In our OnePlus 9 review (opens in a new tab), it wowed us with its fantastic performance. We also loved its bright, crisp 120Hz display and battery life that topped out at over 11 hours in our Laptop Mag battery test. We gave the OnePlus 9 an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and our coveted Editor’s Choice award.
By design, the OnePlus 9 features a glass build and a barely visible OnePlus logo on the back. There’s a volume rocker on the left edge and an iPhone-like ringer/vibrate/silent slider on the right. At 6.3 x 2.9 x 0.32 inches and 6.8 ounces, the OnePlus is on par with the 6.5-inch Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (6.29 x 2.93 x 0.33 inches, 6 .7 ounces) and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max (5.8 x 2.8 x 0.29 inches, 6.7 ounces).
Simply put, if you want to enjoy the top specs without the high price tag, the OnePlus 9 is a budget choice.
