DESIGN

OnePlus 8 Pro

With the oneplus 8 pro, the company introduces a couple of new changes to its brand identity. The phone itself doesn’t look very different from the oneplus 7 pro but there are some changes in its design. It does feel different in the hand since the tapered edges feel rounder than the seven pro’s but in a good way.

The camera setup is both wider and longer. The camera bump does stick out much more than before because of that new camera sensor, so if you use this on a table you’ll definitely be rocking and rolling back and forth. The selfie camera is now in a punch hole, so it doesn’t pop up as it did on the oneplus 7 pro. The phone is now IP68 certified for water resistance.

Realme X50 Pro

The Realme X50 Pro has a simple but pleasing design. There is Gorilla Glass 5 front and back and a seamless design from back glass to aluminum frame. It has a matte finish on the back glass which makes the entire phone nicer to hold. It feels almost like metal when it’s cold and more importantly it makes the brick better, so the X50 pro feels secure in the hand.

Aside from that, on the front you’ll find thin bezels all around, a pill shaped hole punch and the fastest fingerprint reader available at the moment. It’s actually the same one as on the oneplus 7T.

DISPLAY

OnePlus 8 Pro

The screen on the oneplus 8 pro is a 6.78 inch AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution. This makes it exactly as wide as the 7 pro but just a little bit taller.

This is the brightest display of any oneplus phone reaching a max of 888 nits in our tests. It’s honestly one of the brightest displays I’ve ever used and I’ve never had an issue trying to use the 8 pro on a bright day.

This display is also of the 120 Hertz. System animations and supported games look silky smooth and even if you’re coming from the oneplus 7 pro’s 90 Hertz screen, there’s still a noticeable difference.

It’s not just bright and fast but the 8 pro screen has great color accuracy and a number of color profiles to choose from as well.

It supports both DCIP3 and sRGB as well and I can honestly say this is one of the best screens I’ve used on a phone.

Realme X50 Pro

The 6.4 inch screen itself is a very nice AMOLED with a 90 Hertz refresh rate that supports HDR 10+, you can change it of course and choose between 60 Hertz and 90 Hertz or auto select which allows the phone to optimize it for battery life.

The display has good brightness for an OLED screen, 635 nits in auto mode and 525 in manual. As far as colors go accuracy is good.

AUDIO

OnePlus 8 Pro

Oneplus 8 pro has stereo speakers which are plenty loud. If you want to use wired headphones though, make sure you have an adapter since there isn’t one included in the box.

Realme X50 Pro

The X50 Pro has a stereo speaker setup. There’s a downward firing speaker on the bottom and a razor-thin earpiece that doubles as a second channel on the top bezel. It scored a very good rating in terms of loudness and it was even better in terms of quality with an excellent rating. Both bass and treble are loud and clear.

SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE

OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus 8 Pro runs oxygen OS 10.5 which isn’t a big jump from the previous version. It brings support for more apps in the dark theme and some slightly new system icons. But otherwise it’s pretty much exactly what I saw on the 7 Pro and the 7T. A lightly customized stock Android skin that’s very fast and super responsive.

Oneplus did promise that it would bring an always-on display option but it’s still being worked on and should come with a future update. It goes without saying that this will obviously have a slight impact on battery life.

Inside there’s the latest snapdragon 865 chipset paired with the X55 5G modem. I have no issues while playing PUBG at max settings. Overall, the performance on this device is great.

Realme X50 Pro

The Realme X50 Pro 5G is one of the first phones with a snapdragon 865 chipset. It features Qualcomm’s X55 modem which adds full 5g connectivity. The phone also has a five-dimensional cooling system. Performance, it was flagship level and it matched other phones with this chipset. We also didn’t notice I mean excess heat under.

As far as software goes, the X50 Pro supports Android 10 with realme UI on top. It’s a new take on color OS and it definitely delivered. The launcher looks more like vanilla Android and there’s a clutter free app tour available. There are some powerful tools and options and settings but you can just leave the phone as is and enjoy a hassle-free Android experience. There are also quite a few visual customization options available like different icon packs, and the always-on screen.

BATTERY

OnePlus 8 Pro

The oneplus 8 pro has a 4510 mAh battery which isn’t as beefy as we’ve seen on other phones like the galaxy S20 ultra but it did do well enough in our endurance tests. It actually scored just as well as a 7 pro did last year with 82 hours overall with the default 120 Hertz refresh rate. And an overall score of 91 hours was achieved when the screen was set to the standard 60 Hertz.

What does make it worthwhile though is warped charge which is very fast and the charger brought the phone to 63 percent in half an hour. And if you decide to spend $69, you can get a 50 percent charge in the 30 minutes using the warp charge 30 wireless charger. The 8 pro can also share its charge with other phones or accessories.

Realme X50 Pro

The realme has a 4200 mAh battery and it scored 90 hours in our endurance tests. This was a very good score but it was actually a little lower than we expected considering the battery size. This is realme first phone to support the 65 watt super dart charge. It gets the phone’s battery from flat up to 95% in 30 minutes. It has no wireless charging.

CAMERA

OnePlus 8 Pro

The camera is one of the biggest areas of improvement over the oneplus 7 pro. The main sensor is a sony IMX689 and it has 40% larger pixels than the main camera on the 7 pro which translates to better low-light performance and improve resolve details. This new sensor uses all pixel omnidirectional autofocus which makes focusing quicker and more accurate even in low-light.

The ultra wide camera now has the same sensor as the main cameras had on the 7 pro and the 7T, so you can take full resolution ultra wide shots and since it has autofocus, it doubles as a macro camera.

Then there’s the 8 megapixel telephoto camera which is the same as it was on the 7 pro, same sensor, same aperture, no change there.

The fourth camera is something that oneplus calls its color filter camera and it’s a quirky one.

Realme X50 Pro

If you take a look at the back of the phone. You’ll see a pretty standard quad camera setup. It has a 64 megapixel primary shooter with a quad bayer filter and an F/1.8 aperture.

There’s also a 12 megapixel telephoto with 2x zoom, ann 8 megapixel ultra wide, and a 2 megapixel depth sensor for portraits.

Overall camera is good but not good as Oneplus 8 Pro.

WHICH ONE YOU SHOULD BUY?

It depends on your choice and budget. If budget doesn’t matter you then you should go for OnePlus 8 Pro because it has better display, better camera, and design as well. But if you want to save some bucks and want flagship level performance then I will recommend you to go for Realme X50 Pro.
