Apple iPhone 8 Plus vs OnePlus 5
Which one is a better fit for your empty pocket? We are set on a course to find out!
The leitmotif here is glass versus metal. Apple is going back to its roots by fully employing a full glass back on the iPhone 8 Plus and a series 7000 aluminum frame, which feels quite premium to the hand. Water-resistance is also here to stay, which is a big plus.
Meanwhile, the full-metal OnePlus 5 is premium in its own way, with clean lines and classic design. It's subjective which one would feel better in your hand, but there's no denying that the glass back of the iPhone adds up to the overall grip, whereas the OnePlus 5 could be quite slippery in certain scenarios and the rather thin side frame is definitely not very helpful. However, the OnePlus 5 is much easier to handle and use due to the smaller dimensions, especially with the way heavier iPhone 8 Plus.

On the other hand, the OnePlus 5 packs a similar 5.5-inch Full HD display on its own as well, but the big difference here is that it's an AMOLED one. It is also fully compliant with the DCI-P3 wide-color gamut. Thus, it can boast some excellent contrast and punchy colors, but overall, it falls short of the iPhone 8 Plus as far as overall color accuracy is concerned.
