With the OnePlus 9 Pro, the manufacturer has made a great effort to ensure that the battery is quickly full again. It's even supposed to be recharged super fast wirelessly now. We took a look at whether this is true.

Having a large battery in a smartphone is all well and good, but it's annoying when it takes forever to recharge the battery. For many phone generations, OnePlus has relied on comparatively bulky chargers that contain most of the charging technology. This allows charging with much higher power without overheating the smartphone.

With the OnePlus 9 Pro, the manufacturer takes this a step further: The OnePlus 8T already had two battery cells that could be charged at up to 65 watts, but wireless charging has been improved even further this time. With a special wireless charger, which OnePlus offers for 70 Euros (~$82), both battery cells can be charged simultaneously, and the smartphone achieves a charging speed of up to 50 watts when topping up the battery wirelessly.

The manufacturer specifies charging times of 43 minutes for a full charge in wireless mode and 29 minutes using the power adapter. Needless to say, we examined these rates in our review of the OnePlus 9 Proand we can confirm them. In addition, the smartphone replenishes 10% or 20% of the battery charge in a few minutes, so that you can be mobile again for a few hours even when charging only for a short time.

OnePlus has also improved battery life once again: The OnePlus 9 Pro reaches 16:42 hours in our Wi-Fi test.

Another new feature is the cooperation with the Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad, which is meant to improve photo quality. However, the cooperation is still limited to software for now, and the OnePlus 9 Pro delivers a very good picture quality in our review, but it still lacks a bit of accuracy in details compared with high-end smartphones that are even more expensive.

The price of the OnePlus 9 Pro is once again below 1,000 Euros (~$1,172), and it offers a lot that even more expensive phones can do in return. If you want to learn more about the smartphone, we recommend our detailed review of the OnePlus 9 Pro.

I initially wrote about gaming laptops when I joined Notebookcheck in 2009. I was then involved with the setup of the comparison portal Notebookinfo and worked with social media concepts for large companies like BMW and Adidas, while also returning to work for Notebookcheck in 2012. Nowadays, I focus on smartphones, tablets, and future technologies. Since 2018 I have been Managing Editor for mobile device reviews, working alongside my colleague Daniel Schmidt.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
