ONEPLUS 10 PRO test: the brand’s most successful smartphone
The OnePlus 10 Pro is the latest addition to the OnePlus brand. As usual, it seeks to bring the best of its know-how in its most upscale product. This year, she puts a lot on the photo thanks to her partnership with Hasselblad. The OnePlus 10 Pro manages to get out of the game in an extremely demanding market ? Is it only a good smartphone ? We will see him right away.

The OnePlus 10 Pro is the new ultra premium smartphone OnePlus. While each year, we have a classic version and a pro version, the subsidiary of Oppo decides to shake up our habits in 2022 by offering only one model.
No “normal” oneplus 10, therefore, but only one and only terminal with the “pro” denomination which aims to be a summary of what the brand can do. Like always, We find the best in technology, Like the latest Qualcomm processor (the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1), a beautiful screen or a careful design. Even more, this OnePlus 10 Pro continues the evolution started on the OnePlus 9 with regard to the photo, namely a lot of work on the image in partnership with the Hasselblad optics giant.
This terminal also has the heavy task of correcting the concerns of the previous one. We remember of the weakness of the OnePlus 9 in the battery. An aspect on which we are going to be very vigilant. We will therefore ask ourselves two major questions. The first is simply to know if the OnePlus 10 Pro is a good smartphone on a daily basis. For the second, we will ask ourselves if he manages to climb to the competition regarding the photo part.

A technical sheet that promises the best
With its high -end smartphones, OnePlus always seeks to offer the best to its customers. The 10 pro is no exception to the rule. We thus have a large 6.7 -inch AMOLED LPTO2 slab of a definition of 3216 x 1440 pixels and with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Level processor, we still have the latest Qualcomm SOC dated, here the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The battery is 5000 mAh (with fast load of 80 Watts). Finally, the photo module consists of four sensors: a principal of 48 megapixels, an ultra wide angle of 50 megapixels and an 8 megapixel telephoto lens. No more monochrome sensor as on previous models.

It’s a Ultra Premium technical sheet that leaves dreamy. But a smartphone is like a pastry: it is not because all the ingredients are there that the recipe is successful. It’s now time to see if OnePlus is a good cook.
An extremely successful design
OnePlus smartphones have always had this little something in addition in terms of design, this indefinable thing that makes them recognizable among a thousand. The OnePlus 10 Pro is no exception to the rule. The brand offers us An extremely successful terminal, both in hand and in terms of visual.
The phone is available in two colors: black and turquoise green. It is the latter that we have in testing. The color, very original, is pleasant to the eye and gives it a real personality. OnePlus abandons the hardened glass of the previous model for an aluminum shell. This has the advantage of not attracting fingerprints. When taking it in hand, We are surprised by the sweetness of the material to the touch, very pleasant. We also appreciate its perfectly balanced weight, despite its 200 grams on the scale and its huge photo module.
Because that’s what we notice first on the OnePlus 10 Pro. Its ceramic XXL module sees itself as the nose in the middle of the figure. Three sensors and a flash compose it, giving a very special “hob” appearance. We like or we don’t like it, but we must admit that he gives a real personality to the smartphone and that he is perfectly integrated into the design. The OnePlus 10 Pro is recognized thanks to him.
This module takes more than half of the width of the OnePlus 10 Pro and Release of a few millimeters. Within it, two sensors are slightly. This gives a wobbly smartphone when placed on the back. This is not the first to make this error, and it will probably not be the last, but it must be noted.
The smartphone is thick (8.6 mm without the sensor) but OnePlus managed to give it an aerial side. To do this, the brand has reduced the slices to a minimum by curling the screen and the rear cover.
Regarding slices buttons, We find the usual provision of OnePlus smartphones. On the right, we have the power button as well as the notched key for silent mode. On three levels, it allows you to easily go from the ringer to the vibrator without unlocking it. Practical and always appreciable.
On the left edge, there is the volume button, which is generally right on Android smartphones. This arrangement can confuse If you are not used to it, but is ultimately very practical in everyday life. The lower edge welcomes The USB Type-C port as well as the SIM card cover. No location for a microSD, however. We also note the absence of Port Jack 3.5 mm.
