The OnePlus 8 Pro is one of the biggest phones of the OnePlus Company because it adds features that we’ve been wanting for years and, it’s literally really big. With wireless charging and a proper water-resistance rating added as the most attractive improvements, this smartphone comes strong to the market being at the top of the stack side by side to devices from big companies like Samsung.

Design and display
For the design, the first thing we noticed is the dimensions of 74.4 mm X 165.3 mm X 8.5 mm and the weight of approximately 199grs. So, this phone is HUGE, but the curved edges and the overall look, compensate for this. The glass back is available in glossy and frosted matte finishes in either black or turquoise colors and the camera set is kept in the middle for a more symmetrical look. There’s also an alert slider on the right, which is an easy way to switch your notifications off, without having to unlock your phone.
A 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with Quad HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate is the star of the show, allowing the user interface to be perfectly smooth when switching apps and scrolling through the screens and, on top of all of that, it curves towards the edges making it look classy.
Performance and battery life
The OnePlus 8 Pro runs with Android 10 Q and it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. With 8 GB RAM, 128GB of storage, and the rest of the features, we see that this device is designed to keep feeling blazing fast! So, you don’t need to worry about lag or delay, even if you’re playing games with high-quality visuals and fast animations.
A 4,510mAh cell is incorporated to allow us to use the phone for at least a day and a half, even though you spend hours gaming or watching videos. For a ‘regular day’ use, you could stretch the battery life up to two days.
The camera of the OnePlus 8 Pro is not the best of the best, but it does its work well. With a 48 MP primary rear-facing sensor, we see an important improvement in compare to the previous OnePlus devices. The IMX689 combines 4px into one, resulting in a 12 MP output with higher light sensitivity than a 48 MP shot would have, and the same time, the primary camera it’s complemented by a 48 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, an 8 MP optically stabilized telephoto lens and a color filter sensor, resulting in sharp photos that shine with vivid colors and many details.
It also has a 16 MP front camera and in short terms, it takes nice photos, but it could be better.
Conclusion: OnePlus hit it out of the park with this one.
With a priuce tag of around $1000 it’s not a cheap phone, that’s for sure. But for the quality and all the features that work perfectly in the OnePlus 8 Pro, it’s worth the investment.
