OnePlus 7 Pro is finally official and at $669 it’s one of the best value for money handsets. So let’s take a look at OnePlus 7 Pro top features that makes it one of the best devices in the market right now.
OnePlus 7 Pro Top features
#1. 90Hz Fluid AMOLED QHD+ Display
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a showstopping curved edge-to-edge 90Hz QHD+ display- a first for OnePlus handsets. And we guess it’s only the 2nd smartphone that has a 90Hz refresh rate. Coupled with the support for HDR10+ the display is by far the most impressive aspect of this device.
In fact, it has also received an A+ rating from DisplayMate which is really cool. We are sucker for good displays and this is one of the best displays out there. Basically, it’s made by Samsung but kudos to OnePlus for going an extra mile and ordering a 90Hz display from them which we’re sure you are gonna love it.
#2. Full-screen curved display with pop-up camera mechanism
The 7 Pro also has an immersive full-screen curved display that reminds you of Samsung flagships. It looks really futuristic and beautiful, to say the least. To achieve this look OnePlus opted for a motorized camera setup. OnePlus claims it’s very sturdy and would last you 300000 operations which means it’s gonna easily last for over 5 years or even more if you don’t take more selfies. The have also done a durability test where they picked up a cement block of 49 pounds with the selife mechanism and surprisingly it didn’t break.
Also, it has a mechanism where if you drop the phone while you are taking selfies, the accelerometer detects the fall, and the mechanism hides the camera back in the body in a fraction of a second. So the moving camera mechanism is sturdy and there shouldn’t be durability in real life.
#3. Fast UFS 3.0 storage
Our phones have a blazing fast 7nm processor but the performance of our phones also depends on a number of other factors. And the quality of the storage is an important one that can have a huge impact, especially in the long run.
OnePlus 7 Pro has a UFS 3.0 storage so you’ll notice a significant performance boost. Almost twice as compared to the UFS 2.1 storage found on other flagships. Right now there are only 2 devices that support the UFS 3.0, they are the OnePlus 7 Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy Fold.
#4. Stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos
Speakers on phones are not just important to music lovers, but also o those who watch a film and TV shows or play a lot of games. Over the last few years, more and more manufacturers have started incorporating stereo speakers into their handsets and thankfully OnePlus has also included one this time, one channel at the bottom of the phone and the other inside the earpiece.
So yeah, with stereo speakers coupled with Dolby Atmos your content consumption experience on the 7 Pro is gonna be top-notch in the aural sense as much as its gonna be in the visual sense.
#.5 Faster in-display fingerprint scanner
It has an in-display fingerprint scanner just like the OnePlus 6T which means it’s optical and not ultrasonic like on the Galaxy S10. So there are some compromises in the security bit the good thing is, it’s insanely fast this time.
OnePlus claims it’s going to unlock it in just 0.21 seconds which is over 30% faster than the 6T. It’s really a significant improvement compared to last year.
#6. Triple rear camera with nightscape
OnePlus has also jumped on the triple camera bandwagon. this represents a series of firsts for the OnePlus camera system. The lenses include a normal, wide angle and telephoto. There’s also a night mode called nightscape. Not really sure if it’s as good as Huawei’s or Google’s night mode but it’s cool nonetheless to at least have it.
#7. Bigger battery and fast warp charger
OnePlus also has a 4000mAh battery which is big enough but the problem is 90Hz display is gonna eat up a lot of that battery life. I saw MKBHD’s video and he said he got around 4 hours of the screen on time which is poor. In comparison, the Huawei P30 Pro gives over 7 Hours of the screen on time so OnePlus has some work to do.
Thankfully they are working on the variable refresh rate and may push that with a future update. Also there is a warp charger of 30 watts so at least the charging speeds are good.
In any case, for $669 OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the best devices you can get right now, which will offer a truly different experience than with any other previous OnePlus products.
