There was a surprising winner in the vote for smartphone of the year. The industry giants such as Samsung, Huawei and Apple were left behind. The winner was a cell phone from a comparatively small manufacturer.
With the OnePlus 8 Pro, the manufacturer of the same name broke new ground this year. First set OnePlus features that were sorely missed in the Group’s previous flagship smartphones – above all wireless charging or IP certification against dust and water. This courage has now been rewarded.

The OnePlus 8 Pro “raises the bar for high-end smartphones,” they say. In addition, the cell phone shows how “cutting edge technology can be combined with a stunning design”.

Costs significantly less: The OnePlus Nord
OnePlus can also pay dearly for the great hardware, because the OnePlus 8 Pro is not a cheap pleasure. With an RRP of 899 euros, the smartphone has reached new price dimensions for OnePlus standards, which has caused great resentment among long-time fans of the Chinese manufacturer. The company reacted to this criticism for a few months with the presentation of the OnePlus Nord, which only costs 399 euros and still has upper-class features such as a display with a high refresh rate. According to OnePlus, the aim is to “go back to the roots” and offer affordable cell phones again.
