Overview OnePlus 9
Android version and market relevance
The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And OnePlus 9 works on Android 11, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2021. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty OnePlus 9, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.
Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because OnePlus 9 works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. OnePlus 9 has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.
Screen, body and battery
Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. OnePlus 9 received Fluid AMOLED-screen measuring 6.55 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate. 120 Hz is 120 updates per second of each pixel on the screen. This frequency is not very noticeable to the eye, but it gives a feeling of smooth operation of the interface. Especially in games where the picture changes quickly and with smooth animations, players get more pleasure from immersion in the game. Smartphones with a refresh rate of 120 Hz can now be bought only in premium segments, where the price starts at $ 800 and above. If it’s expensive for you, you can look at smartphones with a frequency of 90 Hz or even 60 Hz.
And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of OnePlus 9 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone OnePlus 9 is 8.7 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 4 500 mAh, and this is already the application for success and leadership in tests for the duration of the device from one battery charge.
Main camera and selfie camera
Let′s briefly describe the cameras in OnePlus 9. The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 50 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.
The front camera has one module: 16 MP Wide. This is a very good selfie-camera, which will shoot high-quality photos, so you share them with your friends in social networks and not only. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
Processor and Internal Memory
The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset Snapdragon 888 (5 nm). RAM 8 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 12 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.
Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 GB, but there are still options for 256 GB. You choose which version of the smartphone to buy, so it was comfortable to use it. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.
Price for OnePlus 9: buy or not to buy?
In April 2021 begin sales of a new smartphone OnePlus 9. The manufacturer said the price of $835 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a huge touch screen, a very cool main camera, a very high quality front camera, a very good battery and a cherry on the cake is a powerful processor.
As a result, in 2021 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.
