OnePlus 6T vs Pixel 3: the "flagship killer" kills another flagship

OnePlus 6T vs Pixel 3: the "flagship killer" kills another flagship
With the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, you get the "stock Android experience", the way Google wants you to get it. Pure, snappy, fast, with advanced Google Assistant features, and timely updates both in terms of security patches and major Android builds for the next 3 years. To top it off, they take pretty awesome pictures, thanks to Google's HDR+ technologies.

You know what's not cool about it? A $800 starting price and a very controversial notch on the Pixel 3 XL variant. Still, these things can be overlooked — it just depends on how much you like the Pixel phones.

But it's a bit hard to swallow those pills when you know you have the OnePlus 6T just at an arm's reach. It is a serious contender, built with premium materials, snappy fast, near-stock Android UI, and all the up-to-date hardware. Hey, it's even the first phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner to be officially sold in the US! And it starts at $550.

So, we asked... which of these would you buy? It seems the Pixel 3 might have a bad time...

Google Pixel 3 / XL vs OnePlus 6T

Pixel 3 or XL for sure. Nobody does it like Google!
OnePlus 6T, that's an easy choice...
