    So the title says it all with everyone in this form who has the 7t or 7t pro 5G McLaren.

    Research and seeing what's new on the 8 and 8 pro. What does everyone think so far would you upgrade to it or wait till the 8t wait for OnePlus 9?

    I have the 7t and probably will go for the blue 8 pro 12gb/256 model

    I have bever had. One Plus phone but if I had that perfectly unbroken screen I wouldn't want to trade it for one with a hole punch in it. I don't mind the hole punch in the S10+ but I do like the fullscreen of the One Plus 7 Pro

    all very insightful answers. after looking at the specs and research. the OnePlus 8 pro is a great phone. but I agree I had the 7t pro 5G McLaren and I love The unbroken screen. I really like the pop up camera wish they would did not go away with that.

    I think the 7t pro has a pretty good camera with the last couple of weeks they did. I think I'm going to wait and see what the OnePlus 9 is going to be.

    Thats one reason I won't give up my 1+7P full screen and the pop up camera

    Unfortunately, I will not be getting either of them. I love the 8 pro, but non of the carriers are going to sell it. I don't want to buy it through OnePlus and I dont want to settle for the 8. I guess I will sit this one out.

    Not a chance. The camera quality while better doesn't seem to compete with Pixel or iPhone. Besides I can't imagine people would spend flagship level (not specific to OnePlus) this year due to the economy/losing jobs. Who knows, I'm probably wrong though!

    I have the One+7T. The 8/8P are not enough of an upgrade to get me to buy at those prices

    As bad as I want the 1+8pro I'll pass as I have the Samsung S20 Ultra as I understand Samsung made the screen panel for the 1+8pro which is way too curved at the edges unlike the Ultra...my son is sticking with his great 6t for that reason too...

    Well the one plus 8 pros going to be sold on Amazon. So you don't have to have to purchase through OnePlus.

    Have you seen the camera on the one plus April actually seems really good and almost on par very very close to the iPhone and pixel. I actually have the OnePlus 7t pro McLaren 5g. And it takes some phenomenal pictures and is actually fairly close to the pixel after they've done some updates to it. I'm very happy with my camera on my current phone. But that's why I'm going to be waiting until the OnePlus 9. And the OnePlus 8 series is at least $300 cheaper than Samsung phones with basically the same amount of specs.

    1+7 pro user here. I love my full screen without holes. Pop-up camera was a fantastic idea, shame that they scraped in the 1+8. 120hz vs 90hz is not a big upgrade and camera, I barely use it. Happy with my 7pro.

    I agree, why they got rid of it can't understand it works great .

    I'd get the OnePlus 8 Pro if it sold through carriers but it's not. I want the carrier financing. I hate paying upfront.

    The "unbroken screen" - what a poetic way to put that. You have a very good point.

    For those on T-Mobile, the OnePlus 7Pro is currently listed at $450. I think that's a better buy than the OnePlus 8, especially if you don't care for 5G right now.

    The 8 pro is very tempting to get. But coming from 1+ 7 pro and having the full screen and what seems to me at least the same cameras not so sure it justifies the $300+ price tag just for newer processor and slightly better cameras and wireless charging and official ip 68 rating and a huge minus a hole punch crap in display.

    Reliability, weight, and the space the module takes up inside the phone.

    Oh , did they put something more usefull in the place where the pop up mechanism was ? That phone does come with a pretty big size battery 4,000mah.

    I was interested in the OnePlus 7 Pro but was afraid that I'd break the pop-up camera! But it does look really nifty.

    It's a great phone , so far no issues with the pop up and it does retract while sensing a fall but I guess if it's a very fast fall might not fully go in , in time .

    I have yet to see anyone have any complaints about the pop up cam breaking
