As painful as it is for many budget-conscious Android power users to revisit the “vanilla” OnePlus 9 more than a year after the handset’s commercial debut for lack of a non-Pro OnePlus 10 model, there’s a great new deal that you should definitely know about.
Originally priced at a pretty reasonable $729.99 and recently reduced to just $529 for just 24 hours by its own manufacturer, the 6.55-inch 5G phone with a Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood is now even cheaper… for Amazon Prime members.
In fact, the e-commerce giant’s new $230 discount is completely unprecedented to our knowledge, making it without a doubt one of the top Prime Day 2022 phone sales only today (July 12) and tomorrow (July 13).
Coated in “Astral Black” and “Winter Mist” shades, the unlocked US OnePlus 9 has a Fluid AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate technology alongside Qualcomm’s aforementioned state-of-the-art processor (from last year), as well as a large 4,500 mAh battery that’s suitable is for 65W wired and 15W wireless speeds.
Admittedly, the triple rear-facing camera system isn’t exactly as good as it gets, including a pretty much useless 2MP monochrome sensor alongside solid 48MP primary and 50MP secondary shooters, but by $500 standards, those image specs aren’t bad actually either. .
Those two high-end Android phones are really quite similar, but with a glossy glass back, better cameras overall, faster charging, and more RAM in an entry-level 128GB storage configuration, the non-Pro. OnePlus 9 5G feels like the smarter choice right now… if you choose to ignore Samsung’s undeniably superior software support.
