Released at the end of last year, the OnePlus 7T Pro, sold for €759, received mixed reviews. On the one hand, it was presented as a good high-end device, but at the same time it was criticized for not bringing much compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro, sold at €709.

After a few months of testing with the OnePlus 7T Pro, here are the Advantages and disadvantages of using it.

Processor: power and fluidity

The device has very good technical characteristics in terms of material – which is rather logical considering its price. The Snapdragon 855+ chipset offers better CPU and GPU performance than the OnePlus 7 Pro, the Snapdragon 855. Applications run smoothly, the video is quality and gamers will appreciate the difference.

The 8 GB of RAM make the difference too. Over the entire test period, there is no latency, blocking or slowing down.

The 256GB of internal memory is sufficient in my opinion, so the lack of a MicroSD card slot is not a real problem.

Screen: image quality and ergonomics

The screen is really nice, and it’s not only due to its 90 Hz refresh rate which will be especially useful for big players. The AMOLED panel – 6.67 inches – is really big, at least big enough to watch videos and surf the Internet. Its resolution is 1440 x 3120 pixels (516 ppi). If, like me, you like to avoid using paper, OnePlus 7T Pro can be used with a Bluetooth keyboard, for example to take notes in meetings. Although you will probably have to use your tablet or computer afterwards, it’s not a bad combination.

One feature I particularly like is the OnePlus Playback mode. The fact that the screen becomes monochrome as soon as you launch an application – the one you want – can be a great advantage for eye comfort. Personally, I added it to the quick settings menu so that it can be turned on or off at will. This feature, which goes beyond night mode, comes from OxygenOS, which is based on Android 10. Too bad other manufacturers don’t offer it, it’s a real plus.

The fingerprint reader on the screen is fast and efficient, nothing to complain about. The display has curved edges that are fairly consistent with the high-end phone category. The screen design improves the grip of the device, despite its large size: 75.9 mm wide, 162.6 mm long and 8.8 mm thick, including 6.67 inches for the screen. To be honest, it’s not easy to use for those with small hands.

Material: solid and aesthetic

As far as the hardware design is concerned, the OnePlus 7T Pro is really solid. Despite several falls, some of which were on tile, he has no trace. Both the front and back are designed with 3D Gorilla Glass technology. The blue back is very aesthetic. Despite this, the camera tends to slip, making the use of the transparent case (supplied) almost obligatory. Unfortunately, the case adds a little more thickness and weight, while the phone is already quite heavy (206g), and camouflages the nice design of the curved edges – but not the aesthetics of the blue back.

However, the lack of a PI on dust and water resistance, which is widely present on the other models of this range, is a cause for concern. The OnePlus 7T Pro does not have a jack socket, so a wireless headset must be used or plugged into the USB-C socket.

Heavy use has put the 4085 mAh battery to the test, sometimes draining it by as much as 30 percent of its capacity. Even so, the rapid charge (30 W) – which OnePlus calls Warp Charge – has been a blessing: after half an hour of charging, or the time it takes to prepare a meal, the phone goes from 30% to over 70% battery capacity.

Photo: a camera for panoramas more than for selfies

My tests on the three cameras in the back were quite conclusive. The 48-megapixel main camera is equipped with a wide-angle f/1.6 lens with OIS (optical image stabilization). It comes with an 8 megapixel f/2.4 telephoto lens (3x optical zoom also with OIS) and a 16 megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide angle camera. The telephone allows you to take beautiful panoramas.

The automatic suggestion to take panoramas in ultra-wide mode allows for better framed photos, as you can see below. The macro mode is also very nice.

The pop-up front camera (16 megapixel, f/2.0) avoids a notch on the screen, resulting in a screen-to-device ratio of 88.5%. To use the front camera, however, you have to wait until the camera comes out. For selfies lovers, this can be a weak spot.

Finally, a small detail that deserves our attention. On the right side is a button that you can slide to mute, vibrate or ring your phone. It’s very convenient, and all smartphones should have it.

Conclusion

The longer than usual testing period of the OnePlus 7T Pro was an enjoyable experience. The Playback mode (monochrome screen) is really nice and the side button for the ringer is very handy.
