OnePlus 7 Discussion

Some leaks beginning to appear, looks like it'll have a pop up camera and confirmed it wont have wireless charging

I like the idea of the popup camera but it's way too finicky for my liking. Anything like that with a motor, especially first iteration, doesn't inspire confidence.

Seen that today myself. Looks interesting though I wonder how durable the pop up camera is. I'd imagine it would break pretty easily.

I don't mind no wireless charging. Its really more of a nuisance than anything. The only place its handy for is in the car, let it charge away while driving. If you were at home or anywhere, it needs to be sitting on charging device and if you need to use it you pick it up and stops charging while if its plugged in with a cable at least you can still use it and it charges away. I read on the Verge i think, that they wont get wireless charging until its capable of charging speeds similar to the lightning quick speeds they get using cable

The OnePlus is the only Android I would buy. I have a OP2, and it's starting to pack in. Apps are slow, phone overheats, and battery drains fast. It's had a great run. It cost me €305 in Feb 2016.

As much as I want an iPhone (Everything else I have is Apple, nothing compares imo). I can't justify 1200 on a phone. My next phone is either a OP6T or a 7

Don't forget that the Oppo Find X had the popup camera last year.
So based on lessons learned (you'd hope!) for that phone, one could argue that this is a second iteration, and not a first.

If the mechanism is made of high grade metal then it could prove sturdy enough.

Only long term reviews will tell though.

OP6 has that, no reason to think this won't?
Edie: sorry...I know OP6t doesn't... hopefully they learned their lesson is what I mean

Can't see that happening as surely with the full screen there is no where to put it.

I'll be considering buying the 7 but a couple of things will put me off.

I'm on my 3rd OnePlus model (6t) at the moment and in hindsight shouldn't have bothered moving from the 5t I had before it.
The 5t was perfect for me in everyway.

The 6t,while a great phone, got a few changes that I think, didn't necessarily make it a better phone.
1: lost its led.
2: I am not a fan of the notch.
3: Fingerprint Sensor.

It's my 5th phone with a fingerprint sensor and imo the worst yet.

With the 7, the notch will be gone so that a plus.
That new pop up selfie cam won't bother me as I never take selfies.
Bigger battery! Brilliant!
New colours! All good again.
Probably no led.dissapointing but not a deal breaker.

So the fingerprint sensor is my main issue.

The popup wouldn't bother me at all as I never use the front camera, but I'd like to have seen wireless charging as I'd forgot how useful it was after not having it on my previous phone to this.

My main interest will be to see if they finally get the main camera right and what the new OS is like. Really like the look of what I've seen in screenshots.

The first iteration is never any good hopefully they have ironed out the bugs etc... and it will be implemented better.

This is down to opinion, but I think the 6t has the best fingerprint sensor I've used. I find it much quicker than the sensor on my previous device (iPhone 7). After the first setup it struggled to recognise my print most of the time, but since the second setup I've had no issues.

Actually looks quite interesting.
As someone who wouldn't even know if a phone had a front camera or not, I'm glad that the thing is hidden away and more real estate given to screen

I don't think it's going to be worth double the price that I paid for my Nokia 8.1 though, even though I'm starting to miss OnePlus phones.

Perhaps they should look to a more budget friendly model, with the 7 series SD processors, for those of us who think the pricing has gotten out of hand
