OnePlus 5 vs Honor 8 Pro: The Battle Of Dual Camera Android Phones
There was no doubt that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T were the phones to buy last year, but Honor also made waves with the Honor 8 simply because of its beautiful design.
OnePlus is all set to unveil the OnePlus 5 on June 20th and India will see this phone just two days after that on June 22nd. OnePlus has already shown on their social feeds that the phone will sport a dual-camera setup. But Chinese tech giant Huawei's sub-brand Honor is also all set to launch their dual-camera powerhouse smartphone the Honor 8 Pro.

Both the phones are expected to be in a similar price bracket and will pose competition to each other. While OnePlus has had a massive fan following for the past couple of years, a brand like Honor is also playing catch up in the popularity rating.

There was no doubt that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T were the phones to buy last year, but Honor also made waves with the Honor 8 simply because of its beautiful design. So the stage is set for a battle between the OnePlus 5 and the Honor 8 Pro for dual camera lovers.

So what will make them different?

The OnePlus 5 as rumours suggest will come with a dual camera setup that will have one normal lens and one telephoto lens. That is Apple iPhone 7 Plus stuff. Honor, on the other hand, is known for making dual camera setups that have similar lenses and one is for monochrome effect usually. We expect the same with Honor 8 Pro. In fact, back in April, we gave you a first look of the Honor 8 Pro that we procured from China. Take a look at that in the video below.



What you might have noticed is that the Honor 8 Pro comes with a flat back design that just aesthetically pleasing to look at. OnePlus 5 image that was posted on Twitter by the company suggests of a massive camera bump that looks very similar to the iPhone 7 Plus camera bump.

Another interesting thing here to look forward too is that OnePlus has always believed in designing simple camera apps. There are usually no editing functions or filters or 10-different modes. Honor has been known for giving some good editing image tools as well as some cool features like good food photography and monochrome.

So it will be interesting to see whether consumers go for the camera capabilities of both these phones or for the overall package. We'll get to know that soon, so what this space for more on both OnePlus 5 and the Honor 8 Pro.
