Three colors, three surfaces:

Matte or shiny? This inquiry isn’t difficult to answer with regards to the rear of the OnePlus 9 Pro. The producer offers three unique tones, every one of them with various surfaces. Our survey test comes in Morning Mist, which goes from silver dark to white and offers the most splendid surface.

Pine Green is a dim green with a matte completion that likewise diminishes fingerprints. Heavenly Black is the dark variation that is somewhat unpleasant and helps us to remember a marginally smoother rendition of the Sandstone surface from past OnePlus gadgets.

In contrast to the OnePlus 9, the OnePlus 9 Pro returns with 2.5D glass that bends over the edges. On the OnePlus 8 Pro, unintentional addresses the screen could shoot up on these edges now and again, yet we have the feeling that the maker has figured out how to get this matter taken care of. The side view has barely changed, contrasted with the archetype, and the measurements and weight of the two cell phones vary just possibly.

The completion is perfect and top caliber and the cell phone fits well in the hand. The OnePlus 9 Pro is again guaranteed to the IP68 standard; in this way, it is shielded from harm brought about by residue and water. Be that as it may, OnePlus expressly bars guarantee claims for water harm.

Design and In-hand Feel:

In terms of design OnePlus plays it safe. While most people won’t have a problem with the design its generic design also means you will forget it easily. Maybe the most changes of the design came with the camera Module with its flashy Hasselblad logo. The phone is shorter and narrower than its predecessor which is actually great. These changes in body dimensions make its one-hand usability much nicer. It also feels premium to hold down the phone.

UI:

When it comes to sleek and clean UI while offering usable features Oxygen OS is among the best. OnePlus 9 Pro comes with Oxygen OS version 11. Though the news of Oxygen OS mixing with Color OS can worry some of us it still is snappy and reliable as we are used to know. Although some concerning reports are floating around the web of bugs and stuttering we believe it will be resolved soon with updates. If not, then OnePlus sure has something to worry about.

Performance:

OnePlus 9 Pro scores 3630 in GeekBench 5 (Multi-Core) which is higher than Samsung S21 Ultra with Exynos-2100. In short, it is the most powerful Android phone out there, at least in Synthetic Benchmarks. A few more benchmarks are given below just for the sake of it.

OnePlus 9 Pro comes with quad camera setup consisting of a 48MP main shooter with f1.8, a 50MP f2.2 lens for those delicious wide-angle shots, an 8MP 3.3x Telephoto shooter, and lastly a monochrome sensor.

The collaboration with Hasselblad mainly makes difference in color science with a Cinematic vibe coming off all the sensors. The similarity between the 3 sensors is strikingly good.

This year the wide angle camera got a special love with the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor which offers plenty of details, those rich Hasselblad colors, and good dynamic range. About this point, the improvement ends. The 3.3x optical zoom is a good balance between range and usability but 8MP resolution might kill it for many people. 8MP would be ok if it was a midrange phone but for a flagship it just doesn’t cut it.

Verdict:

OnePlus became famous by building cheap cell phones that could contend with and subvert probably the best gadgets out there. In any case, beginning with last year’s OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus began moving at a similar value level as its greatest rivals. Presently, with the OnePlus 9 Pro, the organization is requesting that individuals pay like never before for their top-of-the-line cell phones. Here’s the breakdown:
