With its ace performance and excellent display, ONEPLUS 7 has climbed up the rankings like its predecessors OnePlus 6t & OnePlus 6. The smartphone has a powerful hardware coupled with deluxe design but comes at a little higher price rate than one would like.

The handset shows off a dewdrop notch which lodges the front camera. OnePlus opts for corning Gorilla Glass display protection for both front and rear glass body.

2ONEPLUS 7 Specifications: HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
The smartphone is powered by 2.84 GHz Qualcomm Octa Core Snapdragon 855 SoC. It comes in two variants viz. 8GB RAM, 256GB storage and a base variant with 6GB RAM, 128GB storage. The storage used by the brands in UFS 3.0 unlike the usual UFS 2.1 that most smartphones use. With these high-end hardware specifications, ONEPLUS 7 is your ultimate partner if you are a gaming addict. The ONEPLUS 7 phone can handle and run with ease all the games out there. The new smartphone also sports a 3700 mAh battery that gives out a full day battery life to its neat performance. The brand completes the ONEPLUS 7 box with a 20W charger that charges the phone fully within an hour.
On the software front, the handset comes with Android 9 Pie with Oxygen OS 9.5. OxygenOS shows some add on features to the previous gaming mode feature. The updated OxygenOS comes with a new Fnatic mode that was earlier present in only ONEPLUS 7 pro. OnePlus has even gone farther to include a feature named Zen Mode. The feature is designed to disable all the functions on your phone. Once enabled, you can not switch if off for the next 20 minutes. Throughout the time that the feature is enabled, you can just receive or make emergency calls and access camera.
3ONEPLUS 7 Specifications: NETWORK, CONNECTIVITY AND SENSORS
The phone boasts an in-display fingerprint sensor which is noticeably faster than the one in OnePlus 6T. It also has face recognition unlock feature, whose working efficiency depends upon the light. In addition, the phone also sports Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass and Gyroscope. On the network and connectivity front, the phone holds 2 SIM card slots supporting Nano sized SIM cards. The phone has WiFi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz, MIMO along with v5.0 bluetooth, A-GPS, Glonass and VoLTE.
Another change that OnePlus has introduced through its gadget ONEPLUS 7 is its stereo sound output. The earpiece acts as a second speaker. The lower aluminium frame houses the bottom-firing speaker and USB Type C port. The top right side of the aluminium frame holds power button and alert slider while the top left side holds volume buttons.
4ONEPLUS 7 Specifications: CAMERA
ONEPLUS 7 camera panel on the rear holds dual camera. The camera panel sports a 49MP Sony IMX586 primary camera with an aperture of f/1.7, PDAF and OIS. The secondary camera is a 5MP depth sensor. On the front, the handset holds a 16MP single camera. The phone features a 4k video recording resolution. The ONEPLUS 7 camera quality is subpar, ruining the overall experience a little. The phone comes in two colours viz. Red and Mirror Grey. The Red variant of V is a little too bright for our taste and we would any time prefer Mirror Grey over it. ONEPLUS 7 price in India is set to INR 32,999 only.
The overall features of ONEPLUS 7 are top-in-line and the brand is once again ruling the domain. If camera does not bother you, the phone is a perfect choice for you. The processor that the phone packs within has no competitor in the market yet. The oxygenOS adds extra to the phone making it a full package. Only the phone’s sub par camera quality disturbs the candidature of the handset. By far, the phone is worth every penny.
