I need to laugh when someone says the OP5 is better because it's faster. It has worst camera, it doesn't have expandable storage, it doesn't have IP68 and it has worst screen... Do you really think it's best just because it takes 0.2 secs less to open an app???
AnonD-3124, 29 Jun 2017The best among these three is the SG S8(+). Whatever you do with this phone, you could never g... moredisplay with 1440p? it would be better for vr and you can change the resolution of the s8 screen in settings if u dont want 1440p. 1440p drain battery, not much for s8, tests shown that battery life for 1440p and 1080p is very much close and barely any difference.
Stereo speakers? its basically based on personal preference if you use your phone speakers more often its good to have. unless you dont use speakers often and only use headphone jack then single firing speakers is your way to go.
Picture quality, yep i would agree with you, oneplus just didnt have OIS if not it would be much better for videos. Pictures are okay but nt better than s8
Oneplus seriously have to work on their after sales service. Would you want a fast repair of your phone if anything happens?Oneplus sucks at this. I last time use a oneplus 3, as my friends recommended me to try oneplus. Guess what, 4+ months my phones suddenly restarts randomly by itself. took 2months to reach them and to get my phone fixed, that's not the end, after a few weeks of usage, the same problem happened and sent for repair again.Idk why, but this time it took 4months for them to reply back. Other than that issue im facing with my oneplus 3, everything was smooth. After this experience from oneplus, i will never buy oneplus again due to their bad customer service.
That is why i recently bought an samsung s8.
I wouldnt want to pay for a phone that takes so long to get repaired if anything happens to your phone.
Romie Lee, 29 Jun 2017But G6 isn't a flagship though considering its soc.But OP5 is not flagship considering no water resistance, QHD display etc...
AnonD-680674, 28 Jun 2017you cannot compare a product which costs 500 with a product which costs 700 plusThat is right , except in Europe OP5 costs 500 Euros and GS8 costs 580Euros and considering 64GB is not enough at all this days, with 4K and lossless photo - OP5 128GB costs only 20Euros less with its 560Euros. For only 20 Euros more you will get free headphones and Samsung service. Even forgetting all the features OP5 lacks it loses big time.
Galaxy S8/S8+ vs LG G6 vs Xperia XZ Premium vs Mi 6 vs Huawei P10/P10+ vs U 11 vs OnePlus 5
Battle of Q1 2017 burdens! Make it happen, please!
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2017Lowlight ISO use: Iphone ISO100 Samsung ISO200 Oneplus ISO2000... No OIS big fail, the... moreIt not matters much if processing is of premium quality, even with high iso and shutterspeed you still can get better results(U11, Pixel), but... it depends on size of sensor, 7plus got the same as in G6, 1/3". Of course S8 and OP5 are not very good examples to see difference.
Great 3-way contest. Out of the 3, I feel the S8 (or better, the S8+) would be the best option as it gets the most balanced, consistent results.
i love my s8, but the fingerprint scanner is too slow.
my previous phone's scanner, Xiami redmi 4 prime, was much faster.
one plus 5 has the same Super Amoled display as S5, but with some colors tweak by one plus. technically it's lower resolution than 1080P iPhone 7 plus IPS.
Am a real iPhone fan but when it comes to performance away from paper, I recommend checking Phonebuff on YouTube pitting the OnePlus 5 Against the iPhone 7 Plus.
The best among these three is the SG S8(+). Whatever you do with this phone, you could never go wrong with it. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, i think it should've been the best if it is not for the compromises Apple gives. And for the Oneplus 5, as usual, raw power is at its peak together with some cheats! They brainwash people by overclocking their chipsets and presenting a more powerful benchmark charts. But nowadays, the difference right now is actually so marginal that you would not give it much thought unlike the past years. Samsung for the win!
- Sound... Why do you care about stereo speakers? Sound coming out of a phone always sounds awful anyway. Only real option is to use headphones. Even if the sound was good, you would not get any of the positional benefits of stereo with speakers so close together so why do you care? If it's about loudness and SnR than you chose the wrong winner. Much more important would be who has a headphone jack.
- Picture quality... I can't say anything about sharpness, but seriously, every single picture taken with the iPhone except for the one with the red flowers looks inferior to me. Pinkish skies?
- Display... why is 1440p so important on such a small screen? Anything beyond 300 dpi becomes exponentially harder to tell apart from a resolution standpoint, so why do you want a screen that does nothing for you other than consume more battery and take longer to render frames?
The only argument that holds water for me here is price. I think that, apart from the camera, the 1+5 cut exactly on the things it should have to bring it's price down... except it didn't bring it down enough and that's the crux of it.
"But throw the platform argument out the window, and the price difference is hard to justify."
Not an Apple fanboy and I realize that the hardware/price ratio is well overrated but denying the OS value in the mix is like saying "A Porsche is going from A to B the same way a Dodge Neon would, so the price difference from the engine, refinement and etc is not justified". (Not a Porsche fan either, but it speaks to itself). People who buy iPhone, they buy it for the OS mainly, the hardware is the cherry on the cake. Power users know what they want and will buy accordingly to their needs. It's like a Gaming PC and an iMac, same price tag but huge performance difference... different needs.
The best value phone of the three is:
Samsung Galaxy S8.
It has the best design, it has the best screen, and it has plenty of camera and hardware performance and features. Even with its RRP it wins this roundup. The three big detriments to the S8 are: software updates, lack of front stereo speakers, janky iris/fingerprint security.
The runner up winner/silver goes to:
Apple iPhone 7 Plus
Hardware and feature-wise it is in the middle of the pact. Though it is very polished, and a phone that is poised to stay relevant longer than any of the other designs, thanks in part to Apple's commitment to quick updates, long service period, and attention to detail. The ecosystem really wins over this one. The biggest detriment to the iPhone is: price, lack of aux port, and OS (we're still waiting for Drag/Drop File Manager, and a Default Task chooser).
Hardware and feature-wise it is running last, but not far from the competitors. Where it falls flat is the little-to-no support you have for the handset. Based on such, its not as a good value as the iPhone 7 Plus... the iPhone is more expensive, but is worth it, in comparison because its ecosystem is strong. When compared to the slightly more expensive S8, the 1+5 looks even worse, offering much less handset for almost the same price.
8 > 7 > 6 (1+5).
Though let's see what the next ZTE Axon 8, Google Pixel XL2, and iPhone 8 have to offer.
