    Eggjactly, it never was. But I'd prefer this over sugarcoated mess that other people are writing. But still the LAB isn't this.

    We can continue this in woho if you want ;)

    It’s okay:)
    I got your points/message:) you got mine (hopefully).
    Conclusion: OnePlus is no longer what it once was ;)

    Sorry you feel that way. But what you're suggesting is that I should stop reviewing phones completely. I can't review a phone I have not tested - at least not honestly. If I stick to the 9 Pro, I can't review anything else.

    As I have said, I am grateful to have been chosen as a part of The Lab program - I wouldn't have gotten the phone otherwise. I'm too small of a YouTuber for OnePlus, Samsung, Apple, or any other phone manufacturer to take notice and send any phones my way. I have paid out of pocket for all the phones I have reviewed thus far, and I barely make enough money after that to support myself.

    If I had not gotten this phone, it's true that some other singular person could have received and loved the phone. But I would much rather help the thousands or sometimes hundreds of thousands of people that watch my videos and can then make an informed decision on whether or not they want to spend their hard earned money on the OnePlus 9 Pro.

    Hi Team,

    Not so excited phone I still love my one plus 7 pro curve display...I didn't see much changes atleast they need to work on more curve like vivo Nex 3 and battery still 4500 come on guys when you guys increase the battery size... compiteters providing 5000 some are 6000 Mah to lost for 7 hours display on time...

    awful 9 series....to be continued

    Sorry - you did a perfect job. Your review is really, really great.
    What I meant - and this is the fault of OnePlus - is, that the intention and purpose of the LAB is and was a different one,...
    not shipping the devices to YouTubers and influencers,..
    To community users, who review the device and use it after the review...

    Didn't mean to insult you, attack you, or belittle your work.
    It's nothing against you - really.

    It's not your fault. You did a great job, I told you in my comment. But the point here is that The Lab should be for ordinary users ... That's the question ... You just mentioned that so many more people will be able to see your review, and for me, I get the idea that OnePlus also knew that, and for that reason it chose you and not an ordinary user. If so, and I want to believe it is not, it is completely against the spirit of The Lab. At least for me, but I am not one of the oldest users of the forum.

    Nice review Mark, thanks a lot for your time!

    I would be interested in a full camera comparison against OnePlus 8 Pro if you like, please. I am not convinced that this Hasselblad partnership offers something extraordinary comparing to the OnePlus 8 Pro camera which is quite powerful.

    Cheers mate!

    No information in OnePlus store regarding tempered glass
