Updated on 2018-01-10 by Geetansh Arora

Comparison of OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10

Honor View 10 is the latest smartphone from Honor/Huawei in India and it is the successor of Honor 8 Pro. Honor 8 Pro came out last year with some solid specs at a price of 29999. This year we have Honor View 10 again with solid specs at a price of 29999. 

Honor View 10 is in the segment we call the budget flagship where you get flagship hardware at a much lower price. Flagships cost more than 50k these days but phones like OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10 offer same experience at a much lower price. Here's the comparison of Honor 8 Pro and OnePlus 5 which we did last year.

In this article, we take a look at the comparison of OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10. 

1. Design

OnePlus 5T's back is same as iPhone 7 Plus. It shows the lack of creativity of the OnePlus design team. Honor View 10 design is new and different and personally, I like it more. OnePlus 5T is not bad in any way, it's just that we like to see fresh designs instead of copy and paste.

2. SoC/Processor

OnePlus 5T has the latest and greatest Snapdragon 835 while the Honor View 10 runs on Kirin 970 chipset. You might not have heard about Kirin 970 because it is a chip made by Huawei and is used in Huawei phones only. Kirin 970 is a very powerful chip and beats Snapdragon 835 in various areas. If you would like to take a look at the comparison of Snapdragon 835 and Kirin 970 then take a look at this article. Honor View 10 wins this round because of a better chipset.

3. Display

OnePlus 5T has a large 6 inches Full HD+ AMOLED display and Honor View 10 also have a similar 6-inch size but it is an IPS LCD display. Both displays are sharp and have the same resolution. We like AMOLED displays as they are power efficient so OnePlus 5T wins this round.

4. RAM & Storage

Both phones have 6GB of RAM but the Honor View comes with 128GB of storage while OnePlus 5T lower variant comes with 64GB of storage. Honor View 10 wins storage round.

5. Software

OnePlus 5T runs on stock Android with few extra useful features and no bloatware at all. Honor View 10's software is not as clean or smooth as OnePlus 5's. So OnePlus 5 wins software round.

6. Camera Comparison

Both phones have a dual camera setup and offer great camera performance. The camera performance of both phones is almost similar most of the time and occasionally you will find OnePlus 5T performing better. Instead of writing a ton words here to describe their performance, we are including a video from C4ETech guys here who did a nice camera comparison of OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10

7. Battery and Charging

OnePlus 5T has a 3300mAh battery and Honor View 10 has a 3750 mAh battery. Even with a smaller battery, OnePlus 5T performs better because of more efficient processor and display. On charging side, both phones come with fast charging. OnePlus 5T calls their fast charging as dash charging and it is the fastest charging as of now. Honor View 10 also has fast charging which can charge the phone from 0 to 58% in just 30 minutes. So both phones are great at charging and OnePlus 5T provides longer backup so it wins this round.

8. Multitasking and Gaming

Thanks to powerful hardware and plenty of RAM, both phones are lightning quick and can handle multitasking and very heavy games with ease. You won't notice any lag on both these devices so it is a tie.

9. Price

Even if we compare the lower variant of OnePlus 5T with Honor View 10, View 10 will cost you Rs. 3000 less and offers double the storage(128GB vs 64GB on 5T). Honor View 10 wins price round.
