OnePlus 10T vs Google Pixel 6 – PhoneArena
The OnePlus 10T is priced on par with the Pixel 6, skips the zoom camera just like Google’s phone, and sports a snappy and barebones Android interface, again like, you guessed it, the Pixel 6.
That is why we are pitching the new OnePlus 10T versus the “old” Google Pixel 6 to help you choose which one to get on the runup to the September release date here in the US, based on their camera, display, and processor performance benchmarks.
OnePlus 10T vs Google Pixel 6, the main differences:
- Record fast 150W wired charging on the OnePlus 10T, but no wireless charging
- The smaller Pixel 6 display has better color presentation but lower refresh rate
- Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset is faster than Google’s Tensor 1 and offers better 5G connectivity
- The OnePlus 10 comes with twice the RAM and base storage of the Pixel 6
- Two color options vs three
- 50 MP cameras, but Google is still the mobile photography boss
Design and Display Quality
The OnePlus 10T is undoubtedly the more elegant phone at the front, what with the thinner display bezels and the boxy Pixel 6 appearance. At the back, however, it’s a toss-up between the OnePlus camera island fused with the side frame and the unorthodox camera “strip” of the Pixel 6.
The Pixel’s design is a bit more comfortable to hold and use with one hand, not only because it is more compact, but also because the elevated camera strip serves as a great place to press your index finger against. The OnePlus 10T’s elevated camera area holds three cameras and a flash, while Google’s strip has two and a flash, making for a rather baren appearance in comparison.
The 10T has two color options – Moonstone Black and Jade Green – which, despite the drastic difference in texture and looks, are achieved by using a glass back. The Pixel 6, in comparison, offers three colorways – Kinda Coral, Sorta Seafoam, and Stormy Black – and is again offering a glass back which has a wireless charging coil on the inside, unlike the OnePlus 8T which only charges with the monstrous 150W brick.
We have to give it to Google and its Pixel line when it comes to display colors. While phones from the BBK holding, like those of Oppo or OnePlus, offer rare per-unit factory calibration on the high-end models for the utmost in wide gamut coverage, Google’s Pixels have perfect display calibration even towards the midrange which is currently occupied by the Pixel 6.
The Pixel 6, on the other hand, has one of the lowest Deltas we’ve measured, near-perfect white balance, and brightness on par with the OnePlus 10T, as if counterweights to the higher refresh rate of the OnePlus phone.
Performance and Software
The Pixel 6 runs on Google’s own Tensor processor, coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB of base storage. While both phones run their light Android interfaces well, the OnePlus 10T runs the most powerful Android chipset at the moment, so Google’s Tensor has a hard time catching up, especially when it comes to gaming or 5G connectivity where Qualcomm has no equal in terms of bands and filters supported.
But let’s look at the raw specs from our performance benchmarks and let them speak for themselves, especially in the 3D graphics rendering section which is important if you play a lot of games on your phone, here the 10T easily surpasses the Pixel 6:
The OnePlus 10T has a big but aesthetically pleasing camera island on the back, hosting three sensor and lense combos only one of which makes sense, the 50MP main camera with the Sony sensor. The 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro camera are compromises and seem to be there for the count.
Can Google compete with the 50MP sensor of the Pixel 6’s main camera and the 12MP of the ultrawide against the newer OnePlus 10T? It can, and then some, as you can see from the samples below.
The crowd-pleasing OnePlus camera algorithms churn out overly warm, yellowish images with unnatural contrast boost. The photos lose some details in the process, while the Pixel 6 not only manages to snap very realistic, true-to-life colors both indoors and outdoors, but also captures more detail and the images have less blur without oversharpening, and the same goes for the 4K sample videos from the two phones below.
Both the OnePlus 10T and the Pixel 6 list “dual stereo speakers” among their virtues, but it’s a single speaker augmented by using the earpiece as the other one to keep the stereo sound off-balance. The sound from both phones won’t rock your socks, especially in the lows and mids, but they are both sufficiently loud to annoy people on your morning commute still.
It’s also worth noting that the phones lack a headphone jack, so you’d have to pick your poison of USB-C headphones, or wireless ones if you don’t want to use the “stereo speakers.”
Battery Life and Charging
The OnePlus 10T’s added value is its 150W charging system that pumps its 4800 mAh dual-cell battery full of electrons for less than 20 minutes. We measured 23 minutes, to be exact, but that was from a completely depleted state, not the 1% that OnePlus measures from.
There’s no wireless charging like on the Pixel 6, but the ultrafast wired and the inclusion of its 150W brick in the box more than compensates In short, both the battery life and the charging rounds go to the OnePlus 10T here.

Conclusion: OnePlus 10T or Pixel 6, which one to buy?
While the specs of the OnePlus 10T and Google Pixel 6 are quite similar, as can be expected given their respective price category, the newer phone is definitely the faster one with its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and the 20-minute charging speed. When it comes to photography, the Pixel 6 has the upper hand, though, despite both having 50MP main cameras.
In other words, if performance while gaming, record charging speeds, and a larger display with smoother refresh rate are more important to you than better dynamic range or night colors in your photos and wireless charging, go for the OnePlus 10T which can now be ordered with a free storage upgrade to boot.

