Oneplus 7 pro : Flagship or Flagship Killer?

Hello everyone,

Recently Oneplus have unveiled two new devices viz the Oneplus7 and the Oneplus 7 pro. But, interestingly Oneplus7 is not going to be sold in the USA. Why are they up to this scheme? Well, as there are two sides of a coin Oneplus basically aims to achieve two things.

  1. They are adopting a new business model as the mid-range phone segment is flooded wit phones out there and hence they basically are now trying to enter into the flagship market where the big giant's Apple and Samsung have already acquired their markets.

The only reason that they are allowing the Oneplus 7 in India and other Asian countries as their almost 70% of the margin comes from here and since they have always reclaimed their flagship killers trademark they are aiming to continue that. (The detailed review for Oneplus 7 will is going to be in the upcoming articles this week)

Oneplus 7 pro has no doubt been their best device that they have unveiled so far but still it lacks the right formula to be a flagship.

  • Camera performance is great but the quality of image reproduced isn't that great. Also, it suffers from color reproduction.

  • The front camera does not shoot 4k videos.

  • The company claims that the device is splash proof but in order to keep the price low they didn't certify it. So you have to be careful before dripping your phone in water.
