What’s up guys, Saf here on SuperSaf TV and we’ve got the brandnew OnePlus 8 in the house. There’s the OnePlus 8, as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Let’s go ahead and get these in box, do a detail comparison andlook at all the key differences as well as look at some camera samples. So the boxes look exactly the same. We’ve got red boxes withthe eight logo here. On one side we’ve got the OnePlus logo, and then on this sidewe’ve got the OnePlus 8 as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro logos. These are completely sealed,so let’s get rid of the plastic and let’s unbox these SuperSaf style. And there we go. The unboxing experience isvery similar for both of these. We do get some paper work including some of these funky stickers. They’re quite cool. I’ve got here, my friendscall me for tech support. Nice, I like that. Safety information, quick starter guide. There’s a note here from Pete, the CEO and founder of OnePlus, always nice with that personal touch. Then we have a clearcase with both devices. I quite like this,actually has “Never Settle” on the case itself. There’s the traditional redUSB 8 to USB type C cable, and then we’ve got the OnePlusWarp Charge 30T charger, which does have a maximumoutput of 30 watts for charging, very fast and this issupported on both devices. And now let’s have a lookat the phones themselves. Plastic off. I am really liking this color. It’s got a mad back andthis is the glacial green. On the OnePlus 8, there’salso an onyx black version available which is glossy here in the UK, and in other markets, notin the UK, I’m not sure why, there is an interstellar glow. That looks really, reallydope, but unfortunately we’re not going to be gettingit in the UK, not now anyway. Moving onto the OnePlus 8 Pro, you notice that the plastic has this symbol at the back which indicates that the OnePlus 8 Pro does have wireless charging. We’ll talk about that a little bit later.

The OnePlus 8 does not. Now the OnePlus 8 Pro is alsoin this glacial green color with this matt-frosted backwhich looks so, so nice. It does have a bit of a two tone effect which I’m really, really liking. And as with the OnePlus 8, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also available in a glossy onyx black color as well as an ultramarine blue. Once again, that ultramarine blue color is not available in the UK. I don’t know why but I’ve been told that it’s not going to beavailable in the UK unfortunately. Now in either case, you canalways customize the look of your OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro with a skin from ourchannel sponsor, D Brad. They have a huge varietyof different skins, but my favorite right now is definitely tear down of the skin, which kind of gives you a preview of the inside of the device. Looks very, very unique. It’s been made in partnershipwith my good friend Zach from Jerry Rig everything. If you do want to pick one of them up, I’ll be leaving a linkin the description below. Now the OnePlus 8 Pro for the first time in OnePlus’s history does have an IP68 waterand dust resistant rating. This is something OnePlusdon’t usually have to save on cost. And the OnePlus 8 is wherethey are saving cost. And the OnePlus 8 although they have said that it should be generally watertight, it doesn’t have an official IP68 water and dust resistance rating. Now generally speaking, as you can see, both devices have a very,very similar design. We’ve got a center camera module. There are obviously some differences in the cameras, which we’ll talk about a little bit later. But the biggest differencein in terms of the size, the OnePlus 8 is theoverall smaller device in terms of height, the width, as well as the thickness and it’s also around19 or 20 grams lighter, so it is going to be the morecomfortable device to hold. However, the OnePlus 8 Pro is larger because it has a larger and much better display.

So the OnePlus 8 Pro doeshave a 6.78 inch display versus the 6.55 inchdisplay on the OnePlus 8. Now both of us is of fluid AMOLED devices, colors are great, HDR10+ is supported. However, the OnePlus 8 Prodoes have a high resolution, so it’s got a higher PPI pixel density and it also has a higher refresh rate., 120 Hertz versus 90Hertz on the OnePlus 8. Now this is not to say that the OnePlus 8 is a bad display, it’s a really, really good display, but the OnePlus 8 Pro has one of the best displaysin the market right now. Now, one thing that I have noticed is that although both devicesdo have a curb bright display, the OnePlus 8 is not as curved compared to the OnePlus 8 Pro. So how much of a difference is it from 90 Hertz to 120 Hertz? Well, I wouldn’t saythat it is as significant as going from 60 to 90 Hertz, but it’s definitely noticeable. And what’s more noticeable is the fact that the OnePlus 8 Prodoes have a 240 Hertz touch responsive rate. So that just makes things feel that much smootherand that much faster. That’s what she said. But anyway, as well asthat the OnePlus 8 Pro does have MEMC which stands for motion estimation as well asmotion compensation technology. This is essentially going tomake regular frame rate videos say around 24 to 30 frames a second seem like they are at a higher frame rates by reducing motion blurring things up. Tom Cruise will not be happy about that, but if that’s something that you’re into, you do have these options here. You’ve also got HDR boosts, which is going to kind of enhance colors.

