Reviews for the OnePlus 9

87.1% OnePlus 9 smartphone review: Strong OnePlus phone without major progress | Notebookcheck
The OnePlus 9 offers very good technical features on paper, but is it worth it to make the switch from the OnePlus 8T? And can the cameras of the OnePlus phone live up to the hype surrounding the cooperation with the renowned Swedish manufacturer Hasselblad? Our review of the OnePlus 9 will reveal the answers to this.
87.1% Xiaomi Mi 11 vs. OnePlus 9 smartphone camera comparison: Disappointments on both sides | Notebookcheck

87.1% OnePlus 9 vs. OnePlus 8T smartphone camera comparison: Is Hasselblad the winner or is it OIS? | Notebookcheck
After several camera updates and just in time for the market launch of the OnePlus 9, we compare the cameras of the latest high-end phones from OnePlus. Our review features the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 8T. Although the 2021 model has a Hasselblad-branded camera setup on the back, it lacks the OnePlus 8T's IOS.
90% OnePlus 9 review: Camera upgrades make this a must-have phone
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. Those improved cameras means that the OnePlus 9 should also be in the conversation if you're wondering which phone to get. Not only is the OnePlus 9 cheaper than the Galaxy S21, it also outperforms that phone. In fact, you can even expect performance on par with the ROG Phone 5, making this an affordable option for gamers. And the fast-charging, long-lasting battery on the OnePlus phones continues to impress. If you've been unsure about whether OnePlus is worth a gamble over devices from more established phone makers, let the OnePlus 9 be your assurance that this phone can hold its own against any Android device.

The OnePlus Nord ticks all the right boxes: you get a 90Hz AMOLED display, robust hardware, 48MP camera at the back and dual cameras up front, clean software with the promise of timely updates, and 30W fast charging. OnePlus did a fantastic job distilling the essence of its flagships into the Nord, and the result is one of the best mid-range phones available today.

70% OnePlus 9 Series Review: Flagship Phones Worth Considering, Especially If You Are a T-Mobile or Verizon Customer
Source: Gear Diary English
The OnePlus 9 starts at $729, where the OnePlus 9 Pro starts at $969, and that’s a $240 difference. You’re the only one who can decide if the telephoto camera, QHD+ display, and faster wireless charging found on the 9 Pro justify its expense. But if I were buying one today, and if I was on T-Mobile, I’d likely go for the OnePlus 9. Both flagships share so many excellent features that it wouldn’t even feel like a sacrifice.

OnePlus 9 review: Competent but lacks fancy bells and whistles of Pro model
Source: Business Standard English
Starting at Rs 49,999, the OnePlus 9 is a competent premium smartphone despite the absence of some premium features of the Pro model. It makes a good upgrade for OnePlus enthusiasts looking for a newer model on budget. For others, there are other Android smartphones in the same segment like the Mi 11X Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G that offer better value for money. That said, the entry-level premium smartphone segment is flourishing but not all phones are equal. Therefore, it’s best that you compare the models thoroughly before making a purchase decision.

86% OnePlus 9 5G – Review
Source: Cool Smartphone English
The starting price of £629 for the entry version does put it up against some stiff competition from the likes of Samsung and also from Xiaomi with the Mi 11 coming in at a very similar price. The good news is due to the software implementation and continual and reliable updates from OnePlus I think it has enough to edge out the competition, they just need to embrace the Hasselblad partnership more to eke out the best from the cameras to make it really competitive.

OnePlus 9 5G Review

At PHP 38,990, the OnePlus 9 5G is slowly approaching a price level many of us would consider as flagship, so the omission of OIS and the lack of an IP rating might be a bit of a downer. However, despite these misses, the OnePlus 9 5G is still undoubtedly a solid flagship for all the features we’ve known OnePlus to excel on, from its dedication to packing the fastest hardware around to the minor tweaks that make Oxygen OS 11 tick.

