    Hello everyone,

    After months of leaks, rumours, and speculation the OnePlus 9 Series was finally unveiled to the world on March 23 (or 24 if you're in China).

    If you were looking forward to the 9 Series, chances are you already have watched over a dozen videos from your favorite content creators. But in case you haven't, the 9 Series Lab reviewers have also started dropping their reviews of the 9 and 9 Pro. Have a device-specific question? Ask away. You can find all the reviews on the recommended section of the homepage or in @Crystal Z.'s round-up thread here: The Lab - OnePlus 9 Series Review Round-up

    The OnePlus 9 Series stands to compete with the biggest contenders in the industry. The Hasselblad partnership also promises improved photography experiences. Does it live up to the name? Well, I guess we'll have to wait for the Phase 2 Lab reviews to know more.

    (For my global friends who don't understand hindi -
    This was a famous dialouge from a old indian movie, and I have changed it to ridicule a famous fruit brand which decided to skip charger in the box of their products....
    Literal translation -
    -I have got A14 bionic, ceramic shield, xdr display, lidar scanner, what do you have?
    - I've got a CHARGER)







    EDIT - all entries done 😉

    1. All CMFs are gorgeous as always but that Winter Mist is deluxe. Flawless.
    2. Warp Charge just hit another level with 9 Pro. Breathless.
    3. That 9 Pro display is a darling. Love.
    4. Free form lens & 4K@120fps are the new norms. Trendsetters.
    5. As hyped, the colors are true to life. Precision.
    6. Premium Design and Premium OS. Permanent.
    7. A new era begins with OnePlus 9 x Hasselblad. Better things to come. Futuristic.
    8. A little tough on the pocket. Worthy.
    9. The 9 Series is for everyone - Flagship killer to Flagship to Premium Flagship. Feast.

    Great idea @YRJ :)
    here is my entry:):
    1. Still bad OS support,... you can be on the moon now, but you will always continue to get infrequent updates. Although the hardware offers better and more regular update support, this is not supported.
    2. I am in love with Pine Green :hearteyes::hearteyes::hearteyes:
    3. The new wireless charging is so impressive! You don't really need a wired charger. Perhaps a glimpse into the future?
    4. Hasselblad x OnePlus: a wedding on three years: Hopefully no premature divorce - I wish much success for the partnership and an extension to the three years.
    5. The alert slider is probably the only constant and THE trademark par excellence. Hopefully the function can be extended - depending on which apps are used: e.g. quick access to pro-mode profiles in the camera.
    6. No pop-up box - or I missed it....Here OnePlus breaks with tradition - too bad :(
    7. With the color Stellar Black there is again a nostalgia factor
    8. Whether online or offline event: OnePlus ROCKS launch events. But an offline event is still the best :)
    9. Al the best for the OnePlus 9 Series Experts and good luck OnePlus :) I hope this program will be successful :)

    1. I do not like the camera design of the OnePlus 9 pro. I feel 8 pro looked better.
    2. I really liked the wireless fast charge capabilities of 9 pro
    3. Personally, I feel the front camera of 9 pro is not upto the mark.
    4. The price of 9 pro is a disappointment to me because of the offering made by competition (Vivo x60 pro plus)
    5. I am digging the black and white packaging of 9 pro.
    6. The 2mp monochrome sensor is unwanted addition in my opinion.
    7. Tilt shift mode is a welcome addition.
    8. I personally would have preferred the fingerprint sensor placement like the 8 Series.
    9. I liked the black and green variants but not the morning mist variant.

    Here's my entry....
    My first impressions on 1+ 9 series (to be franked)
    1. 9 series are great and good looking devices.
    2. In camera department... cameras are improved as compared to older 1+ devices.
    3. The colour science got enriched due to Hasselblad tunning....the colours on the final image are awesome...it's more natural...so the Hasselblad promise is kept upto it's words.
    4. That 2MP monochrome is almost of no use ...for me it's waste
    5. Display 2.0 is freaking awesome..and with the 120 hz it's just got more smooth...10/10🔥
    6. The processors on the devices are very powerful... sound quality is as always great #oneplusthings
    7. In video recording...8k-30 fps, 4k-120fps..is fantastic.....plus point stability is also great 🔥so 10/10 in terms of video
    8. The OnePlus 9R is just a small update version of OnePlus 8t..but as shown in the launch about its haptic feedback and game processing...I personally liked it and it's affordable so if I wanna buy I will go for OnePlus 9R instead of the OnePlus 9 as it offers similar performance which we can get on the OnePlus 9 [not the Pro]
    9. The whole 9 series are great ....but I think some things like a dedicated macro lens is missing..ip rating is limited to only 9 pro other to should also have that!!.....OnePlus 9 should also have got 50watts wireless charging support as it's successor....well in all the devices are great offers great features... I personally liked them...but was little bit disappointed by the price.

    [Note: This are my personal views ] said:

    BTW I'm in love with the OnePlus Watch Cobalt edition 😁!
    100/100 for the WATCH in my view 🔥
    Thanks @YRJ for the contest!!

    I'll try to put my views in cricketing terms😃
    • OnePlus has hit a six to get maximum runs for wide angle camera
    • Performance of OnePlus 9 series is like Jadeja's lightning fast throw
    • Colors on the display is like ABD's wide range of shots
    • Software is like DRS, trying to get as accurate and perfect as possible
    • Battery Life is like MS Dhoni, dependable and will last as far as possible
    • Waterproofing is like those covers on the pitch, promise to keep the pitch dry but no guarantee (warranty for phone) if water seeps through
    • Wireless charging is as energetic and fast as Kohli
    • Design and Colors are like the debutants who might flourish or fail
    • But, I feel OnePlus has bowled itself when it comes to pricing

    1) The feel in the hand, not enough could I recommend!
    No detail to small. A OnePlus phone to rule them all.

    2) The hype was big. But up to it, did it live?
    The LAB was back to tell the tale. In terms of camera it is a hot debate if it was a fail.

    3) Software is as smooth as ever.
    Just not as smooth as Display 2.0, which going back from I will never.

    4) From heat they say it will never break.
    Although according to some accounts it seems I could use it next time I make pancakes.

    5) During the launch there was so much excitement in the air.
    But nothing was cooler in the 9 series launch then Vita Hsu's hair.


    6) The speed of warp charge 65t is mind-blowing fast.
    it's done charging between my first snooze till my 6th which hopefully is my last.

    7) A hasselblad partnership that causes less then 1 percent distortion is quite an achievement.
    For the camera focused this will definitely be a great appeasement.

    8) Wireless charging brought to new standards.
    To the OnePlus community the corporation yet again panders.

    9) And most importantly
