Underwater OnePlus 7 Pro Review

Published on May 14, 2019
My review and water test of the OnePlus 7 Pro. This is the fastest android phone on the market - has no notch, no hole but is somehow VERY water resistant.
OP7 Pro - amzn.to/2WIlJ1J
The pop-up camera on the OnePlus 7 allows this camera to have a completely clean front with no protrusions or visual obstructions. The curved edges look awesome but it's a change to the oneplus design that can hinder usability.

  • The distortion and shimmering water in the jug made the phone look like it was turning off constantly. I was so distracted. Thanks for watching! Is the OnePlus 7 what you hoped for? Is it too expensive for what it is?

    • You know, you could put a mirror in front of you so you can see the phone without having to glance over.

    • @jalabi99 you can use the OnePlus headphone adapter, I'm using the one that came with OnePlus 6t

    • az zahar eh? Too expensive? Youโ€™ve clearly never bought an IPhone bud

    • Dave, any thin bumper case that does not defeat the infinity display? thanks!

    • Oneplus 7 pro cheated on camera zoom it is not 3x it is only 2.2x........๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

  • i like the suddel ad

  • "No one is forcing you to buy the Pro over the One Plus 7." ... Unless you live in the US.

  • got anxiety when you threw the phone

  • nice video except I disagree with everything in it

  • Where i can buy s10+ for 700$ dave ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

  • I'm really curious, Dave, if you experienced any issues with the phone in the few days following that water test? I've heard that water damage can sometimes take a while to show.

    • @FeelsGoodDarius I'm guessing this video is the one you are referring to. ruvideo.info/watch/MXgB8b8Ndfo-video.html Tests seem pretty extensive :) But water does enter the phone at 1.5 meters for 20min. So, I guess that means its not IP68. It might be IP67.

    • There's this video on youtube you can probably find it without me linking it since its pretty popular where someone does very extended water tests with this phone and the only time bubbles came out of the phone were when it was in 1.5 meter deep water (bubbles means that water has entered the internal part of the phone. So I don't think any water is going in unless you are taking the phone to a deep dive

  • wow blown away

  • What's current status?

  • Halo guys david disini

  • @gadgetins

  • I know you didn't want to do it, but thanks for testing the camera underwater. It was something that was holding me back on purchasing the phone. I love the detail in your videos, stuff like this always has me coming back.

  • That edge application. What is it?

  • an Indonesian reviewer just broke his OP7 just because he put it in water bath shallower than yours lmao

  • I've had the OnePlus 7 Pro for about 2 weeks now and it's the best phone I've ever had. So glad I didn't choose something else when I upgraded.

  • 750 for the best phone. Yes

  • Hello Dave, Please review the retail units, not the review units. OP 7 Pro has got lots of issues, phantom touch, low picture quality, fingerprint reader burning screen and many more. We, users, watch your videos and get inspired to buy and later end up disappointed with the issues with no guarantee it'll be fixed. We do not want a phone having issues initially and hoping it'll be fixed later. Please request for retail units rather than review units so we get to know any issues. This is totally unfair, camera samples nowhere matches to what reviewers say on RUvideo. Not fair by OnePlus sending different unit for reviewers and users. This makes lose trust on reviewers as well.

  • I own an iPhone X and the pro 7 is a bargain when compared to the 10 + or iPhones XS Max. And thatโ€™s despite the ยฃ100 price hump. I think the OP fan base lose sight of that. I dunno some people just want the moon on a stick. Seriously considering jumping Apple for this without the chucking in swimming pools or lakes

  • Is it one plus 7 water resistant same as one plus 7 pro ?

  • please vote...if you could either get a note 9 or oneplus 7 pro, which would you take?

    • I have a Note 9, I really enjoy it except the camera on the Note 9 is really bad for fast moving subject's, it blurs almost every time. I have a 3 year old and trying to capture a decent shot when he's moving is almost impossible. Lots of online content about this problem with the Note 9, Ive installed Gcam to try to fix this issue but still not great. For this reason alone I'd consider the OP7 Pro slightly ahead as capturing moving images is important to me, although I appreciate maybe not for everyone. Other than that the Note 9 is really good.

  • What is that third party app for using edge ?? And what's was wallpaper on your op7 ??

  • Let's see if that phone will last for a month. It may work now for how long?

  • *_The build quality of Oneplus is like buying a fake iphone._*

  • I recommend you guys to buy this version of one plus 7 pro I bought it from Amazon and its really great phone amzn.to/2Rd5KXy

  • Still has a chin, and everybody is going to have a chin but iPhone, cuz Apple owns the patent for the zif connector

  • Buy Oneplus 7 @t & get extra assured paytm cashback.

