Today, OnePlus mobile phone released a new OnePlus 7 series mobile phone in Beijing. As the pinnacle of the current stage of the mobile phone, the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone has been comprehensively improved in terms of performance, camera, screen, etc. Its DxOMark camera scores 111 points, and the difference is topped. Its customized screen can be realized. The 90Hz refresh rate, which makes the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone become a strong competitor of the 2019 year-round phone.

Design & Appearance

OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone is made of double-sided 3D curved glass material, and it is available in star color blue. The one we got was a star fog blue color.

The OnePlus 7 Pro phone features an exclusive custom 90Hz fluid screen, the industry’s first 2K+ resolution, 90Hz refresh rate OLED screen with a screen size of 6.67 inches, a ratio of 19.5:9, and a pixel density of 516ppi. The 90Hz response time of this screen is only 11 milliseconds, and it is very smooth and smooth.

OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone screen color gamut supports sRGB and Display P3, 3D Corning Gorilla Glass is used on the front and back. This double 3D curved glass design makes the phone overall smooth and round. The screen of the OnePlus 7 Pro also passed the DisplayMate A+, HDR 10/HDR 10+, and German VDE Blu-ray certification. In addition, OnePlus 7 Pro also supports global DC dimming.

OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone star fog blue version of the back glass uses the AG glass process (anti-glare glass process), which can make the back of the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone shell to minimize light reflection, making the back shell look more transparent, At the same time, the matte texture produced by this process makes the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone feel more like real metal.

The back of the OnePlus 7 Pro phone uses a rear three camera design, in which the main camera is a 48-megapixel lens, and also includes an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 16-megapixel super wide-angle lens. In addition, the OnePlus 7 Pro also supports dual LED flash, triple optical zoom and hybrid focus (PDAF, laser focus, contrast focus). The front camera of the OnePlus 7 Pro phone is designed with a lifting structure and the lens uses a 16-megapixel lens.

OnePlus 7 Pro phone uses a dual 3D curved glass design, so this makes the entire side of the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone very narrow, the left side of the phone is the volume +/- button, the side is used with the previous generation OnePlus 6T electro-optic The purple version has a similar gradient design, which is very futuristic.

On the right side of the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone, there are three-stage switches and power/lock screen buttons. At present, many mobile phone manufacturers have canceled similar switching mechanisms. Only a few manufacturers such as Apple and Jiajia have performed this function. Reserved. The OnePlus 7 Pro still retains a three-stage switch design on the very narrow side. This has also become an iconic element of the OnePlus mobile phone.

The top of the OnePlus 7 Pro phone has a noise-canceling microphone and a camera lift module. At the same time, the Dolby panoramic sound dual speakers with top and bottom speakers are very shocking. Since the mobile phone adopts a 3D hyperboloid design, the edge portion of the mobile phone is not enough for the SIM card, so the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone chooses to place the SIM card slot on the bottom of the mobile phone.

The USB-C interface on the bottom of the OnePlus 7 Pro phone supports audio playback and Warp flash charging 30. Switch to a dedicated USB 3.0 cable for high-speed data transfer.

In addition to the mobile phone notebook, the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone box also has Warp flash charger 30 adapter, Warp USB-C data cable (support USB 3.0), card pin, transparent protective case, Logo sticker, and other accessories. Next, let’s take a look at the performance of the OnePlus 7 Pro phone in terms of performance, battery life, camera, system experience and so on.

Oxygen OS

As a deep user of a mobile phone, the author has always had a soft spot for the hydrogen OS system of a mobile phone. According to the concept of “Smooth & Fast”, the hydrogen OS is as simple and refreshing as the name, and the process is smooth. Smooth. According to OnePlus, the transcript of the oxygen OS of the overseas version of a hydrogenated OS is comparable to the native Android system powered by Google’s pro-Pixel.

OnePlus for the OnePlus 7 Pro this new 90Hz, 2K resolution fluid screen, also adjust the transition animation. The simple desktop style and the practical hydrogen window (negative screen) design also make us feel the simplicity of the OnePlus 7 Pro but not simple features.

The new OnePlus 7 Pro phone supports Google’s latest Android Q beta, and this OnePlus 7 Pro system has further system-level optimization, OnePlus 7 Pro equipped with hydrogen OS 9.5.1 based on Android 9.0 development. Added screen recording and meditation mode.

OnePlus 7 Pro’s new “Meditation Mode” allows users to leave their mobile phones for 20 minutes. After multiple confirmations, a OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone will enter the “Midden Mode” for 20 minutes. In this mode, users can only make an emergency. Call, answer the call, and no other operations can be performed.

