 OnePlus 5 Vs Nokia 8 Vs Mi Mix 2 Vs Oppo F3 Plus Vs Honor 8 Pro- Affordable Flagships Comparison

OnePlus and Xiaomi have been successful in doing the groundwork for strengthening their presence in the Indian market. Not only did they release smartphones; also managed to grab everybody’s attention and create a fan following.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Vs OnePlus 5 Compared

Xiaomi focused on catering to the entry segment by offering smartphones with above average specs at affordable price.

Albeit, Oneplus had their eye set on the flagship category with a mid-range price tag. They too offered excellent value for money proposition for the buyers, and went on to become the “Most trusted phone brand in India.”

Let’s do an in-depth comparison of the Xiaomi Mi Mix2 and the Oneplus 5 to find out which one triumph.

OnePlus 5 Vs Xiaomi MI Mix 2 – Best Flagship Killer?

Price

The OnePlus 5 is priced at Rs. 32,999 for the 64 GB and 6 GB RAM version; the 8 GB RAM / 128 GB storage version comes with a price tag of Rs. 37,999.

On the other hand, the Mi Mix 2 has a price tag of Rs. 35,999, and comes with 6 GB of Ram along with 128 GB of internal storage.

The Mi Mix 2 is priced cleverly between both the OnePlus 5 models, making it cheaper compared to the higher variant of OnePlus 5. Also, there are Nokia 8 and LG G6 which are top-selling in the sub 40k price offering a compelling proposition.

Design

OnePlus 5

OnePlus has slightly changed the design of the phone when compared to the OnePlus 3T. It shed only 0.1mm thickness and is almost identical to the last iteration.

The “horizon line” makes the phone look thin.

The overall design is a copy of Apple iPhone 7 Plus and is also very similar to the Oppo R11 Plus.

The back still rocks the dependable, smooth aluminum body; the front has seen a minimal change.

Oneplus 5 has thick top and bottom bezels that make it look so last gen compared to the futuristic Mi Mix 2.

The buttons placement and the headphone jack remain where they were in the last iteration.

Sadly, OnePlus was unable to deliver an 18:9 display ratio, unlike the Mi Mix 2.

As confirmed by the company, they have the resources of doing it in next flagship. (Oneplus 5T)

Mi Mix 2

While the bezel-less phones might’ve become a trend this year; it was Xiaomi who is given credit to have the first Bezel-less phone: Mi Mix.

The Mi Mix was a concept phone and hence was only released in China. This time they’ve decided to have a global launch with their second iteration.

The Mi Mix 2 looks almost similar to Mi Mix, with the ceramic back no bezels at the front side.

The selfie camera is placed in the bottom right corner, making the top part of display truely bezel-less.

Notably, Xiaomi has used a darker glass for the front camera lens to make it less visible.

There are few design changes, besides the Mi Mix 2 uses a standard earpiece in place of the “cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic earpiece” used in Mi Mix.

Also, the smartphone is smaller and comfortable to hold compared to the original Mi Mix that came with a 6.4 Inch Display.

Display

OnePlus 5

Many OEMs have entered the bezel-less display race; OnePlus has stuck to its guns and has gone with the standard 16:9 display ratio. They’ve also retained the 5.5 inches Full HD Optic AMOLED display, also used in the OnePlus 3T.

However, this time the side bezels are almost absent, Oneplus 5 looks better than its predecessors.

Unfortunately, there’s a jelly effect visible on screen when scrolling through pages or apps.

Accidentally, OnePlus has placed the display upside down causing the display to have this flaw.

Mi Mix 2

Xiaomi Mi Mix is a design innovation, paving the path for bezel-less phones like the iPhone X and the Google Pixel XL 2.

Most of the OEMs have joined the bandwagon and are working on the 18:9 aspect ratio display devices.

Notably, the 6-inch FHD+ display (2160*1080 pixels) with 18:9 aspect ratio makes Mi Mix 2 look much more appealing than the OnePlus 5.

Processing power

Both the smartphones share similar specifications and come with the top of the line hardware.

The phones are driven by Qualcomm’s most powerful Snapdragon 835 SOC, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM.

Xiaomi has the upper hand since it supports expandable storage which is missing on the Oneplus 5.

Performance is flawless for both the phones, you won’t notice any lag on this top tier hardware.

Camera

Optics have become most crucial part of the smartphone line up these days. The smartphone camera is the deciding factor for many buyers, especially in the premium segment.

OnePlus 5

OnePlus smartphones have always delivered the best performance compared to the expensive competitors. However, they fall behind in the optics department.

