OnePlus Ace 3 Pro as a performance flagship, Snapdragon 8 Gen3 performance Iron Triangle is bound to be the standard, and at a time when many cell phones have canceled the 24GB + 1TB top storage, OnePlus still insists on providing this high configuration option.

From here can also be seen, a plus to the pursuit of performance to an incredibly demanding degree, of course, also highlights a plus "will not be" product philosophy, is committed to bringing the best side of the product to the user.

We have a plus Ace 3 Pro for 16GB LPDDR5X 8533Mbps + 512GB UFS4.0 storage version, then we have a series of tests on the theoretical performance of the phone and game performance.

--Theoretical Performance Test

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

The first is the AnTuTu rabbit comprehensive performance test, the total score reached 2,164,500+, compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 equipped OnePlus Ace2 Pro released at the same time last year, the overall performance has been improved by nearly 30.75%, of which the CPU score is 456,600+, and the GPU score is nearly 860,000, which is a result that has reached the leading level of the same platform.

In the CPU single test, the GeekBench6 single-core score of 2211 points, multi-core score of 6872 points, year-on-year improvement of 11.1% and 31.12% respectively.

GPU single test of GFXBench, Aztec Ruins OpenGL, Aztec Ruins Vulkan, Race Chase, Manhattan 3.1, Manhattan off-screen, Tyrannosaurus Rex off-screen, respectively, gave a score of 173 FPS, 191 FPS, 119 FPS, 196 FPS, 330 FPS, 372 FPS.

Finally, we tested the flash memory section and reached a sequential read speed of almost 4.0 GB/s and a sequential write speed of 3.96 GB/s, which is in line with UFS 4.0 and is almost 18% faster compared to the previous generation.

--Gaming Tests

Moving on to the gaming test, we selected 3 popular handheld games, namely Peaceful Elite, Proto-Gods and Wipeout: Star Dome Railroad, under the office environment with a room temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. We chose the highest frame rate under the highest image quality (with the image quality as the priority) to conduct the game test, and recorded the frame rate, power consumption, energy-efficiency ratio, and the temperature performance of the chassis during the game.

1. Peace Elite

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

First of all, the peace elite hand game, in the smooth quality of the picture can be turned on 120 frames, after a game of intense battle, close to 16 minutes of testing, the average frame rate of the game stabilized at 119.41FPS, although the frame rate during the game there is a slight drop in the frame, but does not affect the overall stability of the screen.

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

The average power consumption comes to 5W, and the energy efficiency ratio reaches 23.9FPS/W. Considering that the frame rate has reached 120FPS, this energy efficiency ratio is already very good.

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

In terms of temperature, the back is up to 44.4 degrees Celsius, the high temperature area is located in the lower part of the camera, the ring finger may feel a hint of heat buildup when holding the phone horizontally, but the good thing is that it's not hot.

This is also thanks to the second-generation Tiangong cooling system of strong cooling module support, with the first 2K supercritical thermal conductivity of graphite materials, and cooling area of the same grade the largest 9126mm ² 10,000 single VC cooling module, the heat buildup can be quickly transferred to the back of the cell phone location, thus ensuring the stability and performance of the phone in the high load operation.

2, the original God

The OnePlus Ace 3 Pro is also the first to support the Original God native 120 fps experience, so why is OnePlus able to increase the frame rate of Original God to 120 fps?

This is due to the fact that by deeply optimizing the third-generation Snapdragon 8 chip, the OnePlus Ace 3 Pro phone significantly improves the efficiency of the GPU, which also allows the phone to complete the real-time rendering of high-frame-rate images with zero-latency efficiency, thus providing a smoother ProtoGods gaming experience.

In this regard, we also tested the performance of the OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Original God High Frame Rate.

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

In the original God 120FPS, the same Sumeru City 10 minutes fixed scene running test, the game's frame rate curve almost maintained in the 120FPS position did not fall off, the final average frame rate of the game stabilized at 119.18FPS.

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

In terms of power consumption, the average came to 5.96W, with an energy efficiency ratio of 20.13FPS/W. This energy efficiency ratio has already surpassed all previous Snapdragon 8 Gen3 phones, and it can be said that it is the best Snapdragon 8 Gen3 phone for gaming performance, bar none.

With a power consumption of nearly 6W, the phone inevitably generates more heat.

According to the actual test, after the game runs, the maximum temperature on the back of the phone climbs to 45.1 degrees Celsius.

At this time, if you hold the phone horizontally, the user will feel the accumulation of heat in the palm of the hand is more obvious, in the original God 120FPS mode, we can use the radiator to play the game, but also to ensure that the release of stronger performance and more stable frame rate performance.

3, crash: star dome railroad

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

Finally, we tested a higher load of "Wipeout: Star Dome Railroad" hand game, the highest quality + maximum frame rate, located in the Star Rub Sea Hub running map test 15 minutes, the game's frame rate can be stabilized at 59.41FPS, the middle of the frequency is not down, not drop frames, and there is no previous Snapdragon 8 Gen3 cell phone the kind of "rollercoaster" frame rate scenarios! The most powerful performance phone in terms of battery life!

OnePlus Ace 3 Pro Review

In its pursuit of extreme performance release, the OnePlus Ace 3 Pro adopts a relatively loose power management strategy, hardly implementing too many power interventions, which inevitably leads to higher power consumption.

After the game, the average power consumption of the game is around 6.36W, but the energy efficiency ratio reaches 9.34FPS/W, which is a big jump compared to the previous Snapdragon 8 Gen3 models, no less than the annual peak performance masterpiece of 2024.

High power consumption will inevitably also bring high heat, after 15 minutes of running tests, the highest temperature of the back of the body of the OnePlus Ace 3 Pro even reached 49.4 degrees Celsius, directly approaching 50 degrees Celsius.

Therefore, when playing this kind of high load handball, especially in the hot summer, it is recommended to use additional cooling equipment to assist in heat dissipation.

IV, the image: Sony IMX890 three camera daily photography is enough

A plus Ace 3 Pro rear three camera module, in which the main camera uses the same model of the previous generation of the Sony IMX890 flagship CMOS, 24mm equivalent focal length, 1μm single pixel can bring a higher amount of light intake, which can make the picture more pure in the actual shooting, and at the same time, support for OIS optical stabilization.

The ultra wide-angle uses an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor with a 16mm equivalent focal length and supports a 112-degree field of view.

There's also a 2-megapixel macro lens with sensor model OV02B10 from Howell.

We also shot some sample images with the OnePlus Ace 3 Pro:
