The OnePlus 5 and HTC One X10 are both high-end smartphones set to be released this year and are said to be simply amazing based on the recent rumors, leaks and reports. However, though both devices do carry some heavy powered specs and cool features, it's hard not to point out that the One Plus 5 offers way better than the HTC One X10. With that being said, let me try to convince you as to why the OnePlus 5 is the better phone.

The Design

Apparently, the OnePlus 5 is said to feature an aluminum-curved body with a unique design. Given that recent reports did say "with a unique design" instead of a design similar to the OnePlus 3T, one can't help to be excited if this rumor was true - not to mention that the OnePlus 3T itself didn't look bad either in my personal opinion.

As for the HTC One X10 a supposedly "leaked image" of the HTC One X10 has been reported. The device is said to feature a metal unibody design, a fingerprint scanner below its rear camera and capacitive keys on the front for its home button, recent key and back key.

The Display

The OnePlus 5 features a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display with a 4k resolution, which is so far the highest in smartphones. Not only that, the said device is also reported to allow 3D streaming videos designed with the latest 3D technology. Meanwhile, the HTC One X10 is reported to have a Full-HD 5.5-inch display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Compare both of them; it is clear as day that the OnePlus 5 has the better rumored screen specifications.

The Platform

The OnePlus 5 is said to run on the latest Android and will be packed with a Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked at 3.2 GHz. On the other hand, the HTC One X10 is to be powered by an Octa-core MediaTek Mt6755/C processor clocked at 1.9 GHz and equipped with a Mali T860GPU. Again, when compared to each other, the OnePlus 5 is way more powerful.

The Internal Memory

The OnePlus 5 is rumored to have either 126 or 256 GB of internal memory storage with 8 GB of RAM. As for the HTC One X10, it is reported to only feature 32 GB with 3 GB of RAM. For this round, the OnePlus 5 is yet again more powerful.

The Camera

The OnePlus 5 is reported to have a 22 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera. Regarding its rumored features, the camera specs of the OnePlus 5 will have autofocus laser, camera sensor and retina eye scanner. Meanwhile, the HTC One X10 is said to come with a 16.3 MP rear camera and a 7.9 MP front camera.

Speaking of cameras, HTC One X10 actually has the upperhand, at least for me. The thing with high MP cameras is that though they can deliver a better quality output, it suffers in low light conditions. This is because that smartphones don't have that large space to fit all those MPs into that tiny little space allocated for the rear and front camera lens.

The Battery

The OnePlus 5 is expected to house a battery capacity between 3,500 and 4,200 mAh, capable of charging from zero to 60 percent within an hour, and wireless charging. It is also rumored to have an operating time of more than 18 hours even with its 3G or 4G data connectivity is enabled. In the case of the HTC One X10, this device is said to be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.
