OnePlus has officially launched its latest flagship, the OnePlus 10T, in India with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 triple camera and other features.
Following the launch of the OnePlus 10T, vivo’s subbrand iQoo released the iQoo 9T 5G. iQoo has the same latest snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SOC, so let us compare which phone provides the best flagship experience.
Display Comparison: OnePlus 10T vs iQoo 9T 5G
The OnePlus 10T has been launched with a 6.7-inch FHD+ 10bit fluid AMOLED screen with a 120HZ refresh rate and 950nits peak brightness with HDR10+ support, making it the best display in this budget segment in terms of watching movies.
The iQoo 9T has a 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a peak brightness of 1500nits. It also supports HDR10+. You get the best movie experience in this phone, as well as the best outdoor experience because its peak brightness is higher than that of the OnePlus 10T, so Iqoo takes the lead.
Performance comparison of the OnePlus 10T and the iQoo 9T 5G
Both phones feature the latest 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor with an Adreno 730 GPU. The OnePlus 10T comes with 16GB of LPPDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. You get a flagship experience and a smooth Android experience; it comes with Android 12 and oxygen os 12.1; and you get a clean, stock experience when it comes to gaming. The same hardware is used in the Iqoo 9T 5G, which has a large 3930mm2 vapor chamber for liquid cooling. The phone runs Android 12 with Funtouch OS, which has more quality features but also more bloatware, which is a disadvantage if you want the best clean Android flagship experience. If you want more quality Android features, go with the OnePlus 10T. Both phones score well in this performance comparison.

The OnePlus 10T has a 50MP main camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor, an OIS 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a gimmicky 2MP macro camera.
