  • Blogger checked the OnePlus 7 Pro for water-resistance


    During the presentation of OnePlus 7 Pro, the manufacturer mentioned many features of the new product, including a powerful processor, an advanced camera and a display with a high refresh rate. But one of the characteristics of the flagship gadget was not mentioned — it's about the degree of its protection from water. As usual, check the smartphone for survivability took enthusiasts: video with a session of "scuba diving" has already lit up on YouTube.

    Even before the release of the company's CEO Pete Lau has announced that OnePlus 7 Pro will receive certain protection against ingress of liquid, despite the lack of SERTIFIKACII standard IP. Immediately after the announcement of the device, YouTube blogger Matthew Moniz decided to check whether this statement is true.

    During the experiment, the latest flagship OnePlus was placed in a container with water for 30 minutes. Despite the long drive, the device not only remained operational but also did not receive any noticeable damage: both cameras, display, and microphone continued to work without failures. The only "victims" were the speakers of the device: when playing music, minor distortions were heard.

    The author of the video warned the audience that he does not recommend repeating his actions. According to him, he just wanted to make sure that in case of accidental contact with liquid smartphone price of $669 will not turn into a "brick" on the same day.

      The European Audio and Video Technology Magazine Association (EISA) has announced the winners of several annual nominations for smartphones from various manufacturers. The flagship model of Huawei became the “Smartphone of the Year” in 2019, and the models of Chinese manufacturers took the majority of prizes.
      “The best smartphone”: Huawei P30 Pro

      Huawei received the award in this category for the second year in a row — in 2018 the title of the smartphone of the year received the P20 Pro model. The experts noted the advanced technical characteristics of the device, highlighting the main camera of the four modules, a productive mobile platform and a capacious battery of the device. Previously, the possibility of shooting a smartphone was highly appreciated in DxOMark — according to the resource, Huawei's flagship now ranks second in the global ranking of camera phones.
      "Lifestyle Smartphone": HONOR 20 Pro

      The jury noted the design of the device, a glass case with a gradient color of 3D-glass and the quality of shooting on the main camera of the device. Particular emphasis was placed on the price of the model, which allows you to successfully compete with rivals in the market of mid-level smartphones.
      "Advanced Smartphone": OnePlus 7 Pro

      The OnePlus 7 Pro received its “crown” of a technically advanced gadget for its retractable camera, frameless design, high-performance Snapdragon 855 processor, UFS 3.0 drive, and high-capacity battery.
      "Best Buy": Redmi Note 7

      In the affordable price segment, the smartphone was recognized as the best model in terms of price and performance. The gadget is built on the basis of the mobile platform Snapdragon 660, equipped with a trending 48-megapixel camera and long battery life.
      All EISA nominations will be announced at IFA 2019 in Berlin, which will start on September 6.

      The presentation of the new flagship OnePlus traditionally made a lot of noise. Western publications for several weeks tested the device and immediately after the official announcement published reviews. So, gsmarena staff carefully studied the product and conducted a number of laboratory studies to assess the performance and autonomy of OnePlus 7 Pro.

      OnePlus 7 Pro got the top eight-core Snapdragon 855 processor from Qualcomm, up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of new ultra-fast UFS 3.0 memory. The latter provides almost twice the read speed: 1441 MB/s in 7 Pro against 728 MB/s in 6T. Serial recording frequency in 7 Pro is 381 MB/s, and the predecessor — 193 MB/s.

      GeekBench 4.1 (single-core mode)

      GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core mode)
      In addition to the top filling, OnePlus 7 Pro uses a water cooling system to maintain the optimal temperature of the device during operation.

      AnTuTu 7
      Despite the presence of the most advanced components and the latest memory, OnePlus 7 Pro did not take the leading position in any of the benchmarks. Its results are comparable with other flagships of 2019, but nothing more. However, it is worth considering the fact that the smartphone OnePlus uses a display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It significantly increases the CPU load to provide a smoother picture.

