OnePlus 7 Pro – Everything You Need To Know Right Now!

OnePlus 7 Pro – Everything You Need To Know Right Now!


good people say hello to the OnePlus 7
Pro the company’s flagship smartphone for 2019 actually I think I should put
some asterisks are on that statement because you never know they might
actually come out with a OnePlus 7t or the 7t Pro later this year let’s just you
know what let’s just say that the 7 Pro is OnePlus its flagship smartphone to
date they brought some interesting additions to this device like the pop-up
front-facing camera resulting in this notch list display an
additional ultra wide-angle lens a beautiful AMOLED display with a high
refresh rate and some more now please don’t consider this as a full dedicated
review but rather consider it as an informative one so that you’re aware of
what’s really new with the 7 Pro and when we spent a couple of days with this
device and I like doing smart reviews more like consumers so you know expect
our long term of you in the next few months so here’s everything that you
need to know about the oneplus 7 pro but first let’s take a quick look at our
sponsor the lik tech 2 360 air cooler from Animax now comes in this gorgeous
white finish to give your PC a bit of character the EF one pump delivers
superior cooling performance it’s both Intel and AMD socket compatible and it
features RGB lighting learn more about it down below alright so I just want to
address something right out of the way and that’s the size of the 7 Pro it’s
huge guys in fact it’s bigger than the 6t and I was struggling to hold that
phone comfortably so if you’re in the same boat as I am you’re gonna have to
get used to this it’s a 6 point 6 7 inch AMOLED display that now boasts a
resolution of 31 20 by 1440 so quad HD plus instead of the full HD Plus on the
6t so for you pixel geeks out there this is a welcoming bonus oh and the cherry
on top of that is that it now features a refresh rate of 90 Hertz so navigating
through the UI is a bit more responsive and fluid and if you game a lot on your
smart phone this will change everything it’s not 120 Hertz as good as the razer
phone – but I’ll take it over the standard 60 Hertz
now I do need to point out that the edges of the display are curved on both
sides and honestly I do feel like it’s a bit more aggressive than the Galaxy S10
it’s more reflective and actually quite distracting and watching content
especially in good blinding situations so do keep that in mind but other than
that this is a beautiful screen with awesome colors nothing to complain here
moving on to the pop-up camera I’m sure a lot of you have questions with regards
to the durability because it’s a motorized mechanism that pops up and
down when you enable the front-facing camera mode now oneplus claims that
they’ve tested this over 300 thousand times to ensure that it’s consistent in
its operation they’ve even added rubber grommets around the module to prevent
debris from entering and stalling the motors they’ve also used the
accelerometer and the gyroscope to automatically retract the camera module
when it’s in freefall so for those of you who take selfies in the most extreme
conditions like you’re on the top of a mountain you’re trying to get that cool
angle and you’re trying to show it off and oops you just drop your phone
because a its first of all a huge phone so chances of here dropping it are a lot
higher you would have to worry about that anymore because the camera will
automatically retract and it will protect the lens module itself so that’s
nice I mean they’re trying everything that they can to make sure that
durability is intact and it’s certainly something that I have to validate myself
in the long-term abuse so do certainly stay tuned for that the one thing that I
do want to add on top of this is that oneplus is trying to step out from their
comfort zone they’re trying something new with the 7 Pro and I gotta give to
them because it’s certainly not the first phone to come out with this pop-up
camera implementation we’ve seen other brands like Oppo in the Asian markets
come out with the same technology but it’s a very first device at least in
North America to feature this cool implementation and I’m genuinely looking
forward to your thoughts about that what do you guys think about it
now the design hasn’t taken a shift from the 6t aside from the display and the
pop-up camera you still get the alert slider which is nice and it comes in
three colors mirror Gray almond and nebula blue which is the one that I have
over here and I love it quick note on the fit and finish the first thing that
I did notice is that this phone is heavy I mean obviously given its sheer size
you should expect that I’ll do love the frosted sort of matte
the back it’s certainly a lot better than the glossy surface on the galaxy s10 so it’s not a big of a fingerprint magnet compared to that device so that’s
nice and it gives you a subtle grip so it’s certainly nicer to hold my hand but
I would probably end up throwing a case on top of this because I do not want to
drop this phone I just don’t the 7 Pro has a triple
camera setup at the back just like the galaxy s10 so you get a 16 megapixel
ultra wide-angle lens a 48 megapixel standard lens but before you start
jumping with excitement keep in mind that the final image is in 12 megapixels
to the pixel binning now for those of you who are wondering what that is it’s
essentially grouping four by four pixels into one huge pixel that results in
better low-light performance lastly there’s an 8 megapixel telephoto lens
for that extra reach and at first glance the results do look pretty good I mean
there is detail the color reproduction is also really nice I don’t think you
can say anything terrible about the cameras coming out of the stock camera
app but having said all that I can’t wait to see what Android or third-party
developers can come out with especially since the Google camera mod on 6t was a
complete game-changer so I can’t wait to see that rollout on the 7 Pro it should
certainly step things up quite a bit now if you recall watching my OnePlus 6t
review I talked about how I had some issues with the in display fingerprint
scanner and that’s partly because it was first gen tech and it was actually a lot
more slower than a physical reader softer blades certainly helped improve
