OnePlus 8 Pro 2 Months Later - Good UPDATES?

You know what they say: "Be careful what you wish for cause you might just get it."
I've been reviewing OnePlus phones since the 3T and every single one was marred by the word "but," and the infamous "for the price" catch phrase. The phone is great, "but" it lacks water resistance. Or it's water resistant "but" it lacks a certification. Or the display is 90hz "but" its very dim. Or Warp Charging is super fast "but" there's no wireless charging. Or the camera has improved "but" it's only good "for the price."
We Powerusers are like Darth Vader. We'll hold any company accountable for what they promise, even remotely while staying at home. I know, I loved the meme. Point is, I think OnePlus got tired of having its strategy be considered an excuse.
This is the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company's showcase of what it's like to lead with speed, and really, and what I'd call, the company's first-ever true flagship, that's still priced a tad below than the phones it trying to compete with. This phone actually felt more baked than the OnePlus 8 when I first started testing, but it's received the same exact software updates, so let's see if it does live up to the major leagues. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow, and this is our review a month later.

  • I know that Connectivity Varies with Mobile Carriers, but could you do a possible Wifi and whatever carrier you have review? In my experience Samsung's antennas are far superior to other manufacturers. I live in the Vermont mountains and less than 1 mile can be the difference between have 1 bar of service that works and holds a call, to having no service at all. Connectivity is very important to me, how far does the phone hold Signal, and is it a usable signal (call, text, google search, etc.).

  • I've just trade my op⁸ pro, didn't like it too much, 1. Battery life sucks 2. The curved edges are too big which it's annoying when Reading, also gives a strange glow at the edges and I don't like that 3. Phone is getting hot and I mean really hot you can't can't call anymore. Positive things about the op⁸ pro are 1. Speed, the phone is really one of the fastest I've ever had 2. Camera is pretty good only no zoom lens that's really a missed opportunity, anyway the quality is awesome 3. Oxygen OS is maybe one of the best OS there is, love it. Now I've got the oppo find x2 pro, this is for me the best phone you can buy. It's way better than the op⁸ pro, I can't find disappointing stuff with this phone

  • Still waiting for the sale lol. This is like my 100th Video about the OP8 Pro. IP 68 rating and that 30W Wireless charging is a huge bonus for me. And being $500 less than the S20 Ultra, I'll choose the OP8 Pro any day. I'm not much into taking photos or shooting videos on my phone so i dont mind if the quality is not that great,one thing I've noticed about One Plus phones is that the longer you have them the better the camera qualities because of regular software updates. I've a OnePlus 7 and it's been a year that I've used the phone. When I first got the phone I was really disappointed with the camera quality but now it's really great. I was going to to buy the 7t pro but rumours about OP8 Pro coming with IP 68 rating and Wireless charging made me skipped the 7t series. I'm glad I did. Go team One Plus😃

  • It is funny how you speek and how you look for the smallest things, such as "red color intensity", which is absolutely a matter of taste and all other things you mentioned,you compare it all with Samsung and iPhone, which in the end means that they do not have these flaws and that they are perfect phones for money they ask for it !!!And that, not that it is not true, but it is absolutely untrue!! Both the iPhone pro max and Samsung ultra have catastrophic cameras for the money they ask for and that people pay for when they want the best of the best! And that is fact! I personally have all that phones in my hands and compare with many other good but significantly cheaper phones, not to mention them now, and I responsibly claim that neither iPhone nor Samsung have the best cameras! Their cameras are in some parts good in some even desperate! So I have a problem with the introductory part, where you state that the flaws that you think the OnePlus 8 pro has, if someone doesn't want those flaws on the phone, you know what to buy, Samsung or iPhone, who don't have those flaws ... and that again I repeat it is not true, they have flaws in the camera and they are not even minor flaws,they have flaws on other parts to,like any other phones. OnePlus does not lag behind in anything special compared to the iPhone 11 pro max and Samsung ultra, even in many ways it is better and the difference in price is not small, when you know that you will not get in every aspect bette phone, but a lot of things worse.

  • Well until Germany has full 5G support we will have multi-folding phones and flying cars while Elon enjoys his pina colada on mars. So thats not an issue at all Also camera is maybe not the best point&shoot but as a long term HTC user I am kinda used to that. However, in pro mode and some time available, this camera holds up to the very best. Imo only zoom is certainly an area it would lose out to P40 and S20U but that said...I basically never use this anyways more than 2-3x Its by far the most complete phone for the price tag. And even though 899 is still a lot of money, we have to say "thanks" to apple and samsung for raising the bar so dramaticaly that 899 can be considered "cheap"

I'm not downgrading from a Samsung Note 9 to a Pixel for the camera, so maybe this year I'll make the switch to iOS. Idk... I'll probably end up with the Note 20. Hopefully that camera fixes the issues the Ultra had. I'm really sick of phablets tho.
