OnePlus 8 Pro review

OnePlus is now launching the eighth edition of its popular smartphone series. But this time, a lot has happened. What should immediately catch most people’s eye is probably the price of the new smartphone from the Far East. For example, you have to spend at least 899 euros on the counter to purchase the OnePlus 8 Pro. In comparison, the pioneer, the One Plus One, cost just 269 euros at the time of market launch. But is the much higher price for the Chinese company’s latest “flagship killer” worth it? We would like to take a closer look at this in our test.

The OnePlus success story began in April 2014 with the market launch of the OnePlus One.

The way in another direction

With OnePlus you can truly speak of a success story. The Chinese company started out as a small start-up that wanted to enrich and stir up the world of smartphones when it was founded in 2013. With the market launch of its first smartphone, the OnePlus One, the company was already able to build a reliable and enthusiastic fanbase around itself. In the meantime, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is one of the big players in the smartphone market. The first smartphone in the success story was the OnePlus One in April 2014, which already showed the clear line the company is following. The goal was always to create a smartphone that could score points with an unrivalled price-performance ratio.

With the OnePlus 8 Pro you have the choice of three colours. Apart from the version in Glacial Green that we tested, you can choose between Onyx Black or Ultramarine Blue.

But now something seems to have changed. The elephant in the room is the price. Comparing the prices of the market launch, the new OnePlus 8 Pro costs more than three times the price of the OnePlus One. Here, something seems to have changed in the company strategy. This change already began last year with the OnePlus 7T. While the first six generations of the smartphone made compromises in favour of important and practical functions, the OnePlus 7, for example, offered a really good camera for the first time. This was always a weakness of its predecessors. However, the camera of a smartphone in particular causes high costs, which are reflected in the final market price. In addition to a good camera, this year’s OnePlus Pro is supposed to boast other features such as IP certification and wireless charging.

The data sheet

What immediately stands out at first glance is the power that is under the hood of the OnePlus 8 Pro. The Chinese company relies on the powerful Snapdragon 865, which not only offers a lot of power, but is also prepared for the future. With an integrated X55 modem, the powerful processor becomes a 5G processor. Thus, the new mobile phone standard can come for buyers of the OnePlus 8 Pro. The high-end smartphone’s RAM also makes for big eyes. After all, up to 12 GB RAM is possible in the new OnePlus. The basic version still offers a proud 8 GB. The fact that the memory can’t be expanded is sobering. The buyer must be satisfied with the built-in memory of 128 GB or 256 GB.

The scope of delivery

OnePlus does not experiment with the scope of delivery. The 30 watt strong adapter and the mobile phone cover are very commendable. Here, OnePlus shows itself to be generous.
In addition to the usual important papers, OnePlus includes a practical protective film for the display.
