OnePlus 6T vs Galaxy S9 vs Pixel 3 XL: Specs comparison
OnePlus 6T has just been unveiled as the company's latest attempt at taking the Android scene by storm, and from the looks of it, it covers all the necessary requirements to do just that. The latest episode of the "never-settling" saga is not just another iterative mid-year release that slightly improves the hardware and slaps a new color option on the device, but a rather important release that overhauls the design and tries to bring in-displays fingerprint scanners to yet another large swath of users around the globe.

Being another aggressively-priced device that will most certainly end up on many people's wishlists for this holiday season, the OnePlus 6T will have to battle with devices like the Galaxy S9+ and the Pixel 3 XL for a place in consumers' pockets. All armed with rather similar top-end hardware, the final deciding factors will most certainly end up being both the pricing and the availability of each particular device.

Still, it's rather important to compare the hardware prowess of all three devices and see which one would net the most bang for the buck. Is it the OnePlus 6T... or not? Let's explore.
