OnePlus 8 review: Watered down yet still worthy

OnePlus 8

The OnePlus 8 may not be a "Pro" or "Plus" model, but it's not necessarily a lightweight. This Snapdragon 865-powered phone carries over a lot of the sex appeal from the larger OnePlus 8 Pro, with features such as a 90Hz display and rapid charging, for $200 less.