This built-in “meditation mode” allows users to better focus on learning and work without the need for other external third-party applications to ensure their efficiency. Although the “meditation mode” is a built-in function of the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone system, we see that the design page of this function itself is very simple and beautiful. The hydrogen OS installed in the OnePlus 7 series has introduced the card task manager and gesture operation from the 9.0 version, and the task manager slides up. In the setting, the user can select the mode of task clearing, which is divided into “normal clear” and “Deep Purge”, after the depth clear is turned on, the user’s unlocked application will be cleared. This mode also allows the user to freely choose the program retained in the background.

The full-screen gesture function of the OnePlus mobile phone is also retained on the OnePlus 7 Pro, and the user can perform a series of return, application switching and the like through the gesture operation instead of the virtual key. It is worth mentioning that the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone has added a custom-made Haptic linear motor of the largest size in the current Android mobile phone. This linear motor has more than 200% vibration increase, daily mobile phone touch. The experience of shock control and the typing process can simulate a very real experience. This can obviously feel the true feedback effect in use.

OnePlus 7 series phones also added multiple sets of live wallpapers and static wallpapers, and the new live wallpapers are based on clouds. Users can also use Shot on OnePlus to select photos uploaded by other users using OnePlus mobile phone as wallpaper or customize their favorite wallpapers. In addition, for the display of the screen, OnePlus 7 Pro can modify the refresh rate and resolution of the screen in the settings, the user can select the 90Hz or 60Hz refresh rate, or the 2K resolution can be adjusted to FHD+, the reserved permission of this function Users can save power in low battery mode. In the function lab built into the phone, OnePlus also adds experimental features for DC dimming.

NFC has been supported in multiple versions before the addition, which is no exception in the OnePlus 7 Pro. The new OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone has been added to the original Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Intercom Card, Shenzhen Tong, Lingnantong and Jiangsu Traffic Card. Wuhan Express bus card, but because the mobile phone is not officially listed for sale, the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile communication card is still temporarily unavailable. OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone has added RAM Boost startup acceleration technology on the basis of 6T. Under the blessing of this technology, the OnePlus 7 Pro game mode has further evolved into a new Fnatic esports mode. Modes can block incoming calls and notifications, while also enabling network enhancements to enhance the gaming experience.

In general, the hydrogen OS system of the OnePlus 7 Pro adds a lot of practical new features while ensuring the original fluency. These functional improvements and improved mobile phone fluency allow us to see one. The flagship mobile phone should have a true level, which is achieved by adding a OnePlus 7 Pro phone.

Cameras

At the moment, the status of the camera function in the smartphone has become more and more obvious, which can be seen from the increase in the number of cameras behind the phone. This year, a plus camera was also used on OnePlus 7 Pro. Among them, the main camera is 48 Megapixels, using Sony’s latest IMX586 Quad-Bayer sensor, the sensor size is 1/2 inch, with f / 1.6 aperture, and the custom 7P lens module, support OIS optical image stabilization.

In addition, a OnePlus 7 Pro also has an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with a unit pixel size of 1.0μm, f / 2.4 aperture, also supports optical image stabilization; in addition to this telephoto lens, OnePlus 7 Pro also joined A 16-megapixel 117° large wide-angle lens corrects the viewing angle by 102°. With the help of three cameras, the OnePlus 7 Pro can support ultra-wide-angle shooting under 17mm focal length, with 3x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.

It is also worth mentioning that the camera of the OnePlus 7 Pro has added the UltraShot Ultra Clear Engine image algorithm, which can make the backlight objects in the large backlight scene clearer, and with the triple hybrid focus, it can capture more clearly in an instant. In addition, in the night scene, UltraShot can also suppress the highlights and maintain the true color through the algorithm, so that the photos show more details. Based on this, let’s first take a look at how the one-plus mobile phone 7 Pro will perform in terms of basic photo quality.

OnePlus 7 Pro to take a photo of the daytime outdoor street in the standard camera mode. First of all, it can be seen that the overall exposure of the photo is relatively balanced. Suppress the highlights of the picture, and the dark part of the leaf backlight is not black. The light and dark levels have a clear explanation, which shows that there is a relatively good dynamic range. It may be the reason for controlling the highlights. The whole sample looks a little underexposed. Of course, this is not a problem, but the choice of the exposure orientation of the manufacturer during the training.

