|Image resolution||8700 x 5800|
|8K video recording||No|
|4K video recording||60 FPS|
|1080p video recording||Up to 60FPS|
|Lenses||(50 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP)|
OnePlus Ace has 3 cameras at the back and the main camera is awesome. The OnePlus Ace main Camera is 50 megapixel Sony IMX 766 F/1.9. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.9, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This OnePlus Ace can record video at 4K at 60 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the high-end processor. You can also record 4K at 30FPS which will contain even more details and will be sharper. There is Optical image stabilization on the main lens only. This is quite impressive, this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. You will say goodbye to that blurry shots and unstable videos. The OnePlus Ace has 2 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.
|Triple||50 MP, f/1.9, 24mm (wide), 1/1.56″, 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS
8 MP, f/2.2, 16mm, 120˚ (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro)
|Features||LED flash, HDR, panorama|
As I mentioned above that this 50 MP sensor is good. But this OnePlus Ace has 2 more camera lenses. There is another camera sensor of 8MP which is an ultra-wide camera. The field of view is 16mm which is wider. This camera sensor also has some amazing autofocus. This sensor can take amazing shots with high accuracy. Its aperture is F/2.2, which makes it sharp and contains good tons on subjects. This OnePlus Ace has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization. There is another 2MP macro camera which is useless in most situations because it’s only 2MP.
|Single||16 MP, f/2.4, 26mm (wide), 1/3.09″, 1.0µm|
|Video||[email protected], gyro-EIS|
When it comes to selfie cameras the OnePlus Ace has a single punch whole camera of 16MP which has the largest pixels. This single-punch whole camera contains some awesome details when it comes to daytime shots. At night time this camera sensor struggles a lot. And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.4 which means the photos will look not accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will suffer a lot at night because the sensor is not that wide to capture more light thus leaving us in disappointed. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 1080P at 30FPS only.
|Wi-Fi standard||Wi-Fi 6|
|USB type||USB Type-C|
This OnePlus Ace is launching with the Wi-Fi 6 which is faster, more efficient, and gives you less latency when compared to the Wi-Fi 5. Which will make the user experience smoother and faster. There is also the support of Bluetooth 5.2. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.1. OnePlus Ace has the USB type C gen 2.0 support which makes sense because of the 120 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with the data transfer because it helps with the faster read and write speeds. OnePlus Ace also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.
|Speakers||Yes, with stereo speakers|
|Headphone audio jack||No|
The OnePlus Ace comes with stereo speakers. This OnePlus Ace has nice sound quality with a nice amount of bass in it. This will help in gaming because there are two speakers one at the bottom and one at the top which will help gamers. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.
The OnePlus Ace is going to launch in three different colors. Black and Blue. OnePlus is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the black color because it looks better than these two colors.
This smartphone is costing around $400 which is way cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 13 pro max.
If you are looking for a good Mid-Flagship phone, good gaming phone, good design, good display, and amazing performance then this OnePlus Ace is worth buying. Because it has all the needs that a good consumer needs.