On the screen part, we find an amoled slab which covers more than 90 % of the facade. The edges are indeed practically non -existent, whether on the sides (it is recalled that the slab is slightly curved on the edges) or on the lower and upper parts.
For its part, the front camera is materialized in the form of a discreet punch housed at the top left of the screen.
Finally, the fingerprint sensor is Always located under the slab. If we found it a little low on the OnePlus 9, it is ideally placed here and the thumb has no trouble finding it. He is very effective on a daily basis: we had no failure during our test week.
Ultimately, OnePlus gives us a phone extremely successful on this design part. With a real personality and pleasant in hand, the OnePlus 10 Pro is simply what a premium smartphone must be. A success.
A simply perfect screen
Regarding the screen part, we were very suspicious of this OnePlus 10 Pro. The manufacturer has often disappointed us with its calibrations. The OnePlus 9 has corrected this concern, but it is still necessary that the 10 pro continues in this way. This is the case, according to our measures. Better, since OnePlus gives us one of the best tiles on the market. The OnePlus 10 Pro therefore joins the ultra Galaxy S22 at the top.
The terminal has a 6.7 -inch Amoled slab slightly curved on the sides. The definition can go up to 3,216 x 1400 pixels, to the user to see if he needs it (which is not certain in the smartphone format). By default, the slab is in FHD+ and is put in QHD+ if the content displayed requires it, but we can choose a fixed definition if we wish. This is an LPTO2 slab with a dynamic refresh rate ranging from 1 to 120 Hz. In fact, this means that the framerate is adjusted according to what is displayed. On a series at 24 images per second, it will not go higher, but will be able to turn to 120 images per second on the menus. This brings additional comfort to the user, but also saves battery compared to 120 Hz standard.
With Oxygen OS 12, OnePlus offers The same screen modes as on Oppo terminals, The parent company. Four profiles are available (including two in the “pro” profile): lively, natural, kinematic and losing. In all cases, the contrast is infinite (amoled obliges), and we have deep blacks and brilliant whites. Likewise, the maximum brightness exceeds 500 nits in all these profiles, which means that outside on the day of the bright sun, your screen will remain very readable.
We have analyzed all types of screen and observation is extremely positive. The “lively” mode is that selected by default. He does explode colors to make the display more impactful. We still have an average delta e at 2.8 (below 3 being excellent). By looking at it, we notice that it is the reds, the yolks and the bruises that are made fluorescent, the other colors being very respected. The average temperature in this mode is slightly high, at 7200 K, well above 6,500k of the video standard. On a blank page, the screen therefore draws towards blue, a will from OnePlus in order to give more impact to the image. The burst mode brings the same results roughly, but with an average delta e at 4. It is the latter who most flats the user’s retina, to the detriment of respect for colors.
Natural mode is an example to follow in terms of color respect with an average delta e at 1. Here, none is exaggerated. The colors you see on the screen are those of reality. This is the one that you will have to choose to look at your photos. The icing on the cake: the temperature is 6500 k all round. An example in terms of calibration. Finally, the kinematic mode adopts a just temperature, but with a little exaggerated primary colors. It was designed for content consumption, such as games or films. In short, OnePlus gives us one of the best screens on the market with us Perfect calibration and coherent color modes. A strong argument for the new flagship of the brand.
Regarding sound, The result is correct. The stereo is good and the speaker of the lower slice is well placed. We thus avoid putting our palm on it in the landscape position. If we note a slight high volume distortion, the OnePlus 10 Pro delivers a pleasant and balanced sound. Good pick.
A powerful processor that turns everything
All the flagship smartphones of OnePlus are equipped with the latest Qualcomm SOC and the OnePlus 10 Pro is no exception to the rule. We have here A Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, latest from the manufacturer. It is supported either by 8 GB of RAM or by 12 GB depending on the model. Our version has 12 GB.
