Review: OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, a powerful camera that surprises

Features of the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G

The screen of this phone, 6.7 inches and with QHD + resolution, is one of its strengths. The AMOLED panel shows off unparalleled colors and brightness thanks to the optimization that OnePlus has subjected to this screen, with a video enhancement engine that is more noticeable with HDR content. Its 120Hz refresh rate makes scrolling look great on graphics-heavy apps like Instagram or Pinterest, as well as action games like Asphalt 9 or Call of Duty (or Need for Speed, PUBG and even Candy Crush).

All this type of content looks great, in addition to streaming videos in high quality resolutions. This AMOLED display is also harnessed with the “always-on display” function that discreetly and elegantly offers data such as time, music, and customizable contextual information. The interface is precisely elegant and attractive: it’s called OxygenOS and it’s version 12, just like the version of Android below it.

Its 12GB of RAM combined with Qualcomm’s most powerful processor -the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1- give the OnePlus 10 Pro great performance: there is no task that makes it feel slow. I tried all kinds of apps and scenarios, such as the combination of a running app using GPS with a music app and bluetooth headphones streaming via 5G; photo and video editing apps, everyday apps like messengers, social networking and mail, web browsing and video streaming services, plus the games I mentioned earlier. Even to unlock the screen, with facial or fingerprint recognition, it is super fast.

All that heavy use requires a good battery, but you can’t imagine a high-end smartphone without fast charging, and the OnePlus 10 Pro delivers a high-capacity 5,000mAh battery with wired (65W) and wireless (50W) fast charging. , in addition to the possibility of inverting wireless charging, to share its battery with headphones or another phone that is charged in this way.

The box includes the 65W charger as the only accessory. In practice, 15 minutes of connection charge a little more than half of the battery, and in less than an hour you can have a full charge. With average use, the battery can last two days, but consuming videos with the screen on high brightness, or playing games in the mode Pro Gamer makes the battery drain faster. An hour of YouTube videos at maximum brightness used 10% of the battery, for example.

The OnePlus 10 Pro’s cameras represent an improvement thanks to the involvement of Hasselblad, which delivers its second generation of smartphone cameras. There are three cameras in a square module that includes a dual-tone ring-shaped LED flash. The main camera is 48 MP, and it is accompanied by a 50 MP ultra-wide angle camera and an 8 MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. All of them are equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS) and can record video up to 8K resolution. The front camera is 32MP, also with OIS, although the video resolution is FHD.

Taking photos with the help of preset modes and Artificial Intelligence makes it relatively easy to get good results with the cameras on these types of phones, but in particular with the modes Hasselblad offers on the OnePlus 10 Pro, those who know more about photography have options. extra when taking photos (like full manual control or using the histogram) and when getting RAW files for later editing. The optical zoom, although modest, is of good quality, and the night mode achieves good photos.

Also worth a mention is the movie mode, which can produce video with higher dynamic range for post-production, as well as providing manual controls for shutter speed, ISO and color temperature.

The design of the OnePlus 10 Pro is sober and elegant. It has an aluminum body with Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and Gorilla Glass 5 on the back, in a matte metallic finish accented with a rectangular ceramic cover for the camera module.

The tray for the two nanoSIMs is located in the lower part, next to the USB-C connector, and in addition to the power and volume buttons, it integrates a physical switch on the right side with three positions that control the sound of notifications, or the absence of them and the mode of vibration. Few phones offer this option, which I find very useful, although fewer and fewer people use audio notifications.


The phone, without being heavy, is one of the least light in its category, and it is immediately noticeable the first time you hold it in your hand. The beautiful exterior design is complemented by the software interface, either in the notifications section, or in the “shelf” or “shelf”, which integrates OxigenOS in the upper right corner and when activated shows different widgets with the user account. your steps, Spotify suggestions, weather information, data consumed, and in general, the widgets offered by the installed apps. Being a dual SIM phone, you can clone some apps and also have a private section with access to restricted apps, using your fingerprint.

The rest of the specifications include 256GB of storage, NFC sensor, Bluetooth 5.2 with high quality audio technology, WiFi 6, GPS, 5G, the possibility of sharing the Internet and projecting the phone screen on an external monitor wirelessly.

It is not possible to expand the storage with an external memory card. The official price in Mexico is 24,000 pesos and it is available in two colors: Volcanic Black and Emerald Forest.

The OnePlus 10 Pro 5G is a smartphone that can compete very well with the rest of the top of the range in our country and has the advantage of being the cheapest of them.