the accuracy and the responsiveness but it just wasn’t as fast as I’d like it to
be now what they’ve done with the 7 Pro is they’ve actually increased the
size of the scanner by 36% which actually results in a lot more accuracy
when it comes to reading your thumbprint or your fingerprint and having spent a
couple of days with this device it’s noticeably faster than the 6t so that’s
certainly a welcoming change I mean I can just do a simple tap on this device
and I’m automatically on the home screen or into my phone so that’s great taking
a look at the rest of the specs there’s nothing really underwhelming with the 7 pro
I mean you get the fastest SOC from Snapdragon coold buying a 10 layer
liquid cooling system that I’m really curious to test out since summer is
right around the corner here in Canada you also get it to 12 gigabytes of RAM
and up to 256 gigabytes storage that now uses the ufs 3.0
standard there’s also dual SIM support unfortunately no expandable storage and
the battery has been upgraded from 3700 milliamp hours to 4000 and it now
supports warped charge 30 this technology was introduced with the
oneplus sixty McLennan edition it’s a special edition device and what it
essentially does is that it charges your device from zero to 50% in just 20
minutes so it’s a lot faster than the fast charge method on the standard 60
they’ve also improved the haptic vibration motor as well as implement
dual stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos so when you’re consuming
content there is proper left and right channel separation so that’s certainly
welcoming change over the 6t now for those of you who embrace wireless
charging I’m really sorry to break this to you
but the oneplus 7 pro does not support that feature which is really
disappointing I was so expecting for them to include that on their
next-generation phone but that isn’t the case because I’m so spoiled by using or
charging my devices wirelessly and now I have to go back to plugging in the cable
on this device so yeah it’s just it sucks and to be frank having having
spoken to oneplus they mentioned that you know they feel like warp charge is
the most fastest and efficient way to top-up the battery on the 7 Pro because
it’s 4,000 milliamp hours and if you try to charge it wirelessly it just takes a
lot longer than warp charge and that’s kind of their argument for not implement
with a faster solution to charge the battery wirelessly they’ll certainly
look into adding it on the devices but for now it’s just not there and to wrap
things up there’s the software which has always been one of the main pillars of
oneplus foundation if you’re an existing one plus user you would know
what I’m talking about I mean it’s clean and super customizable and it constantly
gets updated which is awesome there are a couple of features that have been
added to the OS namely built-in screen recording which does not have any limits
like other third-party apps that you’d have to pay to unlock you can choose
your desired resolution and bitrate and I do see myself taking advantage of this
feature in the long term the other feature is called Zen mode and I really
like this one because you know we’re all tied down to our smart
in our everyday lives and it’s sometimes a distracting factor if you’re trying to
have a conversation with someone so what does n mode does is that locks you out
of the device for 20 minutes straight so you won’t be able to access your device
like you know checks your social media accounts or just do the things that
you’re normally able to do I mean you can make emergency phone calls and take
pictures but other than that it’s launched I think this is a great feature
because it helps you focus on other things in life which I personally do
value as well so yeah kudos one plus for including that so with all of that out
of the way how much does the OnePlus 7 pro cost well it starts at six hundred
and seventy dollars and you can obviously configure it all the way up to
$750 for the Specht out talking abouts of RAM and doing it 56 kilobytes of
storage so certainly not cheap guys and I really want to know thoughts about
that in the comments down below do you think it’s too expensive or do you think
it’s a great value for the features that you’re getting because personally
speaking if I take a step back and look at one plus as a brand they were known
for making amazing smart phones for less than $500 they’ve eaten forms for less
than 400 ollars back in the day but now they certainly break the barrier a $600
barrier with the 7 Pro and they’re trying to compete with the flagship
smartphones out there like the Galaxy S10’s and the ones from LG so you could
either take it in a positive way or negative way it’s certainly a lot
cheaper than the Galaxy stem for sure because it’s not $1000 and that’s great
but you know when you look at the phone like the pixel 3a that was just launched
last week it basically offers some the core features that you really need on an
Android smartphone for $400 so if you’re looking for just core functionalities
there are other phones for a lot less in the market right now and I think the 7
pro stays somewhere in the middle I certainly have to test it out
extensively to give you guys my full thoughts on this device because I could
end up running into a lot of issues like I did with the 6t’s so who knows we’ll
see definitely stay tuned for the long term of you I also do want to quickly
talk about the oneplus 7 because that is something that a lot of you guys were
looking forward to as well now think of it this way the 7 is just
an incremental upgrade over the 60 you’re just getting updated specs in
terms of your SOC your storage capacity is now operated
from when one 23.0 standard and that’s pretty
much it now from what I’ve been told the one plus seven is only available to buy
in select countries so in the United States I think it’s just gonna be the 6t
and the 7 Pro which are the two product stack up for the rest of 2019 so I hope
you learned everything about the 1 plus 7 Pro if you’re interested in anything
particular that you wanted me to test on this device definitely let me know the
comments down below and I’ll make sure to include them in my long term review
I meet with hundred connects thank you so much for watching stay tuned for more
smartphone content because it’s gonna get too hot I’m signing off and I’ll see
you guys in the next one

