The US-bound OnePlus 7T benchmarked beating the 7 Pro

The US-bound OnePlus 7T benchmarked beating the 7 Pro
It doesn't take a genius to recognize that OnePlus 7T will perform well in every benchmark thrown at it even without plumping up the numbers. After all, it will be powered by Qualcomm's most powerful mobile chipset at the moment - the Snapdragon 855+ - coupled with 8GB RAM.

American carriers won't be getting the 7T Pro, as the differences between it, and the 7 Pro aren't that significant, but they will get its souped-up McLaren Edition, as well as the funky design of the smaller sibling, the 7T.

That same US-bound OnePlus 7Т has now been benchmarked with stellar scores on Geekbench v5 under the codename HD1903, so Americans can sleep tight knowing that even the lowly 7T with 8GB RAM will beat the 7 Pro with 12 GB RAM when it comes to horsepower. 

The phones will be announced as soon as next week, on September 26th, and we'll be finding out more about other important specs such as display size and especially the resolution of the 7T. 

The 1080p pixel count has proved time and again to be the sweet spot between performance, battery draw, and resolution requirements, so we hope that's what OnePlus has chosen but we'll also be fine with a giant battery inside. Why not both? As a reminder, the 7T was teased yesterday by OnePlus, carrying one intriguing circular camera setup at the back.

Kind of a no brainer IMO, considering the OnePlus 7T has the more powerful processor. Still, the 7Pro is a phenomenal handset, and the 7T looks to be great as well. OnePlus is really on its game as of late. Loving my OnePlus 7Pro.

I love the phone but I had to return it as taking photos is a priority of mines and the quality wasn't the best in my opinion, but I love the Pixel 3 camera.

I understand. The Pixel phones are the best when it comes to cameras. Nothing wrong with returning the OnePlus if it doesn't work for you. At least you aren't claiming fake ownership.

Glad I'm not a camera person. As long as it takes decent pics I'm good to go.

True that. Performance and Battery Life are tops for me with a smartphone, and the OnePlus 7 Pro has both in spades.

Oh I completely understand. OnePlus isn't something that I picture when I think of cameras on a phone, but it does take good enough photos and that's ok. Nothing wrong with that because it's been proven that even phones that are built for photography with gimmicks can still fail at taking great photos.

Glad to see that you and I agree. Cameras on smartphones are great, but they just don’t trump performance and battery life. Your smartphone can be said to have the best camera on the market, but if buggy software mar the experience and ruin the performance, what good is it, really? That’s where OnePlus excels, with great performing smartphones with great battery life.

It's ironic that camera performance is praised when the software is beta software that is poorly baked meaning the view isn't as pure as some think.

It’s amazing that some people mention things that are really “pot, meet kettle” moments, as a certain brand of smartphones is known for being in beta with half baked software, proving that the picture isn’t always Pixel-Perfect.

Hey, whatever works for you. I find that OnePlus 7 Pro takes great photos, and it’s photography prowess has been improving with each update. Nothing wrong if taking photos are your priority, but mine is performance, and the 7 Pro crushes any Pixel in that regard. Still. It’s nice to hear from actual owners of the smartphones, as opposed to those that front for a little bit of perceived internet clout.

Well it has some great specs, so it will obviously have better speeds than the Pixel 3A. But the regular Pixels is debatable, so it doesn't crush anything. At least you don't have to put on a fake act like just to make yourself feel valid.

Well, after various updates, it is amongst the best available. GSMArena in it's Note 10+ review noted that OP7 Pro captures better night and low light shots(after all updates). Similarly a youtuber posted some low light shots on twitter. 7 Pro was number 1, p30 pro was second, pixel 3 was third and note 10 was 4th. Now a days OP7 Pro is amongst the top 3/4 camera phones. Yes, overall pixel 3 might be the best(strictly in picture quality) but 7 Pro also has zoom and wide lenses which pixel simply lacks. So 7 Pro is indeed a capable camera device now

Totally agree. The updates have made the camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro very capable indeed, with features the Pixel 3 does not have. It’s no wonder Google is now going the route that some have called a gimmick when others do it, which is adding more cameras to its Pixels with the Pixel 4 series.