      Autonomy at 90 Hz
      Gsmarena staff also tested the autonomy of the OnePlus 7 Pro. The smartphone has a 4000 mAh battery, but a large 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 3120x1440 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz requires a lot of resources.
      When using the standard settings and the refresh rate of the display is 90 Hz, the smartphone has given 34 hours and 24 minutes when talking on 3G, 10 hours and 10 minutes while surfing the web and 14 hours 33 minutes of video playback.

        Autonomy at 60 Hz
      When you switch OnePlus 7 Pro to the standard 60Hz autonomy grows significantly: 11 hours 45 minutes of web surfing and 16 hours 17 minutes of video playback. Additionally, in the settings, you can lower the resolution to Full HD+ or enable adaptive resolution change to increase the battery life of the device.
      Another innovation OnePlus 7 Pro has become faster charging Warp Charge 30 watts of power, which appeared in 6T McLaren Edition. With it, you can charge your smartphone from 0 to 60% in 30 minutes, and when using the old 20W charge, the device is charged at 47% in half an hour.

      Even before the presentation of OnePlus 7 Pro specialists from DisplayMate said that they have already tested the new product and assigned it the highest rating according to the authoritative resource. Immediately after the announcement, they published a detailed report on the capabilities of the OLED matrix of the gadget and explained why it is.

      According to experts, the OnePlus 7 Pro is equipped with "an impressive display with the highest performance." In particular, the device managed to set several records in the consolidated rating of mobile devices. Displaymate employees paid special attention to the following indicators:
      Maximum absolute color accuracy (0.8 JNCD) The low reflectivity of the screen (4,6%) The largest own color scheme (111% DCI-P3 and 140% sRGB / Rec.Seven hundred nine) The lowest brightness change when changing the viewing angle (22% at 30 degrees) Highest contrast ratio (nominally infinite) According to the results of a detailed study, OnePlus 7 Pro received very good ratings in all categories, except for the blue shift at a viewing angle of 30 degrees — 5.9 JNCD. This did not affect the overall score of the gadget, because the shifts of blue are less noticeable than in the case of red and green.

      As previously reported, the smartphone received the highest a+ rating and shared the first place with the previously tested Samsung Galaxy S10, Apple iPhone XS Max and Google Pixel 3 XL in the category "smartphone with the best display".

      The company OnePlus did not have time to complete the presentation of the new flagship OnePlus 7 Pro techno-blogger Zach Nielson posted a video with the testing device for durability. The smartphone is equipped with a virtually frameless screen and a retractable front camera, which brings some features to its use. Author YouTube channel jerryrigeverything once tested the reliability of the product for their brand method.
      The retractable front camera is hidden in the case when pressed, and a notification appears on the screen, warning against its manual closing to avoid breakage. The camera lens is covered with glass, but the area around it is made of plastic, which is easily scratched. It is worth remembering and keep your smartphone away from the sand, so that the grains of sand do not get into the mechanism and do not damage it.
      OnePlus has implemented fall protection in the smartphone, so if it is in the flight state with the front camera open, it automatically enters the body to avoid damage.
      Like all oneplus smartphones, the new 7 Pro comes with a protective film on the screen. It is easy to scratch and will help to protect the device only at first. Tempered glass Gorilla Glass 6, covering the display, much more difficult to damage. The built-in fingerprint scanner works even if the glass above it is badly scratched. The side frame, including all buttons, SIM tray and even the retractable mechanism of the front, is made of metal. It is also worth noting that the tray for "simok" has a rubber gasket that protects against penetration of water into the body.
      With the test for flexing smartphone also coped successfully even under strong efforts, the housing and the glass remained unharmed.

      At the same time, OnePlus held a presentation of new products in several cities around the world. For the first time in history, the company presented two versions of the flagship smartphone: OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The star of the event was the Pro-version, as the usual "seven" looks almost no different from last year's 6T. The manufacturer did not experiment and collected the main trends of the industry in new products, added the top filling and seasoned it all with proprietary SOFTWARE.

      The usual OnePlus 7 is not much different from last year's 6T. It retained the same design with glass back cover, dual main camera, and teardrop cutout in the screen under the front camera. You can still distinguish smartphones: the new model flash moved to the unit with the camera, and the slot of the speaker has become much wider. The latter is due to the fact that OnePlus smartphones finally have stereo speakers.

