OnePlus 7 Pro 5G - Most Powerful phone I have ever used




Say Hello to my new little friend the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. Sprint has started down a new path carrying this amazing device. OnePlus moto is "Never Settle".  They pride themselves on community driven forward thinking. Designing around what users want and need. They take issues to the heart, focused on selfless and professional settings to shoot and create hi-res videos with great stabilization. They listened to gamer's and incorporated a do-not-disturb feature to keep game play undisturbed. They are driven by their community for their community. 


If you havent met the Oneplus 7 then you are in for a real treat. This beauty comes loaded with a 6.67" QHD+ screen 3120 x 1440 pixels 516 ppi. It is the first phone that has a 90Hz refresh rate. It is equipped with a triple camera system stemming from 8, 16 and 48 Megapixels. 8Gb or Ram and over 200GB of storage. Comes with a 4000 mAh battery and charger that can charge the whole device in under 20 minutes. Is sporting the Qualcomm 855 processor for fast action and highend game play. This device is a beast and I cannot wait to fully immerse myself into what it has to offer.  


The Qualcom 855 chip is the champion of chip sets. It is listed as the first chip to be built on the 7nm processing technology. Previous technology was on 10nm. This size maybe reduced but the overall power is immense. This chipset is what powers the LG G8 ThinQ and brings the tech to life.  provides up to 7x20 carrier aggregation downlink (2Gbps) and 3x20 carrier aggregation uplink (316Mbps). The Processor sports the updated 485 CPU with 8 cores giving a clock speed of 2.84ghz. The NEW updated GPU Adreno 640 can render and mimic real-life look, feel, depth, and material, giving a user a graphical representation of a true-to-life experience. This a first in mobile gaming and it is a first true HDR gaming on a mobile.  Speaking of HDR, along with processing power this chipset brings the new HDR10 experience for life-like footage with a wide spectrum of color that is rich, accurate, and high-contrast.


As with all my phones I run a series of benchmark tests to determine the phone's ability to handle its processor and memory available. I like to know where my phone stands in comparison to other devices. I have tested the device using 4 different performance management software each yielded some great results. When I run my tests, I do this first before setting up any other application or service. I have minimal services running in the foreground or background so as to not skew my results. I also make sure my battery operational temperature is around 26-28 degrees Celsius. 



Geekbench 4



This performance test again measures the GPU's ability and the CPU processing power. Geekbench 4 scores are calibrated against a baseline score of 4000 (which is the score of an Intel Core i7-6600U). Higher scores are better, with double the score indicating double the performance. The OnePlus 7 out did all the other competition single-core score of 3533 and Multi-core of 11035. In comparison the LG G8 with the same processor scored 3510/10987. The processor is showing signs to be able to handle extreme heavy usage with high end games and heavy CPU needs being met. For the Graphics computational test the OnePlus 7 scored a RenderScript score of 11035 whereas the LG G8 had 10987. 



PCMARK for Android

Utilizing the work 2.0 performance test the application ran its myriad of tests checking processing, picture manipulating, and editing ability of documents, navigating interweb and data manipulation. Along with this test I evaluated the Computer Vision option which aims to focus on the device’s performance with image recognition tasks. Finally, the Storage test which checks for the devices ability to handle fast smooth stutter-free performance when accessing storage content.  Work 2.0 performance yielded a score of 10626, Computer vision came in at 5634, and the Storage component was 13412. All these scores are in line with high end multitasking devices. For comparison the LG G8 scored 8647/5243/8524 n the same tests. 






With 3DMark I ran the Sling Shot Extreme which utilizes the OpenGL ES 3.1 or Vulkan graphics API. Graphic tests are based on a 2560 x 1440 screen resolution. The Slingshot ES 3.1 - Demo program is extremely demanding to get the results it looks for. The applications also test the devices rendering abilities, graphic intensive ability. It is geared for evaluating a devices ability to handle high end computations for graphic rendering and video playback. It is computed via a graphics test and a physics test to measure CPU performance. The OnePlus 7 Had an Impressive score of 5688 for OpenGL ES 3.1 and 5087 for Vulkan. In comparison the LG G8 had 5660/4976. The OnePlus 7 scored 99% better thank results from all other devices. This shows the OnePlus 7 is in line with high-end multitasking and computational abilities and seems to beat out its competitors in handling the same CPU.



Antutu Benchmark & 3D Rating



This Benchmark application measures multiple layers of evaluation from memory performance, CPU integer Performance, and 2D 3D graphics Performance. The overall results of this test yielded a score of 372257 while the LG G8 had 356919. This score came back with the device handling a 3D game performance at a high quality mode.  CPU processor also confirmed to support large apps with excellent multitasking. This device is listed as defeating 99% of other user devices who ran the same test. The Samsung S10+ with the same 855 chipset performance had a score of 358845 but the S10 with the 9820 chipset only had a score of 332526. 


Per my review of the processor the OnePlus 7 seems to utilize the processor in the best ways and is tuned to getting the most out of what the Qualcomm 855 chip can provide. Cannot wait to test the gaming one this device as per these scores it should be amazing. Along with all the other features embedded into this device I am loving it more and more. 


Enjoy and remember never use your phone or tablet while driving, be safe and healthy.
