    For years, I’ve been recommending OnePlus phones as the best value you can get, period. Well, I've just spent a week and a half with the all-new OnePlus 7 Pro, and it’s the best value you can get … comma … in a certain buyer segment. Let’s see what it means when OnePlus goes Pro in the OnePlus 7 Pro Review!



    MrMobile's OnePlus 7 Pro Review was produced following eleven days with a OnePlus 7 Pro review sample provided by OnePlus. Preproduction device running prerelease software.

    Disclosure: OnePlus provided travel and lodging reimbursement to some members of the media to attend the OnePlus 7 Pro launch event in NYC, including MrMobile. No other compensation requested or provided; no copy approval requested or granted.

    Terrible review. The phone is amazing! Try updating the camera dude.

      The camera is much better after the update. I watched a comparison with the P30 Pro and it was just as good.

        This review feels like you took the worst feature of the one plus 7 pro and decided to put it center stage. It’s as if I was reviewing a Lion and talking about how poor it performed at the pool x) “ Yeah, it’s true it’s got a nice ROAR, and yes it will hunt an antilope but, when we through it in the pool, it had minimal swimming skills. I can’t recommend the Lion, it’s an underwhelming animal “ 😂😂

          Not a great phone?? Really?? Camera is not everything you know? The oneplus 7 Pro is the fastest and most gorgeous phone on the market and one of the phew phones with an actual 90 hz display that goes up to 1440 p... What more can you demand? If you are a photographer you should buy a camera. Oneplus may not have the best camera but instead they focus on the performance of the device...

                          When you were using the selfie cam to record, your voice sounded so tinny, I've heard that on a few other YouTube videos.

                                  I've got an OP5T and honestly, other than battery degradation, this almost 2 year old phone still runs like new. One Plus has my vote of confidence when it comes to software and longevity, Samsung does not.

                                    My priorities on a phone is: smooth and doesn't lag, and a big battery (Huawei mate 20 pro did the trick for me).

                                              I came back to watch this video just for fun. The phone has been out for over two months and I still don't want this device, but Mr. Mobile's videos are just a joy to watch.

                                                The funny thing is seeing Michael harp on the phone a bit had the opposite effect and got me more interested in the phone than I normally would've been.

                                                And come two weeks ago, I now own the OnePlus 7 Pro 😉

                                              Nobody mentions that ..the metal sides of the oneplus ( at least my OnePlus 6) starts to chip, losing the black coating with a CASE on) from new, never been dropped etc.

                                                      6:37 Seriously who buys a phone based on the camera? The camera has got to be the least of my concerns. If you're really into photography then you're not using your phone for that in the first place.

                                                        Redmi K20 Pro is a better value

I use Dex for presentations in conference rooms without a tablet or laptop, listen to hi-res audio via 3.5, use wireless charging for convenience and preserve the port, take pictures of commercial equipment, etc...

                                                                  One Plus has warp charging, but no wireless; has full display, but a mechanical pop up camera like other budget phones and could render the camera useless if something goes wrong with it; is marginally faster with a less feature rich UI, and a 90hz for scrolling up and down instagram; Oh the display is Samsung.

                                                                  Lot of people just don't get the big picture; so short sighted.

He focused too much on the camera quality while ignoring the fact that software updates can improve the camera quality significantly (and they did) and that gcam port is available for this device as well. He also merely glossed over the great software, performance and display of this device. Yes S10E has more features but any feature has relevance only if there is a use case scenario (eg: most wireless chargers I have seen in shops are only 5w or 10w which is significantly slower than 30w warp charging). Besides S10E was too small a device for me and I also preferred the true full screen display offered by Oneplus. I do however consider the omission of headphone jack unfortunate.However I have earlier itself adopted the wireless lifestyle.

                                                                    P. S: After using a galaxy S8 for two years I began to prefer great software, speedy performance and very good battery life over everything else.

This video is unjustly criticizing the phone for things and not calling out where it well exceeds technological capabilities when compared to many other premium handsets. The 90hz refresh display is out of this world and it's merely touched upon here.

                                                                                    I'd disagree on it being very good. Id rather have the speed then have wireless charging. I have a Moto g7 and like my previous motorola, it has slowed down considerably and I haven't got a security patch since New Year's eve. That 90hz refresh rate and oxygen OS along with the now redone camera for video really calls me. Plus I mean almond or nebula blue. The s10e does have some features the 7 pro missed out on, but same can be said for a few things on the OnePlus. And the software updates are compelling.

Unique and quick front facing camera para-scope, delicious sound, for starters...I'd say the camera is the only thing that is just very good. Oh... I forgot the price.
