One Plus 7 Pro in 2020 – Keep it or upgrade?

by birtanpublished on February 1, 2021

Last year I was absolutely shocked and amazed by a phone that sat on top of Android came out of nowhere as far as I was concerned and just captured my heart the oneplus 7 pro this thing was my favorite Android phone of 2019 I've said this and I know people didn't believe me even after the note 10 came out I was still a lover of this phone as you can see I still have this and I don't have my note anymore still my favorite Android phone but the question is should you still rock this phone in 2020 is this a phone that's gonna get you through the first year of the new decade well I'm gonna tell you all about it

Right after this what please welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is Travis and I do tech videos every single week and have a blast Dorner if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything I talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video now let me just start off by saying I understand there's a oneplus 70 I know that I get it there's one plus 70 pro and all that stuff but the differences between that and this really kind of minor so if you want to take the same feedback that I have about

This phone onto that phone they're kind of the same the one big difference being the back where the camera is what it looks like other than that they're pretty much the same the processor is only slightly faster on the T version not enough to make a whole different video I'm gonna talk about the 7 Pro because I've actually had hands-on with this thing for however many months it's been out and I believe that my feedback absolutely goes to the 70 as well and you know I haven't really been that interested in anyone plus phones until last year they came out with a 90 hurt

Screen which was kind of the first in the industry at least where you could get one here in America easily and you know I went out and bought one and I was like it's kind of cool it's not bad and then I returned it that's right I returned it I returned it because people were having problems with their phone and I was worried that mine was gonna break but after a couple of weeks went by I missed it I missed it really bad I had a Galaxy Note 9 at the time and you know the Galaxy Note and I was amazing and great but I just kept going back to this smoothness and quickness of the

Oneplus 7 pro in my mind so I went back and bought it again those videos where I talked about that on my channel I maybe I'll leave them somewhere linked around here so you can understand exactly what I was going through and you might go well why did you like the 1 plus 7 Pro so much why was it your favorite over top of the note series the one phone you've had ever since the note 2 that's right I had 2 note 2 3 4 5 6 set well there was no 6 and the 7 well we know what happened there so this one came out after the Galaxy Note 9 and yeah you

Know for me I knew that it was one that I wanted above and beyond the note 10 even before the note 10 came out that's right even when the note 10 came out I knew I was gonna go back to this one and I think it really comes down to speed now while all the phones that have been out over the last couple of years have been fast and the 855 was across all the flagships of last year the operating system oxygen OS on oneplus phones is snappy as heck it is super fast and even when I had the note and turned down the animations which by the way I shouldn't

Have to do I mean it was kind of fast but it never felt as fast or as smooth and that's where the 90 Hertz display came in so with the Galaxy Note series or galaxy even S series you can turn off animations to make it snappy err but without those extra animation frames for example 90 frames per second versus the 60 on the galaxy note or galaxy series it just felt kind of choppy and there's something really intoxicating about how smooth and fast this device is most importantly apps open fast the fingerprint sensor opened fast everything I did on this thing open fast

And it became a joy to use so I've talked about this a couple of times in the last couple months it's not just every little bit that made this a successful phone in my opinion it's all of them together the experience when you add all of these together was excellent oxygen OS super fast with some great options the 90 Hertz display awesome smooth as butter great but if the operating system wasn't optimizing the way that it is then a 90 Hertz wouldn't make a difference it would make no difference at all but when you add them together the experience becomes

Intoxicating now sure you're giving up some really important things from the Samsung out of things like Samson pay the best mobile payment out there period Samsung pay owns all and on the note side of things you're giving up the s-pen which is pretty cool but I will have to say that over the last several years I didn't really use the s-pen nearly as much as I thought I would so I didn't really miss that at all so the optimization of the operating system the way everything works the way everything about this phone works I like like just

Even going up sliding up from the bottom that go through your apps just made sense I don't know everything about it made sense the one thing this thing always caught flak for was the cameras and you know what they're not as bad as we thought are they as good as a Galaxy Note phone or an iPhone 11 pro max of course not but this phone never costs $1000 at no point was this phone $1000 so you have to give them a little bit of slack for that in addition if you side load a G cam that made the camera ray actually more than good more than a $700 phone like it really made a big

Difference so has never got the hardware on the cameras it was actually more about the software and you could kind of get around that but even so I think people gave this phone a lot of flack for its phone for its cameras but here's the thing when I did a blind test a while back on both my youtube channel community page and on Twitter and just said hey there's a picture here what do you think does it look good people said it looked good when you take away the pious of knowing that it's a 1 + 7 Pro and you look at the actual images and

Even the video quality there's really nothing wrong with it it's not as good as the top-end phones but you're not paying top-end phone money so the reality is you can be posting these pictures and videos on social media all day long and most people won't have a problem with it again I posted these pictures on social media and it was overwhelmingly positive people were actually surprised how well how good it looked I just didn't tell them it was 1 plus 7 Pro because if you tell them that then they're gonna pick out all the problems with it and the battery life on

This thing has always been great always through a day I could get into the beginning of the next day depending on how much I used it I mean I don't think I could ever get through 2 days but this thing always last me through a day pretty easily with a little bit to spare and this thing is updated it's all the way up to Android ten so the updates come fast and furious from oneplus now of course with Android you always have to worry about your carrier in this case t-mobile how often were they getting their updates out eventually they did but oneplus was

Kicking the updates out pretty quickly and that's super important when it comes to security updates especially on the Android side of things if for no other reason there's people always throwing out these really bogus apps and apks that can completely hack your phone so you need to have the security updates super important one plus is that a great done a great job here so for me if you still have the oneplus 7 pro I think you're fine I don't see why you'd want to spend four or five hundred dollars extra above and beyond something like this today the oneplus 70 you could say

Maybe you purchased that over this if it's a hundred dollar difference depending on where you purchase it from but I think this phone is excellent in 2020 the question is what about for the rest of 2020 with the other flagships coming out now of course the picture quality this thing is not gonna match up to any of the phones that come out this year and oneplus will be coming out with a new version of this phone but for me the only thing that's going to do is make this an even better value this and the 70 both of these phones will drop price even more if you can still find

The pro and probably down into the 400 hour range and at that point my goodness this is an incredible phone for that price so yes if you have a one plus seven pro one plus 70 or whatever the case may be you are doing really good don't worry about upgrading sure they're gonna have all these great features on these other phones but you have a really darn good phone that still to this day despite all the phones I've been messed around with is my favorite Android phone right now we'll the s20 or the note 20 whatever they're gonna call it change that later this year I mean maybe but

Again you're spending so much more by the time you get out of the store with one of these you probably haven't spent much more than six or seven hundred dollars depending on where you purchase it from and to spend another four or five hundred dollars for a couple of features on the phone that isn't terribly better than this I just can't I can't cosign that but what do you think you have a one plus seven pro or one plus seventy leave me a comment below let me know do you like it do you love it or are you going to upgrade to something else that's coming out if you

Are gonna upgrade which phone are you gonna upgrade to one of the Samsung phones maybe the new one plus a new iPhone what are you gonna upgrade to let me know in the comments below if this video helped you out in any way hit that like button hit the subscribe button hit that notification bell and if it didn't hit that like button hit the subscribe button hit that notification bell come here every single week having a blast hope to see you again real soon peace and love peace and love
