Cameras aren’t usually the strongest part of a foldable phone. OEMs tend to focus on smoothing out the crease, slimming down the hardware, and figuring out how to make Android look good on the big screen, at least for the first few generations. Only then do they start bringing the cameras up to speed. In the case of OnePlus, however, its brand-new Open feels like it was born on third base thanks to its co-development with OPPO, a company that’s well-versed in the foldables rat race.
As a result, OnePlus skipped much of the initial teething process and jumped right to a refined setup that lands among the best foldable phones, but is it good enough to claim the title of best camera on a foldable phone? I’ve spent some time testing the phone out, and while our full review is still in the works, I’ve already got a lot of thoughts on the OnePlus Open camera suite that I need to get off my chest.
