Design and display
One look at the iPhone 12 and you will get goose bumps thanks to the box-shaped iPhone 5S-like nostalgic construction with a very flat design language. It still feels very 2020. When you talk about the OnePlus 8T you get a feeling that it is trying to be a mean kid who plays it safe. The design doesn’t have much to tell as it’s more or less the same as its predecessor. One big difference, however, is the left-aligned rectangular camera module.
The iPhone 12 comes in an aluminum case in five refreshing colors – green, blue, red, white and black. However, the 8T has a matte glass panel with the modern color options Aquamarine Green or Lunar Silver. The displays on both phones are impressive in terms of hardware. The iPhone has a 6.1-inch OLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and a resolution of 1170 x 2532 (at 457 PPI), while the OnePlus 8T has an AMOLED 6.55-inch display a slightly lower resolution of 1080 x 2400 (at 402 ppi) with an aspect ratio of 20: 9.
Performance and battery life
OnePlus 8T is powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor, which is based on a 7 nm manufacturing process. We would have loved to see the current Snapdragon 865 Plus aboard the 8T, but that’s not happening. The performance in daily use should be good as the Snapdragon 865 has enough power and handles even the most graphical and process-intensive tasks like a charm.
Apple’s A14 Bionic chip for the iPhone 12 will be ahead of the Qualcomm SoC on the OnePlus 8T. It is based on the 5nm manufacturing process and should come with better processing power and better battery management. This gives the iPhone 12 a huge advantage over the OnePlus 8T. If you’re looking for raw processing power combined with great process management, the iPhone 12 is the way to go, even if it only has 4GB of RAM.
The OnePlus 8T comes with a listed 4,500 mAh battery, while the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 has not yet been confirmed by Apple. However, Apple claims that the phone can stream 15 hours of video playback. Both devices should have excellent battery performance, which is comparable given the great cohesion of hardware and software of the Apple ecosystem and the superior battery management of Android 11 for Snapdragon 865 SoC.
The OnePlus 8T has a quad camera setup on the back, including a 48-megapixel main shooter with an aperture size of f / 1.7 and a pixel size of 0.8 μm. The camera uses pixel binning and combines 4 pixels into one for 12 megapixel photos, which are suitable for shooting in low light conditions. The iPhone 12 has a 12-megapixel main camera with a 1.4 μm aperture of 1.6, which promises good photography in all lighting conditions. Both devices weren’t a huge upgrade from their predecessors, but improved post-processing on both is notable.
OnePlus gets a 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, while the iPhone has a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera. The 8T gets another set of 5MP macro shooters and 2MP monochrome shooters, which are good for numbers but don’t mean too much to the average user. On the front, the OnePlus 8T has a 16-megapixel selfie shooter and the iPhone 12 has a 12-megapixel camera. When it comes to videos, the iPhone inherently has the upper hand and can record 4K videos at 30 frames per second in Dolby Vision HDR. 8T hasn’t lagged far behind with features like Video Nighscape for better night light video shooting. However, no 4K recording option is available in this mode.
Price and storage options
The OnePlus 8T will be available for $ 749 in 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The iPhone 12, on the other hand, will be available in three configurations. The base model with 4GB of RAM / 64GB of storage is $ 799 – a sticker of just $ 50 that separates the two at the base. You’ll have to pay $ 949 for the premium 4GB RAM / 256GB variant. Even the 4GB RAM / 128GB version of the iPhone 12 costs $ 849, $ 100 more than the OnePlus 8T version.
OnePlus 8T offers a strategic advantage in the form of 65W fast charge, 120Hz refresh rate display and overall faster performance with Android 11 and radically improved OxygenOS11. The T-Mobile version of the OnePlus 8T is expected to have an IP68 rating, so the carrier-locked device has an advantage here.
On the other hand, the iPhone is equipped with the advanced A14 Bionic chip, which has superior performance than the Snapdragon 865 and better video recording ability. Both devices have their own set of advantages that will appeal to a specific group of buyers.
What is an advantage for one becomes a disadvantage for another who lacks a certain characteristic, but certain things are an absolute deal breaker. For example, the iPhone still has a notch that houses the front-facing camera and sensors. This year the iPhone doesn’t come with a charger or EarPods in the box, which surprised everyone, although Apple has valid reasons for it. Another downside that might be of concern to some users is the old school iPhone 12’s 60Hz refresh rate.
On the other hand, OnePlus doesn’t usually leave anything fundamental to complain about, but a 2020 flagship with no official water and dust rating is a huge downside.
Where should the money go?
Both devices are distinguished in their own rights and have their own USPs. The OnePlus 8T is a worthy upgrade from the OnePlus 8, but it lacks a few things that could have made it a great flagship killer.
The iPhone 12, on the other hand, is a radical upgrade of the iPhone 11 in every way and a head start in a few departments like processing power, cameras, and overall design. So this time around, the iPhone 12 is a slightly better choice than the OnePlus 8T for what it brings to the Apple ecosystem. The Apple device is well worth spending a little extra and this is where your money should go.
