It’s the latest Android phone from the Chinese brand to outmaneuver its top-shelf competition by offering similarly high-end power and features, but at a consumer-friendly lower price point.
Underneath the bright, HDR10+ screen are Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 chipset, a hefty 4,000mAh battery that consistently powered us through a full day, and up to 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM – that latter spec is actually more than you need from a phone in 2019, so the 8GB version is just fine.
It’s close to Google Pixel 3 and Huawei P30 Pro quality, even if it's not the best camera phone out there, and we found the new 3x telephoto and ultra-wide lenses more useful than last year’s dual-lens camera with only a 2x optical zoom.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is closer to delivering everything you want from a flagship phone than any previous OnePlus handset – but for this reason it also no longer fits into the budget or mid-range categories.
Its bezelless 6.67-inch display is only half the story.
We experienced smoother motion when watching TV and playing games, and also found that simply scrolling web pages looked better.
