Reviews for the OnePlus 8

88.2% OnePlus 8 in Review: Great smartphone even in the non-pro version | Notebookcheck
With the OnePlus 8, another good, affordable 5G smartphone has entered the market. While the coverage is still fairly limited, there are many good reasons for purchasing this smartphone. In our review, we will go into what those reasons are.
8 Reasons to still get a OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro
Source: G Style Magazine English
Both devices will give you a great experience with Android and also a lot of bang for your buck. While these only came out six months ago OnePlus is really to unveil its next the device the “8T”. I imagine when that releases you may see a price drop in these two models so keep an eye out.

The OnePlus 8, unfortunately, follows the recent trend of the smartphone industry when it comes to having higher prices. It was released last April 14, 2020 with the base model starting with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Going a step higher, users can get the version that comes packed with 12GB of ram and 256GB of storage.

Of the two flagship phones OnePlus announced in April, the OnePlus 8 isn't just more affordable than the OnePlus 8 Pro, it's also the phone I prefer. At $699 (£599) for 128GB of storage and $799 (£699) for 256GB, the OnePlus 8 is available to buy in the US at T-Mobile and, for the first time ever, Verizon; and it will work on other carriers (OnePlus and Amazon will sell it unlocked, as well). Note that Verizon is selling it at a higher price of $799 (128GB). (The newer OnePlus Nord is an even cheaper option, but it's not available in the US.)

The OnePlus 8 sets the bar high for affordable flagships in 2020. While its design refinements borrow elements from other flagships, it's an undeniably sleek phone, with waterfall display edges and a punch-hole for the front-facing camera. With a Snapdragon 865 and up to 12GB of RAM, the phone is high-performance despite costing notably less than most flagships, making it the cheapest 5G phone in many markets.

OnePlus 8 Audio review
Source: DxOMark English
The OnePlus 8 does an above-average job of handling audio compared to the devices we’ve tested. In particular, its recording performance is well above that of the 8 Pro and the Galaxy S20+, the two phones we most closely compared it with. Its wide sound stage is helpful for providing immersive audio experiences. Overall it performs comparably to other value-priced flagship phones, although it isn’t in our top bracket of audio performers.

80% OnePlus 8 review: You get more than what you pay for
Source: India Today English
OnePlus 8 is a phone worth buying. Like totally. Except the camera performance, which is not as good as that of the OnePlus 8 Pro, I don’t find the OnePlus 8 in any significant way inferior to the OnePlus 8 Pro. And OnePlus 8 Pro retails for Rs 54,999. In terms of performance, software, design, battery life the OnePlus 8 is as good as any other phone, including some more expensive phones. I wish OnePlus, instead of putting three rear cameras in the OnePlus 8, had done what Apple had done with the iPhone SE and had put one but top class camera into the OnePlus 8. That would have made the OnePlus 8 a complete phone for lot of consumers. But even without that, I don’t hesitate to recommend OnePlus 8 to anyone looking to get a phone for less than Rs 45,000. At its price, the OnePlus 8 is a superb and reliable phone.

80% Oneplus 8 Review: A Good Phone That Dents Your Bank Balance A Bit More Than It Should
Source: Tech2.in.com English
It wouldn’t be a bad idea for the brand to rethink the OnePlus 8’s pricing here, though it's supposed to be cheaper in India already, compared to other markets. That is unless they want to drive potential buyers towards the OnePlus 8 Pro, which actually offers more premium features in the 50K+ budget. To sum it up, the OnePlus 8 is undoubtedly a good phone, but not necessarily the best value for money option at its current selling price.

Starting at Rs 41,999, the OnePlus 8 is one of the expensive smartphones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. But it lives up to the price tag, thanks to the user experience it delivers with its hardware-software synergy. Imaging has always been a weak area for OnePlus smartphones. The OnePlus 8 plugs some of the holes, though not all. The cameras are not bad, but there are other smartphones in the same segment that do better in imaging.

