OnePlus 8 Pro Review

OnePlus 8 Pro: The phone that Samsung feared the most

OnePlus’ latest flagship lineup is an alarm for Samsung thanks to its sleek design, 120Hz display, 5G, better cameras, and even wireless charging

Starting at €799, the OnePlus 8 Pro is more expensive than the €649 OnePlus 7 Pro and the €699 7T Pro. With the latest smartphone, OnePlus distanced itself from the motto of the “flagship killer” company by competing more directly with Samsung and Apple products without the massive price advantage.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

8 Pro simplifies the design of last year’s models. The “pop-up” selfie camera has been removed, replaced by a traditional “hole-punch” camera. The 6.78-inch QHD+ elite screen is the star of the show and covers almost the entire front of the device.

This year the refresh rate has been increased from 90Hz to 120Hz while staying in line with the Galaxy S20. The difference between 60Hz and 120Hz screens is something that is easily noticed when browsing lists, content, and other animations that are smoother at 120Hz.

The screen can be used on either FHD+ or QHD+ at 120Hz, unlike Samsung where 120Hz is limited to FHD+ only.

The rear of the glass is not only an aesthetic element but paves the way for wireless charging technology. The smartphone weighs 199 grams and is 74.4mm wide and 7g lighter than the previous model. It is significantly more comfortable to hold in the hands compared to the Galaxy S20 Ultra and 2.7mm longer than the 7T Pro. The OnePlus 8T Pro is the first OnePlus smartphone with IP68 certification of water resistance.


  • Screen: 6.78-inch 120Hz QHD AMOLED (513ppi)
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8 or 12GB RAM
  • Memory: 128 or 256GB UFS 3.0
  • Operating System: Oxygen OS 10.5 based on Android 10
  • Camera: Rear 48-megapixel main, 48-megapixel and super wide, 8-megapixel telephoto, 5-megapixel color filter; 16-megapixel front
  • Connectivity: 5G, two SIM cards, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, Bluetooth 5.1 and GPS Water resistance: IP68
  • Dimensions: 165.3 x 74.4 x 8.5 mm
  • Weight: 199 grams

Speed and battery lifespan

The 8 Pro has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor with 8 or 12GB of RAM as the OnePlus 8. This means unquestionable performance with 5G technology. The 8 Pro also has the battery life of the OnePlus 8 with 32 hours between charging cycles. Three hours used in 4G, in Wi-Fi with FHD+ 120Hz screen, 50 minutes video, 7 hours Spotify with Bluetooth headset, and about 20 photos. This is what you can do in a day with the OnePlus 8 Pro battery.

The 5G’s performance was similar to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, while when two SIM cards are used, the smartphone is limited to only 4G. The Warp Charge 30T is so fast that it charges the 50% battery in 28 minutes and the full charge in 77 minutes. The novelty for this year is the optimized charge which saves the battery by delaying the charge to 100% at night till the moment you pick up the smartphone in your hands.

New is also wireless charging, including the Qi standard and Warp Charge 30 Wireless technology. 9 Pro can also charge other devices with Qi wireless technology. The OnePlus 8 battery withstands 800 charge cycles up to 80% capacity.

Oxygen OS 10.5

OnePlus 8 Pro comes with Android 10.5 Oxygen OS 10.5 operating system based on Android 10. This operating system is among the best if not the best based on Android with balanced functionality, aesthetics, and speed like no other.

OnePlus offers a 3-year update since debut, including two years of Android version updates and another year of security updates. Samsung offers 4 years of support for the Galaxy S series and Apple 5 years for the iPhone. So OnePlus has work to do in this regard.

The Camera

The OnePlus 8 Pro has four rear cameras where it combines: a 48-megapixel main camera with Sony’s new sensor, an ultra-wide 48-megapixel camera with last year’s Sony sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera, and a camera 5-megapixel colors filters.

The 48-megapixel main camera is excellent producing some of the best photos, details and exposure from a smartphone. Auto-HDR mode accurately manages high-contrast scenes, while the light performance at least differentiates it from the 7T Pro and 8 without the need for “Night Scape” mode at all. Normally the smartphone captures 12-megapixel photos combining four pixels in a single.

The 48-megapixel ultra-wide sensor is one of the best modules also in this camera segment producing quality images in good light. Problems with this sensor start in low light environments where it often produces image noise. Night Scape helps you in such scenes.

The 8-megapixel telephoto camera is good too but suffers in low light environments. There is a hybrid zoom (optical and digital) 3x and a digital magnification only 30x. In bright light, you can capture detailed objects even with 24x magnification.

Finally, the 5-megapixel photochrom filter is more advertising than usable. There are endless software that do the best job combined with the main camera.


