Samsung Note 10 will destroy this phone with its vibranium glass back and a killer price tag that will put oneplus 7 to shame!

I'm just glad to see another manufacturer introducing a high end device into U.S. markets. It gives us consumers more options and helps reduce the chances of monopolizing by Samsung and Apple. At the OnePlus 7 pro price point, it will be the best overall bang for your buck on the market.

If it had a microSD slot, I'd get this.

People dont just get memory cards due to storage limitations.

"flagship caliber devices at the fraction of the cost." Not precisely but value-wise is better than mist flagships.

What part of that isnt accurate? It has flagship specs, and costs less than any other flagship.

Sure...I guess 4/5 is still a fraction...just not to the degree such a statement implies.

Poor camera performance, poor battery life, no IP68, no headphone jack, no IR blaster, no wireless charging, no external storage, no 5G, gorilla glass 5, huge size and weight difficult to use with one hand and ultimately you have to queue up for months and import from foreign country with additional middle charges.

About that IP certification...https://youtu.be/z8AdxtkkQDo I was in New York yesterday and tested the camera both on the demo floor and at T-Mobile. Trust me, it's more than fine. I agree about headphone jack and wireless charging although I never really used it on my wireless charging capable phone anyway. You just came here to whine basically. Whine on dude. Whine on.

The test devices offered free by One plus to reviewers who don't know how the IP rating test works is trustable sample to valid the IP rating of OPO7. Mr Mobile review has given the OPO7pro a pretty meh review for the camera. Id take that over a fan review.

What the hell do you need an IR blaster for. Those are so 2009? Wireless charging is not needed because of how this charges form 0-50% in 20 mins. Omg no 5G. If you saw the announcement they announced a 5G version of this moron. If you need more then 256gb on a freaking phone you have problems.

Also the camera is pretty much on par with the s10+'s.

Poor camera - neg, Poor battery? My 6T still outlasts my S10+, No headphone Jack - who cares now!, No IR Blaster - fks sake are you the only one on the planet still using a phone to change TV channels? Gorilla Glass 5 is heaps and still valid. For the cheaper price you get some compromises - no IP rating for example.. Agreed OP need more stores around the world to be taken seriously - even in Australia we have to import from Oppomart, etc.

You can pick up the mate 20 pro for around the same price now. Better battery life, better camera, ir blaster, wireless charging and full ip68 protection. Just saying.

Why does this hands on review sound more like an ad? There has been few vids pointing out the fact that camera still needs work, 90hz only mode isn't that great on battery life. Also has ton of features missing like wireless charging, aod, etc

One plus camera's are really bad when taking pictures of kids or moving objects. I tried 5 and 6T and am done. Also, their SAR values are too high, I literally felt pain near my ear whenever am taking calls and finally had to always use BT until I let them go. Thought they fixed it with 6T but they didn't.

I have no issues with the 6T except for Panoramas.. For this I downloaded the GCAM app and side loaded. Google does panos way better than OP

people whining for sd card slot, is 128gb not enough..wth ..

13. ShadowSnypa786

Once again its not due to storage limitations. Imagine you drop your phone the screen breaks and it cost too much to get it fixed and you better off buying a new phone? If you have a SD card inside then you good to go or you could back it up to google drive but that takes longer and its limited to 15GB. And say you upgraded to a new device if you have a sd card all you have to do is take it out of the old device and insert it into new and you have all your movies, songs, pictures ASAP. No uploading or downloading back onto device. Fact is if Note 9 can have a SD card slot, an audio jack, have space for a STYLUS, be waterproof and also have a 4000mah battery then there isn't no reason to remove it on other devices apart from them to save money and charge customers more.

The convenience of SD cards has absolutely nothing to do with storage capacity, champ.

"The convenience of SD cards has absolutely nothing to do with storage capacity, champ." Im sure I said "Once again its not due to storage limitations" So yeah I have already said that but nice to repeat yourself champ ;) Either you pay an extra 80-100 dollars for doubling the memory and go from a 128gb device to a 256 or you can pay 40 dollars and get a 256gb sd card to add to your phones storage. So its convenient, saves time and ends up being cheaper in the long run. Apps saved on the phones memory due to faster speeds. Photo's, music and videos especially 4k 60fps recorded ones go straight onto SD card.
