  • I got my OnePlus 9 in the mail yesterday. Today was my first full day with the device. In terms of the device, I love it. I love the build quality, the screen, OxygenOS. I think for a stock Android skin I much prefer Oxygen over OneUI from Samsung. As I stated in my previous comment about the phone before buying it, my phone is not my primary camera. I have not been using my phone camera as my primary camera since I got my Sony a6600 and found a camera bag that I liked. My a6600, when I am not working, goes with me wherever I go. In the times it doesn't the OnePlus 9 camera will be just fine. The only true gripe that I have about the phone is the price. I think that this phone is $600 at best. If it wasn't for the fact that this device comes in black, I would be inclined to return it and go with 8T.. This phone is great for an average consumer who doesn't use their phone camera as a primary shooter. No phone and I mean no phone, even with night mode, there is no Phone Camera out there right now that I would use my primary camera, there just isn't. Great phone, don't believe everything you hear about it.

  • the revolving door of the smartphone world....upgrade this, remove that, never releasing an option that includes everything the user expects....its a gd joke. We're never going to see a device that has all the obvious high end expectations, or that company will have put themselves out of business. Same can be said for those fine idiots at Qualcomm, releasing minor improvements every release will keep them in business for decades. And don't get me started on the overly inflated prices....does Samsung really need a 60% margin to get by??.. with the marginal improvements there sure the hell isn't R&D hidden in that bulsh.

  • if u want better camera..if u have sense..ull buy midrange dslr or compact cameras which have flip screen and good video....even 1 lakh iphone 12 max can't match the quality of 50k canon dual pixel camera is for occasional plus is very good brand...they provide overall's easy for u guys to just sit and speak shit about it..can any mobile camera match with good dslr pic guys are trapping people mind and manipulating to buy expensive samsung iphone moves where camera images are oversharpened and unnatural colors..

  • I have come across this same problem also. I have the money to buy the pro version but don't want the curve edge screen but the model with the flat screen loses the features I want. I almost bought an iPhone 12 even though I'm a android fan boy but luckily the OnePlus 8t came along.

  • Downgrad the 9 to make the 9 pro look better. On point. I can understand when they do this with some features like screen resolution etc. But the camera? All the Hasselblad hype and then they strip off the OIS ? Good job

  • I don't get why people care so much about phone cameras, and why manufacturers put so much emphasis on them. Most people, especially"phone enthusiasts" will rarely ever use the camera, other than using it for a few days just to see how good the camera is

  • I have been a oneplus user since the oneplus one. The oneplus x was the best value phone in my mind, and one of my favorite phones ever... That with the increased pricing over time made me extra exited when the nord came out, but man did they fall from there throne. Seeing the pricing on the 9 and 9 pro, with the clear upsell to the pro. And the missing DNA and bad quality from the nord. I am sad to say I'm switching brands... the nord is my final goodby to a once proud brand.

  • They have OP9R for the budget consumers and 9Pro for the Flagship consumers. Now instead of making a good phone in between them now , they decided to make a decoy that makes other 2 options seem better and boost their sales....and then fix this hassle by introducing the OnePlus9T version later that will truly act as bridge between the 9R and 9Pro...

  • When I switched from the Xiaomi Mi9T I had 2 options, Google Pixel or OnePlus, because I wanted a stock Android experience. But seeing more and more people complain about the slow software updates and the removal of features I decided on a Pixel phone. Weirdly enough, Samsung is now a good choice for those that are concerned about software support.
