The best value-for-money flagship smartphone 2021

Got this phone for £800, about £200 cheaper than any other phone in its class. Despite that, it comes with everything you'd expect from a flagship phone: top-grade hardware, great ergonomics and a capacious battery. Snapdragon 888 delivers impressive performance in any application without overheating too much. The QHD 120Hz 525 PPI Fluid2 AMOLED display provides stunning visual clarity, sharpness and vivid colours. The refresh rate can get as low as 1Hz, which helps a lot with battery economy for people wanting an always-on display. It's actually one of the best, if not the best, display on the market. Can't say much about the camera, as it's the least important feature for me and because I don't have any expertise in this field. But it does take photos, and they look decentish enough as far as I can tell. The phone comes with a 65W charger and goes from 0 to full battery in under 30 minutes. The battery itself performs well and, under normal circumstances, lasts me 2 days (listening to music, regular browsing, steam/discord chatting, short game sessions). But it does run out much quicker in games. If you're a bit tight on budget or are not interested in all the bells and whistles that other pricier counterparts offer, like a second rear display, 999x camera zoom, IR blasters, stylus support etc, consider buying this phone!

Pros

  • Powerful and smooth
  • Comfortable to grip and hold
  • Very fast charging
  • Great price
  • Exceptionally good display
  • Decent battery life

Cons

  • Volume buttons are positioned rather oddly
  • On-screen buttons instead of physical ones
  • Just a tad too big to use one-handedly
  • Quite basic in terms of additional features

Аппарат мощный, хорошо выполняет поставленные задачи. OnePlus хорошо поработали над камерами в этом смартфоне, фотографирует замечательно! Батарея нормальная, но в некоторых условиях использования садится быстро, но компенсируется быстрой зарядкой. Иногда греется, вышел очень горячий 888 дракон🐲

Pros

  • Камера
  • Производительность
  • Софт
  • Экран
  • Внешний вид

Cons

  • Горячий 888 дракон😄

I know there may be other phones that came out when this one did that may be better than this one, and there's always new phones coming out and this phone is from last year so there are definitely some phones by now that are better than this one... But it feels like most of the negativity towards still-amazing yet last-year phones comes from YouTubers or people who can afford to get the newest phone every time it comes out. But for me, who upgraded to this phone from a HTC DESIRE 650, it is the best smartphone I've ever had, and I'll still be rocking it for years to come. (Though I am excited to see what future OnePlus(and other brands) phones will be like, and yes I want to buy them too, but I just can't afford that everytime.)

Pros

  • Super Fast Charging
  • Very Durable
  • ALERT Slider 👌
  • Pairs and works amazingly with OnePlus Buds Z.
  • Has 2 speakers with VERY loud yet SUPER clear quality sound from BOTH speakers on the phone. Speakers also have Surround Sound.
  • 2 mics too!
  • A LOT of cool features which are AWESOME and compared to my old phone they are also too many to mention 😂

Cons

  • Battery only lasts a day with my regular usage.
  • Fingerprint scanner could be faster and be able to recognize my fingerprint from more angles.
  • I'd still like a headphone jack.
  • Started getting scratches too easily after I took the screen protector off. (I know I shouldn't have done that.)
  • Gets dirty a bit easily.
  • Flashlight could be brighter.
  • Newest update from Android 11 to Android 12 not only gave me a lot of features I DON'T need, but took away a lot of features I really liked, and changed a lot of settings in the Settings app, and removed a lot of settings too.
  • Doesn't have a radio.

The waterproof depth rating indicates how well the device is protected against water ingress and water pressure. Devices which can withstand more water pressure are better for swimming or diving.
8.volume

104.5cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
9.lowest potential operating temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The minimum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.

Display

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
3.has an IPS screen
OnePlus 9 Pro
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
5.resolution

1440 x 3216px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
7.brightness

1300nits

A nit is a measurement of the light that a display emits, equal to one candela per square meter. Brighter displays ensure a screen's contents are easy to read, even in sunny conditions.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
Gorilla Glass is one of the most popular brands of chemically strengthened glass, manufactured by Corning. Several versions have been developed, the newer ones being more durable and providing better damage resistance.

Performance

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
2.RAM

12GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
A newer version of Android generally provides a better user experience. Major Android releases include new features and improvements to performance, as well as important security updates.

7.CPU speed

1 x 2.84GHz & 3 x 2.42GHz & 4 x 1.8GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 888)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
9.GPU clock speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

50MP & 48MP & 8MP & 2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.wide aperture (main camera)

f/2.2 & f/1.8 & f/2.4 & f/2.4

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
7.has a BSI sensor
OnePlus 9 Pro
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
OnePlus 9 Pro
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
OnePlus 9 Pro
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Phones with physical keyboards have dedicated media keys, such as: play, stop, next, previous, volume up/down, etc.

Battery

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
