OnePlus 7T Pro Review | Is This the Best Phone from OnePlus?

Sabin Tamang 28 Mar, 2020

The OnePlus 7T Pro is the latest and greatest flagship from OnePlus, packed with top-tier specs and a stylish design that builds on the OnePlus 7 Pro – making it a serious rival to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10 and the Pixel 4 at the top-end of the Android market. OnePlus has undeniably made its most impressive device yet with the 7T Pro, but if you’ve already bought the 7 Pro you won’t be missing out by not upgrading.

The big highlight of the OnePlus 7T Pro is its 90Hz 6.67-inch display, with no notch or cutout to get in the way of what you’re watching or playing on your phone. So, how good is OnePlus 7T Pro for the price of Rs. 91,999 for 8/256GB variant in Nepal. So, let's begin our full review.

Unboxing Experience

So, the OnePlus 7T Pro comes packed within a long red box. Inside, you’ll find OnePlus stickers, as well as a letter from the CEO welcoming you to the user community. Apart from that, you get Warp Charge 30T (30W) charging brick, Red OnePlus USB-A to USB-C cable, clear protective case, SIM ejecting tool and some paper works. There is no any type-c earphone also. What's not included in the bundle is a 3.5mm adapter, which should have been a must for a phone that doesn't have an audio jack. 

Design & Screen

The design of OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro is quite similar and it’s actually quite difficult to tell the 7T Pro apart from the 7 Pro, but that’s not an issue as that was a great-looking device. The back of the phone has a matte finish, and there’s only one color available called Haze Blue.  The 7T Pro is the typical modern-day dual-glass flagship, which uses premium materials as its flagship status demands. The screen is protected by a curved Gorilla Glass 6, while the back is shielded with a curved Gorilla Glass 5 with aluminum frame protection.

The device itself is quite large in order to facilitate that big display, and that may make it difficult to hold for those with smaller hands. It’s a comfortable device to have in your hand, though, thanks to the rounded edges of the rear and the matte finish.

It’s also important to note that the OnePlus 7T Pro doesn’t come with an IP water resistance rating.

The OnePlus 7T Pro packs the same screen as the 7 Pro. It is a 6.67" Fluid AMOLED with rounded corners and extended 1440p resolution with a 90 Hz refresh rate. It is a notch-free panel, protected by a Gorilla Glass 6on front and Gorilla Glass 5 on the back. The screen looks quite great as it is one of the best features of OnePlus 7T Pro as this phone has no notch, no in-display camera and has only screen on the front thanks to the pop-up camera. We found the maximum brightness on the display to be impressive, and overall everything we did on the device looked good.

There’s also a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display. This is easy to reach, and we found that it worked quickly and accurately throughout our testing period, is by far the easiest way to unlock the phone.


OnePlus has furnished the OnePlus 7T Pro with the latest and greatest chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 855 Plus. If you see the geekbench score of these phones, it beats phones like Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy Note 10, Google Pixel 4 XL, OnePlus 7 Pro etc.

The phone is only available with 256GB of onboard storage, with no option to expand this via SD card much like other OnePlus phones. The day to day usage was great and there was no any issue regarding the performance. It ran everything that I give. Played few games like PUBGM and COD Mobile and both games ran smoothly without any hiccups.

The OnePlus 7T Pro ships with Oxygen OS 10, based on Google’s new Android 10, and it’s brilliant. OnePlus is known for its excellent approach to smartphone software — taking vanilla Android and sprinkling in useful and helpful features that benefit the user. Fnatic gaming mode and Zen mode return, making for great gaming and well-being experiences, respectively.


OnePlus 7T features a triple camera setup on the back with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with f/1.6 aperture primary sensor with OIS and LaserAF. The other two sensors are 8MP with f/2.4 aperture, OIS and 3X zoom telephoto lens and Ultra-wide 16MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and 117-degree field-of-view.

OnePlus 7T Pro camera has an exemplary level of resolved detail, top-notch contrast, just the right sharpness, and very good dynamic range. In general, the OnePlus 7T Pro can take some good-looking shots, but it doesn’t have the best camera we’ve seen on a smartphone. The 16MP ultrawide pictures are among the better ones we've seen, with enough detail, low noise, and fitting quite much in the frame. Nightscape is available, and it allows even more light in the photos, and this the detail is improved, especially in the shadows.

The 16MP selfies taken with the pop-up camera are a bit softer than we'd have liked them but excel in contrast, colors, and dynamic range thanks to the Auto HDR.

The video camera supports up to 4K video at 60 fps, 1080p at up to 240 fps, and 720p at up to 960 fps. Overall the videos have good detail and sharp but the colors are over-sharpened and doesn’t look natural.

The 4085mAh battery in OnePlus 7T Pro performs admirably, matching the OnePlus 7 Pro and perhaps even exceeding it in some regards. We found it would comfortably last a whole day on a single charge, even with extensive usage. OnePlus says this phone charges 23% faster than previous OnePlus devices. OnePlus 7T Pro charger replenishes 60% of its depleted battery in 30 mins, while a full charge requires 69 minutes whereas OnePlus 7 Pro took around 85 minutes for a full charge.

Whats Good About OnePlus 7T Pro?


90Hz refresh rate is still just as impressive alongside the rapid animations.


Fastest phone with the use of latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+

Design and build

OnePlus now makes some of the best hardware, and the design is attractive without being too flashy.


The images are comfortably in the tier just below Google, Huawei, and Apple.

What's Not So Good About OnePlus 7T Pro?

Design, again

The Haze Blue color isn’t quite as classy as the Nebula Blue from the 7 Pro, and there’s no other visual difference. I’ve found the alert slider can be accidentally switched all too easily.


It’s a big chunk of a phone, and more unwieldy than the narrower 7T.


While Oxygen OS continues to be the best Android skin outside of Google’s Pixel software, there have been some inexcusable bugs and issues in the latest versions.

Missing features

It’s a flagship phone without flagship features such as wireless charging, an always-on display, or an IP rating. There’s also no 3.5mm headphone jack if anyone still cares.

Buying options

8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage should be fine for basically everyone, but there’s no choice anymore.

Final Verdict: Should You Buy OnePlus 7T Pro or Not?

The OnePlus 7T Pro won’t be as affordable as the OnePlus 7T, but knowing OnePlus’ normal pricing strategy you can expect this device to be cheaper than a lot of other top-end flagship devices. It won’t quite be a mid-range price, but it’ll certainly be more affordable than the best iPhone or Samsung Galaxy. So, if you are looking for a phone with a great display, good battery life and great performance then just buy OnePlus 7T Pro but if you are looking for the very best camera phone, wireless charging feature and IP rated smartphone then this is not the phone for you.
