About OnePlus 7 Pro 5G - Review, Specs + more With the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, the Chinese manufacturer presents its new flagship in stunning XL format and with full 5G capabilities. It was the first handset to launch in the UK with 5G - but is it good for anything else? Thanks to powerful hardware, huge OLED display and innovative camera technology, it offers you a lot of comfort in everyday life. But it comes at a BIG price, and is it worth paying? Or should you just opt for the regular 7 Pro without 5Gcapabilities? Let's find out... Summary of contents Huge OLEDs are here 7 Pro 5G: 48 megapixel main camera OnePlus 7 Pro 5G: Solid picture quality Smooth design, pleasant feel Top Performance The oneCompare verdict OnePlus 7 Pro 5G Price UK Huge OLEDs are here The OnePlus 7 Pro already impresses us with its stunning case. With a length of 16.2cm and a weight of 206g, it is certainly not one of the compact lightweights. The focus is instead on a comfortable viewing and reading experience of the premium class. The large OLED display is no less than 6.67 inches tall, has an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and a Quad HD + resolution. Thus, you have the best conditions for high-resolution video streams in HDR10 + as confirmed by this reviewer. Also, according to our tests, the display impresses with an extremely sharp and detailed picture. A special feature is the shortened frame rate of 90 hertz. As a result, the picture remains visibly quieter for fast-moving subjects and scrolling. Another innovation is that the display does not need a notch for the selfie camera. In this way, the display remains symmetrical according to this review, and wins not only plus points for games and videos optically in size. 7 Pro 5G: 48 megapixel main camera To make this possible, OnePlus have embossed the camera from the display surface. Instead, the 16-megapixel front camera snaps out of the case above the display as soon as you activate the Selfie mode. To mitigate damage, fall protection is installed. In the event of an accidental fall, the camera will automatically retract before the housing bounces off the ground. The main camera has also been upgraded compared to the predecessor models. Now 3 camera modules are used: The main sensor dissolves a total of 48 megapixels and is visually and electronically image stabilized. The second camera works with 8 megapixels and 3x optical zoom. Much like the high-end camera smartphones from Samsung and Huawei, the OnePlus 7 Pro features an ultra-wide-angle camera with an image angle of 117 °. OnePlus 7 Pro 5G: Solid picture quality According to the manufacturer, cameras on board do take decent pictures, however, it does not come close to the results of the camera quality from Huawei, Samsung and Apple. This review describes the photos as sharp and balanced with natural, restrained colors. The wide-angle shots are sometimes a bit blurry and have colour fringes. The telephoto optics in turn makes the testers according to sharp images with always slight noise. The night mode has also been improved compared to the predecessor model OnePlus 6T. If you can do without the wide-angle lens, and can handle the slightly quirky retractable selfie camera, you will find a good alternative in the regular OnePlus 7 Pro (interestingly, in the UK at least, there is no regular non-Pro version). Smooth design, pleasant feel The front design with the slight wraparound screen is pretty similar to what has been offered by Samsung lately. The rear of the phone with the iridescent colour scheme and the matte 3D Gorilla glass, the surface all make this handset looks great; the OnePlus designers have gone all-out here and the result is very aesthetic. According to our reviewer, the device feels velvety, even with a load of fingerprints it should be relatively clean looking because of the matte finish. Unfortunately the case is not IP certified so be very careful around a lot of water - this could be disastrous, but there is some protection against dust and splashes of water. Top Performance Let's go under the bonnet. It has a powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, which makes the OnePlus 7 Pro one of the fastest smartphones currently. Thanks to the upto 12 GB of main memory and the fast UFS 3.0 device memory, even the most graphically complex games should run smoothly. However, the internal memory cannot be extended by Micro SD cards. Instead, there is the option of dual SIM card operation. The running time of the large 4000 mAh battery is absolutely suitable for everyday use. In the tests we did, enough capacity for intensive use for about 13 hours. Charging with the quick charger is also pretty rapid, as you would expect the battery is charged after half an hour to about 60 percent. By contrast - as with the regular non-5G version, the OnePlus 7 - no wireless charging is possible here. and you also have to do without a socket (jack) for headphones, like a lot of phones. Rumour has it that the next OnePlus flagship will bring this back, but for now it's not there sadly. The oneCompare verdict The OnePlus 7 Pro has attracted a lot of attention online with its matte finish, excellent display and pop-up camera, and its 5G capabilities. The fast performance of the UI is pretty impressive, which offers enough reserves even for complex apps and powerusers will love it. The main camera takes good pictures without claiming the top spots in the photo segment. As with the regular OnePlus 7, the lack of IP certification, the missing jack socket and the absence of wireless charging are among the few weak points. This is one of the "new class" of supergood Chinese handsets - see also the offerings from Xiaomi for more of the same - this is probably the equivalent model. The Chinese are here - and what they've got is often more capable, and arguably just as well designed as bigger brands like Samsung or even the iPhone range. OnePlus 7 Pro 5G Price UK The main problem is the price. Chinese manufacturers struggle to often compete at this kind of price point. And since the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G costs £699 in the UK, the monthly contract price is also going to be high. A monthly contract will cost about £50 a month on a 18 month term.
