So, the OnePlus 9 series is finally official and they teased the heck out this lineup, not the phone but cameras. OnePlus partnered with Hasselblad this time and its a long term partnership, 3 years and they say, they have put $150 million. They showed us moonshots, astronauts, earth from the moon. So, this could be interesting. They also showcased a new OnePlus Watch.

Let’s get the specs out of the way, both the phones get a 120hz, Fluid AMOLED 2.0 with 6.55″ FHD+ and 6.70″ QHD+ display for OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, respectively with LTPO screen in the Pro which can go from 120hz al the way down to 1hz to save battery. The 9 Pro has slightly curved display and the standard 9 has a flat display, I personally prefer the curved display. The 9 Pro gets a 10-bit display which gives a peak brightness of 1300 nits and OnePlus 9 gives 1100 nits.

Now, the thing OnePlus was so excited to show to the world, the cameras, built in partnership with Hasselblad. So, both the 9 and the 9 Pro gets the same camera system. The main lens is a 48mp(f/1.8) Sony IMX789, which is a 1 inch sensor in a smartphone, there is a 50mp(f/2.2) ultrawide which is supposed to iron out all the distortion at the edges, there is a 3x telephoto on the Pro plus a monochrome sensor on both of them along with a 16mp(f/2.4)

OnePlus is not kidding when it comes to video capabilities, both of them can shoot up to 8k 30fps which is even better than Galaxy S21s and 4k 120fps. Hasselblad has optimized the stills that come out, I haven’t got a chance to test the phone out so I can’t much at this point but I did saw the new camera interface with the Hasselblad orange shutter button and the shutter click sound. Both of them has stereo speakers and while the Pro has an official IP rating, the standard 9 can survive some splashes.

Both of them is powered by the new Snapdragon 888, they come with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage as standard. Fun Fact, still has a 65watt charger in the box, OnePlus calls it the Warp Charge 65T, it can charge the phone in mere 29 minutes and 50watt wireless charger can charge them up in 43 minutes. OnePlus compared it to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which they named “Another Phone” which was charging via cable and OnePlus 9 Pro was charging wirelessly. Both of them has a 4500 mAh cell.

The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro comes with exciting new colorways, Morning Mist, Pine Green, Stellar black for the 9 Pro and Winter Mist, Arctic Sky, Astral Black for standard 9. Also, the frame on the standard OnePlus 9 is plastic now to save costs. OnePlus also talked about multiple layers of copper and graphite for heat dissipation away from the processor and the screen. Pricing, the OnePlus 9 costs at $729(Rs.49,999) for 8GB RAM with 128GB storage and OnePlus 9 Pro starts at $969(Rs.64,999) so the slow crawl in price is still going on. I’ll leave the links of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro and also India-Exclusive 9R as soon as they come out.

As a whole, the OnePlus 9 lineup is a complete package and could be the value king this year but the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition, its nemesis, is still at the horizon and we’ll to wait and see.

So, as the launch of OnePlus 9 series comes closer, I want to talk about the 6 month refresh cycle of OnePlus. Every year OnePlus launches their flagships in the month of March-April and then the ‘T’ version of it in October-November. Let’s talk about, what does the ‘T’ mean?

There has been some reports saying the ‘T’ is answer to Apple’s ‘S’, as T comes after S, therefore better than S and 6 month refresh cycle is there because Carl Pei said that he couldn’t wait for a whole year to show people the next innovation in OnePlus devices. Does it makes sense, though? Well, it gives customers the choice to buy the latest flagship and not leave them in the middle ground as the last phone is 6 month old and next is 6 month away and its good for profit, Samsung released 23 smartphones last year, granted they were not flagships but the Galaxy A51 was best selling android phone and 2nd best selling phone overall.

Now, for some cons. The March flagships and the T flagships both come with different software, OnePlus is proud as they’re the first brand, after Google, to ship the next android generation out-of-the-box and the march flagships follow but for some reason the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro still hasn’t got Android 11 update(as of writing this). I talked to some people when the OnePlus 7T Pro was announced and everyone’s reaction was “I feel cheated” as it just a upgrade in the chipset and it was “latest”.

