Our thoughts

Both the OnePlus 7 and Xiaomi Mi 9 are superb bang-for-the-buck offerings under PHP 30K.

If you are looking for a device with three rear cameras, better selfies, wireless charging, and a slightly more affordable price tag, Mi 9T could be the best pick.

But, if you want a phone with a larger battery capacity

If you are looking for a bigger battery, slightly bigger screen, faster storage, stereo speakers with a comparable performance then get the OnePlus 7.