This is not the first time that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has passed in our Labos and we know that it does not represent a leap forward compared to its predecessor, 888. This trend is once again confirmed. If the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and the Moto Edge 30 Pro remain a bit above, we still have one of the most powerful Android terminals on the market. This is confirmed in use. The smartphone is fluid, even with a lot of open applications. Everything starts instantly and in a week of testing, we have not known any slowdown or crash.
Same observation for the game. GENSHIN IMPACT (our reference title) Turn to 60 images per second with the graphics at “top”. As for the heating … We know that this is a difficult point on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and here it is present. It spreads properly on the entire chassis and is well felt at the screen level. If it does not make the terminal unusable, we are still embarrassed after a while. Damage.
Oxygen OS 12, the best Android overlayer ?
The OnePlus 10 Pro is equipped of Android 12 with Oxygen OS 12.1. It is an overlay that we particularly appreciate in Phonandroid and which does not disappoint in this new version. You should know that with the rapprochement between OnePlus and his Oppo parent company, it was a time to replace Oxygen OS by Coloros. In front of the growl of the community, Oppo finally backtracked. We have Oxygen OS and this overlay will continue to equip the OnePlus smartphones in the future.
One of his assets is personalization. We know that Android 12 also put a lot about it, but OnePlus goes further by making it possible to change the icons, to modify the Alway on Display thoroughly or to have fun the transitions from one page to the other. Everything is fluid, simple to use and brings a real more to the product. Your OnePlus 10 Pro will never be the same as that of your neighbor.
OnePlus offers Several other sympathetic features. One of them is Shelf, which allows you to have a drop -down menu displaying a summary of your day (number of steps, weather, notes, most used apps). It appears when you pull the screen down via its right part, which can hinder users who just want the classic Android menu. However, Shelf can be deactivated in the options.
As usual, we have other additional applications installed By default on the phone. If some are duplicating with those of Google (clock, calculator), others are interesting, like Community (which allows you to go up a concern). The Zen app, introduced with Oxygen OS 11, is also making a comeback.
Ultimately, we have a Always as pleasant overlay, Simple to use, pretty, customizable and which is not increased by its new features. We also appreciate its fluidity and optimization, especially at the level of the battery. We will come back below.
Best in terms of photo, but there is still work
The OnePlus 9 was a turning point for OnePlus. The brand, until then very late on the photo part, had called on the Hasselblad optics giant to support it. This partnership only concerned the software part. If there was a notable improvement compared to the OnePlus 8, we then deplored a sometimes strange treatment of the image. The OnePlus 10 Pro improves this aspect, but there is still work. The OnePlus 10 Pro has three sensors In its module: a main sensor (Sony IMX 789) of 48 megapixels (F/1.8), an ultra-angle (samsung isocell gn1) of 50 megapixels (f/2.2) and a telephoto of 8 megapixels (f/2.4).
Generally, The copy rendered by OnePlus is satisfactory, But far from being at the level of the tenors of the market such as the S22, the Find X5 Pro or the Pixel 6. The photos taken with the main sensor give good results, even if we find the software processing a little brutal in terms of contrasts.
To take full advantage of the sensors of the 10 pro, it is obviously necessary to go through Pro mode designed by Hasselblad. If it only concerns the most experienced users, it allows you to obtain a fairer image for those who wish.
The smartphone convinces on overall plans, but it surprises Really on the macro part, Very effective in capturing tiny details. Ideal for taking a close -up object.
We also appreciate its very reactive autofocus, Perfect for taking pictures of the subjects constantly in motion, like animals.
The OnePlus 10 Pro has from an optical zoom to X3.3, And the telephoto lens gives very clean shots, especially in macro. Note that the smartphone also offers an X30 digital zoom, which gives it unusable results.
It is especially on the ultra wide angle that OnePlus wants to bet, thanks to a 50 megapixel sensor. If he also undergoes software treatment that is sometimes too present, he manages to give us great results most of the time. Furthermore, it is on him that puts oneplus on the flagship features of the smartphone.
The OnePlus software offers a Fisheye effect at 150 degrees (two effects are offered) in order to have a little fun. This is an interesting exclusivity, But dispensable for most users.