OnePlus 5 Launched With Dual Rear Camera 8 GB RAM SD 835

This time OnePlus has changed their focus and worked on the camera section.

The all-new OP5 now features dual 16MP + 20MP rear sensors; making it currently the highest megapixel camera on any smartphone.

The 16 MP, f/1.7 is the primary camera, offering stellar picture clarity with the help of EIS.

The stabilization also helps in capturing more detailed shots compared to its predecessors that came with f/2.0 aperture.

The second 20MP, f/2.4 telephoto lens helps in 2x, lossless optical zoom. Also, the user can further zoom in 10x with digit zoom if they want to click distant subjects.

It’s similar set-up found on the iPhone 7 Plus, although there’s one thing where iPhone might have the upper hand.

The primary camera in the 7 Plus sports OIS, which is sadly missing in OP5.

The OnePlus 5 has a 16 MP selfie camera which is similar to the OnePlus 3T.

To sum up, the camera clicks much better pictures than 3T and provides the best image quality compared to any Oneplus phone ever made.

Mi Mix 2

When Xiaomi released their Mi 6 this year with the dual camera set-up, I had a strong intuition that the new Mi Mix 2 will also sport a similar camera.

To my surprise, they went with the traditional  12 MP single sensor camera with 4-axis OIS.

The Mi Mix 2 comes with a humble 5 Megapixel front selfie camera, seems far behind compared to the 16 MP selfie camera on the Oneplus 5.Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 image

Xiaomi isn’t marketing Mi Mix 2 as a camera-centric phone but as a device with an incredible display.

Software

OnePlus 5

It comes with Android N v7.1.1 out of the box. Moreover, offers a smooth near stock experience with many useful features which are smartly hidden in the settings and doesn’t always bother the users.

Also, the rigorous attention to software updates and security patches keeps the OnePlus flagship in the league of high-end phones from Samsung and Google.

The OS is not too bland and not skin heavy, a perfect combination of features, simplicity, and optimizations, offering a delightful user experience.

Additionally, the OnePlus 5 will get the Android 8.0 Oreo update in next couple of months making the experience even better.

Mi Mix 2

Xiaomi is known for its MIUI skin, offering Geo-location based customizations.

Its nowhere near stock Android, but MIUI has a cult following. Many people like MIUI more than the stock Android experience.

MIUI is feature loaded and can take a while for users to become acquainted.

Xiaomi optimizes the MIUI for faster App opening and lag-free usage.

However, Xiaomi doesn’t have a flawless track record when it comes to pushing out updates or even security patches.

Hence, if one can settle for this sacrifice; the overall experience is enjoyable on the smartphone for every age group.

Honorable mentions – Battery Life and Other Features

The OP5 comes with 3300 mAh battery while the Mi Mix 2 offers slightly larger 3400 mAh battery.

Both the smartphones sport USB type-C port and can deliver fast charging speeds.

They feature Dual SIM capability along with all the necessary sensors.

Noticeably, Xiaomi and OnePlus both have increased their number of compatible cellular network bands that in return also helps them to be a global smartphone.

Conclusion

OnePlus 5 and MI Mix 2 both are super fast smartphones and are available for an aggressive price $600 (Rs 35,000) for their top variants.

The OnePlus 5 offers excellent near stock Android Experience, faster updates, better Dual camera and robust design.

Choice is tough – Pick the features which you want more On Your Nxt Phone

On the other hand, Mi Mix 2 stands out with a custom MiUi experience, a more catchy and head-turning design, incredible display to watch movies and videos.

I think both the phones have own merits and shortfalls, and you will have to pick one over the other based on what you want regarding camera, software experience or a bezel-free display.

My own priorities are mostly camera and a stock Android experience, so OnePlus is a better choice for me, though Mi Mix 2 is a phone which can definitely make your co-workers envious.

Moreover, the Bothie feature uses front and rear camera simultaneously. You can even live stream videos using this feature, as the phone can record and stream both rear and front camera footage simultaneously. 

The advantage of the OnePlus Dual camera system is that you can take better portrait shots with a more natural background blur compared to the Nokia 8 which also comes with a portrait mode but is not as good as OnePlus.

In terms of general photography, both the cameras are good, and neither of these have a clear advantage over the other. However, the Nokia 8 seems to be better for rear camera shots.

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro measures just 6.97 mm while the Oneplus 5 measures weigh just a little more 7.25 mm.

Compare OnePlus 5 VS Huawei Honor 8 Pro

The Oneplus 5 has a more curved body compared to the Huawei Honor 8 Pro and the fingerprint scanner is also at the front side. While the Honor 8 Pro is slightly bigger and has the fingerprint scanner at the back of the device. I prefer lightweight phones so my pick will be the Oneplus 5 as far as the weight and ease of use go.

