The moderate cell phone in the lead class has been seeing an exceptional measure of rivalry lately. At first overwhelmed by OnePlus and Xiaomi, this space is presently engaging more participants from more seasoned players, for example, Huawei, Nokia and ASUS. For 2018, OnePlus patched up its offering again with the OnePlus 6 (OP6), making it one of the main cell phones on India to offer Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset. Combined alongside very skilled cameras and a cutting edge plan, the OnePlus 6 is an incredible esteem, particularly when you consider its beginning cost of Rs 34,999.

While Xiaomi and OnePlus have been playing the ‘moderate’ amusement, Huawei and ASUS appear to crawl up the collars of the two players to get an offer of their pie. With the Honor 10, Huawei played its cards well to being in a chic-looking lead against the OnePlus 6.

Also, now, ASUS is by all accounts increasing potential, gradually demonstrating their ability against Xiaomi and OnePlus. We saw them snatch Xiaomi’s pie with the Zenfone Max Pro M1, and now they are hard and fast to get the bull (OnePlus) by its horns with the Zenfone 5z.

Their lead for the year (at any rate until the point that the ROG arrives) is additionally furnished with a Snapdragon 845 chip, making it the main second brand to get the 845 winged serpent into India. This SoC, combined with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of capacity, makes it qualified to now get a similar bull by its tail, and that too with stunning costs. The Zenfone 5z without a doubt wins the ‘reasonable’ title concerning the value it requests.

Proceeding onward, the 5z centers to a great degree around AI and figures out how to put a decent show in the optics division. Beginning at Rs 29,999, it undermines the OP6 by an impressive edge — a funds of just about 5,000 to 10,000, contingent upon which variation you pick.

On the off chance that you are out for a premium cell phone, these two choices do represent an incredible issue. In this manner, we put them two on the phase for you to see which one tolls better.

Feel, Build:

Both the cell phones have embellished present day glass-metal form, including Gorilla Glass insurance on the two finishes. Them two component a 6.2-inch show with an indent on their temple. Be that as it may, the Zenfone 5z has a superior and more minimized frame factor in contrast with the OnePlus 6, which is a smidgen more extensive. Accordingly, it’s less demanding to bear the Zenfone 5z in reality, attributable to its slimmer shape and along these lines a superior hold.

Then again, the OnePlus increases a marginally better edge in the style office. The OP6 comes is unquestionably rich looking, which dons an unpretentiously bended back board. The plan without a doubt orders consideration, regardless of donning a vast restricted bezel indented show.

The Zenfone 5z could be tended to as ‘nearly noisy’ — because of the mark concentric circle outline that basically claims to a sort of buyers who get a kick out of the chance to create an impression while in nature. To put it plainly, it dons a more formal look, alongside a back outline that echoes Apple’s iPhone X. Be that as it may, the plan feels somewhat dated when contrasted with the more adjusted OnePlus 6.


As expressed, both the cell phones sport a comparable measured 6.2-inch show. Be that as it may, the OnePlus 6 depends on an Optic AMOLED board, while the Zenfone 5z sports an IPS LCD. The AMOLED board innovation takes into account a smaller button, while the Zenfone 5z needs to manage with a marginally bigger jaw to suit show chips for the LCD.

With regards to picture quality however, them two can trade fire. The OnePlus 6’s AMOLED show renders inky blacks with dynamic hues and differentiations. The review edges are wide, yet AMOLED boards don’t figure out how to give satisfactory daylight clarity.

This is the place the Zenfone 5z’s LCD board sparkles out, conveying an equivalent measure of decipherability in many conditions. ASUS has changed it astonishingly to render punchy hues and energetic complexities. With the assistance of AI, ASUS has likewise prepared in extra highlights, for example, auto shading temperature and Smart Screen On highlight to upgrade the client’s survey involvement.


Both the leaders can without much of a stretch be named as ‘total brutes’ with regards to execution. Regardless of anyway you spec them, both component a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip matched with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of locally available capacity. In any case, while the OP is constrained to the capacity you purchase, the Zenfone offers a half breed SIM opening with stipend for capacity development of up to 512GB, which is an extraordinary esteem include for a purchaser.

The two telephones likewise run their own particular tweaked variants of Android Oreo. In any case, the distinction lies in the approach of the UI — OnePlus’ Oxygen OS is quite near a no-trick and close stock Android though ASUS’ ZenUI attempts to rethink how an Android telephone’s interface could be (better).

As we have expressed in our survey, the Oxygen OS on OnePlus 6 is conceivably extraordinary compared to other custom emphasess of Android we have ever observed. Engineers at OnePlus do contribute a great deal of time to guarantee a quick UI without losing any its moderate interest. Likewise, bloatware is relatively unimportant.

