OnePlus 7 Pro owners are divided on camera quality

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 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)

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.

OnePlus 7 Pro Zen Mode, Screen Recording APKs land on older models

OnePlus 7 Pro Zen Mode, Screen Recording APKs land on older models

Almost all Android phone makers, with extremely few exceptions, add some extra features to their flavor of Android. Mostly these are frowned upon by advanced users but some do like the value that those add-ons offer. Some even demand it for their previous gen models. That's what some OnePlus owners want from the OnePlus 7 Pro's Zen Mode and Screen Recording features and while OnePlus did promise it will happen eventually, some have taken matters into their own hands.

OnePlus 6 revisited – A year later, it is still a solid option

OnePlus 6 revisited – A year later, it is still a solid option

One year has passed since the release of the OnePlus 6, one of the best smartphones released in 2018. Loyal to the Chinese manufacturer’s “flagship killer” philosophy, the phone packed best-in-class specs at a price much lower than its flagship counterparts – a compelling reason not to fork out a thousand dollars just for a new phone.

OnePlus 7 Pro Clear Back hints at some potential bad repair news

OnePlus 7 Pro Clear Back hints at some potential bad repair news

The OnePlus 7 Pro was revealed to be a very durable phone and despite having no formal IP rating, OnePlus insists it has enough water resistance to survive accidents. Durability and ingress protection, however, does have some drawbacks to them. Making a phone a strong as a tank while not looking like a tank also means making it tight and near impregnable. And, as JerryRigEverything seems to have briefly found out, that could make it hard for repairs as well.

If this is Pixel 4, thank goodness for OnePlus 7 Pro

If this is Pixel 4, thank goodness for OnePlus 7 Pro

Rumors popped up this afternoon about Google's Pixel 4, a new device that'll probably appear later this year. The Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL wouldn't look particularly different from the last model, coming again with the two-tone back and the on-trend front. But if this is it, Google might want to head back to the drawing board.

OnePlus 7 Pro vs Huawei P30 Pro: the better camera phone

OnePlus 7 Pro vs Huawei P30 Pro: the better camera phone

Smartphone cameras are where it's all at these days. Even Google, who has stuck to only one sensor, at least for now, performs all sorts of software magic to produce unbelievably good photos that trump even those with two or more cameras. For almost two years now, Huawei has claimed the top spot, in DxOMark ranking as well as in reviews.

The OnePlus 7 Pro has just broken cover and is now challenging the long-time champ. Will it win in a camera face off against the Huawei P30 Pro or does the self-proclaimed Flagship Killer have some other trick up its sleeve?

OnePlus 7 Pro’s new screen sets a new record on DisplayMate

OnePlus 7 Pro’s new screen sets a new record on DisplayMate

For years, OnePlus has settled, despite its slogan, for a Full HD screen. For years, it has insisted that 1080p preferred by its customers because of the energy savings it brings. That all changes with the OnePlus 7 Pro as the company flipped the switch to a QHD+ screen, along with a few other goodies in tow. And in exchange for the potential higher battery drain, OnePlus' "ultra-premium" gets to be invited into DisplayMate's exclusive club for having one of the Best Smartphone Displays ever.

OnePlus 7 Pro DxOMark score should give Samsung and Huawei pause

OnePlus 7 Pro DxOMark score should give Samsung and Huawei pause

Despite its bang for buck appeal, OnePlus has never been known for having great cameras. Good, perhaps, but not great. And it's not that the company has been skimping on the imaging sensors to keep prices low. More likely, it just hasn't yet come across the perfect mix of hardware and software to putt it at the top. That seems to have finally changed with the OnePlus 7 Pro, at least based on DxOMark's scores.
