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?

  • Максим Власов

    Телефон жив, но через месяцок будет деградация железа, т.к внутрь все таки попала вода и кстати говоря попала она туда с помощью встроенной камеры

    Be careful, Oneplus doesn't take responsibility for any water damage, they even claim that the phone is not water resistant, but water splashing resistent.
    My new oneplus 7 pro 12gb got on 5 cm of water for less than 1 minute and the screen stopped working. Oneplus doesn’t assume manufacturing defect.
    Never had any problem with my Samsung S8.
    I don't recommend buying oneplus phone for this price tag, especially when you can buy an S10 plus for the same price or even cheaper.

    completely agree about the curved edges. I dont like them. Hopefully moving forward oneplus decide to stop copying samsung and lose the crappy curved front edged sides. Great video Dave. The anxiety was real :D I own a oneplus 6t but im going to wait to see what the one plus 8 brings to the table

    The main problem with the oneplus brand is the lack of support. I legit cannot find a store that sells cases and other accessories for this phone. Everything has to be shipped in on Amazon.

    My Oneplus 7 upon small splashes in the rain the display got lines on them and the audio became muffled from the ear piece and upon enquiry they say I won't get any sort of service other than to pay for the whole unit.

    From an s8 plus to this awesomeness. the pop up camera is great mainly cuz I don't even use a front camera. I got it cuz it's cheaper and pretty much on the same level as samsung...

    SLEVIN SHAFEL 6 days ago

    8:27 Like samsung make in the past start like killer bla bla. and when they have gain the trust of users and make the name as brand start overprice it.
    So if you want tostart company mobile just buy last Qwalcom procesor and sell it with ZERO benefits. And after you gain the trust of user and free ads from "KILER...bla bla" you can have gains. Easy just go to China to manufacture it. You can START crowfunding it or do like Xiaomi sell product before they are maked so you dont have to risk your won money.
    Why i dont make it? because i like propulsion sistem not gadgets.

    • Noah_anderz
      Noah_anderz 9 days ago

      @Paul Oppermann I never said anything about the OnePlus 7 pro being budget, it's obviously not doesn't take a genius to work that one out but in the past OnePlus has focused on packing a big punch in performance for a much reduced price. Budget has always been a part of the OnePlus brand, hence why even now with the OP7 Pro they still have the standard OP7 for the people who are on a tighter budget.

    • Paul Oppermann
      Paul Oppermann 9 days ago

    • Noah_anderz
      Noah_anderz 9 days ago

      I hope you're joking, OnePlus' trick that they brought to they table is that they pack such a punch on a budget compared to other flagships, budget has ALWAYS been a part of the OnePlus brand.

    What people don't understand is that One Plus uses all the same techniques to waterproof their phones. The seals and rubber gaskets are used throughout the industry. They just don't pay the 3rd party company to test it for them so they technically can't claim an IP rating although they take the same precautions and strive for the same if not better build integrity than the bigger brands.

    I have this phone..I had some of the best Samsungs,like my Note,and I LOVE the 7Pro..I dont like no headphone jack,yet that's all i miss.Now as for the face unlock and other things mentioned;if we want to FIND something to call an issue,we will,if we're that petty.NO phone has everything,and even the Note 9,which is what i really wanted,is just too damn expensive.Plus,where other phones had some lag,the 7Pro is the exact opposite,so if you breathe near this phone,about 5 pages open up.I never had an emergency enough that I could not wait a couple of seconds to unlock my phone.That's like me saying I wanted my new Mustang to go 250 mph like the last one,and this new one only goes 240,like it really matters..

    Now that I've been using this phone for a couple days I have noticed that it is not always 100% fluent for me, especially when swiping from an app to the home screen and sometimes it even lags a little when scrolling through my USclip feed. The stutters I'm experiencing are rather minor but they are really noticeable due to the rest of the animations being so fluent (90hz display).
