This phone which is $899 which is higher for you know one plus phones I would say but still lower than some of the other top competition that is going against for that price point you always get a phone that performs like these other phones that cost over $1000 I mean you look at the internal specs has everything that you’re looking for has the fastest Qualcomm snapdragon platform right now I mean has 5 G. built into it even though 5 G. may not be very popular right now it is kind of future-proofing this song for you very fast ram decent storage options and then they have finally added to things.
That OnePlus phones have been missing in one of those is going to be an official I. P. rating, so this phone is now rated IP 68, so if you get it a little wet to get a bit dirty, you should be fine. Then the second thing is that OnePlus has finally added wireless charging to one of their phones. This will be able to charge at 30 watts wirelessly, and that’s just going to be the speed that it can cost, and that’s going to be plenty faster than the standard 5 to 10 watch that you find on a lot of phones. Still, it’s not quite the fastest solution best be a short off right now from companies like showing me.
Why wait that have on capabilities up to 40 watches but still 30 watches plenty now you can only charge at 30 watches using one plus his wireless charger that they do sell separately, so you have to pay a little bit extra for this feature but if you don’t want to do that you can still just put this on most other wireless chargers. They can even charge only at a slower rate, and so when you start wirelessly charging at 30 watched with this a pro, you can get from 0 to 50 percent battery in just 30 minutes, but if you want the fastest solution.
Just use the cable and the charger that comes out of the box, and now you can get from 0 to 50 in only about 23 minutes. And this phone does support reverse wireless charging, so if you have another phone or a pair of in-ear headphones to have a wireless charging case, you can place them on the back of this a pro. It will start charging them, so I firmly believe that adding these two features, especially the I. P. rating, helps make this phone a little more care for your family.
I think that this phone is coming around to the point where it doesn’t have many flaws. You see this when you turn the telephone around and look at the display on it because this screen is gorgeous. Some websites rank a smartphone screen, and the one plus a pro has rated number one on some of those sites, but look when I look at it next to the screen on the Samsung galaxy S. one tries pretty hard for me to say which one is just absolutely better.
S far as just the colors and all of that stuff but one advantage that the one plus eight pro does have over that phone is that both screens can run at a 120-hertz refresh rate that means that everything on the screen is going to be kind of silky smooth, but D. A. pro can run at that refresh rate at its highest resolution where on the S. one truck if you want to run at 120 hurts you have to step down the resolution of your phone now I do think that the main reason that Samsung does that is that they’re trying to conserve on battery life.
It does have a 5000 Billingham battery inside of it, but OnePlus is doing it with a pro, and the battery in this an advantage is only around 4500 milligrams. However, you still get all-day battery life with the running at this high resolution and this high refresh rate so they’ve done a great job with the software management to managing the decision when you don’t need the full resolution you can turn it on in the settings to have to step down automatically. The same thing goes for the refresh rate if it doesn’t need to run at 120 hertz L. step that down to help save battery life.
But there is one little small gripe that I have with this eight pro, and that’s the fact that on the screen you do now have this punch-hole front-facing camera in the top left-hand corner the reason why I don’t like that is that last year when the seven proles one plus hit that front-facing camera internally. It turned itself into a pop-up camera and only popped up when you needed to use it, which gave you a full. Our frontal screen on the front and who doesn’t like full-frontal I know I do home but now you have a little bit you know punch cameras not that big of a deal, but I would miss that pop-up camera but something that they did bring back.
Then bumped up to run at 120 frames per second taken advantage of what this screen can do. I found that it did work pretty well. I sometimes know when I start youtube video takes like 2 or 3 seconds to switch over into that mode, which can be a little annoying. Still, when it starts going into motion there, I think it looks fantastic, and I’m a fan of it, but if you don’t like it again, you can always turn it off in the settings all right so.
Now let me talk about the number 1 thing that I think plays a part when you’re talking about performance to price ratio, and that is going to be the cameras. So this one was a pro has some excellent cameras now on the front you have a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, and it’s okay it doesn’t take some decent selfie shots. Still, the video is lacking because you can only record videos at 1080 P. up to 30 frames per second, lacking behind something like the iPhone 11 pro that the front-facing camera can record 4 K. up to 60 frames per second.
But when you flip the phone around to start looking at the rear-facing cameras, the story begins to change because now you have a quad-camera set up that can go against all the other top phones. After all, you have an ultra-wide and a full angle camera that both come in at 48 megapixels, so after you take a photo, you’re able to punch in the crop in a little. It more without losing a lot of detail but the regular 12-megapixel shots that you can take which most people would be made with these cameras still look good, and they have fantastic HDR and even with that also why they bought over the night mode to that which you don’t find a lot of phones.
Now if you do like to take those type of night most shots you can with the too wide and the telephoto camera is rock solid this year because it gets you three times zoom instead of the standard two time zones and sometimes this can be good sometimes I found myself having to punch back a little bit. Still, there is also one came in this year, and this is a camera dedicated to filters which are kind of weird and look I’m not saying that these filters don’t watch. Still, it’s odd to have this camera dedicated to these filters, but looking at the rest of the cameras is especially useful.
When it comes to video and OnePlus has built into the camera app a cine mode, which gives you a stunning and wide-angle view for your video. It looks fantastic, and you can do this up to 60 frames per second, and you can see that it just really makes the video looks cinematic. It’s different from having this instead of your standard article.
You’re able to really kind of focus in on the landscape or even you know to focus in on your subject and make the background a lot more exciting and so I can keep going on and on about this camera system. Still, I did do a for comparison article n April. The iPhone 11 pro’s camera so watch the video at the watch this 1 I’ll leave a link for that down in the description or 1 of the comments, but so look for 899. I think the pro has everything you want from the hardware standpoint, and then that also applies.
The software be so this phone is running into a ten but OnePlus has their oxygen OS running on top of that in 1 place gives you the closest to stock android experience that you can get on the phone that has what the companies feel is just little enhancements here in there that make your android experience better and so instead of feeling like the oxygen OS is trying to take over stock into it feels like it’s you know kind of this you know wingman is trying to you know make stock enjoys still be.
The star of the show but as some things that may make it just more attractive and that’s still the case is really fast a lot of little touches and a better universal dark mode for example that gives you mysterious way across a lot of different apps now sometimes.
I do want one plus to being a little bit more adventurous with the software because I think they have a fantastic software team but what you finally when you Y. on Samsung galaxy devices they have a lot of features that you may not use all the time but I really kind of features that push things forward and maximize the phone’s power and capabilities like live focus video and Sampson decks and ideas.
