  • the one plus seven was just announced
  • it's a phone that I've actually been
  • using for the past couple of weeks and I
  • thought I would do a user experience
  • review on it while also doing the water
  • test now normally I would do a water
  • test on this phone and then give you
  • guys as a results but because of the
  • nature of this phone I worried about its
  • ability to survive this water test it's
  • not kind of IP rated and there's some
  • features which we'll get into later that
  • kind of make it seem like it's more
  • susceptible to water damage so I'm gonna
  • start the timer drop it in and then
  • start this review because I feel like
  • that's the only way you can really do
  • this I really don't want to drop this in
  • actually I got to redo that timer
  • I started it's eight seconds early okay
  • starting now can we still see that sure
  • let's roll with it okay one plus seven
  • pro the most kind of pertinent feature
  • of this phone is the screen it's a high
  • resolution screen 1440p higher than any
  • other oneplus phone to this date and
  • it's also a larger screen it's a phone
  • that's really big if you look at
  • pictures and stuff it doesn't give a
  • clear example of actually how big this
  • phone is it's something you actually
  • want to pick up and try in a store if
  • you can before you purchase it because
  • it is a noticeably bigger phone now the
  • two main features of this screen are the
  • 90 Hertz refresh rate as well is the
  • fact that it has no notch or no kind of
  • cutouts or any kind of disruptions in
  • the display while you're using the front
  • panel so the 90 Hertz refresh is
  • something that if you've never seen it
  • before
  • it's very difficult to showcase this in
  • a video it's difficult because these
  • videos are shot at 24 frames per second
  • and what you're seeing is happening at
  • 60 or 90 frames per second basically the
  • whole UI the whole phone becomes
  • significantly smoother than it actually
  • that's all gone it blacked out for a
  • second I thought I think my periphery
  • and it tilts us a little bit so I can
  • see it a little bit better
  • okay but it just looks really smooth if
  • you can experience this thing in real
  • life you'll notice it but I shot some
  • slow-motion of this just to kind of
  • showcase to the best of my ability a
  • high refresh screen on a phone looks
  • much better than a 60 frames per second
  • screen so the traditional kind of
  • smartphone screen were used to 60 frames
  • per second 90 frames per second you're
  • seeing a lot more frames a lot more
  • animation frames everything looks better
  • James you I just browsing around on the
  • web on reddit everything looks super
  • smooth it supposedly uses a little bit
  • more battery I didn't really notice that
  • much a difference between running at 60
  • frames per second versus 90 but there is
  • supposed to be a battery difference
  • between the two settings the removal of
  • the notch is actually something looks
  • really nice a lot of companies have been
  • in pursuit of that completely clean
  • front-facing screen these guys have
  • achieved it obviously they've done a
  • kind of trick with the camera to do it
  • but it is a very clean looking front and
  • I think it makes content or any kind of
  • anything on your phone look really nice
  • now there is one feature of the screen
  • that I don't love
  • it's the edges so if you've used any
  • kind of oneplus one in the past they
  • have a flat surface like a flat glass
  • surface the oneplus 7 pro has a curved
  • edge i I wish I'd pull it out of there
  • right now but it's basically like the
  • curved edge of a samsung phone so it's
  • got this curvature to the display that
  • honestly looks really cool in pictures
  • I've talked about some previous videos
  • illustrating videos looks great in
  • commercials and pictures but in terms of
  • functionality it doesn't really bring
  • all that much to the table so I feel
  • like for a lot of users if you're not
  • used to that curved screen and you're
  • just used to the regular kind of 1 plus
  • flat display it's gonna be something
  • that you have to either get used to or
  • you'll just really dislike regardless of
  • how much you use it and I'm personally
  • someone that prefers that flat display
  • so I'll got to be honest I don't like
  • that curved edge it's something that I
  • personally don't really like very much
  • but the display is fantastic I'd say
  • it's actually one of the best-looking
  • displays in the entire market really
  • high brightness good colors with high
  • refresh and it's got that completely
  • notch las'
  • whole this image up front which I really
  • like now the purpose of this completely
  • clean front is so that it looks a
  • particular way but to achieve this they
  • had to use this weird camera mechanism
  • so the camera is on this motorized
  • mechanism that you have to activate to
  • pop-up so if you're taking a selfie you
  • press the button and it will pop up but
  • when it's retracted it just tucks into
