In 2022, since the birth of the OnePlus Ace series, each generation of mobile phones has always been titled “the new benchmark for new performance mobile phones”, marking the re-emergence of OnePlus with a new look and becoming the pioneer brand of OPPO’s flagship performance. After nearly a year, the OnePlus Ace series has ushered in the second generation of iterative products, OnePlus Ace 2, adhering to the concept of “popularizing large memory”, continues to adopt the starting configuration of 12+256GB, eliminating 8GB.
And its mission is to make the flagship experience universal, combining the three key technologies of the newly developed heat dissipation system, memory genetic recombination technology, and super-frame super-picture engine, and once again become a new benchmark for performance phones in the same price segment. The user brings an unprecedented extreme experience.
1. Full blood version of Snapdragon 8+ with 16GB LPDDR5X large memory
OnePlus Ace 2 is equipped with a full-blooded version of Snapdragon 8+ and inherits the memory gene of OnePlus. It is equipped with a maximum of 16GB LPDDR5X memory, plus UFS3.1 flash memory, forming a “performance iron triangle”. Thanks to the LPDDR5X memory, the power consumption is about 26% higher than the LPDDR5 average income. In the game heavy load scenario, the income can even reach 30%. At the same time, LPDDR5X represents the current highest specification memory configuration. It can provide a more stable and smooth memory experience.
In addition, OnePlus Ace 2 has a built-in self-developed memory gene recombination technology. Based on 16GB LPDDR5X large memory, starting from the bottom of the system, with the help of instantaneous bandwidth, asynchronous memory, and other technologies, the number of mobile phone freezes in heavy load scenarios is reduced by 50%. , greatly improving the experience of using mobile phones in highly complex scenarios. At the same time, with these two technologies, it has won the 48-month A-level fluency certification in South Germany and the A+ certification of SGS human fluency.
2. The super-frame super-picture engine brings a comprehensive 120-frame revolutionary gaming experience
To maximize the performance of the game, OnePlus Ace2 is equipped with two technologies, the exclusively developed super frame super picture engine, and the HyPerBoost2.0 game frame stabilization engine. super native.
At the same time, through the advanced screen frame interpolation algorithm and non-sensing frame interpolation technology, games that do not support high frames can realize the revolutionary experience of “full 120 frames”, and support the 120 frame mode of hundreds of games, even including relatively unpopular ones. The vertical mobile game is far ahead in the industry.
OnePlus Ace 2, through so many new technologies for game development, has pushed the experience of mobile games to a new height in the industry, which is enough to show OnePlus’ unparalleled determination and belief in the field of games.
3. 5177mm² eight-channel all-through VC, the strongest heat dissipation system in the history of the OnePlus
To ensure the stable frame of the game and the control of power consumption, OnePlus Ace2 has developed a brand-new “phase-change graphene” material, which can absorb a lot of heat through solid-liquid dual-form transformation and bring super heat dissipation capacity.
The configured 5177 mm² eight-channel full-through VC heat dissipation is also the most complex design and most difficult process VC liquid cooling heat dissipation system in the industry. Eight heat dissipation circulation channels have been specially designed in the heat source area and condensation area to make the heat spread more evenly. Cooperate with the above-mentioned new materials for strong heat dissipation, to achieve more balanced heat dissipation.
4. The Ace series is first equipped with a three-stage switch
OnePlus digital series flagship phones have always been equipped with a three-stage volume adjustment switch, but it has never been equipped with the OnePlus Ace series.
OnePlus Ace 2 introduces the three-stage switch into the Ace series for the first time, and the three states of “ring-vibration-mute” can be switched with one button by gently pressing the physical button, which is simple in actual use. A function that you can’t go back to after using it.
Design and Appearance
OnePlus Ace2 is different from the tough straight screen of the previous generation. It uses a slightly curved screen, which is rigid but soft. The 6.74-inch screen is just right in the hand.
It is worth mentioning that OnePlus Ace2 is the world’s first 1.5K Consonance touch screen with a resolution of 2772×1240 and an equivalent PPI of 368, supplemented by a touch sampling rate of up to 720Hz (in game mode). , and then tuned the bottom layer of the touch control to achieve a 1000Hz instantaneous touch sampling rate, and also has a 2160Hz high-frequency PWM dimming.
Such a high-standard screen has become the only mobile phone that has passed the “South German TUV Precision Touch S-Class Certification”.A 16-megapixel front-facing camera is placed in the center above the screen, and a hidden micro-slit earpiece is used on the top.
