After her long experience in producing mid-range phones, get to know the flagship OnePlus 8 Pro phone!
get to know the flagship OnePlus 8 Pro phone!

an introduction

In past years, we used to call the (leading phone killer) on the devices of the middle-class OnePlus company, which had specifications that can be compared with other flagship phones, and at the price of middle-class phones.

Despite the great use of the experience provided by these devices, they have never lived up to the experience of using a leading phone.

OnePlus this year was satisfied with the killers of the leading phones, and announced its first true flagship phone, the OnePlus 8 Pro, which not only has all the specifications that enables it to compete side by side against the leading phones for 2020, but also at a high price.

Excellent for that:

The most powerful, mature, and fully integrated OnePlus phones yet, the new improved, high refresh rate screen with the SD865 processor delivers a smooth and fast user experience.

The new camera system provides images that compete side by side with those of the most powerful flagships.

The large battery and fast charger guarantee unlimited fun.

the design
OnePlus phones have always enjoyed durability, build quality and even the luxury of designing the most expensive flagships, and this has not changed this year with the OnePlus 8 Pro.

Gorilla Glass still covers both the back and front, and the phone is surrounded by a durable aluminum metal frame.

On the opposite bank, the size factor has increased compared to previous OnePlus devices. The 6.78-inch screen size made it the largest screen OnePlus uses on its devices so far, and even larger than the screens of most competing phones.

The company dispensed with the design of the pop-up front camera that we saw on the phone last year OnePlus 7 Pro and put it in a small hole in the screen to provide some internal space occupied by the moving parts of the camera and get rid of the additional weight imposed by its presence.

The presence of the camera will not pose any problem while using the phone, as it is small with a diameter of 3.8 mm and you will get used to ignoring it quickly.

The company returned its longitudinal positioning of its rear cameras in the middle after favoring the design of the circular frame last year.

The frame of the cameras is so prominent from the body of the phone that it prevents you from completely using the phone without a protective cover while placing it on a flat surface such as the table, for example.

So it is better to buy the protective cover or use the transparent silicone cover that comes with the phone, although the glass back is less slippery than before, but the phone can be a little slippery sometimes.

That is why the idea of ​​using a cover will be a good idea although its texture cannot be compared to that of a luxury glass, but at least it remains able to see the distinctive and wonderful colors of the phone, as the phone comes in the colors of azure blue, ice green and sage black.

the screen

the screen
OnePlus was very proud when talking about the screen of its new OnePlus 8 Pro phone and said it is “the best screen you can see for this year”.

Although we barely entered the second quarter of the year and many companies still hide new and competitive technologies in their possession, we can say that the effort made by the company to improve its new screen will make it one of the most beautiful screens that we will see this year.

The OnePlus 8 Pro screen has a high refresh rate of 120 Hz similar to the screen of the Galaxy S20, and is an upgrade to the OnePlus 7 Pro screen refresh rate that we saw last year, which provided one of the most amazing screen use experiences.

The move to increase the refresh rate makes sense for 2020, as more and more users expect to have this feature in their new flagship device.

The refresh rate is not the only aspect affected by the new improvements, the screen measures 6.78 inches and the density of pixels 513 pixels per inch, and the ratio of the length to width is 19.8 9.

The company preferred to use a curved screen on both sides despite the fact that some companies have moved away from this design, and this raises questions about the problem of accidental touch of the edges and how the company will act to solve it.

The 120 Hz high refresh mode is activated by default in conjunction with the FHD resolution, unlike the Galaxy S20, which comes by default with a 60 Hz refresh rate, and the company made it possible to enjoy a true pilot experience through the use of a 120 Hz refresh rate with high resolution QHD+

The company added two new features to improve the viewing experience and content on the screen and left users the option to activate it, the first is the Vibrant color effect pro that improves colors and contrast while watching videos to produce more vivid colors,

This feature works remarkably when viewing content that contains bright colors, and the second feature is motion graphics smoothing, which increases the frame rate of videos that are played directly from the phone to make it clearer,

But it only works with specific apps like Photo Viewer, YouTube, Netflix and Prime Video.

the performance

The OnePlus 8 Pro has hardware that fits the flagship devices - as expected, given the Snapdragon 865 processor,The most powerful Qualcomm 2020 processor that comes with a Qualcomm X55 modem to enable users to enjoy a new fifth generation of connections in areas where this technology is available.