  • The side slider easily passes between Silent, Vibrate and Ring modes
  • Stereo speakers are excellent
  • The smartphone comes with a plastic screen protector from the box
  • Excellent call quality
  • OnePlus sandstone cases are better if you want your smartphone not to slip

The Price

The OnePlus 8 Pro starts at 799 euros for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of memory and goes to 899 euros for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of memory.

OnePlus 8 starts at 599 euros, OnePlus 7T Pro at 699 euros, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra at 1,199 euros and Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max at 1,149 euros.

The Verdict

8 Pro shows that OnePlus is no longer the number 2 hidden under the shadow of the big ones. Rather it brings technology capable of rivaling industry leaders.

Fantastic display, stylish design, wireless charging, and water resistance. The software is best on Android, battery life is high and the experience with Android interface beats clearly Samsung and Google.

The Chinese firm has managed to address the weak point, the camera, and maintain the strong point of the software, the speed and longevity of the battery. It is no longer the cheapest smartphone, but the cheapest and best option among the best.

  • Battery life
  • Quality camera
  • Slider of notifications
  • 5G
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • High performance
  • Fast wireless and wired charging

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

We are already used to OnePlus and the fact that every year they releases one of the most interesting Android series on the market. The presentation during the first years was to offer as many elite options at the lowest possible prices. But it seems that OnePlus is no longer shy and openly is showing its ambitions.

OnePlus 8 & OnePlus 8 Pro Specs

OnePlus 8

The OnePlus 8 is a more upgraded version of last year’s 7T while the 8 Pro is the bet where the company hopes more without sparing anything at last. OnePlus 8 comes with Snapdragon 865, up to 12 GB RAM, 6.55-inch AMOLED FHD+ display limited at 90Hz refresh rate that has HDR support, 4300 mAh battery and Android-based OxygenOS. Both the standard and the Pro model this time comes with 5G connectivity support. 

As for the design, it has a curved glass screen and an “punch-hole” notch that we are already used seeing in may devices. Is also offered in a new color by the company, the Interstellar Glow, and you still get Onyx Black and Glacial Green from the company.

As related to the camera department, it packs three cameras on the back, 48MP main sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, and an 8MP sensor. At the front is included a 16 MP “punch-hole” selfie camera.

Included in the box, of course is an Warp Charge 30T for 30W wired fast charging, that has becoming a necessity these days but unfortunately it lacks of wireless charging technology and has not an IP68 rating unlike the Pro model.

OnePlus 8 Pro

The premium flagship, OnePlus 8 Pro in addition to the above brings a beauty called Fluid AMOLED 6.78-inch 120Hz QHD+ display, runs on the high-end Snapdragon 865 processor, more interesting camera, larger battery and finally wireless charging this time 30Wat. The more expensive version comes with 12 GB of LPDRR5 RAM, just like the S20, and up to 256GB UFS3.0 of internal memory.

As for the camera department it carries an quad-camera setup at the rear with a 48MP primary camera, 48MP ultra-wide camera, 3X telephoto camera, and a color filter sensor. There’s a hybrid stabilization system that uses OIS and EIS and three microphones for high-quality audio. At the front, like the OnePlus 8, its the same 16 MP “hole-punch” located at the left corner of the display.

OnePlus 8 Pro packs a 4,510 mAh battery, which is 10% bigger than the battery capacity of OnePlus 7T Pro, supports 30W Warp Charge 30T wired charging and 30W Warp Charge 30 Wireless charging with reverse charging support.

As for the connectivity, both phones support dual SIM, Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-FI 6, NFC, and USB-C connectivity. Unfortunately there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack on either phone, and you won’t be able to expand storage with an SD card. OnePlus 8 is IP68 water and dust resistance rating and this is another advantage of the Pro model.

OnePlus 8 Pro wil bring changes to the selfie camera

OnePlus 8 Pro will bring changes to the selfie camera

A new report says OnePlus will replace the “pop-up” selfie camera used on the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro with a hole-punch camera on the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″ tdc_css=””]

Images compiled from the information available on OnLeaks show that a fourth sensor will be added to the rear adjacent to the triple camera system, a 3D ToF sensor.

In addition to the published images, OnLeaks along with 91Mobile say the phone will have a 6.65-inch 90Hz curved screen, slightly smaller than the 6.67-inch 7T Pro.

In addition to the loss of the pop-up camera, the report suggests that the phone will not undergo major changes.

While the non-Pro OnePlus 8 will have a smaller 6.5-inch screen and lack the 3D ToF sensor. Although we are months away from the debut of phones, OnLeaks’ reporting and information have been historically accurate.
