Ever since it debuted with the OnePlus One in 2014, OnePlus's mission in this industry has been to create flagship smartphones without flagship pricing. OnePlus phones get better and better with each year that passes, but this also always results in a price hike of around $20.

This year, things are a little different. The OnePlus 7 Pro is obviously the most powerful and striking phone OnePlus has put out to date, but it costs nearly $100 more than last year's OnePlus 6T.

First thing's first, make sure to check out our full review of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

If you want a premium Android phone for around $700, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the best option out there by a long shot. The price is a lot more expensive this year, but OnePlus really justifies it thanks to a downright stunning design, incredible display, improved fingerprint sensor, and so much more.

The phone does stumble a bit with its bulky nature and subpar wide-angle and telephoto cameras, but overall, this is a fantastic user experience that we think you'll really, really like.

Every year without skipping a beat, OnePlus outfits its phones with the latest and greatest specs it can get its hands on. That's no different with the OnePlus 7 Pro.

OnePlus 7 Pro Specifications

How does it compare to other flagships?

As great as the OnePlus 7 Pro has proven to be, it's far from existing in a bubble. There are plenty of other phones out there eager to challenge it, so we've done the hard work of putting it head-to-head with some of its stiffest competition.

The Galaxy S10 and Pixel 3 are the obvious comparisons for the OnePlus 7 Pro, especially considering its higher price. However, the phone that might give it the biggest run for its money is the $400 Pixel 3a and its truly phenomenal camera.

Here are all of our latest comparisons:

Should you upgrade to the OnePlus 7 Pro from an older OnePlus phone?

The OnePlus 7 Pro is going up against a lot of great handsets from other manufacturers, but it's also got a lot to live up to thanks to the great legacies of its predecessors.

OnePlus consistently makes great phones year after year, meaning if you already have an existing OnePlus handset, you might be unsure if the 7 Pro is worth upgrading to.

Here's some advice to help you make the best decision.

The display is almost completely bezel-less

As you can see from the picture above, the display on the OnePlus 7 Pro is quite impressive. It measures in at 6.67-inches and uses a vibrant AMOLED display. OnePlus phones typically use a 1080 Full HD resolution, but on the 7 Pro, OnePlus stepped things up to a crispy 3120 x 1440.

Surrounding that display is...hardly anything. Save for a teeny tiny chin at the bottom, there are virtually no bezels at all on this phone. There isn't even a notch!

Something you can't see in this picture, but perhaps even more impressive, is the 90Hz refresh rate. Most phone screens have a refresh rate of 60Hz, meaning that everything on the OnePlus 7 Pro moves faster and more fluid than just about anything else.

OnePlus 7 Pro fingerprint sensor problems? Here's how to fix it

Hold on a second. If the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn't have any bezels or a notch, where did the front-facing camera go?

It pops up out of the top frame. It does this using a motorized system, and while that does sound like a super fragile component waiting to break at any moment, OnePlus has reassured us that it designed this system to be incredibly durable.

In fact, if you have the selfie camera out and accidentally drop the 7 Pro, the camera will retract itself back inside the phone's body to keep itself safe. That's pretty cool.

You'll find three rear cameras

Speaking of cameras, you'll find three of them on the back of the OnePlus 7 Pro. Here's what they consist of:

  • Main camera: 16MP | f/1.6 aperture | OIS | EIS
  • Telephoto camera: 8MP | f/2.4 aperture | 3x zoom | OIS
  • Ultra-wide angle camera: 16MP | f/2.2 aperture | 117° field of view

This is the first OnePlus phone to use three rear cameras, allowing for a lot of flexibility with the kinds of pictures you can capture.

OnePlus 7 Pro camera update improvements are real, but they're not spectacular

OnePlus created three beautiful colors

The overall design of the OnePlus 7 Pro is impressive enough on its own, but OnePlus takes it a step further with three gorgeous colors.

Nebula Blue and Mirror Gray were available right at launch, and on June 11, OnePlus released its stunning Almond colorway.

There's also a regular OnePlus 7 in some markets

While the OnePlus 7 Pro is the only phone that's being released in the United States and Canada, there's actually a second phone that's available in other countries — the regular OnePlus 7.

The non-Pro OnePlus 7 is essentially a repackaging of last year's OnePlus 6T with some of the 7 Pro's new specs. There's no pop-up selfie camera, the display has a waterdrop notch, and there are two rear cameras instead of three.

Internally, you'll find the Snapdragon 855, 6 or 6GB of RAM, 128 or 256GB of the new UFS 3.0 storage, and a 3,700 mAh battery. It's an odd mishmash of the 6T and 7 Pro, but price-wise, it's considerablly cheaper.

In the UK, the OnePlus 7 starts at just £499 compared to the 7 Pro's £649 starting price in the country.

You need to get a case for this phone

If you plan on getting the OnePlus 7 Pro, getting a case for it is a necessity. The phone is incredibly slippery and sometimes difficult to hold, but thankfully, there are already a lot of great cases to choose from.

Once you get a case or two picked out, you'll want to also check out some accessories to take your experience to the next level.

You can buy it now

If you're interested, the OnePlus 7 Pro is available for purchase right now — unlocked through OnePlus's website or through T-Mobile if you're in the U.S. There are three different models to choose from, including:

  • 6GB RAM + 128GB storage — $669
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB storage — $699
  • 12GB RAM + 256GB storage — $749

A $30 price difference between the first two models is really good considering that you get 2GB of extra RAM and double your storage. In fact, it might be a little too good. If you ask us, everyone should probably consider the $700 OnePlus 7 Pro as the "base" model and just ignore the first option entirely.
