OnePlus 9 Pro evaluation: smooth system, powerful performance, and outstanding images

The OnePlus 9 series has conducted in-depth cooperation with the legendary imaging brand Hasselblad, creating a precedent for the new imaging system of OnePlus mobile phones. In addition, the OnePlus 9 Pro has also undergone a special upgrade. The screen uses adaptive LTPO screen technology, which significantly improves the battery life of the phone. However, what about the real experience? Let’s take a look together.

The moment the OnePlus 9 Pro is held in my hand, the first feeling is that the hand feels really good and smooth. The 8.7mm thickness of the fuselage will not feel too thick in the hand; the weight of the whole machine is about 197g, and it does not have a strong sense of weight. The curved surface of the screen becomes slightly curved, and with the soul of a straight screen, the back cover adopts the industry’s first double-layer AG process to reduce light reflection, which reduces the trouble of fingerprint marks on the mobile phone. Judging from the overall appearance, the OnePlus 9Pro is pretty good in all aspects.


In terms of the screen, the OnePlus 9 Pro is the first batch of mobile phones that use flexible AMOLED 120Hz E4 luminescent material screens and support LTPO screen technology. Utilizing the LTPO feature, the OnePlus 9 Pro has achieved a revolutionary breakthrough: 1Hz-120Hz adaptive refresh rate adjustment. The mobile phone can automatically select the most suitable refresh rate between 1Hz-120Hz according to the content on the current screen. For example, the screen refresh rate is reduced to 1Hz under a static picture, and the smoothest 120Hz is quickly restored when the screen is swiped. It can also be used when watching videos. It will be matched to the frame rate of the video content itself, thereby reducing the screen power consumption by up to 50% while ensuring a smooth experience at 120Hz. Sometimes the mobile phone does not need to use a high frame rate. The normal frame rate can save power. The screen can be adjusted according to different scenes. That is to say, the OnePlus 9Pro screen refresh rate continuously maintains high frame battery life and has higher practicability.

In terms of system, the OnePlus 9 series fully switched to ColorOS for OnePlus, bringing a smooth and light performance, and also allowing the system to have higher stability and richer functions and services to meet the requirements of more public users.

OnePlus 9 Pro uses the latest Qualcomm 5nm process Snapdragon 888 flagship processor and is equipped with 8GB LPDDR5 four-channel large memory, and UFS 3.1 transmission protocol dual-channel 256GB flash memory, which can enable multiple software and games to run in the background. The mobile phone system does not have the problem of excessive memory usage and lagging. The game experience is simply great. The mobile phone still maintains the same silky smooth as no software is running, and the performance is different. The software switching also brings smooth and smooth operation.


It is worth mentioning that this time the OnePlus 9 Pro is equipped with a powerful Hasselblad mobile phone imaging system with four rear cameras: a 48-megapixel IMX789 main camera (supports OIS, 4K120 frame shooting), and a 50-megapixel IMX766 ultra-wide-angle camera ( Support 8K30 frame shooting), 8 million pixel telephoto lens (support OIS, 3.3x zoom), 2 million pixel lens (black and white shooting). IMX766 in use in addition to having the function of shooting ultra-wide angle, but also taking into account the super macro function, which is why there is no separate macro lens in the camera combination. When you click on the small flower in the upper-middle during shooting, the super macro function can be activated, or the camera will automatically recognize the super macro scene when it is close to the subject, so the imaging will get more details and the colors will be more delicate.


Finally, there is the battery life of the OnePlus 9 Pro. It has a 4500mAh large-capacity basic battery and a 65W super wired flash charge. If you like to watch movies and play games after watching TV series and the battery is in a hurry, just charge it up for a while and it will immediately resurrect you.

Through the in-depth experience of the OnePlus 9 Pro mobile phone, it can be said that from the appearance of the micro-curved screen design to the more functions inside the system, users have been given great personalized and considerate options. I have to say that the experience of the OnePlus 9 Pro is unexpectedly good, and friends with the right budget can really consider buying it.
