The iPhone X is one of the best-released smartphones till now even though it was released in October 2017. This device is still in the competition with the other smartphones released in the year 2018. Some of the good camera competitors smartphones released this year like Huawei P20 Pro with triple lens camera and OnePlus 6 with the dual camera set up, whereas Samsung S9 with the dual camera set up as well. The OnePlus 6 released in May 2018 but the rivalry with iPhone X is going on. The camera battle is spot on as the new iPhone of 2018 and Samsung S10 of 2019 are expected to be released with the triple lens camera setup. The most beloved and useful feature of the smartphone nowadays is the camera.
The focus of the entire smartphone industry big brands is now shifted towards to improve the smartphone camera day by day so that customers have the best experience to capture their memories. The difference in price between iPhone X and OnePlus 6 is almost half but whether the performance has the difference or not can be discussed later but the camera performance is discussed in depth here. It is no doubt that OnePlus 6 gives premium features in the best prices in the market as it is indeed a flagship killer.
The iPhone X has the dual cameras in the primary camera setup; the iPhone has 12MP camera + 12MP camera. The OnePlus 6 also has the dual primary camera set up of 16MP and 20MP. The number of pixels here of OnePlus 6 may sound high here but there are other various aspects which need to compare. The aperture of iPhone X is f/1.8 and f/2.4 whereas the OnePlus 6 aperture is f/1.7 and f/1.7. The digital zoom of both brand cameras is 10 xs. The front camera of iPhone X is 7MP with f/2.2and the OnePlus 6 front camera is 16MP with f/2.0 aperture. The features speak that OnePlus 6 is the great competition for iPhone X in camera war. But the actual usage of pictures capture can truly tell that what the truth is.
Both of the smartphones were placed side by side but it feels like that the different angle is being used because OnePlus 6 has the wider lens. The pictures of iPhone X has warmer colors and are brighter with lots of colors whereas, the OnePlus 6 pictures in comparison of iPhone X looks quite fainted color and dull. But on the other hand, the next picture shot gives same warmers effects and tones from iPhone X camera whereas the actual weather condition was dry which was perfectly captured by the OnePlus 6.
The OnePlus 6 also have some other options to work on the temperature and focus like ISO, focus, and color temperature. To avail these options in iPhone X there is a third party app which needs to be downloaded for extra camera options. The overall remarks here is that iPhone X camera gives best general shots but for more options and control OnePlus 6 is good.
The thing for the portrait picture is here that iPhone X has a telephoto lens which gives a quite narrow view. This doesn’t mean the picture is not perfect. It is perfect but the picture is clicked close with fine details in this mode. The OnePlus 6 has a 20MP lens which is fully dedicated for the portraits. It has the wider shot frame and captures great details by blurring up the background. This is not just only to capture the face but the whole subject can be captured neatly.
Overall the OnePlus 6 wider portrait mode gives more in the picture and blurring the background instantly focus on the subject, but iPhone X has a better focus on faces and more prominent pictures. Both of the smartphones gives best portraits it's further dependent on the user choice that he chooses face focus or wider angle.
The selfie camera of both the smartphones offer portrait mode for a selfie as well. The iPhone X portrait mode makes the background blur which can either blur the second person in the selfie as well. Whereas the blur effect on OnePlus 6 selfie camera is more sharp and clear and doesn’t blur the person next in the selfie.
Still, the warmer tone of iPhone X camera gives pleasant colors in 7MP camera whereas, OnePlus 6 16MP camera is sharper but dry. The one plus point in OnePlus 6 is that the selfie picture doesn’t flip and it is exactly the mirror image of what captured. Here because of a blur, the iPhone X lacks behind and OnePlus 6 wins.
In low light, both of the smartphones produce some great photos, some of the shots of iPhone X are great and some of the shots from OnePlus 6 are great. It can be said that the dark night lighting and angle of capturing the picture can make the difference. The iPhone X still wins here because of its video quality in the low light.
To capture the pictures from the distance the zoom is the best option. The zoom of iPhone X has clear and crisp photos and it captures more details with the magnification whereas, the OnePlus 6 on the magnification gives a good shot but not with the depth like iPhone X. The video quality on zooming iPhone X is much better than the OnePlus 6. The straight winner here is iPhone X.
The video mode is the actual revealing mode of the camera quality in these smartphones. The OnePlus 6 video quality is not as great as iPhone X. the OnePlus 6 videos has dull quality and contrast. It also shows some shake. Whereas, iPhone X video is indeed clear and neat without any shaking. The slow-motion movie in iPhone X is prominent and smooth but OnePlus 6 has more drama in the slow-motion.
The low light videography in iPhone X is the best as it more sharply whereas, OnePlus 6 in low light is washed out. The voice capture on video by iPhone X is much clear and better than OnePlus 6. While on zoom the iPhone X has the telephoto lens which captures the video much clear whereas the zoom of OnePlus 6 in the video is not as great as it uses digital zoom. The clear winner here is the iPhone X.
The iPhone X is still in comparison with all the other rivalry brands as the smartphone was released in 2018 has tried to beat the iPhone X camera by putting up the camera game high. The OnePlus 6 whereas, given the tough competition to other brands as it has all the high-end features in less than 50 percent of the iPhone X price. The price of iPhone X in Dubai, UAE is around 4000AED and the price of OnePlus 6 in Dubai, UAE is around 2000 AED.
The iPhone X has won with the high margin as it has the best camera results in all of the above categories and plays well with the colors. The videos quality of iPhoneX is also much better than OnePlus 6. Whereas, OnePlus 6 gives good quality photos in this price and has wider camera frame which works well.