The Dual camera placement is similar in both the mobiles and is vertically aligned like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

Both the devices come with exquisite design and feel fantastic in Hand.

DISPLAY 

OnePlus 5 is equipped with 5.inches  FULL HD AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080p resolution and 401 PPI. On the side, Honor 8 Pro has a 5.7-inch display with 2560 x 1440p resolution and 515 PPI. OnePlus 5 comes with Gorilla 5 and Honor 8 Pro has Gorilla Glass 3 Protection. The display on the Honor 8 PRO is superior to the One Plus 5 and gives it an edge in this round.

The Honor 8 pro has a slightly larger screen when compared to the Oneplus 5 and also feels a little bigger and slightly bulkier while working with a single hand.

OnePlus 5 weighs 153 grams and it has 7.25 mm thickness. On the other hand, Honor 8 Pro has 184 grams of weight and is 6.97 mm thick. But blame the large battery on the Honor 8 Pro for the extra weight.

PROCESSOR AND RAM 

OnePlus 5 is armed with 64 bit 2.45 GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Processor with Adreno 540 GPU. And Honor 8 Pro is powered by 2.4 GHz Octa-Core HiSilicon Kirin 960 Processor with Mali-G71 MP8 GPU. Both the smartphones have 6 GB of RAM.

But in real life and gaming performance both the mobiles offer buttery smooth performance and it is difficult to pick one over the other based on real-life performance, Though for benchmark scores the OnePlus 5 scores much higher in the Antutu as well as the geek benchmark scores.

If we have to pick the winning horse here it is going to be the Oneplus 5.

SOFTWARE AND STORAGE 

OnePlus 5 runs Android 7.1.1 Android Nougat based on Oxygen OS with near stock experience while Honor 8 Pro runs Android 7.0 Nougat based on Emotion 5.1 UI. The EMUI offers a richer experience and has lots of features. While if you love the stock android look the Oxygen OS is your best bet.

OnePlus 5 comes with 64 GB internal storage which cannot be further expanded.

So you need more storage the Honor 8 Pro has you covered unless you are going with the 128 GB /8 GB RAM OnePlus 5 variant.

CAMERA

This is a tough one and difficult to pick one over the other, but on paper, the Oneplus 5 wins the mega pixel war with ease. OnePlus 5 sports Dual Rear Camera (16 MP + 20 MP) with EIS i.e. Electrical Image Stabilization and it has 16 MP Front selfie Camera. There is one telephoto lens and the other one is a standard lens.

On the other hand, Honor Pro 8 also comes with Dual Rear Camera setup (12 MP + 12 MP) with one monochrome lens and one RGB lens and 8 MP Front Camera for selfies. Both the smartphones have Dual LED Flash.

The Oneplus 5 has a slight advantage over the Honor 8 Pro camera through the Honor 8 Pro camera is more consistent while the Oneplus 5 camera on some shots can do great and others may have an unclear subject focus. The camera App and UI on the Huawei Honor 8 Pro looks richer and comes with tons of features and improve the overall experience of the user. A close call here but we give the vote to OnePlus 5.

BATTERY LIFE

OnePlus 5 packs 3300 mAh battery life while Honor 8 Pro is backed by a much larger 4000 mAh battery capacity. Both the smartphones have Non Removable battery and they also have Quick charging support, dash charging for the OnePlus 5 which is slightly faster to charge.

The Honor 8 Pro offers at least 15 to 20% more in terms of battery life and clearly a winner in the battery life contest. Though it is a bit bulkier compared to the OnePlus 5.

Verdict – Compare OnePlus 5 VS Huawei Honor 8 Pro – The Top Choice

Both are wonderful phones and it is a very tight contest. It is really very difficult to pick out a clear winner here.

OnePlus 5 If you wish to have a slightly better Camera, more performance, stock android Nougat experience and a device which is very lightweight and easy to use with one hand the OnePlus 5 is the ideal choice.

Honor 8 Pro – Whereas if you want to watch the season 7 of Game of Thrones on a bigger and better display and need more storage to keep all your videos and images, and a better battery backup the Honor 8 Pro is the top Choice.

Also, It shares the same f/1.7 aperture and has Dual Selfie Camera (16 MP + 8 MP) for clicking selfies with bokeh effect.  If you are more into taking selfies than Oppo F3 Plus is an exciting option, for others, the Dual rear camera on the OnePlus 5 may be more enticing.
