    Can you do a re review of the camera with 9.5.7 update?
    Camera is WAY better now and fixes all the issues you mentioned

    "The simple fact is that a lot of folks buy phones based on the camera these days." If that is the main reason to upgrade why not just buy a real camera?

    OnePlus 7 Pro is very expensive in my country. The price for the base model is the same as the price for a base S10+.
    Samsung also have a much much better customer service + official support for VOLTE, Samsung Pay...
    BUT the slow charging speed is holding me back from buying

    Very honest review, I would miss ip68, wireless & no micro s/d support. 90hz display, warp charging, speed demon are things I like. Still, at 750.00, 12gb's & 256gb's of storage not to shabby!

    Hi Sir, Waiting for your One Plus 7 and the Asus Zenfone 6 review.
    When is it coming?

  • Garrett Brown
    Garrett Brown 12 days ago

    Being that I've always been a name brand guy buying only Samsung and Apple I can say I'm happy with this phone. Them again I'm not a fan of wireless charging yet, I've never comes close to filling my phones up storage wise, and I own three pairs of Bluetooth headsets missing those features isn't a big deal to me.
    The camera to me is fine, I'm not a professional photographer, although the last between shots is noticable, though I don't take a bunch of photos compared to allot of people so it doesn't bother me to much.
    Where it does make up though is in what I feel the most important aspects speed and screen. Being able to watch videos without a notch or hole punch, and being able to switch between apps quickly are more important than the camera that I use maybe twice a day.
    OxygenOS has also become my favorite as with Samsung's design language hasn't really changed, only tweaked so like iOS it became stale. Also within my first two weeks owning the de ice I've gotten three OTA updates which shows they're on the ball with software.
    Everyone's usage is different though, so this phone isn't for everyone. I do enjoy it, my girl is slowly coming around, but she prefers simplicity, so naturally she's still eyeballing the S10 but is atleast giving this phone a shot.

    OP needs to reboot their phone series and start back by making budget phones with the essentials like the headphone jack. I don't care for it all that much but other people certainly do. Their competition is beating them hard. Just to sell those bullets earbuds, they jeopardized their smartphone front. If they continue like this, they'll lose out to the competition and die out. We can't have that.

    Im still using the samsung S6 edge (16MP) and I gotta say, the camera quality is still on par with the current flagships phones. Yes, you can pick out some minor differences here and there but all in all camera quality has not improved that much since 2015.

    If you care about camera's, wireless charging and a headphone jack then go with the S10 series. If you just want a big 90hz display then go with the Oneplus. Everything else is minimal. I own both and it just depends on what you truly care about

    You use your screen 100 percent of the time you use your phone, while you use your camera less than 1 percent of the time. Having a good screen and a lousier camera scores higher than the opposite in terms of pure utility

  • Bennett Huke
    Bennett Huke 19 days ago

    Really hoping for a google camera mod. The sensor got lots of potential just needs good software. Still think that OnePlus is the Phone of Speed. With best in class Os and Best possible specs and now also the fastest screen. S10 is now the allrounder phone. It does nothing the best but everything great. If you want the Allrounder take the S10, If Speed and Fluidity is most important take the OnePlus. Simple as that.

    I love your reviews and will always value your humble opinion, but I feel like you've been a bit harsh on this phone. Fair enough there was a lot of hype building, but there are valid reasons why. It's getting software updates like twice a week at the moment, the sensor is extremely capable, just software letting down a bit. Keep in mind that OxygenOS is a really clean experience, but it is down to personal preference. And trust me, after seeing 90hz on OLED, go to a store and compare to anything else more expensive, and you won't be able to go back. (BTW I Bought the phone and is currently my daily driver, 0 regrets, 100% satisfied, popup camera is sexy)

    really harsh opinion from you, I think this review is just wrong, people DON'T buy smartphones for the camera and the proof is in the MKBHD blind camera test, other than that oneplus 7 pro has one of the best screens ever, best design, best performance, fantastic software, super fast charging, decent battery etc. and it still costs much less than competition....

      I mean it all comes down to preference really.
      On one side, with the S10 you get wireless charging, a headphones jack, IP rating, better camera in most areas...
      With the 7 Pro you get a 90HZ screen with no notch and Oxygen OS. Dash charging some say makes up for the lack of wireless charging and the camera is in no way terrible. Plus it is "water resistant" so it's a tricky one.
      For me personally I don't care about the things I listed about the S10 and so I'd rather get the 7 Pro for the new features rather than features that I won't use on the S10. But everyone's different 😃

    Sooo , it's the best phone they've ever made but it's "settling"? I got one the day it was released on T-Mobile (coming from a Note 8) and it is amazing -for the quality and support- and the sum of its parts! Samsung is great but I didn't feel pride in it anymore like I do with the 7pro! That's my own hang-up I guess.....

  • Nick Wey
    Nick Wey 26 days ago

    Great camera(Not the best) + trashy performance(display+spec+battery) = Great Budget Phone(Pixel 3a); Mediocre camera + top performance = Not Recommended. Meh... I don';t think this is common people's shopping logic.

  • crazybeartimba
    crazybeartimba 26 days ago

    Appreciate the honesty and not over hyping the phone. It's definitely a looker but you're right. The OnePlus cameras are lacking and they rely on the software far too much. Will stick with the 6 for now :)

    Without IP 68, wireless charging and headphone jack, the base model should only retail for $299 and the top-of-the-line model at $450. Besides, Orange Hitler will come after Oppo when they get too big like Huawei.

    Sir i want an honest opinion. I’ve been using iphone 6plus for the past 2.5 years and i’m heavily backed up by the eco-system. I use earpods,beats headphones(with w1),i’ve got a mac and ipad pro(15). Now i’m gonna buy a phone soon. What should i buy? I’m really interested in xr but op7pro’s display is insane. I’m not a big samsung fan so not gonna go down that road for sure. Where should i go? Should i choose a brand new all screen 90hz class display with snappy animations and a decent camera or should i go with an inferior display but with smooth ios buttery experience and that ecosystem!

    yes, we have to ask one plus for the things you are naming but if you moan about the price now if they included what you asked would you be willing to pay for it? A company has to grow and the starter price is still great £649 and if we are comparing prices lets do it honestly the s10e cost more when it came out but it's now that it is cheaper it was in the UK the same price as an iPhone XR. Time doesn't stand still yet we keeping asking companies to do so whilst giving more.

    Eric Rains 27 days ago

    I have the unlocked Galaxy S10+ and went to my local T-mobile to compare it to the 7 pro. The 7 pro is a beautiful looking and a well made phone but it is big and it is HEAVY more than a note 9. The screen looks to wrap more around than my S10+. I tried 90hz vs my S10+ my old eyes can't tell I guess. The notchless screen is awesome but the things that scared me off were no AOD, speakers were not as crisp as the S10+, no headphone jack, no SD card expansion, tried the camera it is ok but yeah not at the S10+ level, motorized camera is a don't care as I do not take a lot of selfies but the two big no go's is wireless charging I have it everywhere and it is a feature I really would miss knowing yes not as fast as warp charging but so darn convenient and the weight and size over time may become a burden. My S10+ feels feather light by comparison. I traded in my old Pixel 2 XL and got the S10+ for less the the base 7 pro. Great review Michael!

    DC dimming isn’t just for creating good videos .... as mentioned it’s Flickr free.. so it helps us the minority hopefully have much better tech in our hands. Amoled is a nightmare for us and finally finally we have some adjustment to what the rest take for granted. No issues with a screen. It’s been a nightmare and I hope just hope this works DC Dimming, not just for good videos but the minority:)
