OnePlus 8

OnePlus 8 Summary

The OnePlus 8 is the spiritual successor of the OnePlus 7 and will go on to eventually replace the OnePlus 7T. Build quality is excellent thanks to the curved-edge front and back glass sandwiching the metal frame. The buttons are easy to reach, and the alert slider is handy as always.

The OnePlus 8 has a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel with sloping sides, a wide colour gamut, and a hole-punch cutout in the upper left corner. The 90Hz refresh rate makes usage in general feel fluid and snappy. It also has an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is super quick at authentication. All it takes is a quick, firm tap to unlock it.

We reviewed the top-end variant of the OnePlus 8, which has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, priced at USD $699. Gaming performance is top-notch. Fortnite can run at 90fps and the experience is good. Games and movies are especially enjoyable thanks to the very good stereo speakers on the OnePlus 8. OxygenOS is also well equipped with lots of shortcuts and gestures waiting to be discovered. The new launcher now offers a more seamless multitasking experience, there’s 5GB of free cloud storage for backups once you sign in with a OnePlus account, a built-in screen recorder, and dynamic wallpapers.

The OnePlus 8 has the same 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with optical stabilisation as the 7T. In daylight, it captures detailed images with vivid colours and balanced HDR. The wide-angle camera is also useful. The third macro camera doesn’t have good clarity but it can be useful in some instances. The selfie camera was decent under good light but didn’t do well in low light.
