Although the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro have been presented as revolutionary models with great advances in different areas such as cameras, they have yet to demonstrate what they are capable of in such important areas as the battery. That is why it is very important to see how they resist in the autonomy tests , to see if other smartphones with great potential can overshadow them.
To carry it out, Phone Arena has taken the Samsung Galaxy S21 and iPhone 12 as great competitors, demanding maximum autonomy on equal terms through different methods. To have even more data, there has been evidence of other previous tests with different models such as the previous OnePlus 8T that left good results.
Battery tests for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro
With the 4,500 mAh battery that the OnePlus 9 stores in their cells, they have had to suffer demands in the comparison, putting it to the test in something as simple as web browsing in 60 Hz and 120 Hz, but also in the reproduction of videos of YouTube and especially in 3D games at 60 Hz. With all these tests we can realize what they are capable of doing and offering to users.
Starting with navigation, the real leader in autonomy results is the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which manages to bypass the OnePlus 9 and the iPhone 12 at 60 Hz and 120 Hz. At 60 Hz the S21 Ultra manages to reach up to 16 hours of autonomy , while in 120 Hz it reaches 14 hours and 43 minutes.
The times that the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro achieve at this point are quite modest, where the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max make you lag behind in web browsing. This would be the weakest point for the OnePlus manufacturer, which cannot find the key to optimize this situation that was already seen in the previous OnePlus 8T.
The closest video playback
A point where the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro have improved and are placed above Samsung’s own models in video playback on YouTube, in this case the two OnePlus get 9 hours and 16 minutes of playback, in turn the S21 Ultra stays in 8 hours and 52 minutes, something that is not far from the S21 Plus with 8 hours and 27 minutes. Further back are the iPhone 12 that continue to have battery deficiencies in this section.
OnePlus passes the “game”
When it comes to playing demanding games that require 3D graphics, mobiles come to suffer a significant drop in autonomy due to the high effort involved. In this case, OnePlus proves to have taken a big step with the Snapdragon 888, managing to exceed 9 hours playing on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro . Behind it is the S21 Ultra, which is its not reprehensible 8 hours and 40 minutes is also at the level. Meanwhile the iPhone 12 do not exceed 7 hours, lagging far behind.
