OnePlus 5 vs. iPhone 7 Plus – Chose The Best One
If you’re a tech enthusiast and also like to keep up with new smartphone launches, then you already know that OnePlus finally set the date for the launch of their new flagship phone, the OnePlus 5. CEO Pete Lau even tweeted about it, so it’s for real this time. And the date also came and passed, so now the OnePlus 5 is officially on the market.
Naturally, comparisons quickly were born, especially between it and Apple’s iPhone line, in particular the newest devices on it, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Today we’re taking a look at the OnePlus 5 compared to the iPhone 7 Plus. Are they really that similar? Let’s find out.
In a previous article, we mentioned that even though the OnePlus 5 and the original iPhone 7 look mostly the same, the OnePlus actually reminds us more of the iPhone 7 Plus due to its dual lens rear camera. While we still hold that to be true, it’s worth mentioning that the iPhone 7 Plus naturally feels a lot more high end as far as materials and overall sleek and elegant design go, and that’s simply because it is a higher end phone.
When we talk hardware and specs is when the real fun begins. The two devices couldn’t be more different from this perspective. The OnePlus 5 runs on 8GB of RAM and a octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, while the iPhone 7 Plus has only 3GB of RAM and runs on an Apple-made A10 Fusion processor that has four cores. However, even if the OnePlus 5 sounds more powerful in theory, we all know that iPhones are some of the most powerful devices on the market in spite of the fact that they always have small amounts of RAM.