The frame on the side of the phone is well connected with the screen and the back panel, without any gaps in the middle, and the grip is comfortable. It is worth mentioning that on the right side of the phone, we can see a three-stage switch. This is the first time that the OnePlus Ace series has used the function of the digital series. The damping and the side cut corners bring a metal high-gloss texture, and you can switch between the three states of “mute-vibration-ring” with a single flick.
The color we got from KuaiTech is glacier blue, which is paired with the exclusive silk glass craft, with sand on the slippery surface, bringing a more comfortable feel. The lens module of the OnePlus Ace2 is different from the square design of the previous generation. Instead, it uses a digital series of ring lenses, engraving a circle of beams that spread outward, and the texture is instantly full.
OnePlus Ace2 uses an infrared remote control sensor for the first time, which can be seen on the right end of the top. It can control traditional infrared home appliances. Although it is not an important function, it is also very good for emergencies when the remote control cannot be found.
OnePlus Ace2 has a speaker opening on the top, which forms a stereo field with the bottom speaker. The Type-C interface is in the center, and the microphone and SIM card slot are on the right. OnePlus Ace2 supports 100W long-life flash charging and comes standard with a 100W fast charging adapter.
OnePlus Ace2 uses the full-blooded version of the Snapdragon 8+ mobile platform, supplemented by the latest 16GB LPDDR5X 3200MHz memory and UFS 3.1 flash memory. Next, we will conduct a set of theoretical performance benchmark tests.
The first is the AnTuTu comprehensive performance test. The comprehensive score reached 1.14 million+. Compared with the Dimensity 8100-MAX processor equipped with the previous generation OnePlus Ace, the performance has improved by about 39%. Among them, the CPU score is 274,000, and the GPU score is close to 48.5. 10,000, nearly 35.4% and 53% respectively. On the whole, the GPU capability improvement is still very obvious.
In the CPU single test, the single-core score is 1317, which is 38.6% higher than OnePlus Ace, and the multi-core score is 4041, which is a year-on-year increase of 7.5%.
When using GFXBench for GPU testing, we selected six 1080P sub-items for testing, and the final scores of Aztec Ruins OpenGL, Aztec Ruins Vulkan, Racing Chase, Manhattan 3.1, Manhattan, and Tyrannosaurus Rex were 123FPS and 134FPS respectively. , 103FPS, 179FPS, 259FPS, 443FPS.
Theoretically speaking, as the temperature of the mobile phone continues to rise, there is a high probability that it will lead to frequency reduction, so the frame rate of the test item will also drop slightly. It is also quite ideal to be able to run such a frame rate in the off-screen test. Compared with the down-frequency version of the Snapdragon 8+, it has a nearly 2% lead.
The last is the Androbench storage test, the sequential read speed reaches 1843.06MB/s, the sequential write speed reaches 1723.11MB/s, the random read speed reaches 279.02MB/s, and the random write speed reaches 347.61MB/s, line with UFS 3.1 level.
OnePlus Ace2 is equipped with three self-developed technologies of superframe super picture engine, HyperBoost2.0 game frame stabilization engine, and game cloud computing private network, which realizes high resolution in the game (1.5K resolution same as the screen) and high HDR picture High-quality output, low-latency and high-stability ultimate gaming experience, and even a 60-frame game can be inserted to 120 frames at one time, further improving the smoothness of the overall game screen.
In this regard, we also conducted a game test on it. In an indoor office environment of 24 degrees Celsius, we selected three representative mainstream mobile game masterpieces, “Peace Elite”, “Glory of the King” and “Yuan Shen”, and record the frame rate, power consumption, and temperature performance during the game.
In addition, we also tested a relatively unpopular vertical screen game “Subway Surfers” to show the wide range of OnePlus Ace2’s superframe adaptation to the game.
1. Peace Elite
We will open the HDR high-definition picture quality + extreme frame rate of the Peace Elite mobile game, and the game will run at a maximum of 60FPS. After we turn on the frame insertion function of the game, it will run at 120FPS. During the game, you can feel the improvement in screen fluency Still very big.
After Kuaitech’s test, the game’s native frame rate is up to 40FPS, and the 120FPS screen is obtained after 3 times frame interpolation, to ensure the smoothness and continuity of the game screen.
