Is OnePlus 10 Pro available in United States or not?

How much of an impact do the lack of an 80W charging port and a 12GB RAM model have?

As far as Android phones go, this is one of the finest we’ve ever used. It turns out that the two major features that the U.S. edition lacks aren’t all that significant.

OnePlus has previously released flagships with both 8GB and 12GB RAM options, but this time the company will only sell the 8GB model in the United States. Additionally, the 80W charging mechanism is accessible in every country except the United States and Canada, where it is incompatible with local A/C requirements. The OnePlus 10 Pro can only be charged at 65 watts in these two countries.

As soon as I learned about the OnePlus 10 Pro’s spec discrepancies, I began to question if North American phone owners were receiving a subpar product or if the additional 4GB RAM and 15W charging made no difference. To discover out, I conducted a series of experiments.

80W charging on the OnePlus 10 Pro is better than 65W, but just somewhat.

You’d anticipate the 80W charger to charge the OnePlus 10 Pro’s battery faster than the 65W charger, and that’s a valid expectation. However, our tests demonstrate that increasing the power of the charger yields diminishing returns.

65W charging at the TG lab loaded the battery to 55% capacity in 15 minutes, and 93% capacity in 30 minutes. With an amazing result, the 80W system makes our list of the fastest phones to charge.

Once again, based on our own testing, the 80W system was able to charge our U.K. test unit to 63 percent capacity in 15 minutes and to 98 percent capacity in 30 minutes. Even while it’s faster, it’s still not by much. Faster charging is more important if you’re in a hurry, however keeping the phone for longer reduces the benefit of 80W. The U.K. 10 Pro came away with a hollow triumph.

There is no difference in performance between OnePlus 10 Pro’s 8GB and its 12GB RAM.

Geekbench 5 and Wild Life Extreme Unlimited by 3DMark are two benchmarks we’ll use to evaluate the OnePlus 10 Pro 8GB and 12GB models’ performance, respectively.

Using Geekbench 5, the 8GB version of the 10 Pro scored 995 on the single core test and 3,482 on the multi-core test; it also managed 2,574 points and an average frame rate of 15.4 on Wild Life Extreme Unlimited. The 12GB model, on the other hand, achieved Geekbench scores of 989 and 3,309 and Wild Life Extreme Unlimited scores of 2,531 and 15.2 frames per second.

Even though the difference is negligible, the larger RAM version has been rated lower overall. This might be because of the chips we were given to test, or because of the different conditions under which the experiments were carried out. Adding more RAM shouldn’t hurt, but it doesn’t appear to make a difference in terms of performance.

As far as I know, I’ve never had any issues with the 12GB OnePlus 10 Pro, which handles high-performance games and many apps at once with ease. It doesn’t appear like the additional RAM has much of an impact on performance.

Wherever you buy it, the OnePlus 10 Pro is a quality product.

Users outside the United States, not those who spend an additional £100 for the 12GB model, appear to be receiving a bad bargain, according to my first hypothesis. In spite of the increased storage that comes with the high RAM model, it seems that having more RAM does not improve the phone’s performance.

There isn’t much of a difference between the 65W standard and the 80W charging on the default 10 Pro model outside of North America. Charging for less than 15 minutes seems to make a difference, which may be advantageous in certain cases but not in all.

Instead of dwelling on the negative, let us focus on the positive. There’s just one model available in the United States of the OnePlus 10 Pro, which still relies on 65W charging, but even so, it’s exactly as nice as the one that you’d receive in the rest of the world. Customers will benefit from this, even if I will no longer be able to boast about superior test models than my American colleagues.