Thankfully, OnePlus didn’t announce any 8T Pro, they said because the 8 Pro was so good, it didn’t need a upgrade. Now, does it makes sense to buy the T? I personally would take the March flagship as it is the major upgrade from the last gen while the T has some minor upgrades, like the 8T got faster charging and 120hz instead of 90hz on standard 8. I still need to see the software support for the Ts because my cousin owns a OnePlus 5T and OnePlus killed the connection after Android 10 but the newer Ts are getting the new android gen out-of-the-box.

It would be interesting to see how this plays out and OnePlus is teasing the heck out of the Hasselblad partnership, so that’s also something to lookout for. I’ll be covering the OnePlus 9 series, so stay tuned for that.

So, 2020 is about to end in a few days time and I(people) had some thoughts and the topic for this blog is people’s thoughts on smartphones these days. Everyone is saying that all the smartphones look the same and are boring with no major upgrades from one generation to the next. Well, there can be a debate on this, its true that all the smartphones of today are pretty similar but that’s the beauty of it, now you can pick up any phone and wouldn’t be disappointed, plus there’s so few differences in feature set of the flagships and the mid-range or even the budget range. The Pixel 4a can shoot stills which much more expensive offerings can’t.

That was the one side of it but on the other hand, phones like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a 108MP main sensor, with 8k video recording, from a smartphone. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max can shoot in Dolby Vision HDR, its at that quality that most devices doesn’t support it. The OnePlus 8T can charge at 65w fast charging or the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra which can charge at 120w, these kind of devices keep things interested in the industry. If this wasn’t enough, brands came out with folding phones, like the 2nd gen Galaxy Z Fold2 5G or the Moto Razr 5G, every manufacturer has their own philosophy of multitasking and fitting a bigger screen in your pocket, like with the Galaxy Fold, Samsung folded the tablet sized display is half or the Galaxy Z flip and the Moto Razr folds in a clamshell making a normal phone more pocketable or the Microsoft Surface Duo which has two displays glued together with a 360° hinge.

In today’s world, every brand is trying to web you in their ecosystem, like Apple, a ecosystem which is becoming more and more exclusive to its products each day or Samsung, which may not be as exclusive but has a much more wide range of products ranging from smartphones to TVs to refrigerators to smart home appliances like Ballie and there are rumors of an OnePlus smartwatch in partnership with Google.

In the end, buying a phone is a very personal decision, if not the most and I and in fact, every tech youtuber or blogger is trying to show you the best deal for your hard-earned money. I can tell you which is the best but I cannot influence your preference or choice, like a iPhone user will not change to an android phone because its their choice, while the phones in that price point provide much more on paper but the user wants to buy the new iPhone and doesn’t care about the spec sheet.

So, its finally december and a fullstop to the year 2020 and while this might not be great for everybody, its been awesome for tech. We had many launches/unveiling ranging from smartphones to tablets to the new Next-Gen consoles. A bit of disclaimer, the choices below are my personal preferences and what I think might be the best for your buck. So, let’s get into it, I’ve divided the categories into six parts, Budget, Mid-Range, Flagship, the best overall package, the most innovative and the bust of 2020. I’ll be sharing my personal favorite in the end.

Budget(~$400 or less)

The participants for this round are the OnePlus Nord, Google Pixel 4a and iPhone SE. I’ll not dive too deep here, if you want to see the comparison just click here, The Midfield Battle. Anyway, for me the Pixel wins the battle because it has the vanilla android with first in line for updates, a killer still camera without any useless 2mp lenses, stereo speakers and its the best of both worlds, the compact form-factor as the iPhone SE and a great OLED display like the Nord. Now, I know that the Nord got a high refresh rate, glass back and faster charging but most people will slap a case on the back, so it doesn’t matter and iPhone SE, in the same category, has got the 5w ultra slow charger in 2020, this makes the 18w decently fast charger of Pixel look pretty good.

Mid-Range($500 to $800)

In the ring for this round are, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, OnePlus 8/8T, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 and the Google Pixel 5. Now, this segment has been the most tricky one, because the S20 FE and 8T are value kings and the iPhones are more of a premium devices. So, I choose the iPhone 12 Mini as the winner, its a massive refresh to see a phone, at this price point, as small as this, with a screen size of just 5.4″, the phone, physically, is smaller than the iPhone SE but has a much larger display. The features are exactly same as the OG 12 but just smaller in size. To read in detail, just click here, iPhone 12 series.