  • I doubt Zack is not here for the hard ware sort of things

  • I like how this guy talks very professional and sharp, you gained a subscribe from me buddy

  • this is still a flagship killer.Yes its price has risen quite a bit,unlike the brand yatatata.However, it still fulfills its purpose, being on par or being better than flagships like the samsung s10,iphone xs,huawei p30 etc.

  • hey i gotta ask, is it worth getting the 12gb model?Or is the 8 gb model good enough?i just gotta know!!

  • Have an S10 Plus. Confused whether to change it to Oneplus 7 Pro!! Any advice?

  • sir please do the same test for oneplus 7

  • Might I suggest a video monitor or even a simple mirror to keep the phone in view while you look toward the camera?

  • Alto's odyssey!

  • Thank you so much for shutting down the myth that the OnePlus 7 Pro isn't water resistant just because it doesn't have an IP rating, other reviewers please take notes

  • Is this a cult religion?

  • You aren't much of an actor..That's all I'm sayin;..

  • Dave, I really don't think you understand the evolution of the OnePlus market. You are looking at them like they are ONLY a budget conscious smartphone maker. They are not budget. They are budget friendly in relation to the recent flagship technology and the competitors in the field. The global price of these flagship specs have gone up. For example you can't go from a shitty VGA camera to 4K recording camera and expect to pay $299 for a phone. As a matter of fact, outside of the OnePlus 5T every single new addition of the OnePlus has risen in price. infogram.com/1pkrr9d53zrx3rt9vp2kqkle7wa3r63z6ng You have to look at the market in relation to value of other flagships. I'd say the closest in price is the S10E and there are special reasons to buy the S10E over the OP7 Pro, but hardware spec wise outside the camera it has it beat by a decent margin. Way more RAM, a beefier processor, 90HZ refresh display, bigger screen, fingerprint sensor. Its not even close.

  • Or just don't use your phone around water? Like chill out...you're not going to die while you go pee. Also, people buy for the impressiveness of others. They don't look at price for economical purpose but to convince people they have money. It's a phone. You'll have it for like 18 mo maybe...

  • Hey, can you do a test if the phone can click an image underwater ? Both rear and front facing

    • My gay ass read โ€œunderwaterโ€ as underwear. Aish.

  • its a cool phone but on a sidenote, water damage will occumulate over time even a non water resistand phone will still survive a water bath.

  • Everyone is worried about waterproofing no one is talking about how this phone requires you to pair to Bluetooth speakers every time you turn on your car

  • โ€œcannot go backโ€œ is So True, even not all apps support 90hz ,But I m so in love with the real infinity full screen with no notch or holes whatsoever in oneplus7pro, I'm about to drop S10plus ceramic 8/512, very very soon. Ps. I skipped oneplus 6,6t bcoz of mono speaker& fhd screen.

    • Shersha Basheer I got both for over a week, here are opinions; 1+7pro v. 9.5.7, 90hz screen is awesome. haptic feedback is superb. Nebula blue color is fantastic, Almond is my next choice. Stereo speakers is a bit less clarity & rich surround sound than s10, but it's good enough for me Battery is as good as S10plus with bit bigger screen. Warp charge is a big win over s10 The speed, fluidity, and ram management are surpassed the s10, not by much. S10plus over oneplus ; Screen brightness and quality are noticeable better,not by much Features on s10 are far richer and more customized by one ui and Nice Lock app. Camera is better on s10, but for front cam. I like oneplus7 , In my country, Samsung services stores are plenty across country, none of oneplus , also galaxy gift , samsung pay. S10plus is one hand operated, oneplus7pro is too big. Conclusions, If you are a gaming and multimedia guy, and like a big phone ,then go for oneplus7pro. If camera, and features rich needed, go for s10plus, For me im the social and multimedia, so i probably go for oneplus7pro, But one thing ,i still cant drop the s10plus , because, its body design with one hand ergonomic. cannot decide just yet...

    • Same issue here. Have an S10 Plus. Confused whether to change it to Oneplus 7 Pro!! Any advice?

  • I really really enjoyed this review format please do more with the water. Would love to see how the Redmi K20 Pro fares!

  • Nice video Dave

  • I really like the Oneplus 7 Pro, but it's too big! Is there any alternative that has no notch / pinhole, flagship specs, stereo speakers and a clean software? I haven't found anything that matches my criteria....

  • xiaomi black shark 2 vs 1+7 pro bs2: im better for gaming 1+7: fuck off i got 90fps and a good camera 'nubia red magic 3 enters the chat'

  • You know that's only 10% of what a certified phone goes through, right?

  • Just got mine today having a great experience.

  • 2:13 bro even U watch goonzquad I love them

  • lools like Pete Lau

  • Where is the proximity sensor?

