Huawei P40 Pro Plus and OnePlus 8 Pro which one is the king?

OnePlus has come a long way since the release of its first smartphone, the OnePlus One, in 2014. Brand awareness has grown significantly since then. A growth on which was modeled that of the selling price of OnePlus mobiles. The OnePlus 8 Pro reaches 1200USD in its most expensive version. It is therefore difficult to maintain the long-deserved status of "high-end killer". Now, OnePlus plays in the same court as the Samsung Galaxy S20, Huawei P40 Pro, iPhone 11, or Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.

On the other hand, The P40 Pro + smartphone is the third in the 2020 P edition range, but also Huawei's third 5G smartphone this year. This is the most efficient model of the Chinese firm, which deploys all its know-how in mobile photography. A smartphone is designed in the hope of being essential, even though Google services are absent.

 Offered at a price of 1,767USD Huawei's smartphone competes in the ultra-premium smartphone category, like the Sony Xperia 1 Mark 2 and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Huawei P40 Pro + is also a serious competitor to the Samsung. In this article, we will make a comparison between the OnePlus 8 Pro and P40 Pro Plus to see which one the king is.

 Design &Display.

    The identifying color of this generation of OnePlus is green. OnePlus 8 Pro has a matte satin finish and the back shell is made of glass. The profile is also in satin-finished metal and recalls the same color as the rear glass. It is a finish similar to that seen on some other top of the 2019/2020 range and that we appreciate it very much. It is pleasant to the touch and retains very little fingerprints.

On the other hand, the feeling of quality is equal if not superior to many recent top of the range. The physical buttons have an excellent click response and the rear camera, although protruding, is at least centered and this greatly reduces the annoyances when using it on a plane. The smartphone is not compact but still has ergonomic shapes that do not make everyday use complicated.

In addition, OnePlus 8 Pro is also waterproof according to the IP68 standard, making it the top-of-the-range smartphone that many were waiting for. At least on this front. With its 199 grams and then lighter than its predecessor.

 On the flip side, Huawei P40 Pro Plus comes with a glass front. Huawei swaps glass and aluminum for ceramic, both for the back and for the frame. In addition to giving a very nice look to the mobile, it offers much better protection against scratches. The P40 Pro Plus has an IP68 water and dust resistance.

 In addition, the smartphone has the same dimensions as the P40 Pro. The format is the same, only the weight changes. We, therefore, end up with a 226 g mobile (the same weight as the iPhone 11 Pro Max). A gain that we surely owe to the material used as well as to the presence of an additional photo module.

 The right edge accommodates the traditional volume control buttons as well as the ignition. On the lower one are placed the USB-C port as well as a speaker. The other slices are blank.

  As far as display is concerned, OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a 6.78 Fluid AMOLED display. It occupies 90.8 of the front of the device. OnePlus 8 Pro has a 1440 x 3168 resolution with 513 PPi. The screen also introduces an RGB sensor that allows for automatic tone adjustment of the display depending on your surroundings much like Apple's true tone on the iPhones. The device supports 120Hz whether you on FHD or QHD. But you will kill your battery in no time that is the real issue.

OnePlus 8 Pro supports a brand new feature which is MEMC. It stands for motion estimation and motion compensation. This feature will give you the chance to interpolate additional frames with the motion smoothness feature when watching videos. The device also supports HDR10 Plus.

The 120 Hz brings real comfort in use compared to 60 Hz, but compared to the 90 Hz of the OnePlus 8, the difference is a little less noticeable. Moreover, OnePlus allows you to switch to 60 Hz in the settings in order to save battery, but we would have liked to have an intermediate option for more choice.

As a bonus, the OnePlus 8 Pro offers a " pleasant tone " mode   that its little brother does not have in order to automatically adapt the colors of the screen to the ambient light. This is an equivalent to the "  true tone  " of the iPhone, rather discreet and pleasant.

Contrastingly, Huawei P40 Pro Plus comes with a 6.80 OLED display. It occupies 91.6% of the front of the device. The P40 Pro Plus has a 1200 x 2640 resolution with 441 PPi.  The device also supports HDR10. It also has support for the 90Hz refresh rate

   Operating System and Processor

 OnePlus 8 Pro is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. This powerful processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency and it also has a neural engine on board for AI-related tasks.

Meanwhile, Huawei P40 Pro Plus is powered by Kirin 990 5G. This powerful processor is built using a 7nm process for extreme power efficiency and it also has a neural engine on board for AI-related tasks.

   In the Geekbench test, the OnePlus 8 Pro scored 888 points for the single-core and 3239 for the multicores. While the P40 Pro Plus scored 877 for single-core and 2712 for multicores.

 According to the operating system,  we also know that it is one of the fastest brands to roll out its updates and we can therefore expect to receive Android 11 later this year.

It's always a pleasure to test a OnePlus smartphone for this reason. The software interface is more and more similar to that of Google Pixels, even integrating some features like instant captions when playing multimedia content, with a good layer of customization. You can change almost anything you want on OxygenOS, from the shape of the icons to the color of the theme, including the size of the application grid or the font used by the system. , accent color, or vibration intensity.

