Review OnePlus 8 Pro: now it has everything

This year for the OnePlus can be called unusual: the company is preparing the debut of a fully wireless headphones and the first time a mainstream smartphone. But, most importantly, the company finally moved away from the strategy of «maximum performance at minimum price.» OnePlus series 8 remember the slogan «flagship killer», which was advertised OnePlus One in 2014, it just will not work.

However, a significant increase in the cost allowed the manufacturer to implement in smartphones, those chips that used to specify the list of benefits does not work because of their high cost. Find out if OnePlus ultimate is the flagship?

Design and display

Somehow, OnePlus decided not to pursue the idea of a round block of main camera, which is implemented in the OnePlus 7T. Fresh flagship externally can be distinguished from OnePlus 7 Pro only by the number of photosensors in the back and the hole in the display for selfie camera (from last year’s smartphone that is hidden in drawer unit). Although the most careful to pay attention to the new logo.

Judging by the comments on the network, most users prefer retractable front module as 7 Pro / 7T Pro. It is clear from the aesthetic side, but that has enough drawbacks: construction takes the body a lot of space and deprives the smartphone quality protection. In OnePlus 8 Pro, including through the transition to a «hole» in the screen was able to increase the capacity of the battery and maintain protection IP68 — but more on that later.

The flagship is available in three colors: glossy Black and matte Onyx Glacial Green or Ultramarine Blue. The first quite boring, the latter is perhaps too blue (the shade 7 Pro was better, I think), Glacial remains Green. On most photos on the net it’s just green, although in living color shimmers c pale turquoise to dark green — it looks cool. And a single plus sign for frosted glass Gorilla Glass.

The buttons and connectors, everything is standard: power key and the lever to change sound modes on the right, volume rocker on the left, on the bottom face symmetrically placed USB 3.1 Type-C, the main speaker, a microphone and two nanoSIM tray.

Immediately I must say that the smartphone giant, and even more than last year’s 7 Pro due to the increased diagonal display. Yes, you get used to it after a couple of days, but fans iPhone SE new from OnePlus is contraindicated. However, the buttons located at a comfortable height, and with the idea that upper elements on the screen to stretch accounts for the second hand cost of dealing even with the advent of the popularity of smartphones 6 inch+ — all the same advantages of the big screen too.

Now for the display. OnePlus it touted almost half of the presentation, he and 10-bit, and HDR10+, and with a peak brightness 1300 nits, and various color palette covers the maximum, and 4096 levels of automatic brightness adjustment is, and even received the highest evaluation labs DisplayMate.

But the harsh reality is: users are faced with several challenges of the matrix. Some have it zelenit at a low brightness, others have some kind of bar at the top, the third — slip artifacts. Some errors have been corrected in software, but judging by the fact that support for OnePlus decided to offer a number of owners of the smartphone an exchange or repair, there are hardware faults.

It is not clear, can count on such help buyers 8 Pro from Russia (most likely not), so that the first instalment is missed, waiting for the debug output. Interestingly, almost every smartphone OnePlus faces a particular problem with the matrix, and Oh, dear, «the eight» is especially sad to see.

But the main feature of screen is the maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. Especially cool effect after switching from a smartphone with a display of 60 Hz. No wonder OnePlus refers to the Fluid AMOLED screen — the picture on it is really like «flows». And running a high frequency at any prescribed resolution, be it FullHD+ or QuadHD+, unlike the flagship one South Korean company.

It is worth mentioning about the noticeable curvature of the screen, leading to glare, potentially costly repairs and the saddest thing of all about the taps. And if the non-retractable camera OnePlus sacrificed beauty for functionality, with the introduction of a curved matrix — on the contrary.

Performance, software and chips

Of course, OnePlus 8 Pro — the «beast»: advanced Snapdragon chipset, fast memory and LPDDR5 UFS drive 3.0 with «uluchshiteli» Turbo Write and Host Performance Booster doing its job. That applies to the operation of the system, and games — all super fast and superpawn. Don’t know what else to add, in this aspect, the smartphone will not disappoint.

In AnTuTu Benchmark our version of 12+256GB gaining 598 166 points in GeekBench 5 — 903 points in single-core and 3344 points in multi-core tests. This is not a record, but for any performance goals will be enough.

Perhaps the greatest advantage not only OnePlus 8 Pro, but all smartphones of the company is a shell OxygenOS. She embodies exactly what you want a «clean» Android with a splash of useful chips. For the eighth series producer rewrote all of the animations and worked on the dark theme and embedded option Live Caption from Google (here it’s called «Auto subtitles»). And recently, OnePlus announced plans for the next innovations.

