Oneplus 8 Review – Better Oneplus 7T!

It was a time when Oneplus was a flagship killer and now it has itself become a flagship company offering high-end specs and devices at a high cost. The all-new Oneplus 8 series is here and here we will be discussing the Oneplus 8!

The Oneplus 8 offers a great display with a superfast chipset and 5G. Let’s discuss each of the things briefly here. The Oneplus is famous for its flagship killer tag and pricing but to attain speed it became costlier.

Oneplus 8 price in India starts at 41,999 for 6GB+128GB, 44,999 for 8GB+128GB and 49,999 for 12GB+256GB.

Display

The OnePlus 8 packs a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with an FHD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Its 20:9 ratio dictates a relatively tall and narrow handset, which has become more popular in phones these days. They are really very easy to hold and the display is very bright and good at outdoor use color are good. And also, it has got the A+ rating for display from display mate. The display has a 90Hz refresh rate which is less than those of S20’s and Oneplus 8 Pro but I think 90Hz is a good spot for now in terms of refresh rate. The refresh rate will help many games that support a high refresh rate.

Camera

The OnePlus 8 has a 48-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The main camera uses a Sony IMX586 sensor, the same one as in the OnePlus 7 Pro. While there is no dedicated zoom camera, the OnePlus 8 simulates 2x zoom by capturing a 48-megapixel image and cropping 12 megapixels out of the middle. There is also a 16-megapixel front-facing camera.

Good camera performance in bright light is essentially a given for premium smartphones. The camera loses the zoom feature like those of S20 ultra. When you zoom you see the difference as you start to lose details the deeper you go. Also, it takes less light as compared to the Oneplus 8 Pro because of the sensor. The 2MP macro camera this is waste I don’t know who asks for it in the premium category or in the budget category also makes no sense at all. But here the story is no different it is not so good instead a telephoto would have been better.

Also, there is Gcam support which will enhance the experience of photography and detailing.

Performance

Like most Android flagships in 2020, the OnePlus 8 ships with the Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is faster than last year’s 855+ chip, more power-efficient and supports 5G. Like its elder brother Oneplus 8 Pro, it also boasts power tops the charts and provides such a smooth gaming and heavy usage this device is an overall best for everything you name it and is the performer of a really long time. And also, the device is 5G which makes is the cheapest 5G flagship device.

Battery

Oneplus 8 has 4,300mAh of the battery as compared to 3,800mAh of Oneplus 7T. The device is lighter despite an increase in capacity. The device will last a day usage under both refresh rate and also it has a 30W fast charging which will help you charge super-fast If running out of juice. The battery improvement is a major thing in both Oneplus 8 devices. Oneplus 8 battery is better and will last a day.

Overall Verdict

The Oneplus 8 has major things that you will make you choose this device over the Oneplus 7T i.e. Bigger Battery, Bigger and better display and 5G. Although 5G should not be considered as it will take time to come in India, we are not even getting the 4G speeds correctly so keep this thing in mind. It is a faster device and is very good for gaming and performs better than the S20 series and also has Oxygen OS which is everyone’s favorite. It goes against iPhone 11, S20 which has better cameras than this. Also, this is much cheaper. So if you are planning to go for a new Oneplus and are short of a budget than the Oneplus 7T is a better option but if you can spend more than Oneplus 8 is a great choice also those who want a better camera should go for Oneplus 8 Pro or the iPhone 11.
