So you had your eye on the rather lovely OnePlus 3T, and then Huawei went and announced the P10 Plus, and now you're all confused again. Which phone's better?
They're both phablet-sized Android flagships with 6 gigs of RAM, how do you choose? Does the OnePlus's £399 price tag mean it's not as good a phone as the £679.99 P10 Plus, or should you be thinking more about specs than price?
Luckily, we've done all the hard work for you, so all you have to do is read on. Huawei P10 Plus vs OnePlus 3T: let's go head to head.
Huawei P10 Plus vs OnePlus 3T: Handset design
P10 Plus: 153.5 x 74.2 x 6.98, 165g
OnePlus 3T: 152.7 x 74.7 x 7.4mm, 158g
These are both very stylish phones. The Huawei has more of an iPhone look about it, whereas the OnePlus looks more like an HTC - although HTCs also look kinda like iPhones these days. They both look like smartphones, how about that?
Seriously though, both phones have the premium look and feel of a flagship, with their full metal jackets and capacious displays. The P10 comes in a rainbow of colours (seriously, Huawei really pushed the boat out), while the 3T is only available in Gunmetal, Soft Gold, and a limited-edition black - although there are plenty of official cases to choose from.
As you'd expect, both Android flagships have USB charging ports on the bottom edge, alongside 3.5mm headphone jacks and a single speaker grille. Both power keys are on the right edge, although the P10's is much nicer: it's textured to make it easier to find, and edged in red on the black phone for a stylish twist. On the P10, the volume rocker is just above, whereas on the OnePlus it's over on the left side - where you'll find the P10's sim tray. The 3T also offers an iPhone-style Do Not Disturb switch, which, unlike the power key, is textured.
Both the 3T and P10 Plus have an oval fingerprint sensor/home key under the screen, though neither one presses in. However, the P10's is a little frustrating: for reasons I will never understand, Huawei gives you the option of either using it as a fingerprint sensor with software on-screen nav buttons, or to use the home key as a nav key itself - but not in the way you'd expect. Instead of one tap to go home, it's one tap to go back (why?), long press to go home (surely should be recent apps?) and a weird swipe across the pad to see apps. This was a bad decision, but easily fixed with software - I hope they do.
Winner: OnePlus 3T
OnePlus 3T vs Huawei P10 Plus: Display
P10 Plus: 5.5-in, quad HD (2560x1440), 540ppi
OnePlus 3T: 5.5-in, full HD (1920x1080), 401ppi
Both phones rock the 5.5-inch display, the ideal size for roomy web browsing while still being able to hold it with one hand. Kinda. But the Huawei phone has considerably higher resolution with far more pixels per inch.
Both screens are bright and beautiful, but if you're a display enthusiast (or you want to use a headset like Google Cardboard), there's only one choice: the P10 Plus.
Winner: Huawei P10 Plus.
Huawei P10 Plus vs OnePlus 3T: Hardware
P10 Plus: Kirin 960 octa-core CPU (4x2.4 GHz, 2x1.8 GHz), 6GB RAM
OnePlus 3T: Snapdragon 821 quad-core CPU (2x2.35 GHz, 2x1.6 GHz), 6GB RAM
Considering the price difference between these two, there isn't as much of a hardware gap as you'd expect.
Here are the benchmarks:
Geekbench 4 multi-core CPU test: Huawei 5,123; OnePlus 4,321
AnTuTu total score: Huawei 137,350; OnePlus 161,596
PCMark Work 2.0: Huawei 6,199; OnePlus 5,641
Winner: Huawei P10 Plus.
