OnePlus 8 is for two different groups of people. The first group pines after today’s top-tier flagships, but simply don’t want to (or can’t) spend the $1,000 needed to get one. It’s also for people who want a solid device, but not necessarily the biggest whopper on the store shelf. And let’s face it, there are a lot of them. Samsung, LG, and others have kicked out some seriously big phones lately. Bigger isn’t always better, and some people like to keep size in check for usability or other reasons.
The OnePlus 8 makes a strong case for itself with segment-leading display and design. Performance and fluidity are top-notch too. The cameras still remain the Achilles heel of the device, and puts it behind the competition. Overall, it is an extremely enjoyable phone that is worth considering under Rs 50,000.
The OnePlus 8 covers this ground, though it’s not by itself. It matches up well in terms of size and/or cost against the now-discounted Samsung Galaxy S20 and the Google Pixel 4 XL, both of which are available for much less than their original launch prices. The OnePlus 8 may also stand as one of the cheapest points-of-entry for those looking to adopt 5G.
OnePlus 8 Design
The biggest generational leap (and also the most difficult to intangibly explain) according to us comes with the design. All the renders and images that you must’ve seen by now really don’t do justice to how amazing the OnePlus 8 has been designed with meticulous attention to detail.
This hit us as soon as we touched it for the first time while unboxing it. At just 180 grams, it is ridiculously lightweight. Phones quickly get uncomfortable at around the 200-gram mark. Even with a proper glass sandwich design, OnePlus has somehow managed to shave off some heft while not feeling too flimsy or hollow. It seems really sturdy and well built; One of the best in-hand feel on any recent smartphone.
Honestly, I was a little bummed to not get the Interstellar Glow variant of the OnePlus 8. But this Onyx Black grew on me real quick. When the screen is off, you get a perfectly symmetrical and smooth body with no sharp edges on either side. The matte black frame is seamless with the glass on the front and the back, adding another touch of luxury. It’s also significantly narrower than most phones with a display this big, making it even easier to hold and use.

OnePlus 8 Camera
Apart from the display, the cameras represent the biggest divergence between the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8. The Pro has a newer main sensor and a telephoto, while the vanilla model recycles an older sensor for the main camera and trades the telephoto for a macro. I simply don’t get it. I could understand the macro if OnePlus had kept the same main sensor. Maybe.
The main camera is the venerable 48MP Sony IMX586, which bins down to 12MP. Nearly every 2019 flagship relied on this sensor. There is no optical zoom on this phone, so zooming is done digitally. At least OnePlus was smart enough to include an ultra wide-angle.
Photo quality ranges from very good to poor, depending on what type of photo you’re taking. Most shots captured via the main camera were strong. They showed sharp focus, good color, and mostly accurate exposure. Shots from the wide-angle camera were sharp and clean, but slightly distorted and somewhat washed out.
