OnePlus 9R: Is This The Gaming Phone You Need?
While mobile games were previously played to kill time, users have taken the mobile gaming scene quite seriously lately. With games like BGMI, Call of Duty, Asphalt 9 and more, you need a good smartphone to have a great gaming experience. OnePlus aims to deliver exactly that with its OnePlus 9R.
OnePlus 9R, while not marketed as a gaming smartphone like the ROG Phone 5, offers everything a mobile gamer would need. OnePlus 9R has created a perfect balance in the company’s portfolio. The OnePlus 9 Pro is for those looking for the best, the Nord series focuses on people shopping on a budget, and the OnePlus 9R strikes a great balance between everything.
OnePlus 9R is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, which in our review showed it can handle anything thrown at it. When combined with up to 12GB of RAM, users can also open multiple apps at once without noticing any issues on the smartphone.
In order to fulfill all the games, the phone also comes with up to 256 GB of built-in storage. The company used UFS 3.1 storage which is almost three times faster than UFS 3.0.
Additionally, the OnePlus 9R is 5G ready as well, which means you should be able to enjoy high speed internet once 5G rolls out in India. With 5G and powerful internals, heat is becoming a major issue. To keep this under control, OnePlus has included 14 temperature sensors on the device. Using these sensors, the OnePlus 9R is able to maintain a cool temperature at all times. Cooling is provided by a vapor chamber lined with graphite and copper installed inside the phone.
OnePlus 9R features a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED panel with 2400×1080 pixels resolution and 120Hz refresh rate and HDR 10+ support. The screen is not only great for gaming, but also provides a good content viewing experience. The addition of a 120Hz refresh rate means the display is super smooth, whether gaming or scrolling Instagram.
It is not only the hardware end that guarantees a good gaming experience, but it is also the software. OnePlus has added a dedicated Pro Gaming mode which further improves performance by optimizing phone settings. It also removes any notifications that may be annoying during the game.

The only place where I think the OnePlus 9R lacks recoil are the cameras. At a starting price of Rs 34,999, the OnePlus 9R has a decent camera system. If gaming isn’t your priority but cameras are, you should consider other options including the iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, and more.
However, if you are looking for a smartphone that can meet your gaming needs and can serve as a good driver on a daily basis, the OnePlus 9R would be a great choice.
