I know everyone is discussing about oneplus 7 pro. It obviously has a great display and super fast performance. But what I am worried about is the pop up Camera. I know it says it can be used 300000 times, but it is under ideal conditions. If dust goes inside the mechanism, don't know what will happen. Good thing they put in a safety feature to retract the camera when it is about to fall. But the deal breaker for me are the Cameras. They are not nearly as good as the pixel Cameras. Even pixel 3a performs better than oneplus 7 pro(my opinion). So i will wait for the pixel 4. I might not get all the bells and whistles of the op7 pro. But atleast I will have the best point and shoot camera experience.

If you're going to do the hole punch design you should keep it to one camera like the s10e.

Superior ultrasound fingerprint sensor?that's funny. I'm holding an s10 right now and this superior senser is disabled because it is all but useless. Maybe 1 in 5 tries will unlock (yes without a screen protector). And no haptic feedback when it's successful.so you just wait several seconds hoping it worked. The best thing about the Pixel is how lighting fast you can unlock with.fingerprint sensor.

I have one too and I get 95-98% accuracy. Just follow the setup tips online and in a few days of use and it becomes second nature.

Everyone is talking about this phone just by seeing pictures or online reviews. Last night bought one in a pop-up event in India. Ya, there are some flaws here and there but the total experience is mind-blowing. And trust me full-screen design is mind-blowing with 90Hz of screen refresh, ya it makes a difference. Use it once and you will fall in love with the total experience. Especially how snappy it is and manages it for years. I know it because I replaced it with OP5 after using it for approx 2 years. Definitely, it is not outdated or ugly. Just a little bit heavy like Xs Max.

I hope they stick to a single camera lens. Why not make a "ultra"good ultra wide lens + the super res zoom and you have a 3in1camera. Save space for 3.5jack, larger battery or other stuff. Maybe it all comes to price for the lenses.

I think it has to do with the depth of these cameras. Its the reason you don't see a full on camera on the back. Imagine walking around with a phone that has a camera bump the size of a Nikon. You can buils a skyscraper that's 90 floors, or you can have three 30-floor buildings. By having 3 cameras, you spread out the depth so the phone can be thinner.

That's not how it will look it will have a chin Only apple knows how to not put a chin on their phones and judging by the pixel 3 design I don't think they can do that

The Notches look like s**t, just like the Punch Holes...That's why I got the Mi Mix 3, full screen, beautiful design

I've always liked OnePlus and their concept. 7 Pro is for sure the best phone they have made yet and is lightning fast. However after watching drop test video: back glass cracks easily, you can actually make the camera hit before it retracts, curved screen is glare attractive and cannot take impact of any kind.....CASE UP this phone and enjoy.
