TonyTechBytes , via OnePlus 7T , Dec 3, 2019 : Hey everyone, this is Tony from the OnePlus U.S. Brand Ambassador Program. Today, I will be comparing the OnePlus 7T to the 7 Pro in terms of gaming performance. I hope to share our benchmark results and gameplay videos to help you choose between the 7T and the 7 Pro. I prefer the OnePlus 7T over the OnePlus 7 Pro because of a multitude of reasons. It’s lighter which offers a more comfortable experience in the hand while gaming. It also offers a lower resolution, which you might think is a drawback, but actually offers better battery life than the 7 Pro. It can also potentially provide a higher or more consistent frame rate because it requires slightly less GPU power to push its pixels. It’s important to note that many mobile games cap their frame rate at either 30 or 60 fps which will not allow the user to take full advantage of the 90Hz refresh rate while gaming. Mobile games also lack FPS counters, so we are unable to report specific quantitative frame rates. As a result, it proved difficult to discern a significant difference in performance between the two phones. Let’s start this comparison by taking a look at the specs of both smartphones. The OnePlus 7 Pro features a Snapdragon 855 processor with 8 cores and a maximum boost speed of 2.84GHz. It can also be configured up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The OnePlus 7T, on the other hand, packs the Snapdragon 855 Plus with the same specifications as the vanilla 855 besides a maximum turbo frequency of 2.96GHz. The 7T’s extra 120 megahertz provides a marginal improvement of around 4-6% in single and multi core synthetic benchmarks compared to the 7 Pro. Another important aspect to mention is the screen differences. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 6.67” 3120 x 1440 display with a pixel density of 516ppi. The 7T has a 6.55” 2400 x 1080 display with 402 pixels per inch. Both smartphones feature 90Hz refresh rate screens which offer silky smooth usage. Objectively speaking, the 7 Pro easily wins with its Quad HD+ curved AMOLED display. However, personal preference does play a role here because gameplay can be affected by glare, hard-to-hold edges, and battery life. If you would like to see a video version of this comparison, feel free to check it out here: While playing Asphalt 9, the OnePlus 7T performed excellently by yielding a constant frame rate, and sharp visuals. The Golden Gate Bridge, as I zoomed through the track, looked visually striking. Even the crashes looked shockingly realistic with sparks and debris flying everywhere. The OnePlus 7 Pro produced similar gameplay such as when we whizzed through the breathtaking snowy mountains. In PUBG, the OnePlus 7T implemented sustained frame rate gameplay using its higher clocked Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. Jumping out of the plane did not cause any frame drops, and landing on the ground was equally fluid. The game rendered each frame naturally, and this was highlighted by the clarity of each blade of grass. As with other games, the OnePlus 7 Pro processed PUBG without a hitch. When engaging in gunfights, the curved quad HD display provided an immersive experience. Playing Call of Duty: Mobile, the OnePlus 7 Pro performed well by providing a consistent frame rate and high resolution. The environment details were sharp, and colorful in more vibrant maps. Overall gameplay was smooth and we did not encounter any frame drops. The same could be said about the OnePlus 7T because gameplay was nearly identical. One thing to point out is that the 7T’s slightly lower resolution screen was often unnoticeable—especially in the heat of intense gunfights. Both phones performed equally well and it’s difficult to present a definitive conclusion without an FPS counter. Which smartphone do you guys think is the better option for gaming?
