3

With the start of the year, we are seeing several phones with dual cameras, Honor 8 Pro and OnePlus 5 is among them which are also the top-of-the-line smartphones from the respective companies. We decided to compare the dual cameras of Honor 8 Pro and OnePlus 5 since these are the two smartphones that come under ₹30,000 to ₹35,000 price bracket. Before you make a judgment, you should take a look at the camera samples camera samples we took for the comparison.

Apart from the slim and attractive metal body, Honor 8 Pro uses a dual 12 MP camera on the rear side which tackles the dual camera on the OnePlus 5. OnePlus 5 also comes with two cameras, 16 MP + 20 MP with dual-tone LED flash. There’s the front 16 MP camera as opposed to the 8 MP front camera on the Honor 8 Pro.

Honor is much experienced in the dual camera segment since there are existing dual camera phones from Honor as well as knowing that HUAWEI is their parent company which also develops some great dual camera phones. We witnessed the HUAWEI P9 last year and more or less, the camera on the Honor 8 Pro performs the same. And EMUI has tons of features in the camera, with its signature feature Monochrome, Splash effect which we first saw on Honor 6X, and many modes to play with. Honor 8 Pro has a fully featured camera software.

On the contrary, this is the first OnePlus smartphone with a dual camera, the software is clean, offers fewer features. The Portrait mode on the OnePlus takes bokeh effect photos. Honor 8 Pro has the ability to adjust the amount of blur amount. Plus, the software makes it easier for you to control the camera.

Both the phones are capable of recording 4K videos but one gets an advantage.

Conclusion – Honor 8 Pro Is The Overall Winner

Honor 8 Pro takes sharp photos, the details are hardly missed. The low light shots turn out to be better on the Honor 8 Pro, and its Night mode is the real deal if you can hold the phone still. If you are into photography, I would recommend Honor 8 Pro. It’s a perfect choice for people who love taking photos from smartphone cameras. On the contrary, the camera is still great, but it is a bit more of a performance oriented device with raw processing power, less focused on camera section.

awesome comparison but little correction in the specs team, both phones don’t have OIS (optical image stabilization) only EIS and I personally liked the images on Honor 8pro better than OP5!!

Well i would buy oneplus 5.I am not oneplus fan boy all i want bang for the buck. However i like the screen size, 2k display and sound quality of Honor 8 pro but OS sucks and i heard heating issue. and person who spend more than 9 hours in a job don’t have enough time for photography. About OPO 5 i like the OS, Performance, frequent updates, DAC for Music. I use my oneplus one for about 3 to 4 hours in a day barley but now half of the screen stopped responding and looking for new mobile. earlier… Read more »
