  • Am a OnePlus 6 user. Planning to upgrade. Seeing all reviews, felt 8T is a better bet than 9 Pro. What is your recommend? @dave2D

  • Here's my 2 cents... there's a case in the box, and the sound from the ear piece is a little lower in stereo because it was a bit to loud compared to the bottom in the 8 Pro. I had the 8 Pro for 3 months and I ended up positioning my hand in the bottom speaker trying to balance volume with the top speaker. The 9 pro feels more compact and handy... because it is slightly smaller, and the lot less curvy screen is welcome change. The cameras... well they're great, but not extraordinary as the marketing hype made us believe. It might improve with updates, but until then, it is what it is.

  • Here is the reality..IT's a portable device that sits in a case,in your pcoket,and you can talk,type of it,so duhhhhhh,it's nOT a dedicated camera,no matter who make the damn phone...Next,if anyone expect photographic mastery from a camera phone,they are probably retarded and delusional,if not cheap.Instead,you might as well take what you can,get whatever you want from a cellphone,and BUY A REAL CAMERA,that's really just a camera.I doubt that takes much of an IQ to figure out,and I'm fine with both my OP8 and OP9,which I own/use.I loved my camera on my NOTE 3,and I paid $780 for it,and I'm NOT going to pay $1200+ for a Note/Ultra,which has LESS than the Note 3.Stutter on a OP?NEVER seen that,and this is my third OP phone.There are NO battery issues because OP has the BEST battery management standards.I use this thing called a CASE,and I can care less about if someone thinks my phone is cute,because I am more than 10 years old...Send that phone back if it 'stutters'...$900 is not expensive for a mid flagship,especially with Samsung gives you LESS battery life,NO charger,NO cases,NO cables,and the same basic specs as mine,which isnt even the PLus....

  • complaining about color of the phone is ridiculous. the silver is is great and the whole its not one plus looking phone with the camera bump is dumb also. but the S21 Brick and huge square camera bump is fantastic? the oneplus 9 pro design is better than all the phones out there now.

  • Hasselblad definitely isn't a spotless company. Hasselblad stellar was found to be a rebranded sony camera and sold at a ridiculous markup. So if they can sully their own brand for a quick buck. Why wouldn't they tie up with a phone maker to do the same?

  • Great review as always. No more onplus for me after owning the 7 Pro ; I really don't get it what makes the software special, it has hardly any features and is way too sparse. Just give me everything and the kitchen sink and ill decide what to use and what to switch off. Plus the software support lately is abysmal, and strangely enough that was their selling point before. Much prefer a Xiaomi, better everything for less.

  • I stopped believing in software fixes when the OnePlus 3 could not fix its camera problems. Do your viewers a favor and stop mentioning it as a possible fix for smartphone issues. Why anyone would expect OnePlus to make a good camera, marketing campaign or otherwise, is beyond me. People are gullible.

  • Having a choise between the 9 pro and s21+. Biggest difference for me is between the camera, specs and stuff I can do with both. But having a tough time deciding between camera, 9 pro has more options but when looking at reviews. I'm kinda half and half. Would this be something that will be improved with software update is a big question that comes to mind

  • From a photographer's point of view, the neutral output color of the OP9 pro is really useful for post-producing. By having a subtle and realistic tone in the colors, the photo can be managed in a really good and handy way. Of course, this is a plus only for user like me whose are hobby photographer, for a normal user this might not be the best solution.
