Review of OnePlus 7

It is time for a review of my new smartphone. OnePlus 7 is the name, and it is an upgrade of my old OnePlus 3T smartphone.

First impression of OnePlus 7

I have had my new phone for about 4 weeks now and compared to my old 3T model it has been a big boost. It has super-fast processor, all the RAM I can ask for and an awesome display. To be honest, I was a bid afraid that I would feel that the phones dimension was too big to fit in my pocket. That is not a problem at all. The screen is 6.41 inches (3T is 5.5 inches) but the frame of the phone is only a couple of millimeters higher and a couple of millimeters thicker than my old phone. The thing is that the display is all the way to the edge of the phone where my old phone had a big frame around the display. Another great thing about this new phone is the battery. It is really good. If cause the battery of my old phone was 3 years old, but with the OnePlus 7 i now have a 3700mAh battery and it last a lot longer even when I use my phone a lot.

Unboxing the phone

Unboxing new electronic devices is always exciting 🙂 Included in the box besides the phone itself is: Safety instructions, a power adapter, a power cord and a transparent phone cover (not show on the picture).

 

Transferring data from old phone

Transferring data from an old Android phone to a new OnePlus phone is made very easy using the OnePlus Switch app. All I had to do was to install the app on both my old and new phone and follow the guide. Check the video below to see how the app works.
