    Hi

    Since its black friday I'm looking to buy a new oneplus phone my old one is a OP3
    So i would like to use the new one also for 5-6 years muhahahhaha....

    and I'm not sure which one has batter long therm 3rd party community support, well has or rather will have...
    I noticed that there is no lineage OS for the 9 only for 9 pro

    The only things I don't like about the pro is this curved screen, so how bad is it?

    And input would be greatly appreciated.

    I have both the 9 and 9 Pro, I like the flat screen, but I like having OIS since I take a lot of photos, sometimes with extended shutterspeeds. If you don't want a telephoto lens, OIS and a slightly higher resolution display, I'd say go for the 9 honestly.

    Here is the Spec sheet for both 9 & 9 Pro. It's filtered to show the differences.

    I suppose it depends on many factors, most of which would be personal to your circumstances. Prices, aesthetics, hardware specs, curved screen or not, Phone size and features etc.

    And here is a Guide comparing the 2 phones by Android Authority.

    So... What did you decide? Pixel 6 Pro? 😂

    Have to admit, having a bit of buyer's remorse, got mine on OP store sale. That 5 year upgrade on the Pixel is looking nice.

    Have you tried removing battery optimization on your email client? OP phones are aggressive in killing background apps and may account for the missed notification.

    Have read and tried more fixed than would sink a battle ship. Works for a couple of hours then stops. But thanks for the advice. Had 4 op phones but this is the last one.

    Well, with such buggy update, I wouldn't recommend getting either phone, since you plan to keep the phone for 5 years..., they'll release the 10 version and soon forget about older version and be left with buggy OS..

    Why couldn't OP use Oxygen OS as the base of the combined OS, instead of Color OS?
