Honor View 10 vs. OnePlus 5T: Specs and price comparison

In Phones by Ramon Lopez0 Comments

Huawei has announced the Honor View 10 flagship smartphone at a global event in London.

The launch follows the Honor V10 launch in China the previous month. The two phones are identical to one another inside, but are different looks-wise.

In any case, the Honor View 10 is the first Android Oreo device under the Honor brand, and it boasts the same core specs as the more expensive Huawei Mate 10 Pro, which is officially priced at P38,990 (approximately $769) in the Philippines.

By contrast, the View 10 will sell for a more palatable 499 euros ($590) across Europe and in select countries, including the U.S. and India. A local release is probably out of the question seeing that Huawei had previously stopped selling Honor phones in the Philippines. But yeah, the View 10 is basically a modern flagship without the heady price tag.

Which is very much in the tradition of the OnePlus phones and the recently outed OnePlus 5T. It will start at P26,990 ($532) locally for 64GB of storage with 6GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 5T with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM will reportedly fetch a price tag of P30,990 ($611).

It’s still reasonably priced, mind you. However, it bears mentioning that domestic pricing is close to what some other companies are asking for their premium devices. Globally, the OnePlus 5T is a more attractive choice, with a $499 (P25,304) starting price before tax.

But in terms of specs and hallmark features, both the OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10 impress on paper, offering performance and user experience that rival or surpass those offered in higher price segments. To recap, the OnePlus 5T is built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform; the Honor View 10, on the other hand, packs the same AI-capable Kirin 970 chipset included in the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

Both are limited to 1080p, though, which could be a sticking point for some considering their 6-inch displays. On the flip side, hooray for potentially longer battery life! For more about these two phones, check out this detailed specs comparison.

The Honor View 10 will go on sale outside of China from January 8, 2018, while the OnePlus 5T is already available in some countries.