  • the machine you can't see any of the
  • front-facing camera lenses or anything
  • like that it pops up pretty quickly
  • press the button and you're good to go
  • when it comes to stuff like face unlock
  • it's a little bit different than normal
  • so if you activate face unlock it'll pop
  • up it'll recognize your face and then
  • I'll pop back down and it's actually
  • slow enough like that whole process of
  • it popping up and popping back down is
  • slow enough that it makes me not want to
  • use face unlock which is unfortunate
  • because oneplus phones have extremely
  • fast face unlock features on the oneplus
  • 60 it's like you could look at it the
  • wrong way it'll unlock it's that quick
  • and it's kind of annoying that you now
  • have to deal with a slower kind of face
  • unlock time because of it I've actually
  • resorted to using the fingerprint sensor
  • it's a very fast fingerprint sensor on
  • the oneplus 7 pro but it's just
  • something that I wish I mean there's not
  • much they could have done I'll be honest
  • they probably couldn't make it pop up
  • and pop back down any faster but it is
  • an issue and I think most people that
  • pick up this phone will be leaning
  • towards that fingerprint unlock instead
  • of the face unlock the pop-up camera
  • also has this feature that's kind of
  • like a fall sensor if it detects a big
  • enough shift in the accelerometer it'll
  • actually retract the camera in an
  • attempt to close up the camera system
  • before it hits the ground it's kind of a
  • safety mechanism and it's cool that they
  • thought of that there's a couple other
  • noteworthy features on the oneplus 7 pro
  • it now has stereo speakers it's
  • something that oneplus phones have been
  • missing for ever and it's nice to
  • finally have them I actually didn't
  • realize it had stereo speakers at first
  • I couldn't read the instruction manual
  • anything I just popped it open I was
  • like wow this sounds a lot better it's
  • been lacking for years it's nice that
  • they have it it also has a new haptic
  • engine if you've used one plus phones in
  • the past you'll recognize that they just
  • don't have a particularly strong
  • vibratory motor it is much improved on
  • seven Pro it honestly feels like any of
  • the best kind of haptic motors on the
  • market it's really nice okay the camera
  • on this phone if you're interested I
  • mean some people don't care about
  • cameras but for the people that do it
  • now rocks a three camera system and I
  • would say that's the biggest improvement
  • in terms of the camera system it forget
  • about the processing and stuff like that
  • the fact that it has a wide angle a
  • standard and a 3x zoom that makes for me
  • personally that just what makes this
  • camera system much more useful and just
  • much better than the previous versions
  • I'm someone that enjoys the wide-angle
  • like that's how I use my smart phones
  • I'd like to take like family pictures
  • and just pictures of stuff and you ought
  • to see more stuff in the photo something
  • I really like but I wouldn't say that
  • the image quality itself has improved a
  • lot
  • it feels very oneplus still like if you
  • zoom in and you look for imperfections
  • you're gonna find them but the image
  • quality on this camera is great it's not
  • the best out there but I'm very
  • satisfied with it I think most people
  • that purchase this phone will be happy
  • with it it's also a very fast phone it's
  • running a Snapdragon 855 it's running
  • ufs 3.0 storage it's like incredibly
  • fast storage speed it's also running up
  • to 12 gigs of RAM on the oneplus 7 pro
  • so speed is not an issue it's a very
  • fast overall system the battery is also
  • quite baked it's a four thousand
  • milliamp hour battery and it's also
  • running warped charged this year so if
  • you're unfamiliar with warped charge its
  • there 30 watt charger it's like it's a
  • very fast charger so it'll fill when I
  • tested this a couple times it filled to
  • full and just under an hour and a half
  • and it hit the 50% mark at around 25
  • minutes it's a it's a very fast charge
  • in terms of battery life I was actually
  • getting around seven to eight hours of
  • screen on time
  • I've actually been playing a lot of this
  • stupid crab game it's a terrible game
  • but I'm addicted to it it's one of those
  • like idle clickers it uses a processor
  • quite heavily and even when I had this
  • thing running I was still getting like a
  • solid seven hours of screen on time
  • every day I want to talk about the
  • pricing on this device so oneplus when
  • they first started put out a $300 phone
  • they were in the business of killing
  • flagships they were making flagship
  • killers for really low pricing and over
  • the years they've kind of bumped up the
  • price a little bit not unexpectedly and
  • so not in a manner that was unfair I
  • felt that it's just normal increases in
  • price and they've come out with a phone
  • that has now $700 now they still have
  • their regular one plus seven like no
