Pros

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

Cons

  • Lacks new standout features
  • No IP68 rating

Some think the OnePlus 8 could have used a mid-range processor to start closer to a $500 price. However, at $699, it is the least expensive 5G phone available today with flagship specs commonly found in $1,000 phones.

  • Support for low-band and mid-band 5G
  • 90 Hz display
  • Ample RAM and fast internal storage
  • Stunning color options
  • Responsive Oxygen OS UI

Cons

  • No wireless charging

OnePlus has successfully made its case: that it can compete with the best devices from the biggest manufacturers. That phone’s the OnePlus 8 Pro, and it’s a beast—easily among the best Android devices on the market right now. Go check out our review here if you want the skinny on that device.

Pros

  • OxygenOS software
  • Bright, fast screen
  • Good battery life

Cons

  • No wireless charging
  • Camera is merely okay
  • Same price as many competitors, with fewer features

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 cameras and a better-yet screen, look to the Pro model, otherwise this one is just super as it stands.Read full verdict

  • Top-drawer processor means oodles of power

Cons

  • 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

OnePlus has brought its A game with the OnePlus 8. A gorgeous design, excellent build quality and powerful performance help it go toe to toe with the big boys, while the cheaper price point helps drive the point home. Easily one of the best mid-range smartphones there is.
