The year 2019 saw OnePlus entering a head-on competition with other manufacturers in making flagship phones. Its two offers are OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro.
While the 7T Pro is not exactly a huge leap from the 7 Pro, it is still the best smartphone the company has to offer right now, and a solid competitor of Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
Samsung’s smartphone is a bit older, but it is still one of the best phones anyone can find on the market. To help you form a clearer idea of which one is better, we have made the compare Oneplus 7 pro vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, read on to find out:
OnePlus 7T Pro features a 6.67-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3120, aspect ratio of 19.5:9, and 516 pixels per inch. Other specs include a 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and Fluid AMOLED.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus sports 6.4-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 3040, an aspect ratio of 19:9, and 522 pixels per inch. It also supports HDR10+, Dynamic AMOLED, but the refresh rate is just 60Hz.
The refresh rate is what differentiates the OnePlus 7T Pro when it comes to display. So basically, you should feel that interactions and animations are a bit faster on this phone. The compromise here is that the battery will drain faster. However, if you like, you can still switch the rate back to 60Hz.
Samsung has the edge in the visual quality of the display to any other smartphone on the market; its Galaxy S10 Plus is no exception. So one point for Samsung’s smartphone in this respect.
There are lots of similarities in the overall look of the OnePlus 7T Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus. They both have glass backs, curved screens, and metal frames.
The most noticeable difference is arguably the all-screen display of OnePlus 7T. To eliminate the notch, OnePlus has opted for the pop-up mechanism to hide the selfie camera away when it is not in need. The Galaxy S10 Plus still has a punch-hole notch on the front. So if you love an uninterrupted screen, OnePlus will have a point here.
On the back, Samsung’s camera setup is laid out horizontally while that of OnePlus vertically.
There are some other minor differences like OnePlus 7T Pro is a bit heavier at 206g while the Galaxy S10 Plus is just 175g. Users have the choice to acquire the smartphone from Samsung in a wide range of colors, while with OnePlus, you only have Haze Blue.
Another feature that is worth noting is that the Galaxy S10 Plus has a water resistance rating, while OnePlus 7t does not.
Oneplus 7 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Camera
The two phones both have a triple camera setup on the back with that of OnePlus 7T Pro making up of a 48MP f/1.6 primary camera, a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide lens with 117-degree field of view, and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto lens. You will have OIS (optical image stabilization) on the telephoto and main lens.
With the smartphone from OnePlus, you will have more optical zoom while that of Samsung will offer you a wider field of view. On paper, there is not much of a disparity with video capacity. Both of them can record 4K videos at 60fps, 1080p video at 240fps, and 720p at 960fps for slow motion.
The selfie camera is where you will find a broader difference. OnePlus 7T Pro features a 16MP f/2.0 lens on the front while that of Samsung sports an 8MP f/2.2 depth sensor and a 10MP f/1.9 main lens. On paper, Samsung’s phone seems to be more superior, but we will have to wait and see how they perform in real life.
Specs And Features
Under the hood, OnePlus 7T Pro runs on the high-end Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, RAM of 8GB, and onboard storage of 256GB. However, there is no microSD card slot to be found.
Galaxy S10 Plus is powered by either Exynos 9820 chipset in most markets or Snapdragon 855 chipset in the USA. They are both capable but still have to give in to that of OnePlus. With Samsung, users have the choice to acquire the phone with RAM of either 8GB or 12GB, and inbuilt storage of 128GB, 512GB, or 1TB, with a microSD card slot.
So Samsung wins when it comes to storage but loses to OnePlus regarding processing power.
For security, both the two phones have an in-display fingerprint scanner. OnePlus 7T Pro runs on Android 10 while the Galaxy S10 Plus still has Android 9.
Battery: Oneplus 7 Pro vs Galaxy S10 Plus
Galaxy S10 Plus draws power from a 4,100mAh battery while that of OnePlus 7T Pro is 4,085mAh. So they are similar in battery capacity. With the Warp Charge 30T technology, OnePlus 7T Pro definitely charges faster than the Galaxy S10 Plus.
However, the smartphone from Samsung supports wireless charging, and it can power up other compatible devices. OnePlus’s phone does not have this ability.
In reality, the Galaxy S10 Plus can last over one day. We have not had the chance to test the 7T Pro, but since most users assume that it should perform similarly to OnePlus 7 Pro, we can have an early conclusion that the 7T Pro will probably be the winner here.
Price And Availability
In India, OnePlus 7T Pro is priced at Rs. 53,999, while a Galaxy S10 Plus will set you back Rs. 69,500.
Overall, both of these phones are high-end offers with OnePlus 7T Pro comes equipped with an all-screen display, higher refresh rate, a more capable chipset, and faster charging. On the other hand, you will have more RAM, water-resistance rating, an extra front-facing camera, and wireless charging with the Galaxy S10 Plus.
The S10 Plus has a larger price tag, but the margin is not too big to handle. So the decision of which one to but will come down to deciding what features you like best.
