TechnoMinute, May 20, 2019 : First Impressions: I bought the OnePlus one as my first android phone back in 2015 and I can still remember that feeling of awe. Well, again almost 5 years later the OnePlus 7 Pro has brought back that feeling of enthusiasm. Today I’m going to be talking about my first impressions of with the OnePlus 7 Pro. Alright, now while the OnePlus 7 Pro’s unboxing isn’t as extravagant as the OnePlus One’s was, however, it was still very clean. Inside the box, we get the documentation, then a clear TPU case, the phone itself, the warp charging block and a USB C cable for power. Now the first thing I noticed about the phone was that beautiful shimmery back. The OnePlus 7 pro does come in multiple colors, but in my opinion, the Nebula Blue is the best one. It has a somewhat iridescence to the overall feel, and a nice soft touch glass back. This honestly, has to be one of the best looking phones I have used to date. Moving on from here the next thing I noticed was that beautiful QHD 90-hertz display. I have never seen a device with animations so smooth. Now I don’t know how this will affect battery life in the Long run, but to be honest I might not mind charging multiple Times to keep this amazing display. Another great thing about the massive 6.6-inch display is how close to the edge the screen falls off. It literally wraps around the edge of the display, and because of that motorized camera there is no need for a notch or a hole punch, it truly is edge to edge. Gaming on this large 19:5:9 aspect ratio really is enjoyable, double with the high refresh rate everything seems seamless and incredibly smooth. Now I haven’t had too much time to test the long term performance and battery life of the phone while gaming, but I played asphalt 9 for at least 15 minutes and I experienced a one percent drain. If this any indication of the battery life, then it’s a good one. Now lastly I want to talk about the camera, not the performance but the motorized selfie camera. OnePlus isn’t the first one to make a motorized camera, the OPPO F11 also had a similar one, however, this is the first one I’ve used and I’m impressed. Again the theme of this video is durability in the long term, but for now, the camera is quiet and works seamlessly. I probably turned it off and on at least 20 times when I first used it. So thoughts. Well at first glance the OnePlus 7 pro, is clean, polished and very impressive. The beautiful AMOLED display coupled with the incredibly fast processor and seemingly decent battery life makes this a very well balanced phone. Now again I haven’t used it for that long, and a full review will be coming in the next few weeks, but as of right now I’m impressed. OnePlus you’ve done a killer job. Updated Impressions(5/29): So I've been using the OnePlus 7 Pro for a little more than a week and a half now, and I can gladly say that most of my initial impressions are holding up to be true. And while a full review is coming soon, I still wanted to update y'all on what's good and what need's work. Display: Starting off my favorite thing about the OP7 is still the display. I cannot believe how amazingly fluid everything feels, coupled with the OLED screen, this phone is just a joy to use. In fact, I pick it up even when I don't need to. It's just incredibly smooth, and using any other device feels simple, compared to this. Battery: Now on average I have been getting about 5hrs of on screen time, and at first this seemed a little small, but as each update has been going out, battery life seems to be getting better. While this may seem not so great, the charging speed is out of this world. Seriously, I was able to charge to 100% in just under an hour. And getting up to 50% took about 20 Min. I'm seriously impressed, which is why battery life isn't much of an issue. Camera: This is definitely the area that needs the most work, and while OnePlus has been doing a great job of pushing out updates for the camera, it still lacks in some areas. Firstly, portrait mode seems hit or miss, often taking a while to grab the object. When it does grab, edges are pretty accurate, however it feels like the photo was taken with an aperture of f/4 as the background is blurred but there isn't a lot of Bokeh. I really hope this is something that is fixed in a future update. From there the wide angle camera is really cool, however it lacks sharpness and dynamic range. It's not terrible by any standards, but it could be better. The telephoto lens is actually probably the most impressive. Photos are detailed, and the natural depth of field produced, is really pleasing to the eye. I haven't tested the video in depth too much, but my first impressions are good, I just wish we had video for the wide angle camera. Conclusion: So like I said, the full review is coming soon, stay tuned for that. However, in the time being the OP7 Pro is an incredible phone. If OnePlus can fix the battery and camera issues, I will definitely be switching to this phone as my main, from the iPhone 8 Plus. This is coming from someone who has mainly used Apple devices for the last few years.
