OnePlus used to be the flagship killers in the mobile phone world. They shared similar features to their premier rivals with a difference in price that would make a Yorkshire-man cry. Since the OnePlus 7 – they’ve changed their course, abandoning mid-range phones to create the flagship phones that they previously sought to beat. With a increase in quality came the increase in costs.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is actually a little different. It’s cheap, okay, okay not “budget cheap” but compare it to other Pro and Plus rivals – the price tag will sway you towards it.
The OnePlus 10 Pro were launched globally in March 2022. Released within months of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus, Xiaomi 12 Pro and others it has significant advantages. The margin they undercut them by is certainly significant when you factor in the specs-race goes down to the wire.
How to start this category off. Well it’s certainly a power-punching phone, thanks to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip that lots of the top-end Android phones have launched with in 2022. Despite well-known issues with the chip, the 10 Pro has a cooling system that will in essence offet the issue. We streamed 2 films before the phone was noticeably hot.
The big screen can be a issue for people with smaller hands (we do not recommend giving this phone to a child). Corner reaching can be tricky but you do get more pixels to enjoy the content.
Camera wise the 10 Pro is okay. 48 megapixel main camera, 50 megapixel ultra-wide and 13 megapixel telephone lense do work in unison to create nice photos. The 10 Pro does struggle in certain areas compared to rivals.
One main issue is this: we’re in the UK, which is in Europe – we, like the rest of Europe and Asia get the 80 watt fast charging model, to our American cousins you get a misley 65 watt charging model. It’s a little different but there isn’t many other faster charging handsets available on the U.S. market. It will be down to the individual American to decide on whether or not he would like to trust Chinese manufacturing or listen to Former President Donald J. Trump.
Overall, the OnePlus 10 Pro is a good phone. Is it a market god phone? No, no it’s not. Can it compete with the likes of the iPhone 13 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus? It’s a close call. Would we recommend you get it? If you’re on a budget then yes, if not go for the competitors – they are fighting for the market.
