    OIS CAN be turned on and off. It's a misconception that it can't.

      @4 gauge you're absolutely, unequivocally, WRONG about this, and need only do a simple Google search to see the damn factories Samsung OWNS to prove it!! Idiot

      @Heathaze _ YES,Sony DOES make screens for Sonysong phones,I've spoken with Sony a LONG time ago about this and the cameras and screens are built by SONY,sorry.

      @4 gauge I'm not sure where you heard that, but Sony most certainly does NOT make the screens on Samsung phones or on this One+... They do make the camera sensors. At least the main sensor.

      You forgot to mention about lacking a FM receiver in it like in my LG V-20,this is a very important feature because your not having to be connected to your data plan to listen to 🎶⬅music or news.
      This is a very nice smartphone,but I'm on the"fence"about this newest ONE+PLUS flagship not having a SD memory card capability,this is where ONE+PLUS kinda fell short with me.
      The cameras and screen on this phone is built by SONY and NOT samesung,even samesungs phones use SONY cameras and screens,I find that interesting.
      The ONE+PLUS+7 is tough to beat for the money,nearly half the price of the Sonysung S-10+and iPhone 10+.

    It should come with a headphone jack...wireless earphones or at least a doggle.

        The reason the fingerprint scanner doesn't work when the OnePlus 7 Pro is off is because the s10 has an always on display while the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn't have an always on display

          I'm going to grab one of these. Currently running the Note 9 and I'm really happy with everything except the camera, the Note can't take a photo of a moving image without blur, it just won't set the shutter speed to fast enough, I have hundreds of blurred images of my kid. Still images are generally really good, although Samsung over processes the crap out of them.

          The note 9 with the Pixel 3 camera would be the perfect phone, and before you say install Gcam, don't bother, been there with various versions and Gcam improves some things and makes other things worse.

          Awesome review by the way Erica, you cover everything very logically.

              The higher mega pixels is mostly beneficial if you enlarge your photos.

                  I'm cross-shopping the S10 plus and the OnePlus 7 Pro and the only thing I'm learning from all the reviews is that I want both.

                        The telephoto camera is a lie, the zoom is just the main sensor bumped up or not to 48 megapixels, that bottom camera is actually the portrait camra. Try it! Cover the bottom or middle camra to see what I mean, covering the bottom camra doesn't effect the zoom effect because it uses the main lense, I have found that out and at first I was really confused.

                          Horrible review. You claim that the One plus 7 is full featured, but all you demonstrated was the screen and camera. An iPhone 7 is comparable to that thing.

                            You did an amazing review. You're very detailed. Even some of the top phone reviewer leave out a lot of details and just give a vague quick over. I love how long and accurate and informative your review was. Very very nice and the way you talk is clear and crisp. You don't stutter or anything, a very crisp review.

                                When I tilt the phone side to side, I see a greenish leak from the edges. Is that normal?

                                          Hi Erica, I have an S10 Plus (Exynos variant) 8 GB 128 GB variant. PUBG has some frame drop issues with the Exynos variant.
                                          So I am a little biased towards the OnePlus 7 Pro 12 GB 256 GB.
                                          Camera and outdoor display visibility and clarity are also my criteria. So can't decide whether to sell my S10 Plus to purchase OnePlus 7 Pro.
                                          Please advise ASAP.
                                          P.S My previous device is OnePlus 5T, so you know where I am coming from.

                                            @Justin dee I disagree. I have had all the SG's since S2 and will not buy any S10 variant here in the UK again simply because the Exynos/Mali SoC is WAY slower in performance than Snapdragon/Adreno. Just look at the real world side by side comparison videos on YouTube as well as the benchmarks. It is night and day. I have just ordered the 1+7 pro. My last 3 Samsung phones were laggy as hell even doing the basics like making a call and browsing. I want my phone to be fast and fluid like an iPhone. That is what is most important to me. Why should the US and China get the fastest Samsung's and not the rest of the world?

I wouldnt care if it didn't even have a front camera at all. I just wish it had head phone jack but i geuss you cant have it all. I am a samsung guy for ever but i will buy the one plus 7 pro and live with a headphone jack and i will get a dongle for wired headphones and i will injoy that awesome display.

                                                                The telephoto lens is actually not being used when you take 3x shots. Its still using main camera, 48 megapixel one. Try to put your finger on telephoto lens and then shoot the image with 3x zoom, it still works whereas it shouldn't if it actually uses telephoto lens.

                                                                Great video. Thanks

And others, actual tech sites, have commented on VoLTE not working on AT&T or Verizon. Visual voicemail doesn't work yet on AT&T, either. I wanted to buy this phone, but there's no way I'm using it on a janky network (in my area- your area may vary, or maybe you don't travel).

Since it's that important for you to use a specific phone company then you can just buy it from one+'s website and make a plan with Verizon but I guess you don't research stuff before putting it in the garbage bin. If what you say about the phone is true then why has nobody else commented on this? Seems like you like to make up your own cons about both company's and products, but you have clearly made up your mind about something you know very little about, so I won't bother you again.

Mainly because T-Mobile sucks here, not even delivering text messages for hours at times. There's plenty of other reasons not to buy this phone, too. Bad camera software, no headphone jack, no visual voicemail on my network, shaky video quality, and that horrible reflective screen.

They dont offer you anything that you cant get at T-mobile, which does have this phone. If you insist on using companies like that then you'll be stuck with LG, Motorola and Samsung forever, for no good reason. Verizon used to be the best but thats old news, other companies have cought up and now the difference is minimal to none. Of course its your choice weather you buy this phone or not, but if thats the only reason to why you wont get it then I feel very bad for you.

However, to some extent you are correct because sometimes a computer/phone processor may not be capable of running certain programs simultaneously even though the RAM would be able to handle it, in which case one or more programs are prevented from running and thus entirely or partially do not use RAM
