The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are as close to perfect as Android phones get. Both phones have earned a Tom's Guide Editor's Choice badge, and either handset can go head-to-head with any other Android flagship. We especially like how these rockstar phones undercut the competition.
Although OnePlus pricing has slowly crept up over the years, OnePlus' newest flagships remain great value phones. OnePlus 9 pricing starts at $729, whereas OnePlus 9 Pro pricing starts at $969. For $100 more, either phone can be fitted with more RAM and storage. Here's a look at what else that OnePlus pricing includes.

In our OnePlus 9 review, we found that the new phone offered much better photo quality than its predecessor, thanks to OnePlus' new partnership with camera maker Hasselblad. While the iPhone 12 and Google Pixel still outperform OnePlus in the photo department, the OnePlus 9 is at least a contender now.
Meanwhile, in our OnePlus 9 Pro review we deemed OnePlus' new handset a serious contender for one of this year's best Android phones. You get better photo quality, a stunning 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED display, and powerful performance. In fact, nothing we threw its way — not even a Call of Duty: Mobile match — could make the phone stutter. Apple's A14 Bionic is still the leader of the pack, but the OnePlus 9 Pro is within striking distance.
