Our thoughts


Both the Nova 5T and OnePlus 7 are superb bang-for-the-buck offerings with one under PHP 20K while the other is under PHP 30K.

If you are looking for a device with four rear cameras, better selfies, flagship features, a bigger battery, faster charging and a more affordable price tag, Nova 5T could be the best pick.

If you are looking for a slightly bigger screen, slightly better CPU and GPU, faster storage, stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos then get the OnePlus 7.

It could go either way depending on your preference.
