OnePlus 9 Pro long-term review

GSMArena Team, 1 November 2021.


It's been seven months now since OnePlus launched its flagship smartphone for the year 2021. The OnePlus 9 Pro was announced to much fanfare - as is usually the case for OnePlus phones, the occasion this year was that OnePlus had apparently finally fixed its cameras. And it did that with the help of none other than Hasselblad, the first company to put a camera on the moon.

OnePlus 9 Pro long-term review

Seems like quite the recipe for success, doesn't it? After all, the camera was the one thing OnePlus phones were often most criticized for. So then why didn't the phone blow us away when we first reviewed it back in March? Well, turns out, OnePlus did seem to have oversold everyone on the camera's capabilities. And there also seemed some doubts regarding whether Hasselblad did anything more than put its name on the back of the phone.

Seven months is a decent amount of time, however. Over this time, we kept using the phone to see if maybe things could change, whether the OnePlus 9 Pro had finally become the phone that OnePlus had promised back in March. And should someone consider purchasing it in late 2021?

We now have the answers.
