OnePlus 8 full review

by birtanpublished on August 16, 2020

Hey what's up guys will here for GSM marina oneplus was known in the past for flagship killer phones that offer a ton of great features for the money but now we have the oneplus 8 series which are the most expensive models so far the vanilla one naturally offers a bit less

Than the pro one so does it even worth upgrading to let's find out in our 1 plus 8 review oneplus phones have always had awesome build quality and the oneplus 8 continues that tradition it's actually really similar looks wise to

Last year's models except that it is a bit taller and more narrow ours is in the Glacial green color and the frosted finish is silky smooth this helps add a bit of grip together with a matte aluminum frame and the phone is

Resistant to unsightly fingerprints too one big change in this year's oneplus lineup is the addition of ip68 water and dust resistance it's a welcome change they'll just know that only one plus eight sold by certain US carriers have

The official certification on paper another change in this year's models is that you won't find a flat screen they're all curved now which you may or may not prefer the oneplus AIDS is a six point five five inch AMOLED with a 1080p

Resolution oneplus keeps experimenting with solutions for the selfie cam unlike the notches or pop-up selfie cams of previous models the oneplus 8 has a small punch hole cutout which is hyda Bowl with a black bar this is one of the

Best screens we've seen in this class it supports a fast 90 Hertz refresh rate so content on the screen looks more fluid and smooth you get those deep AMOLED blacks and punchy colors though these can be tuned to be quite accurate in

Settings max brightness is excellent – about 500 nits in manual mode and up to 800 in auto mode when in bright conditions the optical fingerprint reader says under the display and it feels quite comfortable to use and super

Responsive to wake up and unlock the phone for audio the 1+8 is equipped with stereo loudspeakers it's a hybrid setup with the top speaker doubling as the phone's earpiece for calls performance is great the speakers are pretty well

Balanced with excellent loudness lively mids and highs and decent bass it comes as no surprise that there's no headphone jack on the 1+8 so you'll need to use USB C or wireless headphones or carry around a 3.5 millimeter adapter

For standard ones you don't get expandable storage either but at least the internal storage isn't too tiny you get the choice of 128 or 256 gigs the phone runs on one plus is oxygen OS 10 based on Android 10 as always oxygen OS

Provides a nearly stock Android experience which is quite clean snappy and load free one of the only changes with a new version is at dark mode 2.0 offers better integration with third-party apps otherwise there aren't

Many custom features here most of them are provided through Google's apps and services one reason why the OS feels so snappy is the oneplus ates powerful Snapdragon 865 chipset performance-wise this is one of the best Android phones

Out there right now and you shouldn't expect any hiccups in everyday use the chipset also supports those faster 5g network speeds if those are available and gaming performance is awesome the oneplus nates battery life is

Impressive too it's battery is a little bigger this year at 4300 million powers and it scored an excellent endurance rating of one hundred and eight hours in our proprietary tests regardless of screen refresh rate charging speed is

Also quite competitive with its 30 watt charger we were able to go from a dead battery to 69% in just half an hour you don't get the wireless charging of the pro version here though now onto the cameras there's a triple camera setup

Which includes a 48 megapixel quad bayar main cam a 16 megapixel ultra wide-angle cam with fixed focus and a 2 megapixel macro cam instead of a telephoto like last year what start off with the main cam which is the same as last year's

Model photos come out in 12 megapixels and they're decent colors are punchy dynamic range is wide and detail is good sharpness could be better though and there is some noise you don't have a telephoto like on the oneplus 70 instead

Zoom shots are a crop from the main can these lack detail and are soft fuzzy and noisy portraits are taken with the main cam and it does a good job subject separation is accurate and the D focus backgrounds generally look convincing

You can also do two times zoom portraits but due to the cropping and upscaling involved you lose a good amount of detail and sharpness the ultra wide camera is pretty good shots have excellent dynamic range and sharpening

Looks good the images are overall still a bit soft though compared to the main camera while you could take some nice macro shots with the ultra wide last year since it had autofocus this year that roll has been taken up by the 2

Megapixel macro cam it actually has fixed focus so getting a sharp photo takes some trial and error and the quality isn't very impressive now on to low-light photography these results from the main camera are just okay dynamic

Range is good and the colors look nice but there's plenty of noise detail is lacking and sharpness could be better we didn't see any major improvement over the previous generation of oneplus phones night mode does help with the

Quality a lot though it eliminates the noise brings out more detail from the shadows and highlights and add some sharpness the whole process is quite fast too almost as if you are shooting in the normal photo mode the ultra wide

Camera like most out there isn't good in the dark and produces some soft and noisy photos the colors and dynamic range do match the main cameras though turning on the night mode again adds some much-needed sharpness reduces the

Noise and brings out more detail from the highlights and shadows the 1+8 16 megapixel selfie camera is quite good it produces sharpen colorful pictures with a rich detail and wide dynamic range the selfie portrait mode looks just as good

As the portrait mode from the main camera to the edge detection is surprisingly accurate moving on to videos the main cam can shoot in up to 4k at 60fps its 4k footage looks nice color wise and has wide dynamic range

Good trust and no noise but sharpness is a little lacking here the ultra wide camera can also shoot in 4k we found its footage to be pretty similar in quality to the main cam

Though a bit on the softer side there's electronic stabilization available for your 4k videos at 30fps which does a great job in smoothing things out and there's a 4k super steady mode which uses the ultra wide lens and crubs to

Create an even smoother effect so that's the one plus eight it's got a lot going for it there's a beautiful frosted glass build which is water-resistant and an awesome curved OLED screen with a high refresh rate you get great stereo

Speakers flagship level performance and excellent battery life with fast charging so what's the issue here well it's the cameras that are pretty underwhelming you might even call it a downgrade over the oneplus 70 is set up

Since you lose the telephoto and the ultra wide no longer has autofocus but at the same time the price is a hundred euros more and while the oneplus 8 does offer a little more than the 70 feature wise it

Still has its shortcomings compared to other flagships it's sort of like in this middle ground between flash of killer and full-on flagship that's hard to justify buying if you're looking for the most bang for your buck thanks for

Watching guys stay safe and see you on the next one