    Does anyone know how fast this would charge on a standard usb-c pd port like Google uses on their pixels?

  • JoOnDy Bapaylo says:

    No thanks 1+ they give good things but 669$ definitely no at least that ll make 1+6 less value wish is an amazing phone but wut they did now they broke wut 1+ is known for

  • daywallker19 says:

    I hate that everyone is hating on one plus for making something more expensive. Yes it's supposed to be a flagship phone "killer" but you do realize it's like $500 less than flagship phones right? I personally think it would make a great buy, if you want a cheaper phone the 6t still exists, you're just not gonna get these specs in a cheaper device.

  • If possible to test and comment here; how is the day to day battery life vs the 6T? Bigger battery, but also more energy usage from the screen i would guess. Does it plan out or is the 4000mah better in the long run?

  • For that price, I'd rather buy the Galaxy s10e, that has a headphone jack, miscro-SD expansion, IP68 certification AND wireless charging! NExt time Oneplus, next time.

  • Спасибо, пацаны, за один из первых обзоров на руках в прекрасном качестве, лайк прожимаю автоматом

  • IVAYLO VELIKOV says:

    Great job! Very interesting and professional review like always. What about the call quality and sound quality (listening to music with earphones and without)?

  • CountCarbsNotCals says:

    I love the pop-up front cam, this way i don't have to tape over it and i know when its in use or not. Seems cheaper than Samsung. And really happy its not Google!

  • Display definitely is amazing in every way. Finally flagship with no notch or hole nonsense. 90Hz is awesome addition. Stereo speakers and camera improvements are definitely welcomned.

  • "Everything you need to know right now!"

    The "flagship killer" will be on sale May 17 at a flagship price, starting at $669. That's all you need to know- it's no longer a flagship killer. It's a flagship phone. Next.

