    The OnePlus 7 Pro brings a massive 90Hz display, three rear cameras, and more at a price that's a bit unexpected for the company. Is it as good a value as the OnePlus 6T?

              You can toggle between the 90hz to 60hz screen refresh rate. You can also toggle between QHD and FHD resolution. You can switch to these options if you want better battery life.

                          Wireless charging is honestly useless to me. 30 watt warp charging is way more useful.

                              How is it that everyone on youtube is talking about not that great battery life while I am hitting 9+h screen on time per charge? Right now writing this I have 9h32m screen on and 10% left with zero gaming and all usage being youtube, netflix and messenger. I had about 4h screen on time when I was trying PUBG mobile for almost 3h and rest being video watching - but gaming and downloading big stuff via 4g is always draining phones fast. Ofc my screen is always on 90hz and max res, brightnes usualy slightly above mid level...

                                If you like battery that much why don't you put your phone in dumb mode I'm sure it will last you like 3 weeks! 😋

                                  I love this phone especially the notchless, holeless screen. The only thing that's missing is *wireless charging.* Though I bought a *USB-C wireless charging pad* from Amazon and slapped on a case, and now I'm loving it even more!

                                    reviewers: oneplus still using a 1080p screen in 2018 its time to move up
                                    Oneplus upgrades screen
                                    reviewers: i wish they had stayed with the 1080p screen id rather have battery life

                                      It's not wireless charging, the docking station still needs a damn wire in it. SMH. I'd rather take that wire stick it directly into the phone and get warp charging that's five times as fast than stupid wireless charging.

                                        To me, it seems more like 10 times faster. I love my OnePlus 7 Pro.

                                      Does this guy know you can change the refresh rate to match his needs lol...Change it to 60 and bump the resolution to auto for supported content and boom you got all day battery life lol

                                          Does anyone know why my phone keeps rotating when I'm trying to watch stuff on my 7pro? It rotates then turn to a small square. It's so annoying.

                                            give this thing a headphone jack, and remove the tiny chin it has, and the phone is perfect.

                                              Love my Galaxy S9+. But I gotta give this 1+ 7Pro a look. I like the overall design of this phone.

                                                How is a headphone jack indicative of the term pro? Wired headphones are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Wireless charging I get, but not a headphone jack.

                                                      This looks like a great phone and might get it but the only thing holding be back is the lack of an sd card slot just like the pixel. I have a lot of files that I like to keep on my phone and hate going over 50% of storage usage on a phone.

                                                        All you have to do is go to settings and change the refresh rate from 90 to 60hz. You should have mentioned that was possible

                                                                I have my OnePlus 7Pro for 6 days now. Of course it's beautiful looking and yes the screen is gorgeous in every way but man it's both huge and heavy. It's really wide so reaching over to the letter "a" one handed is a strain. I can't comfortably walk my dogs with one hand and type. It's very slippery and top heavy so it will easily fall out of my hand if I'm not careful. It comes with a great case but that makes it even thicker to hold. I've had an S8 for two years so I'm used to slippery, curved phones but this one being heavy makes me worry it will topple out of one hand easily. I almost never take selfies in my life so I'm delighted the cam is hidden away from my ugly mug and the first day I got the phone it came half charged. I charged it once and lasted from Friday through to Sunday lunch time for me. I'm not a heavy phone user but that's far more than I ever got out of my S8.