You can also filter the applications in your drawer by genre, or even hide them so that they do not appear there. Finally, the haptic feedback is well dosed everywhere on the surface of the device. OnePlus says it is “  11% more powerful and more realistic  ”. If this is something difficult to quantify, we will admit without the problem that the experience is very pleasant under the finger and that particular care has been taken to the whole.

Instead,   the Huawei Pro+ runs also on Android 10 with Huawei well-known EMUI 10.1 interface. This has some new features. Most notable is the arrival of a new intelligent personal assistant: Celia. When it works, this tool shows great responsiveness.

 Note the existence of Huawei Share which allows file sharing between Huawei smartphones without mobile data. This same function also allows you to access your phone's files from any PC or Mac connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

 Overall, the navigation is rather smooth and offers several customizations, including the ability to switch to dark mode, configure navigation by gestures or activate or not the application drawer. A sidebar of configurable shortcuts allows you to display the window of one app on top of another.

  Security and Ports

  On the security side, OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a fingerprint sensor.  It works perfectly well. It has no 3D face unlock. It also supports the same classical unlocking methods which any other smartphone has such as pattern and passcode.

In contrast, The P40 Pro Plus comes with a fingerprint sensor is placed under the display. The latter is also very fast and works as well - or even better - than the one on the P30 Pro (which was already excellent). It doesn't support 3D face recognition for unlocking the device. The P40 Pro Plus also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

  As of ports, the OnePlus device supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. The device comes with a USB-C port, which helps in quick charing. It  doesn't support a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Or rather, the Pro Plus phone supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. The device comes with a USB-C port, which helps in quick charging. The device has no 3.5mm headphone jack, like many of today's flagships which choose to say goodbye to such technology.

  Battery and Charging

 OnePlus 8 Pro comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4510mAh.  While Huawei P40 Pro Plus provides quite a powerful Li-Polymer 4200mAh battery. Both phones also offer fast charging.

 The autonomy is enough to get to the end of the day with average use by keeping the screen set at 120 Hz, but not in case of intense use. This is instead possible by lowering the refresh rate to 60 Hz. However, its aces in the hole are two: not only the usual 30W Warp Charge 30T but also now the 30W wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.

 On the other side of the coin, On the recharging side, we find fast charging at 40 W thanks to a dedicated power supply unit. Wireless charging goes from 27W to 40W as long as you have a compatible dock. Finally, reverse wireless charging remains at 27W, still one of the fastest on the market.

   OnePlus 8 Pro has a Quad-camera on the rear as clarified: 48Mp ( ultrawide with f\2.2),48MP( wide with f\1.8 it has OIS and Laser AF), 8MP( telephoto with f\2.4), and 5MP( depth with f\2.2). OnePlus has a 16MP wide front-facing camera with f\2.5 and Auto-HDR.

 On the contrast,  Huawei P40 Pro Plus has a Penta-camera on the rear as clarified: 40Mp ( utrawide with f\2.2),50MP( wide with f\1.9 it has OIS and Laser AF), 8MP( telephoto with f\2.4), and 8MP( periscope telephoto with f\4.4)  ToF 3D( depth sensor). The Pro Plus has a 32MP wide front-facing camera with f\2.2and RI ToF 3D depth sensor.

 By day, The Chinese mobile tends to smooth out flat areas but still retains a little detail. The colors are a bit overplayed too. The S20 Ultra is more neutral and renders more detail. OnePlus has decided to apply a strong treatment for a warm rendering, as we see a lot on social networks.

 Whereas, In broad daylight, Huawei's smartphone offers excellent shots. The image is detailed and the software processing hardly intervenes to smooth the scene. The colors are however a bit accentuated compared to what we see in the S20 Ultra. It's up to everyone to know the rendering they prefer for their photos.

At night, OnePlus' image processing is quite aggressive. Despite the larger photosites, the 8 Pro fails to achieve a great result from its 48-megapixel sensor. The smoothing is very pronounced and the accentuation struggles to save the furniture. The S20 Ultra shot is a little less well-exposed overall, but retains a lot more detail.

 Reversing it, the the P40 Pro + goes higher in sensitivity than its opponent (ISO 1600). In fact, the image is better exposed but loses a little in precision. The S20 Ultra is satisfied with ISO 400 to preserve the details of the scene as much as possible.

The ultra-wide-angle  has a 48-megapixel sensor. As for the main module, OnePlus chooses to capture snapshots in 12 megapixels by default. Unsurprisingly, during the day, the rendering is better in 48 Mpx. The details are more numerous and the contrasts are less forced.

Even taking into account its default mode, the OnePlus 8 Pro's ultra-wide-angle is one of the best around when it comes to image quality. It finally surpasses the Galaxy S20 Ultra by offering a more precise rendering during the day.

