The photographic performance of OnePlus smartphones has always lagged behind the competition, but the Chinese firm is making progress. The OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, 7T and 7T Pro are all based on the Sony IMX586 48 megapixelsensor. The OnePlus 7 couples it to a 5 Megapixel sensor This is the least complete of the foursome, as the other three carry a triple back sensor complemented by an 8 megapixel (7 Pro/7T Pro) or 12 megapixel (7T) telephoto lens and a 16 megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens.

If the OnePlus 7 is the most enduring of the fours, the 7T is doing rather well considering its equipment with an autonomy that is close to two days of versatile use (gaming, streaming, social networks…).

On the fast charge side, there is Warp Charge 20 on OnePlus 7, Warp Charge 30 on OnePlus 7 Pro and Warp Charge 30T on OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. Of course, the latter is the most interesting as we only need of an hour to fill up.

With top-of-the-range performance, a more complete photo section, an excellent 90 Hz OLED display and a comfortable Battery Life the OnePlus 7T is the bestoption. If you don’t want a curved screen at all costs, there’s no reason not to choose this smartphone, especially since it’s cheaper than the two Pro versions.

The OnePlus 7T has everything to please, or almost. With its sleek design, excellent screen and top-of-the-line performance, it has little to envy the best on the market. Except perhaps its photo part, improved, but still below that of its main rivals. Nevertheless, there is no lack of arguments to make in a highly competitive market.
