    For years, I’ve been recommending OnePlus phones as the best value you can get, period. Well, I've just spent a week and a half with the all-new OnePlus 7 Pro, and it’s the best value you can get … comma … in a certain buyer segment. Let’s see what it means when OnePlus goes Pro in the OnePlus 7 Pro Review!

    Yes but it doesn't have a headphone Jack. I love this phone but I will not buy a phone that doesn't have a headphone jack

    I agree on the camera. But honestly, everything else destroys anything on the current market. The OS is the snappiest I've ever experienced. Refresh rates insane. The feel of the phone with the haptic feedback is superb. The battery never lets me down... I can't say that anything has ever come so close to being absolutely perfect (save for the camera, pixel 3 XL had me there). It's by far the best smartphone experience I've ever had.

    once the camera is the main focus of the review, you can't really call it a smartphone review anymore

      Not really. With smartphone companies putting so effort into their cameras, they're quite important nowerdays. Especially as many people rely on their smartphone instead of owning a DSLR now.

    Huge respect to Micheal because of being honest while all the other bloggers are probably getting Chinese support for their channel this channel remains neutral. My previous phone was one plus 3T and it can not even be compared to my galaxy note 3 which I used for 3 years. One plus with its huge marketing in youtube and internet kept its quality barely one year. And then it began terribly slow down freeze and eventually became a piece of garbage. If I compare that to my old Galaxy note 3 phone which lasted 3 years under heavy use, no way Samsung has heck a lot of reliability. As what comes about dishonest TVcliprs like Dave2D, MHKB, and Unboxing Therapy they are simply making money and when it comes to chines junk producers they realized that internet marketing particularly youtube marketing is way more effective than tv and others. In one word from my experience DON'T BUY ANY CHINESE JUNK.

    The OnePlus 7 pro has the hardware to impress and the software is blistering. I can't say it's the greatest phone I've ever owned but I can say it's the best media phone I've ever had bar none. It's my big screen phone for TVclip and Netflix etc and it is perfection. It's loud, it's screen is amazing and it's cameras give incredible flexibility. It's my boom box at work while I cut meat. I left my note 9 for it and my daily driver is now the OnePlus 7 12 gigabyte ram from China and the T-Mobile OnePlus 7 pro. If Samsung is going to ditch my headphone jack and prepare to drop expandable storage then I'm dropping them. The Note 10 is the note 5 reborn and I didn't buy that thing either. I encourage others to try OnePlus and find out what buttery smooth feels like without touching a single setting.

    Mr. Mobile: A lot folks buy a phone for the camera these days.
    Me: I haven't taken a photo in years.

    Have the Oneplus 6. Never will I buy a Oneplus again. Such a dull boring smartphone. And after 1 year it seems battery life is already degrading. Don't like the screen don't know exactly why. My Nokia 1520 WM phone was much more satisfying. I will receive Samsung Not 10+ today. Have to wait what that brings. Not an Android or pseudo Android (iphone) fan. Seems all the same to me. The bigger screen and IP68 enclosure should make the Note more usable on my motorcycle. Oneplus still doesn't have certified IP value I see.

    Hello I don't know if my text will reach you but I'll give it a try Mr Mobile I'm a huge fan of yours and I was wondering have you heard about this new phone called the Titan from a company called Unihertz it's similar with the BlackBerry passport but it's built like a tank I was wondering can you please do a review I really trust your opinion a lot and you probably have a lot on your plate but I want to give a shot thank you for your time

    I've had this phone for a few days and really like it. I just wish the volume was on the right side. I'm used to holding a phone with my right hand and using the volume with my thumb.

    This review feels like you took the worst feature of the one plus 7 pro and decided to put it center stage. It’s as if I was reviewing a Lion and talking about how poor it performed at the pool x) “ Yeah, it’s true it’s got a nice ROAR, and yes it will hunt an antilope but, when we through it in the pool, it had minimal swimming skills. I can’t recommend the Lion, it’s an underwhelming animal “ 😂😂

    Not a great phone?? Really?? Camera is not everything you know? The oneplus 7 Pro is the fastest and most gorgeous phone on the market and one of the phew phones with an actual 90 hz display that goes up to 1440 p... What more can you demand? If you are a photographer you should buy a camera. Oneplus may not have the best camera but instead they focus on the performance of the device...

    When you were using the selfie cam to record, your voice sounded so tinny, I've heard that on a few other TVclip videos.

    I've got an OP5T and honestly, other than battery degradation, this almost 2 year old phone still runs like new. One Plus has my vote of confidence when it comes to software and longevity, Samsung does not.

      The funny thing is seeing Michael harp on the phone a bit had the opposite effect and got me more interested in the phone than I normally would've been.
      And come two weeks ago, I now own the OnePlus 7 Pro 😉

    6:37 Seriously who buys a phone based on the camera? The camera has got to be the least of my concerns. If you're really into photography then you're not using your phone for that in the first place.

    I am personally going to wait until we get under display cameras because a moving camera is too much of a compromise for me. Besides, my S8+ is still a great phone to use.

  • RC Hammer

    Samsung is a utilitarian device. OnePlus is a top-of-the-line swap meet special. I use Dex for presentations in conference rooms without a tablet or laptop, listen to hi-res audio via 3.5, use wireless charging for convenience and preserve the port, take pictures of commercial equipment, etc...
    One Plus has warp charging, but no wireless; has full display, but a mechanical pop up camera like other budget phones and could render the camera useless if something goes wrong with it; is marginally faster with a less feature rich UI, and a 90hz for scrolling up and down instagram; Oh the display is Samsung.
    Lot of people just don't get the big picture; so short sighted.

  • Hari Sankar

    This is in fact one of the rare mrmobile videos I considered unfair. He focused too much on the camera quality while ignoring the fact that software updates can improve the camera quality significantly (and they did) and that gcam port is available for this device as well. He also merely glossed over the great software, performance and display of this device. Yes S10E has more features but any feature has relevance only if there is a use case scenario (eg: most wireless chargers I have seen in shops are only 5w or 10w which is significantly slower than 30w warp charging). Besides S10E was too small a device for me and I also preferred the true full screen display offered by Oneplus. I do however consider the omission of headphone jack unfortunate.However I have earlier itself adopted the wireless lifestyle.
    P. S: After using a galaxy S8 for two years I began to prefer great software, speedy performance and very good battery life over everything else.

      @n m I super agree. I tried to get into professional photography once upon a time. I failed, but I learned that DSLRs are severely supreme to cellphone cameras, and now cellphone cameras are almost a non-existing factor for me. Sure cellphone cameras have their utility uses, and bringing out a DSLR can be a bit of a hassle, but like others have said, I care more about the hardware and software, and it seems to be amazing (shopping for new phone now, upgrading from the Moto Z2 Force, which I fucking love(d)).

    • Anas Khateeb

      Yes agree. Don't agree with him in this. Cuz I sold my stupid note 10 plus and kept this phone. Note 10 plus is very over rated. Don't buy if you don't have the trade in.

      Agreed, display, fast charging, snappy fast. Price and more. Idk why he is stuck at camera, it's not a DSLR camera review. It's a smartphone, what about signal quality, voice quality, Oxygen os etc. This was disappointing

    • Christopher Skaggs
      Christopher Skaggs 2 months ago +4

      Agree. This video is unjustly criticizing the phone for things and not calling out where it well exceeds technological capabilities when compared to many other premium handsets. The 90hz refresh display is out of this world and it's merely touched upon here.
