Honor 8 pro or OnePlus 5

Honor 8 pro or OnePlus 5



Honor is a Sub Brand of smartphone company Huawei. Honor was launched by Huawei for budget smartphones but it is no longer a brand for budget smartphones. It also has mid range smartphones like Honor 8. But now it's time for Honor 8 pro. Honor 8 pro was launched back in april in UK. And now it has made it's presence in India too. Honor launched Honor 8 pro in India on 7th of July. The phone is priced at around $470 in India. At this price it is in a tough competition with OnePlus 5. So today we are gonna compare these smartphones and tell you which one is better between these two. 

Processing



Both these smartphones have great chipset, Honor 8 pro is powered by Hisilicon Kirin 960 chipset which is based on an octa core processor with four cortex A-73 cores cloaked at 2.4 GHz each and four cortex A-53 cores cloaked at 1.8 GHz each while OnePlus 5 is powered by famous Snapdragon 835 chipset which is based on an octa core processor with four kryo cores cloaked at 2.45 GHz each and other four kryo cores cloaked at 1.9 GHz each. Both these chipsets are really good and have very good performance. But if i have to pick one, i will definitely go with Snapdragon 835 which is better than Hisilicon Kirin 960. Snapdragon 835 is built on 10 nm architecture which is very power efficient. Snapdragon 835 has kryo cores which are definitely better than cortex A-73 and cortex A-53. So the performance will be better on OnePlus 5. But it doesn't mean that performance of Honor 8 pro will be bad, just OnePlus 5 have comparatively better performance. OnePlus 5 is powered by Adreno 540 GPU while Honor 8 pro is powered by Mali G71 MP8. Here also Adreno 540 is better than Mali G71 for graphic intensive tasks like playing heavy games.

Display



Honor 8  pro has 5.7 inch display size while OnePlus 5 has 5.5 inch display size. OnePlus 5 has an AMOLED type display while Honor 8 has IPS LCD type display. Honor 8 pro has a 2K resolution while OnePlus 5 has a full HD resolution. So here the clear winner is Honor 8 pro as it is having a 2K display which in all terms will be better than a full HD display. The major difference can be seen when using VR headsets with these smartphones. Honor 8 pro will have VR advantage due to it's 2K display.

Camera



Both these smartphones have dual rear camera setup. OnePlus 5 has a 16 MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture + 20 MP telephoto lens with f/2.6 aperture. Honor 8 pro is having dual 12 MP sensors with f/2.2 aperture. I think in good lightening conditions both these phones perform really well. But i think the problem will occur in low lightening conditions with the Honor 8 pro as it is having f/2.2 aperture lens while OnePlus 5 is having f/1.7 aperture lens which is wider and will allow more light to enter the camera lens. 
Honor 8 pro has OIS while OnePlus 5 is having EIS, so video recording will be more stable in Honor 8 pro's camera. Both these cameras can shoot videos upto 4K. Honor 8 pro is having a 8 MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture lens while OnePlus 5 is having 16 MP f/2.0 aperture secondary camera. According to me both these cameras will be good in clicking good pictures. But video recording with front camera will be more stable in OnePlus 5 as it is having EIS. 

Design



Honor 8 pro and OnePlus 5 both have premium designs. Both these smartphones have metallic designs. So the built quality of both these smartphones is really good. Honor 8 pro has 5.7 inch screen size while OnePlus 5 has 5.5 inch screen size. Honor 8 pro is just 7 mm thick while OnePlus 5 is 7.3 mm thick. Honor 8 pro appears to be slightly wider than OnePlus 5. So it will be slightly difficult to hold than OnePlus 5. OnePlus 5 has an alert slider on left side while Honor 8 pro isn't having. Both these smartphones are having 3.5 mm headphone jack. Honor 8 pro is having IR blaster while OnePlus 5 skimps on it. 

Battery



Honor 8 pro is having 4000 mah battery while OnePlus 5 is having 3300 mah battery. So battery life of Honor 8 pro will be definitely better than OnePlus 5. But both these phones can easily last up for a day. The charging speed will be better on OnePlus 5 as it is having dash charging which can charge OnePlus 5 fully just in one hour. Honor 8 pro also supports quick charging 3.0 but it isn't as fast as dash charging on OnePlus 5. Dash charging is the most fast charging technology in the smartphone market right now.


Internal storage and RAM


 Honor 8 pro comes with 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. OnePlus 5 comes in two varients one with 6GB of RAM, 64GB internal and the other with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage. Honor 8 pro has hybrid slot so memory can be expanded in it while in OnePlus 5 memory can't be expanded as it isn't having any slot for micro sd. Buying a 6GB of RAM varient of OnePlus 5 is enough, because 6GB is also ample amount of RAM.

Pricing


Honor 8 pro is priced at around $470 in India while in other countries it is priced around $620. So due to this pricing it is in direct competition with OnePlus 5 which is priced at around $500 for 6GB RAM model while 8GB RAM model is priced around $600. But no phone among these is a perfect phone. Every phone has it's ups and downs and so these phones have. So it only depend upon priorities which phone to buy.
