Specs comparison: OnePlus 5T vs Galaxy S8+ vs Pixel 2 XL

2

Jumping on the bezel-less trend, OnePlus just announced a new flagship device that's imbued with its hopes of becoming a slightly more affordable alternative to the top smartphones out there - the OnePlus 5T is here with a flashy 2:1 bezel-less display and a dual camera to wage war on the Galaxies and iPhone X's of the world.

With a decent hardware arsenal on deck, the OnePlus 5T has the potenital of outshining just about any contemporary Android device you throw in the ring with it: packing a Snapdragon 835 and a whole lot of 8GB of RAM on board, the phone is as among the best-spec'd flagships out there as of now.

  • Display 6.0 inches 2160 x 1080 pixels
  • Camera 16 MP (Dual camera) 16 MP front
  • Hardware Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 8GB RAM
  • Storage 128GB, not expandable
  • Battery 3300 mAh
  • OS Android 10 OnePlus OxygenOS UI

Add the 6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display and  the dual camera, as well as the decent 3,330mAh battery at the rear, and you get a rather well-rounded hardware package that is quite unlikely to disappoint hardware geeks.

But let's directly compare the OnePlus 5T against two of the hotter Android devices out there now, the Galaxy S8+ and the Pixel 2 XL. Which one flaunts the superior hardware package? Let's find out!
