The OnePlus 10 Pro is the latest flagship smartphone from Chinese manufacturer OnePlus. It’s an elegant phone with powerful specs and some nifty new camera tricks up its sleeve. But it’s pricey, so should you buy one? Read on to find out more about what it can do and whether you should go for one.
The OnePlus 10 Pro has a glass back, which means it’s incredibly slippery to hold. You’ll want to use a case or some kind of grip. The loudspeaker is located on the bottom and can become muffled if you’re lying down in bed, but it’s still audible enough that no one will have trouble hearing what you’re watching (or listening to music).
The fingerprint sensor on the right side is easy to reach when holding the phone with one hand, but it’s not as fast or accurate as other in-display sensors we’ve seen lately. If you’re using your phone for unlocking, taking photos or scanning documents — all of which this phone does well — then its lack of speed won’t be an issue for much longer anyway.
There is no headphone jack nor microSD card slot for expanding storage capabilities up to 2TB with an optional adapter
The OnePlus 10 Pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. This translates to a 90Hz refresh rate, which means the screen refreshes 90 times per second, improving your experience when watching videos or playing games on the device.
The OnePlus 10 Pro comes in two color options: Mirror Grey (a glossy finish) and Almond (a matte finish). The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for durability, so you don’t have to worry about damage if your phone falls out of your pocket or bag onto the ground.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is a flagship phone, meaning it’s fast. The Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, makes the OnePlus 10 Pro one of the fastest phones on the market.
The phone has a 90Hz refresh rate that makes all scrolling actions feel smooth and fluid. You won’t notice any lag when swiping through menus or open apps—even when you’re multitasking multiple apps at once!
The battery life of the OnePlus 10 Pro is average for a flagship device. You can expect to get anywhere from three to four hours of screen-on time, with our own tests averaging out at 3 hours and 40 minutes. That’s better than what we got with their previous flagship, the OnePlus 7 Pro (3 hours and 4 minutes), but not as good as some other flagships like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10+ (4 hours and 31 minutes).
The good news is that it supports fast charging over USB-C, which means you can top off in under an hour if you need to. In addition, there will be a wireless charger available at launch so you won’t have to deal with cables if you want faster charging speeds than what USB PD provides.
The camera is the best part of this phone. It’s got a 48MP sensor with an f/1.6 aperture, 1.22μm pixel size and OIS (optical image stabilization). The OnePlus 10 Pro also has a 16MP ultra wide-angle lens with an f/1.7 aperture, 1.22μm pixel size and OIS support as well. This comes handy in low light situations where you can’t shoot with the main camera because it doesn’t have OIS support on both sides of the lens (OnePlus doesn’t invite a multi-camera setup).
The OnePlus 10 Pro is an awesome phone, but how do you get it working in the US?
If you want to use the OnePlus 10 Pro in the US, you’ll need a SIM card from a US carrier. The phone uses GSM technology and works with AT&T and T-Mobile. If you’re with Verizon or Sprint, forget about it.
The next step is to flash a ROM with a US bootloader. This will allow you to use your phone on an American network without having to unlock the bootloader every time. If this sounds like too much work for now but you’d love to try out OxygenOS in America one day, flashing an unlocked bootloader may be for you—but we do not recommend this route unless you know what’s going on!
It’s worth it.
OnePlus 10 Pro is a great phone, but it’s not perfect. The design isn’t as sleek as the competition, and there are some bugs that need to be ironed out. It’s also expensive for what it offers—but if you’re looking for a high-end flagship device and don’t want to spend $1,000+ on an iPhone or Galaxy S10+, then yes: it’s worth the trouble.
In conclusion, the OnePlus 10 Pro is a great phone with some of the best specs you can find. The only drawback is that it’s not officially available in the US. If you want one, then you’ll have to import it from another country or go through some other means like buying off eBay or directly from OnePlus official site.
