OnePlus 10 Pro is not cheap enough for the price trade-off

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 10 Pro worldwide earlier this year, and one of the most notable things about the new flagship is that it costs less than its predecessor.

The USP OnePlus 10 Pro starts at $ 899, compared to the P 1,069 price tag on the OnePlus 9 Pro. However, it comes at the expense of an inferior (but more extensive) ultraviolet camera, again with no IP68 rating for global or unlocked models, no mmWave and no UWB support. Is this trade-off worth it though? Here’s how you answer this question.

Is the cheap OnePlus 10 Pro price tag worth the trade-off?

The result

The poll was posted in our Opinion on April 4, garnering more than 1,300 votes as of writing. As can be seen, 61.23% of the surveyed readers said that the cheap price tag of OnePlus 10 Pro is not worthy of trade-off. We understand this position that there are some cheap, competitive flagships in the market like Google Pixel 6 and Samsung Galaxy S22.

These phones may not have the OnePlus 10 Pro features like fast charging, a huge battery (in case of S22), or a telephoto camera (in case of pixels), but they still bring features like IP68 rating across the board and update the long promise. .

At the other end of the spectrum, 38.77% of respondents said that trade-offs are worth the price. For the price, the phone is $ 170 less than the OnePlus 9 Pro and $ 100 less than the Galaxy S22 Plus. But you still get a flagship chipset, a high-quality QHD + screen, telephoto camera, 5,000mAh battery and very fast charging.

Still, we expect the Vanilla OnePlus 10 to see the light of day though, as it has the potential to push even more than the Pro variant.


  • Seth Webber: OnePlus has emerged as a brand that has been talking about a cheaper price for all the recent features and the brand has listened to their customers after adding such a heavy tag to the 9 Pro 5G. They are going down in price with very little sacrifice, which will go unnoticed.
  • catfanatic1979: Battery life exceeds the price range of each phone This is something you are not discussing.
  • Don McCall: OnePlus is making fine phones, but the fines aren’t enough when their main competitors are clearing that bar with exceptional phones. It would be nice to cut a few more small angles to get the $ 100 off the price (like the previous OnePlus phones), or to match the price and features of the big boys of Samsung / Apple. At the moment they’re straddling on both sides of the fence, and you know what happens to such boys often.
  • Samuel Holland: My humble opinion is that there is no source code release, no OnePlus.
