OnePlus 5T or Samsung Galaxy S9: which one would you get?

But we all know what's not great about it... that price. Unfortunately, it seems that we live in the post-$650 flagship price world, as both Sammy and Apple are pushing their price tiers up and others are following suit.
Well, with some exceptions. While small manufacturer OnePlus has been raising its prices over the years as well, its latest “flagship killer” — the OnePlus 5T — still sits at $559 — well below the S9's price tag. And it's not a device you'd smirk at either, with the Snapdragon 835 inside, a mind-boggling 8 GB of RAM, and a real pure Android experience, which solidifies an extremely snappy performance. Its camera is no slouch, too.
So, is spilling the extra $160 for a well-known brand worth it to you? Or are you increasingly considering going for a OnePlus this time around?

The S9 is much shorter, so that's my choice.

The designed language that Samsung is using really resonates with me and the features they are including really makes the Android experience that much better. I never believed I would say this but the new SE (touch-wiz) is miles ahead of stock Android( and is getting better with every version) so much so That I have had no need to root or install stock launchers since the S6. That said I must give some credit to HTC that started this trend of light but feature rich interfaces on the M7 ( man I loved that phone if only HTC had just improved the camera and drop that 4 ultra pixel nonsense and slimed the chin and forehead-oh well).

I would pick OP5T. No doubt it is more fluid, fast and smooth device. smartphone cameras are not important to me since i own Canon 760D. I give more value to the freedom to unlock the bootloader and keeping your warranty at the same time.
