Not really surprising considering the 7T carries forward just about every aspect of the 7 Pro yet is cheaper.
A OnePlus 7 pro arrived at my home today. I'm upgrading my wife's SE.
Here's my checklist (for anyone who is curious or has advice):
All new to me (I've never even opened a sim tray before) so I'm excited and a little nervous.
- Carrier unlock the T-mobile phone
- Plug phone into PC, convert T-mobile software to International version
- Turn iMessage and FaceTime settings off on iPhone SE
- Pop out the Verizon SIM from the iPhone and insert it into OnePlus
- Have Verizon set up her line as CDMA-less
- Install GCam
you might already know this, but in order to sim unlock it, you'll have to be on the T-Mobile firmware. At least that's what I've read on XDA when I was researching this exact same thing. It's because it can only be unlocked with the T-Mobile unlock app that comes on the T-Mobile firmware (unless something has changed recently). so the steps there are to get T-Mobile to unlock it (DM via twitter @TMobileHelp) and then run the sim unlock app and choose "permanent unlock".OP7P Update:
✅ Plug phone into PC, convert T-mobile software to International version (fairly easy, and saved me about $50 compared to buying the international version)
✅ Turn iMessage and FaceTime settings off on iPhone SE
✅ Install Flight Icon pack so all apps have a nice, flat, white icon scheme. Can't believe how nice you can make it look.
✅ Apply glass screen protector
Still Need to
• Carrier unlock the T-mobile phone (the seller neglected to do this. Not for nefarious reasons but because he hadn't sold a phone before, and though he paid it off, he needed to take the extra step and use the Unlock app and request a permanent unlock before mailing it to me. He should be remedying the situation today)
• Pop out the Verizon SIM from the iPhone and insert it into OnePlus
• Have Verizon set up her line as CDMA-less
• Install GCam
• Receive case in the mail, protect this $500 piece of slippery glass
Even though I got to try the phone out in a store, I was still blown away by the size of the phone. It's a phablet. Also amazed by the silky smoothness of the screen.
I had started to get worried about the curved edges after hearing so many complaints, or people citing it as the reason not to buy the 7 Pro. But my worries dissolved. It's not like the display is curved, really, it's just that the edges are curved glass. I didn't get the sense of any real distortion or anything like that.
Definitely jealous of my wife for getting this phone, but she needs it more than me.
I think it's either PWM or DC Dimming so yes it eliminate PWM. The screen flickers much less with DC Dimming and is much better for people sensitive to the PWM screen flickering. I read once it has downsides too but I'm not sure what they are.Can anyone tell me if the DC dimming feature eliminates PWM on this phone?
