MacRumors videographer Dan Barbera checked out OnePlus 7 Pro when it was first launched, but spent a little more time there for a thorough comparison shared on our YouTube channel.
OnePlus 7 Pro is priced from $ 669, making it significantly cheaper than the iPhone XS Max, which is priced at $ 1
It has a 6.67-inch OLED screen that is edge-to-edge with no object except a small hook at the bottom. Unlike the iPhone, there is no notch and no cutout for the camera facing the camera, which is because OnePlus has designed a pop-out camera that snaps up when you need to take a selfie.
There have been questions about how durable this pop-up camera is, and the short answer is that even though we have spent a little more time with it, we still do not know how to stay over time and when it is exposed to the elements, although it seems to be durable.
OnePlus offers face recognition, but like all Android devices, it's not on par with the iPhone's face ID. It's 2D image recognition, which means it can't be used for secure operations like making payments. That's fine, because with a pop-up camera it is easier to use the fingerprint sensor on the display.
Fingerprint sensors in the display are practical, but in this case, while it works well, it is not as fast or easy to use as Face ID.
The AMOLED screen is of high quality and looks good and there is no denial that no notches are superior to a notch. It has curved sides on the side, which can make the covers and screen protectors impractical, but these are the benefits of a 90Hz refresh rate. iPhone XS Max has a flat screen that is more convenient, yet equally vibrant, light and sharp.
In terms of performance, modern smartphones are equipped with advanced components and daily use, both of which are super fast, and you will not notice much of a difference between them. One Plus 7 Pro offers up to 12 GB of RAM while iPhone XS Max has 4 GB of RAM, but Apple has always been better in memory management and thus there is no noticeable difference in performance.
There is a 4000mAh battery in OnePlus 7 Pro, but battery life does not turn out iPhone XS Max. It wins out when it comes to charging, but because it has a fast charging feature that takes it from 0 to 100 percent in one hour.
Of course, the iPhone has fast charging, but the difference is the OnePlus 7 Pro ships with the power adapter needed to enable faster charging while the iPhone does not. OnePlus 7 Pro does not have wireless charging, but it is a drawback.
There is no water resistance class on OnePlus 7 Pro, while iPhone XS Max has an IP68 rating, which means it can hold up to immersion in water. OnePlus claims that OnePlus 7 Pro Water Resistance Certification would have made each device $ 30 more expensive and that the smartphone is capable of being soaked in water, but you have to take OnePlus's word for it.
When it comes to the camera, gains iPhone XS Max. Although the iPhone camera is double objective and not triple lens like One Plus 7 Pro, iPhone produces better images. OnePlus has never been known for camera quality, and the company has confirmed that there are problems with the 7 Pro camera. An update is in the works to cope with some customer complaints, but as it is, iPhone goes over to OnePlus.
Especially highlights are the overblown on OnePlus compared to the iPhone, and the portrait mode is just not that sharp. We liked the ultra-slim camera lens, which the iPhone is rumored to receive in 2019.
The hardware may be similar in terms of performance between the two smartphones, but there is still a big difference in software, including iOS vs Android.
Although there are advantages and disadvantages to both operating systems, most deep in the iOS ecosystem, preferring iOS devices, do not want to switch to Android, even though Android devices like OnePlus 7 Pro can be much cheaper.
What do you think of OnePlus 7 Pro? Is its feature set and lower price points worth leaving the Apple ecosystem? Please let us know in the comments.
