OnePlus 8 Review | Trusted Reviews


The OnePlus 8 is one of the first 5G phones you don't have to pay a scary amount for. It is one of the most affordable 5G phones around.

5G with no massive price hike;Top-end processor;Rich, bright OLED screen

Rubbish macro camera;No optical zoom;Still missing wireless charging and an IP rating

As the cheaper OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 8 doesn't have as many features. But it succeeds at keeping the ones that matter.

OnePlus 8 Review


Most affordable 5G phone ; Lovely screen ; Fast performance ; Elegant software

Camera not quite as good as more expensive phones ; Lacks millimeter-wave 5G on T-Mobile ; No wireless charging

The OnePlus 8 delivers 5G flagship performance at a fair price, making it the right phone to buy for a new network in an economically uncertain time.

OnePlus 8 review: familiar formula


A great screen and great battery life meet a so-so camera.

90Hz display ; Great battery life ; Solid performance

Camera quality could still be better ; No wireless charging ; No IP rating (on the unlocked model)

So the big question if you want to buy a OnePlus device is whether a $200 price premium is worth it for a slightly better camera, an IP rating, and wireless charging. If it’s not, then the OnePlus 8 is a great option.

OnePlus 8 review: Android's mid-range champ has less bang for more bucks


The OnePlus 8 adds $100 to the cost of the 7T and ups the specs, but misses the mark on value.

Fantastic speed and battery life. ; Very nice design with an excellent display ; OxygenOS continues to impress

Not much of an improvement over the 7T ; 5G drives the price up with little benefit. ; Starting price is $100 higher than the previous model's

The OnePlus 8 is caught between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, it’s $200 cheaper than the OnePlus 8 Pro, which makes it a compelling option for someone on a bit of a budget. On the other hand, it’s $200 more than the recently reduced OnePlus 7T,...

OnePlus 8 review


£50 extra for 5G is a no brainer

Excellent power and performance ; 5G (and no massive price hike) ; 2020 curves

Camera not as versatile as last time around

OnePlus gets over the 5G upgrade hump in style. The camera’s no better, it’s worse in one way, but we get a style upgrade and an only slight jump in cost.

OnePlus 8 review: Mean green flagship machine


The initial entry-level to OnePlus' 2020 line-up, the OP8, as we're calling it, beefs up its feature set - but costs a little more than typical too.

Gorgeous finish - and not a fingerprint magent for once ; Strong battery life easily lasts a day ; Smooth software with useful gaming mode too ; Top-drawer processor means oodles of power

Cameras aren't leading ; Excessive contrast at low brightness ; 90Hz of questionable benefit ; No wireless charging ; Would like a non-5G version to cut price down

Sure, it's pricier than its predecessors, but this handset continues to deliver a flagship experience that costs hundreds less than an equivalent from most others. That's OnePlus' big selling point, delivered time and again. If you want more from the...

OnePlus 8 review


The OnePlus 8 is the best affordable flagship yet for 2020: triple-rear cameras, impressive specs, and 5G connectivity.

Affordable 5G connectivity Impressive specs Big 4,300mAh battery

No telephoto camera No wireless charging Price hike over predecessor

The OnePlus 8 sets the bar high for affordable flagships in 2020. 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...

OnePlus 8 review: A faultless next-gen flagship killer


Minor changes, spiralling prices and an increasingly crowded market – the OnePlus 8 has a difficult road ahead

Colour accurate 90Hz screen ; Second-best battery life we’ve tested ; 5G for less

Lacks new standout features ; No IP68 rating

Fixing the problems of last year’s phone, while simultaneously improving almost every aspect, the OnePlus 8 instead demonstrates that a twice-yearly phone launch doesn’t need to add new features to be worthy of admiration. Excelling in all areas, a...
