OnePlus 5T vs iPhone X Camera Test Comparison

OnePlus 5T vs iPhone X Camera Test Comparison


Hi guys, it’s MTG here, and today I’m going
to be comparing the cameras found on the OnePlus 5T and the iPhone X. This camera comparison is interesting for
a couple of reasons. First off, the OnePlus 5T is half the price
of the iPhone X. Also, Boston just experienced its first snowfall,
so expect to see a lot of snowy pictures and 4K video of MIT’s campus. Both phones are on their latest software updates,
and everything was set to automatic. Let’s get right into it. The OnePlus 5T is equipped with a dual camera
system. Both cameras have an aperture of f/1.7. The main camera is 16 megapixels, whereas
the second low-light camera is 20 Megapixels. By intelligently combining every 4 megapixels
into one, the 5T is able to reduce noise in very dark scenarios. This feature cannot be manually activated
and is only activated when it gets really, really dark. The 5T, heavily utilizing software, can take
wide-angle portrait mode pictures. The main camera can shoot 4K at up to 30 fps
and 1080p at up to 60 fps. It has gyroscope-based electronic image stabilization. The front camera has an aperture of f/2.0
and is an impressive 16 Megapixels with auto HDR capabilities. It can record up to 1080p at 30fps and also
has gyro-based EIS. The iPhone X has a dual-12 Megapixel camera
system, with a wide-angle and telephoto lens at f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures respectively. The telephoto lens allows the X to have 2x
optical zoom and take depth-effect portrait pictures. The cameras can record up to 4K at 60 fps
and 1080p at up to 240 fps. They have dual optical image stabilization. The X’s front TrueDepth camera is 7 Megapixels
with an aperture of f/2.2. It can take portrait mode pictures, and can
record video at up to 1080p at 30 fps. Right off the bat, we can see how great both
cameras really are. But the iPhone X seems to have the upper hand
in that it was able to capture more of the colors in the sky. Everything just looks more vivid in the iPhone
X’s image. In this next shot, you’ll start to notice
the trend that the iPhone will shoot the warmer image. Both images are very detailed, and both do
a good job of not letting the sun overpower the image. Again, both the 5T and the iPhone X were able
to pick up a great amount of detail, but the colors pop more in the iPhone’s image. In my testing, the iPhone may sometime oversaturate
the images, which leads to unrealistic colors. But many people do prefer this saturated look. It’s just something to keep in mind. This shot had challenging lighting conditions
with light and dark areas, but both the iPhone X and 5T were able to capture lots of detail
in both the foreground and background. The iPhone’s great HDR capabilities are shown
here, and everything is just a little brighter in the iPhone X’s image. This image shows how the iPhone does tend
to oversaturate their shots and put warmer tint on its images. The wall in the iPhone X’s shot looks more
yellow, whereas the 5T’s shot depicts the colors more naturally. Again, the iPhone X’s very warm image is apparent. The colors look a lot more natural and true
to life in the OnePlus 5T’s image. On the other hand, iPhone X’s camera seemed
to be able to better handle more complex situations. Resulting in overall brighter, and more detailed
images. In various outdoor shots, the pictures produced
by each phone are almost indistinguishable except for the differences in color temperature. Some may prefer the coolness of the 5T’s shots,
and others may prefer the warmness of the iPhone X’s shot. In good, even lighting, it’s virtually impossible
to criticize either phone’s cameras. In this shot, you can see that there is a
slight lens flare on the 5T’s shot, but the 5T does the overall better job at maintaining
the colors on the side of Kresge Auditorium. The 5T actually had the better HDR shot with
this picture. In instances where you’re far from the subject,
the iPhone X is the only phone that can get close enough with its telephoto lens that
can do 2x optical zoom. The 5T would have to digitally zoom to get
the same shot, which leads to degradation of quality. Shifting over to portrait mode, I expected
the iPhone X to really blow the 5T out of the water, especially because the iPhone X
has a telephoto lens to help find edges, whereas the 5T has to heavily utilize software because
it lacks the telephoto lens. You’ll notice that the OnePlus 5T’s portrait
pictures can capture a lot more in frame because it doesn’t utilize a telephoto lens. In order to have the same framing, you have
to actually step back a couple of feet with the iPhone X. The 5T actually did the better job of keeping
everything that was supposed to be in focus, in focus. The iPhone X keeps my face in focus, but even
my jacket is blurred when it shouldn’t be. Some people will still prefer the warmer look
of the iPhone X’s shot, but the 5T’s portrait mode is also really good. Looking at pictures from the front cameras
of both phones, you will be satisfied with both phones. In these shots, I turned off the skin smoothing
features of the OnePlus 5T. The 5T has the slightly wider-angle lens,
and any other differences really just come down to color temperature. Looking at video, keep in mind that the iPhone
X can shoot 4K at 60 fps, but it was set to 30 fps because that’s what this video is posted
at. The 4K video produced by both phones is great,
with each phone having its pros and cons. The iPhone X’s optical image stabilization
made for smoother pans, whereas the gyroscope-based electronic stabilization on the OnePlus 5T
made for smoother forward walking shots. The iPhone X’s camera was able to take in
more light, resulting in an overall brighter image. The other hand, the OnePlus 5T’s camera was
able to capture the colors of the sky better. The front
cameras also take some pretty solid video. The 5T’s front camera also uses gyro electronic
image stabilization. As a result, the 5T’s video looks smoother
as I walk. The iPhone X doesn’t have stabilization on
the front camera, but you do get the larger frame of view. And the iPhone X’s video gets my skin color
closer to what it actually is. On the other hand, the OnePlus 5T had the
clearer audio, where the iPhone X’s audio sounded slightly more muffled. Next I’ll show how the cameras performed in
low-light. Again, on the 5T you can’t switch to the low-light
camera automatically, but when it detects that its dark enough, the phone automatically
switches to it. The only time it actually switched cameras
when I was taking night shots was when I was the actual subject of the image. The OnePlus 5T did the better job at dealing
with lights that were in frame.(memorial drive sign) Almost every light in the iPhone’s image
created a streak of light, whereas in the 5T’s shot, the lights aren’t overblown and
the general noise of the picture is less. (circle lamp posts) Again in this shot, the
OnePlus 5T was able to handle the light coming out of the lamps better and also captured
the picture with less noise. This is the first scenario where the 5T actually
switched to its low-light camera, and honestly I think its also the first low-light shot
that the iPhone X did better in. Colors just look more realistic in the iPhone’s
shot, while it still maintains clarity. The 5T makes the sky and my jacket look black,
and can’t differentiate where the auditorium behind me ends and the sky starts. This shot also utilized the second lens on
the 5T. The 5T handles the light better as usual,
but again in this shot, the iPhone X did the better job of maintaining all of the colors
in the image. As you can see, each camera had its advantages
and disadvantages. Also, different people will prefer different
levels of saturation and different color temperatures. I just really enjoy the fact that I can compare
two phones’ cameras when one phone is twice the price of the other. Clearly, the iPhone X’s camera isn’t twice
as good as the OnePlus 5T’s. Let me know in the comment section which scenarios
you’re more likely to shoot in, and let me know your thoughts on which cameras performed
better. Tomorrow I’ll be posting another camera comparison,
this time with the Pixel 2 XL, so stay tuned for that. If you liked this video, please give this

