      Damn Linus, you planted the doubt seed in my head, I had already decided for the note 10+

        Cristuuu I’d go with the oneplus, its very fast, software is more frequently updated, very good screen size, notchless screen, it’s overall much more value for the phone than the already overpriced note10+. Hope I helped

      i doesnt carry a water rating because they didnt pay for one.. but it's still waterproof.. i have one.. i tried it... cost saving measures like there is what gave them an edge on final pricing

        Is the 8gb worth the extra money? I mostly stream content, listen to music and read on my phone. The only games I kinda play are Pokemon go and mobile legends.

                                Isn’t Samsung’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensor better? Can’t it still detect the right fingerprint even if you’re a bit sweaty?

                                  i still run a oneplus 3T and it has been running very strong for over 2 years now. the fingerprint sensor is almost instant, the response time on just about everything is still super fast. it slows down a bit when i have a lot running on it but that is to be expected. i cant stress this enough oneplus is worth its money to me. just about any phone after 2 years wouldn't be this fast still. i love it and wont upgrade until it breaks on me. then i will go with the newest oneplus

                                                  I actually hate gorilla glass on the back-- Its like doubling up the fragility of a phone just to make it look pretty (when clean) and double up the finger prints most of the time, Unless you always wear gloves.

                                                    Yeah, unfortunately that's what's considered "premium" right now, so every aspiring flagship device has to have it.

                                                  i own a galaxy s10+. it takes less than a second to unlock it with finger print when the screen is of. it's even faster with face recognition. i just look at the screen without touching any buttons and it immediately responds.
                                                  edit: this entire video is lazy, like the task switcher for example. it's obvious that he didn't take the time to configure the competitors

                                                    will there come a time where the phones slightly below premium will get fast wireless charging?

                                                      Fingerprint unlocking test is a bit inaccurate for the s10+. You don't need to hold your finger on the screen until it unlocks. If you quickly tap the screen with your finger it will unlock much faster. Also with the s10+ you can unlock with the screen off. If you can do this with the other phones then just ignore the last sentence.

                                                        Thanks Linus... I was almost buying this device but not being waterproof poses a real issue to my outdoors activities... :(

                                                          To be honest, "waterproof" is just a marketing thing and a bit of a precaution in case you do get it wet anyway. I learned this with my Samsung watch which is advertised as safe to swim in. Wore it out in the rain a couple of times and it got water damage, which still voided the warranty (I argued til I was blue in the face that they should cover their advertised use, but they were having none of it). This is probably the case for most/all manufacturers. IP ratings are not worth the paper they're written on - don't use any phone (or smartwatch etc) in the rain, simple

                                                        I mean. Yeah not "cheap" as such. But it is still so cheap compared to apple and samsung, and you get a much more powerful phone for that price than you would ever get from samsung and apple.

                                                            Well the Readmi K20 Pro have a really good value, but OP7 PRO is well worth the price. The display, oxygenOS, the camera and the fact that OnePlus have a good track record of updating their software, are all reasons to go with OP7 PRO. I really miss the headphone jack though...

It in no way competes with a 10" screen, a 40" screen, or a 95" screen. So stop using the word for something so tiny. Just say, that the screen covers most of or all of the front facing surface of the phone because that is what is actually correct. And please stop creating videos that sound more like an advertisement for a phone than a review of it. By all means make the videos entertaining, we like that, but please tell us if it it good value for money and compare it with similar devices at various prices. That is what makes a review useful. For example how does the 1+ 7 compare with a Redmi Note 7, a K20, or a Huawei Mate 20 Max, or even a Samsung Galaxy A50.
