Screen and size

OnePlus 9 Pro vs OnePlus 9 size

OnePlus 9 Pro: efficient 6.7-inch Quad HD screen

It's difficult to operate the large 6.7-inch screen of the OnePlus 9 Pro with one hand. The advantage of this large size is that you can comfortably watch movies and series. Because the screen has a Quad HD resolution, all the details are razor-sharp. The screen adjusts the refresh rate according to the task you're performing. For example, the screen refreshes 120 times per second for smooth images during games. Are you reading a text or looking at a photo? The screen refreshes only once per second, which extends your battery.

OnePlus 9: less efficient 6.55-inch Full HD screen

The 6.55-inch screen of the OnePlus 9 is a bit smaller, but still very large. This makes it difficult to operate this device with one hand. In addition, the Full HD screen is less sharp. You can watch movies and series in excellent quality, but you see less details than on the OnePlus 9 Pro. This screen can also refresh 120 times per second, so that you see smooth images. The OnePlus 9 doesn't automatically adjust the refresh rate downwards. As a result, the screen requires more of the battery than with the Pro model.


OnePlus 9 Pro vs OnePlus 9 camera comparison

OnePlus 9 Pro: complete camera set, 3x optical zoom

The OnePlus 9 Pro has a complete camera set with a standard lens, a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a monochrome lens. With the 48-megapixel standard camera, you can take sharp and colorful photos during the day and in low light. Thanks to the optical image stabilization, your photos don't look as blurry and are sharper. With the 8-megapixel telephoto lens, you can zoom in up to 3 times without your photos and 8K videos becoming less sharp.

OnePlus 9: no telephoto lens with optical zoom

Because there's no telephoto lens with optical zoom, the camera setup of the OnePlus 9 is a lot less extensive. You can't zoom in without loss of quality. The 48-megapixel standard lens is comparable to that of the Pro model, but the OnePlus 9 doesn't have optical image stabilization. As a result, photos are sometimes blurry faster. The 50-megapixel wide-angle lens is exactly the same, as is the monochrome lens. With that camera, you can take photos in black and white.


Difference OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro battery

OnePlus 9 Pro: both wired and wireless fast charging

The OnePlus 9 Pro is suitable for the most demanding tasks. Thanks to the large RAM, you can switch smoothly between different apps. The 9 Pro is available with 128GB and 256GB storage capacity. The 256GB storage not only gives you space for all your apps and photos, but also for all your downloaded music, movies, and series. Make sure to think about how much storage you need, because the memory can't be expanded with an external memory card.

Storage OnePlus 9 Pro vs OnePlus 9

OnePlus 9: just as powerful and 128GB storage

The OnePlus 9 has just as much power as the OnePlus 9 Pro. The device runs on the same Snapdragon 888 processor. That means you don't have to worry about stuttering, even with demanding apps like Photothop or 3D games. Thanks to the 8GB RAM, you can also quickly switch between different apps. The OnePlus 9 has 128GB of storage. This is enough for all your apps, photos, and videos. This memory isn't expandable.

You can also zoom in up to 3 times without loss of quality, something that's not possible with the OnePlus 9. The batteries are the same size and charge just as quickly wired. The OnePlus 9 Pro fully charges your device wirelessly within an hour. With the OnePlus 9, this takes 2 to 3 times as long.
