Yesterday, OnePlus released its new 7 Pro new fighter among huge fanfare. This phone is a huge step for the manufacturer as it aims to compete with the big guys by characteristics instead of just underestimating the price.
But OnePlus also introduced OnePlus 7 and a good argument can be said to be the one that actually represents the spirit of the OnePlus line. Here's why.
OnePlus 7 can look seriously diluted compared to OnePlus 7 Pro, but it really is not. It does with a smaller screen – 6.41 inches compared to 6.67 inches – with lower resolution and a regular 60Hz refresh rate, as well as a notch. But it's still an outstanding 1080p AMOLED board, and the smaller diagonal actually allows the entire phone to be smaller. Do not make a mistake here, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a huge phone, taller and tighter than the Samsung Galaki Note9.
OnePlus 7 also has a 300mAh smaller battery, but it can match or even beat the OnePlus 7 Pro battery due to a smaller screen with a lower refresh rate.
Probably the biggest reason to use OnePlus 7 Pro with OnePlus 7 camera – Pro has 48MP f / 1.8 main, 16MP f / 2.2 ultravi and 8MP f / 2.4 3K telephoto combination, while OnePlus 7 only gets 48MP (and a bit useless 5MP f / 2.4 depth sensor).
However, it can not be denied that even with three cameras, most of your recordings will be made with the main 48MP. And lovers of self-help will not lose anything, because on the front is the same 16MP f / 2.0 snapper as on the Pro version. It's safe to eat this on your screen, but at least you do not have to wait for the lifting mechanism every time.
OnePlus 7 – front and rear
If you are in productivity, the OnePlus 7 has the same Zippi Snapdragon 855 chipset with 6GB or 8GB RAM and UFS 3.0 storage as the 7 Pro. These are, in fact, the first two phones with a new genetic warehouse, surpassing the Galaxy S10, Google Picel 3 and Huawei P30 Pro.
OnePlus 7 also gets a new, larger optical fingerprint scanner inside the screen. And stereo speakers.
Now the price factor – OnePlus 7 starts with € 550 / INR 33,000 for 6GB / 128GB and € 600 / INR 38,000 for 8GB / 128GB. These are significant savings over Pro and keep the phone away from competitors such as the Galaki S10 and the Huawei P30 Pro.
OnePlus 7 – Red and casing
With specifications and pricing, OnePlus 7 feels like OnePlus 6T (which will still be available in selected markets at a reduced price). This means that it feels like a premium product at a lower price than expected.
Additionally, if you manage OnePlus 7 right after OnePlus 7 Pro, you will be immediately affected by its ease. Although not a light phone, OnePlus 7 feels like a smart device, while the 7 Pro is huge.
Taking a long look at the landscape of top-notch smartphones, we do not see many phones approaching OnePlus 7 as a package for that amount of money. You have the Ksiaomi Mi 9 with its versatile camera, but less battery and that's all.
A large part of the selection between these two will decide if you want OkigenOS or MIUI. And the fact that most markets do not have access to both phones.
OnePlus made it almost impossible to create a stuntman – he made a brand new and innovative phone while still focusing on the basic brand – the regular OnePlus phone. We would say that this is a good job.
