OnePlus 8 Review- We’ve seen this before with the removal of the headphone jack in the OnePlus 7; here, the OnePlus 8 and higher-specced but pricier OnePlus 8 Pro have swapped that phone’s pop-up selfie camera with a punch-hole in the top-left corner.
Admittedly, the camera is less cool to operate, but it isn’t such a loss: switching to a static camera likely made the new phones more water-resistant. In fact, the OnePlus 8 Pro has an IP68 water- and dust-resistance rating (but not the OnePlus 8, which only has the usual OnePlus assurance of water resistance).

The new phone brings the base-level version to a flagship level of polish and improves its specs, too.
OnePlus 8 Review, Price And Specs
Last year, the brand’s phones split between an affordable ‘standard’ version and a Pro model that was a substantial upgrade in terms of both features and looks; but this year the OnePlus 8 gets physical refinements that weren’t granted to 2019’s more affordable models.

OnePlus 8 Review
Product Name: OnePlus 8 Phone
Product Description: The OnePlus 8 has created a level high for affordable flagships in the world. You can consider it to be going better than iPhone sooner or later, While its design refinements borrow elements from other flagships, it's an undeniably sleek phone, with waterfall display edges and a punch-hole for the front-facing camera. With a Snapdragon 865 and up to 12GB of RAM, the phone is high-performance despite costing notably less than most flagships, making it the cheapest 5G phone in many markets.
The OnePlus 8 represents a culmination of trends. It brings the brand’s famously low-price, high-spec phones ever closer to, if not quite on par with, the polish of other flagship phones. In several ways, it also shows that OnePlus is adopting some of its competitors’ design philosophies.
- Affordable 5G connectivity
- Impressive specs
- Big 4,300mAh battery
- No telephoto camera