Premium Flagships(~$900 or above)

Now, this is where things get interesting, this is the bracket where brands doesn’t hold back and give us everything their R&D teams can squeeze out of the technology available. The contenders are the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, OnePlus 8 Pro and the Motorola Edge. Now, Apple says that the iPhone 12 Pro Max gets a 47% larger sensor than the 12 Pro but its still quite small compared to the Note 20 Ultra, it still gets a new Sensor Shift Stabilization which can stabilize a footage 5k times per second than the usual 1k times in normal OIS, pretty impressive, but the winner of this round is the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra because it has a much faster refresh rate at 120hz, a 9ms latency S pen, much bigger main camera sensor at 108mp and a fast charger included in the box(*last point is just for humor).

The Bust of 2020

This does not come as a surprise, the worst smartphone of 2020 is the regular Galaxy Note 20, while its big brother is best android phone on the planet(if you can afford one), it does not live up to any standards of a $1000 phone. The OnePlus 8 Pro has a better spec sheet and is still cost less. It has a 1080p 60hz display which is exactly the same as Samsung’s own budget smartphone, the Galaxy A51/A71. The back is made up of Plastic, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with plastic but at that price, I would want my phone feel a bit more premium. It has faster S pen than the last gen at 26ms latency but still slower than 9ms of the Ultra.

The Best Overall Value

It was a close call but the best value smartphone of the year is the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. The only two phones in the race were S20 FE and the OnePlus 8T. Both trade blows in features and also cost around the same price. The S20 FE doesn’t support the crazy 65w charging of the 8T but the S20 FE has more pros, it has wireless and reverse wireless charging, an official IP rating and better cameras. The third camera on the S20 FE is a telephoto lens than a useless 5mp macro and 2mp monochrome lens as the 8T. The OnePlus 8T is a bit more premium because it has a glass back but the S20 FE has a plastic back. Both the phones have a 120hz refresh rate and have a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, in the case of S20FE including European regions, too but not India and other international markets.

The Most Innovative of 2020

Most people are saying that smartphones are all the same and boring now, well, Samsung, LG, Microsoft and Motorola has just the answer for you. Last year, Samsung started the trend of folding phones and it caught on fairly quickly. This year Samsung and Motorola is back with their 2nd generation as the Z Fold2 5G and Razr 5G but this year Microsoft and LG also threw their hats in the ring as the Surface Duo and Wing, respectively. Now, all the Fold, Surface Duo and Razr and a folding phone but the LG Wing is a device that I’m out of words to explain the mechanism on paper, basically the main screen swivels revealing half a screen and forming a T-shaped device but it still a 1st gen product, so while being great, developers still need to optimize apps to work with it. The winner is this category is the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G because Samsung really took customer’s feedback on-board and improved it from the OG Fold. It now gets a bigger cover display, shrunk the cut-out on the inner display to just a tiny punch hole, made the inner display 120hz, now it might not be as durable as a mainstream smartphone but seeing that the tech is still improving, I’m gonna let that slide.

My Personal Favorite

As you’ve seen in the above image, its the iPhone 12 Pro, not the Pro Max, just the Pro. Now, there’s a reason why this is my favorite, the flat edges, the cameras and the colors. Apple’s decision to go back to the flat edges really makes the new iPhones feel much more premium plus the stainless steel makes it the durability champ. I know the 12 Pro Max has the jump in cameras but its really not that much and the they both the LiDAR sensor which really helps in AR, depth mapping and low light portraits. I do miss the Sensor Shift Stabilization but considering, both the Pros can shoot Dolby Vision HDR, I’m not too worried. Now, colors might not be a big advantage in terms of use but I’m in love with the Pacific Blue. This year all the new iPhones upgraded to 5G so this plus Apple’s track record of 5-year updates really makes it future proof.

So, that’s been it for the 2020 Smartphone Awards. If you liked any of this above then like, share, subscribe and follow, also follow me on Instagram at scuderiavedang. I’ll be leaving the Amazon links for the winners of each category down below.

iPhone 12 Mini Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G (Mystic Bronze, 12GB RAM, 256GB Storage) Samsung Galaxy Note 20 (Mystic Blue, 8GB RAM, 256GB Storage) Galaxy S20 Fan Edition Samsung Galaxy ZFold 2 5G

We have the Pixel 5, the new iPhone 12 non-pro models, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and OnePlus’ own 6 month old flagship, the OnePlus 8. Now, the OnePlus is back with their 6 month refresh cycle and gave us the OnePlus 8T.

