The touches are not consistent and I apologise that most of the video is nothing but the only time the phone was touched during the recording of this display was to cancel the dialogue box that was open.
Separately, the OnePlus 7 Pro has been reported to have done exceedingly well in the home market, with the first sale figures exceeding CNY 1 billion in one minute on JD.com, making it the best-selling product on the website.
This isn't the first time OnePlus was caught misleading when it comes to the camera on its devices.

It also called on the government to help clarify national security concerns surrounding Chinese manufactured smartphones. If you're feeling bewildered trying to keep up with the never-ending references to Huawei in the news, you're not alone.
Both modes use the same lens and sensor, but somehow the image produced in Portrait mode is of a wider angle and at a higher resolution - 13MP in Portrait mode compared to 8MP in 3x "zoom" mode. In other words, OnePlus is using the sensor's native 2.2x zoom factor for portraits but cropping the sensor's output for 3x zoom. While not technically incorrect on OnePlus' behalf it is misleading. OnePlus advertises the telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, but it turns out that's not actually the case. The new version of the app adds new features and modes to the camera.
The 3X zoom has been the biggest addition to OnePlus' camera system and OnePlus has been proudly stating that it achieves a lossless 3X optical zoom. Of course, it's not the same as having a true optical lens that moves along a focal plain; phone sensors interact with lenses of fixed focal lengths, and when we extrapolate those focal lengths we confer meaning by using a 35mm sensor-size equivalent.
Now that we have that cleared up we can all move along.
When they did the comparison, it looks like the actual "optical zoom" is around 2.2X instead of 3.0X.
After launch, different reviewers have tested the pop-up motor of the OnePlus 7 Pro in many ways including a 12 hour-long stress test, water test, and so on.
