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.

    Hey marq don't try to hard to say this phone is good, its just overpriced junk from the company, they dont take seriously on this phone, the build is very bad, look like entry level phone, the camera doesnt have OIS, the screen is average, redmi note 10 pro can give you 120Hz on a budget, come on One Plus, are you really rebranding Oppo now??

    I recently purchased the OnePlus 9 to use as my work device. I have owned the device for a week and I only have one gripe. My one gripe is that the phone is too narrow. Due to this reason, the phone does not feel comfortable to hold. I purchased an OnePlus case for the device, but the Carbon case I chose is narrow as well and does not add anything to the phone really like a bumper case normally does.
    Overall though, I love the phone. If you are going to go Android, Oneplus is the way to go. Oxygen OS by itself for me is the only reason why I chose the OnePlus. I am not a fan of ONEUI, and stock Android is just too bare-bones for me. Oxygen OS adds just enough to stock android, and it adds the features to Android that people actually want. I do use the phone as my main camera for work, and the three-camera options are more than fine, however, I don't really use the B&W option for work. The Ultrawide is just as good as what is on my iPhone 12. Sad part is, I have to find another case :) Great Video

    Great presentation!! It appears Fine for the price. The 9pro is ridiculous on the Price. it should have been 929.00 not worth 1069.00. my personal take I love oneplus phones. But im still gonna wait for 0neplus9t.....Its gone have all the specs and more as the 9pro. for 250 less. thats my take on my research on the last 3 t models that i've owned. so lets wait and see Marques, In October if my Prediction is right. I may be wrong but I doubt IT !!!! I also wanna see how those phones workout. remember to do your research Folks, It's very Important when buying a high ticket Item!! Thanks again for your well Informed Presentation..Mr. Browniee

    Stop letting everyone finance $1K phones, and the prices will immediately reset. Finance up to $250 or $400, then make the customer have to pay the difference. The whole reason prices are going galactic is because of the financing.

Indian variant doesn't have wireless charging and supports only 2 5G bands as compared to around 11-12 bands in US. You should point out one plus for plastic body as there cheaper phones have metal body . this phone is not cheap phone its an flagship and it should be judged like an flagship
