It Huawei Mate 8 is a high-end phablet with especially large screen, input should speak to be rather more expensive than the OnePlus 3 and its starting price, indeed, was significantly higher. Now that it’s been a few months since its launch, however, it is possible to find prices much lower, and not so far already from the new phablet of OnePlus. Could it be an interesting alternative to this? We will try to do it with this comparison with the technical specifications of the two.
While the evolution of the OnePlus 3 regarding their predecessors has been important and the fingerprint reader in addition to already finishes premium of a metal housing, the level of Mate 8 assures us that this does not have anything to envy in any of these two points. We cannot confine ourselves, therefore, to fjarnos mainly on which of the two designs more attractive is us.
Taking into account that the Huawei phablet screen is quite larger than the of the of OnePlus, we could consider even that the difference between the dimensions of both is relatively small (15.27 x 7.47 cm against 15.71 x 8.06 cm) and the same could be said of the weight (158 grams against 185 grams). Distances are reduced even more, finally, in thick (7.35 mm to 7.9 mm).
As we have already mentioned, the main difference between these two phablets screens is the size (5.5 inch front 6.0 inch), because that resolution would be tied (1920 x 1080), although is inevitable by this difference in dimensions, the density of pixels in the matte 8 be lower (401-PPI front 367 PPI). It should also be mentioned that the phablet of OnePlus uses AMOLED panels, while Huawei are LCD.
OnePlus 3 usually noted with respect to other phablets of range half thanks mainly to its processor, but to face it with a phablet of Mate 8 level scale is rather more balanced (quad-coreSnapdragon 820 ) and 2.2 GHz maximum frequency against Kirin 950 of eight cores and 2.3 GHz maximum frequency. The advantage is more clear in RAM (6 GB to 3 GB), but must be taken into account that actual usage tests have subtracted him something important to this figure.
Here change the tables and it is now the phablet of Huawei , which is done with the victory, as they both offer us the same amount of internal memory (32 GB), but only the matte 8 gives us, moreover, the possibility of extending it externally through micro-SDcard, since the OnePlus 3 has no slot for this.
The figures back to be quite similar in the section on cameras, starting with the number of megapixels, which is 16 MP 8 MP and head for the frontal.y following the opening of f/2.0 in both cases in both phablets. The two can also boast with optical image stabilizer.
As you might expect, the fact that Matt 8 screen is half an inch larger also gives advantage in point of autonomy, since even in spite of the great optimization of its dimensions, gets to host a battery of a capacity much greater: 3000 mAh front 4000 mAh. Of course, you know that, in any case, the shots have it the evidence of actual use, taking into account the consumption of the device, something difficult to predict with accuracy only by technical specifications.
As we said at the beginning, the difference between these two phablets starting price was around 200 euros, but is now much-reduced to less than half in fact, since the OnePlus 3 will be sold for 400 euros and Huawei Mate 8 can be already used in some distributors below even of 500 euros.