  • Pixel 3a isn't just a phone with core functionality. it has one of the best, if not the best camera on a smartphone. at that price it's killer

  • Shreyas Aaron says:

    What if companies gave expandable storage by removing the sim card slots(since there are e-sims)? Many people might not need expandable storage but what if they saved some space by removing the slots and gave a headphone jack instead?

  • I thought the price was a little high for a OnePlus phone, but they hit so many QoL features that I can’t wait for.

    A huge reason I’m going with this phone is because of their new trade in program. I got quoted $470 for my 64gb iPhone X which is $140 more than Best Buy and means it will only cost me $200 to make the upgrade (before their 10% student discount).

    I’m really going to miss wireless charging, and feel the size increase/curved edges will be a bit to get used to, but man I can’t wait for the 90hz 800nit AMOLED goodness

  • alksdjf;alsdjf says:

    For $1000 I expect all the Samsung gimmicks and bullshit, not worth it, not sure why 1+ think they're in the leagues of Samsung and can demand these kind of prices now.

  • Richard Richard says:

    Good value compared to other flagships, but why for Canadians, it comes with extra $100 CAD kick it the stomach. I thought Google was bad. It should be $899 CAD, not $999.

  • so weird ppl complaining about the fingerprint scanner on the 6t. guess it's hit or miss cuz with mine i have NONE of the probs ppl have mentioned. mine is just as instant as this phone and never fails. odd

  • Hi! Could you please tell us if the screen shimmering is severe on low brightness? Is there DC dimming in the options?

  • EasyGoingDude 99 says:

    Hey man thanks for the video.. Could you please talk about the audio situation more in the long term review? No one seems to give a damn about it anymore. No mention of a dongle in the box to plug in headphones either.

  • michael meng says:

    3:15 "dropping your phone on a mountain is now fine because the phone will retract the camera when it falls"

  • test the speed of ufs 3.0
    (ps i don't know how do you test it out, but I just want to know the difference between ufs 2.0 not just saying fast…

  • I personally don't understand why would i charge my phone wirlessly.

    It takes forever, it heats my phone, and i can't even really move it while it's charging. I think it could be a great thing for other devices, like smartwatches, smart wearables and stuff, but i think it has no place to exist on a smartphone.

    I'm used to having my phone charge in 40 min, and i can't see myself downgrading to hours without a good reason. Then again, it could be a great thing if you scarcely use your smartphone, but that's not many users nowadays

  • Steven Corbo says:

    I'm torn because I love this phone but it doesn't have a headphone jack or expandable storage and although the storage seems to be adequate internally I'm not ready to embrace companies that do not offer expandable storage

  • Keerthi Varman says:

    Phone looks great and the price is competitive when look to their competitors in the flagship range of 1000 dollars

  • I wish you would not use this bullshit BuzzFeed trendy titles. "10 things you need to know about this RIGHT NOW". Can't you see how ridiculous that sounds? I love your channel, I love what you do, but you're better than that, this is just silly. No one NEEDS to know shit about this phone, probably most of us won't ever buy it, so we seriously don't NEED to know anything, specially not RIGHT NOW. You're so good with words on video but then you completely vomit this crap over the title. This is as obnoxious as walking down the street and someone stopping you and shoving a journal up your face "YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW", or walking into a store and trying to order something while they keep yelling how you NEED to know RIGHT NOW about the lactose stuff you're intolorent to.

  • My only real Gripe is the lack of a 3.5mm jack I use my phone to listen to music a lot and i wish companies would at least make it an option i don't mind my phone being a couple un noticeable millimeters thicker.I just don't want to use crappy bluetooth buds or headphones.

  • I see it natural for One+ to bump up their prices since their main competitors have done it already (Samsung, Apple, Huawei etc). Anyhow I also see that it is natural that the prices will come down eventually. What I don't like is that the manufactures presents a new phone every year, that is just ridiculous, especially when the new phones only have small improvements. WTH, people are still using OP3T, and are still satisfyed with their phone.