These are going to be compatible with Netflix, YouTube, Amazon prime, so a lot of these appsare going to be supported. And there is a big, bigemphasis on the display of the OnePlus 8 Pro, which is really, really good. We’ve got an in display, a fingerprint scanneron both devices as well And as expected, it is very, very fast. Still not always on display however, so I’m a little bitdisappointed about that. Now let’s address this punch out. So last year OnePlus didnot have a punch out, they had a popup camera and it was something that OnePlus fans were very, very Proud offrom what I could see. And this year, OnePlus have kind of a gonemaybe a step backwards. Some would say, by having this punch outs. Now this is to make thesedevices more watertight. So as you know, the OnePlus 8Pro does have the IP rating. Now, personally speaking, I don’t mind it too much, you may do. Let me know in the commentsbelow which you prefer, a pop out or a punch out. So let’s talk about the punchout front facing camera. This is the same on bothdevices, it’s 16 megapixels. It can only film 1080Pat 30 frames a second. Unfortunately there is no 4K. And in terms of the picturesthat come out of these, they’re pretty decent. You’ve got good dynamic range. The portrait mode alsoseems to work pretty well. I still do think however, that OnePlus devices from the selfie mode do kind of brighten up yourskin a little bit more, make you look fairerthan you actually are. That’s something that Iwould like to see improve with the software updates, but let’s talk aboutthe rear facing cameras where we do have somesignificant differences. So the OnePlus 8 has aprimary 48 megapixel camera. This is the same sensor that we saw on theOnePlus 8 Pro last year. We also have a 16megapixel ultra wide camera as well as a two megapixel macro camera. Now on the OnePlus 8 Pro, we do have a new sensor. This is the Sony IMX689, it’s a larger sensor of size. It’s the largest sensor size for a 48 megapixel camera at the moment. And the ultra wide camerais also 48 megapixels and it’s using the sensor that we’ve got on the primary camera of the OnePlus 8, whichis quite interesting.

We then have a telephoto camera that’s going to give youthree times optical zoom and up to 30 times digital zoom. And finally we have a fivemegapixel color filter camera. Now let me just say thatthis color filter camera is very weird because itdoesn’t really seem to do much other than applying a filter to your pictures which are, you know, generally youcan do in post anyways, so I can’t really see myself using this. But looking at the cameraside by side in good lighting both to do perform pretty well. I would say that the OnePlus 8 Pro does have a bit more contrast. When it comes to the ultra wide, the OnePlus 8 Pro doeshave a wider camera, which I do prefercompared to the OnePlus 8. The OnePlus 8 Pro of coursedoes have the optical zoom, so zoom is much betteron the OnePlus 8 Pro. This is definitely a lot more noticeable when you go to around 10 times. I also noticed that the OnePlus 8 Pro does have overall better dynamic range compared the OnePlus 8 but where you’ll noticethe biggest difference is in low light. The OnePlus 8 Pro thanksto its larger sensor size, does capture more lights, so low light images are much, much betteron the OnePlus 8 Pro. Now although we’ve got a dedicated macro camera on the OnePlus 8, you can still take macroshots on the OnePlus 8 Pro and get in very, very closeusing the ultra wide camera. Now the results on here also much better because you’ve got aremuch higher resolution. In my opinion, the macroshots on the OnePlus 8 because they just twomegapixels aren’t very usable. Now for video, bothdevices can film at up to 4K 60 frames a second. On the OnePlus 8 Pro however, you do get that zoom, which is optical versus the digital zoom. So it’s much better. But you’ve also got a threemic setup on the OnePlus 8 which gives you betteraudio as well as audio zoom. And there is also an HDR mode for video, which gives you betterdynamic range in video. So overall it’s very clearto see that the OnePlus 8 Pro just has much better camerascompared to the OnePlus 8. Now, of course we really have to see how the OnePlus 8 Pro compares to some of the other competition out there. If there’s a comparisonthat you’d like me to do with another device, then definitely let me know which one you’d like tosee in the comments below. Now let’s move on to the performance where things are actually quite similar. So we do have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with the X55 modem. So 5G supports it on both devices. You’ve also got dual SIM capabilities on both devices as well, so you can have two SIMSactive at the same time. However, 5G will only beenabled on one SIM at one time, so the other one will be on 4G. You’ve got Wifi six aswell as Bluetooth 5.1 you’ve got UFS 3.0 storage.

