With all other flagship phones breaching the thousand-dollar bracket — with the LG V60 as en exemption — the OnePlus 8 Pro is looking very appealing at US$ 899, even if it’s US$ 230 more expensive than last year. This pricing strategy is the smartest thing OnePlus could have done this year. The hard...

The OnePlus 8 Pro is the biggest, meanest, and best smartphone OnePlus has put out thus far. At least that’s what it aims to be. It features a fantastic set of cameras, a big, gorgeous, 120 Hz AMOLED screen, the fastest possible hardware on an Android phone, and an impressive battery.

The 8 Pro price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare OnePlus 8 Pro prices from around the web here on The Informr.

With all other flagship phones breaching the thousand-dollar bracket — with the LG V60 as en exemption — the OnePlus 8 Pro is looking very appealing at US$ 899, even if it’s US$ 230 more expensive than last year. This pricing strategy is the smartest thing OnePlus could have done this year. The hardware on this phone is the cream the crop; performance is great, photos are excellent, and the experience? Possibly the best in the Android space.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is the best phone it has offered up so far. It excites me. Not because it necessarily does something better than others, but because it does what other flagships do at a cheaper price. I am not advocating for this as the phone solution for all consumers. Many readers do not need this much hardware and they certainly can get away with a much lower-priced and lesser-powered experience. But for those who do want the “latest and greatest”, I submit the OnePlus 8 Pro.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is a solid smartphone packed with a well-improved camera and all the top features that you'd expect from a flagship like reverse wireless charging, stereo speakers, and a top-of-the-line display with 120Hz refresh rate. Top performance from the Snapdragon 865 and 5G connectivity are must-haves in this space, but where OnePlus is no longer competing is in the very space it began.

Its camera performance now competes in the big leagues in every meaningful way, and that's something we've been asking for from OnePlus for a long time. The OnePlus 8 Pro also ticks a few more critical check boxes that will appeal to a wider audience, including fast 30 Watt wireless Warp Charge, IP68 water and dust resistance, and of course 5G and WiFi-6 capabilities. If you're looking to "never settle," the OnePlus 8 Pro is a no compromise device that, while still expensive (especially for a OnePlus phone), is still a good value, when you consider pricing for competitive flagships like Samsung's Galaxy S20 family that starts at $1K for a 128GB of storage variant.

This is a really expensive phone — but it's worth every penny. The OnePlus 8 Pro merges great hardware with some of the best software you can get. As always, there are nits to pick when it comes to the camera (and, if you're really picky, the screen), but even on a more pessimistic device comparison, there's not a lot that's bad about the 8 Pro.

Killer flagship

from Android Authority

The OnePlus 8 Pro is the most expensive phone OnePlus has ever made, but at $899 it's still cheaper than a number of competing flagships while offering a superior experience in a number of ways. With fast wireless charging, an official IP68 rating, and great battery life, this phone is what the OnePlus 7T Pro should have been.
