OnePlus 10 Pro Review: The best top in the range that does not do enough

OnePlus 10 Pro Review: The best top in the range that does not do enough

For its new flagship, OnePlus offers a three-module display. The first one shows 48 megapixels: this is the popular IMX789 sensor already on the OnePlus 9 Pro. Accompanied by the new 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module, the Samsung Isocell JN1. Finally, to complete the image, a 3.3x telephoto lens with an 8-megapixel sensor has been updated here. The 2-megapixel monochrome module on the OnePlus 9 Pro went missing this year. The partnership with Swedish Hasselblot, which was launched last year, will be renewed in 2022.

So the promise of this OnePlus 10 Pro does not seem to be revolutionary. We can even say that last year’s top model is similar to the one already offered. Let’s see if this is confirmed in the picture …

Main volume: 48 megapixels, f / 1.8, eq. 23 mm

Day by day, OnePlus offers a much different image than its direct competitor, the Xiaomi 12 Pro, and a much larger, more flattering color gauge and better controlled expression. However, the general tone of the film is very flat. It loses that hot page that was created by OnePlus 9 Pro last year.

At night, the trend is reversed. The photo of the 10 Pro, though more than perfect exposure, was highly processed with very strong smoothness. Xiaomi manages to give more sharpness to its image, which is especially noticeable at the end of the cover.

By full definition, the OnePlus 10 pro does not offer daytime variation. The photo taken is very delicate and the color scale is no longer uniform. At night, there is no change from the default 12 megapixel mode.

Ultra-wide-angle volume: 50 megapixels, f / 2.2, eq. 14 mm

This OnePlus 10 Pro’s new ultra-wide-angle sensor is less satisfying than last year, which is a shame. Like the wide angle, the color scale is very neutral, but the contrast is very weak and the lack of sharpness is obvious; The film is sadly softened.

In low light, the findings are relatively identical. Exposure is much better than competition, but software processing is here. It causes a sharp deficit due to the strong softness. Again, the color gauge is pretty cool.

50 megapixel mode

Like the wide-angle, the Ultra-wide angle of the OnePlus 10 Pro allows you to capture the full range (50 megapixels) shot. Unfortunately, this does not include anything in default mode (12.5 megapixels).

Telephoto volume: 8 megapixels, f / 2.4, eq. 77mm, 3.3x zoom

The observations mentioned in the previous two volumes are valid in this optical zoom. The zoom is definitely higher than Xiaomi, but the level of detail is not so important. The OnePlus 10 Pro has no variation and its color scale is not as flattering as its rival or previous model.

At night, the shot is completely crushed. The software processing is very robust, smoothing out our photo display completely.

Front module, portrait and video mode

On the front, OnePlus’s new flagship is equipped with a 32-megapixel module that delivers more than satisfactory performance. Color management is excellent. Hasselblad’s software performance is much lower than the main sensors on the back. For example, despite the visible smoothness when zooming in on the face, the light is well managed and the level of detail is good.

Portrait mode is also good. Ahead, one of the best results we have seen on Android. Clipping is great, the smartphone captures a whole thing without getting caught up in what it usually does not have (hair, beard, ears, glasses … to name a few). Bokeh is so awesome and not too compelling. We get good results with the main module. In short, the portrait mode of this OnePlus 10 Pro is excellent.

In video, the smartphone is capable of shooting at 120 fps in 4K or 24 fps in 8K (up to 30 fps on the OnePlus 9 Pro). Both the wide-angle module and the telephoto lens are equipped with optical stabilization (OIS), which makes the vibration almost invisible.
