The OnePlus 8 Pro is no longer compromising on features bringing fast wireless charging and IP68 water and dust protection and as a result, the company feels confident enough to release a phone that asks what the current Galaxy S20+ costs. But the vanilla OnePlus 8 is still aimed at those wanting that fluid OxygenOS experience without having to spend as much. That doesn’t mean the standard 8 is cheap. It is considerably pricier than its predecessor, the OnePlus 7T.