 On the flip side,  this P40 Pro Plus succeeds where the vast majority of phones fail. Although overexposed, the shot offers many details, so much so that we could compare it with some standard modules of other mobiles. We just regret a loss of quality at the lower-left corner, but nothing too bad.

At night, the OnePlus 8 Pro manages to retain a good amount of detail and ranks as one of the best students in our comparison.

On different choices, Huawei's flagship once again offers a rather impressive result. If the software processing smooths the image a lot and makes most of the details disappear, the objects that make up the scene are perfectly visible.

With only 8 megapixels, the sensor of this module gives the feeling of being the poor relation in photos. The result is not really extraordinary with a certain lack of sharpness. The colors seem to drool in places. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is once again much better in the daytime, despite a slightly longer focal length.

 Reversing it, the the Huawei P40 Pro Plus only allows an x3 zoom, while that of the Galaxy S20 Ultra can go up to x4. However, the result is rather convincing and the P40 Pro + module offers a very good result. The shot is correctly exposed, the details are present, and if there is any smoothing, it is imperceptible.

At night, the OnePlus 8 Pro switches back to its main sensor and uses digital zoom. Logically, the quality takes a hit, and we can only partially distinguish the shapes in the image. The 8 Pro can still be reassured since, in these conditions, even the S20 Ultra loses its footing.

 That said, as, on all smartphones, it remains unusable. Compared to the S20 Ultra, we see better exposure as well as no digital noise. However, the smoothing is far too strong to be exploitable.

The x10 periscope zoom of our P40 Pro + offers a fairly impressive accuracy. The scene is clear, correctly exposed, and teeming with detail. The colors certainly stand out a little too much, but this does not spoil the general appearance of the shot. Otherwise, it must be recognized that Huawei engineers have been able to provide amazing work on this module. Especially since it has a focal length of 240 mm, which is long and which, in normal times, does not rhyme with a good result.

  At night, the image of the P40 Pro + comes out completely black. The objects that make up our scene are perceptible, but the cliché cannot be used.

The front photo module and its 16-megapixel sensor provide good results. Selfies are on display well overall, and faces aren't overly smoothed. We find once again this warm rendering that will appeal to some.

Contrastingly, the photos of the P40 Pro Plus are of excellent quality, very detailed, and do not come up against the brightness.

The OnePlus 8 Pro's portrait mode applies gentle blur to the background. This has the advantage of making the bokeh relatively natural. On the other hand, the division of the subjects sometimes lacks precision, especially in the face of complex backgrounds. The "color filter" mode is very anecdotal, it can occasionally be used for Instagram fans.

Or rather, Huawei Pro's portrait mode is convincing. The clipping is very precise and the subjects stand out very well against the background. A feat that we owe in part to the ToF sensor.

 Finally, the OnePlus 8 Pro is capable of recording videos in 4K at the rate of 60 fps. A mode in which the manufacturer proposes to use its "super stabilizer" which does not offer the best result. For maximum fluidity of videos, it is better to settle for Full HD at 60 fps. In this definition, stabilization really becomes an undeniable asset.

While the P40 Pro + can shoot videos up to 4K at 60 frames per second. If it doesn't have an optical stabilizer (only electronic), the images are very stable, even if your handshakes a little too much.

 In short, we learn from it that the OnePlus 7T received the award for the best smartphone in 2020 according to the canceled MWC 2020. In addition, the 7T model burst into 4th place in the world in the premium smartphone segment. True, 4th place is a market share of slightly less than 2% :) Another interesting thing: OnePlus became number 3 in the US 5G smartphone market.

The result of the presentation was the announcement of two new devices called OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. We think it's clear that the 8 Pro is the flagship device for 2020. This device was stuffed with technology so much that the presenter of the presentation called this smartphone "ultra-premium".

Of course, in the 8 Pro, you will find the fastest of the Mohicans - Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, a sea of ​​memory - up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.0 internal memory, one of the largest AMOLED displays with QHD + resolution and support for 120 Hz ( don't forget about HDR10 +). Naturally, the device was "rewarded" with a 5th generation network, NFC technology, Bluetooth version 5.1 with aptX / aptXHD operation, and where without the ultra-modern Wi-Fi 6 standard.

And to make the OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone look even cooler in the eyes of potential buyers, the developers installed stereo speakers in the device and said hello to Huawei. Also, the 8 Pro can charge wirelessly and give its energy to another device. Oh yes, I forgot to say that the new product received IP68 protection. Round!

In short, you realized that before you is the real "killer" of all current flagship devices. With the price would not disappoint ... But, alas, a miracle did not happen: the cost starts from 1200USD.

Conversely, The P40 Pro + is quite simply a great smartphone. This is the most versatile photo phone on the market today, and the rest of its spec sheet is just as impressive as its photo capabilities. Unfortunately, like the P40 and P40 Pro, this Pro Plus model does not include Google Mobile Services, which makes its use complicated for those who are not used to doing without it. It is therefore difficult to advise him against the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra which is just as exemplary and offers Google services.  What do you think? Do you recommend these phones?
