TOP 10 REVIEWER
9 June 2019
 Is One Plus 7 the ultimate flagship killer, maybe yes till August or 2019 end.
Is it worth to buy One Plus 7 now, YES it’s a steal deal price for people who want pure performance, latest resource, and decent camera an affordable rate.
Below is my observation on One Plus 7 compared to devices like One Plus 7, One Plus 7 PRO and Oppo Reno 10x which are priced very similar. I have bought this One Plus 7 and also booked the Oppo Reno 10x. Let’s see how One Plus 7 fares in the market competition.

CAMERA - FRONT
==============
👍  16MP f/2.0 25mm wide - camera is very good not excellent though.
👎🏻  No popup and is a water drop design on the display

CAMERA - BACK
=============
🆗  Dual camera setup, but secondary camera is only a depth sensor with 5MP. Cannot use this second camera separately.
👍  Primary camera is 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, with f/1.7 aperture, has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), and PDAF.
🆗  Slow-mo: 4K at 60fps, 1080p video at 240fps, 720p video at 480fps. Not the greatest but still not bad at all.
👎🏻  No optical zoom telephoto or ulta wide angle camera

>> Use 'Gcam' for better photo than the stock Camera app. It drastically improves the software post processing.

DISPLAY
=======
👍  6.41” size, 19.5:9 ratio
👍  Optic AMOLED
👍  Full HD+ 1080x2340 ~402ppi
👍  Refresh rate of 60Hz
👎🏻  Water drop Notch

BATTERY & CHARGING
===================
🆗  3700 mAh Li-Po batter, Lasts for 5 hours on-screen time on heavy usage with videos, gaming and mobile data with sync.
🆗  Fast charging 20W

PROTECTION
===========
👍  Corning Gorilla Glass 6 – Front
👍   Corning Gorilla Glass 5 – Back
🆗  No IP rating but is supposed to have a coating that is water resistant. Warranty not covered due to liquid damage.

MODEM & NETWORK
==================
🆗  Has Cat16 1024/150Mbps modem, same as 6T
👍  Has all Indian Bands covered with dual VoLTE. No direct Video calling available, might come back as update.

PROCESSOR, GPU, STORAGE & RAM

👍  Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, 7nm chipset, Octa-core (1x2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3x2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 485)
👍  Adreno 640
👍  128GB with the 6GB RAM variant and 256GB with the 8GB RAM variant with UFS 3.0
👎🏻  No expandable storage – no SD card support but 128GB should be enough for most

ANDROID VERSION, OS & BLOATWARE
===============================
👍  Oxygen OS 9 on top of Android 9.0 (Pie)
👍  No bloatware

OTHER FEATURES

OVERALL - WORTHY BUY
========  :::::::::::::::::::::
👌🏼   A great phone for pure performance in terms of Processing.
👌🏼   Absolute buy for anyone who is looking to into Gaming, Multiprocessing and applications that requires large resources like video editing on the go.
👉  Decent camera but not a great one for now, hope updates will improve. Use gcam for better photos. So if camera is your primary requirement along with SD855 processor go with Oppo Reno 10x which has triple camera and 10x hybrid zoom.
👉  If display is the most important with SD855 processor go with One Plus 7 PRO.
 
Ø In my perspective I loved the curved 2K display of One Plus 7 but that 90Hz (can be reduced to 60Hz) and 2K display is draining the battery faster and on-screen time is less than 4 hrs for high usage.
Ø Better than Oppo Reno SD710 model which is at the same price. The Oppo Reno 10x 8GB RAM variant seems to be a better option, BUT only when you pre-book it with the offers and exchange. With Pre-booking you can get additional discount of 5K+old phone price, 10% (min Rs.4500) HDFC instance discount bringing the phone down to around Rs.40000. At this price you can get a bigger battery, higher RAM and storage, great telephoto lens with 10x hybrid zoom, a good ulta-wide camera and the flagship Sony IMX586 48MP camera which a great post-picture software processing and a Ultra Night Mode 2.0 for low light photography which is next to Huawei P30 PRO, but you won't get UFS3.0 storage which is not a big deal.
Ø With even more money to spend the Samsung S10 PLUS version would be very good option than One Plus 7 PRO or Oppo Reno10x. And with surplus money the Huawei P30 pro (but no android or Google app updates after 3 months due to US restrictions on Huawei) for ultimate camera performance.

Certainly One Plus 7 will be the best selling product of the year and totally worth for the price, and thanks for Amazon for the quick delivery and getting exclusive.
 
❓   So is this the ultimate Flagship Killer? Maybe yes for now, but maybe not until Xiaomi’s Redmi K20 PRO releases by mid-July. But Xiaomi usually has a lot of bloatware and advertisements in app. We need to wait and see the comparison for the flagship killer awards. (Poco F2 that will be released soon will not use the SD855).
