OnePlus has just presented its new flagship for this 2018, the OnePlus 6 . The new device of a Chinese brand that is becoming increasingly popular. Mainly for its competitive prices that make it one of the Android terminals with the best value for money.
In new OnePlus 6 comes with a renewed design with a screen that practically covers the entire front, very much like the iPhone X. It also includes the latest hardware developments that we can find.
Comparison: iPhone X vs OnePlus 6
OnePlus was born with the label “iPhone killer” , will this OnePlus 6 beat the flaming Apple iPhone X ?. We compare them below.
Design: notch here, notch nor there
The notch is something that we are going to have to get used to. It is without a doubt the fastest growing fashion since the launch of the iPhone X. Virtually all new high-end Android terminals now have the eyebrow .
OnePlus has also joined this trend with a notch, yes, smaller than the iPhone X. Although it must be said in favor of the Apple terminal that the Chinese does not have an advanced facial recognition system.
In the back, OnePlus has left behind aluminum and has also joined the fashion of glass . Much more elegant, although more fragile. In this sense it is similar to the iPhone X.
Even if we have a smaller notch, we see that in the lower part there is still a frame a little bigger than the lateral ones . This is something that Apple solves better with the iPhone X, since the minimum frames are constant. For that reason we give the iPhone X as the winner.
Screen: adjusting the edges
Both devices have screens with OLED technology . The OnePlus 6 has a diagonal that goes up to 6.28 inches. The iPhone X is left with a more manageable 5.8.
Looking at the numbers, we have that the Chinese terminal has a screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. The Apple device reaches 2436 x 1125. This causes us to find a higher pixel density in the Super Retina HD screen of the iPhone X.
All the analyzes indicate that the OnePlus 6 screen is excellent. But it does not reach the quality offered by Apple in its flagship. One of the best in the market . So again point for Apple.
Hardware: the best of the best
In new OnePlus 6 comes with several hardware options available. We can choose between 6 and 8 GB of RAM. An incredible amount We also have the most powerful Qualcomm processor today, the Snapdragon 845 .
On the iPhone side we have the A11 Bionic, the most powerful processor right now . To which the Snapdragon 845 has not managed to overcome. As for RAM, the iPhone X comes with 3GB. Loses in the comparison, but they are enough for iOS.
Here you could talk about a technical draw. Both are very powerful and able to move their operating systems with ease .
Cameras: the double camera is here to stay
Another of the characteristics practically required of a terminal top of range at present is the double camera. The OnePlus 6 has a double lens signed by Sony . These cameras are 16 and 20 MP, both with lenses with aperture f1.7.
The iPhone X on the other hand has two sensors of 12 MP with aperture f1.8 and 12 MP with aperture f2.4. It also has an image stabilizer.
There is still a lack of evidence to know which sensor makes better photographs. But remember that the iPhone X camera is one of the best on the market . So the OnePlus 6 will have a hard time to get over it.
Price: the big difference
If there’s one thing that the OnePlus 6 wins by a landslide, it ‘s in the price. The Chinese brand always achieves very attractive and adjusted prices. It is difficult to defend the price of the iPhone X, although there are some offers, has an official price that starts at 1159 euros.
In the new OnePlus 6 it is already on sale , and the 64 GB model can be purchased for just over 500 euros . The 256 GB model can be purchased for 619 euros. So there is no doubt who has won in this regard.
