OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro: which one would you buy?
by Preslav Kateliev / May 14, 2019, 3:35 PM
This year, however, we got two devices at once — that’s a first for the company and definitely a controversial theme in the fanbase. There’s the value choice OnePlus 7, which is basically an evolution of last year’s OnePlus 6T, and then there’s the OnePlus 7 Pro with its mechanical pop-out camera and 90 Hz display.
While both are still more affordable than the mainstream competition, the 7 Pro is definitely pushing its luck with a starting price of $700, while the OnePlus 7 still sits at an acceptable ~$560. But... to make it worse for US users — the cheaper option is not coming to the States. So, it's Pro only.
Regardless, no matter where you live, let's see if the Pro has legs to stand on. Which one tickles your fancy more? Which one would you buy right now if you were after a OnePlus phone?
Which one would you buy?
OnePlus 7 Pro
- Display 6.4" 1080 x 2340 pixels
- Camera 48 MP / 16 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, Octa-core, 2840 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 3700 mAh

I hardly dig 7Pro price point in comparison to regular 7 which is £499 here in UK. Unless you really need wide angle camera and tear drop is a deal breaker to you then you should break the bank. A price conscious person like me first asks: does it really make a huge difference? My answer is hell no. For a regular price you get all the essentials like super speed, decent screen, decent camera experience superb software and 128GB of storage! @ £499 it is a steal in my opinion.

My biggest problem with the Pro is the BAD huge curve. Samsung phones are really almost flat and curve sharply at the edges. This one had a gradual and a terrible curve. Reminds me of the S6 Edge days. Too much reflection all the time.

The pricing is an excellent value but I still won't get one. No headphone jack and likely no dual-sim functionality on the T-Mobile version is a deal breaker for me, especially as I already have the Vivo NexS which is basically an older version of the pro model. However I may consider the 7T version when it's released because it'll definitely be 5G like the UK/EU version of the 7 Pro. Does anyone know if the unlocked T-Mobile 6T is dual-sim? https://www.gsmarena.com/onepl

I will buy both if they have a different software than Android

I'd get the OP7 in a heartbeat. Too bad they decided not to release it in the US. They should have discontinued the 6t and released the 7 here. I'm sure they figure that would kill the sales of the pro model, but that seems to work for samsung.

Oneplus reach high now, no more good deals on trade-in old phones. like the first launch in U,S of op6T on tmobile. I got the best deal of trading iphone 6 for 50% of for op6T (after 24 months payment ) Now I see new trade-in value is lower for older phones, lower than last year for iphone 7 will give only $1XX-$40? no good deal, no oneplus for me. I better wait for samsung note 10 instead.

While the Oneplus 7 Pro has a nice high resolution 90hz screen, it eats battery life. I'd rather take the Oneplus 7 and get 8 hours of sot than the 7 Pro with 4 hours of sot. Still get the main camera, improved fingerprint reader, better haptic motor and stereo sound.
