OnePlus 8 Pro Quick Review in 2020.

OnePlus has come a long way since the release of its first smartphone, the OnePlus One, in 2014. Brand awareness has grown significantly since then. A growth on which was modeled that of the selling price of OnePlus mobiles. The OnePlus 8 Pro reaches 1200USD in its most expensive version. It is therefore difficult to maintain the long-deserved status of "high-end killer". Now, OnePlus plays in the same court as the Samsung Galaxy S20, Huawei P40 Pro, iPhone 11, or Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. In this article, we will provide you with a quick review regarding OnePlus 8 Pro.

Design and Display.

 The identifying color of this generation of OnePlus is green. OnePlus 8 Pro has a matte satin finish and the back shell is made of glass. The profile is also in satin-finished metal and recalls the same color as the rear glass. It is a finish similar to that seen on some other top of the 2019/2020 range and that we appreciate it very much. It is pleasant to the touch and retains very little fingerprints.

In the hand, the feeling of quality is equal if not superior to many recent top of the range. The physical buttons have an excellent click response and the rear camera, although protruding, is at least centered and this greatly reduces the annoyances when using it on a plane. The smartphone is not compact but still has ergonomic shapes that do not make everyday use complicated.

In addition, OnePlus 8 Pro is also waterproof according to the IP68 standard, making it the top-of-the-range smartphone that many were waiting for. At least on this front. With its 199 grams and then lighter than its predecessor.

As far as display is concerned, OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a 6.78 Fluid AMOLED display. It occupies 90.8 of the front of the device. OnePlus 8 Pro has a 1440 x 3168 resolution with 513 PPi. The screen also introduces an RGB sensor that allows for automatic tone adjustment of the display depending on your surroundings much like Apple's true tone on the iPhones. The device supports 120Hz whether you on FHD or QHD. But you will kill your battery in no time that is the real issue.

OnePlus 8 Pro supports a brand new feature which is MEMC. It stands for motion estimation and motion compensation. This feature will give you the chance to interpolate additional frames with the motion smoothness feature when watching videos. The device also supports HDR10 Plus.

The 120 Hz brings real comfort in use compared to 60 Hz, but compared to the 90 Hz of the OnePlus 8, the difference is a little less noticeable. Moreover, OnePlus allows you to switch to 60 Hz in the settings in order to save battery, but we would have liked to have an intermediate option for more choice.

As a bonus, the OnePlus 8 Pro offers a " pleasant tone " mode   that its little brother does not have in order to automatically adapt the colors of the screen to the ambient light. This is an equivalent to the "  true tone  " of the iPhone, rather discreet and pleasant.

Operating System and Processor.

OnePlus 8 Pro is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. This powerful processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency, and it also has a neural engine on board for AI-related tasks.

 In the Geekbench test, the OnePlus 8 Pro scored 888 points for the single-core and 3239 for the multicores.

According to the operating system,  we also know that it is one of the fastest brands to roll out its updates and we can therefore expect to receive Android 11 later this year.

It's always a pleasure to test a OnePlus smartphone for this reason. The software interface is more and more similar to that of Google Pixels, even integrating some features like instant captions when playing multimedia content, with a good layer of customization. You can change almost anything you want on OxygenOS, from the shape of the icons to the color of the theme, including the size of the application grid or the font used by the system. , accent color, or vibration intensity.

You can also filter the applications in your drawer by genre, or even hide them so that they do not appear there. Finally, the haptic feedback is well dosed everywhere on the surface of the device. OnePlus says it is “  11% more powerful and more realistic  ”. If this is something difficult to quantify, we will admit without the problem that the experience is very pleasant under the finger and that particular care has been taken to the whole.

Battery and Charging.

OnePlus 8 Pro comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4510mAh. For the first time ever OnePlus provides you with wireless charging.

 The autonomy is enough to get to the end of the day with average use by keeping the screen set at 120 Hz, but not in case of intense use. This is instead possible by lowering the refresh rate to 60 Hz. However, its aces in the hole are two: not only the usual 30W Warp Charge 30T but also now the 30W wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.

OnePlus 8 Pro has a Quad-camera on the rear as clarified: 48Mp ( ultrawide with f\2.2),48MP( wide with f\1.8 it has OIS and Laser AF), 8MP( telephoto with f\2.4) and 5MP( depth with f\2.2). OnePlus has a 16MP wide front-facing camera with f\2.5 and Auto-HDR.

