Xiaomi Mi 8 vs OnePlus 6 camera test comparison

04 June 2018 4

Xiaomi Mi 8 is the latest smartphone to adopt the display notch just like many others. The Mi 8 is a look-alike of the iPhone X like many others, however, Mi 8 goes one step ahead and is actually considered as a clone of Apple’s flagship device. Well, not just the rear panel, but the front panel is also similar to the iPhone X. For the very first time, an Android Phone is featuring a bigger display as it accommodates IR camera sensors for Face ID tech and many other things.

Talking about the OnePlus 6, the device is following its company’s strategy very loyally. The company creates a different track for its smartphones and make them lead even ahead of the existing devices that are already running at a ferocious speed. OnePlus 6 is courageously giving tough competitions to the existing flagships and also to the new entrants. Talking about the latter, the OnePlus 6 has Mi 8 in front of it with top-notch specifications and features.

The YouTuber TechBuzz took the two devices and made a camera test comparison. In a video, the YouTuber shows the camera samples and video results taken with Mi 8 and OnePlus 6. The comparison video first starts with the usual test that shows the video results taken in 1080p at 30fps. While the Mi 8 has only OIS, the OnePlus 6 cameras have both OIS and EIS for better stabilization. But still, the comparison isn’t drastic and the OnePlus 6 doesn’t seem to be offering any better results.

The YouTuber then shares the camera samples taken in different lighting conditions - daylight, indoor, low-light.

Xiaomi Mi 8 has dual 12 MP (f/1.8 4-axis OIS, dual-pixel PDAF) + 12 MP (f/2.4) camera with 2x optical zoom and the OnePlus 6 has dual 16 MP (f/1.7, gyro-EIS, OIS) + 20 MP (f/1.7) cameras.
