The display has Full HD+ resolution and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s has a 5.99-inch bezel-less display with IPS LCD technology, Full HD+ resolution, and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.

The display of the OnePlus 5T also has the DCI-P3 colour gamut, meaning it has more colour coverage and higher colour accuracy.

Honor 10 vs OnePlus 5T vs Mi Mix 2s: Camera

The Huawei Honor 10 features a 16MP + 24MP dual-camera setup. The 16MP sensor is a colour sensor (RGB), while the 24MP sensor is a monochrome sensor. According to Huawei, the monochrome sensor will aid in better low-light images. The primary camera has phase-detection autofocus, an LED flash, and 4K video recording capability. The device has the highest resolution front-facing camera among the three smartphones; a 24MP unit.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s has a 12MP + 12MP dual-camera setup for the primary camera. The first 12MP sensor has regular FoV, while the second 12MP sensor has zoomed FoV. The primary camera setup has 4-axis OIS, dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus, dual-tone dual-LED flash, and 4K recording at 30 frames per second. The device still uses a 5MP front-facing camera borrowed from its predecessor.

The OnePlus 5T has a 16MP+ 20MP dual-camera setup with phase-detection autofocus, EIS, dual-tone dual-LED flash, and 4K video recording. The device has a 16MP front-facing camera. We reviewed the OnePlus 5T and found the camera’s image quality to be excellent. The device managed to beat the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and the Nokia 8 in terms of details, colour accuracy, and lens flare. However, it is to be seen how the device competes with the Mi Mix 2s and the Honor 10.

Honor 10 vs OnePlus 5T vs Mi Mix 2s: Performance

The Huawei Honor 10 features the same Kirin 970 SoC that is found in the Honor View 10 smartphone. The device has 6GB of RAM, and the device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo OS. Huawei has customised the OS with EMUI 8.1, and though the EMIUI 8.1 is not very appealing to eyes, it does have tons of features over the stock Android UI. The Honor 10 is powered by a 3400mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. As we’ve mentioned above, the device comes in 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM variants. The Mi Mix 2s runs on Android 8.0 Oreo OS, and the OS features MIUI 9.5 customisation. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 had a very smooth and fast performance during our review; we expect the Mi Mix 2s to be even better. The Mi Mix 2s also comes with a 3400mAh battery, similar to the Honor 10.

The OnePlus 5T houses Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM. The device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo OS customised with Oxygen OS. The Oxygen OS looks similar to the stock Android UI, but it has many additional features over the stock Android UI. The OnePlus 5T is so far the smoothest and the fastest Android smartphone we ever experienced. Click here for the full review. The OnePlus 5T has a 3300mAh battery, and it features DashCharge that charges the OnePlus 5T from 0 to 100 percent under 100 minutes.

Honor 10 vs OnePlus 5T vs Mi Mix 2s: Verdict

The Honor 10 in spite of being a newer smartphone, does not offer anything extra over the OnePlus 5T or the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s. Hence, we don’t think it’s worth buying the Honor 10 unless it is priced significantly lower than the other two devices in the comparison.

Xiaomi has packed the Mi Mix 2s with a dual-camera setup and a more powerful processor than the OnePlus 5T. However, we think that OnePlus 5T is still an overall better device, as it has an AMOLED display and a way better front-facing camera than the Mi Mix 2s, making the OnePlus 5T the winner of this comparison.