80% OnePlus 9 review, one month later: I recommend this phone... barely
Source: Android Police English
The OnePlus 9 nails a lot of things—it's fast, has a great screen, charges obscenely quickly, and it's a good value next to the 9 Pro. From the moment you pick up the OnePlus 9, it's full-speed ahead with smooth animations and scarcely a hint of lag. I really enjoy using this phone, and I'm willing to overlook shortcomings like the middling primary camera and only kinda fast wireless charging. I love that I have basically stopped worrying about how much charge this phone has. If I find I need to step out (an admittedly uncommon occurrence these days), I know I can plug in the Warp Charger and have more than enough juice by the time I've put on pants and found my keys.

90% OnePlus 9 review: The best phone for under $750
Source: Laptop Mag English
The OnePlus 9 is a compelling option for Android users looking for a sub-$1,000 phone that doesn't sacrifice too many features available in pricier flagships. It even punches above its weight class in certain areas, outperforming every Android phone on the market besides its "Pro" relative and enduring for about 11 hours on a charge. It's also worth spotlighting the fast charging feature, which gets you from dead to 100% in about 30 minutes.

OnePlus 9 review: Mostly an upgrade
Source: Talk Android English
OnePlus has accidentally put this phone in a really tough spot. At $729 it’s still relatively affordable in the flagship space, especially next to the $1000+ OnePlus 9 Pro. But we’re far enough along in Samsung’s product lifecycle that you can catch some pretty decent deals on the Galaxy S21 line to get them close in price to what OnePlus is asking.

OnePlus 9 Review
Source: Recombu English
The OnePlus 9 is a very good all-rounder, and should especially appeal to gaming fans due to its powerful processor and brilliant screen. OnePlus has stayed true to its signature “light touch” user interface, and the camera system has been notably improved compared to previous generations. However, the stunning screen does drain the battery quite quickly, and the camera still isn’t yet shoulder-to-shoulder with Apple and Samsung.

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.

I love the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro, a feeling that I've had for OnePlus devices since the OnePlus 7 Pro, but not before that. The only problem, frankly, is the cameras. The cameras are decent, and I do know plenty of people who simply don't care about the camera. It's just that when you look at what Apple and Samsung are selling for similar prices, they're just offering so much more in the camera department.

OnePlus 9 comes with a starting price tag of Rs 49,999. The smartphone is a complete package and is also a powerful performer. The smartphone packs a powerful and high-end Snapdragon processor and runs the latest Android 11 operating system. The camera has been a weak point of OnePlus, with the OnePlus 9 series the company has managed to overcome that as well. The OnePlus 9 also offers the Hasselblad camera which manages to offer some stunning results. A good display, powerful loudspeaker and 65W fast charging are the brownie points which you will get with the smartphone. In our opinion, the OnePlus 9 can be your next smartphone if you have a budget of Rs 50,000.

80% OnePlus 9
Source: PC Mag English
The $730 OnePlus 9 goes up most notably against the Samsung Galaxy S21, which is $700 at Amazon and Best Buy, and the $800 Apple iPhone 12. Just being in that rarefied company is a win for OnePlus. On T-Mobile, at least, the 9 outpaces any current Google Pixel, LG, or Motorola phone thanks to its use of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and OnePlus's typically lovely software. The Galaxy S21 still noses ahead of the OnePlus 9, because the Galaxy S21 has a zoom camera with a 3x lens rather than OnePlus's 2x digital trickery. That's a real advantage. If you prefer OnePlus's fast-and-smooth software experience to Samsung's reputation for manufacturer and carrier bloatware, though, the OnePlus 9 is a very fine phone for the price.

70% Oneplus 9 Review: Small Improvements, Big Marketing, Bigger Premium

The OnePlus 9 sells in India for Rs 49,999 for the 8 GB RAM / 128GB storage variant and Rs 54,999 for its 12 GB RAM variant with 256 GB storage, and you get a one-year warranty with it. That’s a good Rs 7,000 to Rs 9,000 more expensive than the OnePlus 8T with a similar RAM and storage configuration. I don’t have a problem with the company increasing the price of new phones if there are some significant improvements, but that’s not the case here. On the contrary, OnePlus has cut a few corners, a fact made apparent by the plastic frame and lack of OIS on the 9.

