    The OnePlus 9 Pro is a legitimate flagship phone that has the perfect potential of competing with the best that Android has to offer. But in terms of capturing the market share, the company has only been able to attract a small group of enthusiasts looking for a specific kind of elegance in their Android phones.

    On the other hand, the iPhone 13 packs great performance and an even great camera for the price tag. Both the phones have been out for a while and you can find the OnePlus 9 Pro on third-party websites at an even cheaper price than the one it launched with.

    Here is a detailed comparison between the iPhone 13 and the OnePlus 9 Pro.

    Design: iPhone 13 vs OnePlus 9 Pro

    OnePlus 9 Pro design

    The OnePlus 9 Pro impresses with a gorgeous eye-catching design that comes with a unique rear camera layout that is placed in a vertical layout of lenses arranged in a rectangular box. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 dual cameras are placed in a weird diagonal orientation that is a little bit bigger compared to the iPhone 12.

    The OnePlus 9 Pro is a large device featuring 6.7 inches display and weighs about 20grams more than the iPhone 13 that features 6.1 inches display. The design of the OnePlus 9 Pro is pretty much rounded with the traditional alert slider on the left side. The company has also decided to partner up with Hasselblad this time for the phone’s camera system.

    iPhone 13

    While the iPhone 13 has a very boxy design which some might like and some would hate. It certainly provides the feel of its well-built aluminium body. It still has a big notch on the display that houses the front camera and the rest of the sensors needed for Face ID. But the OnePlus instead comes with a tiny hole punch camera in the top left corner of the display and instead of face ID uses the in-display fingerprint scanner.

    Hardware: iPhone 13 vs OnePlus 9 Pro

    The OnePlus 9 Pro comes with a 6.7 inches LTPO Fluid2 AMOLED display and an adaptive screen refresh rate that can go from 120Hz all the way down to 1Hz to save battery. The display is HDR10+ certified, has a resolution of 1440 x 3216 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection for the display.

    The iPhone 13 comes with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with 2532 x 1170 pixel resolution and HDR10 certification. Moreover, you get TrueTone technology which can adjust the brightness according to your environment and scratch-resistant ceramic glass protection for the display. Sadly the iPhone 13 doesn’t carry the same higher refresh rate display that its big brother the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with and is clocked at 60Hz.

    OnePlus 9 Pro

    In terms of performance, OnePlus smartphones are always fast, snappy and fluid in performance and the OnePlus 9 pro is no exception. The phone is powered by a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset with Adreno 660 GPU. Even with gaming on these higher refresh rate 120hz displays the phone is a complete powerhouse and can handle anything that you throw at it. And coupled with 8/12GB RAM the device is a beast in multitasking.

    The iPhone 13 comes with a new A15 Bionic chip inside, while it is difficult to differentiate between the performance improvements over the A14 but it certainly feels snappy. Compared to the Pro models the regular iPhone 13 comes with one less GPU core (4 vs 5 of iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max). Overall in terms of benchmarks the A15 Bionic chipset beast the Snapdragon 888 chipset and coupled with iOS 15, the iPhone 13 is a better device in terms of performance.

    In terms of battery, the OnePlus 9 Pro comes with a 4500 mAh battery which is similar to that of the OnePlus 8 Pro. It also supports 65W fast charging that lets you fully charge your OnePlus 9 Pro in about half an hour.

    The iPhone 13 features about 25% smaller battery than the OnePlus 9 Pro, but with standard 60hz refresh rate display and efficient processor, the battery life should be comparable. The new iPhone takes about 30 minutes to reach 51% capacity with Apple’s 20W charger that you have to buy separately while OnePlus provides a charging adaptor in the box.

    Camera: iPhone 13 vs OnePlus 9 Pro

    Early this year (March 2021) OnePlus announced that they have partnered up with Hasselblad to improve its mobile photography experience. Both companies are focusing initially to produce natural colour tones that you see more often on pixel or iPhone rather than the oversaturated look of Samsung Galaxy devices. 

    In terms of camera specification on the OnePlus 9 Pro, it features a 48-megapixel main wide camera, 8-megapixel telephoto lens, 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. The phone does really well in competing with the iPhone 13. 

    iPhone 13

    iPhone 13 features a 12 MP dual camera setup at the rear where the primary 12MP camera has f/1.6 aperture and the ultra-wide camera has f/2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view. The OnePlus 9 Pro can shoot video at 4K in 60fps while the iPhone 13 can shoot at 4K 120fps and the results were pretty impressive. And with cinematic mode the iPhone 13 is the pick in this category if videography is what you aim to do with your smartphone.

    Software: iPhone 13 vs OnePlus 9 Pro

    Software

    The OnePlus 9 Pro comes with the Oxygen OS 11 and is built upon the Android 11 operating system and aims to deliver a complete bloatware Android experience. The company has shown commitment to providing two major OS updates and three years of bi-monthly security updates which puts it ahead of brands like Xiaomi but behind Google and Samsung. Oxygen OS feels very stock Android(ish) compared to Samsung which pushes their own advertisements and apps in the OS. 

    iOS 15

    The iPhone 13 comes with iOS 15 which isn’t a drastic change compared to the iOS 14 but comes with some of the most needed features that users have been asking for. It comes with a cleaner FaceTime interface and enables you to listen to music or watch movies or TV shows with your friends and family. The messages app has also received a new ‘Shared with You’ section for articles, photos, and more to make it easier to keep track of all different links sent by your friends.

    Conclusion: iPhone 13 vs OnePlus 9 Pro

    Both smartphones are very capable devices and offer an excellent smartphone photography experience with a clean OS. If you need solid video component photography, the iPhone 13 has it covered but when it comes to you just point and shoot video, the OnePlus 9 Pro might be a pretty good option for you especially after their partnership with Hasselblad.

    OnePlus 9 Pro may not be able to beat iPhone 13 in terms of performance and build quality but it certainly stays extremely close in terms of camera experience. But despite all these advancements and new partnerships, OnePlus needs to work hard on its flagship phones if it wants to catch up with rivals like Samsung and Apple.
