    complaining about color of the phone is ridiculous. the silver is is great and the whole its not one plus looking phone with the camera bump is dumb also. but the S21 Brick and huge square camera bump is fantastic? the oneplus 9 pro design is better than all the phones out there now.

    photos on 9 pro look pail and dead to me compared to the s21 and iPhone.. that's sad, i prefer vibrant colours we used to have on 7pro and 8 pro

    How does the S21 struggle with your skintone? You actually look the same in those as in your video. The iPhone makes you look yellow/orange

    I am very happy with my Oneplus 8 Pro, so I have no reason to even consider another phone for 3 or 4 years. Hopefully, Oneplus will go back in delivering great value in their lineup.

    Hasselblad definitely isn't a spotless company. Hasselblad stellar was found to be a rebranded sony camera and sold at a ridiculous markup. So if they can sully their own brand for a quick buck. Why wouldn't they tie up with a phone maker to do the same?

    I got the 7 Pro andwas going to wait until the 10 Pro, but my 7 Pro has been glitching/dying. Hopefully this pans out and there's more realistic photos with the 9 Pro and I can keep it until the 14 or 15 comes out.

    Great review as always. No more onplus for me after owning the 7 Pro ; I really don't get it what makes the software special, it has hardly any features and is way too sparse. Just give me everything and the kitchen sink and ill decide what to use and what to switch off. Plus the software support lately is abysmal, and strangely enough that was their selling point before. Much prefer a Xiaomi, better everything for less.

    I stopped believing in software fixes when the OnePlus 3 could not fix its camera problems. Do your viewers a favor and stop mentioning it as a possible fix for smartphone issues. Why anyone would expect OnePlus to make a good camera, marketing campaign or otherwise, is beyond me. People are gullible.

    Having a choise between the 9 pro and s21+. Biggest difference for me is between the camera, specs and stuff I can do with both. But having a tough time deciding between camera, 9 pro has more options but when looking at reviews. I'm kinda half and half. Would this be something that will be improved with software update is a big question that comes to mind

    From a photographer's point of view, the neutral output color of the OP9 pro is really useful for post-producing. By having a subtle and realistic tone in the colors, the photo can be managed in a really good and handy way. Of course, this is a plus only for user like me whose are hobby photographer, for a normal user this might not be the best solution.

    The comments are mostly negative. I never had a oneplus phone, but in my opinion this is the kind of color science I like, a bit flat and realistic look. When Dave gave the photo comparison, I honestly prefer OP9 looks by far compared to samsung and apple, pixel is the most aggressive one on HDR.

    In India, the OP9Pro is for Rs. 65,000 (USD 880 approx.) whereas, the competition, the S21 Ultra and the iPhone 12 Pro Max are upwards of 1500 USD (in India). The OP 9 Pro, pricing wise in India, competes with the S21 (regular) and the iPhone 12 Mini. So coming short by a few points to the S21 Ultra and the iPhone 12 Pro Max but being HALF the price, is crazy. It is the best OnePlus at the price of the lower range Samsung or Apple.

    the problem is they really just have run out of things to do with a metal and glass slab. Innovation really stopped at the s10+ . Why would you pay for what's essentially the same phone all over again. The only thing that is going to make me upgrade for the next few years is a decent foldable.