So, during the first half of 2020, brands were racing towards the mid-range market or the $400 price point and this race gave many good smartphones from Samsung’s A series, the OnePlus Nord, the Google Pixel 4a and also Apple’s iPhone SE but they are now coming to the middle of mid-range and flagship category which is the semi-flagship or the $600-$700 price range.

First, let’s talk specs, it has a 6.55″ 120hz Fluid AMOLED FHD+ flat display with 402 ppi, so the curved edges are gone. It has a quad camera system, a 48mp(f/1.7) main wide lens with OIS, a 123° FOV 16mp(f/2.2) ultrawide and a 5mp macro and a monochrome sensor. It has a 16mp(f/2.4) wide lens on the front. It can shoot upto 4k@60fps. Powering this is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, so its 5G enabled and it comes two storage variants, 128gb with 8gb RAM and 256gb with 12gb RAM with UFS 3.1 storage. Also, I didn’t understand the use of two flash on the back.

It comes in two colors, Lunar Silver which is matte and a glossy Aquamarine Green which changes between blue and green depending upon how light hits it. It two 2250mAh battery combining to a 4500mAh cell, now OnePlus split the battery to keep the phone cool during charging because the 8T comes with a insane 65w charger out-of-the-box, they call it the Warp Charge 65. Talking about keeping the phone cool, the new vapour chamber is, according to them, 285% bigger and it is,after Google, to come with Android 11 out-of-the-box.

As the OnePlus 8, there is no wireless charging and a official IP rating and OnePlus also confirmed that there will be no OnePlus 8T pro this year, and the OnePlus 8 pro is still the best among them. Putting this against its competitors, it really comes down to personal preference because all the phones in this price range trade blows, if you have a preference for iPhones then you’ll go for the iPhone 12s or the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition or the Pixel 5 but the Pixel 5 has a lower 90hz refresh rate as compared to 120hz of the S20 FE or the 8T and it also comes with the upper mid range chip, the Snapdragon 765G but both the 8T and S20 FE come with the flagship Snapdragon 865 and 865+, respectively.

It is gonna set you back $749(₹42,999) but it’s still good run for your money but in India, its almost half the price of the iPhone 12 and 12 mini and $100 cheaper than the Galaxy S20 FE, also Pixel 5 is not coming to India, so it seems like a no brainer.

Now if you found this helpful, then like, share and subscribe and follow me on Instagram at scuderiavedang, also tell me your thoughts on the OnePlus 8T in the comments below.

OnePlus 8T

Its 2020 and people don’t have much money lying around to spend on a $1400 flagship. So, the race to the middle is on, with more and more brands launching $400 mid range phones and they’re quite good.

So far, we have OnePlus going back to its roots with the Nord, Google, after a billion years of leaks, coming with the Pixel 4a and, in all weirdness, Apple with the new 2020 iPhone SE. Now, let’s dive into specs.

OnePlus Nord

So, first up we have the Nord, deriving it name from the direction North, it’s pretty great. It has a great display, many cameras, fast charging and a great packaging. Talking about numbers, for the display we have a 6.44″ FullHD+ 408 PPI 90hz AMOLED screen with a pill shaped hole punch camera in the top left corner. It has edge-to-edge display which is on par with 2020 standards. The screen resolution is 2400×1080 with 20:9 aspect ratio with HDR10+ support.

Now, the cameras, six, that’s right, it has six cameras in total, four on the back and two on the front. The main shooter is 48mp(f/1.8) with OIS, an 8mp(f/2.3) 119° ultrawide, 5mp(f/2.4) depth sensor and 2mp(f/2.4) macro lens, the front has a 32mp(f/2.5) main lens and a 8mp(f/2.5) 105° ultrawide. I said many cameras and not great ’cause they aren’t. The main lens is good, when you give it well lit conditions, it will give you a good and sharp images. Things go south when we check out the other lenses, the ultrawide is good at capturing more into the shot without making you go further back but the sharpness takes a hit, the images are a bit too soft shifting from the main lens and the depth camera is absolutely useless because even if you cover the depth sensor with your finger or anything else, it will still the portrait shot and the macro lens is just bad. Coming at just 2mp, even if you shoot in sunlight, it will struggle to focus and because of that low rez camera, the photos does not have any sharpness.

