    heres my short review.

    My favorite Feature about the OnPlus is definiteley the Display! I was unsure if it would be worth the price compared to the OnePlus 7 - but it it. The 90hz is just amazing and i dont want to miss it. Playing Pokemon Go or even any other normal App, is so much fluid and great quliaty, never noticed on my old device, always though the app itself has that poor performance. Also the Warp Charge has me change my behavour to charge my phone. It’s not neccessary over night – just plug it in when to need and wait a few minutes, or even a half. First time i used it, I used it, i was superb shocked how fast it charges. The last thing to mention is the speed of the device, everything you do, it does extremeley fast. Switching between Apps, using the device in generell is a very good experience - thanks to the amount of RAM, you old apps never close! It has a clean software and much hardpower power, but also contains some feature you are missing from other flagship devices, like Zen Mode or Fnatic Mode for Gaming.

    I hope there coming even more software improvements to the Oxygen OS (RCS compatibility for all Carriers). Sending Feedback and participate into Surveys is a very good way and even I was contacted for feedback from a dev, though I have the device only a few days for now. I'm looking forward to more minor tweaking and Betas to make it even a better experience.

    1:I love the screen for video watching and web browsing, but chrome experience is not good enough on Android compare to iOS which is wired.
    2: The wide angle lens is probably one of my most wanted feature on any smart phone. Traveling it with it is blessed.
    3: Warp charging, the most necessary feature on a smartphone these day. As user habit changes where people won't charge their phone at night. This is DOPE [e]1f525[/e].
    Improvement in system wide is still a long way to go. Huawei had announced some programing app that improve system speed and capacity, I think it's a very sustainable strategy! Oneplus plz find a way to beat Huawei some how on system wide.

    Oneplus 7 this is the best phone I've ever used , the compatibility between the software and hardware makes this phone super awesome. I like the Oxygen OS , it provides a smooth experience without the bloatwares. This is phone is very fast.
    If there was an always on display , then it would make easier to know the notification. The outline of the screen can be lit whenever there is a notification. And there should be more customization in the app layout.

    1.Alert slider- the tiny little slider on the right side is very conveniently placed. It comes very handy when I’m in a hurry and I’m rushing to class I can quickly turn the slider up and I know that my phone wouldn’t ring.

    2.Oxygen OS - it is super smooth. The gestures are very intuitive. The added level of customizability helps make the experience unique. Small features like even choosing the accent color of the OS give it a nice personal touch. The multitasking gestures of switching between apps is very fluid and fast. Software is one of the most crucial parts of the phone and OnePlus has nailed it. Zenmode is very helpful when you want to stay away from your phone specially when you’re studying.

    3.screen – its pretty good that this phone has a 6.41 inch optic amoled screen and is still comfortable to hold. This screen is gorgeous. It’s a super crisp display and it is color accurate as well. The option to change the temperature, color mode is very nice. The waterdrop notch gives a very minimal and clean look to the phone. Its very good for watching videos as well. The stereo speaks paired with this screen gives an awesome video watching experience. Its nice to have an amoled display of this quality at this price, where phones at this price are usually using LCDs

    The one improvement I would like to say that OnePlus improves their camera software a little bit, the cameras are very capable on the OnePlus 7 but sometimes the colors are a bit over popped. If this is improved OP 7 will be an all rounder device.

    My favourite features about OnePlus 7 Pro would be the 90 Hz display which is best used when surfing through reddit. another feature would be the curved display as it gives a premium look to the phone and feels good in the hands. I also enjoy the on-screen fingerprint which is really fast and super secure.

    My one suggestion for improvement will be about the charging indicator as a person doesn't know if the phone is fully charged or not without picking up the phone.

    meme that best describes the phone:-

    Coming from having a Samsung Galaxy S6 for a number of years I felt it was finally time to take the upgrade option offered by my carrier. I was tired of laggy games and slowly diminishing battery life and the bloatware Samsung like to put on their phones. I had options of the S 10e or the lovely OnePlus 7 for the same price. The pro was tempting but sadly a little outside my price range. I have had my 7 for a little over 72 hours now and will never go back to Samsung!

    The first thing I noticed was the overall quality of the phone itself and the packaging it came in. Getting a free phone case with my new handset? Unheard of! The phone itself feels solid and comfortable in my hand, very satisfying. The camera is also highly impressive as well. A massive upgrade to my previous phone.

    The second thing I fell in love with was the OxygenOS. Smooth, lacking in bloatware and very clean in design, a joy to use. Further, the tools for copying over my settings from my old phone worked perfectly. Software-as-a-service perfection.

