The OnePlus 9R is now on sale, but is it worth buying over the OnePlus 8T?

OnePlus’s raison d'être has changed. It’s not committed to making flagship killers anymore — it’s unapologetically shipping $1,000 phones. But the company doesn’t want to put all its eggs in one basket so it's hedged this change in direction by introducing the Nord series and now, the OnePlus 9R that goes on sale today.

The phone is exclusive to the Indian market at the moment and costs 20% less than the OnePlus 9. This puts it directly in competition with another member of its own family, the OnePlus 8T, which costs about the same. So, if you’re setting out to buy a non-flagship OnePlus phone, which one should you go for?

Surprisingly, it's priced lower than its predecessor at launch (at least in the US) and it arguably comes without any significant sacrifices. However, the OnePlus 8T has received a timely price cut and is now available for just $599 on the OnePlus store — $130 lower than the OnePlus 9.

This raises the important question of whether it's really worth spending more money on the newer flagship.

How to enable photo timestamps on your OnePlus phone

Smartphone companies seem to think that watermarks on photos are an ingenious way to promote their products — some even have them turned on by default. Most people will disable this right away, but there are more useful possibilities in this area. OnePlus is testing the option to add a 'Time Watermark,' or timestamp, as we know them.
