OnePlus 9 is actually sneaky good value right now 👀
OnePlus 9 Pro Review:

Also, correction: The rails of the OnePlus 9 are plastic, the back is glass (that feels quite bad). No metal. On S21 the back is plastic, and the rails are metal. No glass.

The back is actually glass, as far as I'm aware. I find it perplexing, however, that they cheap out on the frame instead of the back; that strategy didn't go well for the Nord.

The most important question is: Are the cameras better than last year flagship, OnePlus 8 Pro 🤔??

Jose Reyes Pred dnevom
Still using the 8. If I can be honest here. This is my first OnePlus phone. I've been wanting one for years. Overall it's basically what people have raved about. In my experience I think the cameras are good. Notice I said good. Not great, not amazing, but good. In good lighting and in slightly lower light, you're in that ball park. I think they still need to improve it. But it's not a deal breaker. Usually with my androids I notice lag and performance issues after a year. Not major but like a stutter, an inconvenience. Nothing like early days. The It's like Samsung and Pixel got together. Customizable while still being light and fast. Quick updates.

Charging issues from the start. Now dead phone :( I got the OnePlus Nord 5G in Feb of 2021. I had previously owned a Oneplus2, which served me great, but it was time to replace it and I wanted to continue with the OnePlus brand and saw great reviews online about this phone. When I got it I noticed a few problems when charging, one of them being that the phone would only charge when the screen was active, if the screen was off/inactive the phone would turn off and not charge. So I had to make sure the screen was lit when I charged it and keep an eye on it to make sure it was. Also, whenever I plugged in the charger, the headphones-icon came up as if I had headphones plugged into the phone, so it wouldn't ring or reproduce any sounds while charging... I tried different things from online searches, like turning off the 'Optimized Charging' feature, and even contacted OPsupport who suggested I do a Factory Reset in case one of my apps had some malware/virus causing the problem. Nothing worked. After a couple of weeks the phone was harder to charge, sometimes I would plug it in and it wouldn't charge at all, I had to plug and unplug several times until I was sure it was charging. And of course I could never let it run out of battery, because if the phone is off it wont charge. I let the battery drain once and spent 3 days plugging and unplugging and using different C-type cables until one day it charged 1% and I was able to turn it on quickly and "do the thing" to have it charge. Finally, on June 12th, I went to charge the phone and a message came up saying there was debris or humidity in the USB port and a "safety feature" wont allow it to charge for this reason. Obviously I cleaned the USB port and the cable, and tried using different chargers but nothing happened. The phone finally died, and now I don't have a phone.. I will be sending the phone for a repair, but the website says if there's damage due to humidity or debris, I will have to pay for the repair and will not be covered under guarantee. Anyone cares to guess what the OPsupport will say when they read "there is humidity or debris on the USB port"? .. yeah.. I can 100% guarantee I have not dropped my phone or put it anywhere where humidity or debris will get into it, and I have used an air blower to make sure its clean and clear of debris, nothing the naked eye can see in the USB port, and as I said the cable works fine with other phones. This "humidity or debris" message just seems like the kind of message a company would program to show up on a device to avoid having to replace their products under guarantee. If OnePlus fixes my problem when I'm able to ship it to them in July (as im not in the US atm) I will be sure to let you guys know how it goes and if I am wrong to assume they will not fix or repair my phone under guarantee. I will apologize and give 5 stars and be back to loving this company. Stay tuned. If anyone else is having this problem please let me know if there is something else I can do I have not tried. ***I posted this comment in the OP Community website and got CENSORED by OnePlus! What does this tell you?***

Just picked one of these up after my 6T had a tragic work related accident lol. So far I'm enjoying it and it feels like a solid upgrade. It's actually a bit over kill for my use case but hopefully it will get to live the life my 6T didn't lol.

