The OnePlus 10T and the Asus Zenfone 9 are two new flagships on the market. While one is a maxed-out flagship, the other has a compact form factor.

The OnePlus 10T and the Zenfone 9 are the latest flagships to hit the market, but which one is the best? To recall, the last 'T' series smartphone by OnePlus came out in 2020, called the OnePlus 8T. However, due to the global chip shortage and supply chain issues during the pandemic, the company skipped OnePlus 9T. Nevertheless, the OnePlus 10T has slightly improved specs over the OnePlus 10 Pro, released earlier this year.

Talking about the Zenfone 9, it comes as the successor to the Zenfone 8 released last year with Snapdragon 888 5G chipset and a 64MP primary camera. In the world of large-screen smartphones, the Zenfone 9 brings flagship-grade specifications to a compact design. But does it have enough to compete with the OnePlus 10T? Let's find out.

OnePlus 10T Vs. Zenfone 9: Performance And Cameras

The OnePlus 10T and Zenfone 9 come with the same Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, the latest and fastest chipset available for Android smartphones. Further, both smartphones offer up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage and have a cooling system. Hence, smartphones can handle everything that comes their way, including multitasking, gaming and editing.

Talking about the cameras, both feature the 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor as their primary sensor, which is also present on the Nothing Phone (1).

For its size, the Zenfone 9 has a large 4,300 mAh battery, whereas the OnePlus 10T has a 4,800 mAh battery. However, the charging rate on the Zenfone is not even close to the 150w SUPERVOOC charging on the OnePlus 10T. If someone wants a water-resistant phone, the Zenfone 9 with an IP65/IP68 rating is the way to go, as the OnePlus 10T has an IP54 rating.
