OnePlus 7 Pro review: The first true OnePlus flagship

By Richard Lai From engadget

The silky smooth AMOLED screen and stereo speakers make it an unlikely multimedia beast.

OnePlus can be funny. Sometimes, the company reveals top-notch smartphones with minor flaws. Other times, new devices land with new features that were a flop. The 6T I reviewed earlier this year is a prime example of the latter: OnePlus’ first in-display fingerprint reader wasn’t very responsive, and even though I was a fan of the dewdrop-notch design, the phone’s selfie camera often took blurry shots.

Today, OnePlus makes another attempt, and it’s more ambitious than ever. For the first time, the company is releasing two flagship models simultaneously: the OnePlus 7 and the larger OnePlus 7 Pro. I’ve spent the last five days living with the $749 maxed-out OnePlus 7 Pro (with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage), and yes, with its $669 base price, it’s the most expensive phone ever from the company. Still, this is easily my favorite OnePlus phone to date, and if all goes well, it may even end up being my favorite smartphone of the year.

  • Silky smooth and sharp AMOLED screen
  • Stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound great
  • Responsive in-display fingerprint reader
  • Good design and build quality
  • Still no headphone jack
  • Not an affordable OnePlus phone
  • Nightscape mode not as impressive as the competition


OnePlus reversed most of its mistakes with the 6T and brought out a surprisingly ambitious OnePlus 7 Pro, packing several rare components that barely anyone else has procured. The result is a beast of a device that delivers fantastic mobile cinematic plus gaming experience, and one that’s in a well-designed package.
