The "1-Minute" Review
As the name suggests, the OnePlus 9 Pro offers a little bit of extra compared to the standard OnePlus 9 for those who want the whole package. But those additional features come with extra costs too. Are they worth it?
What’s The Same
- Hole-punch camera
- Rectangular camera housing
- Snapdragon 888
- 8 or 12GB of RAM
- 128 or 256GB storage
- 4,500mAh battery
- Hasselblad partnership
- The One Plus 9 Pro has a curved display
- Larger 6.7-inch screen with QuadHD+
- Quad camera
- Waterproof rating
- Variable refresh rate
The One Plus 9 Pro might not seem significantly different from the One Plus 9, but the few differences there are might enough to tip the scales for some.
The One Plus 9 Pro offers faster wireless charging for power users and gamers. An actual waterproof rating also provides improved peace of mind. Finally, the quad-camera gives a few extra features to the photography experience, but the cameras on the One Plus 9 aren’t bad either.
When it comes to raw performance, the two phones perform nearly identically. So if that’s your biggest concern, the more affordable One Plus 9 might be a better choice.
Pocket Lint says, “The OnePlus 9 Pro offers a larger, curved display, variable refresh rate, more capable camera, metal frame and waterproofing over the regular OnePlus 9. It also has faster wireless charging support, but you pay quite a bit extra for those features compared to the regular OnePlus 9.”
Tech Radar states, “However, for those looking to spend less, the OnePlus 9 still gives you top-notch performance and a solid camera. Indeed, the differences only become readily apparent when you use these two phones side by side, which most people simply won’t be in a position to do.”
