OnePlus 8 Pro review: fabulous but not flawless

The price of OnePlus flagships has risen in the past few years. While the phones got better with time, they lacked mainly two features – IP rating and wireless charging. With the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company has gone all-out with its offering. It finally offers the two missing features but doesn’t build upon the existing ones. When I first received the phone almost three weeks back, my expectations were high. I expected it to offer smooth performance, a decent set of cameras, a good display, and a fast-charging battery. Now, after using the phone, I can say that I was amazed by some features while the others left me wanting more. Here’s why the OnePlus 8 Pro is a fabulous phone but not a flawless one.


If you have used a high-end OnePlus phone in the recent past, the OnePlus 8 Pro is likely to feel familiar to you. It features a curved display at the front, which has a punch-hole notch located at the top left corner. On the rear lies a quad-camera setup. Three of the lenses are housed in a vertical pill-shaped module and the fourth one is located adjacent to the module above the AF module. The camera module does protrude a bit from the phone but it is not something I’d worry about.

It comes in three color options – Glacial Green, Ultramarine Blue and Onyx Black. We received the first one, and it is my personal favorite. It changes from green to blue based on the ambient light. It is classy, to say the least. Moreover, it is rated IP68 water and dust-resistance.

The rear panel is a bit curved and the corners are rounded, which adds to the gripping experience of the phone. It is made out of glass but it sports a frosted matte finish, and thanks to that, it doesn’t attract fingerprints. The phone is easily one of the best I’ve used without a cover. Still, I slapped on the in-box silicone case just to be sure. After all, I’m a clumsy man. There is an added refreshment of the case too. It has “Never Settle” imprinted on it in large font. Overall, the phone is easy to grip, with or without the case.
