The OnePlus 10T was recently launched. It’s OnePlus’ second flagship phone for 2022, so you’d expect it to be better than the OnePlus 10 Pro that was released before it. However, this is not the case with the new phone. Most of our readers think that the OnePlus 10T is not that trendy, probably because of all the sacrifices it makes to keep the price down. But there is a OnePlus flagship that people are still willing to buy. It’s not even a new phone. But people think that this may be the best time to pick it up.

Which OnePlus phone would you rather buy?


After the launch of OnePlus 10T, android authority Robert Triggs wrote about how this may be the best time to buy the OnePlus 9 Pro. Why? Because the OnePlus 10 series has been a bit of a disappointment and the OnePlus 9 Pro has matured well over time. It seems that our readers agree.

We received over 11,300 votes in our survey asking people which OnePlus phone they would buy right now, with the majority (59%) saying they would prefer the OnePlus 9 Pro over the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10T.

16% of voters said they would go for the OnePlus 10 Pro and only 10% said they would buy the OnePlus 10T. 15% of voters said they would not go for any of these OnePlus phones.

Your comments

Martin Pollard: I already bought a refurbished 9 Pro from Amazon. I was going to stick with my trusty 7 Pro, but the price was too good to pass up. I’m going to miss the pop-up selfie camera that made the 7 Pro notchless, but I’ll learn to live with the 9 Pro’s hole punch. My 7 Pro has now become my go-to ROM development phone, while my trusty old 3T (which hit the upgrade wall in Android 11) is retired as my desktop media player.

Phil: Oh yeah, the perfect time to buy the phone with the only OS with a GApps image that doesn’t have Google Assistant driving mode; also with the 120hz refresh rate display that is intentionally set to 60hz when it detects a game being played. Maybe you should get the Chinese model too, so you don’t get 5G in Western regions. I can’t imagine any buyers regret after buying this phone.

Beardednomad: The 10 Pro is an amazing phone, I got it after the terrible experience I had with the Pixel 6 and I’ve never been happier. Everything works. OS12 is different, but it’s not too bad once you get used to it. It’s much closer to OneUI or MIUI, which I actually prefer.

Sprat: OnePlus 9 pro was great until they merged their OS with Oppo. OnePlus is now on the same level as Motorola, in terms of devices, with a similar price to Samsung. I’ll probably switch to the phone for nothing.

eszklar: I’ve always considered OnePlus phones to be the spiritual successor to the Google Nexus line in terms of being tweaked by the ROM community. Given the problems people have with stock software, why not install LineageOS instead and test the phone’s performance?

Kira: Seems like a decent deal at that particular price.