OnePlus’s sample color saturation is higher, but it is not an exaggerated rich fan. There is no overall style orientation on the image, and it is more important to restore reality. This is also a consistent feature.

Zoom in on the sample to see the resolution. It can be seen that the outline of the window grid on the building is still there, and then the signboard of the “Zhengda Group” is also seen. The magnification is higher after the enlargement, and the back surface of the canopy does not find any noise, but this is mainly Thanks to the smudge, it looks like there will be some watercolors after zooming in. But overall the resolution is worthy of recognition.

In the same scene, using a three-times zoom lens to take another shot, you can see that the grid details on the high-rise windows are significantly more, and the smear is not so obvious.

In the following scene, the contrast of the building’s light and the backlight is more obvious. OnePlus 7 Pro still shows excellent dynamic range. The whole sample is not partially overexposed, and the dark side of the building is in the brightness and noise. Control is relatively good.

In addition, OnePlus 7 Pro’s main camera and three-times zoom camera have obvious differences in imaging style. The following samples are more obvious. The main camera still maintains a conservative exposure control and high color saturation, and after switching to the triple zoom lens, the exposure of the sample is obviously more sufficient, and the color saturation is also reduced, the difference is quite obvious. This phenomenon can also be seen in the next set of proofs.

Then we switched the scene to the door of the convenience store where the trees were hidden. OnePlus 7 Pro performance, the first look is still good, the color is bright, the high-light leaves above the convenience store have not been exposed, the dark bushes, the shelf counter inside the convenience store, can also be photographed.

However, after zooming in on the sample, the resolution under this scene appeared to decrease, and with the obvious white noise, it can be seen that the text on the poster of the convenience store door is not easily identifiable.

Next is the macro proof, thanks to the large aperture of the main camera f/1.6, OnePlus 7 Pro has excellent defocusing effect when shooting macro, the part in the focal plane is clear and meticulous. At the same time, it can be seen from the macro proofs of this sculpture prop that the OnePlus 7 Pro can be successfully focused when it is very close to the object, and the distance is about 6-8cm.

In the indoor high-contrast proofs below, the exposure control of the hotel room is close to the real scene, and the scenery outside the window is not overexposed. It can be seen that the phone has a high tolerance. Zooming in on the dark part of the shadow in the room, the noise is not very obvious, but it looks a bit “meat”, the sharpness is somewhat lacking, and there is a certain ringing effect on the edge of the contour of the sofa leg.

OnePlus 7 Pro also has a 16-megapixel super wide-angle lens. In super wide-angle mode, it is suitable for shooting some landscape photos with great scenes. The photos will be more powerful, but usually, the edges of the wide-angle lens will have a certain degree of distortion. In the OnePlus 7 Pro, the distortion correction function has been added, and you can choose to turn it on or off in the settings.

Comparing the sample of the distortion correction off and on, we can see that the distortion corrected frame is smaller than the uncorrected one. Before the correction, the slightly curved flagpole becomes more straight after correction. It does not seem to be just in the It is as simple as doing frame cropping on the basis of turning on the correction.

In terms of portrait mode, the performance of  OnePlus 7 Pro is quite satisfactory, and there will still be some flaws when the portrait and background are separated, but the overall higher contrast of the sample makes the picture layered, and the bokeh part is more natural, and the visual distance is closer to the aperture. The effect of blurring.

Next is the night proof. Street lights, neon lights, not the ultimate low light scene, OnePlus 7 Pro presented proofs at first glance to see sufficient exposure, and high purity, while the street across the neon billboards controls the high light spill Ok, showing a good tolerance.

In addition, the glare control of the street light is also good, there is no obvious vignette or purple spot in the picture. After zooming in on the sample, you can see that certain smears and details are lost, but the base of the resolution of 48 Megapixels is good, and some text on the small billboards across the street can be faintly discernible.

The next one can also be seen that the performance of OnePlus 7 Pro night latitude is not bad, there is basically no high-light exposure in the highlights of the convenience store, the details are rich, and there is no black outside the convenience store, the pavement in front of the door The brightness is sufficient, and the sky and the shadows in the distance are also photographed.

Overall, the overall camera quality of the three cameras behind the OnePlus 7 Pro is still very good, especially the 48 Megapixel main camera, which can produce satisfactory photos both day and night. However, there are still some shortcomings on this basis. For example, there is a certain sense of smearing after the image is enlarged, the resolution of the day is weak when the light is weak, and the difference between the imaging styles of the main camera and the telephoto lens is large. Make up for the system update.