  • one's forcing you to buy the one plus
  • seven pro but when I first found out
  • about the pricing I was a little bit
  • disappointed I would consider myself not
  • like an enthusiast like not like a 1
  • plus 7 enthusiast but at least a one
  • plus appreciator
  • I enjoy the brand I like what they've
  • done in the past and I like what they
  • try to do and for them to drop a $700
  • phone felt so out of place for the brand
  • it just didn't feel like one plus like
  • they've always been kind of that budget
  • market and kind of mid tier focusing on
  • value and suddenly they drop a $700
  • phone it feels it felt different it
  • almost felt I was going to use the word
  • offensive that's the wrong word it just
  • felt unlike the brand and I think for a
  • lot of enthusiasts that have been with
  • this brand and kind of like cult members
  • of the 1 plus cult I can understand why
  • people are disappointed that this phone
  • is as expensive as it is but then I took
  • a step back and realized this is not for
  • the people that are buying the 400 or
  • $500 phones this is for a completely
  • different segment of people who are
  • buying phones they still have the
  • regular 1 plus 7 for that mid tier
  • market but they have this for just a
  • completely different segment of users
  • and I like the fact that they did this I
  • liked the fact that they made something
  • that feels different from the other
  • people in that premium market I like the
  • fact that they did this in a smart way
  • they didn't just like copy another brand
  • and take all the regular kind of
  • flagship features and make another
  • version of the superstar brands they
  • made their own variant of it they spent
  • money on the display they skipped on IP
  • rating and stuff like that
  • I'll go I'm surprised it's still going
  • it's been 13 minutes almost it's still
  • alive okay a lot of phone companies
  • right now seem to be trying to extend
  • into that mid tier or even lower to your
  • market like we see Google come out with
  • the pixel 3a and it's interesting to see
  • a company like oneplus kind of move in
  • the opposite direction they've off
  • in the mid-tier market and now they're
  • moving into the more expensive premium
  • segment if you're interested in this
  • device you're probably also looking at
  • the Samsung S 10 plus and it's a phone
  • that can also be purchased for around
  • $700 at this point in time that's just
  • the nature of Samsung's pricing it's
  • gone down to that and if I had to choose
  • between the two the oneplus phone has
  • advantages like a ninety Hertz screen
  • with no knotch
  • with cleaner software and more frequent
  • software updates and the Samsung phone
  • has stuff like wireless charging a
  • headphone jack it has probably better
  • customer support depending on where you
  • live and I think for a lot of people
  • it's a tough decision right it's like do
  • you go with the well-known Samsung brand
  • or do you go with the lesser-known or
  • just less popular oneplus brand that has
  • all this cool stuff and if I had to
  • choose between the two not that I would
  • because truthfully I like smaller phones
  • I've mentioned this earlier in the video
  • but this is a large phone and for me
  • personally this is too big of phone for
  • me but if I had to choose between the
  • two I'd probably choose I'm seeing
  • things I keep I keep thinking that like
  • I'm seeing distortion on the screen but
  • it's not but if I had to choose it would
  • be I would be going for this phone only
  • because of that screen that 90 Hertz
  • screen looks fantastic it's something
  • that no other phone has right now that
  • has all these other features and I think
  • that if you appreciate that stuff like I
  • do like I like high refresh gaming I
  • like high refresh everything all my
  • laptops and displays I try to go for
  • high refresh if you appreciate that
  • stuff if you value that then this is a
  • really good pick up but understand that
  • is a really big phone okay I'm gonna
  • fish this out at this point because it
  • seems like it survived okay
  • it lived I don't want to do the camera
  • like underwater I don't want to maybe I
  • should just to see I feel like this is
  • the thing that's gonna break it but I'm
  • curious it lasted like 16 minutes
  • underwater but I'm gonna do a yeah I'll
  • do it let's just do it so I'm gonna pop
  • at the camera underwater
  • I really don't want to do this but just
  • for the sake of completion cameras
  • extended phone still works
  • I've retracted the camera it's still
  • alive I mean just double-check the
  • camera still works
  • still it pops up it goes back down okay
  • hope you guys enjoyed this video I know
  • a shot and feels very different from my
  • regular videos but I feel like I just
  • had to do it like this because because
  • of the water test thanks for watching
  • thumbs if you liked it subs we loved it
  • see you guys next time

Description

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 - https://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.
