If you are trying to choose the most “all-round” one of this year’s flagship phones, OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 will be on the list. Among the flagship phones, it has the strongest “Loaded” hardware and the “fastest” 120Hz screen.
 
Of all the high-quality phones,
  1. It has the most “clear” QHD+ display
  2. Accurate colour reproduction
  3. The most “cool” high-frame screen adaptation of MEMC 
The camera performance of OnePlus 8 Pro and Oneplus 8 is also very good. OnePlus 8 Pro is the model with the most cameras in OnePlus. Among the four cameras on it, our favourite is its ultra-wide-angle camera with IMX586 sensor.
Now more details on OnePlus 8 / Oneplus 8 Pro
Special colour scheme and a rare good feel.
 
One plus 8 is more attractive to me is the design and feel the performance. Among the new phones released recently, similar body colour options of the OnePlus 8 series are few.
 
Picture from OnePlus official
Geeks, Techies who follow OnePlus should have seen that the sky blue version in the official promotional poster looks light green. After checking the real machine, we found one can see many different colour effects as the angle of light changes but more often it looks light blue. Whether it looks good or not is a matter of opinion, but the feel is special. Relative to the colour that we see in pictures, holding the phone in hand gives feeling of more royal colours. Unless you get it yourself, it is difficult for you to perceive its actual looks. Having said that, you can still get a rough idea by the three aspects of aesthetics process, weight and measurements. Besides adopting a new generation of AG technology, another thing that OnePlus started to do this year is to reduce weight for phones. While retaining the metal middle frame, OnePlus 8 still controls the weight at a good level of 180 grams.
 
This even 10 grams lighter than the OnePlus 7T released in the second half of last year. The pressure on the little finger and wrist is much less. The body measurements are right. According to the official data, the body length of OnePlus 8 is 160.94 mm, the width is 74.44 mm, and the thickness is 8.13 mm. Due to the narrower left and right widths, the cover is treated with a certain arc.
It’s not difficult to hold with one hand even for person with small palms. At present, if you are more concerned about the performance of grip, OnePlus 8 may be one of the best choices.
 
90Hz – 120 Hz  top screen quality
 
OnePlus 8 also uses a customized AMOLED flexible screen from Samsung with a size of 6.55 inches, a resolution of 2400 X 1080, and 402 ppi. It has passed DisplayMate A + and HDR10 + certification. Each screen will be colour-calibrated before leaving the factory. The two “Hertz”, its screen touch sampling rate is 180Hz, and the refresh rate is still the familiar 90Hz. As far as refresh rate is concerned, OnePlus 8 is top-notch and does not even lose to some 144Hz refresh rate phones.
 
The screen curvature is smaller than the previous generation products. The benefits are in two aspects. One is to increase the effective display area of the screen. On the one hand, it can reduce the natural edge colour deviation of the curved screen. As for the problem of false touch, although it is still unavoidable, it has made great progress recently with the system version update. As far as the display quality is concerned, the OnePlus 8 screen shows a good performance in colour accuracy and transparency. There is nothing to say about the screen fingerprint. Both the unlocking speed and the recognition accuracy are the same as OnePlus 8 Pro, which is at the top level in the industry. OnePlus moved fingerprint module slightly up this time, thus improving one-hand.
 
Rear Camera, long-lost portrait arrangement.
 
After entering 2020, many manufacturers have changed the rear camera to a rectangular design. OnePlus 8 series is one of the few new phones that use a vertical arrangement and place the camera in the centre of the back.
A good screen look and feel makes us more comfortable while using phones. In the daily use of phones, “photography” is one of the more frequently used functions. Today’s smartphones vary in the number of lenses, but the functions are the same. That is to use the “super wide-angle”, “wide-angle” and “telephoto” and other lenses of different focal lengths, to create a full scene shooting. This time, the OnePlus 8 Pro uses “dual 48 million ultra-clear four shots”. The four lenses are a high-quality main shot, an ultra-wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a filter lens. Four lenses constitute a “3+1 imaging system” to meet the shooting needs of the whole scene. In actual use, the operation interface of OnePlus 8 Pro is also simple enough, without the need to adjust complex parameters. The main camera is the one with the some highest pixel in our daily life. OnePlus 8 Pro’s main camera uses Sony IMX689 sensor, with a 1/1.4-inch outsole and f/1.78 aperture.
1) It supports 10-bit colour depth RAW output, which provides richer photos for professionals
2) New “full-pixel Omni-directional focusing technology”, enables the sensor to focus quickly using pixel synthesis
3) It further improves focusing speed even in the dark light, can achieve focus in the shortest time.
4) Shutter button clicks quick photos with extreme clarity.
 
Battery
As for the battery life that everyone is more concerned about, the battery capacity of OnePlus 8 is 4300mAh, which supports Warp 30T wired flash charging, but does not support wireless charging. From our actual test data, using the original charger can charge from 0 to 10% in 5 minutes, 22% in 10 minutes, 46% in 20 minutes, and 66% in 30 minutes. 100% takes about 61 minutes, and the overall charging speed is not bad. Also, when the 90Hz mode is turned on, under normal use (non-long-term gaming), OnePlus 8 can roughly hold the charge for one day.

It is no problem to run the popular mobile games on the market such as Honor of Kings, PUBG.

Dual speakers, WiFi 6 and final verdict 

 
Looking back at OnePlus 8, the biggest advantage of this product is that it has a rare feel and excellent screen quality of the current 5G phone products, and these two improvements to the actual user experience are real. At the same time, the combination of Snapdragon 865 + UFS3.0 is also sufficient to meet the needs of users including game scenarios. Also to the ones we mentioned above, it hasn’t dropped other points that people are more concerned about, such as dual speakers, multi-function NFC, and WiFi 6.
 
Its slightly regrettable, to reduce the weight and thickness of the frame, it cancelled wireless charging. The powerful performance, the smoothness brought by the ultra-high 120Hz refresh rate, and the high frame rate 2.0 experience. These are key points which sets oneplus 8 series apart.
This also helps it run through the entire scene of games, audio and video, systems, etc with amazing smoothness.