Interestingly, OnePlus opted for a larger sensor, not a more defined one. Like the OnePlus 7T Pro, the 8 Pro has a 48-megapixel sensor, but it is larger and therefore offers larger photosites. By default, the OnePlus 8 Pro captures 12-megapixel shots, using the pixel binning method, which combines 4 pixels into one to increase sensitivity. If we compare the day rendering of the 12 and 48-megapixel modes, we easily realize that the second retains much more detail and abuses less than its friend of the accentuation.

If we compare the rendering of the default mode of the OnePlus 8 Pro with that of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, we note a definite difference. The Chinese mobile tends to smooth out flat areas, but still retains a little detail. The colors are a bit overplayed too. The S20 Ultra is more neutral and renders more detail. OnePlus has decided to apply a strong treatment for a warm rendering, as we see a lot on social networks.

In low light, OnePlus' image processing is quite aggressive. Despite the larger photosites, the 8 Pro fails to achieve a great result from its 48-megapixel sensor. The smoothing is very pronounced and the accentuation struggles to save the furniture. The S20 Ultra shot is a little less well exposed overall, but retains a lot more detail.

For the first time in our laboratories, an ultra-wide-angle smartphone module has a 48-megapixel sensor. As for the main module, OnePlus chooses to capture snapshots in 12 megapixels by default. Unsurprisingly, during the day, the rendering is better in 48 Mpx. The details are more numerous and the contrasts less forced.

Even taking into account its default mode, the OnePlus 8 Pro's ultra-wide-angle is one of the best around when it comes to image quality. It finally surpasses the Galaxy S20 Ultra by offering a more precise rendering during the day.

In low light, the OnePlus 8 Pro manages to retain a good amount of detail and ranks as one of the best students in our comparison.

With only 8 megapixels, the sensor of this module gives the feeling of being the poor relation in photos. The result is not really extraordinary with a certain lack of sharpness. The colors seem to drool in places. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is once again much better in the daytime, despite a slightly longer focal length.

In low light, the OnePlus 8 Pro switches back to its main sensor and uses digital zoom. Logically, the quality takes a hit, and we can only partially distinguish the shapes in the image. The 8 Pro can still be reassured since, in these conditions, even the S20 Ultra loses its footing.

The OnePlus 8 Pro's portrait mode applies gentle blur to the background. This has the advantage of making the bokeh relatively natural. On the other hand, the division of the subjects sometimes lacks precision, especially in the face of complex backgrounds. The "color filter" mode is very anecdotal, it can occasionally be used for Instagram fans.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is capable of recording videos in 4K at the rate of 60 fps. A mode in which the manufacturer proposes to use its "super stabilizer" which does not offer the best result. For maximum fluidity of videos, it is better to settle for Full HD at 60 fps. In this definition, stabilization really becomes an undeniable asset.

The front photo module and its 16-megapixel sensor provide good results. Selfies are on display well overall, and faces aren't overly smoothed. We find once again this warm rendering that will appeal to some.

In short, we learn from it that the OnePlus 7T received the award for the best smartphone in 2020 according to the canceled MWC 2020. In addition, the 7T model burst into 4th place in the world in the premium smartphone segment. True, 4th place is a market share of slightly less than 2% :) Another interesting thing: OnePlus became number 3 in the US 5G smartphone market.

The result of the presentation was the announcement of two new devices called OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. We think it's clear that the 8 Pro is the flagship device for 2020. This device was stuffed with technology so much that the presenter of the presentation called this smartphone "ultra-premium".

Of course, in the 8 Pro, you will find the fastest of the Mohicans - Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, a sea of ​​memory - up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.0 internal memory, one of the largest AMOLED displays with QHD + resolution and support for 120 Hz ( don't forget about HDR10 +). Naturally, the device was "rewarded" with a 5th generation network, NFC technology, Bluetooth version 5.1 with aptX / aptXHD operation, and where without the ultra-modern Wi-Fi 6 standard.

And to make the OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone look even cooler in the eyes of potential buyers, the developers installed stereo speakers in the device and said hello to Huawei. Also, the 8 Pro can charge wirelessly and give its energy to another device. Oh yes, I forgot to say that the new product received IP68 protection. Round!

In short, you realized that before you is the real "killer" of all current flagship devices. With the price would not disappoint ... But, alas, a miracle did not happen: the cost starts from 1200USD. And here Huawei and Samsung say hello to OnePlus. what do you think? share your knowledge with us.