  2. Oneplus 5t is way…way better than iphone X and the reason is its price half the price of iphone X but tough fight…M buying the oneplus 5t its done 👍

  3. I got an Iphone X even though I am an Android fan, I got the ip X because from my experience androids are programed to self destruct in 2 years after 2 years my s7 plus was having lots of problems with the battery, lag and Ram and black screen, blablabla like seriously I got tired!

  4. back in the days when samsung has more saturate pictures than the apples…people seems to love the 'natural image' LOL

  5. I want mixed lenses on oneplus 5t of s9 and I phone x please I am so much waiting for an ultimate camera phone which can beat all of the these!!!

  6. YOU HAVE DONE AN AMAZING JOB AND IN A REALLY AMAZING ENVIRONMENT(WEATHER),iphone"s picture quality is epic ,though considering 5T price 5T"s camera does a completely amazing job..but in case of front camera 5T is the winner here

  7. Honestly great to see that there is finally real competition to Apple and now I'm not forced into necessarily buying Apple prodcuts

  8. I think OnePlus 5t camera does the best at this price than the iPhone x, regardless of the price still OnePlus 5t camera is the best

  9. proud owner oneplus 5t! OP5t is impressive also for the price. Camer stock can do more with software improvement! sometimes Gcam is better than the stock. i hope OP is providing some lack in term of software for the stock camera.

  10. I m dying to know how one plus 5t selfi I.e front camera work on very low light comparing both phone iPhone x and 5t

    Plz tell me my sister B-Day is near and I have to pick one

    She is a selfi freak so I have to take care of it n………..😄

  11. No doubt both are great phones. But as u said i phone x is twice the price of one plus, the phone really outperforms some of the images captured by iPhone. Thanks for this comparing video as i am able to decide better about buying the phone as i m really fond of taking pictures. 😃😘

  12. Well, the EIS on the OnePlus 5T is obviously changed with an update, I cannot reproduce this jittering on panning shots – its butter smooth (as a 30 fps shot can be)

  13. I've heard/read quite a lot of reviewers saying that the OnePlus 5T camera is sub-par or not good enough. Are they crazy?!
    This video shows that the 5T's camera is comparable to that of a flagship phone, with a mid-range price. They want better than that?! Come on!

  14. I just discovered your channel and i must say, man u're doing a pretty good job? Keep it on. You have a new suscriber

  15. I think its not impartial. because Difference between ois and eis is not revealed. the camera of Oneplus 5T is making extra effort to keep it steady to shoot properly

  16. Love you man forget about the comparison
    Your presentation and the way you explained the things loved it bro..😍

  17. Im sorry how much is the OnePlus 5T again? About $500 less?? This just goes to show how much more your actually getting when you buy a $1000 smartphone!
    For what, a rear camera that a lil better and a lil more consistent? Even if I HAD $1000 to spend I'd buy the OnePlus 5T over the iPhone X! (kudos to iPads tho, especially the 9.7in 2018 one)

  18. One plus 5t is wayyyy more better .. I HV been a super fan of the iPhone x I HV one now but actually I'm gonna switch to the 5t 💖

  19. 5T sucks when it comes to motion shots, try clicking picture of a moving person and you will know the difference.

  20. I appreciate the vlog very useful. We are looking some underwater shorts for upcoming oneplus 6 vs iPhone x.

  21. m using 5t..but the camera quality in low light of 5t is so bad..even bad than normal phone at normal range of 6k..in daylight obviously every phone shows better quality

  22. ofcourse, iphone x took the better photo, but oneplus 5t does magic. . . . .it's twice inexpensive than iphone x but certainly iphone x is not twice better.. . .

  23. Oh such a toss up with the cameras 🙁
    The tones really make and break eachother… Not sure which one would be over all happy w
