OnePlus 9 Review

Lisa Gade reviews the OnePlus 9, the more affordable of two Android phones OnePlus released in spring 2021. The OnePlus 9 runs Android 11 on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 CPU with your choice 128GB or 256GB storage. Like the OnePlus 9 Pro, it features cameras co-developed with Hasselblad, and has a 48MP main camera and the same 50MP ultrawide as the Pro, but no telephoto lens. The smartphone is available unlocked or from T-Mobile in the US and it supports 5G (carrier support varies). It has a flat 6.55” OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, 65 watt super fast Warp wireless charging and it supports 15 watt Qi wireless charging. It competes with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

The OnePlus 9 is a very good phone that holds its own against other (often more expensive) flagships. It has all the things that truly matter: a great screen, excellent performance, good battery life, and a capable camera. But for better or worse, it still doesn’t feel quite like a device that’s well-suited for the mainstream. It misses a couple of features present on the competition like a stabilized main camera and broad 5G support.

90% OnePlus 9 review: The killer feature here is the camera
Source: The Indian Express English
OnePlus 9 is being positioned as the phone for most people, a move intended to take on the iPhone 12. There aren’t drastic changes made to the OnePlus 9, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The display, new camera system, performance, and battery life all stand out. The reason I probably think you would want to pick the OnePlus 9 is because of the cameras though. If you are someone jumping straight from the OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 6, the OnePlus 9 does offer a huge improvement in the camera system. I think OnePlus never wanted to make OnePlus 9 an extraordinary device in the first place. The idea has always been to address the issues consumers had with the camera on previous-generation models.

The OnePlus 9 comes with a fix for the most glaring flaw of prior OnePlus flagships: courtesy of a partnership with Hasselblad, the cameras offer better color correction, and both regular and ultra-wide photos look great. The lack of a telephoto lens and other flagship perks found on its Pro sibling aren’t missed too much, given the relatively low price you're paying for high specs and very fast charging. If you’re hunting for a flagship Android phone at an affordable price, the OnePlus 9 is worth considering.

At a starting price of Rs 49,999, the OnePlus 9 will not be an easy recommendation. However, when you consider the overall package that includes the flagship-grade Snapdragon 888 SoC, 120Hz display, a massive battery with 65W fast charging, and a promise of timely updates - then the OnePlus 9 seems a great value device.

90% OnePlus 9 Review – What you gain and lose VS OnePlus 9 Pro
Source: Slashgear English
The OnePlus 9 is very, very similar to the OnePlus 9 Pro. Today we’re going to decide if it’s worth buying one over the other – and if it’s time to upgrade from an older OnePlus device. The OnePlus 9 Pro is approximately $240 more than the non-Pro device, comparing both devices with their lowest-tier base pricing. Both have the same display, Hassleblad branding, and a similar camera setup – so what’s the difference?

OnePlus 9 initial review: Two steps forward one step back?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The design may not have wowed us that much, but OnePlus knows its users are all about getting the best performance out of every area of its phones. So if cutting corners and adding in a plastic frame means being able to stick two flagship cameras on the back, add wireless charging, a capacious battery, and market-leading speed, then we think that's a compromise worth making.

Source: Tom's Guide English
Until now, the biggest argument against OnePlus' phones has been the camera performance. While some inconsistencies remain, our OnePlus 9 review found that the new phone performs much better in that department when compared to the leading flagships. You'd still favor photos from the likes of the iPhone or the Google Pixel, but OnePlus is at least now in the conversation.

I said the OnePlus 9 Pro was the best phone OnePlus has ever made and while it over-delivers in every category save for its camera, its price might give you pause. While the standard OnePlus 9 might not share the Pro moniker of its bigger brother, it packs in everything that's most exciting about its sibling and comes with a lower price to boot.

The OnePlus 9 is a more comprehensive affordable flagship package than ever before. However, there are some familiar caveats necessary to keep the price down and it may not be the best value proposition on the market right now. Even so, this is definitely a phone that should be on your shortlist if you want amazing specs and a near-premium experience without breaking the bank.

OnePlus 9 First Impressions: Evolutionary Upgrade
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The OnePlus 9 is the more affordable smartphone in the series, and considering its features and price, it might be the more popular one too. The new rear cameras and increase in processing power give it a nice boost over the OnePlus 8T, but on the other hand, the fact that it has a polycarbonate frame instead of aluminium really puts a damper on things. Other than these things, it's not too different compared to its predecessor.

As reviewers, it's hard to get excited about the OnePlus 9. Just as it was hard to get excited about the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 7. As a phone, it's perfectly adequate and for the most part it's quite nice to use. But at $729 starting price, it's supposed to be nice. The brakes on the OnePlus price hike train stopped working years ago and the company clearly has no plans on slowing down. So then why are things being taken away instead of being added?

Sandwiched between the OnePlus 9 Pro and the OnePlus 9R, the OnePlus 9 appears to be a very different proposition from its predecessors. The OnePlus 9 does not simply play second fiddle to the more expensive Pro OnePlus device. Instead, it now exists as the middle-child attempting to strike a fine balance between price and premium features. As a consequence of its price, the OnePlus 9 will also face far greater competition than the previous generation non-pro OnePlus phones.

The OnePlus 9 gets you a much better camera array than the OnePlus 8T for just a fraction more, but we get downgraded from a lovely metal sides to a fancy kind of plastic. Is the sacrifice worth it? We think so, especially as the wide camera also gets an upgrade and you can now shoot 8K video in two fields of view.

If the OnePlus 9 really ends up costing as low as $699, it sounds that it might be a killer deal. The flagship price point of yesteryear, but the flagship specs of today? Yes, please. The only place where it might lag behind the OnePlus 9 Pro, it seems, is the camera department. But if the OnePlus 9 camera is as adequate as the OnePlus 8’s — that may be an easy pill to swallow.

OnePlus:

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Shenzhen OnePlus Science & Technology Co., Ltd. was founded in 2013. The first smartphone was launched in 2014.

It is a subsidiary of BBK Electronic Corporation, a Chinese giant electronic company group, which contains Oppo and Vivo, too. Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus combined had a world market share of more than 10% in the smartphone business in 2016. This exceeded even the Huawei share and resulted in rank 3 behing Samsung and Apple. Furthermore, it was an increase of about 140% compared to 2015. However, OnePlus is the smallest of the three BBK-smartphone manufacturers.

There are not too many reviews on OnePlus smartphones, the ratings are above average (as of 2016).


83.95%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
