Both 8 MP telephoto lenses are quite inconspicuous on the data sheet. Nevertheless, the qualitative difference between the OnePlus 8 Pro and the 7T Pro is most visibly pronounced in everyday use of the zoom cameras. The ultra wide-angle cameras of the two OnePlus smartphones also operate at different levels in terms of photo quality. Here, the OnePlus 8 Pro is clearly ahead, not surprising since the older Sony IMX586 still functions as the primary camera sensor for 7T Pro.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is superior to its predecessor in every respect, but the difference between the IMX586 and IMX689 is less than expected.
We would have hoped for a bigger jump in the main cameras, though. The larger physical pixels of the IMX689 capture more light, which ultimately results in better illuminated subjects with less image noise, but its head start is only really noticeable in very poor lighting conditions. The 8 Pro does a better job in daylight as well, but at a similar level.
