WHY THERE IS A PRICE HIKE COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS SERIES?
Well, 3 major reasons are accounting for the hike in the price of the OnePlus 9 series. On the other hand, OnePlus has recently launched a 3-year partnership with Hasselblad for camera development.
The new multilayered design of this series is itself a reason. This design not only gives these phones a slightly different look but also helps in faster cooling.
Another major reason would be the Sony inbuilt sensors.
BUGS In OnePlus 9 Series
There are some bugs which would hit the performance of these variants.
Shutter lag– While taking a picture if the camera is shaken the image gets disturbed. This bug could be fixed through a software update.
Color accuracy– There is no consistency in the colors of image. But there is surely a hope for improvement through software update.
WHICH ONE TO BUY?
OnePlus has surely given us options in buying the 9 series but which one to buy stands a major question. Well, let’s look at some details to clear our mind of this confusion.
The 9 pro model is already available in markets which comes with more supported 5G bands compared to the 9 and 9r variants which have only two 5G bands support. Although the other two variants are to be made available from 14th of April 2021. Also there is no support of wireless charging for the INDIAN models. And there is seen no OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) for OnePlus 9 variant which certainly is shocking while the other two variants come up with OIS.
With all the specifications compared along with the price of the variants, the 9 pro model surely stands first but its high price would make people think hard before buying. Although the 9 and 9r models are worth their prices.
