2020 has been a period of progress for OnePlus. The Shenzen Association's product portfolio has grown to the largest it has ever been, one of its like-minded sponsors went to New Pastures and even its prized Oxygen framework programming received a spectacular update. However, this change started with the OnePlus 8 Pro, the brand's first obvious no-compromise pioneer phone. Its original, the OnePlus 7 Pro, hailed a move towards the surprising completion of the mobile phone market, anyway the OnePlus 8 Pro shipped as the rarest and most feature-rich phone, OnePlus had ever developed. To be sure, even with the OnePlus 8T continuing to ship, those things really stay consistent today. All things considered, just over half a year after it was broadcast, is the Best of Android champion still worth buying in 2020, or has the stamina really got the ball rolling? We should find it in this OnePlus 8 Pro review.

The OnePlus 8 Pro was a presentation beast at the time of shipping and is comparatively just as impressive half a year later. All things considered, the phone's Snapdragon 865 processor has been surpassed by Qualcomm's updated Snapdragon for gaming by at least 865 chipset. Whereas of now the OnePlus 8 Pro crushed benchmarks, including our own Speed ​​Test G, the continued convergence of at least 865 controlled gaming phones like the god-like Asus ROG Phone 3 has won a little space in GPU tests. In any case, the OnePlus 8 Pro has so far been really remarkable for its superior execution, but also for its execution. Without a doubt, even when the phone heats up, it hardly neglects anything. This is obvious in our own tests from start to finish and yet it is indisputable in regular use. Nothing sets the OnePlus 8 Pro down, much more so in case, it has the 12GB RAM version with a 256GB UFS 3.0 limit. 

The high-end presentation also connects with the battery life. In any case, after half a year of on and off, use the battery interests of the OnePlus 8 Pro with just over two days with a lightweight(Wi-Fi scrutiny, calls, advice) and more than a day of juice with a deep weight(games, electronic video). Similarly, it boosts quickly due to Contort Charge 30T - around 20 minutes to get halfway from scratch. It even charges remotely and is still the top OnePlus phone to do in that capacity. Evidently, while there are now phones with somewhat more amazing chips, bigger batteries, and faster-charging speeds, the OnePlus 8 Pro hangs adequately with the best.


Another OnePlus staple, the introduction of the OnePlus 8 Pro is unbiased and genuinely exceptional on any phone. For one thing, it gets frantically splendid with peak levels of over 1,000 nits in direct sunlight. Fortunately, it is not just a numbers game with the intro, as the concealment accuracy is also spot on. Watching movies or gaming on the unfathomable 6.78-inch OnePlus 8 Pro is a taste of the experience of your enthusiastic Quad HD+ wonder. This is fully assisted by the 120Hz refresh rate. While irrefutably more common now than at the time of shipping, the OnePlus run remains one of the few that offers full boost rate versatility. Need the smoothest inclusion with all events with the highest goal? That's fine, a quick trip to Settings and you can rate 120Hz in QHD +, you can still similarly set it to effectively move somewhere in the 60Hz and 120Hz range subject to the substance you are studying to save battery life.

The OnePlus 8 Pro tackles the apex of OnePlus PDA imaging. That may seem like weak flattery considering that photography has been the shaky area of ​​OnePlus, anyway the camera experience in between is really remarkable on the OnePlus 8 Pro. The 48MP Sony IMX689 entry-level sensor bestowed on the Oppo Find X2 Pro is successfully equivalent to other driving camera phones, with stable life tones and white balance, and a mind-blowing novelty range. Generally, the processing will clear faces in low light but has improved a bit since shipping. The too-wide-point camera with a 119-degree field of view is also amazing. It's among the best accessible, especially when you factor in the dazzling full-scale mode that abuses the overly wide camera for quick and dirty close-up shots(see the mannequin on the three underlying models).

However, to be a top camera phone in 2020, it must offer the full package and the OnePlus 8 Pro misses the mark. The phone has a dedicated fax camera which is actually a 12MP sensor that yields up to 8MP for "lossless" zoom rather than zoom. certified optician. From now on, that reduces the level of detail you can get, anyway, the errors don't stop there. If you really change the zoom to anywhere between 1.1x to 2.9x, the phone cuts out the main sensor and neglects the fax camera leaving images looking very responsive. Plus, this main fax trick happens in low light ... every now and then. It is shocking. Throw in the unexceptional night vision mode, and despite the amazing gadget concealment channel, you've got a set of cameras that's satisfying, but a couple evades importance.