Therefore, for the sake of fairness, we turn off the game frame insertion mode and record the frame rate and temperature during the game.
After a game of nearly 15 minutes of testing, the average frame rate reached 59.7FPS, the frame rate variance was only 1.2, and the frame rate of the entire game was almost maintained on a horizontal line.
During the game, the Cortex X2 large-core scheduling of the full-blooded version of the Snapdragon 8+ is more aggressive, frequently rushing to 2.3GHz, while the 3 Cortex-A710 cores remain in the range of 1.5GHz~1.9GHz, and the 4 Cortex-A510 It is maintained at 1.056GHz~1.44GHz.
OnePlus Ace2 uses a dual-cell battery, and the average power consumption of the game for nearly 15 minutes reaches about 3.7W.
In terms of temperature, the highest temperature on the front of the phone is 39.8 degrees Celsius, and the highest temperature on the back of the phone is 37.8 degrees Celsius. Holding it with both hands will not feel obvious heat.
2. Glory of Kings
The glory of Kings mobile game is the extreme picture quality + ultra-high resolution, and the extremely high frame rate mode is turned on. The game runs at the native 120FPS. After a game of nearly 15 minutes of testing, the frame rate dropped slightly in the past 14 minutes, but It does not affect the overall fluency of the game, and the final average frame rate reaches 120.5FPS, with a frame rate variance of 3.5.
In terms of core opening, the Cortex-X2 large core is up to 2.592GHz, the Cortex-A710 medium core is up to 2.457GHz, and the small core is up to 1.67GHz. In terms of power consumption, the 120Hz game also brings a higher load to OnePlus Ace2, and the average power consumption reaches about 4.5W.
In terms of temperature, the front of the phone is up to 40.3 degrees Celsius, and the back is up to 37.8 degrees Celsius. Such temperature control is relatively normal.
3. Original God
With the highest image quality and high frame rate turned on, Yuanshen mobile game can also reach a maximum of 123FPS after frame insertion. We turned off the frame insertion function of the game and tested the frame rate, power consumption, and temperature.
After 15 minutes of running the map test, the overall frame rate fluctuates around 55~60FPS, the average frame rate reaches 58.7FPS, and the frame rate variance in the game reaches 1.9. There is almost no pressure to deal with such a high-load mobile game.
In terms of core opening, the Cortex-X2 large core can reach up to 2.316GHz, the Cortex-A710 medium core can reach up to 1.996GHz, and the small core can reach up to 1.44GHz.
In terms of power consumption, the large core and medium core run at high frequency for a long time, resulting in an increase in power consumption to nearly 5.866W. It seems that OnePlus Ace2 is still very aggressive in terms of performance release.
High power consumption also brings high heat. The highest temperature on the front of the phone is 41.5 degrees Celsius, and the highest temperature on the back of the phone is also 39 degrees Celsius. Holding the phone with both hands will be hot, and some people may even be unable to hold the phone.
4. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers is a vertical mobile game, but OnePlus Ace2 has also super-framed the game to 120 frames through the super-frame super-picture engine.
We turn on the frame insertion function of the game, and the frame rate can reach 117FPS during the game after testing.
OnePlus Ace2 has a rear three-camera module. The main camera uses OPPO’s first 50MP Sony IMX890 CMOS. The 1μm single pixel can bring a higher amount of light, which can make the picture purer in actual shooting.
- The ultra-wide-angle uses the same 8-megapixel sensor to support 120-degree wide-angle shooting.
- There is also a 2-megapixel macro lens.
Next, let us follow the lens to experience the actual photo performance of the next plus Ace 2.
In the daytime scene, the large-size single-pixel can ensure the purity of the picture, and the transition between the sky and the building is very natural. With a powerful resolution of 50 million pixels, it can shoot samples full of details.
In the night scene, the OIS optical image stabilization supported by OnePlus Ac 2 comes in handy. When the night scene mode is called, the long-exposure shooting has obtained enough stability. Recompile the logic to fully retain the brightness and early information, get the most realistic picture color and restore the clearest details.
It can be seen from the proof that OnePlus Ace2 controls the light quite well, and there is no optical defect when the light is close to direct light.
The ultra-wide-angle lens records a wide picture with a 120-degree ultra-wide viewing angle. At the same time, there is no distortion at both ends of the picture, and it shows the true color very well. Compared with OnePlus Ace, the algorithm is more in place.
