OnePlus 3 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus: specs comparison

The OnePlus 3 has gone official with a flare yesterday, and despite it rocking a price that's nearly half that of the iPhones and Galaxies of this world, it aims to play on an equal field with all of them.

After all, it's got the same high-end Snapdragon 820 system chip as the Galaxy S7 Edge, and even 50% more RAM than the twice as expensive Samsung flagship.

What about the rest of the specs, though? And how does it compare against the most popular large phone out there, the Apple iPhone 6s Plus?

We break it down in our detailed specs comparison table below:

Specs, of course, don't tell the whole story as there is more to the actual experience than just technical details, but it's still a large part of the picture. And it's quite impressive that the OnePlus 3 manages to deliver often better specs than its costlier rivals.

But then, they added Motion Photos for the S7E too ... I'd rather put the use of Metal and Vulkan api there!

What is really telling when comparing these specs is the size and weight. The iPhone is huge and heavy while packing in far less. One of the major reasons it is a failed out of date design

will Samsung dominate in this unique smartphone race, not really sure, as Samsung is dropping its own Flat version of note, as there wont be any note 7 edge. Instead there will be Note 7 which will be blessed with the dual-edge screen.​est-rumours.html