Functionality The most interesting is xpan. It allows you to take a real panorama in a single plug and offers a very convincing result. It is not a gadget, but a functionality that the user will be brought to use often if he takes a lot of pictures. Ideal for holidays.
For its part, Night mode disappoints. If the software processing makes it possible to improve (a little) the readability of the image, this is done to the detriment of the colors that lose natural. We are far from Pixel 6 on this point.
Finally, let us note that the OnePlus 10 Pro is able to film in 8k and 24 fps at most, which is the standard today on very high -end smartphones. Ultimately, the OnePlus 10 Pro has arguments to argue, like the XPAN, a wide angle of quality or even a very complete pro mode. However, Hasselblad’s software treatment still lacks a bit of finesse, which places it below the best photophones on the market. It is successful, but you still have to improve.
Good autonomy and a very fast fast load
The OnePlus 9 Pro, despite all its qualities, had disappointed us because of its autonomy. The terminal had indeed struggled to end the day without approaching a catch. We were waiting for the OnePlus 10 Pro at the turn on this segment. Good news, The manufacturer has made efforts, Thanks to a large battery, a less energy -consuming screen and a much better optimized overlay.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is equipped of a 5000 mAh battery. We first tested the smartphone “thoroughly”, that is to say by setting the definition of the screen in 2K and activating the 120 Hz. Under these conditions and during a normal day (social networks, internet navigation, video, a little game, GPS, etc.), we have on average Between 25 and 35% battery at bedtime. It’s good ! By putting the screen in Full HD+, we can win 10% !
OnePlus provides A charger of 80 Watts Supervooc Dyears the box of his smartphone. During our tests, we calculated a recharge from 0 to 100 % in 35 minutes only. It’s excellent. On the other hand, the charger itself is relatively massive (almost the size of that of an ultra-portable), which does not make it very practical for transport.
ONPLUS 10 PRO test: a barely revised oneplus 9 pro
After a successful neplus 9 pro, the Chinese brand returns with the OnePlus 10 Pro. The device is good. However, he struggles to outdo himself his predecessor and his competitors. The fault of famelic developments in a new dividing design.
- + Perfect screen to consume content
- + A good user experience
- + Fast load in wired and wireless
- – Little improvements compared to the OnePlus 9 Pro
- – Always delay in photography
- – Unneteenthetic rear photo module

There is only one. At least for now. At the start of 2022, OnePlus released only one high -end smartphone, the OnePlus 10 Pro. Two other devices would be planned to believe rumors, a OnePlus 10 and an ONPLUS 10 Ultra, but the Chinese brand has not officially communicated. The attention is therefore focused on this unique pro model, sold from 919 euros, as last year.
If the Chinese manufacturer has long kept its reputation as ” flagship killer », The release of a unique model at more than 900 euros shows that this era is over. Same observation for oxygensos. The famous software overlay is back this year again, but we feel that OPPO and Coloros are getting closer. Logical, the two manufacturers should unify their overlay by next year, despite the announcement of Oxygenos 13.
However, the OnePlus 10 has many attractive arguments on paper, starting with an interesting quality/price ratio. Enough to tickle your competitors ? To find out, we made it our main device for three weeks.
A new cleavage design
Last year, OnePlus had offered a new design at the rear to mark the evolution of its camera in the cameras and the partnership signed with Hasselblad. If the appearance of last year’s smartphone was quite classic, this 2022 edition takes a real risk. An imposing photo module is at the back of the device. We cannot deny a “hob” appearance ! This aesthetic choice will not please everyone. On our side, we are not a fan. In addition, this more visible module does not make major improvements on the photo side, which we will see later in this test. Choice therefore divides for this module because for the rest, the appearance of a matt back is welcome.
The device benefits from pretty finishes and an impeccable grip, provided you love big smartphones. We always appreciate the slider as much on the right of the device to switch between the different ringing modes. Finally, the fingerprint sensor is positioned above than on the OnePlus 9 Pro. Choice not necessarily appropriate in our opinion. The sensor is less accessible with your thumb when you have small hands. We take advantage of a very slightly curved edge screen, just like last year. OnePlus found the right balance on the angle where the screen plunges and has no reason to change it. The visual is satisfactory and the grip is never affected by it.