OnePlus Ace 2 also supports night scene mode under the ultra-wide-angle lens. We also took several sets of wide-angle night scene samples. The light processing of buildings is very natural, which can fully meet the needs of daily use.
OnePlus Ace 2 is equipped with a 2-megapixel macro lens, which can shoot 4cm macro objects. However, this lens is more susceptible to light interference and is more suitable for daytime shooting. In low-light environments, you can turn on the flash for supplementary light.
OnePlus Ace 2 has a built-in 5000mAh capacity battery, which supports the long-life version of 100W super flash charging. According to the official claim, it can be fully charged in 25 minutes at the fastest.
In addition, OnePlus Ace2 has launched the SUPERVOOC S full-link power management chip for the world’s first time, which integrates the functional modules required by the previous dual-core solution, and has 6 functions charging, discharging, decoding, resetting, security protection, and power-off. Function, fully protect the battery from the beginning to the end when charging.
We tested the power consumption of the OnePlus Ace 2 mobile phone to 1%. It can be charged to 46% in 10 minutes, 85% in 20 minutes, fully charged in 28 minutes, and fully charged in less than half an hour. We can also see The charging of the mobile phone is very fast in the first 20 minutes, and it can quickly return to blood when the mobile phone is out of power.
For the battery life, we use a professional battery life test tool – the battery dog produced by Kuai Technology.
In terms of test items, we chose the extreme power battery life test and checked all the test items including CPU high voltage, CPU multi-threading, AI recognition, picture browsing, video playback, and web browsing to simulate user usage scenarios and restore the real load to the greatest extent. Infinitely close to the real power consumption.
We adjusted the screen refresh rate of the OnePlus Ace 2 to 120Hz, set the brightness to manual 50%, and turned off the automatic brightness for testing.
After the test of the battery dog, it takes 9 hours, 43 minutes, and 13 seconds for the power to be consumed from 100% to 1%. This battery life can meet the daily use time of ordinary users.
This generation of OnePlus Ace2 is quite sincere with the full-blood version of Snapdragon 8+, and it also provides 16GB of large memory, brand new CMOS, and a hyperboloid screen. Compared with the previous generation of the OnePlus Ace, it can be said to be full Orientation progress.
Secondly, in terms of game experience, OnePlus Ace 2 can insert games that do not originally support 120 fps through the three self-developed technologies to achieve the effect of inserting frames to 120 fps, making it the mobile phone that supports the most 120Hz high-frame games in the Android camp.
After a period of experience with the OnePlus Ace 2, we make the following summary:
1. The full-blood version of Snapdragon 8+ and 16GB LPDDR5X does not kill the process in the background
OnePlus Ace2 did not make compromises on the chip. On the contrary, the full-blood version of Snapdragon 8+ and up to 16GB LPDDR5X memory ensure the retention of multiple background processes.
After our testing, the background of three large-scale games including “Original God”, “Peace Elite” and “Glory of the King” are simultaneously opened in the background, and the background applications are randomly switched during the process of using Douyin. The game still maintains a hot start, and the switching process is smooth and easy.
2. The game super frame super picture engine is widely compatible with unpopular games
The game super-frame super-picture engine brought by OnePlus Ace2 is compatible with hundreds of games on the market. Due to time constraints, we have no way to test them one by one, but we have tested several unpopular mobile games, “Subway Run” Cool”, “Temple Run 2”, “Diablo Immortal”, “Defend the Carrot 4” and other games can use this technology to interpolate the 60 frame rate screen to 120Hz, bringing a smooth gaming experience.
3. Full-link power management chip with 100-watt fast charge will not damage the battery
The first full-link power management chip of the OnePlus Ace 2 can not only help the mobile phone to recover blood quickly when charging the mobile phone, but also improve the service life of the battery during the charging process. There is still nearly 80% of the remaining capacity, that is to say, after 4 years of continuous charging, the mobile phone can still maintain the effect of charging once a day.
On the whole, OnePlus Ace2 can be regarded as a sub-flagship mobile phone that focuses on high performance and focuses on gaming experience, and there is no compromise in terms of imaging. The Sony IMX890 is still remarkable in terms of camera capabilities, and the flagship-level hyperbolic screen and three-stage switch are also distributed to the Ace series for the first time, which is enough to prove the sincerity of the OnePlus Ace2 to users.
Therefore, OnePlus Ace2 is a sub-flagship mobile phone not to be missed, whether it is for a game party, beauty party, or student party.
