The portrait mode has given lot of attention and improved you can take portrait shots with both main and telephoto cameras and the night mode is also improved not the best but still it’s a good improvement. You can even you the night mode with ultra wide camera. There is a Little bit of colour shift when you switch between the cameras but for the price it’s acceptable ( not a big concern).

And it also does not have some features like wireless charging and QHD display but for the price it’s a good deal. If you thinking of upgrading from ONEPLUS 6 or 5 or have a budget around 40000 for a new phone then it is a good choice. But for existing ONEPLUS 7 users we suggest you to wait for ONEPLUS 7T PRO.
