The Design

Within this group, the realme 10 Pro+ 5G distinguishes itself with its vegan leather back design, which lends it a premium look and feel. As for the OPPO Reno10 5G, and HONOR 90 5G, they all have a glass back plate with interesting designs. When it comes to front glass protection, it’s worth noting that the OPPO Reno 10 is the only smartphone in the group that features Asahi Glass AGC DT-Star2, providing an extra layer of durability and protection for the display. Other than that there is no more other protection like IP rating for all the rest.

The Display and Speakers

All of these smartphones feature a 6.7-inch 120Hz HDR10+ AMOLED curved display, providing users with a similar display experience across the board. However, only the HONOR 90 5G and realme 11 Pro+ 5G have TUV Rheinland certification which boasts eye care features. The highest display resolution goes to HONOR 90 5G having 2664 x 1200 pixels and a pixel density of 435 ppi. Besides that, it also gives an option for changing display resolutions on its display setting.

When it comes to their speakers, all of them have stereo speakers except for the HONOR 90 5G, which uses only a down-firing speaker.

The Performances

In terms of processing power and GPU capabilities among these smartphones, the HONOR 90 5G takes the lead with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Accelerated Edition chipset, showcasing strong performance and graphics processing capabilities. Next in line, we have a tie between the OPPO Reno10 5G and the realme 10 Pro+ 5G, both of which use the same MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset.

For memory and storage, the HONOR 90 5G and realme 10 Pro+ 5G are the compelling options as they have 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. As for OPPO Reno10 5G even if it is only 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, you can insert a MicroSD for additional storage.

The Camera

In the meantime, we will be evaluating the camera megapixels as we are still preparing to release a camera showdown for this group. The highest megapixels for the rear main camera goes to HONOR 90 5G and realme 11 Pro+ 5G which has 200 megapixels. However, the best camera configuration in the group in my opinion is the OPPO Reno10 5G because it offers three usable rear cameras compared to others. The Telephoto camera that the OPPO Reno10 5G has really provides value.

Just stay tuned on the release of our camera showdown on this group so we can really see which is better in this department.

The Battery

They all have 5000mAh battery capacity. As for the fastest charging speed, it goes to the realme 11 Pro+ 5G as it can charge up to 100W. For the rest, they are the almost same speed of 66W for the HONOR 90 5G and 67W for the OPPO Reno10 5G.

The Price

All of them are priced under Php 25k which are great deals with the specs they carry. Yet the OPPO Reno10 5G is the cheapest in the group priced at Php 23,999.
