Five best things about owning a OnePlus 9 Pro

Five best things about owning a OnePlus 9 Pro

In smartphone years, OnePlus has just started coming of age, spreading its wings to enter new verticals and price segments. The latest, top-of-the-line OnePlus 9 Pro is the star of the company's lineup, and rightly so. The newest Pro has taken the biggest leap a OnePlus phone has taken in years to improve camera quality.

OnePlus to abandon its own file sharing solution now that Nearby Share is here

OnePlus to abandon its own file sharing solution now that Nearby Share is here

Not long ago, Google lacked an alternative to Apple's wireless peer-to-peer file transfer system, AirDrop — another factor along with iMessage that keeps users within Apple's walled garden. This led smartphone companies to come up with their own file sharing solutions, such as OnePlus with its own File Dash. Now that Google has added Nearby Share to Android, OnePlus is letting go of its home-grown alternative.

Should you buy a OnePlus 9, or the OnePlus 8T? It's less obvious than you think

Should you buy a OnePlus 9, or the OnePlus 8T? It's less obvious than you think

Following weeks of hype, OnePlus finally debuted its OnePlus 9 series last month. If you're not looking to splurge almost a grand on the OnePlus 9 Pro (probably a good call), you might have your sights set on its cheaper sibling, the OnePlus 9. 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.

OnePlus 9R vs OnePlus 8T: Is this even a choice?

OnePlus 9R vs OnePlus 8T: Is this even a choice?

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.

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?