@JasonGuitarHand another phone I'm looking at is the Oppo Reno 5 Pro. Looks like it's pretty much the OP 8 except it has ColorOS, 256 gb, 12 gb RAM. Oppo and OnePlus have the same parent company.
Marco Cruz
Marco Cruz Pred 9 dnevi
@JasonGuitarHand and yes.
Marco Cruz
Marco Cruz Pred 9 dnevi
@JasonGuitarHand i love OnePlus 8 and I don't plan on upgrading. But I do regret not going for the Pro initially. This is my first OP, i switched from iPhone.
JasonGuitarHand Pred 9 dnevi
@Marco Cruz would you suggest that the 8Pro is a better value than the 9? Performance, good battery and a great camera is what I'm looking for tbh. I don't mind going for the 8 Pro since I genuinely don't think there will be such a big leap in performance or specs. Thoughts?
Marco Cruz
Marco Cruz Pred 9 dnevi
@JasonGuitarHand honestly, if you don't mind the larger size, the oneplus 8 pro is where it's at. Better camera, 1440p display, 120 hz, 256 gb ROM. And cheaper than the regular 9.
Marco Cruz
Marco Cruz Pred 13 dnevi

I like how Marques goes and says, ???, ??? About the mono camera, I'm like where's the headphone jack and what about the screen mirror not working on my TV, no gorilla glass back ???, ??? Overall, love the video, bought OnePlus 9 in winter mist, right after my LG G8 just got paid off 📴, LG G8 was having trouble charging right, the port, if my LG G8 didn't messed up, I'd wait for Google Pixel 6, but OnePlus 9 is a great phone, better software and updates, better charging, but only slightly better camera's, OnePlus 9 needs a update to fix screen mirror, next OnePlus phone, have gorilla glass back and front, a headphone jack, keep water resistant and solid updates, overall, happy with the phone!

Did anyone here buy this phone? Did, not having the OIS impact you in anyway? And did you get any heating issues for the 888 chip?
Sazal Alam
Sazal Alam Pred 9 dnevi
@Liron Jaden Samuels yup i bought mine two days ago. To be honest i think it depends on what you need. I wanted a snappy phone and got it lol. Camera isnt that important to me. And with the heating issues the phone does heat up a little when i tried 8k videos but then again i probably wont be doing 8k recordings. I dont game on my phone either so far didnt face any heating issues in daily use.

Have been using OnePlus5 since 2017 till now. Amazing phone. Time for a switch to a new one. No option in OnePlus. Amazon reviews say this phone overheats and drains battery. Extremely trusted. Terribly disappointed. Can do with below exceptions: B/W Camera, wireless charging. Just want that Performance man.

Hi, MKBHD, Can you please also comment on planned obsolescence by OnePlus. It is unethical. After update my OnePlus Nord got slower most likely because they are planning Nord 2. My older OnePlus is almost unusable because software updates have made them significantly slower and almost like laggy . Your comment will be very useful for us MKBHD !

I've been using OnePlus 9 Pro(128GB) for over 5 weeks and have been having issues with phone crashes and screen freezes. The screen freezes randomly while I'm using an app (can be any app like Instagram or Chrome) and sometimes it freezes at the lock screen when I'm trying to unlock it via fingerprint - the fingerprint scanner lights up and freezes. The only way out is to hard reboot the phone. Sometimes the phone reboots itself while I'm using it and (weird enough) sometimes while I'm not even using it. It's frustrating because I got this phone no more than 5 weeks ago.

*PLEASE DONT BUY ONEPLUS PHONES THEY ARE HIGHLY UNRELIABLE* I owned a OnePlus 6 it was really a great phone for almost 2.5 years it dint had any issues or lag, after 2.5 years my phone suddenly went to crash dump mode and it was dead. Sent it to service center and they asked me to replace it's motherboard for the price of Rs-24,056/- after this incident I lost hope on OnePlus phone and it's OS, I feel after paying such a premium amout, phone must at least come for 4 o 5 years and I am not a heavy gamer or I had not rooted my phone to have such a bad experience.

I think OnePlus has lost their edge and now is just another Samsung or Apple wannabe. Even though I would not choose Samsung in normal life. That camera setup makes the OnePlus loose out and I would go for the Samsung between the two because of the real telefoto.

Honestly, I was a OnePlus fanboy til last year! But in the past one year, my OnePlus 6T has given me so many problems which I don't expect from a flagship, even after 2 years of use! My current opinion about OnePlus is bad! I'm going out of options, so Samsung automatically becomes my first choice in the absence of OnePlus!

S21 would have been better if it had snapdragon in India. I purchased 8T, it’s good, but I would have preferred the S20 FE if it had snapdragon 865. Now Samsung suddenly felt need to throw the snapdragon version in the Indian market, but it’s too late for me now!

Also, it will never be as striking as my Note 9; however, a nice case allows me to overlook that sad fact. On the flip side, the charger and responsiveness with this phone are out of this world. I am thoroughly enjoying it two weeks into my ownership
