Listen: Everything we still want to see in the OnePlus 7 Pro
"One plus seven pro is coming at the end of this week to North America may seventeenth. It's going to start at six hundred sixty nine dollars or not going to bury the lead. This is the most expensive one plus phone ever released. We'll sort of but. Let's let's dive into why. Because this is definitely the most impressive phone the company's ever put out, Alex. What have you taken away with your from your few days with it so far? So the first thing to sort of understand is that we have two phones, but it's not a one plus seven on a one plus seven light does a reason why it's one plus seven out of one plus seven pro. So you have the rails, which will talk about an aside. But it's regular is pretty much the phone that you would expect one plus to release this time of year. The reason why the pro is because they're actually taking a step beyond that place that you would normally expect to won't plus fun to occupy. So there are a lot of significant hardware improvement. So we'll have design improvements. The phone is just a lot more impressive attack level and will competitive with the likes of Samsung an app even apple on this is one plus taking to the next level in the pro Monica really means is that it's than Olonga just sort of scrappy upstart company that will sell you something. With the latest Snapdragon new stock Android for reasonably affordable price. They were actually sort of taking it to the big players in the game. I think with the pro. Yeah. It really feels more like an actual direct competitor rather than just talking about the the whole further price thing. Yeah. Where especially when you when you look at things like what they've done with the display. We'll talk about the display a ton and the design and just a few of the the additions all around it doesn't feel so much a bare bones kind of reference designee type of phone. I mean, even the six and six T, which you were the best designs. It's definitely gotten better with each generation and even their half generations of the T models. The seven pro feels like dramatically different device on a completely separate track and level from the phones before it in terms of hardware. Just. Design wise, you can stick any premium small manufacturers logo on the back of this thing, and it wouldn't look out of place. Absolutely. All right. So this is the company's first phone with triple camera setup. It has a ninety hurts display. It has arguably one it's it's gone from having some plus phones have gone from having some of the worst hap- deke's to having among the best haptic. So everything in here has been improved. It has obviously the latest Snapdragon processor up to twelve gigs of ram up to five hundred twelve gigabytes of storage, stereo speakers. Yes. Dairy speakers. What it doesn't have off the bat. We it does not have wireless charging, and it is not technically water resistant. It doesn't have an IP certification. If you've seen the bucket promo that was released a guess now just under two weeks ago. You'll know what that means the company does not like paying for that. IP certification. But it's also saying that it'll withstand some ingress, you shouldn't probably swim with it. So these are the compromises that plus made to keep the price at a relatively low number six hundred sixty nine dollars is still wait Scheepers than even the galaxy ten e and yet this is clearly aimed at the top of the line products on the market, and it's got carrier partnerships, or at least partnership in the US to boot. So Alex where where does this place one plus in the ecosystem now, especially in the west, I think you have to treat them as as of much table manufacture, right? They've been they've been a long time. It's been a long time coming, but I would have -solutely in terms of the market presence that the the maybe not quite right up with with. Aung maybe this is me of having blinders on little bit in this small phone enthusiasts spice, the we all live in. But I think we in terms of the quality of the products, the price, you have to treat them as one of the plays out that especially if you look at what people"
