Here we have three phones that fall in the category of flagship killers or mid-range flagships — OnePlus 9RT, OnePlus 10 Pro, and Xiaomi 11T Pro. All of them come powered by high-end Qualcomm processors and top-billed specs. But when it comes to your money, which of these offer more value. Also, in this spec comparison cum analysis of sort, you’d be able to find the phone that better fits your bill. So, let’s get down to the brass tacks.
Design and Display
Of the three phones, the OnePlus 9RT is the lighter and slimmer phone and hence the handier one of the lot. But, in terms of design, the OnePlus 10 Pro is the better looker and slightly better-built phone. It has got Gorilla Glass Victus on the front, Gorilla Glass by the back, and an Aluminum frame. It also has an IP68 ingress rating which should be reassuring.
Coming to the display, it inches by a smidgen for the use of an LTPO 2.0 panel. The real-world benefits of it are yet to be assessed, theoretically, it is said to offer a real adaptive refresh rate from 1Hz to 120Hz and save some juice in the process.
Meanwhile, the Xiaomi 11T Pro also rocks many of the eye-catching display features like Dolby Vision, HDR10+, 1B colors, AMOLED, 120Hz refresh rate, etc.
Although it isn’t aiming for a megapixel win, the OnePlus 10 Pro‘s troika is boasting an unprecedented 150° ultrawide clicks, a 2nd-gen Hasselblad Pro Mode with features like 10-bit color photos (with a 25% increase over DCI-P3 color coverage), an option to shoot in 12-bit RAW format and a “Movie Mode” with finer ISO and shutter speed controls as well as LOG-format videos. On crude specs too, it stands out in way of its 8K video recording ability and 32MP front camera sensor.
However, the 108MP wielding Xiaomi 11T Pro also appears to have capable cameras for shutterbugs amongst you.
Software and Performance
Again, the OnePlus 10 Pro leads the pack with Android 12.1 software out of the box. Now, the OxygenOS skin it ships with to your market would have more in common with ColorOS than before, but should you like it would depend on how minimalist are you. When it comes to features, it would be loaded much like the MIUI 12 skin of the Xiaomi 11T Pro.
Even on the performance front, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 inside the OnePlus 10 Pro is more powerful than the Snapdragon 888 within the other two. But, the difference won’t be like night and day. So, all three phones should be competent for your everyday digital drudgery and for satiating the power user needs.
Battery and Connectivity
As for the battery, the 5000mAh cell plus 120W fast charging of the Xiaomi 11T Pro takes the cake. That said, the other two aren’t that behind either. The 4500mAh + 65W setup of the OnePlus 9RT and 5000mAh + 80W configuration of the OnePlus 10 Pro should be fairly dependable too.
On the connectivity front, the main thing is all three devices are 5G capable, however, pay heed to the supported bands. For instance, the 9RT comes equipped with eight 5G bands (5G NR NSA: N1, 3, 5, 8, 40, 41, 78 and 5G SA: N1, 3, 5, 8, 28A (703-733MHz), TDD: N40, 41, 78). Xiaomi 11T Pro supports 13 5G bands while we will have to wait for the OnePlus 10 Pro to launch in India to find out the exact number.
Anyways, here’s a spec-by-spec comparison of the three devices.