By the way, bonus: all buyers of «eights» and the younger, and older will get 100 GB space in Google One (aka Google Drive) free for three months. A trifle, but nice.

One of the main complaints about the smartphone OnePlus any longer: 8 Pro has finally received support for wireless charging. Yes, some by as much as 30 watts. It’s not the best on the market indicator, but for half an hour 50% of capacity without wires is cool. But this is implemented only using the proprietary charger. With a built-in fan!

Wired Warp Charge 30T allows you to fill the battery half even faster, in 23 minutes.

The stated standard of protection of IP68 allows you to immerse your smartphone under water to a depth of not more than a meter not more than half an hour. However, if OnePlus like any other manufacturer, will not repair or change the smartphone is under warranty, so abuse this opportunity is not worth it. However, the compatibility degree of protection IP another long awaited for fans of OnePlus innovation 8 Pro.


In OnePlus 8 Pro has four image sensor at the back and one in front. Briefly about the front-facing camera: 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 with an aperture of f/2,45, shoots well, but in low light it is noticeable that the details on the face are lubricated — is a minus.

In the back of the camera varied. There are clear wide-angle Sony IMX689 48 MP (output resolution to 12 MP) aperture f/1,78, «swearshirt» is also a 48-megapixel, but with an aperture of f/2.2, and a telephoto lens at 8 MP (f/2,44) can triple zoom «without loss» (that is, not purely optical), and a 30-fold digital zoom. Optical stabilization is tallensi and the main sensor. And there is another mysterious Color Filter 5 MP — he was the most interesting.

This sensor when you turn on the filter «Photochrom» captures some part of the infrared spectrum, allowing to Shine through some objects: for example, plastic, glass or liquid. Some even managed to enlighten loose clothes. The latter fact has forced OnePlus to apologize — the company explained that the General laid this functionality. For Chinese firmware version «Photochrom» generally cut out, promising to return the filter after completion.

The flagship is not exactly top of the photo on the market, losing and Google Pixel, and iPhone, and Huawei, but colors and detail in good light behind slightly. I would like to note the option Nightscape 3.0 — night mode at OnePlus are really good and sometimes it results I like more than what is obtained at the output Pixel.

The real work

The battery life varies greatly depending on the active display mode. You can enable 120 Hz at peak resolution QuadHD+, while squeeze all available 1300 neath and put the smartphone in a few hours of active work. And you can be more wise to choose, for example, [email protected] Hz or less pleasant to use from it will not, but in this mode, the phone will make it through the day with small. And no need to look at an impressive 4510 mAh in the specifications, such capacity is only needed in order to provide all bells and whistles, but not for stretching fun for two or three days.

Remembering the beauty of OxygenOS: the lack of graphical bells and whistles significantly helps in speed. OnePlus 8 Pro is not the only one with this set of iron, but certainly one of the quickest. I think the comments about smooth, any mobile games too redundant.

The fingerprint scanner hidden under the screen, works pretty fast but not so accurate as we would like: sometimes you have to hold the finger again, changing his location. And as practice shows, it is not particularly trained with time.


I must admit that I’m a fan of OnePlus — I had One, OnePlus 3T and 7. And OnePlus 8 Pro finally have everything what I could wish for — high display rate, moisture proof, wireless charging, high-quality shell, a decent (if not better) camera.

No cons, not really too cost — flanged edges of the screen, very very huge size no alternative (8 OnePlus loses on a number of parameters Pro version), the potential problems with the matrix. Someone can scare and a cutout for the selfie camera, but now he does not mind: it is clear that this is only a stage on the way to podanym sensors.

But most importantly, the smartphone has become much more expensive and is already close to this parameter to the flagships of Samsung, Huawei and Google minimal version costs $ 899 (~64 400 rubles) — «Yandex.Market» from 65 000 rubles. But the lack of it? Without increasing the cost the company would be unable to implement all of these chips. In my opinion, OnePlus 8 Pro justifies its price tag with a vengeance.

Google исправляет баг, который приводил к сбою Android при установке снимка на обои

Error occurs when calculating the brightness of each pixel to convert the formula .2126f * r + .7152f * g + .0722f * b where r, g and b values of red, green and blue colors, represented in 8-bit values from 0 to 255. The final value is rounded.

In this particular image the RGB values of one pixel equal to 255, 255, 243. Substituting them into the formula, after rounding results in a value of 256 — which is more than the maximum possible (255). This leads to crash of System UI and sometimes the entire system.
