Underwater OnePlus 7 Pro Review

My review and water test of the OnePlus 7 Pro. This is the fastest android phone on the market - has no notch, no hole but is somehow VERY water resistant.
OP7 Pro - amzn.to/2WIlJ1J
The pop-up camera on the OnePlus 7 allows this camera to have a completely clean front with no protrusions or visual obstructions. The curved edges look awesome but it's a change to the oneplus design that can hinder usability.

The distortion and shimmering water in the jug made the phone look like it was turning off constantly. I was so distracted. Thanks for watching! Is the OnePlus 7 what you hoped for? Is it too expensive for what it is?

TechDove what about the 8 pro? They’re both amazing for gaming too
5e6 Julian HADDAD
No it isn’t too expensive

the face unlock time is meaningless as in real every day use who the fuck stares at the black screen for several seconds before pressing the button to activate face unlocking?! the fucking camera moves out way before you actually get that phone up to your face with your hand smh

i don't mind a curved screen except on the Note phones which should be perfectly flat so you can write on the entire display. Supposedly this phone is engineered to be waterproof, but they didn't want to spend the money to have it certified, as it would raise the retail price.. Love the no notch and pop-up camera. Just picked up this phone for just $450 at T-Mobile..great value especially with 2 more yrs of android support.

While it has been almost a year the s20s has came out. I went looking for a galaxy phone because for the past I don't know how long I have been a Samsung guy. I mean I haven't had many phones tho because I wear them out before I had the original note then one of the main galaxy phones and the j7 prime. I went looking for the s10e because this phone was going to be a gift from my mom. The s10e was still priced at a pretty up there price at $599. We thought about doing a BOGO because my mom is starting to need a new phone herself but did not need that extra line and while I knew it wasn't really worth it because that cost of an usless line pays for the "free" phone I had already done the math. We could have got a cpl extra features on our account and Netflix. The rep was honest and said that really is not worth it. You only save a little on the phone. He asked if I was a just a Samsung guy. I kinda was but he started showing me some of the one plus phones. They had out the McLaren,7t, and the 7tpro. At first he did not think that that had this one in stock but could order one. Turns out they did and it was even cheaper than eat they had it marked at. I got the one+ 7pro For $450.

Comparing the phone price 3-4 years ago to today just unfair, we can't ignore that all the flagship increasing the phone every year until reach 1000 USD and more. Oneplus still keep the price below 800 USD with the flagship features is still worth to buy.
Adam & Amanda Sullivan
So I have bought two OnePlus 7t pro McLaren's and they absolutely suck!!! So so so many problems with this phone it's not even funny... I really really wanted to like this phone but it has some serious issues... Unless I have the worst luck in the world and just happened to get two faulty phones that have the exact same problems, this phone is hot garbage. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
Chris Jonesington
This screen is what made me jump ship from Samsung. Had my S8+ for almost 3 years because the S9 wasn't a big enough upgrade, then they started with the holes in screen for front facing camera. Was hoping they'd come to their senses with the S20, but nope, so bye bye Samsung, I might be back when you stop messing up the screen with distracting holes.

Also they should say dual speakers no stereo. Its a good set up, highs in one, mids and lows in the other. That's not stereo but its better imo

6 in of water is not a test .. you should start at 3ft and then at 6ft water pressure will be different

I really enjoyed your review. Straight and to the point. I took the jump yesterday and ordered the 7pro. Your comments are encouraging. To me Oneplus is not producing an expensive phone just to have a competing product. As with all previous phones it is attacking a segment of the market. With this it is taking on the ever-inflated prices of the big manufacturers. If nobody else can do it Oneplus will for sure.

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed this. At 0:47 second of this video, Dave resets the stop watch in phone and it shows 0:00 :02 which means the video is 45 seconds early. And at 7:19 of the video , OP7 timer shows 09:16 minutes.. How did the stopwatch in the oneplus surpass the video time .Where did so much of time difference come from ??

The vibration motor in older OnePlus phones is actually just fine. OxygenOS just "detuned" the motor to make it less obnoxious.

i purchased this device dec 2019 for $699 canadian and am kinda nuts about it. consumers like me who use their phones primarily to view streaming content (what’s a television???) but who never again want to pay $1400 for a device as i dis with my last iphone will be very satisfied with this device. expensive for oneplus maybe but at half the price of a comparable iphone it still feels ‘budget’ to me! curved edges take some getting used to but they beat watching content obstructed by a giant notch or an annoying punch hole any day. so long flagships, you’ve gouged me for NOTHING for too long and now you’re done

I went on this video just to post my personal anecdote about the waterproofing of this phone: Accidently dropped it in 7ft of saltwater tying a boat to a dock (it was in my top shirt pocket). Decided it was probably dead so my friends and I decided to go eat. An HOUR LATER I offer my friend $100 if he could dive in and find it. Well he did, and 2 DAYS later it is still in perfect working condition. I am still dumbstruck. This phone is an absolute tank.

@Rafael Santiago Toro Astonishingly, yes! I'm still having no problems and it is still working as well as it was when I opened it from the box. The waterproofing on this phone is serious.

When OnePlus 1 was $300/$350, the iPhone was $650/$750. Now OnePlus 7 is $700 and iPhone is $1000 (not counting the "cheap" model). Can't really say I see any difference here...

i believe the phone doesn't have an official IP rating because it would raise the price of the device and OnePlus wanted to keep the price as low as possible or sum like that
