Is the OnePlus 7 Pro too big of a phone?

We've given the OnePlus 7 Pro a lot of praise here on AC lately, and rightfully so. It's the best phone OnePlus has released to-date, and not only that, is one of the best Android phones you can buy right now. Period.

There's a lot of good that comes with the OnePlus 7 Pro, but there's also one aspect of it that could be a turnoff for some users — its size.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is a big, honkin' slab of metal and glass, but looking through the AC forums, this doesn't appear to be that big of an issue.

I came from a one plus 6T, and before that a 2016 Moto z play. And for me neither the size nor the weight are a problem. My hands are average I guess, maybe slightly above average as I'm 6'2. But I can't grip a basketball or anything. Honestly I thought the comments about the size/weight issues were overblown. But it really is a subjective matter to begin with. I'd recommend going into a...

Depends on what you're used to. Weight and size wise its very similar to the XS max. Its thicker, taller, and heavier than the S10+. You get used to it, but its definitely on the big/heavy side.

I definitely noticed the extra weight as soon as I took it out of the box, but after a couple days of use, it feels just like any other phone I've had. I also have the S10+ and iPhone XS Max.

it is definitely big and heavy. I LOVE the size of the phone, and it is about the same weight as my Note9. however, the weight is jarring when I switch from my Pixel 3a XL to the OnePlus 7 Pro. that being said, once you use it for a little bit you don't notice the weight anymore.

  • I am famous
  • I do believe it is too big for me personally. The bigger issue is the lack of notification light or always on display though.
  • People said the same thing when the Nexus 6 came out, now everyone is making "phablets". I think it's just something people have to adjust to.
  • Not me it's unweildy, way too big. They had the perfect size with the 6 and 6T
  • You could still get the regular 7. Stereo speakers/UFS 3.0 storage. Both things many flagships that cost 899 like the p30 pro doesn't have. But to be honest you do get a much better camera on the p30 pro.
  • Yes. It is
  • I'm moving away from huge phones. Compact is the way to go for me.
  • Have a OnePlus 6t and am friendly with the T-Mobile reps as there's a store in the plaza I work at. The reps told me I should hang on to my 6t. He specifically mentioned it being too heavy as one of the reasons why
  • I got the 7pro but iv been wanting a small light phone for years. I dont know why but i keep getting big phones. Had the lg flex, v10, note8 and now the 7pro. Still like the 7pro though.
  • I Iike the size of my new OP7pro, but I'm old and need reading glasses. I've found I can use it one handed inist circumstances. The display is beautiful and great for gaming.
  • OP - despite 88% wanting the jack in a twitter poll, we removed it anyway to make more space for a bigger battery. The OP7pro is huge, but we're still going to remove it for a bigger battery. Asus Zenfone 6 - Huh?
  • It all depends on the user, although getting used to a large dense phone makes it weird when you pick up something light. I have an old iPhone 6 I keep around, and it feels like an empty toy compared to something denser like the U12 Plus. One thing I do find amusing is all these tall phones with mostly empty screens. But, it's good for media consumption... unless there's a hole in the screen or some other defect ;)
