Our test of the week
OnePlus succeeded in its bet with its OnePlus 10 Pro
In addition to the photo part which does not reach the level of the competition, the OnePlus 10 Pro is an excellent smartphone.

If we would have liked a more powerful processor than that of its predecessor, the OnePlus 10 Pro remains one of the best smartphones on the market and will be available in France from April 5 from 919 euros.
