OnePlus is all grown now.
After years of walking in the shadows of Apple and Samsung, the Chinese phone maker is stepping into the light and forging a new path with its new Android smartphone, the OnePlus 7 Pro—The OnePlus 7 Pro is finally here, ready to take your portrait with its novel pop-up selfie camera and then dazzle you with its silky-smooth, truly unblemished all-screen display, two features Apple and Samsung can’t match with their market-leading flagship phones.
It’s the latest Android phone from the Chinese brand to outmanoeuvre its top-shelf competition by offering similarly high-end power and features, but at a consumer-friendly lower price point. OnePlus has done it again. But brace yourselves, long-time fans: this new model is more expensive than last year’s OnePlus 6T.
Before getting into the details of just how nice gaming on the OnePlus 7 Pro is, it’s important to draw attention to how big of an impact the display has on the overall gaming experience. While OnePlus has never really focused on creating a gaming phone as such, speed and performance has always been their prerogative. The OnePlus 7 Prxo aids the overall gaming experience with a beautiful 1440p 90Hz AMOLED display, the first of its exact kind to hit the market. Most games can’t utilize the 90Hz display yet, but 1440p gaming on a device that can handle it is blissful. It’s a full display without any interruptions, and the lack of a notch is very noticeable in full-screen applications, such as even just watching YouTube. Couple that with UFS 3.0 and you get incredibly fast loading speeds to boot.