    Finally, the biggest surprise was the OnePlus community app I found on here. Seeing this vibrant group of people interacting with eachother and the creators of the products we all use is great to see.

    Thank you for converting me to OnePlus within minutes of starting up my new phone.

    According to my needs and interests my favourite hardware features of a phone are good camera, good ROM and RAM, long battery life, in-display fingerprint sensor and my favourite software is SoC 855 and see this new amazing OnePlus 7 Pro holds all these features with a good price tag. It makes me excited and happy.
    I thinks of one improvement that OnePlus could make is keeping their smartphones in affordable prices which would ultimately makes OnePlus sellings higher than 'Xiaomi' and it could even makes it no.1 brand of #India.
    The best meme which could fit this product is will be-- Dear #Xiaomi, OnePlus did the math or like
    Oneplus- dear Xiaomi, whose your father.
    Xiaomi- Lei Jun
    OnePlus- No Your fathers are, Pete Lau and Carl Pei
    Thank you!

    I think OnePlus will maintain the same price but maybe not for the pro version. Its becoming a flagship than a flagship killer compared to the parent company oppo

    OnePlus7pro is the best phone in this present era of smart phones . The 90hz is really explicit, the curved infinity screen is yet another amazing feature. The finger print scanning is extremely fast and catchy with the graphics interface.
    The pop up camera works perfectly awesome with a seamless flow during the capture of a selfie as well as for the face recognition.
    Regarding the camera the pixel quality is so breath taking for the selfie and for the rear, the pro mode is even better with the better interface of vibrating mode while adjusting the various photography settings.
    Water splash and dip proof adds to the attribute and becomes the cherry on top for OnePlus7pro. The soothing gradient colour of nebula blue glass highlights the phone's attractiveness to the next level.
    The Dolby sound effect is yet another feature that needs to be mentioned with a high scale. The battery charging is so fast and the charge is retained for more than 1 and a half day. That's really overwhelming for a phone with these many awe inspiring features.
    Due to all these astonishing features the SAR value is a bit high for the head and exclusion of 3.5 mm Jack is wonderful as its a safety precaution made by OnePlus7pro that users will use the wireless earphones so they are free of SAR. Hats off for this thought of safety measure.

    OnePlus 7 Review: Maintaining the “Affordable Flagship” Legacy
    OnePlus has become quite a reliable name in the smartphone industry. Year after year, the company has improved on its products and has gradually gained success. This time around though, things are different. While most smartphone makers brought mini or compact versions of their flagship phones, OnePlus took an opposite route. It launched a minor update to last year’s model, but also introduced a more high-end ‘Pro’ model with all the latest features one would expect on a proper flagship smartphone.

    Now we have already tested the OnePlus 7 Pro, which definitely feels and qualifies for flagship material, however, we had some mixed feelings about it. Then there is also the OnePlus 7. A simple update to the OnePlus 6T featuring a very similar design with minor upgrades on paper. But at a starting price of Rs 32,999, the company has shrewdly launched this cheaper than the launch price of the outgoing model, which was launched at Rs 37,999.

    The design is similar to the OnePlus 6T, even the overall dimensions, and the weight. However, the glass back feels a bit more premium. Also, there are now two new colour options- Mirror Gray and a gorgeous looking Red finish. The latter is only available in the 8GB RAM + 256GB memory option. Also, OnePlus has now put stereo speakers on the phone, one above the display and one on the bottom edge. The other minor difference is that the dual camera module at the back now houses the LED flash. Just like the Pro, there is no waterproof certification, but some sort of water repellent coating which should keep it safe from minor water splashes.

    OnePlus is using the same 6.41-inch AMOLED display too and sadly there is no 90Hz fast refresh rate as the high-end model. Nonetheless, it is an appealing panel with nice colours and contrast. The in-display fingerprint scanner also makes a comeback.

    The OnePlus 7 doesn’t have a lot of flashy features like the pop-up selfie camera or a triple camera setup like the Pro. But what you get is a really powerful smartphone at a justified price. Mind you, this is the most affordable handset you can buy today powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. Compared to the 845, the new chipset is significantly better as it is manufactured using a 7nm fabrication process, making it less power hungry but all the more powerful. The company has played safe and launched only two memory variants, 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. Makes sense as there are already three variants of the Pro. Also, OnePlus is making use of UFS 3.0 standard for the internal storage making the overall read and write speeds faster.

    Performance is top notch. I have been using the 8GB RAM model and needless to say, but OnePlus has one of the snappiest phones on the market. The OnePlus 7 is no exception. With the all mighty powerful hardware, combined with the fairly clean OxygenOS, the experience has been flawless. Never once did I face any lags, slowdown or app crashes. Multitasking is a breeze, the on-display fingerprint scanner has improved, and the face unlock is uncannily fast, at least in proper lighting.

