OnePlus 7 review

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

hey what's up guys we covered the 1 plus 7 Pro a while back and now it's time for his little brother the 1 plus 7 it comes at a bit lower price but what else are you missing out on I'm Wilfred yes I'm marina and let's find out in our for review – oneplus fans the oneplus 7 looks quite familiar this design is almost identical to last year's model the 60 with a glass back and an aluminum frame ours is in a shiny mirror gray and the curved and tapered back looks quite elegant and smooth it is quite a fingerprint magnet

Though and the camera bump does cause some wobble on a flat surface so maybe a case would be a good idea back again to see alert slider we're used to from oneplus handy if you want to quickly mute your phone while the oneplus 7 feels sturdy it doesn't have official water or dust resistance there is a red rubber seal around the SIM tray though so there is some protection against light splashes while we're talking about the sim tray I should mention that storage isn't expandable here you'll have to make do with 128 or 256 gigs built-in still quite a lot though on the

Front we have a tall six point four inch AMOLED display with 1080p resolution the bezels are slim and there's a small water drop notch up at the top which you do have the option to hide you get those super deep AMOLED blacks and content looks great next brightness in manual mode is good the same as last year 60 at 443 nits but now you get a boost up to 642 nits and automotive bright conditions color accuracy is also impressive depending on your color settings there is something like an always-on display though not quite it only lights up if you move or tap on the

Phone or receive a notification an improvement over last year is the inclusion of stereo speakers on the 1 plus 7 it's a hybrid setup with the earpiece acting as a second speaker quality overall is pretty nice loudness is very good and sound is rich if you're going to plug in headphones however you'll need to use the USB C port as there's no audio jack and we're sorry to say that there's no dongle or headphones included in the box we do test the output using a passive adapter we had and volume wasn't too impressive

But clarity was great with excellent stereo separation but keep in mind that if you use an active adapter you may get different results to wake up and unlock the one plus seven there is an optical under display fingerprint reader it's been improved over last year's model and is incredibly reliable one of the fastest and most accurate that we've ever tried one cool feature here is called quick launch you can open shortcuts for apps or certain actions by holding down on the fingerprint area after the phone unlocks there is the option to use facial

Recognition to unlock the phone too but since it only uses the selfie cam it isn't as secure as a fingerprint the user interface is one pluses oxygen OS running over Android 9pi it looks a lot like stock Android and runs quite fast partly because it cuts down on a lot of those UI animations you can navigate using on-screen keys Google's pill setup or one plus a zone swipe gestures whichever you're more comfortable with and there is a gaming mode which can allocate more resources to your games for better performance as well as stylus notifications while you're playing games

Will run quite well too thanks to the top-of-the-line Snapdragon a 55 chipset with either six or eight gigs of RAM the Adreno 640 GPU handles graphically intensive tasks with ease and performance in benchmarks it's in line with the other flagships running on the snapdragon 855 that is to say excellent the oneplus 7 has a 37 hundred million power battery and though it isn't the largest power pack out there these days it's performance is impressive it posted an excellent endurance rating of a hundred and two hours in our proprietary tests the battery also charges up quite

Quickly using the 20 watt fast charger we were able to go from 0 to 55 percent in half an hour the oneplus 7 has a dual camera setup there's a 48 megapixel main camera the quad Bayer filter and OIS and a 5 megapixel depth sensor sadly unlike most of its competitors there's no telephoto or wide-angle can hear regular shots come out in 12 megapixels and the ones we took in good light look great they have nice detail basically no noise good contrast vibrant colors and wide dynamic range about the same quality as on the oneplus 7 pro you do have the option in Pro Mode

To switch to shooting in 48 megapixels but there isn't much point in doing so these take up way more space and you don't get that much more detail moving onto portrait mode these shots look good with natural skin tones and plenty of detail the edge detection is quite accurate even with a more complex background the phone does pretty well let's see how the oneplus seven dozen lowlights regular photos taken with the main camera decent resolved detail is in grades but noises reasonable and dynamic range is nicely wide preserving a many

Light source as well instead of blowing them out if you turn on the dedicated night mode the quality improves significantly the exposure is more accurate you get extra detail in the shadows and highlights and colors look punchy err now one two selfies the oneplus 7 uses a 16 megapixel front shooter with fixed focus the images it produces have good colors and decent dynamic range the oneplus 7 supports 4k video recording from the main camera up to 60fps video quality is decent with accurate colors good contrast and little noise dynamic range is also good we've

Seen better detail from the competition though videos in both 4k and 1080p at 30fps have electronic stabilization which does a great job in smoothing out your footage at the expense of a small reduction in the field of view so that's the one plus 7 overall it's a great flagship phone you get a brilliant AMOLED screen awesome performance stereo speakers excellent battery life and a nice camera as far as shortcomings go there is a lack of a headphone jack storage isn't expandable and you don't have water resistance but these are about par for the course for oneplus

Phones these days but probably the biggest concern about the 1 + 7 is where it sits in the market place it's hard not to compare it to phones which pack a triple camera setup and their competitors which offers similar high quality features for less money phones are just getting too good these days so although the 1 + 7 is a great phone you don't need a price reduction before it earns our full recommendation thanks for watching guys and see you on the next one