OnePlus 9 Review: $729 Plastic Phones Can Be Really Good

If I’m being honest, I would try to talk people into the OnePlus 9 versus the OnePlus 9 Pro. To me, they’re basically the same phone, but you’re getting more value from the OnePlus 9. This phone has a great camera setup, an extremely smooth user experience, that super fast wired charging, and good software that may or may not see timely updates after 12 months. At $729, that seems like a steal to me. The Pixel 5 is $699. This OnePlus 9 is $30 more. It’s not even a question if software updates aren’t a huge priority to you. Get this phone, it’s really good. Does it have a few shortcomings? Sure, but I can argue that you’re still getting one helluva package with all of the specs you really want and need. Just don’t get mad when OnePlus releases the OnePlus 9T later this year. It’ll probably be really, really good.

An efficient, no-nonsense Android phone, the OnePlus 9 (starting at $729.99) takes many things we liked about the OnePlus 8T and puts them on the most modern Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform. The resulting package delivers a fast and smooth Android experience, broad network compatibility (though it lacks the fastest form of Verizon's 5G), and a very capable camera. We do miss optical zoom here, and the impressive cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the Apple iPhone 12 are enough to place them a bit ahead of the OnePlus 9 in our rankings. But if you're less of a photo hound, you'll find a lot to love in the streamlined design and elegant software.

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.

Source: Expert Reviews English
You might be familiar with OnePlus as a brand with a trusted heritage of launching well-priced flagship alternatives, but the OnePlus 9’s new starting price is too high for my tastes - especially when you consider the long list of terrific handsets you could buy for less instead. There’s a good chance I would have made an exception if it did manage to outdo the rest but tally up the scores and the OnePlus 9 is middling at best. There’s no doubt in my mind that you’re better off getting a Pixel 5 or Galaxy S20 FE instead, or perhaps waiting until the OnePlus 9 is predictably superseded in less than six months from now.

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.

The OnePlus 9 is a fantastic phone, with a screen that’s tailor-made for gamers and people who regularly stream movies on their mobile. However, the fact its screen doesn’t feature a variable refresh rate panel puts it a step behind some rivals when it comes to battery life.

90% OnePlus 9 review: Camera upgrades make this a must-have phone
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.

Now that OnePlus has embraced the ultra-premium end with its Pro series and the budget segment with its Nord series, it seems to have refocused on its bread and butter — the value flagship space. The OnePlus 9 delivers just about everything we could ask for in a phone at this price point, with a gorgeous display, solid construction, excellent software experience, and really good cameras.

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?

Source: Think Digit English
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.

Ultimately, OnePlus still gets a lot of things right, like great design, gorgeous displays, superb audio, snappy performance, and wonderful software. And the company learned from last year’s mistakes by giving the OnePlus 9 wireless charging and a better macro shooter. That’s worth celebrating, right?

70% OnePlus 9 review: performance aplenty
Source: 91mobiles English
The OnePlus 9 is a confusing phone, not in a way of underperforming or poor design, but more of how it is priced vis-a-vis the generation of OnePlus phones it is supposed to replace. In essence, the OnePlus 9 is the best performer in its segment but what else does the phone do particularly well, keeping its asking price in mind? Does it have great cameras? Arguably yes, since the new Sony sensors have been used but they are not a very significant leap over previous non-Pro OnePlus cameras. I can definitely see merit with the 50MP ultra-wide sensor which is a huge improvement over the 8T’s 16MP sensor. Battery capacity remains the same and even the charging speeds are identical to last year’s OnePlus 8T.

OnePlus finally gets the camera right on the OnePlus 9
Source: XDA Developers English
The above samples and commentary should make it clear that OnePlus has indeed made noticeable changes to their camera processing, a very welcome change given their previous phones’ reception. Indeed, it even seems that the infamous “indecisive color temperature” issue that I found in every OnePlus device dating back to the OnePlus 6 is finally gone, as this is the first time that I was unable to reproduce it on a review unit. These and other fixes, as well as the change in color science, made it so that this is by far the most refreshing OnePlus camera I’ve ever used.

OnePlus 9 preview and expectations

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.

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).
