Another unique edition dedicated to a car manufacturer is formal: it is OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, and it joins a niche of premium devices which is evoking customers every working day more. Bellow will compare it with two other special editions: Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition and Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition. Are they value the money? Let’s find out!
If we exclude about companies’ customizations for these special editions and we only consider the native design, Oppo Find X is definitely the greatest beautiful and innovative device. Obviously, it is the first smartphone with a motorized slider and a screen-to-body ratio close to 100 percent without the require of a notch. Whenever it comes to customizations, the one of Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition intrigues me extra because of its back made of genuine leather and glass.
Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design vs OnePlus 6T McLaren vs Oppo Find X Lamborghini Hardware specification
The screen with the highest quality is the AMOLED panel found on the Huawei Mate 20, with a higher resolution than its challengers and a more proper color reproduction. It has a larger notch, but it boasts a 3D facial recognition system. Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition and OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition function a exact same display quality, but, even though OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is the only with a notch, we find it much better due to the fact of its Gorilla Glass 6 protection for the front glass and good DCI-P3 coverage.
There are no consistent contrasts in performances when it comes to these three devices, but Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition has a a bit improved SoC: the new Kirin 980 realized with a 7 nm production process which is able to provide a very high speed and higher scores on benches. OnePlus 6T McLaren comes with 10 GB of RAM, but a better chipset is certainly more important. At last, Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition is the only to feature an expandable memory. So we would choose it for its hardware. The software is very nice in each case: Android Pie out of the box with very efficient customizations.
Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition has the best camera department of 2018. It is the same as Huawei P20 Pro with a rear triple camera and a 40 MP resolution for the main sensor. Until now, no device has been in a position to compete with the superb photo quality bundled by this triple camera in every scenario. At the second place, we can undoubtedly put the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition with its f/1.7 aperture for both the sensors of its dual camera, but it is a lot inferior to Huawei’s flagship.
Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition ships with the biggest battery as well as the longest battery life. OnePlus 6T McLaren is at the second place with its one-day battery life, while Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition has the smallest battery but it charges faster than each of its opponents: it is able to achieve 100 percent of charge in just 30 minutes. We would pick Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design due to the fact the battery life is far more important than quick charging, plus, Huawei’s flagship is the only smartphone in the market to support wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Given that these are special editions, these products are way costlier than their standard variants. When it comes to specifications, Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design Edition is the best device of the trio and it costs EUR1600/$1800, Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition is the less attractive for me (unless you are Lamborghini fans or innovative designs lovers) with a price tag of EUR1700/$1920, a worse camera and a shorter battery life, while OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is the one with the best value for money as it costs just EUR700/$700.
