    As a fellow competitor in the 2nd phase I have to admit that the @Master_Micael review is very well written.
    I regret that I did not come up with some ideas on visualization and how to convey information.
    Unfortunately - this can't be changed. :(

    The only thing left for me to hope for is second place ;)

    Regarding the topic of device replacement, @YRJ is right. I have 3T for a long time and this year I was waiting for the 7Pro in an improved version of T.
    As it turned out, the basic model 7 had major changes, but still I'm very happy with my purchase.

    And that is all that matters. If the phone makes you happy and feel satisfied, then you have found your OnePlus ;)

    I have been reading lot of posts and articles debating the existence of 7T Pro, and honestly what does people expect OnePlus to do? The 7 Pro is already a great phone, so any improvements on top of that is a big plus (again that is just my opinion).

    OnePlus 7T needed those upgrades to keep up with the tough competition (the tables have turned and everyone is trying to be the OnePlus killer). Also, this is what OnePlus always did with the T varients, and it makes absolute sense. The competition already offers multi-camera setup, Snapdragon 855, plenty of RAM, AMOLED display with notch and fast charging. The 7T absolutely needed the boost to be one step ahead.

    You can still do those changes. It won't be considered for valuation but if it makes your review better for readers, then why not go ahead and give it the finishing touch?

    Everyone brings something different to their review and I for one appreciates the personal touch more than the traditional review approach (I would go and read a professional review if I needed that). I truly enjoyed the camera part in your review. It was filled with genuine every day pictures and I found it more beautiful and closer to reality than in any other review. All the best.

    Given the number of upgrade on the 7T, one would like to see some significant changes in the Pro series.
    But as you wrote, 7Pro is such a complete device that it did not require many modifications. Of course, the hardware specs are the best, but that's not what makes this phone so great.

    For me, the choice was only between 7Pro and 7T Pro. I can't convince myself of a notch, and the slide-out camera has its charm for me.
    After information that the Pro versions will have the new Android straight out of the box, counting on faster updates and longer software support, I chose the Pro version.
    The icing on the cake was information about competitions on our community forum

    It's probably not because you are new. My review was my first post in the forum and I had posted in starting point. I did saw the aggressive moderation/spam filter kicking in when I used certain words. Substituted what I thought is the culprit, and it let me post it. Not sure if such a filter exist for images. Images are supposed to be less than 2MB and 50 max per post (if I remember correctly), and I posted exactly 50 (it won't let you add more).

    The conditions of participation state that all corrections and modifications must be made before the deadline. I would not dare to see for myself that I violated these rules ;-)

    I am very pleased to hear that you liked my photos. To be honest, when I was 3T I didn't use it for everyday photography, because unfortunately the camera often couldn't cope with fast autofocus, catching a fast running child or photos from evening meetings at home.
    Since I have 7T Pro I take pictures more often and willingly in everyday circumstances, which translates into their examples in the review.
    Of course, it's not 100% perfect. Sometimes they come out exaggerated, blurry or poorly cropped, but I'm still more happy reaching for my smartphone to quickly take a few photos.
    I liked the night mode the most - you can get a lot of great shots that I wouldn't have thought of so far :-D

    Though not relevant here, I found some previous lab posts were missing pictures (probably hosted elsewhere and got removed). Atleast for lab posts, I would like to see images being hosted within the forum (and without any unfortunate incidents like this).

    @dsmonteiro can confirm. I think I read somewhere that modification are ok, but not going to be considered for evaluation (the post version before deadline will be considered). I'm using the app and it's quite difficult (atleast for me) to find and quote the exact post which clarified that. @YRJ had raised this question somewhere.

    I believe every entry is unique in its own way. There is no room for comparison as everyone's views are different. If all the entries were exactly the same the Lab would lose its purpose. Put you mind at ease.

    All the best for the results ;)
