The OnePlus 10T is the brand’s newest high-end smartphone, yet it is not universally regarded as the company’s best model. The OnePlus 10 Pro continues to be the brand’s flagship. However, the 10T does have a few benefits, which we’ll go over in this article. As the title clearly states, we will compare the OnePlus 10T and OnePlus 10 Pro in this article.
There are many similarities between these two phones, which is entirely expected. Though OnePlus did cut prices with the OnePlus 10T, there are several distinctions worth pointing out. The 10T still has a stronger SoC and faster charging, though, despite this. Overall, it’s a fascinating technology. We’ll start off by outlining the specifications of these two phones before moving on to other topics like design, display, performance, and so forth.

You can see the similarities between these two phones right away if you compare them side by side. Of course, that is not a coincidence. Although they feel slightly different in the hand, it is clear that they are siblings. Their backplates feel different in the hand, but the 10T has a flat display and is therefore, despite being wider, simpler to grip. They are both the same height, but the OnePlus 10T is a little bit thicker and heavier. Both do total a little more than 200 grams.
Advertisement Both the front and back of them have a fairly similar appearance. The display’s curvature and the location of the LED flash on the back serve as clear giveaways. By the way, both have a display camera hole in the top-left corner. On the right side of the OnePlus 10 Pro, there is an alert slider. However, this cannot be true of the OnePlus 10T. Here, OnePlus chose to go without the alert slider.
Neither phone is designed to be used with one hand. Although they are both rather big, the OnePlus 10T has a better grip. Although the OnePlus 10 Pro is slimmer, which is a plus, it also has a curved display. Therefore, when you choose to operate the gadgets with one hand, it is likely that you will use one-hand mode on them frequently.
Keep in mind that while the OnePlus 10T lacks formal IP certification, the OnePlus 10 Pro has received IP68 certification. If you do get caught in the rain, it should be okay. It’s also important to note that both phones include optical in-display fingerprint scanners, both of which are quick and reliable.
Advertisement DISPLAY ONEPLUS 10T VS ONEPLUS 10 PRO 6.7-inch displays are present on both devices, although they have different panels. FullHD (2412 x 1080) Fluid AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate is a feature of the OnePlus 10T. It can display up to 1 billion colors and supports HDR10 content. The panel is flat. A QHD (3216 x 1440) LTPO2 Fluid AMOLED display with up to 1 billion colors is included on the OnePlus 10 Pro.

Although it is adaptive, this monitor has a 120Hz refresh rate. With a maximum brightness of 1,300 nits, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s curved display is very brilliant. Only in automatic mode is this brightness possible; in manual mode, the maximum brightness is 800 nits. Unlike the OnePlus 10T, whose top layer of protection is yet unknown, its panel is shielded by Gorilla Glass Victus. Although we are aware of Gorilla Glass, we are unsure of the particular version.
Advertisement Undoubtedly more sophisticated is the OnePlus 10 Pro panel. It costs more money and appears more attractive on paper. But is there truly a significant difference between them when used? Okay, no. The OnePlus 10 Pro display does get brighter, and theoretically, it should consume less battery power, especially if the resolution is decreased. Due to the refresh rate, they are both extremely vivid, have great viewing angles, and are silky smooth. They also have excellent tactile sensitivity.
PERFORMANCE OF THE ONEPLUS 10T VS. THE ONEPLUS 10 PRO The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, the most advanced Qualcomm has to offer, powers the OnePlus 10T. The slightly less potent OnePlus 10 Pro has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 built in. Both phones include a sizable amount of UFS 3.1 flash storage and LPDDR5 RAM. The RAM capacities of the OnePlus 10T and 10Pro are up to 16GB and 12GB, respectively. Both phones run superbly even with 8GB of RAM.
Performance-wise, OnePlus smartphones have consistently ranked among the best smartphones on the market. This time is not any different. Both are easily able to munch through anything you can throw at them, including video games. Of course, the OnePlus gaming features are helpful. Although it seems that the OnePlus 10T gets less heated when in use, this could just be a placebo effect. Even though gaming naturally causes the temperature to rise, neither phone becomes too warm. We don’t really have any performance-related issues.
Advertisement BATTERY COMPARISON: ONEPLUS 10T VS ONEPLUS 10 PRO A 4,800mAh battery powers the OnePlus 10T, while a 5,000mAh battery powers the OnePlus 10 Pro. Of course, battery capacity is not everything. In reality, the OnePlus 10T has a significantly longer battery life. OnePlus optimizations, along with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and lower resolution display, undoubtedly play a role in this. We frequently reached 10 hours of screen time on the smartphone throughout our review, which is just absurd.
To be honest, there wasn’t much gaming going on, but there was a lot of YouTube and other apps. Overall, it boasts one of, if not the best battery life ratings available. Although the battery life of the OnePlus 10 Pro is not at all poor, it cannot match that of the OnePlus 10T. With the OnePlus 10 Pro, you might be able to get 6.5-7 hours of screen time; at least, that’s where we were.
Charges, what about them? Because OnePlus chose to save money there, the OnePlus 10T only supports cable charging. In most areas, it does enable 150W charging, though. The US can only charge at 125W. The OnePlus 10 Pro supports wired charging at 80W (65W in the US) and wireless charging at 50W. Additionally, it allows wireless reverse charging.
Advertisement CAMERAS: ONEPLUS 10T VS ONEPLUS 10 PRO Unfortunately, OnePlus chose to cut corners in the camera department for the OnePlus 10T. The 8-megapixel ultrawide and 2-megapixel macro cameras were used in place of the 50-megapixel ultrawide and 8-megapixel telephoto cameras by the corporation. The primary camera’s sensor was left intact, but because a different lens was employed, the overall quality of the images produced by the primary camera changed.

On top of everything else, there is no Hasselblad branding or influence in this image. Let’s begin with the most problematic component, the macro camera. Even high-end smartphones should not have a 2-megapixel camera in 2018. Unless there is a lot of light in a scene, the pictures really don’t turn out that great, and even then, mistakes are easy to make. The ultrawide camera isn’t all that horrible, but it’s not anywhere close to the OnePlus 10 Pro’s in terms of quality.
Advertisement We definitely prefer the colors that OnePlus’ flagship offers, so even the main camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro performs better. Don’t get me wrong, the OnePlus 10T’s main camera is nice, but it’s not as fantastic as the one on the OnePlus 10 Pro. The photographs indeed appear different, but we’re not sure if that’s because of optimization, Hasselblad, or something else. When it comes to the main camera in low light, the OnePlus 10 Pro performs a little bit better. When it comes to low light, the other cameras are not even competitive; the OnePlus 10 Pro easily wins.
AUDIO On neither of these two phones will you find a 3.5mm headphone jack. That is not at all unexpected. However, you will discover stereo speakers. They really have a very similar sound, therefore OnePlus presumably utilized the same speakers on both devices. They definitely provide a well-balanced, fairly full tone. The vocals are audible and barely distorted. Although they aren’t the best, they are nonetheless adequate. By the way, they both have Bluetooth 5.2, which is advantageous of course.
