually observed a distinction, personally. That being mentioned, I’ve to level out two flaws with Display screen Unlock since they nonetheless maintain true from my OnePlus 6T assessment. First, the sensor requires a tough press and temporary maintain in opposition to the show not like the ultrasonic sensor on the Galaxy S10/S10+ which works with a light-weight faucet. Second, the sensor lights up the display screen and turns off Evening Mode when doing so; chances are you’ll discover your face blasted with a shiny gentle should you attempt to unlock your cellphone at evening. These points aren’t deal-breakers by any means, however they’re annoyances that I do know may be solved by switching to an ultrasonic sensor.

Lastly, the OnePlus 7 Professional comes with some further Display screen Unlock customization choices that weren’t out there on the OnePlus 6T at launch. The power to alter the fingerprint animation impact returns from the OnePlus 6T, however OnePlus has additionally introduced the “fast launch” function which was added to the OnePlus 6T just a few months after its launch. This function permits you to entry app shortcuts or launch an app by persevering with to carry your finger in opposition to the fingerprint recognition space after the cellphone is unlocked. After holding your finger for a second or two, your chosen shortcuts will seem on the display screen.

Curved Edge Lighting Results

To enhance the screen-to-body ratio on the OnePlus 6T, OnePlus needed to sacrifice the notification LED so they may match the proximity sensor and front-facing digicam into the waterdrop notch space. Since there’s not a lot room on the highest of the OnePlus 7 Professional, OnePlus sadly needed to as soon as once more ditch the notification LED. This time, nevertheless, the corporate has an alternate: edge lighting results. When the cellphone’s display screen is turned off and an incoming notification seems on the ambient show, a brief, blue pulse may be seen on the curved edges. This allows you to know that there’s a brand new, unread notification. Whereas certainly not an revolutionary function (we’ve seen a type of this on Samsung telephones for the reason that Galaxy S6 edge), it’s good to see that OnePlus has heard the suggestions from customers.

At the moment, there’s no technique to customise the lighting impact, however we hope that OnePlus introduces such customization in a future OxygenOS replace.

Evening Mode 2.0, Video Enhancer, DC dimming, Studying mode, and display screen calibration

The OnePlus 7 Professional’s show deserves its personal assessment, and we’re planning on having our show analyst, Dylan Raga, scrutinize each side of it. As an informal observer, I haven’t observed any of the same old points that crop up with AMOLED panels: no ugly blue shifting at low brightness, no picture distortions within the curved edges, and many others. I’ve watched movies like Sport of Thrones, YouTube movies, and anime. I’ve performed video games like Fortnite Cellular and PUBG Cellular. I’ve spent hours shopping the net on Chrome, losing time on Reddit, studying emails, and checking social media. In all circumstances, textual content and pictures are crisp, vibrant, and exquisite. Show purists will need to change just a few settings on the cellphone whereas avoiding others, so right here’s a quick rundown on the out there options that have an effect on the show:

  • Video enhancer – This function appears to boost the vibrancy of movies by growing the saturation of the show.
  • DC dimming – This function has began showing from mainly each Chinese language smartphone model. What it does is decrease the voltage of the display screen to scale back display screen flickering at low brightness. This may also help cut back display screen fatigue, but it surely comes at the price of shade accuracy.
  • Evening mode – A regular platform function since Android 7.1 Nougat, Evening mode shifts the colour temperature of the show to scale back eye pressure at evening. The hotter the temperature, the much less blue gentle will get beamed to your eyes. OnePlus says Evening Mode has been enhanced on the OnePlus 7 Professional, which is why they’re now calling it “Evening Mode 2.0.” The corporate says they’ve managed to scale back the brightness to an especially low degree (0.27 nits). Certainly, the cellphone can get actually, actually dim should you set the “lightness” slider to the darkest worth. Talking of brightness, on the other finish the best brightness degree you possibly can manually alter to is 420 nits whereas the auto-brightness can kick issues as much as 600 nits.
  • Studying mode – This function makes the display screen grayscale and blocks heads-up notifications within the apps you choose. The concept is to enhance the distinction by turning the whole lot black and white, letting you learn for longer with out your eyes getting drained, whereas additionally blocking distracting notifications.
  • Display screen calibration – You possibly can select between the Vivid and Pure show mode presets right here. Vivid is taken into account shade inaccurate however extra pleasing to the eyes for many customers. Pure is, I’m guessing, shade correct, however I can’t say for certain with out correctly testing the calibration. Lastly, you possibly can select the “Superior” choice to alter which shade gamut to focus on (NTSC, sRGB, or Show-P3) and in addition the temperature of the display screen utilizing a slider.
