“Every time when there is a photo sent to us due to negative feedback, our engineers are requested to find the same light condition and object of same color and texture to simulate the photo in order to reproduce the same problem,” a staff member noted on the forum, adding that it received dozens of photos each day.

This OnePlus 7 Pro update also arrives after it emerged that the phone is using a 13MP 2.2x telephoto zoom camera, cropping the image to deliver 3x “lossless” zoom at 8MP.

Even though the OnePlus 7 Pro costs less than your typical modern flagship smartphone, you’ll still have to pay at least $669 to pick one up. Instead of paying almost seven Benjamins to get the firm’s latest and greatest, just download the phone’s wallpapers and not pay a dime.

According to XDA-Developers, the OnePlus 7 Pro includes 16 static wallpapers and eight live wallpapers. Most of the wallpapers feature swirling clouds and a glossy combination of colors, with some Fnatic wallpapers also thrown into the mix.

Keep in mind that the live wallpapers are MP4 files. Some apps can help you set video files as live wallpapers if you’re not using a OnePlus device. If you’re using a OnePlus device, there’s an APK that can natively install live wallpapers if your device is running Android 9 Pie.

Downloading the live wallpapers won’t get you the OnePlus 7 Pro’s pop-up selfie camera, 90Hz OLED display, or three rear cameras. That said, downloading wallpapers is a great way to reinvigorate and spruce up your smartphone experience.
