Upgraded from my perfectly fine OnePlus 6T (purchased in November 2018), just because the deal on OnePlus 9 Pro was really good. But I'm now really happy with the overall performance of the 9 Pro.

I bought the 12 GB/256 GB Stellar Black version through my carrier (in Belgium). It's not a carrier locked phone, fully unlocked. The price was € 999, but with € 349 one time payment, and rest in 24 monthly installments (with usage included).
But the pre-order offer between 23 March and 31 March had a € 240 cash-back from OnePlus, and the wireless charger included. So I pre-ordered it. Got the phone on 2nd April.
Also, my employer reimburses my monthly mobile+Internet bill, so I don't have to worry about the monthly installments as well.
If I break the contract with the carrier, I have to pay the remaining costs, that's just it.

    Hello there, I came from OP8 Pro international version which I still have, I've got me OP9 Pro Chinese version (LE2120) and I'm already pleased with this phone, took some underwater pictures, slow mo video, the camera itself is better than OP8 pro, 5G works really well in my area, it feels that it has better 5G connectivity, now that's my personal opinion based on what's important to me, camera and signal, I can't tell you anything as far as performance for gaming because I'm not a gamer. Overall I'm really happy with my upgrade.

    Bought global LE2125 direct from oneplus.com. It replaced my still very functional Samsung Note 3 that's been my only device for the last 7.5 years. The main reason I finally upgraded this year was SD888 has 5g modem built in, not side modem chip. Went with oneplus since in the U.S. it's almost the only option for a phone you can unlock the bootloader and have a decent chance of a dev/mod/theme community. Also was forced to relocate due to one of the stupid hurricanes destroying my home last year and my Note 3 didn't get very good signal due to limited antennae not utilizing all possible spectrum. Loving my 9 pro!

    Note 3? God I hope you were running a modern version of Android for security reasons.
    Anyway, I came from a Note 9 after it was crushed and would have cost more to repair than a new Note 9. Got it through TMobile USA.

    I switched to OP9 Pro from a 7 Pro because after screen replacement the finger print reader did not work properly.
    However I am partly regretting this switch already because the 9 Pro feels slower than the 7 Pro, mostly due to its heavy and slow vertical scrolling which does not outweigh the small performance boost and 120 Hz in everyday use.

    I got mine yesterday and today I've been having lots of fun with it.
    My Razer Phone 2 battery was dying it was on its last leg, it kept shutting down out of the blue, so I was forced to switch to a new phone.
    Did a google search on Saturday for best phone in 2021 and 1+9 Pro topped the charts across board.
    Did another search for accessories and found everything I needed in Amazon.
    Ordered both the same day and the case + screen protector arrived on Sunday.

    Last night I spend several hours transfering stuff from my old Razer Phone 2 to 1+9 Pro and wow it was easy.
    It was the most effortless transfer ever, but the size took hours over WiFi
    Aprox 40 GB of data.
    Then another 2 ~ 3 hours with Titanium Backup to restore all Data, and wow that was sweet.
    I was able to use the phone by the time I woke up this morning with just minor inconvenience like typing the password again for some Apps.

    I was surprised most of my old phones Google settings, including Phone specific settings was able to get transferred as well.

    Now the only problem I have after rooting is NO Netflix, it won't let me install Netflix, it won't let me sideload it.

    Still trying to figure out how to get Netflix working in 1+9 Pro rooted.

    The only negative thing about this phone, are the speakers... not strong enough, they sound nice, but no where near loud and clear enough as my old Razer Phone 2

    Can't get that Movie Theather feel when watching or listening to music with the 1+9 Pro.

    If so what was your reasoning and did you go direct or through a carrier deal? If you did upgrade what phone did you have before?

    Yep, bought outright. Here in the UK Three were offering both the headphones and wireless charger as pre-order incentives. Previous phone was the Pixel 5.

    Within a week the OP9 Pro screen was defective and causing flashing (seems common issue on the forums) so Three offered to send a replacement. Courier also left the old one behind leaving me with 2 phones lol

    Like other users, i buy used, but like new. I wait for the price to drop. I saw one less than 750 $, but already taken.
    I ordered the 50w wireless charger from China (56.99 $). For me is a must.
    The 30w for OnePlus 8 Pro is Awesome, so 50w should be even better.
    I already got the 65w wall charger and cables type-C to type-C.

      I had mine pre-ordered, so i got it day 1, LE2125 global.
      I've had no heat issues, definitely not a professional quality camera but its nice, finally on par with samsung, IMO.
      I'm now running 11.2.5.5AA rooted with Omega kernel, very stable.

      I bought directly though OnePlus, main reason for purchase is a quality flagship phone thats not locked down as much as samsung or apple for example.

      I did. I went to bestbuy. used my bestbuy card to buy the phone outright though I will be able to make 24 payments at 0 percent over 2 years. I am happy i came back to Android.. I hate Google, I love Linux. But i had to get out of the closed sandbox of IOS. IOS is so boring and its glad to be back to android

      I have the silver 9 Pro unlocked. Came from a S21 Ultra. Haven't owned a OnePlus since OnePlus 6. Usually switch between Pixels, iPhones & Galaxy. Just sold my iPhone 12 Pro Max yesterday because I had it sitting on my shelve because I really enjoy this phone. I personally like everything about it. It's quite a shame that all these YouTubers are talking smack about it when yes OnePlus had a rough start but after the updates it definitely has catched up to other flagships. I even went ahead & got my hands on the watch. Honestly though.... Stay away from the watch. They should just have gone with wear os. 🤦‍♂️ One thing I really wish they did is offer a 512GB model. But for now I'll be more then happy with the 256GB. Really happy I didn't listen to all those YouTubers & instead went with my gut decision.

      Alter running Omega on 8 pro, I decided to follow devs lead and purchase the 9 pro. This was the deciding factor that persuaded me to go with the upgrade. While admittinly, the 8 pro is a very nice phone and I enjoyed it since launch, the nine pro is equally beautiful to me and has been a beauty and I feel very blessed having the opportunity to own both these devices. Thank you

      I agree about all the bad hype. I think people were just disappointed that it cost more than previous OnePlus phones. But it's still reasonable for a flagship, which this device certainly is.

      I upgraded from a OnePlus 7 Pro, and I only have 2 minor complaints: 1) it runs a little warm - solved by flashing Omega kernel, although OP will probably improve it eventually, and 2) I miss the pop-up front camera on the 7 Pro - I'm not a fan of the cutout, but pretty much every device has one.

      Overall, I'm really happy with it. My list of complaints is much longer with Samsung, which was my 2nd choice.
      Yeah, bad hype everywhere. The oneplus 8 pro was loved by everyone but for 60 dollars more this one can't compete even though it's better in every way, lol.

      My favorite improvement is battery life and the charging. It impresses me Everytime I charge the phone. Like, whoa...

      My initial complaints were about the camera and the fuzz. After watching the video shared in the forums I absolutely love it. I see people grumble about better battery life.... I get decent battery life and who cares, this phone charges stupid fast. I'm glad to be back on OnePlus. This phone is awesome
