Last year’s OnePlus 8 Pro was a departure for the company. It marked a more expensive, more premium phone than previous OP (OnePlus) models. The 9 Pro is an expansion of this philosophy, packing better cameras and more high-end features than ever before. To put it simply: This is the best phone OnePlus has ever built.

Pros

  • Good HDR handling
  • Strong gaming performance
  • Impressive camera array

Cons

  • Uninspiring audio
  • Video short on subtlety

The OnePlus 9 Pro is far from perfect, it’s main issue with battery seem to be something you will experience with all flagship phones this year. The camera is excellent, not quite the best, but its performance is relative to the price and I prefer it to the Mi 11.

Working with boutique camera maker Hasselblad, OnePlus promised big changes to its camera system—but the benefits are minimal on the OnePlus 9 Pro. Instead, we get a fantastic upgrade to the display and a new sleek design.

Read more on pcworld.com

Pros

  • Beautiful and fast display
  • Amazingly fast charging capabilities
  • Ultra-wide camera improvements

Cons

  • Price continues to climb
  • Hasselblad partnership doesn't offer much -- yet
  • Inconsistent batter performance

The OnePlus 9 Pro is a mature evolution of last year's flagship that doubles down on the area where the Chinese maker has traditionally been weaker than its main rivals – the camera system. The Hasselblad partnership sees OnePlus address this head on and, as a result, the OnePlus 9 Pro offers the best camera system of any OnePlus phone ever made.

Pros

  • Best camera system on a OnePlus phone
  • Powerful hardware and rapid performance
  • Stylish, premium design
  • Charging and wireless charging tech is superb
  • Slick and intuitive user interface

Cons

  • Very much an evolution of the OnePlus 8 Pro
  • Battery life is good but not best in class
  • OnePlus 9 offers better value for money

With a gorgeous design, a beautiful screen and tons of power, the OnePlus 9 Pro is a solid Android flagship.

Pros

  • Beautiful, classy design
  • Vibrant, pin-sharp display
  • Masses of processing power
  • Exceptionally fast charging

Cons

  • No expandable storage
  • Battery life could be better.
  • Cameras don't hit the high water mark that other features do

With the Pro, OnePlus tries to address the series' historically biggest issue: the cameras. However, even with support from Hasselblad, it still doesn't quite hit the mark in that regard. But the rest of the phone impresses, with fast wireless charging truly brilliant, and the display being top notch too.Read full verdict

Pros

  • Speedy and fluid performance
  • Great display
  • Primary camera is strong
  • Fast wired and wireless charging is a game-changer
  • Responsive and customisable software

Cons

  • Zoom camera is poor
  • Colours from ultra-wide and primary cameras don't match
  • Glossy finish is slippery and attracts fingerprints

OnePlus just can't catch a break these days — and it's pretty much the company's own fault. Right on the heels of a praiseworthy update commitment

Pros

  • 50W is ridiculously fast faster than any non OnePlus phone in the US can charge with a wire Insane
  • The Hasselblad colors are great and can sometimes be much closer to what the eye sees
  • Wireless charging speed
  • OnePlus' trademark feature lets you flip between ringer modes faster and more easily than any other Android phone, and I always love it
  • Camera colors
  • Wired charging speed
  • Screen
  • Alert slider
  • Smooth, bright, accurate colors, and generally uniform it's a good display
  • OnePlus extended its update promise to three years of OS upgrades and four years of security patches, making it one of the category leading options
  • Comfort tone
  • Updates
  • Among the fastest phones you can buy right now OnePlus has been caught throttling performance in popular apps, making speeds inconsistent
  • Again, I don't understand why every phone doesn't have this feature Ambient light matching color makes everything easier on the eyes, and every phone at every price should have it
  • OnePlus' 65W charging is the fastest you can get in the US, and I can't stress how convenient it is This may sound dramatic, but super fast charging like this changes how you use a phone
  • Speed

Cons

  • General camera performance
  • 5G carrier compatibility
  • OnePlus's flavor of Android is loaded with tiny weird issues, and once new models land and OnePlus forgets about this phone, that's probably only going to get worse
  • 5G in the US remains a bad time, and this phone only plays nice with T Mobile and Verizon right now AT&T customers will only have LTE
  • FP sensor location
  • Price
  • Update quality
  • Although some early benchmarks showed unexplainable incongruities, it appears OnePlus has been further diminishing device performance with updates, optimizing power consumption in a way that selectively makes certain apps worse
  • Oxygen OS isn't a first class ROM anymore
  • It's too close to the chin and not very ergonomic to hit
  • While colors are improved, OnePlus' processing is still muddy, detail destroying, and generally inconsistent It's better than prior OnePlus phones, but not as good as the competition
  • OnePlus never actually delivered the 969 base model to the US, as it previously claimed it would, and 1069 is too much for what you get here
  • It's more consistent now, but 6 hours of screen on time is only mediocre for a phone of this size and price
  • So so battery life
  • The company has a dubious record for prompt OS updates with a history of buggy releases and an inconsistent release cycle at times And sometimes those updates reduce
  • Performance

The OnePlus 9 Pro is one of the best Android phones of the year, and proves that with a bit of focus, OnePlus can nail almost everything.

OnePlus 9 Pro is among the best smartphones that money can buy right now. We do not think that this year’s best OnePlus mobile is as superior to the competition as last year’s top model OnePlus 8 Pro. This is partly due to the fact that this year, in our opinion, OnePlus has launched a product that is a little more anonymous and a little less OnePlus distinctive, than we could wish for. But it’s also because Samsung in particular this year has come on the scene with a top model that is just incredibly difficult to beat.
