OnePlus 7 Pro Review: Killer Display, Great Performance And Value

OnePlus 7 Pro - Web Browsing And General Compute Performance Benchmarks

For our firsts set of tests, we're using the JetStream benchmark to evaluate Javascript performance and RightWare’s Web Test 3.0 for a more comprehensive, mixed-media web performance analysis, which includes HTML5 rendering. Here we'll primarily determine how the OnePlus 7 Pro, with 12GB of RAM and Snapdragon 855 SoC handles this workload with the Chrome web browser.  All tests were performed at the phone's default QHD+ 3120x1440 display resolution.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 855-powered devices all perform similarly, but the OnePlus 7 Pro, with its 12GB of RAM and fast UFS 3.0 storage capable of up to 2666MB/s of bandwidth (versus 1333MB/s for legacy UFS 2.1 devices), takes the lead here by a hair.

Synthetic CPU Benchmark

In the GeekBench test, we're stressing only CPU cores in a handset (not graphics), with both single and multi-threaded workloads. The test is comprised of encryption processing, image compression, HTML5 parsing, physics calculations, and other general purpose compute processing.

Geekbench doesn't show much variance between the Snapdragon 855 powered flagship devices. The OnePlus 7 Pro is right in the mix with the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and LG G8 ThinQ.

Futuremark PCMark For Android
General Purpose Pocket Computing Performance Metrics
Futuremark's PCMark for Android is an excellent suite of tests that we recommend for benchmarking performance of a handset in a wide range of tasks, for things like image and video editing, as well as lighter-duty workloads like email and web browsing. When you see the test running live it's clear the scripted application tests are carefully selected and tuned to make use of the platforms involved in a very controlled way.

In PCMark for Android, the OnePlus 7 Pro stretches is storage legs even further. When it comes to photo editing and tasks where random file access requirements are paramount, the OnePlus 7 Pro takes the lead, breaking 10K in the overall score for the first time in our testing.

AnTuTu 7
Platform Benchmarks

AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of metrics ranked with somewhat nebulous scores, rather than frame rates or time to complete. We tested with the latest version of AnTuTu across an all Android platform group. AnTuTu returns four top level performance metric results that we are including here: CPU, RAM, 3D, UX (or User Experience), along with a total score. 

AnTuTu 7 Benchmark OnePlus 7 Pro
In AnTuTu 7 we see more of the same, with the OnePlus 7 Pro assembling the some of the best scores in each subset test in this benchmark. In every test, except the Memory score, the OnePlus 7 Pro squeaks out a win. And when it comes to memory performance, the OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the few Android phones to hang with the memory efficiency of Google's unadulterated Pixel 3 devices.
