The best smartphone company you've never heard of just schooled Apple and Samsung in how to make a premium phone with the new OnePlus 7 Pro
- The $670 OnePlus 7 Pro is so good, and so much cheaper than the iPhone XS and Galaxy S10, that it makes a bit of a mockery of Apple and Samsung.
- The biggest thing that sets the OnePlus 7 Pro apart is its screen, which displays the Android operating system and apps incredibly smoothly. It makes a bigger impact than gimmicky features in recent premium flagships.
- OnePlus also took the risk of ditching the iPhone-style notch and Samsung-style selfie camera cutout by using an unproven popup selfie camera system.
- In no uncertain terms, the OnePlus 7 Pro completely outshines the competition based on its price, design, and performance.

Phone maker OnePlus usually makes comparatively inexpensive premium smartphones that are as good as the more expensive flagship devices from big companies like Apple and Samsung.
With the recently-announced $670 OnePlus 7 Pro, the company just taught Apple and Samsung a lesson in how to build premium smartphones from now on. The phone will be available on May 17th from the OnePlus website and T-Mobile - though if you buy it straight from OnePlus, it'll work on AT&T or Verizon, as well as T-Mobile.Instead of one-upping Apple or Samsung with specs or design, OnePlus thought outside the box and gave the OnePlus 7 Pro a new, buttery-smooth screen that makes a significantly bigger impact than some of the more gimmicky features I've seen in recent (and pricier) phones.
On top of the smooth display, OnePlus also figured out how to completely ditch the iPhone-style notch or the Samsung-style selfie camera cutout, with a clever - but unproven - pop-up camera system.
In no uncertain terms, OnePlus completely outshines its competition.
The OnePlus 7 Pro goes on sale on May 17, but I got to check it out early:
