We were able to check out the new device ahead of time, so we were excited to see it. We thought we'd compare the 10T to the Pro Max to see how it stacks up.Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.
The new Sony IMX766 sensor with optical image stabilization is included in the triple-lens rear camera system of the 10T. A 2-megapixel macro lens is also included in the package. Most triple-lens camera systems have a telephoto lens, but that's not the case with the OnePlus system.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max is equipped with Wide, Ultra Wide, and Telephoto lens, all of which have 12MP cameras.
If you want to see the raw, unedited photos from each camera, you need to watch our video so you can see how the 50-megapixel lens compares to the 12-megapixel lens. The two phones output images that are similar in quality, despite the fact that the OnePlus 10T has a higher number of cameras.
The images from the OnePlus 10T seem to be washed out and have less texture than those from the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The A15 chip in the iPhone 13 Pro Max does a great job of preserving texture and detail.
There's a feature on the 10T that improves contrast between the foreground and background lighting, and it can be seen in the images. You may not notice a lot of difference between the images in the video and the ones in the iPhone, even though the iPhone doesn't offer ultra high quality images.
The overall look is slightly different because of differences in software, but portrait mode and night mode work well on both phones. The capture of 4K video is the same as the capture of 4K video on the iPhone.
With most modern phones, choosing between photos comes down to personal preference, because the quality is almost the same and the software plays a large role in how photos turn out. Do you like the images from the 10T? We want to know in the comments.