So what if the cameras not as good but it still has many great stuff. The Warp Charging 30T is fastest charging in its competition. It has on-screen fingerprint sensor which is really fast to unlock along with face unlock which also very fast. Its future-proof with 5g. It does not a official IP rating but it has rubber rings on every opening of the phone. With the 4115 mAh battery, it should last you a whole day but if it doesn’t then the Warp Charge can give it 70% juice in 30 minutes. It is a Corning Gorilla 5 sandwich with metal buttons but plastic frame. It is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G which is a pretty good processor for mid range phone and it starts from €399 or ₹27,999 for 8GB+128GB.

Google Pixel 4a

After months and months of leaks and rumors, its finally here and it checks all the boxes while costing $50 less than iPhone SE at $349(~₹25,914). First let’s look at the thing you will look at the most, the display, it is a 5.8″ OLED panel 60hz with 443 PPI and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Pixel’s display is also very 2020 with minimum bezels and a single hole on top left corner of the screen and 2340×1080 screen resolution.

Google’s Pixel is known for it’s still and low light photography even in the budget range and the 4a keeps tradition going with exceptional camera. It has only two cameras, one on the back and one in the front. The rear has a 12.2mp(f/1.7) with OIS and a 8mp(f/2.0) front camera. You expect a ultrawide angle lens but that really, really good camera makes up for it. I shoot many stills and low light photos and it’s really good at that. The front camera is, although a not very high rez but clicks decent shots.

It comes Google’s stock android with a promise of at least 3 years of software updates. It has stereo speakers who quite loud. This time Google kept the Pixel extremely simple with no XL version and only one color, Just Black, and only one storage option at 128GB of ROM and 6GB of RAM. It get a mid range processor I.E. Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, which might not be 5g or a gaming processor but snappy in day-to-day tasks and would not give you trouble. It comes with an 18w fast charger out-of-the-box *Coughs*Apple.

iPhone SE 2020

Apple finally went to the drawing boards and designed an iPhone and 3 years later, we have the iPhone SE. I won’t go in-depth ’cause I already wrote a whole blog on that. If you wanna read that just Click here.

Comparison

Now, stacking them up against each other, which will come out on top?

Display

The OnePlus Nord is the only phone with a high refresh rate at 90hz, the other two are maxed out at 60hz. Both the Nord and Pixel has a OLED screen but the iPhone has a LCD, sorry, Super Retina Display, but the highest pixel density is in the Pixel, but it is very difficult to pick out pixels on the trio. iPhone might be LCD but has Apple has the LCD panels in the industry, you see the difference in high contrast content and blacks of the content. For me, the winner in the display department is the OnePlus Nord, because the OLED display and a high refresh rate.

Build Quality

Breaking down each of the phones, not literally, the Pixel 4a is all plastic build and Google didn’t tried to hide it, which is good, it will not break if it falls off your hand and much more durable than glass. The OnePlus Nord is a glass sandwich with metal buttons but a plastic frame, so it feels more premium than the Pixel but then iPhone SE enters the room with most premium in-hand feel among these, it is a metal and glass sandwich with full metal front and back with aluminium frame. So, the iPhone SE takes this one.

Cameras

Even with the most numbers of cameras, the Nord lags behind the Pixel and the iPhone. First, lemme give you the video specs, the OnePlus Nord can shoot upto 4k@30fps at the rear and 4k@fps on the front. The Pixel 4a can also shoot 4k@30fps at the rear but only 1080p@30fps at the front. The iPhone SE is the only phone which can shoot 4k@60fps from the rear but only 1080p@30fps from the front. Now, iPhone is the only one who does not have a night mode, there’s Night Sight and Nightscape on Pixel and Nord, respectively. Pixel has one more trick up its sleeve, that is the Astrophotography, if you don’t know what that is, if you put it on a tripod and click the shutter button then it captures light in most darkest areas and can shoot the stars clearly. So, in stills and low light, the Pixel wins, but when it comes to video, iPhone takes it home with highest resolution and high dynamic range. The Nord is still not lost, it has the most versatility.

