OnePlus 8 Pro review: specs and price

The OnePlus 8 Pro is an Android smartphone that is marketed as “leading with speed,” and that’s actually quite accurate. And when they say speed, they mean it. 5G capabilities back this lightning fast phone, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. The 120 Hz Fluid Display allows users to enjoy the magnificent beauty of 1.07 billion possible hues (that’s 64 times more than other mainstream phones).

Perhaps one of the OnePlus 8 Pro’s most impressive features is the fact that Warp Charge 30 wireless features allow you to charge the phone up to 50% in as fast as 30 minutes. That’s all due to the 4510mAh battery which, despite being so full of power, doesn’t cause the phone to weigh too much; it comes in at just under 200g.

The OnePlus 8 Pro features an impressive 48 MP quad camera boasting the capacity to take photos with a dramatic 120° field of view. Smart Pet Capture and Macro Mode are just two of the many features that will allow you to take professional-quality photos without much effort.

Pros

  • Großes Display
  • Schnelles Laden

Cons

  • Kleiner Akku
  • Unhandlich

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
7.brightness

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A nit is a measurement of the light that a display emits, equal to one candela per square meter. Brighter displays ensure a screen's contents are easy to read, even in sunny conditions.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.

7.CPU speed

1 x 2.84GHz & 3 x 2.42GHz & 4 x 1.8GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 865)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

48MP & 48MP & 8MP & 5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.wide aperture (main camera)

f/1.8 & f/2.2 & f/2.4 & f/2.4

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
7.has a BSI sensor
OnePlus 8 Pro
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
