OnePlus was a really exciting brand in the beginning. They packed in all the latest and greatest specs in their earlier phones, just like the other flagships. OnePlus 9 pro full review in Bangladesh It price unofficially 8GB+256GB- ৳ 74,499, 12GB+256GB- ৳ 85,499. OnePlus 9 Pro is their most expensive smartphone to date. That being said, it is still priced a bit lower than the other flagships, at least here in Bangladesh, but it is no longer the best value for money option as OnePlus smartphones once were.
OnePlus 9 pro full review in Bangladesh
Now the design of this phone is not new or revolutionary. With a glass sandwich design and curved display at the front, It seems like a mash-up of the OnePlus 8 Pro and the 8T, with the camera module pushed onto one side. But it still looks nice and premium especially this Stellar Black color. That brings me to a very important point. No one and I means No one prefers to have a glossy glass back like on the Morning Mist color of the 9 Pro, especially when you have 2 amazing finishes on the Stellar Black and Pine Green color. The glossy back shows fingerprints and scratches very easily, and it also makes the phone very slippery.
Everyone will appreciate the design even more. Like all other OnePlus devices, 9 Pro is a very well build phone. The metal frame provided it a lot of rigidity, and the metal buttons are tactile and feel very robust. This phone also gets IP68 water and dust resistance rating, so you no longer have to worry, if the phone takes a quick shower or if you accidentally drop it in the swimming pool or spill some water over it.
Other than that, it’s a wonderful display. Very easily one of the best ones out there. With 1300 nits of peak brightness It can get very bright, and the colors look amazing. When set to QHD+ it looks extremely crisp. It’s an LTPO display, so in the smart 120Hz mode, the refresh rate can drop down when the screen is showing something less demanding, and it can race up to 120Hz for more demanding stuff. While this is great but every now and then when the refresh rate goes from low to high, I see a couple of dropped frames.
While using the fingerprint sensor, you get the first tase of the amazingly strong haptic motor inside this phone. It is not very often that you get a good vibration motor on an android phone. You get very nice haptic feedback throughout the user interface. For example, if you are increasing the volume or brightness, vibrations go from light to strong with the slider, and this is a very nice touch.
It is powered by the latest and greatest Snapdragon 888 processor with Adreno 660 GPU. You can choose between 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1 2-lane storage. This phone does get 5G support, but right now it only has 2 5G bands, but OnePlus says they will be adding support for more bands with future software updates. With all of this, you can expect flawless performance from this OnePlus 9 Pro.
It can fly through anything that you through at it. Everyday social apps, streaming content, playing games, do anything and you won’t be disappointed. The overall software experience is very good on this phone. OnePlus’s Oxygen OS is one of my favorite Android Skins. I love the features and customization options it gives you. It is minimal and functional at the same time. And I love that OnePlus offers software support for a long time. They have however slowed down or delayed the Android 11 update on some of the older phones like the OnePlus 7T.
The wide camera is actually showing better-looking colors than the primary camera. The 16-megapixel selfie camera does an adequate job if the lighting is not too harsh. Adequate is the right word to describe it. These selfies have enough details to not make these images look bad, but there are much better selfie cameras on phones prices lower than this. If there is one area that the camera has seen the biggest improvement in, it is while shooting videos.
Not just with the video resolution and frame rate options, but quality-wise as well. I really imperative videos that the OnePlus 9 pro can shoot. The primary camera gets a 48 megapixel Sony IMX789 sensor with an F/1.8 aperture and 23mm focal length. This camera gets a 7 element lens and Optical Image Stabilisation. Next up there’s a 50 megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor with F/2.2 aperture and 14mm lens. Yes, the wide lens on this phone gets a higher resolution sensor than the primary camera, which is really interesting.
This wide camera gets focusing capabilities, so it also acts as a macro camera. Then there’s an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with F/2.4 aperture and 3.3x optical magnification. This telephoto camera also gets optical image stabilization. And finally, for some weird reason, there’s a 2-megapixel monochrome camera. Now the primary and wide cameras at the back, both are capable of shooting 8K 30fps and 4K 60fps videos.
This phone usage out of the 4500mAh battery. We do get the 65-watt warp charger In the box, which fully charges the phone in under half an hour.. It also supports 50-watt wireless charging with the OnePlus wireless charger, which is even faster than wired charging on most phones. All that being said, with the latest efficient processor and a 4500 mAh battery, we should have got better battery life out of this phone. We should not have to dial back on some of the key features like QHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, just to squeeze out a day’s worth of battery on the OnePlus 9 Pro.
