Video: OnePlus 5T vs iPhone X Camera Comparison
"Music" Hey guys It’s Sagar from Tecworkz. OnePlus 5T has been praised a lot, specially for its cameras. But does it have what it takes to compete with the dual cameras of the iPhone 10, lets find out. I have compared the camera of the 5T with that of the OnePlus 5, in a previous video, and honestly I did not find a huge difference there. But we will see how this video goes. I know that the OnePlus 5T costs much less than the iPhone 10, but that doesn’t automatically make it the winner in this competition. Keep in mind that this is a comparison between the cameras on these phones.
I have been using both these smartphones right from the day they launched, and both have received many software updates, which brought a lot of improvements in their camera performance. Lets first get the specs out of the way. On the OnePlus 5T, the main camera is a 16 Megapixel sensor with F/1.7 Aperture and Electronic stabilisation. Secondary camera, has a 20 megapixel sensor, and again a very wide F/1.7 Aperture. Both the cameras have 27mm lenses, which means you can no longer take optically zoomed 2X images. You can still take 2x images, but they are just digitally zoomed in. You also no longer have the option to use either of the lenses at your will. The phone chooses the lens to be used, depending upon the lighting conditions. There are dual 12 megapixel cameras on the iPhone 10.
Main camera has a 28mm wide lens, with f/1.8 aperture, and OIS. While the secondary camera has a 52mm lens, f/2.4 aperture and it is also optically stabilised. You can take 2x zoomed images and you can switch between either of the lenses whenever you want, while taking images and videos. 5T can shoot 4K videos at 30fps and 720p slow motion videos at 120fps. iPhone 10 can shoot 4K videos at 24,30 and 60fps and 1080p slow-motion videos at 240fps. There is a mammoth 16megapixel camera with F/2.0 aperture at the front of the OnePlus 5T, whereas the iPhone 10 has 7 megapixel camera with F/2.2 aperture. With the specifications out of the way, let us take a look at the images and videos from both these cameras. But before we get to that, make sure to hit the subscribe button, so you don’t miss out on any of the amazing videos, coming up on this channel. The daylight images from both these phones are really good.
But the colours are a bit different from both these phones. iPhone captures a bit warmer and richer looking colours, while the colours from the 5T are a bit cooler and seem a bit washed out in comparison. There are slightly more details in the images from the iPhone 10. Since the 5T has a higher megapixel sensor, I expected it to be the other way around. But it seems like the image processor on the iPhone does a better job than the image processor on the OnePlus 5T. These images are taken with the 2x mode on both these cameras. On the 5T, its just a digitally zoomed image, but on the iPhone 10, its optically zoomed. You can digitally zoom in a lot more on both these phones, and these images have been captured by zooming in 6 times. And again image from the iPhone is much sharper and good looking than the one from the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus has always had a bit of problem when it comes to focusing while taking close up images, and the 5T still has that issue.
But you can switch to the manual mode and set the focus wherever you want. These images look great from both the phones, but the colours, contrast and the dynamic range, again are better from the iPhone 10. Here are a couple of more shots showing the dynamic range of both these cameras. iPhone 10 captures amazing dynamic range, as you can see in these shots. Now lets take a look at the portrait mode images. This is where OnePlus is said to do really well. Both take amazing portraits shots, and they are getting better at it with each software update. Edge detection on both has got much better than how it was at the launch. Since both the lenses on 5T have similar focal length, the background in its portrait images is not as compressed as it is in the images from the iPhone 10. OnePlus also has a much wider aperture on the secondary lens, so its portrait images are also brighter than those from the iPhone 10. As we move to artificial and lower lighting conditions, we see a bigger difference between the images from both these phones. OnePlus 5T is supposed to perform much better in lower lighting conditions, thanks to its secondary camera.
But this improved performance is still not enough to take on the iPhone 10 in these situations. iPhone still captures better colours, sharper, detailed and brighter images. If we zoom in on this image, we clearly see the iPhone capturing more details. But this can only be seen if you zoom in. Otherwise, they look equally good. Front facing camera on the OnePlus 5T, captures detailed and sharper images, but I like the way iPhone captures the colours and the dynamic range. 5T also has a wider lens on the front facing camera of the two, so you can get more of your friends in the shot. On the iPhone 10, you can now take portraits images with the front facing camera as well. They might not be as sharp or clear as the ones from the rear camera or the front camera of the newer Pixel phones, but it still does a good job. Videos from both these phones are very smooth. Electronic stabilisation on the 5T does a great job, and the Optical stabilisation on the iPhones has always been amazing. You can shoot 720p videos in 120fps on the 5T, but the iPhone can take it to the next level, by shooting 1080p videos at 240fps, its just a treat to look at.
With all of the image and video samples that we have seen in this video, its clear that the iPhone 10 has a better set of cameras, and we knew this before even starting this video. But it also costs almost 3 times as much as the OnePlus 5T, and the actual difference between the images of the two, is not as big as the difference in their price. If you are looking to choose between these phones based on their camera, then go with the iPhone 10. It costs a lot, but it also packs in amazing set of dual cameras. On the other hand, you can get the OnePlus 5T, save a lot of money, and still get a set of cameras, which are not too far behind in this comparison. So now after checking out the image and video samples, which one will you choose? Let me know in the comments section. That is it for this video guys.
