OnePlus trolls Apple and Samsung with new ad



If you ask a OnePlus 7 Pro owner what drove them to buy the phone, most likely they will tell you that it was the screen. The 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display is the first on a OnePlus phone to feature a 1440p resolution. At 1440 x 3120, the 19.5:9 aspect ratio provides a nice canvas for viewing streaming video, and the 90Hz refresh rate means that scrolling and playing mobile games is a buttery smooth experience.

As OnePlus points out in a new ad, not only is there no notch on the OnePlus 7 Pro screen, there also isn't a punch-hole like the one you will find on the Samsung Galaxy S10e and Samsung Galaxy S10. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has a double punch-hole, which is shown in OnePlus' 15-second commercial. The clip shows how a notch or a punch-hole can be a nusiance and a major distraction when you're looking at photos. Actually, this applies to any content that is viewable on a display with a notch or a punch-hole.

What makes this phone so different? Instead of a notch or punch-hole, the OnePlus 7 Pro has a pop-up 16MP selfie camera. And if you have butterfingers, the camera will automatically retract when it senses that the phone is falling. Sure, other phones (like the Oppo Reno for example) feature a selfie snapper that pops up from the top of the phone, but they are not available in the U.S. The screen on the OnePlus 7 Pro takes up nearly 90% of the phone's body and provides a full-screen view that practically sells the phone itself.

The only U.S. carrier to offer the phone is T-Mobile, where the variant with 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage is priced at $699 or $29.17 a month over 24 months. The OnePlus website also offers the model with 6GB of memory and 128GB of storage for $669 and the unit with 12GB of memory and 256GB of storage for $749. The phone is reportedly certified to work on Verizon and apparently will connect to AT&T's 4G LTE network as well.

when a buggy phone wants to compare with high-ends.

The Galaxy lines have historically been one of the buggiest Android phones. The Note 7 was the first really good Galaxy phone where you don't experience daily lags, bugs, etc. The S8 and beyond were also the same but still not perfect and are more buggy than Apple's but I stopped complaining about them on a daily basis like my multiple Galaxies I had before the Note 7. I have experience bugs with iphones too, but it's definitely the most bug free smart phone series ever. The P30 Pro I recently bought for the killer camera is also surprisingly bug free except for the optical finger print sometimes fails to register my finger print in one attempt. Strangely, the Note 7 had the most reliable finger print scanner I have ever used but too bad I had to turn in the phone.

Oneplus7 pro's curved display is yuck. More curvy than any galaxy s. Side glares are annoying when you watch or browse under daylight. Looks good but very inconvenient. #tiltgate

I can appreciate the fact that OnePlus wants to sit at the big boy table and compete at the highest level.