Very good screen
The OnePlus 10 Pro slab is substantially the same as on the 9 pro. He therefore benefits from the same advantages. It’s a screen 6.7 Quality, bright amoled inches (without equaling the very high end), 120 Hz and with relatively loyal colors, provided you pass the display in natural mode in the settings. To the eye, very skilful, the one who can see differences. This is where our laboratory comes.
And yes, overall the two terminals more or less share the same screen. But that of the OnePlus 10 Pro is a little less good. Curious. It is less bright. Count 805 cd/m² against 856 cd/m² last year. Same for color fidelity. The delta e of this screen is 5.37 by default and 2.11 in “natural” mode against 4.78 By default and 1.58 in “natural” mode on the OnePlus 9 Pro. As a reminder, the closer this figure, the more the colors are faithful to reality. So, as we said, to the eye, difficult to see a difference. Nevertheless, it is regrettable, for a product supposed to surpass its elder, that its screen turns out to be less good, even if the difference is minimal.
The delay in photos widens
The biggest evolution of the OnePlus 10 Pro is supposed to be photography. Despite a partnership with Hasselbald since last year, the Chinese brand has struggled to win in this area. In recent years, the photos have been correct and the multitude of camera modules has allowed great versatility. However, we are still at best in the average in this price category. The ultra-high range is still far ahead.
At the material level, OnePlus takes up the same main 48 MP -MP sensor and the same 8 Mpx telephoto lens equivalent to a 3.3x zoom from the wide angle. The novelty comes from the ultra-angle 50 mpx sensor. The Sony model was replaced by Samsung with the particularity of offering an angle of view of up to 150 degrees to make Fisheyes. They are equipped with OnePlus Billion Color technology, allowing the device to make 10 -bit shots, 24 times more colors than 8 bits on the previous model. Finally, it is possible to shoot in 12 -bit RAW, which should especially interest demanding users. It remains to be seen whether they will be seduced by the photographic part.
In reality, there too, the differences with the OnePlus 9 Pro are quite minimal. And in 2021, he was already delayed. Despite camera modules in the heart of the rear design, once in practice, we are a little disappointed. The photos are correct, nothing more. The main sensor does the day job and remains acceptable at night.
The ultra-angle does not make a miracle in full light, but remains nice. The deformations are strong and the dive lacks the edge of the image. It becomes complex to use at night if you want a perfectly clear shot.
Same observation for the telephoto lens, you will have usable day -to -day results and more difficult at night. Chromatic aberrations are legion on this x3 zoom.
As for color treatment, there is a small improvement with tones a little warmer than last year and colors sometimes better managed. HDR is sometimes capricious and we will tend to deactivate it. Good point all the same in night mode which is significantly better than last year, especially in complicated conditions.
On the right the night mode makes the texts much clearer.
The selfie camera has seen its number of megapixels be doubled and produces a correct result, however the improvement is not significant. On video, you can film up to 8K. No surprise, the results comply with those of the photographs.
In summary, OnePlus continues to widen its delay. It would be wrong to say that she is a bad photophone. However, if this is an important argument for you, at the same price, you should take a look at competition. The OnePlus 10 is perfect for keeping memories, complicated to advise for extensive use.
Oxygenos, or rather what left
If Oppo and OnePlus have not yet fully merged their operating system, the new version of Oxygen OS deployed on the OnePlus 10 Pro gets closer to Color Os. Thus, we still find that the charm operates a little less than in the great era of OnePlus. The operating system is far from bad, on the contrary, however the interface is a little more round or certain tasks a little less ergonomic. Very stupid example: where the old versions of oxygen OS made it possible to carry out an action in three stages, this 2022 edition will sometimes ask for four.
