We're pretty excited here at AC because the newest phones from OnePlus are going to be unveiled to the world later this morning! That's right, the much-anticipated OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, with their updated internals, refined design, and Hasselblad camera partnership, are sure to tempt many a smartphone lover to upgrade their current device and switch to the newest flagship killer.

Yet as excited as we are for the new OnePlus devices, which are sure to be among the best Android phones of 2021, we haven't heard much from our faithful about them on the AC forums:

From REAL OnePlus owners, how is this company and their phones? How are OS and security updates?


I'd like to know too. Why is there almost zero buzz over the 9/9 pro in this forum?


I've had the one plus 6 and 1+7p and I really like this company, security updates were like every 2 or 3 months after a year and OS updates slacked after 1 year compared to Samsung , but I think they get supported 3 years on OS and security. But overall I like their OS and phones no question. Javier P can also chime in


We want to hear from you — Are you going to upgrade to a new OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro? Why, or why not?

  • No. The OnePlus phones were great back in the day, because they were affordable. Now, they're just another expensive flagship in a sea of expensive flagships.
  • I have the OnePlus 8 Pro and still vibing with this phone.
  • I really liked my One+ 7 pro and that all screen design was amazing. But the camera was terrible so I went back to Samsung. That was their one chance to get me to become a One+ fan and they failed. Now I'm happy with my S21 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra. I still like One+ as a company though.
  • I'm allergic to the words "Made in China". So the answer is NO.
  • So, I take it you own no phones?
    Even Samsung phones have many “made in China” parts. Also, your house must be bare….and probably doesn’t exist. Many things are made in China.
  • Do you walk around naked all day? Everything in the USA is made in China...even the trillions in debt...we borrow the money from China...China owns much of the companies and land in the USA. Better rethink your statement.
  • I like one plus and hope they have success with Hasselblad. But I'm very happy with my S21+?
  • Had couple of one plus phones. Always some minor glitches and their cameras were never good. Now with bad software support they are no more a choice.
  • Had a 3T, 6, 7T and now just ordered the 9Pro with free wireless buds.
