8.9/10
Informr score
The OnePlus 8 Pro currently has an Informr score of 8.9 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 64 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

What's good

  • Large 1440p 120Hz display
  • Impressive performance
  • Good camera results
  • Flexible camera lens options
  • Wireless charging

What's bad

  • Not for small hands
  • Higher Price

Released alongside the OnePlus 8, the OnePlus 8 Pro is the more powerful version of their latest phone lineup. Most of the specs for these phones are identical except for some parts which reviewers considered game changing for better or worse.

OnePlus 8 Pro is larger and doesn’t fit snug in your hand like the OnePlus 8. But in exchange, you get a larger display, more capable cameras, and a few extra features. 

OnePlus 8 Pro differences include:

  • Larger 6.78-inch, 120Hz screen
  • Higher 1440p resolution
  • 48MP quad-camera with improved ultrawide lens and added telephoto lens
  • Larger 4,510mAh battery
  • Wireless charging support
  • Ultramarine color option
  • Documented waterproof rating

It’s hard to deny that the OnePlus 8 Pro has plenty of perks, but they come with a higher price. It’s all about what you want most from your phone experience. For additional specs and more info on the OnePlus 8 Pro check our summary for the smaller OnePlus 8.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is a proper flagship phone. No more cutting corners. No more 'flagship killer' underdog mantra. OnePlus is now officially mixing it with the biggest names in mobile. It means the 8 Pro is also its most expensive handset to date, but there's plenty of bang for your buck to justify t...

Overall, if you’re in the market for a top-line Android phone, and your main consideration is the quality of the onboard camera, the OnePlus 8 Pro should be high up on your list of phones to consider.
