Review of the OnePlus 7T Pro

The OnePlus 7T Pro has just been announced at an event in London, and although it does not offer the revolutionary changes that come with a series of integrated improvements that make this model an excellent 7 Pro at the beginning of the year Make better than.

Between these improvements, we get a faster performance, thanks to a new processor, a faster charging system, and new functions in the photographic section.

Will this be enough to entice users to buy OnePlus 7T Pro instead of the standard 7T? Find out in our full review of OnePlus 7T Pro.

Price and availability

As revealed by the company at an event in London, the OnePlus 7T Pro comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage at a price of € 759 with the possibility of buying from MediaMart, Amazon and OnePlus. Website .

For its part, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage is priced at € 859. You can buy it on Amazon and OnePlus website from November 10.

Finally, it should be noted that the OnePlus 7T is the one that reaches a more affordable price of € 599 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is also available on the websites of MediaMart, Amazon and OnePlus website.

In Spain, both the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro are first and exclusively available from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm on Saturday, October 12 in a joint pop-up store with MediaMarkt La Maquinista de Barcelona Will be

Other name, same design

It is impossible to overlook that the OnePlus 7T Pro looks almost identical to that of its predecessor; in fact, when we placed them next to each other we could not detect any difference.

However, this does not have to be something negative. The OnePlus 7T Pro, like the 7 Pro, is a smartphone with an incredible design: a curved screen, the back with a matte glass finish and an aluminum body reflector that we love.

The curvature design of the smartphone, both body and screen, optimizes hand curvature, making it easy to hold a 6.55-inch smartphone with one hand.

The OnePlus 7T Pro is exclusively available in Hays Blue (Haze Blue), and although it is not dissimilar to the 7 Pro’s dark blue haze, the 7T Pro’s vibrant back catches and refracts light in a unique way.

screen

Of course, the screen becomes the hero. The OnePlus 7T Pro has a 6.57-inch AMOLED panel. QHD + screen (3120 x 1440) which offers an incredible range of colors, details and compatibility with HDR10 +. If this doesn’t sound impressive enough, the 90Hz refresh rate will make the experience with the OnePlus 7T Pro amazing.

This is not a special feature of the 7T Pro, it’s true, as we first saw it in the previous 7 Pro, and it’s also available in the recently announced 7T, but it’s still something we don’t get In many smartphones, which are not focused on gaming and usually provide a better update rate.

The experience with the screen is fluid, smooth and ultra sensitive, either for navigating your Instagram account or Call of Duty at 90fps. The animations are fast and fluid thanks to OxygenOS 10 which we’ll talk about later.

We can say that after testing 90 Hz it will be difficult for you to return to the 60 Hz display.

Of course, increasing the refresh rate causes the battery to deteriorate, so when you want to increase battery life, OnePlus offers the option to reduce it to 60 Hz. The terminal is smart enough to automatically jump to 90Hz when you play.

In addition to update speed, the OnePlus 7T Pro has a screen without note, providing a clean and infinite panel experience that cannot match other more expensive models such as the Huawei Mate 30 Pro or iPhone 11.

This is achieved thanks to the inclusion of an automatic pop-up camera embedded in the body of the phone that will act as a selfie camera.

Like the previous OnePlus 7 Pro, the OnePlus 7T Pro features an on-screen fingerprint scanner. Earlier this year it did not work very well in the 7 Pro, but OnePlus has managed to improve this updated algorithm function and improve scanning speed.

This time, the process of scanning fingerprints is almost instantaneous, suffice to say that it is one of the best implementations of fingerprint scanners on the screen that we have seen today.

It’s all about 855+

An important difference between the OnePlus 7T Pro and its predecessor is that the latest model includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ chipset as well as Adreno 640 GPU processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB UFS storage.

The improved processor provides some extra power, which is important when rendering at 90Hz. .

OnePlus 7 Pro owners are unlikely to notice any noticeable improvement in performance. This is, as one might expect, accelerating in almost every aspect; The cameras load instantly, there is no stutter as you move from one app to another, it allows you to play more complex 3D games without hindering performance.

All of this, which sounds great on paper, is supported by the performance tests presented to us on the phone, which show higher performance than most high-end smartphones in the industry.

While the performance of the game is impeccable, even up to 90 Hz, the smartphone becomes very hot during long sessions. In fact, we had to turn off the Call of Duty mobile at some point because the top of the smartphone (or the left side when placed horizontally) got so hot that we could barely touch it.

Something similar happened during our graphic reference tests: 15-20 minutes later, the phone became so hot that it started disabling functions to cope with the temperature rise.

Therefore, although the OnePlus 7T Pro may provide a major gaming experience, it cannot maintain this excellent level for long periods of game time.

In terms of battery life, we have found that the OnePlus 7T Pro’s 4085 mAh battery can last you all day without problems, and this is supported by our battery tests in which you have achieved a result of 10 hours and 47 minutes.

The battery is 85mAh more than the OnePlus 7 Pro, but what was really needed was a bit faster in fast charging. OnePlus calls it 30T charge, and offers faster charging thanks to improved battery life.

Although it is not as fast as OnePlus 7T, we found that OnePlus 7T Pro jumped from 0 battery to 46% in 20 minutes and 64% in 30 minutes.