The short answer would be — yes, absolutely. At the start, I felt that the OnePlus 8 was a bit overpriced for what it offers, and that sentiment still stands after reviewing it. It's not a massive upgrade over the 7T like I hoped, but perhaps OnePlus is saving some big upgrades for the 8T, which should be due sometime later this year.

At RM2899 for the base model, and considering the options out there, recommending the OnePlus 8 can be a little difficult. Frankly speaking, using the phone reminded me a lot of the OnePlus 7 Pro I reviewed last year. It feels just as a high-end, premium smartphone should, but therein lies a problem; it’s a phone that seems to play it safe and because of that, it does feel somewhat lacking in excitement.

Colour quirks aside, the OnePlus 8 is a fantastic flagship smartphone at an amazing price. You rarely get this quality level of design, features and performance at such good value. When the biggest let down is that the main camera can do a better job of close-ups than the macro lens, you know you have an excellent phone. The main thing is whether the Pro is enough to tempt you to splash out.

So this time around, it's hard to say for sure whether the OnePlus 8 is worth your money. As you can see, it depends on the market, and it depends on what you are after. But putting the software aside, in markets outside of China and India, there might be more sensible options for the price. Better yet, if 5G isn't on top of your list of priorities, getting your hands on a 7T or 7T Pro still hanging on a shelf somewhere might be the best way to go. And if going up the price ladder is an option, 8 Pro or any other flagship for the price will serve you better in the long run.

OnePlus 8 Series | Cheaper in India, Pricier in the United States
Source: Exhibit.tech English
OnePlus 8 Pro price in India has been revealed, alongside the prices for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z headphones. OnePlus on Sunday announced the pricing for all of its new products, just days after their introduction. The exact sale dates for each of the products is still unclear and OnePlus has just said that these will go on sale next month. The OnePlus 8 series prices in India are much lower than the prices of the two smartphones in the US. What’s also worth noting is that the company has launched a brand new variant of the OnePlus 8 in India – the 6GB + 128GB – that hasn’t been unveiled globally. Read on for more details on OnePlus 8 series price in India and sale details.

In other respects, outside a bit of curved glass here, a new processor there, the OnePlus 8 doesn’t seem a big improvement over the OnePlus 7T. But when 5G phones current as effective wallet-drainers as Western Union email scams, we’re going to chalk this one up as a win.

OnePlus 8 Review: This Phone Stays Winning
Source: Droid Life English
My gut instinct is just telling me to tell you to buy this phone. It starts at $699 and has a ton of great features. If it weren’t for an ever-so-slightly inconsistent camera, I’d already be calling it POTY (phone of the year). However, it’s only April, so for now, I will restrain myself and just say that the OnePlus 8 is easily POTY material.

OnePlus 8 Review: Dying A Hero
Source: MrMobile English
OnePlus is a smartphone maker with a cool story. It started out by appealing to buyers who were price-conscious, yes, but more importantly: phone geeks. So OnePlus phones have always been fast and buffed up by a few cherry-picked features that actually make them more useful. At the same time, OnePlus has mostly resisted adding extraneous bloatware that doesn’t improve the experience. The result has been years of products that I could recommend not just to fellow nerds, but to normal people who just wanted a really solid phone at a fair price. The OnePlus 8 doesn’t betray that legacy, but it also doesn’t do much to push it forward. For that you need to look to the OnePlus 8 Pro, but then you’re jumping to a $900 phone. The OnePlus 8 here? A buck under $700. That's more in line with the company's traditional year-over-year price hikes, but it's still more expensive than ever. With competition like the Pixel 3a selling for less than half the price, does the OnePlus 8 stand a chance even though it's about to be on more shelves than ever? Find out in my OnePlus 8 Review!

OnePlus 8 announcement in under 10 minutes
Source: Engadget English
Alright, we're only 2 seconds under, but there's a lot of news here. OnePlus announced the 8 and the 8 Pro, with the pro version featuring maybe the company's first true set of flagship specs, with fast storage, a top line Snapdragon 865 chipset, multiple cameras, wireless charging, and an IP68 waterproof rating. Unfortunately, for a company built on great value phones, this also comes with flagship prices, with the 256GB OnePlus 8 Pro retailing for $999.

