Design

Aesthetics have always been the strong point of Honor flagships and this doesn’t change with the Honor 10. It comes with a stunning reflective glass back which is also available in gradient colors. OnePlus 6 has a glass back as well and it is very elegant, but it is not as attractive and unique as the one of Honor 10. But on the other hand, note that OP6 has some sort of protection which makes it splash resistant, so we can define it as a flagship with a better build quality. If we had to choose a device by basing on the aesthetics, we would pick Honor 10 for its original design and its smaller dimensions.

 

Display

OnePlus 6 definitely has a more interesting display than its opponent. It sports an Optic AMOLED panel with sRGB and DCI-P3 support, with a higher size (6.28 inches) and also Gorilla Glass 5 protection. This display is able to show stunning color and very deep blacks. Honor 10 has just a classic IPS FHD+ display and there is nothing special in terms of viewing quality. So we prefer OnePlus 6 for multimedia and viewing quality.

 

Hardware/Software

We still didn’t have the chance to test it thoroughly, but we believe that OnePlus 6 will not only provide better performance than the Honor 10, but it will also be one of the fastest and smoothest smartphones in the market. It comes with a higher-end SoC and up to 8 GB RAM and, even though Honor 10 has flagship-level components too, there should be a noticeable difference in performance, at least in the most demanding scenarios such as gaming and multi-tasking. Thanks to EMUI, Honor 10 has more features on the software side and it is more comfortable to use. But OnePlus 6 wins when it comes to hardware and performance.

 

Camera

Both OnePlus and Huawei made huge steps forward at improving the cameras of its flagships. These handsets can capture stunning photos and awesome videos, with a high level of detail even in less suitable conditions. We are going to prefer OnePlus 6 as it sports OIS and it can record 4K videos at 60 fps, but Honor 10 remains an amazing camera phone for both normal photos and selfies thanks to its 24 MP front snapper.

 

Battery

OnePlus 6 and Honor 10 have a 3300 mAh and a 3400 mAh battery, respectively. Both the batteries can last one day of normal use and the difference in battery life between them is not very noticeable. Both are well-optimized, but due to its AMOLED display, OnePlus 6 should last a bit more in several scenarios.

 

Price

Prices depend on the region. There are zones in which OnePlus 6 is much more expensive than Honor 10 and zones such as India where there is just a $20 difference (Rs. 32999). In the global market, Honor 10 has been launched for just €399/$467, while OnePlus 6 starts from €519/$529 (Rs. 34999 in India). OnePlus 6 wins the battle, so we would get it if we find these two handsets at around the same price like in India, but Honor 10 has a higher value for money in the global market.
