Underwater OnePlus 7 Pro Review

  • Published on May 14, 2019
  • My review and water test of the OnePlus 7 Pro. This is the fastest android phone on the market - has no notch, no hole but is somehow VERY water resistant.
    OP7 Pro - amzn.to/2WIlJ1J
    The pop-up camera on the OnePlus 7 allows this camera to have a completely clean front with no protrusions or visual obstructions. The curved edges look awesome but it's a change to the oneplus design that can hinder usability.

    The distortion and shimmering water in the jug made the phone look like it was turning off constantly. I was so distracted. Thanks for watching!
    Is the OnePlus 7 what you hoped for? Is it too expensive for what it is?

    I worked in tech manufacturing. Get your device ip rated can be expensive.
    Also just get your users to test it.
    Honestly if this one plus were to be in rated it would def be on the high end

    I really love this phone. I was considering the XR or the S10e.. But this is beautiful. And I'm a big OS guy, that's why I've stayed away from Samsung and Android for years. But OxygenOS looks smooth and effortless. And now I know I can take this phone in the shower with me. I'm pretty much sold. 700$ for 8gb of RAM and 256gb of storage.

    The thing that saved the mechanism from dying in water when you opened up the pop up camera was the orientation of the device.
    Had it been correct side up, water would have trickled into the opening. Honest review as always though 👍

    this phone is heavily praised. none of the reviews I've watched about the Oneplus 7 pro (or any Oneplus phone in fact) only work on T-mobile in the states. however this is i think i read that the pro works on Verizon now. but that's still too few for a phone that also says its carrier unlocked.

    Front facing camera unlock in my experience(I have the S10+ as well) is as fast as the S10, my issue is if you edit the dpi settings of ui in developer options, the light for the optical finger print sensor is moved further up making the fingerprint sensor practically worthless. Longevity will tell how the Front facing camera holds up, screen is fantastic, and its the first phone ive brought home the SO loves due to the front camera hiding itself. Good to know rain and a splash wont hurt it Dave.

    I don't know guys, I got my Galaxy S10+ on eBay for $800 in the US (snapdragon variant) and love it. I do want wireless charging etc and it's a gorgeous screen too. The 60hz refresh rate doesn't bother me. I have my new iPad pro with 120hz and it's not that different. This is a great phone for One Plus but can't beat the GS10+ for $800 or so.

    The 7 isn't available in the US. The 7 undercut the 6T in those markets but the 6t is barely discounted in the US. I'll stick to LG for value

    Great review as usual Dave. I'm not sure why everyone is harping on the price. The budget options are still available for sale and, most important to me, expensive != a lack of value! Value for me is a price that directly correlates to the value you get from the components and software in the product. Often times, more expensive phones with longer lifespans, quality of software, and resale value provide more VALUE than budget options. But I agree that 1+ is changing from the budget-priced, flagship killer that the 1+1 was. Still, with flagships costing over $1k, I still think they are doing pretty well.

    90hz refresh rate works only for screen navigation not for games and other apps.
    Games have not optimized for 90hz refresh rate.
    Next time you do a video have some research before saying something!

    For those calling it in one take, have a look at the timer running and the video time, the video time is lagging behind, means it's not only edited, fast forwarded, but the way he held the phone in the start, also meant there was some sort of protective coating on it to start with! Common!