Performance

When it comes to performance, I don’t even have to say who is the winner ’cause the iPhone SE has the chip which runs ahead of both OnePlus and Google flagship, the A13 Bionic is world’s most powerful processor. The Nord has the Snapdragon 765G which is a upper mid range chip and the Pixel has the Snapdragon 730G which totally mid range and should able to handle your daily tasks with ease.

Battery Life

While winning by miles in performance the iPhone lags way behind in battery with just 1821mAh which is lot smaller than Pixel’s 3140mAh and Nord’s 4115mAh, now even though the A13 Bionic is very power efficient processor but the battery is just too small even for that and Apple bundles a whopping 5w ultra fast charger*sarcasm*. The Pixel gets a 18w fast charger and the Nord has the 30w Warp Charger. So, among these Nord wins.

Special Features

Each of these phones has unique to themselves. Like the Astrophotography in the Pixel, 90hz refresh rate in the Nord. So, the SE is only one who has an official IP rating and wireless charging. Both the Pixel and iPhone has stereo speakers. Only the Nord has a in-screen fingerprint sensor.

Now, you wouldn’t be wrong going with any of these devices. Like, if you want OLED screen but not too big, you got the Pixel 4a. You want an iPhone and the A13 Bionic but wanna spend a $1000, get the iPhone SE. You want good value for money phone, get the OnePlus Nord.

OnePlus Nord

In the era of smartphones, where price tags are sky rocketing comes a brand named Oneplus. The brand is built on a name of “Flagship Killer”. The Generation Z wants everything to be fast and smooth and that’s what Oneplus fundamentally based upon. This brand is focused on all groups of people, weather you are a heavy user or casual gamer, they’ve got you covered. So…

In 2020, Oneplus introduced the Oneplus 8 and the Oneplus 8 pro and they went all out with the 8 pro. It now gets all the stuff it’s been lacking like the official IP68 rating, wireless charging and a great camera but this is only the case with the pro version, the standard 8 still doesn’t have all things mentioned above but it still is a great phone, it still ticks most of the boxes.

With that note, let’s talk about the displays. The Oneplus 8 pro has a 6.78 inch display and what I think is the best display in the market right now, as it is a 120hz, QHD+, fluid AMOLED display with a 3168×1440 screen resolution and 19.8:9 aspect ratio and it can do 120hz with QHD+ at the same time as compared to the S20 series which only allows you to go full on either refresh rate or screen resolution at a time. Its display can go upto 1300 nits of brightness which is really good.

The Oneplus 8’s display is a 6.55 inch FHD+, 1080×2400, 90hz panel and it’s not as good as the sibling but it not bad by any means, you still get the buttery smooth feeling of that 90hz refresh rate with bright colors and deep blacks of an OLED display. It can go upto 1100 nits of brightness, which can be useful when used in direct sunlight.

Now, coming to cameras. The Oneplus 8 pro has a quad camera setup containing the main camera of 48mp with Sony IMX 689 sensor, f/1.78 aperture and OIS. The second camera is a 48mp ultra-wide angle lens with a 117° field of view. The third lens is a 8mp 3x telephoto camera with OIS and the final lens is a color filter camera and compared to previous years, the camera is bang on a flagship level camera. It has better dynamic range, punchy colors but it still tend to lose focus if the object is small or thin. It can shoot upto 4k 60fps and also has a macro mode.

With the Oneplus 8, you still get the last year camera setup. It has a triple camera setup of 48mp with f/1.7 aperture primary lens with OIS, the ultra-wide angle lens of f/2.2 16mp lens and a third 2mp macro camera and it’s not great. In daylight, it can capture awesome shots but in low light or macro shots, the quality can deteriorate. Both phones have the same f/2.2 16mp front cameras which shoot only 1080p videos.

Both phones are future-proof because both comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 with the X55 modem which is 5g ready. Both phones support the warp charge 30t out of the box which can charge your phone 50% in 23 minutes but the pro can do insane 30w wireless charging which can get you 50% in 30 minutes. The Oneplus 8 and 8 pro comes with UFS 3.0 storage and LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 RAM for Oneplus 8 And 8 Pro, respectively. They both also come with a base storage of 128gb with 6gb of RAM. Both have stereo speaker setup with Dolby Atmos.

The Oneplus 8 comes with a 4300 mah capacity battery whereas the Oneplus 8 pro comes 4510 mah battery.

Now, if you’re in the market looking for a new phone which is fast and smooth then you can buy these with your eyes closed.