In terms of connectivity, the OnePlus 7T Pro offers WiFi 6 with Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS connectivity and 4G. If you thought the 7T Pro was going to have 5G connectivity, then you are in bad luck, as 5G is still exclusive to the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, with no plans to launch 5G variants in the ‘T’ range yet. is.

Great camera performance

Like the OnePlus 7T, the OnePlus 7T Pro has a triple camera configuration at the rear with a single front camera, but there are minor differences between the two models that make the 7T Pro a winner.

First, the specifications: The OnePlus 7T Pro features a 48MP main sensor with f / 1.6 diaphragm, optical image stabilization, and a seven-element lens to improve image clarity.

Next to the main snapper, you have a 117-degree ultra-wide 16MP sensor f / 2.0, electronic image stabilization and a six-element lens, and a final, but less than no reason, you’ll get a 12Mp telephoto lens aperture f / 2.2, 3x with EIS and a six element objective.

This is probably familiar to owners of the OnePlus 7 Pro, because on the hardware side, nothing has changed. But while the hardware is the same, OnePlus has introduced some new software improvements that should improve the already impressive smartphone rear camera.

In general, the performance of the three sensors is excellent. Most of the images are well-detailed, vibrant and well-lit, and the HDR’s performance is great, even in photos with lots of backlight.

But that said, we’ve seen that wide-angle cameras sometimes use a highly aggressive noise reduction algorithm that can make wide surfaces look a bit soft.

Take a wide-angle picture of Luna as an example; It sounds great initially, but if you approach and look at your forearms, it will cost you the smallest details to detach. This is not really a problem with the 48Mp main sensor, as you can see in the image below.

The improvements are presented as an extended portrait mode; Mode allows you

The switch between two focal distances – standard and telephoto – depends on the subject

Image, and we don’t have many complaints when it comes to edge accuracy

Identification of either. The problem is that, as with previous generations of OnePlus smartphones, the Bokeh effect cannot be adjusted while taking photos or later.

This is a kind of niche, it is true, but it is a feature offered by many competing smartphones and we are somewhat disappointed to see it not implemented in the 7T Pro.

Night landscape mode is back, but this time you can switch between multiple modes. The 48MP lens and 16MP ultra wide lens depend on what the situation requires.

This is a feature that many smartphones do not offer, but after using Night Mode with Ultra Wide Angle we understand why it is not a great experience.

In particular, the f / 2.2 diaphragm of a wide-angle lens cannot compete with the f / 1.6 diaphragm. The main sensor and difference is not only in the overall quality, but what can actually be done (it is immediately noticeable in comparison).

Yes, when you can use Ultra-Wide in Dedicated Night mode, we would probably recommend sticking to the main sensor.

In addition to improving the Night mode, the OnePlus 7T Pro has the ability to take close-up macrophotographs. It uses an ultra-wide angle camera to achieve results, and can accurately focus objects between 2.5 and 8 cm with impressive results. It is not something you will use very often, but it works well when needed.

For video, the OnePlus 7T Pro offers a dedicated slo-mo that is limited

It uses wide-angle lenses (although the cut makes it almost imperceptible) and provides an incredibly smooth feel with an accurate mount.

In software, stabilization is sometimes seen, but not enough to proactively reject you using specific modes when necessary.

If you turn on the phone, you will get a 16MP lens in the form of a pop-up camera. The pop-up functionality is great, but we’re sure it’s the same sensor used not only in the OnePlus 7 Pro, but also in the 6T series.

It is a decent camera capable of taking detailed selfies for sharing and portrait mode performance is quite decent if the one-lens configuration is taken into account.

OxygenOS: a breath of fresh air

OnePlus 7T Pro runs OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10 from the beginning. Unlike previous versions of OxygenOS and Android, the change in 10 is not immediately apparent, but when it does, it will come with a handful of new and improved features that will improve your digital life.

The first improvement is in terms of navigation: OnePlus 7T Pro offers the possibility

That you slide down the screen to go one step back instead of pressing the back button. This may sound like a small change, but it is something that you will start using in the end and then it will be weird that it is not there.

ZenMode, for those who don’t know, is OnePlus’s response to digital well-being. The idea is simple: when you want to live the moment and not be distracted by your phone, you can activate ZenMode and deactivate almost all functions for a certain time.

The OnePlus 7 Pro offers up to 20 minutes, but that has accelerated up to an hour in the

OnePlus 7T Pro. In an era when people focus on improving digital habits, it is good to see OnePlus offering something a little different.

In addition to this, there are a number of smaller changes that improve the overall quality of the experience with OxygenOS 10 and consolidate its position as one of our favorite third-party Android. 

Verdict

The OnePlus 7T Pro is a stunning design, with great design, powerful interior work and great camera performance at a price that we expect to be much cheaper than its rivals.

The performance of the 90 Hz refresh rate really does matter when the function is used, but with the launch of the OnePlus 7T, it is no longer a special function of the Pro version, and the same goes for the triple camera configuration. .

While it sounds great and offers impressive performance, it hasn’t changed much compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro – in fact, the only physical changes are the new Snapdragon 855+ and improved battery.

And when considering the similarity between the 7T and 7T Pro, there is not much further than the curved screen that gives the 7T Pro the status of ‘Pro’.

So, although the OnePlus 7T Pro is a great smartphone, it is not a major update either. 7 Pro or the new 7T, this is the best phone that we cannot wholeheartedly recommend.