  • Cerberus icon says:

    I have to admit I'm super disappointed it has a curved display. I've broken my note 9 5 times since launch because of the Curve. I was really looking forward to getting away from a display that easily breaks on a High spec phone

  • Pocket Knife Hobbies says:

    so the next time you drop your phone off of a mountain trying to take a selfie, the camera will be fine

  • You're Canadian like me. Please note that its $999 (upmarked from conversion) and it's like that in a lot of other countries. You can get both the S10 and OP7 Pro for the same price. You should be talking about this

  • In my country the 7 cost 435$ for 8+256,and the 7 pro start at 581$ for 6+128,iPhone xs max cost 2000$ so the 7 is a great value😂😂😂😂

  • Ivan Pimentel says:

    I'm pretty sure that they will not release a "T" version this year because if they do, then they are releasing a total of 6 phones this year and that's insane.

  • Franz Macalintal says:

    Water durability they have this teaser when drop on bucket of water.

    And saying water resistant is expensive so they made something much better and cheap

  • Eduardo Velazquez says:

    Big let down by not having wireless charging. I have an iphone xs max for 6 month now which has wireless charging. I have NEVER use it but it makes me feel good to say that it does have it 🙂

  • Ι am using the Op5 and I have 0 reasons to upgrade right now so I will just wait a year if not more to see how the hole pop up thing is going

  • Damn that thing looks sexy! I love the blue shade here and from the video I think it looks better than my Samsung S9 in blue. I'd kill for a 4000 mAh sized battery.

    Sad that OnePus is a slit-eye moron company and I cannot justify giving these subhumans money.

  • jerry caughron says:

    On the One Plus 7 pro is there a maintenance feature? I can't seem to locate one?? On the Samsung s10 plus there is a device care… there is a feature where you can clean the system.

  • Even if money was no object I'd buy this over any other phone. The fact that it's cheaper than every other flagship is just a bonus imo. I'm gonna miss call screening, though.

  • Joe Hernandez says:

    The pro is their flagship understand that this isn't their mid range phone. A flagship at 670 instead of three current 1000. The normal one plus 7 is cheaper. The one plus 7 pro is to get more attention.

  • I am really impressed by the One Plus 7 Pro. I won't be buying it but the upgrades to it are pretty awesome. I actually like the rising selfie camera. (:

  • angelo lopez says:

    I wanted to get it,
    I think is time to chance my phone (HTC u11)
    The lack of sd card and the big size is making me reconsider to keep waiting

  • Given the great specifications of this device as well as its great performane, software, display, and battery, I think it will be totally worth the money you pay for it. Keep in mind that if another company, such as samsung or Apple, were to build a device with the same features as those of OP7 Pro, they would have charged you over 1000 bucks. Thus, in my view, we should appreciate the pricing strategy of OnePlus company.

  • MobileTech Insight says:

    I picked the nebula blue up and I have to say that onrplus has just set a new flagship industry standard with the 90hrtz refresh rate.

  • BladeHunterHD says:

    Fun fact, this phone is only 3mm taller than the Note 9, so if you are comfortable when using a Note 9, then this phone will feel right at home too.

  • Panicky Khan says:

    THe op7 pro has no headphone, jack, no wireless charging, I personally dont like the pop up camera and is too expensive without these features

  • I'm looking forward to your long term review. I have been hearing quite a bit about the ghost presses and the camera not being as good as they claim.

  • Saurabh Parmar says:

    Why does your unit not have "48MP" written between the camera lenses, like all the other reviewers' units??

  • I wouldn't say a 600 series processor in the pixel 3a is a good core feature. 399 is great but how good is a phone with struggling performance over time due to inferior processor with just 4gb of ram? Not every phone will check everyone's box so it's case by case. More importantly we have options. I love OnePlus for what they do.

  • Arshad Siddiqui says:

    I ordered mine and its on its way. Guess I should watch loads of videos about it until then lol. (June 4th)

  • Biggest thing is lots of the time I charge my phone overnight. I don't care how fast it is, as long as it's full by morning. Wireless charging is nice for that.

  • Love my OnePlus 7 Pro
    The facial recognition is pretty fast and great in all lighting situations the fingerprint scanner is super fast, very fluid phone,
