TonyTechBytes, May 26, 2019 : Hey OnePlus fans! My name is Tony, and I’m one of the U.S. Brand Ambassadors for OnePlus! I got the chance to attend the OnePlus 7 Pro pop-up event at the T-Mobile Signature Store in San Francisco along with @KeBlam, @Kameron S, and @AbhishekS287. At the event, I got to try out the OnePlus 7 Pro and I’m thoroughly impressed with the performance this smartphone packs. The 7 Pro features an octa-core Snapdragon 855 central processor matched with the Adreno 640 graphics processing unit and up to 12 GB of RAM for an unrivaled experience. To cool the processors, the 7 Pro sports a sophisticated liquid cooling system (in the form of a heat pipe) to dissipate heat effectively. During intense gaming sessions, the phone (without a case on) never felt too hot. Additionally fit with a 90Hz QHD+ curved Fluid AMOLED display, the 7 Pro demonstrates unprecedented display quality seamlessly adding on to the immersive experience. After using the 7 Pro for a little more than a week now, I have to say it has been an absolute powerhouse of a device. With more RAM than many of today's laptop/desktop computers, one can have numerous apps open all at once and not worry about the phone slowing down. This also contributes positively to the longevity of the phone since apps will eventually become more RAM-hungry like Google Chrome. I tested three games with the 7 Pro and they all performed exceptionally well. The three games I tested were: Fortnite, PUBG, and Asphalt 9. The 7 Pro also automatically enables "Gaming Mode" to optimize the CPU, GPU, and RAM. There's also the "Fnatic Mode" which does all of what "Gaming Mode" does, but with silenced notifications and more optimizations. If you’d like to see a video version of my gameplay tests, feel free to check out the video I made here: Fortnite ran at epic settings, with the highest resolution of 100% quality, and at the highest frame rate option currently possible of 30 frames per second. While 30 FPS may not be suitable for competitive gaming, mobile Fortnite is often laid back with most players not able to build or fight as effectively as one could on console or PC. The game ran smoothly at 30 FPS with no stuttering or frame drops, but 60 FPS or more (if possible in the future) would be more appreciated to take advantage of the 90 Hz refresh rate of the 7 Pro’s display. The second game I tried out was PUBG, which ran smoother than Fortnite at roughly 60 FPS with the highest graphical settings. The sky looked blue, the scenery colors looked rich, and I did not experience frame drops throughout my gameplay. The actual number of frames per second could not be displayed, but due to my experience with high frame rate gaming on PC, I estimate that PUBG ran at around 60 FPS—even during high action scenarios. Asphalt 9 was the last game I tested and yet again, the 7 Pro flawlessly exceeded my expectations. This game looked extremely colorful and the animations were very captivating. I constantly crashed into enemy cars while racing through various roads and the explosion scenes were smooth and vibrant. Using the "nitro" feature of the car was also a fun experience as I sped even quicker than I could control to the finish line. A good estimate of the frame rate would be around 30 FPS since the game itself ran pretty smoothly and did not drop frames. Overall, the OnePlus 7 Pro runs games and all sorts of media impeccably. The specs on the phone add that extra bit of performance that really changes your experience using it. The 90 Hz refresh rate is significantly smoother than 60 Hz, and the display itself is incredibly immersive—especially with the curved edges of the screen. The 7 Pro is probably the best phone I’ve ever used for gaming, and far exceeds other smartphones such as the iPhone XS despite not having compatibility for 60 FPS gameplay in Fortnite. But now that I’ve shared my experience with these games, which games would you play on the OnePlus 7 Pro, and why?
