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.

This is my 3rd OnePlus phone having started with the 1, then the 5T, and now the 7 Pro. With both the 5T and 7 Pro there is a BIG PROBLEM when running OS 9 rather than 8, as from my experience there is a BLUETOOTH BUG in their version of OS9, and it won't connect with some of my Bluetooth devices, most critically my Tesla Model 3! I was able to work with their tech staff to roll back my 5T to OS8 and the resolved the Tesla connectivity issue, but we haven't been able to roll back the 7PRO to that earlier more fully functional OS. Darn. I would NOT RECOMMEND this model to anybody with a newer Tesla, as it is a failure for handsfree calling using their OS9 as it now exists.

I'm really satisfied with this phone. There's just so much to love about it, specially for the price: PROS: - The screen is just amazing, huge, vibrant, smooth, bright... best screen on any phone. Period. - It's FAST, I've thrown all apps I can think of at it, and it just doesn't skip a beat. - Great battery life. It easily lasts me 1.5 to 2 days of regular to heavy use. - Clean and useful software: NO BLOATWARE, an almost stock android version, and the few add-ons are genuinely useful. - The fingerprint scanner is blazing fast, and very VERY accurate. - Great camera. I'm professional photographer, but all photos I've taken look amazing, and sincerely, on occasions look better than those of the P30. - Great build quality. It's a gorgeous phone. - Dual SIM! Yay! CONS: - No sd card slot (although i got the 256GB variant, so no biggy). - No headphone jack: this one hurts more, but oh well, you can't get everything I guess - It is a heavy and very big phone. Not a problem for me, because I have big hands, but something to consider if your palms are smaller. For me, this is THE PHONE of 2019, specially because it's cheaper than all other flagships (and, in case of the iphone X, much, much, MUCH cheaper)

The predictable end of the one sided slab phone/pda design cycle in a blazing fast package with the best display.

Beautiful phone with blazing speed and amazing display. Love the notchless screen and pop-up camera. Thus far this is my favorite phone I have ever owned.
