OnePlus 10 Pro first review: the second-generation Hasselblad image is very strong, but it also ordered a new skill tree?

The new Snapdragon 8 platform, I heard that everyone has it?
What can the second generation of LTPO do?
And that dual OIS, X-axis linear motor, something special?
can not tell.
Also "Da grinder"…. What have you grinded?

This is Zhou Xun's question to Boss Zhang in the warm-up video of OnePlus 10 Pro.

The video is interesting and so are the questions. After the sharp question, the video gave a line: "One Plus flagship that can withstand questioning".

The word "interrogation" is mixed with emotion. As the media, ask questions, not questions.

Since I got the OnePlus 10 Pro for a week, the question sentences in my draft have become declarative sentences with the experience.

But see the unforgettable look

"Three points depend on parameters, and seven points depend on polishing." In the parameter world, OnePlus has put the focus of the 10th generation flagship product on "polishing", that is, "experience".

OnePlus is right. The parameters determine the lower limit of the user experience, and the upper limit depends on polishing and optimization.

In terms of parameters, the configuration of OnePlus 10 Pro is similar to that of several recently released flagships:

Snapdragon 8 processor
LPDDR5 + UFS3.1
6.7-inch 2K 120Hz LTPO 2.0 screen
80W wired fast charging + 50W wireless fast charging + wireless reverse charging
5000mAh large battery customized X-axis linear motor second generation Hasselblad imaging system

Are the parameters all familiar? This is the problem that mobile phone manufacturers are currently facing: the mobile phone space is so large, and there are so many suppliers.

How to differentiate flagship products when core hardware such as processors, screens, and camera sensors are almost the same?

One is based on appearance, and the other is based on polishing and adjustment, including algorithms, system software and so on.

In terms of appearance, the recognition of the OnePlus 10 Pro should be the highest in recent generations. I don't know if the designer's inspiration came from the four cylinders in mahjong or the square metal folding parts.

Ridiculous to ridicule. Regardless of the beauty and ugliness, this bold and pioneering design really makes the OnePlus 10 Pro have an unforgettable quality.

The surface material of the rear lens module is not glass or metal, but 3D nanocrystalline ceramics. The production cycle is said to be as long as 25 days.

In terms of protective performance, the strength is high enough, and it is visually shiny and gorgeous. However, the treatment of the black mirror surface is easy to contaminate fingerprints.

If you look closely, it is not bent and spliced ​​to the middle frame. The metal material of the middle frame extends to the lens module, and actively "welcomes" the ceramic material. Guess this design is to enhance the anti-fall performance.

The OnePlus 10 Pro comes in two colors: Boundless Black and All Things Green. Although the material of the back cover is glass, the craftsmanship is different. Boundary Black is a "Silk Craft" 3.0 process, which is similar to the OnePlus 9RT in terms of vision and touch.

The AG process of OnePlus mobile phone can be regarded as the memory point of the brand. The hand feels delicate, and it is not easy to get fingerprints. With a thickness of 8.55mm and a weight of 200g, the feel of the OnePlus 10 Pro continues the excellence of the previous generation.

You are responsible for winning, I am responsible for stability

For the flagship, "bucket machine" has become a compliment, which means that there are no obvious shortcomings, and there are no major regrets in games, images, and daily use.

OnePlus 9 Pro and Hasselblad have teamed up to create the top imaging student of 2021. However, its gaming experience cannot be regarded as a flagship level, so it is called "partial student".

The positioning of OnePlus 10 Pro has changed compared with the previous generation, and it is determined to be "the best performance flagship for gaming".

Judging from the benchmark results, the OnePlus 10 Pro in performance mode is on par with other new Snapdragon 8 flagships.

In fact, at the moment when the new Snapdragon 8 + LPDDR5 + UFS3.1 has become the standard configuration of the new flagship in 2022, there is no need to worry about performance. The real competition in the gaming experience is temperature control, frame rate stability, and personalized service.