  • I hear the camera sound when it pops up and retract in near end of the video.

  • love this youtube uploader, you do a good job on these revieuws ;)

  • Iโ€™ve never seen Dave cringe that much.

  • im trying to get a new phone myself. price isnt really a problem but i really like the OnePlus 7 pro. do u think i should get it or go for another phone?

  • 12:10 What game is it?!

  • Itโ€™s ยฃ700 or $700 because of the stuff you get there is no way you could make it cheaper and make a profit lol

  • Do a deep water test like everything apple pro Where you put the Samsung s10 plus and the one plus 7 pro and put it in a paint can with holes and put it 25 feet than 50 feet until one if them cuts out

  • Sounds like you didn't really want to drop that phone in the water. You sounded way too nervous. lol

  • One & only oneplus.. Fastest and smoothest mobile phone in the world ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  • i heard there are many malfunctions in d one plus 7 pro?

    • Aishwarya Mathews bro its not water proof they just fucked us and lied to us

  • So fbi canโ€™t look at your face while beating ur meat anymore

  • Thanks for talking about Face unlock with the pop up camera! I thought about that issue as well but never heard someone talking about it. That might be the reason I will buy the 7 instead of the 7 Pro. Although I'm still waiting for a comparison between 7 and 7 Pro regarding the charging speed...

  • Water can't seep in while the phone is upside down

  • I'm looking at the 6t and the 7 pro. If I didn't want to spend the extra money does the 6t still hold up? I have a Moto g5s plus(hate)

    • The 6T is perfectly fine, the 6T is even too much power for the everage user. Ik using an op6 rn, still buttersmooth

  • I really want to see the op7 underwater with the front facing camera pop out

  • Ain't no nobody buying one plus over Samsung s10

  • Shoutout to lil dicky โ™ฅ

  • No one forcing you to buy the pro and not the 7? Um... The non-pro version isn't sold in the USA.

  • Disappointed. Review was not shot underwater

  • What game is that @12:16

  • 699 is cheap for the pro version. Price reflects quality in this superficial materialistic world

  • Boring..

  • Well, atleast your 7 pro survived the test. Mine didn't.

  • Myself:mom I want to say something to you.๐Ÿ˜ฐ Mom:go on.๐Ÿ˜Š Myself: I want to put my one plus 7 pro in water.๐Ÿ˜„ Mom:what.๐Ÿ˜ฌyou bitch.๐Ÿ˜ค Myself: just kidding mom.๐Ÿ˜จ

  • pls giv away to me

  • they have paid their dues, why can't they get a little bit of surcharge of their hard work? This is such a funny comment, they sold cheap stuff, and that they should continue to sell cheap stuff. You are thinking about this completely wrong.

  • Wallpaper?

  • I love the phone wouldn't mind if you could give me

  • Can you plz do water test for oppo Reno 10x

  • don't get me wrong, the review is amazing, but my biggest take-away is at 5:48, how those light tubes get propped up. :)

  • whAT CASE DO YOU RECOMMEND? I WISH THEY HAD MOUS.CO

  • I would like this video better if your voice and face weren't in it.

  • Face unlock is fast. What are you smoking

  • What app are you using for the edge screen apps?

  • Damn Dave stepping up his video game

  • I love my OnePlus 7 Pro!!! Everything about it is awesome. In my eyes, camera quality is really great, especially when taking pictures of food. Battery life is great. Absolutely love the design & Warp charge.

  • Was that a distilled water or normal water

  • how does this not have SOME sort of IP rating holy cow

    • IP ratings cost money to get the certifications for, so they made it water resistant but didn't get it "officially" certified to keep the cost under $700

  • What happened with your videos? What about computers? No more?

  • Face unlock is not secure and useless by definition. If someone gets your phone, he/she will have no problem unlocking it by just showing it your face. Most secure one is a passphrase. Even biometrics are not, anyone can you force you to put your finger to unlock it.

  • one plus 7 ??

  • Dave, you're so cute! ๐Ÿ˜ Good job on your video and review.

  • any screen issues ??

  • Looking to purchase another phone in the next day or two. I have a Samsung S8 plus, and without a case, it's nearly impossible to hold onto or touch things on the screen when you don't want to. The buttons are pretty touchy as well. Not a fan. Also, never fell into the Apple crowd. I'm a Verizon customer and looking for the best phone other than Apple or Samsung. Most important features that I use are simple internet browsing, need a decent camera and I only use speakerphone when talking. So microphone and speaker compatibility should be on point. Any suggestions?

  • Can i take underwater selfie??? With one plus 7 pro plz reply me brothers โค

  • Can you also do a water test of one plus 7 ????