I'm not against the 7 Pro's camera at all. As long as it takes good photos, I'm ok. I'm not like some who hop from bandwagon to bandwagon looking like a fake in the process. My Pixel 3A XL still performs well enough for me so I'm not in the market for the 7 Pro.

Don’t get me wrong, Pixels aren’t bad, if the camera is your main reason for buying a smartphone. Other than that, the 7Pro (or really, OnePlus smartphones in general) is definitely the way to go due to better battery life, performance and build quality. It’s amazing how some people jump from one smartphone camp to the next, only to leave said smartphone camp right after that, looking like a fake all the through the process. Glad I’m rocking the OnePlus 7Pro and actually stick with the camps I favor. It’s the best smartphone released at the moment, IMO.

@mccalmr101 The Pixels have great cameras, no doubt about it, but that’s about it. Their hardware is basic run of the mill, and performance wise, the OnePlus 7Pro crushes it, despite what some misleadingly say. At least you aren’t a fake one that’s just making comments just to be commenting.

@mccalmr101 It's amazing how bad information continues to flow from the ignorant ones who don't know what they're talking about. The Pixel phones, outside of a need to bump up the RAM, have the same specs as the regular flagships plus running stock Android means that they are going to be extremely fast. At least you're not trying to spew bs like some run of the mill trolls.

@mccalmr101 It’s amazing how some people post erroneous comments from day to day, completely ignorant of the facts. Pixels really are run of the mill, as far as flagship smartphones go, with the exception of the camera. They are as “vanilla” as Stock Android is, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it just means that nothing really new or innovative is brought to the table that hasn’t already been on other feature rich smartphones. Stock Android doesn’t guarantee your smartphones will perform the fastest, as has already been proven. At least you’re not the run of the mill troll spewing BS like some people are.

I don't know how to process this respect of others opinions. This is the internet ... you must destroy all contradictory opinions!!! :) Actually, it's a nice change of pace. I'm on the OP 7 pro camera is more than good enough for my needs camp, but I got the Pixel 3a XL for my wife. Maybe I should do my own camera comparison when I have some spare time.

So why is US not getting the 7T pro? Because the upgrade is small? So expecting US customers to happily buy the older one, when they know other markets get the upgraded one makes more sense? And yes, even if it is just a bit better chip, the new sensor, new color, tiny bit bigger battery... And yes, they (we) can go for non-pro upgraded one... if they don't mind smaller, lower res screen, or the notch, or 2x instead of 3x zoom... I would understand if they wouldn't make a new device... but you have it, but won't send here? Cause what, 7 pro stocks still too high, or some registration fee for new model that's too high or what?

I'm quite baffled myself. I mean the 6T is still one of the best phone ever imo, but I don't quite understand why they aren't releasing the Pro here. Seems like they're taking a page out of Motorola and Nokia's books.

22. meanestgenius

Posts: 22327; Member since: May 28, 2014

It’s probably not coming to the U.S. due to it being such an incremental update to the 7Pro. On the carriers part, it doesn’t make financial sense to carry it with them still jack from the 7Pro, which is so much better than the 6T (which is still a great smartphone that carriers have, btw). Just makes good business sense, like HMD bringing all of their latest smartphones to the U.S., despite what some people erroneously say.

I own an iPhone 8 Plus and a Huawei P30 Pro and the camera along with battery life is where the P30 Pro shines. Dual sim is also great as it allows two apps to be installed meaning one for each SIM card number. Like having two phones in one. Like a MacBook computer it also can have two accounts running. Enter one password and it logs you into one account with apps in it and enter another password and it logs you into another account so two different people can actually use phone and not have to worry about privacy issues .

Yeah, no. The Huawei P30 looks like nothing more than a Chinese knockoff from a shady OEM.

29. meanestgenius

The P30 Pro is a great smartphone. Huawei and OnePlus have been putting out the best smartphones lately IMO, with the P30 Pro even surpassing the Pixel line in camera prowess, while the OnePlus 7Pro crushes the Pixel line and many others performance wise. Nothing knockoff about it at all, despite what some uninformed people say. Too bad they are caught up in all of this shady politics BS propaganda.