In terms of temperature, what you care about is not how large the area of ​​heat dissipation material is or how delicate the stacking of the heat dissipation system is, but how the measured results perform.

In the game assistant, you can choose from three modes: low power mode, balanced mode, and gaming mode. The performance release of the gaming mode is the largest, but the heat generation will also be relatively high.

In the e-sports mode, we tested "Honor of Kings" for 30 minutes and "Genshin Impact" for 30 minutes, and observed its temperature changes when the picture quality was full.

In the two games, the maximum temperature of the mobile phone is 38 ℃ and 43.5 ℃ respectively. The heat source is mainly concentrated near the camera module and on the top frame.

Frame rate is the key point emphasized at the OnePlus 10 Pro conference. It claims that it took two years to develop a new "HyperBoost full-link game frame stabilization technology", which is said to achieve a stable frame rate, fast startup, and cool gaming experience.

Sound incomprehensible? Let's try it out. The same is "King of Glory" and "Yuan Shen", the picture quality options are all pulled to the highest, play for 30 minutes respectively, and see its frame rate fluctuations.

After the e-sports mode is turned on, the frame rate of "Honor of Kings" is 90FPS throughout the whole process, which is very stable. "Genshin Impact" fluctuates between 45-50FPS most of the time, with an average frame rate of 47FPS for half an hour, and the overall picture is relatively smooth.

The third point is personalized service. On the game application interface, swipe left to call out the game assistant, which has multiple dessert-level functions. Like my commonly used "full immersion mode", "extreme frame stabilization", "4D vibration sense" and so on.

▲ Game assistant interface display

Among them, "4D vibration sense" is very helpful to improve the game feel. The X-axis custom motor of OnePlus 10 Pro is 14% larger than the previous generation, and the vibration volume is said to be the largest among Android phones at present.

In terms of experience, first of all, you will feel that the vibration is obvious, followed by more vibration gears and more effects. At present, in "Honor of Kings" and "Peace Elite" that have been adapted, every time you kill, every time you fire, you can feel interesting and real vibration feedback.

As far as the gaming experience is concerned, the OnePlus 10 Pro is indeed worthy of the self-proclaimed "game flagship".

How did the second generation of Hasselblad Imaging perform?

From the point of view of parameters, the lens of OnePlus 10 Pro has no surprising upgrade compared with the previous generation. It is a pity that the ultra-wide-angle lens composed of the previous generation IMX766 + free-form surface lens has not been extended to the new product.

The sensor of the main camera lens is still a custom IMX789 sensor with a size of 1/1.43. The telephoto lens with 3.3x optical zoom supports OIS optical image stabilization.

Also worth mentioning is the ring flash, which is really bright. Whether it’s photo fill light or lighting, it’s a practical upgrade.

Hasselblad's iconic "click" sound on the OnePlus 9 Pro makes every time you press the shutter, a ceremonial record.

The OnePlus 10 Pro continues this feature and jointly launched the "Hasselblad Natural Color 2.0" with Hasselblad. Simply put, the colors are more realistic.

From the main photo, it can be observed that the OnePlus 10 Pro has richer color levels, stronger expressiveness, and more three-dimensional images than the previous generation.

In terms of imaging quality, the main camera of the OnePlus 10 Pro is better than the previous generation. Not only are the colors more accurate, but the zoomed-in picture is also more detailed, with much less noise.

The main camera has improved significantly, and the ultra-wide-angle lens is very enviable.

The ultra-wide angle of the OnePlus 10 Pro belongs to that kind of "beauty at first sight". It looks pretty at first glance, but doesn't stand up to scrutiny. Zoom in to see more pronounced sharpening and smearing.

The advantage is that it supports a 150° field of view, and you can shoot a special viewing angle full of tension.

Compared with the previous generation, the imaging quality of the telephoto lens has not improved significantly, and the changes are mainly concentrated in the color tendency.

However, the addition of OIS optical image stabilization is higher than the previous generation in terms of film formation rate. To put it simply, it is to shoot more steadily, which can resist the blurring of the picture caused by hand shake.

