    iirc, the 7 pro is basically waterproof, Dave2D has a good video on it, they just didn’t want to pay for the IP rating and did all testing in house

      Nikki Luca and guess what? When your phone gets water damaged, Oneplus won’t fix it for free.

    just bought the oneplus 7 for £350, because its £10 more than a k20 pro and has double the storage and a ois on the rear camera; 8gb of ram, 256gb of storage for £350, they are still the budget kings in non pro regions.

    Some points you missed linus, first of all, for the "48 MP" photos, you need to go to pro mode and enable it.
    Second of all, the 6T will still hold better battery life because it's a lower res 60 Hz. The 90 Hz combined with 1440p, reduces battery life, however you can reduce the refresh rate, but again, it defeats the point of having it.

    And third, well it's obvious that one plus will beat any, ANY phone in app loading or booting time, thanks to the UFS 3.0.
    My brother has the XS Max and I have the 7 pro, let me tell you, in terms of Camera, screen and "speed" Apple is inferior. No, I'm not being biased. But then apple's build quality is top notch. But personally, I'd rather save those extra bucks and still have more phone In my hand.

    Hello there,

    I've been using my S7 for almost 2 years now and was thinking of an upgrade.
    But, I can't really make up my mind, if I should go with the Oneplus 7(Regular not Pro) or Galaxy S10.

    What would you recommend?

    • HBBKS
      HBBKS 15 days ago

      Dude, for 400$, you can get a Xiaomi Mi 9 that is faster than any of the samsung phones. It has SD 855, 6/8/12GB of RAM and 6'39 display. Go for it. Also the Triple Camera, and 48MP one.

    • Ice Master
      Ice Master 15 days ago

      @Wasir Hello,
      Thanks for the reply. I was considering getting a lower priced device that also happens to have great specs.
      I also factor in that the last 4 smartphones that I owned were all Samsung phones.

      I was thinking about a change of brands and Oneplus seems appealing.

    • Wasir

      If money isn’t a problem, of course, go for the S10.
      The headphone jack, ip rating, wireless charging, memory card expandability will only become more useful as time goes on.
      You will get good value for your money.

    No it is not all about the software. I work as a industrial mechanic in a foundry. How it is built is important to me so it wont die on the first day of work. Everything this phone has in terms of build quality makes me wanna die. A freaking pop up camera. The more complicated you make something the easier it is gonna break. I will probably have to settle for a CAT simply because they at least look like they are built to last.

      @Comkio Because in the last 4 years you'll have plugged your phone over 1400 times and I only had to plug the pads once?

  • Jimmy Gangster
    Jimmy Gangster 21 day ago

    I honestly didn't find the price to be that bad, even for the top model. I mean this thing is damn near borderline even with the S10+ in every aspect and costs $400 less. I do have to admit that the glare on the edges looks like it could be annoying, but I also know that I rarely, if ever, use my phone with a light directly over me like youtubers do while making videos and the only light that would really be directly over me during use would be the sun if I'm outside and even then I'm not trying to watch a movie or videos in general at that time. I am a little nervous about the front camera because of the whole mechanical aspect of it and it being an opening in the phone for dust to build up. I do hate the headphone jack not being there but when shopping for a phone I took a good long thought into consideration and realized that I RARELY even use my headphones with my phone, 90% of the time I have it connected to my car or a wireless speaker via bluetooth and the only time I use the headphone jack is when I mow the lawn while listening to spotify, and that's only a couple of hours at a time. I also have an mp3 player I use at work that I can just listen to instead, no big deal for me. Wireless charging I honestly couldn't care less about, I understand the convenience but it's something I don't mind not having, I can manage to plug my phone in, I'm not that lazy. Water resistance I have lived without and have done just fine, I just use common sense and don't use my phone where there's a chance of it getting dropped in water, I'm in the pool with it, I'm not in the shower with it, I'm not laying my phone right beside a sink that's full of water, I'm conscious about that and put my phone out of harms way.

    Overal speed - huawei developer options - lower down to 0 any animation scale and you'll have it as fast as oneplus pro.
    Camera? cant compare it to Pixel 3 or P30 pro.
    Screen? still not as good as Samsung S10+, so lets just stop with this crap.
    No notch? guess what? that hole-punch from S10+ is just something you get used too very fast. I know you like complaining a lot about it, but its mostly nonsense what you're saying.
    Fingerprint reader - seriously?? ok, its fast, but you make it look like is something revolutionary. WRONG.

    Hello Linus,
    Please review the retail units, not the review units. OP 7 Pro has got lots of issues, phantom touch, low picture quality, fingerprint reader burning screen and many more. We, users, watch your videos and get inspired to buy and later end up disappointed with the issues with no guarantee it'll be fixed. We do not want a phone having issues initially and hoping it'll be fixed later. Please request for retail units rather than review units so we get to know any issues. This is totally unfair, camera samples nowhere matches to what reviewers say on TheXvid. Not fair by OnePlus sending different unit for reviewers and users. This makes lose trust on reviewers as well.