      Inside the OnePlus 7 changes much more than externally. The "core" of the smartphone was the eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. OnePlus also used the latest flash memory type UFS 3.0, which was previously used only in Samsung Galaxy Fold. Such a drive makes it much faster to work with files are: save, copy, and share. Also, the manufacturer listened to users and installed an advanced vibration motor, which is much more powerful than what was in previous smartphones of the company.

      The main chamber has undergone dramatic changes. It consists of a 48-megapixel module with a Sony IMX586 sensor and an aperture lens f/1.6 and a second 5-megapixel module for the depth of field analysis.

      OnePlus 7 pro
      All the major innovations the manufacturer has in store for the OnePlus 7 Pro. It received a 6.47-inch Quad HD display — this is the first device of the company with a resolution above Full HD. In addition, this is the first non-gaming smartphone with a screen refresh rate of 90 Hz. As a result, the picture on it is much smoother than on other devices. It is also important that the display has curved edges, as in the flagship Samsung.
      From the cutout in the screen, OnePlus 7 Pro manufacturer refused: the front camera was hidden inside the body on a retractable mechanism. The company says that it is able to withstand 300,000 operations and to raise the camera takes only 0.53 seconds. OnePlus even recorded a 12-hour video where the camera is constantly rising and falling.
      Another difference between the Pro-version of the usual "seven" was the triple rear camera. The main module is the same as in OnePlus 7 — Sony IMX586 with a resolution of 48 MP. In addition, the smartphone received an 8-megapixel sensor for shooting with triple optical zoom and a 16-megapixel module with a wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 117°.

    • OPPO Reno 3 review: Quad camera and lots of memory

      Last year's OPPO Reno 2 smartphone was remembered for its almost flagship characteristics. In the new generation, the emphasis has shifted - the role of the top-end device has been assigned to the Reno 3 Pro, and the standard “three” has become a mid-budget phone. However, Reno 3 received a powerful quad camera, high-quality screen, and a large amount of memory. We find out how good the new product is.

      Four rear modules and a 44-megapixel front-facing camera
      The main camera of Reno 3 received four modules, as in the top-end device of the series - Reno 3 Pro. However, there are some functions missing, such as interpolation up to 108 MP. All the blocks are arranged in a line on an islet that protrudes noticeably upwards if you wear the gadget without a cover.
      The main module has a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48 MP and a lens with an aperture of f/1.8. As usual, in standard mode, it produces 12-megapixel images, and if desired, you can take photos in full resolution - 48 MP. Telephoto is based on a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The ultra-wide Angle is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 2 MP sensor is designed to assess the depth of the scene.

      Telephoto, in addition to 2x optical zoom, provides a 5x hybrid zoom. The photo app allows you to quickly switch between four shooting modes: ultra-wide angle, 1x, 2x, and 5x.
      All modules can function together with HDR. This option works perfectly in Auto mode, improving both the light and dark tones of contrasting scenes. Artificial intelligence confidently recognizes the scenes being shot and selects settings.
      However, in non-standard lighting conditions, if you choose wide-angle optics, the color rendering will not always be accurate. This does not happen with the main module and the telephoto lens.

      The main module paired with the auxiliary module gives clear portraits and realistic blurs the background
      Reno 3 shoots well in mixed and artificial lighting, as well as in the absence of light in the dark. In the most problematic cases, the Night program helps out. It combines several shots and works out all the tones of contrasting scenes. For shooting with manual settings, an Expert preset is provided.
      Multi-megapixel selfies
      The front camera is built into the display and is located in the middle of its upper edge, in the "drop". The camera is equipped with a 44-megapixel sensor and a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens. The default settings are set to a 40-megapixel resolution of images. And the full one is selected by pressing a separate on-screen button. The image quality in both cases is approximately the same. Sharpness appears only from a distance of about 30 cm, that is, for example, it is impossible to obtain a macro photograph of your eye. It seems that the calculation was made for shooting with outstretched hands or a selfie stick. For self-portraits, there are traditionally many beauty options: smoothing the skin, correcting the shape of the face and nose, eye size, and so on.