Despite the initial programming having problems with the teeth, the introduction of the OnePlus 8 Pro is elite ... with another unique case. We will get to that much later.


The OnePlus 8 Pro was and still is the most expensive OnePlus phone to date. All things considered, it's way more affordable than a lot of supreme leads, especially after late cutoffs. Right now in the US, the phone retails for $799(less than $100 from shipping) for the 8GB/128GB variety and $899(likewise less than $100) for the model of 12GB/256GB. Then in the UK, the 12GB frame has been cut down to as pitiful as £749 infixes. Also, it is heavily rated in India, starting at just Rs. 49,999.

OnePlus' dominance in the sensitive lead market has been phased out in late 2020 completion, with the OnePlus 8T's $749 retail cost putting it below the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and the Pixel 5 at value bets. Regardless of the degree to which the royal bosses arrive, the OnePlus 8 Pro with all its luxurious trims, robust specs, and premium layout heavily sabotages other standard adversaries such as the excellent Galaxy S20 game plan and iPhone 12 Pro, similarly to more. Force picks like the Sony Xperia 1 II, Motorola Edge Plus, and the Oppo Find X2 Pro.


It's probably a blast to see programming in the negative area of ​​an OnePlus phone. With everything in mind, OnePlus offers amazing support for your phone through updates and organization analysis. Also, the Oxygen operating system is and has reliably been one of the most appreciated by Android fans. Or perhaps, again, it should be so. Starting late, OnePlus revived its custom skin for the Oxygen 11 OS, passing along with it some changes to the parts including, after a long time of questioning, reliable screen maintenance. Regardless, it similarly introduced an absolutely new UI plan language that pushed the classy, ​​standard-like Oxygen OS overall for something irrefutably tighter. The new-look appeared with the OnePlus 8Tbut has since been cutting edge towards the OnePlus 8 Pro by methods for an OTA release in October. Or again, if nothing else was expected, I was hoping to send the update to my open drive using the Oxygen Updater app after a month of downtime.

Bundle bugs that go with any zero structure aside(and there are a couple), this hardened Oxygen OS feels like a half-adventure into a more hyped programming UX that already keeps the other foot. The result is a skin that needs character and is incredibly easy to differentiate from Samsung's One UI, especially the central menus of the OnePlus apps and Settings with their titanic headings and masses of empty space. Also, I really don't like OnePlus' new Sans literary style, your mileage may vary anyway. Oxygen OS is working so far, one of the best skins out there and I don't have any vulnerabilities, it will turn out to be awesome. At this time, in any case, it is in an unusual impermanent stage.


Alright, so the OnePlus 8 Pro's layout isn't at all shocking. Traditional, however? A bit. It's an extraordinary glass sandwich that looks intensely like a pioneering phone. The less common color combinations, Frigid Green and Ultramarine Blue, have a wonderful fragile tactile sheen that fights off fingerprints. The OnePlus-specific slider is prepared in the same way and even has an IP68 rating for water and build-up resistance, a first for OnePlus. 

With such an expression, there are some annoying problems with the overall arrangement. That fragile touch glass can monitor the spread of your fingers, anyway, plus it makes the phone incredibly precarious. You need a case. Without request. That case will also help to level out the heavy bump from the rear camera that makes the phone rock on a table with even a light touch. By then is the style show of the course. Always a troublesome issue, twists on the OnePlus 8 Pro are rare on the off chance that it comes from a leveled phone. Ongoing video and playback in this eminent presentation should for the most part be a treat, anyway, any nuance or segment of the UI at the edges of the screen is mutilated by the sharp curve.

Unfortunately, the twisted layout likewise achieves a lot of spawn contacts as you do your research, research menus, use the camera, and everything is possible from that point. OnePlus very to meet its exclusive palm technology.

The chose

It is a demonstration of the broad quality of the OnePlus 8 Pro that the previous three negatives are events of the phone without to some extent clean. This is because a year after shipping, the OnePlus 8 Pro is an ideal representation of the cycle well done. In case the OnePlus 7 Pro was the good first company in the partnership with a genuine premium edge, the OnePlus 8 Pro is a significant refinement of that entry-level model.

While it may be tempting to save up to a point more cash and go for the OnePlus 8T, the OnePlus 8 Pro has the main extras and a very pervasive camera suite. There are still chances to improve with the approaching OnePlus 9 plan, but until then, the OnePlus 8 Pro can, without a very noticeable stretch hit with any 2020 lead despite falling slightly short of the dreaded mark of $1,000.

See ya 😉
