OnePlus 8 Pro Review

Oneplus 8 Pro

Speed has been something of One plus’s signature, and they hold that trait to it. At the same time, several other manufacturers have joined and also offer the screens with faster image updating and sharp performance in general. In Oneplus 8 Pro, One plus has, in turn, tapped into its competitors by introducing wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and water resistance with IP68 certification, thus making the phones more like its competitors.

However, these new features for Oneplus are properties most others have had for a long time. At the same time, Oneplus’s position as the one that delivers fast performance at a slightly lower price has been challenged, when Oneplus itself added more prestige features and, for example, invested extra on the screen while also raising its rates.

Oneplus eight Pro is now available globally, whereas, for the price, OnePlus 8 Pro price in Australia ranges from 1150 to 1200 AUD. Having such a fantastic feature at such a price is reasonable. So let’s see what, if anything, unique that Oneplus 8 Pro has to offer.

On the camera front, Oneplus has made a slightly different priority. The Oneplus 8 pro has four cameras, and it is a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel zoom telephoto lens, and a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle. In addition to these three, a color filter lens has been inserted, and it means that when you take a picture of a pot plant at home, for example, when you get a near-black-and-white position where the plant stands out in its color.

In addition to this, there are several different modes in the camera app that take advantage of the hardware in different ways. We have a macro mode where you can take close-ups at as close as 3 centimeters from the subject. In the case of video, we also find a special mode for 21: 9 format, which cinemas use, but you can also film in regular 4K if you want. There is another camera module that can see through some plastic and clothes, which is the main reason for the popularity of the OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone.

A controversial X-ray camera

As we have already told you above that the OnePlus 8 Pro can see-through plastic, glass, and clothing. This ability is possible thanks to an additional fun “color filter camera,” which processes infrared light in addition to visible wavelengths. With the help of some post-processing, she creates fantastic and bizarre false-color images.

But that’s not all. Infrared light is fundamentally electromagnetic radiation capable of penetrating certain materials that other light waves cannot comprehend. In other words, it can grasp certain elements such as fabric and glass.

But the “X-ray vision” of the OnePlus 8 Pro itself was controversial, and users of the new flagship began to check out what can be seen inside the camera. It seems that the most active users have started obscenely using this feature because the color sensor can penetrate certain types of tissue. This has been viewed by many as a severe threat to confidentiality and privacy.

The company has estimated that many people around the world could abuse the OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera ability to see through certain objects. In particular, for example, many people could look through other people’s clothes and display such photos in public view. This is why the decision was made to deactivate the “X-ray vision” of the OnePlus 8 Pro. Within a week, OnePlus will launch an update for the flagship, which will disable the photochromic filter.


Oneplus, even though several other manufacturers have the same refresh rate on the screen, claim that their phone is still faster. We also heard about this on previous Oneplus mobiles, and the explanation is that over the sheer speed of the screen as such, they worked hard to adapt the software to filter out milliseconds after milliseconds from standard applications purely visually. I already thought in the Oneplus 7T Pro, the predecessor of this phone, that the interface felt very fast, and I think the interface feels fast here too, now in the Oneplus 8 Pro.

Both custom animations and feedback in the form of vibrations help to make the phone feel fast. However, it is not just about perceived performance, but there is also plenty of raw strength under the shell. For example, Oneplus 8 Pro is the Android that shows the best results in benchmark tests, the best of all the androids smartphones.

Wireless Charging

Wireless charging is a novelty in the Oneplus context. For a long time, they have argued that technology is not good enough, but now the sound is different. The wireless charging in Oneplus 8 Pro together with Oneplus’s wireless chargers, which are sold separately. It is swift, and the only downside is that it also has a powerful fan, so the sound is noticeable as soon as you charge the phone.

If you charge the phone next to the bed, but at night the charge goes into night mode and is silent, so as not to interfere. In the first five minutes, it usually charges (when not in night mode) from zero to 10 percent, and after half an hour, the battery is charged to 50 percent. Charging fully takes about 75 minutes. The included corded charger is, of course, fast.

When it comes to wireless charging, Oneplus 8 Pro also has reverse support so you can charge another device like a phone or a pair of headphones with the backing for it from the back of the phone. However, some devices with wireless charging support, in addition to the Oneplus 8 pro, do not have Oneplus themselves at the time of writing.


There is no doubt about the popularity and success of this phone, OnePlus 8 Pro comes with some exceptional features, and one of them was the X-ray camera. Many people around the world have already purchased this smartphone and have tested the X-ray camera. Some of them can also see under the clothes, which makes the manufacturers think about privacy, so they decided to disable this feature by introducing an update to disable the x-ray camera filter. Later on, they also announced that the update was an accident. Well, who knows it was an accident or not, but they have saved people from letting their privacy abuse.
