OnePlus 9 Pro Review

It is a premium smartphone with amazing looks and Aluminum body that provides sturdiness and a unique look. Additionally, the 5G connectivity with dual SIM capacity means that you are always connected and you can use the 5G speed either from the Wi-Fi or by the network provider.

Secondly, the Quad camera setup in the front with LED flash lets you shoot 4K/8K videos with complete clarity but the selfie is just 16MP which could be better although it also has auto HDR function but as compared to the price it could have been better.

Qualcomm Display

Furthermore, the 128GB/256GB internal memory is enough to save lots of data but when you record 8K videos and HD photos then you may feel the need to have a micro SD card slot. However, the 8GB/12GB RAM variants provide a hiccup free multi-tasking and also suitable for those who like to play games like PUBG and other heavy games.


  1. There are some online reviews about this mobile in which the users have complaint about the heating issue in the mobile. The overheating issue was reported by some users especially when its camera function was used and the One Plus Company immediately noticed this problem reported online and said that they will soon fix the issue in the coming weeks. In Fact it has rolled out a small update that is related to the camera App and standby power consumption.
  2. There were some complaints about the power draining issue which the company has claimed to be fixed in this update. So, fast battery draining is another issue that you might get in this mobile. In India, the OnePlus Company has rolled out an update that you can download in case you have already bought this 5G mobile.
  3. Let us tell you that the heating issue is related to more software as compared to any hardware issue because it has a very thick copper foil along with a larger heat sink as compared to its prior models.

Anyways if we do not think about the heating issue and battery draining problem which is expected to be corrected in the coming weeks and see its other specs like wireless charging, fast charging and Gorilla glass protection with IP68 rating to save it from dust and water then this mobile can be given a chance.

So, if you are looking to upgrade your existing 4G mobile then it is a very good option, but we would suggest you to wait for the right time until the heating and fast battery draining issue is sorted by the company.