Let’s talk about the self-timer, OnePlus 7 Pro is equipped with a 16 Megapixel front camera, Sony IMX471 sensor, unit pixel size up to 1.0μm, f / 2.0 aperture, straight face parameters are more eye-catching. When actually taking pictures, OnePlus 7 Pro is more focused on the real performance in the standard self-timer mode, the color is light, and there is not much modification.

Hardware & Performance

As a flagship product, the OnePlus 7 Pro mobile phone is equipped with no accidents is the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. The Snapdragon 855 uses a 7nm process with a single core frequency of up to 2.84GHz. The combined computing power is 45% higher than the previous generation (SD845). The Adreno 640 graphics processor has 20% higher graphics processing power and 20% lower power consumption. AI performance increased by 3 times.

This is a top-of-the-line version of the 12GB storage +256GB storage. It is equipped with UFS 3.0 flash memory. The read/write speed is 79% higher than that of UFS 2.1, and the memory is LPDDR4X four-channel memory.

When investigating the specific performance of a plus 7 Pro, Among them, Antutu runs into 357485 points, GeekBench single-core run is divided into 3767, multi-core running points. It is 10760.

The AndroBench runs in a sequential read speed of 1473.88 MB/s, a sequential write speed of 373.9 MB/s, a random read speed of 172.54 MB/s, and a random write speed of 28.85 MB/s. Judging from the scores of the running points, the performance of the OnePlus 7 Pro is clearly in the top ranks.

In the actual test, the average frame rate of “Crash 3” may be about 50 frames due to the fact that the OnePlus 7 Pro uses a 2K resolution screen. After 30 minutes of gameplay, the average surface temperature of the phone is 34 ° C, the highest temperature is 36.5 ° C, the camera and the top frame are the areas where the heat source is concentrated.

When testing “Vanity”, no matter how you try to lock 60 frames, although this frame rate is already very smooth for the game experience, considering the 90Hz screen used by the OnePlus 7 Pro, it does not play this screen. The biggest effect, it seems that the hardware is at the same time, the support of the software ecology is also very important. In terms of fever, when “Vanity” is carried out, the average temperature of OnePlus 7 Pro is 31 ° C, and the highest temperature is 32.7 ° C, which also appears in the frame portion.

Wild performance output has always been one of the labels of a plus mobile phone, OnePlus 7 Pro is no exception, and the power consumption control due to the 7nm process of the Snapdragon 855, plus the ten layers of the phone itself The liquid cooling system, OnePlus 7 Pro is also ideal for running the heat control of the current mainstream large games.

However, compared with the rapid growth of hardware performance, whether the content of games and other aspects can keep up with the speed of hardware changes, In terms of games, it is currently possible to squeeze out the dragon. The Snapdragon 855 performance content works are rare, and most of them are relatively small, or there are platform optimization problems. And if it is not a performance enthusiast, even if it will deal with some high-pressure processing scenarios, OnePlus 7 Pro can handle it. In short, if you plan to start with a OnePlus 7 Pro, at least in terms of performance can be innocent.

Battery

OnePlus 7 Pro equipped with 4000mAh battery, with Warp 30 flash charge (5V/6A), Warp 30 flash charge is OnePlus last year in a OnePlus 6T McLaren customized version of the phone, under the support of 30W charging power The charging peak speed can theoretically increase by 50% compared to Dash flash charging.

Verdict

After a period of experience and specific testing, first thought that OnePlus 7 Pro may be the most complete mobile phone in history. Of course, as a normal paced brand of two flagship mobile phones for one year, all of them are all flagship models. In the past, OnePlus mobile phones paid more attention to performance and fluency, and the performance on the overall appearance was relatively cold.

But we can see on a OnePlus 7 Pro that it can bring almost all the elements of the current flagship model on the market: it has an excellent screen with a higher screen ratio and has a pop-up front camera. Hyperbolic screen, the design is more mature than the previous products, there are better three-shot rear photography, top performance, and better daily use and gaming experience brought by a linear motor, 30W The fast charge, the endurance level is also powerful, and the panoramic sound brought by the dual stereo speakers…

We try to enumerate these elements, and then use this as a demanding standard to do a layer screening of the current flagship models on the market. OnePlus 7 Pro will definitely be one of the last products left. In other words, if you are a user who does not necessarily have the ultimate in flagship phone requirements but wants a comprehensive and complete experience, then OnePlus 7 Pro may be one of your few options.

This year, the version of the OnePlus 7 Pro will be launched on the basis of OnePlus 7.