    Gaming is super smooth and I had no hiccups playing PUBG Mobile at the highest settings. It does get a little warm after say a 30-minute gaming session, but that is only if you are sitting in a city like Delhi without an air conditioner. At the time of writing the review, the phone had received a new update which brought Fnatic Mode to the handset. This is a part of the Gaming Mode and once enabled, you get extra features during your gameplay sessions like Advanced DND, Enhance process regulator and Network enhancement. All of these extra enhancements felt more like a placebo to me.

    OnePlus’ new Zen Mode also makes way to the OnePlus 7 which disables all functions of the phone for 20 minutes except to make and receive emergency calls, and take photos. This is basically so the user can take a break from the digital world and focus on other things in life. It's a nice feature to have when you want to unwind yourself.

    The dual camera on the OnePlus 7 now includes a 48-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 wide-angle lens with PDAF and OIS paired to a 5-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture lens. At the front, you get the same 16-megapixel f/2.0 camera that was on the OnePlus 6T. The primary camera is a pretty good update thanks to the high-resolution sensor. The 48-megapixel sensor offers 0.8-micron pixel size but thanks to pixel binning it goes up to 1.6-micron.

    Shots taken in the regular Photo mode results in sharp 12-megapixel photos and you can get full resolution photos using the Pro mode. In broad daylight, pictures offer a decent amount of detail, but as soon as you move to artificial light, colours seem undersaturated. Focusing is fast and quick though, despite not having the laser-assisted autofocus from the OnePlus 7 Pro. It can struggle a bit in low light though. Speaking of which, low light performance is not bad at all, and with the night mode enabled, you do get brighter photos. The only issue is, you can spot noise when you zoom into your pictures.

    You can shoot 4K 60fps videos with the primary camera but there is a 5-minute limit when you shoot at this high resolution. If you lower the frame rate to 30fps, you can go as much as 10 minutes. You can also shoot slow-motion videos- 1080p at 240fps and 720p at 480fps. Video quality is good enough and seems stable thanks to OIS. It can, however, struggle to get the right colours and exposure. As for the front camera 16-megapixel camera, selfies look above average with low-light selfies being soft and lacking details.

    The battery on the OnePlus 7 hasn’t witnessed any change, so you get the same 3700mAh unit with the same 20W charger. Notably, the company has dropped the Dash Charge branding. Battery life on the handset is great, as you can easily go through all day with about 25-30 percent left at the end of your day. Of course, that number drops if you play a lot of PUBG like me. But thanks to the fast charging, the handset can hit 50 percent in just half an hour and full 100 percent in just an hour and 15 minutes.

    I absolutely love the OnePlus 7, especially that flashy red paint job. It doesn’t feel as fragile as most glass-clad smartphones out there, especially the OnePlus 7 Pro with its frosted finish at the back and curved display at the front. Of course, that is a personal choice.

    Realistically, at its price you get a great display, flawless performance, long battery life along with fast charging and smooth lag free software experience. Unlike its elder sibling, this one is more of a conscious effort from the company to maintain its “affordable flagship” image. I think this is a perfect device for someone who demands the best performance at a sub-Rs 40,000 budget

    Things I like about one plus
    I upgraded my OnePlus to OnePlus 7
    1)The camera is great.
    2)The ram management is just wow
    3)The bloatware free software

    I wish the camera ran with both eis+ois simultaneously (like the pixel 3)

    Seems like parents have their favorite kid
    You know what I am taking about

    I got OnePlus 7 pro few days ago. First of all I was impressed of display, with those full screen without hole and notches. Than the speed of the display smashed my senses, it was unbelievable. I got impressed even more, when I start to read book in the bed, the light is so pleasant and dimm, not seen such a glory before. Next thing that impressed me is a sound, it's loud and clear I compared to my p30 pro and OnePlus 7pro beat it and smash it, now it is a pure joy to watch videos on the phone and use internal speakers. About what to improve, in OnePlus 7 I only missed IR blaster, it's a nice feature to have.

    to be honest I love this phone. it has everything that is required. I loved the looks , camera , music , the touch is smooth , battery power is excellent and display is quite user friendly. the only issue is that at times it does not supports few apps ( don't know why). like the themes in wallpaper does not work in my mobile.it crashes all the time. but still I would rate this one 10 by 10.[e]1f60a[/e][e]1f60a[/e][e]1f60a[/e][e]1f60a[/e][e]1f618[/e][e]1f618[/e][e]1f618[/e]
