OnePlus 7 Pro will be getting these seven new features soon

OnePlus may have come under fire for alleged deceptive marketing regarding the OnePlus 7 Pro's true photography capabilities. It also received a lot of complaints about issues with its touch screens. What one can't accuse the company of is turning a deaf ear to user feedback and doing nothing about them. To its credit, OnePlus has been pushing out updates to address some, not all, of those concerns and it is now going public with some features users can expect to arrive soon.

OnePlus 7 Pro in almond brightens things up in the US and Canada today [UPDATE]

When the OnePlus 7 Pro launched last month, it came in two different colors: mirror black and nebula blue. Those are both solid color options, but they're also both a bit on the dark side.

OnePlus 7 Pro OxygenOS 9.5.7 update may have banished Phantom Touch

It should have been its crowning glory but OnePlus ended up with egg on its face with the OnePlus 7 Pro.

To its credit, OnePlus is moving fast, perhaps scrambling, to patch up the ship before it sinks and this latest update may have fixed some of the most glaring ones.

OnePlus 7 Pro phantom touch issue to be exorcised really soon now

Not too long ago, there was sort of a running joke on how long before OnePlus manages to mess up an otherwise successful launch. Sometimes that has something to do with the way it managed orders, other times it's about technical issues with the phone discovered only after it has shipped. For the OnePlus 7 Pro, it was the latter, causing some of the company's biggest fans to call it out over their gripes. To its credit, OnePlus seems to be moving as fast as it can to chase down bugs, especially the ones that you can't see.

OnePlus 7 Pro update with camera fixes: See our before/after photos

Over the past week we've been keeping up with the relatively few issues OnePlus 7 Pro users had with software right out the box.

There's also a set of improvements for the camera.

OnePlus 7 Pro gets first post-launch update to address some issues

OnePlus seemed to have pulled out all the marketing stops when it launched the OnePlus 7 Pro last week, getting benchmarking sites to publish their reviews on day one. That set a high bar of expectation for the phone and, unfortunately, it seems to be coming up short of those expectations. The phone has been swamped with complaints, especially for its cameras. While this latest update doesn't address the biggest ones, it at least paints the picture of a company that's quick to roll out fixes.

OnePlus 7 Pro owners are divided on camera quality

Benchmarks are great for starting a discussion as those usually have set rules and guidelines that can make comparisons a bit more consistent and standardized. They aren't, however, great for gauging real-world performance, which can vary wildly depending on unpredictable factors and, sometimes, personal preference. That seems to be the case with the OnePlus 7 Pro which has been given rather high scores on DxOMark, putting it in second place (tied with the Honor 20 Pro). Now that the phone is actually in users' hands, however, some are questioning how the site achieved those figures.

Honor 20 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro: battle of affordable flagships

Honor has just unveiled its 2019 entry into the smartphone race and while the company has been known to put out flagship-level phones with affordable prices, the Honor 20 Pro took things to a new level. It is, so far, the first Honor phone to almost reach the highest score on DxOMark, hinting at its photography chops. Naturally, that has caused it to be compared with the one is sharing that spot with it, the OnePlus 7 Pro. Both make the same promise of a premium-quality Android phone that won't break your bank account. Only one, however, can really claim to be at the top.

OnePlus 7 feature apps readied for older phones (with fixes)

Phones like the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 6 will get a new set of features in an update that'll make them more like OnePlus 7. The OnePlus 7/Pro has a set of features like Zen Mode and Screen Recorder that push the already-excellent phone into the "so many features that I'll probably never use them all" zone. That's a good place to be, especially for people that already own a OnePlus phone.
