The OnePlus 8 Pro is the first OnePlus phone with wireless charging. It has 5G, a 120Hz refresh rate on the display, and it's super fast. It's the phone designed to take on the Samsung Galaxy S20, and it more than holds its own. Just a little more work on the camera and it's there.

The display is ok. Too much discoloration on the sides for those that notice those details, and which is normal on these types of screens. The McLaren 7T screen is the best one they've produced.

As a iphone user for years Is this phone worth giving up apple? Oneplus gives $100 off with coupon code. And $150 off accessories and also throwing in free pair of oneplus buds worth $79 Had this in my cart yesterday over $300+ discount.

Ok .. IP 68 is useful But wireless charge is a waste of money to me .. they can give wired 65W instead of it and keep 100 dollars low price

OnePlus phones have dual sim even in North America, I don't know any other major brand that has this except Apple, in North America.

Surprising result. Not really a fan of the 8.5 score, which is the same as you gave the Samsung S20. You don't comment about how Samsung doesn't offer 120Hz at full resolution. Not much about Oxygen OS (even though it's generally regarded as much better than all other Android flavors). Not much about how it's cheaper than Samsung's offering. Not seeing how it's getting the same rating as the S20.

This seems great. I have the 7pro, and it's a great phone. I've had some issues with having to restart my phone to get 4G coverage back. Also, I've given up hoping that producers of i.e gimbals will ever make their products work 100% on these brands, I just don't think they care about others than apple and Samsung.

5G is more future proofing than anything 12 GB ram is more future proofing than anything Is too expensive for what it is IMO. 7 Pro or 7T are better buys, features vs price IMO. Even base 8 is better than 7T Pro MacLarenn given newer chip.

Might just be me, I am still rocking my 5T, never cared about the camera. Like yeah, it is okay, and night mode on the 5T is pretty sad; but I don't take lots of photos. I love its performance, constant updates, and the near stock experience Oxygen provides. Like OnePlus is always a solid buy. My next phone might be an iPhone, depending on what Apple shows, just because I've never been in that ecosystem and I kinda want to give it a shot.

There’s only one reason that makes me go for the S20+ over the OnePlus 8 pro. As a zwift and Garmin user, the OnePlus doesn’t have Ant+ connectivity. Not a big deal for most people, but Ant+ is just a more robust protocol when connecting to multiple sensors like speed, cadence, power meters, heart rate transmitters and so on. Would love to see ant+ in more devices.
