OnePlus 9 Pro shrugs off abuse in durability test

OnePlus 9 Pro shrugs off abuse in durability test

At nearly $1,000, the OnePlus 9 Pro is the most expensive smartphone the company has ever released, a far cry from the days of "flagship killers." It's a pretty good phone, even if it's held back by a mediocre camera and the threat of poor update support.

Clearly, it's doing a lot of things right, but that doesn't mean its products are perfect. Performance, battery life, and software features have always impressed, but photo quality has always been behind the curve, and its update policy falls behind its competitors now, as does the quality of those updates over time.