This new version also introduces a revamped version of Shelf, an interface bringing together widgets and shortcuts. Here, it is activated by default. To access it, just slide your finger from top to bottom from the high right corner of the screen. Problem, as the phone is large, it is often at this place that you make your finger slide from top to bottom to access the notifications pane. A fairly questionable choice in our opinion. Fortunately, you can deactivate Shelf in the settings. We can’t help but see a bad choice, not blocking, but a little amazing on the part of OnePlus which has long offered the best user experience. Where the Chinese manufacturer was excellent, it becomes only … very good.
Powerful, but far from being dominant
The OnePlus 10 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the most upscale mobile processors. We have already found through our various tests that this generation had some optimization problems. Equipped devices tend to heat up and the processor slows down the rate to avoid overheating. Confirmed observation in this terminal. The OnePlus 10 Pro heats. Fortunately, in hand, you will not feel it. On the other hand, the performance is sometimes uneven. In our test protocol which requires a lot of resources, we note that in less than 10 min, the OnePlus 10 Pro only uses 80 % of its raw power.
Furthermore, even comparing compared to smartphones equipped with this same processor, the scores of Benchmark Antutu and Geekbench are a little less good at OnePlus. In fact, you will have no worries about all daily tasks. Nevertheless, in the most gourmet 3D games, after several tens of minutes of use, it is not impossible that you are faced with a few slight slowdowns.
TEST ONPLUS 10 PRO: a good high -end that does not do enough
OnePlus finally launches its 10 pro model in Europe. A high -end smartphone that takes over from the OnePlus 9 Pro, bringing a new style, but not necessarily more possibilities.
After an American outing in January 2022, OnePlus took advantage of spring to release his new flagship on French territory. A smartphone which we already know everything before we have it in our hands. It constitutes a flagship – very beautiful, which is more – to which we were in a hurry to subject our usual test battery in the laboratory.
Like his predecessor, he was launched in France from € 919 in 8/128 GB version and € 999 in 12/256 Go. This new OnePlus 10 Pro is therefore placed in front of the very recent Xiaomi 12 Pro or the Samsung Galaxy S22.
Ergonomics and design
Discovered during these 2022 and taken in hand during the MWC last February, this OnePlus 10 Pro is obviously no longer really a surprise for us. In a good high -end smartphone, it offers a more than exemplary finish, with a frosted glass rear and a black ceramic photo island. The grip is slightly slippery, but has the advantage of not revealing fingerprints. Like Samsung with its Galaxy S21, the large module that houses the sensors is merged with the slice of the OnePlus 10 Pro. The whole seems to be made of a room, which reinforces the premium appearance of the smartphone.
At the front, the new flagship of Chinese offers a large 6.7 -inch slab, curved in a very discreet way. The borders are reduced to a minimum, offering a total occupancy rate greater than 90 %. A very small punch is present in the upper left corner of the mobile.
OnePlus has kept the size of its preceding preceding high -end, the OnePlus 9 Pro. These identical dimensions offer a grip as pleasant as last year. The smartphone is not the most imposing on the market, but its long shape complicates access to the upper part of the slab with one hand.
All periphery of the smartphone is aluminum. The slices are extremely fine, but leave room for the various buttons. On the right the volume controls. On the left, the start button is good under the thumb andAlert Slider, real brand of OnePlus, is located just above.
Unfortunately, this year, OnePlus ignores the IP68 standard that she was proud to present on the OnePlus 9 Pro. For the rest, this model is obviously 5G and benefits from WiFi 6 as well as Bluetooth 5.2.
No mini-jack 3.5 mm socket here, but two speakers offering a sound in stereo. They prove to be very good to watch videos or to listen to music at a rather moderate volume. The smartphone tends to sizzle in the grave at maximum volume.

The OnePlus 10 Pro is built around a 6.7 -inch Amoled slab, in the QHD+ definition (3216 x 1440 pixels) and in the 20: 9 ratio: 9. This LTPO display allows you to benefit from an adaptive refresh rate up to 120 Hz. Like all its competitors, this slab which displays Full HD+ by default (2412 x 1080 pixels), sports pleasant curved edges in hand. A protective film is also affixed, completing its Gorilla Glass Victus window.
