The "1-Minute" Review

Verdict

There’s a lot to like about the new OnePlus 10 Pro. Much of what was unsuccessful on previous phone versions has been improved upon. However, it still falls ever-so-slightly behind in other areas.

What's good

  • Good screen
  • Superfast charging
  • Very nice design

What's bad

  • The camera could be better
  • Battery life is mediocre
  • No 5G on AT&T

The OnePlus 10 Pro aims to dethrone some of the higher-end mid-rangers with a reasonable price and generous features. Does their approach work, and what do you get?

Design

This phone might be a bit on the big side for some people. Reviewers stated it had a beautiful matte finish in Black or Green. The backplate is made from Gorilla Glass along with an extra coat for preventing smudges.

Display

The 6.7-inch AMOLED is the main culprit for the phone’s large footprint. Reviewers say the screen is mega bright and beautiful. It learns how you like your screen brightness in certain situations with vivid colours and good contrast. If that’s not enough, it also supports a 120Hz refresh rate that adjusts itself depending on what you’re doing on your phone.

Performance

The OnePlus 10 Pro has the most powerful chipsets for Android as of its release. The only potential issue with that is the Snapdragon 8 Gen-1 is known for overheating. If you’re always in the high-performance mode, you’ll likely run into a very hot phone eventually.

Software & Storage

This phone comes loaded with Android 12 along with the company's Oxygen OS 12 running over the top. Reviewers were excited to see that the OnePlus 10 Pro will receive three years of updates and four years of security patches. You have the choice of either 8 or 12GB of RAM and 128 or 256GB of space.

Cameras

Reviewers said the main issue with the camera set up on this phone was the zoom lens can blow out contrast too harshly. Likewise, if there’s a bright object anywhere in your photo without the zoom enabled, it can also cause pictures to look over-exposed and the colors dull or faded.

Battery Life

The most notable thing in terms of battery is the super-fast charging, 80W (the U.S is restricted to 65W) charging, meaning you could, in theory, have your phone charged and ready to go in around half an hour. The OnePlus 10 Pro has a 5,000mAh battery as well.

Audio

The OnePlus 10 Pro has dual speakers that reviewers stated can get very loud. However, at louder volumes, they lose clarity and become distorted. There is no headphone jack, but that’s easily remedied with either USB-C headphones or Bluetooth.

Specs at a Glance

  • Aluminum chassis
  • 6.7-inch AMOLED
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SM8450 processor
  • 8/12GB of RAM
  • Android 12 with OxygenOS 12
  • 128/256GB of storage
  • 48+MP camera
  • 5000mAh battery

Bottom Line

OnePlus 10 Pro is a phone that has corrected many of its predecessors’ errors. With the fastest chipset available for Android phones, it’s decently fast and responsive. The cameras leave something to be desired when it comes to reflective or glowing objects but are otherwise reliable and clear. 120Hz refresh rate adds to the appeal, especially since it can automatically adjust on its own. It’s probably the best Android phone as of its release in its price class.

Android Central says, “The OnePlus 10 Pro combines a bold new design with top-tier internal hardware, sublime 120Hz AMOLED screen, all-day battery life, and ultra-fast 80W charging. It has one of the best haptic engines, bloat-free software, and a 48MP camera that takes great photos. The software has a few bugs and the auxiliary cameras aren't particularly great, but as an all-round flagship, there is a lot to like here.”

Pocket Lint states, “In almost every way, the OnePlus 10 Pro is a very good smartphone. In fact, we have no serious complaints about it. The display is bright and smart, and the internal power ensures the 10 Pro retains that trademark 'fast and smooth' feel we've come to expect. Even the cameras are better this year. However, despite all of its strengths, the 10 Pro also doesn't blow us away in every area.”

If you just don’t like Samsung’s phones (and there are good reasons not to), and the Pixel 6 line’s rocky history has put you off that choice, then the OnePlus 10 Pro is a serious contender. It’s the third flagship we’ve been wanting. But in my case, it doesn’t quite meet the company’s tagline—Never...

The OnePlus 10 Pro had a mixed battery performance, highlighted by its excellent charging performance, which offset its poor autonomy. The OnePlus 10 Pro’s new 80W charger filled up the large 5000 mAh battery in only 42 minutes 24 seconds, while the 50W wireless stand charger took only 56 minutes 15...

Plenty of reviews say that for the $899 price point, the OnePlus 10 Pro is one of the best Android phones for the money. However, while its camera array is impressive – and a big update over previous OnePlus flagships – many say the camera system on the Google Pixel 6 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro give you...

The OnePlus 10 Pro 5G is a very cool phone. I think it’s easily the most accomplished smartphone OnePlus has cooked up, although I can see some of the ColorOS changes being a little controversial. It feels significantly more polished than the typical OnePlus offering at the expense of the more speed...

The OnePlus 10 Pro is a really comfortable device to hold with stunning hardware. With the addition of an official pathway to purchase and get a warranty, preferably with a touch of polish on the software I’d happily call this one of the better value buys of 2022 but it’s not a flagship killer anymo...
