So which phone picks up color better? Which has more detailed zoomed snaps? And which did we use to take a pigeon pic with? To see the results of our test, head over to our OnePlus 7 Pro vs Huawei P30 camera comparison piece. In order to find out just how good the OnePlus 7 Pro camera is, we’ve put it head-to-head with its ultimate rival, the . We took pictures using both phone snappers in a range of situations, from zoomed and ultra-wide shots to night pictures and close-ups of food, to see which is best (or, more realistically, to work out the strengths and weaknesses of both).
The OnePlus 7 Pro is ready to take your selfie portrait with its novel pop-up front-facing camera and then dazzle you with its silky-smooth, truly unblemished all-screen display — oneplus promo code two features Apple and Samsung can’t claim with their market-leading flagship phones.
It’s the latest Android phone from the Chinese brand to outmaneuver its top-shelf competition, offering similarly high-end power and features at a consumer-friendly (meaning lower) price.
In sum, OnePlus has done it again. But brace yourselves, long-time fans: this new model is more expensive than last year’s OnePlus 6T, the lower-featured regular OnePlus 7, and its newest competition, the Honor 20 Pro.
What do you get from the OnePlus 7 Pro in exchange for the extra cost? An upgrade deserving of the ‘Pro’ name: this smartphone has an immersive 6.67-inch screen that challenges Samsung’s display crown by ditching the ugly bezel outline and gaining a 90Hz refresh rate for a more fluid gaming and scrolling experience.
Its 19.5:9 aspect ratio is fairly tall, so don’t expect small hands to reach all corners of the stretched-out display. We wish there was a OnePlus 7 Pro mini, but we still appreciate the curved edges for an overall thinner profile. The second-gen in-screen fingerprint sensor has also been improved to help you more reliably access the phone the first time you press your thumb to the glass.
Underneath the HDR10+ screen are Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 chipset, a hefty 4,000mAh battery that powered us through a day (but not any longer than that), and up to 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM — that latter spec is actually more than you need from a phone, so the 8GB version is just fine.

The OnePlus 7 Pro triple-lens rear camera array is spearheaded by a 48MP sensor, new 3x telephoto, and ultra-wide lenses, and low-light-ready Nightscape mode. It’s closer to Google Pixel 3 and Huawei P30 Pro quality, but not the best camera phone. OnePlus has already issued several software updates focusing on the camera, and we’ve updated our review to offer an in-depth OnePlus 7 Pro vs the Huawei P30 Pro camera comparison to see just how far apart they are.
Missing OnePlus 7 Pro features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card slot and wireless charging, which will be a headache but not a deal break for some folks. Good news, it offers the fastest charging rates we’ve tested via an included oversized Warp Charge 30 adapter, while there’s also a new stereo speaker system.
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. Once hailed a ‘flagship killer’, the OnePlus series is now a flagship to be killed.
The OnePlus 7 Pro release date was Friday, May 17, although diehard fans in the US were able to purchase it after May 14’s launch event T-Mobile promotion. They waited in a long line to be the first to buy this phone.