ZenUI, then again, conveys every one of the tricks to make for an extraordinary affair which clients for the most part like to have. ASUS has prepared in a man-made reasoning (AI) into relatively every niche and corner of the ZenUI, consequently making it an OS that is anything but difficult to-use for a customer on an everyday premise. In any case, the UI’s style may not be as engaging a couple. The numerous cell phone clients we know have a blended response towards UIs — while some incline toward stock, others adored the customisable choices offered by the UI. So the individuals who don’t care for jumbled interfaces, favored the OP approach, while a few of us recognized the extra customisations as ‘helpful’.

In spite of the distinctions, both the cell phones are certainly exceptionally quick — on account of the SD845 + 6/8GB RAM. Regardless of whether you are tossing numerous applications together or exchanging between asset escalated gaming titles, you can expect easy execution, with no of them breaking into a perspiration. Engineered benchmarks uncover that the OP6 takes higher ground over the Zenfone 5z — on account of the substantially lighter Oxygen OS. Antutu continued tossing a normal score of 281,000 on the OnePlus 6, which is marginally higher than the Zenfone 5z’s normal score of 261,000. In any case, these are manufactured scores all things considered and can’t come close to the genuine true execution totally. Be that as it may, in genuine situations, both the Zenfone 5z and the OP6 produce relatively indistinguishable execution to the exposed eye. You can scarcely differentiate as to which one is quicker than the other.


Where the Zenfone 5z takes a considerable lead over the OnePlus 6 is the sound division — ASUS has furnished the 5z with a large group of committed sound rigging to keep audiophiles upbeat. The Zenfone 5z highlights Hi-Res sound with 192kHz/24-bit standard with the assistance of Qualcomm’s.’ Audio CODEC and AudioWizard. The sound additionally gloats of DTS (Digital Theater System) Headphone:X 7.1 virtual encompass sound for earphone bolster. Notwithstanding when you are in no state of mind to connect to the earphones, the Zenfone 5z’s 5-magnet stereo speakers complete a genuinely not too bad employment than the OP6’s single partner. Then again, the OnePlus 6 does not have anything to gloat about here. At long last, the two handsets give AptX over Bluetooth to prevalent BT sound execution with perfect gadgets. An extra favorable position that an ASUS telephone gives is a packaged Hi-Res headset, where OnePlus does not package any earphones.


The OnePlus 6 offers its now-famous Face Unlock include for the second time in succession after the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus has been known to have the quickest face opening systems in the business, which is without a doubt genuine. The framework works consummately in most lighting conditions. Notwithstanding when it goes dim, the assistive lighting serves to a degree to open the telephone by utilizing the show as a light source. It may not be as helpful as other face open frameworks depending on infrared sensors, however it does the activity extremely well. Actually, you will only from time to time utilize the unique finger impression sensor for opening the telephone — certainty.

The Zenfone 5z likewise includes a comparative programming helped confront opening framework. Be that as it may, dissimilar to the OP6, the Zenfone 5z isn’t as quick, even in customary lighting conditions. Tragically, when in darker conditions, it totally comes up short. The show lighting is absent here, which could most likely advantage the 5z clients. In the long run, you wind up utilizing the unique finger impression sensor relatively unfailingly.


This is the place things get intriguing — both game double back cameras. The OnePlus 6 has a 16MP+20MP sensor twosome with a typical f/1.7 opening, while the Zenfone 5z displays a 12MP+8MP double camera setup. The auxiliary camera on the OP goes for better low-light execution, while the opponent uses it for wide-edge shots.

To the bare eye, the OnePlus 6’s outcomes do have a slight edge over that of the Zenfone 5z’s. Pictures taken from the OP6 are really near the regular tones, with satisfactory measures of differentiation and subtle elements. Low-light photographs have a tendency to contain a considerable measure of light, with a negligible misfortune in points of interest. Generally speaking, shutterbugs would be content with the OP6’s optics.

The Zenfone 5z depends intensely on AI to improve the shots. Along these lines, to influence them to look great (naturally), the AI calculation kicks in to knock up the hues and the shine visible to everyone. Be that as it may, we noticed that once you get into the shade, photographs have a tendency to get overexposed and demonstrate a decent lot of clamor as well. Comparative is the situation, particularly in low light. Notwithstanding, with manual mode, you take more control over the inherent AI to make your shots commendable. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you incline toward (AI) upgrading the photographs previously examination, at that point the 5z wouldn’t be a mistake.
