According to us, Oppo Reno3 Pro has undoubtedly the most attractive design. First of all, it is thinner and lighter, one of the thinnest smartphones to feature a battery with a capacity above 4000 mAh. Further, it has an almost totally clean rear side since all the elements of the camera are included in the camera module and there is an in-display fingerprint reader. The phone also comes with a punch-hole display and a very high screen-to-body ratio. While Oppo Reno3 Pro is the most attractive, Huawei Nova 6 looks like the most original with its “Nova” pattern on its glass back.
The most amazing screen belongs to the Oppo Reno3 Pro. It is the only device of this trio to feature a display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Further, it is HDR-compliant and it has a high DCI P3 coverage. The silver medal goes to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite that is the only affordable flagship to support the S Pen, great for productivity users. Huawei Nova 6 has an IPS panel, it is not a bad display but it offers nothing special, just an average screen like the ones you can find on a lot of mid-range smartphones.
Huawei Nova 6 wins the hardware comparison thanks to its Kirin 990 chipset: the latest flagship SoC from Huawei built at 7 nm. The device also comes in a variant with 5G connectivity. The Oppo Reno3 Pro comes right after with a Snapdragon 765G chipset paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite still comes with high-end hardware, but not at the same level as its rivals. On the other hand, it is the only to support micro SD. In each case, you get Android 10 out of the box with a customized user interface.
In order to give you a definitive opinion, we have to test each camera department of this trio. Unfortunately Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite just debuted, so we had no chance to test its camera performances. On the paper, Oppo Reno3 Pro looks more gorgeous with its 48 MP quad-camera, but Huawei Nova 6 is a valid opponent with its 40 MP triple camera and an ultrawide dual front camera.
The bigger 4500 mAh battery on board of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite will surely provide a longer battery life than both Huawei Nova 6 and Oppo Reno3. But Huawei Nova 6 has a way faster charging technology (70 percent in just 30 minutes).
Huawei Nova 6 (without 5G) is sold for about €380/$421 in its base variant in India, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite costs about €494/$548, and Oppo Reno3 Pro is rumored to launch in India next month with a €545/$605 price tag. While Oppo Reno3 Pro looks like a more refined choice, Huawei Nova 6 offers a higher value for money, while Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite may be better for productivity and power users due to the S Pen and a longer-lasting battery.
