The OnePlus 10 Pro is the most powerful flagship launched in 2022 now. With its amazing specs sheet, it offers all the best you can expect from a 2022 phone without compromises.

I love the curved screen of the OnePlus 10 Pro, but the iconic design of the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max and its amazing build quality make it more interesting when it comes to aesthetics. The iPhone has a thinner body with a thickness of 7.7 mm and a 20 percent smaller notch if compared to the previous generations, as well as those trending flat borders which inspired several other brands. Further, it comes with a glass back protected by Ceramic Shield and an awesome stainless steel frame. Last but not least, it is waterproof with the IP68 certifications (up to 6 meters deep for 30 minutes), while the OnePlus 10 Pro lacks an IP certification.
On the paper, the OnePlus 10 Pro looks to have better display specifications. Its panel is able to show up to one billion colors with a 10-bit color depth, it has a high Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 3216 pixels, the HDR10+ certification, the LTPO 2.0 enabling an adaptive refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz, and an in-display fingerprint reader. However, the image quality of the iPhone 13 Pro Max and its color reproduction are so impressive that it reaches the OnePlus 10 Pro even though the specifications on the paper seem inferior. The iPhone lacks an in-display fingerprint reader but it relies on an even safer authentication method: 3D facial recognition powered by Face ID.
Specs & Software
Both these devices will give you amazing performances, the max you can get with each operating system. However, the power users might notice that the iPhone 13 Pro Max is a bit faster and more stable: the merit goes to the iOS operating system and its amazing stabilization. The iPhone 13 Pro Max gets just 6 GB of RAM, but its multi-tasking performance is comparable to the OnePlus 10 Pro thanks to iOS. However, you will notice these small differences only in the most demanding usage scenarios: you would better focus on the other specifications because performance is very high on both these devices.
With normal photos and videos, the iPhone 13 Pro Max should give you better image quality. It sports a 12 MP main camera, a 12 MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom, and an ultrawide camera with the same 12 MP resolution. On the other hand, the OnePlus 10 Pro provides better zoom capabilities thanks to an 8 MP telephoto sensor with 3.3x optical zoom and better ultrawide shots thanks to a 50 MP ultrawide camera with 150° FOV.
Despite having a smaller battery, the iPhone 13 Pro Max provides a longer battery life in a lot of scenarios thanks to the optimization provided by iOS. But the OnePlus 10 Pro supports faster charging technologies: 80W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
The OnePlus 10 Pro has a starting price tag of about €650/$738 in the Chinese market, while we still do not know how much it will cost in the global market. You need €1250/$1418 to purchase the iPhone 13 Pro Max in China. While the iPhone is definitely the winner of this comparison, the OnePlus flagship has a significantly higher value for money.
