The founders of OnePlus used to say they only make flagship phones, but since the introduction of the R and the RT series, OnePlus seems to be focusing more and more on budget products.
The design of the OnePlus ACE is based on the Realme GT Neo while today’s Racing Edition is an appearance replacement edition for the OPPO K10. It’s hard to notice the difference between them in terms of parameters, but over the appearance, they have a very similar back cover and are made of the exact same material. This plastic material with a matte finish can be very effective in preventing fingerprints, but may not be conducive to heat dissipation, which we will verify later in the gaming test.
The OnePlus ACE Racing Edition has a 1080P 120Hz LCD screen. As a result, it has a wider chin, as well as wider screen bezels, and a larger hole-punch front camera. And the in-screen fingerprint recognition has been also replaced by a side recognition button serving as a fingerprint reader.
Performance & Benchmarks
OnePlus ACE Racing Edition comes with the enhanced Dimensity 8100 max chipset. PUBG has not yet been optimized on the OnePlus ACE Racing Edition. We are only able to run the game at the maximum framerate of 40fps with HDR graphic settings. Obviously, it’s far too easy for the Dimensity chipset.
The Ace Racing is weaker in terms of camera configuration compared to OnePlus ACE, and the main camera doesn’t support OIS, although its target group probably doesn’t care much about taking photos, here we still want to show you the camera comparison between these two phones.
Compared to the OnePlus ACE, the Racing Edition’s main camera has a similar dynamic range and detail performance, but the colors are lighter than the OnePlus ACE and the view angle is a bit smaller. The ultra-wide-angle lens performs similarly, with the OnePlus ACE having a wider view angle and more vibrant colors.
Battery Life & Charging
OnePlus ACE Racing Edition packs a 5000 mAh battery that supports up to 65W of fast charging. In the first 30 minutes it charged to 71%, but after that, it took 22 minutes to get fully charged.