      Selfies in 44MP mode
      The smartphone records 4K videos at 30 fps. The supported format is Full HD with 30 and 60 fps, as well as slow-motion clips in HD and Full HD. During movie shooting, you can freely switch the zoom.
      In 4K mode at 30 frames per second, the gadget produces a picture with the correct color reproduction and high definition. But when working with hands, stabilization is noticeably lacking.
      Shooting in Full HD at 60 fps uses Ultra Steady Video 2.0 stabilization, which makes the picture smoother.
      Work and entertainment without lags
      Reno 3 is built on an eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. The new product in AnTuTu gives out figures comparable to the results of Kirin 970 and Snapdragon 712, and slightly ahead of Snapdragon 710. And in the Geekbench 5 rating - is on par with Snapdragon 845. This speed is sufficient to avoid slowdowns in any applications.
      8 GB of RAM allows you to run multiple programs simultaneously. The built-in fingerprint sensor acts quickly and accurately. There are no performance problems in games. In the popular WoT: Blitz with default graphics settings, the frame rate is confidently kept at 60 fps.

      The device has only one main speaker, which produces clear sound without distortion up to about 90% of the volume. Plus, there is support for Dolby Atmos. In this software add-on, you can add surround sound and a bit of bass - a great option for multimedia applications.
      Unfortunately, you will not be able to create a full stereo pair, because the speaker is quieter than the main one. But in Reno3 Pro two speakers shake as if you are holding a good Bluetooth speaker in your hands. Complete in-ear headphones deliver high-quality sound. Thanks to the audio jack, you can connect your favorite accessory.

      The built-in storage is not too large: 128 GB. But it is easy to increase it by using a microSD memory card. It is placed in a triple slot next to two nano-SIM cards. We had a 512 GB test card at hand - it worked without problems.
      High autonomy
      The gadget is powered by a 4025 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. A 20 W adapter and a complete cable during the test provided recharging at high speed. For example, from 33 to 78%, the battery was charged in 13 minutes, and up to 100% in 27.
      An hour-long shootout in WoT: Blitz (display brightness - 50%) consumes 11 percent of the battery. That is, without going to the outlet, it is about 9 hours of offline gaming. In Flight-mode, with the same brightness, about 4.4% of the battery charge is spent per hour playing the video in Full HD. Therefore, you should expect 22 hours of offline video viewing. Excellent results!

      If long-term autonomy is not so important, you can disable power consumption optimization in the settings and select "High performance". In this case, the device will work a little faster, and the battery consumption will be stronger.
      Great screen
      Reno 3 is equipped with an AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a resolution of FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels), and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display occupies 90.8% of the front panel area, has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front and thin frames. The image is clear, with rich but natural colors. The viewing angles are large, and the brightness reserve is sufficient for using the phone on the street in any weather. With minimal screen light, it is comfortable to read in a dark room. And at night, you can switch to "Dark mode" - in fact, this is an inverse version of the design: with a black display and a white font. Many people will find it even more convenient, and it also saves battery life.
      Branded shell of the seventh version
      Reno 3 is running a proprietary ColorOS 7 shell based on Android 10. When comparing with the previous version, you can see that the font has not changed, but many icons have been redrawn. However, their shape and size can be easily changed at your own discretion. The screen can be converted to a split format - just make a three-finger swipe up.
      Specifications of OPPO Reno 3
      DISPLAY: 6.4 ", FHD + (2400x1080), 20: 9
      CHIPSET: CPU MediaTek Helio P90 (MT6779V), 2.2 GHz, GPU PowerVR GM 9446

      The OPPO Reno 3 is an interesting device with balanced characteristics. From the first minutes, the beautiful design, slim body, and high-quality 6.4-inch screen make you happy. Later on - high performance, fast recharging, and good battery life. The advantages include the photo-filling, including a 44-megapixel front camera. In addition, the built-in drive can be expanded with a memory card, but not to the detriment of the second SIM card - a trifle, but nice.
