Oneplus 8 detailed review-Finally a real flagship by Oneplus! | Techronicle

Hey, what's up, guys? we're back. And yeah, you got me. I've been using the Oneplus Pro daily for about two weeks now and I gotta say they did it, They finally did it. They just went ahead and made a flagship like a bonafide complete feeling Flagship phone.Finally. There are still a few snags and I will nitpick about those because that's what you do in a phone that starts now at $900 bucks but still nevertheless really happy to see them finally commit to something like this and it's been a long time coming.

So today as you may have seen one plus launch their newest highest end phone. It's the Oneplus 8 Pro. They've taken yet another step up in the ladder of their phones getting slightly more expensive every year but alongside it.

They also dropped the Oneplus 8, which is sort of more like a premium mid-range phone that starts at $699. That will be reviewed in a separate post and that will come out later.Once I fully daily drive this phone, I will switch to it. Give it that treatment that's going to be a tough one to review but definitely subscribe to our site to see that review first when it comes out.
But until then we're talking about this guy, the 8 pro, the flagship.So the bleeding edge high-end specs shouldn't be a surprise when we see a new Oneplus phone. I mean besides the fact that they slowly tease out all the specs few weeks leading up to the phone's launch its kind of what they're known for.

What feels like the highest and best available specs for the highest end performance on one phone and we still have a very familiar one plus design and experience here to they still have their logo on the back and
Still things like the alert slider, that I'm surprised more phones haven't copied yet,
Still oxygen OS one of my favorite clean Android skins with all of its features, but wait stop pause. What if the nitpicks always been with Oneplus phones....?
One is that their cameras are always just not quite measuring up to the flagships and to that they always tend to leave out these sort of Fringe features that don't feel essential but still feel like you should have them if you're going to claim that you're a flagship
Things like wireless charging and the ip68 certification.
Well, guess what? They finally went added this year an improved the Camera, Wireless Charging and an official ip68 water and dust resistance rating finally, but you know what? Let me start from the top with the new design for the Oneplus 8 Pro you can see it here. I really like a lot of it.

The new matte finish and this blue color are pretty sick. I don't have a lot of matte blue phones, but this one is nice and clean. So it's easily my favorite blue phone and the Finish is nice. It doesn't really show too many Fingerprints.
You can see the wireless charging coil in the back, Plus it also got a few Easter eggs in the design which are pretty dope. But anyway, yeah, the shape of the phone is boxy, which I've always really liked. Plus there's this new little design accent Ridge into the top of the phone. So generally I think it's one of the absolute better-looking phones out there, but I still get to nitpick because like I said $900 phone that's what's going to happen
The camera bump while it's not as ugly as some of the others out there. It still is pretty big like it's annoyingly rocks on a table big for sticking out of the phone that much so I got to point that out. But again you put a case on and get rid of that.

then you get around to the front and you're looking at the new display which is an upgrade, too.
pretty much all the ways that count but also technically a slight downgrade too cause this is a six point seven eight inch 1440p, 120 hertz AMOLED display and its really really good. It's their most color accurate display ever, you know, the best 8 plus they've ever given. Look, I believe that the color are great, The calibration is great. But what I notice more often is
Number one. It's definitely a lot brighter than last year, which is sweet.
And then of course the flagship feature for 2020 which all these new flagships have, which is the smooth hundred twenty Hertz refresh rate plus 240 hertz touch sampling rate and it is awesome.
I've been looking forward to this couple specifications on this one.
and take a note, Yes. It does let you run both High refresh rate and high resolution at the same time.

But yes, it is technically a variable refresh. So even when you have it set to 120 hertz, it will step down to 60 hertz occasionally when you're just sitting around not doing anything or if you're on a home screen or if you're in some app that won't use that like ways or Google Maps or SnapChat or a game or something then?

and Yes, there is still an optical fingerprint reader underneath that screen. It doesn't appear to be any bigger or faster, but still Fairly reliable for me and yes, the edges are still curved over both sides and this is my least favorite feature of this display. I still get accidental touches. Like really I realize the idea is it looks cool and it's edgeless and futuristic, but I think it's time to slow that down and I think Samsung's perfected that balance this year between curving the glass a little bit and still having a flat working surface with no accidental touches so just saying.
and also by now from all these Beauty angles of the screen certainly have noticed that hole-punch camera in the top left corner for the selfie shooter for the Oneplus 8 Pro. I guess the pop-up camera was better than the hole punch and this is a downgrade like I get that the pop-up camera was a moving part and moving part in a phone is always a part to pay attention to, but we haven't had any durability problems with them for the past two years. we've seen them in phones and of course having that part hidden inside allows you a fully uninterrupted screen with no hole punch and when it closes down into the phone and you're not using it, it's blocked by the rest of the phone. So that's an added security benefit. So seems like the pop up camera was the way to go. So why do they remove the pop-up camera and change back to a hole punch? I don't know maybe to look a little bit more like the other flagships or maybe to save a little bit of money, or just maybe to guarantee the ip68 water certification. Maybe just a little bit of all these things.

also side note. I would like to see some of these phones offering 120 Hertz screens which also offer a 90 hurts mode in it, So we already know we can step down to 1080p to save battery life. I think it would be nice to be able to step down to 90 hurts to save battery life to just a bit. Some of the gaming phones have done this already, but I want to see more flagships doing into so there's a free idea.

So all of the Oneplus 8 its internal specs are high-end top-end, Following are the key specs of the Oneplus 8 pro

  • 6.78 Inch 120 hertz super AMOLED display.
  • 1440x3168 pixels resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Processor
  • 16 MP front Camera
  • 48MP + 8MP + 48MP + 5MP Rear Cameras
  • 6GB and 8GB RAM
  • 128 GB Storage 
  • 4510 mAh Battery
  • Android 10 OS

It's not the biggest battery in the world. But for me, it did just fine. So guys thats it, that was a short and sweet review of the latest Flagship device by Oneplus namely the One Plus 8 Pro.
