dnagpaldg, Jun 6, 2019 : MY DAY, POWERED BY THE ONEPLUS 7 PRO OR HOW THIS DEVICE INTEGRATES INTO MY WORKFLOW I wake up in the morning with the alarm on the phone. My phone is low on battery, so it put it on charge and get ready for college. Takes me about 20 minutes and I leave the room, phone in hand, charged enough to last 3 hours or so of classes. I'm sitting in a lecture hall while the professor shows lecture slides. I see a question and use the 3x zoom to click a picture of it. Its lossless, so I get a great picture and I can tally it with my class notes later on. The guy on my side notices that I've got a OnePlus 7 Pro, and asks to play around. He's awestruck when he sees how fast my fingerprint sensor is. He asks me about the curved display, and I do the one thing I like the most about this phone - I open up a PDF and put the phone on landscape. Then I just scroll as the curved edges make it look like paper is coming out of the device! My wide-eyed acquaintance has seen enough of my flex, so I go back to reddit. I need to check the time, I just lift my phone. Ambient Display is unbelievably useful. Halfway through the third class of the day, someone's phone rings in the class. Anxiously I put a finger on the alert slider without getting my phone out of my pocket: I remembered to keep it on vibrate. There is time to kill now, I have a free hour. I catch up on social media, going through photos on the QHD+ screen. I realise that reading is much faster and I can keep scrolling through text now whilst reading it - the 90Hz display never disappoints me. Now my friends come out of their class, and we're sitting in the cafeteria. I record random boomerang videos on my phone. My friends taunt me for being on my phone too much, so I put it on Zen Mode and then curse them as they start staring at their phones now that mine is useless We've got nothing better to do, so I decide to play some music on my phone. Stereo speakers + Dolby = good, loud music. Its obnoxious to do that in the cafeteria, so I make sure to keep the volume low. My phone has given me about 4 hours of SOT now but it's about to die, so I go to the library to charge it up. Once you're in the library you might as well study, so another round of Zen Mode follows. After that, I open the phone and start opening a ton of apps just because my workload is scattered across all of them. Whatsapp to catch up with a friend, some PDFs that I downloaded from the college academic portal, the EBook that I need to transfer to my laptop is getting uploaded to Google Drive, Slack for my technical groups, the community app to see replies on my review, going through my emails, and the perennial Instagram. Oh, and there's Spotify in the background. I seldom realise it but the phone has never lagged or given me an App Not Responding since I got it. Maybe, just maybe, I should start carrying my laptop around more. It's evening now, so i just go to the beach. I'm in Goa, I'm never too far from one xD . As I watch the sunset, I record a timelapse of the sunset. The beach is a picturesque place, and I have a good camera on my hand. There's 4K@60FPS, but I'd use the 1080p@60FPS instead. Even though I have 256 GB of storage, what I do not have is a 4K display. I play it back and the clarity of the recorded audio amazes me more than the video. I have come to expect good video out of OnePlus devices but its exhilarating to get this quality with such small microphones. I come back to my room later, and do what any sane person does - Netflix There's HDR on the device, but it shows up only when the content supports it. Fortunately for me, I'm watching Daredevil and HDR does wonders to that show! Stereo speakers are a great replacement for earphones when I'm alone, but then my roommate comes into the room so I need to use the earphones. I miss the good old headphone jack a lot or not at all depending on how much battery is left on my wireless earphones. Before going back to sleep, I look at my chats and other apps for any updates. I play around with the phone, killing time before going back to sleep. I've got Subway Surfers on the phone, so I open it up. The Fnatic Mode notification comes up. A brief 5 minute run has somehow turned into half an hour wasted, and when I close the app I see all the notifications that I had missed.
