Your comment is hilarious for all the wrong reasons.
You wrongly assume I am a proud owner of an iPhone. You clearly have no idea, not a clue. I suggest you check out my pseudonym, prior to drawing ill-conceived conclusions.
An awesome addition to the GSMArena website would be selecting the refresh rate and resolution (in the Battery Life section or Battery Table) on these latest flagship phones as to see to what extent it has on the battery life. :)
For example I wanted to see the endurance of the OP 8 Pro set at FHD + 120Hz and I couldn't find it. :(
Also please consider mentioning what software update/OS version you are running when it comes to the Camera Review Section as OnePlus (and many others) can change dramatically after a few updates post reviewer/media sample collection date.
Last thing, the new audio test section is awesome, it's sad not to see it in this review.

Your battery tests are untrustworthy...are you telling me that EXYNOS S20+ you tested before had better results than SNAPDRAGON 8 Pro? Your tests - exynos s20+ 1440p 60Hz =97h. 8Pro same resolution and Hz = 92h. Don't believe that. There are so many comparism on the internet where it's been proven that exynos are much less power efficent with worse battery life than 865 variants
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020Seems you didn’t read the comment mentioned that S20 plus snapdragon 865 not Exynos 990. By th... moreI know Exynos running S20 has slightly better camera performance than SD version. But you have to understand that QHD@120hz consumes more battery compared to 1080p@120hz.
And these tests are done in default mode. This is why SD version of S20 have slightly better battery life than OP8 pro/Find x2 pro. If Samsung is made to run at QHD@120hz thru third party app, the results become worse than that of Find X2 pro/OP8 Pro.
Even in gaming tests, you'd have Snapdragon S20 pushing more frames compared to OP8 Pro simply coz of the lower resolution.
Why there is only one band of 5G ? or and what is the importance/difference of s20+ 5G bands and OP 8 pro?

IOS was too handicapped to run widgets. I remember implementing a simply HTC flip clock on jailbroken iPhone 6, lagged like hell.
If they aren't so useful, why is iOS offering it now?
Android innovated with a better compact tear drop version of notch or pop up camera or punch hole displays which don't consume any extra screen real estate. While iPhone has got that ugly brick sized notch.
Gestures existed on Android years back. Third party gesture apps existed for years. Only got incorporated in Android version later by pixel just like split screen multitasking was incorporated later.
srattan, 30 Apr 2020Your review is without speakers' test. Please include it. Moreover, the benchmarks stand in ... moreYes, The OnePlus 8's benchmark results are higher than the OnePlus 8 Pro's despite running on the same SoC that's because the OnePlus 8 runs at FHD+, 90Hz and the OnePlus 8 Pro runs at QHD+, 120Hz.
I got to be honest, I see minimal to no oversharpening effect on all the photos. It's a surprise to see OnePlus can produce better photo quality than its brother, the Oppo Find X2 Pro, despite using the exact same Sony IMX689 sensor.
That's it, OnePlus 8 Pro in my wishlist. This would be my first taste with OxygenOS if I do have the chance to buy one.

It's not misleading if you do care on learning on how they do battery consumption test which were standard on all devices they tested.
Not the detailed review I was hoping, I think because of the pandemic reviewer didn't have access to all the tools.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020Widgets are just one of most useless of android of all times.acctualy most important thing for many users ...
I dont need to open app to see calendar events - list throug them, month overview/week overview, list of emails, weather forecast, notes, ... use some app funkcion directly from screen - start some event, stop it, without actualy opening the app itself
this is where apple is behind with ios on Iphones or Tablets. Other things are being closer and closer with newer versions, but in many basic things is iOs behind Android, still doesnt have basic functionality of phones before iphone. Android phones had it from the begining

Research conduct by the Signals Research Group has shown that 5G's power advantages and disadvantages don't matter much, since other elements of phone usage, particularly the backlight, have much larger impacts on battery life than the cellular chip.
