    Yikes. You certainly caught it well with your camera, it actually looks like that in real life too?

    Sorry - for clarity I borrowed the photo from the Tom's guide review.

    I would be more inclined to suggest that the colors are a little washed and whites are popping a lot here. I'll get my device Tuesday to test this out. Maybe another proud owner can see if it's reproducible and how bad it actually is.

    I agree, if this is the case it is not acceptable. Maybe a decent screen protector with privacy glass can assist in reducing it if the problem is legit.

    Ah. Must say I spend most summer in the sun getting skin cancer so if that was reality i would have a huge problem.

    I'd always been a Samsung galaxy user until the curved screens came out and thankfully met a OnePlus 3 user and I was smitten.

    My 6T will be my last OnePlus if they persist with this design.

    Looks like the One Plus 7 (non-Pro) edition won't have curved glass

    Interesting to see how much of a difference will a antiglare matt screen protector make
    curve is shit especially this implementation
    if you much have it they should have gone with a subtle one like s10+ has

    That's the reason s10+ has been designed in such a way that it's less curved at the edges!! The s6+ edge had the same problem 5 years ago!! OnePlus is bringing that problem now!! •©®™

    I just bought the 7 pro, and I've been using it for few hours. Sad to say I don't like the curve screen at all. Images seem kind of stretched out. Also the screen feels more slippery. I miss my 6t already.

    Do you have the ability to return it where you are? I'm the uk we have two weeks.

    You're right. The S10 curve is minimal and actually rather nice, the 7pro is huge and unusable.

    That particular photo may well be over exposed. But the glare on the screen is visible on every YouTube review.

    Watch Marques Brownlee's for example - 3 mins 20 in, he's using it outside and the sides are unviewable. Screenshot_20190518-185829.jpg

    It propably will get something to use to. Physically the phone feels clumsy, because the screen is big and much more slippery than 6T. Also the phone weights too much. But overall a little bit better phone than 6T.

    Just watched a new vid that's just came out and he comments on the glare too which he doesn't like. Watch from 2m 40s.

    Try to use it for more days, much as possible. If you still not satisfied, than replace it. For big phones, you need get to use it. need times
