    Excellent review and great images! :)
    Just a couple of questions. Isn't the Fluid AMOLED 2.0 display and the 12-bit RAW support available only on the 9 Pro? As far as I know, the "2.0” is used for LTPO, while the 9 has an LTPS display. And the IMX 689 doesn't support 12-bit RAW, unlike the IMX789 on the 9 Pro.
    Your camera comparison was excellent, and I really liked the fact the you called out OnePlus for hiding the monochrome "filter".
    Kudos! :)

    No optical image stabilization for such a flagship price. No wireless charging on indian variant. Just 2 5g bands. Plastic build.
    What's so great about this phone. Better to buy iPhone 11 or Pixel 4a than this

    I'll send you a DM about the notification settings because I´ve been through the menu multiple times but can't find it.
    About the monochrome. Maybe that's possible with the 9 Pro but with the 9 I can only change the form of the custom modes, as in which order they appear in, but I cannot change or add the actual monochrome mode. When you click on add modes, nothing happens so either it's not possible yet on the 9 or not at all.

    Did I forget to mention it? No because I didn't mean to. The frame looks amazing to me, plastic or not and I've shown what the camera can do. I could add no OIS but I'm more of a 'show and talk about what the phone can do' person than, 'here are the specs, enjoy' type of person. So in the video you see it does pretty good without OIS.

    Thank you so much! You're right about the 2.0, I looked it up in our official OnePlus information package. I will delete that from the post. The rest is all accurate, both the fluid amoled and the 12-bit RAW support. This last one is possible in the camera Pro mode. Thanks again for your questions and feedback! Let's hope they add a monochrome option!

    Think as a general customers, You are paying 750$ for a phone and not getting these simplest features. Come-on even Nord has got OIS, 6/6T got OIS as well as metal and glass body which is way premium than plastic frame. Don't be so biased towards Oneplus.. For me Oneplus 9 doesn't justify its price and there are thousands of customers who thinks just like me.

    Nope, I did not mention it because it doesn't look plastic at all, I knew it was, but I just had other things I wanted to mention. And the alert slider feels pretty sturdy so no problem there.

    Well there is a 'super stable' function in the camera but I shot everything with that setting off so I guess there's your answer.
