Test OnePlus 7T Pro: a OnePlus 7 Pro with more power

Presentation

After two new phones in less than 6 months, OnePlus is no longer one new version away. So here comes the OnePlus 7T Pro, which takes the exterior codes of the 7 Pro while slightly improving some interior components.

device is sold at the same price (€759) as the 256GB + 8GB RAM configuration of OnePlus 7 Pro. This allows us to position it in front of a Samsung Galaxy S10e, aHuawei P30, anOppo Reno 10x Zoom or even aHuawei P30 Pro.

Ergonomics and design

OnePlus 7T was very similar to OnePlus 7. OnePlus 7T Pro looks a lot like 7 Pro. You have to look at the photo area on the back to see that the focus laser is now positioned to the left of the modules instead of between the second and third sensor. The rest is identical: same dimensions (162.6 x 76 x 8.8 mm) and same weight (206 g).

À At the front is this large 6.67-inch curved slab with a speaker just above it. One-handed operation still proves tedious, but it's a matter of habit. This Amoled screen occupies about 90% of the total surface area, counting the curved edges. The fingerprint sensor retains the space it had on the previous iteration.

By face, the two mobiles are identical.

Pas front sensor on this model since, as on the OnePlus 7 Pro, there is a retractable sensor located on the top edge of the mobile. Far from being fast, it is not likely to be used often to unlock the phone with your face since it appears in 0.65 seconds - as on the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Sur At the bottom edge, there is a slot for 2 SIM cards, a USB-C port and the second speaker. On the right side, there is the switch that allows you to choose to activate sound or mute the phone, as well as the start button. Finally, on the opposite side is the volume control.

Audio

Comme the OnePlus 7T, the 7T Pro does not have a 3.5 mm mini-jack port. And no adapter is included in the box. So you'll have to make do with USB-C headphones or a Bluetooth headset to enjoy your music.

Sinon, you can use the two speakers on the phone. The quality is pretty good and the stereo sound is perfect for games, YouTube videos and listening to music from time to time.

Screen

OnePlus 7T Pro therefore comes with the same Fluid Amoled slab size as its predecessor. It retains the same diagonal (6.67 inches), but its resolution increases to 3,120 x 1,440 dpi (for a resolution of 516 dpi). The refresh rate at 90 Hz is still present, which is not to displease us. At first glance, this will not hit you in the retina, but when you go back to a classic screen (60 Hz type), you will notice a difference in the fluidity of use. The 90 Hz is finally very pleasant.

Comme on the OnePlus 7T, to get the best display quality, you have to go through the display settings and choose the "Natural" option. Once this is done, we measure a Delta E of 2.1 and a color temperature of 6,836 Kelvin. A value close to the video standard (6,500 K).

La readability in full sunlight is very good thanks to a maximum luminosity of 590 cd/m², especially since the slab manages reflections well (reflectance limited to 44%). At night, the minimum luminosity drops to 2 cd/m², which is again very good. Oled obliges, the contrast is almost infinite. The persistence is non-existent and the tactile delay is 68 ms.

Performances

newborn from OnePlus runs with a Snapdragon 855+ which also equips the OnePlus 7T. Coupled with 8 GB of RAM, it offers performances (score of 99.52) worthy of the market's flagship products and is positioned just a stone's throw away from the Meizu 16S.

In game, the Adreno 640 takes over. Not as well optimized as a P30 Pro or a ROG Phone 2, the mobile is nevertheless doing well. Qualcomm's new platform enabled it to achieve a score of 99.21. A game mode is present to boost performance - the Fnatic mode, named after the eSport team -, but it is difficult for us to judge its relevance since it can only be activated via the Game Space (a game aggregator present in Oxygen OS) and not in the settings.

Photo

La photo recipe for the OnePlus 7T Pro is no different from the 7T. So we find again 3 sensors: a 48MP main sensor (Sony IMX586), a 3x 8MP telephoto lens and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens.

By day, the result is correct but not at the level of what Huawei's smartphone offers (the P30 Pro here in comparison). The scene is a bit overexposed on the OnePlus side and the smoothing is well present. The color rendering is also a bit duller.

In low light is a little better than the Huawei P30 Pro. The sensitivity is higher (ISO 6400) and, in fact, the exposure is better. Although there is a fairly good smoothness compared to the P30 Pro, night shots are better controlled on the OnePlus 7T Pro.

Module ultra-wide-angle: 16 Mpx, eq. 17 mm, f/2,2

secondary module is rather suitable, even if strongly smoothed. Contrary to what we are used to seeing in this kind of picture, the right side of the image does not have any strong light reflections - which can be seen on the P30 Pro, for example. However, a kind of blurred haze sets in on the picture and deteriorates the overall quality a bit.

By night, it's like with the main module. The scene is much more exposed than on the Huawei, but this is at the expense of quality. There is a lot of noise on the shot, without the details being less preserved than on the Huawei smartphone.

Module telephoto lens: 8 Mpx, eq. 51 mm, f/2,4

Telephoto lens of the OnePlus 7T Pro offers a good 3x zoom. The color rendering seems to be under control, as well as the management of details. There is some smoothing, but nothing too bad on a module of this type.

Pas difficult to say who is the winner on this round. Although both results are not great, the OnePlus 7T Pro is doing better. Lack of stitching and a lot of noise on stage, but the color reproduction is more accurate.

Caméra front, portrait mode and vidéo

16MP front sensor (as on the OnePlus 7 Pro) offers very good results. It manages to handle strong lights, when there are any. Portrait mode works well. The cropping is quite precise, but we regret a blurring effect that is not strong enough and that, in fact, does not highlight the subject sufficiently.

For the video, it is possible to shoot up to 4K at 60 frames per second. The presence of an optical stabilizer (OIS) and an electronic stabilizer (EIS) makes it possible to capture perfectly stable videos.

Autonomy

In In terms of battery life, the OnePlus 7T Pro performs well. It stopped after 14 h 36 min of our intensive Smartviser test, which is a big day in practice, but no more.

La recharging is fast and takes just over 1 hour to fill the 4,085 mAh battery. Warp technology and the 30W power pack do their job well.
