OnePlus 8 Pro Review: Becoming The Villain

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description


Every year since 2014, OnePlus has released a new smartphone, and nearly every year it’s raised the price. That in turn has caused reviewers like me to ask, “is it worth the extra money?” … and for the past six years, the answer, time and again, has been yes.

This is different.

To be clear, I’m not saying the OnePlus 8 Pro doesn’t earn its asking price, which is $899. And we should remember that it’s not the first OnePlus to hit this threshold either: the McLaren edition of last year’s 7T Pro was priced the same. But if we ignore special edition phones and directly compare, generation to generation, what’s available here in the States … the OnePlus 8 Pro is a $230 jump from last year’s 7 Pro.

That’s a lot. To some it’s evidence of OnePlus losing touch with its core values, sacrificing its status as smartphone value hero and finally "becoming the villain." Does this argument hold up, or is OnePlus finally just coming into its own? Find out in the MrMobile OnePlus 8 Pro Review!



MrMobile's OnePlus 8 Pro Review was produced following 13 days with a OnePlus 8 Pro review device (model IN2025) provided by OnePlus. The device was carried alongside a OnePlus 8 (model IN 2015) in Brooklyn NY and tested on Verizon and T-Mobile. It received a single software update during the review period.

MrMobile does not produce paid reviews; no company paid a fee or otherwise offered compensation in exchange for this coverage, and no company was offered copy approval or an early preview of this content. The lone sponsor of the OnePlus 8 Pro review is dbrand.

MrMobile's parent company Future plc participated in a promotional arrangement with OnePlus to host a Q&A session on Twitter following the OnePlus 8 Pro launch. While Michael Fisher answered some questions during that Q&A, neither he nor the MrMobile division was involved in the advertising or negotiation process, and the MrMobile division received no compensation for that participation.

'Even with 5G, IP and WC ... the casing design is very 7T' has to be one of the best lines you've ever wrote in a review :)

Big ups for doing a review on both models (the Pro and non-pro) some people really appreciate seeing the difference.