80% OnePlus 8 review: More of the same, for $100 more
Source: Android Central English
OnePlus didn't change much from the 7T, but it didn't need to. You get fresh hardware design and a bump in specs, plus 5G, with the same great basics: a really good display, strong battery life, consistent camera performance and amazing software. You just have to deal with the fact that OnePlus is charging $100 more than it did 6 months ago.

That doesn't mean these phones aren't worth buying. Our full reviews will help you decide whether the OnePlus 8 or 8 Pro are worth your hard-earned money and whether the Pro is worth the extra bucks over the vanilla 8. We just hope that the 8's new camera setup isn't inferior in any way compared to last year's 7T and the larger battery would make a significant difference in a positive way. The full review will give us all the answers we need. Stay tuned!

Normally, I'm a big advocate of opting for the less expensive of the multiple models that phone makers put out. Plus and Pro models have flashy features that appeal to power users, but rarely justify the added cost for most smartphone owners. And while the excellent display on the OnePlus 8 won't have users feeling short-changed, the better performing cameras on the OnePlus 8 Pro just might.

Both phones have very good cameras, however the 8 Pro is in a different class. The images are rich, warm and so clear. Although you’ll find that most shots are set to 12 megapixels (by default) on both phones to allow for zooming, there’s a sharpness to the shots on the 8 Pro which really shows through here.

OnePlus 8 review: Mean green flagship machine
Source: Pocket Lint English
Sure, it's pricier than its predecessors, but this handset continues to deliver a flagship experience that costs hundreds less than an equivalent from most others. That's OnePlus' big selling point, delivered time and again. If you want more from the cameras and a better-yet screen, look to the Pro model, otherwise this one is just super as it stands.

Before its launch, many were worried OnePlus would be derailed by 5G, forced to make its phones far more expensive and lose the original OnePlus appeal. The OnePlus 8 costs just slightly more than the OnePlus 7T. Crisis averted.

Colour quirks aside, the OnePlus 8 is a fantastic flagship smartphone at an amazing price. You rarely get this quality level of design, features and performance at such good value. When the biggest let down is that the main camera can do a better job of close-ups than the macro lens, you know you have an excellent phone. The main thing is whether the Pro is enough to tempt you to splash out.

At this moment, that feels right to me, so the OnePlus 8 earns our Editors' Choice for reasonably affordable 5G phones. Whether it feels right to you depends on your economic circumstances. If you can afford to spend more, the OnePlus 8 Pro is a good alternative for T-Mobile, while the Galaxy S20+ is a solid choice for any network.

The OnePlus 8 sets the bar high for budget flagships in 2020. While its design refinements borrow elements from other flagships, it's an undeniably sleek phone, with waterfall display edges and a punch-hole for the front-facing camera. With a Snapdragon 865 and up to 12GB of RAM, the phone is high-performance despite costing notably less than most flagships, making it the cheapest 5G phone in many markets.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 865: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2019 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 2.84 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6 modem (including 60 GHz mmWave support), a Hexagon 698 DSP (up to 15 TOPS) and a Spectra 480 ISP. The integrated memory controller now supports faster LPDDR5 memory with up to 2,750 MHz. LTE is not included anymore in the SoC, but the external Snapdragon X55 5G modem has to be used.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


OnePlus:

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Shenzhen OnePlus Science & Technology Co., Ltd. was founded in 2013. The first smartphone was launched in 2014.

It is a subsidiary of BBK Electronic Corporation, a Chinese giant electronic company group, which contains Oppo and Vivo, too. Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus combined had a world market share of more than 10% in the smartphone business in 2016. This exceeded even the Huawei share and resulted in rank 3 behing Samsung and Apple. Furthermore, it was an increase of about 140% compared to 2015. However, OnePlus is the smallest of the three BBK-smartphone manufacturers.

There are not too many reviews on OnePlus smartphones, the ratings are above average (as of 2016).


83.87%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