If you are a photography enthusiast, then I strongly recommend using the "Pro Mode" to adjust the parameters by yourself, and you will have more fun in taking pictures.

One plus 10 Pro's professional mode has a big improvement, which is to support manual control of three lenses. In the previous generation, only the main camera supported professional mode.

In addition, it also brings the "Super RAW+" format, which simply adds computational photography to the RAW format, making photos with a larger dynamic range and less noise. Similar to the iPhone's AppleProRAW format.

But if you want to turn on the professional mode, you need to open it in "More" on the camera page, which is slightly cumbersome. OnePlus 9 Pro can be used on the first-level page, which is more friendly to video enthusiasts.

There is another obvious change in the image of OnePlus 10 Pro, which is to support the shooting, storage and display of 10bit photos. The biggest benefit is to make photos richer in color and smoother transitions.

On the whole, the OnePlus 10 Pro, which focuses on performance, has a fairly satisfactory level of imaging capabilities compared to the previous generation. After all, the definition of products has changed, and there will naturally be trade-offs.

Balanced everyday experience

In addition to games and images, the self-cultivation of the "bucket machine" should cover all aspects of daily experience.

The first is the screen, after all, it is the window through which we interact with our phone. The quality of the screen has always been one of the sources of word of mouth for OnePlus. The OnePlus 10 Pro is no exception.

2K resolution, 120Hz LTPO adaptive refresh rate screen, 10bit color depth, 1300nit peak brightness… There are no regrets in the parameters, and the look and feel is as good as ever.

The main upgrade lies in the switching strategy of the refresh rate. OnePlus 10 Pro is equipped with LTPO 2.0 technology. When you swipe the screen with your finger, the refresh rate soars to 120Hz. When watching videos, the refresh rate switches to 60Hz or 30Hz.

When the page is still and there is no animation, the screen can be reduced to a minimum of 1Hz to save power. Changes in refresh rate are quick and smooth, with no sense of fragmentation.

In addition to the look and feel of the screen, battery life is also an important part of the daily experience.

The OnePlus 10 Pro packs a large 5000mAh battery into the 200g body. There is no problem with daily bright screen use for 5-6 hours.

Compared with the previous generation, the charging speed has been improved, and the 80W wired charging can be charged from 0 to 100% in half an hour. It also supports 50W wireless fast charging and 10W wireless reverse charging.

On the system, OnePlus 10 Pro brings the official version of ColorOS 12.1. No bugs have been found so far, and it is stable and smooth. A system-level free translation function has been added, which can translate into 8 languages ​​for full screen or partial.

Another fun feature is the Omoji Personal Avatar, which can be set into the Always On Display (AOD) to add some fun and personality to the lock screen.

Finally, the fingerprint unlocking experience is greatly improved compared to the previous generation. Although it is also the fingerprint under the optical screen, the position is higher, and it is more convenient to hold and unlock normally.

summary

As early as 2020, Liu Zuohu, the founder and CEO of OnePlus, returned to OPPO as the chief product experience officer of OnePlus. Everyone already knows what happened later. OnePlus also returned to OPPO and used the ColorOS system.

As an independent brand under OPPO, OnePlus needs to figure out how to differentiate the OnePlus digital flagship from the OPPO Find flagship.

This is difficult, not only difficult to dance under the same roof, wearing "fetters". It is also difficult in the market environment, the homogenization of flagship phones is serious.

OnePlus 10 Pro is their latest thinking: "the best performance flagship for gaming".

For users who were once attracted by the OnePlus system, images and other characteristics, this change may be a little uncomfortable.

Just like our adult road, there will always be a period of unrestrained adolescence. For the 9-year-old OnePlus, it may now be in the throes of growth.

In this process, exploration and transformation are common. However, people will always grow up and brands will always mature. After continuous testing and correction, what kind of products will OnePlus produce in the future? I'll wait and see.