The brightness is pretty good, without breaking the records of the genre. Our probe for 805 cd/m², compensating for relatively high reflectance (49.5 %). At the bottom, the brightness can fall to 2 cd/m². Its contrast is infinite, or almost, and its tactile delay contained (60 ms). In short, overall, with its curved edges and high refresh rate, this screen is comfortable to use.
Like often alas, the default mode by the manufacturer is not the most efficient. This “live” mode translates under our probes in a 7653 k color temperature (against 6,500 k for the video standard) and by a correct Delta E of 2.9. By opting for the “natural” mode offered in the parameters the delta e even descends to 1.1 – like the best devices of the moment – and the color temperature at 6735 k. It is possible to refine the temperature a little more by playing on a gauge offered in addition. Finally, let us add that OnePlus offers the equivalent of a true tone at Apple through an option called “Display of natural tones”, and aiming to optimize color temperature in real time depending on the ambient lighting.
Like all flagships, or almost, from this beginning of the year, the OnePlus 10 Pro integrates the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 of Qualcomm. Our test model is coupled with 12 GB of RAM, but an 8 GB embedding version also exists. OnePlus also allocates 3 GB of virtual ram to his smartphone.
At stake, we get the same results as with all other smartphones equipped with the latest high -end chip from Qualcomm. If they are good, the performances are clearly below the promises of the chip, which leaves a lot of questions. In addition, the OnePlus 10 Pro quickly heats up when it is requested, in play, in photography or during a somewhat long use. This heat spreads to a good part of the mobile, which harms the comfort of handling. Hopefully the manufacturers will find a way to fight this Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 heating. For the moment, its full power is not there, and it’s a shame.
To speak, the 10 pro struggles to exceed 60 I/S average. At the maximum, it points to 63 i/s and falls to at least 54 i/s, which underlines its stability. By activating the “high performance” mode, the smartphone manages to maintain itself at 62 i/s for a short period, before going under the 50 I/S for the rest of the duration of our test; No need to use it so.
CPU power is indisputable, but does not exceed that of the OnePlus 9 Pro and its Snapdragon 888. Understand that the 10 pro collects a multitasking index of 100, and does not weaken. The 9 pro was slightly more swift, with its target clue of 102.
Our performance tests are carried out with aim, the application developed by the company Smartvis.

For its new flagship, OnePlus offers a display of three modules. The main poster 48 megapixels: this is the famous IMX789 sensor which was already present on the OnePlus 9 Pro. Beside him comes a new ultra-wide-angle module of 50 megapixels, the Samsung ISOCELL JN1. Finally, to complete the table, the 3.3x telephoto lens with 8 megapixel sensor is renewed here. The monochrome module of 2 megapixels which was present on the OnePlus 9 Pro has disappeared this year. The partnership with the Swedish Hasselblad inaugurated last year is renewed in 2022.
The promise of this ProPlus 10 Pro therefore does not seem to be revolutionary. We can even say that it is highly similar to what the high -end model of the past year already offered. Let’s see if this is confirmed in the image.
Main module: 48 megapixels, f/1.8, eq. 23 mm
By day, the OnePlus offers a much more contrasting image, even too much, a more flattering colorimetry as well as a better controlled exhibition than on its direct competitor, the Xiaomi 12 Pro. The general tone of the image is nevertheless quite flat. It loses this hot side which was created by the OnePlus 9 Pro last year.
At night, the trend is reversed. The photo of the 10 pro is very treated, with a fairly strong smoothing, despite a more than correct exposure. The Xiaomi manages to give more dive to its image, which is seen in particular on the tip of the card.
48 megapixel mode
In full definition, the OnePlus 10 Pro does not offer as much day contrast. The photo taken is much more smoothed and the colorimetry is no longer the same. At night, there is no change compared to the default mode in 12 megapixels.
Ultra Grand-Angle Module: 50 megapixels, F/2.2, eq. 14 mm
The new ultra-wide-angle sensor of this OnePlus 10 Pro offers no more satisfaction than that of the past year, and it’s a shame. As on the great angle, the colorimetry is quite neutral, but the contrast too weak and the lack of rather obvious dive; The image is unfortunately smoothed.
