Engadget Review

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.

The Verge
The 7 Pro is a spec monster. And with Android phones, I usually get a little nervous when I see spec monsters. It’s often a sign that the fit and finish are going to be an afterthought. But in a week or so of using the 7 Pro, I didn’t feel like any corners were really cut. The screen is incredible, the cameras are respectable, and the software is clean and fast.

The OnePlus 7 Pro's camera, performance and price make it the go-to premium Android phone of 2019.

Ars Technica
Any company selling a $1,000 smartphone should be in an absolute panic with the OnePlus 7 Pro on the market. The company is shipping better features, better software, and a better design for a lower price. The OnePlus 7 Pro just sucks all the air out of the Android flagship conversation: it's this or nothing else.

TechRadar
The OnePlus 7 Pro is full of surprises behind its true all-screen display, unblemished by a notch cutout or punch-hole camera. It hides a novel pop-up selfie camera and offers a 90Hz screen refresh rate that makes games and moviewatching look more fluid. It has features that Apple and Samsung aren’t giving you in 2019, and performance to match. One more surprise, though: it costs almost as much as the iPhone XR and Galaxy S10e.

Pocket-Lint
With an unrivalled edge-to-edge display and fantastic performance, the OnePlus 7 Pro is every bit reaching for the flagship stars. But with a higher price point, some strong competition - especially on the camera front, where the Pro has some questions remaining - can it outshine Google, Samsung and Huawei's flagships?

The OnePlus 7 Pro is a great smartphone. It is also possibly the fastest smartphone in the Indian market today. However, there are two aspects that stop me from completely recommending the OnePlus 7 Pro – pricing and camera quality. At this price range, OnePlus is entering a territory dominated by the likes of Samsung and Apple, and branding matters to a lot of buyers.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is by far the best value for a premium smartphone on the market today, giving you the features of a $1,000 phone for $300 less.

the OnePlus 7 Pro will deliver flagship performance in every department except it won't cost as much as a flagship smartphone by the major brands. There are some trade-offs - but OnePlus believes it's made the right ones keeping its consumers in mind. From where we're standing, they do have a point, and if you are not obsessed with photography, we can wholeheartedly recommend this phone as it has all that it takes to keep you happy day in and day out.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is the most expensive OnePlus phone yet, but it’s still a crazy good value for the money.

If you want the very best, the 7 Pro is a pretty good deal. Question is, with excellent cheaper phones like the Pixel 3A and OnePlus 6T, do you really want to pay $700 for a phone?
