From India Today Tech: The OnePlus 10 Pro is proof that OnePlus listens to user feedback and tries to translate that input into compelling products. That’s what we found in our review when we recommended the phone. Now the OnePlus 10 Pro recently got a new price in India which makes this phone all the more appealing.
For anyone who’s been keeping their cash to pick up a flagship phone at a relatively cheaper price (if you look at Apple), the OnePlus 10 Pro is a no-brainer.
For comparison, the current price of the OnePlus 10 Pro is Rs 61,999 for the base 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while the top-tier 12GB RAM + 256GB storage option is now priced at Rs 66,999 in India. So does it make sense to buy the OnePlus 10 Pro now? It does. And here are 5 reasons why this phone is absolutely worth buying.
1- A beautiful 120Hz display
The OnePlus 10 Pro sports a beautiful 6.7-inch QHD+ Curved AMOLED display that refreshes at variable 120Hz and offers 10-bit color. Technical jargon aside, rest assured that this panel will not disappoint in any way – whether for watching movies or just staring at the screen. In addition, OnePlus has paid special attention to the color calibration of the phone’s vibrant panel. Additionally, thanks to Widevine L1 certification, you get features like HDR10 video playback support and Full HD video playback support.
Well, that’s a curved display, of course, and we’re sure a bunch of people won’t find it that handy. However, if you’re someone who doesn’t mind a curved display on their phone, which by the way just adds to a phone’s character and looks, we bet you won’t be disappointed in this case. Both in terms of aesthetics and the display quality itself.
2- Clean software experience
While we understand the clean software experience you get with stock Android on Google Pixel phones, OnePlus’ take on software has always been to offer an enhanced stock Android experience, but only with thoughtful and necessary additions . In fact, OxygenOS has struck the perfect balance between stock Android and other custom ROMs that you get from other phone manufacturers.
Additionally, we were also impressed with the OnePlus 10 Pro’s fast and snappy performance thanks to the OxygenOS software. And if you want to know more about our in-depth experience with the OnePlus 10 Pro, be sure to read the full review. In summary, however, you get a fast and smooth software experience, and the best part is that you get 3 years of Android OS updates with this phone and the latest Android 13 update has already rolled out.
3- Raw power, courtesy of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
The OnePlus 10 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, and while there’s now the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC in a handful of phones like the OnePlus 10T 5G, the Gen 1 still packs a solid punch.
Paired with plenty of RAM and some nifty features like dedicated cooling, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip makes the OnePlus 10 Pro a top performer. Think of a task and the phone can do it. From running general day-to-day things like browsing the web, checking social media, or taking calls, to handling graphics-intensive titles like Genshin Impact and Apex Legends, the OnePlus 10 Pro can do it all.
4- Lightning fast charging – wired and wireless
Many ultra-premium flagships these days come with large batteries, but don’t charge as quickly. Then there are a few phones that come with super-fast charging but not as big batteries. The OnePlus 10 Pro not only has a large 5,000 mAh battery, but also fast charging – both wired and wireless.
The OnePlus 10 Pro has fast 50W wireless charging, and it does so in a world where many phones don’t even offer such charging speeds with wired technology (if you look at your iPhone and Pixel), let alone wireless. Even more impressively, the OnePlus 10 Pro also supports fast 80W wired charging, and luckily you get the charger in the box.
5- A versatile camera system
It’s not the best, but certainly one of the best. The OnePlus 10 Pro offers a versatile and powerful camera system. For the phone, OnePlus has teamed up with Hasselblad, a leading camera company, to offer additional finesse in camera and color matching.
In particular, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s 48-megapixel main camera can deliver pleasing results that easily rival Pixels and iPhones of this world. Additionally, the camera app is packed with features like Pro mode, RAW photo capture, Portrait mode, and more.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is a brilliant phone and while it may seem pricey compared to the OnePlus 10T, there are areas where it’s subtly better. The little things, like a finer display and design with higher-quality materials, a camera system with more expensive parts, make the OnePlus 10 Pro a phone you’ll appreciate and admire more.
So if you’re looking for a flagship phone with sturdy build and good looks, a versatile camera system, a gorgeous display, reliable endurance, and fast charging without burning a hole in your pocket, then this is for you!
