Underwater OnePlus 7 Pro Review

  • Published on May 14, 2019
  • 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?

      Really wish they took after Samsung and made a smaller version similar to the S10E personally, I would buy it in a heartbeat!

      @Milos Vucinic I dropped my OnePlus a million times and it only has one scratch, and it's only visible when it's off with a flashlight on it

      Just bought it and I'm super satisfied!!! The phone is just great, don't mind the curved edges and 7-8 hours of on screen time is a reality I also love! Thank you for the "ip test". I am even more happy now! 😉

    Just wanted to comment that the face unlock feature on my 7 pro is insanely fast. I don't even notice the camera. I just got the phone so maybe its something that has been fixed since this video was posted.

    Oh, this is the best review of this phone.
    Got it a few days ago upgrading from a 5T and I love it!
    The only thing that I feel it's a downgrade is the unlocking experience. Not just the face unlock, but every option I have of unlocking the phone is slower or worse than the 5T. The face unlock is slower, and while the fingerprint scanner is fast, I can't unlock the phone without turning the screen on. With the 5T, tap the sensor and you're in! With the 7 pro I have to double tap, wait for it to turn on, tap again, and only then I'm in.
    The real downgrade is the absence of a pocket mode. It has a proximity sensor, why can't I use it? The camera pops up in my pocket some times, and I have the fear it might break. Also, I've turned on my flashlight, airplane mode, turned off WiFi/data and the automatic rotation too many times in those two days while the phone was in my pocket. Why isn't anybody talking about this?

    Is anyone else having an issue with the front facing camera? I'm not able to use any of my app including the camera app while using the front facing camera. The camera will automatically retract itself then give a pop up a msg saying "Please insure there no obstructions. If the issue persist, please contact our customer services".

    If the 12 gb model comes down a bit more, I'd buy it as my daily driver for the next 5 years at least xD
    Edit: I posted this when I thought I could only get one for like 900-1000 bucks through newegg. Apparently they are 750? That's a steal compared to the 7t @ 650 right now. I would honestly pay 650 for the 7 pro 12gb model though. I feel almost stupid agreeing to spend that much money on a damn cell phone but I honestly think it's worth it. That's a good handful of tech in one small package.

      7t is like that poor combo of a smaller battery but still awesome screen, pretty sure the usability is gonna be hit hard on that phone; while the 7t pro feels more like an Apple-ish update. 7 pro is still the best bang for the buck oneplus phone in 2019

    f-ing gay ass phone reviews is what western society has come to, never mind the massive influx of "no background checks needed" refugees with questionable religious beliefs, with no skills or whatsoever, relying on tax payer money to stay afloat,, sorry the rant was completely unrelated, the reviewer just reminded me of justin truduea because of the gay/spineless liberal mannerism

    While the Oneplus phones have great face unlock accuracy and timing, I'm willing to trade having a pop-up camera that's disabled just to lose the front camera. The finger scanner is good enough not to really miss it.

    this is how I've customized my OP7pro:
    First, I disabled home buttons and used gestures. So now the bottom of
    the phone is bezel-less and does not have a software "bezel"
    next, I turned on developer mode + USB debugging
    Now, run these commands once you've installed ADB:
    adb shell wm overscan 0,-100,0,0
    adb shell pm disable-user com.android.traceur
    adb shell pm disable-user com.oneplus.opbugreportlite
    adb shell pm disable-user com.oneplus.brickmode
    adb shell pm disable-user net.oneplus.odm
    adb shell pm disable-user net.oneplus.odm.provider
    adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.cellbroadcastreceiver
    The overscan removes the top notification bar. If you want. Now my phone
    is 100% bezel free. You can install widgets to give you the information
    you need (Battery, etc)
    The android.cellbroadcastreceiver will disable amber alerts as well as
    presidential alerts. THIS IS USEFUL FOR CANADIANS as all alerts are
    presidential level.
    The brickmode one is the zen mode. At the very least I think most people want this option (to disable it)

    you should just leave the phone in the water with the timer on, and maybe leave it recording to see how long it can last. Just to see..

    For the people watching this: Jerry Rigs Everything revealed, that every entrypoint of this device, sim tray, camera mechanics and so on are sealed with a rubber-seal, and the speakers are covered with tight mesh.
    It is probably as water proof as other IP## smartphones, but it is highly water resistent, that is for sure.

    Don't you ever drop your oneplus 7pro into water / pool.
    I've used oneplus 7pro about a month ago, and yesterday my phone wes dropped into a pool about 5 minutes (my stupid friend did it). I've drained it, and then the camera was fogging, after 2 hours, the device couldn't start.
    Poor me, am in Indonesia and there's no service center for oneplus....

    i really hope high refresh rate phones become a norm in the future. also phones take an extremely good advantage of high refresh rate. i dont know if its just my eyes or what, but the smaller the device is, the better the higher hz feels like. this is coming from a person who owns a 144hz 24" monitor.

    Seems that nobody is mentioning this - the wide angle lens on the OP7 PRO (I had it for 2 months now) distorts so much it is close to useless, in the sense that the quality of the photo is quite bad - distortion and corner softness is very very bad! So I`m not sure that the wide angle lens camera counts if the photos have such low quality. sure you have it but...

    Watching phone tear downs of this device shows that all the necessary rubber grommets are installed for it to be an IPV certified device (even one on the camera module that protects both open and closed) so water wont get into the internals through any of the holes, obviously oneplus just didnt pay for the certification to keep costs down.

    Definitely appreciate the look at the water resistance. Agree on the curved edges though, it kinda bugs me. Still love the phone feel. And my coworkers who use iPhones love the fingerprint response time.
