OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 were launched in India earlier this week as the company’s latest flagship phones. Both phones are available for pre-order, with sales slated to begin next month. While the OnePlus 9 Pro price in India starts at Rs. 64,999, the OnePlus 9 starts at Rs. 49,999. On this week’s episode of Orbital, this week’s Gadgets 360 podcast, we discuss the OnePlus 9 Pro review and the success of the OnePlus 9 series in India. Gadgets 360 Deputy Review Editor Roydon Cerejo and reviewer Aditya Shenoy join new host Akhil Arora to discuss all things OnePlus.

We’ll kick off the discussion by discussing whether the OnePlus 9 series is as good as being hyped for launch. Roydon also looks at OnePlus 9 Pro vs. OnePlus 8 Pro and which is better. We also discuss the Hasselblad partnership in which OnePlus pledged to invest $150 million (approximately Rs. 1,090 crores) in the Swedish camera company.

Aditya pointed out that by significantly increasing the price of the OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 in India over their predecessors, OnePlus left its “flagship killer” philosophy behind. We then discuss in which departments the OnePlus 9 series lags.

OnePlus 9 Pro Review: aim for the moon​

The OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 camera not only have tweaks from Hasselblad but also from Sony. We’ve shed some light on those tweaks and how they help make the OnePlus 9 Pro a compelling option against the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

We also discuss which phones compete with the OnePlus 9 Pro in the market. Notably, the phone is available at a price closer to that of the iPhone 12 mini.

In the second half of the episode, Gadgets 360 news editor Abhinav Lal and chief sub-editor Shayak Majumder—both infused with DC comic books—join host Akhil to talk about Zack Snyder’s Justice League, popularly known as the “Snyder Cut”. The film is available on HBO platforms and on-demand services.

We kick off the discussion by telling how we finished the four-hour film. Abhinav and Shayak mention what they didn’t like about the original Justice League released in 2017, which Snyder Cut manages to improve upon.

Aside from talking about the good and bad of Justice League Snyder Cut, which Akhil sees as a missed opportunity for distributor HBO Max, we’ll discuss why the movie could have ended well before the actual ending. Abhinav and Shayak also talk about some inconsistencies between different scenes and how non-comic book fans would perceive it.

We also discuss the Justice League 2 plot and how Snyder wasted DC’s advantage. The discussion then turns to logical gaps and disappointments with the Snyder Cut. Somewhere towards the end, we talk about the weird 4:3 aspect ratio that Snyder chose over a traditional one.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
