AnonymousWP, May 18, 2019 : Credits to my brother for designing this header ^. Note: if you don't want to read all this, head to the table of contents and there you can jump to other chapters. Hey everyone, for those who don’t know me (yet): I’m AnonymousWP. I’ve been a OnePlus-user since quite some time. Since the OnePlus 2 to be exactly. I heard about it from a friend. He told me OnePlus is selling the OnePlus 2 at the moment, which was supposed to be a Flagship Killer. Looking at the specs it offered for the money - I was immediately sold. Sadly enough, this didn’t last very long. It didn’t get the promised updates and OxygenOS was in a baby-phase anyway. Luckily OnePlus allows you to unlock the bootloader and thus now, I flashed LineageOS on it. Now my mom uses it. ~1-2 years later I got the OnePlus 3. I got it for free by a community member I know, including all accessories, because he liked my effort I put in the community. I was flabbergasted! I’ve used the 3 until I got the 7 Pro. It actually came right on time, since I dropped my OnePlus 3 a few weeks ago. I’m always very careful with my devices so that it got a crack was a wonder! Especially because I never ever cracked a device. This summer I’ll go to the US, so having the 7 Pro is being very lucky. I’ll be able to test it fully with shooting pics there partly. OnePlus announced their flagship on the 14th of May and with this, they’re trying to give the high end market a shot with their 7 Pro. A non-Pro version has been announced as well, but will officially come out in June. The 5G version of the Pro will also come later this year. Further, where others may know me from is Oxygen Updater (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arjanvlek.oxygenupdater). I post news and push those to your OnePlus devices, add updates to the app and I answer user’s questions. I’m not the developer of the app, but he’s a friend of me. Because my OnePlus 3 was my daily driver, I’ll mostly compare the 3 to this OnePlus 7 Pro in this review. Others may know me from: Being a mod at the /r/OnePlus Discord My reviews and OnePlus-related topics at Tweakers.net (I won several nominations with those reviews, chosen by the editors and community) And now because of The Lab of course . Enough talking about myself. Let’s talk more about the device now . I’ll be talking about the following things in the upcoming days/weeks: Unboxing Case Specs Display Performance Battery Software Camera Usage in different scenarios Conclusion As always, I’ll try to give you as much information as you want and with a lot of details, so it might take some time before you see appear chapter X, Y or Z. This was the moment I couldn’t wait for. I was eagerly waiting for my package to get shipped. Then I heard from DHL it would arrive between 10am and 3pm. Meanwhile, it arrived at 4:30pm! I couldn’t really fall asleep or go through the day without looking forward to arrive this device, and then, on the 14th of May, it happened: the package arrived. I couldn’t wait to unpack it but first I shot some pictures out of excitement. For those who don’t want to read all this, here’s an unboxing video I made: And as OnePlus mostly does on their boxes, they write a nice message for their community, to thank them for their support. They do this to make their phones/expression more personal. The red/white scheme is also nice to look at. And their slogan on the side which says “Go Beyond Speed”: If you open the box, which is very satisfying, you’ll get to see another (red) box. If you want to know exactly what’s in there, you can check my unboxing video: Now we’re going to unbox it more, you might as well want to know about what will be delivered in the box, which is: OnePlus 7 Pro, Warp Charge 30 power adapter Warp Type-C Cable-Supports USB 2.0 Screen Protector (pre-applied), SIM tray ejector Quick start guide, safety information, transparent case Welcome letter, logo stickers But in my case, a Sandstone case was delivered as well, which is nice so you can switch from time to time. Personally I love the transparent case more. Now I can hear you thinking: but where’s the USB-C to headphone jack adapter? Indeed, it’s not delivered with it, which is in my opinion a big no-go and a bad move. The OnePlus 6T was OnePlus’ first device to not have the headphone jack, and thus they delivered a adapter with it. For me it’s a disappointing but understandable thing, looking from the perspective of a company. It’s probably to push the sales of Wireless Bullets and OnePlus Bullets USB-C and of course the USB-C to jack adapter. Still I’d have liked it to see a adapter getting delivered with it. This article also explained why OnePlus didn't deliver a adapter with it, because they have doubled the price of the adapter: https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/...e-adapter-oneplus-7-pro-doesnt-come-with-one/ Luckily, OnePlus still pre-applies a screenprotector (which is made of plastic). Then here some images from the device after having it unpacked: At this side you can see the volume buttons and the curved glass: At the bottom of the phone we can find a USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 port, which was earlier known (and how others know it) as USB 3.0: Here at the left you can see the noisecancelling microphone and the 16MP pop-up camera: So this is the back of the phone in direct light. As you can see it's a fingerprint magnet. Glad the phone wears a TPU case! Also what you directly notice, is that it's made of glass. For me, coming from a OnePlus 3, this is a pretty big con. It's fragile and expensive to repair, while there are only pros, which is that it feels premium, but also that it most likely gives you slightly better signal strength. But in general you barely see it, luckily enough. And then the alert-slider, which is one of my favourite features of OnePlus phones: Because the forum only allows 20 images per post maximum. Check all the photos here in their original size: https://anonymouswp.stackstorage.com/s/E1IYyaDfYN8yDo8 It is also noticeable and interesting to see how the Warp Charger differs from the Dash Charger in size. This is also the case for the Warp Cable and Dash Cable, but way less noticeable. Left is the Dash Charge cable, and the right one is the Warp Charge Cable. These were my first 3 parts. I'll keep working on the full review and post those in the upcoming days/weeks!