In low light, the observation is relatively identical. The exhibition is much better than in competition, but the software processing is here too present. This causes a lack of dive due to the very smoothing. Again, the colorimetry is quite cold.
50 megapixel mode
As for the Grand English, the ultra-wide angle of the OnePlus 10 Pro allows you to capture a cliché in full definition (50 megapixels). Unfortunately, this does nothing more to the default mode (in 12.5 megapixels).
Telephoto module: 8 megapixels, f/2.4, éq. 77 mm, zoom 3.3x
The observations noted on the two previous modules remain valid on this optical zoom. Magnification is certainly more important than that of the Xiaomi, but the level of detail is not as important. The OnePlus 10 Pro lacks contrast and its colorimetry is not as flattering as that of its opponent. or even the previous model.
At night, the photo is completely crushed. The software processing is far too strong, completely smoothing our photo scene.
Front module, portrait and video mode
At the front, the new flagship of OnePlus is equipped with a module of 32 megapixels which delivers a more than satisfactory service. Color management is excellent. Hasselblad software treatment seems to be much less than on the main sensors at the rear. The brightness is well managed and the level of detail is good, despite a visible smoothing when you zoom in on a face, for example.
Portrait mode is also very good. At the front, the result is one of the best that we have been given to see on Android. The clutch is excellent, the smartphone managing to capture the entire subject, without stopping on what usually lacks (hair, beard, ears, glasses. to recite nobody else but them). The Bokeh is very pleasant and does not seem forced more than reason. We also get very good results with the main module. In short, the portrait mode of this OnePlus 10 Pro Tits Excellence.
In video, the smartphone is capable of filming in 4K at 120 I/S or 8K to 24 I/S (against 30 I/S on the OnePlus 9 Pro). The high-angle module and the telephoto lens are both with optical stabilization (OIS), which should almost make the tremors disappear.
The OnePlus 10 Pro gets tune with the vast majority of current smartphones and adopts a 5000 mAh battery, when the 9 pro of 2021 was “content” by 4500 mAh. The choice is welcome, but does not radically change the situation. With the same settings, and in terms of our target tests, the 10 pro held 2 h 02 min before extinction, against 13 h 36 min for the OnePlus 9 Pro. It allows you to hope for a good day of use, not really more. In the field of autonomy, the smartphone ranks behind recent smartphones, which generally flirt with the 17 hours.
On the other hand, the fast charge, now stamped VOOC, like the Oppo models, hits the bull’s eye on the OnePlus 10 Pro. Using its 80 W block provided – in Europe, because in North America, you have to be satisfied with a loader 65 W – it is capable of refueling in some 33 minutes. Let us add that the device remains compatible with the wireless load at 50 W, but also with the inverted wireless load.
Our battery tests are automated by target, the application developed by the company Smartvis.
The results obtained with target come from measurements made in real conditions of use (calls, SMS, videos, application launch, web navigation, etc.).
Our sustainability score makes it possible to determine the lasting aspect of the smartphone as much for the consumer as for the environment. It is based on the repairability index, sustainability criteria (protection index, standard connectors, warranty duration and updates. ) and an assessment of CSR policies (corporate social responsibility). You will find all the details of the analysis in our article presenting the sustainability score.
The note here is strongly impacted by the absence of IP68 standard which was however present on the OnePlus 9 Pro last year.
The OnePlus 10 Pro is the company’s first smartphone to be delivered under oxygen OS 12.1 on the box output. The new version of the specific software interface in OnePlus does not revolutionize it, but improves the existing – especially what was added in 2021 with Oxygen OS 11. In particular, there is a revised security component for even more privacy or the arrival of version 2.0 of the balance-work mode, which allows you to define a specific notification profile according to the day or the place where you are.
Dark mode is also a beauty. You can opt for three very different modes, ranging from dark gray to complete black. The “Shelf”, activated thanks to a sliding down from the right corner, gains new features, just like the photo gallery. In short, small modifications that improve the experience offered by Oxygen OS 11.
