The OnePlus 8 Pro is the company’s flagship smartphone for 2020. Starting at $ 899, the OnePlus 8 Pro is easily the most expensive smartphone ever launched.
For many years, OnePlus has been a leader since its inception as a ‘flagship developer’. Rebellious adolescence is certainly geared towards good marketing, and it is not a sustainable business model, especially if the company has to maintain growing competitiveness and maintain its performance standards.
So now we have the OnePlus 8 Pro which is the most expensive and one of the most complete device ever offered by OnePlus. Remember how one thing was missing from the OnePlus smartphone feature list every year? Well, not this year. With no flexible screens, the OnePlus 8 Pro has everything you could think of.
QHD 120Hz AMOLED display? Check. The main chipset? Check. Lots of cameras? Check. Fast charging, wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging? Check, check, check. There is even a dust and water-resistant grade this year.
This should be the dream OnePlus smartphone. Maybe the dream smartphone, period. In many ways it was. When we first reviewed it, we were impressed with the overall package. Many of our complaints can be summed up as mere picks, which is not always the case on every major device. Unlike many other flagships, the OnePlus 8 Pro was still a bit cheap, and it offered a relatively – shocking – good value. It was a particularly good value in India as the 2020 OnePlus phones are cheaper than those around the world.
So now that this phone has been on the market for a while we have a chance to live with it everyday. This includes not only going through what the phone has to offer on a daily basis, but also getting software updates and watching things unfold over time. So here are our final thoughts after a few weeks with the OnePlus 8 Pro.