The video game industry’s annual trade show E3 is canceled again as organizers say they will ‘re-evaluate the future’ – Fortune
E3, the annual trade show of the video game industry where upcoming titles are unveiled and showcased, has been cancelled for 2023—and many observers suspect the event might finally be over for good.
The Entertainment Software Association and ReedPop, which had been hired to organize this year’s show, announced the cancellation late Thursday. The news came after a growing number of game publishers, including Microsoft, Nintendo, Ubisoft, and Tencent, announced they would not take part in E3 2023.
Both the physical and digital events were scrubbed. On the E3 Website, the two show organizers declined to address whether they would attempt another gathering next year, saying only “both parties will re-evaluate the future of E3.”
That’s a tremendous U-turn from the hyperbole of the show runners last July, when they claimed E3 2023 would set “a new benchmark for video game expos in 2023 and beyond.”

— E3 (@E3) March 30, 2023
The last physical E3 was held in 2019, where attendees were able to get their first hands-on time with Google’s Stadia cloud-streaming service and Microsoft began discussing “Project Scarlett,” which would become the Xbox Series X. (Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake earned “best of show” honors.)
The ESA cancelled the show in 2020 due to the pandemic and held a digital version in 2021 that met with mixed reactions, at best. In 2022, it once again cancelled both the digital and in person show.
While E3 is dead, the industry is still likely to unveil upcoming games over the course of the summer. Ubisoft plans to host an event (likely online) around the same mid-June time frame E3 was scheduled for. Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo will likely hold their own showcases. And Summer Game Fest, hosted by Game Awards founder Geoff Keighley, will take place on June 8 in Los Angeles.
While many in the industry are mourning the apparent death of E3, the wheels for the show’s diminishing relevancy were set into motion a decade ago. In 2013, Nintendo broke tradition and announced it would not hold its traditional pre-show press conference, opting instead to talk directly to fans via a Webcast and offering demos of unreleased games at Best Buy stores around the country in conjunction with E3.
That initial Nintendo Direct proved to be an effective way to talk directly to customers, without the filter of the media. In the years since, all of the major console manufacturers have embraced it, as have many third-party publishers, such as EA and Ubisoft.
And even in 2013, some analysts were questioning whether the show could survive.
“With the acknowledgement that most of the growth, in a general sense, in gaming is coming outside of retail, E3 is going to take another tick down,” said John Taylor, who was with Arcadia Research Corp, said at the time. “I think we’re going to start hearing discussions about how important E3 is. … It may end up being too big of a venue.”
GM is phasing out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in EVs – Yahoo News Australia
Many car makers tout smartphone connectivity as a selling point, but GM won’t in the future. In a Reuters interview, GM digital chief Edward Kummer and executive cockpit director Mike Himche say GM will phase out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with upcoming electric cars, beginning with the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV. Instead, you’ll have to rely on Android Automotive and its apps.
Users will get eight years of free Google Assistant and Google Maps use at no extra charge, GM says. The company doesn’t mention what you’ll pay if you still need those functions afterward. We’ve asked GM for comment. It will still offer CarPlay and Android Auto in combustion engine models, and you won’t lose access on existing EVs. GM plans an all-electric passenger vehicle line by 2035.
The company argues that Android Automotive provides more control over the experience. There are upcoming driver assistance technologies that are “more tightly coupled” with navigation features, Himche says, and GM doesn’t want them to require a smartphone. Kummer also acknowledged that there are “subscription revenue opportunities.” Don’t be surprised if you’re paying a recurring fee for certain features like you already do with some brands.
Android Automotive has a growing footprint. On top of GM, companies like BMW, Honda, Polestar, Stellantis, Volvo and VW are adopting it with or without Google apps. However, the platform doesn’t preclude support for CarPlay or Android Auto. GM is deliberately dropping those features. While this could lead to some innovative driver aids, it could also force you to mount your phone if there’s an app or function the EV’s infotainment system doesn’t support.
The decision is a blow to Apple. Its services may not have native support in GM EVs. The iPhone maker is also developing a next-gen CarPlay experience that can take over the entire dashboard — GM just ruled itself out as a potential customer. If Apple is going to have more control over your drive, it will have to turn to other marques.
Sega Releases Free Murder Mystery Sonic Game for April Fools’ Day – ComingSoon.net
April Fools’ Day has not yet arrived quite yet in 2023, but that hasn’t stopped Sega from celebrating. The company stealth dropped a new Sonic the Hedgehog game for free called The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog, which lets players solve, as the title says, who killed the Blue Blur.
This game is currently on Steam and takes around 70 minutes to complete. It’s a text-based adventure where players have to piece together clues and use them to prove a suspect’s alibi in order to figure out who “killed” Sonic in a Glass Onion-style murder mystery gone awry. There are also small runner levels where players control Sonic and collect rings while dodging obstacles.
Sega put out a cheeky trailer with the game, too, saying it had “heard the feedback” and was taking the franchise in a whole new direction.
