OnePlus 7 pro has made waves since its launch and one trait which has really been a hallmark of the phone is the speed; it is super fast. While it is expected from phones with the Snapdragon 855 chipset, what makes OnePlus standout is the fact that it has managed to optimise software and hardware. Now that it is established it is crazy fast, it is only natural that we test it with some heavy games.
It should be mentioned here that the OnePlus 7 Pro is the first smartphone with a Snapdragon 855 chipset, which is presently the best of its kind in the market. Also, it is paired with the UFS 3.1 storage and hence, this combination provides the fastest read, write, and storage speeds. Also, it comes packed with 12GB RAM LDDDR4X RAM in the top end variant, which is simply the best on offer currently. To top it all, OnePlus has also used optimised Oxygen OS to control this package.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display which is huge and is the best feature for any gamer as this screen provides an immersive experience. Also, the AMOLED displays have always been known to come up with punchy colours and vibrant contrasts, and this is another winner when we sit down and play games.
The smoothness of the phone is due to the fact that OnePlus 7 Pro offers 90Hz refresh rate which makes the running of supported games smooth. However, for all these plus points, there is one area where OnePlus could have done better – thermal management. But, the phone will not heat up and tank, and there will be no effect on its performance even if you want to sit and be immersed in a two-hour long gaming session. Despite this, the phone warms up quite a lot during these sessions, and this is one scope of improvement.
And then there is the battery life – the OnePlus 7 Pro uses a 4000mAh battery as compared to 5000mAH battery. Yes, the drain is relatively lower than the previous OnePlus phones and hence, for an 8-minute session of PUBG game, the battery slips to 94 per cent from 100 per cent.
