OnePlus 10 Pro vs Google Pixel 6 Pro — Who wins?


An Android flagship candidate for early in 2022, the OnePlus 10 Pro is a serious competitor. It’s a tough ask, but can it beat Google’s powerful Pixel 6 Pro?

Aside from the Android OS basis, they are two quite distinct phones with two very different antecedents.

Since the OnePlus 10 Pro was released in China first, we haven’t had a chance to test it out. However, we have a complete list of specifications and photos.


Here’s a look at how the two Pros stack up against one another.

The pricing and availability of the OnePlus 10 Pro and Google Pixel 6 Pro have been released.
On January 11, 2022, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s covers were officially lifted in China, albeit just for the time being. The worldwide deployment is still pending.

8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage start at 4,699 Chinese Yuan ($740/£550/AU$1,056) in China. 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage costs you $4,999 Chinese Yuan ($786/£581/AU$1,123), while 12GB of RAM with 256GB of storage costs you $5,299 Chinese Yuan ($833/£621/AU$1,191).


On October 28, 2021, Google introduced its Pixel 6 Pro. Prices for 128GB of storage begin at $899 (£849/AU$1,299). For $999/£949/AU$1,449, you can upgrade to a model with 256GB of memory. The 512GB variant costs $1,099/AU$1,599 in the United States and Australia.

In terms of design, Google Pixel 6 Pro vs. OnePlus 10 Pro:

In a mature smartphone industry where design innovation is uncommon, these two devices are refreshing.

The cameras on each phone are unique. The camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro is more square and flat, and it protrudes from the phone’s left side.


With its visor-like design, the camera module on the Pixel 6 Pro looks like something from Daft Punk’s helmets.

The Pixel 6 Pro’s two-tone colouring, separated on each side of the camera module, has a lot to say about its boldness and freshness.

The Pixel 6 Pro is the larger and heaviest of the two, regardless of aesthetics. Pixel 6 Pro weighs 210g, whereas OnePlus 10 Pro measures 163 x 73.9 x 8.6 mm and weighs 200.5g.


With metal frames and Gorilla Glass Victus covers, there’s nothing to separate the two phones in terms of build quality.

It’s hard to tell the difference between the screens of these two phones. In terms of screen size, both the OnePlus 10 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro are almost the same, measuring 6.7 inches and 6.71 inches, respectively.

Both devices boast QHD+ screens, which means they’re crammed with pixels. You’ll also enjoy the bright colours and deep blacks of AMOLED display technology.


The OnePlus 10 Pro has an LTPO2 display, while the Pixel 6 Pro has an LTPO display. The OnePlus 10 Pro, on the other hand, can scale down to 1Hz, whilst the Pixel 6 Pro can scale down to 10Hz from 120Hz. For want of a better term, it’s the better option.

The Pixel 6 Pro’s maximum brightness is 800 nits, but the OnePlus 10 Pro’s maximum brightness is 1300 nits.

In terms of specifications, the OnePlus 10 Pro looks to have a little advantage over the Pixel 6 Pro.


When it comes to cameras, the two devices are neck and neck.

Early indications point to the Pixel 6 Pro’s camera being superior. As far as cameras go, Google has made significant strides, but OnePlus looks to be treading water, at least in terms of the hardware it offers.

All three of the OnePlus 10 Pro’s cameras are capable of taking photos with a maximum optical zoom of 3.3x. These features seem to be identical to last year’s model except for the addition of a 150-degree ultrawide camera.

In contrast to the Google Pixel 5, the Pixel 6 Pro has caused quite a stir. With a 50MP wide-sensor, an f/1.85 aperture and a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, as well as an optical zoom of 4x, it’s one of the most advanced cameras on the market.


Overall, we found the Pixel 6 Pro to be “the finest photographic experience ever on a Pixel phone”. The OnePlus 10 Pro is expected to improve on its predecessor with enhanced AI algorithms and more powerful picture processing, although it is unlikely to be a massive upgrade.

Compare the OnePlus 10 Pro with Pixel 6 Pro for the best value.

Qualcomm’s cutting-edge Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU powers the OnePlus 10 Pro and is believed to be 20% quicker than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. It is the first time Google’s Tensor processing has been used in a Pixel phone.

Even before we put it to the test, the OnePlus 10 Pro seems to have the upper hand in terms of sheer performance. According to Geekbench 5, the Pixel 6 Pro’s multi-core average score was 2760, which is considerably behind the 3630 achieved by the OnePlus 9 Pro, which is powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor.


While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 may have a little edge in terms of processing power, we’re not ready to write out the Tensor just yet. Because of Google’s concentration on machine learning for its own chip, that excellent camera does its finest job.

In addition, the Pixel 6 Pro is just as speedy and fluid as any other high-end smartphone we’ve used recently.

OnePlus has included 8GB of RAM in its phone, but a 12GB RAM upgrade is available. Standard storage on the Pixel 6 Pro is 12GB.


When it comes to storage, both phones offer 128GB and 256GB capacities, with the Pixel 6 Pro additionally offering up to 512GB of storage in certain areas.

The UI will also be a source of contention. In its original China area incarnation, the OnePlus 10 Pro is running Oppo’s ColorOS, so we have no idea how it will look when it ships to the rest of the world.

The OxygenOS of OnePlus is expected to make a comeback, however owing to the merger of the two businesses, it will be built on top of ColorOS.


There isn’t any similar haziness around the Pixel 6 Pro. ‘Material You’ themed wallpapers are included in the Android 12 flagship. Three complete software upgrades are also assured.

Battery comparison: OnePlus 10 Pro versus Google Pixel 6 Pro

They have 5,000 mAh batteries, which is necessary considering their large, crisp, high-refresh-rate screens. ‘Pro’ phones

We don’t yet know what the OnePlus 10 Pro’s battery life will be like, but it’s safe to assume that it will be far better than the OnePlus 9 Pro’s “reliably take you through a full day on a full charge with average usage” claim.


In terms of the Pixel 6 Pro’s battery life, we considered it to be the phone’s worst feature. However, for an average day’s use, it was enough.

When it comes to recharging, just one option stands out. The OnePlus 10 Pro comes with an 80W charger pre-installed. You can only charge your phone at 30W with Google, and they don’t provide you any bricks.

The OnePlus 10 Pro offers 50W wireless charging, whereas the Google Pixel 6 Pro supports 12W. However, Google has designed a wireless charging port that is limited to 23W.



Even though the OnePlus 10 Pro hasn’t yet been tested, it has the potential to give the Pixel 6 Pro a tough time in this comparison.

In terms of features, it seems to have an advantage over Google‘s flagship phone.

In contrast, we like Google’s distinct appearance and believe its camera will outperform the OnePlus device’s, which has remained almost unaltered. Although we doubt that OnePlus can keep up its excellent custom UI work, we also doubt that Google can provide you pure Android 12.


To make matters worse, the OnePlus 10 Pro’s price in different regions remains a mystery. As soon as we get our hands on further information, we’ll return to this Android flagship battle. Source
