The Bezel-less Phone with a Pop Up Selfie Camera You Can Actually Afford

May 14, 2019 •

The OnePlus 7 Pro is an Exceptional Value

A few years ago, it was forgivable to think that when it came to smartphones you had to choose between the iPhone or the Samsung Galaxy. However, over the past several years other manufacturers have really stepped up their game. OnePlus broke into the top five in market share in Q4 of 2018 and is primed to keep growing. On Tuesday, May 14 OnePlus officially unveiled their newest flagship phone, the OnePlus 7 Pro. The powerful 7 Pro is launching on T-Mobile for a price of $699 and an unlocked version will be available as well.

A Big Screen with No Bezels

The very first thing you will notice one the OnePlus 7 Pro is the size and quality of the display. The edge-to-edge screen has no bezels, no notch and the 90Hz refresh rate looks absolutely incredible. The 6.67-inch AMOLED display comes with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and an in-display optic fingerprint reader.

A Powerful Phone with Little Compromise

Under the hood you’ll find the latest Snapdragon processor, up to 12 GB of RAM and a 4,000 mAH battery. That’s a pretty powerful device that matches up to the competition quite well. OnePlus’s “warp charge” fast charging is among the fastest charging speeds available achieving almost half its capacity in just 20 minutes. What are the compromises? The OnePlus 7 Pro does not offer wireless charging and is not IP certified, so you probably shouldn’t take it swimming anytime soon.

  • 3120×1440
  • 90Hz refresh rate
  • Snapdragon 855 processor
  • 6, 8 or 12GB RAM

A Quality Smartphone Camera

In 2019, having a decent camera on your smartphone is a must. It’s also an area that OnePlus has historically lagged behind the competition. The camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro is leaps and bounds better than any previous phones from OnePlus. It comes with three rear-facing cameras; a 48 MP main camera, 8 MP telephoto and 16 MP ultra-wide. The front-facing selfie camera is operated by a motor that pops out of the phone when in use. While OnePlus has assured it is durable enough, we’re skeptical how it handles more rugged use. If selfies are important to you, it may be best to steer away from this one.

All in all, The OnePlus 7 Pro is a powerful Android smartphone that is absolutely worth your consideration. At $699, OnePlus has proved yet again that you don’t need to spend thousands on your next phone.