The company boosted the performance of its phone with 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 memory depending on the storage capacity of the version, whether it is 128 or 256 GB. The new memory secures 30% faster speed than the OnePlus 7 Pro, and saves 20% more power.

In terms of numbers, the OnePlus 8 Pro scored nearly 3305 points on the Geekbench 5.1 platform for multiple cores, beating its predecessor, OnePlus 7 Pro, which scored 2564 by a large margin, and also beat the Galaxy S20, which scored 3034 points.


The OnePlus 8 Pro comes with OxygenOS 10.0 which is the OnePlus version of Android, which has long been admired and praised by many.

Oxygen OS offers more customization options that include a wide range of fast gestures that help you open the camera, turn on the flashlight, or quickly open a specific application, and you can also adjust system colors, icons, and fonts directly from the settings.

The phone also supports the sixth generation of Wi-Fi 6 and the improved fifth generation of Bluetooth 5.1, and you can enjoy fast wireless connectivity if you have a router that supports this technology.


The OnePlus 8 Pro has the largest camera upgrade in the history of OnePlus, and it is not a regular upgrade, but an update worthy of the leading phones.

Where the company supplied its new phone with a four-camera system that it uses for the first time in its phones, consisting of a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor in the main optical and electronic camera (OIS EIS) with f / 1.78 lens, which is the largest sensor used by the company so far.

The company used a Sony IMX 586 48-megapixel sensor in the secondary wide-angle camera, although the field of view is approximately 120 degrees is not the widest field of view in smartphones, but this ensures that you include a larger scene from the main camera.

The third camera is devoted to the 5-megapixel color filter and f / 2.4 lens slot that can simulate the work of Instagram filters or other applications and directly available within the camera app.

The fourth camera is positioned independently alongside other cameras, and is an 8-megapixel close-up camera capable of optical zoom 3 times and 30 times hybrid zoom.

We have seen in recent years some smartphones that allow hybrid zoom 50 to 100 times, as in the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but the company says that its users are not interested in nearly 30 times more so far.

For the first time, it can compare the photos taken by the main camera in the OnePlus 8 Pro with the images of other leading phones such as the S20 Plus, it is great in good daylight conditions, and rich in detail.

The wide-angle camera delivers great pictures too. The color difference between the lenses is less clear than it was on the phone last year.

The main camera captures very good pictures in low and night light mode, especially when photographing buildings. The night shooting mode that the company called Nightscape excels in discovering and clarifying architectural details.

the battery

The OnePlus 8 Pro comes with the largest battery the company has used on its phones with a capacity of 4,510 mAh, as this power has become very familiar in the midst of the leading phones, due to the consumption of new screen technologies and the fifth generation of communications, more and more energy.

The company says it has put a lot of software effort into saving energy while maintaining the experience of using the screen with high accuracy and a high refresh rate.

And it has already succeeded in that, because using the full screen phone consumes an additional small percentage of energy compared to the normal resolution, we would have liked the company to have a refresh rate of 90 Hz as a compromise between the pleasure of the experience and energy saving.

The phone supports Warp 30T technology for 30W fast charging, which - as per the advertisement - can power the phone from 0 to 50 within 23 minutes, and the quick charger comes attached to the phone box.

Finally, OnePlus gave its users the wireless charging technology they were looking for, as the company was saying that it will only provide this technology if it can do enough.

The company named its wireless charging technology Warp Charge 30 Wireless and can power the phone from 1% to 50% in just 30 minutes, and the wireless charger is sold separately at a cost of $ 69.


The OnePlus 8 Pro phone not only has all the specifications and technologies of the leading phones, but also its high price, as the price of the phone starts from 899 dollars for the 128 GB version.

It is the most expensive phone the company has produced so far, despite the high price which the users are not accustomed to, but it is lower than the price of all competitors such as S20 Plus and iPhone 11 Pro.
