The OnePlus 9 proves to be a successful high-end smartphone in our review, and it convinces with a very nice OLED display, good battery life, appealing connectivity (USB 3.1, wireless charging,...), and very smooth performance. Compared with the OnePlus 8T, the entry into the 2021 models now costs 100 Euros (~$118) more. However, the OnePlus 9 still doesn't have an IP rating, and we found more than just improvements in direct comparison with the predecessor.

Compared with the Xiaomi Mi 11, the OnePlus 9 still offers a strong overall package and will probably be the better smartphone for most users, although personal preferences can certainly lead to a different result. The Xiaomi smartphone feels thinner and easier to handle due to its more curved back, and it also scores points with the brighter and sharper 1440p panel in terms of the display. We also see slight advantages for the Xiaomi Mi 11 when it comes to the speakers.

But especially in terms of battery life, the OnePlus 9 is in a different league with over 14 hours in our Wi-Fi test with an adjusted display brightness of 150 cd/m². OnePlus also handles heat development and the reliability of the fingerprint sensor better. A detailed camera comparison between the OnePlus 9 and the Xiaomi Mi 11, in which the installed camera modules and the photos taken are analyzed in more detail, will follow soon.

Are you interested in this premium smartphone from OnePlus? If so, you can get a detailed impression of the OnePlus 9 in our extensive review.

I have always been very passionately interested in mobile technologies, especially smartphones. Being a tech enthusiast means the half-life of my devices isn’t exactly long, and being the latest hardware is not enough to suffice as the manufacturer and operating system play a minor role – the most important aspect for me is that the device is state-of-the-art. After posting for Mobi Test I joined Notebookcheck in 2016, where I have been pursuing my enthusiasm for technology by reviewing the latest smartphone, tablet, and accessory trends.

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.
