Underwater OnePlus 7 Pro Review

  • Published on May 14, 2019
  • My review and water test of the OnePlus 7 Pro. This is the fastest android phone on the market - has no notch, no hole but is somehow VERY water resistant.
    OP7 Pro - amzn.to/2WIlJ1J
    The pop-up camera on the OnePlus 7 allows this camera to have a completely clean front with no protrusions or visual obstructions. The curved edges look awesome but it's a change to the oneplus design that can hinder usability.

    The distortion and shimmering water in the jug made the phone look like it was turning off constantly. I was so distracted. Thanks for watching!
    Is the OnePlus 7 what you hoped for? Is it too expensive for what it is?

      Dave Lee F#ck no.. it’s just almost perfect for me excepting size as you told. Well prize is not much terrible like Samsung S10 plus (SD855), iPhone Xs Max and Huawei P30 Pro but it is more than the prize itself.
      anyway congratulations, you did it, like it’s done.. 😂 I saw you were hasitating initially either way you did it.

    I've had the OnePlus 7 Pro for about 2 weeks now and it's the best phone I've ever had. So glad I didn't choose something else when I upgraded.

    Hello Dave,
    Please review the retail units, not the review units. OP 7 Pro has got lots of issues, phantom touch, low picture quality, fingerprint reader burning screen and many more. We, users, watch your videos and get inspired to buy and later end up disappointed with the issues with no guarantee it'll be fixed. We do not want a phone having issues initially and hoping it'll be fixed later. Please request for retail units rather than review units so we get to know any issues. This is totally unfair, camera samples nowhere matches to what reviewers say on RUclip. Not fair by OnePlus sending different unit for reviewers and users. This makes lose trust on reviewers as well.

    I own an iPhone X and the pro 7 is a bargain when compared to the 10 + or iPhones XS Max. And that’s despite the £100 price hump. I think the OP fan base lose sight of that. I dunno some people just want the moon on a stick. Seriously considering jumping Apple for this without the chucking in swimming pools or lakes

    this is still a flagship killer.Yes its price has risen quite a bit,unlike the brand yatatata.However, it still fulfills its purpose, being on par or being better than flagships like the samsung s10,iphone xs,huawei p30 etc.

    Dave, I really don't think you understand the evolution of the OnePlus market. You are looking at them like they are ONLY a budget conscious smartphone maker. They are not budget. They are budget friendly in relation to the recent flagship technology and the competitors in the field. The global price of these flagship specs have gone up. For example you can't go from a shitty VGA camera to 4K recording camera and expect to pay $299 for a phone.
    As a matter of fact, outside of the OnePlus 5T every single new addition of the OnePlus has risen in price.


    You have to look at the market in relation to value of other flagships.

    I'd say the closest in price is the S10E and there are special reasons to buy the S10E over the OP7 Pro, but hardware spec wise outside the camera it has it beat by a decent margin. Way more RAM, a beefier processor, 90HZ refresh display, bigger screen, fingerprint sensor. Its not even close.

    Or just don't use your phone around water? Like chill out...you're not going to die while you go pee. Also, people buy for the impressiveness of others. They don't look at price for economical purpose but to convince people they have money. It's a phone. You'll have it for like 18 mo maybe...

    “cannot go back“ is So True, even not all apps support 90hz ,But I m so in love with the real infinity full screen with no notch or holes whatsoever in oneplus7pro,
    I'm about to drop S10plus ceramic 8/512, very very soon.
    Ps. I skipped oneplus 6,6t bcoz of mono speaker& fhd screen.

    • Phalad TiGeR

      Shersha Basheer
      I got both for over a week, here are opinions;
      1+7pro v. 9.5.7, 90hz screen is awesome.
      haptic feedback is superb.
      Nebula blue color is fantastic, Almond is my next choice.
      Stereo speakers is a bit less clarity & rich surround sound than s10, but it's good enough for me
      Battery is as good as S10plus with bit bigger screen.
      Warp charge is a big win over s10
      The speed, fluidity, and ram management are surpassed the s10, not by much.
      S10plus over oneplus ;
      Screen brightness and quality are noticeable better,not by much
      Features on s10 are far richer and more customized by one ui and Nice Lock app.
      Camera is better on s10, but for front cam. I like oneplus7 ,
      In my country, Samsung services stores are plenty across country, none of oneplus , also galaxy gift , samsung pay.
      S10plus is one hand operated, oneplus7pro is too big.
      If you are a gaming and multimedia guy, and like a big phone ,then go for oneplus7pro.
      If camera, and features rich needed, go for s10plus,
      For me im the social and multimedia, so i probably go for oneplus7pro,
      But one thing ,i still cant drop the s10plus , because, its body design with one hand ergonomic.
      cannot decide just yet...

    Thanks for talking about Face unlock with the pop up camera! I thought about that issue as well but never heard someone talking about it.

    Face unlock is not secure and useless by definition. If someone gets your phone, he/she will have no problem unlocking it by just showing it your face. Most secure one is a passphrase. Even biometrics are not, anyone can you force you to put your finger to unlock it.

    Looking to purchase another phone in the next day or two. I have a Samsung S8 plus, and without a case, it's nearly impossible to hold onto or touch things on the screen when you don't want to. The buttons are pretty touchy as well. Not a fan. Also, never fell into the Apple crowd. I'm a Verizon customer and looking for the best phone other than Apple or Samsung. Most important features that I use are simple internet browsing, need a decent camera and I only use speakerphone when talking. So microphone and speaker compatibility should be on point. Any suggestions?

    I realy like your reviews. Yesterday I saw the oneplus 7, normal one. It's priced around 33000 rs(473 USD) here in India. So I wanted to know what the pricing is like in other countries, in the UK its 499 pound(630 USD). The 7 Pro costs 49000 rs(703 USD) here in India. And I think here in India the oneplus 7 makes more sense. Sure it has dual camera instead of triple and lacks the popout camera an most importantly the qhd 90hz screen. I have used 144hz screen my min setup has 2 4k 60hz and my gaming setup has 1 qhd 144hz monitor. I know the difference. but in things like phone cars, I think about the value before I invest any money.
