    For years, I’ve been recommending OnePlus phones as the best value you can get, period.

Let’s see what it means when OnePlus goes Pro in the OnePlus 7 Pro Review!

    I trust your review man but most reviewers have different opinion about the phone. Do you still stand with this initial review or your mind has changed?

      Absolutely......i'd say this chap giving this review was not a Oneplus fan boy.....from the brilliant and one of the few 90Hz screens it offers, lightning quick charging, quickest embedded fingerprint scanner, fastest and newest processor, largest amount of DRAM more than double most other phones, first and currently only smartphone with a UFS 3.0 storage module. Unique and quick front facing camera para-scope, delicious sound, for starters...I'd say the camera is the only thing that is just very good. Oh... I forgot the price.

                  I agree with pretty much everything you said. Still, I watched this on my 7 Pro and it's the best phone I've ever had, no regrets

                    Can you do a re review of the camera with 9.5.7 update?
                    Camera is WAY better now and fixes all the issues you mentioned

                      "The simple fact is that a lot of folks buy phones based on the camera these days." If that is the main reason to upgrade why not just buy a real camera?

                                  just wondering if the galaxy s10 plus would be the same price which one is better

                                    OnePlus 7 Pro is very expensive in my country. The price for the base model is the same as the price for a base S10+.

                                    Samsung also have a much much better customer service + official support for VOLTE, Samsung Pay...

                                    BUT the slow charging speed is holding me back from buying

                                      Camera of this phone significantly improved after recent software updates. There is the gcam option for you to tap into as well ( it significantly improves nighttime Photography and portrait shots).

                                        You should revisit the camera after the 9.5.7 update.... Great work on OP's part. It's like a different camera now.

                                            Imho, the Amber Red is still there best looking one plus. Nonetheless, would you say that the one plus 6 was a better phone a year ago compared to the competition than this new 7pro?

                                                5 years down the road is fine however they would not support the software for 5 years for sure. 2 years at max. This is preventing me from buying this phone as I do not change my phones very frequently

                                                      Very honest review, I would miss ip68, wireless & no micro s/d support. 90hz display, warp charging, speed demon are things I like. Still, at 750.00, 12gb's & 256gb's of storage not to shabby!

                                                        Hi Sir, Waiting for your One Plus 7 and the Asus Zenfone 6 review.
                                                        When is it coming?

                                                          Being that I've always been a name brand guy buying only Samsung and Apple I can say I'm happy with this phone. Them again I'm not a fan of wireless charging yet, I've never comes close to filling my phones up storage wise, and I own three pairs of Bluetooth headsets missing those features isn't a big deal to me.

                                                          The camera to me is fine, I'm not a professional photographer, although the last between shots is noticable, though I don't take a bunch of photos compared to allot of people so it doesn't bother me to much.

                                                          Where it does make up though is in what I feel the most important aspects speed and screen. Being able to watch videos without a notch or hole punch, and being able to switch between apps quickly are more important than the camera that I use maybe twice a day.

                                                          OxygenOS has also become my favorite as with Samsung's design language hasn't really changed, only tweaked so like iOS it became stale. Also within my first two weeks owning the de ice I've gotten three OTA updates which shows they're on the ball with software.

                                                          Everyone's usage is different though, so this phone isn't for everyone. I do enjoy it, my girl is slowly coming around, but she prefers simplicity, so naturally she's still eyeballing the S10 but is atleast giving this phone a shot.

                                                            OP needs to reboot their phone series and start back by making budget phones with the essentials like the headphone jack. I don't care for it all that much but other people certainly do. Their competition is beating them hard. Just to sell those bullets earbuds, they jeopardized their smartphone front. If they continue like this, they'll lose out to the competition and die out. We can't have that.

Yes, you can pick out some minor differences here and there but all in all camera quality has not improved that much since 2015.

If you just want a big 90hz display then go with the Oneplus. Everything else is minimal. I own both and it just depends on what you truly care about

There's no other channel that does tech videos like you do, really love all the subtle details that goes into these videos.
