Main Pro’s and Cons
Battery life and 90 Hz Amoled Display
No Wireless Charging & no Ip Rating
One plus is bringing you some amazing phones. It has always set its standards and its for sure a flagship killer. It has always set its standards high and have made its customers happy. I still know few friends who still use their One plus 3 and One plus 5 device who are really happy with its performance. One thing that Oneplus has always provided in its phones are Speed. This has always made its customers loyal to its products. Over the time the price of One plus has took a leap and some customers would love to buy it but it is no more a pocket friendly phone.
Telling you the initial review of one plus 8. Both 8 and 8 pro version are fuctionally similar. You’re also getting a very similar-looking device from the front look as the Pro, with a display fingerprint sensor and hole-punch selfie camera . Both device OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro are two very large phones. You get a physical three-way switch to set it to silent and vibrate, and we will miss the 3.5mm headphone jack.
I will start with the display and the display is simply spectacular. Smooth fluid and providing some experience of amazing colors. Display has a maximum refresh rate of 90Hz and a maximum brightness of 1100 units.Simply watching at the display will make you fall in love with it.3D Corning® Gorilla® Glass and its 6.5 inch wide in screen. It does easily fit in your palm and no difficlty in holding.If your hand turns out to be small sometimes your thumb finger might not reach the top portion of the screen.
To talk about the design it’s sleek and trendy. Its Glacial Green,Interstellar Glow,Onyx Black colors are indeed attractive. I did go for the Interstellar Glow.
Let’s talk about performance. The Qualcomm snapdragon 865 chipset does indeed give a very good performance. You can choose a model with 8GB/12GB based on your requirement and both do give nice smooth performance. No lags while playing games like Asphalt 9, Pubg etc, downloading or uploading content, web browsing and social media. Everything seems to be smooth and fluid.
Let’s move to the most important segment which is the Camera. The Rear part of the phone holds three camera’s which uncle 48 Megapixel with f1.75 aperture, a macro lens with 2 Mega Pixel f2.4 aperture and an ultra wide angle lens with16 Mega pixels with f 2.2 aperture. It’s a beautiful combination and it does indeed give an awesome performance. The colors are bright and well lit up. Portrait modes does give you that smooth bokeh effect and that wide angle does help in some amazing lansacape shots. Video is smooth and stable you can shoot both in 4k and 1080 pixels both in 30/60 fms. Slow motion caption in 1080 pixels at 240 fps.Time-Lapse can be recoded at 1080Pixels at 30fps, and 4k at 30fps. The video taking is smooth and auto stable fucntion is there. Less noise and gives you a smooth experience. I can also see when compared to an iphone you can the white balance is more perfect in a Iphone than one plus 8. Lets talk about the front Camera. Night mode is simply brilliant and it does take some veyr good snaps in low ligting conditions. The front camera holds 16 Megapixels with an aperture of f2.45 and it can shoot at 1080 pixels at 30 fps. I can say it does take best Selfie even better than a iphone 11 Pro. People will be happy to take a Selfie in one Plus and post it out. I will say the rear camera could be lot more better.
Lets talk about the battery and it’s charging ability. It comes with a 4300 mAh non removable battery. I am neither unhappy or happy with the battery backup. With a single charge it can sustain unto more that 15 hours of playback. If you use on cellular 4G and play games still you can find your phone to half a day. Oneplus has provided a charger with a type C cable which has 30T Fast Charging (5V/6A). It can charge your phone from 0 to 50 in a matter of 30 minutes. Its lot more better than the regular type C chargers. To summarize providing a 120 hz display and still in 4000 Mah does not give sufficient juice. One more thing to add on will be It also doesn’t support OnePlus’ fancy new 30-watt wireless charging tech.
To summarize I will way it has all of the things that you do expect from a OnePlus device. It’s got a great screen, great performance, great battery life, its camera could stand to be a little better, and they are not IP-rated and none of them do wireless charging. One plus just did follow its legacy and I am sure it would disappoint it loyal customers.
Until Next review see you soon.