There is 128 as well as 256gigabytes options available. And for Ram, you have either8 or 12 gigabytes of Ram. However, on the OnePlus 8Pro you do have LPDDR5 Ram. Whereas on the OnePlus8 you have LPDDR4X Ram. Now the Ram on the OnePlus8 Pro will be faster, so it’s around 30% fasterand 20% more power efficient. Now realistically speaking, I think on a day to day you’re not going to noticea massive difference in terms of performance between these two. They are both very, very fast and that is also thanks to the software because we do have OxygenOSon top of Android 10. OxygenOS you guys know it’s one of my favorite skins on Android. It’s very clean, very minimal. For speakers, both devicesdo have Stereo Speakers, so we’ve got one in the earpiece and one bottom firing withsupport for Dolby Atmos. And for the batteries, the OnePlus 8 Pro doeshave a larger battery compared to the OnePlus 8. However, both devices do have support for Warp charger 30T and they are going to chargeroughly about at the same speed, but the OnePlus 8 Pro doeshave a few advantages here because it does for the firsttime at a OnePlus device have wireless charging. Now this is 30 watt wireless charging, so that is very, very fast, significantly faster compared to lots of the competition out there which traditionally charges at around seven and seven and a half watts. Now the 30 watt charger, which of course is sold separately, we’ll charge the OnePlus 8 Pro from one to 50% in around 30 minutes, which is only a little bit longer compared to the wide charging, which is around 23 minutes. So that is really, really good. OnePlus have been saying for years that they’ve not gonewith wireless charging because it’s just not as fast. It looks like they figured it out and I’m very, very happy to see this. Now the OnePlus 8 Pro does also support reverse wireless charging.

So this is where you cancharge another device or some earbuds or somethingusing the OnePlus 8 Pro. However, this is onlyat round three Watts, so it’s not too fast. Nevertheless, it’sdefinitely nice to have. Now one new feature that both devices have is smart charging optimization. This is essentially goingto learn your usage patterns and it’s going to delay charging your device to 100% right way. So say, for instance, you wake up at 7:00 AM every single day. It’s going to learn that that’s roughly when you wake up. So if you do plug it in, it’s not going to charge it to 100% until it reaches around about that time, which is really interesting and I’m glad that OnePlus have got this because as you guys know, having your phone charged and left on charge for a long time can degrade the battery life over time. So this is really nice. Now in terms of battery usage, in terms of battery life, although you do have a largerbattery on the OnePlus 8 Pro, you do have a larger screenwith a high resolution and a high refresh rate. So I can’t tell youbattery figures as yet. I am going to have to use these a bit more extensively over time. Now let’s talk about the price. So the OnePlus 8 Pro is going to be starting at around $900. So we’re looking at flagship pricing. OnePlus has been increasingtheir price over time, but this time they’ve goneall the way to the top and it’s completely in the Pro league. The OnePlus 8 is comingin around $200 cheaper. Now if you ask me, is the OnePlus 8 Pro worth the extra $200? Well for me having that better display, the better cameras, the wireless charging especially, I think it’s definitelyworth the $200 extra. However, at that $900 price point or $1,000 for the 256 and buy option, you are competing with the big boys. With the likes of theSamsung galaxy S20 series, the iPhones. And this is going to be really interesting to see how it compares. If you want to see thoseSuperSaf style comparisons first, then make sure you dosubscribe to the channel and hit that bell icon. They’re going to becoming very, very soon. (upbeat music) What do you guys think of the OnePlus 8 as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro? Which one of these will you be going for.
